Thinking of You | Life is Beautiful

A lot of us crafters struggle with masculine cards. I was beyond thrilled when I saw the Life is Beautiful stamp set in the Good Life Collection.  This stamp set along with our Diamond Plate embossing folder were a winning combination for this card.

Thinking of You Life is Beautiful

I used the Life is Beautiful, Bloom Burst and Inside & Out stamp sets along with the Diamond Plate embossing folder.

Here is a quick video for you.

There are so many options for this card, you could personalize it by coloring in the tractor.  [I know there are a lot of tractor lovers out there who have their favorite manufacturers.]

Let’s Ride | Happy Birthday

I am so sad to see that two of my favorite stamp sets are on the retirement list.  Let’s Ride (AT-0039) and Cake Time (SS-0138).  So if these two stamp sets appeal to you, order them soon before they sell out.  The retirement sale is only until the end of June 2018 or while supplies last.

Let's Ride HB

On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock I stamped the image from Let’s Ride (AT-0039) and the greeting from Inside & Out (SS-0576) in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041).  Then I added some Silver Silk (IP-0090).  I had a scrap strip of our Mirror Silver (CS-0137) and adhered that to the Whip Cream panel using Easy Glide (AD-0081).  Two pieces of Black Licorice Twine (AC-0004) as added on top of the Mirror Silver and adhered to the back of the Whip Cream panel with Easy Glide.

Let's Ride HB3

The Whip Cream panel was adhered to a Tangerine Fusion (CS-0036) panel.  Foam Squares (AD-0085) were used to pop this panel up onto a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) before being adhered to a Whip Cream card base.

Let's Ride HB4

The inside greeting is from the Cake Time (SS-0138) stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink.

Let's Ride HB2

Here are the measurements:
Whip Cream = 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 and 4 1/4 x 11 (scored at 5 1/2)
Tangerine Fusion = 3 3/4 x 5
Black Licorice = 4 x 5 1/4

Tip:  Change the greeting and make it into a Father’s Day Card.  The In The Family (SS-0462) is a great stamp set to have on hand.  You can check it out here.

May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Let’s Ride!!!

Happy Birthday | Mystic Romance

The Mystic Romance collection is just gorgeous.  I love everything!! There is so much color and detail in the Mystic Romance Prints (PP-0047).  I am so sad to see that it is on the retirement list.

Check out this quick card using one of the prints from the Mystic Romance paper pack as the focal for the card.

Happy Birthday Mystic Romance
There is so much detail on this paper!!!

 

On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock I stamped the sentiment from the Date Me (SS-0494) stamp set.  The Happy was stamped in Cranberry Bliss (IP-0049) and the Birthday was stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041).  [the nice thing about this stamp set is that they are separate to you can easily stamp them in different colors and I just love the font].

I adhered the stamped Whip Cream piece to a Black Licorice (CS-0003) panel.  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) I adhered a piece from the Mystic Romance Prints (PP-0047).  [so many beautiful designs to choose from].  I adhered Green Olive Grosgrain Ribbon (AC-0248) in the middle and then adhered the panel to a Whip Cream card base.

Happy Birthday Mystic Romance2

For the inside I used a sentiment from the Inside & Out (SS-0576) stamp set and stamped it in Black Licorice.

Happy Birthday Mystic Romance3

Thank You Card | Banners & Bows Promotion

I saw this card on page 12 of the Celebrating Life’s Moments – Spring into Summer Trends mini catalog.  I loved how bright it was and thought what an awesome Thank You card for my customers.    I didn’t have the Banner Parade Dies (DI-0031) so I had to improvise but you’ll be happy to know that the Banner Parade Dies are on their way to me because after I made this card, I wanted to make sure that I had them in my stash of craft supplies.  I already have an Amaze machine (TO-0134) but if I didn’t, I would have bought the  Banner & Bows Bundle (BD-0391) [You will understand why when you see that you get the Amaze Machine for Free as part of the Banner & Bows Bundle], you get some fun dies to play with and the Bundle Price is a fantastic.

Thank You Banners3

Let’s dive into how to make this card.

On a Huckleberry Fusion (CS-0015) card base, I attached a panel from the Sunday Adventure Prints (PP-0053).  I flagged the end using the Grand Pro Shears (TO-0064)  it would have been so much easier to use the Banners Parade Dies, [The Banner Parade Dies can be purchased separately or they are part of the Banners & Bows Bundle (BD-0391) Promotion], and cut  piece of Limeade Splash (CS-0020) and Lemon Drop (CS-0018) card stock.  I used the Charming Thank You (Host Exclusive with an order of $150 – DI-0445) to cut a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003).  I used Craft Glue (AD-0111) to attach it to the card front.  [Did you know that the craft glue is part of the Banners & Bows Bundle as well].

Thank You Banners2

The sentiment comes from the Inside & Out (SS-0576) stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) onto a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040)  card stock and cut out using the Journey Circles Dies (DI-0039).  I popped it up on the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

Thank You Banners

The Butterfly comes from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) and was stamped in Black Licorice ink and cut it out using the coordinating dies and the Amaze machine.  I used Turbo Teal (IP-0125) and Electric Lime (IP-0121) splashes and a Blending Brush (TO-0097) to color in the Butterfly and popped it up on the front of the card using Foam Squares (AD-0084).

Thank You Banners4

To finish off the card I added  Journey Sequins – Blue Skies (AC-0113) using Glue Dots (AD-0083). 

How fun is this card?  Be sure to order your Banners & Bows Bundle (BD-0391). It is only available while supplies last. Check out all the fun items that are included in this bundle – and you get the Amaze Die Cutting Machine Free* – Amazing!!!!

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.

With Sympathy | April 2018 Bloom Box

I love the images from the April 2018 Love Life Bloom Box and have been having fun creating additional projects with them.  This is definitely being added to my list of “go to” stamps!

Sympathy

On a Whip Cream (CS-0040) panel, I stamped a floral image from the April 2018 Bloom Box – Love Life in Grape Fusion (IP-0006) ink and stamped it around the outer edge of the panel.  Using the Beautiful Wings (SS-0353) stamp set, I stamped the Butterfly in Pretty Amethyst (IP-0018), Summer Days (IP-0042), and Black Licorice (IP-0041).

Sympathy2

The With Sympathy Sentiment came from the Inside & Out (SS-0576) stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink. [yes, this stamp set is on my “go to” list as well].

The panel was then adhered to a Pretty Amethyst (CS-0028) panel before being adhered to a Pretty Pansy (CS-0029) card base.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inside & Out stamp set in Black Licorice onto a piece of Pretty Amethyst.

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

And remember to always take the scenic route!
