So stay tune!

Now on to my card:

Go and Celebrate (TDD)

The Balloon Die Set comes with 6 balloon dies ranging from small to big!!

I used the largest die to create this card.  Super easy to use and check out that stitching!!  It gives the balloon such a nice finished look.

To create these cards, I just die cut the balloon adhered them to the top left portion of the card.  I used Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Bakers Twine.  I used Mama Elephant Make A Wish Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment using Lawn Fawn Deep Sea Ink.  I added Clear Wink of Stella to the sentiment and the stars.

Lets Party Celebrate (TDD)

 

I used some glitter paper to create these balloons.  I love how they turned out.

To create these cards, I just die cut the balloon adhered them to the top left portion of the card.  I used my Copic Multiliner to draw the strings.  I used Simon Says Stamp Birthday Big Wishes Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

Now you see those two stars in between my sentiment?  Well, I had to add those because some of the black ink caught my paper on the pink balloon while I was stamping it.  I think I saved it pretty well. I used Lucy Adams Star Shine Sparkly Sequin to save the day.

So what do you think?  Let me know below.

Isn’t this butterfly’s colors pretty! I love it.  This photo reminded me of nature and the fall.  So that is what I went back to.

Take a look at my card:

Thankful For You (WFC)

The colors in the picture reminded me of Lawn Fawn’s Sweater Weather colors.  So I went straight to that paper pack for this card.

To create this card:

It’s pretty straight forward.

1. I dry embossed the front of my card panel with Stampin’ Up! Decorative Dots Textured Embossing Folder.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Slopes and Hills  Die to cut Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather patten paper to a half circle.

3. I attached Lawn Fawn Trimming to the front of the pattern paper and then adhered the panel to the top of the card base.

4. I stamped my sentiment using Waffle Flower Crafts Holiday Labels – Give Thanks Set with My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.

5. I added Your Next Stamp Black Gumdrops to tie in the black from the sentiment.

There you have it!! Not hard at all.

So what do you think? Please let me now. Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!

I also linking this card to Virginia’s View Challenge #14: Layers and Dimensions.

So Suzy Stamps April Release Blog Hop

April Blog Hop

 

Hello everyone!! I’m here with So Suzy Stamps.  Welcome to the full reveal and blog hop of So Suzy Stamps April Release!!  If you arrived here from So Suzy Stamps blog, then your on the right track.  If you arrived randomly, the blog hop starts at So Suzy Stamps blog.  Yuu don’t want to miss out on any of my design team members cards.  They did a fabulous job.

Check out the card I created for this hop:

Happy Birthday

I used the Girl on the Swing Stamp to create my card.  This little girl is so cute.  I had to take my time and color her.

I have to admit I messed up just a little bit.  Instead of using my new MFT Hybrid Black Ink or my Memento Black Ink, I used the VersaFine Black Onyx and stamped my image.

Big no, no!  The black ink bleeds. When I realized what happen, I was already to far gone with my coloring. I just took my sweet time and tried not to touch the stamped edge.

That was hard to do.  The image is so intricate that I had to get really close.  Never again will I make that mistake!!

In any case, she turned out well.  This card is a very CAS card.  Your attention is drawn to the girl on the swing.

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my cardstock to 4.25 x 5.50 scored at 4.25.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Die to cut out my circle off of the side of my card front.

3. I stamped my So Suzy Stamps Girl on the Swing image inside the circle cut out.

4. I used Copic Markers to color my image:

Dress, shoes and antennas: V01, V04, V06

Winks: BG11, BG13, BG15

Swing Bench: E13, E15

Swing String: C3

Skin: Eoo, E11

Hair: E33, E35

5. I attached Stampin’ UP! Coastal Cabana Bakers Twine to the top of my card.

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

7. The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp Whatnot Sentiments Set.

I did a sneak peak of one of the new stamps a couple of weeks ago.  Check out that card here.

Easy Peasy!! Now its your turn to play along with us!  Oh wait, I didn’t tell you what the new challenge will be this month!!

Less-Is-More-Header

Their theme is week is CASE A DT CARD!

4. I used my Copic multiliner 0.3 to draw the squally line around my card.

Top Dog Dies Dotted Tags

Hello everyone!!  Happy Wednesday!! Friday is in sight now, yes!  I need a day off!!  LOL!!

Wednesday’s are my Top Dog Dies days!!  I’m here today to share another new die they released last week!

Take a look:

TDD Dotted Tags Die SetTop Dog Dies Dotted Tags Die Set

They are super cute and will fit on any box, card and scrapbook page.  The stitched edges are so pretty!

Take a look at my totally awesome gift box:

Be Mine box

You can give this box to anyone, simply change the sentiment from “Be Mine” to something that would suit your recipient.

I used the heart die from Top Dog Dies Heart Mini Album Finishers Die Set, to create all of those small hearts on my box!!

Take a closer look at my box:

Be Mine box closeup tag

I attached the tag under one of the glitter hearts and it fit perfectly.  No string needed!!

Be Mine box side view

I added the glitter hearts on both sides of the box.  This box is big enough to hold a nice size gift!!

I added a bag fill of chocolate to this box.  I’m giving my box to my daughter.  I have to make another one for my son.

Here is how I created this gift box:

1. I stamped the big and small heart from Waffle Flower Crafts DT Mix Stamp Set on my box using Versamark Ink.

2. I put the box together buy folding on the score lines. I added my chocolate to the box now because when I add the decorations to the box, you can’t open it back.

3. I used my retired Stampin’ Up! Scallop border punch to create the scallop border out of Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

4. I attached the border punched cardstock to the edge of the white cardstock.  Then I adhered the entire piece to the takeout box using Tombow X-treme adhesive.

5. I attached 5 pieces of Stampin’ Up! Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine around my box.

6. I die cut 16 small hearts from Top Dog Dies Heart Mini Album Finishers Die Set and attached them to the bakers twine with glue dots.

7.  I die cut my tag from Top Dog Dies Dotted Tags Die Set and stamped my sentiment from Stampin’ Up! You Plus Me stamp set. I adhered it to my box.

That was super easy to create and the recipient will love it.  Head on over to the Top Dog Dies shop to see what they have to offer. You will not be disappointed.

So what do you think?  Let me know below.
