Disney Magic

Hi there and thanks for stopping by!
I totally CASEd this one from a fellow demonstrator Michelle Suit the queen of punch art.  When I saw her card I knew I had to recreate it because I love Disney.  It was really Simple I used a couple punches,  the Star Stencil and a couple sets; Kinda Eclectic (one of my new favs) and the sentiment is from Hip Notes. 

Made this for CASology's challenge

Sweet 'n Sassy Summer Die Release

Hello, Sweet 'n Sassy  friends!  
Welcome to the August 2014 Release!  Dies seem to be the trend in card making right now and Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has some fabulous new dies to release this month that coordinate with several of our summer stamp sets already available in the store!  The bonus is that even though these stamps and dies were designed to be summer sets, they can be used all year long for the beach lover, as you can see from my samples. They can be fun or elegant it's all in how you use them! 

My first sample is using them for a fun card 

I made the background using a stencil and sponging with Lost Lagoon SU ink, next I sprayed it with some Heidi Swap color shine to give it contrast and shimmer.  I colored my  Happy Ocean Friends with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I added some Tall Grass for the little fishy to swim through and to finish it I added some bubbles using crystal accents.

  • Die set includes 7 dies
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Die set price is $16.75

Next up is my sample using them for an elegant card

This one I colored The Flourish Seashells with m Copic markers a light pinkish white, cut them out using the coordinating dies , then added a little shimmer to the edges with a Wink of Stella.

  • Die set includes 5 dies
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Die set price is $11.75

And last I used them for an everyday card could be for a birthday, retirement, or moving

This one was super quick and easy having the dies to match the set. I colored my shells from Beauty By The Sea a pale pinkish white with my Copic markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I again added some shimmer with A Wink of Stella, then added some shimmery tine to finish it off.

  • Die set includes 6 dies
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Die set price is $15.25
