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

Sunflower Thank You note card

Hi everyone! I hope you are having an amazing week! I’ve gotten a good bit of crafting in so I’m a happy camper! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #147 – Anything Goes! I created a pretty thank you note card with another NBUS rubber stamp (never before used schtuff) I unearthed in my studio! I had to peel the backing off the cling in order to use this one too, so I know it’s never been out of it’s packaging, lol! This one is beautiful and I’m happy I found it! ;)

I created a standard A2 top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Linen 100# Solar White cardstock along with a panel for the front cut from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock. I stamped the image in brown ink on the front panel, colored it with alcohol markers, layered it on craft foam and adhered it to the card base. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink on a white cardstock scrap, trimmed it and adhered it to the front panel on dimensional foam pads. The final touch was the addition of Nuvo Ivory Seashell Crystal Drops.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, embellished it with a strip of dark yellow cardstock and layered the panel on the same cardstock. I left the inside panel blank to write a custom message.

And one more look… what a gorgeous stamp! Love how this turned out!

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!

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock; CutCardStock Curious Metallic White Silver cardstock, CutCardStock Silver Glitter cardstock and CutCardStock Bonsai cardstock; Papertrey Ink New Leaf cardstock

But remember, the twist is not necessary to play in our challenges! Thanks so much for stopping by today – we’ll see you again soon! ;)

Hello Kitty!

Hey everybody! Well, another week has almost bitten the dust – they are passing by so fast it’s making my head spin! 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 Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a super sweet CAS kitty card featuring the most adorable Tutti Designs Cat In Basket die paired with some pink enamel hearts and iridescent bling! Perfect for a cat lover!

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis Natural 110# cardstock (which is perfect for an almost one-layer card) and rounded the bottom right corner. I cut the Tutti Designs Cat In Basket and a single narrow strip from CutCardStock Magenta 80# cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in pink ink, stamped it again in Versamark and applied Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. I adhered the die cut and the strip, and added two pink enamel hearts. Using the Crystal Katana Pick Up Tool, I added quite a few tiny iridescent gemstones to finish off the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80# cardstock and embellished it with leftover strips of CutCardStock Magenta 80# cardstock and CutCardStock Basis Natural 110# cardstock for a tone-on-tone effect, stamped the sentiment in pink ink and layered the panel on the magenta cardstock.

And one more peek… this is so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it! What an absolutely ah-DOR-able die! Wouldn’t it be fun to die cut a bunch of these cats in a basket in different colors to create a set to give as a gift?!

CAS Inspirational Card Trio

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! Can’t believe it’s the middle of June already! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring more of the Pop-Tone cardstock that’s on sale this month, so be sure to grab a few colors to add to your stash! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I have a cool upcycled project to share today – I turned three business card size inspirational cards into greeting cards. If you’ve ever ordered from CutCardStock, you know that they always, without fail, include a note pad and a handwritten thank you note for supporting their family business, and they wrap the packages of cardstock in bubble wrap (with lots of TLC) to keep them from getting damaged in transit. In an order I received a few months back, they also included three inspirational cards with awesome messages that you may have received too, so I left them out on my desk with the intention of eventually upcycling them because the messages were so awesome. I’m super proud that this upcycling project happened sooner rather than later! ;)

The design is the same on all three cards. I cut standard A2 size card bases from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock and rounded the top left and bottom right corners. I rounded the same two corners of the inspirational cards and cut small layering panels for those from CutCardStock Pop-Tone 65# Tangy Orange cardstock, Pop-Tone 65# Wild Cherry cardstock and Pop-Tone 65# Orange Fizz cardstock. Pop-Tone cardstock is the perfect layering weight without adding a huge amount of bulk to your cards. I washi-taped two nesting primitive star dies together and cut stars from CutCardStock Basis 80# Gold cardstock, CutCardStock Basis 80# Navy cardstock and CutCardStock Adobo 80# 4×6 cardstock, using both the large outline and the small full size die cuts. I started with a strip of washi tape, then added the layered inspirational cards and stars. Super simple design! I realized not too awfully long ago – after 45+ years of crafting – that I navigate toward the right with most of my designs, presumably because I’m left-handed. So there you have it… in case you’ve ever wondered, lol! ;)

I cut inside panels from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Pop-Tone 65# Tangy Orange cardstock, CutCardStock Pop-Tone 65# Wild Cherry cardstock and CutCardStock Pop-Tone 65# Orange Fizz cardstock and rounded the top left and bottom right corners of each. I stamped the same sentiment on the inside of each in black ink and added a small star die cut from coordinating cardstock.

And one more look… super happy with how these turned out and I’m so glad these awesome little inspirational cards didn’t wind up in the trash!

how the SHELL are you? note card

Howdy, friends! 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 delighted to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a super fun ‘just because’ note card featuring Shell Brads, Sea Shore Brads and Fish Brads which were just the ticket to pair with this adorable Brutus Monroe stamp set!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, and rounded the bottom right corner. I stamped the image in the bottom right corner, colored it with alcohol markers, and added a stamped sentiment and a few more bubbles drawn with a micron pen. I brushed on a super light layer of Ranger tumbled glass distress ink for just a smidgeon of color, and added the Shell Brads, Sea Shore Brads and Fish Brads. I adhered the panel on a piece of blue craft foam and then to the card base. The finishing touch, after adhering the inside layers, was adding Nuvo Ivory Seashell Crystal Drops to the pearl in the shell.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and layered it on CutCardStock Basis Medium Blue cardstock. Since this is a note card, I left plenty of room to write a custom message.

