Wishing you a purrfect holiday

Hi friends! Happy Saturday – I hope you have something fun planned this weekend! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Ally’s Angels and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #65! I created an adorable CAS hybrid kitty Christmas card featuring Jen Leeflang’s 7 Cats digital image! I also used sentiments from Simon Says Stamp Christmas Cats stamp set and created the card in neutrals with a pop of red! So stinkin’ cute!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base from CutcardStock Basis White and a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis Red. I printed the image on Basis White and colored it with alcohol markers. I trimmed it, rounded the upper left and lower right corners on both layering panels, and adhered them together. I stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Christmas Cats stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added several Eyelet Outlet White Enamel Dots, which completed the front.

I cut the inside panel from Basis White, rounded the upper left and lower right corners, and embellished it with Eyelet Outlet Skinny Red Washi Tape. I stamped another sentiment from the same stamp set in black ink and layered the panel on Basis Red cardstock.

Clean and Simple Thank You

Hey everybody! I hope you’re having a great weekend! Are you still stuffed from Thanksgiving?! LOL! I’ve popped in this morning to share a Kat Scrappiness Creative Influencer inspiration project with you! I created a clean and simple Thank You card featuring the Friendship Greetings stamp set along with the Silver Pearl Mix. Really loving how this turned out, and nobody can have too many thank you cards in their stash!

Card base is a standard A2 size top-folding cut from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. A sentiment and the largest floral image from the Friendship Greetings stamp set were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with alcohol markers. The finishing touch was adding several silver pearls from the Silver Pearl Mix.

The inside panel was cut from 80# Solar White cardstock, another sentiment from the Friendship Greetings stamp set stamped in black ink, and panel layered on CutCardStock Pop Tone Black Licorice cardstock.

Hi everyone! Happy Friday – I hope you’ve had a great week and you’re looking forward to doing something fun this weekend! I have an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project to share with you today. I’ve been in a ‘clean and simple’ mode and this Halloween card features the spider from Creepy Halloween, another stamp set from The Project Bin. That hilarious spider is the star of the show and the punched sentiment circles are the only layers on this card, and they were adhered with Tape Runner. This would be a great card to mass produce if you send out a lot of Halloween cards!

I cut a standard A2 size top folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock, and stamped the spider in the bottom right corner. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock and punched it with a 1-1/2″ Fiskars circle punch. I punched an additional circle from a CutCardStock Basis Orange cardstock scrap with a 1-3/4″ Stampin’ Up circle punch and adhered it beneath the sentiment circle and then to the card base. The finishing touch was the addition of several gemstones from an Eyelet Outlet 4mm Orange Jewel Bling Strip.

The inside was super simple as well, consisting of a strip cut from CutCardStock Basis Orange cardstock and a sentiment (from the same stamp set) stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day – they sure do roll around fast these days! I’ve stopped in this morning to share an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project! I created a clean and simple Halloween card featuring the adorable Cool Ghoul stamps and dies from The Project Bin, and of course, the ghosts were adhered with Tape Runner, and I even put a strip under the washi tape (on the front and inside) for good measure! This card couldn’t have been any easier, and I LOVE how it turned out!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock. I stamped the two ghosts from the Cool Ghoul stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on scraps of Solar White cardstock and cut them with the coordinating dies. I adhered a strip of Doodlebug Design Beetle Black Swiss Dots Washi Tape to anchor the ghosts on, and stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) just to the right of it. I adhered the two ghosts and added a few Eyelet Outlet Black Enamel Dots, which completed the card front.

I adhered a strip of Doodlebug Design Beetle Black Swiss Dots Washi Tape to the top of the inside flap and stamped another sentiment from the Cool Ghoul stamp set in Tuxedo Black ink.

