Share Joy...

Happy April... This card is all about spring and Sharing Joy. I used some left over dies cuts to create this card.. do you remember my St. Patricks Day card? Well this is the left over rainbows. So let's get started.

Card designed using..
  • Taylored Expressions: Over the Rainbow die
  • Taylored Expressions: Share Joy stamp
  • Taylored Expressions: Heart die

Create card from cardstock A2 size.

Die cut the Over the Rainbow die 4 times on 4 different colors. 

Adhere the rainbow to the card switching up the order of the colors. Start with the side, bottom and other side. 

Stamp the Share Joy stamp set on white cardstock and die cut the heart around it. Die cut the heart 3 more times and adhere them together for dimension. Adhere the heart to the card.

That is it... very simple.

I was just thinking it is April Fools day.. I do not have any fools for you today. I have never been good at that. But I am super happy it is April.

That is all for today.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Have an awesome weekend!

Forever and Always...

It is the end of March.. April here we come. Today I am sharing another card that I designed using some of the product that I received for the Scrapbook & Card Crop & Create Delivered. 

Card designed using Gina K. Designs:
  • Curved Floral Banner Dies
  • Curved Floral Banner Stencils
  • Sweet Sentiments Stamp set
  • Mask and Fillers Stencils

Create card from cardstock A2 size.

Using the Masks and Fillers stencil use the oval stencil in the center with a yellow and green ink. Blend the ink until you are happy with the color. Now add the Oval mask to the top of the blend oval. This protects the oval so you do not add any other colors to it. 

Now blend a red and pink to create your colorful background around the oval. 

Leave the oval mask on and sprinkle a little bit of Copic Opaque mixed with water. Make sure to let dry completely.

Die cut the Curved Floral Banner backer and use the coordinating stencils to add the ink. The stencils line up perfectly so don't worry, it is super easy. 

Die cut the frame of the Curved Floral Banner on black cardstock and adhere to your colorful floral design.  Now add some foam tape on the back and adhere to the card. Make sure you leave room for your sentiment. 

Stamp the sentiment in black ink.

Stamp the rest of the sentiment on white cardstock, trim and adhere to the card. 

Finishing with a few NUVO Crystal Drops Simply White.

If you have always wondered about the Crop & Create event, I can testify that it is an awesome event and well worth the money. You receive lots of product for each class and there are LOTS of classes to take. It is fun and I can't wait until the next one.

That is all for today.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Enjoy the last day of March 2023.

Made Prefect!...

We are at the end of March... where o where did the time go. This month just flew by us.... am I the only one who thinks so? But I love my April month... I am sure you know why. 

Let's get to this card. I am all about the flowers today as we approach April and Spring.. flowers are in the air. 

Today's card was created using The Stamp Market...
  • Jumbo Vintage Bloom stamp/die
  • Just Lovely Kit (stencil only)
  • Inks (Tropic Teal, Breeze, Coastal, Party Pink, Fuchsia and Citrine)

Create card from cardstock A2 size.

Cut a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than the card front and stencil this fun pattern using The Stamp Market inks (listed above). Add foam tape to the back of your colorful background and adhere it to your card base.

Stamp out this gorgeous Jumbo Vintage Bloom on white cardstock and die cut using the coordinating dies.  Add some foam tape to the back and adhere the flower and stem to the card. 

Stamp this sweet sentiment also from the Jumbo Vintage Bloom stamp set on white cardstock. Trim and adhere to the card using foam tape.

Finishing with a little shinny gems from Pink & Main Ballroom gems. 

I have to admit that I should have worn my reading glasses so my sentiment stamped out better. Oh well, that's how it works now.. right? That is how you know it is homemade. LOL 

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a wonderful day!
Enjoy the rest of March.

Heart Smile...

Happy Wednesday blog friends.. This weekend I participated in the Scrapbook & Cards Crop & Create Delivered and it was fantastic. This was my first and for sure will not be my last. The classes were are amazing and the companies that participated were all amazing. So today I am sharing a card that I created using some of the product from the Altenew class. 

Card designed using Altenew:
  • Bold Bouquet stamp set
  • Bold Bouquet Stencil
  • Bold Bouquet Dies (sentiment)

Create card using cardstock A2 size.

Stamp the Bold Bouquet on white cardstock and use the coordinating stencil to add the color. The stencils line up perfectly. I then fussy cut around the image and then sprinkled a little bit of Copic Opaque.

Stamp the Bold Bouquet image again directly onto the card base using black ink.

Add some foam tape to the back of the Bold Bouquet you fussy cut and add it to the card. 

Stamp the sentiment YOU on white cardstock and die cut using the coordinating dies. Die cut again two more times and adhere together. This gives the sentiment more dimension. Add it to the card.

Stamp the smaller sentiment, trim down and adhere to the card. 

Finishing with a few NUVO Crystal drops Ebony Black. 

I don't know when these will be released because it was exclusive to the event. 
But maybe keep an eye out.

That is all for today.
Thank you for stopping by.

 Have a great day!

Today I am sharing two cards that I created using from the TopFlight Stamp online store...

It is all about the bunnies... This card was so fun to create and super easy. Lots of die cutting.

Create card from cardstock A2 size. 

Adhere a piece of striped designer paper to the card base and set aside.

Die cut your bunny and basket out. Using liquid glue assemble the cut bunny together and then the basket. 

Add the basket first to the card using foam adhesives.

Add the bunny to the center of the basket also using foam tape. Lots of dimension. 

Finishing off with this cute sentiment from the AALL & Create Ephemera Die Cuts Tiny Words Color.

Don't you just love these sweet images.... I totally do.

Next up is that cute bunny again but now he is sitting down. There is a few ways to use this Studio Light Creative Craftlab Benjamin Bunny

Create card from cardstock A2 size. 

Adhere a piece of striped designer paper to your card base, but this time trim down the designer paper slightly smaller then the card so it leaves a white trim all the way around.

Die cut all your pieces out for the bunny and this fun cocoa mug. 

Assemble the bunny together using liquid glue and then the cocoa mug. 

After I assembled the cocoa mug I added some of those fun stars from the Frida Kahlo Love in the Moon 4x6 Star Stencil. I also sprinkled a little Copic Opaque.

Adhere the mug to the right of the card using foam tape for dimension. 

Adhere the cute bunny on the left side of the mug also using foam tape, but double up so it is slightly higher than the mug. 

Finishing with another one of those fun sediments from the AALL & Create Ephemera Die Cuts Tiny Words Color

A fun celebration for a dear friend and her amazing company TopFlight Stamps.
