Her Heart was a Secret Garden Journal Page

Hi everyone! I’m back with a semi quick (lots of fussy cutting) journal page I created using Eileen Hull’s Snail Mail Everyday Sentiments Stamps by Maker Forte.

I placed the grid stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with a Dark Brown Chocolate Ink and stamped a piece of Cream Cardstock. Once dry I cut off the off the cream colored edges. As you can see I accidentally got ink in one of the boxes when I stamped the image but no worries it will be covered.

I gathered up scraps of patterned cardstock, a flatback pearl, resin flower, thread and I fussy cut images I had printed from itKuPiLLiimaginarium on Etsy.

I also used a small heart die from the Mitten Box Diecut and the leaf sprig die from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to decorate page.

Now all I have to do is add it to my art journal that I’ve been slowly filling. If you would more inspiration stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to see what her team has been up to. You can find her blog HERE.

And I Think to Myself Card

Hi everyone! Did you know that Eileen Hull now has a line of rubber stamps? Well, she does! You can find her stamps at Maker Forte which can be found HERE.

But I’m back this week with a card I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Wonderful World of Flowers Stamp Set.

I had this 5″x6″ card base I had started but never finished (story of my life tons of unfinished projects ūüėČ ). So I thought this base would show case this set of stamps really well.

First I placed the flowers and sentiment onto the MISTI Stamp Tool, inked with Waterproof Black Ink onto a Heavy Weight Cardstock. Next I used a combo of Watercolors and Colored Pencils to fill in the flowers and once dry I fussy cut a part.

Before adhering the sentiment to the card base I framed the sentiment with a piece of patterned cardstock.

I cut the leaves off of the flowers before shaping all with a Stylus. I added the flowers and leaves to the sentiment along with a button and Dew Drop to the center of each flower and thread bows to finish off the card.

Be sure to stop by Eileen’s blog to see what her Inspiration and Educator Teams have been up to. You can find past posts HERE, HERE and HERE.

Thinking of You Slimline Card

Hey everyone! I know it has been a minute since my last post but I am back with a quick card I created. Have you seen and heard of slimline cards? It apparently the newest thing to create or I’m just now seeing them (I’m always late to the party) and I thought why not try to make one myself?

The slimline card measures 3.5″x8.5″ (folded) and will fit into a number 10 size envelope ( business size). Instead of measuring and cutting the cardstock to the exact measurements I used Eileen Hull’s Journal Diecut to cut out the base of the card. All I did was fold the cardstock in half and place it where the indention in the diecut that creates the spine wouldn’t cut into the paper. (I used a different cardstock to practice on in the photo below) I used a little washi tape to hold the cardstock in place while I ran it through the Diecut Machine.

I stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper the butterfly from the Tim Holtz’s Perspective Stamp Set and the Thinking of You and label stamps from the Simple Sayings Stamp Set in a water proof Black Ink. I used an assortment of inks from my stash to watercolor the butterfly and once dry I fussy cut the butterfly and sentiment out. I used an oval shaped embossing folder on a piece of cardstock (this is from Brenda Walton and is retired) and two other pieces of cardstock that I adhered together to mat the butterfly. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back before placing on the card base. I also matted the sentiment with a scrap piece of cardstock and glued underneath the butterfly.

I think I will have to make more of these! They are so easy to create using the Journal Diecut to make the card base with! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Let’s Set Sail Card with DCC and Maker’s Movement Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share my project for this month’s blog hop with Designer Connection Crafts and Maker’s Movement!

93970375_3404191776262677_7417199419709194240_n.jpg107928231_2801555306611589_8097529066641871709_n.jpg

First thing I did was cut a piece of Kraft Cardstock 5 1/2″x 5 1/2″ folded to create the base for my card. I used a 6×6 pad of 7Gypsies Maritime (retired) on the front and all it took was two sheets from the collection to decorate. One of the sheets I fussy cut, distressed and rolled and added Foam Pop Dots to the back to add dimension and depth.
For the bottle I cut two bottle diecuts from the Clear Acetate Sheets and one outline of the bottle from the Double-sided Adhesive Craft Foam,the bottle stopper from cork and one from a piece of teal patterned cardstock. I peeled the backing and applied the acetate to the bottom side of the foam outline. I placed the ship and “Let’s Set Sail” Sentiment stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with water proof Black Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I then used the appropriate diecuts to cut each one out. I watercolored the ship and once dry placed inside the outline of the bottle along with the cork, seed beads and sequins before placing the other solid piece of acetate over it. I applied the teal outline over the acetate, lightly distressed the edges of the bottle and adhered to the front of the card. 
I inked the edges of the stamped sentiment before gluing to the bottom corner of the card. I also added bits of inked cheese cloth to give a little texture to the card. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Also be sure to stop by the DCC blog and see what the other designers have created! You can find the blog post HERE
