Concord & 9th 2nd Birthday Celebration

Hello everyone!! Today I’m so excited to be here celebrating Concord & 9th 2nd Birthday!! Yes, they turn 2 today!!

Time flies when your having fun is such a true statement.  I remember when they first started out and to see them grow in such a way feels good as a customer.

I’m so happy that I get to celebrate with them!

Take a look at the card I created:

Concord & 9th Seriously I Thank You

Concord and 9th, Seriously Thank You for trusting me to showcase your products within my creations!! I truly appreciate it.

This stamp set is totally amazing.  The sentiment is so meaningful and powerful.  It lets the receiver know that you really thank them.

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. Use distress inks to create the watercolor background on watercolor paper.
  2. Then heat set it so that the watercolor dries completely.
  3. After that, prep the watercolor panel using an anti-static tool.
  4. Stamp the sentiment using Versamark ink.
  5. Pour silver embossing powder of the stamped sentiment.
  6. Brush off the excess and heat set the powder.
  7. Die cut the panel using Neat and Tangle Scalloped Die.
  8. Cut and score the card base to 4.25 x 5.50 scored at 5.5o.
  9. Use a star embossing folder and emboss the card front with stars.
  10. Adhere the watercolor panel to the front of the card base using 3M foam tape.
  11. Add some clear gumdrops to finish the card off.

Nothing to it!!

{Clean and Simple} CASology 203 – Congratulations

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

This week’s cue card:

Week 203 - Congratulations

Take a look at my card:

Congratulation ink splatters

I plan on having fun with this cue card this week.  My son’s big day is this Saturday and he has inspired me!  He is such a great son.  He has stayed focused to the very end.  Good grades and dominate in all the sports he played.  He walks away from high school as an All County Football Player, an All County Lacrosse Player and an All Conference Basketball Player.

INSPIRING right!!

This card is for him!

I used STAMPlorations Art Marks Stamp Set, who happens to be our sponsor  this week, to create this card.

Here’s how:

  1. I stamp the different ink splatters and the stars with Versafine ink.
  2. Then I stamped the sentiment using So Suzy Stamp Plum Passion Ink Bite.
  3. To finish the card off I rounded the top corners using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch board.

Nice and easy!

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

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!!

Go and Celebrate (TDD)

The Balloon Die Set comes with 6 balloon dies ranging from small to big!!

I used the largest die to create this card.  Super easy to use and check out that stitching!!  It gives the balloon such a nice finished look.

To create these cards, I just die cut the balloon adhered them to the top left portion of the card.  I used Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Bakers Twine.  I used Mama Elephant Make A Wish Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment using Lawn Fawn Deep Sea Ink.  I added Clear Wink of Stella to the sentiment and the stars.

Lets Party Celebrate (TDD)

 

I used some glitter paper to create these balloons.  I love how they turned out.

To create these cards, I just die cut the balloon adhered them to the top left portion of the card.  I used my Copic Multiliner to draw the strings.  I used Simon Says Stamp Birthday Big Wishes Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

Now you see those two stars in between my sentiment?  Well, I had to add those because some of the black ink caught my paper on the pink balloon while I was stamping it.  I think I saved it pretty well. I used Lucy Adams Star Shine Sparkly Sequin to save the day.
