Thinking of You

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and either relaxing or doing something fun – whichever suits! To those who have jumped on the affiliate links train – I’ve been told that the FTC is issuing fines to people who are not properly disclosing affiliate links, so it probably would be a good idea to tell your readers that your blog posts contain affiliate links before you list the affiliate links in your posts. I’ve been doing this all along, but have decided that it shouldn’t be one of the first things people see when they read my posts, so I’ve moved it to the bottom of my posts going forward. Cleaner posts with less work = happier me, LOL!

I have a pretty CAS get well card to share this morning that I created for Prickley Pear Stamps which features the Flourish Border stamp set and Stitched Scallop Border die set. These stamp sets are so much fun with those little curves that really add some sassy pizzazz to this card! And I’m so in love with that sentiment font!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with two narrow curved borders each from CutCardStock Basis Light Lime and CutCardStock Royal Sundance Linen Midnight Blue cardstock using the Stitched Scallop Border die set. I stamped a curved row of flowers from the Flourish Border stamp set in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink on a scrap piece of 80# Solar White cardstock, cut it with dies from the Stitched Scallop Border die set, and colored it with Karin Brushmarkers.

I adhered the stamped border and the narrow curved borders to the bottom front of the card base and stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) in Catherine Pooler Juniper ink. The finishing touch was adding gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Andradite Sparkle Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick Up Stick.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from CutCardStock Royal Sundance Linen Midnight Blue and CutCardStock Basis Light Lime cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Catherine Pooler Juniper ink and layered the panel on the midnight blue cardstock.

And one more look… love how this card turned out! This is a great stamp set to use for creating cards for a variety of occasions. These flowers – and the sentiment font – just make me happy!

Hey everybody! Hope you had a good weekend and your week is off to a nice start! I tell you what… March 1st sure got here fast, lol! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Another one of my projects was a Featured Creation over at Scrapping4fun Challenges so I’ve once again been invited to guest design, this time for Challenge 210 – Something with Watercolors! I created a watercolored panel for the front of this clean and simple get well card, and I actually attempted my first process video while creating the watercolored panel… and my dang brush kept losing bristles on the wet panel! So the camera got turned off and the brush went into the garbage! Bahahaha! I’ll try again soon, so stay tuned! :D

I created a narrow watercolored panel from Ranger Distress Watercolor cardstock and Ranger salty ocean, peacock feathers, mowed lawn and mustard seed distress inks. I used the heat tool to ensure that it was dry before stamping the floral image from the STAMPlorations Beautiful You stamp set in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink. I then layered the panel on CutCardStock Royal Linen Eclipse cardstock. I cut a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock and rounded the bottom right corner. I adhered the watercolored panel to the card base along with a sentiment from Taylored Expressions Simple strips In Reverse – Everyday Occasions cut with the coordinating Taylored Expressions Simple Strips – Asymmetrical die. The finishing touch was adding several gemstones from Trinity Stamps Melanite Magic Embellishment Mix with the Trinity Pick Up Stick.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a wide strip of CutCardStock Pearl Canvas Textured Surf cardstock layered on CutCardStock Royal Linen Eclipse cardstock. I added another sentiment from Taylored Expressions Simple strips In Reverse – Everyday Occasions cut with the coordinating Taylored Expressions Simple Strips – Asymmetrical die, and layered the panel on the smooth side of the surf cardstock.

And one more peek… I’m so smitten with this card! I’m telling you, less really is more sometimes! Love how this turned out!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday – here’s to a wonderful week! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring the amazing Classic Crest cardstock which is on sale this month. I love it and it’s a staple in my studio! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Most of my card bases are created from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock – there is no better cardstock for a card base! This birthday card is clean and simple, and has a dimensional paper pieced die cut rose with a little pink and green tone on tone going on!

NOTE: The supply chain issues with the Classic Crest and Linen cardstock that I mentioned a couple weeks ago are still ongoing so I wanted to remind everyone. Some other really good options that I can personally vouch for, which I have in my stash also, are 110# Basis White, 80# Basis White, 65# Pop-Tone Sweet Tooth and Royal Sundance 80# Fiber White.

