I Miss Our Chats

Hello, all! I’m sharing a quick and easy card that is too cute! I used some of my favorite Heffy Doodle stamps for this fun design. Let’s jump right in.

The first step I took for this card was to take the speech bubble from Whatcha Sayin’ Now and stamped it all over an A2 size card base with a light mint colored ink. I did my best to space them out somewhat evenly so that it looked like pattern paper. The trick is to make sure that some of the bubbles are over the edge. This makes the pattern look continuous.

Next I stamped out a bird from the Wingman stamp set with a Copic friendly ink and colored him in. I fussy cut him out and adhered him to the card base with foam tape. The final step was to heat emboss my sentiment. I used Worn Lipstick to color some white paper with and made sure it was completely dry before embossing the sentiment over it. Once that was done I trimmed it down and adhered it with foam tape as well.

Finally, I added white gel pen accents and used a Copic marker to add some dots in the background. And that was it! I hope you enjoyed my quick and simple card for today. I love putting these types of cards together. Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll see you again soon with another card!

My Hero Tag

Hi, everyone! It’s Cassie here, and I’m sharing a cute tag I made that would make anyone smile. Who doesn’t love to hear that they’re your hero?? Let’s jump right in.

I die cut the tag from the Tag Along die set. Then I ran the tag through my die machine with an embossing pad and the Starfall Stencil to get that fun and subtle  embossed background. It’s a little difficult to see in the photos, but really cute in real life. I also stamped out the cutie super hero from the Superdudes stamp set and colored her in with my Copics. I fussy cut her out and adhered her to the tag.

I went with soft colors to go with the gray tag. Then I added some silver dots with a gel pen. Finally, I die cut the My Hero word dies and adhere them on my tag. I think I’ll be sending this off to a friend who needs a pick me up this week! My finishing touches were to add white gel pen accents to the girl, and some black and white twine to the top. And that was it! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed the card! I’ll see you again soon with another one!

Hooray!

Hi, all! I’m popping in to share this cute and simple card I made for Penguin Palace today. I just had to use that cute little unicorn holding balloons to create a celebration card. The thing I love about this is that it could be used for so many different occasions! IMG_3580

I kept the design simple today and created a highlight on a card, and heat embossed my sentiment. This type of design is great for quick, easy to mass produce cards. I hope you enjoyed it! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Heffy Doodle & Chibitronics Collab!

Hi, everyone. I’m super excited to share a card I made for today’s post with you. It features products from both Heffy Doodle and Chibitronics! We were super lucky to be able to team up with the Chibitronics team and make some awesome cards for this hop. You can win a Chibitronics Starter kit and a £50 Heffy Doodle gift certificate! Two winners will be chosen May 6th 🙂 Here’s the fun card I came up with.

I started the card by planning out my circuit. This meant I drew a rough sketch of my card and then started creating the card. I used my Distress Oxide Sprays to create the background. This was fun, and super easy. I just sprayed Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber over an A2 card base and that was it! I let the sprays do there thing, and completely dry before I came back to die cut the hearts from it.  Once the hearts were die cut I took a piece of vellum and my Misti and stamped the hearts from Eggcellent News and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. Beneath the hearts is where I put my Chibitronics red light bulbs from the starter kit. The starter kit has everything you need to make your first light up design!

I made sure to get my copper tape circuit right where I needed it to be to get the lights to work, and did a lot of testing before I moved on to make sure I wasn’t going to run into any problems after the card was put together. Then I added foam tape around the battery and card base so as to give the battery room so that the lights weren’t on all the time.

I used the Grassy Lass border dies and Stitched Slopey Joes border dies to create some dimension below the volcano that I stamped from the Geology Rocks stamp set. I also stamped out all of the dinosaurs from the Dino Time stamp set. These cuties just go so well with the volcano-I couldn’t pass up using them to finish my scene!

I also couldn’t resist adding a speech bubble from the Whatcha Sayin stamp set for the T-Rex. Too cute! I finished the card by heat embossing the sentiment “I Lava You” and adhering it to the bottom of the card.

All right! That’s it for my card, but be sure to hop along to the rest of the projects and leave some comments for your chance to win! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my project and get inspired to make some cool light up cards 🙂 I’ll see you again soon with another card!

It’s Your Day!

