Two New Cards

Hello all, so I have two new cards to share with you today. Let’s jump right into it.

Blue Hello

Blue Happy Birthday To You

I was on a kick with the Wendy Vecchi embossing paste and stencils. I just couldn’t get enough. Anywho, I thought I’d share these cards. I love the way both of them turned out.

On a very different note, I’ve been sick but was fortunate enough to have a phone interview today that must have went pretty well since I have a face to face interview next Tuesday. I’m super nervous and am really hoping to get this job…so wish me luck!

A few more cards

I messed up and don’t like the edit option on wordpress…(or I just can’t figure it out :P) so this is a continuation of my previous post…

Thinking of You & Sympathy

 

 

 

 

This Thinking of you card is very similar to one I posted earlier today, however this one does not have any dimension. I used patterned paper from Studio Calico’s Snippets 6×6 paper pad and stamped the houndstooth/tweed background at an angle masking off the top portion of the card. I used Hero Arts Everyday Sayings stamp set to stamp the sentiment “Thinking of you”

For this sympathy card I wanted to keep it fairly gender neutral. Even though there are flowers on the card I think you could give this to a male or female or a couple since the flowers are cut from plain white card stock. I used the same Hero Arts Everyday Sayings stamp set with the sentiment “Sorry for your loss” I cut two strips of paper from My Mind’s Eye Sunshine 6×6 paper pad that reads as a solid but has a very subtle lattice pattern to it. The bottom portion of the card is embossed with an embossing folder (forgive me…I work in chaos and can’t seem to find it at the moment) and the flowers are from Memory Box Prim Poppy & a Memory Box & Simon Says Stamp Fresh Daisies die cuts.

Play Date Cafe

Hi all! I decided to make a card for The Play Date Cafe color splash. This is my first time playing along and I had so much fun making this card! :]

I masked off the main panel of the card at an angle and used the Flower Medley background stamp by Hero Arts & Basic Grey. I then colored in a few of the flowers using copic markers to give them a nice pop of color. I then used a black marker and my T square ruler to draw a thick black border along the edge and stamped “Always thinking of you” at an angle on the open top portion of the card (I can’t remember the name of the stamp set but it was one I received in a SSS Card Kit I believe.) I adhered some black card stock to the left hand side of the card base and put the stamped/colored image on dimensional adhesive. I’m very happy with the way this card turned out. And I think I will probably end up making some more cards fairly similar to this one in the future. Thanks for stopping by! :]

Massive Mother’s Day Post

Hey there! It’s been a few days…I’ve been busy packing up my apartment and staying at my boyfriend’s house, which soon I will be doing for an entire month before we move into the new place.

I made a few Mother’s Day cards earlier this week but haven’t had the time to post them yet. So I figured I would share them with you now. You’ll have to forgive me, I may not be able to list all of the supplies since I’m not home & in my craft room at the moment, but I will do my best from memory (and thank goodness for google!)

 

 

So, a lady my boyfriend works with saw a few photos of some cards I made for my Mom and Grammy for Mother’s Day and she told him to let me know that she wanted to buy a few cards from me for Mother’s day. I’ve met her a few times and I know she has two sons so I thought this would be a really cute card for them to give to their Grandmother. I did some very simple coloring with copic markers using the Lawn Fawn Love ‘n Breakfast stamp set and the patterned paper is from Basic Grey Paper Cottage 6×6 paper pad. I also used the SSS Small Folded Banners die. On the inside of the card it reads ‘Happy Mother’s Day’

She also purchased two other cards from me, one to give to her mother and one to give to her boyfriend’s mother. This card, I used a background stamp that I believe is from Hero Arts and clear heat embossed it on some white card stock. I then used distress inks to blend the background with (I think) Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn. When I was happy with the way it looked I I set it aside and used some scrap white card stock I had lying around to once again blend using the same colors and cut out some hearts using the SSS Mini Hearts Set die. I cut a strip of vellum and white heat embossed the sentiment ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ from (I think) a Hero Art’s stamp set. (I can’t remember) I then used some clear dimensional adhesive for the little hearts & some glossy accents

Image

 

 

The 3rd card she purchased was this sweet little daisy card. I just hand blended the background with some distress ink (I’m pretty sure the colors I used were spun sugar, picked raspberry & spiced marmalade) I used a sticker I’ve had in my stash for AGES, and white heat embossed the same Happy Mother’s Day sentiment as all of the other cards.

Now this card my own Mother bought (I swear I told her I’d just give it to her lol) for my Grammy. I just love this card. The colors are so beautiful and match so well together. All the paper is from the same 6×6 paper pad but I don’t know the name of it at the moment. I love how the ‘o’ in mom is made up of flowers that also match the paper (coincidentally) I used the ‘You’ die and stamp set from SSS (I don’t know the true name, sorry!)

This card, I made for my Grammy…& I can’t wait for her to get it in the mail. I know she’ll love it. I used distress inks to blend the background and used a sticker from a sheet I’ve had for a while now. I can’t get enough of that beautiful cherry blossom branch! I white heat embossed the same Mother’s Day Sentiment and scattered a few pearls along the card to tie in the pearls that are on some of the flowers.

This is the card I made for my own Mom. It reminds me of a polaroid. I clear heat embossed the background (again I’m not sure what the background stamp is but I believe it is from Hero Arts) and blended with distress inks (I think the colors I used were picked raspberry and peacock feathers) I used the same Happy Mother’s day sentiment as the other cards, but this time I used Hero Arts Tide Pool or it may have been Soft Pool shadow ink, definitely one of those two! 😛

So, I have those posted but I think I’ll take a break for now and leave it at that. I have some more cards to share but I’ll be back later to update again. Hope everyone had a nice weekend! ❤

 

 

SSS Challenge 1

Hey there! Today I decided to attempt my first Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

This week is April showers and/or Spring flowers showcasing Hero Arts.

I decided to go with flowers because I’ve just been loving the new-to-me American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapalitan 6×6 paper pad that I was lucky enough to find on sale a few weeks ago at Target. I used the sentiment ‘thinking of you’ from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings stamp set and white heat embossed it on kraft card stock. All patterned paper is from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapalitan 6×6 paper pad that I mentioned before. To make the paper bow I used the My Favorite Things Die-namics Dainty Bow die and for the scalloped border I used the Fiskars Scalloped Edge Border Punch

I haven’t quite had time yet to sit down and look into learning Inlinkz so I can add all of my supplies yet but once I am able to do that I will update this post (if I can figure out how)

Anyways, thanks for stopping by! I had a blast making this card! :]
