To Some Bunny Awesome

Hi, everyone!Β  I’m back to share my project for today. I decided it was time to use the Mark My Words bookmark dies. I have a lot of family and friends who I know are going to love getting some adorable bookmarks with these dies! For today’s bookmark I decided to go with a spring/Easter theme.

I started by die cutting three of the same bookmark shapes. There are two designs in the set, but I wanted to use some twine on mine, so I went with the one that had the hole at the top. On one of the bookmarks I ink blended Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide over it. Then I splattered it with Blueprint Sketch and Milled Lavender Distress Oxide that I’d watered down a little. Over the second book mark I ink blended over the entire die cut piece with some Distress Oxide that I’d mixed myself with reinkers. Finally, for the last bookmark, I used the Grassy Lass Border dies to cut the bottom off. Then I ink blended Twisted Citron and the hand mixed green-ish color I used for the back side. All three pieces were set aside to dry completely while I worked on the other pieces.

I stamped out the bunny and carrots from the Honey Bunny Boo stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers. Then I die cut them out with the coordinating dies and added some white gel pen details. I adhered the grass bookmark bottom to the blue bookmark, as well as the bunny and carrots. I decided I didn’t like how empty the top was, so I went ahead and die cut some of the Swirly Clouds and adhered them down, trimming off the part that hung over the edge.

For the back of the bookmark I heat embossed a sentiment from Honey Bunny Boo, mixing two of the fonts. I like the way the ‘bunny’ is so big and pretty! I added adhesive only to the top 1/2 inch of the bookmark, so that the two pieces could be sandwiched together and be used like a clamp. To finish off the bookmark I added white dots to the back side, and a dainty twine bow at the hole at the top. And that’s it for my project today! I hope you enjoyed it! I have a feeling this is going to be sent out in an Easter care package to one of my friends πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Hello!

Hi, everyone! It’s Cassie here from Creatively Cass and I’m back to share a cute card I made for the blog today! I absolutely missed the St. Patrick’s day window this year, but I still wanted to get a rainbow card in, and this is what I came up with.

I’ve had the Rainbow Wishes die set from Concord & 9th forever, and it was time to finally use it! I die cut some of the rainbow pieces out of the new Lawn Fawn card stock colors Pencil Eraser, No. 2 Pencil and Sage Leaf. I love these new colors and can’t wait to use them again! I also die cut some Heffy Doodle Swirly Clouds dies from a light gray cardstock. Then I used Black Soot Distress Oxide ink to darken up the bottoms of them a little.
I die cut the Stitched Cloud Backdrop die from white card stock and heat embossed some little stars all over the panel with gold embossing powder. I thought this added a cute touch to the background, without adding any competing colors. I also ink blended some Pumice Stone Distress Oxide in the corners and splattered a little bit of the color watered down for some more texture. I stamped out the cute little cat from the Mama Elephant set Book Worm and colored him in with my Copic markers. I kept the coloring really simple, and I love the way it turned out so soft. I popped everything up with foam tape and adhered it to the card base.
To finish off the card I heat embossed a simple hello from the Concord & 9th set All Year Long onto some black card stock. This too was popped up with some foam tape. The last little details I added were white gel pen on the rainbow, clouds and kitten. And that’s it for my card today! I hope you enjoyed it. I had fun making it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll see you again soon with another card πŸ™‚

 

Welcome Baby!

 

Hi everyone! It’s Cassie here, and I’m back today to share a cute card set I made using the adorable Dinky Dinos stamps. My sister helped me with the design of these ones (ok actually she basically told me what to do!) and I love the way they turned out!

Both cards were put together pretty much the same way, it’s just the colors that changed. To start I took two card bases that were roughly 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 and ink blended over them with the Stoney Maloney stencil. Then I used a die cut from kraft card stock over the stenciled card base to create a highlighted circle in the center.

Once that was in place I did some heat embossing. I stamped the ‘baby’ from Eggcellent News onto the stenciled background, and the ‘welcome’ onto some black card stock with I trimmed down into a banner.

Next I stamped out the dinos from the Dinky Dino stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers. As per my sisters instruction, I went with lovely pastel colors for them. They were each adhered down on to the card. Finally, I die cut some of the Swirly Cloud dies and placed them on the cards. And that’s it for my two creations today!

I think these turned out so adorable! I just love those Dinky Dinos and the Stoney Maloney stencil-especially how cute they look together! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed the cards. I’ll see you again soon with another card soon!

Hello My Friend

Hello, friends!Β  I’m back today toΒ  share another fun Heffy Doodle card with you all. Today I’m using lots of dies for this cute dino card. Let’s jump right in!

