Happy Day Birthday Shaker Card

Hello!  I’m stoping by to quickly share a card I made the other day.  I’ve used this Happy Day stamp set by Concord & 9th quite a few times in the past few months but each time – it turns out different, in all good ways!  In the past, I have embossed the image and watercolored, but I used Copic markers to color the image this time.

Happy Day Birthday Shaker 1

My friend, Missy loves GLITTER.  Every time she asks me to make a card, she wants me to use glitter – so you’ll probably recognize the glitter paper.  I’m also a huge fan of these stitched rectangle scallop frames from My Favorite Things.

Happy Day Birthday Shaker 3

The banner and sentiment is from the same stamp set – I love that you can customize the years.  I propped the frame up using foam adhesive and turned card into a shaker.  The pink in the background is subtle but it brings out the color of the cake as well.

Happy Day Birthday Shaker 2

I filled the shaker portion with lots of iridescent glitter, gold sequins, and some iridescent microbeads.  I haven’t made a shaker in a while so this was fun for me!  I’m working on a fairy card in a box for my next post.  I did all the coloring for it and plan on having a supply list and details.  I’ve shared a few of those cards in the past with very little instructions but I hope to share more next time.  Stay tuned!

XOXO,

Life Is Tough But So Are You

Happy Friday!!!

I’m so excited to have a 3 day weekend!  My husband will be off for the first time in 2 weeks and I can’t tell you what a relief that is!  My kids are out of school for the summer and it has been a LONG week.  It only occurred to me two nights ago that I have not made any cards for leisure since Mother’s Day.  That’s how pre-occupied my mind has been!  I also picked up pointed pen calligraphy for the first time in a very long time time this week with every intent to practice the Copperplate script.  I’ve been hesitating for a while because there is so much involved.  So many different pen holders, inks, nibs, papers – it’s quite overwhelming.  I chose the wrong ink to start with and I struggled for hours the first evening I tried.  So I’ll say this – I HATE Higgins Calligraphy Ink (supposedly Higgins Eternal Ink is great though…I wouldn’t know at this point).

You can click on the images above to  enlarge – but I tried to write the letter a with the Higgins ink and struggled for a few hours before I decided to switch to a new ink.  I had tried three different nibs and they did not make a difference at all.  I do have an instagram account for my lettering if you’re interested in following.  The handle name is Calygraphy – clever, right?  😉

So about my cards.  I thought after a long hard week that I should make some encouragement cards.  Anyone else shop with Ellen Hutson?  I’m going to have to endorse this amazing company for a second…because they are AMAZING.  First of all – they are wonderful people who reward loyal customers.  I thoroughly enjoy using their 10% off discount to have an excuse to place an order monthly.  🙂 . To honor some special women in their lives, they created a stamp set to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).  It’s a beautiful set and $25 from each set sold goes to fund the BCRF.  What a wonderful cause, right?  It’s also a beautiful stamp set that comes with coordinating dies with some powerful sentiments.  You must see it for yourself – the link will be provided below in my supplies.

Life is Tough But So Are You

I stamped a lot of images.  I love layering stamps as well – they add lots of dimension with little effort.  These images are smaller so it’s nice to have coordinating dies.  I made lots of passes through my big shot to cut out all of them.  I have a Brother Scan N Cut 2 that I could’ve used to make all the cuts in one pass but because I had the dies – I decided to do it the traditional way.

Life is Tough But So Are You 1

I need to start making more than one card when I pull out supplies to make a card. That’s what I did this time.  The color variation makes it fun.

Life is Tough But So Are You 2

I sponged some distress ink in the background to give the card some color and embossed the sentiment in clear powder using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  The sequins finish off the card with a bit of shine.

Life is Tough But So Are You 4

Last week, I also made a graduation card for my neighbor – she graduated from Elementary school so I thought I would make a fun card using their school colors.  I used Lawn Fawn’s Smart Cookie stamp set and some punches to make a banner.   I got this idea straight from the Lawn Fawn website and cased it – I couldn’t come up with an original design!  Very basic but I made it fun for her by using a Mini Action Wobbles.

Smart Cookie Panther 1

Smart Cookie Panther

That’s all for today!  I hope you enjoyed my two cards!  Supplies for the Courage card will be listed below!  Have a wonderful weekend!

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,

Floral 40th Card-in-a-box

Hello again!

Today is my neighbor and friend, Kerri’s birthday! I’ve been working for a few weeks now what I’m going to do for her 40th birthday. I’ve gotten a few new stamp sets and really wanted to use them. I started out with the Foxy Friends stamp set and Fox builder punch from Stampin’ Up!’s new catalog.

I put together a few foxes using the fox builder.

img_5906

 

They’re super cute but at this point, I had not decided what I wanted to do yet. Then I started playing with the Foxy Friends stamp set. I stamped a bunch of images – then used my Brother Scan N’ Cut 2 to cut the images out. No more fussy cutting (unless I don’t feel like starting up the machine).

img_5907

Once I got all of this cut out – I KNEW I wanted to do a card-in-a-box.  Ah! It’s been a LOOONNNG time since I’ve made one and I got really excited!

There are MANY templates on pinterest. Here’s the one I made for myself (please note that the height of the box should be 5.5 inches – not 6. Sorry for my typo! card-in-a-box-pop-up-template (click to view).

