Hello Friends and welcome back! Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m back today with a card featuring the new Elegant Modern Greetings from Simon Says Stamp’s latest release, Dear Friend. I always love getting to see all the awesome things in new releases, along with all of the amazing inspirations from the rest of the team. Let’s run through the details of this card.
To begin, I got to work on the background and pulled out some Dina Wakely Gloss Sprays in Magenta, Lemon and Turquoise. I played around with that until I was satisfied with the look and colors, letting it dry between applications because I didn’t want it to get muddy looking.
That does it for this project! I hope you enjoyed it! Don’t forget to click over and check out the entire Dear Friend release, and let me know your favorites! I hope you have a wonderful day, and stay awesome friend!
Hello Crafty Friends and thanks for joining me! Happy STAMPtember! It’s the best month of the year, in my opinion! What an amazing release! As exciting as today is, there’s a huge blog party happening tomorrow with exclusive promotions, so stay tuned for that! Today’s project is featuring the new Overlapping Drops background stamp. So, let’s go through the deets!
That finishes up this project. It was a relatively simple card, but I like how it came out just the same. I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire STAMPtember release, and let me know your favorites! Have a wonderful day, and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Friends and welcome back! I’ve been playing with goodies from the latest Erin Lee Creative release, and made another card using the new Sketched Floral Foil Cover Plate. So let’s run through the details!
All too often I get caught up in the thought that everything needs to be colored. Guess what? It doesn’t! I quite like this white and gold simplistic design on this one! Anyhoo, I began this project by embossing the Sketched Floral Foil Cover Plate onto a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. That provided just a tad of underlying detail.
I foiled the same plate using Spellbinders Gold Hot Foil and fussy cut those images and placed foam tape on the back. When adhering them to the embossed panel, I offset them just the slightest little bit so that you could still see the embossed details. I also added some gold splatter using Royal Talens Light Gold Acrylic Ink for some added interest.
For the sentiment, I cut the Hello Word Die once from gold cardstock and four more times from Neenah 110lb and adhered all of those together using liquid glue. I made the sentiment so thick because it was going atop the flowers that were adhered with foam tape, and I needed it to be quite sturdy.
Hello Crafters and welcome back! Waffle Flower has monthly challenges and I’m super excited to be co-hosting week one with my special friend Rachel! This week’s theme is Leaves, which is just perfect for the upcoming fall weather. You can head over to Waffle Flower for all the challenge details! So let’s get into my project!
For my project, I opted to use the Fall Leaves Die set, along with a couple of other Waffle Flower products. I began by cutting the solid leaf dies from watercolor paper twice. I got out a water brush and my Karin Brushmarkers to do a little bit of watercoloring on them. Very quick and simple technique of adding water to the leaves and dropping in color from the markers. Once satisfied with the colors, I set them aside to dry.
I adhered the gold leaf detail to the solid leaves using liquid glue. Now that I had the panel cut and the leaves ready to do, I needed to decided on a sentiment. The Oversized Smile Word Die fit within the space that I had to work with, so I cut it once from that same mirror gold cardstock and three more times from Neenah 110lb cardstock and glued all of those together.
I began adhering the leaves to the die cut panel using glue, creating a row at the top and the bottom. Once those were all done, I trimmed off the stems. Since I had previously put foam tape on the back of the die cut panel, I went ahead and adhered that to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb as well.
The only thing left to do was glue the sentiment in the center of the panel. I didn’t even add bling to this card! Can you believe that? I can’t, actually! I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope you’ll join us in the challenge! Leaves is such a great theme for this month! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome friend!
Hello Friends and welcome back! Thanks for stopping by! Today’s card is featuring the new Tropical Leaves from Reverse Confetti’s July release! It’s a super simple card, but I love the greens and yellows! Let’s get into it!
I’m going to start off by saying that the gel print that these leaves were made from was created a REALLY long time ago! This particular gel print was made using regular, inexpensive acrylic paint on thin white paper. The only other tools used were a gel plate, obviously, and a brayer.
I used the RC Celebrate Tag Confetti Cuts to cut the shadow portion from patterned paper from Vicki Boutin, and the letters from black cardstock twice. I adhered all of those together using glue. I then glued the sentiment to the note portion of the frames, and adhered that in the center of my card using foam tape.
I stamped the Tropical Leaves on my gel print using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed them using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. Once that was done, I used the Tropical Leaves Confetti Cuts die to run those through my die cutting machine. Remember earlier when I said that this gel print was created on thin white paper? Well, my leaves needed some extra thickness, so I ran the leaf die cuts through the machine again using Neenah 110lb and glued those together for sturdiness. Those were then glued to the corners of my card.
To finish up, I added some sparkling clear confetti, because bling! See, super simple card! I just loved how that patterned paper matched my gel print leaves so well! If you haven’t checked out the Reverse Confetti July release, whatchoo waiting for?!?!
Thanks again for stopping by today, and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Crafty Friend! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by for today’s card, which is featuring the Chevron Builder along with the Hugs not Ughs Layering Die from the ever so beautiful Erin Lee. Now for the details!
I had previously made a card using these same chevron pieces and had so many left over that I made a second card! I cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock for adhering the pieces. I placed foam tape on the back of the chevron pieces and began adhering them to the panel.
Don’t you just love this sentiment?! It has definitely been added to my list of favorites! I die cut the sentiment once from holographic cardstock and twice from Neenah 110, adhering those together using liquid glue. That was then glued to the shadow, which was cut from black cardstock.
I adhered the sentiment to the panel off center and added some Studio Katia Onyx Crystals to one of the chevron pieces. I then adhered that panel to a black panel for contrast. I just love using black on my cards! Do you like using black, or not?
Everything was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. And, that finishes up this card! I’m really loving this Chevron Builder, and foresee it getting a lot of use in the future! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hey there Friends! Thanks for joining me again today, as I’m featuring a product from the new Simon Says Stamp Make Magic release! This has been a super fun release to work with! Who am I kidding?! All of their releases are awesome and super fun to work with! Anyhoo, today’s project is featuring the Slimline Floral Builder Stencil, so let’s get into the details!
I wanted a sub-sentiment, so I rifled through my SSS Reverse Sentiment Strips to find one that related to friends and trimmed that out using the SSS Sentiment Labels Die. I went ahead and glued the Friends sentiment directly to my panel, while adding the sub-sentiment using foam tape. I then adhered this panel to another black cardstock panel for contrast using the SSS Dot Tape Runner.
I cut a mini slimline card base using Neenah 110lb and splattered that with Royal Talens Amsterdam Oxide Black Acrylic Ink. I attached the panel to my card base using foam tape for dimension, because dimension is life! Now that I had everything assembled, I could adhere the dragonfly just hanging off the panel, but not hanging off the card base, and that was done using glue as well.
Super simple card today, but I love the black elements paired with the rainbow ink blending! I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire Make Magic release from SSS! Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to stay 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!
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 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!
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.
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!
