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!

Americana Mermaid Wall Hanging

Hey everybody! Happy Tuesday! I hope my American friends had a great July 4th long weekend! I’m stoked to be on the Printable Cuttable Creatables blog today with my debut DT inspiration project! I’m all about Americana and anything red, white and blue, and I grew up seeing live mermaid shows at the Weeki Wachee Springs Attraction (in central FL), so my project is a combination of the two. I created a fun wall hanging featuring the Mermaid in the USA and Mermaid Tail SVG files and red plaid digital paper from the Christmas Patterns Digital Paper Mega Bundle. Yep, you read that right… Christmas paper isn’t just for Christmas! ;)

I cut all the pieces in the Mermaid in the USA SVG file in red, white, blue and gold glitter cardstock. I printed the red plaid digital paper from the Christmas Patterns Digital Paper Mega Bundle on Basis 80# White cardstock. This versatile paper pack can be used for non-holiday projects, too! I trimmed the digital paper and adhered it to a sturdy 8×8 panel that I created from two pieces of 165# Solar White cardstock glued together. I adhered all the pieces from the SVG file, and ended up adding a layered wave from the Mermaid Tail SVG file at the bottom which I had not originally planned. I punched two holes at the top with my WRMK Crop-A-Dile Big Bite and added a ribbon hanger made from Really Reasonable Ribbon Flag grosgrain ribbon with knots tied on the ends.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! I love fun versatile digital papers and thinking outside the box! And aren’t these SVG files so fun?!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! I hope you had a great weekend and have something fun planned this weekend! I have a pretty CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share this morning featuring our Bright Gold Foil cardstock which I paired with our Basis Green and Basis Light Lime cardstock. This engagement or wedding congratulations card has a filigree leaf background cut from the gold foil cardstock which really makes a statement!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. Using the Dare 2B Artzy Leaf Background die set, I cut the filigree leaf background from Bright Gold Foil cardstock which I adhered to a Basis Green cardstock stitched rectangle panel with spray adhesive. I die cut a stitched leaf from Basis Light Lime cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Happy & Heartfelt stamp set in Catherine Pooler Deck the Halls ink. I picked out a die cut foiled floral element that I had already created with the Pinkfresh Studio Joyful Bouquet washi tape and die, adhered it to the top of the leaf, and then adhered the panel to the card base. I added several Kat Scrappiness gold pearls to the leaf which completed the card front.

Using the same Dare 2B Artzy Leaf Backfground die set, I die cut a stitched rectangle panel from Basis Green cardstock for the inside along with a thin frame from Bright Gold Foil cardstock which I adhered to the stitched rectangle panel with spray adhesive. I also die cut a slightly smaller stitched rectangle panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock using a My Favorite things Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics along with an embellishing strip from Basis Light Lime cardstock which I adhered together. I stamped a sentiment (from the same Stampin’ Up Happy & Heartfelt stamp set) in Catherine Pooler Deck the Halls ink. I adhered an additional Pinkfresh Studio foiled floral element and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! Green is my favorite color, so I automatically went for the Basis Green and Basis Light Lime cardstock to compliment the Bright Gold Foil cardstock!

Hey everybody, Happy Friday! Hope you had a terrific week! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #45 – Anything Christmas Goes! You know how I love me some fun folds… so I created this pretty open box card for our challenge this time using the Concord & 9th Stacks Base dies along with the Concord & 9th Home for the Holidays stamps and dies! This scene is so much fun to create – this isn’t the first time I’ve used these stamps and dies, and it surely won’t be the last!

I die cut the base from CutCardStock Basis Blue and Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, added tiny white dots using a Posca White paint pen, and assembled the base. I cut the remaining elements from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and CutCardStock Dolphin, Bonsai, Basis Red, Curious Metallic Night, Royal Sundance Linen Emerald, Royal Sundance Linen Burgundy, Curious Metallic Aloe, Stardream Metallic Aquamarine, Curious Metallic Pink Quartz, Basis Teal, Basis Aqua, and Shadow Gray cardstock, and then assembled the houses. I added a few tiny iridescent gemstones to the background and then created the scene. The final touch was stamping the sentiment in Catherine Pooler Suede Shoes ink on the white banner, layering it on the blue banner, and adhering it to the front of the card.

