BRI - Happy Birthday Card Share

Hi everyone,

I'm here with the last post for March.  I can't believe that April is here already!  I'm certainly not complaining, I can't wait to see the buds on the trees and the birds are already back signing their lovely morning songs.

My card today was actually put together mostly with dies that were already cut and just sitting on my desk waiting to be turned into a card.  All except the happy birthday sentiment, I die cut those several times to give it the chipboard look.  And absolutely no stamping.

I used the WPlus9 Sunshine Layers Dies to create the frame and I popped that up on foam tape.  I used the rose from Paper Smooches as well as the Lawn Fawn scripty happy birthday die. 

For the back panel I used a We R Memory Keepers Next Level embossing folders and I have to say these are SO COOL!!!  I used the Quilted set and I can't get enough.  I used a 5.5 x 4.25 panel and embossed it and used Tombo Mono Multi glue to adhere it to the base as well as the rose and happy birthday die cuts.

That's it for me today.  Be sure to stop by the BRI Shop as there are more products than ever before!

Thanks for stoping by!

AAA Cards Game #61 - Stencil

Hi everyone,

I love stencils and how they can give you either a little or a lot to your projects.  They are versatile and you can make a stencil out of just about anything.  

Our sponsor for this month is Stampendous and they are offering a $20 gift certificate!

Now for my card.  I used the WPlus9 Sunshine layers die for the background panel.  I think this is my most used die I have.  Sometimes it's the focal point and sometimes it just adds the perfect finishing touch to your card.

I used a Heidi Swapp Stencil that I bought at Michaels and used an old Stampin'Up peachy colour that I had in my stash.  I then took the tag die from the Love Shower dies and cut out the tag from the piece I coloured and adhered that to the card base.  

I then took the Roses die from Paper Smooches and die cut it out several times to create a chipboard try die and I left in some of the middle pieces to give it some interest.  I used some iridescent ribbon from my local dollar store and added it with my TH tiny attacher.  I added some white thread and added that under the roses and added some droplets and clear sequins to finish the card.

Skipping Stones Design Stamp and Share - Colour Challenge

Hello everyone,

We are back with our monthly Stamp and Share and we have a colour challenge for you.

 Here is the colour inspiration photo for you to play along with us.  These colours are just gorgeous!

Here is the card I created and I started with the Uplifting stamp set.  I stamped the hot air balloon and coloured it in with my copics.  I fussy cut it out and I added some embroidery thread to attached the basket to the balloon.

I embossed the back panel with a cloud embossing folder and then cut it out with a frame die.  I took some blue ink that matched the challenge colour and added that to just the clouds with a sponge dauber.  I cut out he grass and hillside and added that to the back panel.  I popped up the frame with foam tape and added that to the card.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Versafine onyx black ink and popped that up too.  

To finish off the card I added some Wink of Stella and sequins.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to link up your project, we love seeing what you create!

Birthday Wishes - CASology Week 189 - Doodle

Hi everyone,

I found a bit of time to play along with CASology Week 189 - Doodle.  And just in time as it closes tomorrow!  

I recently received the Uplifting stamp set from Skipping stones Designs and there are the sweet little butterflies and I thought that it would make a great background.  

I coloured them in with my Zig Clean Colour markers and then cut out a panel with a Lawn Fawn 4bar stitched rectangle die.

I also cut out the white back panel with the WPlus9 Sunshine layers dies.  I have been using this on almost every card lately.  It's just the perfect subtle detail that just amps up the card without too much distraction.  

I adhered that panel to the card base and then I popped up the coloured panel on with foam tape to give the card dimension.  

I added some white thread and popped up the banner on foam tape as well and stuck it to the thread.  I did add a few little dots of multi matte medium so the thread wasn't all lucie goosie.  

I stamped the sentiment on to a banner that I die cut from the WPlus9 banners dies and used the sentiment from the WPlus9 Whole Lotta Happy stamps set with Memento ink and then I added some Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with Skipping Stones Design

Hello everyone!

I'm back to participate in the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog and Skipping Stones Design is a sponsor!

For my card I used the Funny Coffee stamp set and used my copics to colour in the take-out cup and added this cute little bow.  I found these at my local dollar store and I can't get enough of them.  I used the MFT scalloped square dies and the Simon Says Stamp stitched circle dies to cut out the patterned paper as well as the card front so you can see through the card.  

I popped up the cup with foam tape and added it to the front of the card. I found these lovely seed beads at my local Michaels in the $1.50 bins and I think I need to go back for the other colours because they are awesome!  On the inside of the card I simply have a happy birthday sentiment.  To finish off the card I added some sequins from Lucy's Little Things.  

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!

Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge 6

Hello everyone,

We are back with Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tack-Toe Challenge 6.

My three choices are Celebrate / Clean&Simple / Critters

My card today can work for either a new baby, new co-worker or new neighbourgh.

I started out with this panel that I made playing with my Misti and loved how it looked.  I took a stipe stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and there colours of SSS ink and did one strip in each colour.  I then took a rectangle die and cut it out the panel glued it to the base.  

I have to admit that I shopped my stash for this one.  I have SO many little things that are taking over my desk so as I was deciding which three elements to use for this challenge, I had this image that I coloured for The Daily Marker's colour challenge and the stupid panel was just sitting beside it.  So put them together for this card.  

I then took the scalloped square dies from MFT and cut out a panel and stamped the images onto that and coloured them in with my copics.  I then popped that up with foam tape and added some sparkling clear sequins to finish off the card.
