Happy for You Twinkle Butterflies with Pear Blossom Press

Sunday, April 21, 2024

I'm happy to share with you today my latest project for Pear Blossom Press! I am using Twinkle Lights to light up my butterflies on a floral background. I started with foiling my background and using the coordinating stencils with Interference Inks to get a subtle, shimmery background. I then used my BetterPress to press my butterflies and sentiment.

The butterflies are watercolored with orange and I used the coordinating dies to cut them out along with my sentiments. You can follow along in my video below of how I assembled the Twinkle Lights on the inside of the card and added my Butterflies above the LEDs of the lights. I added a little star shaped die cut so the card receiver knows where to press!

Sweet As Honeysuckle Shaker Card with This Calls for Confetti

Saturday, April 20, 2024

I'm so excited to share today's project with you! I'm using new items from This Calls for Confetti and includes a beautiful, memorial set called Honeysuckle. I also have a new confetti mix with the same name that inspired me to make a shaker card. This was easy to do using the new Hello Elongated Frame Die Set! You can follow along in my video down below to see how this card was put together. It's my latest Oh So Inspired Collaboration video where we all use the same card to inspire a new project. 

From the inspiration piece by Dania's Doodles, I loved the flowers as the center focal of the card as well as the grey, green and purple colors. But, not only is this a video hop, over on Instagram there is a hop with This Calls for Confetti! We're celebrating the release of this new collection and the hop starts at 10am PT so make sure to head over there later today to see the inspiration with this new collection. At the time of scheduling this blog post, the new items have not yet been listed but you can shop the new collection by clicking on the "New Releases" for TCFC in my supply list.

Hello Friend Spring Animals Card with Scrapbook.com

Thursday, April 18, 2024

Scrapbook.com has a new Livestream Deal today! The latest bundle features the Spring Animals Stamp Set, Coordinating Dies and two Glitter Brush Markers in Chocolate and Tan. I wanted to use this bundle but also step it up with some other spring themed items in my crafty stash. You can follow along in my video today, but I shared how I colored my images from Spring Animals and Sunshine Blooms with Glitter Brush Markers.

I layered the images and sentiment on a piece of vellum that is layered onto a leafy pattern paper. I like to use vellum on busy backgrounds where I'm going to make it more busy with my images as a way to add a break in the business without covering the background. Once I have everything on the card, I added a few Pops of Color to bring a bit of glossy shine to the card. I hope you check out today's deal and like my floral, critter card!

You Rock Box Card with The Sassy Club

Wednesday, April 17, 2024

Having some more fandom fun today with another Sassy Box Card! This card is simple, as I just really wanted to color in this music teacher from You Rock. I made my own pattern with the guitar pick stamps with red ink to match my sentiment styled after the movie's title. I love how cute this character has turned out and I want to make a few more cards with him. I think he'd make a great Father's Day card or for musicians in your life (or fans of the actor).

You can watch a short video down below of how the pattern and box card came together. What other characters would you like to see on a Sassy Box Card? Let me know in the comments!

Best Stitches Birthday Shaker Card with Spellbinders

Tuesday, April 16, 2024

I did some experimenting with the BetterPress Plate of the Month for April 2024 and wanted to mix hot foiling and pressing with the set. I also used the latest Craft Roulette parameters to inspire my card. I started with foiling the thimble, scissors and bobbin with Glimmer Hot Foil and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I then pressed the thread with a green interference ink onto the bobbin as well as my sentiment with the same ink on a black oval that was cut from the Stitching Die of the Month.

To add a blackboard look to my oval, I splattered it with white watercolor ink. I then made a shaker card panel with sequins and added the panel to my card base. My oval and images were added to the front of my shaker card and I didn't like the white border of the card so I added black ink. I wish now looking at my blue cardstock on the back of the shaker, I had some ink blending, but it's still fun and funky! I think this press set is really pretty and detailed and it was fun to use the two different layers of the bobbin.

