Waffle Flower Crafts – Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here with our new Waffle Flower Crafts Photo Inspiration Challenge!!!

This is our seventh challenge for 2015. I can’t believe we are at the end of April already!!  It just started yesterday, LOL.  Seriously, where did the time go?  Spring is creep in slowly on the Northeast coast.  I can’t wait for it to get warmer.

Waffle Flower Photo Inspiration

These colors remind me of spring!!  Which I hope gets here soon.  I have to admit, this photo really gave me a run for my money.  I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to do.

It took me two weeks and some new stamps to figure out what I want to do.

Take a look at my card:

Smile It Looks Good On You (WFC)

Once I received my new stamps and dies, I figured out what I wanted to do.

I decided to go with the mirror in the photo! So that is what I created, a mirror with no glass!

Here is how I created my card:

1. I cut my Simon Says Stamp Mint cardstock to 5 x 10 scored at 5.

2. I die cut Waffle Flower Crafts Doily Square die out of Stampin’ Up! Brushed Gold cardstock.

3. I placed my cardstock on my new Misti so that I could place my stamps inside my frame for perfect placement.

Using misti

4.I used Waffle Flower Crafts Planted Stamp Set to stamp my potted flower with Waffle Flower Crafts Spring Blend Inks.

5.I used Waffle Flower Crafts Doily Circle Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment and hearts with the same Spring Blend Ink.

6. I attached my frame with foam adhesive.

7. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the hearts and smile.

I’m super excited about my card.  It turned out very pretty.  I’m glad I waited for the new release.

So what do you think?  Please let me know.

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

CASology 140 – Spring

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

Week 140 - SpringYayyyy!! This cue card makes me happy!!  Spring means sunshine, warmer weather, birds chirping, my BIRTHDAY (April 4) and rain!!  LOL, yes rain! Spring brings a lot of rain.

So, for my card I thought of rain.  Take a look at my card:

Happy Spring (CAS)

I just love this stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  Abby is so cute!! I couldn’t wait to sit and color her! Look at that umbrella!!

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my card base to 4.25 x 5.50, scored at 4.25.

2. I stamped Abby and the umbrella from Simon Says Stamp Abby’s Spring using My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink.

3. I used Copic Markers to color Abby and her umbrella.

R24, YR68, Y06, G17, E00, E23, E11, E21, E33, E37 and W5.

4. I used the Simon Says Stamp Spring Showers Wafer coordinating die to cut out Abby and the umbrella.

5. I placed Abby and the umbrella down on my card base and covered them with Simon Says Stamp Raindrop Stencil. I used post-it tape to hold the stencil in place.

Masking Abby off

6. I took my time and pounced Distress Salty Ocean Ink onto the raindrop stencil without touch Abby or the umbrella.

7. I stamped the sentiment and adhered Abby and the umbrella with foam adhesive.

Super doper easy and fun.  I didn’t do much blending.  I just colored and that was stress relieving for me.

So what will you come up with? I can’t wait to see!

Stamping on Pattern Paper

Hello everyone!!  I am here today with CAS(E) this sketch!!  I haven’t had a chance to play with them in awhile, so happy I can today.

CAS(E) This Sketch #116 was done by Leigh Penner.  Take a look at her sketch:

CTS_Sketch_116When I saw this sketch, I know immediately what I stamp set I wanted to use.  Since I have all of this “new stuff”, I figure why not use it!

Take a look at my card:

Bear Hugz

Oh baby!!  Isn’t this the cutest bear you’ve seen!  I want a hug from him!!  What about those dies that is behind him?  Totally awesome, right!!

Here is how I created this card:

1.  I started out with Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock.  I cut it to an A2 size card, 4.25 x 5.50.

2. I used 2 of the bigger dies from Lil’ inker designs Wonky Squares Die to die cut Lawn Fawn Let’s Polka, Mon Amie pattern paper and Neenah Solar White cardstock.

3. I stamped Simon Says Stamp Make A Splash Set to stamp my little bear and used the coordinating die to cut it out.

4. I used Copic marker R24 and colored his heart in.

5. I added all of the pieces with foam adhesive.

6. I added Your Next Stamp Crystal Clear Gumdrops for added interest.

So what do you think?  Please leave me a comment below!!

2. I taped my Hero Arts Basic Grey Triangle Pattern Stencil on top of my middle card panel.  I used Versamark ink and stamped directly on top of my stencil.

3. I added Wow- Cable Car Red embossing powder on top of my stamp image then heated it up. Then I set that panel aside to cool down.

Sparkle and Shine…

Hello everyone!  I’m playing with Addicted to CAS.  I haven’t played with them in such a long time.  I’m glad I’m able to play this week.  I love their code word this week, its DOTS!!

ATCAS - code word dotsWhen I saw that code word, I knew that I had to join.  I just received this beautiful die in the mail that is perfect for this challenge.

Take a look at my card:

Sparkle and Shine

Take a look at all of those dots.  I love how the red glitter paper shines from behind.

This is how this card was created:

1. I cut my card base to an A2 size card, 4.24 x 5.50.

2. I used Memory Box Small Circle Burst die to cut out all of my dots and circle.

3.  I cut a small piece of red glitter paper from American Crafts to go behind the dots and circle.

4. I used my new Simon Says Stamp Sparkle & Shine stamp set to stamp my sentiment with the Mini Distress Embossing Ink from the card kit.

5. I used Liquid Platinum embossing powder on the stamped sentiment.

I have to say I truly love this liquid platinum embossing powder.  It so smooth and pretty.  I am truly impressed.  This is must have in my craft room from now on.

6. To finish my card, I tied a bow with Silver ??? and rounded two of the corners with my corner chomper.

So what do you think?  I love how this card turned out. Let me know below.  I would love to hear from you.

Take a look at my card:

Joy with clothespin

I just love how my card turned out.  I saw the fabulous Laura Bassen create a card like this and I knew I had to give it a try. I love the simplicity in the design.  So I gather all of my supplies and pulled this card off.

Creating this card was easy because everything was die cut!

I love how the pop of red from Lawn Fawn’s Joy die stand out on Papertrey Ink’s Journal Card 5 Die and matches the hint of red on the pattern paper.

I used Technique Tuesday’s Story Card Die to cut Lawn Fawn’s Snow Day patten paper.

I added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins.

I tied Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Bakers Twine on the Stampin’ Up! clothespin.

Easy and no stamping.

So, what do you think?  Please let me know below.  I would love to hear from you.
