Crazy Cat Lady Card with Photoplay Paper Whiskers Collection

Photoplay Paper does it again with this super fun & whimsical Whisker paper collection!! I have a girlfriend who loves cats just as much as I do, so I knew I had to make her this card for her!!

I created a few super basic layers, then matted the trimmed sentiment panel with Tattered Lace torn edge rectangles dies.  This card took literally less than 15 minutes, but it sure made her day when it arrived in the post.  🙂

PhotoPlay Paper Man Card Paper Collection Masculine Card

Wow does time fly!! It’s been a while since I posted, but I have been keeping up on Facebook and Instagram!

A super quick and easy masculine card, this Photoplay “Man Card” paper collection was perfect! I used gold foil to mat my layers on top of a woodgrain stamped cardstock base.  Gold metal dots finished off the card nicely and tied all the layers together.

I used the scraps to make the coordinating envelope – having a custom made coordinating envelope really adds that extra touch of personalization  🙂

Graphic 45 Guilded Lily Easy Birthday Card

I have been really in to the shabby chic, ‘prettier’ cards lately. As you know, generally my style is more on the cutesy side, but I have been making an effort to diversify my skills and I have been trying out papers and collections that I have really loved.
This Gilded Lily collection from Graphic 45 was no exception. I had the opportunity to create a gorgeous album with this collection at the CHA summer show in Chicago this past summer and I really loved how versatile the paper and chipboards are!

I needed to make a birthday card for a co-worker and I knew she would appreciate something pretty – so I pulled out my Graphic 45 and leafed through the stack and decided on the two papers from the collection.

Kaisercraft Fairy Dust Card Set Collection

I recently attended a class at my local craft store. I very rarely attend classes anymore, but I knew I just had to go when I saw that the new Kaisercraft Fairy dust collection was featured for this class. The talented Denise designed 4 gorgeous card for us, and when the class was over, we were left with scraps of paper to take home. I went home and immediately sat down and created 3 more 4bar notecards with the scraps! The paper in this Fairydust collection is just gorgeous, and is really, really easy to use. One of my challenges in crafting is using more patterned paper – and this collection has really gotten my creative juices flowing!

I ordered 2 more full pads of the paper and the coordinating Collectables ephemera and have been going to town creating!

The lavender and seafoam green colors are so versatile and brightens up the winter blahs! Here are the cards I created – I would be happy to share the measurements with you, just leave a comment for which card ❤

There is a list of the supplies I used listed below for you to check out to see if any of these would make a nice addition to your craft stash.  One thing that is great about this paper collection, is it’s 6.5″ square, a half inch bigger than a standard 6×6 stack! That means more paper to use & work with 😀 I can tell you I love this paper so much I bought two 6.5″ stacks!

Bird Crazy with Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Pens

When I first saw Tim Holtz Crazy Birds, I knew they would be pretty much perfect for anything watercolor. So, when I first got my Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush pens I thought I would have a go at coloring those awesome crazy birds.
My first attempt stunk. Like really not good. So I put them aside a little frustrated at having investing in them and stinking at it, until recently when I visited my local craft store I was shown how much of a difference it makes to use proper watercolor paper (Thanks Natalie)!  This is the Strathmore cold press watercolor paper and it really makes a huge difference in the performance of the pens when watercoloring! If you ever find that you are not getting great results from your pens, try investing in some good quality watercolor paper, Strathmore cold press can be inexpensive with a coupon from Michaels, Hobby Lobby or Joann’s, but the Tim Holtz watercolor paper is by far the best choice for card makers: it has the best smooth finish and is the lightest weight (thin) but still gives great watercolor performance.

Share Handmade Kindness Week 2: Scented Cupcake Earrings & Elizabeth Craft Vinyl Peel Off Glitter Stickers Card

Last week I participated in the Share Handmade Kindness challenge hosted by Jennifer McGuire Ink.  The first week was to create something handmade for a friend or family member.  This week is the second week for the challenge, this week we are to share a handmade project with someone who works in the community.  I just recently discovered these ‘peel-off’ stickers from Elizabeth Crafts.  I knew that they would work perfectly with the Mama Elephant sentiment from Carnival Cupcake Toppers for a card to go with the scented cupcake earrings I made for my doctor that worked with me for 4 years through my recovery of a car accident.  I just recently moved away and never got a chance to give her something, so I knew that my little cupcake earrings would be perfect pairing with this card!

I will be doing a video on how to create the card soon so stay up to date by subscribing to my YouTube channel

Share Handmade Kindness Challenge #1 ~ Lawn Fawn Making Frosty Friends No Bulk Shaker Card

Hi Everyone,

I normally don’t get into many challenges, but this one had me at kindness…  Jennifer McGuire is hosting a ‘Share Handmade Kindness‘ challenge.  For the whole month of November there will be challenges to share the art of creating with someone – each week will be different.  This first week, will be share something with a friend or family member.  Jennifer wanted to do something to share kindness, and has teamed up with Hero Arts creating two exclusive stamps for a charity with a cause I really believe in: anti-bullying. What I love even more is that a significant portion (25%) of the proceeds will be going to the charity!

You can get both the photopolymer set on the left, and the single wood mount stamp from Simon Says Stamp or Hero Arts. I got mine today 💕

My card was made for my friend Carmen, who is gentle, kind, understanding and always patient with me even on my worst days.  She is a great friend and I really wanted to let her know that with this card ❤

Carmen lives in a different province than I do, so I wanted to make a card that I knew would survive mailing.  My new We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool just arrived the night before I made this.  I ordered it explicitly for the use of making no-bulk shaker cards and confetti pockets , so I couldn’t wait to try it out!

To make the window, I die cut the rectangle using Lawn Fawn’s large stitched rectangle dies.  Then, using an Avery Elle stamp storage pocket, I fastened the die to the pocket with washi tape, and ran the fuse tool over three of the four sides along the inside of the die – using it as a guide.  Leaving the top open, I filled it with iridescent confetti large glitter and added a few snowflake sequins,then fused the final top side of the inner part of the die.  (You can see an example of how this is done in one of Jennifer’s YouTube videos.)

The snowmen buddies were stamped in memento tuxedo black and die cut with the coordinating dies. Using my Spectrum Noir markers, the scarf was colored using DR1, DR6, DR7; the earmuffs were LV3 & LV2 with a light touch of the colorless blender to blend a little more.  OR1 & OR2 were used on the carrot noses, and IB1 was run along the outline of the snowmen to make them look icy cold 🙂

Because the stamp pocket is plastic / acetate, I knew only Stayzon white would work – I stamped the sentiment, then realized that it needed a little something more, so added a few stamped snowflakes for added interest.

So that I had somehwere to write a note, I added a 4 x5.25″ top folding note card inside.  The white sentiment got kind of lost when I did that, so I blended some Broken China distress ink fading to white along the top of the inner note card to highlight the sentiment when the card was closed.

This is entry for the #sharehandmadekindness initative.  I love Jennifer’s videos, she is a beautiful artist, and an even lovelier person.  This challenge is something that really means a lot to me, and I hope you will join me, Jennifer and thousands of other crafters & artists in turning our love of creating into the kindness of giving!
