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,

Day 1 – 30 Day Coloring Challenge: Pretty Peony

challenge_graphic-mar16_plain-650-1

Hi Everyone!

Last night before bed, I stamped 30 images. I went through all my stamps and pulled out all my outlined stamps that I decided I would want to color for Kathy Racoosin’s 30 day coloring challenge.  There are stamps I’ve never used before and as I was stamping these images, I felt sooo much better about using them for this challenge.  They won’t be trashed – I am inspired to make cards out of each and every one of these images.  The idea for this challenge is just to color a little bit everyday.  It doesn’t have to be extravagant and you don’t even have to finish.  It’s about finding time to bring yourself joy and to get better at coloring in the process.  We have such a wonderful community of crafters who are doing the same and encouraging each other along the way.  I’m GLAD I actually have every intention to playing along every day.

peony-bouquet-30-day-marker-challenge

At lunch today – I picked out my first image.  It’s the first day of the challenge and I wanted to do something pretty.  One thing led to another and before I knew it – I was cutting out the image and stamping some more leaves and then I was inspired to make a full card.

peony-bouquet-30-day-marker-challenge-3

I stamped a few leaves/berries on top of a light blue sponged background and propped the gold frame up using some foam tape. I decided my flowers and leaves needed something more so I chose a darker pink/red and dotted my peony. It looks interesting – but I also feel like I gave it a disease.  Ugh…hate it or love it?  Then I took my white jelly roll pen and decided to add some lines and dots to the leaves to finish off the card.

peony-bouquet-30-day-marker-challenge-2

Definitely room for improvement with these dots – and possibly the wrong image for this technique.  But hey…that’s what this challenge is for, right?  Try new things and see what works for you!

Kathy Racoosin is an amazing artist.  If you’ve never heard of her before or want to read more, you can click on the 30 day color challenge poster above and it will take you to her blog.  I hope you enjoyed this card!  I’ll be sharing more throughout the month but guarantee I won’t have time to make a card EVERY DAY!  🙂

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

I do have matching dies to cut these out, but it so much faster to zip them through my Brother Scan N’ Cut 2.  I should think about selling the dies for these stamp sets (Mama Elephant’s Lunar Animals and Lunar Extras).

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,

Spring/Easter Cards

So I didn’t win the MFT 2016 Card Design Superstar contest-but some truly amazing, deserving, talented people did!

Anyway – today I’m going to share a few more Splitcoaststampers cards I made from March for “The Little Things” theme.

The first card is a simple layered floral card that I stamped in white ink and colored over using Prismacolor colored pencils.  Not much to say about it!

penelopes-blossoms

penelopes-blossoms-2

I will list supplies below 🙂

My second card is a cute Easter shaker card using another stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I stamped and colored the images using copic markers and used some distress ink to add color to the top panel before adding my cut-outs.

chirpy-chirp-chirp

The egg is on the inside of the card so the shaker portion is see-through through both top panels.

chirpy-chirp-chirp-1

Phew! 3 months down and 3 more to go!  I hope you like these cards!

XOXO,

YOU are Absolutely Fabulous!

Thanks for tuning in for my third and final card for the 2016 Card Design Superstar Contest by My Favorite Things!

Print

When I thought about entering this contest last week – I had only planned on making ONE card.  I can’t believe I’ve made 3 cards in 2 days!!!  That’s a lot for me these days!  I’ve had to work on them in 10 min increments and late into the night but they’re all done and I can’t be happier that I’ve done 3 cards – each unique and different to show MFT who I am as a card designer.

absolutely-fabulous-1

I honestly had no idea where I was going with this card. I went through all my MFT products and knew I wanted to use the new Geometric Greenery stamp set – so I decided I’d want to use the Homespun dies as an accent.  I also decided I wanted to use the Absolutely Fabulous dies because I had never used them before so I just threw it all together and am glad it worked out!  PHEW!

absolutely-fabulous-3

At first, I wanted to in-lay the word fabulous, but it didn’t stand out enough to me – so I applied a heavier coat of distress ink over it and propped it up on some white craft foam. I LOVE IT!

absolutely-fabulous

I also LOVE distress ink. SERIOUSLY – it turns all my white paper into magical colors!

absolutely-fabulous-2

And how about those pretty leaves?! I colored them using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. The top panel is Canson XL watercolor paper by the way – and it took the ink blending particularly well! I was worried about it when I first started!

