Storybook Puppy Love

For all those fur parents out there, here is an adorable layout you can create using our Storybook Alphabet acrylic stamp set.  Over three years ago, we decided to adopt a dog that was found starving, sickly, and tattered along the roadside. She was so frightened when she came into our home and often hid whenever someone came into the house. Well, not only was she tattered, but we found out soon that she was pregnant. We made the decision to continue the pregnancy, assuming that nothing would survive, but a few months later we had six healthy puppies and , OF COURSE, we had to keep one.  God had a plan because six months later our two other dogs (ages 16 and 17) passed away.  We are true dog lovers in this home and I felt this layout is a perfect display of our love for those fur babies.

Washi Wonder Medallion Card

For this week’s Color My Heart Dare challenge, we are required to use Tangerine, Sorbet, Sea Glass, Lemon, White with optional Gold from our Prickly Pear color palette. I was able to use all the colors for this week’s challenge by taking advantage of the washi tape designs on our Washi Wonder acrylic stamp set.

I am so excited that this stamp set was brought back for our July Stampaganza special. I would love to see what you create using some of our stamp sets that were specifically brought back for our Buy 2 Get 1 Free Stampaganza and join the Color My Heart Dare challenge this week.  If you wish to recreate this card, a list of the supplies used can be found at the very bottom of this post.

MedallionWashiCard.jpg

Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, 5¼” x 4″ Sea Glass Cardstock, 5″ x 3¾” White Daisy Cardstock, 2¼” x 3¾”  Sorbet Cardstock, 2″ x 3½” B&T Paper (Floral Prickly Pear), 12″ x 1″ B&T Paper (Lemon Prickly Pear), 12″ x  ¾” B&T Paper (Sorbet Prickly Pear), 3¾” x ¾” White Daisy Cardstock

Assembly Instructions:
1. Adhere the Sea Glass cardstock onto the center of a 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base.
2. Using Sorbet, Sea Glass, Tangerine, and Lemon Ink, stamp the “Washi Tape” images onto the lower right side of the 5″ x 3¾” White Daisy cardstock.
3. Adhere the 5″ x 3¾” White Daisy cardstock to the center of the Sea Glass cardstock.
4. Adhere the 2″ x 3½” B&T Paper onto the 2¼” x 3¾”  Sorbet Cardstock, then adhere horizontally to the top of the White Daisy cardstock ¼” from the top.
5. Using the Say It All acrylic stamp set, stamp a sentiment with Black Ink onto the right side of the 3¾” x ¾” White Daisy cardstock strip. (NOTE: The Say It All acrylic stamp set is only available during our Stampaganza event.)
6. Adhere the 3¾” x ¾” White Daisy cardstock horizontally to the center of the 2″ x 3½” B&T Paper.
7. To create the medallion, first score the 12″ x 1″ B&T paper every ¼” the full length of the paper. Fold an accordion fold the entire length of the paper, then adhere the ends together to create a tube.
MedallionOne
8. Flatten the tube and adhere the center together.  I have found it best to cut a 1″ circle out of cardstock, place a glue dot onto the center of the circle, then place the cardstock circle onto the center of the medallion.
MedallionTwo
9. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to create a second medallion with the 12″ x  ¾” B&T paper.
10. Layer the medallions and adhere to the card as shown, then place a small gold gem in the center.

Don’t forget that the Washi Wonder and Say It All acrylic stamp sets are available for a limited time during our Buy 2 Get 1 Free Stampaganza event.

Relax with No Worries Layout

As you know, I enjoy each week’s Color My Heart Dare Challenge. They inspire me to try something new with a color palette I would not have likely chosen.  This week, we were challenged to use only Cashmere, Glacier, Lagoon, Sapphire, Whisper and White Daisy inks with the No Worries paper pack, so I chose to make a scrapbook layout for some fun summer vacation photos.

