Erin Lee Creative Hello Somewhere Rainbow

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!

I began the project by cutting the Somewhere Rainbow twice from four different colors of cardstock from The Stamp Market. I cut them twice from each color because I wasn’t sure how many that I was going to need. I needed a panel to work on, so I cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles.

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!

Reverse Confetti Celebrate

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.

To begin this project, I cut an A2 card base using Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and added some ink blending using PinkFresh Studio Fresh Pear and Lemon Whip inks, along with some white splatter using Royal Talens Amsterdam Titanium White Acrylic Ink. I love this ink for splatter because it stays bright white, and it has the perfect splatter consistency! I used the Reverse Confetti Stitched Note and Frames Confetti Cuts to cut a panel of Neenah 110lb, and adhered the outside frame to my card base using foam tape.

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!

Erin Lee Creative Chevron Hi

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?

To begin this project, I pulled out six colors of cardstock from The Stamp Market and die cut the Chevron Builder from those colors twice. I also trimmed a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock just smaller than an A2 card to layer the chevron pieces on.

I put foam tape on the back of the chevron pieces and began adhering them in rainbow order, leaving a small space between, until the entire panel was covered.

I die cut the Erin Lee Creative Jumbo Hi once from Glossy Black cardstock, and two more times from black cardstock and adhered all of those together using liquid glue. I then glued the sentiment in the center of the chevron panel.

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!

Spellbinders Chill Bear Winter Wishes

Hello Friend and thanks for stopping by! For today’s project, I’m featuring the Chill Bear and the Color Block Scenic Scape dies from the July releases from Spellbinders. There are so many beautiful and adorable Christmas and holiday things to choose from! I had a lot of fun playing with the Chill Bear, so let’s get into the details!

I began by cutting the Chill Bear and a bunch of “hills” using the Color Block Scenic Scape dies from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. For the bear, I did cut two additional legs and I cut the face from pink and black cardstock so that I could inlay those pieces. I cut the snout and colored that using Copic Markers C00, N0 and 110 Black. I also cut some of the included trees from green cardstock. I smeared the trees with Tacky When Dry Gel Medium and set those aside to dry.

I cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 80lb cardstock just smaller than an A2 card, because I needed something to glue the “hills” to. I began adhering the hills to the panel using liquid glue, leaving the tops of the panels unglued so that I could tuck the trees inside. Once the trees were dry, I sprinkled some Crystal Glitter over them to give just a little bit of sparkle.

For the sentiment, I cut the Winter Wishes, which is from the Spellbinders Christmas Mix & Match Sentiments, once from Spellbinders Gold Mirror cardstock and twice from Neenah 110lb and glued all of those together. For the last bit of die cutting, I went ahead and cut the scarf from red cardstock and glued that to the bear.

I had to play around with the placement of the trees, the sentiment and the bear, but once decided, I adhered the bear to the panel using foam tape. I tucked the trees into the hills and glued the sentiment to the panel. Once all of that was done, I grabbed the Spellbinders Layered Christmas Tree Stencil and strategically placed some snow, using Gina K Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel.

To finish up, I adhered the panel to a red cardstock panel using foam tape and that was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to stay awesome!

Please note that new product links will not be active until the release goes live on August 8th. Let’s get into the details for today’s card.

This card is using the new Hello Daisy Cover Panel, and I opted to use it as it was intended. To begin the card, I pulled out a panel of Fluid Hot Press Watercolor Paper and some Distress Oxide Spray in Spun Sugar. I sprayed the ink on my glass mat and spritzed it with water and proceeded to do some ink smooshing. Once I was satisfied with how it looked, I set it aside to dry and began some die cutting.

I die cut the cover panel from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and did some light ink blending using Distress Oxide inks Spun Sugar, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass and Dusty Concord. I went ahead and die cut a bunch of the included flowers using Sizzix cardstock in various colors and adhered those together using liquid glue.

