Take Your Time To Smile

I love the way this gold flower looks.  So classy!!

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut Neenah Desert Storm cardstock to an A2 size card, 4.25 x 5.50.

2. I cut my card panel to 3.25 x 4.75.

3. I used Create A Smile Botanical Love to stamp the big flower in Versamark ink and embossed it with Ranger Enchanted Gold then heat set it.

4. I added Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape and Stacked With Love Washi Tape to the side of my card panel.

5. I attached my card panel with foam adhesive.

6. I added Your Next Stamp Black Gumdrops for added interest.

Lets take another look at that flower:

Take Your To Time To Smile 3

Isn’t it pretty??  I love it.  It sparkles in the light.  I have to use this embossing powder more often.

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!!

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.

Red Happy Birthday…

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

This months theme is Birthday!  I’m happy about this because you can’t have enough birthday cards on hand.

I choose to use a couple of dies and embossing paste to create my card for today.

Take a look at my card:

Happy Birthday balloons

I saw a card created by Laura Bassen and I fell in love with the design.  I was so excited to see her use the new Simon Says Stamps Stitched Rectangles die set.  I order mines and it came just in time to create this card.

To create this card:

1. I started with a piece of Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler cardstock and cut it to an A2 size card.

2. Then I used Simon Says Stamp Medium Dots Stencil and Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste to create the dots in the center of the cardstock.

3. I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock to add to the top of my card base.

4.  I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles to cut out a window in the card panel.

5. I cut two balloons using Simon Says Stamp Balloons Craft Die to cut two balloons.  I add Stampin Up! Whisper White Barkers Twine.  I adhered the balloons with foam adhesive. I added foam adhesive to the back of the card panel and centered it onto the card base.

6. I stamped my sentiment using Simon Says Stamp More Sketchy Banner Greetings.  I cut the tail off and adhered the banner to the right side of the card.

7. I added Rudolph Red Skittle to the banner.  Then I added Clear Wink of Stella to my balloons.

Finished.  Very easy to recreate.

What do you think? Let me know.  Now its your turn to join us and play along with our challenge this month. I hope to see you there!!

Die-cut Turn Stencil, How?

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #179: Emboss Resist Using Diecut.

make-it-monday

I’m so excited to be able to play along with them this week.  I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to play with them in awhile.

I’m also playing along with Simon Says Stamp: Create Your Own Background!

wed-newchallenge-header Laura Bassen showed us how to stretch our die cuts by using them as a stencil to emboss resist!  I had so much fun creating this card.

Take a look at my card:

Hello Someone Loves You

1. I used Papertrey Ink’s Circle Die Cover Plate to create my background.

Stencil made

2. I  die cut the cover plate and taped it down over my Neenah Solar White Card Stock card panel.

3. I applied the Versamark Ink directly on top of my circle stencil.

4. I added Hero Arts White Embossing powder to the versamark card panel.  I heat set it.

5. I blended Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise, Hibicus Burst and Pure Poppy with my Mini Ink Blending Tool on my embossed card base.

6. I used a damp napkin and wiped of the ink from my embossed circle so that they look nice and white.

7. I cut two scribbles out of vellum using the Papertrey Ink’s Circle Scribbles Die.

8. I cut two hello’s from Lawn Fawn Scripty Hello Die out of Stampin’ Up! Basic Black cardstock.

9.  I stamped my sentiment from Papertrey Ink Wet Paint III on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

10. I adhered the scribbles down with Tombo Multipurpose Glue, then added the hello die on top of that. I added the stamp sentiment underneath the hello.

11. I added Wink of Stella to the hello die cut.

I think this card turned out very pretty.  I love how the colors blended together.  So tell me what you think.

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!!
