Thinking of You


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a elegant card to share with you using dies from Frantic Stamper!!


It's been awhile since I created a White on White card!!  

I unfortunately need some Sympathy cards recently.  They are by far my least favorite to create, so I usually don't have any on hand.  

The recent die release from Frantic Stamper had some awesome new dies that made creating this Sympathy card easy and fun:
I started off by using the awesome previously released Elementals #16  - Stitched Rectangle Frames (10091) die set! I adhered the outside frame to my cardbase.  The center portion I ran through my Big Shot with an embossing folder!!  I love the look it gives!!

I then die cut the beautiful new Floral Oval Medallion (10402) and adhered it to a regular die cut oval!
For my sentiment, I used the Your Next Stamp sentiment 'Thinking of You' from the Bunches of Happiness stamp set!  Which was stamped in VersaMark Ink and embossed with white embossing powder on a die cut banner from the Stitched Double Fishtail Labels (09735) die set!

After adding the sentiment banner, I used the Garden Blossoms #3 (10405) and Spring Foliage (10402) to add the die cut flower and leaves!!

Although I don't like creating Sympathy cards, I do really like how they usually turn out!  So beautiful and elegant!!

Have a lovely day!

Hello in Dinosaur


Hello Stamping Friends!

Today I have a card I created using FUN stamps from the Crafty Doodle Chick shop!!


As many of you may have learned I absolutely LOVE the Rawr stamp set from Lawn Fawn!!  As well as the coordinating Rawr die cut!!

Sad Valentine's Day is past, but still think this super cute set can be used in so many different ways!

I paired it up with the fun Monster Squad stamp set from Jane's Doodles!!

I started by creating my card base, then cut another piece of white cardstock slightly smaller.  I first stamped the 'hello' from the Monster Squad stamp set!  Then added the 'Rawr means' and 'in dinosuar' from the Rawr stamp set! 

I then stamped the fun arrows from the Monster Squad stamp set to point to the sentiment!!  I love the fun design!

The 'rawr' speech bubble was then stamped on my card layer.  I then stamped the dino and colored with my Copics.  After coloring I die cut the cutie out and added to my base layer using foam dots!

I used foam tape to pop up the layer from my card base.

I finished off the card by adding some enamel dots!!

So fun to create for a child!  Or even an adult!!

Have a lovely day!

Love You Always


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have an elegant card to share with you using dies from Frantic Stamper!!

Today is my husband and my 11th Anniversary!!  (And we've been together 17 years!!) Wow!!  We're celebrating with the kids this weekend at a waterpark!!

I created this card to give him:
I love how this card turned out!!

I started by using the lovely Spiral Rose Card Panel Die for my background!!  It is so beautiful and elegant!!  I then used the Stitched Notched Oval Frame die set to create my frames in the center of the background.  I used the middle sized frame and die cut it twice with two different colors of card stock.  The center piece a lighter pink so that I could stamp the Hearts all Over background stamp!!

I then die cut the adorable Loving Couple die from black cardstock!

I added a sentiment on a die cut label from the Stitched Fishtail Labels die set!

Such a beautiful card, in my opinion!!

Have a lovely day!

I am so excited about all the lovely new products from D2BA!

I decided to first work with the fun new Nesting Oval Scalloped Frame Dies!  As I always enjoy a fun new set of dies!  And this set is so pretty!!

I started die cutting the largest oval and the light bulb went off!  I love these moments!! 

I thought it would be super fun to use the die set to create a shaped card, as it's been awhile since I have!  And also make it a shaker card!!!

Here is my finished card:
 I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!!

I used 4 of the 5 dies in the Nesting Oval Scalloped Frame Dies set to create this card!

I also used a piece of pretty Bows N' Blooms paper for my pattern floral paper!

The flower is stamped from the Blossom stamp set and colored with Copics!

I used a banner die to die cut my banner from a piece of English Garden pattern paper, using the back side!   I really like the light grey floral pattern paper!  Adds some interest, yet I was able to stamp the 'Happy Mother's Day' sentiment from the new Bouquet 4 You stamp set without the sentiment getting lost!

Shake! Shake!! Shake!!!
Shaker cards are just way to much fun to create!!

Loving these new products so much!!

YNS: Layer It Up

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's DT Dare day at Your Next Stamp!!

DT Dare is....
Layer It Up

I absolutely love the new Spring Treats stamp set and decided it would be fun to use it for today's DT Dare!!  I also used the coordinating Spring Treats Die Set!  And being that the name of the set is 'Spring Treats' I decided to create this fun layered Pillow Box treat package:
I used the fun Pillow Box Die set!  And being that the dare theme is 'Layer it Up' I used most of the layers in the die set!!  I also added a banner in which I then masked and only stamped the 'Easter Treats' portion of the sentiment from the Spring Treats stamp set.

I stamped a few of the cute little peep like bunnies and colored them with my colored pencils! I then used the coordinating dies to die cut them out!  I thought they would look cute layers about the sentiment on the package!!

The fun paper I used is from the Happy Spring 6x6 Paper Pad!!


Be sure to check out the other DT projects on the YNS Blog and leave a comment for your chance at winning a stamp set of your choice!!

MCT Sneak Peek Day #1


Hello Sweet Stamping Friends!

Welcome to Day #1 of Sneak Peeks for the 76th New Release from My Creative Time!!

-----

Today we are showcasing the NEW 
Never Let You Go 
stamp and die set!!

Such a super sweet and cute set!!

I decided to use Kraft Paper for the most part!  As I tend to use a lot of white for my bases and forget about the Kraft paper!

I am so glad I did, as I absolutely love how this card turned out:
I used the Scalloped Stitched Square Dies set for all of my layers!!  (I love this die set!!)   I started by die cutting the largest scallop in the set from a blueish cardstock!  I then used the next die size to die cut my Kraft layer, that I then decided to stamp the bunnies hugging multiple times with a tan ink to create my own background!  I then layered a small vellum die cut layer over! 

I used the smallest scallop in the set to die cut a piece from the blue cardstock again and finished with the smallest stitched square from Kraft paper and stamped my sweet 'Sending BIG HUGS your way!' sentiment from the new Never Let Go stamp set!!

I can't wait to share the entire set with you Friday!!  It's so cute!!

Turtley Love You


Hello Stamping Friends!

Today I have a card I created using stamps from the Crafty Doodle Chick shop!!


After creating and sharing my fun Candy Kiss packages and creating some of my own papers for them, I was inspired to create a fun shaker card using some of the same stamps to create a fun heart filled background for my shaker!!
The large solid heart stamp and large outline heart stamp are from the How You Bean? Conversation Heart Add-On stamp set!  The tiny solid heart stamp, which I stamped with red ink, is from the Monster Squad stamp set!!

The adorable little turtle is from the fun Turtley Awesome stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps!!  (It's actually my daughter's stamp set that she got!  So I had to borrow it from her!! LOL!  She thought it was so COOL that I was borrowing something of hers!! Too cute!)
I used my colored pencils to color in the turtle!  I haven't colored with my colored pencils in a long time!  So it was pretty cool to get them out and color with them!!  I miss using them!!

After coloring the turtle, I used the coordinating Turtley Awesome Die set to die cut the turtle out!!

The adorable 'I turtley love you' sentiment was put together using the Turtley Awesome stamp set!

Super fun!!

Be sure to check out all the lovely products the Crafty Doodle Chick shop carries!!


Have a lovely day!
