Oh, Boy!

Hi, Everyone!

I have been making cards and I have forgotten to share!  The two I’m sharing on this card are birthday cards.  This Mickey Mouse card was for a 1 year old’s birthday.  He loves Mickey!  I got this stamp set along time ago at Michael’s, I think.  If you want to see an image of the stamp, you can click here to see it on Amazon- but it doesn’t seem like a great price, so check your local craft store first!

Oh Boy!

I stamped Mickey on Neenah cardstock and then colored him with copic markers.  For the black piece, I embossed the sentiment with white powder and the Mickey heads in clear powder.  Then I fussy cut the image and adhered him on using some foam tape.

Oh Boy 4

A quick and simple way to add some wow to a plain background.

Lotso Card in a Box

This second card is for a friend who recently moved to Hawaii.  She asked me to make a card for her husband’s upcoming birthday.  They love Lotso the bear.  I know….it’s kind of weird on this card and I almost didn’t want to share because I wasn’t sure if anyone would appreciate it!  It means a lot to them – since their love story involves this purple bear so I tried to incorporate as much as she asked for: Lotso, palm trees and turtles.

Lotso Card in a Box 1

Lotso was printed from the internet.  The turtles are from Clearly Besotted and the palm tress are from Lawn Fawn.  The back ground is sponged with distress ink.

I wince… but I think Lotso is pretty cute on this card – especially if you know my friend Kat at all.  She got this card in the mail the other day and “lurves” it!  She’s excited to give it to her husband.  🙂

I hope you enjoyed those!  I have two wedding cards to share but I’ll share those next time!  Have a great week!

XOXO,

This Land is Your Land – Splitcoaststampers Month 6

It’s about time I shared my last month’s work as a Splitcoaststamper dirty dozen design team member right?! I cannot believe that was 7 months ago!!!  I’m such a slacker for not posting these sooner.  This will be a longer one so I will dive into sharing the photos – the supply list will be at the end for these.  The theme was “This Land is Your Land” and we could do anything that represents our culture/heritage, where we live, etc.

cherry-blossoms-2

This first card is made using a Cherry Blossom set from Fiskars. I got this stamp set on Amazon when I first got into stamping and had never used it before so I decided to use it on this card to create a full background. I colored these blossoms with Copics, then added white dots at the center of the flowers to highlight.  It was beautiful!  It reminds me of the Lunar New Year – which is very much a part of my Vietnamese background.

cherry-blossoms-1

I did a simple prayers sentiment and propped it up with some foam and added some glossy accent to make the word pop a little.

This second card is patriotic.  You can’t do this theme without a card with Red, White & Blue!  I used a stencil and brushed on color using Clarity Stencil brushes.  You can do this with foam applicators too!  The brushes allowed me to control the intensity of the color.

fountain-1

This card represents my hometown – Kansas City, Missouri.  Did you know that next to Rome, Kansas City has the most fountains?  It’s known as the city of fountains in the United States!

mermaid-for-you-2

This mermaid card was so fun to make! I stamped and colored all the images, cut them out and then layered them over blue cardstock and velum.  Actually – it’s the reason why I’m making myself post this today.  I want to give this card to a friend for her birthday!  hehe

mermaid-for-you

How does this card apply to the theme?  For me – it was a part of growing up to watch Disney movies and believe in magic! We all have, right?  These mermaids remind me of my youth and my younger sister- this movie was her favorite!

This orchid in a pot was so easy to stamp – Hero Arts kind of makes it fool-proof with their layering sets. I made this card a 4-bar sized card, which frames this orchid perfectly and makes the perfect note card.

snow-capped-mountains-1

Last but not least…I wanted to make a card to display the beauty of our mountains!  I have not been to Colorado – but I’ve seen amazing photos from friends who travel all over and I just dream of standing in their shoes! This card is simple stamping of the trees and layering of die cut pieces.

snow-capped-mountains

I hope you enjoyed these cards!

XOXO,

Festive Flurry

Hi There!

Every month, the LiveLoveCards community has a monthly challenge and I always try to be a part of it – it gives me inspiration for a card and makes me think about the next project a few days in advance. This month’s challenge is SNOWFLAKES! So I pulled out this Festive Flurry set that became available through Stampin’ Up! two years ago. It’s now retired but I feel so fortunate that I was able to get these last year during Stampin’ Up!’s holiday sales!

Festive Flurry 1

Don’t be fooled by this card! It really wasn’t hard to make. I think the part that took the longest was the distress ink blending – haha. I stamped a piece of Neenah White cardstock with a Falling Snow background stamp in Versamark ink, covered it in pearl white embossing powder, then heat set it. Then I covered the panel by blending with Shaded Lilac distress ink.

Festive Flurry 2

The snowflake itself is layered with different sizes of the snowflake (from the bottom) in Dusty Concord ink, silver embossing powder, Seedless Preserves ink, and Shaded Lilac Ink. Lots of dimensionals used! I also added the ribbon between the first two snowflakes at the bottom to give it an ornament feel.

