You’re the Sweetest

Hi everyone! Well, another week has come and gone and we find ourselves busting into another weekend! I hope you have something fun planned! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a sweet friendship card featuring our new Cupcake Swirl Brads that hit the store last week! Don’t these look super yummy?! I paired them with White Enamel Dots on the front and used a little bit of Valentine Washi Tape on the inside. This easy design is just the ticket if you need some uplifting friendship cards in your stash!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base and layering strip from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock along with a pink patterned paper layering panel and strip from one of my favorites, The Paper Studio Tattered and Worn paper pad. I rounded the bottom right corner of the card base and layering panel, and adhered the panels to the card base. I adhered the strips together, added three Cupcake Swirl Brads toward the top, and adhered the strip vertically to the card base. The final step to complete the front was adding a die cut digital sentiment embellished with White Enamel Dots.

I cut a short panel for the inside from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, embellished it with strips of Valentine Washi Tape and stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Everyday Greetings stamp set, and layered it on a patterned paper layer.

And one more peek… such a fun friendship card that could be used for a variety of occasions! I’m in love with these cupcake brads!

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! We’ve had another busy week with doctor appointments for both Ed and I, and I’m feverishly playing catch-up, lol! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a festive and fun CAS Christmas card featuring our Santa Hat Brads, Santa Suit Brads and Snowflake Brads!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a stitched rectangle die cut for the background from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock. I die cut the ‘jolly’ word from red glitter sheet and adhered it to the stitched panel. I added a Santa Hat Brad and and two boots from the Santa Suit Brads, along with several Snowflake Brads, and then adhered the panel to the card base.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of red glitter sheet. I stamped the sentiment in black ink and cut it with a small stitched rectangle die. I added a Santa Suit Brad in the lower left corner and layered the panel on CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock.

And one more look… super happy with how this turned out – super festive and super easy! ;)

Just Because

Hi everyone! It’s Friday and I swear they roll around so darn fast these days, lol! I hope you’ve had a great week! Our new challenge launched this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m delighted to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #63 – October Anything Goes! I created a clean and simple card featuring a pretty gold heat embossed 3-Flower Collage image stamped with an old Stamp Camp stamp that my late sister gifted me a number of years ago. This stamp definitely has some sentimental value.

I created a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel for the front which I adhered to a CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock panel. I stamped the 3-Flower Collage image in Versamark and heat embossed it in Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold embossing powder. I trimmed the stamped image, layered it on CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock, and colored the negative spaces of the branches and flowers with fine point Pitt Artist pens, connecting the squares with the branches. I adhered a cardinal brad to each collage square and adhered the panel to the bottom of the card base. I stamped the sentiment in red ink and added three small red flat-back pearls.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished the bottom of the panel with cardinal washi tape and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock cardstock, stamped the sentiment in red ink, and layered the panel on the red cardstock.

And one more look… I’m smitten with this stamped image embossed in gold!

season’s greetings

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you have a great day and a great weekend with something fun planned! Our new challenge is live over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m super excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #39 – October Anything Christmas Goes! I created a pair of adorable cards that are almost identical – the only difference is what’s on top of the little car! I just had to use both of those elements! Some more older Lawn Fawn stamps and dies that I absolutely love!

I created two standard A2 size top-fold card bases from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the lower right corner on each. I stamped the car twice and both of the elements on a scrap of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers and cut them with the coordinating dies. I created the background on each card base with a strip of Eyelet Outlet Road Washi Tape and a Memory Box Cityscape cut from CutCardStock Dolphin cardstock. I stamped the exhaust hearts on the washi tape in Jet Black StazOn, adhered the elements to the top of each car, and adhered the cars to the road on dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment beneath the road and added a single iridescent gemstone on each.

I stamped the sentiment in black ink and added a narrow red cardstock strip down the left side for a little interest. The inside is the same on both cards, and I used the Stampingbella gnome sentiments stamp set again… funny how the gnome sentiments are coming in so handy for non-gnome cards, lol!

And one more peek at the pair… totally loving how these turned out! They are so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it!

