I started by embossing the coolest triangle pattern in some copper cardstock. Then I die cut a tag and added some matching twine. I also cut a stitched circle and stamped a sentiment I black. I adhered all the pieces to a white card base. I loved how simple and clean and QUICK this card was. Definitely going to make more of these simple designs!

CAS Colours & Sketches Pt. 2

Hey everyone! I’m back with Part 2 of the CAS Colours and Sketches design team call. Here’s a look at my card and how I made it!

I started by masking of a strip on the bottom half of my card base and stamped some florals from W+9’s Doodle Buds stamp set. I white heat embossed them and did some ink blending with Distress Inks. Then I heat embossed the sentiment in black paper and added Wink of Stella. For a finishing touch, I placed 3 sparkling gems on the card. Hope you liked it and found some inspiration!!!

Hello crafty people! I made this card for the  Color Throwdown challenge- deep teal, cranberry, peach and kraft! I seriously love this combo! Here’s a look!

I started by masking off a circle along with a snowy hill so I could do some ink blending. I used Peacock Feathers and Barn Door Distress Inks. Then I used a wet paint brush to add some texture in the sky. I also added white dots to look like stars or snow. Then I stamped the sentiment on a curve to continue that circular shape. Finally, I stamped and die cut the presents and sled images from Lawn Fawn’s Toboggan Together and used my Copics and Zigs to color them in. Thanks for stopping by! Here’s the challenge!

CASology Cure

Hi guys! I’m here to share this adorable card made using a set from Newton’s Nook! I made this for the current challenge over at CASology. The theme is CURE. Hope you like it!

I started by doing all my stamping with SSS Intense Black ink so I could Copic color and watercolor my image. I die cut the colored panel and the patterned paper with some Dies from KatScrappiness.com and popped them on an A2 sized white card base. Here’s the link to the challenge! There’s still some time to play along!

CAS Colour & Sketches DT #1

Hey, everyone! CAS Colour & Sketches is having a design team call! Here is my card for part one of the challenge-COLOUR! Red, green, and copper were the colors. Everyone was going with Christmas, so I wanted to change things up a bit and go with a Halloween card! This set form The Sweet Stamp Shop worked perfectly!

I started by die cutting 3 different sizes of stitched squares from Kat Scrappiness for my card. Then I stamped the images on the smallest and used my Zigs to watercolor them in and my Copics for the stick. I used copper shimmer powder to color in the caramel on the apple. Then I popped up the small square on the vellum, then the vellum on my card base! This was a super easy CAS to make! Thanks for stopping by!

Coffee for CASology

Hi everyone! I’m here with a super shimmery coffee card! I got a stamp set from Whimsey Stamps for only $1! A DOLLAR!

I started by stamping the coffe pot in Versafine ink so I could watercolor. Then I white heat embossed the sentiment. I used a couple colors of Perfect Pearls to watercolor the coffee pot and some Distress Ink to color the coffee pouring out of the pot. I love the effect it gives to the sentiment and really makes it stand out. This was a super simple card but with all the shimmer it still packs a punch! Here’s the challenge link! Hope you play along!

Kat Scrappiness Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge

Hello, everyone! It’s been a while since I last posted here on my own blog- hopefully I’ll be back to posting more frequently soon! But today I’m here to share the card I created for the Kat Scrappiness Breast Cancer Awareness Card Challenge! There is lots of inspiration over at KatScrappinessBlog.com along with a sale, challenge, prizes, and our wonderful sponsor- Newton’s Nook!

Here’s how I made it! I started with a plain white panel and used my Stampoholic Nano to create a background using the Newton’s Support stamp set from Newton’s Nook. Then I stamped the main image from the same set using Simon Says Stamp ink so I could use both my Copics and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. After doing all of the coloring I stamped a sentiment and used one of the dies from Kat’s Stitched Square die set to create the rectangle panel. Yes!- you can create a rectangle using a square die! All I did was cut it once lining it up on the left side then again on the right to create the rectangle shape! I popped up both panels on a white card base. And of course I had to add a few of Kat’s sequins. I used the yellowish tan ones from the Aww-tumn Mix.

This was such a fun and meaningful card to make. I hope you go take a look at the other designer’s work using this set and check out the challenge! And please help spread the word about cancer! It effects so many people. Thank you to Newton’s Nook for helping with awareness!
