If you haven't tried Clearsnap's Design Adhesives, you are missing an awesome product!!!! Here's another card where I show you how easy it is to work with Clearsnap's Design Adhesives and Glitter.

Clearsnap Supplies:
Design Adhesives: Let's Party and Congratulations
Glitter: Clearsnap Honey Glow, Silver Lining, Cotton Candy, Peridot, Sparkling Amethyst
Ink: Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk Ink ; Lettuce Chalk Petal Point Ink
Other Products:
Cardstock: American Crafts
Ribbon: American Crafts, Offray
Stamp: Just for Fun
Charm: Doodlecharms
Paper Tagger: Around the Block

Using a premade card, I added a square of cardstock to fit the card front, covering the pattern.
Next, I placed the Design Adhesives on cream cardstock and proceeded to add one color of Glitter at a time.
After each color, I tapped the card to remove the excess, then returned the excess to it's jar. Be sure to use the Craft Funnel, it is so helpful!

Once I had all the colors to my liking, I poured Silver Lining over the entire piece to catch any areas that I did not already glitter. I then tapped off the excess and placed it back into it's jar.

I corner rounded the edges and matted this piece on green cardstock and added it to the card front.
For the interior of my card, I cut the cardstock slightly smaller so that the outer layer would cover the inner layer, then inked the edges with Lettuce.
I matted this piece with purple cardstock and added it to my card.
I cut apart the Let's Party Design Adhesives and added one piece to the left side of the interior of my card, covering it with Glitter.
I stamped the sentiment in Colorbox Chestnut Roan.

I added a small Let's Party Design Adhesive to the lower left corner of my envelope and added glitter for a little extra pizzazz.

When assembling my card, I added some ribbon and a charm for a little more character.

Thanks for looking. Enjoy.

If you haven't yet tried the Designer Adhesives from Clearsnap, you are missing out on an amazing product! Unlike rub-ons, the Designer Adhesives have adhesive on both sides to allow you to add foils or glitter to your design. You need to gently rub the Designer Adhesives onto your paper of choice, being sure that all part of the adhesive are released from the backing. Then, place the Designer Adhesives shiny side UP on the adhesive and rub. As you rub, the foil adheres to the adhesive, providing a fun design to work with.

I think the butterflies are amazing with the Gold Foil on top.

Post It Notes

I've got some fun new post it notes up on the Scrappin Stuff Blog today. These items are just so quick and easy to create and the large array of sports good in the store make it fun to create these little beauties.


It's Time to Wine!

I got some of the new Donna Salazar Mix'd Media Inx that Clearsnap showed at CHA. This stuff is amazing!!! It's a very smooth ink and comes in a round plastic container and is so easy to use direct to paper so you avoid that harsh line you sometimes get when adding ink.

Check out my card:

I stamped the image with Black Mix'd Media Inx then embossed with Black Embossing Powder. After I die cut my image, I used Honey Mix'd Media Inx around the edges. Love it!!!

I used a touch of Smooch Siren Ink in the wine glass, her bow and her earrings.

Happy Birthday

I've got a wonderful friend celebrating her 40 something birthday so I wanted to create something different. I know she'll appreciate this gift bag and matching card.

The cupcake is from Hello Kitty Cricut cartridge and is cut at 4 3/4" for the card and 6" for the bag. The stamps are from the Stamps of Life. I used SEI pattern paper, Bazzill cardstock, and SEI pattern paper again to create my base layers. This was added to the gift bag with foam adhesives.

The card was created to match the gift bag and has been assembled the same. The cupcake holder was run through my Cuttlebug for some dimension.

I used Clearsnap Archival Black Ink for the sentiments, then used Siren Smooch Ink on the cherry onto which I added some Fairy Dust Glitter for a little sparkle!!



Isn't this just a darling card? I could see using it for an anniversary or even for a best friend!!

I used Ancient Page Saffron Ink with the Jumbo Rollagraph and Doodle Stamp Wheel, running the Wheel across my cardstock until it was covered.

Then I decided to use this lovely pattern paper I created with my Cricut Expression - Kate's ABCs - and cut out the adorable shoes at 2 1/2".

I cut several layers of this pattern paper, inked the layers with Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink and added them to the base shoe with foam adhesive. The base shoe was cut from brown cardstock. I also stamped my sentiment on this pattern paper with Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink and matted with brown cardstock.

