How Did You Get So Old?!

Hello!  It is Lisa here with you today and I have a sarcastically funny Birthday card to share with you that I made using a mix of stamp sets...



To create this card I started by stamping my sentiment from the Snarky Birthday Sentiments set in the upper left corner.  I then stamped the dinosaur and crutch from the Get Well Critter Stamp Set on the same panel and die cut the bottom at an angle.  After I colored my little scene in with various Copic Markers I decided he needed one more thing... a birthday hat!  So I grabbed my Party Pals set and stamped a little hat to cut out and add to the top of his little head.


I find it so fun to mix and match old and new sets, because you never know where it might lead!

Happy Crafting!

Have A Sweet Christmas

Good morning, and happy Tuesday! I hope you're all having a great week. It's Cassie here, and I've got another holiday card t share with you. I had made this one a while back and just realized that I never posted it.

I started by stamping the branch from the Cardinal Greetings onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I took my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and drew over the branch and pine needles. I also stamped the donut from Sweet Treats three times below the branch and colored them in with my Zig Markers. The background was made using the markers too.
I die cut a banner from some more Bristol Smooth cardstock and heat embossed a sentiment I made using two different sets. Half of it comes from the Sweet Treats set, and the other part is from the Cardinal Greetings set. I ink blended Lucky Clover Distress Ink over the banner and splattered it with water to make the splotches.
I attached the banner with foam tape, added some glossy accents and white gel pen sprinkles to the donuts and the card was complete!

I hope you guys enjoyed this card! It was a fun one to make. Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you  again soon with another card!

Holiday Greetings


Hello everyone,

I'm back with another holiday card and it was pretty easy to put together.  This would be a good one to mass produce.

I used the reindeer from the Deer Santa stamp set and I just stamped out his head and coloured him in with my copics.  I then fussy cut him out and went around the edges with a black marker to them up.



 I then cut out the circle in the middle of the card and after I used a triangle die to cut out the panel.  I then used a piece of grey kraft card stock cut out another panel with the scalloped rectangle and added it to an A2 sized card base. I cut out a little piece of patterned paper and added it behind the circle.  I then popped up the front panel with fun foam and added foam tape to the reindeer.  And as usual I forgot to stamp my sentiment.  So luckily I used fun foam so it stamped nicely.  I used the Cardinal Greetings stamp set with black ink.






To finish off the card I added some sequins from the Mint Owl Mix.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!

His and Her Gift Card Holders



Hello wonderful crafty friends!  It is Lisa here with you today sharing some cute his and her Holiday Gift Card Holders.  I don't know about you, but I tend to have quite a few gift cards to give out during the Holidays and I always want something cute to give them in, so the recipient still feels like they have something to open, you know what I mean?  And I think these little guys are just the thing...


To decorate my gift card holders I used the Packaged Pretty Die Set for the front with Fancy Pants Patterned Paper.

For the back of my gift card holders I used the Mini Banner Die Set and adhered them on their side before stamping my sentiments from the Banner Sentiments 2 Stamp Set.

Yes, this is a super easy project, but isn't that just what we need during the Holidays when we can't seem to find enough time for anything?  Love it!

Happy crafting and thanks so much for stopping by!

Dear Santa,

Good morning everyone! It's Cassie here, and I feel like it has been forever since I have posted a card, which is silly since I was just here last week. Thanksgiving and the long weekend were both amazing, and I hope yours was as well. I'm here with a bit of a different holiday card t share with you.
I made this cute and non-traditional colored card for the cutest new addition to our extended family. First Christmas's are so exciting, and having another little cousin has given me a new look on card making. For this card I stamped the dump truck from the Under Construction stamp set on some Neenah Solar White paper. Then I took a pencil and drew in a string of lights on the top of the truck. I love the idea of going through my MOS stamps and picking images that could be presents you'd find wrapped up at the holidays, and this truck would be perfect for that! I used a Copic Multiliner to draw in the lights and string, because I knew I wanted to color the image in with my Copics. Once I had colored it in I fussy cut the image out.
I stamped the present from Dear Santa all over the bottom half of a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with a waterproof black ink. Then I took my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and colored them in to match the truck and lights. It's a very different color combo-especially for a holiday card, but I think it works. I splattered white paint over the top of the presents and set the piece aside to dry. Once it was dry I attached it to the bottom of my card base.
I took another piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and cut it down to fit the card base. I die cut a stitched scalloped edge on the bottom so my presents would show and stamped it with the "dear santa," sentiment from the Dear Santa set. I attached it to the top of the card base. My last step was to die cut a stitched circle to highlight the truck. I scribbled a blue Zig marker on it and evened it out with some water. Once it was dry I attached it above the sentiment with some foam tape and did the same with the truck. I added a little sparkle to the lights with my Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen, and the card was finished!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my card, and I'll see you again soon with another one!
