Be Kind

Be Kind

The Stamp of the Month, S1804 Color Your Life, has some wonderful sentiments in it.  Ones we can definitely use in our lives as encouragement.  I always send SG out the door with  “Remember to be kind” when she’s off to conquer the day.

Using this Gimme Some Sugar paper pack and the SOM, you can create this fun card.   Other elements of the card comes from few other elements in the Gimme Some Sugar Collection and Bashful Glitter Paper.

Don’t forget, when you purchase the SOM for $5.00, you’ll get this great kit of the month free (you’ll receive one of these two layouts):

Celebrate

Celebrate

This is Celebrate card from the free Stamp of the Month (SOM) that you can receive free when you purchase the stamp set for $5.00.  I think this stamp is my favorite “celebrate” because of the shadowing.  It gives the saying some wow without a lot of work.  The term “celebrate” can cover many different events making it very universal.

Use the Memento Black to stamp the image (so you don’t get the bleed if you are using alcohol markers), color in with Shin Han Touch Carmine, and go over the top with Gold Shimmer to add bling.  The journal pen was used to create the doodling.  Nice thing about doodling is you can create your own pattern.

 

The pennants are created by dovetailing the stripes of paper.  Cut in the center of the piece of paper about a half of an inch.  Then cut from each corner in an angle to to the top of the center cut and you’ve got a cute banner.  Use the alpha dry embossing folder (or whatever one you want) to create some different textures in the banners.  Layer the banners so they cross over each other.  Use 3D foam tape to pop up the sentiment banner.  The Stargazer embellishments are great primary colored dots (stock up in these because they are generic enough to use in lots of different projects).

 

Here’s the complete SOM Kit:

Sunshine Thank You

Sunshine Thank You

Wow, what a crazy flash sale and I’m so glad to see so many take advantage of a great sale.  Creating this Sunshine Thank You was so much fun and easy too.  Using Design Space and an overlay from ArtBooking and the February SOM Sunshine Thoughts, you are ready to go.

The overlay actually has a sun on it.  Do have the stamp pop out, it’s covered up.  Using Black on this layout, the bright Tangerine and Lemon cardstock really stands out.

Use 3D Foam tap to give dimension to the card and have the sentiment pop up.

Use a variety of sequins to add a little bling to the card.  They are CTMH’s Gold Sequins and Queen and Comp’s yellow sequins from her topper collections.  The February SOM S1802 Sunny Thoughts has great sentiments for both scrapbooking and cardmaking:

Sunny Day

Sunny Day

Check out this simple card using Chelsea Gardens Paper and the February SOM – Sunny Thoughts S1802. Use your Cricut to cut out the scalloped circle and the circle stamping.  Juniper is the ink color for stamping the sentiment.

The card design is simple.  Cut a panel base of 4″ x 5.25″ of Juniper cardstock.  Choose your favorite background and texture patterns from the paper packet.  Even though these colors in Chelsea Gardens are “cool” colors, they speak of Spring and sunny days to me.  I am so ready for Spring right now.

Finish off the card with the Light Gray Ribbon and some embellishments.  Take a look at the embellishments.  They are the Chelsea Garden Dots and Gems.  Look at how they are marbled!  This is the first time we’ve had gems like this and I hope to see more in the future.

Best Deal:

Purchase the February SOM Sunny Thoughts  for $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase and get this card kit free.  It’s cut and ready for stamping.  There are 5 cards in each kit.

I did my cards a little differently for fun and this will be the kit contents.  Making Waves Shimmer Trim instead of Silver.

You Are the Sunshine Shakers

You Are The Sunshine Shakers

The February Stamp of the Month (SOM) S1802 Sunny Thoughts is a wonderful stamp set.  I had this vision of creating a shaker card with the sentiment “You are the Sunshine in My Pocket” with a sunshine shaker.   You can see why from the sentiments in this set:

I ended up creating a 2 cards for this, using two different options.   The first one was creating using the Design Space and the sunshine overlay from Artbooking.    Cut out the overlay at least 14-15 times to create the shaker.    The idea comes  from Jennifer Mcquire and some shaker ornaments she made.  She did hers with a die.  For mass production, I prefer using Design Space!

It’s a little tedious to glue all the layers together.  The look you get is well worth it.  You can make any image you want to cut out multiple times and make a great shaker from it.  Get the acetate from Staples in a box of transparencies.    They work great and are inexpensive. Cardstock is Black, Lemon, and Tangerine, all CTMH.  Fill with Queen and Company toppers.   Use a sponge dauber to swirl around Lemon ink on the sentiment to give it some depth and color.

The second shaker is made using Queen and Company’s sunburst foam card front and die:

The Making Waves  purple paper went on top with Lemon cardstock as the base.  The Lemon cardstock shows through like rays of sunshine and the yellow toppings added some bling and shake to it all.   The purple/white dots background and texture paper really makes the Lemon pop.  The large circle die from CTMH cuts the circle for the sentiment but you can use the circle from Art Philosophy (if you have it) or Access, and cut at 2.5″.  Distress the circle with Lemon ink and a sponge dauber.

Let Love Grow

Let Love Grow

This card can be used to celebrate anywhere that you see love growing.  Using the Whimsy Fundamental Paper Pack(retired), White Shimmer Paper, Memento Black Ink and a Shin Touch Marker Sap Green, you can create this card.  The Whimsy Paper Pack will make it easy to to switch color combinations around to match weddings, baby showers, engagements, any event where love is growing.

 

 

To make this card:

  • Cut 1″ off the front right side of the card.  Place your striped paper (5.5″ x 2″) on the left side of the card with a 5.5″ x 1/2″ strip of the white glitter paper.  There should be a white edge of the card about .75″ to the cut part.
  • On the inside of the card, mount the polka dot paper (5.5″ x 1.5″) on the right side.  This shows through because you’ve trimmed off the 1″ from the top of the card.
  • Stamp the “Good Seed Co” on a one of the watercolor background papers.  Stamp “Let Love Grow” in the center.   Color in the leaves with the Sap Green marker and mount on the Sweet Leaf card stock.
  • Mount this so that it’s over hangs the cut off part of the card.  It’s centered.

 

Add a few bitty sparkles through out the sentiment piece to add a little bling.  Simple and fun.  The January Stamp of the Month S1801 Bloom and Grown is awesome!!
