Uplift Die Set | Make A Wish

I love the Make A Wish Bundle (BD-0270) and the Gift Slider Die Set (DI-0384)!!!

Uplift Birthday

I cut a piece from the Birthday Pop Prints (PP-0052) and adhered it to a Black Licorice (CS-0003) card panel onto a Huckleberry Fusion (CS-0015) card base.  Using the Uplift Die Set (DI-0384), I die cut some pieces from Limeade Splash (CS-0020) and the Birthday Pop Prints (PP-0052).  I added some Black Licorice Twine (AC-0004) to the ends of the balloons before popping them up on the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

The Make A Wish was stamped in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) onto a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock and cut out using the coordinating die.  I added some Turbo Teal (IP-0119) Silk to this piece before popping it up on the card with Foam Squares.

I needed to make this card into a gift card holder so I pulled out the Gift Slider Die Set.  However, I didn’t think the bow went with the balloon theme so I had to improvise.  [Have you ever had to do improvise on a card?  Drop me a comment and let me know.]

Uplift Birthday2

I decided to use the same paper and the Uplift Die set to cut out a balloon that would be big enough to cover the bow.  Added some Black Licorice Twine and using Foam Squares (AD-0084) popped the balloon on to the edges of the bow!!

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

Here’s to improvising!!!

Wedding Bliss | Gift Slider Die

The other day I posted a card using Cranberry Bliss (CS-0090) card stock and Turbo Teal ink (IP-0116) I had a piece left over and thought I would make a wedding card. Here is the link to the card from the other day that shows how I did the background.     To that base using Foam Squares (AD-0085) I popped up a heart using our Heart Felt Dies (DI-0033) and Heart Piercing Elements (DI-0096) from Mirror Silver (CS-0137).  On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040), I stamped Wedding Bliss (AT-0170) in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) and cut it out.

Wedding Bliss

Using Sparkle Silk (IP) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097), I colored in the layers on the cake to give it some sparkle.  The Wedding Bliss image was popped up using Foam Squares and a piece of Black Licorice Twine (AC-0004) was added to the back.  I added some Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115) using Glue Dots (AD-0083).  I still thought it needed something so I added a Heart from the Fire and Ice (AC-0346) [these are part of our Bloom Benefits] [The Love Filled embellishments (AC-0345) would also look nice on this card – I will list them in the supply list below].

Wedding Bliss2

For the inside I used the Gift Slider Die Set (DI-0384) and cut that out of Mirror Silver (CS-0137) to keep with the wedding theme.

Dandelion Wishes – Birthday

I can’t get enough of the Dandelion Wishes (SS-0497) stamp set.  I don’t know about you but sometimes my craft space is not always organized and I will admit that I had lost this stamp set.  No, not just one stamp, the whole stamp set.  I shouldn’t say lost, I should say misplaced.  Well I found it (3 months later)!!!  I just had to make a card with it in case it went missing again.

Dandelion Wishes

Using Lovely Blue (IP-0075) and the Ink Splat (AT-0108) ATS, I randomly stamped a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock.  I wanted something in the background that did not over power the background.  Then using Pool Play (IP-0051) I stamped some of the images from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.  I stamped a few more images and the sentiment in Denim Days (IP-0010).  I added some Silver Silk (IP-0090) and Sparkle Silk (IP-0126).

The Whip Cream (CS-0040) panel was adhered to a piece of Bush Silver (CS-0135) before adhering to the Denim Days (CS-0082) card base with Foam Squares (AD-0085).

For the inside I stamped it the same way as the front except I only added the Sparkle Silk and did not add the Silver Silk.

What?!?!? – Turbo Teal Ink and Cranberry Bliss Card Stock

Sometimes the creative mind takes over and you just have to go with it!!!

I wanted to make some birthday cards to have on hand and I know I wanted to use the Ink Splat (AT-0108) ATS.  I pulled out a piece of Cranberry Bliss (CS-0090) card stock and for whatever reason reached for my Turbo Teal Ink Pad (IP-0116).  Well I have to say I love how it turned out!

I adhered the Cranberry Bliss piece to a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) and then adhered it to a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.

Make a Wish

Using Silver Embossing Powder (IP-0100) I heat embossed the Make-A-Wish ATS (AT-0246) onto Black Licorice (CS-0003) and cut it out with the coordinating die (DI-0355) or you can buy it as a bundle (BD-0270).  I then popped it up using Foam Squares (AD-0085).  I added some Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115) using Glue Dots (AC-0083)Journey Glaze (AD-0003) was applied to the cup of the sequin.  I wanted to try it.  It doesn’t change the look but it changed the texture when you touch them.  Makes them rounded.

Make a Wish2 copy

For the inside I stamped it the same way as the card front but used the Gift Slider Die Set (DI-0384) so that you can add a gift card.  I will be posting a couple other cards that I made using this die set throughout the week.  I wasn’t sure if I really needed this die in my stash or not but I have to say that I am so glad that I purchased it.  It comes in handy for gift card giving and I love the uniqueness of it.

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

Happy gift card giving!

Be Mine|I Love You |Type Block

I picked the Type Block (AT-0131) as one of my free ATSs with one of my orders.  [See the details in the beginning of either of our catalogs on what rewards you get for being a host if your order is $150 or more].  Not sure what I was going to do with it but then inspiration struck after looking through our Annual Catalogs.  I love that our catalogs give you such great inspiration.  Whether you create the craft project as they did or whether it inspires you to create outside the box so to speak and come up with your own version.

I Love You

I used the Love Stripes (EF-0013) Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Pomegranate Splash (CS-0027) card stock.  This piece was layered onto a Black Licorice (CS-0003) card base.  I cut a piece from the Through the Year Prints (PP-0050) [they carried this over from the Journey Holidays Mini, so you can still order this through the end of June 2018 – awesome, right, I love this paper pack]!  That piece was popped up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

On a scrap piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock, I stamped the Type Block (AT-0131) stamp using Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink and adhered that piece onto a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) card stock.  Using Foam Squares (AD-0085), I popped that panel up onto the card front but at an angle.

I Love You 4

Using our Bright Lights (JD-0047), I highlighted the I and the U and then added a heart from the Love Filled (AC-0345) accents over the L.  Using Glue Dots (AD-0083), I added a bow using Black Licorice Twine (AC-0004).

I Love You 2

For the inside I used some scrap pieces from the Through the Year Prints (PP-0050) and added it to the top and bottom of a piece of Whip Cream card stock.  Using Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) and Candy Apple Ink (IP-0017), I stamped the images from the Be Mine (SS-0130) stamp set.  [The Be Mine stamp set also has coordinating dies and comes in a bundle as well].
