Hi everyone! I’m back with a very quick inspirational tag I created!
I started by inking a glass tray with Jade Premium Ink, adding water and placing Tag in ink mixture. Once I had the desired effect I wanted I removed and let dry. I placed the Printer’s Ornament Embossing Folder on both ends of the tag and run through the diecut machine. I inked the Be Fearless Rubber Stamp with Atmosphere Premium Ink and stamped the center of the tag.
This card I started with a 5 1/2″x5 1/2″ folded cardbase which I cut a 5″x5″ piece of patterned cardstock, inked the edges and adhered to the cardbase.
Even though the card looks hard to put together it really isn’t. I cut the following pieces of patterned cardstocks 3 1/4″x5″, 2 3/4″x5″ and 2 1/4″x5″ and used a decorative punch (5” side) on each piece and then measured 2 1/2″ of the punched edge (the center) and cut with in a 1/2″ of each piece of cardstock. I then “curled” the cut edges around a pencil and then adhered each piece on top of each other to create a pocket.
I used the Doily diecut to cut a doily from off white piece of cardstock, ink edges and then glued to cardbase and inside the “pocket”.
I cut the big leaves from the Holiday Greenery diecut on off white cardstock. I then inked with a variety of peach, tan, brown, yellow and green chalk ink. I blended the colors together and then wadded and crinkled the leaves up and then shaped the ends with my stylus. I folded down the middle and inked the center with brown ink.
If you have any questions about this card please let me know.
Hi everyone! I am here to share a very quick post about a card I submitted to Scrapbook Generation’s Create magazine that was published! EEK!!! It has a lot of great scrapbook pages, cards and tag inspiration and the best part it is fun! 🙂
Below is the link to the online magazine. Also it is almost on the very last page.
I used a variety of Canvas Corp, Robin’s Nest and other supplies to create this card. If you have any questions please let me know.
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.
Hi there! I know it has been awhile since my last post but me and my hubby are now first time grandparents…we are very happy, my son moved but stayed in state…insert a crying face even if we are two hours away and I have FINALLY started my long awaited craft room which we are still in the middle of doing. My parents came over to help and I am so thankful for them because I would have pulled out my hair with some of the crazy things that happened with the ceiling. After scraping the popcorn off the ceiling the paint crackled and flaked not once but three times which wasn’t fun let me tell you. That meant scraping three different times and dealing with dust but now it looks great along with the new paint color that is on the walls. Hopefully next week my parents will be back to install the new floors. 🙂
Well, I would like to share a card I created for Crafty Card Gallery and this month’s theme is flowers. What I created isn’t a card but a little gift bag which you can put a card inside, gift card or something fun.
I started out with a 5″x7 1/2″ Large Paper Bag which I cut the “flap” off and punched the top of the bag with a decorative punch. Cut and adhered a 5″x5″ piece from the Take Our Breath Away Gypsy Moments Cardstock and ink the edges with green chalk ink. Then I adhered a Black Bookmark off center of the bag.
I cut the Best Wishes image from the Seed Packets on Ivory Cardstock. I love this collection. You can leave it as is or add paint/color the image.
I used pop dots to raise the image off of the bag. I also used thread, tulle, lace, pearl sprays, paper flowers and buttons to finish off the bag. I hope you like what I created and if you have any questions please let me know.
Hi everyone! I found these scalloped cards I cut out from the Sizzix Scallop Card diecut several years ago along with a 4 1/2″x6 1/2″ pad of The Great Circus Company from Paper Studio. The set of Graphic 45 Cling Le Cirque 3 rubber stamps I had purchased at a great price at Tuesday Morning (2.99). Which of course I couldn’t pass up. 😉 I couldn’t decide on if I wanted to do Valentine’s Day theme cards or just wanted to keep them generic and finally wound up doing generic theme. So far this is what I came up with…I have a couple of more to do. 🙂
I stamped and used pastel chalks to color the images and then set the chalk with hairspray. Also I printed the sentiments from the computer and I inked all the edges with brown chalk ink.
I added sequins for a little bit of fun bling to the cards. Plus it is flat and should mail easily.
If you have any questions about these cards please let me know.
Hi everyone! I want to share a Valentine’s Day card I created for a challenge over at Canvas Corps blog. I started with a 5×7 folded kraft card as my base. I used a scrap of Black and Ivory Toile cardstock, inked the edges with chalk ink and then centered and adhered on the base. Next I added a black doily, strip of Red and Ivory Ribbon Stripe Cardstock and a small strip of the hearts from the Sending Love Words on Ivory Cardstock to the card front. In the bottom corner I adhered the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment from the same sheet of Sending Love Words on Ivory Cardstock.
I cut down a Kraft Coin Envelope (4 3 1/8×5 1/2) and punched a heart from the Red and White Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock which I adhered to the envelope along with a sequins and a dew drop. Next I splattered a Canvas Artist Trading Card with Cross My Heart Glimmer Mist and Bronze Glimmer Mist. Once the ATC dried I adhered it inside the envelope and added thread, dew drops and a sentiment from the Sending Love Words on Ivory Cardstock. There you have it a very simple card. I plan on giving this to my parents as part of their Valentine’s Day present. If you have any questions please let me know.
