Advice from a sunflower

Happy Saturday, friends! I’m excited to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a pretty CAS ‘thinking of you’ card featuring several awesome products – but the main attraction on this card is the sunflowers! I love all kinds of flowers but I would have to say that the sunflower is my favorite!

I rounded one bottom corner of my ivory card base to add a little interest. I adhered a small piece of patterned paper to the bottom of the front panel, added a strip of Wood Washi Tape and layered the panel on dark brown cardstock. I added a die cut stem and several Sunflower Brads, and adhered the layered panel to the card base. I die cut a digital sentiment and popped it up on foam pieces for a little dimension. The final touch was the addition of several small Ivory Enamel Dots.

I printed a small sunflower from the digital set and trimmed the inside panel. I colored the small sunflower with alcohol markers and embellished the panel with strips of the patterned paper and dark brown cardstock, and stamped the sentiment in brown ink.

One last look… so loving how this turned out!

Yuletide Greetings diorama card

Hey, hey, hey! Happy Thursday, friends! I’ve popped in this morning with a fun Christmas diorama card that folds flat for mailing! This is another version of the stand-alone Winter Cardinal Diorama that I posted several weeks ago HERE using some of the same stamps and one of the dies. I’m entering this fun fold into The Outlawz Monday Greeting Challenge! Our sponsor is Fred She Said and the challenges are always Anything Goes with a greeting!

This card is 5″ x 5-1/2″ when folded flat, and when the front flap is opened the diorama is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. I covered the front flap with candy cane paper, and added a stamped and layered image embellished with washi tape and a stamped and die cut pine cone, and some snowflake bling down the left side. Very festive! ;)

The inside is actually the star of the show… a cluster of die cut pine branches, a pretty red stamped and die cut cardinal, some stamped and die cut pine cones and three red winter berries created with a 1/2″ circle punch, all ‘dusted’ with faux snow (which is actually grit paste), and all viewable through the oval aperture! I stamped the sentiment, trimmed it and layered it on green cardstock, and adhered it at an angle over the top left of the oval aperture.

Here’s a shot from above so you can see the simple construction. Closing the front flap pushes the diorama to the right which folds the card flat.

And one more peek… this was so much fun! I have a cutting and scoring template for this diorama card that I have put up on my Freebies page, so be sure to take a peek if you’re interested!

Congratulations!

Hi everyone! I’m back with another post today to share a fun congratulations card I made for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge! I’ve actually got several other projects going on in my studio and I didn’t want to forget to share this one before the challenge ends, lol! I’ve been known to do that because of the way this old brain works! ;) Cute As A Button Digital Stamps is the sponsor for this challenge, and the challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional twist thrown in to inspire participants. This time the optional twist is Buttons (real or faux). So I used three stamped and die cut buttons that I had in my doo-dad bowl (yes, I have one of those, lol!) that I made a few weeks back for another design team project and decided at the last minute not to use them. I knew they’d come in handy! ;)

I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base from white cardstock. I had a printed digital paper pack out on my desk from the last card I posted and decided on a blue/green pattern for this card which I paired with some royal blue and emerald green linen cardstock in my stash. I layered some angled cuts which complemented the buttons very well, I thought. Super simple but very effective CAS design. ;)

I carried the angle to the inside panel with the digital paper and a strip of green linen cardstock, stamped a sentiment and layered the panel on the blue linen cardstock.

And one more peek… totally in love with this design! The optional button twist for this challenge just fell right into place!

owl always love you

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a great day and doing something fun while you’re working or perhaps instead of working?! I popped in to share a Valentine I created for The Outlawz Saturday Paper A La Mode Challenge – the first time I’ve played in this particular challenge and I don’t know why I haven’t played here before! We Are 3 Digital Shop is the sponsor and I used their gorgeous Purse Textures – Smashed Cranberries digital paper. Bear in mind that you do not have to purchase sponsor items to play in any of The Outlawz Challenges but I wanted to see what this sponsor was all about. And when I visited their Etsy shop, this paper pack really spoke to me and I knew I had to have it!