NoWorriesLayoutOne

This layout is one that we will be making in my upcoming No Worries Creative Club Workshop where you will learn how to use our inks to enhance your scrapbook pages. On this layout, I used our White Daisy Exclusive Ink Pad to add foam caps to the waves.  It really added dimension to the layout.  You can find a list of the remaining supplies I used to create this scrapbook page at the bottom of this post. Please feel free to ask questions about the layout, my upcoming workshop, and the products used on this layout. 

If you are one of my long-distance followers, you can purchase the Workshop Guide which includes a link to the Cricut Design Space file so that you can recreate this layout using our inks and sponging techniques.

No Worries Retirement Card

Each week, I am challenged to create something new, and often, I try to maximize my efforts.  For this weeks Color My Heart Color Dare, I found the perfect color combination for one of my upcoming Inked Background Workshop cards.   Our Sapphire, Glacier, New England Ivy, White Daisy and Desert Sand Ink colors were a perfect combination to create this Oceanside scene for a retirement card.  Can’t you just picture yourself spending the rest of your days on this beach?

InkedBackgroundRetirementCard

This card is part of my No Worries Inked Background Card Workshop which you can attend in July.   If you are one of my long-distance followers, you can purchase the Workshop Guide and follow the detailed instructions to recreate these relaxing scenes using our inks and sponging techniques.

This card uses our No Worries papers, which I had found to be one of the best paper packs to create with. You can find a list of the remaining supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of this post. Please feel free to ask questions about the card, my upcoming workshop, and the products used on this card.

Here’s a Quick Tip  when using our inks and sponges.  I have found that it works best to cut our Round Sponge into sixths, then attach one end of the sponge into a Binder Clip.  I have each of mine labeled with the color name on the top of the Binder Clip and they all fit into bin on my desk.  This keeps my hands a little cleaner and prevents my ink pads from getting contaminated with other colors.

Fun Folded No Worries Card

The adventures continue with Inked Background cards for my July workshop. This week, I created a simple Inked Background on the front of a rustic z-fold card using our No Worries paper and accessories.  As always, I included a list of supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of this post.

FoldedInkedBackgroundCard.jpg

In July, I will be teaching a workshop showing you how to create inked backgrounds for cards.  If you love these Inked Backgrounds as much as I do, you will want to visit my blog weekly or subscribe to my workshops newsletter to learn how you can attend one of my workshops.  The July No Worries Creative Club Workshop will feature three inked background cards and two layouts using inking techniques.  I will also have Workshop Guides available, for those who cannot attend, explaining how to create these amazing projects.

If you decide to start trying to create some amazing Inked Backgrounds, and you suddenly realize that the background seems too dark or patchy, then I suggest you purchase our  White Daisy Exclusive Inks Stamp pad.  This ink pad is a Pigment Ink that works well to blend our water-based dye inks.  Your colors will blend beautifully and have a gorgeous, muted, watercolor look. 🙂

Hello Foxy Fence Card

The June Stamp of the Month, Hello Foxy,  has three cute little foxes, adorable little flowers, a wreath and  sentiments.  This week, I used the floral Wreath image with our Rustic Home Fundamentals to create a gender neutral card that can be given for just about any occasion.  During the month of June, I will be creating weekly projects using the Hello Foxy stamp set, so be sure to visit often.   As always, I’ve included a list of the products I used to create this card at the very bottom of this post.

FoxyFenceCard

Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, (7) 5″ x ½” B&T Paper (I used Rustic Fundamentals Woodgrain), (2) 4¼” x ½” B&T Paper (I used Rustic Fundamentals Woodgrain),  5″ x 3″ White Daisy Cardstock (for stamped image)

