Hope Is Card

Hi,

Today’s card was inspired by the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Think Pink. This was in honor of October’s status as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I dug out a retired stamp set from Stampin’ Up called Hope Is. . . I paired this with another oldie but goodie, In the Garden stamp set from Fancy Pants Design. I love these large 12×12 sets from Fancy Pants and I really wish that they made more stamp sets. I have also made a quick video for this card. For some reason, I could not remember the name and color of Liquid Pearls in White Opal while I was recording. So, I shall be sure that you all know what that product is called. You may also notice that I added some captions in the video to that effect. If you can “Peanut Gallery” yourself I think that I just did. Without further ado, here is my card for today.

I started this card with a quarter sheet of white cardstock which I stamped the first large stamp image. I used Festive Berries Distress Ink and my MISTI to accomplish this. Next, I stamped a flourish using Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.  I also added another small flourish in Festive Berries. Last, but not least I added the sentiment using Festive Berries.

Now that I had my stamping done, I added the direct-to-paper ink in Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and a tiny bit of Festive Berries on the very edge. I also went back over the Festive Berries with Worn Lipstick to smooth out the color transition.

Once, the ink was dry I added tiny Liquid Pearl accents. I followed the natural lines and curves in my stamping to accent the shapes. I also added just a bit of Stickles in Glam Pink and Fruit Punch. I should mention that I was able to take a trip to my closest independent scrapbook store and came home with more Stickles this weekend. I think I might be part magpie, the shiny and glitter just gets to me. I let the Stickles dry overnight and then added round adhesive gems and small adhesive pearls.

The whole card was mounted to a piece of Rose Red cardstock which I trimmed down to give it a very narrow border. This all went to a top fold card  and that was it. I like the monochromatic feel of this card.

Hot Pink & Damask

Handmade Miss You Card

Featuring damask designs in hot pink

Hi all,

I was super busy the last week with tasks that have kept me away from my studio, computer, and in fact, out of state. I have returned to the state and thus my studio and now my computer! I have a fun card to share with you today. I adore all things damask, and I was noticing that I had not created a card that featured my favourite design element for awhile. I was also feeling the need to use a bright colour and that I wanted to use a more non-traditional colour on my traditional  motif. Thus the hot pink Miss You card was born.

I started by stamping the damask images on a piece of white cardstock using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. Something about hot pink damask just makes my day!

I then stamped the Linen Background Stamp from Stampin’ Up using Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. Over that, I stamped the French Script Background stamp, also from Stampin’ Up.  This time, I used the Picked Raspberry. I then broke out my handy-dandy ink blending tools and applied both Worn Lipstick and then Picked Raspberry to my white panel.

At this stage, I created my sentiment. I used my Epic 6 and Spellbinders Label 3 Nested Dies to cut out a very small square. I stamped the sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages by Papertrey Ink in Picked Raspberry and then heat embossed with Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder. I also cut the next larger square, this I directly applied Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry to. I adhered my fancy squares together.

I then mounted my damask panel to a piece of black cardstock and then added a little belly band of the same paper. I added the velvet ribbon and adhered my sentiment. Again, I stepped back from my Miss You Card and felt like it needed more.

I added the jumbo Lush brad and also used some adhesive nail heads on the sentiment. All of this and yet, it was still too plain. Enter Stickles, I used Crystal and Glam Pink as accents on my damask and finally the glitter beast was calm. I am looking forward to getting this baby out in the mail!

Hot Pink & Roses Graduation Card

Hiya!

It is graduation time in these parts and I have a few cards in the works for our graduates. Today’s card is a super girly one of one of my favorite people. I went with something very girly and feminine.  I have a little pink lover in my house and she definitely approves, in fact, she was a little upset that this card wasn’t for her. I may have to make another one for her.

I started with my quatrefoil panel which began the morning as a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ piece of white cardstock. I applied Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks using my Ink Blending Tools. I then stamped the quatrefoil image using Encore Gold Metallic Ink. The stamp was smaller then the panel so I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get it lined up. I ended up stamping four times to cover the background.

