Continuation…Card Created using Unity Stamp Company Stamps

So, since there are a decent amount of cards I figured I’d break up the posts just so it isn’t too photo heavy and overwhelming.

Here are a few more cards, I just love these adorable stamp sets from Unity Stamp Company

Hi there! We are finally in the new

Hi there! We are finally in the new place! Which is why I haven’t posted anything for a few days. Still not completely moved in (I have a few big pieces left to bring over, my book cases and china cabinet, and some boxes full of random little odds and ends) but at least we are here and I’ve been very busy unpacking. I still haven’t gotten my crafts set up but luckily I have quite a few cards that I did a while back and haven’t shared yet.

I don’t have the supplies on hand so I can’t write out a full description but I’ll share some photos anyhow.

With Father’s Day coming up I thought I’d share these cards first, I can’t wait to get all of my supplies over to the new place and have a work space again!

SSS Challenge…Take a Picture

Hi all! I have a card I created for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and this week Simon Says…Take a Picture!

And I’m not going to lie, I was so excited! You may not know this about me but I have a slight obsession with cameras (okay, it’s a huge obsession) I have a vintage camera collection that is my pride and joy! :] And I’ve been hoarding some camera related patterned paper for quite some time now (they are just so pretty!)  But, this challenge forced me to use some of it and I’m so happy I did!! :]

I used some grey card stock that I received in one of my monthly card kits as the card base and the patterned paper is from Studio Callico’s Darling Dear collection. I created the tiny polaroid with a 1 inch square punch (I don’t have any square dies or any of those adorable polaroid dies) and my paper trimmer. I then stamped the heart from an adorable Lawn Fawn stamp set that was also apart of a card kit in Hero Arts Red Royal Mid-tone Shadow Ink and die cut the “you” from the SSS You die and stamped “make me smile” from the coordinating stamp set.

I gotta say, I’m very happy with how this turned out, but that’s not a surprise seeing as how it is camera related. :] Thanks for stopping by!!

10 Minute Craft Dash #18

I have been lagging behind on updating my blog with a crap-ton of cards(and yes…it really is a crap-ton of cards to share)

We’ve been busy around here packing up my boyfriend’s things because we’ll be moving into the new place on Monday YAY! I can’t wait! :] But, I figured I’d post my card for the 10 Minute Craft Dash and get that all squared away.

I have to admit, this one was a huge challenge for me, but that’s a good thing! I don’t normally use greens, yellows, or purples (why is that I wonder?….I really don’t know) but I managed to find some card stock on hand that I was able to use, and I’m so happy I did!

I made this card in 9 minutes and 36 seconds, JUST UNDER the radar haha

I used patterned papers from American Crafts & Basic Grey’s Plumeria 6×6 paper pads. Also, I used the largest heart from Unity Stamp Company’s Loads of Love Stamp Set, and Simon Says Stamp’s You stamp set for the sentiment. Originally I had wanted to die cut the heart (not stamp it) but I didn’t have a heart die that was big enough & that’s probably for the best since I just barely made it under the 10 minutes. Anyhow, thanks for stopping by, hopefully I’ll be back soon with a massive upload of new cards! :]

 

His & Hers and just for fun

So I am participating in the His & Hers Online Card Classes which is AMAZING! I have a very difficult time with masculine cards (like a lot of other crafters/card makers apparently) so I decided to make a His & Her birthday card since my Birthday card stash is VERY LOW!!

 

I used the same sketch for both the masculine and feminine card and kept both very true to my original idea.

For the masculine card I used paper from the Basic Grey Oxford 6×6 paper pad and a cute little ticket stub die cut that I got in one of my card kits. I inked all of the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink. I stamped the sentiment “Lotsa Birthday Wishes” from a Studio Calico (I think) stamp set onto the ticket stub in Red Royal Shadow Ink. Popped the sentiment up on some dimensional adhesive and scattered a few metal stars along the card front. I’m very happy with the way this card turned out.

For the feminine version of this card, I used patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye Happy Day 6×6 paper pad and a die cut pink and white talk bubble that I received (and hoarded away) from one of my card kits. I cut up and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from Hero Arts Year Round Sentiments Stamp Set in Tide Pool shadow ink. I also popped the talk bubble/sentiment up on dimensional adhesive and scattered pearls across the card front.

Now, I have on more card to share. This is one I made for my boyfriend (and accidentally ruined) so I remade it because it’s just too darn cute/funny not to remake it. I used a Unity Stamp set for this card, and just a few copic markers and some glossy accents for the glass part of the glasses (it’s hard to tell in the photo but it is so adorable adding that bit of shine!)

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! :]
