Friendship Has Its Perks

Hi everyone!

I made this card a while back but failed to post it earlier so I decided to post it today. This card uses the supplies from the Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit.

Here is my card —

Friendship Has Its Perks

I started this card with a standard size card cut from Neenah Classic Cream card stock with the fold on top. I adhered a piece of patterned paper with the same size from Basic Grey’s Grand Bazaar 6×6 paper pad. For the top panel, I cut a 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 panel from the same Neenah Classic Cream card stock. I stamped the small coffee mug from the What’s Brewing set towards the right of the panel like they were stacked using the masking technique. I stamped it in a variety of inks from Simon Says Stamp which will be listed below in my supply list.

For the sentiment, I used the stamp from the same What’s Brewing set and stamped it vertically with Doll Pink ink from Simon Says Stamp.

To finish the card, I adhered some enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye and attached the panel on the card base using foam tape.

That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading.

Here is my card —

Thanks Ever So Much

I started this card with a standard size card with the fold on top using Neenah Desert Storm card stock. I adhered a panel of patterned paper from Basic Grey’s Fresh Cuts 6×6 pad. I also cut a strip of patterned paper from the same Fresh Cuts pad to adhere to the left side of the card.

For the flowers, I was looking at the free digi section of the Paper Smooches website and I fell in love with these flowers. I immediately printed them and colored them in with various colors of Copic Markers. I attached them with foam tape and accented the center with a clear gem from Hero Arts.

For the sentiment, I used the Pretty Phrases stamp set and stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossed it for a raised finish.

To finish the card, I adhered some coordinating colors of sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Fortunately, the Simon Says card kit for October was coffee themed and it was the perfect oppurtunity to make a coffee themed card.

Here is my card —

Sending A Latte Thanks

I started this card with a standard size card with the fold on top from some Dark Chocolate card stock from Simon Says Stamp. To make the border, I cut 1/8 inch strips of patterned paper from Basic Grey’s Grand Bazaar 6×6 paper pad. I also inked a scrap piece of paper with versamark and embossed it with gold embossing powder from American Crafts. From the embossed paper, I cut more 1/8 inch strips for the border. I attached the strips on each edge of the card base to make the border frame.

For the focal image, I stamped the coffee mug from the What’s Brewing set from Simon Says Stamp in Versafine Onyx black ink on the yellow patterned paper from Basic Grey’s Grand Bazaar collection. I colored the small part of the coffee with a brown marker and also colored the inside of the mug with a yellow marker. I stamped the label “Java Nice Day” for the front of the mug. For the steam coming from the coffee, I heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder.

For the sentiment, I used the Latte Thanks sentiment and stamped it with VersaMark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

That’s it for this card. Be sure to check out Chaitali’s blog for all the details for the blog hop! Happy National Day of Coffee!

Wednesday Card Day – You Are Missed

Hi everyone!

Today’s post  is a resurrection of some sort. I started the Wednesday Card Day feature on my blog on October 2012. It was a way for me to share a card every Wednesday but after 3 posts, WCD just never happened again. I was busy and many things had to take top priority. When I again started blogging about my cards, they became random posts that just were posted any day. You can check out my previous Wednesday Card Day posts here, here and here.

I have decided to start Wednesday Card Day again and this time I’ve added a twist. I’ve been wanting to try and start making process videos for YouTube, so WCD posts will contain a video every single time. I am going to try my best to really keep up and post every Wednesday.

Wednesday Card Day Intro

So here is my card  –

You Are Missed

I started this card with some Neenah Dessert Storm card stock cut to a standard size landscape card. For the front panels, I used the watercolor effect papers from Basic Grey’s Fresh Cuts collection. I cut each paper into 3 3/4 x 1 1/2 strips of paper. I placed them side by side and stamped some of the flowers and the leaf from the Thinking of You stamp set from Simon Says Stamp usingVersaMark ink. Then I heat embossed the strips with white embossing powder from Martha Stewart. I then arranged the strips in the same order on the card base.

