Take a look at the card I created for this hop:

Believe with all your heart (SSS)

Totally awesome!!  This Black Slinky Dress stamp was one of the first stamps that Suzy sent me when we were starting up the design team for the first time.  So this is a timeless classic for me.

Black Slinky Dress

After creating this card, my daughter asked me, “what does this sentiment have to do with the dresses”?  I told her, “everyone has a right to feel sexy and getting into this dress will surely make us feel that way, but unless we believe with all of our hearts that we are sexy from within, we can’t expect people to see that beauty when we aren’t in this dress”.  She said ok mom!  LOL!!!

There is education even in card making!!

{Clean and Simple} CASology 194 – Mom

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

This week’s cue card is:

Week 194 - Mom

Take a look at my card:

Love you Mom (CAS)

I can’t believe Mother’s day is around the corner.  Time is flying by so quickly. It was just New Years, LOL!!

When I saw this  cue card, I went searching for a Mother’s Day stamp set and can you believe I didn’t buy any in 2016!!  I really thought I that I did. So, I searched my stash and found this WPlus9 Love Mom set that I bought last year and its perfect.  How many stamps do you need that says mom.  One! – and that is what I have!  LOL!!

Creating this card was super easy.

I used Mama Elephant Femme Frame to die cut the Lawn Fawn Sunflower card stock.  I made a mistake.  Instead of leaving the top of the card uncut, I cut the card base in two.

So I scored the top of the back card base and taped them together using Tombow Extreme Adhesive.

Mistake (CAS)

What a way to save the cardstock!!

I used the smaller square die cut to cut the front panel.

I used the Mini Misti to stamp the sentiment and the heart on the front panel. Using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and Lawn Fawn Lobster Ink.

The card panel was adhered to the card base using Plus Glue Tape.

Once my card was complete it look way to bare so I decided that it needed one more thing.

Plain (CAS)

So I decided after much thought to add, some Papertrey Ink Cream Cotton Baker’s Twine.  I used the number 11 Penblade’s trimming grove to cut the twine.

Nice finished touch.

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Sparkle and Shine Challenge!!!  How exciting is this!!! 

Since its the fifteen of the month, its time for our new challenge!!!

Here is the inspiration photo that guided us this time around:

color image

Take a look at my card:

Happy Day (SS)

I was so unsure what I was going to create for this challenge.  Then my new stamp set from Darkroom Door Fine Flowers arrived and I had to try it out.

I love this whimsical flower and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.

To create this card, all I did was score the top of the card front randomly. Then I stamped the flower image using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink. After that I colored the flowers using Copic V15, V06, V09 and Y19. Once that was completed, I used Concord and 9th Sophisticated Script stamp set to stamp the sentiment.

What do you think?

Now its your turn to give this challenge a try!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Right At Home!!

The winner of this challenge will receive a $25 gift card to their online store and will be asked to be our Guest Designer for the next month.

Did You Know Series!

I’m back again this week with the same product that I talked about last month.

It’s the @primamarketinginc Christina Adolph Adhesive Rub-Ons! I can’t get enough of these rub-ons!! You can do so much with them.

1. I showed you how to use foil with them last month and this past Saturday.
2. Yesterday, I show you how to use them with embossing powder.
3. Today, I’m going to show you what they look like on top of a watercolor panel using all of the goodies you see above!

The shine is amazing!!  No stamping required!! These cards were done in 6 mins tops. The watercolor was heat set.

Here are some closeups:

image2 (3)
Note: you have to rub just a little bit harder since the watercolor paper has some tooth!

I created a video to show you how I used the rub-ons with foil to create the purple card above.

Any questions?  Let me know below!!

I think these little boxes are the cutes thing.  They are even easier to create.

Here’s how:

  1. Use Stampin’ UP! Baker’s Box Thinlits Die to cut out two pieces out of Neenah Desert Storm card stock.
  2. Assembly the box according to the score lines.
  3. For box 1: Cut out 2×2 square pieces of pattern paper and adhere it to the four panels of the box.
  4. For box 2: Cut 13inches of ribbon and wrap it around the box, adhering it at the bottom of the box.
  5. For both boxes: Stamp the sentiment from Learning is Fun and the sentiment from Spectacular Teacher onto black card stock.  Sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat set.
  6. Die cut each tag out and adhere them to the box using foam tape.
  7. Close Box 1 by string ribbon through the holes.

Nice and easy.  What do you think? What are you creating for the teachers in your life?  Please let me know below.
