Don’t be sad

Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day! I’ve popped in this morning to share another Kat Scrappiness Creative Influencer inspiration project with you! As much as I enjoyed making this mini slimline, it really tugged at my heart strings. This stamp set was part of the release that came out shortly after we had to put Milo, one of our inside cats, to rest in early August due to cancer. He was just a few weeks shy of his fifth birthday and was such a sweet boy. But he’s in a better place, and this card is dedicated to him. I used the amazing Rainbow Bridge stamp set along with the Mini Slimline Stitched Rope Dies. I know I’ve mentioned many times that I absolutely love the selection of 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline dies available at Kat Scrappiness, which is my go-to size.

I cut a mini slimline size card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a die cut layering panel from CutCardStock Pop Tone Lemon Drop cardstock and a trimmed panel from 80# Solar White cardstock. Using the Rainbow Bridge stamp set, I stamped the bridge on 110# Solar White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers (and added some clear sparkle overlay), then fussy cut it. I stamped the kitty before adhering the bridge to the white cardstock panel, and then stamped the sentiment. The finishing touch was adding several Eyelet Outlet yellow enamel dots. I also made a coordinating envelope from Pop Tone Lemon Drop and Sunny Studio Striped Silly cardstock using the Mini Slimline Snail Mail Envelope Dies.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock along with another die cut layering panel from CutCardStock Pop Tone Lemon Drop cardstock. I embellished it with strips of white cardstock and striped pattern paper, and stamped another sentiment from the Rainbow Bridge stamp set.

Sweet Holiday Wishes

Howdy, peeps! Happy Sunday – I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend! I’ve popped in this morning to share an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project! This adorable red and green Christmas mini slimline note card features gingerbread cookies, and of course, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner! I also used some of my favorite Kat Scrappiness mini slimline dies. ;)

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner. Wet glue was used only to adhere the gemstones and small die cut heart. I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock (and rounded the corners) along with a die cut layering panel cut from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock using the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Scalloped Edge Dies. I created a narrow background panel from CutCardStock Granny Smith using the Sizzix Festive Repeat Thinlits with a slightly narrower panel of Silk Glitter Opulent cardstock. Using the Sunny Studio Christmas Cookies stamps, I stamped the gingerbreads and small heart, colored them with alcohol markers and cut them with the coordinating dies. I stamped the sentiment, trimmed and cut in sections, and added Eyelet Outlet 5mm Red Pearl Bling which completed the card front.

I die cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock using a Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Scalloped Edge Die and embellished it with strips of CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter and Pop-Tone Jellybean Green. I left the inside blank with plenty of room to write a custom message.

Get Well Soon mini slimline

Hi friends! Happy Sunday – here’s to the beginning of another great week! I hope it’s beginning to cool off just a little bit where you are! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today as a guest designer filling in for Janet who is out of town for a couple weeks. I’ve created a pretty get well card featuring our Sunflower Washi Tape, Sunflower Brads, and brown Sequins. I also used some pretty amazing mini slimline and sentiment dies from Kat Scrappiness.

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with four die cut frames using the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Tri-Frame Dies which I adhered together. I cut a layering panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and covered it with Sunflower Washi Tape. I added a die cut sentiment created with the Kat Scrappiness Get Well Soon Sentiment with Shadow Die and Basis Gold and Vanilla Bean Brown cardstock. I added a Sunflower Brad and several brown sequins which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Basis Gold and Vanilla Bean Brown cardstock. I embellished the white cardstock panel with a strip of the Sunflower Washi Tape which I trimmed along the flower line. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Sending Smiles stamp set in Catherine Pooler Icing on the Cake ink.

Just A Country Girl

Hey everybody! Here’s to a Terrific Tuesday! I’m stoked to be back with another Keep It Simple DT inspiration project to share using items from the new Little Cowgirl Birthday release! Can you tell I’m having a blast?! I used the Little Cowgirl Birthday Collection Stamp & Die Bundle, the Little Cowgirl Birthday Party Animals Stamp & Die Bundle and the Little Cowgirl Birthday Sentiments, along with the Little Cowgirl Birthday 4×9 Slimline Cardstock and the Little Cowgirl Birthday 6×6 Cardstock, and the Back to Basics Rose Enamel Hearts (already in the store) for this adorable slimline card which features a little country girl in a poultry parade! How stinkin’ cute is this?!

I cut my personal go-to size 3-3/4″ x 9″ slimline card base from Basis 110# White cardstock along with layering panels from Pop Tone Tangy Orange cardstock and Basis White cardstock. I cut a strip from a dainty floral pattern print in the Little Cowgirl Birthday 4×9 Slimline Cardstock pack. I stamped the flag (from the Little Cowgirl Birthday stamps) on a piece of yellow pattern print in the Little Cowgirl Birthday 6×6 Cardstock pack. I stamped a sentiment from the Little Cowgirl Birthday Sentiments stamps in brown ink on the flag and cut it with the coordinating outline die.

