thanks-from-the-bottom-cas

For this week’s cue card I used Winnie and Walters From the Bottom of My Heart stamp set that I received as a gift for placing an order with them.  Super cute stamp set.

To create this card:

I stamped the heart using Colorbox Pinkolicious Archival Dye Ink in the center of the card base. Nothing to it!!

White space + No embellishments + Easy to replicate = CAS!

What do you think?

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop

national-craft-month-banner

Happy National Craft Month!!  Isn’t this amazing that we have a whole month dedicated to what we love to do, which is creating beautiful things!!

I’ve been super busy this month crafting like crazy.  I’ve never been so busy in all of my years of crafting.  I have to admit, I love it!!  I’m highly stressed but my best work comes to me in times like this.

Right at Home has decided that we would celebrate this amazing month with an amazing blog hop!!

The design team was challenged to create a project using our favorite products and share that with all of you!!

I thought this was a fabulous idea.  The only thing is, how do I pick what my favorite product out of all of the goodies I own.  LOL!!

Take a look at my card and see if you can guess what my favorite things are:

Blessed (RAH)

Can you see what I see?  Oh baby, I’m in love!!

Lets take a closer look:

Blessed close up (RAH)

Can you see all of that foiled goodness now?  OMG, I love it!!  So now you know one of my favorite products, Thermoweb Deco Foil, any color. The other is Right At Home Scripted Greetings Stamp Set.  My signature style is Clean and Simple.

This card looks amazing in person.  You can move it back an forth and see all of the different colors.

I’m also a lover of sequin .  I didn’t add them to this card because it would over do it and take away from the beautiful foil.

So you want to know how I create this card:

I cut Heidi Swapp Minc Signature Paper to 4.5 by 5.50.

Then I cut Themoweb Deco Foil Rainbow to fit on the front of the water card panel.

I ran it thought my laminator to transfer the foil on to the paper.  Since the stars contain toner, the foil stuck to the stars.

After that I  stamped the sentiment using the Mini Misti and Versafine Black Onyx ink.  I stamped twice so that the sentiment would stand out from the stars.

I sprinkled Stampin’ Up! Clear Embossing powder over the sentiment, since the ink takes a while to dry, adding the embossing powder will give the sentiment an extra kick.

That’s my card!!  What do you think?  What is your favorite product? Please let me know below. 

Now for the hop!!  You have to hop along leaving a comment on each of the blogs participating in order to win a prize.   More details on the prize, had back to Right At Home Blog.

Next up is fabulous Yuki!! Her projects are always amazing.  I can’t wait to see what she created!!

Once again, Happy National Craft Month!!

Right At Home March Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone!!  I’m excited to be here with you today to sharing an amazing project created for the Right At Home March Release Blog Hop!!  This is the design team third blog hop and we are delight to full you with inspiration.

march-release-cover-photo

The new Abstract Florals and Script Greeting stamp sets are so much fun to play with.  I have to admit the Abstract Floral stamp set is totally out of my comfort zone.  I can’t figure out which inks to use to build the flowers.  Play with this set, has helped me a lot.

Take a look at my cards:

Hello (RAH)

I love how my flowers turned out. I shied away from building my flowers this go round but you will see that later this month.

Here’s how I created these cards:

  1. Both cards are an A2 size cards, 4.25 by 5.50 scored at 5.50.
  2. I used the Mini Misti to stamp the flowers, stem and sentiment all at one time using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.  It saved me time on the second card as well, since everything was in the right place.
  3. After the flowers were stamped, I used Tombow Recycled Color Pencils to color them in.
  4. Once the flowers were all colored, I took Tombow Mono Sand Eraser and give the tip of the flowers some highlights.
  5. I added some YNS Give Thanks for Sparkle and Candy Land Glittered Gumdrops and round the top corners to finish the cards off.

I’m going to make a couple more of these cards so that I can include them in the happymail packages that I send to my giveaway winners.

Your next stop on this awesome hop is Yuki’s blog! She is amazing!!

What’s a hop without a giveaway!! One lucky person who hops along and leaves a comment on each blog will win the Scripty Greeting stamp set.

So what do you think? Let me know below.

This week’s cue card is:

Week 161 - Plaid

Take a look at my card:

Thanks Plaid (CAS)

Now that plaid section on my card came from this panel I create weeks ago in the Background Check Online Card Class.

I never go to use the piece so I thought it was fitting now.

So I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle die to cut a circle piece and adhered it to my card panel.

Super doper easy!!

I decided to go traditional with my card.  I used Lawn Fawn Sweet Smiles stamp set and Sweet Smiles Cuts to create my card!  The bubblegum goes “POP” when you blow a bubble!!  I love it!

I’m participating in Kathy’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge! I colored this gum-ball machine and loved how it turned out.

I used my Copic Markers: R89, R24, R27, R29, G07, G16, YR15, Y02, B37, Rv21, Rv13 to color my focal point.

I stamped some of my gum-drops with one of the many faces in the set.  So cute.

I used my Clear Wink of Stella and added shimmer to the base and top of the gum-ball machine.

I used retired Stampin’ Up! Polka dots embossing folder and embossed my card base.

I die cut my image and added it to my card base using some foam adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set with My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

I rounded the bottom corners and I was done!

I love this wavy graduation card.  Graduations are suppose to be fun and exciting.

My son is graduating high school next year and I can’t wait.  We are going to have so much fun.  I can’t believe he is heading to college already.  I had him while I was in college so this has come full circle for me.  I’m so excited.

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cute my card base to an A2 size card 5.50 by 4.25 scored at 5.5o.

2. I used My Favorite Things Die-namics Ride the Wave Die to cut the four waves out of Stampin’ Up! in colors cardstock.

3. I attached the two bottom waves first then I stamped my sentiment from My Favorite Things Wavy Greeting Stamp Set using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

4. Then I adhered the next two waves.
