Stay Humble-Work Hard-Be Kind

2/3/23 Rising Star at A Place To Start!

Hey everybody! Happy first day of February… already! Can you believe it?! Mom and Dad would have been married 75 years today and I’m sure they are celebrating that Diamond Anniversary in Heaven! I’m delighted to be back with another Keep It Simple DT inspiration project to share! This mini slimline features products from the Household Chore Gnomes collection that was released last September! You know I love me some gnomes and these are some of the cutest ever!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with strips and a layering panel from papers in the Household Chore Gnomes Collection Pack and the Back To Basics Royal Collection Pack. I stamped the gnome, bubbles and soap from the Household Chore Gnomes Work Hard Stamps in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers, and cut them with the coordinating Household Chore Gnomes Work Hard Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Catherine Poole Suede Shoes ink and added several Back To Basics Royal Enamel Dots.

I cut the inside panel from Solar White cardstock, embellished it with strips of the papers used on the front, and stamped the sentiment in blue ink.

I’m delighted to be back to share another ScrapbookingStore DT inspiration project with you today created with the amazing January 2023 Scrapbook Kit with Upgrades! Winter is so majestic with snow and pretty snowflakes, and everything in this kit depicts just that! I created a mini slimline card featuring a pretty ombre snowflake patterned paper and the delightful felt and glitter element from the upgrades.

Hey everybody! Happy Thursday – I hope you’re having a fabulous week! We’re on the downslide toward the end of January already! Can you believe it?! I’m thrilled to be back with another Keep It Simple DT inspiration project to share today! This mini slimline birthday card features die cut pieces and sentiment stamps from the Little Cowgirl Birthday collection which I paired with papers and enamel hearts from the Rose collection. The Little Cowgirl Birthday collection was released back in September, and if you haven’t already checked it out, you really oughta! There are SO many absolutely adorable papers, stamps, dies, and die cut elements that are perfect for little girl (or big girl) cards!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and a pink buffalo check layering panel from the Back To Basics Rose Collection Pack 6×6 Cardstock, and rounded the bottom right corner of each. I added cowgirl and critter die cuts from the Little Cowgirl Birthday Die Cut Pieces and stamped the sentiment from the Little Cowgirl Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set in Memento Rich Cocoa ink. The finishing touch was adding a couple small enamel hearts.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar white cardstock and embellished it with a leftover strip of the pink buffalo check used on the front. I stamped the sentiment (also from the Little Cowgirl Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set) in Rich Cocoa ink, and layered the panel on another print from the Back To Basics Rose Collection Pack.

Peace mini slimline card

Hi everyone! OMGosh, St. Nick will be here tonight… are you ready?! He’s coming regardless, lol! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring more of our Stardream Metallic cardstock! This cardstock has the softest shimmer and is some of the prettiest I’ve ever seen! I’ve used Stardream Metallic Fairway cardstock and Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock on this mini slimline card, and I love how it turned out!

I cut my favorite mini slimline card size of 3-1/2″ x 6″ from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. Using the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Foliage Frame die, I cut the frame from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Fairway cardstsock, and adhered it to the card base. Next, using the Sizzix Script Holiday Words Thinlits, I die cut the sentiment three times from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock and layered them together for a little dimension. I clipped the prongs off of four Eyelet Outlet Poinsettia Flower Brads (didn’t want the bulk under the frame) and adhered them with Ranger Distress Collage Medium. The finishing touch was adding several Darice tiny clear gemstones.

Using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers dies, I cut the inside panels from the Stardream Metallic Fairway cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, and adhered them together. I stamped a sentiment from the CAS-ual Friday Stamps Snowy Sayings stamp set in Catherine Pooler Rouge ink.

celebrate mini slimline

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Wow, this week went by rather quickly, didn’t it?! We’re that much closer to Christmas! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring our Stardream Metallic cardstock which is among my favorites! This white-on-white mini slimline Christmas card turned out gorgeous but was hard as heck to photograph! I really love creating tone-on-tone projects – they really pack a punch!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. I cut four frames from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Eris cardstock using the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Fri-Frame Dies, and adhered them together for some dimension. Using the Sizzix Woodlands Thinlits, Sizzix Primitive Stars Framelits and Sizzix Script Celebration Words Thinlits, I die cut two trees, a star and the sentiment from the Stardream Metallic Eris cardstock, and created the scene on the card front. The finishing touch was adding several Darice tiny gemstones.

Using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers dies, I cut the inside panels from the Stardream Metallic Eris and Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock. I embellished the Solar White panel with a narrow strip cut from the Eris cardstock, and stamped the sentiment from the Prickley Pear Stamps Christmas Trees stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Autumn Time mini slimline

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great week! I’m excited to be back sharing another ScrapbookingStore DT inspiration project with you today. My Halloween shares are complete and now I’m moving onto Autumn/Fall with the November 2022 Scrapbook Kit! I’m loving all the beautiful patterns in this collection – Fall is is my favorite time of year so I’m really enjoying myself! And you know I’m also a fan of slimline and mini slimline cards, so I created a mini slimline featuring paper and stickers from the November kit!

