I used the super adorable Crafters Heart stamp set from Trinity along with Unbearable Without You and Quill You Be Mine stamps from Heffy Doodle. It was so fun to color in all these images in the Crafters Heart image. What a fun set for us crafty peeps!

My next card was made using a super fun stencil from Trinity called Heartburst. I used the cute girl stamp from Trinity with the Quack Me Up stamps.

Spellbinders Embossing Folders

Hi, everyone! I’m popping in quick today to share a couple of cards I made using the new Spellbinders embossing folders. These fun new folders embossΒ  andΒ  shapes that are die cut from the paper! They are so fun. Here’s a look at my first project.

IMG_4338

I just love the detail it adds to the design. The Delhi design was so fun to add color to. I loved how there were so many different patterns. I ink blended colors across the paper to add even more depth to the design.

IMG_4332

I went a little more simple for my second card. I cut/embossed the Sedona embossing folder from kraft card stock and added a simple sentiment to it. I also added some white paint splatter to tie in the white peeking through from the die cut. How cute is that??

Be sure to head over to the Spellbinders shop to see all the fun designs! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Spellbinders Bold Type Collection

Hi all! I’m back to share some fun projects using the new Bold Type Collection by Spellbinders! When I saw these fun word dies I just loved the bigger size as well as the unique texture layer to them πŸ™‚ There are so many fun projects you could make with these dies, but of course my mind went straight to card designs!

IMG_4325

In my first project I wanted to show how cute it is to layer the two sizes of word dies. Each set comes with a regular word die, and a version with striped embossing marks on them. For this card I did some washi tape stripes and ink blended on some color to a pink card base. Then I die cut my words and adhered them together with glue.

IMG_4329

In this photo you can really see the line detail. The word dies are simple, and can be used on their own or combined with other products. In this card design I went with the Die D-Lites Bold Type Happy Day Etched Dies. I love the phrase “happy day” and feel it’s perfect for so many occasions!

IMG_4311

I also love covering a card base with die cuts and ink blending over it, which is what I did here. I die cut the textured version of the Die D-Lites Bold Type Hello Etched Die and adhered it all over an A2 size card base. Then I ink blended Distress Oxide ink over the front to give a rainbow effect.

IMG_4313

I also layered up the regular “hello” from the set and put it at the center of the card in white to really give it a focal point. I love how soft and pretty this one turned out.

IMG_4317

I wanted to do something a little more glittery for my last card, so I combined some of the techniques I used in the last two cards. I used some washi tape to ink blend the triangles onto a card base, then I started die cutting my sentiment. I created my own glitter paper with some sticky paper and loose glitter and die cut the Die D-Lites Bold Type Thank You Etched dies from it. I also die cut the same dies from vellum and adhered them together with glue.

IMG_4318

The sentiment was adhered to the card and it was complete! It has the best of both worlds πŸ™‚

I had so much fun working with these dies and I think they will be awesome for so many projects. Which phrase from the new release is your favorite? Mine has to be Happy Day, followed closely by Smile! Thanks so much for stopping by today to see my projects!! I hope you enjoyed them and I hope you’ll come back soon to see more crafty fun!

Your Next Stamp Challenge

Hi all! I’m popping in today to share my card for the latest Your Next Stamp challenge. This week’s theme was a good one for me. It was “Inside and Out” – decorate your card inside and out! I almost never decorate the inside of my card… I even have a hard time remember to stamp a sentiment in the inside a lot of times! So, this was a great challenge to get me to remember how fun that can be. Here’s a look at my card:

IMG_4289

I used the new Rounded Panel Shapes dies to create a window to stamp the Piggy from Pigs Can Fly in. I also used the Puffy Cloud Panel die to add some cute clouds so it looks like he’s floating through the sky πŸ™‚

IMG_4298v

I used the Shapes Panel dies to stamp “congratulations” on and attached it across the window. Then I stamped the inside sentiment behind the banner so that it isn’t seen when the card is closed. I loved adding some fun to the inside of my card! Do you always decorate the inside of your cards? Let me know! And be sure to play along with the challenge by getting all the details on the Your Next Stamp blog! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Your Next Stamp Challenge

Hi all! I’m popping in quick today to share the latest Your Next Stamp challenge with you. This round the team made cards inspired by the theme “share the love.” IΒ love me some pizza, so I knew just the stamp set I wanted to use πŸ™‚

IMG_4185

I just love all the elements in this card. I used washi tape to create my ink blended stripes, and some adorable dies from Your Next Stamp as well as the Carnival Foods stamp set to finish it off! Be sure to check out the YNS blog for all the details on how you can join in on this challenge and see the rest of the inspiration! Thanks so much for stopping by today πŸ™‚

Heffy Doodle Blog Hop!

 

Hi, all! Welcome to my stop of the Heffy Doodle blog hop! You likely came here from Ali’s post, but if you haven’t seen all the stops along the way be sure to start at the beginning with the Heffy Doodle post!

R8_BlogHop23Jan-01

I’m excited to share a project I made highlighting new release products! All the Heffy Doodle products work so well together so I had to sneak in some oldies πŸ™‚ Let’s jump right in!

IMG_4183

I started the card by die cutting the second largest of the Stitched Heart Dies from a piece of white card stock. Next I took the Quilted Heart Background Die and die cut the heart again with that background die so that it got the quilted pattern. I ink blended some Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink over the die cut piece and added some splatter. While I had the Shaded Lilac ink out I also splattered a white A2 size card base.

IMG_4181

I often have colored images all ready to go and this was the case today. I fussy cut a couple images I had stamped and colored from the Otter Side stamp set. I adhered the images to the heart and adhered that to the card base.

IMG_4182

Finally I stamped the sentiment from the Otter Side stamp set with black ink, highlighting part of it with the Shaded Lilac ink. To finish off the card I added a couple white gel pen accents, and that finished off the card!

I hope you enjoyed the card I came up with πŸ™‚ Be sure to check out at all the blog hop stops and leave a comment on each post to be entered for the prize of a Heffy Doodle t-shirt, pencil and Β£50 voucher to the Heffy Doodle store!!

Spellbinders November D-Lites

Hi all! I’m sharing this cute card I made using the adorable November D-Lites. I created a simple card using the cute Floral Hi dies, which are detailed but easy to use!

IMG_4130.jpg

I die cut the pieces from the set, colored them with my colored pencils, and added the whole piece to a stamped background! Simple! Thanks so much for stopping by to see my card, and be sure to check out the rest of the November D-Lites dies from Spellbinders!

MFT Stamps Sketch

Hi everyone! I’m back to share my card for the latest MFT sketch. It’s another fun sketch this week that is versatile. Here’s what we’re working with!

IΒ  used some of the new release to create a get well card. I love the cute girl from Doctor’s Orders. I knew right away I wanted to use her for this card.

IMG_4031.jpg

I used a stencil to create a cute banner on the side of the card. I colored the doctor in with my Copics and heat embossed a sentiment from the same set. I love the look of colored ink on kraft! So cute. Be sure to head over to the MFT blog and see the rest of the inspiration for the sketch, as well as see how you can play along.

I’m so thankful to My Favorite Things for asking me to join them for the month! It’s been so fun! Thanks for stopping by today, and I’ll see you again soon with another card πŸ™‚

IMG_4014

I also stamped out a sentiment from Elfing Christmas Words and heat embossed it. Final touches were adding some white gel pen accents and black and white twine.

IMG_4009

I just couldn’t wait to use these cute giraffes from the latest release called Giraffes on Ice. I paired it with the Snowy Hillside dies and the Winter Stencil Strips to create some chunky snow.

IMG_4006
