Spring Botanicals Card Set

I am loving the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544) stamp set.  I don’t know how to explain it other than to say that the stamped images have so much depth that you would think that it was two step or triple step stamping.  But it is really just one step stamping!

Spring Botanicals Card Pack 1

I decided to make several different cards with different sayings and used the ink colors for the card bases for these cards.  On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock, I stamped the sentiments in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  The sentiments came from Everyday Script (SS-0543) and Bird Melody (SS-0496).

Then I stamped various images from the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544) stamp set in the following inks:  Summer Days (IP-0042), Pool Play (IP-0051), Bubble Gum (IP-0058) and Lavender Fusion (IP-0036).

These panels were then adhered to the card bases using Easy Glide (AD-0081).  I used Summer Days (CS-0033), Pool Play (CS-0092), Bubble Gum (CS-0099) and Lavender Fusion (CS-0017) for the card bases.  Super easy, super quick and really gorgeous.  A set of these would make a wonderful hand-made gift for someone.  Why not make a couple sets so that you have them on hand.

Spring Botanicals Card Pack 2

With Fun Stampers Journey color palette of inks and coordinating cardstock, the color combinations are endless.

There are several stamp sets just like this one in the Bloom This Way Mini Trends Catalog (CL-0030).  I love this new stamp design.  So much fun!

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

Totetally Tool

I love the Totetally Tool (TO-0113).  Everything fits in one spot, it folds somewhat flat and you can easily pack it in your craft bag for crafting on the go!

Check out this quick video showing the features of the Totetally Tool (TO-0113).

And as a reminder the Totetally Tool (TO-0113) is part of the Spruce Your Space Promotion!

Bloom This Way

The Bloom This Way Trends Mini Catalog (CL-0030) is here!!!!  From Beautiful Blooms to Building a Super, we’ve got you covered!!  And I have to be honest with you, I think this is by far the best Bloom This Way Mini Trends catalog ever!!!  I want every single item in the catalog.  Now if only that money tree would grow in the backyard.

Check out this flipbook showing all the goodies that are waiting for you.

If you are like me and need to actually touch the catalog, you can order one from my on-line store (24/7) and enter product number CL-0030.

My biggest problem is going to be which stamp set should I use first.  Or maybe I should use the Gorgeous (yes Gorgeous with a capital “G”) printed papers first.  I just can’t decide.

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

Be sure to drop me a line in the comments and let me know what product (s) from the new Bloom This Way Trends Mini is your favorite.  I would love to hear from you.

Merry Christmas

I always try to maximize my craft supplies.  I don’t like to waste anything and when you have such pretty papers, etc. you want to use every last inch!  My up-line, Deb is the same way and when she came up with this idea, I was just over the moon with it.  You pretty much use almost every piece! [Thanks Deb!!!]

To make this card you will need Black Licorice (CS-0003) cardstock, Mirror Silver (CS-0137), and Christmas Cheer Prints (PP-0049).

Using a piece of Black Licorice card stock cut to 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, cut out the Gift from the For You Die set (DI-0252).  Keep the negative piece and the gift.  Then out of a piece of Christmas Cheer Prints cut to 3 1/2 x 4 3/4  and do the same thing.

Merry Christmas Gift Mirror 1
I love the Christmas Cheer Prints Paper Pack, so pretty!!

Adhere the Black Licorice negative piece to a piece of Mirror Silver and then you will do the same thing with the Christmas Cheer piece.  Once that is done, you will insert the gift. The Black Licorice will get the Christmas Cheer Prints and the Christmas Cheer Prints will get the Black Licorice.  Pretty neat!!  I heat embossed the Merry Christmas from the Merry Melody stamp set (SS-0516) in Silver Embossing Powder (IP-0100).

Merry Christmas Gift Mirror 4

Using Easy Glide (AD-0082) I adhered each panel to a Black Licorice card base, added some Fashion Silver (AC-0293) and the card was finished.

I will say that our Mirror Paper is very reflective!!  When I was trying to take a picture for this post I kept getting myself and everything that was behind me.  It was not funny at the time, but I can get a laugh out of it now.

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

Star of Wonder | Fresh Forest

I love being out in nature.  It definitely is my go to place when I need to recharge.

I enjoy making nature type cards for the holidays.  Last year I did a Raspberry Berry color, this year I went with Denim Days.  I love how you get a different look with each color.

Using the 1″ circle punch (TO-0013), I punch out a mask from a scrap piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) to make the moon.  I gently adhered this piece to a Whip Cream card panel.  Taking my Denim Days (IP-0010) ink pad, I applied the pad directly to an Clear Block J (TO-0079), the using the Brayer (TO-0087), I picked up the ink from the block and rolled it onto the Whip Cream panel staring at the bottom and working my way up to the top.

Star of Wonder

Using the Fresh Forest (SS-0487) stamp set, I inked up some of the images in Fresh Forest (IP-0013) ink and stamped them onto the same panel.  Using the Star from the Sparkle Trim (SS-0495) set, I stamped that in Journey Silver (IP-0107) ink.  The sentiment came from the Night Star (SS-0518) stamp set [this is a Host Exclusive] in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.

I mixed a bit of Gesso (JM-0072) and water [you can also use acrylic paint (JM-01063) and water – I will put both in the supply list below) and using the Medium Blending Brush (TO-0098) and a Clear Block F (TO-0075), I flicked the mixture off the edge of the acrylic block to make the snow.  I then added Sparkle Silk (IP-0126).  Once that was done I removed the 1″  mask.

This panel was then adhered to a piece of Mirror Silver (CS-0137) before being added to a Denim Days (CS-0082) card base.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Night Star (SS-0518) [Host Exclusive] stamp set in Black Licorice (IP-0041) and also added the star from the front to the inside using Journey Silver (IP-0107) ink.

Merry Christmas |Snow Frames

I love the Snow Frames die (DI-0246).  So elegant, so many possibilities.

I cut out a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) cardstock using the Snow Frames Die (DI-0246).  Then using the Journey Rectangles (DI-0041), I cut out a piece of River Stone (CS-0094) and Whip Cream (CS-0040) cardstock.  On the Whip Cream piece, I stamped the Ink Splat (AT-0108) stamp in Journey Silver (IP-0107) ink and then stamped the Merry Christmas from the Happy Merry (SS-0522) stamp set in Denim Days (IP-0010) ink.  I layered the Whip Cream piece onto the River Stone piece and then layered that onto the Snow Frames cut out.  Added some Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) before adhering it to the Denim Days (CS-0082) card base.

Snow Frames Merry Christmas
So Pretty!!!
