Bows

For years I have had trouble making bows on craft projects.  While I loved using ribbon, it was the bows that kept me away from using it.  Not any more.

Check out this awesome video that FSJ has put together on how to make a double bow.

I just put in a ribbon order and can’t wait for it to come in so I can start making bows.  I love working with our ribbon.

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Beautiful Day

I have said it before and I’ll say it again. This month’s Bloom Box is over the top.  This design was included in this month’s box and I loved it so much I had to recreate it.  Here is the alternative version I came up with.  I used the contents of the April 2018 Bloom Box and added a few other items.

Beautiful Day

In your Bloom Box the front panel is already die cut.  Since I used it I needed to create a new panel and I did this using Buttercream (CS-0006) cardstock,  Journey Rectangles Die (DI-0041) and the Fancy Label Die (DI-0035).  On this panel I stamped the floral image from the April 2018 Bloom Box – Love Life in Lemon Drop (IP-0043) and Citrus Cooler (IP-0048) ink.

Beautiful Day3

I stamped the butterfly from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) in Black Licorice Ink and cut it out using the coordinating die.  I colored in the butterfly using our Gold Silk (IP-0096) and a Blending Brush(TO-0097).

Beautiful Day2

I love how it turned out and think this color combination is very striking.

Beautiful Day4

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

I hope you have a beautiful day!!

Small Things | Thanks

I love Butterflies as much as I love Sunflowers.  The images in the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) are just gorgeous.  I love the different sizes and designs of the Butterfly images you can almost see them fluttering by.

Small Things Thanks

For this card I stamped a Whip Cream (CS-0040) panel with the images from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) in the following inks:  Cool Pool (IP-0074), Pretty Amethyst (IP-0018), and Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027).  On a scrap piece of Whip Cream card stock, I stamped one of the images in Black Licorice (IP-0041) and cut it out with the coordinating die.

Small Things Thanks4

Using the Journey Circles (DI-0039), I cut out a piece of Vellum (PP-0044) [we also have our Vellum Designer Prints (PP-0008)] and popped it up on the card front before popping up the Black Licorice Butterfly on top of that using Foam Squares (AD-0085).  Then adhered the Whip Cream panel to a piece of Sweet Berry (CS-0034) and then onto a Turbo Teal (CS-0127) card base.

Small Things Thanks2

Added some of the Classic Elegance Tape (AC-0291) and Sweet Romance (AC-0290) [Sweet Romance is a Bloom Benefit – you can get it for free with an order of $100 or more].  On another piece of Whip Cream, I stamped the Thanks from the Inside &  Out (SS-0576) stamp set and the cut it out using our Detail Shears (TO-0063) and popped it up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0084).

Small Things Thanks3

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inside & Out (SS-0576) stamp set in Black Licorice ink on a piece of Whip Cream card stock.

Small Things Thanks5

Follow Your Dreams | Happy Adventure| CTD#488

I participated in this week’s color throwdown challenge CTD#488.  I had a lot of fun creating.

The card front was made by using our Gel Press (JM-0107), Brayer (TO-0087) Cool Pool Splash (IP-0076), Shimmer Gold Splash(IP-0081)  and Whip Cream Acrylic Paint (JM-0106).   [I learned this technique on the Fun Stampers Journey – Try-day Friday post on Facebook].  After that dried I adhered it to a Pool Play (CS-0092) card base. The I added a strip of Kiwi Slice (CS-0016).

Follow Your Dreams Happy Adventure

The truck came from the Happy Adventure (SS-0565) stamp set [definitely on my top 10 list] and was stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a piece of Whip Cream cardstock.  I colored the truck in using Pineapple Smoothie Splash (IP-0080), Shimmer Silver Splash (IP-0082) and a Blending Brush (TO-0097) with water in the barrel.  The flowers in the truck were colored in with Just Write Gels (JD-0060).  I popped that up on the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085). 

Using Lemon Drop (CS-0018) cardstock and the Journey Circles (DI-0039) I cut out the sun and stamped the sentiment from the Blue Skies (SS-0574) stamp set in Black Licorice ink.  The clouds were cut out of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock using the Cloud Dreams (DI-0032) dies.  Those were popped up using Foam Squares.  I added a Whip Cream Thread (AC-0128) bow to the sun and the card was finished.

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Follow your dreams!

Scenic Route

I love taking the Scenic Route!!!  The Scenic Route ATS (AT-0283) is my favorite ATS from the Spring into Summer Trends Mini.  I love how the image looks –  portrays movement –  you can really see the ribbon from the flowers flowing in the gentle breeze.

Scenic Route

Using a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card front, I stamped the sentiment from the Scenic Route ATS (AT-0283) in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  Then I cut a piece from the Sunday Adventure Prints (PP-0053) and adhered it to a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) card stock and adhered it to the Whip Cream panel.  I added a piece of Watermelon Fusion Satin Ribbon (AC-0183) and some Licorice Twist Twine (AC-0267) before adhering it to the Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card base using Easy Glide (AD-0081).

Scenic Route 2

On a scrap piece of Whip Cream cardstock, I stamped the bike image from the Scenic Route ATS in Black Licorice ink.  Using our Detail Pro Shears (TO-0063) I cut it out and colored the flowers using Bubble Gum Silk (IP-0092), Citrus Cooler Silk (IP-0093) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097).  Popped it onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

Scenic Route 3

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Inside & Out (SS-0576) in Black Licorice ink onto a Whip Cream panel before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Scenic Route 4

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

And remember to always take the scenic route!
