Do you remember how to do this technique?  If not click here.

Take a look at my card:

In Life

Isn’t my Dragon, from the Sweet Stamp Shop,  just the cutest little creature you’ve seen!!  So what was stamped on tissue paper here?  Give up?

Only the dragon was stamped on tissue paper!!  I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored him with my new Copic Markers YR16 and BG49.

I used a mask and blended Distress Ink Broken China with my Mini Ink Blending Tool to create my night background.

My sentiment comes from a special stamp set from Mama Elephant and Kelly Purkey that I was given when I attended Mama Elephant’s event early this year.

I added Lawn Fawn Into the Woods Sequin to the card.

So, what do you think?  Please, let me know.

I Love You S’More…

Hello everyone!  I’m here with DoubleClick Skittles Design Team Challenge.  This month the theme is any animal!!

How fun is that!!  I received a new bear stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas called The Great Outdoor, the other day and I know I wanted to use this cute bear on my card.

I also received a new set of Copic Markers that I couldn’t wait to use.  I love them.  I can’t wait to color some more.  I’m getting the hang of blending!!

Take a look at my card:

I Love You S'more

I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Then I used Copic markers R32, R27, YG17, YR4, YR7, E31, E33, E35, E37 and N4 to color my entire image.

I added Clear Wink of Stella to the flame and the red bow in the bows here for added shimmer and shine.

To finish my card off, I added Pumpkin Skittles for embellishment to tie the entire card together.

For those of you who are wondering about my new skittles embellishments, the owner Carri, has put together a video to answer any question you might have regarding their size, color, and how to adhere them to your projects. Please click here for that video.

Hello….

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with CAS(E) this sketch #91!  The sketch artist is N@Ali and her sketch is right up my alley, Clean and Simple!

Take a look at her sketch:

CTS_91

I’m also here with Paper Smooches Sparks: Anything Goes.

Anything Goes PSS FINAL

When I saw this sketch, I wanted to add a butterfly to my card because I love butterflies and they look so pretty on simple cards.

I decided against it because earlier this week I said I was going to start using things in my craft corner that I hardly or never use, so that is what I did.

Take a look at my card:

HelloFlower

This card was pretty easy to create.  I love these colors, they are so pretty.

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my Stampin’ Up! Blackberry Bliss cardstock to a A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50)

2. I cut a 1′ stripe of Stampin’ Up! Moonlight DSP and flagged the end.  I adhered it to my card front using Fuse Fast Adhesive.

3. I cut out two flowers using Stampin’ Up! Blossom Punch out of Stampin’ Up! Hello Honey cardstock and Moonlight DSP.  I adhered the flowers on top of one another catty-corner so you could see both of them using the Fuse Fast Adhesive.

4.  I also cut out 4 “hello’s” using Technique Tuesdays Say It-Hello die out of Stampin’ Up! Hello Honey cardstock.  I adhered to my card base using the Fuse Fast Adhesive.

5.  Something was missing so I added Stampin’ Up! Vintage Faceted Button to the center of the flower.

6. I then added a retired Stampin’ Up! Rhinestone to the center of that button for added interest.  I used the Hello Honey marker to color the rhinestone. I rounded the corners.

7. My daughter said my card wasn’t complete without some Clear Wink of Stella on the word hello.  So I added that, lol.

So what do you think?  Please let me know down below.

Stamping Onto Tissue Paper

Hello everyone!!  I’m here for the first time with CS Take It Make It Design Team Challenge!!!

I’m so excited because I’ve had to really stretch my style for this challenge.  This month’s theme is Stamping Onto Tissue Paper!!!  Yes, you heard me correctly.  Tissue paper!!

White Tissue PaperPhoto credit

Now, don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t easy at first.  I ripped my tissue paper a couple of times because I didn’t take my time.  After the first two tries I said, “slow down Kymona”.  Once I slowed down, I got it.

Take a look at my card:

Happy Birthday on Tissue PaperAre you wondering how I did this?  I’m going to tell you!!!

