Happy for Chocolate!

Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day! I have some great news to share with you today – I have taken over the Ally’s Angels challenge blog for the lovely Ally who is no longer able to devote the necessary time to keep it running. I’ll only be making a few outward changes to the blog but Ally’s basic structure and rules will remain the same (for now anyway), so come on over and play! All challenges are Anything Goes and we’re in need of a few more designers, so if you have room on your plate, let me know! Only one project a month (due by the 5th), a blog and good photos… easy peasy! My debut DT inspiration project for Challenge #61 is a super cute chocolate bar birthday card I created for my daughter-in-law, and she loved it! Well… who wouldn’t, lol?! This card was featured in a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter a while back HERE, and I thought it was so stinkin’ cute, I just had to make one!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock along with a short panel from CutCardStock Bright Gold Foil cardstock and a slightly shorter panel that I covered with Eyelet Outlet Fox & Flowers washi tape which made the wrapper. For the chocolate squares, I punched nine 1″ squares from the Basis Brown cardstock and adhered them to the top portion of the card front. Similarly, I punched nine 3/4″ squares from the brown cardstock and adhered one to the center of each 1″ square with 3-D foam squares. I adhered the two short wrapper panels together and then to the card front. I embellished the wrapper with ephemera and enamel dots from the Scrapbook & Cards Today February 2021 Sampler.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a leftover strip of CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock. I stamped one portion of the sentiment (from the Stampin’ Up Happy & Heartfelt stamp set) in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, and the other portion (from the Stampin’ Up For The Record stamp set) in Delicata Gold Glitz ink, and layered the panel on CutCardStock Bright Gold Foil cardstock.

And one more peek… don’t you just love this?! You know you want to make one! I do believe this has moved to the number one spot on my list of all-time loves! ;)

School Art Fridge Magnets (set of 6)

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far! Still shaking my head at how fast these months are flying by! I’m stoked to be back on the Printable Cuttable Creatables blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! Every parent needs refrigerator magnets to attach their kids’ art work from school, so that was my inspiration for this project using the Back To School SVG Scrap Kit! I typically use the separated SVG files, cut the pieces with my Scan N Cut, and assemble the projects. I did something a little different this time and used the PNG clipart files to print and cut!

I went through the assembled SVG files in the Back To School Scrap Kit and picked out the six images I wanted to use for the magnets. Following my machine’s instructions for Print To Cut projects, I printed the images on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and cut the outlines. I cut just the outlines four more times from 110# Solar White cardstock, and then adhered the cuts one on top of each other to make each magnet base thick and strong. The finishing touch was adding two disc magnets to the back of each one.

And one more look at the set… I absolutely LOVE how these turned out!

Merry Christmas Mini Slimline

Hey everybody! A very Happy Saturday to you – another week has come and gone! My sister’s 70th birthday is in two days, and for years now, I’ve said that once her birthday comes and goes, Christmas will be here in no time! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock that I paired with our Basis Red and Basis Green cardstock along with our Gold Glitter cardstock. What a gorgeous traditional Christmas color combo in a mini slimline size which is one of my favorites!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock, along with layering panels from Basis Red and Baronial Ivory cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set, and embellishing strips from Gold Glitter and Basis Green cardstock. I cut the poinsettia layers from Basis Red, Basis Green and Gold Glitter cardstock. I assembled the panels and adhered them to the card base, and then adhered the poinsettias. I created a foiled sentiment strip with a Baronial Ivory cardstock scrap and my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, Spellbinders Glimmer Gold Foil, and Spellbinders Glimmer Holiday Sentiments Series 2 Hot Foil Plate & Die Set. I flagged the ends with an EK Success 3/4″ square punch and adhered it to the card front with a Darice double-sided adhesive foam strip. The finishing touch was adding several Eyelet Outlet red gemstones.

I cut the inside panels from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory and Basis Red cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set. I embellished the ivory panel with strips cut from Gold Glitter and Basis Green cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Christmas Messages stamp set in Catherine Pooler Rockin’ Red ink, and adhered the panel to the red cardstock layer.

