When I saw the cue card and who the sponsor was, I knew I had the perfect stamp set for this challenge!!

To create this card, I stamped the sentiment and two hearts from Concord & 9th Love You. Mean It., using Versafine Black ink.  Then I cut the front card panel down by 1.5 inches.  I then added a stripe of pattern paper behind that front panel.  I added some glossy accents to the two hearts for an added pop! Nice and easy!!

I created another card but thought it was way to simple.  I like this one!! I used the circle stamp this time!

Your Next Stamp DT Dare – Something Old, Something New

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Your Next Stamp and our DT Dare!!!

What is a DT Dare you ask? It’s a fun monthly challenge for the YNS design team to show case more fabulous projects using the new release products!!

YNS-DARE-Badge

Fun right!!

Wait there is more!!  If you leave a comment on the YNS blog post you could Win a YNS Stamp Set of your choice!!! 

Exciting right!!  It sure is for me!!

The DT Dare Challenge this month is Something Old, Something New!!  The design team was asked to create a project using one of the new stamp sets from the January release.

Take a look at my card:

Hi there (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Puppy Love, Crystal Clear Gumdrops

Other supplies: Retired Stampin’ Up! DSP, Retired Stampin’ Up! Photo Frame Die, Recollections White Card stock, Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink, Versafine Black Ink, 3M Foam Tape

Can you guess what’s old and what’s new?

For old, if you guessed, the DSP and the Photo Frame Die you are right!  Leaving the Puppy Love Stamp Set as the new item!

For this card, I stamped the heart randomly on the white card stock using the real red ink.  Then I cut a piece of the DSP a little smaller then the card base and adhered it to the card base with 3M foam tape.  After that I cut another piece of the DSP even smaller then the first one and attached that with foam tape. I stamped the heart and the sentiment using the real red ink and the Versamark ink. After that I adhered the frame and gumdrops.

There are plenty of steps but they are doable.

Tip: Stamp your image and sentiment before you adhere the DSP to the card front. 

What do you think?  Please let me know below.

Super simple and easy.

So tell me what you think of this challenge? I would love to know, let me know below!

CASology 181 – Clear

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Cue Card just for you!!  

This week’s cue card is :

Week 181 - Clear

Take a look at my card:

Hello clear (CAS)

I couldn’t help myself when I saw the cue card!!  I knew I wanted to use acetate as my card base.  There is nothing like a clear card, LOL!!!

Creating  this card was super easy.  I just cut the acetate to an A2 card size, 4.25 by 5.50, scored at 4.25.  Then I used Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Journaling Card Die set to cut out four speech bubbles out of Recollection black card stock.  After that I die cut Lawn Fawn Scripty Hello out of a scrap piece of watercolor paper I create earlier in the week.

watercolor pieces

I also cut it twice more for dimension. I adhered the hello to the speech bubble using Tomow’s Stamp Runner then to the acetate. The extra speech bubble was added to the inside as to not show the adhesive and for a place for a message.

That’s it!!  It took me less then 4 minutes to make this card and I photographed it at night!!  It can’t get any better then that.

I absolutely love how this card turned out.

What do you think?  Please leave a comment below letting me know.