And one more peek… really loving how this turned out! Super easy CAS design that would be so fun to mass produce to create a set to give as a gift! Might have to think about that for a minute! ;)

In Sympathy

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Hope your week is going great so far! 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 Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #59 – June Anything Goes! I taught myself how to make Foamiran flowers a while back and this is actually the very first one I created which I think turned out pretty darn well for my first attempt! They are so stinkin’ fun – I probably won’t ever buy anymore ready-made flowers, lol!

I cut my typical A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the bottom left corner this time. I cut layering panels from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock and blue cardstock, adhered them together and then to the card base. I cut a connected oval die cut from metallic silver cardstock and adhered it to the front panel. I stamped the sympathy sentiment in blue ink in the center of the die cut. I adhered the foamiran flower and several leaves die cut from Papertrey Ink New Leaf cardstock (and inked with Ranger mowed lawn distress ink) to a 3/4″ punched circle. I found that adhering these large flowers with leaves to a punched circle makes it cleaner and easier to adhere to the card front.

I stamped a small bird, also from the Prickley Pear Stamps Birdcage Winter 2 stamp set, and cut it with the coordinating Birdcage die set, and layered it on several more plain die cuts for dimension, then adhered it to the flower. The finishing touch was the addition of several blue flat-back pearls in the upper right corner.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished the right side of the panel with some leftover strips of metallic silver and blue cardstock, stamped the sentiment in blue ink, and layered the panel on blue cardstock. I love using cardstock scraps in unique ways! ;)

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! As mentioned, these foamiran flowers are so much fun to make and they really pack a wallop to a card front!

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# and 80# cardstock, Stampin’ Up Marina Mist cardstock, Papertrey Ink New Leaf cardstock, Marco’s Venicelux Metallic Silver cardstock

Mother’s Day Bouquets

Hi everybody! I have a couple more commissioned Mother’s Day cards to share this afternoon which I scheduled a good piece out from this morning’s post. We’re out of pocket for a couple days and I didn’t want you to get bored, lol! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created these two cards the same day as the Mother’s Day Wreath card that I shared a couple weeks ago since I had the Sizzix Festive Repeat Thinlits out. I really love the effect the apertures have on the front of a card!

I cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80# cardstock and ran the bases through the Big Shot with one of the dies from the Sizzix Festive Repeat Thinlits set, leaving a few of the tiny bits in the apertures (as I did with the Mother’s Day Wreath card) for a little interest. I backed the apertures with a panel of blue cardstock and added a stamped, colored and die cut vase of flowers from the Pretty Pink Posh Mother’s Day stamp set to each card front. I stamped the sentiment in black ink and added a few tiny iridescent gemstones to finish off the card fronts.

I cut the inside panels from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80# cardstock, stamped a Clearly Besotted sentiment (two different ones) on each one in black ink and layered the panels on the blue cardstock. Kept the insides very simple.

And one more peek… so loving how these turned out! The lady who commissioned me to make all these Mother’s Day cards to sell in her store said these two were among the first ones bought up by the customers, lol! ;)

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80# cardstock, Stampin’ Up Pacific Point cardstock
Stamps: Pretty Pink Posh Mother’s Day stamp set, Clearly Besotted One In A Million stamp set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Nuvo alcohol markers- 379, 381, 405, 427, 449, 450, 451, 393, 415, 416; Posca white paint pen
Dies/Punches: Pretty Pink Posh Mother’s Day die set, Sizzix Festive Repeat Thinlits
Accessories: Tonic Studios 12″ Guillotine Paper Trimmer, Big Shot, MISTI stamp tool, Scotch ATG, Bearly Art precision craft glue, Darice iridescent gemstones

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing these cards and you’re not getting too awfully tired of seeing Mother’s Day cards – I still have a few more to share but I’ll spread ’em out! Thanks so much for stopping by today – we’ll see you next time! ;)

you’re one in a CHAMELEON

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! They sure are flying by fast! 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 fun clean and simple thank you card featuring some of the newest brads in the store which I paired with some awesome skinny washi tape and my favorite enamel dots!

The top-folding card base is a standard A2 size cut from Neenah Classic Linen Solar White 100# cardstock which I embellished with a strip of patterned paper and a strip of Skinny Gold Washi Tape adhered to a skinny strip of white cardstock. The star of the show is a cute little chameleon from the Reptile Brads pack sitting on a stamped and die cut limb with a small cluster of leaves. I stamped the sentiment in teal ink in the lower left corner and added some Green Enamel Dots to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of patterned paper and strips of Skinny Gold Washi Tape, stamped the sentiment in teal ink, and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base.

And one more look… love, love, love how this turned out! These reptile brads are super adorable! ;)
