Stars on the 4th of July Card

Hi everyone! If you celebrated Independence Day like me and my family I hope you had a great time. Mine was spent lounging in the pool or on the lounge chair reading with a little eating on the side. ūüėé I want to share a 4th of July card I created for Momenta.
I started by cutting and folding a piece of cardstock (retired Momenta 12″x12″ Basic Paper Pad Collection) 5 1/2″x4 1/4″ to create the base for the card. I¬†selected a piece of blue cardstock from the¬†Gemstones 8″x8″ Paper Pad¬†and with the¬†Star Confetti Metal Die Template¬†I cut out one diecut. I adhered a piece of white cardstock to the back of the diecut before adding Foam Pop Dots and placing on the card base.

I used a 2″ Watercolor Doily but flipped it over on the back since it was white and adhered to the corner of the diecut.¬†
From the same blue cardstock I cut the number 4 with the Numbers Cut and Emboss Template and adhered to the doily. I cut the word July from red cardstock from the Metallic Paper Pad using the Months of the Year Cutting Template.

I finished the card by adding sequins, gems and a red twine bow to the card. Be sure to stop by Momenta’s website to see the latest¬†projects! You can find their site HERE. As always if you have any questions about this card¬†please let me know.

I would also like to submit this card for the following challenge:

Bless the USA Card

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a 4th of July card I created for ClearSnap with you all today! 

I started by inking  an Art Dauber with Peacock Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and ink over front of the Burlap Creative Card. 

I inked the Pledge Allegiance Stamp with Wicked Black Pigment Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of white cardstock.¬†I cut the stamped image to 4″x5″ and roughed up edges of stamped image.¬†Next I inked an art dauber with Chianti Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and inked the edges of stamped image.¬†I rolled the bottom edge of the stamped image under and adhered, added Foam Pop Dots to back and placed to the corner of card base.

I inked the letter “U” of the USA Wood Stamp with Abyss Pigment Ink and the “SA” with Chianti Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and stamped onto a piece of white cardstock. I cut a “v” in the end to create a banner and added foam pop dots to back and place on lower half of card base.

From the Thankful Clear Stamps Set I placed on the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked the “BLESS” stamp with Chianti Pigment Ink and the “HEART” stamp with Abyss Pigment Ink and stamp both onto a piece of white cardstock. I cut the “BLESS” image out and inked an art dauber with Chianti Pigment Ink and inked the edges of the “BLESS” image. I cut with a pair of scissors the “T”, “H” and “E” from the “HEART” image out and adhered above the USA banner. I added foam pop dots to back of “BLESS” image and place above the word THE.


I adhered red tulle, thread, star and a sequin with red pearl to USA banner. I adhered a star and red pearl to top of the pledge allegiance image and added three clear glossy dots to bottom corner of card.

And there you have it! What do you do for the 4th of July? Cookout? Spend the day at the beach or just enjoy the day with family and friends? Also always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Stars and Stripes Patriotic Girl Box

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with an easy 4th of July project I created using the newest Taos Petal Points Collection and the Mermaid Paintbox Collection by ColorBox. I also used some art screens, a rollagraph and Eileen Hull’s Stacking Drawer Diecut to create this fun little patriotic drawer. Lets get started!

I placed White Chipboard on top of Stacking Drawer Box Diecut and placed between cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine.

I placed the Stars Art Screen on top of the “sleeve” of the Stacking Drawer Box Diecut and inked an Art Dauber with Peacock Pigment Ink from the¬†Taos Petal Point Collection¬†and ink over Stars Art Screen. Once I got the area I was stenciling covered I removed the art screen.

Next I placed the Lattice Art Screen on top of the front of the drawer diecut. I inked an art dauber with Chianti Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection. I only inked the front of the “drawer” since that would be the only area seen. Once I completed that I removed the art screen.

I put the sleeve and drawer diecuts together according to directions on the diecut packaging. I cut cording long enough to tie a bow around drawer to keep closed. Next I cut s strip of blue cardstock and adhere around the center of sleeve and adhered red ric rac around blue cardstock.

I inked the Doll Faces Rollagraph with Wicked Black Pigment Dye Ink and rolled onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I selected the side view face and cut out. I saved the other images for future projects. ūüėä

I inked the glass tray, added water and painted the face image with the following Inks: Mermaid Paintbox Collection: Face-Papaya Cream, Lips, highlight cheeks and side of nose with Berry. Taos Petal Point: Eyes-Turtle and Hair-Amber. 