For the sentiment, I cut a 1 1/2 inch strip of vellum and stamped the sentiment You Are Missed from the same SSS stamp set. To finish the card I adhered the strip with glue dots towards the bottom.

Hey everyone! Today’s card is an entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

The theme for this challenge is – ANIMAL ANTICS. They are featuring Lawn Fawn stamps – and I love LF so much 🙂 so I decided to also use LF stamps since they have many cute animal images.

Here is my card —

Thanks

I started this card with some Bazzill Basics card stock in Feather Boa folded to a standard size card with the fold on top. I recently purchased a pack of note cards from Studio G with different kind of die cut images on the card. This particular one had a talk bubble as its die cut. I cut the card to a narrow panel and distressed the entire frontof the panel with some Angel Pink ink from Memento with a sponge dauber.

One of my favorite Lawn Fawn set is the Critters in the Forest and I always keep going back to that set. I love the owl, bird and the hedgehog. I stamped the log and hedgehog and stamped the bird on top of the hedgehog a couple of times to make it look like they are standing on top of each other trying to reach the talk bubble. Then I colored the entire image with some American Crafts Chromatix Markers. I am trying very hard to learn how to blend alcohol markers and I am still a work in progress. I will eventually get Copics when I think I am good enough and it will be worth the expense. 🙂

Every time you order directly from LF’s website, with your order they send a thank you stamp that can also be used with your projects. One of the stamps I received is the talk bubble thanks stamp and I thought it would be perfect for the card since there was already the die cut talk bubble image on the panel. I used VersaMark ink and white embossing powder from Martha Stewart. I stamped the sentiment directly on the Feather Boa card stock approximately where the die cut from the panel would be.

Then I adhered the panel using foam adhesives. I chose a floral pink toned pattern paper from Basic Grey’s Out of Print collection. I cut the paper into 2 1/4 strips of paper and adhered them close together. To finish the card, I rounded the bottom edges.

SUPPLY LIST:

1. Bazzill Basics card stock in Feather Boa
2. Studio G Talk Bubble die cut notecard
3. Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest set
4. Lawn Fawn’s complimentary Thanks stamp

That’s it for today. Thanks for reading 🙂

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Hey everyone!

Bloom Where You are Planted

I started this card with some yellow card stock from The Paper Company. It is a standard size landscape card with the fold on the top. I used the flower from the Daisy Phrases Good Day Sunshine collection from We R Memory Keepers. I randomly stamped the flower on the yellow card stock with some Cantaloupe ink from Memento for a tone on tone look. Then I attached a strip of floral patterned paper from Basic Grey’s Out of Print 6×6 paper pad. I don’t have a die cut machine so I free handed the plaque shape and stamped the sentiment from a Studio G set. I colored the word BLOOM with some Bic Mark It Markers. I used some brads from an office supply store and some green paper twine from Tim Holtz as accent pieces. To finish the card, I rounded the bottom corners.

Wednesday Card Day – I Love You

Today’s card is an entry for the CAS-ual Fridays Clean and Simple Challenge. The challenge for this week is

There will be an amazing prize from

So being that this week’s card needed to have a heart on it, here is my card for the challenge –

On a dark cream card stock base, I used a heart patterned paper from Hot of the Press Light Backgrounds. To that, I cut out three 1 1/4 x 1 1/4 squares from papers found in the Basic Grey 6×6 Out of Print pad. I used the “I Love You” stamp from the Operation Write Home – Year Round Sentiments from Hero Arts. I didn’t want to cut my stamp, so I carefully stamped each word and cleaned any ink i didn’t need, so I was able to stamp each word on a different piece. I just got some plain red card stock and punched out a heart and replaced the “o” on love. I used some stickles to make the heart stand out. I used the heart stamp from Lawn Fawn’s Winter Owl stamp set as a top and bottom border. To finish the card, I rounded the corners and drew white dash lines with a Sakura white gel pen for a faux stitching effect.