I printed all the papers in this digital pack on 60# Hammermill copy paper and decided on this gorgeous cranberry one for a Valentine. I created my standard A2 size top-folding card base from Solar White cardstock and rounded the bottom right corner. I cut the digital paper and cranberry cardstock layers and adhered them to the card base. I die cut some light pink and cranberry stitched hearts and adhered the large light pink one to the card front. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in white in the lower left corner. I stamped, colored and die cut the owl and branch and arranged them on the heart. I affixed a small stitched heart die cut and a few white enamel dots to finish the card front.

I created the inside panel a little differently than normal this time. I cut digital paper and cranberry cardstock layers and adhered them to the inside of the card base. Then I cut a narrow and a wide panel from white cardstock and adhered them to the digital paper layer. I stamped the sentiment in pinkish-red ink and added two small stitched heart die cuts.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! I’m so smitten with this digital paper!

I’ll be gnome for Christmas!

Hi everyone! I hope your week has started off well and you had a nice restful weekend! I’ve stopped in to share a card I created for The Outlawz Festive Fridays Challenge! Our sponsor is Hetty Clare and the themes we’ve been given to choose from are Thank You, Birthday, Special Occasion or Christmas. I chose Christmas this time because I have a super adorable Christmas gnome rubber stamp that has been calling my name! I sure do love me some gnomes!

I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base, rounded the bottom right corner and applied several strips of washi tape to the background. I stamped the gnome in black ink on a small panel of white cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers and layered it on red cardstock. I adhered the image to the card base and stamped the sentiment beneath it in black ink.

I kept the inside fairly simple by adding a strip of washi tape, stamping the sentiment in black ink and layering the panel on red cardstock.

And one more peek… totally loving this Christmas gnome dude! ;)

you color my world

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and stayed indoors where it’s safe, warm and cozy! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring Astrobrights cardstock that was included in our Designer’s Pack – which happens to be on sale this month so be sure to get some! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created a fun Valentine in untraditional colors. Valentines are typically pink and/or red, and this one is bright yellow and hot pink!

I cut a 5″ square top-folding card base from Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with an inside panel from Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock. I cut a front background panel from hot pink and white dotted patterned paper. I die cut a large sunburst from Astrobright Solar Yellow cardstock which I adhered to the patterned paper background, and then adhered a die cut stitched heart cut from Raspberry Ice cardstock to the center of the sunburst. I stamped the sentiment in black on one of the sunburst rays. I stamped, colored and die cut a Crazy Bird focal element for the card front, layering the eyes/beak and wing four times for some dimension. The finishing touch was the addition of randomly-spaced Morning Dew Crystal Drops on all the sunburst rays for a little interest.

I embellished the inside panel with a strip of hot pink and white dotted patterned paper and a narrow strip of the bright yellow cardstock along with a small die cut stitched heart, stamped the sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on the yellow cardstock.

And one more peek… totally loving this Valentine in the bright yellow and hot pink color combo! The Astrobrights cardstock is amazing!

What the Cluck?

Happy Saturday to you, my friends! Hope you had a great week and you’re doing something fun this weekend! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a not-so-ordinary baby card using awesome brads, washi tape and enamel dots! Those who know me know that I have a warped sense of humor which is evident in this card!

I still had these brads and stamp set out on my desk from another card I made which will be showcased in a few weeks, and I couldn’t help myself… I had to make another card with them! I created a top folding card base and went with a yellow and red color combo which I thought complimented the chicken nicely. The dotted cardstock is some of my favorite so I used a scrap of yellow and white dotted across the bottom of the background panel, topped it with a strip Glitter Black Washi Tape and then added a thin strip of red cardstock. I added one Chicken Brad, stamped the sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on the red cardstock. I adhered the panel to the card base, and the finishing touch was the addition of several Black Enamel Dots.

