Eat, Drink and Be Merry

Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying your day, and for those who are celebrating Christmas that you’re having a lovely Christmas Eve! I’m popping in quickly today to share a card that is quick and simple. It’s perfect for that last minute card you need, and I whipped it together in no time.

I started by die cutting a stitched rectangle the size of an A2 size card from a piece of Penguin Palace’s Red Carpet card stock. This is a textured, heavy weight card stock that is the perfect red for Christmas cards-and I can’t wait to use it for Valentine’s day! Next I die cut some letters from the center in an arch. I die cut the word ‘merry’ and adhered the red piece of card stock to a card base. I made sure to save the inside pieces of the R’s to adhere as well.

Next I took the stamp from the Spooky Halloween set that said “eat drink and be spooky” and did some masking so that spooky was cut off and instead it read “merry.” I love being able to use my stamps in a lot of different ways, and this was the perfect mash up!

To finish it off I stamped and colored one of the sheep from Cuddly Sheep’s Season’s Greetings and fussy cut him out. I popped him onto the card with some foam tape and the card was complete! That’s it for my quick and simple card today! I hope you enjoyed it. Thanks so much for stopping by πŸ™‚ I hope you’re all have a wonderful holiday season!

Dare 2 B Artzy Card!

Hello, everyone! This month I have the amazing opportunity to be a guest designer for Dare 2B Artzy! I was so excited to get crafty with these stamps. I’ll have a couple cards to share with you this month using some of their beautiful products. Let’s jump right in to card one!

IMG_2337For today’s card I went with a CAS card. The bee from the Bee-utiful stamp set caught my attention, so I decided to create a patterned background with it. I stamped it using some Copic friendly ink and then colored each in with my Copic markers.

IMG_2366Next, I die cut a stitched circle from the lower right side of the card so that I could have a window for my sentiment. On my card base I stamped the “happy everything” sentiment from the set with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I wanted the window to pop so I ink blended some Broken China Distress Ink over the embossed words.

IMG_2364Finally, I put everything together!Β  For a finishing touch I added some Crystal Nuvo drops in black and yellow and that finished my card. I hope you enjoyed the card for today. I don’t utilize the smaller stamps in a set as often as I should, and this is a reminder to do so! I love pattern backgrounds. Thanks so much for stopping by! I can’t wait to show you what else I have created for Dare 2B Artzy!

Hi everyone! I’m popping quick today to share my project for the Your Next Stamp Challenge #98.
