snowball fight

Hi everyone! Happy Friday and February 1st! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #118 – Anything Goes with optional twist of Monochrome! We are being sponsored this month by The Paper Shelter so come on over and play with us for a chance to win a prize!

I created a fun quirky friendship card using the adorable Snowball Fight digital stamp which includes the focal image and background paper. Loving the blue/teal/green blend which is perfect for a monochrome project!

Leslie

I printed the background paper several times and cut out the scalloped circles in the center and layered them. I embellished all the snowflakes with Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. I fussy cut the image and popped it up on foam squares for a little dimension. I printed the sentiment on vellum, cut it in a strip and added it to the left side, then layered the entire panel on gold cardstock. I added several gold sequins to finish the front.

I created the sentiment for the inside on the computer, cut the panel and layered it on gold cardstock.

Old Guys Rule

Hi everyone! It’s January 1st and I wonder how fast THIS year will fly by! A 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 #117 – Anything Goes! We’re being sponsored this month by the wonderful Sparkle N Sprinkle and I’ve used the super cool Woody Rubber Stamp Set for my hubby’s birthday card! His birthday isn’t until June but I like to work ahead, lol!

2018_11160001a

I used a striped embossing folder for the front panel but I stamped the sentiment before embossing it, and then added a strip of corrugated kraft paper after embossing it. I stamped the image on white cardstock in black ink and then again in Versamark, and then clear embossed it. I watercolored the image using several ink pads and my Niji brush. When it dried, I cut it with a stitched oval die and then mounted it on the front of the card with foam tape. The finishing touch was two sparkly brads.

2018_11160002a

For the inside, I embellished the panel with strips of teal and black cardstock, and then stamped the sentiment. Very cool, I think! ;)

Let it Snow

Hello, my crafty friends! Here we are, diving into the last month of the year! A new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you for LTSCB #116 – Season’s Greetings! We are being sponsored this month by DRS Designs and I used the super cute Vertical Let It Snow stamp. This was such a fun card to create and has been added to my Christmas card stash!

Leslie

I cut a bi-level card base, meaning the front flap is cut about an inch shorter than the back. I used a scallop edge punch and backed it with a piece of gold mirror cardstock that was also cut with the scallop edge punch. I used a clear sparkle overlay marker on the snowman to give him a little ‘snowy’ shimmer, and a snow marker with heat tool on the SNOW letters for a little ‘snowy’ interest.

2018_11110009a

For the inside, I used a piece of brick wall patterned paper on the right side which shows when the card is closed. I printed a large digital sentiment and cut it with a dotted rectangle die and aligned it with the edge of the patterned paper.

And one more look… I love how this turned out and hope that the recipient will love it, too!

Shoes Note Cards- Set of 6

Hi everyone! It’s Thursday (that means it’s almost Friday), it’s November 1st, and it’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog! I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #115 – Anything Goes! We are being sponsored this month by STAMPlorations so be sure to come on over and play for the chance to win a $15 gift certificate! PLUS, Shery is offering gift code LOVETOSCRAP20 for our challenge participants to use during the whole month of November which will give them 20% off their order! How cool is that?!

For that friend with a shoe fetish, I created a set of 6 note cards using “A Girl and Her Shoes” stamp set! OMGosh, what a fun set of stamps! I left these note cards blank on the inside to use for whatever the heart desires.

2018_1028007a

These were super easy. I used a Sizzix/Tim Holtz Mixed Media die to cut the negative space on each card base front, then I layered a piece of brown bag coverstock on the back side. I stamped the sentiment on the front of each card base and then stamped the platform shoes on various Fall colors of cardstock scraps. I stamped the shoe image again with Versamark and embossed with Hero Arts clear embossing powder. I fussy cut each pair of shoes and popped them up on dimensionals on the card base fronts. I then punched two tiny coordinating hearts for each card and adhered them on the fronts.

Super easy, super fun, and practical! And I love how they turned out! Here is an up-close shot of each card…

Autumn Blessings

** 10/11/18 Top 3 Pick at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog! **

Hi everyone! Happy Monday and it’s already October 1st! A new challenge is live this morning over Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #114 – Fall Back! We’re being sponsored this month by the amazing CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and we’d love to see a Fall project which could include Fall, Autumn, Thanksgiving and/or Halloween! I created a pretty Autumn card using the gorgeous Autumn Blessings Stamps and Acorn Fri-Dies from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!

Leslie

Fall is my favorite season and it was totally easy finding Fall colored paper to go with the cardstock, stamps and dies. Everything just went together seamlessly. I cut a tag and embossed the sentiment on it, and then cut all the leaves in pairs (two of each color) and arranged them on/under the tag. I love corrugated paper so I cut a strip of that, and then the final touch were a few gemstones.

2018_0930005a

I decorated the inside panel with a leftover strip of paper from the front and stamped a continuation of the sentiment on the inside.

2018_0930006a

Here’s one final angled shot to show the dimension. I just love how this turned out!

We are being sponsored this month by DRS Designs so come on over and play with us for a chance to win a prize! I created a sweet CAS Happy Summer card using Watermelon and Friend from DRS Designs. This has to be one of the cutest stamps ever!

Leslie

I stamped the image in black in the bottom right corner of the top layering panel and watercolored it using my Niji water brush. Once it was dry, I layered the panel on coordinating cardstock and then onto the card base which I had cut with a scalloped edge punch for a little interest.

2018_07210002a

I created the inside sentiment on the computer and layered the panel on the coordinating cardstock. Loving how this turned out!
