Christmas Critters card with Papertrey ink

Hello!

Just wanted to share a card I made to play along with Create Along with Us July.



Here is the card that caught my eye from Release Day 1 by Nichole:


I really love this new bird that she used in silhouette just by using ink and then stamping the sentiments! 

I instantly thought of Christmas Critters to be the silhouette on my panel. I just love this set so much so I decided it would be Christmas in July!

I die cut the two mice with full sticky post it notes to create my masks. Then I sponged the back ground using Green Gumball from Stampin' Up.

Next I stamped the sentiments from the accompanying set all over and after letting it dry well I used a mix and mat to cut it out.

Before adding it to Pure Poppy, I embossed it using my Quatrefoil Cover Plate to add some interest.

Four holly leaves and berries were added the corners and a gold ribbon was added last.

You are Loved with The Stamps of Life Drop-Ins

Hello!

I wanted to share a card I created today using some things from The Stamps of Life.

I began by embossing a piece of watercolor paper with the Flower Power folder. I added a rainbow of watercolor and let this dry.

Next, I die cut the sentiment from Sizzix You are Loved 3D Drop ins from Strawberry card stock. I tied on a piece of Lemonade ribbon and added it to Emerald Envy card stock (Stampin' Up).

I really liked it just as is but I decided to add these lovely white daisies. I like the contrast with all the color of the background.

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #290 Stenciling and Masking

Hello and Happy Saturday!

I created a card for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #290 Stenciling and Masking challenge.

Betsy has a great video this week sharing this technique.

I stuck down a piece of Bristol paper onto a cricut mat (great idea, Betsy!) and covered the paper with  the open rectangle stencil from the MIM Herb Garden. I love this stencil.  The second stencil in the kit is similar but a circle shape. Incredibly versatile!

I blended the background using Scattered Straw from Tim Holtz Distress. I stamped the images next but I messed up some at the bottom. The stencil is pretty thick and I didn't apply enough texture.  So, I did it again!!! Sometimes you it takes more than one try to get something right!

I cut the image out using one of the frames from the Mix and Mat Series. This was added to a piece of yellow card stock.

The card base is Pinefeather (I love this green!) and I added a lighter green die cut of a Papertrey ink cover plate.

I went really old school and tied the twine around the edges. I used to wrap all my grandfather's Christmas gifts for him and he taught me to run the ribbon around like this. I would always see this done at the fancy department stores when they used to wrap gifts. Funny what memories come to mind when I craft....

Anyway, I stamped the sentiment and popped it all up on the card.

Hello with Lawn Fawn and My Favorite Things

Hello!

Today I have a card I created using a mix of products from My Favorite Things, Lawn Fawn and The Stamps of Life.

It all began with the largest die from My Favorite Things Blueprints 29. I had a piece of a cloud patterned piece from The Stamps of Life and I decided to die cut this paper to create a window.

On a gray card stock base I stamped a wood grain background using gray ink (Stampin' Up). Of course, I missed a spot when I stamped! I didn't have time to redo it so I just went with it. Does this ever happen to you??

I glued the window and the cloud paper down and then put a bright red Hello on the bottom of the frame.

I stamped, die cut and colored two birds from Lawn Fawn Love Letters. I popped up the blue birds placing one of the birds on my blank spot!

Hello with Paper Smooches Flap Happy

Hello!

I was so inspired by this card from Rachel that was featured on the CASology blog this week.

I love the use of the Hexagon shape. The hexagon was very popular several years ago and it seems to be making a return to the paper craft world.

I die cut my hexagon from white card stock using Hello and Thanks label from Reverse Confetti.

I stenciled lightly on a white card stock base with Pretty in Pink ink (SU). Oh my, I love stencils! You just can't mess them up and they add such lovely interest.

Next, I die cut a butterfly from white and stamped the solid image with Lawn Fawn Sugarplum. The antenna were stamped on the hexagon in Lavender.

I stamped the sentiment in black. The stamp set I used is Flap Happy.

The last thing I added was a trio of clear sequins.



Thanks Rachel for the inspiration!!!

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #289 Building Wreaths with Small Images

Hello!

Time for PTI Make It Monday #289 Building Wreaths with Small Images!

You can see this week's video from Lizzie HERE.

I have been cleaning up my craft room and I rediscovered an older set, Mod Squad. It is retro and I thought it would be fun to use. It is a little out of my comfort zone so it is good to try new things!

