Happy Birthday
by Donna Sledzik

Good morning everyone!

Today I have a fun birthday card for you, featuring the Rolling Wave Collage die and some playful seals.

Donna1

To create this card, I die cut the Rolling Wave from a piece of white cardstock, and then glued it onto a background layer which I painted with watercolors.

I stamped, colored and die cut the seals and the ball, then adhered them to the card front using foam adhesive. 

Donna2

I then stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the card and glued the card front to a white notecard.

I hope I inspired you to create a few cards!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!

To the Sweetest
by Donna Sledzik

Hello everyone!

I hope you're having a great weekend.  Today I have a cute card which can be used as a Easter card or an all occasion card, and the best part of all, it's quick and easy!

Donna1

To make this card I stamped the bunny in the center of a piece of white cardstock.  I masked the bunny and then stamped the cake stand to make it look as if the bunny was standing on it.  I colored the stamped images with colored pencils and mounted this to a piece of black cardstock, and then adhered it to a piece of green cardstock.  

Donna2

I used foam adhesive to glue it to a white notecard, that has washi tape adhered on the right hand side of the card.  I stamped the sentiment underneath the mounted image.

To finish the card I added a pom pom to the bunny and a few black epoxy embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Spring
by Sharon Harnist

Happy Spring, Friends!  The Spring rainy season has been here and now green is popping up everywhere ... I love it!  To celebrate, I thought these adorable Spring Bunnies would be appropriate!

3-10 SpringBunnies-SH

Aren't those bunnies adorable?!!  I stamped them in Memento Gray Flannel ink, then colored them with Copic T0, T1, T2, and gave them rosy cheeks and pink ears with Copic R00 and R20.  Next, I die cut Blossom Circle from a green alcohol ink background paper I created with Copic Various Ink Refills and glued it in place around the bunnies.  Next, I used Broadsworth Floral Border to cut the card front right edge of my white top-folding card base.  Then I glued a strip of pink alcohol ink background paper to the inside of the card, to make the delicate die cut edge pop.

3-10 SpringBunniesProd-SH

To finish the card, I stamped the "happy spring" sentiment from the Spring Bunnies stamp set with Memento Rose Bud ink.

I hope you are enjoying a nice Spring weekend wherever you are!

Llama fun
by Donna Sledzik

Hello everyone!

Llamas are all the rage right now and I couldn't wait to play with this new stamp set, "Llama Love".   This card covers two of my favorite things, llamas and coloring!

Donna1

This card was so easy to make!  Simply stamp the llamas on white cardstock in a random manner and color with colored pencils!  Use could use any coloring method that works for you. I used a gray marker to add shading behind the llamas to give them some depth.

Donna2

Once you have the images colored, adhere the card front to a black cardstock layer and glue that to a white notecard.  

To finish the card stamp and emboss your sentiments on black cardstock and glue it to the card front along with embellishments.

Dashing Through the Snow
by Donna Sledzik

Hi everyone!

Today I have a Christmas card featuring a cute elf from the Playtime Elves clear stamp set along with his reindeer friend from the Dashing with Reindeer clear stamp set.

IMG_3545

To create this card, I started by sponging Broken China Distress Oxide onto watercolor paper.  I misted the ink lightly with water and dried with the heat tool, and spattered the background with white and black ink.  

Next, I die cut the frame from white cardstock.  The frame was cut using one of dies from the Scalloped Stitch Fancy Frame die set.  The frame is rectangle shape, so I cut a piece off to form a square instead.  This was glued to the card front at an angle. 

IMG_3547

I stamped the elf, the reindeer, and Christmas lights from watercolor paper and colored and cut them out.  I glued a piece of twine from the elf to the reindeer and used foam adhesive to adhere them to the front of the card.  I applied some texture paste underneath the sleigh and sprinkled it with glitter.  

I stamped and embossed the sentiment on licorice cardstock and cut it out by following the curved line of the saying.  Using foam adhesive, I glued this to the card.

To finish the card, I glued a piece of washi tape to a strip of white cardstock and adhered this to the back of the card front.  Using foam tape, I adhered this to a Cranberry notecard.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great week!

Trick or Treat
by Donna Sledzik

Good morning everyone!

Today I have a great Halloween card for you, which mixes new with old.  The Halloween Sideshow stamp set is one of my favorite Halloween sets.

IMG_3515

To create this card use the smallest rectangle from the Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die set to cut three rectangles from white cardstock, save the cardstock for a card layer. Ink the cut rectangles using Twisted Citron distress ink. Mist them with water and let dry.  Using the Circle Web Collage die, cut two webs from Licorice cardstock, cut them apart and glue onto the sponged rectangle pieces.  

