XOXO Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_0556

Good morning everyone!  Today I have a cute Valentine's Day card for you featuring many new products.

To make this card I started with red cardstock and placed the Drifting Hearts Stencil over the paper and sponged Versa Mark ink over the stencil.  I removed the stencil and applied clear embossing powder over the stenciled image and heat embossed it.  This gave the hearts a nice glossy shine.  To make the hearts stand out a little more, I sponged Aged Mahogany and Black Soot Distress ink over the embossed hearts. Buff the paper with a tissue to remove any ink that might be on the embossed hearts.

I die cut the heart using one of the new Double Stitched Loving Heart dies. From the heart I die cut the Banded Heart Locket Die.

I die cut the branch and used twine to tie the heart to the branch.

I stamped, colored and die cut the bunny and adhered it to the back of the heart opening.

Using foam tape I glued the card front to my white card base.  I did not put adhesive behind the bunny so that I could put the hanging heart behind the bunny.  I glued the branch and hanging heart to the card front and then placed foam tape behind the bunny to adhere it to the card.

To finish the card I stamped and white heat embossed the XOXO.  Then I used foam tape to glue it to the card.

That's it for today!  I hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

Love You
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_0537

Hello everyone! Today I have a card for you which features only some of the wonderful new products from the 2020 Valentine's release.  

To create this card I stamped the Friendship Floral Heart in the upper right hand corner of my card and colored it with colored pencils.  Then I placed the Drifting Hearts Stencil over my card and sponged hearts under the stamped flowers.  I used Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink for the hearts and the edge of the card. Next I spattered the card with blue and white ink. When the ink was dry I glued the card front to a black cardstock mat, and used foam tape to adhere it to a white card base.

I die cut the Love Airy Script from black cardstock and glued it to my card front.  Next I stamp the word you on a strip of black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

I hope you enjoy this new release and can see the versatility of all the products.  Even though it's a Valentine's release I feel this card would be a great card for many occasions.

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your week!

Merry & Bright
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_0458

Good morning everyone, I can't believe Christmas is in a few days!  I have my final Christmas card for 2019 for you today! Inevitably, we always need one more card.

To make this card, I placed a piece of painters tape across the middle of a piece of white cardstock.  Using a blender brush I applied green distress inks to my cardstock.

IMG_0456

Once the ink was dry I stamped my image with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.  While the tape was still in place I sponged the edges of the paper with Forest Moss distress ink.  

IMG_0457 (1)

Next I peeled off the tape and spattered it with white ink.  I adhered this to a red glitter cardstock mat and glued it to a white card base.  

I die cut the word merry from red glitter paper and glued it to my card front.

I stamped the sentiment "and bright" on black cardstock and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I used foam tape to adhere it to the card.

I hope you enjoyed this final Christmas card of 2019!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Making Spirits Bright Ornament
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_0428

Hello everyone, today I have a quick last minute ornament for you to make!

I started with a birch slice circle and dry brushed a little white acrylic paint on it. I didn't cover the ornament completely with paint so that some of the wood grain shows through. When it was dry, I lightly sanded the ornament to make it smooth.

Next I stamped my image on the ornament using black pigment ink, then heat embossed it with black embossing powder.

I colored in my stamped image with colored pencils and spattered the background with white acrylic paint.

IMG_0432

To finish the ornament I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  

I tied a piece of twine to the ornament for a hanger.

IMG_0432

That's it!  I told you it was easy.  That's for stopping by today and Merry Christmas to you all.

Joy Christmas Ornament
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_0353

Hi everyone!  Today I have a fun Christmas ornament project for you. 

To create the ornament, I used the "Twas the Night Wide Washi Tape" to cover a wooden ornament I bought at the craft store.  I trimmed the excess tape from the ornament and used a piece of sandpaper the smooth the edges.

IMG_0351

I stamped the word "Joy" and heat embossed it with red embossing powder.  I sponged the edge of the ornament with white acrylic and sprinkled glitter over the paint.

