Using Pattern Paper to Create a CAS Card

Hello everyone!! I’m here today using pattern paper to create a CAS card. Gossamer Blue is a monthly crafts club dedicated to inspiring and motivation memory keepers and crafters alike.

Each month they come out with 3 different types of kits:

  1. Scrapbook Kit
  2. Life Pages Kit
  3. Planner Kit

Each kit is full of amazing goodies!

Here are some peeks at some of the kits:

Planner Kit Goodies

Life Pages Kit Goodies

 I used the Planner Pages Kit paper to create my card, take a look:

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. Cut the card base to 4.25 by 11, scored at 5.50.
  2. Cut the pattern paper to 4.25 by 5.50.
  3. Adhered the pattern paper to the card front using Tombow Mono Adhesive + Permanent.
  4. Using Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart Envelope Die cut the small note card out of Bristol cardstock.
  5. Use the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment from The Stamp Market You Are My Fave stamp set on the die cut notecard using Versafine Onyx Ink.
  6. Add 3M foam adhesive to the note card and adhere it to the center of the card front.

Nice, easy and a great way to use up pattern paper.

What do you think? Please let me know below. I would love to hear from you.

Ombre Stamping – Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge

Third Post for today
If your looking for YNS Color and Sketch Challenge, click here
If your looking for CS Take It Make It Challenge, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m super excited to be here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!!  This is our very first challenge and we couldn’t be more happier to share our love for Concord and 9th!!

Exciting right!!  I think so!!

So without further-a-do, take a look at our challenge theme:

Take a look at my card:

love-in-my-heart

Are you wondering how my card ties in with the theme for this month.  I am an out of the box crafter.  I try not to go with the obvious. I’m celebrating LOVE!! Oh to love is a celebration, especially when you feel it in your heart!!

We celebrate the love of our children, the love of our parents, the love of our sibling and the love of our life!!  So I created a card that mirrors that celebratory feeling.

Here’s how:

  • Cut your cardbase to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50, scored at 5.50).
  • Using Concord and 9th Give Thanks stamp set, stamp the heart using Clearsnap Colorbox Doodlebug Pigment Petal Point Ink.
  • Stamp the heart three times, starting at the bottom with the lightest color, moving up to the darker color.
  • Using the Mini Misti, stamp the second line of the sentiment first with Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Wick Ink. Re-ink if needed.
  • Then stamp the love sentiment but inking it up with the same three colors, slightly overlapping each color.
  • Once the pigment ink dries, use a paint brush and some black ink to add ink splatters over the entire card.

Nice and simple!!

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

SS 2.1

Now take a look at my take of this photo:

Be Mine Milk Cartoon

Here is how I created these mini milk cartoons for my daughter’s class:

  1. I used retired Stampin’ Up! Bigz L Mini Milk Carton to cut out 3 milk cartons.
  2. Then I put the cartons together with Tombow Extreme Adhesive.
  3. After that I added some random Love Washi Tape around the boxes.
  4. Then I added some crystal hearts from Michael’s for my bling onto all of the boxes.
  5. I used My Favorite Things Pierced Heat STAX to cut out three small hearts.
  6. I stamped Right At Home Kiss Kiss sentiment onto the hearts.
  7. I adhered the hearts with some Micheal’s clothes pins.

They are filled with candy for her classmates.  I hope they love these too.

That fun!!

CASology 182 – Adore

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

This week’s cue card is:

Week 182 - Adore

Take a look at my card:

PicTapGo-Image

When I saw the cue card and who the sponsor was, I knew I had the perfect stamp set for this challenge!!

To create this card, I stamped the sentiment and two hearts from Concord & 9th Love You. Mean It., using Versafine Black ink.  Then I cut the front card panel down by 1.5 inches.  I then added a stripe of pattern paper behind that front panel.  I added some glossy accents to the two hearts for an added pop! Nice and easy!!

I created another card but thought it was way to simple.  I like this one!! I used the circle stamp this time!