Once I had that done, I set that panel aside and went to work on the gold mat. This also started life a piece of white cardstock. I used my Gold ink pad and applied the ink directly to the edges of my paper. I made sure just to cover the edges that would be showing. Next, I tackled the bright pink paper.  I cut a piece of white cardstock, this time I painted the panel using Hot Pink Color shine. To do this I simply spritzed a puddle of color onto my craft mat and used a paintbrush to paint the edges of the paper.

Next, came the sentiment panel. I cut out the larger frame using black cardstock and then a smaller label in white cardstock. I inked the plain label with Picked Raspberry Ink. I then created the sentiment. For this I cut out the letters using the Cotton Candy dies from QuicKutz. I cut these out of white cardstock because I was apparently making things difficult for myself. 🙂 I then colored these with Black Velvet Color Shine. I set my letters aside to dry.

Congrats Pibk-7

In the mean time, I created my two roses. I made the lighter rose by cutting my petals out using my McGill Paper Blossoms punches and then inking them with Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks. For the dark pink rose, I cut out my petals and then spritzed them with the Hot Pink Color Shine. I actually made these up ahead of time since they needed to dry overnight. Once everything was inked and dried I shaped and then assembled my flowers. I added the two ribbons to my card base and assembled my elements. I stamped the decorative element below my sentiment using the same gold ink and once everything was glued down I added Black Diamond Stickles to my “Congrats.” I added a few adhesive gems and once everything was given time to dry and that was it.

Moroccan Card

Hiya All!

I am back again today with a little Moroccan number. I cannot remember where I saw my inspiration but it was a fabric with Moroccan lattice with pink and orange. Sometimes things like that just happen I’ll see something and think that would make an awesome card, and then it will rattle around in my brain for awhile and then eventually the actual inspiration will be gone but the idea it sparked remains. I will be adding my Moroccan Card to this week’s Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Stencil It.

I started with my Heidi Swapp Lattice Stencil and used my ink blending tool to apply Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Dried Marigold and Ripe Persimmon. I then stamped the script over my stenciling using Ripe Persimmon ink.

I trimmed off a bit from the bottom of my stenciled panel. I added an orange mat to my 4 1/2″ square and the pink and orange cardstock to my bellyband. I also added a bright pink ribbon over my bellyband.

Next, I created the sentiment frame. I die cut the label using the Spellbinders Fancy Tags dies out of white cardstock. I inked the tag with Picked Raspberry and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks. I then stamped the sentiment in Grape Jelly Memento Ink and then the decorative elements in Rip Persimmon.

I adhered this to my card front and added the gems. I also added the bright pink flower.

I then created my card base and added my card front. I then added the Stickles accents to four elements using Orange Peel and Fruit Punch. This little card is for my daughter’s assistant teacher whose birthday is today. I hope she likes it, as I had a wonderful time creating it. The pink gems are from TCP and again I had trouble getting them to stick, so I added a little regular glue to get them to stick. I’d just toss them but I love the colors, so I just have to remember that I have to glue them on.

Barbie Inspired Birthday Card

Hi!

As I mentioned we went to another birthday party last weekend and the theme was Barbie. The party even featured a visit from Barbie herself. I made card to complement the Barbie theme. I think that this Barbie Birthday Card has a cute vintage feel.

Barbie-3

I did a little internet search and found a silhouette of Barbie that I traced in my Silhouette Software. The frame is a shape I purchase from the Silhouette Design Store here. I cut the head silhouette and frame out of glittery black cardstock. I was really surprised how well my Cameo cut through the glitter cardstock. Other then making a trail of glitter everywhere, it was really easy. Next I cut the center in white.

I cut the name out of pink cardstock using the font Dollie. You can download this font here. I used a DP from SEI for the background and glued all of my pieces together. Once I had the name adhered to the frame I added Stickles in Glam Pink.

Once everything was dry I added the Prima flower and pearl adhesive. I then added the pink gems from Hero Arts at the top. I apologize for not getting more photos of these but, as usual, I was running a tiny bit late and just barely had time to let the card dry before it headed out the door.

I am hoping to get back to making more videos soon. There has just been so very much going on and they do take awhile. I have also been trying to decide the direction to take my blog and crafting in general. I would really love to have this blog support itself as I love what I do here and creating is a huge part of my life. So, you may see a few changes to the site in the months to come to help my little home on the web grow.