And one more peek… I really love a Christmas card in traditional red and green… as much as I love Christmas cards in non-traditional colors! And I have to say that this die set is one of my favorites!

Birthday Gift Bag with ATCs

Hey everybody! Happy Friday to you all! My new DT gig with the ScrapbookingStore is in full swing and I’m so loving the versatility of the papers and the embellishment upgrades in this month’s scrapbook kit! While the collection is beach-themed, I created a fun gift bag with a striped paper from the kit which will be used for a birthday. That’s what I mean by versatile! I’m wrapping up August’s shares with this gift bag along with three artist trading coins embellished with stickers from the upgrade sticker sheet to tuck into the gift bag!

Using the Lawn Fawn Goody Bag die from my stash, I cut the front and back pieces of the gift bag from a red and white striped pattern paper in the kit and assembled it.

I embellished the front of the gift bag with a stitched banner (cut from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Eris cardstock using the JustRite Stitched A2 Banners and Rectangles die set) and quite a few stickers, a clothespin, and a yellow sun clip from the embellishment upgrades. I also added some gemstones which completed the front.

Here are few more shots of the gift bag from different angles.

To make the artist trading coins that I tucked into the gift bag, I punched 2-1/2” circles from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and embellished them with CutCardStock Pop Tone Sweet Tooth and Cotton Candy cardstock, American Crafts POW Rouge Glitter Paper, bling, and stickers from the upgrade sticker sheet.

Vacation Time mini slimline

Hi everyone! The fun continues creating ScrapbookingStore DT inspiration projects with the awesome variety of papers and coordinating stickers along with the embellishment upgrades in this month’s scrapbook kit! Have I mentioned how much I’m loving this new DT gig?! Today’s share is a fun vacation mini slimline card! Several friends are vacationing this summer at beaches in various locations and I thought it would be fun to create a card as a send-off to a beach vacation!

I cut a 3-1/2” x 6” mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and used a woodgrain-look patterned paper from the kit as the background. I added a paper strip down the left side, stickers from the coordinating sticker sheet, and a few stickers from the upgrade sticker sheet.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a paper strip, stickers from the coordinating sticker sheet, and die cut alphas. I layered the panel on green patterned paper from the kit which completed the card.

And one more look… such a fun card, and I totally love the little clothesline with beach attire hanging from it!

Merry Christmas Slimline

Howdy peeps! We’ve busted into August and my sister’s birthday is in five days, so that means Christmas will literally be here in no time. This happens every year, lol! I have an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project to share with you today. I created a slimline card featuring a string of sparkling bulbs, and of course, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner. This is the first time I’ve used the STAMPlorations Layered Lights stamp set and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it! I love the whimsical fill-ins on all the layered sets!

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner. I cut a 3-3/4″ x 9″ slimline card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Pop Tone Tangy Orange cardstock and 80# Solar White cardstock. Using an acrylic stamp block, I stamped the lights and cord in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink on the white layering panel. Next, I stamped the bulb fill-ins with Ranger rustic wilderness, prize ribbon, crackling campfire, villainous potion and kitsch flamingo distress inks. I stamped over each one a second time with Versamark Dazzle and applied Ranger Bridal Tinsel Embossing Powder along with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder to seal the tinsel. I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment in black ink with the MISTI, adhered the panel to the orange panel and then to the card base, and added one small Darice iridescent gemstone to each bulb which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of CutCardStock Pop Tone Tangy Orange cardstock. I added a STAMPlorations Comfort & Joy Clear Sticker and layered the panel on orange cardstock.

And one more peek… such a FUN card! I love this stamp set and will be using it again and again, I’m sure. And, as I always say, it’s awesome having a great adhesive to hold everything together!

Summer Fun ATCs

Hey everybody! I’m loving this new DT gig with the ScrapbookingStore and I’m still having a blast creating inspiration projects with this month’s scrapbook kit! Love all the beach-themed prints and colors of the papers in this collection along with the coordinating stickers! I have a fun set of six Summer Fun artist trading cards to share with you today… you know how I love me some ATCs and you know I don’t trade ’em! These babies are going in my collection, lol!