Favorite Deputy Love Card with Kindred Stamps

Monday, April 15, 2024

I wanted to color up this cute duo, so I decided to grab a Show Us Your SheetLoad sketch - I'm a bit behind in playing along so this is from February 2024. I used patterned paper from my collection and followed the sketch to create my layout. For my take on the sketch, I stamped my sentiment onto the white half circle and added a die cut word across the patterned paper that goes across the card for a tone on tone look. I did add some pink ink with a Paper Pouncer to add a little ombre look, but it is a bit hard to see in the photos.

The other change to the sketch is that I added images above the sentiments that I stamped from the Kindred Stamps sets Toy Box and Playtime (they are currently sold out, but join the Facebook Group in case they're ever re-released). I colored them in with my OLO markers and fussy cut the images out. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights and popped up my images onto the card. I just love how cute this card turned out!

Springtime Hello Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Hi, friends! I felt inspired to combine flowers for a Spring wreath from this year and last year’s Spring releases! I started with my background and I had a natural, apricot cardstock in my stash and I did a tone on tone look by blending Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide with the Easter Words Stencil. After splattering a green, metallic watercolor, I used the largest Stitched Torn Rectangle Die when it was dry.

Next I stamped my images with an alcohol marker friendly black ink - I stamped the wreath and small flowers from the Leafy Spring Wreath Stamp Set along with the daisies and bow from the Daisies Stamp Set. I used my OLO markers to color them in and you can see the colors in my video today.

When I was done coloring, I used the Daisies Coordinating Dies and Leafy Spring Wreath Coordinating Dies to cut all of the images out. I planned out my wreath and adhered the flower and bow to the wreath with liquid adhesive. I used foam adhesive to attach my wreath to the stenciled panel. I had a yellow, scalloped Sentiment Strip Die cut from another project and was happy it matched the yellow of my flowers!

I cut another strip from white cardstock and stamped my sentiment from the Sentiment Strips: Easter Stamp Set with pink ink. I layered the die cuts together and popped it up on my panel with foam adhesive as well. The panel was attached to my card base and I added a few 4mm Clear Droplets on the wreath to give it some subtle shine and a dewy look! I hope you enjoyed today’s card - I’m so inspired by the apricot, pink, green and yellows… Beautiful colors for Spring!

Under the Stairs Fandom Card with Miss Ink Stamps

Saturday, April 13, 2024

It's a fandom fun kind of day and I'm sharing my latest video with Miss Ink Stamps' latest release! The magical collection had stencils, stamps and dies released back in March and I wanted to share my take on using the new scene building dies for my card. I started with stamping my wizard and coloring him in my my OLO markers, then used the coordinating die to cut him out. 

Next I did my paper trimming and die cutting for all my pieces you see on the card. You can following along with my video down below to see how the assembly came together. My sentiment is tamped with black ink right onto my patterned "wall" paper and I added some white highlights around the card to give it more of a cartoon look. I hope you enjoy today's video - if you're not into this fandom, the die set is still a MUST as you can make adorable scenes!

Friday, April 12, 2024

Smiles & Wishes with Scrapbook.com

Thursday, April 11, 2024

There is a new Livestream Deal from Scrapbook.com today! It's a fun bundle with stamps, dies, paper and a stencil. I don't have the sentiment dies yet, but I have the rest so I made a quick and colorful card to share with you. I started with using Simon Hurley inks to create a rainbow background and splattered some water since it is water reactive. Mixing Cloud Whip and some Snowflake Pops of Color, I added flowers with the Daisy Stencil and set it aside to dry.

I trimmed a piece of yellow cardstock to 3-1/4 x 4-1/2" and orange cardstock to slightly larger than that to have a small, thin border around the yellow. I stamped my images and sentiments randomly on the yellow cardstock and adhered the orange behind it once the ink was dry. Using foam adhesive, I popped up the panel to my dried background and added a few more Pops around the yellow panel. My final card front was added to a top folding A2 card base.

Let me know what you think of my quick card and if you scored the bundle for yourself!
