April 2015 Simon Says Stamp Card kit

Hi guys! Today I’m here to share a card that I have made with the amazing April 2015 card kit from Simon Says Stamp. I’m so in love with this kit! It’s amazing.. Beautiful gold rub-ons, Washi, paper and more!

I have a monthly subscription for $24.95 +shipping. If you don’t want to subscribe they have it available for purchase on its own for $29.95+shipping on Simon Says Stamp’s website. Believe me though… The subscription is TOTALLY worth it! Here is my card.

I’m in love with the Washi tape included in the kit from Pink Fresh Studio. It’s available to buy in different colors but the kit came with this beautiful ombré from mint to peach with gold stripes…. STUNNING! I applied 3 or 4 strips of the Washi to some white cardstock making sure to line up the gold stripes. Then I ran the piece through my die cut machine with a Happy Die from Papertrey Ink.

I really love how it turned out. I’m going to use this technique a lot more to get more use out of the Washi I have been hoarding:) I added some enamel dots and a gold star brad included in the kit.

I had a lot of fun creating with these products…. I’m gonna make some more cards with this kit. Hopefully I have luck with the rub-ons. I tried some Heidi Swapp rub-ons recently and it didn’t go so well.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day and HAPPY CRAFTING!:)

Beep Boop Birthday

Hi there! I’m here to share a birthday card featuring Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.

image

I used the new Scripty Sayings stamp set to create the background using various inks (mostly Papertrey Ink). Then, I Copic colored one of the cute little robots from the  Beep Boop Birthday stamp set.

I die cut a circle from the front panel and used Peacock Feathers Distress ink to create a subtle background behind this cheery bot.

I think I have finally found my style in card making to be Clean and Simple with the occasional Distress ink messy goodness:).

Well that’s all for today, thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Clean and simple birthday card

Hi all… Today I will be sharing a card I learned how to make from Laura Bassen. She is a wonderfully talented and funny crafter who is on the Papertrey Ink design team, as well as several others. I enrolled in an AWESOME online class that Laura is instructing on a site called CRAFTSY. It has hundreds of classes you can take for all kinds of crafty things from papercrafts to quilting. I’m really impressed by this site and all that it has to offer. The class is called Vibrant Stamping: Creative Color Techniques.

And it was totally worth it! Here is my card.

The class is so interesting and technique driven.. Which I love. Also she teaches a little color theory. SO FUN!

I created a clean and simple card front with a Papertrey Ink stamp set trying to keep the colors in rainbow order. R.O.Y.G.B.I.V.  I had a lot of fun making this card and hope you guys check out the Craftsy site! Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY CRAFTING!

Old with the New!

Hi.. So for today’s card share, I was inspired by Simon Says Stamps Old and New challenge. You can enter the challenge here. I wanted to play with my new Julie Nutting stamps I got for Christmas. So I thought I would make a birthday card with a vintage feel. I used the Julie Nutting “Mindy” stamp by Prima.

image

Isn’t she pretty? This was my first time copic coloring hair and skin on a stamp as well. I have been practicing with my Lawn Fawn critters, but it’s totally different. I paper pieced her dress with some paper from Webster’s Pages. I can’t tell you how much fun I had dressing up this doll.

image

You can’t really tell in the picture, but the background is made from Tim Holtz’ Harlequin stencil and spritzed with a splash of Perfect Pearls mist. The adorable chipboard balloons came from Crate Paper The Pier chipboard sticker sheet.

I added some distressing along the edges, a few pearls and an enamel bow to finish it up.
