Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Here’s a simple but elegant card I made using the negative piece left over after I cut out the word “Christmas” with a retired thin cut die from CTMH.  I was cutting a bunch of these out and looking at the pieces.  Just by adding some glitter paper under the negative image, it makes the word pop.

I stamped “Very Merry” above “Christmas”.  Emboss the base of the card with a snowflake embossing folder (or any one of your choice).  When putting the layers together, use 3D Foam Tape to up up the negative cut for dimensions.

This is a great way to use your scraps and create a fast, elegant card for Christmas.

December things to keep in mind:

  • Free Card Kit when you purchase the December SOM for $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase – Check it out.
  • Through The Year Calendar Kit.  Purchase yours with stamp set and get a free layout (If you got the SOM in November you will not need the stamp set and got this layout last month).  With the purchase of either kit, you’ll get the Studio Sus guides for her amazing workshop that creates 24 pages and 12 month title toppers!  Check it out.

  • Happy Mail Club: With online orders over $25.00 of product, you will receive workshop guides (see the FB Group for the album) and more.  Check it out.

Thanks for stopping by to checkout my creative world.  I hope Christmas card inspires you to use your negative cutout images more!  Be creative!

I Love you no Coffee

I Love You, no Coffee

It’s that time again for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop!  Here’s my first card for the blog hop.  All the stamps/products are Close To My Heart, except the stamp “Coffee” which is from Sugar Pea Design’s Caffeine Addict.and the Liquid Pearl that is in the center of the sequins.  You can join us in the bloghop as it goes from June 23 – June 30.  Lots of time to have a cup of java and do some creating! You have a chance to win many different items by participating.  It’s great fun to receive Happy Mail.  There are some amazing artists in this hop so take some time to check out the artwork.

I used the following sketch from Mojo Monday.  It is, in fact, their last sketch. =(  So sad for this to be their farewell.

Prickly Pear Workshop Your Way  has all the components used along with the sequins which are great fun.  Jack Cardmaking Stamp set has this cute little bear and the coffee cup, both of which have thin cut dies to match! Sweetness!

I crossed out “you” on the sentiment with a red Shin Touche Marker and took “Coffee” and stamped it above it.  I used 3D foam tape to lift the sentiment and bear up.

My finishing touches were to use a Shin Han Touch marker to color the liquid in the cup brown to look like coffee.  Liquid Glass is used to create the shiny on the coffee, eyes, and nose.   Liquid Pearl was added to the center of the sequins to pull more of the coffee color in.

Happy Father’s Days

 Happy Father’s Day

Here is a wonderful Father’s Day card using the Jack papers and the Jack Cardmaking stamp set and it’s blessed set of thin cut dies! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate not having to fussy cut and thin cuts are wonderful when you are making a card (I prefer the Cricut for mass production).

My card design and inspiration comes from the final Mojo Monday sketch, 500.  It’s so sad to see Mojo Monday end.  However, it’s another season for Julee.  We can say a fond farewell to her, be grateful for all the inspiration she’s provided us over the past years and wish her the best for her new chapter of life!

 

This bear is so stinking cute!  I love the little arms and different things you can put it in there.

Use a brown, or in this case, kraft paper, and you don’t have to color.  Sometimes, time is of the essence and solid cardstock or kraft paper rocks to make less work but still keep the completed card looking awesome.  Did I mention that you can get all cardstock AND kraft paper 25% off until June 30?

Several patterns from the Jack paper pack were used to create the different layers along with the burlap ribbon.

Colors used for stamping match the paper pack: Archival Black, Ruby, and Juniper.  Color in the coffee cup with a watercolor brush and the Chocolate Ink Pad.

Use the Black and White Dots and Liquid Glass to create shine on the coffee in the coffee cup as well as the eyes and nose of the bear.  Such a happy bear.  Love him.

Retirement with No Worries

Retirement with No Worries

It’s been a long time coming to have fun retirement set and it works so well with the No Worries paper.  This is the No Worries Cardmaking Stamp Set that you’ll need to create the three cards that are shown in the CTMH Workshop Your Way guide.  I love any stamp set that comes with dies!

You an see how they match up to the stamp images making stamping and cutting out super easy.   See how the glass and starfish are cut out with the stamping done.   Have very clean cuts looks great.

Use the zip strip and the burlap ribbon to add layers to your card.  Add the awesome sequins that have the wood pattern on them.  Use 3D foam tape under the images to pop them up and to add more dimension.  Anyone retiring would love this card!  You’ll want to stock up with this ribbon and sequins because they will work beyond the No Worries collection and soon (August 31) they go into retirement.  =(

There’s no such thing as Blue Unicorns, right?

There’s no such thing as Blue Unicorns, right?

We needed a boy birthday card.  SG  loves the unicorn.  “Make a blue unicorn for a boy”, she says.  Using scraps, it’s not girly..right?  Maybe that top stripe with the purple or the bright pink a little girlish but all and all, it looks pretty “boyish”.

I do really like that I can use the thin cuts where I can stamp, then cut out the image.  Makes life so much easier than fussy cutting.  Love that CTMH packages the thin cuts in a storage envelope, has them cut out for you already (not hooked together so you have to cut them apart), AND they include the magnetic sheet.  The price point for the stamps and matching dies is amazing compare to others and you don’t always get a great storage envelope or magnetic sheet!  Great deal for YOU!  With this stamp set, you can cut out as many unicorns as your heart desires and stamp them in whatever color scheme you want.  Here are some of the die and stamp sets so you can check out what a great deal you get:

I laid out the stripes of paper in a diagonal pattern across the base white paper, 4″x 5.25″.  After getting one done, I decided to mat it on a piece of black cardstock, an 1/8th of a inch larger.  It make the top panel stand out.  3D foam tape the unicorn and banner.  Distress banner in matching Sapphire ink.

Happy Birthday Little Dreamer

Happy Birthday Little Dreamer

I’m working on using my scraps up and you know, I’m always have those sheets of cards left in the paper pack if I’m not doing pocket scrapbooking.  I used two of them to make this card and a card design I got from Unity Stamps.  The gold glitter paper and transparency are from my shaker card party.  =)

  • You will need to cut your card base from a larger piece of cardstock because the score/fold is on the 4.25″ side at the 5.5″.
  • Trim down one of the 4″x6″ cards to 4″x5.25″ and put the front of the card.
  • Then cut 1 1/2″ from the bottom of the card, set aside to use later, and leave 1 1/2″ from the top of the card.

 

  • Glue the transparency – cut to 4.25″ x 5.5″and glue under the top part of the card.
  • Glue the bottom 1 1/2″ piece that you saved and glue on the bottom of the transparency.
  • Take the striped card that’s 3″x4″ and put in the center of the card, over the transparency and overlapping the top and bottom of the card.   You’ll be able to see the transparency on the sides of the card.

  • Use two strips of gold glitter paper.
  • Stamp and cut out both the Unicorn and the banner.
  • Distress the banner with Thistle Ink.
  • Add googly eyes.

  • Stamp a unicorn on the inside of the card, underneath the panel so it does not show (unless you want it to).
  • Stamp a sentiment on the inside.
  • Add googly eye.
  • Use the Gold and Clear Shimmer Brushes on the unicorns (I did gold on the body and clear on the mane, tail, horn, and nose).

The Little Dream Paper is a great deal of fun.  The colors are lively and so wonderful to play with after this dreary, crazy spring we’ve been having. The Little Dreamer Cardmaking unicorn stamp set has these dies to match so no fussy cutting = LOVE!!  Same for the Little Dream Scrapbooking rainbow set.  These makes your life easier.
