Lets Celebrate! Card

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a card I created for Eileen’s birthday that was a couple of weeks ago! 

I started by cutting a Ornate, Flip-its #2 Card Diecut (retired) from double sided patterned card. 

On the back of the card I adhered to strips of patterned cardstock and printed from my computer the sentiments “It’s Your Birthday!” and “Lets Celebrate”. I cut out the “It’s Your Birthday!” sentiment and glued to the strip.

From a piece of vellum I cut the Spellbinders Beaded Circles Diecut (retired but found a few on Amazon) and adhered to the flip part of the card along with two strips of patterned cardstock.

The digital image of the vintage women I purchased from Lisa’s Altered Art which you can find HERE. I printed and fussy cut the image of the women with one of the party hat out and adhered to the card. 

I added Stickles to the collars and sleeves of each of the women’s outfits and let dry.

I cut from various patterned cardstock a flower and leaf sprig from the Flower and Leaves Journaling Cards Diecuts, inked the edges of the flower with gold ink and covered the leaf sprig completely with Stickles (let dry first) and adhere both to the corner of the card.

I added the sequin, Glossy Dot and thread to the flower and finished by gluing the sentiment to the bottom of the card. My card got to Eileen a “little late” but that was ok because she got to celebrate her birthday just a little bit longer. 😉 As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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

Dog Gone Birthday Card

Hey everyone! I wanted to share a quick card I created with y’all today! I had actually started the base of this card a couple of years ago (I only had the pink patterned cardstock on the base of the card) and wound up putting it a side and then completely misplacing it. 😳 I came across it while looking for something else and decided to finally finish it. I started by inking the edges of the card with a chalk ink and then I added the scalloped diecut, banners and I printed the sentiment from the computer.

The girl and dog images are from Lisa’s Altered Art on etsy. I printed and fussy cut the image out and adhered to the card. I cut from patterned cardstock the little party hats which I added to each dog.

I dug into my flower stash and added store bought paper flowers and I also adhered two flowers that I had leftover from a pervious project. These I had cut from Crinoline fabric using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts,inked with ClearSnap ink and added two Glossy Dots. There you have it! A quick and simple card that should have been finished a couple of years ago!😂 As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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

Candid Strawberry Moments Layout

Pink and Main and ClearSnap Blog Hop

Welcome to our blog hop! We hope you enjoy the inspiration found on the teams blogs from Pink and Main and ClearSnap.
For my project I decided to create a layout using the Candid Moments Rubber Stamps Set and Rainbow Glossy Dots from Pink and Main and an assortment of Eileen Hull’s ColorBox Blends from ClearSnap.

I started my layout by cutting the 12″x12″ Cheerful Two Cardstock by Authentique down to 8″x8″. Next I cut a ColorBox Creative Cards Tiny Dots in half. On a glass tray I inked the following ColorBox Blends onto the tray: Wildberry, Tutu, Frog and Leaf and I misted the inks with water. I loaded a brush with each color and applied the Tiny Dot card base. I then misted with water to get a running paint effect and once dry I inked the edges with Wildberry.

I stamped on a piece of watercolor paper one of the camera images using Archival Dye Wicked Black Ink.

I cleaned my tray off and inked with the ColorBox Blends: Ebony, Wildberry, Melon, Leaf, Uniform, Bay, Beach and Coconut and painted the camera image. Once dry I fussy cut the camera out.

I adhered the Tiny Dot card base slightly off center of the patterned piece of cardstock.

I cut a 1″x7″ piece of yellow cardstock (I forgot to photograph this step 😟) and glued it near the edge of the Tiny Dot card base. I stamped the “enjoy the candid moments” sentiment with Archival Dye Wicked Black Ink and edged with ColorBox Cat’s Eye Ice Jade Ink before adding to the layout. I pulled these adorable images from my phone of my grand daughter. I printed these four photos out using my Selphy printer and I adhered the three of the smaller photos to the yellow strip.

The larger photo I adhered to the opposite side of the three other photos, added the camera image and five glossy rainbow dots next to the sentiment. I finished off the layout with some pom pom trim and Ric Rac.

Now for the fun stuff!!!There are prizes available for this hop! Pink and Main will be giving a $25 gift code to their website, and Clear Snap will be giving away a prize pack valued at $25.

Eileen Hull: Hello Tag

Hi everyone! I know I have been “missing in action” for a lot of April and the first part of May. April I had a nasty virus that just would not go away and on top of that allergies. The first part of May I went on a beach vacation which was much needed to say the least. I have been working on projects but haven’t been able to share those at this moment but they are coming…I promise. 😊 

This month on Eileen Hull’s blog it is ALL about flowers! I created this tag using up leftover ink from one of my previous projects. I started with a blank white 6.25″x3.125″ tag which I laid in the following watered down inks: Eileen Hull’s ColorBox Blends Tutu, WildberryMelon and ColorBox Coral Premium Dye Ink. I moved the tag around in the mix of colors to cover the tag completely. I let it air dry but you can use an heat embossing tool to speed up the process. Once dry I embossed the tag with the Daisy Wreath Embossing Folder.

I cut from two different cardstocks the Embroidery Hoop Diecut and using one part of the diecut from each of the different cardstocks I adhered to the front of the tag. I wrapped the excess around the tag. I adhered a patterned cardstock to cover the back of the tag.

I stamped the Welcomegirl rubber stamp image onto a piece of watercolor paper and inked out onto my glass tray the following colors of ink: Golden, Stop, Uniform, Hydrangea, Melon and Nutmeg. I watered down each ink and then watercolored girl image. Once dry I fussy cut her out and adhered to the card.

I cut an assortment of flowers with white cardstock from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and once I cleaned off my glass tray I spritzed the following Tattered Angel Simply Sheer Mists: Soft Peach and Peony and added just a little water to mute colors some. I laid the flower diecuts into each color doing both sides before removing to dry. I also cut one set of leaves from the Flower and Leaf Stitchlits. Once the flowers were dry I shaped with a stylus and adhered together.

I added an assortment of sequins and Dew Drops and Rainbow Glossy Dots to the center of the flowers and adhered to the tag along with bits of cheesecloth.

I stamped a Hello sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and added a few sequins randomly placed to the tag. I finished off with three strands of trim and a button to the top of the tag.

Be sure to hop on over to Eileen’s blog to see what the rest of the Inspiration Team has created! You can find past posts HERE. As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Also I would like to submit this tag for the following challenge:
