Who You Are

Hi everyone, I have another Fairy Stamper project to share.  Since we've been showing off the new release, I thought I'd share Fifi.

Fifi is one of the newest fairies and she is blowing bubbles while leaning against the largest FH Morel.  Also included with Fifi are some tiny dandelions so I added some of them floating in the wind.  I added some color to her wings so they stand out against the backdrop. 

The hillside was created for her to sit on from torn scraps of paper, then I added different colors of FH Flutter Dust.  Along the right I added some FH Frilly Branches and finished the card with the FH Who Your Are stamp.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sweet Summer Card

 Hi everyone, I'm on the Dies R Us blog today. 

This Tutti Designs Die just screams fun, doesn't it?  I chose to die cut it from 3 colors of cardstock.  Using the orange layer as the base, I cut apart the other colors so I could reassemble the die with the correct colors in place.  Realizing I needed to use yellow cardstock, I die cut that piece last.

Create a card from kraft cardstock and add a panel of blue on top.   Using the largest of the stitched circle dies, I die cut a black cardstock circle and adhered it to the card.  Then, I placee the reassembled die cut on the card.

Please stop by the Dies R Us Store for all the supplies I've used today.

Thanks for stopping by.



Alicorn Specialness with TLC Designs

 Hi everyone, I've got a sweet birthday card to share using some fun dies from TLC Designs.

This Alicorn Happiness stamp set is such a delight.  I've paired one of the images with the Happy Dragonfly Circle and the Soft Blush Digital Paper Pack.  Since the die set has 2 different sized circles, I could die cut the unicorn and mat her with a different colored circle.

I created a card from red cardstock and added the digital sheet, then wrapped ribbon around the card before adding the image.  The phrase was then added at the bottom. 

 Finally, I added dots of glitter glue to the flower centers.

Thanks for stopping by.


Clear Scraps Fall Decor

Hi everyone, I'm on the Clear Scraps blog sharing one of the new products available.  This new collection is called Frameables - which are changeable frames and embellishments.

I'm working with the a fall themed design.  I painted the large base and the frame with brown paint.  Rinea Marigold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper was adhered to the smaller base.

For contrast, I adhered Rinea Marigold Starstruck and Rinea Mocha Starstruck to the pumpkin, then used the sanding tool to sand the edges.  FALL was inked with brown ink and also lightly sanded.

All the elements fit into the slots and you can arrange them as you like.

Place a photo in the frame.  If you leave one of the edges free, you can easily replace the photo as the season progresses.

Be sure to stop by the store to see all the designs that are available.

Thanks for stopping by.



Sympathy Card

Hi everyone, I have a sympathy card to share.

Using Blank Page Muse Stamps, I stamped and colored the flowers with Copic Markers. Then I lightly stamped a bubble wrap stamp around the flowers with pink ink.

Die cut the image with TLC Designs See You in The Center Dies and die cut a larger frame.

Add the stamped image to a card and place a sentiment in the upper corner.

An evening flight

  Hi everyone, I have another Fairy Stamper project to share.  

Have you seen the Fairy Hugs Wishing Well?  It's such an amazing stamp - it's so detailed.

I used the Fairy Scapes Slimline Background - Grayscale Sky - as I wanted to create a night scene, and it was perfect.  I stamped the Wishing Well, Fairy Hugs Flying Owls and Fairy Hugs Hanging Vines in black ink.

The stamped panel was die cut with Tutti Designs Slimline Dotted Rectangles and matted on black cardstock.   The card was also created from black cardstock .

What do you think?

Happy Father's Day with Rinea Foiled Papers

Hi everyone, I'm on the Rinea blog with a set of slim line cards for Fathers Day, but they would also work for birthday cards.

Using Tutti Designs Slimline Stars Background die, I die cut  Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.

 I also die cut Arctic/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.  The foils cut beautifully.

I saved all the die cut hearts because I wanted to mix the designs.

I adhered each die cut panel to Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.  Then I added different colored stars to each panel.

The panels were then added to cards.

Happy Father's Day was stamped on white cardstock and die cut.  It was then matted with a die cut  Ebony/Gold Foiled Paper panel.