I added a blue cardstock mat to the girl image and added Foam Pop Dots to back and place on top of drawer.

I adhered a piece of red tulle behind girl image and added buttons, stars, sequin and red flat back pearls to the top of drawer.  

I also added a cancelled U.S. postage stamp to upper corner of box for some visual fun. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

July 4th Tag

Hi everyone and Happy 4th of July! It looks like we will have a rainy 4th here so probably no cooking out and lounging in pool. But I guess I will gather up some craft supplies and binge watch¬†Netflix. ūüėé I wanted to share a quick tag I created using the Tag & Bookplate Diecut. I started by cutting the tag from Navy and Ivory Ticking Cardstock. Next I adhered a doily to the front of the tag along with some red patterned cardstocks.

Next I cut four patterned straws down and added a little adhesive to the side of each straw and then glued together. I tied red and white twine around the straws, adhered the Paper Dolls patriotic girl to the straws and then glued to the corner of the tag. I used the number four embossing folder from the Texture Trades Number Set.  I fussy cut around the four after embossing and lightly sanded the raised edges of the four and added to the corner of the tag. I adhered sequins and gems sporadically on the tag and seaming binding, Ric Rac and twine was tied off at the top. 
As always if you have any questions about this tag  please let me know.

Also I would like to submit this project for consideration for the following challenges:

America the Beautiful

Hi everyone! I want to share a card I created for the upcoming 4th of July holiday. ¬†I started out with a 4 1/2″x5 3/4″ of8 lb¬†Ivory Cardstock¬†which I spritzed with the following: Rum Punch and True Turquoise Glimmer Mists and Polka Dot Pink Chalkboard Glimmer Mist. The Aqua Plain Jane Stained Glass I spattered¬†and used a lid to make designs on the cardstock.

Once dry I embossed and rubbed a brown chalk ink over the raised images to bring out the words. Plus I was looking for a faded and time worn look.

I cut and folded the Navy and Kraft Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock to make a 6″x6″ cardbase. Adhere a 2″x4″ piece of ¬†Red and White Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock¬†to base. Also you can either adhered lace to the embossed image or if you have a “lace punch” you can punch from the¬†8 lb Ivory Cardstock.

Added pop dots and blue thread to the back of the embossed image and then adhere to the base of the card.

Next fussy cut the Statue of Liberty from the Bon Voyage on Ivory Cardstock. Spray a¬†small amount of Monolith Chalkboard Glimmer Mist into a bowl. Add a little water and then paint the entire Statue of Liberty and once dry glue to the corner of the embossed image. Since I couldn’t find the right sentiment¬†for my card. I printed it from the computer. I distressed, cut both ends to create a banner, adhered on top of a strip of¬†Red and White Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock¬†and finished off with sequins¬†and Dew Drops.
If you have any questions about this card please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Yankee Doodle Annie

Hi everyone! I’m here to share my project for Eileen Hull’s Art with Heart Challenge which this month’s theme is Summer Celebrations. Since the 4th of July is just around the corner this is what I came up with.
I had started with the Scoreboards Diecut 3D Food Jar with Spoon. I turned it upside down and tada it looked like a doll head to me. I cut the base out in mattboard and then covered with flesh colored felt. I cut a nose from pink cardstock, added white sequins, two black dew drops and I painted a white dot on each dew drop for the eyes and adhered to the face. I also added a tiny enamel heart, that I colored with a pink sharpie to make it darker, for the mouth. To finish off her face I gave her rosy cheeks using my chalk pastels.

I also used the Sizzix die Flowers, Daisies #2 to create the hair with. I used three of those 8″x10″ sheets of orange felt to do her hair‚Ķthat was the most time¬†consuming part of her. Since there is a small hole in the center of the flower I cut open the¬†flower and adhered it around her head.

I cut out Annie’s body from mattboard with the¬†Sizzix Scoreboards XL Die Vase 3D¬†and covered with a dark blue scrapbook paper. I adhered the head to the body and let dry.

I cut from red scrapbook paper Annie’s sleeves. I rolled up, glued one end and left the other open. I cut two small flesh colored circles for hands and adhered in the opening of the sleeve. Next I added lace, sequins, dew drops, button and baker’s twine to finish her off.

I plan on giving this little Annie to my mom since she has a collection of Raggedy Ann and Andy‚Ķshe ¬†still has my Andy and my sister’s Anne from when we were little. ūüôā
