Make The Cards Challenge Week #20 – Encouragement

Hey Y'all!!!  I'm back with the Make The Cards Challenge Week #20.  This week we are featuring a challenge called Encouragement.  What words would you use if you were trying to encourage someone who needed it?  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 coloring the beautiful dragon Dahlia from Whimsy Stamps ‘Unicorn Magic‘ stamp set.  Love her!

 

COPIC MARKERS:

• Dahlia (BG07, BG05, BG13, YR09, YR02, RV14, BV08, BV04, BV02)

• Balloon (Y38, Y18, Y15, Y13)

 

 

The card base is Stampin' UP!'s ‘Bermuda Bay‘ card stock.  I alternated it with Whimsy Stamps ‘Rainbows‘ 6 x 6 paper pack.

 

 

The sentiments are from Whimsy Stamps ‘Rainbows‘ 6 x 6 paper pack.  Believe in the Magic are the perfect words of encouragement.  I stamped them with Stampin' UP!'s ‘Bermuda Bay‘ ink and cut them out with Whimsy Stamps ‘Quick Strips‘ dies.

 

 

I'm lovin' me some Dahlia!  He believes in the magic!

You Make Life Amazing

Hey Y'all!!!  So excited to showcase another a beautiful card as part of the Design Team for Scrappy Tails Crafts.  I'm showcasing one of the new die sets from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Midsummer Night's Dream‘ collection.  Such a beautiful cover plate with the stitched clouds.  Includes plenty of clouds and stars to create a beautiful card.  This is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

 

Check out one of the new dies from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Midsummer Night's Dream‘ collection.

 

 

How beautiful all the pieces are in the ‘A7 Cloud Frame Cover Plate‘.  A large cover plate creates a cloud frame to add a beautiful outside dimension to your card.  Love the clouds.  Two dies (a background and edge) make up each one.  You can use them together or separately.  I've used them together.  Then choose whether you'd like to add stars, a moon or other elements.

Simply beautiful!

Beez On The Move

Hey Y'all!!!  LOVE LOVE LOVE all the bees at Honey Bee Stamps.  These beautiful sunflowers and bees are from the Happy Fall Yall stamp set.  I know it's not fall yet but the sunflowers are just so pretty any time of year.  My little bee slides around the card effortlessly thanks to Whimsy Stamps Kinetic dies.  Give them a try!  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 coloring this cute little bee and the beautiful sunflowers from Honey Bee Stamps ‘Happy Fall Y ‘all‘ Stamp Set.  There's a matching die too and you can find it HERE.

 

COPIC MARKERS:

• Sunflowers (YR27, YR24, YR23, Y38, Y19, Y15)

• Leaves (YG99, YG97, YG95, YG93)

• Bee (Y17 , Y13, Y11, N9, N7, N5, BG15, BG10)

 

 

The card base is made out of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic Black‘ card stock.  The yellow layer was cut from Stampin' UP!'s ‘Bumblebee‘ card stock and cut with Honey Bee Stamps ‘Deckle Edge‘ dies.  Love the fun and wonky edges.  The patterned layer was cut from Honey Bee Stamps ‘The Bee's Knees‘ 6 x 6 paper pack.  I used a smaller die from the same Honey Bee Stamps ‘Deckle Edge‘ to cut this piece as well.

 

 

Whimsy Stamps makes the slider die I used to allow the bee to slide across the card just by moving the card back and forth.  How cute!

 

Isn't he The Bee's Knees!

Make The Cards Challenge Week #18 – Two Things

Hey Y'all!!!  I'm back with the Make The Cards Challenge Week #18.  This week we are featuring a color challenge called Two Things.  You have to use a stenciled background and a die cut sentiment.  Love the way Oxide Inks make such beautiful backgrounds.  Love Sweet Sentiments Earth Mandala stencil and Whimsy Stamps Thanks Word & Shadow die.  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 using Sweet Sentiment's ‘Earth Mandala Stencil' and Distress Oxide inks to create the beautiful background on Sweet Sentiments ‘Premium Coloring Paper‘.

 

Distress Oxide Colors:

• Festive Berries

• Picked Raspberry

 

 

The card base is made out of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Flirty Flamingo‘ card stock.  I cut a piece of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock for a layer between the card base and the colorful stenciled piece.   I used two of the dies from Whimsy Stamps ‘Thanks‘ die set for the sentiment.

 

Beautiful way to say Thanks.