Assembly Instructions:
1. To create the inked background, use a sponge to apply Sweet Leaf Ink to the bottom third of the card base, then, using Glacier ink, sponge color on the top two-thirds of the card base.   NOTE: I prefer to use sticky notes with the full-adhesive on the back to create a mask. I laid the card base flat on my work surface, then masked the edges.
FoxyFenceBackground.jpg2. Create a “Fence Picket” by trimming the tops of each of the seven 5″ x ½” B&T paper strips.  Using a sponge, apply Desert Sand ink to the edges.
3. Adhere the “Fence Pickets” vertically, evenly spaced, onto the card base.
4. Using a sponge, apply Desert Sand ink to the edges of the two 4¼” x ½” B&T paper strips.  Adhere these paper strips horizontally to create the “Fence Railings”. Using Black Ink, stamp the sentiment onto the right side of the bottom “Fence Railing”.
5. Using Black Ink, stamp the “Wreath” image onto the White Daisy cardstock. Using Watercolor Pencils, shade the “Wreath” image.  (I used Dutch Blue, Spring Iris, Honey, Clover Meadow, and Citrus Leaf.)
6. Cut out the “Wreath” image and adhere it to the “Fence” using Thin 3D Foam Tape. NOTE: I used our Circle Thin Cuts to cut out the center circle. 
7. Using Black Ink, stamp the “Sitting Fox” image onto the White Daisy cardstock. Using Watercolor Pencils, shade the “Sitting Fox” image.  (I used Brown Bag and Autumn Terracotta.)
8. Cut out the “Sitting Fox” image then adhere to the bottom left side of the card using Thin 3D Foam Tape.
9.  If desired, add a Jute Bow and stamp a sentiment inside the card.

Remember, the Hello Foxy Acrylic stamp set is available until June 30th !  Contact me or visit my website to see how you can get this stamp set for only $5.00!

Laugh Together Layout

I typically stick with very simple, muted layouts.  This probably stems from the fact that I am a mother of multiple boys, but this week I decided to make a lively scrapbook page for my only daughter.   For the weekly Color My Heart Dare challenge, I  use a variety of bright colors from the Whimsy Fundamentals along with the Live, Laugh, Love stamp set.  This stamp set is available for purchase for only $5.00 with a qualifying purchase from my website.   As always, I’ve included a list of the products I have used to create this layout at the very bottom of this post.

LaughTogetherLayoutTWO.jpg

Paper Needed: 12″ x 12″ Cardstock (I used Juniper), 11½” x 11¾” Cardstock (I used White Daisy), 7″ x 5½” B&T Paper (I used Juniper), 7″ x 5½” B&T Paper (I used Juniper), 7″ x ¼” B&T Paper (I used Juniper), 1½” x 1½” B&T Paper (I used Canary), 4½” x 3″ B&T Paper (I used Glacier), 1¼” x 2¾” B&T Paper (I used Canary), ¼” x 3¾” B&T Paper (I used Juniper), ¼” x 3¼” B&T Paper (I used Canary), ¼” x 3″ B&T Paper (I used Glacier), 2½” Circle B&T Paper (I used Thistle), White Daisy Cardstock for Stamped Images

Slide1

Techniques Used on this Layout: 

  • I have a added a layout guide to show paper placement. If you click on the this link, you can see a larger photo with measurements.  All my scrapbook guides that I sell have photos like this to show placement and measurement.
  • The “Flower” images on the bottom left corner were done using theLaughTogetherLayout_Flower.jpg Live, Laugh. Love stamp set. I used Black Memento Ink to stamp the images, then used a Blending Pen with Glacier, Thistle, Canary, and Juniper ink to shade the images.
  • The layered “Flower & Leaf” images were created using the Live, Laugh. Love stamp set. I used Black Memento Ink to stamp the flowers, then used a Blending Pen with Thistle, Canary, and Juniper ink to shade the images. I cut out the flowers and leaves, layered them on top of each other, then adhered them to the layout with Thin 3D Foam Tape.
  • The “Laugh” title was created using the Live, Laugh. Love stamp set. I brushed Purple Watercolor paint onto some Watercolor Paper, then, after it was dry, stamped the “Laugh” image  using Black Memento Ink. I shaded in the flowers with a Silver Metallic Marker, then cut out each individual letter so that I could have the staggered look to my title.LaughTogetherLayout_Title.jpg

Simple Get Well Card

This week’s Color My Heart Dare  challenge requires the use of Pacifica, White Daisy, Black and Emerald. What an exciting combination of colors!  I took advantage of the Some Kinda’ Wonderful paper pack and the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge to create this amusing Get Well card.  As always, I’ve included a list of the products I have used to create this card at the very bottom of this post.