Here’s my card – It’s so cute! While I was putting it together – I decided that this card is not suitable for a 4oth birthday, but I knew exactly which direction I wanted it to go and who I wanted the recipient to be.

foxy-friends-card-in-a-box

Adorable right?! And full of encouraging sentiments. I hope the recipient enjoys it!  Now – how about that 40th card! I wanted to change it up a bit for more display space – so I looked for a tutorial on how to make a card-in-a-box card that sat on it’s side (aka – a rectangle card-in-a-box.  For the card below – the box is made using a base that’s 4 1/4″ x 12″, scored at 2″, 5 1/2″, 7 1/2″, and 11″. Turn 90 degrees and score at 2″.  The 2″ flap once you cut them down will be the top part of the card that folds down.  For the inserts, cut 2 4 11/16″ x 1″ strips and score at 5/8″ from each end.  If you’d like detailed video – here’s one I watched: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/239042692697550254/.

I had no idea what I was going to do for this card – so I went to my stamp stash and started pulling all things floral and butterflies.  😀  Here’s what I came up with! I hope you LOVE it as much as I do!!!

kerri-40-card-in-a-box-2

Don’t worry! As always – the supplies will be listed below. This was NOT as difficult as it seems. I felt that the Foxy Friends one above was more difficult! The gold on this card just speaks for itself so I didn’t feel the need to decorate the other flaps.

kerri-40-card-in-a-box

Kerri loves blush pink, tiffany blue and gold – so I tried my best to incorporate these colors.  EEEK!!! I cannot WAIT to give this card to her!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KERRI!

I have another card I did today that I’m excited to share later on this week – stay tuned!!!

Spring Flowers on Vellum

Hi, Everyone!

So sorry it’s been a while since I last posted here! I’ve been working overtime and trying to fulfill my commitment with Splitcoaststampers to design cards for the next 5 months. I’m just about done for this month so I thought I’d squeeze this card in for my personal blog. If you want to see my work for Splitcoaststampers, you can check it out HERE – each month’s designs will be released/featured on the 15th of month.

For today’s card, I’m coloring using Copic makers on vellum. It creates very soft colors and is beautiful! There’s not much to it!Spring Flowers on Vellum 2

I heat embossed my stamped images using some white embossing powder -then flipped it over to color on the back (this keeps the embossed image from ruining  the nibs on your alcohol markers).

I layered it on some white paper to make the colors pop.

Spring Flowers on Vellum 3

I also add some sequins to embellish it – here’s a close up! Isn’t it pretty?!

Spring Flowers on Vellum

The border is done using a Wonky Stitched Rectangles die set by My Favorite Things. The only thing I wish I could change is not adding adhesive to the border – which caused it to ripple and warp. It’s still pretty and is something I’ve learned for next time.

Supplies are listed below. If you’d like to watch the video – here it is:

Doodle Buds

Hello again!

I thought I would make a quick card to stay up to date with LiveLoveCards‘s monthly challenges.  I do one every month but am way behind this month.  I think I had a hard time deciding what to do because there were so many options this month. I chose this one because I’ve never done a diagonal layout before. The black border there is a Darlene trait! I usually don’t make things pop with black or colored cardstock – but I should! It’s definitely something I need to get used to doing more.  Darlene’s card was colored using distress inks. I used all Copics here.

Doodle Buds 3

I wanted the background of this diagonal piece to have some color, so I used a lighter shade of each element and burst the color out to where they met with another color. I’m just glad it turned out the way I had hoped!

Doodle Buds

This stamp set is called Doodle Buds by WPlus9 – it’s such a simple set but I’ve seen Kathy Racoosin do some beautiful coloring with it. I thought I would try to be adventurous. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.

Doodle Buds 1

Kathy loves to add highlights to her flowers using a white pen – so I tried to add some of that here also. I really think it makes a HUGE difference! It really adds a lot to the images on this card.

Doodle Buds 2

I didn’t make a video for this card – it takes a long time for me to choose colors as I’m working since I didn’t plan ahead this time but I’ll list all the colors below. I hope you liked this card!

Many Thanks

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

I’ve reached almost 200 subcribers on YouTube! Fellow crafters are truly amazing and are so supportive and I am so humbled! I’m here for you all as well, so if there’s something you’d like to see or if you have comments or constructive criticism for my blog or videos – please let me know! I’m learning and would appreciate any feedback. Thank you again!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Everyone loves flowers, right?!?

This Many Thanks set by Simon Says Stamp is one of the more simple layering stamp sets that I’ve seen and is the only one I could muster myself to get so far. I shouldn’t be intimidated because it’s not all that hard – but usually, the stamps are outlined to group which stamps are recommended for use together – this one doesn’t. eek! That’s ok…it just means you can do whatever you what….right? RIGHT? LOL.

Many Thanks 3

Um…yeah…I think I may have thrown together a few combinations that aren’t meant to be…but it still looks pretty!

Many Thanks 1

I added some sequins – I think it finishes off the card really nicely.

Many Thanks

Many Thanks 2

Here’s me fumbling around to get this card together – I used something different this time. Instead of using the MISTI – I used a Martha Stewart Stamp Mount. So you can definitely do this without a MISTI! OR…you can just use acrylic blocks. No need to get fancy. I have the stamp mount and have never used it before. So I thought it would speed things along since I was stamping the same color for more than one stamp at a time (but you can do this with a large acrylic block too!)
