Merry Christmas Sketched Floral

Hi everybody! A very early Happy Saturday to you! I hope you are going to do something fun this weekend! I have a project to share that I created with the new Prickley Pear Stamps Sketched Florals Poinsettia stamp set! This is the new set they just released a few days ago and I created a pretty Christmas card in non-traditional colors of teal and purple with lots of light green thrown in. LOVE this color combo, especially for a Christmas card!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with plaid patterned paper layers which I adhered to the card base. Using the Sizzix Embroidery Thinlits, I die cut the hoop from CutCardStock Basis Teal and adhered it to the card front. I stamped the poinsettia image in Ranger black soot archival ink on Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, stamped it again in Versamark and heat embossed it with Hero Arts clear embossing powder. I colored the image with alcohol markers, cut it with the center die from the Sizzix Embroidery Thinlits, and adhered it in the center of the embroidery hoop. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it to the bottom of the card front. I added an Eyelet Outlet 3mm green pearl bling strip across the top and three pearls on each side of the sentiment.

And one more look… I’m absolutely thrilled with how this turned out! The embroidery hoop is such a fun element to add to this Christmas card!

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! ;)

Happy Holidays

Hi friends! Happy Thursday! Can you believe there are only a couple days left of July?! Where is the time going?! I’m thrilled to share a Christmas card with you today that I created for Prickley Pear Stamps with their new Sketched Florals Poinsettia stamp set released just yesterday! Wow. Just wow. This set is beyond gorgeous. I see this one getting a lot of use in the years to come!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base and layering panels from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock, a layering panel from CutCardStock Red Wagon cardstock (which I adhered to the card base), and plaid patterned paper panels (which I adhered to the white layering panels). I stamped the poinsettia image on Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock in Ranger black soot archival ink and colored it with Karin Brushmarkers. I cut the colored image with a Cottage Cutz Double-Sided Oval Die and adhered it to the card front. I stamped the sentiment in black soot ink on a scrap piece of Basis White cardstock, trimmed it and layered it on a scrap piece of Red Wagon cardstock, and adhered it to the bottom of the focal image. The final step was adding several Kat Scrappiness gold pearls with my Trinity Pick Up Stick.

And one more peek… I just can get over this image! So gorgeous – and the vibrant Karin Brushmarkers just brought it to life!

8/7/22 Top 3 at Country View Challenges!

Hi friends! A very Happy Saturday to you and I hope you’re doing something fun this weekend – indoors and out of this heat! We typically don’t feel the heat (or the cold) quite as bad because we don’t have much humidity out here, but we’re sure feeling it this summer. I have a fun travel-themed card to share today that I created for the July 2022 – Travel challenge over at Country View Challenges. I grabbed my Spellbinders Around The World Kit of the Month from August 2020 and made this fun card with lots of layers! I guess subconsciously I’m wishing we could travel to a cooler spot right now – and the temps in New York, London and Paris are a little lower than they are here, lol!

I used papers, dies, stamps, die cut shapes, chipboard embellishments, sequins and foam squares from the kit. I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock and adhered coordinating patterned paper layer and strips. I die cut a globe from CutCardStock Basis Black, Basis Green and Stardream Metallic Vista cardstock, assembled it and adhered it to the card front. I tucked several skyscraper die cut shapes from the kit around the top edge of the globe

I adhered more die cut shapes to the card front, popping most of them up on foam squares for dimension. I added a few chipboard embellishments and sequins which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a leftover strip of patterned paper used on the front along with narrow strips of CutCardStock Basis Green and Stardream Metallic Vista cardstock. Using the stamp set in the kit, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and layered the panel on CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock.

And one more peek… such a fun card with lots of dimension!

Adventure Awaits

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! I hope you’re having a great week! I’m stoked to be back on the Printable Cuttable Creatables blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a slimline card using the super adorable Pouncing Cat and Yarn Basket SVG files from the amazing Purrr-fect Pals Cat SVG Bundle. OMGoodness, there are a whopping 29 files in this bundle and if you are a fellow cat lover, then you’re sure to find some whimsical kitties and accessories that you just can’t live without! I had birthday in mind when I created this card but it really could be used for just about any celebratory event.

