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,

Miscellaneous Cards

Hi Everyone!

I’m here to share some recent cards that I made.  Sometimes I feel like I haven’t done a whole lot until I look back and all the photos I’ve taken.  I made a set for a friend this past week and have a few older cards too.

  1.  Princess Thank You cards

Princess Thanks 1

I made this set for a neighbor.  Her daughter turned 1 and she waned a set of thank you cards to send out after the party.  I printed the crowns on cardstock using my laser printer and added some gold foiling using my Minc machine.  I used We Are Memory Keeper Next Level embossing folders for the pink cardstock.  It’s the Quilted set (there are two in each embossing folder set).  The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is a stamp and cut set called Thanks.

2.  Little Bundle

This Little Bundle Lawn Fawn set has been my go-to set for baby shower cards.  I just love that you can make it over and over again and it never gets old.  So…it might look similar to something I’ve shared before.

3.  Happy Pandas

I’ve made a similar card like this in the past as well, but this time, I used Copic markers. Copics and watercoloring are my favorite mediums.  This Happy Panda set is just adorable and super simple to color since Pandas are already black and white.  I just added some gray to them for some variation.

4.  Amazing Peonies

In the past, I have always used just the outline of this Peony Bouquet set to stamp and color.  This time, I decided to use this layering stamp set as it was intended – I used 3 different ink colors and it was effortless.  These cards can be whipped out so quickly!  The sentiments are from a My Favorite Things set called Amazing – imagine that! 🙂

5.  Wedding Cake

Concord and 9th makes amazing stamp sets.  I love this Happy Day stamp set because it can be used for so many occasions!  I made this for a wedding reception we went to last weekend.  I embossed the image in gold and watercolored using Distress Markers – I’ve never done that before and it really works a lot like Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

6. Hello Florals

I used this stamp set for the 30 day coloring challenge in March.  I had to stop and think about that because I can’t believe it’s already May.  This is another set by Concord and 9th called Hello Lovely.  Instead of using black to emboss, I used white.  It really changes the effect of the card.  I used Zig Clean Color Real brush markers for this card.  I love the vibrant colors!

7.  Mickey and Minnie Birthday

Last but not least – I have a card I made using Mickey stamps that I got from Michaels – I don’t have a link for this one, sorry!  I personalized them using My Favorite Things’ Stitched Alphabet Banner dies.  A little personalization always makes a card more fun!

I hope you enjoyed those cards!  You can click on the images to enlarge them.  I have a few Mother’s Day cards to share next time – I hope I remember to share them before next Sunday!  Until then, take care!

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!

fountain

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,

2017 Year of the Rooster Lucky Red Envelopes

Happy Lunar New Year!

I wish all my wonderful family and friends much love, good health, and prosperity this coming year.  It’s been such a long week. My little Liam turned 4 on Monday and my nephew Aaron turned 15 on Wednesday.  My family also experienced loss today.  Even in despair, we were able to unite and celebrate the new year before last minute trips out of the country.   Cancer is such a terrible thing but I take solace in knowing the pain and suffering has ended. We were supposed to celebrate on Sunday because because this happened, I scrambled today to get these envelopes made.

I learned last year from making these envelopes, that 80lb paper was too thick.  So this year, I went to Michaels and got a pack of 65lb red cardstock.  It’s inexpensive and serves its purpose great for this project.  I use the Mama Elephant Lucky Envelope die and cut out two envelopes. Then I stamped twenty roosters and lamps on cardstock and colored them using Copic markers.

2017-lucky-envelope

2017-lucky-envelope-1

Eep! They are sooo cute!  I set these aside and began to emboss the sentiment and an image of cherry blossoms from the Lunar Extras set onto the red envelopes using my MISTI tool.  I speed up this process by stamping and applying powder to a batch of envelopes before heat setting them. Once that was done – it was a matter of gluing these chickidees onto the envelope.

2017-lucky-envelope-2

I really look forward to making these every year for the next 10 years…lol…just so I can design each a little different and use each of the 12 animals on this stamp set.  Last year, I make envelopes using monkeys.  If you wish to see that project, simply click HERE.

