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!

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!

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! ;)

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!

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!
