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.

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].

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.

I love adding Sparkle Silk (IP-0126)

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!

Happy Holidays |Ice Skates

I love making wintery type cards and I love our Inspiration Book & Catalog, it is jam packed with inspiration.  Here is my attempt at replicating the creation that is shown on page 104 of the annual catalog.  While it did not come out exactly like the one in the catalog, I am very pleased with how it turned out.

On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock I stamped the Ink Splat (AT-0108) image in Pretty Amethyst (IP-0018) ink.  The Snowflake from the Snow Burst (SS-0144) stamp set was stamped in Pretty Pansy (IP-0026) ink.  Using the Happy Holidays from the Sparkle Trim (SS-0495) stamp set, I stamped it in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) this panel was adhered to a piece of Pretty Pansy (CS-0029) cardstock, that was then adhered to a piece of Pretty Amethyst (CS-0028) cardstock onto a Pretty Pansy card base.

Happy Holidays Ski Sled Skate copy
I colored in the blade of the skate using Color Burst Pencils (JM-0077)

 

On a scrap piece of Whip Cream cardstock, I stamped the skates that come from the Ski Sled Skate (SS-0360) stamp set [love this stamp set, so much fun] onto a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink and cut it out using our Circle Dies (DI-0039) and then stamped the little snowflake from the Poinsettia Basket (SS-0527) in Black Licorice ink as well and punched it out using a 3/4″ Circle Punch (TO-0012).

These pieces were added to the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085).  Before adding the skates, I adhered some Whip Cream Thread (AC-0128) behind it.  The card was finished off with some Silver Silk (IP-0090) and adhered the Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115) using Glue Dots (AD-0083).

I think I am going to make up a few more of these and change the greeting to make it a Winter Wishes, Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Thank You or Just Because.  I love the beauty of winter!

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

Great Deals!!!

 

You Are…

I love the You Are (AT-0228) stamp.  It speaks volumes on its own and makes a great focal point for your card or scrapbook page.

I used Bubble Gum (CS-0099) cardstock for the card base and then cut two smaller panels (Watermelon Fusion (CS-0039) cardstock and Through The Year Prints (PP-0050) to layer on top of it.

I love this paper – so pretty, love the gold outline.

I stamped The Ink Splat (AT-0108) in Journey Gold (IP-0106) on to a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) cardstock before stamping the You Are in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041).  Foam Squares (AD-0085) were used to adhere this piece to the card base.

For the inside of the card, I adhered a scrap piece of the same pattern paper used on the front from the Through The Year prints (there are so many beautiful papers in this pack!!!)  I also stamped some of the images from the Flower Swirls (SS-0228) stamp set in Journey Gold ink to the corner of the card base [There is a bundle option available for the Flower Swirls).  The Be You came from the Take Action (SS-0449) (there is a bundle option available for Take Action as well) stamp set and Dove comes from the Be Brave (SS-0148) stamp set. Both images were stamped in Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027) ink.