Before I go, I also want to share a quick birthday card I made using an Altenew layering set. I believe this stamp set is from a set called Beautiful Day.  I could be wrong.  It’s 1:34 am right now and I’m super tired!

beautiful-day

All stamping and no coloring here (I did outline those berries – but that doesn’t count as coloring).

beautiful-day1

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

XOXO,

Birthday Balloon Animals

Hello there!

I missed the May challenge for LiveLoveCards so I thought I would play along this month since I’m caught up on my Splitcoaststamper cards for the month.  This month’s theme is LARGE SENTIMENTS.

It’s really hard for me to decide what I want to do until I decide what stamp sets I want to use. I organize my stamps by company and then by stamp name in alphabetical order. So when I ran across this More Animal Balloons stamp set by Avery Elle…I stopped looking. :P.

I stamped my images in Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear powder so that I could watercolor using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I added a wash of light blue in the background for a sky effect and drew balloon strings in with a permanent black marker.

Balloon Animals 1

The sentiment is from Big Scripty Greetings by Simon Says Stamp and I decided to stamp it with Versamark ink and emboss it with WOW Sparkle Gold powder.

To finish off, I added a Wonky Rectangle border and added glossy accents to the balloons to give them a shinny raised look – it’s more balloon-like with the glossy accents :).

This card was very simple and quick to do – I just didn’t want to miss another monthly challenge.  I hope you enjoyed!

Balloon Animals

Thanks for stopping by~

Plaid Birthday Card

Happy Friday and Happy Halloween, Everyone!

I decided to do something different today and stay away from any holiday themes. I’m sure many of you have seen too many of those lately and I know I’ll be making lots of holiday cards soon. Having said that – I got this plaid inspiration from a few holiday cards I’ve seen lately! Kristina Werner used watercolor to create her plaid background and My Favorite Things featured a plaid card using gold foil.  I’m going to keep it simple and use stamping only :).

Plaid Birthday 2

I used 4 colors and I really don’t think you should use anymore than that – it makes it far too complicated.  The plaid design can be done anyway – as long as you keep the square pattern consistent with each type of line design (stamp thickness) that you use. As always, I did not do a test run and just started stamping. So I know that you can do this too!

Plaid Birthday

I stamped one color/stamp at a time and then decided to add a border of dots using a die from Mama Elephant. To make the sentiment pop, I used the MISTI to line it up and to stamp twice to ensure good coverage of ink and embossed it.

Plaid Birthday 1

Pretty Pink Posh has new embellishments called Clear Droplets – they have some height to them and are really pretty! They do roll around a bit though there is one flat side to adhere to your project. To help me put them on the card without them rolling all over and getting adhesive all over them, I used the Pick Me Up Tool. See below for the full list of supplies.

I made this card for my friend, Tiffany, who I’ve known for more about 13 years. She just go married recently so I decided to use a basic alphabet stamp set to create a box of monogrammed cards for her.  The stamp set I used is by Stampin’ Up! and is called Sophisticated Serifs. It’s no longer available but you can really do this with whatever alphabet sets you may have. Here’s a photo of one of the cards I made for her. I used my MISTI and got them done pretty quick!

Tiffany and Brian Monogram Card

Both cards were very quick card and and easy to make. I hope you liked the plaid background! Here’s my video for this week:

Toboggan Together Penguins

Is anyone excited for holiday products?  I’ve been stalling on a Stampin’ Up! order because i still don’t know if I want to force myself to buy stuff to stay an active demonstrator. I have a few holiday sets from Lawn Fawn that are super cute and I’m going to share the Toboggan Together set today. I’m also blending with distress ink for the first time so this card was fun!

Tobaggan Together Peguins 2

Lawn Fawn sets are always filled with SMALL adorable stamps.This really deterred me at first – because why would I want to fussy cut ALL those tiny images? So when I got this set, I talked myself into getting the matching dies. It’s hard to avoid with Lawn Fawn (I think they do this on purpose!). There’s no denying that their stamps are super cute.

Tobaggan Together Peguins 1

Tobaggan Together Peguins

There are deers and penguins – but I chose penguins for this card and I love how it turned out! I hope you like it! If you want to watch the process, here’s my video. Enjoy!

I got my MINC Foil Applicator in the mail today – so I’ll be playing with foiling again very soon. I’m convinced now that I don’t have the right laminator for foiling. We shall see!