Hello, everyone! Can you believe it’s almost the end of April?! We’ve been getting the typical “April showers” weather and it actually feels like spring at least! This year is already flying 🙂 I’m back today to share a card I made for Penguin Palace. I wanted to make a birthday card for someone that was chalk full of mermaids, and here’s what I came up with.

IMG_3554

I stamped and colored in mermaids from the Take a Break, Get Well Soon, and Let’s Catch Up. Instead of using the coordinating dies, I fussy cut each of the images so that there was no white border when I added them to the background I went on to create.

IMG_3558

I ink blended Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink onto a piece of A2 size paper. Then I adhered all of the mermaids to the panel after splattering it with water and paint and letting it dry. Then I die cut the It’s Your Day die and used the letters to create the sentiment. I used foam tape to adhere them for some dimension.

IMG_3559

To add some fun I added a bunch of Nuvo Crystal Drops to the card in multiple colors and white gel pen details to each of the images. I hope you enjoyed the card for today! I hope you’re having a good week, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Bee Day Wishes

Today I’m sharing a cute punny bee-day card using the super sweet Big Bug Hugs stamp set!

Hi, everyone!  I’m happy to be sharing another card with you today. I started the card for today by working on the background. I used the Barber Shop stencil and my Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink to create the stripes. After ink blending the color on, I smooshed some of the ink on my glass mat in Fossilized Amber and Walnut Stain, watered it down and then used a paintbrsh to flick splatters over the panel.

I set the panel aside to dry and started working on the other elements of the card. I stamped out the bee from Big Bug Hugs with some chocolate brown ink that is Copic safe. I’ve been loving stamping with brown ink lately. It’s a dark brown color, so it isn’t super noticeable, but I love the subtle change it brings. I colored all the bees in with my Copic markers and die cut them out with the coordinating dies. Because I stamped the bees in brown I decided to bring in more brown and die cut my letters from the Stitched Alphabetters dies from brown card stock. They were adhered directly to the card panel. Then I die cut the Wishes die from white card stock three times and glued them all together for some dimension. I adhered that just below the letter dies.

One last piece of die cutting I did was to use all the little tiny shape dies from the Tag Along die set. I cut them from the same brown card stock and adhered them around the card. The bees were adhered with foam tape to the card, to give some added dimension. The final touch was to add some yellow Crystal Nuvo Drops. And that was my card for today! I hope you all enjoyed it. Who else loves creating their own sentiments with alphabet dies and stamps?! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I’ll see you again with another card!

You Inspire Me

Hi, all! Happy Tuesday. I’m popping in quickly on this busy Tuesday to share my card for Penguin Palace! I needed a bright and cheery card and this is what I came up with.

IMG_3509 - Copy

I love the Let’s Get Crafty stamps! There are so many sweet ways to use this set to send to your crafty friends. I stamped out a sentiment from the set as well as the little painter and bucket of paint brushes and colored them in with my Copic markers. I also ink blended the edge of a card base with rainbow Distress Oxide inks, and trimmed down my panel with the sentiment so that it was visible when I layered them. Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’re having a great week. I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Hip Hip Hoo-ray!

Today I’m sharing a cute birthday card highlighting the Hootiful stamp set and some awesome Heffy Doodle dies!

Hello, crafty friends! It’s Cassie here, and I’m back today to share a birthday card I made for someone in my family. I wanted it to create a cute night sky with the scalloped die from the Clover Frames die set, as well as the Stargazer Backdrop die. I started by die cutting the Stargazer die first. Then I die cut the scalloped rectangle from it. By doing that die second I was able to be more precise about where the stars fell around the edge of the rectangle. Once the piece was cut out I was able to ink blend over the piece of card stock. I used Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans and Peacock Feathers to create the night sky. I splattered some of each other colors over the panel, as well as some white paint. Then I set it aside to dry.

Next I stamped out images from the Hootiful stamp set as well as the Party Palooza stamp set to create my scene. Everything was colored in with my Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I adhered everything down with some liquid adhesive, adding some cute gel pen details to the images.

I stamped out the sentiment ‘hip hip hoo-ray’ from the Hootiful stamp set and trimmed it out with the smallest Strips of Ease die. That was also adhered down to the card with liquid adhesive. I had some of the stars on my desk from die cutting the Stargazer Backdrop die and decided to adhere them around the outside edge of the card for some added texture and detail. And that was it! Birthday card complete! I hope you enjoyed the card I created for today. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I’ll see you again with another card!
