Hi everyone! As you know, the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog is turning six this month, and to celebrate, we’re hosting a Sixth Birthday Blog Hop & Challenge lasting six days, with six sponsors and six prizes! Be sure to visit the blog to check out all the details! I’m showcasing each of my blog hop projects individually so I can enjoy sharing them in some challenges.

The next blog hop project I like to share is a gorgeous purple birthday card I created using a couple stamps from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Whole Shebang stamp set. This stamp set has some of the coolest sentiments ever!

2019_03030020a

I layered a piece of digital paper on dark purple cardstock to create the background. I stamped the large birthday sentiment on white cardstock and cut it with a stitched rectangle die. I cut another stitched rectangle die cut from medium purple cardstock and another stitched scallop die cut from the dark purple cardstock, and then layered them all together. I adhered them to the background which was then adhered to the card base. I added some white gel pen dots to the sentiment and a few gemstones to complete the front.

2019_03030021a

I decorated the inside panel with leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front, then stamped the sentiment.

And one final look… loving how this turned out! What an amazing stamp set!

Another blog hop project I’d like to share is an anniversary card I created using the super awesome Ballroom Brenda digital image from Dr. Digi’s House of Stamps! John never disappoints with his humor! I colored this image with my Studio 71 alcohol markers and added a sentiment and a gold heart die cut directly on the image panel.

2019_03030013a

I used coordinating striped and dotted papers layered on pink and white cardstock along with an added narrow strip of the gold mirror cardstock to compliment the gold heart.

2019_03030014a

I layered the inside panel on a piece of the striped paper, stamped the sentiment, and added one more gold heart.

The next blog hop project I’d like to share is a clean and simple thank you card created with the One in a Chameleon clear stamp set and matching One in a Chameleon lawn cuts from Lawn Fawn is super adorable! I started with a top-fold card base and adhered a strip of perfectly plaid chill paper down the left side. I used the cross-stitch border die from the stitched borders lawn cuts on the paper strip prior to adhering it to the card base.

2019_0303005a

I stamped the chameleon, branch and leaves on white cardstock, colored them with my Studio 71 alcohol markers, and cut them with the dies. I adhered them to the card front and then stamped the sentiment in a vertical fashion along the edge of the paper strip.

2019_0303006a

I decorated the inside panel with leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front, stamped a sentiment and cut it with a stitched circle die, and adhered it to the panel.

My final blog hop project is a fun friendship card using A Girl and Her Shoes stamp set from STAMPlorations! This is one of my favorite stamp sets. The top flap on this card has been cut off with a curved scallop edge die. I stamped a fab pair of boots on the bottom flap and colored them with a Studio 71 alcohol marker.

2019_03030017a

I covered the top flap with a piece of pretty dotted patterned paper and added a die cut sentiment, voila… we have a ‘gorgeous’ card!

Here’s a shot of the very simple inside with a Marilyn Monroe quote hidden beneath the scallop flap. Love, love, love!

Congratulations on your Graduation!

Hi everyone! Happy Happy – hope you’ve had a great week! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #119 – Anything Goes! We are being sponsored this month by DRS Designs so be sure to come over and play with us for a chance to win a prize! I created a clean and simple graduation card using the awesome Culmination Graduation Greeting and I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out.

Leslie

I started with a bi-level card base – I cut about 3/4″ off the bottom of the front flap. I printed the greeting on white cardstock and cut it with a dotted rectangle die. I created two more rectangle die cuts and layered them all together with white foam between the layers. I added a tiny plaid bow and two clear rhinestones to finish the front.

2019_02240012a

I added a strip of plaid patterned paper across the bottom of the inside of the card base. I stamped a sentiment in black ink on a stitched die cut panel and adhered the panel to the inside.

2019_02240013a

Here’s one final shot of the completed card. I really L-O-V-E this greeting and I see more cards using it in my future, lol!

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.

2018_11240006a

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! ;)
