Hello Crafty Friends and welcome back! How’s your STAMPtember going so far? What are your favorites from the new release? Yeah, I’m nosey! There are so many cool things that it’s hard for me to narrow down my favorites! Anyhoo, today’s project is featuring the new Black Eyed Susans stamp set, so let’s run through the details!
Once all of the coloring was complete, I used a Copic Multi Liner 0.5 to add some additional black dot detail to the centers of the flowers. Next, I stamped a bee from the set twice in the same way and colored those using one of the yellow markers along with the Copic 110 Special Black marker. For a bit more added detail, I went over the wings using a Wink of Stella marker as well before fussy cutting them.
I adhered the bees to the panel as well using SSS Foam Squares, before adhering everything to the card base. No card is complete without some bling, so I added some PFS Iridescent Clear Drops to finish up this one.
That does it for this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to swing by and check out the entire STAMPtember release! Have yourself a wonderful day and stay awesome!
Hello Friends, and thanks for stopping by! I’m still playing with goodies from Simon’s latest release, Dream Big. What are your favorites from this one? Today’s project is featuring the new Terrace Floral Embossing Folder and Die Cut. This is a really beautiful folder with so many possibilities! Let’s go through the details.
I began by trimming a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, spritzing it with some water and running it through the die cutting machine inside the folder.
The sentiment was then adhered to the embossed panel using SSS 3D Foam Squares and then adhered to the card base. I added some PFS Gold Metallic Pearls for that little bit of bling, because all cards need a little bling, am I right?!
That does it for this one! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to stop by and check out the entire Dream Big release and let me know your favorites! Have an awesome day and stay awesome!
Hello Friends! Thanks for joining me today as we celebrate Spellbinder’s 20th birthday! In honor of this major event, we are featuring products from the new Birthday Celebrations Collection! There are so many wonderful products in this collection, and today, I’m featuring three of those products on one card! Let’s go through the details, shall we?
This is such a gorgeous paper, that I thought it would be fun to add some flowers and leaves in some springy colors! So, I used the Mini Blooms and Sprigs set and cut a bunch of flowers in various colored cardstocks, and cut a few leaves from the same Mirror Gold cardstock.
To assemble the card, I adhered the sentiments in the center, and adhered the flowers and leaves using a combination of liquid glue and foam tape, before adhering to the card base.
That does it for this one! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to stop by and check out the entire Birthday Celebrations Collection! Thanks again for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
Hello Friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by! I made today’s card a bit ago, but just haven’t gotten around to writing or posting it. To be honest, I’ve been kind of lazy and lacking in motivation. It happens to all of us .. I think! Anyhoo, this card is featuring the PFS Rainbow Floral Washi, and I just have to say that I’m in love with it! Let’s go through the deets!
The background texture of the card panel was made using the PFS Diagonal Stitched Plaid. I love using these types of plates on white, because it just adds the slightest bit of detail and interest without distracting from the focal point of the card.
I used the PFS Stitched Scallop Circle dies to cut two of those. One of the smaller and one of the larger circles. I glued the circles together and adhered them to the panel using foam tape. I then arranged some of the rainbow pieces around the circles using a combination of liquid glue and foam tape for support.
It needed some extra leaves, of course, so I cut a few using the PFS Leafy Branch die and tucked those under the edges securing with glue. I had previously made the sentiment using the PFS Perfect Sentiments Hot Foil Plate, along with Spellbinders Champagne foil. This sentiment is stacked three high for additional support. I glued the sentiment in the center of the smaller circle and added a few PFS Gold Metallic Pearls for good measure. Everything was then, of course, adhered to the card base.
These washi tapes make it so easy to create beautiful cards with minimal effort! If you haven’t tried them, I highly encourage you to do so. Thanks again for stopping by. Don’t forget to stay your awesome, wonderful self!
Hello Crafty Lovelies and thanks for stopping by! Erin Lee Creative had an awesome release this past Friday with gorgeous floral plates and sentiments, and I’m super grateful and honored that Erin asked me to play with a few of the new products! I’m a little late to the party because I was away visiting my mom, but I got right to playing when I returned home. Today’s card is featuring the gorgeous Sketched Floral Foil Cover Plate along with the Script Sentiments 2 Foil Die Combo, so let’s run through the details for this one!
