Rainbow Love

Rainbow Love

This sunburst card was inspired by our sale “Create a Rainbow”.  Did you see the price of a pack of rainbow cardstock?  Anyway, I can never have enough paper (well, my darling husband would disagree with me) and picking up a couple of packs lets me create some beautiful projects!  Grab your own pack and create this card!

 

 

 

 

Cut the strips 1″ by 5″ and 1″ x 7″.   Then you’ll cut those diagonally so you have several triangles.  The base for the sunburst is 5″x 3 3/4″.  The black base is 5 1/4″ by 4″.  Lay out the rainbow and glue down.  Trim off the around the edges and mat on the black.

 

Stamp the girl from the June Stamp of the Month, A Bushel and A Peck S1806.   Color in with Shin Touch markers.

She’s darling.  While SG would never wear a dress, she reminds me of her with the crazy hair and sweet smile.  =)  After you color, fussy cut out leaving a 1/4″ border of white.  Mount on black and fussy cut out leaving black border.  Mount in the upper right corner of the card using 3D foam tape.

Stamp the sentiment “I love you a bushel and a peck” on white cardstock and mount on black.  Adhere to the card base.

Add embellishments as you see fit.  I found some red enamel hearts and left over Florence Sequins to use.   Love to see your rainbow cards!  To encourage rainbow projects, here’s a great workshop you can get free when you purchase $25.00 of product from my website:

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Enjoy a creative day!

 

 

 

 

I Love You A Bushel and A Peck

I Love You a Bushel and A Peck

I love you a bushel and a peck…and a hug around the neck.  SG and I say this to each other often.  The June Stamp of the Month S1806 A Bushel and A Peck is very sweet and all of the sentiments are wonderful.

You can use this stamp set in September for the apples and school starting.  The girl is sweet and can be colored any way possible.  As I look at it, the pie and leaves can go into November as well.  Nice to have a set that will be very usable year round.

 

Use the Shin Touch Alcohol Markers allow you to color, shading and highlighting as you desire.  Coloring this way allows you to add depth to your images.  I love the price point on the markers, making them an affordable option.   The marker collection is a wonderful way to get all of them.

Remember this wonderful saying because everyone you love in your life needs to know this.

Have a wonderful day and be sure to tell those you love, that you love them a bushel and a peck.

Classic Summer Bash

Classic Summer Bash

 

We had an amazing weekend and got a lot done around our house.  Flowers planted, outdoor furniture dug out and cleaned, and the patio swept and set up.  Look great and perfect for celebrating a weekend summer bash.  Are the tropical flowers beautiful?  I so miss being on Guam and all of the beautiful flowers you have there.

 

S1805 Classic Summer Bash is perfect for making the invites for a bash to welcome in the summer time.  =) Here is a great invitation to get the summer started.

It’s been a bit since we’ve had an invitation set and this is excellent.  You’ll be able to use this for anything you’ll need an invite all.

I love wood grain paper, don’t you?  Stamp the jar, then the ice cubes.  Stamp the cubes so they overlap the edge of the jar. Then fussy cut the jar out.  Stamp the lemons and cut out.  Put them on with one under the thin 3D foam tape.  A unique twist on this card is this:

The base is the wood grain with the invite.  The card part is the right side of the card where you can put a short note to each invitee.

The Free Stamp of the Month Kit when you buy the S1805 Classic Summer Bash Stamp of the Month for $5.00.

 

 

Enjoy this fun invite.  Get ready for a Class Summer Bash.    Have a wonderfully creative day!

 

 

Celebrate!

Celebrate!

While I’m up at the Memories Made Here crop, I’m sharing this cute Celebrate card made with Gimme Some Sugar and the April Stamp of the Month (SOM) S1804 Color Your Life.  My pictures are not the best here.  The Peacock Stitched Ribbon and Cork Shapes are so much fun to use.

Bashful Glitter Paper is used to add some bling.  I have used this paper more than I thought I would because it’s a pale pink and I’m not really a “pink girl”.  Prefer bolder, brighter colors to bring in happiness.  The softness of the Bashful color provides a very subtle, elegant look to cards and pages, which works well for babies, weddings, and more.

The sentiments in this stamp set are great.  Large enough to use for scrapbook yet usable as shown above for cards.  Some of the letters are designed to be colored, which is very popular right now.   You can see this in the free layout kit you’ll get when you purchase this stamp set for $5.00.

Did you know you can take the bottom border and use it to make baseball stitching?  One of the joys of acrylix stamps is they are flexible and you can create a curve in them when you place them on the block before you stamp.  I’m going to create a card showing this for Monday.  Using the same card design, you can change the look by changing the paper (part of the fun of two-sided background and texture papers)!

Be Kind

Be Kind

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:

March things to keep in mind:

  • Free Card Kit when you purchase the March  SOM S1803 Birthday Time for $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase.  I have an album of art up in the FB group. – Check it out

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:
