Celebrate Today, and Everyday

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a new card using some Paper Smooches products.

Here is my card —

Celebrate Today and Everyday

I started this card with a Core’dinations yellow card base which I cut to a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 card. Then I cut a piece of Neenah Solar white to 4×4 to be the front panel. For the images, I used some free digi images from the Paper Smooches blog. I colored the feathers with Copic markers (check the supply list for all the colors I used).

For the border strip, I cut the scallop punch from American Crafts on Simon Says Stamp Smoke card stock. I adhered that to the left side of the front panel. On top of the strip, I placed a bunch of feathers, which I tied with some black twine from Doodlebug, I finished the bow with a gem Hero Arts.

For the sentiment, I used the Pretty Phrases from Paper Smooches and embossed it on Black Licorice card stock from Bazzil.

To finish the card, I added some stitch lines on the setiment strip and added more gems from Hero Arts around the card.

That’s it for this card. Thank you for reading.

SMILE – It’s Your Birthday

Hi everyone. I’m back with a new card for you today – well not really a new card. I made this card a few months ago and life happened before I was able to post this. So here I am today sharing this card.

Here is the card —

Smile Its Your Birthday

I started this card with a card base from Core’dinations. I cut the largest rectangle from the MFT Stitched Rectangle Stax from Neenah Solar White card stock. I created a circle template and colored it in using different colors of Tim Holtz Distress inks to create a rainbow ink blended effect.

For the sentiment, I cut the smile die cut from Little Yellow Bicycle from Bazzil Black Licorice card stock. To make it look like an embellishment, I added some Wink of Stella to the entire word and then finished it off with Glossy Accents. After it dried, it looked like an enamel accent which I really liked. I will definitely do that more often. For the second sentiment, I spelled out the words using Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABC and embossed it with white embossing powder on black card stock.

To finish the card, I added some black enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye to give it a finished look.

That’s it for this card.

I really feel productive and hopefully this continues until next year. Four months in a craft funk is no joke. I’m pretty excited to be creating again – stress free.

Happy Birthday! (Lawn Fawn Critters)

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a birthday card I made using Lawn Fawn stamps.

Here is my card –

Happy Birthday Critters

(I’m sorry for the picture quality but it was quite dark and gloomy when I took this picture and I had to do a lot of editing to make this picture bright.)

I started this card with a 4 bar Neenah Solar White card base. I attached the piece of patterned paper with the same size as the card base from the Lawn Fawn Daphne’s Closet paper collection. For the front panel, I stamped various critters from different Lawn Fawn Stamps. I used the masking technique to make the critters look like they are behind and/or in front of each other. When I finished stamping, I colored the images with Copic markers. For the sentiment, I stamped the birthday sentiment from Year 1 using Versafine Onyx black ink and clear embossing powder.

I centered the biggest stitched rectangle die from My Favorite Things on the image to create the stitched panel. To finish the card, I adhered the panel to base with foam tape and highlighted the party hats with the Zig Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.

This card is an entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. The theme for this week is Anything Goes.

Love, Laugh, Smile

Hi everyone. I’m here today with a card for the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Bloghop.

I have yet to be successful coloring an image with watercolor or do some no line coloring, so I decided to do something I am sure I know how to do – create a background with watercolors.

Here is my card —

DO RE MI-ssing You

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for the CAS-ology Challenge. The CUE CARD for this week is MUSIC.

Week 146 - Music

I was trying to think of a way to interpret music and I had a “You Are My Sunshine” card at back of my head. But I definitely wanted to try and think outside the box. Then an idea hit me, and I think this could be one of my favorite card I’ve made. The card came out exactly how I imagined it which is rare for me. It may not be clean and simple with a lot of white space, but i think grey is pretty close. 🙂

Here is my card —

DO RE MIssing You

I die cut the letters / words DO, RE, MISSING, and YOU from different colors using the My Favorite Things Bright Lights Alphabet. I wanted to create a pun on words so I created a space between MI and ssing. For an accent image, I didn’t have any large music note stamp or die cut, so I found a clip art online and cut it. I emembellishedhe note with some Clear Wink of Stella pen and then layered with Glossy Accents.

For the card base, I used a standard size top folding card in Simon Says Stamp Smoke card stock. I stamped the music notes stamp from the Teeny Tiny Backdrops from Lawn Fawn is Hero Arts Soft Granite ink.

That’s it for this card.
