You Crack Me Up

Good morning all and Happy New Year!!!  It’s designer Belinda here to share a cute Easter card with you today using the new Easter Chicky stamp set.  I choose to use the digi version of this stamp set for my card.

To create my card base I used Spellbinder’s Radiant Rectangle dies.  For the white and yellow background pieces they were cut using sticker paper, glittered with Sparkling Snow and Sunny Daze.  The images were then resized and printed out.  I did print 2 of the row of flowers and cut all of them out using my Silhouette.  Sparkle was added to all of the images using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Sparkling Snow glitter.  Small drops of Dandelion and Green Apple Crystal Drops were added to the flowers.

The 2nd row of flowers were placed on top of the chick using foam dots. A 2nd flower for the top of the egg shell was printed, cut out and placed on top of the egg using foam dots.  Using the small glue pen along the edges of the sentiment, Hyacinth glitter was added.  I really love this cute stamp it will be perfect for your Easter cards.

Be sure to visit the store to see all the new stamp sets you will love them all!!

Thanks so much for stopping by have a wonderful day, see you soon!

Spring Bunny {12.28.2016}

Hello from Designer Chris! I am bringing you a card today showcasing the Spring Bunny stamp set, which is absolutely gorgeous! Let’s check it out.

I stamped the bunny on white cardstock with black ink, then sprinkled on Clear Detail embossing powder and heat embossed it. I colored the bunny, eggs, and flowers with Copic markers. Then, I started adding SPARKLE! I rolled out some Nuvo Glue Pen Fine onto the images, and sprinkled on glitter. I added Cloud Nine glitter to the eggs, Bubble Gum glitter to the pink flowers, and Orchid glitter to the purple flowers. The Cloud Nine glitter was perfect for the eggs – even though they are different colors, the Cloud Nine glitter made the eggs really sparkly and still allowed the colors to come through. The eggs look great, don’t you think?

Here is a closeup of some of the flowers and egg here. The glitters made these really pretty!

I stamped the sentiment using Versamark Ink Pad, and then sprinkled on White Detail embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool.

I layered the card over some die cut shapes and added on some Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops along the outer edge for extra pizazz.

This Spring Bunny stamp set is so adorable and I really had fun making this card. It makes me really happy to see this bunny. I know you will love this set!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

-Chris

For Someone Special

Merry Christmas everyone! The card I share Today is not overly Christmas looking but I think it is suitable for the occasion.

I used Build A Wreath Digital Stamp Set to make the card. It’s fantastic set. You can build your own uniqeu wreaths. I chose the sprig wreath and added leaves and berries. It was time consuming process. But only because I had to make it twice… Right after I finished placing all the leaves and berries to the wreath, and I was happy with the result, I wanted to save my work but computer froze. So, I took a camera and made a photo of my computer screen. After computer was restarted, I imported the photo to computer and used it as a reference guide. At least I didn’t had to re-think placement of the leaves again. But despite everything, it was fun to play with this stamp set.

Image was colored with Promarkers. To the berries I added Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. It dries clear and leaves nice dimensional shine.  wreath and the sentiment are cut out with Silhouette machine.

Lavender Iris Glitter was adhered to the bow with Sakura Glue Pen.

On the background I used wooden pattern paper. To add some interest I made score lines to it and added Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso Distress Inks directly to paper. I also sprinkled Super Thick Silver Embossing Powder on top and heated with a heat tool from underneath until powder melted. I also added drops of Wisteria Purple Nuvo Crystal Drops to the pattern paper.

Edged of the pattern paper was distressed with scissors. I took a white lace and colored it with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink. Lace was placed to peek out underneath the pattern paper.

