Birthday Flower


Hi there and thanks for stopping by!

I am hopping on real quick to share this card for the CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers.The challenge is to make a card using the flower of your birth month, well my birthday is this month and the flower is a daffodil which happens to also be one of my favorite spring flowers.

To create this card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel cut down a quarter of an inch smaller. I  stamped the daffodil from the Spring Blossoms set, colored it using Copic markers and then masked it off so I could create the background. 
To create the background, I used the Mid Century Carnival stencil by A Colorful Life, the Life Changing Blending Brushes by Picket Fence Studios and Blue Raspberry ink by Gina K. I also blended ink on the card base itself around the outer edges. 
To finish the card I stamped the greeting from the Scripty Thoughts set with Versamark ink on a black strip of card stock and then embossed in white and added it to the card front.

Spring is Here




Spring is finally here! Well the official day is anyway, the weather isn't cooperating yet it was 25 degrees last night ...burr
I am up on the Joy Clair blog today sharing these two cards. 

The first card uses the Easter Greetings set. To create this card I started with a white top folding card base and a Sweet Corn panel cut down a quarter of an inch smaller. For the background I randomly stamped the image of the lily bouquet to cover the entire panel using Wild Dandelion ink so it would show better. I used the oval single stitched die to cut a white piece of yardstick to use as my focal point. I used the single power image to stamp around the border of the focal piece and then added the greeting from the Spring Stroll set in the center. To finish the card I colored the flowers using Copic Markers.




To create the second card I started with a white top folding card base and a white piece of card stock. Again using the Oval single stitch die I cut out the focal panel.  I used the same Easter Greetings Set and created the background in the same way with Innocent Pink ink. For the focal panel this time I stamped the lily bouquet image also in Innocent Pink and then stamped the Happy Easter over it.

Cat to be Kitten



Hello and thanks for stopping by! 
My card share today features one of the Picket Fence Studios kitties, Olivia Kitten. 

To create this card I started with a white top folding card base, a black panel and a white panel cut down a half an inch smaller than the base.
I stamped Olivia Kitten in our black Hybrid ink and the using the 2 1/2 inch blending stencil and the Life Changing blending brushes I made her a head.  
Next I used the Random Dots stencil with the Blending Brushes to give her some dimension. To add a subtle pink to her ears I used one of the smallest LC Blending Brushes and Baby Pink ink by Altenew.
To finish the card I added the sentiment at the bottom. This one is going to a friend that I missed sending her a birthday card.

To create my my card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel. I used the Dotted Fill-In stamp set and the Birdie Talk dies, both by Concord & 9th.  To create the background, I inked up the polka dot background in Sweet Corn ink by Gina K Designs and then also added the dots along the edge using the same set. I used the Gina K Designs Stitched ovals as the focal panel for the birdie. I used the MISTI to stamp the greeting which is from the Feathered stamp set also by Concord & 9th

Cut Out For Greatness



Hello sweet friends! 
Thanks for stopping by, I am still having fun guesting for Gina K Designs. 
My card today uses the Crafty Notes set but in a different way. Graduation is just around the corner if you have a May graduate and this sentiment makes a perfect graduation card, even better if they are graduating from cosmotology school, right?

I am entering this one in the challenge at CAS on Friday of Embossing.





To create this card I started with a white top folding card base and a panel of black layering card stock for the mat and then a white panel for the focal panel.
I randomly stamped the scissors all over the panel, colored them with Copic markers and then used the Crystalline drops to make them shiny.
For the greeting I used a black piece of card stock cut to 2" square and embossed the greeting in silver. I created a tassel and attached it to the center

Scripture Crosses


I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today with these two cards featuring one of our new releases, Scripture Crosses

For my first sample (above) I started with a white top folding card base and another panel of white card stock.  I created the rainbow background by blending pink, blue, and yellow with a Life Changing Blending brush.  After I covered the piece of card stock, I stamped the Scripture cross using Versafine Clair ink.



For my second sample (below) I also started with a white top folding card base and a white panel of card stock and a panel of faux wood patterned paper.
I stamped the scripture cross using Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. Next I used the Life Changing Blending Brushes to add the brown and the popped it on a piece of faux wood patterned paper.