Here’s an angled shot.

And one more peek… love the fact that box cards fold flat for mailing! I really love how this one turned out!

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! ;)

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 Fall Box Card

Hi friends! Can you believe it’s the middle of the year already?! The months are just flying by! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #156 – Anything Goes! Box cards are at the top of my all-time favorites and this truck box card with all the pumpkins and leaves was super fun to create… I could smell Fall while I was making this one! This Fall Truck Box Card is yet another awesome cut file from Simply Crafty SVGs! I was on a truck ‘roll’ there for a bit and I believe I’ve created nearly all the truck box cards Sandy has designed!

I cut the truck body and panels from CutCardStock Basis Dark Orange, the tires from Basis Black, the back lights from Basis Red, the sentiment from Basis Brown, and the bumper and mirrors from Stardream Metallic Silver cardstock. I cut the pumpkins and leaves from Basis Green, Basis Dark Red, Basis Gold, Basis Orange, Pop-Tone Orange Fizz and Pop-Tone Tangy Orange. I added some texture by using the Sizzix Texture Fades Harlequin embossing folder on the side and back panels, and the Darice Chevron embossing folder on the tires.

I cut the back panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and stamped the Inspired By Stamping sentiment (sadly out of business) in Catherine Pooler Icing on the Cake ink.

Another angled shot and one folded flat for mailing… so loving how this turned out! I’m definitely in my element when assembling these projects – not a care in the world and no clue what’s going on around me, 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!

Friends are flowers

Hey everybody! I hope you’re having a great week and it’s not too hot yet where you are! It’s definitely getting warm here but we don’t have much humidity so it never feels as warm as it does in other places with higher humidity levels. I was asked by Becca, the owner of FarmQuest Challenge Blog, to be a guest designer for Theme #7 – Barrel AND Watering Can, Pitcher or Bucket. Of course, I said yes, so I created a pretty friendship card featuring the Bearly Art Flower Barrel SVG and the pitcher from the Simply Crafty SVGs Pitcher of Flowers cut file. I also used sentiments from Trinity Stamps Friends are Flowers and Supporting Script Sentiments stamp sets.

I started by creating the main card element using my Scan N Cut, the Bearly Art Flower Barrel SVG and CutCardStock Basis Black, Basis Brown, Basis Magenta, Pop Tone Jellybean Green, Pop Tone Spearmint, Pop Tone Cotton Candy, Pop Tone Banana Split, Shadow Gray and Scottish Highlands Green cardstock. As I always say, the most fun of working with SVGs is putting the projects together, and I really enjoyed this one! I also cut a flat pitcher from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Lagoon using the Simply Crafty SVGs Pitcher of Flowers cut file and embellished it with some Eyelet Outlet pink gemstones and a die cut flower that was out on my desk.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel and strips from two coordinating patterned papers from the The Paper Studio Four Seasons and Everything In Between paper pad (one of my all-time favorites). I also cut narrow strips from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Lagoon cardstock and adhered all the panels and strips to the card base. I added the flower barrel and the pitcher, along with a sentiment (and stamped and colored butterfly) from the Trinity Stamps Friends are Flowers stamp set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut with the coordinating Trinity Stamps Friends are Flowers die set. The finishing touch was adding some Eyelet Outlet green pearl bling.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from the patterned paper and Lagoon cardstock used on the front. I stamped the sentiment from the Trinity Stamps Supporting Script Sentiments stamp set in black ink and layered the panel on Lagoon cardstock.

And one more look… really loving how this card turned out and how well it fits the theme for the FarmQuest Challenge Blog guest gig!