CaughtABugCard.jpg

Paper Needed: 3″ x 4″ B&T Paper (I used the Some Kinda Wonderful PML), 2¼” x 4″ B&T Paper (I used Some Kinda’ Wonderful),  2″ x 3″ White Daisy Cardstock (Jar), 1″ x 3″ White Daisy Cardstock (Bugs), 3″ x ½” B&T Paper (I used Some Kinda’ Wonderful)

Assembly Instructions:
1. Adhere the 3″ x 4″ B&T paper horizontally to the center of the card base 1/8″ from the top. NOTE: I cut out a Picture My Life card from the Some Kinda’ Wonderful paper pack, then used the writing feature on my Cricut with the Flower Market Cartridge to create the sentiment.  You could use the Pen Pal or Jennifer’s Hand stamp sets to create the same look.
2. Adhere the 2¼” x 4″ B&T paper below the 3″ x 4″ B&T paper.
3. Cut a 4″ piece of ribbon and attach it to the card between the two pieces of paper.
4. Using the Flower Market Cartridge and a Cricut, create the Mason Jar by creating the “cut” image at 2.75″ on White Daisy Cardstock. NOTE: To create the outline, I created a duplicate image that was slightly smaller and changed the layer to a “write”. You could create the same effect with the Vivid Green ShinHan Marker.
5. Using Black Ink, stamp three “Bug” images inside the mason jar.
6. Using Emerald Ink, stamp three “Bug” images onto the 1″ x 3″ White Daisy Cardstock.  Using the Thin Cuts, cut out the three bug images. To create the dual toned effect, cut out the center and antennae from the Emerald Bugs before layering them onto the Black Bugs.
7. Cut the 3″ x ½” B&T paper in half, then cut chevrons onto the smaller ends.  Layer the paper strips and Mason Jar onto the card, as shown.

Dreamin’ Big Penny Slider Card

This week’s Color My Heart Dare uses all of the warm, summer tones of our Dreamin’ Big paper collection. Each of our paper packets includes a set of Picture My Life (PML) cards, which are awesome, but are sometimes hard to use if you don’t scrapbook. This week, I decided to find a way to use this PML page to create a fun penny slider card. Our Thin Cuts made creating this card a breeze. You can get our Thin Cuts at a discount this month and save on the supplies to recreate this card.  As always, I’ve included a list of the products I have used to create this card at the very bottom of this post.

DBPennySliderCard

Paper Needed: 9½” x 4¼” White Daisy Cardstock, 4″ x 4¼” Black Cardstock, 1½” x 4¼” B&T Paper (I used Dreamin’ Big), Dreamin’ Big PML sheet, 2″ x 3″ White Daisy Cardstock (Dragonfly)