Once the ink smooshed panel was dry, I popped it in the Misti and stamped the sentiment, which is from the new Scripty Sentiments Stamp Set, using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I then adhered the frame to that using foam tape for dimension. I began adhering the colored flowers using a combination of foam tape and glue.

I adhered the flowers in their designated spaces on the cover panel, as well as, adding some around the panel and on the frame itself. To finish up, I adhered the panel to a Neenah 110lb card base, and added some PinkFresh Studio Jewels to some of the flowers.

That does it! I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to hop along and leave comments by noon central time on August 7th for your chance to win a Reverse Confetti $15 gift certificate! The hop list is below! Happy hopping!

Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti Day One

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.

Simon Says Stamp All About You Rainbow Floral

Hello Friends! Hope you’re doing well and having a wonderful day! I’m super excited because I’m participating in a Simon Says Stamp Instagram hop to celebrate the new Make Magic release! You’ll definitely want to check that out because there are gift certificates to be won!! More details below. I just can’t even with this release! There’s so many awesome things to choose from! I wish that I didn’t have to choose, ya know, and could just buy the whole dang release! I’m a huge lover of stand alone sentiment dies, so of course I had to buy some of those! Anyhoo, today’s card is featuring the all new All About You stamp set, along with a couple of older favorites of mine. So let’s get into the deets!

I began this card by trimming a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock just smaller than an A2 card base, and popping it in the Misti. I chose three of the sentiments from the All About You stamp set, and proceeded to do some repeat stamping using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Not going to lie, this took a little bit of time! Mainly because I was being careful and trying to get the placement right and stamp straight all at the same time! I really need to get one of those acetate grids to put down! After each set of stamping, I was heat embossing the sentiments using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder.

Once all of the sentiments were stamped, I filled in the gaps with the hearts that are included in this set. Next, I pulled out the SSS Cosmo Flower Petals die and cut the detailed petals from various colored cardstock. I believe most of the colored cardstock is from The Stamp Market, but not 100% sure. I ended up cutting enough petals to make two flowers. I cut the detailed center from black cardstock twice and the solid center from white cardstock twice. I adhered the centers together using liquid glue, and began gluing the flower petals to the back of that for each flower separately. So when I was done, I had two completed flowers.

I ended up adhering both of those flowers together, turning the top one slightly to get a fuller flower. The card still needed something, and of course, I thought of leaves, so I used the SSS Detail Elm Leaves for this. I cut a few leaves from vellum because I didn’t want to take away from the flower. I glued the leaves to the stamped panel before gluing the flower down.

I adhered the panel to a black cardstock panel using foam tape, because that’s my jam! Black cardstock and foam tape! Then I adhered that to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.

That finishes up this project! I had fun making this one! I love the bold sentiments with the rainbow flower! I hope you enjoyed this card, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Hop over to Instagram to check out the hop that I mentioned earlier. SSS is giving away a $25 gift certificate to a lucky commenter at each stop on the hop! That’s twelve chances to win!!! You don’t want to miss that! Check out the entire Make Magic release and let me know your favorites, and don’t forget to stay awesome!

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 Hello Sunshine

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.

I adhered the yellow sunburst die cut directly to my card base using liquid glue, just above the strip of washi tape, and did some ink blending in the sun area using Distress Oxide Mustard Seed. I then popped that into the Misti and stamped the Hello Sunshine sentiment, which is from the SSS Hello Sunshine stamp set, using VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder. Then, I trimmed out the pieces from the patterned papers that I was going to need for my card.

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!

Simon Says Stamp Floral Friends

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!

To begin my project, I stamped the SSS Friendship Text Background on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, using VersaFine Onyx Black ink, and then heat set that using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I used the SSS Mini Slimline Rectangles to trim out a panel of the stamped background.

I adhered the SSS Floral Builder Stencil to the panel using masking tape, and proceeded to do some rainbow ink blending using Distress Oxide Ink in Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron and Broken China. I used the SSS Friends die to cut that three times from black cardstock, and adhered those together using liquid glue. I also went ahead and cut the SSS Etched Dragonfly once from black as well.

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!