1. I stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant Make A Wish Stamp Set using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

You want to use a permanent ink so that the image doesn’t bleed or blur.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue ink and a blending tool to add color to my Neenah Solar White card base.

3.  I stamped my stars from Mama Elephant Make A Wish Stamp Set with the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and the hearts from Simon Says Stamp Hey Teacher Stamp Set in Audrey Blue.

4. I then adhered my stamped image tissue image to the front of my card base using  a little bit of  Mod Podge.

5. After I adhered my image to the card base, I added Mod Podge to my entire card front.  Smoothing out as many wringles as I could.

6. Once the the glue dries, the tissue should become transparent.

Important to remember: Some methods of coloring backgrounds are NOT compatible with this techniue!  Spray Inks for example doesn’t not like having water-based glue on top of it.  So using spray inks might not be a good choice to use.

You have to experiment with the technique and your own particular style to fine what works for you and what materials you have at home.

I had a lot of fun playing around with tissue paper on my card.  I think I will try this card again but this time ink the edges of the tissue paper with the ink and see how well it fades with the glue.  I will repost as soon as I try it.

Now its your turn to give Stamping Onto Tissue Paper a try!!

This challenge runs from today Friday, September 5th to Midnight Wednesday, September 24th, 2014. 

The winner will be announce on the CS Take It Make It Blog on September 26th, 2014.

Grapes Are Good..

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with DoubleClick Skittles Challenge.

I’m also submitting this card to Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge: Anything Goes.

SPARKS BADGE

The theme is fruit so I choose to go with grapes!!  Kate C from Kate’s Creative Corner used grapes and they looked so lovely, I had to give it a try.

Take a look at my card:

Just a Note (grapes)

Like I said yesterday in my first post, I want to use some of my craft products that I haven’t used at all.

The first product was the grapes digital image from Paper Smooches. Thank you Judy from Judy’s Card Corner for reminding me.  I couldn’t remember for the life of me.

The second new product is Stampin’ Up! Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities.  I bought these awhile ago and haven’t used them so today was the day.

Grapes colored

I have to say they were easy to use.  I am a Copic girl so it was interesting to use these markers.  They are pretty much the same in terms of blending.

The one thing I notice from the beginning was the caps were hard to get off and even harder to put back on.  They took up a lot of time.  I was afraid the paper would dry so I had to leave the caps off so that I could hurry and blend.

grape skittles closeupMy third new product are my new Pink Sherbert Skittles.  Don’t you just love these little embellishments.  They round the card out.  I adhered these with glossy accents.

For those of you who are wondering about my new skittles embellishments, the owner Carri, has put together a video to answer any question you might have regarding their size, color, and how to adhere them to your projects.  Please click here for that video.

Grapes Close-up

I used my Clear Wink of Stella to add glitter to my grapes and the leaves.  I love how this turned out.

My sentiment is from my Papertrey Ink Fancy That stamp set which I used yesterday for the first time.  I love this stamp set.  The sentiments are fantastic.  I’m glad I decided to finally use it.

So what do you think?  Come on over to DoubleClick Skittles Challenge for a chance to win a fantastic prize and an opportunity to play with your own skittles.  You will love them.

I’m also here with Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.

wed-newchallenge-headerI’ve noticed recently that I’ve ordered stamp sets and do not use them.  So, I decided that I will start creating cards with stamps sets that I’ve never used.

So, today’s card was created with Papertrey Ink’s Fancy That stamp set.  I also wanted to use some cardstock that I haven’t used in a while.  So I decided on Stampin’ Up! new in color Blackberry Bliss and Lost Lagoon cardstock.

These two colors together really look so nice together.

Take a look at my card:

Thanks

Take a look at my rhinestones.  I colored them with the same colors that’s in the medallion.

Close up of the medallion

The colors in the medallion are Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey all from Stampin’ Up’s new in colors markers.

I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Thanks die from Lost Lagoon card stock 4 times for dimension.

Fruits, Fruits and more Fruits!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m back again for the third DoubleClick Challenge!  The theme is, you guessed it, its fruit!!

