Dream Lighthouse Card

Hi everyone, I'm on the Clear Scraps using the 6" Lighthouse Stencil.

Placing the stencil on a white panel, I inked it with assorted colors in keeping with the lighthouse look.

Taking off the stencil, you can see what you've missed, realign the stencil and add additional colors.

I inked around the panel with light blue ink before matting it with black cardstock.  

I matted the panel on a blue card with foam adhesives for dimension.  Dream was die cut from black cardstock and added to the card.

Courage Tag Card

Hi everyone, I'm on the Blank Page Muse blog  with a courageous card.

Blank Page Muse Stamps: CourageMountain and Beaches Stamp Set
Blank Page Muse Stencil: Blocks Pattern
Distress Oxide Inks

I began by starting with a tag and stamped the mountain twice, one slightly above the other.

Next, I added color with Distress Oxide Ink in Faded Jeans above the mountains and Distress Oxide Ink in Ground Espresso.

Next, I used the Blocks Stencil with Ground Espresso Ink on blue cardstock.

Love the effect it creates on the paper.

Courage was stamped on a scrap of white cardstock and matted with kraft cardstock.
Then it was added to the tag.
The tag was added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Thank you cards with Tutti Designs

Hi everyone, I'm on the Dies R Us blog with some sweet slim line cards.

I often have left overs from various projects and these particular pieces were perfect to use as slim line cards.  I inked each scrap with Distress Oxide Ink in Ground Espresso.

Adhering the inked pieces to cardstock, I used Tutti Designs Slimline Stitched Rectangle Die to die cut the panel.

I used additional scraps to create another card, but this time I placed them on an angle before die cutting the panel.

The panels were added  to black cards.

 I die cut smaller layers for the center of each card, then added my Thank you phrase.  To fill in some of the white space, I fussy cut flowers, lightly inked them then added to the card. 

What do you do with your left overs? 

Stop by the Dies R Us Store to see all the amazing dies that are available.

Thanks for stopping by.


Kite Flying with Tiana

Hi everyone, it's Thursday and my day to share another Fairy Stamper project. 

I stamped Fairy Hugs Tiana on a die cut white panel using VersaFine Clair Purple Delight.  Placing a mask on Tiana, I stamped the largest of the Fairy Hugs Log using VersaFine Clair Acorn Ink

Next, ink the edges with VersaFine Clair Ink in Twilight.  Using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Kit Dies, die cut Rinea Foiled Papers in Cobalt/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.  Place the kite tail in Tiana's hands.

Mat the panel with brown cardstock and add to a kraft card.  Assemble the kite and add to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.  Add a little extra color to the log with Copic Markers.

Hi Apple Card with TLC Designs

Hi everyone, I've got a quick and easy set of cards to share using some fun dies from TLC Designs.

I used the Apple A Day Die which consists of 14 dies that can be used in so many different ways.  Using the apple base, place it on cardstock along the fold.  The die has a little lip that serves to create the card.

I taped the die to the cardstock then ran it through my die cut machine.

And voila!  A perfect apple shaped card base has been created!!

Use the dotted insert die to die cut cardstock for the face of the card as well as the interior and adhere.

Use the included dies to add flowers, leaves, the bumble bees, and then add Hi to the card.

Sweet, isn't it?

Thanks for stopping by.



New Baby Card

Hi everyone, I'm on the Clear Scraps blog with a new baby card using the Stroller Chipboard Embellishment.

Remove the stroller from it's frame and ink it with distress inks.

I realized I wanted a card for a new baby girl, so I reinked the stroller carriage with pink ink, then embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I created a 5 1/2" square card from pink cardstock, then cut baby paper slightly smaller.

Die cutting a large circle, I placed it on the card.

Die cutting a slightly smaller circle, I adhered the stroller to the circle, then placed it on the card using foam adhesives for dimension.

I stamped the phrase on another smaller circle and added it to the card with foam adhesives.  Some  Robin's Nest dew drops were added about the stroller.
