Autumn Greeting

Creating this card was simple.

Here’s how:

  1. I embossed the front of my card base using the retired Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot Embossing Folder.
  2. Then I used Hero Arts Paper Layering Pumpkin Die to cut out my pumpkin.
  3. Then I adhered the pumpkin to the front of my cad using glue.
  4. After that stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Color Layering Fall Trees stamp set using Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heat set it.
  5. I trimmed the sentiment down, flagged it and adhered it to my card front.

Now tell me that pumpkin isn’t awesome!!  I love it! I love how it opens.

Waffle Flower Challenge – Photo Inspiration

Hello everyone!!  Happy New Year to all of you (just in case this is your first time visiting me).

I’m so excited today!!!  This is my first post as a Waffle Flower Crafts Design Team Member!!!

So I have to admit something to all of you.  I planned this post two weeks ago because for the new year I want my post to be scheduled and ready to go out. So I did everything I needed to do.  I hit schedule and I thought I was set.  Until I went back to preview it and I realized I couldn’t find it.  I started to panic.  I couldn’t find the post.  Something told me to have my brother check his email and there it was.  I thought I was going to cry.  I sent the post out, but it wasn’t in my feed.  That’s because I didn’t change the year from 2014 to 2015 so it was under my archive but everyone who gets emails from me received the post, even the Twitter world.

I was so scared that I messed things up. I pulled the post and changed the date and I deleted it from Twitter.  I emailed Tessa and she assured me that everything will be ok.  So those of you who get emails from this blog, received a sneak peak already.

So with that said:

I’m working really hard to make this year one of the best years ever.  Thanks for coming on this journey with me.

So without farther ado, lets get started.

Our first challenge for the year is Photo Inspiration Challenge.  Take a look at the colors below.

WF Challenge Jan 12Aren’t these colors pretty together.  It give off a very warm feeling.  It makes me want an cup of hot chocolate to drink while I create.

So now that you’ve had a chance to see the colors for yourself and how they look in a room, take a look at my card:

Hi, Thank you

What do you think?  I really love how my card turned out.  I have to admit,  I’ve never made a card using a photo for inspiration before.

I looked at this picture for a couple of days before I sat to create.  I thought long and hard about what I wanted to create.  Once I figured out what stamp set and die I wanted to use, I shopped my paper stash for the colors.

I was worried because I didn’t remember seeing all of these colors in my stash.  Once I found them, I knew I was ready to create.

So here is how I did it:

1. I created my A2 size (5.50 x 4.25) card base using Stampin’ Up! Rose Red cardstock.

2. I embossed the front of the card base using Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot embossing folder.

3. I cut a small piece of Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy and Dark Chocolate cardstock then embossed it with Stampin’ Up! Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

4.  I attached the two pieces, one on top of the other, with tape.  Then I used Waffle Flower Crafts Flower Circles Die Set and cut a stitch circle out of the Stampin’ Up! Lost Lagoon cardstock.

5. I stamped the “thank you” sentiment from Waffle Flowers Crafts 100% Love Stamp Set with Stampin’ Up! Rose Red Ink.

6. I attached the stitched circle die cut to the stamped thank you sentiment piece.

7. I stamped the “hi” sentiment from Waffle Flower Craft 100% Love Stamp Set with Stampin’ Up! Lost Lagoon Ink.

8. I attached the hi sentiment to the front of the circle with foam adhesive.

9. I attached some Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6mm sparkling clear sequin randomly on my card front.

Wala!!  My card is complete.  Easy as 1-2-3!

So what do you think?  Did I meet the photos expectations?  Let me know.  I would love to hear from you!!

I hope my card gives you some inspiration to participate in the Photo Challenge. It runs for two weeks, starting today, January 12th and ending January 25th.

CAS Merry Christmas…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the DoubleClick Skittles 8th Challenge.  The theme is Polka Dot or Circles!!  How fun is that?

I decided to create a nice clean and simple card for this challenge.  When I thought about circles I wanted to have more then one.

Take a look:

Merry Christmas

How many circles have you counted on this card.  Amazing right!!  There are 3 circles in this card. Plus the polka dot background!!!

The big circle, the smaller circle and the Ginch Green Skittles are on this card.

To create this card:

1. My card base is 4.25 x 5.50 scored at 5.50.  My Lawn Fawn Snow Day patten paper which is from the Simon Says Stamp 2014 November Card Kit  was cut to 4.25 x 5.50 and adhered to the inside of the card.

2. I cut the circles out with Stampin’ Up! Circles Framelits.  I used the third and fifth dies.  I cut out the card stock and the acetate.

3. I cut out two of the smaller circles and I also cut out the edged of the bigger circle to cover up the adhesive on acetate in the back.

4. I adhered the acetate down with Tombow Multi-Liquid glue.

5. I adhered the smaller circles down with Stampin’ Up! Fuse Fast adhesive.

6. I cut a 3/4 inch banner, rounded the corner, flagged the end and stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Be Joyful stamp set which is included in there 2014 November Card Kit.

7. I add one Ginch Green Skittles to keep my card nice, clean and simple.  That green skittle gives the card a really nice pop of color on the front of the card.

So what do you think?  Now its your turn!  Please head on over to DoubleClick Connections to play along with us.

Dates: October 29th, 2014 – November 11, 2014

Spooky….Boooo!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the DoubleClick Spooky Fun Challenge!!  I had a lot of fun with this challenge.  I’m not a Halloween person but I get into the spirit for my children… no one loves a grouch.

So for this challenge, I turned to my 8 year old daughter, Little Lady Sanaa!!  She helped me put this card together.  She saw a  design on Pinterest and loved it.

This challenge asked us to use at least 2 colors: orange, black, purple or green!

She said mom let’s use all of the colors!  I said no problem.

Take a look at our card:

Booo

Isn’t this cute!!  My daughter and I make a great team, I have to say.  My daughter loves the Wink of Stella pen, so I’m so surprised that she didn’t want to put glitter on this card.  I guess when she saw the googly eyes, she forgot all about the glitter, LOL!!

So here is how we made this card:

1. The base card was cut to 4.25 x 5.50 out of Stampin’ Up! Old Olive card stock.

2. We used Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot Embossing Folder to emboss only one quarter of the cardstock.

3. We then cut a 2.75 piece of Stampin’ Up! Sweet Taffy DSP and added it to the left of the polka dots.

4. Then we add a scrap piece of Stampin’ Up! Basic Black card stock between the DSP and the polka dots.

5. We used a piece of orange bakers twine I received as a part of some happy mail packaging to tie a bow at the top of the card.

6. They we cut out two circles.  The larger one from Stampin’ Up! Circles Framelits Die out of Stampin’ Up! Basic Black CS and the smaller one from Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banner Die out of Stampin’ Up! Rich Razzleberry CS.

7.  We used the smaller splats stamp from Stampin’ Up Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set and stamped the Rich Razzleberry stitched circle.

8.  We stamped the mummy from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Googly Ghouls.

9. I fussy cut the mummy out and pop him up on the circle die using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

10. We stamped the sentiment and cut it out using Stampin’ Up! Bitty Banners Die.

11. My daughter added the googly eyes to the mummy and the eyes in the sentiment.

12. We then added our Pumpkin Skittles for added embellishments.

Now our card is finished!!  We had a great time creating this card.

So what do you think?  Let us know. My daughter would love to hear from you.

We are entering this card into the Lawnscaping Challenge as well!!
