Simon Says Stamp Imperia Rose Bud Bundle

Hello and thanks for joining me! Welcome to for another DIEcember project! Die cuts are absolutely my jam, and I love making cards with them! Today’s project is featuring the new Sketched Rose Bud Bundle. This set includes a foiling plate along with a die cut! Let’s jump right into the details, shall we?

I began this project by foiling the SSS Rose Bud Bundle three times using Spellbinders Champagne Foil on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. I pulled out some Copic markers for the coloring using, RV91, RV93, RV95, G82 and YG61. That set of RV markers is really a gorgeous combination!

Once the coloring was complete, I used the included die cut to run that through the machine. For the background, I used the new, absolutely gorgeous SSS Imperia Plate. So much texture and detail with so little effort! That’s the amazing thing about background plates, in my opinion!

For the sentiment, I used the SSS Silhouette Sentiments. I stamped the sentiment on Neenah 110lb using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. The coordinating die was then used to trim it out. I also trimmed it three additional times and adhered all of those together, making it four layers thick.

After playing with the arrangement of the flowers on the background panel, I decided that it needed some additional white leaves, so I opted for the SSS Outline Clustered Leaves. This added just the slightest bit of interest that I was looking for. I adhered the flowers and leaves to the corners of the panel using a combination of foam tape and liquid glue. The sentiment was also glued directly to the panel along with some pearls. The panel was then adhered to the card base using foam tape.

And there you have it! I hope you enjoyed this project! I love foiling and die cutting, so this was a match made in heaven for me! Don’t forget to stop by and check out the entire DIEcember release! There’s so many amazing things to feast your eyes upon! Have a wonderful day and stay awesome!

LDRS Grateful Heart

Hello Crafty Friends and thanks for joining me! Today’s project is featuring a couple of new products from the latest LDRS October Collection, the Modern Trellis Coverplate and the Thankful Flowers Slimline set. Let’s get right into the details!

To begin this project, I stamped the florals from the LDRS Corner Garden set on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat set that using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I then colored the images using Copic markers. Unfortunately, I did not write down the specific colors used, which is unlike me, but sometimes things happen. So I apologize about that.

Once everything was colored, I used the LDRS Corner Garden Die set to trim those images out. While I was die cutting, I went ahead and die cut the LDRS Modern Trellis Coverplate from Neenah 110lb, and did some light ink blending, using LDRS Dan-D-Lion ink, on the corners where I intended to put the florals.

I decided on this sentiment from the new LDRS Thankful Flowers Slimline set because I loved it so much. I love die cut sentiments, so I’m thrilled to see some coordinating dies for the sentiments in the sets! Anyhoo, I stamped the sentiment with the same VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat set it using the same embossing powder. Once that was done, I used the coordinating die to trim it out.

To assemble the card, I adhered the trellis to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb, using liquid glue, and adhered the florals to the ink blended corners using foam tape. I nestled the sentiment between those and adhered that with foam tape as well. To finish up, I added a few PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls for some added bling!

That does it for this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty as well! Stop by and check out all of the new October Collection goodies over at LDRS! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!

LDRS Hello Lovely

Hello Friend! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are doing well and having a wonderful day! I’m back today with an LDRS card featuring the Garden’s Edge Slimline Stamp and die. Wow, this is such a beautiful stamp, and I was super excited to play with it. So, let’s jump right in!

I began by stamping the LDRS Garden’s Edge Slimline stamp on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat setting it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I then began coloring using Copic markers BG10, BG11, BG72, G21, G24, Y08, Y11, Y15, Y17, Y32, YR27, E99, RV00, RV10, RV11, RV17 and RV55.

Once the coloring was completed, I used the LDRS Garden’s Edge Slimline Die to trim it out, and I pulled out a piece of watercolor paper for the background. I used Distress Oxide Sprays Broken China and Prize Ribbon, and spritzed them onto my glass work surface, spritzed some water, and then did some ink smooshing to obtain the soft wash of color.

Once the watercolor panel was dry, I popped it into the Misti and stamped the Hello Lovely sentiment, which is also from the same stamp set, using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat setting it using the same embossing powder.

Since I was not using this slimline stamped image on a slimline card, I had to choose the placement of the florals. Once decided, I placed foam tape on the back and adhered it to the watercolor panel, trimming off the excess. The excess was then added to another section of the card. We can’t let any of it go to waste, right?! This was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb, using foam tape. I also added a few confetti sequins because we have to have bling!

