Zesty Lemon Die & Pink Fresh Studio Hot Foil Sentiment

I had cut a few extra pieces from my first Zesty Lemon card, so I thought I would create this card based on a card Chari Moss created for Lawn Fawn’s release of the set recently.

I didn’t have the dies to create the stripes so I used what I had in my stash. The Pink Fresh sentiment in gold hot foiled on white card stock gave it a classic look that could be given to anyone (even our favourite guy). Using the same buttercup yellow glitter paper I created just the slightest drop shadow for the hot fouled sentiment that gave it that extra subtle pop.

Lawn Fawn Zesty Lemon

Well hello Sunshine!! Summer is here and I just could not wait to dig into the Lawn Fawn Zesty Lemon die set!

So easy to use, just a two shades of card stock for each fruit, adding a bit of super easy inking with daubers gives each piece so much more dimension and fun. And of course I had to add glitter!! So a hint of buttercup yellow glitter paper behind Lawn fawn’s new Gotta Have Gingham pattern paper was just what the card needed to add that final touch.

Mama Elephant Me And My Dinosaur with Scenescapes Builder Slimline Pop Up Box Card

Mama Elephant knocks it out of the park again and again – each new release they drop leaves me excited, and broke 😛

My latest haul included Me and My Dinosaur stamp & die set, along with this Slimline Scenescapes builder die set. This was my first go at using the Scenescapes Builder set, and it didn’t quite turn out as saw it in my head. Does that ever happen to you too?
Once I had it all assembled, I realized it needed a bit more something for the background, but the Dinosaur’s made it super cute so I still kept it instead of disassembling it and starting from scratch.

Assembly of the Slimline Scenescape Builder is actually pretty easy – MaMa Elephant has a great video showing the assembly of the card base, and having assembled pop-up-box cards before, it was actually pretty easy.

I am going to have another try at making a project with this Scenescape builder die set again soon – stay tuned!

Sizzix Cupcake Card Die ~ Pink & Sparkly!

I have had this Sizzix cupcake for for a while now, and I had a stroke of inspiration when I saw Doodlebug’s Hey Cupcake enamel sprinkles in my local craft supply store. I knew I had to pull out this die set to make a card with these cute sprinkles!

The construction of the cupcake was super easy – I used 110lb card-stock for the base, cut just above the score line to allow a top folding card base.

Using foam tape under the cupcake base and ‘icing’ layers gave it just the right pop of dimension; and a C00 Coptic marker to lightly add in some shading to create more dimension in the icing.

A white gel pen & crystal effects added a perfect gloss on the cherry – glued flat to the icing layer.

Sweet As A Peach

I just can’t get enough of this Sweet As A Peach stamp set!!! CASED from a pin on Pinterest, I modified the design to make it my own.

Using sponge daybeds to add that hint of secondary colours on the flowers, peach and leaves is such an easy way to add dimension to the stamped images.

Sweet As A Peach with Stampin Up

Summer is in full swing, and Stampin Up’s Sweet As A Peach collection is the perfect suite to kick it off!

Using the Sweet As A Peachg 12×12 Designer Series Paper (DSP) along with the photopolymer stamps and coordinating dies, I used sponge daubers to ink the peaches (stamped in pale papaya) and inked for dimension with calypso coral. Pear pizazz was used to stamp the leaves, and the lightest yellow I had to create the flowers.

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  🙂

LawnFawnatics Inaugural  Challenge: Happy Birthday

Everyone who knows me, knows my absolute favorite stamp company is, and has been for many many years: Lawn Fawn.  When I saw that Lawn Fawn had created a new challenge blog, called Lawn Fawnatics, I knew I had to play along! Their first challenge theme is: Birthday.  Since it coincided with their 7 year birthday it was a perfect match.

Here is my card I made – all supplies I used can be found at the end of post.

Karma Cards: Extended Hands Food Bank Valentine’s Edition

When I first started Karma Cards, I wanted to try and make every effort to try and do as much as I could.  The last year I wasn’t able to to as much charitable work as I hoped to, so this year I made it a resolution to schedule more charity card workshops.

I had done a Karma Cards class over the Christmas holidays, and it was a great success! My group donated almost 20 pounds of food for the Extended Hands food bank, and I wanted to make sure that I kept that initiative going after the holidays. I hosted another Karma Cards card making charity workshop this past weekend, and was able to collect both food and monetary donation for the Extended Hands Food Bank; a non-profit food bank in my area.  For my workshops, I donate all the materials and time to prepare, and I ask that attendee’s bring, in lieu of a class fee, either 6 non-perishable food items (like high protein items, baby formula or diapers) or a cash donation, 100% of which goes to the food bank, of $12 per person.  We all made 3 cards each, and I was able to collect a sizable box of food for donation to the food bank.