You are ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS for following along – thank you for all your support!  Again – WISH ME LUCK! I WANNE BE A SUPERSTAR! 😀

XOXO,

caly-sig

Confessions of a Wannabe Superstar

Did my title catch your attention? It’s true – I have lots of confessions. I’m a terrible self-critic. I sell myself short a lot. STOP IT, you say? UGH….I know….I know….!!! I really can’t help myself! When I was asked to be a part of the design team with Splitcoaststampers, I was sooo honored – I still can’t believe that I was a part of that!  At moments I felt like I wasn’t going to make it through it and had serious doubts initially because I was very pregnant and didn’t think I could make so many cards and keep my personal blog and YouTube channel up to date. I just poured all the time I had into it and still haven’t recovered.  It was such a wonderful experience and I really have no regrets!  Having a newborn is a full-time gig!  I still have 5 months of cards to post and I feel like I will never finish doing that – I just wish I had more time!  I am so distracted while working and WISH I could craft instead…and I’ve been consumed by this contest by My Favorite Things:

Print

 

Last year – I had even more self doubt than I do now. I don’t know if you all follow other blogs and try to leave a comment for a 1/3000 chance to win a $25 gift voucher or you tag friends on Instagram to win giveaways. I do….and then I wonder why I even bother?!  HAHA. I’m not complaining – I promise! I’m laughing at myself and all of us in the stamping community that LOVE creating and sharing our passion so much – we get sucked into everything that is posted. It’s because I desire so much to be a part of something bigger. I don’t want to JUST make cards – I want to inspire others and feel like I’m actually reaching people.  I get disappointed and often feel like I’m not good enough – anyone else out there feel that way?! Well…I’m going to stop that right now because I WANNA BE A CARD DESIGN SUPERSTAR!!! I really really do!

We are able to share 3 of our designs using MFT stamps and die-namics. The contest ends Thursday night so I’m going to post one every night for the next 3 nights and I hope you’ll follow along to see what I’ve created!

My first card is an interactive card I made using the Beary Special Birthday set.

surprise-bd-8

I stamped the image twice and cut it apart (leaving off the bear’s paws on the gift box) in order to make the card interactive. You’ll see what I mean in my next few photos.  The bear’s ears stick out a big – so I stamped the other presents to help hid his cute ears.

surprise-mft-challenge-1

SEE?!? You pull on the tab and you reveal the bear! OK – maybe I’m a bit proud of myself. Just a teeny tiny bit. My husband thinks it’s genius but he’s a little biased.  😀

surprise-mft-challenge-2

Peek-a-boo!

surprise-mft-challenge-3

SURPRISE!!!

Let’s talk about the rest of the card, shall we?  I colored the background with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers (man…that’s a mouthful!), spritzed it with some water and let it air dry. I flicked some plain water on it, let it sit for a few seconds, then used a piece of paper towel to soak up the excess to get a speckled background. Color, get it wet, dry, get it wet, soak up extra water. Got it?! LOL – we make it complicated!

I stamped the balloons, colored them, then covered them in glossy accents. You have to…to make them shiny! It’s fun-you have to do it! Do it!!!  To make the banners and pennants, I used distress ink and die cut the pennants using MFT’s Stitched Alphabet Banner die-namics. The word “SURPRISE!” is embossed with white. I LOVE the Wonky Rectangle dies – it finishes off so many cards for me!  I also decided to mat the piece on some Gold Sparkle Card Stock by MFT too. See my supplies below.

I hope you all liked this! Please tune in for the next two days to see the other two cards I’ve created! I’m excited about them! I know I’m teasing you but I didn’t want to put all three of these cards in one post! I won’t be as silly tomorrow – I’m hoping to go to bed early tonight now that I am done making these cards… 😛

XOXO,

Color My World + My Peeps

Hi Everyone!

I’m sitting alone in my garage trying to sell some stuff this weekend and thought I would use this opportunity to post again. I’m going to share two cards today fr0m March (for April).  The theme, to remind those who are just joining, is “The Little Things.” So these cards are fun and centered around little people, critters or things.

color-my-world

The first card is this colorful card using a very inexpensive stamp from Lawn Fawn. I die cut some clouds out of velum and sewed them on the card front using my sewing machine. Then I colored these crayons and placed them randomly on the card.  My son, Evan, loved this card!

color-my-world-1

This is fun and perfect for kids!

color-my-world-2

My second card is more Easter-related. It’s a Peep stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.  I decided to do some tone-on-tone stamping for a light background and simply stamped the images and die cut them out. The grass is made using some fringe scissors – not much to it. I’m a little ashamed of my efforts on this card.  (SHAME).

my-kind-of-peep-1

Sometimes the visions we have in our heads don’t quite execute the way we think they will. But it’s still cute, right?

my-kind-of-peep-2

Ok – I’ve got some customers! See you all again soon!
