Pink & White Thank Yous

Hello, today I had to make quite a few girly Thank Yous for gifts I received on behalf of my new twin granddaughters!  I thought doing a bunch of nesting frame Die cuts in pearl white and various pink patterned papers would be fun.  I then inset the frames from the different papers inside one another.  I also Die cut foam and the pearl white cardstock to make my extra dimensional THANKS.

TH Balloon Shaker Card

I used Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs stamps and dies for the adorable pooch and Sunny Studios balloon stamp and die set.  The beautiful patterned paper was from my stash and the grass was Die cut using Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts.

BABY OH BABY

Greetings!  Today I made a card for my daughter and son-in-law congratulating them on the news that I am going to be a first time grandma TO TWINS!  Yes, double blessings and double trouble. ❤️

Baby Oh Baby

I used the Cricut to cut out the baby clothes and one of my many heart dies to cut out the heart using my eBosser.  I also embossed white cardstock to add a little interest.

Watercolored Macaroons

Today I have watercolored a beautiful scrumptious stack of macaroons, for my Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge.  I needed a thank you card for a sweet neighbor that generously bestowed onto us homemade WARM cinnamon rolls!  I thought it only fitting to use this adorable Elizabeth Craft Designs Tea Time stamp and die set.  I LOVE all the images and have used this set often.

ECD Macaroons

I colored the macaroons with my watercolor paints and colored the ‘ribbon’ with the pearlized flesh color… so pretty with the shimmer.

ECD Macaroon Stack

I Die cut the macaroons and popped them up onto a set of die cut stitched rectangles alternating green and pink, my main color palette.

Love Is All You Need

Greetings fellow paper crafters!  February is when many of us think of LOVE.  Today’s project for Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge is of course, a Valentine card.

I used a large LOVE Die that I received in a very generous prize package from Katscrappiness several years ago.  You must check her shop out, she has a ton of fabulous stuff!  You can find her shop here

I found this super cool piece of patterned paper in my stash, it’s a pink, black and white marble pattern.  Swoon!  The heart dies are so cute too, I just love how they are all a little different. I apologize, I have no idea who makes them.  I guarantee they are not knock offs as I will not purchase those types, but I have had them for awhile and I store all my dies on magnetic cards.

I popped the black ‘negative’ die cut panel up over that fabulous patterned paper, added stickers for the word YOU at the bottom and a little bling.  This was all on top of a white card panel.

One thing I like doing with Dies is using both the positive and negative of Dies to get two cards out of one cut.

Happy New Year to one and all!  This is my first post as Design Team Member for Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies.  This card is also the one I am using for my “Shake it Up” shaker card class at one of our little cardmaking groups in the town I live in.

The Shaker inserts, stamps and dies are all My Favorite Things.  I LOVE these shakers and sentiments!

Cheers to You Shaker Card

The background was created using Newton’s Nook Bubbly stencil and sponging on Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.  The glasses were shaded lightly with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink.  This set is so versatile, you can use the dies just simply for the single dimensional aspect or the shaker aspect.  I used for both on this card.  The Shaker inserts are simple to use, just be sure to use strong adhesive.  The Shaker elements are from Kat Scrappiness, I absolutely LOVE her online shop and her custom mixes of shaker elements.  The tiny ice cube shaker elements are from My Favorite Things.

Here is a second birthday card I created with these die and stamp sets.  This second card I used Studio Katia Birthday Balloons Duo stencils with Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Inks.

Grateful for Coffee!

Hello again!  I created another card for the Coffee Loving Papercrafters Blog Hop to play along click on that link.

Grateful Card

Grateful Card

I used an old Close To My Heart stamp set for the coffee cup.  The leaves were stamped using JustRite Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves set and colored all the images with alcohol markers.  The sentiment was from Unity Stamps, I absolutely LOVE them!  The papers are Moda Scrap from Elizabeth Craft Design.  I blended Distress Inks in Festive Berries and Squeezed Lemonade overlapping to make a third shade of orange, I used that to stamp the sentiment on and pull in the Autumn colors from the leaves.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and I would love to see what y’all create for the Coffee Hop.

Happy Scrapping!

A Like You A Latte!

Well hello, I am BACK! A whole bunch of “Life Events” happened since my last post, but it’s all good!  Enough about me, I am excited to be participating in the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Fall/Winter Blog Hop AGAIN!

I Like You A Latte

I Like You A Latte

I started by stamping the cup from Perfect Blend by Stampin’ Up and mask itso I could stamp a second cup.  I paper pieced the cup sleaves using some paper scraps in my stash.  I colored white twine using a teal alcohol marker and tied it around the top panel.  The top panel was then adhered to the teal base using foam tape. I topped it off with some Close To My Heart sequins and called it done!
