Happy You’re My Friend

Hi everyone! Im here with another card I am entering for a couple challenges. I will link the challenges below.

Here is my card —

I started this card with a panel of Neenah Solar White card stock and I stamped flowers in coral and aqua inks. Then I accented the centers and blank spaces with grey ink. I cut the stamped panel to 4 x 5 1/4 and then used a curved border die to cut the panel on a curve.

On a standard size card base, I attached a grey striped paper from My Mind’s Eye. I curved the sentiment to match the curve of the panel and stamped it with Versamark and embossed it with a silver embossing powder. To finish the card, I attached the curved panel with foam adhesive.

I am entering this card to the following challenges –

You Are My Sunshine

This is my second post for the day. To check out my first post, click here

My second card for the day is also for the CASology Challenge. I am using the same CUE CARD which is MUSIC. This was the first card I made, so I decided to share and enter it as well.

Week 146 - Music

Here is my card —

You Are My Sunshine

I started this card with some Neenah Solar white card stock and I die cut the largest stitched rectangle from My Favorite Things. I stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABC and Simon Says Stamp Color and Sunshine using Versafine Onyx Black ink and Hero Arts shadow ink in Butter Bar. For the sun, I die cut a sun from the You & Me set from Sizzix with a paper from the Doodlebug Lemonade Stand 6×6 paper pack.

I adhered the panel on a piece of Simon Says Stamp Sunshine cards stock that is a standard size top folding card. To finish the card, I used some Pretty Pink Posh sequins. I also covered the sun with some clear Wink of Stella pen and covered with with Glossy Accents.

That’s it for this card. For a complete list of the all the products and tools I used, check out the supply list below.

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.

New Job? Yay

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card I made for a friend who landed a new job recently. I wasn’t sure how I was going to make this card since I really didn’t have any job related stamps. As I was looking through my stamps, the To Thine Own Shelf stamp from Simon Says Stamp really stood out with some images I could use. So I started with that and the idea just went in different directions from there. I also used other stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn.

Here is my card —

New Job Yay

I started this card with a standard card base with the fold on top from some Simon Says Stamp 120 lb white card stock. I stamped the images related to a workplace from the To Thine Own Shelf set and and I also stamped some sentiments from there and from other SSS sets. For the word “new job”, I didn’t have any so I used Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABC which is my favorite alphabet stamp ever. I stamped all images ans sentiments with a variety of ink colors.

I wanted the card to be one layer but I later decided to put a strip of patterned paper from Simple Stories on the side.

That’s it for this card.

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

I’m Back!!!!! and a new card

Hi everyone! It’s been almost two and a half months since my last post and since I made a card. My life these past two months were far from uneventful. My uncle came into town and stayed for a month and I spent most of my time with him. After he left, I just couldn’t get back into the swing of things. I felt pressured to make a card and every time I sat down to make one, my creative juices were completely dried up. I gave up and did something else and that happened pretty much everyday for the next month or so. I tried so hard but nothing worked. So I decided to give it some time and step away. Then today, I was watching a video tutorial on YT and I felt like creating. So here we are….

I started with the different challenge blogs I frequently join and listed the ones I wanted to join. This brings us to today’s post…

Here is my card –

I started this card with some Hero Arts Snow layering paper cut to a card base measuring 5 x 3 3/4 inches. I masked off a 1 inch column vertically towards the left of the card stock. I stamped the different flowers from the Truly Appreciated set from Hero Arts. I decided to use Versafine Onyx Black ink so I could clear emboss the flowers. For the shading, the wanted to have an ombre effect, I used the following inks – Hero Arts Soft Pool, Hero Arts Tide Pool, and Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue. For the sentiment, I used one of the greetings from the Little Hoot set from Hero Arts again stamping it in Versafine Onyx black and clear embossing powder.

To finish the card, I added some enamel dots from My Minds Eye and black gemstones from Hero Arts.

That’s it for this card.

This card is an entry for the following challenges:

1. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Clean and Simple featuring Hero Arts products

Thinking Of You

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card using WPlus9 and Simon Says Stamp products. I am entering this card for a few challenges which I will list at the end of this post.

Here is my card —

Thinking of You Wplus9

I started this card with the Carnation layering paper from Hero Arts cut to a standard size landscape card. For the front panel, I used Neenah Solar White cut to 5 1/4 by 4 inches.

The images I used are from the More Fresh Cuts set from WPlus9. I also used the coordinating die cuts. I cut a variety of flowers from the set and stamped them with different colors of Hero Arts and Simon Says with different layers for added depth. I arranged the cut flowers on the top right part of the panel to look like a bouquet. Some flowers were adhered straight to panel and others were stuck with foam tape.

For the sentiment, I stamped the “Thinking of You” sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp set with the same name. I stamped it with VersaMark ink and silver heat embossed it.

To finish the card, I added some shine to the flowers with the clear Wink of Stella glitter brush. I also placed some sequins in matching colors from Pretty Pink Posh.

That’s it for this this card.
