Hi!  It is Lisa here with you today and I have a bright way to cheer someone up...

To create this card I used the stars from the Birthday Bash Stamp set and stamped it in several bright colors.  I then stamped the cheers, glasses and arrows from the Scripty Sentiments Stamp Set onto a tag.  I layered this all onto my cardbase and finished it off with some matching sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by and see you 2017!
Happy Crafting!

Happy New Year

Good morning everyone! I hope you all are having a good week! It's Cassie, and I'm back with another card today. This time I made a cute New Years card. I can't believe Christmas is over and It's almost the end of the year. Time flies! Today's card uses the I Moose You card as well as the Party Pals stamp set.

I started this card by stamping the moose, banner, and party hat onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock in some Copic friendly ink. Then I colored them in with some New Years colors. I always think of gold, silver and black for New Years Eve celebrations. I love the way this turned out! I cut each of the images out and attached them to a card base. I also stamped the banner on either side of the center banner and drew in my own patterns instead of coloring them all. I really wanted the "happy" banner to stand out since it was part of the sentiment.
Next I used the "new year" from the Cardinal Greetings set to finish my sentiment. I also grabbed the confetti and stamped it in VersaMark all over the card and heat embossed them with silver and black embossing powder. And that finishes my New Years card!

I hope you enjoyed my card today! Thank you for stopping by. I hope you all have a great New Year, and have a happy start to 2017! I'll see you again with another card!

Happy New Year Card!!

Larissa here today to share a FUN New Year's Card!!
I hope you all had an AMAZING Christmas and are looking forward to a FABULOUS New Year!!?? I know I am!! I thought it would be FUN to use the SWEET Party Pals Stamp Set and the Half Tone Stencil to create a New Year's Card!!
Party Pals  Half Tone Stencil
I started by Stamping and Embossing the Images onto Distress Watercolor Paper and then Watercoloring them using some Distress Ink!! I had to do some Masking in order to make it look as though the SWEET Girl Image was holding the Banner!! I used some Masking Paper to Stamp the Banner Image and then Cut it out!! I Stamped and Embossed the Banner and then the Party Sentiment!! Then I placed the Banner Mask over the top of the Banner and Stamped and Embossed the Sweet Girl Image over the Top of the Banner!! I also Stamped and Embossed the arty Hat Image and then Fussy Cut it out after it was Watercolored and Dry!! I Die Cut the Image out using a Stitched Heart and then Die Cut a Stitched Rectangle to use as my Card Base!! I used some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to Ink my Stenciled Design onto the Stitched Rectangle Card Base and I LOVE the Disco-ish Pattern that it added as a Background for my Heart Shaped Focal!! I added the Heart Focal with some Fun Foam and also popped up Card Base Panel for even more Dimension!! Then I added some Sequins and some Glitter Pen to some of the Images and my Card was done!!

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS Last Week of 2016 and a VERY HAPPY New Year!!

Season's Greetings

Hello everyone,

Coralynn here with one last holiday card for 2016.  I can't believe its Christmas Eve already.  

For my card I used the ornament from the Trim the Tree set and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I watercoloured in the image and I'm really into splatter lately so I wanted to use it on my card today as well. 

I used the sentiment from the Cardinal Greetings set and stamped it using Versafine Onyx black ink.  I then die cut the panel and added it to the black card front.  

I want to wish you all a wonderful holiday season and get to spend time with family and friends.

Thanks for stopping by!

Deck the Halls

Hello!  It is Lisa here with you, and can you believe we only have 4 more sleeps until Christmas?!  Yay!  Any who I'm sharing a sweet and bright Christmas card today with all of you...

Isn't he just so cute?  This little guy comes from the I Moose You Stamp Set and I've used my new Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color him, and the background in.  Now I know this is kind of a Christmas card, so why did I make a spring background... well hey! Some places don't get snow at Christmas, so that's where this guy is... somewhere that it doesn't snow hahaha!  I then used the Banner Sentiments 2 Set for my sentiment and stamped it onto a banner die cut.  I finished it off with a bow in the corner from the Packaged Pretty Die Set.