I began by cutting a circle and lightly tracing it on a piece of white card stock. I chose the following Stampin' Up ink colors:

Night of Navy
Lost Lagoon
Peach Parfait
Pretty in Pink

I stamped around the circle and decided to add one more color and small shape using Bermuda Bay.

Next, I stamped the edge border like Lizzie's card and I used my stamp positioner for this. There is no way I could have done it without that tool!

I trimmed down the white paper and attached it all onto Night of Navy card stock. The silver ribbon is from Stampin' Up.

Thanks and I'm Owl Yours with My Favorite Things

Hello!




Today I am sharing a card I made for MFT's Color Challenge 72.

I began by cutting a piece of patterned paper (the stamps of life) using the large die from Blueprints 26.  Then I ran it through my machine again with the new Thanks die.

I tied on some red twine at one end and added all this to a piece of Blueberry card stock and then added that to a gray card stock base.

The owl was stamped from I'm Owl Yours and die cut.

I did add some Silver Wink of stella and red to its nose!


The last thing I added was a trio of red hearts.

Happy Birthday with My Favorite Things

Hello!

Today I am sharing a card I made for the MFT Card Sketch Challenge # 339.


I finally got time this week to craft and use my MFT I'm Owl Yours stamps and dies. I recently bought them after having both on my wish list since they were released. They are just beyond cute. 

I added a woodgrain pattern via a stencil to Baked Brown Sugar Card stock (SU).

I stamped several owls on watercolor card stock and die cut them. I began coloring one with Zig Markers in the body and did the upper part of the face with a Pink Wink of Stella to have some shimmer.

The scalloped square was cut from Pixie paper and I used a navy for the Square Frame.

I cut another center square from Bubblegum and stamped a few hearts using coordinating ink.

A banner was cut from white with Blueprints 29. The sentiment was stamped in brown.

I liked what I made but I wanted a little more! I had a die cut of balloons from Mama Elephant Up We Go I got from Joann's. I colored this bouquet and added it at top under the frame to try and give the illusion that they are up in the air.

Happy Birthday with The Stamps of Life

Hello!

Just popping in today to share a card I made using the Sizzix Drop In Happy Birthday Card Front Dies.

I began with a base of green card stock and cut a piece of patterned paper to the same size as the card front.

Next, using three Spectrum Sparkle and Wink of Stella markers I started coloring a piece of watercolor paper to get a sparkly ombre effect. I love these markers. They are so addictive and just beautiful.



I die cut the paper using the big birthday die:


After it was all assembled, I added a few puffy Popsicle stickers that were included in this month's Card Kit Club.

Birthday Wishes with The Stamps of Life

Hello!

I wanted to share a card today that I made using the newest card kit from The Stamps of Life.

I die cut the patterned paper from the Flower Power die set. This was added to green card stock after I added orange ribbon.

 The white circle was cut from the die included in the Card kit. It was added to a yellow circle also cut from just the outer circle. This is a "drop-in" die where you can leave the cut image in the paper.

A trio of green sequins was added last.

Papertreyink June Blog Hop

Hello!


Today is the Papertreyink June Blog Hop!

This is the inspiration photo from Anthropologie:


I was stumped by this photo this month. I finally remembered that I had some glassine paper from We R memory keepers that you can use to make gift bags. I die cut a blue ombre piece using the large die from MFT Blueprints 10 and attached it to a white card stock base.

Using the circle dies from Don't Forget to Write I cut the shapes using Melon Berry and Harvest Gold. 

The fruit comes from the preprinted pieces included in the PTI Still Life Summer Make It Mini Kit.

I added a trio of clear sequins and ribbon in Harvest gold to finish it up.





Here is a close up of the fruit - it so beautiful and realistic:

Paper Smooches Guest Designer Search July

Hi!

Just wanted to share a card today I made for the PS Guest Designer Search July.

I stamped several vegetables from Vegtastic and die cut them. I then colored a tomato with Copics.

These veggies are so cute to me, especially in the summer. I also really like the sentiments.

When I saw Let's Ketchup - that was the one for this card!

I kept this card simple by adding a little green twine from The Stamps of Life. I really wanted the tomato to be the focal point.

My Favorite Things Camp Create Glitzy Glitter Day 5

Hello!

My final cards with My Favorite Things Camp Create Glitzy Glitter Day 5!

I loved the inspiration video that was shown on Day 5 but I don't have lots of glitter. I decided to die cut some butterflies from Pixie card stock ( a light purple from The Stamps of Life) but before cutting I added Stick It adhesive to the front and back to make it a sticker.