That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you found some inspiration! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome friend!

Alex Syberia Design Lotus Hugs

Hello Lovelies! I hope you’re doing well and having a wonderful day! It’s release day for Alex Syberia Design, and she’s got some beauties this month! I hope you’ll stop by her Etsy shop and take a peek at the whole collection. Today’s card is featuring the White Lotus digi stamp, and it happens to be my favorite from this release! So, let’s get right to it!

I began by printing the image on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. I don’t use any fancy software at my house. I work on a MacBook, and I just insert the image into a Pages document and resize it. I’m not tech savvy and simple gets the job done around here. However, I will say that I discovered this time that I can print the image with that shadow around it. I was pretty exited about that!

Anyhoo, I realize this is supposed to be a white lotus, but in all honesty, I forgot that part and started coloring with pink! Oops! I’m just going with, it’s art and I can make it any color that I want! Am I right?! The Copic markers used on this image were RV00, RV91, RV93, RV95, Y08, Y15, YG13 and YG17. That combo of pinks might be my new favorite!

Once I was done with the markers, I did go back in with some PrismaColor pencils in the nooks and crannies to deepen those shadows. I trimmed the panel using the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles and splattered it using Royal Talens Amsterdam Titanium White Acrylic Ink.

Once that was dry, I mounted it to a black panel using foam tape, because dimension! I wanted a small sentiment, because I didn’t want to cover up too much of the coloring, so I opted for this hugs sentiment from the PinkFresh Studio Sending Phrase Builder set. I cut it once from Mirror Gold cardstock and twice from black cardstock. I also cut the shadow twice from black as well. All of these were then adhered together using liquid glue, and glued to the panel. Everything was then mounted to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.

That finishes up this project! I really enjoyed coloring this digi from Alex, but I guess for my next one, I really should color it white, or at least try! I hope you’ll stop by and check out the full release over in Alex’s Etsy shop! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!

Reverse Confetti Forever and Always

Hello and welcome back! The latest Stock Your Stash Challenge is happening over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and this month’s theme is Wedding. I hope you’ll join in on the fun! Let’s get right in to the details of my wedding card!

I began my project by stamping a floral and several leaves from the Reverse Confetti Peony Stamp set on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Once stamped, I heat set them using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. Then I added color using Copic markers RV00, RV10, RV11, RV32, R85, G20, G21 and G24.

When I had finished the coloring, I used the coordinating Peony Confetti Cuts to trim those out. I also used the Reverse Confetti Stitched Circles Cover Panel to to cut a panel from Neenah 110lb, because the background needed some interest.

I stamped the sentiment, which is from the Reverse Confetti Word Up stamp set, on black cardstock using VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder. I had to play around with the placement of the flower, leaves and sentiment before I could adhere anything.

I added foam tape to the back of the floral and tucked the leaves behind it, securing those with glue. I added the remaining leaves to the panel using foam tape, along with the sentiment. Everything was then adhered to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb. I had to add embellishments, right?! No card is complete without embellishments! I opted for some pearls from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

That finishes up this card! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’ll head over to the Reverse Confetti blog to participate in this month’s challenge. Don’t forget to stay awesome friend!

Simon says stamp floral miss you

Hello! Hello! Hello! I hope you’re having a fabulous day! Thanks so much for stopping by today to take a peek at today’s card featuring the All About You Stamp set from the newest Simon Says Stamp release, Make Magic! This has been such a fun release to work with, and so many wonderful things in the release! Let’s get into the details of the project!

I paired the sentiment with a favorite floral set of mine, Best Friend Ever Stamp set, also from Simon! I began by stamping one of the floral images from the Best Friend Ever set several times on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using VersaMark ink and heat setting them using Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder. I used Copic Markers BG70, BG72, BG75, BG93 and YG61 to color the images.

Once those were colored, I used the coordinating die to cut them out. I set those aside while I worked on the rest of the card. I chose the Miss You sentiment from the SSS All About You set and stamped it on Neenah 110lb using the same ink and embossing powder. I wanted a dramatic backdrop for the flowers, so I chose black! I used the SSS Detail Petal Plate and cut the black panel. It’s very hard to see, but there is some added detail under the flowers.