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, CutCardStock Dolphin cardstock, red cardstock scrap

thank you so much

Hi everyone! A big ole’ Happy Friday to you all! I hope you’ve had a great week and have something fun planned this weekend! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m delighted to be back on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a clean and simple thank you card featuring the Birch Press Design Petal Triangle Layer Set that I used in a very bright and bold fashion with a red, orange and yellow color combo! I love me some color but I have to admit that I wasn’t sure about this when I started it, but the longer I looked at the finished card the more I like it! It’s extremely rare that I don’t have some white in my cards and this has absolutely no white whatsoever!

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis Gold cardstock which I adhered to the card base. Using the Birch Press Design Petal Triangle Layer Set, I cut the three pieces from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Orange cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Gold cardstock, adhered them together, and adhered the piece to the card front. I stamped the sentiment in orange ink and added some gemstones to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis Gold cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Orange cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Gold cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in orange ink and layered the panel on the orange cardstock.

And one more peek… such a simple design that really packs a powerful punch with the bright colors! This Petal Triangle Layer Set is amazing and I highly recommend any of the Birch Press Design layer sets!

Happy Summer Days

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday – I hope you’re having a wonderful week! Hard to believe we’ve surpassed the middle of August already but I have to admit that I’m so ready for Fall and Winter to get here! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring white cardstock, which is on sale this month (along with ivory – so be sure to stock up!) that I paired with red and green cardstock and a little bit of washi tape. Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created a super fun CAS Summer card boasting a picnic table with some handmade watermelon slices. I have several watermelon slice dies but they were too small for this card so I created my own with circle dies and a black marker… and what picnic is complete without little ants?!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a strip for the bottom from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock which I covered in some red heart washi tape and made into a picnic table. I did my ‘thing’ of rounding the bottom right corner. I die cut green and red circles from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock and CutCardStock Bonsai Green cardstock and layered them together, then cut them in half and cut one of the halves in half to make three slices of watermelon. I think I’ve forgotten to mention that I had to replace my Big Shot about six weeks ago because I wore the old one slam out! Have you ever heard of wearing out a Big Shot?! I guess after 11 years I got my money’s worth out of it, lol! The new one cuts like a dream. I had gotten several Magic Mats a while back and they make such a difference in cutting, pllus they save a ton in cutting plates! Okay, back to the card… I added watermelon seeds with a black Flair marker, added ant brads to each slice, and adhered two of them to the picnic table. I stamped the sentiment in black ink, and the finishing touch was adding several red gemstones.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock and embellished it with the red heart washi tape and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, stamped the sentiment and added the remaining slice of watermelon, and layered the panel on the red cardstock.

And one more look… super happy with how this turned out! What a great Summer card created with amazing cardstock, and it was so easy to put together!

season’s tweetings

Hi everyone! Top of the morning to you! I hope you are having an absolutely wonderful weekend! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #37 – August Anything Christmas Goes! I created a clean and simple card featuring three of the most adorable little birds ever – and they are singing Christmas carols! These are older Lawn Fawn stamps and dies, and I just love them!

I created a standard A2 size top-fold card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the lower right corner. I stamped the birds, leaves and musical notes in black ink on a scrap of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and colored them with alcohol markers, stamped the branch in brown ink, and cut them all with the coordinating dies. I adhered the branch and musical notes directly to the card base and popped the birds up on small dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in black ink just beneath the branch and added a single iridescent gemstone for a little interest.

I stamped the inside sentiment (from a Stampingbella gnome sentiments stamp set of all things, lol!) in black ink and added a strip of light teal cardstock down the left side for a little interest.

And one more look… I’m so smitten with these little birds I can’t stand it! And I’m loving CAS more and more every day!

eat more bananas

Hi everyone! A big ol’ Happy Friday to you! I hope you’ve had an exceptional week! Can you believe we’re headed into August already?! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m delighted to be back on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created an adorable clean and simple birthday card featuring the super cute Elizabeth Crafts Jungle Leaves die set carried in the store. I originally thought child birthday (specifically one of our youngest grands) but I know some adults who would love it, too! ;)

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and a slightly larger layering panel from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock, and rounded the bottom right corner on all the pieces. I stamped that adorable little monkey, his bananas, and the sentiment in brown ink on the layering panel, colored them with alcohol markers and adhered the panels to the card base. I stamped his right hand a second time on a scrap piece of white cardstock, colored it, fussy cut it, and set it aside to later paper-piece onto the vine. Using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Jungle Leaves die set, I die cut vines and leaves from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock, layered them together for a little dimension, and adhered them to the card front. The finishing touch was paper-piecing that tiny little fussy-cut hand onto the vine with the Crystal Katana Pick-Up & Glue Tool. I LOVE this tool for maneuvering small paper-pieced items into place!