I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of yellow dotted and red cardstock used on the front, stamped the sentiment in black ink, and layered the panel on the red cardstock.

And one more peek… this cracks me up! I love it!

we make a great pear

Hi friends! I’m back this afternoon with one more card for The Outlawz Challenges! This one is for the Monday Greetings Challenge where our sponsor is The Paper Nest Dolls and the theme is Hearts. I created an adorable and pun-y CAS anniversary card for the hubby later this year (wink-wink)! I wanted to go ahead and get this card posted because I may not be around much for the next couple days as he is having gallbladder surgery early Wednesday morning. We’ll be traveling across the state tomorrow to a hospital with a well-equipped ICU (just in case) since he’s high-risk. We’re praying for a good outcome without any issues, and if you are the praying type, we sure would appreciate one!

I created my typical A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the right bottom corner, then stamped the pears and hearts on scraps, colored them with alcohol markers and cut them with the coordinating dies. I layered two green stitched ric rac die cuts across the bottom of the card base, arranged the pears and heart, and stamped the sentiment in green ink.

I kept the inside super simple with just a stamped sentiment. ;)

And one more look… OMG, how stinkin’ cute is this?! You’ll definitely be seeing more projects using these awesome stamps and dies! I LOVE them!

Dude!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Hubby had a doctor appointment this morning and then we ran a few errands, so we are just now getting home. I have a fun CAS card to share that I made yesterday for The Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes Challenge. ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ is the rhyme for the new challenge that started yesterday so let me introduce to you my star struck chicken! This image is from Sherry West Art who is our sponsor this time! I did LOL (literally) a few times while making this card! I don’t even know the name of this image – it was a freebie in Sherry’s Facebook Group – but isn’t it a hoot?!

I created a standard A2 size side-folding card base. I printed the image on white cardstock and colored it with alcohol markers, trimmed it and layered it on yellow cardstock and then black. I stamped the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps Hey Ostrich stamp set in black ink and added some stars to fit the theme for the challenge. I lucked out having this awesome stamp set in my stash with sentiments that go so well with this chicken image!

I embellished the inside panel with strips of black and yellow cardstock, stamped the sentiment and layered the panel on yellow cardstock.

And one more look… how hilarious! Love how this turned out!

its your BIG day

Hi everyone! I’m back with one more project I created last Thursday for The Outlawz Challenges! That was the day that I set a record in my studio – ten cards in one day. I finished two that I had already started and then created eight more. Several were for The Outlawz, several were for two guest gigs coming up and several were with new products for another design team I’m on. Definitely a busy and productive day for sure! This card is for the Twisted Thursdays Challenge where Fabrika Fantasy is our sponsor. The challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional twist. This time the twist is Glitter! I used loose glitter, glitter paper and glitter washi tape for this birthday card!

This card features the Cottage Cutz Sweet Fairy die set. It has a gazillion pieces so I die cut them all from 110# Solar White cardstock and colored them individually with alcohol markers. It brought back childhood memories of coloring my paper doll clothes back in the day! The little fairy was created first and set aside. I used the loose glitter on her wings. ;)

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base along with a white layering panel and dotted and striped silver foil vellum panels which I adhered to the layering panel. I added a strip of red glitter washi tape to the seam and then adhered the panel to the card base. I punched several 1/2″ circles and adhered them over top of the foiled dots in random places. I adhered the fairy on foam dimensionals and added a sentiment stamped in navy blue ink to pull in the color of her dress. The final touch was adding tiny iridescent gemstones to the stars on the sentiment strip and larger iridescent gemstones on several of the foiled dots.

I embellished the inside panel with a wide strip of the striped silver foil vellum and a strip of red glitter washi tape, stamped the sentiment in navy blue ink and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more peek… totally loving how this turned out! It’ll be set aside for a very special granddaughter’s birthday later this year! ;)