I took some yellow cardstock and embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and inked the edges with Chestnut Roan before adhering it the card base. I then added all elements to the card front.

Ink: Ancient Page Saffron Archival Ink , Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink
Wheel: Jumbo Rollagraph Handle ; Jumbo Doodle Rollagraph

Fairy Wishes

I've got a new card up on the Papertemptress blog today. Gosh, I do love the papers in the store.

I used Grape Popsicle Glossy for the base of my card. It's a gorgeous color and stands up well as a card base. I cut the card base from my Cricut Expression using the Wild Card cartridge at 5 1/4", then I cut the layers from White Pearl Linen which has a beautiful iridescent shine to it. I embossed the outer ring for a little added dimension and it looks beautiful.

I stamped my Justrite image on Heavenly White Cardstock and used my Copic markers. I then sewed and faux sewed my layers together, then added the top layer with foam dots. I love how this paper can withstand anything I want to do to it.

As a finishing touch, I added a piece of black and silver ribbon.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to check out the blog for more wonderful creations.



Today's blogpost at Justimagine Crafts showcases this card.

Do you realize that you can combine any number of items from the store to create an amazing look for your cards and layouts? For this Friends card, I used the Circle Cutter, Punch #920 and the Butterfly die.

I started by cutting a 5" circle from white cardstock. Then I cut a 3" circle from the interior of that circle and set it aside. I then used Punch #920 inside the 5" circle and punched all around. This created a star shape inside the card. After inking the edges, I matted this piece on a 5" piece of green cardstock. I placed the smaller circle inside then mounted this to the card front. I die cut 2 butterflies using the butterfly die and embossed the top one. I placed the butterflies to the upper right of the circle and added a stamped sentiment to the lower left of the circle using foam dots.

Some bling was added along the butterfly and the interior circle.

Don't be afraid to mix and match your punches and dies to see what different looks you can create.

Punches: Kreaxions

You are Never.....Card

It's mid month and that means it's time for another Clearsnap Color Challenge. This week we were asked to use Wicked Black, Lime Pastel and Frost White. Enter here for a chance to win some great prizes.

This was a fun card to make:
I used the Cuttlebug Script Embossing Folder which I inked with Frost White Ink before inserting my black cardstock. This provided a reverse embossed feature.

I added Top Boss Clear Embossing Powder over the entire embossed piece. Since the Frost White Ink stays wet longer than archival ink, I had plenty of time to emboss and heat set.

Using a Hero Arts stamp, I inked it with Lime Pastel Ink then stamped it on green cardstock. This produced a nice tone on tone effect.

After embossing with Top Boss Clear Embossing Powder, I ran Frost White Ink across the image, then wiped away some of the ink. The embossing powder acted as a resist and subtle sections of White Ink remained behind.

I then assembled my card and added brads in some of the flower centers. A Stampin Up stamp was used as the sentiment in the lower right. This was stamped with Wicked Black Archival Ink, then embossed with Top Boss Clear Embossing Powder.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to enter the Challenge.

I used Punch # 909 on the exterior and interior of my card and added a strip of cardstock under it to help it stand out. Then I added lots of bling.

And the interior

Doesn't this punch make a perfect border for the interior of the card? I sewed it in place for some added dimension.

For a Wonderful Friend

I love this image by FlowerSoft. I've colored her dress in a number of different colors and she looks different every time I color her based upon the papers I used.

After coloring my image on Neenah Solar White , I knew I wanted to use it as my focal image, so I cut a frame with the Spellbinders dies on some Blue Leather . It die cut and embossed beautifully. I used Blue Basis cardstock as my base, and added a strip of White Pearl Linen under the pattern paper.

I added foam adhesive to the frame then tied a piece of black and silver ribbon to the bottom edge.

I used my left over supplies to finish the interior of the card and stamped my sentiment in Clearsnap ink using a Justrite Stamp.

Once I was done, I added some pearls to the frame and the flowers.

I Pledge....

I've had this stamp in my stash for quite awhile, but unfortunately I don't know who manufactured it!!! Since we are heading into the 4th of July weekend, I thought it would be an appropriate card to post.

Once my card was together, I added dots around the card using Smooch Illuminate and Siren Inks. The tip of the brush makes it easy to add dots of color anywhere.