I stamped the little girl (from the Little Cowgirl Birthday stamps), and the goose, chicken and fence (from the Little Cowgirl Birthday Party Animals stamps), all in black ink on Basis White cardstock. I colored them with alcohol markers and cut them with the coordinating outline dies. I stamped another sentiment from the Little Cowgirl Birthday Sentiments stamps in brown ink and added several stamped hearts (from the same Sentiments stamp set) and a couple Back to Basics Rose Enamel Hearts.

I cut the inside panels from Pop Tone Tangy Orange and Basis White cardstock, and embellished them with leftover strips of floral cardstock (from the Little Cowgirl Birthday 4×9 Slimline Cardstock pack) and the Tangy Orange cardstock. I stamped the sentiment (from the Little Cowgirl Birthday Sentiments stamps) in brown ink which completed the card.

And one more peek… super happy with how this turned out! These products are so amazing and I love that everything coordinates! The sky is literally the limit!

Life is simple.

Hi everyone! A very Happy Sunday to you – here’s to the beginning of a great week! Today marks the 21st anniversary of the multiple terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in the United States. After all these years, my heart still aches for the families and friends of all those who lost their lives that day. Please take a moment to remember them. Now on to something happy! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today as a guest designer with a fun inspiration project! When I stepped down from the regular team this past May, I agreed to pop in from time to time as a guest designer, either filling in for regular DT members or creating new release samples. Janet is out of town for a couple weeks so you’re seeing me today and will see me again next Sunday! ;) I created a mini slimline retirement card using our Village by the Sea Washi Tape, Wide Wood Washi Tape, Wide Sky Washi Tape and Sun & Cloud Brads! I love creating little scenes on my cards and it was fun watching this one come to life!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from 80# Solar White cardstock which I covered with Wide Sky Washi Tape and Village by the Sea Washi Tape (trimmed along the tops of the buildings). I added a plank created from a narrow strip of 110# Solar White cardstock covered with Wide Wood Washi Tape, and added Sun and Cloud Brads. I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired By Stamping Seaside Sentiments stamp set in StazOn Jet Black ink along with some birds from the Inspired By Stamping Seaside stamp set in black ink.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of CutCardStock Royal Sundance Kraft Fiber cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Ranger Letter It Wedding stamp set in Catherine Pooler Sand Castle ink.

hello mini slimline note card

Hi friends! Has it begun cooling off yet where you are?! Our morning temps here have been glorious for the last few weeks but it still gets pretty warm in the afternoons. We’re SO ready for some Fall weather! I’m super stoked to share that I’ve been chosen to join the Kat Scrappiness Creative Influencers and I’ve popped in this morning to share my debut inspiration project! I created a CAS mini slimline note card with a pretty tone-on-tone framed quilted background.

I used the KS Mini Slimline Quilted Backdrop Die and KS Mini Slimline Tri-Frame Die to create the background which I adhered to a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base. Using the Oopsie Daisy Layered Stamps and Oopsie Daisy Coordinating Dies, I created the daisy cluster which I adhered to the bottom right corner with foam squares. I used the hello die from the KS Reversed Scallop Mini Slimline with Hello Dies to die cut the sentiment. The finishing touch was adding 3mm Sparkling Clear Droplets to the background.

I used a KS Mini Slimline Tri-Frame Die to embellish the inside panel. Since this is a note card, I left the panel blank with plenty of room to write a custom message.

Celebrate with some smooshing!

Hi friends! Happy Thursday and happy 1st day of September! Dang, it sure got here fast! Our new challenge launched this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #61 – Anything Goes + optional Smooshing featuring floating strips with the smooshing! The technique twist is never mandatory to play in our challenges, but I sure hope you try the smooshing technique if you’ve never tried it before – it’s so much fun! Most of the time it’s done with distress inks and water on watercolor paper, but I tried it with alcohol inks and blending solution on Yupo paper and it turned out so cool! Just be sure to wear gloves, lol!

I created the smooshed panel using lemonade, citrus and sailboat blue alcohol inks, Ranger alcohol blending solution and Ranger Yupo paper a couple days before I created the card. I like to wait at least 24 hours before playing with an alcohol ink panel just to be sure it’s good and dry. I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with an acetate panel cut from Grafix Craft Plastic. I trimmed the smooshed panel into strips, adhered them to the acetate with Retractable Tape Runner, and trimmed the panel to be slightly smaller than the card base. I applied Darice double-sided adhesive foam strips to the back of the panel and adhered it to the card base. I die cut the sentiment from CutCardStock Basis Blue cardstock and adhered it to the next to the last strip with Bearly Art precision craft glue. I added several YNS navy blue Glitter Gumdrops to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip trimmed off the front panel and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Basis Blue cardstock. I affixed a CRAFTplorations Happy Happy Clear Sticker and adhered the panel to blue cardstock.

