CFC#185 -- Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

Thursday, October 19, 2017

Happy Friday friends. There's a new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and this week, we want so see lots of pink on your projects in honor of breast cancer awareness.

For my card today, I started by heat embossing the beautiful Full on Floral image with white embossing powder. I then added some pink ink over it. I then heat embossed the sentiment which is from the Dream Then Do stamp set. I adhered it with some glue behind the words and then added some enamel hearts for a bit of embellishment and to also hold the vellum just a bit more.

Thanks so much for visiting today. I do hope you will stop by the challenge blog to see what my teammates have come up with. And if you choose to play along with us the next couple of weeks, you just might win a $50 gift certificate to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

2 Foiled Cards for TupeloDesignsLLC

Thursday, October 19, 2017

Good morning friends. I have two cards to share with you today for TupeloDesignsLLC. They both use a fun stamp set and stencil from MFT and some beautiful foil from Deco Foil.

For my first card, I started by adding some Transfer Gel over the Framework stencil from MFT with a palette knife. After it was dry, I added some rainbow foil over top of it and ran it through my Mini Minc machine.

I then stamped 3 of the sentiments from the More Essential Sentiments stamp set and trimmed them down and adhered them onto my card panel. I added some clear confetti and this card is complete.


For my second card, I did the exact same steps as above but this time, I used some beautiful pink foil. And instead of clear confetti, I added some White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops.



Many Thanks for Whimsy Stamps

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Hi friends. My card today uses some fun products from Whimsy Stamps

I started out by doing some ink blending with various Distress Inks onto some scraps of Bristol Smooth card stock that I then spritzed with water for added texture. I then die cut my flowers and leaves from them using the Peony Flower dies from Whimsy Stamps. I absolutely love these dies. 

Before I attached these to my card base, I stamped the sentiment which is from the Scripty Occasions stamp set. I then decided that a bit more texture was in order so I stamped one of the images from the Lovely Lavendar set.

I then added my flowers, some with regular adhesive and some with foam tape. I curled up some of the petals to add additional dimension.  Lastly, I added some Nuvo drops into the center of each of the flowers for an added touch.

I hope you've enjoyed today's card. Thanks so much for stopping by today. Crafty hugs!

Dog Sympathy Card for Whimsy Stamps

Sunday, October 15, 2017

Hi friends. I'm back today with a card for Whimsy Stamps. Over the last few months, Whimsy has released a few stamp sets for pet sympathy and they've come in so handy this year. Unfortunately, I've needed a few of these types of cards.

For my CAS card today, I started by stamping the paw print image from Furever in Our Hearts onto my card panel. I then stamped the dog image and the sentiment from Irreplaceable Friend onto a panel die cut with one of the dies from the Hand Stitched Rectangles. I popped this up with foam tape, rounded the bottom two corners and this card is complete.

3 cards with Neat & Tangled for TupeloDesignsLLC

Friday, October 13, 2017

Welcome friends. I'm sorry it's been so quiet on my blog for the past week or so. I was out of town teaching at the Whimsy Stamps retreat in Florida and then came back and promptly came down with a nasty cold. Blech.

I have 3 cards to share with you for TupeloDesignsLLC, all using some fun products from Neat & Tangled.  All 3 cards use stencils with some sort of embossing paste along with stamped and die cut sentiments.

For my first card, I started by taking the Pentagon stencil and applied some Ranger Texture Paste over it. I then stamped and die cut the sentiments from the Love Notes stamp set and coordinating dies.



For my second card, I used the Hexastar stencil with some Bo Bunny Gold Glitter Paste. I used the Celebrate stamp set and coordinating die for the sentiment.


My last card uses the Geometric Blooms stencil with the same Bo Bunny Gold Glitter Paste and the Love Notes stamp set and coordinating dies.







October Whimsy Stamps Release Day

Saturday, October 7, 2017

Welcome friends. It's the Whimsy Stamps release day and all the new products we've been showing you the last week are now available in the store now.

Before you go shopping, I have 3 cards to share with you today.

For my first card, I took various colors of Color Burst powder in blues and purples and created this fun background. After my panel was dry, I then white heat embossed the beautiful Snow Flurry Background onto it.  I finished off the card with an embossed greeting from Abstract Christmas along with some sequins.


For my second card, I used the Snow Flurry stamp set and gold heat embossed some of the images and a sentiment onto a background that I made using some various Distress inks in shades of blue. I'm sorry for the poor photo. I was having a hard time with the glare at the bottom.


For my last card, I started by heat embossing some water color card stock with the Snow Flurry Background set. I then sprayed the panel and added various shades of gold paints.  I heat embossed the focal image from the Peace Joy Love stamp set onto some vellum and then added it over a circle cut the same size of white card stock. Some twine finishes off the card.
