INTRODUCING…

Hey guys! I have some super exciting news! I am back on YouTube!!! I have a couple videos up from a while ago but these new videos are going to be a lot different. The videos I will be doing are going to be all about fun! No instructions on what to do or how to do a technique. Jennifer and Kristina can show you much better than I can. So every video is going to feature myself and a special guest- this time its my girlfriend, Cheryl. We are going to randomly choose a stamp set, die set, and a card designer as inspiration. So no planning, sketching, or anything before hand. If you watch it please let me know what you think and any suggestions for the future videos! Thanks!

Ahoy, Matey!

Hi everyone! I’ve got a really fun card to share! It’s super CAS and I really love it. I used the colors from the current challenge at Color Throwdown.

I instantly thought of doing a water themed card when I saw the palette. So check it out-

I started by grabbing coordinating colored Distress Ink cubes and laying down some color in a wavy pattern. Then I added the most adorable little ship from Ahoy, Matey by Lawn Fawn. A sentiment stamped in black finished it off.

Glitter Hugs

Hi guys! I have a very classy and sparkly card to share today. I used the current sketch over at MFT as inspiration.

I thought the rectangle frame frame would be perfect for a shaker! So here it is-

I created the frame using two Kat Scrappiness double stitched rectangle dies. I knew I wanted it to be black, but I still wanted to keep the stitching details white. So I cut it from white cardstock and ink blended Black Soot which didn’t get into the stitching lines. Some acetate a foam tape completed the shaker portion. I backed it with some black and white paper from MFT. Some gold and glitzy sequins from KS and diamonds from Honey Bee make for quite the mix. A die cut heart, also from KS, was the perfect stage to show off the HUGS die from MFT cut with glitter paper.

I Can’t Belive It’s Butterfly

Hello everyone! I’m back with another card to share with you guys. This time I used a sketch from (CAS)E This Sketch and  the center column from the new Tic Tac Toe challenge.

The sketch is perfect for a clean and simple card. But 6 out of the 9 square in the Tic Tac Toe board really caught my eye and I wanted to create a more layered country inspired card this time around. Check it out-

I used my newly newly beloved woodgrain embossing folder on a white cardbase before layering on a twine bow. Then a stitched rectangle layer clear heat embossed with a beautiful butterfly image from Crafter’s Companion was added. Finally, a white heat embossed sentiment finished it off. This is typically not my style of card, but I absolutely love it! Look out for more of this style from me soon!

Thanks for stopping by!!

CASology Home

Hey guys! I have another card to share with you today! The current cue card at CASology is HOUSE, so I created this fun card featuring a homey sentiment.

DT members Jen and Rachel really influenced the design with the layout and colors. Check it out!

I used some whimsy letters and a house from W+9 to spell out HOME. I trimmed out the word after coloring the house and layered into a kraft cardbase. Some white pen stitching detail finished it off (there’s stitching above the layer but the angle of the picture is hiding it).

IMG_6148I started by creating the shaker portion of my card. I used the Rope Embossed Circle Dies from Kat Scrappiness to create the window to show the brand new Madison Avenue mix and Clear AB Solid Stars Sequins. I added a grass die and a blue sky using Distress Inks. On the grass, I stamped “I move” from the Interactive Card Directions Set using Versifine Onyx Black. Then I added Lola the Giraffe with a brad behind her head so she can swirl around the shaker window. This makes it double the fun and double the interactive cardiness! How awesome is that?! I Copic colored Lola and fussy cut her out. A simple brad attached to the center portion of the car allows her to spin around on the card.