And one more look… this alcohol ink smooshed panel is amazing! And of course the sky is the limit with regard to colors and the random patterns you get! Fun play! ;)

Thanks So Much Mini Slimline

Howdy, friends! Happy Fri-YAY! I hope you have a good weekend planned and will be doing something fun! I have a pretty Tape Runner DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring some of my favorite dies, and of course, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner. I used the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Foliage Frame die and Reversed Scallop Mini Slimline dies which look amazing together. For the sentiment, I used Waffle Flower Bold Alpha dies along with the Waffle Flower Sentiment Additions stamps and dies which also look amazing together. I think I love this card, lol!

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner. Wet glue was used only to adhere the sentiment, leaves and gemstones. I cut a mini slimline card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# Natural cardstock. Next, I die cut the foliage frame from CutCardStock Bright Gold cardstock using the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Foliage Frame die and a reversed scallop frame from Basis Dark Red cardstock using the Kat Scrappiness Reversed Scallop Mini Slimline dies which I adhered to the card base.

I die cut the thanks sentiment from Basis Dark Red using the Waffle Flower Bold Alpha dies and adhered it to the card front. Using the Waffle Flower Sentiment Additions stamps, I stamped the second portion of the sentiment in Catherine Pooler Cranberry Fizz ink on Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock, die cut it with the coordinating Waffle Flower Sentiment Additions die, and adhered it to the card front across the large thanks sentiment. The finishing touch was adding several gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Ruby Radiance Embellishment Mix using my Trinity Pick Up Stick.

I cut the inside panel from Baronial Ivory cardstock and embellished it with a die cut reversed scallop frame cut from CutCardStock Basis Dark Red cardstock using the Kat Scrappiness Reversed Scallop Mini Slimline dies. I stamped the sentiment in Catherine Pooler Cranberry Fizz ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base.

And one more look… really loving how this card turned out! OMGoodness, I love it when a card turns out exactly the way I envisioned it! And, of course, it’s held together with the best adhesive, Tape Runner!

Thinking of You

Hey everybody, Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a great weekend! I just can’t believe how fast the days are zipping by… so hard to believe we’re on the downslide to the end of August already! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring my favorite Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock that I paired with our textured Blue Hydrangea cardstock, Brown Bag Kraft paper and Beach Side Prints cardstock. I love a blue and brown color combo, and even with a few brown pearls, this card has a masculine feel.

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from Beach Side Prints cardstock and a reversed scallop frame from Blue Hydrangea cardstock using the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Reversed Scallop Dies. Using the Kat Scrappiness Thinking of You Word Die with Shadow, I cut the sentiment from Blue Hydrangea cardstock and the shadow from Brown Bag Kraft Paper and adhered them together. I adhered the frame to the panel and adhered them to the card base, and then added the sentiment. The finishing touch was adding several Eyelet Outlet 3mm brown pearls.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from the Beach Side Prints cardstock and Brown Bag Kraft Paper. I cut another reversed scallop frame from Blue Hydrangea cardstock using the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Reversed Scallop Dies and adhered it to the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Paper Smooches Lovely Thoughts stamp set in Catherine Pooler Over Coffee ink, and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base.

And one more look… what a great color combo along with amazing cardstock and dies! Love how this one turned out!

Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day! I have some great news to share with you today – I have taken over the Ally’s Angels challenge blog for the lovely Ally who is no longer able to devote the necessary time to keep it running. I’ll only be making a few outward changes to the blog but Ally’s basic structure and rules will remain the same (for now anyway), so come on over and play! All challenges are Anything Goes and we’re in need of a few more designers, so if you have room on your plate, let me know! Only one project a month (due by the 5th), a blog and good photos… easy peasy! My debut DT inspiration project for Challenge #61 is a super cute chocolate bar birthday card I created for my daughter-in-law, and she loved it! Well… who wouldn’t, lol?! This card was featured in a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter a while back HERE, and I thought it was so stinkin’ cute, I just had to make one!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock along with a short panel from CutCardStock Bright Gold Foil cardstock and a slightly shorter panel that I covered with Eyelet Outlet Fox & Flowers washi tape which made the wrapper. For the chocolate squares, I punched nine 1″ squares from the Basis Brown cardstock and adhered them to the top portion of the card front. Similarly, I punched nine 3/4″ squares from the brown cardstock and adhered one to the center of each 1″ square with 3-D foam squares. I adhered the two short wrapper panels together and then to the card front. I embellished the wrapper with ephemera and enamel dots from the Scrapbook & Cards Today February 2021 Sampler.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a leftover strip of CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock. I stamped one portion of the sentiment (from the Stampin’ Up Happy & Heartfelt stamp set) in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, and the other portion (from the Stampin’ Up For The Record stamp set) in Delicata Gold Glitz ink, and layered the panel on CutCardStock Bright Gold Foil cardstock.

And one more peek… don’t you just love this?! You know you want to make one! I do believe this has moved to the number one spot on my list of all-time loves! ;)