The summer time is full of delicious fruits from all over the world.

Let me tell you what surprised me the other day.  My friend who lives off of one of the busiest streets in Queens, has a neighbor who has a pear tree in the front of their house.  I was blown away.  I never saw a fruit tree in city, upstate yes, but not down in the city.  Can you eat the fruits?  Are they sweet?  I wanted to know but was too scared to ask for one.  So what I did was take a picture of the tree as proof that it exist.

Take a look for your self:

Pear Tree

How beautiful is that tree full of fruit!!  Makes you want one.  Ok, ok I digress!  On to the challenge.  Its all about fruit!

I choose to go with tangerines!  They are so delicious and you can peel it by yourself.  The sweeter the better for me.

Take a look at my card:

Hello Tangerine

These tiny tangerine halves look so good, you almost want to eat them all.  Let’s talk about how I create this nice CAS card.

1. My Stampin’ UP! Tangerine Tango  card base is an A2 card which measures 4.25 x 5.50 scored at 5.50.

2. My Neenah Solor White card panel measures 4 x 5.25. I rounded the corners with a retired Stampin’ Up! punch.

3. I used Stamp’ Up! retire Tart and Tangy Stamp Set to stamp my tangerines 3 times out of Tangerine Tango ink.

4. I used Stampin’ Up! 1-1/4″ Circle Punch to punch out my tangerines.

5. I adhered the tangerines to the card panel with Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals.

6. I used Stampin’ Up! Hi There Stamp Set to stamp the Hello at the bottom of my card base with Versafine black ink.

7. I adhered the card panel to the card base using Stampin’ UP! Dimensionals.

7. I added Wink of Stella to the tangerine petals for added glare.

8. For my finishing touch, I added my PUMPKIN SKITTLES to the center of my tangerines and after my hello.

Clean and Simple at its best.

So tell me what do you think?

Now its your turn to play along.  You have until September 2 to enter the challenge.

The lucky winner will win the nice prize pack you see below:

You Rock Teacher!!

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Blog Challenge and Word Art Wednesday.

wed-newchallenge-header

The theme is my favorite!!  It’s Back To School!  Yayyyyy!  If you’ve been following my blog you know how I feel about new paper, pens, pencils, notebooks and crayons.  I love the smell of new school supplies.  I get excited when my daughter gets her list from school.  We are one of the first people in the store.  I end up buying way to many supplies, LOL.

The card I made is for all of the teachers in the world.  Teachers have the hardest job in the world to me.  They deal with little people all day and those little people have different personalities.  Can you imagine all of them talking at the same time, lol!!  Oh no!!

On a serious note, they are responsible for preparing our children for life.  They teach them all of the fundamentals they will need to be great people in this world.  That is a big job.  With that said, I like to let my children’s teacher know they are appreciated.

Take a look at my card:

You Rock Teacher

I just love how this card came out.  The embossing looks so good against my favorite color cardstock, Audrey Blue.  I also used Simon Says Stamp Teacher’s Pet New Release for this card.

Here is how I created this card:

1. My card base measures 4.25 x 5.50 scored at 5.50 is Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue cardstock!!  So pretty to me.  My card panel measures 4 x 5.25 and its Neenah Solar White cardstock.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Scrambled Letters Stencil and Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste to create my background on my card panel.

3. Then I used Simon Says Stamp Lunch Box Notes Craft Die to cut my frame out of Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Delight cardstock, the stars out of Stampin’ Up! Real Red cardstock and the small window out of Simon Says Audrey Blue cardstock.

4. I used Simon Says Stamp Teacher Craft Dies to cut the word teacher out of Stampin’ Up! Real Red cardstock.

Your Rock Teacher closeup

5. Now its time to put my card together.  I stamped “You Rock!” from Simon Says Stamp Lunch Box Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and then embossed it with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.

You Rock Teacher die front

6. I attach the square piece to the frame and two of the stars to the embossed panel using foam adhesive.  I attached the teacher die and one of the stars with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

You Rock Teacher wink of stella

7. For the finishing touch, I added a Clear Wink of Stella to the stars and the die cut teacher.

You Rock Teacher frontNicely done!  What do you think?  Let me know.

