All Stamping

Today's card uses all stamps and no designer papers. For the background I chose the dictionary background stamp, and the green stripe is stamped twice from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. Sometimes I just don't have the right designer papers, so stamping my own is great fun! 

Then sentiment is stamped, then punched out, and I backed it with another punch so it would stand out a bit. A few punched flowers and candy dots scattered about finishes it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, it's been somewhat of a busy week, and haven't been in my craft room much. But there's always the weekend! :)

Today's card is one I made a couple weeks ago, and am just now sharing it! I wanted to use the Smokey Slate cardstock/ink along with Rose Red ink for the stamping. I've used the Flowering Flourishes stamp set for the main background, and the sentiment is from the Peace, Love & Cupcakes stamp set. 

I've scattered a few pearls around, and thought it was pretty done. Well, when I was finished, I realized this would make a perfect Christmas card with the Peace sentiment! I didn't have that in mind at all, but it will work!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, have a great one!

Birthday Birdie

Hi there! Today's card is another that I made for Holly's online class challenge. I am very pleased with the way this one turned out.

I've used the 2013-2015 In Color paper stack, Simply Sketched Hostess stamp set, Linen Thread, In Color sequins, and a couple of oval punches on the sentiment.

I'm hoping to get another video made soon, maybe this weekend ;) So be on the look out for that! Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a super weekend!!

My upline Holly, started her Fresh Cuts online class this week. There is still time to sign up, just click on the link at my sidebar. Everyday she posts a new project with a video and a downloadable pdf instruction sheet. She also posts challenges for you everyday. The card I'm sharing today was for one of those challenges.

I didn't use any designer papers on this, everything is stamped. I've used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for the backgrounds, and the Four You stamp set for the sentiment that I punched out with the Wide Oval punch.

Thanks for having a look!

Layer it Up

Hello! Today's card share is totally layered up! I didn't have any real design in mind when I was making this, so I just kept adding layers until I was happy with it!

The splotchy background was made using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, the designer papers are from the All Abloom paper stack, and the saying is from the Four You stamp set. I added some layering with a few punched shapes. I punched the heart, then punched again with the small scalloped circle, so it's open. I thought it was a fun look!

I added some sequins and twine as embellishments, and stopped there. I think it's kind of a fun and funky card!! Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day!!

Timeless Black and White

Using black and white in any creative way, will always be timeless. You can dress it up or down, and it still looks elegant. For my card today, I have used only one stamp image from the Flowering Flourishes stamp set and I stamped it with Smokey Slate ink. The rest of the card is die cuts and punches.

The sentiment is die cut using the Little Letters framelits. I used 3 layers of chipboard, and one layer of Basic Black cardstock. Here is a close up of them:

The flowers are punched with the same cardstock, and have Silver Mini Brads in their centers. I added a few rhinestones around to add some sparkle.

A timeless and classic Hello card I hope someone will enjoy receiving! Thank you for stopping by for a look!

Punch Board Treat Box

I have another cute treat box to share today that uses the Stampin Up Punch Board. I really love this tool! I found this tutorial on YouTube using the words 'stampin up' in the search box. Now, this punch board is made by We R Memory Keepers, and there are lots more projects using those search words as well.

I've used the new Lullaby designer series paper to make this, along with Crisp Cantaloupe and Whisper White cardstock. A few punched shapes to accent it, and the matching bakers twine to tie off the treat bag. I actually have a roll of washi tape in mine. That will give you an idea of it's size.

Here is the full front view, the back looks just the same. There is no lid, it's just all open.

Thank you for having a look!!

Stenciled Stars

Hey there! Today's card uses the new masks(or stencils) I call them, from Stampin Up. The stars also come with a heart pattern as well. They are larger stencils, maybe 9x9? Didn't measure them exactly, but they are a good size! I've used the sponge daubers to fill in the stars with Lost Lagoon, and Wild Wasabi inks. I also punched a few stars out with coordinating cardstock from the Itty Bitty Punch pack. I stamped the saying from the For You set, and die cut it out with the Ovals framelits.

A fun card for any gender or age I think! Thanks for having a look!!

Triangles and Chevrons

Hi there! Today's card share uses some geometric shapes! The triangle background is a new embossing folder that Stampin Up added. It has a bit of a distressed look to it. And the chevron designer paper is from last years Spring mini, called Tea for Two. It's now retired, but I love the patterns and colors in it, and just have to use it up! The chevron pattern is already there, I just trimmed around a few and added them to the embossed piece. I punched a few flowers using the other side of this designer paper. The saying is from the exclusive Hostess set called Hello There. You can only get this stamp set by hosting a party with at least $150.00 in sales. The saying is stamped with Calypso Coral, and punched out.
Thank you for stopping by today, and have a great weekend!!

Happy 4th of July!!

Happy Independence Day everyone! I have a couple of patriotic projects to share with you!
The first is this sweet little mini box! I think it would be perfect to hold a mini Peppermint Patty, or other mini sized candy bar!
The second is a decorated treat bag! I wanted to make a rosette, so I used red, white, and blue cardstock to make this one! I haven't made one of these for so long!! It's very festive!!
That's it for me today! Have a great time at all the cookouts, and be safe watching those fireworks!!
