Our Next Stamp March 2016 Blog Hop

Mar2016-hopbadge-547x329

Hello everyone!!  Yayyy, I love this blog hop featuring new products from Your Next Stamps makes squeal!! LOL!!

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

If you’ve been hopping along, you would have arrived from Stephanie’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 Anita‘s blog.

My favorite set from this release is the Cool Easter Chick stamp set! I showcased that card yesterday during the sneak peek.  If you didn’t see it here it is.

Are you ready for my big reveal?

Take a look at my card:

Happy Birthday to you (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Little Darling Fairy Godmother, Spellbound Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Clarity Stencil Strips, Distress Inks Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Scattered Straw, Old Paper, and Twisted Citron, Recollection Black Cardstock, Recollection White Cardstock, Tombow Extreme Adhesive

This card was super easy to create!  I blended the colors using the stencil then stamped the sentiment three times.  I added the gumdrops for an added finish.  Sometimes we just need really simple cards.

Happy Easter (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Cool Easter Chick, Black Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper, Versafine Onyx Ink, Stampin’ Up! Clear Embossing Powder, Prima Confection Watercolor

Here is another simple card but with a little bit more flare.  I did a little watercoloring and then stamped the sentiment right on top of the dried watercoloring. I added some clear embossing powder on top of the stamped sentiment before it dried to give it an extra pop after it was heated set. I added some gumdrops.

Boom!! Done!!

I have a confession:  This Happy Easter card was suppose to be my sneak peek card but I posted my Spring card by mistake.  That was my favorite card, I guess I was super excited about it.  Sorry for the confusion. 

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!

CASology 186 – Distress

Third Post for today

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

This week’s cue card is:

Week 186 - Distress

I was wondering what do I do with this cue card.  When I think of distress, I think of ink and blending.  How can I make a CAS card with different inks blending together? Nothing was coming to me that would be simple and WOW at the same time.

Then I remember I received a Tombow Mono Correction Tape and saw a super fun technique using this non-crafty tool.

Check out my card:

Distress banner (CAS)

Do you see my distress banner?  LOL!!  I created that with correction tape!!

Here’s how:

Stamping images (CAS)

I used the Mini Misti to stamp the flower image from Lawn Fawn Happy Easter Stamp Set.

adding correction tape (CAS)

Then I used the Tombow Mono Correction Tape Retro to create a distress box that my sentiment will go.

Once the correction tape was down, I used my finger to pick up some of the tape on the edges, so that it looks distress.

I used the Mini Misti and My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink to stamp the sentiment on the correction tape.

After that I, I used a Copic Mulitliner to draw a line around the distressed box.

Finished (CAS)

To finish the card off, I used Tombow Irojiten Colored Pencils Dictionary, Rainforest Pale Tones to color my tulips.

Very non-conventional, but I love it!! I hope you give this method a try!!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Happy Easter…..

Today’s card was made for the Less is More Blog Challenge Week 169 Sketch.  I know, I know Easter was a couple of weeks ago but I didn’t get a chance to create a card for it so I took this opportunity to create one.

It is a very clean and simple card that I really love.  I used a couple of great products to pull of my CAS card.  Stampin’ Up! is retiring the Polka Dot Parade DSP  and the Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  That was a big shock to me because that paper is so popular.  It will go fast so if you want that paper and the rhinestone  just click here to purchase it.  I also used Papertrey Ink’s Button Stacks Die.  I love this die, the buttons are so cute.

Take a look:

Happy Easter

I used my circle dies to cut perfect circles and laid the DSP behind it.  I colored my bunny with my C3 Cool Grey Copic maker.

It’s funny because I wasn’t sure if I should color the bunny, so I asked my son because my daughter was sleeping, and he honestly gave me his opinion.  For those that know my son, he could care less what I do!!  So thanks E, for the help.

Soooo, what do you think?

Please leave me a comment letting me know what you think of my CAS card!
