CS Take It Make It: Stamping Huge Sentiments

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:

Hello Friend (TIMI)

I absolutely love this Mama Elephant Hello Friend Wishes stamp set!! The font is so pretty!!  Its the perfect sentiment that looks amazing all by itself.

I decided to create a shaker card!!  You know how much I love shaker cards.

Here is how I created this card:

  1.  Blend Distress Ink Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves and Salty Ocean on a piece of card stock.
  2. Then stamp the Mama Elephant Hello Friend sentiment with Versamark Ink.
  3. Cover the stamped image with Colorbox White Embossing Powder and heat set.
  4. Cut the frame out of black heavyweight cardstock using Mama Elephant Framed Tags – Park Avenue – Creative Cuts.
  5. Using the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, the We Re Memory Keepers Photo Sleeves and the Mama Elephant die to create the shaker pocket.  For the full tutorial, check out his post.
  6. Before sealing the shaker pocket fill it with Little Things Crystal Sparkly from Lucy’s Cards.
  7. Add some foam strips to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

Super pretty!!

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

Guest Designer: Sparkle and Shine Challenge Part 2

Hello everyone!! I’m back again today with the Sparkle and Shine Challenge as the Guest Designer for the month.

Here is the photo inspiration that I used to create my card:

Sparkle and Shine

Take a look at my card:

Happiest of Holiday (S&S)

I have to say I struggle with this photo inspiration this time around.  At first I played with all of the colors in the photo and my daughter said no.  The colors were to dull.  So I decided to go with just two of the colors.

I stamped My Favorite Things Santa’s Elves tree and fussy cut them out.  Then I adhered them to my card front.  After that I added some sequin as ornaments on the tree.  Then I stamped the sentiment and I was done!!

Super easy!

So what do you think?  Please let me know.

This challenge runs for two weeks. You have until December 28, 2015 at 11:55pm to enter for a chance to win a super awesome prize!!

Supplies used:

BB Santa's Elves MFT Hybrid Black Ink

Hello everyone!! I’m here today with the Sparkle and Shine Challenge as the Guest Designer for the month.  I’m super excited to participate in this challenge this month.  The ladies on this team are totally awesome designers.

Here is the photo inspiration that I used to create my card:

sparkle and shine. jpg

When I saw this photo, I was torn on what to create!  I saw the purple first, its my favorite color, then I spotted the snowflakes on the wall and thought how can I recreate that look and here you go.

Take a look at my card:

Joy (S&S)

I totally love how this card turned out!!  Purple is such an amazing color!  It’s vibrant and deep!!

I wanted to include the snowflakes, the colors purple and black!

Here is how I created my card:

  1. I used Distress Ink Dusty Concord and add the ink to my paper. Only on one side of the card base since the snowflakes were in the corner.
  2. Then I used Create a Smile Snowflake stencil and Wendy Vecchi Embossing paste to add some snowflakes over the purple ink blending.
  3. Then I used Lawn Fawn Joy Die to die cut 3 words out of fun foam.
  4. I adhered the sentiment to the card base using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
  5. Then I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequin from the Create a Smile Snow Dancing kit.

So what do you think?  Please let me know.

This challenge runs for two weeks. You have until December 14, 2015 at 11:55pm to enter for a chance to win a super awesome prize!!
