Always be an Original Card

Hi everyone! I am back with a quick card I created using some inks and a creative card by ColorBox. Last week was very crazy because my husband had a health scare and wound up being sent to the ER by his personal doctor and then was admitted to the hospital and kept over night for a procedure. 😳 So all my big plans for being productive and posting for last week was put on hold. But anyway…lets get started!

I stamped the Escape Pigment Ink onto a glass tray, add water to each color and painted around the building images on Cityscape Creative Card

I used a “dappling effect”with the Paint Brush to create a cloudy look on the base of the card and then I let dry.

I cut two strips of patterned cardstock and adhered near the top of the card. Next I cut out one house from the House One Diecuts (Spellbinders retired) or you can cut a house out by hand. I adhered the house diecut to the card and add mini gems to the top of the house die to create a roof.

I printed from the computer the sentiment “Always be an Original”, punched out with a decorative punch, inked around the edges with the Escape Pigment Ink and adhere to the card.

I punched two flowers and two leaves from patterned cardstock, shape and glue to the sentiment and house. I  also added flat back pearls to the center of each flower and adhered a couple loops of thread underneath one of the flowers. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!

ClearSnap: Need a Good Cry Kleenex Belly Band

Hi everyone! I want to share a project I created using some of the new stamp sets that ClearSnap has come out with this month! 

I started with the ColorBox: Buttercup Clear Stamp set, some patterned cardstock and a 8.4″x8.4″Kleenex Tissue Pack for this project.

First I cut one 2″x10″ patterned cardstock and 2 1/2″x10″ orange cardstock and wrapped the 2 1/2″x10″ around pack of Kleenex and adhere at the end of the cardstock to create a belly band. I completed the same step for the 2″x10″ patterned cardstock.

I cut one Beaded Circle Diecut from the Yellow and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock and adhere to the center of the belly band.

I stamped the “You Need a Good Cry” sentiment with Wicked Black Ink onto a piece of cream cardstock and cut the end of cardstock to create a banner. I inked the edges of the banner with Marigold Ink and adhere to the belly band.

I adhered sequins and gems around the Beaded Circle Diecut and punched two seals from patterned cardstock and adhere to the corner of the “You Need a Good Cry” sentiment.

Next I punched a heart from patterned cardstock and glued on top of the seals.I punched a mini flower, leaf sprig from patterned cardstock and cut one leaf off of the sprig and adhere to the back of the flower before gluing to the heart. I finished off by adding a gem to the center of the flower. There you have it! If you have a friend that is down and having a rough time this is a perfect pick me up that hopefully after they have a good cry will bring a smile to their face. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating! 

Candy Sleighs

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a quick Christmas project I created. I found these Candy Sleighs over on Pinterest and decided to create a few to add with some gifts. 

I didn’t add as many miniature candy bars as was shown but it still makes a nice little gift.

If you have any questions please let me know.