Live Like Someone Left The Gate Open

Hey Y'all!!!  Do your pigs & horses have spots?  Mine do!  And you know I love bright colors. Wouldn't you love to see a bright green horse with spots??  We should all ‘Live like someone left the gate open'.  My wish for you is that you are able to go out and enjoy life outside after this crazy year we've all had.  Enjoy the sunshine and warm weather.  Be happy!  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 coloring the ‘Oddball Farm Animals‘ stamps set from Stamping Bella.  They are colored on Sweet Sentiments ‘Premium Coloring Paper‘.

 

COPIC MARKERS:

• Pig (RV09, RV06, RV04, T2, T0)

• Cow (BG49, BG05, BG01, E47, E44, E43, Y28, Y26, T2, T0)

• Horse (YG09, HG05, YG01, E47, E44, E43, E79, E74, E71, T1, T0)

• Grass – YG67, YG17, YG03)

 

 

The card base is Stampin' UP!'s ‘Melon Mambo‘ card stock.  I colored the grass & hills with Copic Markers.

 

I cut a piece of scrap paper with one of the cloud dies from Whimsy Stamps ‘Grass Cloud Edger‘ dies.  I used it as a template to create the beautiful Distress Oxide Spiced Balmy Blue clouds on a piece of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock size 5 x 3 3/4.

 

 

I used a retired stamp set from Rubbernecker Stamps for the tree & fence.  Sometimes you've just got to use things you love even if they are retired.

 

The sentiment is from Stamping Bella's ‘Down On The Farm' Sentiment Set.  So fun!

 

Live like someone left the gate open my friends!

You’re Out Of This World

Hey Y'all!!!  These buildings remind me of the houses and buildings in Bermuda.  They are so vibrant and beautiful.  Also a fun way to tell someone you know how fabulous they are.  Love the Slimline Cityscape dies from Whimsy Stamps.  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 cutting these fun little cityscape buildings using Whimsy Stamps ‘Slimline Cityscape‘ dies.  I cut two full sets.  I used the long slender die for the road to cut the bottom edge of the Cityscape buildings.

 

 

Used Distress Oxide Inks to color them.   Love the ‘Cotton Tail Blending Brushes‘ from The Rabbit Hole Designs.  So smooth and effortless with inks.

 

Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry

Distress Oxide Speckled Egg

Distress Oxide Salty Ocean

Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade

Distress Oxide Twisted Citron

Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber

 

The card base is Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock.  I cut a piece of retired Whimsy Stamps paper for the back layer.  It has so many colors and matched the buildings perfectly.

I cut a piece of scrap paper with one of the cloud dies from Whimsy Stamps ‘Grass Cloud Edger‘ dies.  I used it as a template to create the beautiful Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade clouds on a piece of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock size 5 x 3 3/4.

 

 

I also used Whimsy Stamps ‘Grass Cloud Edger‘ dies to create several pieces of grass and colored them with Distress Oxide Mowed Lawn.

 

I alternated layers of cityscape buildings and grass to create the fun building groups.  Finished the card with a cute sentiment from Whimsy Stamps ‘A Boys Dream‘ stamp set.  Colored the background with Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry and cut it out with one of Whimsy Stamps ‘Quick Strips‘ dies.

 

 

You're Out Of This World!

Rain Is Just Confetti From The Sky

Hey Y'all!!!  You know I love bright colors.  And I love looking for rainbows after a storm.  This card has a beautiful rainbow in the background surrounded by the sun and rain clouds cut with dies from La-La Land Crafts.  So pretty!  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 coloring a beautiful rainbow in the background with Stampin' UP! inks.

Love the ‘Cotton Tail Blending Brushes‘ from The Rabbit Hole Designs.  So smooth and effortless with inks.

Stampin' UP! Daffodil Delight

Stampin' UP! Pumpkin Pie

Stampin' UP! Gorgeous Grape

Stampin' UP! Pacific Point

Stampin' UP! Granny Apple Green

 

All the rectangle frames, clouds and sun were cut from Stampin' UP! card stock.

Stampin' UP! Daffodil Delight

Stampin' UP! Pumpkin Pie

Stampin' UP! Gorgeous Grape

Stampin' UP! Pacific Point

Stampin' UP! Granny Apple Green

 

The frames were cut with Lawn Fawn ‘Stitched Rectangle Frames' dies.  Beautiful stitching right down the center of the frame.  The sun and clouds were cut from La-La Land Crafts ‘Sun & Cloud' dies.  So fun with their beautiful stitching.

 

 

The sentiment is from Spellbinders ‘Cute Boots‘ Stamp Set.  Stamped in black ink and cut out with oval punch.

 

Sun and rain together.  There has to be a rainbow somewhere!
