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!

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.

I hope you enjoyed these cards!

XOXO,

Choose Love

Hi Everyone!

I have a really quick and colorful card for you today. In light of all the recent events, I felt compelled to make this card. I don’t feel qualified to get into any debates or specifics about how I feel about everything. It took me a few hours to decide to do a post on this because I’m afraid of what others might think of me and I don’t want anyone to be offended. As humans, we are quick to judge and to dish out our thoughts – we have rights to think and have freedom of speech, but I don’t believe it is truly our place to judge the way others choose to live or what they believe. I live my life with simple principles – work hard, do what you love, be kind to others. CHOOSE LOVE. I think that is the bottom line. Choose love and there is no room for anything else. Rainbows are symbols of hope, love and promise – let’s not make it anymore complicated than that. AND – they are pretty! That’s my two cents on the matter. 🙂 ❤

Choose Love

I used my MISTI to line my hearts border stamp – LOVE the MISTI for this. Makes everything quick and easy and fool-proof. I highlighted the card with a “love” die and and embossed tag. The sequins also gave it some added sparkle. I hope you like it!

Choose Love 1

This video is super short since there is not much to this card. I hope you’ll watch it anyway and that you’ll enjoy it!
