Joy...


Today I am on the ScrapbookPal blog HERE and I am sharing two cards with you today featuring the new Spellbinders Stitched Joy and Stitched Ornament dies. I know we all have Christmas on the brain and these dies are amazing for creating gorgeous Christmas cards, so let’s get started.


Create a card from card-stock (A2) using white card-stock.

I started with die cutting both of these amazing dies on white cardstock and then picked out some of my favorite colors that I like to create with for Christmas. I am a little non-tradition when it comes to color combos for Christmas. The stitching takes a little while but so worth it when it is completed.

I then cut a piece of white cardstock A2 size and embossed it using Spellbinders Dazzling Dots embossing folder. I then adhered it to my card base and added the stitched Joy using Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares. The dimension is needed because of the stitching behind the die cut.

I also added a strip of gold cardstock at the top and bottom also using Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue.


You are not done yet... let’s finish the Stitched Ornament.

Pick more of that colorful embroidery string and using a needle stitched this gorgeous ornament.

Cut another A2 size piece of cardstock, this time on a piece of colored cardstock and emboss it with the Dazzling Dots embossing folder. Then adhere it to your card base using Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue.

Added the stitched Ornament to your card also using Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares. Die cut the leaves twice, once one white and once on silver glitter cardstock. Add them to your card using Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue and finish with adding some Burlap string.

Two beautiful Christmas cards and they are full of stitching fun. Get colorful with your Christmas cards and have fun creating them.

Simply Amazing...


Hello blog friends... I hope you all are having an awesome day today. I am starting August with butterflies.  Today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE and I have created this card using....

Today I have for you another very simple card. Hard to believe with how beautiful these butterflies are... right. Well Pink & Main came out with this two stencil Betty's Butterflies. All you need to do is blend your ink to create these beauties. 

I started with the first stencil which is the solid part of the butterfly. You will want to use a lighter ink color then when you use the second stencil that pattern will really stand out. But really just think of the possibilities. So many fun color combos you can use. 

I added the second stencil and ink but left the stencil on and sprinkled a little bit of Copic Opaque. By leaving the stencil on the Copic opaque will only go where the stenciled area is. Let dry and repeat process. 

Finishing up with stamping my sentiment on a piece of Pink & Main new card-stock and die cutting using the coordinating dies. I cut the banner again another color and overlapped them. Leaving a hint of the back color. I added the sentiment flag using foam adhesives to give the card a little dimension. 

That is all for today.... see don't you think that is a simple card to create? I love this new Betty's Butterflies stencil.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a fantastic day!

Happy Day...


Happy Thursday blog friends.. today I am on the ScrapbookPal Instagram page HERE. I am feeling Happy with this fun Lawn Fawn Zesty Lemon die. I could not wait to get crafty with it. 

I started with an A2 card base on white cardstock. I cut a piece of colored cardstock and adhered it to the base of my card. I set that aside and then die cut the Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop die on kraft cardstock. I added some Bearly Arts Precision Craft Glue to the back and centered to my card base.


Now for those fun happy fruit dies. I die cut the Lawn Fawn Zesty Lemon die three times on misc. cardstock and adhered the backs to the fronts. One of the lemons I die cut this cute happy face and added some black cardstock behind so you can see the cute eyes and sweet smile. I then die cut the rosy cheeks and adhered them.

We are not done die cutting... now die cut a few of the leaves on some green cardstock, one of the stems on brown cardstock and don’t forget about that adorable little flower. Now time to add all these cute image to your card. I centered the lemons and used some Tombo 3D Foam Tape only on the center lemon, the other I used Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue.

Finishing up with stamping the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Beary Rainy Day stamp set on some colored cardstock. I trimmed the sentiment and added it to the card also using Tombo 3D Foam Tape.

Supplies:
- Lawn Fawn: Zesty Lemon dies
- Lawn Fawn: Quilted Backdrop die

Hooray...


Hello hello blog friends... Today I am on the Ink Blog Shop blog HERE and I am sharing a card that has a lot to say. To me this is a card you send someone just because. For sure to bring a smile. I created this card using Ink Blot Shop…
Stencils are so universal and always fun to ink up, so let’s get started. 

I started with cutting my card base on white cardstock. I always fold my cards using a bone folder so I get a clean straight fold. This card is measured at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

I started with the Superhero Burst stencils and various inks. At first I was going to fill the card with these cool Superhero Burst but after inking up the first three I knew exactly where I was going with the design of this card. Don’t you just love when it all comes together like that?

Now using the Pixel Grid stencil only at the lower half I added the design using the same color combo.

The background is ready for those fun sentiments. I wanted it to be wild and fun and well I think I succeeded. What do you think?

I then stamped this adorable Winging It image and colored using Copic Sketch markers R81, Y32, Y35, E42, E41 and B01. I fussy cut the image and added it to my card using foam adhesives.

Finishing up with a little bling. I added three Ocean Breeze Jewels. This card perfectly matches up with the colorful and fun Rainbow Splatter Paint envelopes.

This card was very simple to create and I got to use multiple sets from the Ink Blot Shop collection.

Thanks for stopping by. 
Have a colorful and fun day.

Wildflowers...


 WOW, where did the month go? Hard to believe it is July 30th. Time sure does fly when you're having fun. LOL Today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE and I am getting crafty with....


Lots of pretty wild flowers and perfect for stamping and don't be shy you can let them overlay. I started with stamping all these pretty wildflowers using various inks. I just stamped away and did not pay much attention to if they stamped over each other. That's the fun part. So wild and make it look like a field of wildflowers.

I stamped the sentiment from the older set Wildflowers directly onto the card but then stamped the Wildflowers sentiments on some of Pink & Main Lakeside cardstock and die cut using the coordinating dies.

I added the Wildflowers sentiment using foam adhesives, to give it a little dimension.

A very simple card with lots of fun and colorful stamping.

That is all for today.
Enjoy these last two days of July.... August here we come.

Have a wonderful day!