I cut ATC card bases (measuring 2-1/2” x 3-1/2”) from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the corners of each. I picked out six different papers from the kit for the backgrounds and embellished each one with stickers from the included sticker sheet along with paper strips, washi tape and bling from my stash. These were so stinkin’ fun!

And one more peek at the set… so happy with how these turned out! The fun thing about working with kits is that everything coordinates!

Surf’s Up!

8/13/22 Top 3 at Inkspirational Challenges!

Hey everybody! Hope you’re having a great week! I mentioned in my post yesterday that I joined the design team for the ScrapbookingStore which boasts a FABulous monthly scrapbook kit subscription club that’s very affordable. The August kit is beach-themed and I’ve had the best time creating with it! I’m sharing a fun surf card today… you know how I love creating little scenes and I felt like a ride along the beach headed to the waves to go surfing was in order!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. I cut a layering panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and covered it with Eyelet Outlet wide sky and wide water washi tape and CutCardStock Brown Bag Kraft Paper to get the scene started.

I added a land line in the distance that I hand-cut from CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock, an Eyelet Outlet palm tree brad, and a yellow sun clip from the kit upgrades which I attached with a harlequin patterned brad from my stash. I added the beach bug and sentiment stickers from the sticker sheet included in the kit (sentiment popped up on foam squares) to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from patterned paper in the kit and embellished it with sentiment and surf board stickers from the sticker sheet included in the kit.

And one more peek… super happy with how this turned out! Sure brings back some fun memories – I didn’t surf but we used to drive up and down one of our semi-local beaches back in the day (late 70s) when it was allowed! ;)

Summer Sandal

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a great week and you’re surviving this heat… I sure am ready for some cooler weather! I’m delighted to share that I’ve been invited to join the design team for the ScrapbookingStore which boasts a monthly scrapbook kit subscription club, and I’m thrilled beyond words! I love kits and there are so many different kinds of projects that can be created with these collections. This month’s kit is beach-themed and features papers in pretty summery colors and patterns along with coordinating stickers and optional upgraded embellishments. I’m excited to share a summer sandal, one of several debut DT inspiration projects!

Using my flip flop template, I cut the midsole from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, the insole and straps from striped paper, and the sole and another set of straps (adhered to the underside of the striped paper straps) from beach ball paper in the kit. I used a Darice Chevron embossing folder and ran the sole through my Big Shot for a little texture like a real shoe sole. I adhered the pieces together and added a beach ball embellishment created with 1”, 1-1/4” and 1-1/2” circle punches along with two strips of Eyelet Outlet white pearl bling on each strap.

Here are a couple more shots. I’m SO smitten… these papers made an adorable little sandal!

Happy Birthday

Howdy everybody! Happy Monday – I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I’m proud to share that another one of my projects was Featured over at Scrapping4fun Challenges several weeks ago which scored me another guest gig – this time for Challenge #215 – Tags or Add a Tag on Your Creation! I love adding tags to my card fronts so I really enjoyed making this one! I had the Spellbinders Wild Hello June 2021 Kit of the Month in my stash so I pulled it out and decided to loosely CASE one of the card samples in the kit that I fell in love with. I used cardstock, a line die, patterned paper, die cut shapes (one being a tag which was in line with this challenge) and chipboard embellishments from the kit to create a birthday card.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from white cardstock in the Spellbinders kit along with a layering panel and strip from the patterned paper. I die cut the Happy Birthday line sentiment from black cardstock and adhered it to the seam of the patterned papers. I arranged a couple die cut shapes and several chipboard embellishments which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from white cardstock in the kit and embellished it with leftover strips of patterned paper and cardstock. I added a couple die cut shapes and layered the panel on black cardstock.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! The tag takes center stage with the die cut frame, and then comes the die cut sentiment and those chipboard embellishments! Love, love, love!