IMG_3196c

I started by die cutting the two tag pieces from the Tag Along dies. The full piece from white card stock and the frame from gray card stock. On the white full die cut I used the Rays the Roof stencil to create the rainbow of rays for the background. I also splattered some gold paint over the piece, as I knew I was going to be using more gold later in the card. I adhered the frame to the piece and tied some black and white twine through the hole at the top.

IMG_3197sc

The next thing I did was die cut one of the larger squares from the Stitched Square Dies set and ink blended some Broken China Distres Oxide ink over the entire piece. I also splattered this piece with gold paint and some of the Broken China ink for some texture and interest. I love to splatter everything!

IMG_3199ff

Next came a lot of die cutting! I die cut all of the different sizes of the Dino Prints dies from white card stock, vellum and gold glitter card stock. Then I arranged the dino prints die cuts all over the square. I heat embossed a sentiment from Whatcha Sayin’ on one of the tiny prints. Once all the footprints were adhered down I adhered the tag down as well with foam tape, and added the final footprints to the tag with the sentiment. Finally, I had one of the dinosaurs from Dino Time already colored and ready to go, so I adhered him to the tag to finsih it off! I love having pre colored and cut images just for that reason πŸ™‚ And my card was finished!! I hope you enjoyed the card I created today. It was heavy on the die cutting, which was fun for a change. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Birthday Overload

Hi, everyone! I hope you’re all have a great Thursday! I’m happy to be back sharing another Heffy Doodle creation with you all. Ever since the new release came out I knew I wanted to do something with rainbow robots! Finally I was able to make that idea into a card! Let’s take a look!

IMG_3059

I started the card by doing all my coloring. I stamped out all of the robots from the Bots of Love stamp set twice and colored them in with my Copic markers, making sure to get all the rainbow goodness! I also stamped and colored a couple other images including the pixel heart and a gear to be made into balloons! Then I fussy cut everything out and set it aside to work on the background.

IMG_3060

To create my background I took a piece of 110 lb white card stock and the Cogs and Code stencil and did some embossing with my die machine. Carefully, I arranged the stencil so the cogs would cover one corner at a time and ran it through my die machine using a sandwich that applied enough pressure to press the paper into the stencil and emboss the pattern into it. This is one of my new favorite techniques and I want to do it constantly! It adds such a fun element to a card. I also splattered some gold paint over the panel for some interest.

IMG_3061

I die cut the Birthday die cut from some paper that I had covered with the same gold paint that I splattered over the card panel, and layered it over two other birthday die cuts I’d done. I also heat embossed the ‘overload’ on some black paper and trimmed it down to a strip. Then I put the card together! The robots were added with foam tape, and so were the other elements I had stamped and colored. I attached the sentiment and my card was complete! I hope you enjoyed the card I made for today. I love a rainbow on a card, and these little robots areΒ too cute. Thank you so much for joining me today, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Programmed to Party!

Hi, everyone! I’m back today to share a fun card with you all! I tried using transfer gel to foil a stencil for this card, and I have to admit-I love the way it turned out!! Let’s get started!

IMG_2773.jpg

I started the card for today with the stenciling. I used transfer gel over the Love Circuit stencil. After applying a even layer and washing the stencil off, I let the gel dry for about an hour. That’s when I used my Minc to foil the pattern with some copper foil. I love the way this turned out, especially with this circuit image!!

IMG_27761.jpgNext, I did all of my stamping and die cutting. I die cut one of the Stitched Square dies, and die cut the stenciled piece down with one of the Stitched Circle dies. I wanted to make a smaller, square card so I picked sizes that worked for that. I also die cut four of the Party dies to be stacked together, and one of the banners from the Tag Along die set.

IMG_2775f.jpg

I heat embossed a partial sentiment onto the banner after coloring it with one of my Copic markers so that it matched the robot I stamped from the Bots of Love stamp set! I love the cute robots in this set! To add some interest to my stitched square I stamped some of the gears from the set with VersaMark, and added some splatter to it and the stenciled piece.

IMG_2776

To finish the card I put everything together with foam tape and glue, and my card was complete! Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you enjoyed the card I made, and I will see you again soon with another one!

There’s Gnome One Like You

Hi, everyone and welcome back! I’m sharing a fun card for Heffy Doodle today using some of their newest release products.

I’ve been loving switching it up from winter cards lately and making some springy type cards! Today’s card really could be for any time of year, but those cute butterflies and grassy scene have me thinking of spring! I started the card by die cutting a square from the Stitched Squares dies, and doing some stenciling over it. I used the Circles of Life Stencil for this! I went over it once with white pigment ink, and then shifted the stencil and went over it again with a aqua color. I made sure to let the white ink dry before adding the second layer. I love the detail this adds!