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of the green cardstock, stamped the sentiment in green ink and layered the panel on CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock.

And one more peek… what an adorable card! The die cut jungle leaves worked perfectly with this stamp set! Love it when that happens!

Pair of Happy Birthday To You cards

Happy Monday, everybody! Hope you have a great week coming up! This is my last guest designer post for Make the Cards Challenge, and I thank Jill and the rest of the gang for this fun guest gig! I’ve had a great time! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m thrilled to share my inspiration project for MTCC #23 – Sketch Challenge! Who doesn’t love a sketch, especially when it’s an awesome CAS sketch?!

I know I’ve mentioned previously (multiple times, lol) that I’m navigating more toward clean and simple these days than I ever have. This sketch really spoke to me so I decided to make a pair of cards that are the same on the front but have different sentiments inside.

I cut two standard size top folding A2 card bases from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the bottom right corner which I frequently like to do! I’m quirky like that, lol! I cut two stitched circles from CutCardStock Curious Metallic White Silver cardstock and adhered one to the bottom right quadrant of each card base. I stamped the hibiscus flowers, buds and leaves (two of each) on Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock as well, and adhered a set to the stitched circle die cut on each card base. I stamped the sentiment twice in purple ink on a scrap of white cardstock, trimmed them, and adhered one to each card.

As mentioned above, the inside sentiments are different on each card.

And one more peek… totally loving how these turned out! Super simple card design that could easily be mass produced for a set to give as a gift!

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, CutCardStock Curious Metallic White Silver cardstock
Stamps: Altenew Build-A-Flower Hibiscus stamp set, Simon Says Stamp Birthday Messages stamp set
Ink: Memento New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves, Cottage Ivy, Olive Grove, Lulu Lavender, Sweet Plum, Grape Jelly, Elderberry, Lilac Posies and Peanut Brittle ink
Dies/Punches: Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers die, Altenew Build-A-Flower Hibiscus die set
Accessories: Tonic Studios 12″ Guillotine Paper Trimmer, Bearly Art precision craft glue, MISTI stamp tool, Big Shot

Joy

Hi everyone! Hope the weather is decent where you are and it hasn’t gotten too hot yet! It’s warming up here but with little to no humidity, it’s more easily tolerated. Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #51 – Anything Goes + Aperture! We are a technique challenge blog and all of our challenges are ‘anything goes’ with an optional technique twist each month given to inspire you! This month the twist is an aperture, which is any shaped opening in your project. Just remember that the twist is not mandatory to play! I’m still in Christmas mode so this peek-a-boo die and my favorite poinsettia die were the first two things that came to mind! This design came together pretty quickly!

I created a standard A2 top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel cut from CutCardStock Curious Metallic White Silver cardstock and a piece of white craft foam. Using the My Favorite Things Die-namics Rectangle Peek-A-Boo Window die, I die cut the aperture in the white silver panel and the craft foam, and adhered them together. I cut a rectangle from CutCardStock Bonsai cardstock which I adhered behind the aperture, and then adhered the piece to the card base.

I added the ‘Joy’ sentiment using silver glitter alpha stickers along with some small green gemstones for a little interest. Using the Hero Arts Paper Layering Poinsettia die set, I cut the poinsettia from CutCardStock Silver Glitter cardstock and the leaves from Papertrey Ink New Leaf cardstock, assembled it and added Nuvo Bottle Green Crystal Drops to the center. I set it aside until the Crystal Drops were dry, and then adhered it to the card front, at the bottom left of the aperture.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, embellished it with a strip of the Papertrey Ink New Leaf cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the Prickley Pear Stamps Christmas Trees clear stamp set in green ink, and layered the panel on CutCardStock Bonsai cardstock.

And one more look… I absolutely love this poinsettia die and have used it many times. It makes such an elegant Christmas card!
