Hello Crafty Lovelies! Hope you’re doing well and having a wonderful day! I’m back today featuring a couple of cool products from Erin Lee Creative, and can I just say, I love how this card turned out! Let’s get right into the details!
Once that was cut, I splattered it using Royal Talens Amsterdam Oxide Black Acrylic Ink and set it aside to dry. I began assembling the first rainbow in the center of the panel. For this one rainbow, each arch is adhered with foam tape.
I had to play with placement of the remaining rainbows as to fill in the panel the best way. Once that was decided, I began adhering the other rainbows, using a combination of glue and foam tape, alternating arches. Hopefully you can see that from the pics.
Once the panel was full of rainbows, I die cut the Hello Word Die once from Glossy Black cardstock and three times from black cardstock, gluing all of those together for dimension, because dimension rocks! I adhered the Hello sentiment in the center of the panel atop the center rainbow. My panel was then adhered to a black panel using foam tape, and then to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb.
That finishes up this project! You guys, Erin has some of the cutest rainbows, and I’m just in love with this one! I hope you’ll stop by her website and check out her awesome products! Stay awesome friend!
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!
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!
Hello there crafty friend! I hope you’re having an amazing day! I’m so glad that you stopped by! I was beyond excited when asked to play with some goodies from Erin Lee Creative! Like beyond! So, today’s card is featuring the Chevron Builder and Jumbo Hi dies from her previous releases. Let’s jump right in to the details, shall we?
This was then adhered to a black panel for contrast, and then to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. This card felt like it needed some embellishments, so I opted for some black crystals from Studio Katia.
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! I ended up with enough chevron pieces to make a second card, so I’ll post that soon! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Crafty Friends and welcome back! I hope you’re doing well and having a fabulous day! Thanks for joining me today! I’m super excited to announce that I’ve joined the LDRS Design Team, and today is my first project for them! Today’s project is featuring the Garden Grandeur Slimline Stamp, Stencil and Die set from LDRS. So let’s just jump right into the details, shall we?
I cut an A2 panel of Neenah 110lb and used the Pink Tutu ink to do some very light ink blending in the corners. I also used the LDRS Pretty Patterns Slimline Die to cut a frame from Neenah 110lb as well. I positioned the frame diagonally across my panel, trimming off the excess. This is a great way to stretch your supplies! You can use those Slim Line dies in unique ways by positioning them differently on other size cards!
The excess pieces were then added around the corners of the panel, using liquid glue, for added interest. No sense in wasting those right?!? For the sentiment, I chose to use the LDRS Chloe Alpha Lowercase and cut the letters hi three times from Neenah 110lb, adhering with glue.
I played around with the placement of the flowers and sentiment, and when I finally was satisfied, I glued the sentiment directly to the panel and adhered the large floral using foam tape in the upper corner. I trimmed the excess, and placed the remaining portion of the floral in the bottom corner. I still had excess, so I added that to the side. Again, no sense in wasting it! To finish up, I added some pearls for added interest, and adhered everything to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty in your own space! I took no waste to a whole new level on this card! I should have taken a pic of the tiny little pieces that I had left over! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Fetti Friends and welcome back! So glad that you stopped by today for the Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti Day One! There is an August mini release and it’s a sweet one with beautiful cover panels with florals, along with a beautiful sentiment stamp set! To celebrate, we are having a blog hop! So hop along and leave comments for your chance to win a gift certificate! More details below. Please note that the new product links will not be available until the release goes live on August 8th. So let’s get into the details for my card!
I made a few cards using products from this release, as you’ll see in the upcoming days, while trying to use the products in different ways, rather than their intended use. For today’s card, I used the new Hello Daisy Cover Panel. This die includes a large Hello die, with the included frame and floral dies and I decided to make that Hello the focal point! I began by cutting the Hello die from black cardstock. I believe that I ended up cutting it five times to cover this A2 panel.
I also cut the Hello five times from black fun foam for dimension. I adhered all of the cardstock die cuts to the fun foam die cuts using liquid glue. I wanted a panel for assembly to work on, so I cut an A2 panel of Neenah Classic Crest 80lb cardstock for this.