I cut a 3-3/4″ x 9″ slimline card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock along with a layering panel from The Paper Studio Entirely Textures 2 paper pad which I adhered to the card base. I cut all the pieces from the Pouncing Cat and Yarn Basket SVG files (both from the Purrr-fect Pals Cat SVG Bundle) from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock and colored them with alcohol markers. This was something a little different than cutting the pieces from colored cardstock which I typically do.

I used bright alcohol marker colors for the yarn balls which created great contrast against the neutral background. I colored black spots on the kitty to resemble our guy, Loki. I stamped a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Memento Espresso Truffle ink which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock, and embellished it with leftover patterned paper used on the front and a narrow strip of GKD Charcoal Brown cardstock. I stamped another sentiment (from the same stamp set) in brown ink and layered the panel on the charcoal brown cardstock.

And one more peek… this kitty is so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it! And the yarn basket definitely adds to the cuteness factor! LOVE how this turned out!

Blinged Out Christmas Cup

7/25/22 Top Pick at Crafting Happiness Challenges!
7/31/22 Best Technique Winner at Classic Design Challenge!
8/1/22 Top 5 at QKR Stampede!

Hey everybody! I hope your week is off to a great start! It’s going by fast and will soon be the weekend! Again, lol! It’s Christmas in July all over blogland so I thought I’d share my blinged out Christmas cup featuring the Simply Crafty SVGs Takeout Coffee Cups cut file along with a variety of cardstock, patterned paper, dies and bling. So festive and I love how it turned out!

Using my Scan N Cut, I cut the coffee cup and lid from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and the layering panels from The Paper Studio’s Four Seasons and Everything in Between paper pad (one of my all-time favorites), and assembled the cup and lid. Next, I adhered a 1″ strip of CutCardStock Pop Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock around the cup and embellished it with Eyelet Outlet 3mm Green Jewel Bling Strip and Red Snowflake Bling along with Kat Scrappiness gold pearls.

Using the Hero Arts Paper Layering Poinsettia die set, I die cut the poinsettia from CutCardStock Basis Dark Red, Basis Red, Pop Tone Gumdrop Green and Bright Gold Foil cardstock, assembled it and adhered it to the front of the cup. I adhered a foiled sentiment created with the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, Glimmer Gold Foil, Glimmer Mini Christmas Sentiment Strips Hot Foil Plate & Die Set, and Glimmer Mini Everyday Sentiments Plate & Die Set.

The final touch was adding a little more bling (green gemstones and gold pearls) to the lid. Here are a couple more shots.

And one more peek… I just love how this turned out! You know how I love me some 3-D projects! And especially Christmas projects! ;)

Have a Magical Day

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! I hope you’re having a fabulous week! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring our Bright Silver Foil cardstock which is a must-have (along with the Bright Gold Foil cardstock) in my studio. I created a shaker card and used alcohol ink on the silver foil cardstock to create the background for this adorable fairy-themed birthday card!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from Mantis Green cardstock and Bright Silver Foil cardstock. I dropped Ranger Aqua, Sailboat Blue, Citrus and Lettuce alcohol inks along with Ranger Alcohol Blending Solution onto the silver foil cardstock, used an air blower to move it around the foil, and set it aside to dry thoroughly. I die cut an oval frame from Kale Green cardstock using the Cottage Cutz Double-Stitched Oval dies and a fairy castle from the silver foil cardstock using the Scrap Man Fairy Castle die.

Using the smaller of the two oval dies, I die cut an oval aperture into the alcohol ink background and a piece of dark green craft foam. I adhered a piece of acetate behind the aperture, adhered the craft foam, and then adhered the Kale Green oval frame to the front of the inked background.

I added a pinch of Kat Scrappiness Mirrored Clear Confetti Dot Mix to the Mantis Green cardstock panel and adhered the background, sealing in the confetti. I stamped the sentiment from the Prickley Pear Stamps Best Unicorn Buddies stamp set in Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey and Spruce inks, trimmed them and layered them on a scrap of Kale Green cardstock, and added them to the card front. The final step was adding small Eyelet Outlet turquoise gemstones to the silver foil fairy castle and adhering it to the acetate.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of Bright Silver Foil cardstock and Mantis Green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment (from the same Prickley Pear Stamps Best Unicorn Buddies stamp set) in Catherine Poole Lime Rickey ink and layered the panel on Kale Green cardstock.

And one more peek… this shaker card is so stinkin’ cute I can’t even stand it! The alcohol ink background worked so well on the silver foil cardstock to create the background, and I love the silver foil fairy castle!

