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!

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.

A LITTLE WILD CUTENESS

Let’s start this week off with some cuteness with the Zany Zebras stamp set!

In case I haven’t said it before, I’m a little wild about this stamp set!  I pulled a piece from the Playing with Patterns designer paper pack(152490) to offset this cute little guy.

He was stamped with Stazon Jet Black ink and then I added a tiny bit of detail with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ and Blasic Black Write markers.

Here’s the list of products for you.

I hope that this little cutie brings a smile to your Monday and inspires you to go do some stamping!

FOR A GRAD

Hi out there and welcome!  I’m starting the week off with a card for a grad!  Our eldest granddaughter graduates this year and since there will be no grad ceremony, I wanted to create a special card for her!

I started out with the Floral Essence Bundle(151055) and the Emboss Resist Technique with Aqua Painters.

Start with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, stamp the images with Versamark, sprinkle White Emboss Powder over them(you could use clear too) and heat set.  Then I used Ink Refills with an Aqua Painter to brush the colour on.  After letting it dry, I overlaid a piece of vellum and went to work with the stamp set and matching punch.

Add the perfect greeting and voilå, you’re done!  For the record – I love this particular greeting!

Here’s the list of products used.

A LITTLE DINO KID LOVE TO END THE WEEK

Sometimes I tend to forget to make some fun cards for the kids in my life but today’s card makes up for that!

The Dino Days Bundle(151139) needed a little love, so out it came!  That cute dinosaur was stamped with Lovely Lipstick in and then heat embossed in clear emboss powder.  The “thorny” ridge on his back was stamped in Pretty Peacock ink and heat embossed as well.  I wanted him to stand out against the matching background paper.

The layout comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches and is a fun one to play with.

Now that I’ve started re-building my stash of kid cards, onwards to the fun of a few more!

Here’s the product list for today’s card.

ONE AMAZING KID

I love my grandchildren to pieces and so created a card that sends out the perfect thought!

All it took was two stamp sets and some of the bright and fun Dinoroar designer series paper!  Also, The Paper Players posted the perfect challenge to inspire me to get my thoughts onto some cardstock!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

MAKE A CUTE TREAT BOX

Did you know that the Parcels & Petals bundle has a great die that will make a really cute treat box?  I combined that bundle with the Dino Days Bundle to create this bright and simple treat box.

I love those dinosaur images and the matching Dinoroar designer paper!  This box was easy to put together and there are a few videos on YouTube that will help you.

Once the recipient has removed the band, sweet treat await!

Here’s the supply list for you.

DON’T YOU JUST LOVE DINOSAURS

Dinosaurs are the theme for today!  When I saw the Dino Days Bundle in the new catalogue I just had to have it!  This stamp set with matching dies and designer paper is so much fun to work with!

Isn’t it cute?!  The matching Dino Dies fit perfectly for a nice close cut!  The paper – oh my so many great designs!

After I stamped these cute images I needed a card layout so am following along with the Freshly Made Sketches layout.

As you can see, I used a little artistry to used the palm tree for those strips on the upper left.

Here’s the list of products used.

GREETINGS FROM MY ANIMAL FRIENDS

Some things stay the same and others change.  That’s what’s going on with todays cute card!

The Animal Outing stamp set is sticking around(yay, ’cause it’s so cute) but not as a bundle.  So, if you want to save 10% then now is the time to purchase the bundle which includes the Animal Friends Thinlits Dies.

I always save the scraps of designer paper so was able to use a piece from the Animal Expedition package for this card.  I also used the New Stitched Nested Labels Dies so we have a little “change” with the “same”!

Here’s the list of products for you.  Remember – you only have until June 3rd to get your picks from the Last Chance Lists!

RED HOT ROD FOR MY GRANDSON

Well, I was disappointed to see that the Geared Up Garage Bundle is going away soon.  It’s a great set so I made good use of it to create this card for my youngest grandson’s birthday.

He’s turning 5 and is crazy about cars!  And what better way to delight him than with this bright red hot rod!  The greeting comes from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set which is also on the Retirement list.

Here’s a list of products used.
