Second Post for today
If your looking for the YNS Color and Sketch post, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge for the month of July.

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:

Successful woman (TIMI)

I love this So Suzy Stamps sentiment!!  It speaks volumes for women.  Such a confident booster!!

To create this card was simple:

  1. This is an A2 card size, 4.25 by 5.50, scored at 5.50. This card has a card front as well. Cut to the same size as the base of the card.
  2. Run the top of the card front through the Sizzix Big Shot Plus using the Stampin’ Up! Brick Wall Embossing Folder.
  3. Then run the bottom of the card front through the Big Shot again.  Leaving space for the sentiment.
  4. Stamp the sentiment using Versafine Black Ink.
  5. Using Distress Ink Mini Antique Linen blend some of the color over the embossed brick wall with the Mini Ink Blending Tools, for a realistic feel.
  6. Add two of the brown Your Next Stamp Milk and Cookies Matte Gumdrops to finish the card off.

Pretty easy!!

Sooooo, what do you think? Please let me know below.

Check out my card:

Halloween (SSS)

I just love how that background turned out!!  I’m not use to making background but I wanted to give this a try and I’m so glad I did!!

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. I cut out a circle mask and adhered it to the card front so that I could blended Distress Ink Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves together to create the night sky.IMG_5380
  2. Then I used Heidi Swap Star Stencil and Hero Arts Unicorn Ink and added some stars in the sky.
  3. Then I used WPlus9 Shimmer Spray Mist to add shimmer dimension in the sky.
  4. After that I stamped So Suzy Stamps Safest Day Stamp Set using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.
  5. Then I stamped the So Suzy Stamp Halloween Cat using the same Hybrid Ink .
  6. Then I used the Hybrid Ink to add color to my Unique Laser Deisgns Halloween Mini Chipboard and adhered it within my moon.

It might look hard, but it was the easiest card I could have created!!

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

CASology 154 – Repeat

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

This week’s cue card had me doing things over and over again!  This cue card should produce some interesting sorts of cards!!  I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with.

This week’s cue card:

Week 154 - Repeat

Take a look at my card:

Hello Friend (CAS)

I’ve been dying to use this stamp set from Mama Elephant its called Sunday Stroll and Sunday Sentiments!!  I’ve seen all of the beautiful cards with this set and wanted to join in!

Since our cue card is repeat, I decided to repeat the little girl, its triplets!!  So cute!!

Oh man, I should have had them holding hands, that would have been super cute too, LOL.  All after the fact, LOL!!

In any case, I blended Distress Ink Mowed Lawn to the bottom of my card.  Then I stamped my image 3 times using my Misti.  I colored them in with Copic Markers: E15, E02, E00, C1, C3, C5, R24.  I add Clear Wink of Stella to their hats.  I stamped my sentiment using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink. I rounded the top two corners.

Done!!  That was easy!!

Now its your turn!!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

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

Happy Birthday…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today to share a birthday card I created for a customer of mines.

She needed a birthday card for a friend of hers that is turning 40!!

She didn’t give me any direction or colors that she wanted me to use so I had free range!!

Since her friend was turning 40 I wanted the card to be fun and bright but I also wanted it to be elegant.

So I went with my new Penny Black Petals Die!! I love this die, its so pretty!!

Take a look at my card:

Birthday Wishes

Oh how I love these pretty colors in the background.  Distress inks always saves the day!

Here is how I created this card:

1. My card base is cut to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50).

2. I used masking tape to mask off the top portion of my card so that ink doesn’t transfer on to it while I’m blending.

3. I started with Distress Ink Picked Raspberry, then Shaded Lilac, and ended with Spiced Marmalade. Doesn’t it look like there is a hit of green in there.  I love how colors blend with distress inks!!

4. I die cut the Penny Black Petal Die cut and tons of foam pieces to the back so that the panel will not shift of come off.

foam tape

5. I used Your Next Stamp Whynot Sentiment Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment in Versamark Ink on black cardstock.

6. I sprinkled Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on the sentiment and heat set it.

7. I die cut one of the buttons from Papertrey Ink Button Stacks Die out of another blend piece of cardstock.

8. I added Your Next Stamp Black Gumdrop for added interest.

Birthday Wishes 2

So what do you think?  I hope the recipient likes this card as well.
