This month’s theme is Take a Stamp!!  That means take any stamp and create something, anything goes!! Now if that isn’t easy, I’m not sure what is!!

Take a look at my card:

Take Flight (TIMI)

I love the size of this card.  It measures 2.50 x 5.25.

To get the card started, I stenciled the background using one of Tim Holtz Mini stencil set 7 and distress ink: Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon.

Then I stamped So Suzy Stamps Girl With Balloons using Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink. Then I stamped So Suzy Stamp Take Flight sentiment using Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink.

Nice, easy but totally amazing.

{Clean and Simple} CASology 214 – Beach

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

This week’s cue card:

Week 214 - Beach

Take a look at my card:

Hello Friend (CAS)

I have I told you how much I do not like the fall or winter!  I hate being cold and to see the summer end is killing me.  I love how we are using this cue card now!  The weather is changing and its no longer 90 degrees outside.  So going to the beach is about to be in our distant memory.

When I sat down to create my card, I immediately thought of So Suzy Stamps new release. The Beach Grass stamp to be exact!! This stamp set is just perfect for this week’s challenge.

I love how the grass gives the feeling of motion, the nice ocean breeze.  Oh when I close my eyes, I can feel it!  Can you?

Creating this card was easy as 1-2-3!

  • I used a A2 (4.25×5.50) size card base to start with.
  • Then I used the Mini Misti to stamp the Beach Grass stamp set across the front of the card in black.
  • After that I used Concord & 9th Flourish stamp set to stamp the sentiment.
  • Last but not least, I rounded the top right corner for added interest.

Nice and easy, I must say.  I love how the black and white keeps the card elegant.  Concord & 9th sentiment font is so fitting for this card as well.

Are you inspired to play along?  Please let me know below!

For more inspiration, check out my fellow Design Team members blog for more awesome work.

This release is super cute!!  Yesterday’s sneak peek was fun.

If you’ve been hopping along, you would have arrived from Isha’s blog and if you’d like to start from the beginning, you can click on over to the linky at the bottom of this post and start at Laura’s blog.

My favorite set from this release is the SpookTacular Halloween Stamp Set! Its down below.

Are you ready for my big reveal?

Take a look at my cards:

Card one:

Spok-tacular Halloween

YNS Supplies: SpookTacular Halloween,  SpookTacular Halloween DiesWoodlands Paper Pack, Stitched Frame Dye Set

Other Supplies: Recollections Heavyweight White Cardstock, Colorbox Black Embossing Powder, Copic Markers, Recollections Heavyweight Black Cardstock,Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink

I haven’t used my Copic Markers in such a long time that I had to pull them out for this card. This little guys are so cute and were begging to be colored.

All I did to create this card was cut a 4×4 base card out of the heavyweight black cardstock. Then I used the stitched frame die set to cut out a frame from the Woodlands paper pack.  After that I stamped the sentiment along the four boarders and embossed it with black embossing powder.  Then I adhered the frame to the card front.  Using some Copic Markers, I colored the two images and then die cut them out.  I adhered them to the card front inside the frame with dimensionals.

Super cute.

Card two:

Lunch box notes (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Kids Activity Planning, Stitched Frame Die, Swirly Pattern Paper

Other Supplies:Recollections Heavyweight White Cardstock, Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink, Tombow Irojiten Tranquil and Vivid Coloring Pencil

For these cute little lunchbox notes, I cut the white heavyweight cardstock to a 3×3 size.  Then I die cut the Swirly patten paper out using the small stitched frame die and adhered it to the front of the card base.  Using the Mini Misti, I stamped different images and sentiments from the Kids Activity Planning set and colored them in using coloring pencils.

Easy does it!!  These notes are for my daughter.  I will put one in her lunchbox everyday.

So, what do you think?

I had so much fun creating these cards to inspire all of you and show you the versatility of the stamp sets! Which one of these items are favorite?  I would love to hear from you!

With these pencils, its so easy to blend colors.  They create such vibrant colors. Adding the white gel pen dots are a super fun addition that makes the flower petals stand out.

Super easy and relaxing to make!!

Stencil Tag – a2z Scrapbooking September 2016 Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a new a2z Scrapbooking Challenge. The theme this month is Make It A Tag!! 

Take a look at the card I created:

Hello Tag (a2z)

I used Hero Arts Asian Flower Pattern Stencil and Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door) to create the background on the white tag that I cut out by hand.

Then I used Hero Arts Hello Stamp and Cuts set to cut out the word hello and adhered it to the front of the tag with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. After that I stamped the rest of the sentiment underneath the die cut.

I added a white ribbon to the top of the tag to finish it off.

Super, super easy to create.

What do you think?

I hope you love what you see and that it inspires you to join us this month. You have the entire month to create a new project and enter it into our challenge. By entering you will have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Store. Winner will be announced on the 7th of September.  Good Luck!