This Papertrey Ink Noted: Scalloped A2 Die Collection is an oldie and one of my favorites, and I thought it would make a really pretty and dainty birthday card in pale pink and pale green which is one of my favorite color combos. And there’s a lot to be said about the pop of black on pastels! I cut the card base from Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock and layered a stitched rectangle cut from Curious Metallic Aloe 111# cardstock with a stitched oval with debossed scallops cut from Curious Metallic Pink Quartz 111# cardstock. The rose (another old die in my stash) is paper pieced using the green and pink cardstock with four layered outlines cut from Curious Metallic Night 111# cardstock for some hefty dimension. I placed the rose in the upper left corner and positioned it where the pink rose was on the pink oval and the green leaves were on the green rectangle for a tone on tone effect. I cut the sentiment twice from the black cardstock and layered one on top of the other for just a little dimension. I finished the front with three small gold rim pink pearls.

I cut/embossed a pink frame with debossed scallops for the inside which I adhered to a white cardstock oval and adhered to a green rectangle. I stamped the sentiment in black ink leaving some room for a signature.

And one more look… really loving how this turned out! Love me some pink and green – and this shimmery cardstock on a Classic Crest card base is THE BEST!

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! 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 super sweet CAS-ish card featuring our Turtle Brads and Pearl Bling Multi Size Green! There’s something about a tag on the front of card… and especially a tag with a super cute turtle and a pun-y sentiment! This is so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it! And sometimes less is definitely more!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis White 110# cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock and a green dotted pattern from the Stamp Anniething Summer Tropics 6×6 double-sided papers. I die cut a tag from CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock using the CUTplorations Stitched Tags Nesting Dies and stamped the sentiment in green ink. I added a couple strips cut from the green cardstock to the bottom of the tag, added the Turtle Brad and a tiny heart punched from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Cotton Candy cardstock. I added some green crafting cord to the tag before adhering it to the card front, and then added some Green Pearl Bling to finish it off.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock and embellished it with a wide strip of the green dotted patterned paper used on the front. I stamped the sentiment in green ink and layered the panel on CutCardStock Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock cardstock.

And one more look… so very happy with how this turned out! These turtle brads are super adorable and this little guy paired perfectly with the stamp set!

Fall Harvest

Happy Hump Day, everybody! Hope you’re having a great week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Our last challenge of the year is live over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #65 – December Anything Goes! I have another pretty Fall card I created with Prickley Pear Stamps Oak & Maple Leaf stamp set and coordinating Oak & Maple Leaf die set. These leaves made such a pretty clean and simple card which I’m loving more and more these days! And this card would be so easy to mass produce to create a set to give as a gift!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, rounded the bottom right corner and stamped the sentiment in brown ink. I tied a piece of twine around a strip of corrugated kraft cardstock and adhered it to the front of the card base with foam pads. Using the Prickley Pear Stamps Oak & Maple Leaf stamp set and coordinating Oak & Maple Leaf die set I stamped four leaves in different colors and cut them with the coordinating die. I arranged them on the front of the card and adhered them with foam pads. The finishing touch was the addition of several gold flat-back pearls.

I stamped the inside sentiment in brown ink and that was it… no layers which is very unusual for me!

And one more peek… so loving this card! I think it rates right up there with a few of my other all-time favorites!

Let’s Get Together

Hi friends! And this is the fourth project I’m showcasing for the Trinity Ambassador “A Few of Our Favorite Things” Social Media Hop on Instagram starting at 6:00 AM PST this morning and ending at 11:59 PM PST on Friday, December 3rd! My main post is HERE. This is a clean and simple friendship card that is almost a one-layer card. I did add a panel behind the front flap so I’d have something to adhere the negative space of the cut-out to. Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! This card features the Cafe Cup Cutout Die with sentiments from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set. It’s a super easy one that would be awesome to mass-produce to have several in your stash!

For your chance to win a $20 gift card to the Trinity Stamps store, be sure to hop along with us on Instagram, starting at @trinitystampsllc – there will be a ton of inspiration! Winners will be announced on the Trinity Stamps blog by December 5th! Have fun hopping!


I cut a 5″ square top-folding card base and an extra panel from CutCardStock Royal Sundance Felt Natural cardstock. I die cut the cup into the front flap using the Cafe Cup Cutout Die and adhered the extra panel behind the front flap. I die cut the cup once more from CutCardStock Curious Metallic Chestnut cardstock and adhered the negative space into the cut-out on the front flap. I stamped the front sentiment from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set in brown ink and added some clear gemstones that I colored with a brown alcohol marker to complete the front.

I stamped the inside sentiment from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set in brown ink directly on the inside flap without doing any layering. Very unusual for me, lol!

And one more look… super happy with how this turned out! As I mentioned above, this card would be super easy to mass-produce to have several in your stash!

Under the Mistletoe

12/1/21 Top Pick at ABC Christmas Challenge!