Clean and Simple Hello

Hi everyone! Okay, we’ve zoomed through another month and I’ll say it again… where is the time going?! I’ve popped in this morning to share an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project! This pretty clean and simple mini slimline card features acrylic block stamping along with the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Scalloped Edge dies, and of course, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner. I know I’ve mentioned (several times, lol) that I’m thrilled to have found mini slimline dies for my go-to size of 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slim cards! Kat Scrappiness also carries pre-made envelopes (AND envelope dies!) for this size card which makes me really happy! This is the legal size to mail through the post office and the only size mini slim that I make. ;)

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner. Wet glue was used only to adhere the pearls. I cut a top-folding mini slimline card base from two panels of 110# Solar White cardstock. Next, I die cut a scalloped panel from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Azalea cardstock (using a Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Scalloped Edge die) and a layering panel from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Eris cardstock. I inked a 2″ square acrylic block with Catherine Pooler It’s A Girl ink, spritzed it with my Tim Holtz distress sprayer and stamped it onto the Eris cardstock panel. Once dry, I stamped the bouquets and sentiment from the Scrapbook.com Friendly Bouquets stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the flowers with a pink acrylic paint pen. The finishing touch was adding several gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Morganite Muse Embellishment Mix with my Trinity Pick Up Stick.

For the inside, I die cut another scalloped panel from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Azalea cardstock using a Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Scalloped Edge die along with a layering panel from 80# Solar White cardstock, and adhered them together. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in black ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base.

And one more look… totally loving how this card turned out! I love the simplicity of stamping with an acrylic block, and of course, the confidence that everything will hold together beautifully with Tape Runner! ;)

Coffee Time Holiday Card

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend and your week has started off nicely! I’ve popped in today to share an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project! I created a clean and simple almost one layer caffeinated Christmas card featuring Waffle Flower stamps and dies and a strip of washi tape. And, of course, all elements were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner! I paper pieced the coffee cup with green glitter and patterned paper. This was such a simple card to create and would be a fun one to mass produce for those on your Christmas card list!

As mentioned above, all elements were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner (even a line of adhesive under the washi tape). I cut a standard A2 size top folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock, rounded the bottom right corner, and applied a strip of Eyelet Outlet Fun Pattern Washi Tape toward the bottom. I stamped the coffee cup on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock using the Waffle Flower Coffee Time stamp set and cut it with the coordinating Waffle Flower Coffee Time die set. I stamped the cup again on green glitter paper and on green plaid paper, then fussy cut and paper pieced the cup and sleeve which I adhered to the bottom right of the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Memento Bamboo Leaves ink and added several red gemstones from Eyelet Outlet.

The inside was equally as easy as the front. ;) I applied a strip of the same washi tape used on the front (with a line of Tape Runner adhesive under it) and stamped a sentiment from The Project Bin Merriest Christmas stamp set in green ink.

And one more look… super happy with this CAS caffeinated Christmas card! Say that fast three times, lol!

Scrappy hugs,

Keep calm GNOME MATTER what.

Hey everybody! What have you planned for this weekend coming up? Hopefully something fun! Our new challenge launched this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #69 – Anything Goes! I’m absolutely in love with gnomes, and the adorable guys on this motivational mini slimline card are from the Stampingbella Gnomes Have Feelings Too stamp set… another stamp set I’ve had for a bit and have never used. Every new year I tell myself that I need to crack the plastic on some of the stamp sets and dies in my stash that have never seen the light of day, and I think I’ve started this new year off right! ;)

I cut my go-to mini slimline size of 3-1/2″ x 6″ landscape top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock. I stamped the three gnomes and sentiment from the Stampingbella Gnomes Have Feelings Too stamp set in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink and colored them with alcohol markers. I clipped the corners with the Tonic Corner Punch and adhered the panel to the red cardstock panel and then to the card base. It doesn’t get much easier than this! ;)

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Brutus Monroe Groovy Friend stamp set in black ink. I clipped the corners and adhered the panel to a CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock layer and then to the inside of the card base.