Assembly Instructions:
1. Score the 9½” x 4¼” White Daisy Cardstock at 5½” on the long side. Fold to create the card base.
2. Adhere the 1½” x 4¼” B&T Paper horizontally to the bottom (inside) of the card.DBPennySliderInside
3. Cut the horizontal “Life is an Adventure” PML to 5¼”. Center the PML on the inside of the card and adhere so that the sentiment is hidden by the flap and the flowers show when the card is closed.
4. Stamp the “Dragonfly” image onto the 2″ x 3″ White Daisy Cardstock. Using a Cuttle Bug (or equivalent) with the  Dragonfly Thin Cut, cutout the stamped image. NOTE: To create the multicolored image, I used strips of Slate, Sorbet, and Glacier Re-inkers to create a stamp pad on a baby wipe. .
4. Using the large Circle Thin Cut with a Cuttle Bug (or equivalent), cut a 2½” circle out of the “Dream Big” PML making sure the sentiment is centered inside the circle.
5. Using a tool or machine of your choice, cut a 3″ circle out of the center of the 4″ x 4¼” Black Cardstock.  NOTE: If you own a Cricut, you can find the canvas here.
6. Cut out the 3″ x 4″ “Woodgrain” PML card. This is going to create the background behind the sentiment and it is an EXACT fit, so make sure it lines up  with the circle cutout on the Black cardstock before adhering to the card front.
7. Using White Daisy Ink, stamp the “Insect Trail” around the edges of the 4″ x 4¼” Black Cardstock. Place 3D Foam Tape along the edges on the back of the cardstock, then adhere to the front flap on the card.
8. Using a hole punch, cut a circle from the 3D Foam tape and adhere to the center of a penny. With the Foam Tape facing upwards, place the edge of the penny under the Black Cardstock. Place 3D Foam Tape onto the back of the “Dream Big” PML, avoiding the edges, then adhere to the center of the card.  This will begin to build the slider track.
9. Remove the backing from the penny’s foam pad and attach a second penny above it. Top with a pretty die-cut Dragonfly. CONGRATULATIONS!  You just made a slider card!

A Cricut Design Space Canvas is available for $3.00 and includes the cuts for the card base, cards front, circles, and background. Email me to purchase the canvas.

Tea-rriffic Mother’s Day Card

The Tea-rriffic Stamp of the Month is the perfect set to have for creating Mother’s Day cards.  This week, I paired the stamps with our Heart Thin Cuts (currently 25% off) to create this fun card for Mother’s Day.   I’ll be sharing project ideas throughout the month with this stamp set, so be sure to visit often.  At the very bottom of this post, I’ve included a list of the products I have used to create this card.

tearrifficmothersdaycard

Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” B&T Paper (I used Adventure Fundamentals), 5¼” x 4″ White Daisy Cardstock, 3¾” x ½” B&T Paper (I used Adventure Fundamentals), 3½” x ½” B&T Paper (I used Adventure Fundamentals), 4″ x 4″ White Daisy Cardstock, 3″ x 1½” Vellum (I used Uptown Fundamentals)

Assembly Instructions:
1. Adhere the 5½” x 4¼” B&T Paper to the front of the card base.
2. Using Thin 3D Foam tape, adhere the 5¼” x 4″ White Daisy Cardstock to the center of the B&T paper.
3. Cut a chevron into one of the shorter sides on both of the ½” B&T paper strips. Layer the B&T paper strips onto the bottom of the 5¼” x 4″ White Daisy Cardstock.
4.  Using the Black Pigment Ink pad, stamp the “Mother’s Day Teacup” and the “Teabag” images onto the 4″ x 4″ White Daisy Cardstock, then sprinkle on Clear Embossing Powder and shake off extra.  Heat with heat gun until it is embossed. NOTE:  Use a small paint brush to brush off any unwanted embossing powder before heating.
5. Using ShinHan Markers, color the “Mother’s Day Teacup” and “Teabag” images, then cut them out. Note: I did not cut out the handle of the teacup. I am lazy sometimes. 🙂 teacupcoloring

6. Using a Piercing Tool or small hole punch, create a hole in the “Teabag” image. Thread a piece of White Twine through the hole and create a knot at the end.
7. Using the Small Heart Thin Cut, make three small hearts from the vellum. (I am so excited that these are 25% off this month!)
8. Adhere the “Mother’s Day Teacup”  and the “Teabag” onto the card, as shown, using 3D Foam tape. To create the “rising hearts”, fold each heart in half and adhere to the card by placing a strip of Liquid Glass on the fold, then adhering to the card. Liquid Glass can also be used to hold the “Teabag” knot in place on the teacup.
