Hello Sunshine...

Hello Blog friends... today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE and I am getting crafty with the June release. I have created this card using...

I started with die cutting all the pieces on the colors that I needed to create this fun Sun, Rainbow, Cloud scene. This Rainbow Friend die set is amazing. Once I had all the colors cut out I started to adhere them together using Pink & Main EZ Squeeze Craft Glue. I set this aside so I can create my background.

I used my handy dandy Pink & Main Ergonomic Blending Brush and the Random Dots stencil for my background. I just stenciled directly onto my card base. Then I adhered the Rainbow background to the card using foam adhesives.

Finishing with die cutting the new Sunshine Word out of white and colored cardstock. I adhered it all together and added a little white gel pen on the black part of the sentiment. I also added the Sunshine Word sentiment to my card using foam adhesives.

I always love a good rainbow card. The Rainbow belongs to God!!! It is a promise from God.. creator of ALL. amen

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a Blessed day!

4th of July...

Well hello blog friends... Can you believe we are almost in July and will be celebrating the 4th of July. Do you do fireworks? We living in a neighborhood that has a big block party so we will enjoy the fireworks they buy.. LOL They sure are expensive and I cant even image now with inflation these days. 

Well let's get to this card that I created. I was inspired by the holiday coming up, so I created this card using Taylored Expressions...

  • Starstruck (stamp/stencil/die) combo
  • Full Circle Patriotic stamp set
  • On the Block Happy die
  • Lawn Fawn inks (Fish Tank and Lobster)

I started with stamping and heat embossing the big white stars.  Then I used the coordinating stencils for all the other stars and sparkles. I added a little white gel pen  here and there. This helps highlight the images.

I stamped the larger stars again on some designer paper and then cut only the inner part so I can adhere them in the center of the heat embossed stars. 

Next I die cut the On the Block Happy die and added to my card using foam squares. I also added a bit of white gel pen.

Finishing up with stamped the Happy 4th of July sentiment on a white die cut sentiment flag. I also added this to the card using foam adhesives. 

That is all for today.
They are finishing my roof today... I am looking forward to peace and quiet.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a fantastic day!

Sky's The Limit...

Tuesday... Tuesday.. it feels like Monday still. We are having a new roof put on our home so it has been very noisy, so I would say it is a great time to craft and with the TV volume blasting. LOL So needless to say I just finished this Lawn Fawn card. I mixed a little of the oldies with the new. This card was created using....

Lawn Fawn:
  • Sunny Skies stamp set
  • Blue Skies stamp set
  • Lots of Stars background stencil
  • LF inks (Sunflower, Mermaid, Ballet Slippers and Grape Soda)
  • All The Dots paper pad

I started with this fun Lots of Stars Background stencil. I used the LF inks listed above and just mixed them up. I stenciled directly onto my card base.

I stamped out the images many times, as you can see I did a little paper piecing with the new All The Dots paper pad. I have not paper pieced in a long time. Lots of cutting but I really like how they came out... What do you think?

I also stamped out the clouds and this sweet bird. Now that all the images are ready to adhere I added them to my card using liquid glue and foam tape. It is always good to have a little dimension. 

To finished the card I stamped the sentiment directly onto my card base and then I added a little white gel pen on some of the stars. 

That is all for today. I am sure I will have more to share tomorrow. With all this noise I have to focus on something. LOL

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a wonderful day!

Sending Waves...

Happy Saturday... it is my Pink & Main day, I am on the P&M blog HERE.  I am getting crafty with the new release. I have created this card using the new Pink & Main....

I started with the Bubbly Waves stencil and the new Middle School cardstock. I added the Embossing ink just by pressing the ink pad down on the stencil. The ink pad sponge is soft so the ink transfers very easily. I removed the stencil and sprinkled the new Sea Glass embossing powder and then heated up so set the embossing powder. Don't you love all the sparkle? The embossing powder has glitter in it.

I adhered the background to my card base. If you noticed I have trimmed it down slightly so it had a white edge. This helps highlight the background a bit more.

I then stamped these adorable Waves of Cheer images and die cut using the coordinating dies. I then added those images to my card using foam adhesives.

Finishing up with stamping the sentiment, this is also included in the Waves of Cheer stamp set. We can't forget these new Ahoy Enamel Dots. I added a few here and there.

Make sure to check out the entire release on the Pink & Main online store HERE. It is full of summer fun.

Thank you for stopping by.
Have an awesome weekend!

Happy Thursday blog friends.. Today I am on the Ink Blog Shop blog HERE and I am getting crafty with...

I started with cutting my card base on kraft 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 stamping this fun border from the Decorative Borders stamp set. I used my Misti to stamp with. This helps me to keep my borders straight. I tend to stamp crooked if I free hand it. The Misti is my friend when card making.

I stamped the border 4 times. I started with the center and finished with the top and bottom. I did not line them up as I am not a line up type of crafter. Of course I need to add a little color, so I inked the centers with Copic Sketch markers (YG23, YG21, BG34, BG32, V22 and V20.

Finishing up with stamping these two sentiments from the Simple Sayings stamp set. I also thought that I need some bling on the card so I added some pretty pearls by adhering them using Bearly Arts Precision glue.

A simple congratulations card that for sure will bring a smile. Paired up with a colorful Ink Blot Shop Painted Sunset Envelope.