The Script Sentiments 2 set is gorgeous and this font is so unique! I foiled a few of the sentiments on black cardstock using the same Champagne foil and trimmed them out using the included coordinating dies. I opted to go with the happy birthday sentiment, because you can never have enough birthday cards in my opinion. I went ahead and trimmed that sentiment two more times from black and adhered all of those together using liquid glue.
That finishes up this beauty! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Stop by and check out this gorgeous releases over on Erin’s website! Thanks again to Erin for letting me play with these beautiful products! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Friends! How are you today? I hope you’re feeling great and having a wonderful day! I’m back today with a card that I made a bit ago, but just never got around to blogging or posting it! It’s using the SSS Oh Expletive die. Can I just say that I absolutely love this die?! I just think that it’s so funny and playful! Anyhoo, let’s run through the details, shall we?
That finishes up this one! I hope you enjoyed it! I always love the look of mixed media cards, but don’t feel that I’m very good at it, so I usually never venture in that direction. It’s fun though! Thanks again for stopping by, and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Friends and thanks for stopping by! I’m playing with goodies from Simon Says Stamp’s latest release, Hello Gorgeous, and today I’m featuring the new Folk Art Flowers background stamp! What are your favorites from this release? I’d love to know in the comments! Let’s run through the details of this card.
To assemble the card, I adhered the frame and vellum leaves using liquid glue, and then positioned the sentiment in the center and glued that as well. That panel was then adhered to the card base using foam tape for dimension, and I added some PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls to finish it up!
That does it for today’s project! I hope you’re loving the new Simon release, Hello Gorgeous, because I sure am! Thanks again for stopping by and don’t forget to stay awesome!
The card needed something behind the sentiment in my opinion, so I opted for some leaves from the SSS Etched Meadow Flowers and Leaves. I cut those from some Neenah 110lb, as well as, some black cardstock and tucked those underneath the sentiment. The sentiment was adhered to the panel with foam tape for some added dimension.
Hello Crafty Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by for today’s project featuring the Radiating Squares Stencil set from Simon Says Stamp’s newest release, Good Luck Charm! Have you checked out the release yet? I love sentiment sets, so I was thrilled to see a few of those in this release! Let’s get to the details!
I began this project by adhering the first stencil to a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using masking tape. There are a total of four stencils in this set, so I pulled out four inks for the ink blending. I ended up using Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry and Kitsch Flamingo, as well as, PinkFresh Studio inks in Candy Violet and Lavender. For the ink blending, I used a heavier hand at the top and a lighter hand near the bottom creating that ombre look. I used a different ink for each stencil layer and just made my way through the stencils.
I wanted to add a sub-sentiment, so I found a SSS Sentiment Strip that I thought would work. I adhered the main sentiment to the panel using glue and adhered the sub-sentiments using foam tape for dimension.
That wraps up this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to check out the entire Good Luck Charm release, there’s so many fun things! Have a wonderful day and stay awesome!
Hello Crafty Friends and welcome to another Simon Says Stamp release! Good Luck Charm is live and ready for your viewing pleasure! My project today is featuring the new Basic Box Card Happy Birthday. Let’s run through the details, shall we?
I’ve really enjoyed making backgrounds with sentiments lately, so I decided to hop on that bandwagon again for this one! It’s such a great way to stretch those sentiment dies, or even just stand alone dies! Anyhoo, I began this project by ink blending a large panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using SSS Pawsitively Saturated Inks in Sweets, Blush, Sunshine and Surf. Once that was done, I die cut enough sentiments to cover an A2 card panel. I also cut them a second time for stacking purposes, and adhered them together using liquid glue.
Because the background was so colorful, I decided to downplay the floral elements by cutting the SSS Etched Crocus Stems from Neenah 110lb cardstock and leaving those white. I adhered the background panel to a black panel using SSS Dot Tape Runner and I adhered the flowers using glue. I found a coordinating SSS Sentiment Strip and adhered that over the stems using foam tape for dimension.
Everything was then adhered to the card base, and I added some PFS Jewels to finish it up with some bling.
I hope you enjoyed this project! Take a look at your dies and see what kind of background that you can make, and stretch those supplies! Stop by and check out the entire Good Luck Charm release and let me know your favorites! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