Once my background was done I went on to work on the scene of the card. I stamped out a bunch of the images from the Gnome Matter What stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers. I die cut them out, as well as a small circle from the Stitched Circles dies. I also used the Grassy Lass Border dies to create a little grass patch. I ink blended some green inks over this piece, and did a lot of splattering of the darker green as well as some white paint to give it some interest.


Next I arranged all of these elements on my card, centering them where the stencil naturally was centered. I didn’t make this right in the center of the card, but instead off to the right side. I also heat embossed a sentiment from the Gnome Matter What stamp set and die cut it with the Strips of Ease die set. This was attached to the card with some foam tape, and my card was complete! I hope you enjoyed this project for today! Are you making the transition to more springy cards too? Let me know! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Valentine’s Mini Series Day 5 & 6

Hi, everyone! I’m back to share days 5 & 6 of my Valentine’s Day mini series! I can’t believe how fast February has flown so far! I wasn’t planning on combining these days, but there’s not much time left until Valentine’s Day, so I figured I should get these cards posted!! πŸ™‚ Let’s take a look at today’s projects…IMG_2641

I created this card by doing some stenciling on kraft cardstock to gets some dreamy white lines using the Heffy Doodle stencil Barber Shop stencil. Then I stamped and colored some of the cuties from the Lawn Fawn stamp set Love You a Latte.

IMG_2642

Adding all of these elements along with a blue stitched heart to a card base completed this card! I think this is a great non traditional valentine, but could also be used for so many occasions!

IMG_2644c

For my next card I went really simple and stamped out some images from the Let’s Roll stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I trimmed them out and put them on a simple background that I had die cut with the Starburst Trio die from Your Next Stamp. I used Honey Bee’s alpha stamp set to create my own sentiment for this card.

IMG_2645

And that’s it for day 5 & 6 of the Valentine’s Day series! I hope you enjoyed these cards for today. I can’t believe that Valentine’s Day is on Thursday! I’m really not ready. Hope you all have a great day, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

IMG_2748I love so many products from this new release, but one of my favorites is the new Stitched Alphabetters dies. I love making my own sentiments and using them as focal points on a card. For today’s card that’s just what I did!

IMG_2749

I started today’s card by ink blending Blueprint Sketch and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink with the First Snow Stencil at the top to look like water. Then I sprayed the piece with water and white paint to give it some interest.

IMG_2751

I die cut all the letters I needed to spell out “hooked on you” for my sentiment, along with an extra ‘O’ to use for my hook. I also stamped out the cute little worm from Big Bug Hugs and colored him with my Copic markers. I also colored the ‘O’ with a gray Copic marker to be the hook and trimmed it, and the worm out.

IMG_2752

I added the letters to the water panel with foam tape, and attached a silver thread to the hook to be the fishing line. Then I added the worm and hook to the card with foam tape. I wanted a little extra something to add, so I found some white die cut hearts and glued them above the worm as bubbles. I just love how this card turned out!

Programmed to Party!

Hi, all!  Today I am sharing this card I made for the new Heffy Doodle release! I love the new Bots of Love stamp set. It’s got so many fun images and some really sweet sentiments. Let’s jump right in!

Today I decided to make a birthday card using the set along with some other Heffy Doodle products. I started by die cutting two stitched rectangles from the Stitched Imperial Rectangle dies in different sizes, one from gray card stock and the other from some white card stock. On the smaller, white rectangle I used one of the gears to stamp out a pattern with some rainbow inks. I used all Catherine Pooler inks for this, going through the rainbow. Luckily it worked out perfectly and I got through all the colors!

I adhered the patterned rectangle to the gray one with some foam tape and started working on the rest of the elements for the card. I stamped out one of the robots from Bots of Love, a speech bubble and sentiment from Whatcha Sayin’, and heat embossed the ‘programmed to party’ sentiment from Bots of Love. I like to try to do all my stamping and die cutting at the same time in an attempt to streamline the process! I colored in the robot with my copics, giving him a party hat to wear, and die cut everything out, including the heat embossed sentiment which I used the Strips of Ease die for. I also die cut out a circle from the Stitched Circle dies for my robot. I ink blended the ground and a sky by using a post it note and some Distress Oxide ink.

I adhered the circle and heat embossed sentiment to the card, and decided I wanted to splatter some ink over the card. I used white, blue and gray paint to add some more color. Then I added the robot and word bubble, finishing the card! I hope you enjoyed this card for today! I don’t know about you, but I think those rainbow colors are just dreamy!! Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!
