Collab Hop with Scrappy Tails & Pear Blossom – Magical!

 

Hey Y'all!!!  Welcome to the Scrappy Tails and Pear Blossom Press Collab Hop! Today, we’re sharing lots of whimsical cards that will really brighten your day. They feature dreamy new stamps and dies from Scrappy Tails, and with a little help from Pear Blossom Press, they all light up!  Be sure to hop along with us for lots of inspiration; our designers have come up with some stunning cards…  You'll find links to the next designer in the Hop farther down in my blog post.

 

Guess what happens when you ‘PRESS HERE”???

The windows and door light up.  How cool is that and so easy to do.

 

 

This Magical card was created using Scrappy Tails Crafts stamp sets, dies and Pear Blossom Presses EZ-Light.

 

You'll find all the specifics in the PDF of my ingredients below but I started with the absolutely cool ‘Slimline Birdhouse Pop Up‘ and ‘Slimline Fairy House Add-on‘ dies from Scrappy Tails Crafts.

 

 

Once I had created the beautiful fairy house, I added the beautiful fairy to welcome you, the mushrooms and cute frog from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Fairy Friends‘ stamp set.

The background features clouds and grass using the ‘Slimline Everyday Borders II‘ dies.

 

 

Before I attached the Fairy House to the beautiful background I attached the Pear Blossom Press ‘EZ-Lights'.  So FUN!!!

Just attached them with tape, glue or whatever adhesive is your favorite.  Attach the battery and button close to the edge of the card and add your own ‘Press Here' button.  Make sure you leave enough room for foam tape to pop the house up and leave room for the lights and battery.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Hey Y'all!!!  So excited to showcase another a beautiful project as part of the Design Team for Scrappy Tails Crafts. To say I'm obsessed with this book die set would be an understatement.  It comes with everything you need to make a beautiful gift.  This particular book closes with a magnet.  How easy and fun!  And it's filled with beautiful fairies flying around by the light of the moon!  This is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

What would you imagine a book from William Shakespeare to look like?  I imagine purple and gold.  Can't you just see this beautiful gold book up on a bookshelf?  Something royalty might have.

 

Even better it's filled with beautiful fairies flying around by the light of the moon!

 

You'll find all the specifics in the PDF of my ingredients below but I started with this absolutely COOL ‘A7 Book Pop Up' Die set from Scrappy Tails Crafts.

 

 

 

All the stamp & dies I used are from Scrappy Tails Crafts including the beautiful sentiments inside the book.

Make The Cards Challenge Week #21 – Sketch Challenge

Hey Y'all!!!  I'm back with the Make The Cards Challenge Week #21.  This week we are featuring a sketch challenge.  I'm obsessed with Alcohol Ink and been working on backgrounds to use.  This beautiful purple, pink & copper background worked great for a birthday card using Whimsy Stamps Slimline Connected Bubbles and Word dies.  This beautiful card is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

I started by creating the beautiful background with Alcohol Inks.  So much fun!

 

The card base is Stampin' UP!'s ‘Gorgeous Grape‘ card stock.

Use your favorite adhesive to glue the alcohol ink background directly onto the card base.

 

I used the ‘Slimline Connected Bubbles‘ die from Whimsy Stamps to cut the fun bubbles layer out of a piece of retired gold paper.

 

The sentiments are from Whimsy Stamps ‘Happy‘ Large Word Die and ‘Birthday‘ Word & Shadow Die.  Used the same retired gold and Stampin' UP!'s ‘Gorgeous Grape‘ card stock.  Glued the Happy sentiment to the gold card stock and popped them both up with Foam Tape.

 

Perfect Happy Birthday card for someone special!

Paper Sweeties May 2021 New Release Rewind! – Keep Calm and Gnome On!

Hey Y'all!!!  Welcome to Paper Sweeties!!!  It's our New Release Rewind!!!!!  I LOVE the new Keep Calm and Gnome On stamp set from Paper Sweeties.  And the matching sweet cuts.  I mean who isn't in love with cute little gnomes?  And now this cute Gnomebug?  You'll find links to the sneak peeks from other members of the design team below as well as all the details for this card.

 

 

I LOVE the ‘Keep Calm and Gnome On‘ stamp set from Paper Sweeties.  And the matching sweet cuts.  I mean who isn't in love with cute little gnomes?  And now this cute Gnomebug?

 

 

I colored the fun little ‘Gnomebug' and love banner with copic markers to to match the colorful background.  It is a Love Bug after all.

 

COPIC MARKERS:

• Gnomebug (B97, B95, B93, YG63, R27, E57, E55, E53)

• Love (B97, B95, B93, R27)

 

I cut different width pieces of the ‘Crafting With My Gnomies Collection Pack‘ paper pack and popped them up with foam tape to make a cute and colorful background.

 

 

It is a ‘Love Bug' after all, even when it's filled with Gnomes, so I created a banner using Paper Sweeties ‘Craftin' With My Gnomies‘ stamp set and matching sweet set.

 

Don't you love riding around with YOUR gnomies?  I wish I had a Gnome Bug!

Paper Sweeties May 2021 New Release Party – Keep Calm and Gnome On!

Hey Y'all!!!  Welcome to Paper Sweeties!!!  It's our Release Party!!!!!  Funny thing happened on the way to this card.  When I saw the sheet of stickers in the Crafting With My Gnomies 12 x 12 Collection pack (on particular the sentiment on this card) and the new gnomebug in the Keep Calm and Gnome On stamp set I immediately had a vision of Karen Letchworth and myself traveling to a crop at Paper Sweeties.  Tools flying everywhere.  The sentiment is correct…  What happens at the crop, stays at the crop!  You'll find links to the sneak peeks from other members of the design team below as well as all the details for this card.

 

 

I started by stamping and cutting out the new Gnome car from Paper Sweeties new ‘Keep Calm & Gnome On‘ stamp set.

 

 

I cut two fun layers from the ‘Crafting With My Gnomies Collection Pack‘ paper pack.  How cute.

 

 

The ‘Crafting With My Gnomies‘ Collection Pack has a fun full sheet of the coolest stickers.  Sentiments.  Crafting stickers.  All sorts of things.  I thought it would be fun to use the stickers to finish out the card.

 

Don't you love craftin' with YOUR gnomies?

I started by stamping and cutting out the new Gnome car from Paper Sweeties new ‘Keep Calm & Gnome On‘ stamp set.

 

I made a beautiful paper frame from Paper Sweeties ‘Crafting With My Gnomies Collection Pack‘ paper pack and used some pretty pink seam binding for the hanger.  How cute.

 

 

Paper Sweeties has beautiful sweet cuts.  Great edges, clean finishes.  I used the ‘Oval Scallop Frames‘ sweet cuts to cut a piece of the ‘Crafting With My Gnomies‘ Collection Pack for the oval frame.  I used a piece of white card stock cut the center of the ‘Oval Scallop Frames‘ sweet cuts.   Stamped the fun sentiment from Paper Sweeties new ‘Keep Calm & Gnome On‘ stamp set.
