feel better soon

Hello Everyone. Hope you had a great weekend and found some time to get creative.

I have a couple of get well cards to share with you today. The first one was super easy and I really like the CAS look. I die cut a circle out of scrap paper to create my stencil, then I sponged a couple of Distress Oxide inks in the circle. Once that dried I stamped the dandelion image three times and used some green distress oxide ink to paint the stems and leaves. The greeting was stamped with Archival black ink. 



For this card I started by the stamping the silhouette palm trees with Versafine Black ink and heat embossed them with black EP. Next I sponged on various Distress Oxide inks to create the background. I used a small brush to sprinkle on some water for interested. The feel better soon is part of a larger greeting and was stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with detailed white EP 
once the black frame was die cut. Pretty bird Odie was stamped, colored with Copics, fussy cut and layered on some die cut palm trees before adding him to the frame.


Thanks for stopping by today.

celebrate birthdays


Happy Monday Everyone. Hope you had a great week and weekend. I have a couple of birthday cards to show you today. The first one is on the feminine side and uses the new flower scroll image. I started by stamping the flower scroll with Memento black ink onto white CS, colored with Copics and attached it to a black panel. Next I die cut another black panel with a SB celebrate die. Once the layers were attached, I added the black gingham ribbon and then put everything on the white card base. The flowers were die cut using various flower and leaf dies.



The second birthday card is more playful. I sponged the water/waves with a couple of Distress oxide inks using a stencil made with a wavy border die. The Killer birthday greeting and bubbles were stamped with Versafine Black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I added some clear Nuvo drops to the bubbles to make them look a bit more realistic. The happy Shark was stamped onto white CS, colored with Copics and fussy cut. I die cute some sea grass and attached them along with the shark image.

Cured yet?


Hi Everyone. Hope you have had a wonderful week. My card today is one of those Impossible Cards. Splitcoast Stampers had a great tutorial on how to create one and I had to give it a try. It really is quite easy. You can find the tutorial here.

I started with the blue CS, made the cuts and folds and then added the layers. The Leonard Pig Sickday Blues image was stamped with Memento Black and colored with Copics. I used a corner punch to round a couple of the corners before attaching it to the black CS and then base. The speckled paper was made using the splatter background stamp with three different Distress Oxide inks. The Cured Yet? greeting was stamped and added to the front. That piece gives the card a bit more stability. The second half of the greeting was stamped and added to the back for even more stability.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have fun getting inky!

Thank You


Hi Everyone. I have a quick card to share today. The die does all the work for you, well most of it anyway. I started by adding some TH Distress Oxide inks to a piece of Glossy White CS and set it aside to dry.

Next I die cut the flower image using a Gina Marie die, then I used the outline die to embossed the flowers. The new Deco Thank You greeting (623E) was stamped with black ink onto the bottom of the white panel. This panel was glued onto the glossy CS and then attached to a white card base. So easy to do and I really like the look of this die with the pretty colors behind.

New Beginning

Hi Everyone. Thanks for stopping by today. I need a couple of graduation cards, so I thought I'd use the new beginning (602E) greeting on this one.


The New Beginning greeting (602E) and Female Graduate were both stamped with black ink onto white CS. The grad was colored in some with Copics. Both were die cut and layered onto yellow CS. The grad cap was created using an Impression Obsession grad die set. The white panel was embossed with a Darice grad EF and layered onto black CS. A black gingham ribbon was added before attaching everything to the white card base.

Inside I stamped the Congratulations on your Graduation greeting with black ink.


Hope you had a great weekend!

Adventure

Happy Monday! Today I have a fairly quick and easy card to share with you that uses one of the newest greetings, Let the Adventure begin (615E). I really like the font and size of this greeting.


The new greeting (615E) was stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink onto the blue panel. Next I die cut the kraft CS to look like a path and added some speckles with the Splatter Background image using Memento Cocoa ink. This piece was also stamped with the cute Sally snail image so the little antenna would show up and I wouldn't have to try and fussy cut them!! The green panel was stamped with the easy grass background using Memento Bamboo ink. Everything is layered onto the blue panel and then attached to a white card base. The snail was stamped onto white paper, colored with Copics, fussy cut and glued into place.

Here's a look at the inside. The Go Confidently greeting was stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink.

get well soon

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend. Today I have a Get Well card to share with you that features the new Flower Wheelbarrow (629H).


To begin I stamped the new image(629H) with VersaMark ink onto Water color CS, heat embossed it with detail white EP and then used various TH Distress Oxide inks to color the image, grass and sky. Once the panel dried I die cut it with a SB nestie die and layered it onto a white Die cut trellis like panel, also cut with a SB die. The get well greeting was stamped with VErsafine Black ink, die cut and popped up with foam squares. The flowers in the upper corner were die cut with SSB dies and either glued on to the panel or added with pop dots. I used a clear Wink of Stella pen to add some shimmer to the flower centers.