I cut a 3-1/2” x 6” mini slimline card base and a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis 110# Natural cardstock along with a layering panel from a patterned paper in the collection. I added truck and gingham border stickers from the sticker sheet. The finishing touch was adding a few gemstones.

To complete the inside, I added another gingham border and a sentiment sticker from the sticker sheet. This card couldn’t have been any easier! ;)

Stay Out! Graveyard slimline

Hi everyone! Here’s to a Terrific Tuesday to you all! I’m thrilled to be back to share another ScrapbookingStore DT inspiration project with you today, created with the amazing October 2022 Scrapbook Kit with Upgrades! The Halloween-themed prints and colors of the papers in this collection, along with the coordinating stickers and upgrades, are amazing. You know I love slimline cards, and this size was perfect to create a spooky graveyard scene using items from the October collection!

I cut a 3-3/4” x 9” slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from a patterned paper in the collection. I created a graveyard scene using CutCardStock Pop Tone Jellybean Green and Tangy Orange cardstock, the fence die from the Stampin’ Up Halloween Scenes Edgelits, stickers from the sticker sheet, and die cuts from the upgrades in the collection.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip cut from the patterned paper used on the front. I added die cuts and a trimmed sentiment from the upgrades, and layered the panel on CutCardStock Pop Tone Tangy Orange cardstock.

Have a Cozy Christmas slimline

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I can’t believe how quickly this year is coming to a close! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring Neenah Classic Crest Solar White along with Basis Red, Basis Dark Red, Kale Green, Pop Tone Jellybean Green, Mantis Green, Stardream Metallic Eris and Bright Gold Foil! As you know, we just moved and my studio is total chaos. I couldn’t find anything but cardstock and a handful of ink pads, so I used a Gemini Junior cutting plate as a stamp block, and am totally amazed that the stamping (on the inside) came out straight! LOL!

I cut a 3-3/4″ x 9″ slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar white cardstock along with a layering panel from Mantis Green cardstock. I used the Splitcoast Stampers Faux Quilt Candle Card tutorial HERE for inspiration, and created the candles from Basis Red, Basis Dark Red, Kale Green, Pop Tone Jellybean Green, and Stardream Metallic Eris. I punched leaves from Bright Gold Foil for the flames. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Cozy Christmas stamp set in Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey ink, trimmed it, and adhered it to the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of Mantis Green and Pop Tone Jellybean green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the same Stampin’ Up stamp set in green ink (using the Gemini Junior cutting plate as a stamp block, lol) and layered the panel on Mantis Green cardstock.

From Our Gnome to Yours

Hey y’all! Well another Monday has rolled around and I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I have another Kat Scrappiness Creative Influencer inspiration project to share with you today, and this one is so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it! I’ve been playing with the Christmas Gnome Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies again, and along with the Mini Slimline Fancy Scalloped Dies and Mini Slimline Tri-Frame Dies, I created this Christmas card in a red and pink color combo to coordinate with this adorable guy’s candy cane.

I cut a mini slimline card base and die cut a layering panel and frame using the Mini Slimline Fancy Scalloped Dies and Mini Slimline Tri-Frame Dies. Using the Christmas Gnome Stamp Set, I stamped the gnome, colored him with alcohol markers, and cut him with the coordinating die. I adhered him to the card front, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set, and added several Eyelet Outlet Green Enamel Dots.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with leftover strips of Basis Red and Basis Pink cardstock. I stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and layered the panel on Basis Red cardstock.

Jingle all the way

Hi friends! It’s November 1st already… have you started your Christmas card stash yet?! Christmas will be here before we know it, lol! 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 #47- Anything Christmas Goes. This CAS mini slimline features the STAMPlorations Christmas Reindeer stamps and dies, some of the cutest in my stash!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slim card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Basis Dark Red cardstock and 80# Solar White cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers Dies which I adhered together and then to the card base. Using the super adorable STAMPlorations Christmas Reindeer stamp set, I stamped two reindeer on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock and colored them with alcohol markers. I cut them with the coordinating CUTplorations Christmas Reindeer die set and adhered the larger one to the card front. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink. You can’t see them in the photo, but I stamped snowflakes (from the same stamp set) in Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink on the background and embellished them with tiny iridescent gemstones.

I cut the inside panels from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and CutCardStock Basis Dark Red cardstock. I stamped the inside sentiment in red ink and adhered the other reindeer toward the bottom. I adhered the panels together and then to the inside of the card base.

And one more look… I do believe this is right up there on my list of all-time CAS Christmas favs and it’s so simple! ;)