It still needed something, so I gold splattered the black panel using Royal Talens Amsterdam Light Gold Acrylic Ink, and that did the trick! I played around with the placement of the sentiment and flowers until I decided what I liked.

Once placement was decided, I adhered the sentiment and florals to the black panel using a combination of liquid glue and foam tape, trimming the excess. The black panel was then adhered to my card base, also Neenah 110lb, using SSS Dot Tape Runner.

That does it for this project! I love the blue flowers against the black backdrop! I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire Make Magic release! Like i said earlier, there’s so many fun things to check out! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!

Simon Says Stamp You are Awesome

Hello and welcome back crafty friends! I’m back with another card featuring the all new All About You stamp set from the newest Simon Says Stamp Make Magic release! I love large sentiments and this set is perfect! Have you checked out the new release yet? What are some of your favorites? Let’s get into today’s project!

I began by stamping the SSS Repeating Rainbows Background stamp on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossing it afterwards using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I then trimmed it using the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles. I knew I was going to color the image and didn’t want to waste time coloring portions that I wasn’t going to use.

The Copic markers that I used for coloring were RV02, YR21, BG32 and BG01. I stamped the You are Awesome sentiment from the SSS All About You stamp set on Neenah 110lb using the same black ink and embossing powder. I repeated the stamping and embossing process one more time, stamping with VersaMark ink the second time. By double embossing, it gives it a smoother finish.

I pulled out some cardstock from The Stamp Market and die cut the SSS Detail Elm Leaves a few times from three different colors along with white. I also used the PinkFresh Studio Slim Stitched Scalloped Rectangles to cut a white frame. I cut that up to use as a decorative border on either side of the sentiment, adhering with liquid glue. It needed something else so I used the PinkFresh Studio Slim Stripes Die to cut a strip of coordinating cardstock and glued that along the stitch on the frame.

I positioned the sentiment atop the colored panel and glued the elm leaves under it before adhering with foam tape. I adhered the panel to black cardstock using foam tape as well, and then adhered the whole thing to my card base, which is also Neenah 110, using the SSS Dot Tape Runner.

That’s it for this card! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Stop by and check out the entire Make Magic release, and let me know your favorites! Have a wonderful day and stay awesome!

Reverse Confetti Special Delivery

Hey! Hey! Hey! Thanks for joining me today! For this post, I’m sharing a project for the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge! This month’s card making theme is, Oh Baby! I hope that you’ll play along for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store! More details to follow! For my project, I had to use The Bear Up There set, because it’s just too darn cute! Let’s get into the details.

To begin, I used Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and cut a panel using the new Peekaboo Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die. I then did some light ink blending on the panel, using leftover ink on my brush, which happened to be Distress Oxide Mustard Seed. I also used the Stitched Note and Frames Confetti Cuts die to cut a frame for the panel. I adhered the frame to the panel using foam tape for dimension.

I stamped the rainbow bear and cloud from The Bear Up There set using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed them using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I stamped and embossed a few more clouds as well. I used Copic markers RV00, RV10, Y00, Y02, BG000, BG01, C00, E00, E40, E42, E43 and E70 to color the images. Once those were done, I used the coordinating Confetti Cuts to run them through the die cutting machine.

I adhered the bear and a cloud directly in the center of the Peekaboo Panel using foam tape, and positioned the remaining clouds around the panel and frame, adhering those with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. I then slightly bent the peekaboo areas so that they would pop up, if you will. This was then adhered to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.

That finishes this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’ll join our Stock Your Stash Challenge this month! You can head to the Reverse Confetti Blog for more details and the link to join in on the challenge! And a chance to win a $20 gift certificate!

Stay awesome sweet friend!

Alex Syberia Design Coloring Therapy

Hello Crafty Friends! Thanks for stopping by today to check out my project for the new July release from the awesome Alex Syberia! Lots of fun things in this release, and of course, some beautiful flowers for your coloring pleasure! To celebrate Alex’s new release, we are having a super fun Instagram Hop, with a chance to win a $20 gift certificate for her shop! You can check out her Instagram or my Instagram for all the details! For today’s project, I’m featuring the Coloring Therapy A2 Panel, so let’s get started!