Festive Flurry

I hope you like it! All the supplies will be listed below. Here is my video if you’d like to watch it come together:

Peaceful Pines Spinner Card

Hi Everyone!

I’ve been loving the idea of making a spinner card it and took me a while to decide on a theme for this card. I needed to find an image that is symmetrical and I talked myself into making another holiday card using this Peaceful Pines stamp set by Stampin’ Up! It has coordinating dies (Perfect Pines) and is symmetrical so it was what I needed for this card.

Perfect Pines Spinner Card 3

I used distress ink to add color to the card base and the front panel – I love the way distress ink reacts with water droplets – it almost gives it a bokeh look.

Perfect Pines Spinner Card 1

It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do but once I decided – this really was a quick card.

Perfect Pines Spinner Card

Here’s my video if you’d like to watch the process – I hope it inspires you to make a spinner card this weekend!

Winter Scene Window Card

Hi Everyone!

It’s FRIDAY! YAY! I’m excited that I got to craft tonight, but I also feel extra rushed to get this posted now because I also have to work tomorrow. 😦 boo….

I’m using Stampin’ Up! products for today’s card.  They’re new products from this year’s Holiday Catalog that I haven’t played with yet.  Seems like everything is centered around the holidays now and it’s coming  a lot faster than I want. I don’t know about you – but thinking about making a ton of holiday cards kinds of brings me anxiety – not to mention the presents, wrapping and trying to keep everyone happy!

Let’s focus on happy things, shall we? This card makes me happy – it feels so peaceful!

Winter Scene Window Card 2

I stamped my trees and I guess the ink was still a bit wet when I started blending the blue background – so it was completely unintentional that some of the red from the brown Early Espresso ink that I used bleed and created this soft pink background around the trees.  It ended up looking sooo pretty!

Winter Scene Window Card 3

I tried to keep it looking realistic by trying to make it look like a window scene – but I couldn’t help but add some texture/snow to the card base.  Who has snow on their walls? Ok…maybe I shouldn’t get too literal about a window scene.

Winter Scene Window Card

Here’s a closer look at the window scene:

Winter Scene Window Card 1

I love heat embossing. It just makes everything look pretty and soft. Here’s the video if you’d like to see the process:

Fall Leaves – White Space Card

Hi Everyone!

I guess my card making is going to be a weekly thing for now ;).  I’m a part of the Live Love Cards Community – so for the October Challenge, which is “White Space”, I decided to make a simple fall card using some die cuts.

Fall Leaves

Darlene Devries who is the owner of LiveLoveCards.com is such a fabulous cardmaker – she’s humble and extremely friendly and I love her videos. There is a small fee to join the community but I assure you, it’s completely worth it! I have trouble with white space too – but I think it’s easier than some of us think to call it done and walk away. I love how this card turned out and I hope you like it!

Fall Leaves 3

I used distress ink to pick up color for these leaves and also used distress ink to blend a green background for the leaves.

Fall Leaves 2

The sentiment is from a Stampin’ Up! Set called For All Things which is still available.  I’m glad it was carried over from last year’s holiday catalog.

Fall Leaves 1

I finished off the card by adding some shimmer to the leaves using some Wink of Stella (I used gold at first but ended up like clear better).

Here’s my video if you want to watch the process. This was a really quick and easy card to do!

Happy Harvest – Fall Card

Hi Everyone!

I’ve been playing with the Heidi Swapp Minc Machine all week and I’m having no luck with foiling stamped images. I recorded the whole process but at this point, I feel like it’s pointless to make a video of my failures. Has anyone had success with this? I have no doubt that toner-printed images will foil fine – the sample tags that came with the machine turned out beautifully. As soon as I can get what I like to print, I’ll be trying that out.

I’ve been in a crafting rut lately. I haven’t felt very good and my energy level is way down – so I feel bad that I’m only making one card a week as opposed to the 2-3 that I was doing when I was living in Ohio. I recently placed a small Stampin’ Up! order so I’ll have new holiday card ideas very soon. Today’s card features another Lawn Fawn product.  I didn’t get matching dies this time – I have to say – I love the way it looks without the white paper trim that dies leave – but it takes quite a bit of patience to hand cut all these stamped images. In the end…it is always worth the trouble. I love how this card turned out!

Happy Harvest 2

I used distress ink blending to cover the base and tall grass piece. Then I colored in each stamped image with Copics. It’s fairly straight forward but we all know coloring takes patience too!

Happy Harvest

Happy Harvest 1

I used some Sakura Gelly Roll pens to highlight the eyes and to add white accents to the sunflowers. I also added some Wink of Stella Clear shimmer to the flowers and pumpkins. I hope you like this card!

Happy Harvest 3

Here’s my video for this card – Enjoy!