IMG_3516

Using foam tape I adhered the saved white die cut card layer to a Licorice cardstock layer, which is glued to a white card base.  I spattered the card with black ink.  

I inserted the rectangles back into place on the card front.  Because the white cardstock layer is popped up and the rectangles are glued flat to the Licorice cardstock layer, they create a window.  In the window I placed the stamped and colored Halloween images and the sentiments,  which were stamped on Licorice cardstock strips and embossed using white embossing powder. 

IMG_3516

To finish the card I added some orange Nuvo Dots, and that's it!

I hope you enjoyed todays card, and have a great day!

Sentimental Iris and Wrapped Stitch Rectangles by Jean Okimoto

P1010510

The beautiful butterflies from the Open Studio Sentimental Iris Clear Stamp Set just seemed right for a summer card today.  I love their cool, artsy details...they just look happy and carefree, and perfect for a simple color-splashed design.   Hello -  Jean Okimoto here tonight, with another almost-the-end-of-summer card for you.

P1010518

Press inks from the Kaleidacolor Melon Melody inkpad onto a large acrylic block.  Paint the pretty colors onto the smoother side of watercolor paper.  Heat-set the inks.  Cut it with the 2-3/4" x 4" Rectangle Basics die.  

P1010499

Arrange the butterflies and greeting from the Sentimental Iris set on the watercolored background.  Place the acrylic block over the arrangement and press firmly to attach the stamps to the block.  Not quite rocket-science, but it's a lot easier than trying to guess where to stamp and how to fit the images within the background.  Stamp it with VersaFine Onyx Black and emboss it with detail clear powder

Lightly watercolor the butterflies with the Melon Melody inks used for the background.

Cut strips of yellow and green cardstock with the long edges of the 4" tall and 4-3/4" tall Wrapped Stitch Rectangles dies.  The dies add the right amount of texture and interest without competing with the butterflies.  Just another reason to add the versatile Wrapped Stitch Rectangles to your stash!

Attach the diecuts to a Key Lime Notecard.  Add green gem stickers.

P1010515

Can't wait to see everyone at the HOLLY, JOLLY HOLIDAYS class at Impress this weekend!  We're adding  6 more Christmas designs to the holiday card stash - lots of diecuts, layering, techniques, glitter and pretty colors!  New fall and winter items keep arriving at Impress  -  everything you need/want/wish for!  View their great collection of Memory Box and Poppystamps here.

Thanks for stopping by - have a great evening...

Ocean Card
by Donna Sledzik

Good morning everyone!  

Today I have a card for you which features a couple of new ocean themed stamp sets.

Mb fish 5

To create this card I stamped several different sea creatures onto watercolor paper.  I used Zig clean color real brush markers to color the stamped images. This would make a cute card for a childs birthday and they could color in the images themselves.  

Mb fish 4

I stamped the sentiment onto a Licorice strip of cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder.  Using foam adhesive, I adhered the stamped strip to card front which I then glued to a Licorice card layer.   To finish the card, I glued the card front to a White card base.

I find it so relaxing to color and this is a fun card to stamp and color!

Have a great week!

Water You Doing?
by Melissa Rusk

Summer is in full swing here so it's time to escape to the beach! Since I can't make it to the actual beach I decided to create an ocean themed card.

IMG_5971

The Seal of Approval stamp set is so cute. I decided to stamp the smaller seal for my card today and I added the beach ball on top of his nose. Then I used some masking paper and stamped another seal to protect the card while stamping the waves.

IMG_5972

I then stamped the saying and finished it off with the little water drops in the same color as my waves. I colored my image with Copic Markers. I used C1, C3, C5, G12 and B01 for this cutie. I glued the stamped piece to a teal card and finished it off with a coordinating rick rack.

I hope you have a great weekend with a little time by the water!

Holy Mackerel Birthday Card
by Lindsay

Hello!

Summer is so close, and all of those fun activities will be happening soon! I am excited! One of my family's favorite things to do is go fishing, so I couldn't resist playing around with the adorable Fish Tales stamp set. Using some watercolors, and a stamping tool, I was able to create a fun background for this colorful birthday card. 

DSC_0256 3

I started by taking all of the fish, and and laying them out over my panel. I then picked them up with the door of my stamp tool, and inked it up with black ink. I cleaned them really well, and did the same thing for the other portion of the panel. I then filled in the spaces with some of the fish. 

DSC_0255 2

For the coloring, I used Gansi Tambi Watercolors from Kuretake. These are really creamy, and pigmented! I did several layers to get a bit of depth. After the fish were dried, I added a light blue pigment around them. I then added a touch of white gel pen to a select number of fish. 

DSC_0257 1

For the sentiment, I white heat embossed on black card stock, and trimmed it down, adhering it to the panel with foam tape. I then adhered several black sequins. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Enjoy your week!