A different die was used for the sentiment on the second card.

What dad wouldn't love getting one of these cards for Father's Day?

Thanks for stopping by.



Big Hugs with TLC Designs

 Hi everyone, sending Big Hugs today with this fun stamp set from TLC Designs.

Using the largest die from the Apple a Day Die, I created a card.  Since I wanted the full effect, I folded cardstock and die cut off the edge to keep the card in tact.  Then I die cut another layer and adhered on top for the full die effect.

After stamping and coloring the images from the Troll Cricket Fun stamp set, I colored them with colored pencils and gamsol, I die cut the panel with the next sized down die.

Wanting the kids to be running in the grass, I die cut grass and mushroom layers from the Land and Seas Dies.  Once layered I used the same die to cut the grass again so it fit perfectly on the card.

I also die cut different colored mushroom toppers.  How cute is that?
What a fun card to create!  After inking with brown ink, the panel was added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Thanks for stopping by.



Clear Scraps Acrylic Phone Stand

Hi everyone, I'm on the Clear Scraps blog with some amazing  products.

I've used the Acrylic Phone Stand, opting to decorate it with potted flower arrangement created with a Tutti Designs Die and Rinea Foiled Papers.

I die cut the potted flower arrangement from 3 different colors of Rinea Foiled Papers - Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper for the flower pot; Marigold/Glossy Foiled Paper for the flowers and Jade Starstruck for the leaves.

Now the fun part was cutting apart the potted flowers and reassembling in the appropriate colors.

Using a clear adhesive, I adhered the potted flowers to the acrylic base.

It's a perfect size for my phone, and even looks pretty sitting on the counter.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Father's Day Cards

Hi everyone, it's a new month and the challenge on the Scor-Pal blog is to create anything you want, just be sure it includes more than one score.

I've used a variety of colors of Rinea Foiled Papers; but you can also use double sided cardstock for a different effect.

Cut paper to 6" x11".
With the short edge at the top, score at 1 1/2" and 4 1/2".
Rotate and score at 1", 2" and 6 1/2".\
Create the triangular shapes by scoring from the 6 1/2" line to the vertical lines (this creates the shirt sleeves).

Fold along the long edges.
Fold along 1" and 2" scored line.
Fold along the 6 1/2" scored line and fold upward to create the shirt.
Score well, then unfold the panel and fold along the triangular lines to create the sleeves.
Again, score well.

To create the collar, cut approximately 3/4" along the 2"  score line.
Take the top edge and fold down on an angle so the points meet in the center.

Use the Scor-Pal Pocket Pen Pals die to create the interior panel onto which you can stamp a sentiment.  Place inside each shirt with Scor-Tape.

Create a tie and pocket for each shirt. Adhere to the shirts.  
Fold upward and slip the panel under the edges of the collar.
This holds the card together.

Would love to see what you create this month.  Please share.

Dancing Fairies Interactive Card

Hi everyone, I have another Fairy Stamper project to share.  

I used the TLC See You in the Center Interactive Die to create my card.

The package comes with complete directions on the back.  

Take your time, as the first card can be a little intimidating.  Once you've created one ore two cards, the next ones gets easier.

Color the bottom half of the card with green ink and the top half with blue ink.  Stamp the Fairy Hugs Hanging Vines in VersaFine Clair Morning Mist Ink around the top of the card.

Stamp the Fairy Hugs Mini Dancing Mushrooms repeatedly along the bottom edge with VersaFine Clair Shady Lane Ink.

Add a few Fairy Hugs Pine Branches above the mushrooms using VersaFine Clair Pinecone Ink.

Add the mini tabs to the card with brads being sure they line up with the large tab on the back.

Fold black cardstock and place the base die over the fold to keep the card intact.  Die cut another black panel to complete the full effect of the card design and add to the card base.

Add the stamped panel to the card with foam adhesives being sure to leave room for the tab to move.  Add stickles randomly around the card. 
Stamp Fairy Hugs Lila and Robin in different colors.  Fussy cut them.  Line them up so they interact with each other as the tab is moved from side to side.

Add the fairies to the little tabs with dimensional adhesives.