I have just past one year of blogging and I wrote 144 post in that first year and I thank each and everyone of you for visiting my page.

 

Chase Your Dreams in Pink & Green

Hi-ya!

My card for today will be entered into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week’s challenge is Stamp and Punch/Die Cut. I used the WPlus9 Dream Believer/Dream Catcher dies and stamp set again. I decided to go with a non-traditional color scheme and I attempted my first Bokeh Background.

I feel like this card is very different from the others I have made using this set but I really do like it. I might consider making it again in more traditional colors.

To start, I applied Distress Ink directly to a piece of white card stock. I used Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress Inks applied with an Ink Blending Tool. Once that had dried I added the white circles with Whisper White Craft Ink from Stampin’ Up.

Chase Your Dreams-2
Dream Catcher Card in Pink & Green

I created a basic stencil for the circles by using my Fiskars Circle Cutter and cutting three different sizes of circle out of a scrap of card stock. I then placed the stencil where I wanted and sponged on the white ink. I set the background aside to dry. I think that I have mentioned that I am notorious for trying to hurry the process and work on wet project instead of letting them dry. This causes me lots of “Make it Work” moments. However, I was able to subvert my true nature and actually waited before working on the background.

While I was waiting for the background to dry I stared to work on the dream catcher and die cut feathers. For the dream catcher, I sponged on Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint. The outer circle of the dream catcher was slightly darker then the inner strings.

Next, I die cut the small feather shape and stamped the feather in Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I then lightly sponged over the feathers with Worn Lipstick. By this time the background was pretty dry and I stamped the same feather down the left edge using Worn Lipstick Ink.

I then added the sentiment in Peeled Paint Distress Ink in the lower left-hand corner. I adhered the dream catcher using a Zig 2-Way Glue pen. To give dimension to the die cut feathers I rubbed them on the edge of my desk. The same way you would flatten a dollar bill that a vending machine won’t take. This gave the feathers a wave. I placed a foam adhesive circle under the portion that was “up” and flat adhesive under the “down” part of each feather. My hope is that the feathers would stay like this even through mailing.

Per usual, I looked at my card and decided that it needed more bling. I added Stickles on the feathers and hoop of the dream catcher and then Citron colored adhesive gems on the “strings” of the dream catcher and also on the background.

Above you can see a close-up of the dream catcher and the glitter on the feathers. On the feathers I squeezed the Stickles on my craft mat and then picked some up on my finger to apply a light coat of glitter. I also added a few dots of white ink using my Gelly Roll pen around the feathers.

Sentiment Masking – Feather Finery

Good Morning!

I have two cards for you this morning. These will be going into this week’s Make It Monday Challenge #221 from Papertrey Ink. This week’s challenge is Masking Sentiments.

For the first card I went with blues. I stamped my sentiments in Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I then punched out an oval shape from copy paper. I covered the “Birds of a Feather” sentiment and began stamping the feathers over and around.

I used Cool Caribbean and Temping Turquoise inks from Stampin’ Up to stamp the small and medium feathers from the Feather Finery stamp set by Papertrey Ink. I used Faded Jeans to stamp the small circles that I heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. I added clear adhesive gems from Hero Arts. I then used a Taken with Teal marker from Stampin’ Up to trace around my mask to give the sentiment more pop. I know tracing around a mask seems really easy but it was way harder then I was expecting.

The pink card was created in much the same way but using Pretty in Pink, Positively Pink and Pink Passion inks from Stampin’ Up. The sentiment definition was created with a Pretty In Pink marker. I did not use heat embossing on this card as the pinks were pretty intense.  I stamped the little circle in different shades of pink versus one shade on the blue card.

The stamped image was mounted to a piece of Pink Passion card stock. On the inside of the card I stamped the coordinating sentiment “about your big news.”

On both cards I stamped the feathers first and then lightly stamped the coordinating dots in the same color over.  This is a very fun stamp set and I am glad that I decided to use it for this challenge.

Another thing that I really liked about this card was that all the stamping was done on a single sheet which would make mailing a little easier.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love an over the top card but they can be hard or expensive to mail. These worked up pretty quickly and you could easily use any color combo.