Hi friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday! I started mine off taking photos in my studio, so you know I’m having a good one! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m one of those who makes extra cards all year long, in a variety of themes, and stash them away until I need them. Oftentimes, they’ll either be used for challenges that arise or for random design team projects if I happen to change my other mind (since I typically work way ahead on DT projects), lol. I’m sharing this card in The Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge where our sponsor is Twinkle Lane Designs and the challenge is to Add Buttons and/or Bows. This sprig of mistletoe is ‘tied’ together with a bow, so win-win!

I cut a mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and layering panels using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set cut from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock. Using black, green and two different red inks, I stamped the mistletoe, bow and sentiment (all from the STAMPlorations Layered Mistletoe stamp set) on the white cardstock layering panel. I adhered the panels together and then to the card base. I added several dots of white gloss Crystal Drops to finish the front panel.

I die cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with narrow strips of CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock at the top and bottom of the panel, stamped the sentiment in red ink, and layered the panel on a die cut panel cut from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! I’m in love with all of STAMPlorations’ layered stamp sets! The whimsical nature of the images is just so fun!

Merry Christmas Camper

11/30/21 November Rising Star at A Place To Start!

Hi everyone! It’s Monday already and I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge is live over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #40 – November Anything Christmas Goes! I created another clean and simple card and this one is near and dear to my heart – hubby and I were full-time RVers for nearly four years and just sold our fifth wheel last year. We sure had some good times and met some awesome people! This was a super fun project created with Prickley Pear Stamps Ham Camper Winter stamp set and Prickley Pear Stamps Ham Camper stamp set along with the coordinating Ham Camper die set!

I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a slightly smaller layering panel. Using the Prickley Pear Stamps Ham Camper Winter stamp set and Prickley Pear Stamps Ham Camper stamp set, I stamped the camper and elements on a scrap of Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers and then cut them with the Ham Camper die set, and then adhered the awning and door to the camper. I applied a strip of Eyelet Outlet Grass Washi Tape across the bottom of the front panel and adhered the camper. I adhered the panel to the card base, stamped the sentiment above the camper, and added three red gold rim flat-back pearls.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and kept it fairly CAS as well – embellished it with a narrow strip of red cardstock, stamped the sentiment and candy cane, and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more peek… what a fun card for that RVer on your Christmas card list!

You’re So Pawsome!

Hi friends! It’s Hump Day and it’s Day 3 of the 2021 Cat Lovers Hop and I’ve popped in this morning with fun cat-themed mini slim thank you card! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! The Hop is going on until the 30th, so if you’re a fellow cat lover, come join us! There’s a lot of fun and games to join in every day, and Janis has lined up some pretty amazing prizes to give away at the end!

I’ve been on a mini slimline kick lately so I created a CAS thank you card in a gray and white color combo featuring a pretty Siamese-looking kitty. I actually got a set of mini slimline layers dies a couple weeks ago but didn’t use them for this card because I rounded the bottom right corner and I just didn’t want to do that with die layers. The 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slim size is legal to mail at the post office whereas the 3″ x 6″ mini slim size is not, so I’ve been making my card bases the slightly larger width and the layer dies are not as readily found as the 3″ x 6″ size which makes no sense to me. Whoever started the 3″ x 6″ size mini slim trend didn’t do their homework, lol!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ side-folding mini slimline card base and layering panel from CutCardStock Basis White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis Gray cardstock and strip from Hot Off The Press light gray gingham paper, rounding the bottom right corner of the card base and layering panels. I stamped the cat image and sentiment in light gray ink and colored the cat with a lighter gray alcohol marker. I adhered a layered strip across the top of the white panel and added gray enamel dots.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis White cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from CutCardStock Basis Gray cardstock and light gray gingham paper, added a CRAFTplorations Just Thank You Clear Sticker sentiment and layered the panel on the gray cardstock.

And one more peek… such an adorable kitty thank you! Love the clean and simple!

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: CutCardStock Basis White cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Gray cardstock, Hot Off The Press Gingham #2 double-sided 6×6 papers
Stamps: STAMPlorations Purrfectly Pawsome stamp set
Ink: Catherine Pooler Twilight ink; Arteza alcohol marker- CG08
Dies/Punches: Kadomaru Pro Corner Rounder
Accessories: Tonic Studios 12″ Guillotine Paper Trimmer, MISTI stamp tool, Bearly Art precision craft glue, Eyelet Outlet Gray Enamel Dots, CRAFTplorations Just Thank You Clear Stickers

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!