If you like Build A Wreath Digital stamp set but prefer rubber stamps, I recommend to keep your eyes open on New Year 😉

Material used:
Stamp Credits: Build A Wreath Digi;
Glitters: Lavender Iris (G1061);
Embossing Powders: Super Thick Silver (EP467);
Inks: Distress Inks (Vintage Photo, Ground Espresso, Shaded Lilac);
Coloring Medium: Promarkers;
Adhesives: Sakura Glue Pen, Foam Tape;
Cardstock: White, Pattern Paper (ScrapBerry’s – Forest);
Embellishments: White lace, Nuvo Crystal Drops (Wisteria Purple, Morning Dew);

Merry Christmas to you all!

Rustic Flowers – Snapdragons

Hello friends!

It’s Designer Jess here with a quick, fun card featuring Rustic Flowers-Snapdragons.

Supply List:

Rustic Flowers-Snapdragons Stamp Set #DIGI00-816P5

Jewel Drops – Key Lime 645N

Copper Embossing Powder – EP236

Tiger Orange Glitter – GM2003

Daisy Glitter – GM2019

Dogwood Rose Glitter – GM2021

Ballerina Glitter – GM2024

Nuvo Glue Pen – Small 202N

Tonic Die – Simply Screens – Clematis Vine – 1047e

Tear-ific Tape – 1/2″ SAT04

Foam Squares – 01613

This was such an easy card to put together!  To start, print out the gorgeous pre-colored image onto white cardstock.  Using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, add your Glitters to the different flowers. I used Dogwood Rose, Ballerina, Tiger Orange and Daisy Glitters on my flowers.  Soooo pretty!

I really wanted to emphasize the copper of the gorgeous can holding the flowers. So, I grabbed my Copper Embossing Powder and added some detail using the Nuvo Small Pen – heat setting of course!  The results were just gorgeous!

Fussy cut out the entire image, then set aside while you go to work on the background.

To make the background, I took a piece of light green cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot with an embossing folder. I just loved the look of the Clematis Vine Tonic Die, so I die cut one out using a darker green cardstock.  I attached the embossed panel to the cardbase with 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape, then used the Small Glue Pen once again to adhere my die cut piece of cardstock.

Foam Squares were used to pop up the focal image to give more dimension. I printed off the sentiment onto white cardstock and used the glue pen one more time to add a pop of Copper Embossing Powder to the word “Cheer”.  A bit of ribbon was added and I used the Foam Squares again to adhere the sentiment.

See that nifty brush? It’s a set that’s now available in the SNS Shop that helps to pop out all the little pieces from intricate die cuts! I LOVE IT! It’s called the Sizzix Die Brush & Foam Set!

Finally, I had tons of fun with the NEW Jewel Drops in Key Lime!  I added a bunch of “dots” all over the background, then set aside to dry.  I LOVE the finished look!  Soooo sparkly!  They go on opaque and dry more clear. You HAVE to try them out sometime soon!

Thanks for popping by – and I just want to wish everyone a very Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas (since this is my last post before Christmas!)

Cheers!

Jess

May Your Day Bloom!

Hi there, Designer Shona here today to share with you my last December reveal card. Today I chose to work with the Rustic Flower Set 816.

So to begin with, I stamped the jug of flowers in Versamark on Kraft cardstock and then I heat embossed with Sienna. The image was colored  with Copics.

This was then die cut using the Spellbinders Style Nouille Decorative Element, which was sponged with Wild Honey Distress ink before removing the die. I then placed a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet in the center of the reddish purple textured cardstock and removed the backing, the die cut image was centered on the adhesive and then Mystical Mauve was applied to the remaining sticky areas.

I used the Nuvo Fine Tip Glue Pen to add some of the Mystical Mauve Glitter to the purple flowers in the jug.

This tied the jug in nicely with the sparkly border.

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark on Kraft cardstock and then heat embossed with Mulberry, one of the detailed Tuscany colors. This was then die cut with Spellbinders Framed Tags One and was attached with Foam Squares, with one behind the hole which was then sprinkled with the Mystical Mauve Glitter.

I made up a flower from using various Prima flower parts, embossing a little Sienna powder to the larger petals. This was attached to the card front with a copper brad in the center.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my share today.

I’ll be back in 2017!