I began by printing the image on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. When I printed the image, I did adjust the opacity down to about 30%. By doing this, you can get somewhat of a no-line look, especially when watercoloring. I then got busy coloring. I started with the purples, and thought that I was going to color the whole thing purple to resemble grapes, but then decided that it might be cool to do rainbow colors instead.

The Copic Markers that I used were BV000, BV00, BV01, BV02, BV04, BV23, BV29, Y00, Y06, Y08, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, RV00, RV02, RV11, RV32, R85, YR23, YR24, YG11, YG13, YG17, BG000, BG01 and BG02. Goodness gracious, that’s a lot of markers, right!?!? Anyhoo, once everything was colored, I used the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles to trim the panel.

I also used a Copic Multiliner 0.3 to add back the black dots on the “berries” as they got lost during the coloring process. I opted for a Thanks sentiment using the Concord and 9th Scripted Thanks die cut. I cut it three times from black cardstock and adhered those together using liquid glue. I also cut the SSS Etched Dragonfly from black cardstock.

I adhered the sentiment and the dragonfly to the colored panel using glue, and adhered the panel to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb, using foam tape for dimension. To finish up the project, I added some Soft Snowfall Pearls from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards. I thought the softness of them added a nice little touch!

I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope you found some inspiration to get crafty in your space! Head on over to Alex’s Etsy shop to check out the full release! You don’t want to miss it. Stay awesome sweet friend!

Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti Day Three

Hello Crafters and welcome back to day three of the Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti! The release will be going live tomorrow, woohoooo! Please note that new product links will not be active until then. To celebrate the countdown, we are having a blog hop, with a gift certificate up for grabs! Details below! For today’s projects, we are featuring the Oceans of Love and Hummingbirds sets! So, let’s jump right in to the projects!

For my first project, Oceans of Love, I began by grabbing the new Circle of Waves Confetti Cuts and cutting five different colors of blue cardstocks. Most of the blue cardstock is from Concord and 9th, and one is from Simon Says Stamp. I traced the circular die and fussy cut a solid circle and glued the “waves” to that.

I used the Oceans of Love set to stamp some of the elements using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, and heat embossed them using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. Before cutting those out using the coordinating die, I used Copic Markers BG70, BG72 and BG75 to color the images. I took the “waves” circle and stamped the sentiment on it using VersaMark Ink and heat embossed that using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder.

I cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb using the Reverse Confetti Stitched Circles Cover Panel Confetti Cuts and poked out all of the larger circles and a few of the smaller circles. I used a scrap of the blue cardstock to run that through using that same cover panel, because I wanted these to be the “bubbles” on the card. I adhered the Stitched Circles panel to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb using liquid glue.

Then, I inlaid some of the blue “bubbles” for interest. I adhered the circular waves panel using foam tape and adhered the colored underwater elements using glue, adding some of the “bubbles” atop that as well. That finishes up this project!

For my second project, I’m featuring the Hummingbird set along with the new Circle Element! To begin this project, I stamped the Hummingbird set using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink on Neenah 110lb and heat embossed those using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I colored the images using Copic Markers Y08, Y11, Y13, Y15, RV10, RV11, RV13, RV32, RV34, RV66, YG11, YG13, N4, N6, G00, G20, BG70 and BG72.

Once those were all colored, I used the coordinating die to cut them out. I used the Circle Element Cover Panel to cut a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb, and I used another panel to cut a frame using the Stitched Note and Frames Confetti Cuts. I used PinkFresh Studio Sunshine ink to do some light ink blending on the panel and the frame.

I stamped the sentiment from the Hummingbird set using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed it using the same clear embossing powder. I trimmed that down and placed it behind the frame, and then added foam tape to the frame for dimension. I then adhered the frame to the Circle Element panel. I wanted a little added interest behind that Circle Element panel, so I cut piece of Concord and 9th Sea Glass cardstock and adhered that behind.

I then began adhering the Hummingbird elements to my framed panel using a combination of glue and foam tape. My panel was then adhered to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. To finish up this project, I added some PinkFresh Studio Jewels, because every project needs some bling in my opinion!

That does it for day three of the Countdown! I hope you enjoyed these projects, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Please note that the new product links will not be active until the release day and time.

As I mentioned earlier, to celebrate the countdown, we are having a blog hop! Leave comments along the hop for your chance to win a $15 gift certificate!