I applied Dazzling diamonds glitter (stampin' Up) all over the front and burnished it onto the cut.

I cut two pieces of white card stock to 4 x 5.25 and quickly stenciled with Distress inks using Papertrey Ink stencils. I used Worn lipstick and Salty Ocean.

I stamped the sentiment with Lawn Fawn inks using Written in Watercolor. Love this big, bold stamp set. It really helps quickly fill a card front.

I added the butterflies and added one to a white card base; the other to a pixie card base.





This was such a fun challenge!!

My Favorite Things Camp Create Day 4: Sensational Sliders

Hello!

Here is another card I created for Camp Create Day 4: Sensational Sliders.


I used the some the contents of my newest Paper Pumpkin to create this card. If you aren't familiar with this product, this is a monthly kit from Stampin' Up that includes stamps, ink and the items to create cards or treat bags, etc.

I stamped a watermelon and hand cut it since there is no die. 

I cut the slider hole with Lawn Fawn's Slide on over in the card base. The watermelon was added to a penny to slide. 

A banner was cut and stamped with It's Your day. I added the green sequins from Trick or Treat Pretty Pink Posh to finish it off!

My Favorite Things Camp Create Day 3: Spectacular Shakers

Hello!

Another card with My Favorite Things and Camp Create Day 3: Spectacular Shakers!

I used a kit to create the shaker card. It is from Queen and Company. They are so much fun. I added "diamonds" to the center of each butterfly. The paper was die cut with the coordinating Butterfly die that works with this kit.

It was adhered and the die cut - Many Thanks was added in light purple. I added clear wink of stella on the words. Finally, I glued down few sequins.

Sending Sunshine with My Favorite Things Camp Create

I die cut a heart from a Stampin' Up heart framelit in Kraft. I dry embossed the word Sunshine from Papertrey Ink's Summer Still Life Mini kit. I stamped the word Sending in Melon Mambo ink.

The background paper was cut using the base from MFT Stamps Blueprints 26.

A light pink ribbon was tied on before adhering the paper to the Kraft card base and the heart was popped up in the center. I added some die cut hearts from MFT Stamps Blueprints 29.

Hello!

This Sunday is Father's Day and I am so grateful for my wonderful father, Frank, who has taught me so much about life.

I am also so grateful for my husband, Rob, the father of my two girls. We love him so much!!

I used my Misti and stamped the ties using different colors of markers. The sentiment was stamped with brown ink.

I die cut white card stock with Avery Elle Wonky Stitches to add some interest.

My Favorite Things Camp Create Day 2: Remarkable Resist

Hello!

Time for MFT Camp Create Day 2: Remarkable Resist!



Embossing is the first technique I ever learned in stamping and I have always loved it. It is easy and can really pack a punch on a card. I am excited to use that today for Camp Create.

I began with a piece of watercolor paper. I embossed stars from Primitive Pumpkins with Hero Arts White Puffy powder. It leaves a raised image and adds some nice texture.

I sponged Distress Blueprint Sketch and Candied apple on the top and bottom and left the middle white to resemble the colors of the American Flag.


Then I stamped the sentiment using Papertrey Ink Wet Paint Alphabet and Numbers on white card stock using Real Red and Night of Navy ink (Stampin' Up).

This was cut in a rectangle and I stamped a few more stars from the same stamp set.

Red and white twine were added last.

MFT Sketch Challenge #336

Hello!

Time for this week's MFT Sketch Challenge # 336.


I cut the banner from scrap card stock using the Sunny Studio's Fishtail Banners II. These are awesome for making a quick, cute banner!

The heart was cut using framelits from Stampin' Up. It was stamped with dark blue and MFT Stamps Written in Watercolor.

These were mounted on a green card base. A small banner from MFT Blueprints was cut in yellow and added to the heart.

Three tiny pearls and a ribbon finished it off.

My Favorite Things Camp Create Day 1: Wonderful Watercolor

Hello!

Time to go to camp! Camp Create that is!


Today is My Favorite Things Camp Create Day 1: Wonderful Watercolor! We were challenged to create something watercolored. The video by Stephanie featured a beautiful galaxy. I tried to create one of my own but wasn't very successful the first time. 

I tried several more times, using a variety of different colors. When it was close to dry I added a few splatters of white shimmer paint.

The sentiment is from My Favorite things and has become a favorite. I cut it 3 times to add a little dimension. 

The watercolor piece was added to glitter paper and the base was black card stock.





Can't wait to see what we are creating tomorrow!
