Love

Hey Y'all!!!  Do you have a stash of some leftover retired paper that you just love?  Me too!  Decided to use some on this beautiful card.  Cut the layers with Whimsy Stamps Extreme Postage dies and finished it off using the Glimmer Hot Foil Machine from Spellbinders.  Love is all that matters, right?  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

I started by creating a card base from Stampin' UP!'s ‘Calypso Coral‘ card stock.  The paper size is 8.5 x 5.5, scored on the long edge at 4.25.  Whether you use a scoring board or not, it helps to use your bone folder on the fold to make it crisp.  I created several layers of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Calypso Coral‘ and ‘Petal Pink‘ card stock using Whimsy Stamp's ‘Extreme Postage‘ Dies.  I had some retired card stock that matched the two perfectly and had the added fun of some gold.  Cut some with the ‘Extreme Postage‘ dies too.  What fun those postage stamp dies are!

 

Spellbinders has the most fun Glimmer Hot Foil Machine.  Lots of beautiful dies to go with it.  I chose the ‘Copperplate Script Love'. Possibilities are endless.

 

 

Finished it with a flower from Little Birdie and a little piece of gold mesh ribbon.  Love always saves the day!

Thanks

Hey Y'all!!!  I'm so excited to be on the Make The Cards Challenge Design Team!  We'd LOVE you to be part of the weekly challenges too!  Make the Cards Challenge is a place for all card makers to take part in various card creation challenges.  It is a weekly challenge blog to get those creative juices flowing. You’ll also be challenged to use your supplies differently or think of innovative ways to create cards. New challenges are published weekly at 9 a.m. on Monday.  Join the fun HERE.  Here's my Design Team card for Challenge #1.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

The card base is made from ‘Mint Macaron‘ card stock from Stampin' UP!.  I cut a piece of La-La Land Crafts beautiful ‘White Textured‘ card stock for the first layer.  Using double sided tape and ‘Gold Foil‘ card stock from Stampin' UP! I created diagonal lines of gold across the white paper.

 

I cut three squares from the ‘Gold Foil‘ paper and three smaller squares from La-La Land Crafts ‘Golden Sunset' paper.  Glued one piece of the Golden Sunset paper to one piece of the Gold Foil.  Cut a small piece of the Gold Foil and layered it across the white card base about an inch from the bottom.  Aligned the three squares with the bottom right corner together and used double sided tape to glue them to the card base.

 

 

I used one of the La-La Land Crafts ‘Pierced Scallop Circles‘ dies to create a single scalloped circle from Stampin' UP!'s ‘Calypso Coral‘.  Placed Stampin' UP! gold metallic pearls in the middle of each scallop.  Cut the three layers of Whimsy Stamps ‘Thanks Word and Shadow‘ die out of ‘Mint Macaron‘, ‘Basic White‘ and ‘Gold Foil‘ from  Stampin' UP!.  How cute!

Sweet Friend

Hey Y'all!!!  Lovers shouldn't be the only ones that get a little attention on Valentine's Day!  Need to show those girlfriends a little love.  I love these Word dies from Whimsy Stamps.  Love the layers and all the detail!  And of course you know I love bright colors and glittery.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

I cut a piece of white card stock and inked it up using Distress Oxide Inks: Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries graduating the colors down the page from the lightest to the darkest.  Love the ‘Cotton Tail Blending Brushes‘ from The Rabbit Hole Designs.  So smooth and effortless for Distress Oxide Inks.  Next I used the ‘Slimline Hearts‘ Die from Whimsy Stamps to create a stencil on another piece of white card stock.  Taped the stencil down on top of the Oxide Inked paper and used Glitz Glitter Iridescent Gel just like you would use paint or any other medium to create a stenciled look. Love the glitter!

 

 

Cut a piece of ‘Basic White‘ card stock from Stampin' UP! using the ‘Slimline Birthday Scallops‘ die from Whimsy. Used double sided tape to stick the scalloped frame down around the glittery hearts.

 

The card base is ‘Magenta Madness‘ from Stampin' UP!  Beautiful pink color, don't you think?  The words sweet & friend are cut using the ‘Sweet Word & Shadow‘ and ‘Friend Word & Shadow‘ dies from Whimsy.  They are cut from Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘, ‘Flirty Flamingo‘ and ‘Magenta Madness‘ card stocks.

 

 

Show those girlfriends the love!

Tea Party

Hey Y'all!!!  Anybody want to have a tea party?  I've made the cutest teacups just for us, complete with saucers, spoons and little tea cookies!  How fun!  The Hug In A Mug and Cozy Cups are all from The Greetery.  What's your favorite flavor of tea?  Mine's coffee flavored.  LOL.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

I started by using The Greetery's ‘Hug In A Mug‘ Die set, ‘Hug In A Mug Saucer‘ die ‘Cozy Cup‘ die to create the cups, saucers, spoons, coffee and steam.  Cut the mugs from ‘Daffodil Delight‘, ‘Magenta Madness‘ and ‘Granny Apple Green‘ Stampin' UP! card stock.

