I picked all my colors of cardstock, cut all the pieces from the cut file, and commenced to gluing, lol!

Despite the complex look, it really was not difficult at all.

Scalloped Thanks Note Card

Hello, my crafty friends! A very Happy Hump Day to you all! I’ve been playing again and I’m happy to share a beautiful Simply Crafty SVGs DT inspiration project I created with the free Scallop Thanks Card cut file! What a fun card – and this would be a great one to mass produce in different colors and patterns to have in your card stash!

2018_02110014a

I’ve had this double-sided K & Co. paper in my stash for quite some time and I was happy to use several sheets from the pad. Green and pink is one of my favorite color combos.

2018_02110015a

I left the inside blank to write a custom message.

Surf Shack

Hello, my crafty friends! I am so excited to share my latest DT inspiration project for Simply Crafty SVGs – a Surf Shack! I am so in love with how this turned out! I used the Love Shack cut file, along with elements from these cut files: Surfer’s Paradise Card (surf board and tree), Fishing Boat Box (life preserver) and Mountain Camping Box Card (chair). OMG… I cannot even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this!

2018_05130001a

As part of the transformation of this cut file from Love Shack to Surf Shack, all of the walls, roof shingles and door pieces are stamped with a woodgrain background stamp which I thought added a fun touch. I added ‘rope’ to the life preserver and sparkle overlay marker to the surf board for some shimmer.

2018_05130002a

Here are a few more shots from all angles. I just LOVE this! Squeal! ;)


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory, White, Dark Chocolate, Black Onyx, Cherry Red, Grass Green, Wild Dandelion and Tomato Soup cardstock
Stamps: Stampin’ Up Hardwood background stamp
Ink: Memento Espresso Truffle ink, Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear Sparkle Overlay marker

remember to play

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #13 – Anything Goes + Emboss Resist! Remember, our challenges are always ‘anything goes’ with an added optional technique twist to inspire you! I created my card using scraps of embossed paper that I had out for another project, so you can imagine this worked up very quickly. Love it when that happens, lol!

2018_04300005a

I inked the embossed paper using the DTP (direct to paper) technique for nice rich colors. I layered the elements and adhered the flower, a file tab and sentiment word sticker.

2018_04300006a

I left the inside blank to write my own sentiment.

2018_04300007a

One final shot showing the dimension. I’m very pleased with how this turned out!

Discover The World

Hi everyone! It’s the 1st of the month and you’ll be seeing several posts from me this morning! I’m posting the new May Shape Shift challenge today on the a2z Scrapbooking blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project using the Hero Arts Vintage Travel Digital Kit and the Hero Arts Summer Travel Labels! I’ve had this shaped card die set in my stash for ages and finally pulled it out to use it for this challenge. Not sure why I haven’t used it yet because I love it!

2018_04300001a

I used the map overlay for the background. I printed elements from both the Vintage Travel and Summer Travel Labels for the focal point on the front of the card which I adhered to foam.

2018_04300002a

For the inside, I created a sentiment on the computer and layered it in the same angle as the arrows on the front.

2018_04300003a

And here’s one final shot. I think I like this, lol! ;)

Watercolor Poppies

Hi everyone! Happy first day of May! Our May challenge is live this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #22 – May Anything Goes! I got out some Rubbernecker stamps and created a card featuring watercolor stamping on photo paper! OMG, these stamps are amazing! Lots of people can watercolor beautifully… but not me… so I rely on these stamps, lol!

2017_07130030a

 

Super fun and easy card. I chose chocolate brown for the card base and layered white and cherry red cardstock panels on it. I die cut some angled stitched border elements on the red panel before adhering them. I stamped the poppies in Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick distress ink and the stems in Walnut Stain and Espresso Truffle ink on the photo paper, and then cut it with a slightly angled stitched oval die. I affixed the panel to the card front on red foam and added White Gloss Crystal Drops and a tiny red seam ribbon bow.

2017_07130031a

 

I decorated the inside with leftover strips of the red and chocolate brown cardstock, then stamped the adorable Winnie the Pooh quote. I am absolutely smitten with this, lol!

2017_07130032a

 

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: GKD Dark Chocolate, White and Cherry Red cardstock, Canon Photo Paper
Stamps: Rubbernecker Poppy Bunch stamp set and Stay There Forever sentiment stamp
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink- Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Walnut Stain; Memento Espresso Truffle ink

Good Luck

Hi everyone! Can you believe we’re fast approaching the middle of this year, lol?! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #109 – Anything Goes! We’re being sponsored this month by DRS Designs so be sure to come over and play for a chance to win a prize! I used the very cool See You Later, Alligator stamp as the focal image for my Pull Tab Slider Card. You know I love my fun folds and I thoroughly enjoyed this one, as you can only imagine! My inspiration came from my friend Dawn (yep, once again) HERE.

2018_04300009a

I stamped the sentiment as the focal point in black ink on green cardstock and cut it with a square die. I cut a slightly larger square die cut in black glitter paper and then a postage stamp die cut in the green cardstock, and layered them all together.

2018_04300010a

Here’s the fun part of this card – the pull tab mechanism with the Good Luck sentiment. As you pull the tab, the sentiment slides over to the right. Super cute!

2018_04300011a

And here’s a shot of the inside which I left blank to write a custom sentiment.