Big hugs,

Shona

Rustic Flowers

Good morning everyone, it’s Belinda here to share a project with you using the Rustic Flower stamp set.

To get my project started I needed to create the background panel.

 To start I adhere a piece of tin foil to a piece of cardstock and distressed it with Stazon ink.  Next I inked the raised side of a embossing folder, placed the cardstock inside foil side up and ran it  through the Big Shot.  The piece was then covered with Golden Sparkle EP and heat set.  This really created a beautiful vintage background for my flower can.

Next I embossed a piece of cardstock with a Anne Griffin Border folder.  Using the Nuvo Large Glue Pen glue was placed on the raised areas and edges.  Let the glue dry slightly and then Nuvo Gilding Flakes were placed on top.  The excess with lightly brushed off.

Small drops of Copper Penny Crystal Drops were on placed the background flower centers, and Pale Gold Crystal Drops on the border strip flowers.

The flower can is from the digi stamp set.  I used the color version resized the image, printed and cut it out using the Cameo Silhouette.  Sparkle was added to the flowers using Nuvo Small Glue pen, Chameleon, Margarita, Bubblegum, Daisy, Orange Crush glitter.  Small drops of Pale Gold Crystal drops were added to the can and a small Pull Ribbon bow was added.

Thanks so much for stopping by hope you all have a wonderful Holiday Season!!

Belinda

Build A Flower

Build A Flower 811

 

Anne here and today I’m showcasing this fun new set called Build A Flower that was revealed this month. There are so many different combinations that can be used – long and tall, short and squat, single flower…. and the list goes on and on 😀.  This would be a really fun stamp set to decorate the side of a scrapbook page too or create a fun frame around a photo.

 

As you can tell, I decided to go long and tall. I began by stamping the flower pot and then masking it so I could stamp the stems. Then I used the smaller blossom stamp to add flowers to the stems. Finally, the leaves were added. I also stamped the flowers and leaves on plain cardstock so I could fussy cut them out and adhere them on top of the ones on the main image. Everything was then colored with my Copic markers.

 

I had originally stamped everything onto white cardstock. Once everything was coming together, I decided that I didn’t want it white, nor did I want to color all that white space with Copics. I created a mask of the entire stamped image by photocopying it on my printer and then fussy cutting that out.

 

I recommend that you do the photocopying before adding the glitter to the base flowers though, otherwise, you might get glitter on your printer glass (ask me how I know this 😜.) Once my mask was ready, I adhered it with some temporary double sided tape and then lightly spritzed the entire area with Memories Mist (Pale Ale). A nice side effect was that it gave my mask a nice sepia look, which could always be used on a future project.

 

Build A Flower 811

 

I added Purple Dust glitter to the veins and out sie edges of my flowers. I also outlined the outside edges of the flowers on the main image with glue and covered them with Purple Dust glitter as well. that way, when I added my offset blossoms, everything would be sparkly. Dimensional glue was added to the centers of the flowers and covered with Evening Glow glitter.

 

The sentiment, which comes with the stamp set was heat embossed with Amethyst embossing powder. The black frame around my image is a die cut from Impression Obsession (All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2). In order to make it into a square, I took one of the frames that fit my sentiment, cut it in the center and adhered the ends together. To make the seams less noticeabBuild A Flower 811le, I heat set the frame with Ebony Spark embossing powder.  This also gave the frame a subtle bit of sparkle.

 

The bee is part of a retired die from Die-Versions (Wee Petites – Buggy). I die cut him from white cardstock and colored him with Copic markers. Glue was added to the inside of his wings and covered with Starfire glitter.

 

The die cuts that border the sides of the focal point are from Tonic Studios and is actually a Christmas die (Christmas Strips – Merry Christmas die set)! I cut off the parts that I wanted, covered them with VersaMark and heat set each of them with Sparkle embossing powder. Although the camera didn’t capture the subtle sparkle of these die cuts, you can definitely see it in person. A bit of Mon Ami Gabby ribbon are the finishing touches.