I hope this card has brightened your day a bit and Happy Crafting!

A Mermaid Christmas

Good morning, everyone! It's Cassie here, and I've got a cute and fun card for you today! It's not a traditional holiday scene, but I think it's a fun one.
There aren't many steps to this card, as it's a one layer card, but the fun is in the coloring. I started by die cutting a stitched rectangle from some Neenah Solar White cardstock. Next I stamped all of the images you see here, from the Best Finfriends, as well as the sentiment from the Cardinal Greetings.
I drew in a line for the sand, and started coloring! I used my Copics to color in all of the little images. It didn't take long at all. The toughest part for my was the hair, but even that went pretty smooth. Once everything was colored in I took my Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink and blended color into the background so that I didn't have to color the entire background with my markers.
I wanted to add some snow to the scene, even though they are technically underwater. I used my white gel pen to add little snowflakes to the scene, and that was it! I hope you enjoyed this card for today! I'll see you again soon with another one!

A Latte Birthday

Hello everyone,

I'm here with a holiday themed birthday card.  I wanted to play along with the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog hop but just missed it.  

I love patterned paper and I have quite a bit of it for someone who doesn't know how to use it.  LoL!!  I saw this piece and I knew I had to use it because it's so adorable.  

I used the coffee cup from the Coffee Craze stamps and die set and coloured it in with my copics and then die cut it.  When you use the red copics they tend to bleed so I used the white gel pen to clean up the edges of the stamped image.  I then stamped and heat embossed a snowflake onto the cup as I thought it was missing something.  

I then took two sizes of scalloped rectangle dies and cut out a piece of the patterned paper and a smaller piece of white card stock and stamped the sentiment with black ink.  

I adhered the patterned paper to the card base and popped up the sentiment panel with foam tape.  I then added a bit of Wink of Stella to the cup and I thought I'd mix it up and add the cup with a small action wobble.  So it moves!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!

A Latte Holiday Cheer...

Hello!  It is Lisa here today and I am sharing a card I've created with some awesome Mint Owl Studio goodies for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop...

To create this card I stamped my coffee image in the center of a white panel.  Now for my sentiment I used the Coffee Craze Stamp set mixed with the Trim the Tree Stamp Set.  I then used Copic® Markers for the cup and a white gel pen for the dish.  To create a fun bokeh effect I used the circle images from the Trim the Tree Stamp Set and various light inks.  After I diecut the panel I layered it with some Wood Veener (thanks hubby!).

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Melting Over You

Good morning, everyone! It's Cassie, and I've got a CAS card for you today. I've been trying to use old sets in new ways and this weeks card is a great example of stretching your stamps. I used the I Cream, You Scream set to make this silly wintery card.
I started by stamping the three scoop ice cream cone on some Tim Holtz watercolor paper. I used a waterproof ink because I wanted to used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I also stamped my sentiment in the same ink.

Next I stamped a face on the top scoop and drew in a carrot nose and some coal buttons. I colored in the image-which went super fast-and then I created a watercolor background with a dark gray Zig Marker.
To finish the card I ran it through my die cutter with a stitched rectangle to add the stitched detail. I also added some white dots with a gel pen, and a couple white Nuvo dots. This card was so simple to make, and it's a perfect way to do some mindless coloring.

I hope you enjoyed the card I made for today! It's always fun to use stamps in a new way. It makes me feel like I have an all new set!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you again soon with another card!

Happy Holiday Shaker Ornament

Hello everyone,

Today I thought I would try and make an ornament.  

I die cut the hexagon frames with white card stock and did some ink blending with Mint ink.  I used some black shimmer spray and added some splatter.  I cut out the same frame from fun foam to create the shaker well and then added the acetate and the Mint Owl Sequins mix and a few seed beads from my stash and then another piece of acetate to form a see-through window.  Then I added another frame to the back to finish off the shaker. 

To make the hanger for the ornament I added some thick white thread and added it between the front panel and fun foam and added extra liquid adhesive.  

I used the sentiment happy holidays from the Trim the Tree set and heat embossed it with white embossing powder on to a piece of black card stock that I cut out with a banner die.

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you again soon!

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!
