THE STARS HAVE IT

I’m going to end this week with a tribute to the stars in our life – our grandkids!  They are truly stars to us any day of the year!

Our two eldest grandkids are always available to come out and help with yard work so this star-laden card is for them!  I’m playing along with the newest Freshly Made Sketches layout and decided to move out of the circle to use the Stitched Stars dies(150653) and had a cutting fine time!

There was a lot of gluing going on too!  The Fine-Tip Glue Pen for all of the small stars and our Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the gold foil star.

Here’s the list of products used.

I hope that this card inspires you to honour the stars in your life.  Happy Stamping!

JUST SAYING HELLO

Hello to you on this Thursday!  I’m excited to share a card that I created with the Tasteful Touches stamp set(152562)!

This set does not have matching dies, so fussy-cutting was in order.  I also used the “Masking Technique” to make sure that those beautiful images really pop!  All you need to do for this technique is stamp the main image that you are using onto a post-it note and cut it out.  So, I stamped the flower image first, then covered it with the post-it note(the mask) and then stamped the sprays over top.  When you remove the mask, you have this lovely image left.

I’m playing along with The Paper Players for this,

and one of the items to use was glitter – so I added that with the Shimmery Crystal Effects pen(150892).  Then, for good measure added the mat of Brushed Metallic cardstock.

Here’s the list of products used.  You’ll see that I included the Heat Tool – it was used to set the crystal effects.

RIDE THIS JOYFUL SLEIGH

The weather has turned a little chilly up here, which led me to the Warm & Toasty stamp set(152615) with it’s oh-so cute critters.  These little bunnies are singing joyfully in their tiny sleigh!

I’m really enjoying using the Joy Dies(153530) – they make it easy to add a mat to those words.  In order to play along with the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge I needed to separate the letters so they would line up along the edge.  Love it!

I would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You to the design team at CAS(E) this sketch for picking this card as one of the favourites last week!

Here’s a close look at the Joy dies,

you can see the “extra” dies that will give you those layers that help to accent the words!

HAPPY DAY FLOWERS

Welcome!  I hope that this day brings you happiness and good feelings!  Today’s card is intended to do just that with it’s bright bouquet of flowers!

I went to the Jar of Flowers Bundle(154064) for this and added a few extra details for a little more pop.  There is a tiny stamp in the Jar of Flowers set that is intended to be the lid for that jar.  So, I heat embossed it with Gold Emboss Powder and wrapped it with a tiny length of the gold twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack(152475).

The greeting comes from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set(151331) which, in my opinion, is a great addition to any stamp collection!

DINO DAYS FUN

Hi on this Sunday morning!  I thought it was time for a little dinosaur fun which was what inspired today’s card.

Aren’t they cute?  I did some “stamping off” for the tree trunk and the branches to give a little dimension.  This was my second attempt at a card to play along with the new Freshly Made Sketches layout.  The first had too much white space so I decided to use the Dino Days stamp set(149406) and matching Dino Dies(149636) so I could add more interest.

Here’s the sketch that I followed.

And, here’s the list of products used.

MY GUY CARD

Hi – welcome to my version of a “guy” card for today!

Not all masculine cards need to be the darker colours so I started off with a card base of Balmy Blue and went from there!  I’ve been playing with the Many Medallions Dies(153584) a lot lately and decided to use it with the Brushed Metallic cardstock.  Glad I did because it turned out beautifully!  TIP:  You might want to use a cardstock shim when cutting out the metallic paper to make it easier to get rid of all of those tiny pieces!

There were a few stamped pieces from the Forever Fern Bundle in my UFP(unfinished projects) container, so I pulled them out to use and “borrowed” the sentiment from Tasteful Touches(152562).

This is my submission of a masculine-themed card to play along with one of my favourite challenge sites, The Paper Players.

IT’S AUTUMN HARVEST TIME

Many of our hard working farmers are bringing in their harvest so let’s send a great harvest blessing to them!

I created today’s card with that in mind!

And, this was the perfect opportunity to use a pattern from the Plaid Tidings designer paper pack(153527) too!  I love the colours in this piece and it worked out well with the already coloured image!  Make sure to check this paper out as it has colours that will work with every season.

I used a bit of Wink of Stella to colour those pussy willows so they would shine just a bit.

PEACEFUL BOUGHS 2020

Our weather is definitely changing to fall here in northeastern BC!  Each day is showing the changing leaves which says that winter is close behind!  So, today’s card is for Christmas 2020 with the Peaceful Boughs stamp set(150541).  This set also has matching dies(Beautiful Boughs) that you can find on page 180 of the annual catalogue.

This set is carried over from last year and I didn’t use it enough so today is the day to showcase it’s loveliness!  I also pulled out the Toile Christmas set for the greeting.

I also wanted to play along with the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge so followed the outline given in the sketch.

LEAVES, LEAVES, LEAVES

Happy Labour day to you!  Today’s card features leaves, and lots of leaves for sure!

While I was playing around on the web, I saw a card with this layout and decided to make it my own.  The background of leaves comes from the Forever Greenery designer paper pack(152492).  There are so many beautiful images in this package that it’s sometimes hard to choose!

I added the die-cuts that are found in the Well Written Dies(151816).  Words are not the only thing included in this package!

I’m playing along with the new SUO Challenge – which is to feature die-cutting and punching, for this as well.

Here’s the list of products used.
