Heartfelt Blooms

It’s time to use any of those dies that you may have over at the Anything Goes with Dies Challenge on Happy Little Stampers. For this month, I decided to use a new stamp set called Heartfelt Blooms. I used my oval stitched dies for the sentiment. I really love how the Emerald Envy ink just pops with the Tip Top Taupe ink. It’s just beautiful! Hope you can join us in this month’s challenge.

I would love to know what your favorite color combination is. Leave a comment below and let me know.

Your Awesome

Have you ever bought a stamp set because it reminded you of something in your past. I have for sure! For this card, I used a stamp set called Epic Celebrations. This stamp set came with this pair of sneakers that reminded me of my Converse sneakers. I had a pair when I was a teenager and still have many friends that wear them today and Love them!

Did you have a pair or do you have a pair? If so, what color do you have? Let me know in the comments below.

Uniquely Stamped

I just became a member over at StampNation and the first challenge that I have decided to participate in is called Uniquely Stamped. You are suppose to use a stamp in a different way than what it’s intended for. So for this challenge after several attempts to figure out what I wanted to do I came up with the card below.

I started out by picking my color scheme. I knew I wanted to use Tip Top Taupe and Red. I then used a Catherine Pooler stencil called Mod Squared for my background. After trying different stamp sets and different layouts I decided to use a stamp from my SU Seaside Shore stamp set. I used the sea weed to make my flames behind my sentiment. (SU Bunch of Blossoms stamp set) I colored my flames in with my Zig Carmine Red. I also added a few sequins and added a couple of strokes of my clear Wink of Stella to give some of the flames a little sparkle.

Hope you all have a Wonderful week! Let me know what you think about my take on the uniquely stamped challenge in the comment section below.

Grateful

I don’t know about you but sometimes I don’t tell my friends how grateful I am to have them in my life. I think sometimes we just assume that they realize that we are grateful for them but why not take the time and let them know every once in a while. For this card, I decided to use the Freshly Made Sketch 281 to come up with my design.

I started out by finding a background piece of DSP paper and then added to it. I’ve used the Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series paper for both of my backgrounds. (behind my sentiment and the actual background) I then decided to use 3 of the colors in the paper for my banners. I’ve used Bermuda Bay, Whisper White and black. I added a little bling by adding 3 rhinestones to the banner.

Seaside Shore

Welcome back to the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge for the month of March. Be sure to play along with us as you have a chance to win a $15 Gift certificate. Can’t wait to see what all of you come up with.

For this month, I chose to use the Stampin Up! Seaside Shore Stamp set and the Shooting Stars Framelits Dies. I have to admit this is my first time making a card like this but I found it very easy to make. I know there appears to be quite a bit of stamping and coloring but overall the card doesn’t take to long to make. In fact, I made 9 of them for swap groups that I’m in.

To make this card I did the following:

  1. Started with my A2 size card base
  2. Cut out a piece of Black card stock 4″ X 5.25″
  3. Cut my Pool party card stock 3.75 X 5″
  4. Stamped my Bubbles (to make my background in Soft Sky)
  5. Stamped my sea weed with Momento Black
  6. Colored in my sea wood with Pool Party & mint macaroon (on the tips)
  7. Use my Circle slider frame lit to cut out the center and then stamped my sea weed and colored them
  8. I then used a piece of whisper white card stock to stamp my sentiment, fish, anchor, sea shell and star fish
  9. I then fussy cut each one out
  10. I used stampin dimensionals behind my bubble background layer in the corners and the center of my circle
  11. I used a circle punch (the size approx of a penny) to make the slider that would take the fish around the circle frame lit. I put a dimensional in between the two circles and one below the fish.
  12. I then applied the layers ( anchor, seashell, sentiment and starfish ) to my card. I did use stampin dimensionals for everything except the anchor.
  13. Lastly, I used my wink of stella to add a little bling to make images.
  14. For the inside of the card, I used my piece that was cut out to go around my sentiment and stamped sea weed at the bottom of my card. I added another fish to swim inside as well.

Please leave me a comment as I love to hear from all of you. Have a Wonderful week!

Jar of Thanks

It’s that time again, another Wonderful Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies. For this month, I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love Stamp set and dies. I started off by choosing my color scheme. I went with Mint Macaroon and Watermelon Wonder. I started off by using a stencil for background. I sponged it with both of the colors (Mint Macaroon/ Watermelon Wonder) and then started adding my layers. I stamped the jar and (3) flowers then added my sentiment (Thanks). After stamping, I then used my jar and flowers dies to cut them out. Once finished with this portion,  I carefully figured out where my jar would be and started stamping the branches.  I added dimensionals to the back of the jar to make it pop up and then added the pearls to the flower centers. I also, cut a piece of Watermelon Wonder ribbon for the bow on top of the jar.

You are Totally Awesome

It’s a new month over at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies and I’ve decided to use some new dies that I bought just recently. This set is called Rose Wonder and it had coordinating dies called Rose Garden Thinlits. I decided to start off by using another stamp set called Work of Art to stamp behind my Rose with Crush Curry. I then used my thinlet leaf die to watercolor the leaves with Wild Wasabi. I added a little crumb cake dots from my Gorgeous grudge set and then layered my die cuts over the areas in which I had added the color. For my sentiment, I decided to stamp with versa mark and then emboss the sentiment with gold. I also decided to add just a piece of washi tape to add a little more to the card.

Be sure to join in the fun and enter your cards or projects that use dies. You could win a $15 gift certificate from Happy Little Stampers.

Over the Rainbow

Thanks for joining me over at the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies this month. For this month, I decided to showcase a card that I made for my mom’s best friend Judy. My mom and July share the same birthday but were born in different years. They have been best of friends since I was about 3 years old. Judy loves colors so I thought why not showcase a beautiful rainbow on her card.

For this card, I used the following dies  MFT Rainbow die, Clouds dies and a sun die from Spellbinders. I used the Stampin Up! Marquee Messages Stamp set for the sentiments. Please leave me comments as I love to hear from all of you.

About the project that I decided to use my new Dies on. This card is for my Mother-In-Law who will be celebrating her 75th Birthday next month. She sews all year long, not as much as she use to but she’s always working on a project for someone.