Pink Zebra Birthday Card

Today’s card is for a very special little girl. I really enjoyed breaking out the cute dies and Stickles. I went with a circle shaped card just for something a little different. As always, I really appreciate you taking time to visit my little blog.

Circle Card with Glitter Zebra

This card has only one stamped element and that is the sentiment inside. I started this card by die cutting the zebra out of white and pink card stock. I glued my pink elements to the white base and added Cotton Candy Stickles. I cut the eyes and nose out of black card stock. For the nose I added Liquid Pearls in Onxy Pearl.

I added the white eye highlights with a Gelly Roll pen. I cut the card base using my Silhouette Cameo. I made two 5″ circles and used the Weld Feature to make them one piece. I cut two circle at 4.7″ for the background and inner card. Next I cut the blue sky and grass shapes.

I cut the name using the QuicKutz Rockstar Alphabet dies using my Epic 6 machine and added more Cotton Candy Stickles.

I glued my background down and added the zebra. I next glued the flowers from Prima and then added the adhesive pearls from Hero Arts for the center of each flower.

Butterfly Wall Art

Recently I had  a request for an card-inspired art piece. Today’s project will be hung in a little girl’s bedroom. Like many little girls, including mine, she is into pink and purple.

Framed butterfly art

I was originally going to create the background with Gelatos but I was waiting on the mail and got impatient so the background was created using dye ink. I first applied a layer of Gesso over the card stock, allowed that to dry and applied a second coat to add more texture. I applied the inks with a sponge.  I used images from French Foliage and Elementary Elegance. The background was created by stamping with ink and some images were heat embossed with clear embossing powder. There is no real process for creating an image like this and I find that I just keep working until I like it. Once I was happy I sprayed the background with Perfect Pearls and then dabbed with a paper towel. Since there is a layer of Gesso the paper towel will pull up some of the ink.

Rings cut with Silhouette Cameo

I create the interlocking circle in my Silhouette software and cut them out of teal cardstock. I tore off an edge of my card stock and layered that over my rings.

Pink & Purple Butterfly-4

I stamped the butterfly with black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then colored the butterfly by watercoloring the image with the inks used in the background. I then mounted that onto another sheet of white cardstock. The last step was adding the image to the frame.

Pink & Purple Butterfly-5

 

Pink & Purple Butterfly-6I purchase this frame at Michaels. It is 5×7 frame with a double mat for a 4×6 opening. There is a layer of foam between the double mats so the butterfly has room to be more three-dimensional.

Girly Graduation Pop-Up Box Card

Hi-Ya!

Today’s card is my first attempt at a Pop-Up Box card. I am so happy with the card and it was well received. This was a graduation card for a simply wonderful young woman. This was much easier then I was thinking and I found myself wondering why I didn’t make these sooner. I have another similar box underway with the same paper. I have horded this stunning Bo-Bunny paper for ages. I am so glad to have found a project for it. As I was running a little late with the card, as in I had to let it dry on the way to the party, the photos are not the best but, you get the idea.

Pop-Up Box Card-1

I made the box base following the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and created the base using Basic Black 12×12 cardstock from Stampin’ Up. I then cut the 12×12 paper from Bo Bunny called Beau Jardin Blush for each panel. The DP panels are .25 smaller then the side so you get the layered look. There are two side of the paper and the dark side I used on the outer side and the light side was used on the inner panels. I mounted the inner panels to Rose Red cardstock from Stampin’ Up.

The accents were created using my Silhouette Cameo out of Basic Black and Rose Red cardstock. Each element is mounted on a piece of acetate using Zots. On the back panel I used Prima Flowers and stamped the sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages by Papertrey Ink.

Side View of the Pop-Up Box Card
Side View of the Pop-Up Box Card

I used a tiny envelope from Hero Arts to hold the cash and used a large Zot to adhere it to the front of the box. Normally I would add Stickles to each element, allow them to dry and then adhere them to the box but I was running late so I stuck everything down and very carefully added the various colors of Stickles. It actually worked out really well,  all things considered.

Pop-Up Box Card-4This card fit a 6×9 envelope which I naturally assumed I had in my “Envelope” drawer but I had nothing large enough. I ran down to our basement and dug through my wrapping supplies until I found a box of old Christmas cards. I found a set that was the same size and grabbed an envelope.