IMG_0352

Next I die cut the "Antique Pine Label Die" from a piece cardstock from the 6"x 6" Dashing Stripes and Dots paper pad.  I cut the pine branches from the label and glued them to the top of the ornament.  I used a gold paint pen to color the top of the ornament.  

IMG_0355

To finish the ornament, I spattered it with white acrylic paint and added some red pearls for berries.

I hope enjoyed this project and have a great week!

Merry & Bright
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_0333 (1)

Hello everyone, today I have a simple card that's made with a few dies and a stamp.

I took a piece of patterned paper from the new 6"x 6" paper pad, and die cut the Holly Double Arch in the center of the card front. I glued this to a slightly smaller piece of white cardstock and adhered it to a black cardstock mat. I used foam adhesive to glue that to a white card base.

Next I die cut the word "merry" from red cardstock and glued this in the center of the card.

I masked off the word merry from a sentiment stamp, and stamped the remainder of the sentiment onto black cardstock.  I white heat embossed the sentiment and adhered it to my card front using foam adhesive.  

IMG_0332

To finish the card, I added some red rhinestones to the die cut. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Joy Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_0316

Hello everyone!  Today I have a cute Christmas card to inspire you to get a start on your holiday card making. 

To make this card I started by die cutting the Starry Burst die onto watercolor paper.  I sponged over the paper with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink and misted it with plain water.  The water helps the ink blend and settle into the rays of the burst. Next, I spattered the background with white paint.

 

IMG_0317

Next, I die cut the Pine Tree Hill from watercolor paper and glued this to my inked card front.  I trimmed away the excess on each side of the trees to fit the inked panel.  

I stamped the word "Joy" with red ink, die cut it, and used foam tape to glue it to my card.  I also stamped the sentiment in red ink under the trees.  

The deer were stamped, colored and die cut and I used foam tape to adhere them to the card.

IMG_0312

To finish the card I mounted the card front to patterned paper mat and glued this to a white card base.  

I hope you all have a great week, and find some time to make some cards!

Boo to you!
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_0264

Good Morning!  Today I have a quick and easy Halloween card for you!

To make this card I used the spider web stencil and placed it on the corner of my watercolor paper and sprayed across the stencil with Black Soot Distress Oxide Spray. 

IMG_0257


Once the ink was dry, I adhered the paper to a black cardstock mat and used foam tape to glue this to a white card base.

Next I die cut the large ghost 3 times from white cardstock and glued those to my card front.

I sponged Craved Pumpkin Distress ink on a strip of white cardstock and used foam tape to glue this to my card.  The word "Boo" I die cut from the new Mini Vintage Varsity Alphabet die set, and glued that to the orange strip.  

IMG_0266

To finish the card I stamped the sentiment, "to you" under the orange strip.  The sentiment said "Happy Birthday to you",  but I masked off the Happy Birthday and only stamped, "to you" on my card.  

Thanks for stopping by today and have a safe and Happy Halloween!

Boo Card
by Donna

IMG_0238

Hello everyone, today I have a cute Halloween Card for you which uses several stamps to create a wreath around an adorable ghost. I used the Gina K Wreath Builder Template to create my wreath.  I picked my main stamp image to begin building my wreath.  

IMG_0239

I started by placing my template in my Misti Stamp Platform, and then placed a 4"x 4" piece of watercolor paper into the template.  I stamped my first image and then rotated my paper 4 times to begin to create my wreath.

IMG_0241

IMG_0242

I picked several other stamp images to fill in my wreath.  Once I was done with my stamping, I watercolored the wreath.  I fussy cut the center of the wreath and glued it to a black cardstock mat.

I die cut the ghost and the word BOO from white cardstock.  I glued the word BOO to a strip of black cardstock and adhered the ghost and the word to the front of the card.

IMG_0235

To finish the card I adhered the card front to a white card base using foam adhesive.

I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