I used the ‘Retro Petals Turnabout' stencil from Concord and 9th to create the cute little diamonds all over the teacups.  The diamond colors are Distress Oxide Salty Ocean, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry.  Used a white gel pen to put a dot right in the center of each.  Wrapped the top edge of the teacup in a coordinating piece of card stock and used the white gel pen to create three polkadots on each side.

The cookies were baked from The Greetery's “Hug In A Mug Sweet Treats‘ Die.  Couldn't you just pop  them right in your mouth.  Filled them with modeling paste to give them that some fluffy filling.  Aren't they just so freakin' cute?!?  The sentiments and design in the tea are from The Greetery's ‘Cozy Cup‘ stamp set.  How fun and they are already curved perfectly to fit on the saucers!

 

What's your favorite flavor of tea?

It’s Coffee Time

Hey Y'all!!!  It's COFFEE time and I'm addicted!!!  Love these dies from La-La Land Crafts.  You can't really see it but the clock is set to 5:00 just in case you need a little Bailey's or something stronger than coffee.  It's 5:00 somewhere, right?  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

These dies from La-La Land Crafts are just the most fun!  I started by cutting out all the pieces.  The card stock is ‘Crushed Curry‘ and ‘Coastal Cabana‘ from Stampin' UP!.  The beautiful pattern paper is ‘Spring Has Sprung‘ from La-La Land Crafts.

 

Here are the dies from La-La Land Crafts I used:

Coffee Cup Die – Coastal Cabana & Spring Has Sprung

Coffee Word Die – Coastal Cabana

Large Clock Die – Crushed Curry

Scalloped Rectangle Die – Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry & Spring Has Sprung

 

Layered the Scalloped Rectangle pieces on top of the base and used foam tape to pop up the clock, coffee cup and coffee word.  Tied a beautiful piece of Coastal Cabana satin ribbon around the bottom of the card.

 

 

Enjoy your coffee, or whatever you're drinking!

You Make Life Pop

Hey Y'all!!!  I'm so thrilled to be a part of the 2021 Scrappy Tails Crafts Design Team.  Sabrina Leavell has created some absolutely beautiful stamps and dies!  Today I'm using the beautiful Popping Poppies stamp set.  Did you know that the red poppy is a symbol of both Remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.  I certainly am counting on the peaceful future part.  It certain POPS and makes a beautiful shaker card.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

 

I started by coloring the Poppies from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Popping Poppies‘ stamp set. ‘Popping Poppies‘ has a matching die set too!

 

COPIC MARKERS:

• Poppies (R89, R39, R37, R35, R14, YR15)

• Leaves (YG67, YG17, YG03)

• White Gel Pen

 

The card base is black card stock, layered with white and a piece of printed paper covered with hearts.  I scalloped the edges of the white layer to give it a little more festive look.  The ‘Popping Poppies‘ die normally retains the solid center of the heart.  I decided to cut it out tracing the edge with an xacto knife in order to make a shaker card.  How fun!  Filled the shaker card with some sparkly goodies.  You know I LOVE anything that sparkles and glitters!

You can find the bundle HERE!

 

 

Cut an acetate sheet with the heart in the  ‘Popping Poppies‘ die and glued it to the backside of the colored heart and poppies.  Used foam tape to pop up the top of the shaker.  Once the heart was attached to the card, I added some extra poppies.  Popped them up for a little more fun.  Just couldn't resist the sentiment.  “You Make Life POP”.  So true!  Trimmed part of the sentiment into a banner and used a scalloped punch to cut out the word ‘POP'.

May Your Days Be Beary & Bright

Hey Y'all!!!  I think I'm obsessed with this little box.  Tamara created it as part of the '12 Days of Christmas' from La-La Land.  And I love the color pink!  I filled it with M&M's for a friend.  What fun!  The polar bear is just waiting for some candy himself.  Details for this card are below.  Will have the instructions and maybe a video posted over the weekend.  Enjoy!!

Winter Weekender

Hey Y'all!!!  Where would you go for the weekend in the winter?  I'd definitely be going south!!  And I'd be carrying my Weekender Handbag from Concord & 9th in collaboration with Becky Roberts of Inking Idaho.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

I used the ‘Weekender Handbag‘ Die from Concord & 9th to cut out the handbag shapes from Whimsy Stamps ‘Blurry Flurries‘ printed paper.  Love this winter paper.  So many beautiful designs.  Inked up some white paper with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass to create the corner pieces, straps and sides.  Cut the accent pieces: heart, lock and straps from Stampin' UP! ‘Flirty Flamingo‘.

 

 

These fun sunglasses are created with the ‘Bright Eyes‘ Dies from Concord & 9th.  Oh how cute!!!  So easy to cut and put together.  I matched the glass frame color to the ‘Flirty Flamingo‘ accent heart and made sure the lenses were shiny silver to keep the sun out.

 

Finished it off with some little oak feet to protect the bottom.  Has a magnetic clasp.

Stay warm!!!
