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.

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

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

And remember to always take the scenic route!

Scenic Route Birthday

Using the Petal Wall (EF-0007) embossing folder, I embossed a piece of Kiwi Slice (CS-0016) cardstock and layered it onto a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.  I stamped Happy Birthday from the Good Karma (SS-0566) stamp set in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) onto a piece of Pool Play (CS-0092) cardstock.  I added some Beach Ball Silk (IP-0145) and Cool Pool Silk (IP-0105). 

Scenic Route Birthday4

Using Easy Glide (AD-0081), I adhered a piece from the Sunday Adventure Prints (PP-0053) onto the Pool Play piece [love, love, love the prints in this pack].  Adhered some Fresh Limeade Tape (AC-0311).  I popped this panel up on the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

Scenic Route Birthday5

On a scrap piece of Whip Cream cardstock. I stamped the butterfly from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) in Black Licorice ink and cut it out using the coordinating die.  Using our Bubble Gum Silk (IP-0092) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097), I colored in the butterfly.  [yes you can color with our silks and they are part of this month’s promotion].  Using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085), I popped up the butterfly onto the card front.

On another scrap piece of Whip Cream cardstock, I stamped the bike from the Scenic Route (AT-0283) stamp set in Black Licorice ink as well.  Then using a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097) and our Bubble Gum Silk (IP-0092), Citrus Cooler Silk (IP-0093) and Gold Silk (IP-0096), I colored in the flowers.    I cut out the bike and added some Beach Ball and Cool Pool Silk before popping it up on the card front with Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085).

Tools Rule | Happy Birthday

The Lots of Dots (DI-0424) Die Set is a new die in the Spring into Summer Trends Mini Catalog (CL-0035).  I have so many ideas for it. The first time I saw it I immediately thought of peg board.  I thought the Tools Rule Bundle (BD-0135) would go great with it.

Tools Rule

Using a piece of our White Liner Sheets (AD-0113), I added it to the bottom of a Hazelnut Blend (CS-0013) card base and added our Silver Shavings (AC-0344) [I thought it looked like saw dust and really went with the inside sentiment].

I cut out a piece of Oatmeal Cookie (CS-0023) cardstock with the Lots of Dots Die Set.  I cut one of our Fusion Ink Sponges (JM-0014) and used it to sponge the edged and front with Oatmeal Cookie Ink (IP-0011).  This piece was popped up on the card base using Foam Squares (AD-0084).

I embossed a piece of Brush Silver (CS-0135) using the Diamond Netting (EF-0026) embossing folder and adhered that to the card base using Easy Glide (AD-0081).  I popped up a piece of Corrugated (ST-0124) card stock between the peg board and diamond plate using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

Tools Rule 2

All the images I used from the Tools Rule Bundle (BD-0135) were stamped in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) onto either Lemon Drop (CS-0018), River Stone (CS-0094) or Oatmeal Cookie (CS-0023) cardstock and cut out with the coordinating die. [with the exception of the hammer, that I cut out free hand as there is no die for that image].  I colored them in using Color Burst Pencils (JM-0077).  They were then popped up using Foam Squares and the hammer I adhered using Craft Glue (AD-0111).

The Happy Birthday came from the Inside & Out (SS-0576) stamp set was stamped in Black Licorice ink onto a scrap piece of Oatmeal Cookie cardstock. I fussy cut this out and then sponged the edges with Oatmeal Cookie ink before popping it up with Foam Squares onto the card front.

For the inside of the card the sentiments and image were stamped in Black Licorice ink.

Tools Rule 3

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