The easiest way for me to get good placement of the Hello die cuts was to start in the middle of the panel with the full Hello word. I adhered that with glue and began placing the remaining die cuts, trimming of the excess, until my panel was completely covered.
I die cut a bunch of the included flowers using various colors of Sizzix cardstock, and adhered those around using a combination of glue and foam tape. To finish, I adhered the panel to a card base, which is Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock.
That does it! I hope you enjoyed these projects, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! As I mentioned earlier, we are having a blog hop with tons of inspiration projects from the team! Hop along and leave comments by noon central time on August 7th for your chance to win a Reverse Confetti $15 gift certificate! You don’t want to miss it! Hop list below.
Hello Friends! Thanks for stopping by today! The new SSS Make Magic release is awesome! I’ve had a lot of fun playing with some of the items from this release, including the new SSS Sunburst Die! So, let’s hop right into the details, shall we?
I started this project by die cutting the SSS Sunburst die from eight different sheets of patterned papers from my stash, as well as, cutting it from a piece of yellow cardstock. I ended up trimming off some of the bottom of the yellow die cut piece. I added a strip of complimentary washi tape, from Paper Source, along the bottom of my card base, which is Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock.
Once those were trimmed, I inlaid those on my card using foam tape, because dimension is life! I felt like it was missing something though! This is when I dorked around for quite a while trying to figure out what it needed! Do you ever do that too? Anyhoo, after much deliberation, I settled on some gold stars, thank goodness! I pulled out the SSS Mini Stars Party Die and cut that from some gold cardstock. I adhered the stars using glue and finally called it quits on this one! I love card making, but I get on my own nerves hem hawing around trying to figure stuff out sometimes!
Well, that finishes this project up! I hope you enjoyed it, and I really hope you’ll stop by and take a look at the entire Make Magic release! So many awesome things! Thanks for stopping by today, and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Friends and welcome back to my blog! The new release from Simon Says Stamp, Make Magic, is live today!! Have you checked it out? Oh my word, SO many awesome things! For today’s project, I’m featuring a double stenciling technique using the new SSS Slimline Floral Builder Stencil! So let’s get right into it, shall we?
To be honest, the first attempt at this card was not a success! And, sometimes that happens! It’s unfortunate when it does happen, but sometimes it does! I didn’t get a good impression with the stencil using the gel. To tackle this situation, I opted for using the trusty Pixie Spray! Ok, now that you know the back story, I’ll tell ya how I created the card!
This is where the error in my ways surfaced the first time, as I only adhered the SSS Slimline Floral Builder Stencil with masking tape. To correct on my second attempt, I gave that stencil a good spray of Pixie Spray and positioned it atop my rainbow panel, securing it with masking tape, just to be sure! I then, added black Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel, because I was going for a silhouette look against my rainbow background.
I added the frame to my rainbow panel using foam tape for dimension, and I added the sentiment using glue. This was then adhered to my card base, which is Neenah 110lb as well, using the new SSS Dot Tape Runner.
That finishes this project! It was a super fun one to make, except for the mishap stenciling my first time! Live and learn! I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire Make Magic release! Have a wonderful and stay awesome!

Comment along the hop for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Spellbinders! Details below. I’m showcasing a card that I created using the July Card Kit of the Month, so let’s jump right in!
I loved the Bonjour sentiment in the ephemera pack, so I placed foam tape on the back of that and adhered it towards the bottom of my card. I wanted a sub-sentiment, so I foiled the Hello Friend sentiment, which is from the Spellbinders Everyday Sentiments II set, using Champagne foil. I adhered that under the main sentiment using foam tape as well.
To finish up the project, I adhered two of the included dimensional butterflies for added interest. I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Head over to Spellbinders to check out all of the clubs they have to offer!

For today’s projects, we are featuring the Oceans of Love and Hummingbirds sets! So, let’s jump right in to the projects!
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!
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!
