BUTTERFLIES AND A LITTLE PIGGY

Good morning!  I just had to combine this cute little piggy with a butterfly on this card.  It looks like the little piggy is showing off a flower to that pretty butterfly.

SUO Challenges has butterflies and/or dragonflies on their mind and posted this challenge to play along with.  So I pulled out Butterfly Basics(138816CM – 138813WM) and added This Little Piggy.

I used out new Glossy cardstock to this card so I could do a little watercolouring.  But, I changed my mind and used a stamping sponge to add the Pool Party ink instead.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

BEAR AT A BABY SHOWER

Hi, i’m excited to be hosting a baby shower for a friend who loves to stamp this weekend.  We’re going to be doing some stamping of all things baby and creating sweet projects with the Baby Bear stamp set.

Our expectant mother can turn this card into a thank you card and we’ll be creating a gift tag and a 6″ x 6″ scrapbook page for the baby album.  I am going to make sure that each attendee has her own layout to follow so each item will be unique and different.

It should be a happy and fun time and Amber will go home with some scrapbook pages all ready for pictures when her baby bundle arrives!

If you would like to re-create this card yourself, here’s the list of products that I used.

SUNSHINE AND A SUNFLOWER

The skies have been pretty clear and the sun has been shining brightly over the past few days.  The perfect weather for sunflowers to bloom.

Today’s card has just one bright sunflower from the Autumn Harvest stamp set and a fun technique too!  This stamp set will be available for you to purchase on September 1, 2017 from the Holiday Catalogue.

I used the sketch layout from CAS(E) this sketch as my starting point and just went from there.

That faux brick wall behind the sunflower was made using our new Embossing Paste and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  After I had applied the paste, I set the card aside to dry for a while while I stamped and fussy-cut out the sunflower and leaf.  They looked a little lonely on the card so adding the stem piece from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits was the perfect way to go.

Here’s the sketch just in case you’d like to give this layout a try yourself.

CIRCLE OF FLOWERS WITH THE COLORFUL SEASONS BUNDLE

Today’s card features some lovely flowers from the Colorful Seasons Bundle with a touch of Naturally Eclectic designer series paper.

I’m using The Paper Players colour challenge for this and had to use Bermuda Bay (card base), Calypso Coral (flowers) and Lemon Lime Twist (designer paper).  The Naturally Eclectic designer paper is the perfect choice as there are many great designs to use for any project!

After cutting out the circle, I stamped two stems in Crumb cake ink and then stamped each flower design separately onto a piece of scrap whisper white cardstock.  The Colorful Seasons bundle has all of the dies needed to cut these pretties out.  Notice the leaves?  They were cut out with the New and coming to you soon Leaf Punch from the Holiday catalogue.  I added the “veins” in the leaves with the thin end of the Pear Pizzazz Marker.

CATS IN VIEW

Hi and happy Monday to you!  Today’s post is all about cats for a great wedding or anniversary card.

I just had to get my hands on the new Cat Punch that’s in the 2017 Holiday catalogue and here they are in counterpoint!  The cat punch is part of a bundle for halloween crafting but as you can see, it can be used in other ways too.  Don’t they look cute with their tiny bows?  TIP:  I used a mini glue dot to make sure that that box stayed exactly where I wanted it.

Of course these cats needed eyes so I used our Pearls basic jewels as New, yes new black rhinestones from the 2017 Holiday catalogue for the white cat.

The idea for this card started with the Freshly Made sketch for this week.

As you can see, my card doesn’t follow the sketch exactly but there is nothing wrong with using a little “artistic license” when you’re in the creating zone!

COLORFUL SEASONS FOR THE GREAT OUTDOORS

The great outdoors is calling so I created this card which highlights the Colorful Seasons stamp set and Pick A Pattern Designer Series paper.

The Paper Players posted a theme challenge to highlight the great outdoors.  I decided to keep it simple and let the paper do the talking.  The Pick A Pattern designer paper has several great patterns to use for just about any theme that you want.  Adding that great sentiment also tells the story.

Here’s the list of products for you.

A LITTLE MUSIC NEVER HURTS!

Do you enjoy listening to music while you stamp?  I do and sometimes it can get a little loud, lol.  But was part of the creative process for today’s musical card.

I thought the greeting from Lift Me Up was a small “tongue in cheek” way to boost someone’s spirits.  This wasn’t intended to be a Christmas card but it could be transformed into one just by changing the greeting and maybe adding another small image to the greeting banner.

Here is the list of products in case you’d like to re-create this card yourself.

Have a wonderful Monday and Happy Stamping!