Gnomie’s Seasonal Add-Ons

Hey, everybody! Happy Tuesday – I hope your week is off to a great start! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with my final DT inspiration project for this team. My term for Clear Scraps has come to an end and I’ve opted not to continue for another term, so I’d like to thank them for having me along for the last year. You’ll remember that I shared My Seasonal Gnomie a few days ago, and I’m back today to share all of his seasonal add-ons created with the Wood Fall Collection Shapes, Wood Holiday Collection Shapes, Wood Spring Collection Shapes and Wood Summer Collection Shapes!

All the wood shapes were colored with acrylic paint pens. I adhered a small magnet to the lower part of the gnome’s beard in the area where he’ll ‘hold’ each of the seasonal add-ons (which also have a magnet on the back of each one). I adhered a tiny magnet to the back of each of his hands and two tiny magnets on the front of each of the add-ons for him to ‘hold’ them.

We’ll start with the pumpkin, apple and maple leaf from the Wood Fall Collection Shapes.

We’ll move on to the bulb, snowflake and tree from the Wood Holiday Collection Shapes.

Now we have the heart, shamrock and Easter egg from the Wood Spring Collection Shapes.

And finally, we have the flower, watermelon slice and popsicle from the Wood Summer Collection Shapes.

How stinkin’ cute are all these seasonal add-ons made from the wood collection shapes?! Love, love, love!

Happy Easter Twister

7/21/22 Lucky Random Winner at Art Impressions Blog!

Hello my friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! I’ve popped in with my second post of the morning with a super adorable pastel plaid Easter card created with the amazing Art Impressions Easter Twist Set stamps and dies that I want to enter into their Perfect Plaid Challenge #331 that’s going on right now! If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Twisters, you really need to… they are so stinkin’ fun I can’t even stand it! This is the second one I’ve made – the first one was a birthday card and the post is HERE if you’re interested in looking. I LOVE an interactive card and the recipients typically do, too! ;)

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a pastel plaid layering panel from The Paper Studio Four Seasons and Everything In Between paper pad (one of my favorites) and adhered it to the card base. Using the Art Impressions Twist Frame Dies, I cut the aperture into the front flap as well as a frame for the aperture from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Flame cardstock and adhered it to the opening.

Using the Art Impressions Easter Twist Set stamps, I stamped the front and back images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with alcohol markers, cut them with the coordinating Art Impressions Easter Twist Set die and adhered them together. I die cut two pieces of ric rac and a stitched mini scallop circle from Solar White cardstock using the My Favorite Things Stitched Ric Rac and Stitched Mini Scallop Circle STAX Die-namics. I stamped the sentiment in black ink on a scrap piece of Flame cardstock, punched it with a 1″ circle punch and adhered it to the die cut scallop circle. I adhered the ric rac and the sentiment piece which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from a coordinating piece of patterned paper from the same seasonal paper pad and adhered it to the inside of the card base. I cut a rectangular piece of Solar White cardstock for a signature panel and adhered it to the bottom.

And one more peek… here’s the back side of the twist element – you have to admit there’s nothing cuter than a bunny butt! ;)

Thinking of You

Hey everybody! Well, another weekend has come and gone, and here we are on Monday! I hope you have a great week coming up! I have a pretty Tape Runner DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring die cut shapes from Spellbinders. And of course, all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner. I made this card for someone very dear to me who was going through a rough time. I thought the gold accents were so pretty and cheerful.

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner. Wet glue was used only to adhere the doily and pearls, and the two elements with the gold accents were popped up on foam squares. I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from Basis Blue, Bright Gold Foil and 80# Solar White cardstock. Using the Prickley Pear Stamps Chicken Wire Background stamp and Catherine Pooler Tranquil, Stone Blue and Cove Blue inks, I stamped the background, cut it with the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, and layered the panels together. I cut a doily from 80# Solar White cardstock using the Spellbinders Medallion Four die and adhered it to the card front along with several small die cut hearts. I adhered the flowers and sentiment with Scrapbook Adhesives 3-D Foam Squares, and added several white pearls which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with leftover strips from the background and gold foil used on the front. I added a die cut sentiment and layered the panel on Basis Blue cardstock.

And one more peek… such a pretty card and I’m loving all the layers and touches of gold! And it’s great to have Tape Runner to hold it all together! ;)