By the way, this card was made for my Blogging and Instagram friend Malini from My Little Pink Craft Kitchen.  She is a school teacher and I wanted to show her my appreciation. Enjoy!!

Life Is A Story…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today playing with the Muse Challenge #81.  Today’s Muse is Marion Vagg and her card is absolutely gorgeous.

Take a look at her card:

IMG_3336.CR2Marion Vagg

When I saw this card, my mouth dropped.  I love the colors, the glitter, the butterfly just amazing.

I knew what I wanted to create.  I wanted my card to be similar but different.

I’m also playing along with CAS-UAL FRIDAYS Challenge Tic Tac Toe

cfc134

Chevrons, Black and Sequins is my Tic Tac Toe.

Take a look at my card:

Life is a Story

Can you tell how my card is different from Marion?

1. My butterfly is cut out of my stencil card panel.

2. The glitter is on my butterfly wings and not on the rest of the card.

3.  I decided to use only two colors but when blended it created a third color.

This is how I created this card:

1.  My card base is an A2 size card, 4.25 x 5.50 and my card panel measures 4 x 5.25.

     Semi Completed Stencil   Completed Stencil

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Zig Zag Stencil and Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise and Hawaiian Shores Ink to create my stenciled panel.

This stencil is so delicate that you can’t rub the ink onto the stencil, you have to pounce it on the the stencil as to not break the stencil.

Life is a Story Sideview

3. I used my Memory Box Asti Butterfly Wings to partial die cut the butterfly wings out of my stenciled piece.

4. I used Papertrey Ink’s Building Block Sentiment Stamp Set to stamp “Life Is A Story” on a piece of black card stock.

5. I used Stampin’ Up! Bitty Banners Framelits to cut out a banner out of my sentiment.

6. I used foam adhesive to add my banner to the front of my stenciled panel.

Life is a Story close up

Life is a Story glitter wings

7. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the butterfly wings for some sparkle and Doodlebug Beetle Black Sprinkles in the center of the butterfly wings.

That’s my card for today.  What do you think?

This just in:

A friend of mines notified me today that a good friend of hers daughter past away this weekend.  The little girl whose name is Katy was only 6 years old.  She was dealing with a bad heart.  I can’t image how her parents are feeling.  I’m a mom of 2 and they are my life-line. 

I’m going to send this card to her parents and brother, with hopes of lifting their spirits.  Life is a story and they have one to tell.  For me the butterfly symbolizes hope and that Katy is in a better place, no more pain or surgeries.  Please keep them in your prayers and if you want to send them a card too let me know!

Today Is A Good Day!!

Hello everyone!  I’m here today playing along with the Muse Challenge #80 this week.  The Muse this week is Therese Calvird.

Take a look at her card:

Amazing!Therese Calvird

Take a look at my card that I created:

Today

I wanted to keep this card nice and simple just like Therese card. I’m not really good with floral stamps.  I never know what to do with them.  So I used these blossom stamps because they are easier to maneuver to me.

1. I cut my card base out of Bazzill Marshmallow to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50 scored at 5.50).

2. My card panels are Stampin’ Up! Blackberry Bliss (3.75 x 5) and Hello Honey cardstock (3-10/16 x 4-14/16).

3. On the Hello Honey cardstock, I stamped Papertrey Ink’s Oopsie Daisy stamp set with Memento Black Ink.

4.  I stamped the inside of the flower using the same stamp set with Hello Honey ink.

5. I used Papertrey Ink’s Circle Scribbles Die to cut out the medium scribble with Stampin’ Up! Blackberry Bliss cardstock.

6. I adhered that scribble piece with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

7. I used Papertrey Ink’s Wet Paint Cuts II ” Today” from Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock.  I adhered that to the scribble with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

8. I added Stampin’ Up! Rhinestones to the center of the flowers.

Very easy, simple card to recreate.

So, what do you think?  Do you like this card? Let me know.