And one more peek… love this CAS design with some of the cutest little guys ever! ;)

These shoes were made for walkin’

Hi friends! Happy Fri-YAY! Today is the 1st of July and you know what that means… lots of posts! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #60 – Anything Goes + optional CAS! I know I’ve mentioned before that I used to be very intimidated by a clean and simple design, but over the past few years I’ve grown to love it! And remember, the technique twist is not ever mandatory to play in our challenges! I created a fun shoe-themed card using a Bugaboo heels image from my digital image arsenal. Bugaboo may be closed but their images will go on forever! ;)

I cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis White 110# cardstock. I printed the heels digital image on CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock and cut it with my Scan N Cut along with several additional plain die cuts which I adhered together for some dimension. I colored the image with pink and black alcohol markers and added a little sparkle overlay to the black ribbon. Using the My Favorite Things Stitched Ric Rac Die-namics die, I die cut a strip of ric rac from CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock, and adhered it across the bottom of the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Paper Pretties Sassy Shoes stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink just under the ric rac on the right side. I adhered the shoe just above the ric rac and added several tiny pink gemstones to complete the card front.

Using the same ric rac die, I die cut a strip of ric rac from Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock and adhered it across the top of the inside flap, and then stamped the sentiment from the same Sassy Shoes stamp set just below it.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! It’s definitely CAS and it’s almost a one-layer card, lol!

Happy Birthday to you

Hi everyone! Can’t you believe it’s the last flippin’ day of June already?! The year is half over and it’ll be Christmas before we know it! :D I have a super adorable Tape Runner DT inspiration project to share with you today…. a clean and simple child birthday card featuring the Lawn Fawn Duh-Nuh stamps and dies, and of course, all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner. I donated this one to Cards for Cubs. ;)

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner. Wet glue was used only to adhere small elements. I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock along with a layering panel from The Paper Cut blue crinkle paper. I used the My Favorite Things Slimline Ocean Motion die to cut the top off the blue crinkle paper layer and adhered it to the card base. I stamped the shark, bubbles and small fish from the Lawn Fawn Duh-Nuh stamp set in Catherine Pooler Jack Black ink, colored them with alcohol markers, and cut them with the coordinating Lawn Fawn Duh-Nuh dies. I stamped a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Tiny Tag Sayings: Birthday stamp set in black ink in the bottom right corner, and then adhered the die cut elements.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock and embellished it with a narrow strip of CutCardStock Basis Medium Blue cardstock and a shark fin stamped from the Lawn Fawn Duh-Nuh stamp set which I colored with alcohol markers and cut with the coordinating Lawn Fawn Duh-Nuh die. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Catherine Pooler Black Jack ink and layered the panel on medium blue cardstock.

And one more look… such an adorable card created from a super simple design! And like I always say, it definitely helps to have great adhesive to hold everything together!

Sitting Here Missing You

Hey everybody! Happy Friday to you! I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned! I am attending my first cardmaker summit tomorrow (starting at 8:00 AM Mountain Time) and I’m very excited about joining the livestreams to see demonstrations from several well known stamp companies. We couldn’t livestream or watch videos at all without constant interruptions with the horribly slow satellite internet we previously had. Switching ISPs back in January was a smart decision – we didn’t know there were any other options available in this little town or we would have done it sooner, lol! I’ve popped in this morning to share the very first project I created back in April for the Prickley Pear Stamps new release! This super sweet ‘missing you’ card features the Chicken Gal Pals stamp set and is a quick and easy design.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from 80# Solar White cardstock, and rounded the bottom right corner of both. I stamped the chicken and her nest on a Solar White cardstock scrap in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored them with alcohol markers, and fussy cut them. I stamped chicken wire down the left side of the layering panel in Delicata Golden Glitz ink and added a strip of Eyelet Outlet Skinny Red Washi Tape. I adhered the fussy cut chicken and nest, and then stamped the sentiment in black ink. The finishing touch was adding several Studio Katia Sparkling Crystals.

And one more peek… I’m loving this clean and simple card design created with a most adorable stamp set!
