AAA- Along the Edge



Happy Sunday!
It's time for a new challenge at AAA Cards. We are playing Along the Edge and the twist is inspired by a song. Well I am sure there is a song out there that fits my card, but I didn't have the twist in mind when I made this card. I had just gotten it in the mail from Ink Blot Shop and was excited to use and it fit the challenge. The set is called Botanical Borders 2
I colored it using Copic markers and added a little strip of glitter washi to depict the ground.

One Layer



Happy Saturday!
It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. Our hostess is Barb and she has chosen our code word 


To create my card I used this gorgeous Desert Landscape Border from Technique Junkies Stamps. For the background I masked off the space and then used Life changing Blender Brushes by Picket Fence Studios to create the desert sky. I added the Happy Birthday greeting to finish this masculine birthday card.

Good Friends


Hi there!
Thanks for stopping by. I am still working on the Dare to Get Dirty challenges at Splitcoaststampers, I have until tomorrow so no problem right? 
This card uses some of the August releases along with older products. This card is for Dina challenge and it is a fun one!

The supplies I used on my card are a white side folding card base, the Layers of Clouds stencil, the Woodsy Forest die, the Layers of Grass Stencil, Fran Girl, Fran Girl die and the Life Changing Blender Brushes.

I opened the card base and used the Layers of Clouds stencil, the Life Changing Blender Brushes and Blue Raspberry ink by Gina K to create the sky. For the Grass I used the Layers of Grass Stencil and Lucky Clover ink by Gina K. For the tree I used the Woodsy Forest die and cut it in half and glued one half to each side of the card and the used the Negative Leaves die for the leaves. Next I Stamped Fran Girl on a separate piece of paper, colored her using Copic markers and then cut her out with the Fran Girl die and placed her underneath the tree to read.
The greeting I used is from the Levels of Friendship set and it speaks the truth!

Release Day at Picket Fence Studios


It's Release day at Picket Fence Studios and once again, yup you guessed it, it's a Fabulous or should I say Fa "Boo" lous release. 
This release is has lots of fun stamps for Halloween, Fall, foiling dies, and there are more amazing stencils. 
I used to love decorating the house for halloween and seeing the kids all dressed up in their costumes I would even dress our dog up and walk around the neighborhood, but where we live now there are no neighbors, so no kids and no decorations. 
 I do love making halloween cards even though I really don't send them out they are fun to make. So I have three for you today. 

The first card uses the If You Got It, Haunt It and it's my favorite! I love the style of this stamp, It can be used with so many other stamps or alone with a stencil. I paired it up with the Autumn Countyside and then added in some bats from an older set Wicked Together. The background was created using the new Electrio Pop inks by Gina K, yall these inks are so intense! I used Potent Purple, Orange glow and Loud Lime. 


The second card uses the Witch,Please set How cute is that witch!? This set also has some fairy frogs in it too, a must have. 
I used one of our new stencils which I sneak peeked last week on my blog post, it's called Layers of Clouds and it's amazing, one of my favorites because you also get the negative clouds with it. On this card I used the negative stencil and some soft stone ink with the Life Changing Blending Brushes



The last card uses a super adorable set, Trick or Treaters. I paired this one up with the Window Sunshine Stencil, and used the Poppin Pink Electrio Pop ink by Gina K Designs and the Life Changing Blending Brushes. I stamped the little trick or treaters using our Black Hybrid ink and colored them using Copic markers and cut them out with the Trick or Treaters die and popped them up using foam tape. The greeting is from the Wicked Together set.



I will have more from this release over the course of this week so be sure to check back.

Sweet 'n Sassy August Release Bloghop






Hello and welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy August release hop! 
Today I am using the Back to School set for my samples. 
To create the first card I started with a top folding white card base, a yellow panel for a mat and a white panel for the images. I stamped the stars and colored them using a Copic marker and I also used a blue Copic marker over the entire panel. After I got it covered I used a piece of a terry cloth and some Copic blending solution, I simply put some blending solution on the cloth and dabbed it over the panel that I had colored blue, this gave me the texture you see. Next I stamped the bus on a seperate piece of paper and colored it also using Copic markers then fussy cut it out and popped it up on the front. the sentiment is embossed in white on a strip of Black Onyx cut down with the Cut-Align.



The second card also uses the Back to School set. This time I used a gray top folding card base, a red panel for a mat and a white panel for the images. I randomly stamped the bell over the panel and then stamped the schoolhouse from the set on a seperate piece of paper and colored it using Copic markers and fussy cut it out and popped it up in the center of the panel I couldn't decide on a greeting but I may add one late when I send out the card. 


To celebrate school starting back we are having a sale on all out Alpha stamps starting now through Monday the 19th. Simply add three Alphabet sets to your cart and when you check out one of them will be free no code needed!

Ocean Minded


Today I am hosting a challenge over on Splitcoaststampers for the Dare to Get Dirty challenges. What are the Dare to Get Dirty challenges? It's our way of saying thank you to our fan club members. If you are not a fan club member you should totally join for all the bennies.

To create this card I used the Ocean Minded set by Gina K Designs. I have had this set since it was offered in a kit and just got a chance to ink it up. I love the way the this stamp when heat embossed looks so much like the waves when they come a shore.
