Hey everyone!! I’m up on the Clearsnap Blog today sharing how I decorated a photo frame with ink for the May Color Challenge.

Take a look at the Inspiration photo:

Clearsnap-MAY-2016-Color-Challenge

My project today is a super cool project.  I decorated a photo frame with ink and had a blast doing it. The best part about this photo frame is its a gift for my dad!

Now onto my photo frame:

Oh I love how this frame turned out!! The colors are fantastic!! The best part of this process is no drying time!! The ink dries almost immediately!

Here’s how this frame was created:

Cover your workstation up with a craft mat! I can’t stress that enough.

Then apply the ink directly to the frame using the ink pad itself.

With the second color, press the ink pad down onto the craft mat, leaving some ink residue behind.

Second color

With a craft paint brush pick up the ink and apply it to the edge.

NOTE: You have to move fast because this ink dries super fast.

Pick up ink

Once your done applying the color to the edges, add color to white cardstock to create a matching flower.

Create a flower using a die and the color cardstock.

Create a flower

Then you stamp whatever sentiment you want on the frame.  The frame is complete.

Take a look at it again:

I gave the frame to my dad and he loved it!!  Something to hold onto for a long time to come.  Now my brothers and sister know that I’m the favorite so they don’t mind not being included.  LOL!!!

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

{Clean and Simple} CASology 191 – Washi

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 191 - Washi

Take a look at my card:

Washi (CAS)

I’m so tickled by my card.  I love how the numbers look like they come with the newsprint on them.  Its Washi Tape!! I used Tim Holtz’s Symphony Tissue Tape and Penny Black By The Number Die.

To create this card:

  1. Add 5 strips of washi tape to white cardstock.
  2. Use the die cut to cut the washi cover cardstock.
  3. Adhere the die cut to the cardbase using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

Nice and simple!

I was having so much fun, that I had to create another card.

Enjoy Washi (CAS)

This time I used some new watercolor washi tape that I picked up from Michaels. I love this tape.  So super pretty. I have to say that I’m super luck to have this set of washi tape.  I hear everyone saying they can’t find these.  I might have to search them out and pick up another for a giveaway, maybe!!

washi

To create this card:

  1. Add two strips of tape on the bottom of my card base.
  2. Use Simon Says Stamp Painted Enjoy Die to cut one word out.
  3. Adhere it right above the washi tape with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

Nice and easy clean and simple card!!

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

Wedding Invitations

Hello everyone!!  I’m here to share with you some wedding invitations that I created for my cousins wedding in Jamaica, WI this July!!

I was commissioned to create 105 invitations with little directions.  The colors are blue, coral and white.  That was all I had to go on and i didn’t have a lot time to create them since they needed to go out so that people could make their travel plans.

Take a look at the invites:

Invitation complete

You have the invitation and envelope, reply card and envelope and a ribbon closure.

Check out my journey:

To create the invitation base, I used the envelope punch board to create an envelope but this is no ordinary envelope.

Invitation base

Once these card bases were cut and scored, the actually invite was created digitally and sent to print.

Once they printed, they were cut and adhered inside the blue base with Tombow Stamp Runner Adhesive.

Cut invites

Next up were the envelopes.  105 envelopes were cut using a Stampin’ Trimmer. They were adhered together with Tombow Extreme Adhesive.

envelope

Scoring the cardstock is up next.

envelope 2

The reply cards were created digitally as well.  Printed and sized perfectly.  The envelopes were created for those as well.

Once all of the paper was cut and put together.  The invitations were complete.

Invitation sets

I have to admit, I was given a month and a half to complete these and it was hard work.

105 cut invitation bases cut and scored
105 invitations cut
105 envelops cut and scored
105 reply cards cut
105 reply envelops cut and scored
105 ribbons

That is a lot of paper cut by hand!!

Here is some of the scraps left:

This is just one table!!

I’m glad they turned out so pretty and that I was able to make my cousins happy!!

What do you think?  Should I go into the invitation business? Let me know below.

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 190 - Weather

Take a look at my card:

Rain all the time (CAS)

I love this little guy in this stamp set.  He looks so sad which is perfect for this cue card, weather. We are now in Spring, so the rain is coming.  Perfect for our flowers but not for me.  I do not like getting wet.

Creating this card was easy:

  1. I die cut the card base using Mama Elephant Femme Frames.
  2. Then I stamped all of my images from Create a Smile Bad Day stamp set using the Mini Misti.
  3. I colored these images with Tombow Recycled Color Pencils.
  4. To create the highlights on the the little fellows belly and the top of the umbrella, I used Tombow Sand Eraser.

Nice and easy clean and simple card!!

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