Lots of Love...

Hello friends! Cheryl here today, with a card using one of the newest stamp sets just released.
I LOVE THIS STAMP SET!!! And I hope you do too. So here's my card.


I love lilacs for one thing, and for another....how great is this image?! So I got out my Tombow Markers and set out to coloring this pretty flower. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and embossed with black embossing powder. I stamped and embossed the vase on velum. I then sent it to my Brother Scan n Cut and it cut it out just perfectly. I even did it after it was all colored and it didn't make one mistake! I love this machine that much that I dare to do that, lol. I did two of them and then arranged them as I liked on the A2 sized card base. 


I used a piece of paper from Lawn Fawn's Watercolor Wishes paper pad, one of my favorites!!! Great watercolor papers with no fuss, lol! I stamped and embossed the sentiment in black and scattered around a few sequins. I got out my Viva Decor pearls and dotted around a few pearls and set aside to dry. I then added the entire piece to a heavy weight cardstock base. And that was it!

So, where do you get this set? You get it here. Check it out, and so many more awesome things!

Here's what I used.


So, get your craft on and make something pretty of your own. And check out the store for some really great crafting supplies. Thanks for coming by!

Don't Flip Out...

Hey there, Cheryl here...thanks for coming by! I have a card today using one of the BRAND NEW dies from KatScrappiness. Her very own dies! And they're adorable!!! Check out what I did with the Stitched Dolphin Dies.



I started out by playing with some Distress Oxide Inks in Broken China, Faded Jeans, and Cracked Pistachio and created a watery looking background. I went back and forth numerous times till I got what I was hoping for...never know with water, lol! I then cut the piece with a KS Embossed Large Nested Rope Dies. I arranged the two KS Stitched Dolphin's Dies where I wanted them and ran through my Big Shot. I added acetate on the back side and created wells to fill with seed beads from my stash. I chose a clear glass color. Then added foam tape and covered over the wells with more acetate. That's the best way for me to keep them in and line up the card front easier to the card base.


I didn't want to  just throw away the dolphin cut outs, so I cut again with a pearlized ivory colored cardstock and offset them just a bit. I added foam squares to the backs right behind the head and used liquid glue at the tails. It appears they're jumping off the card front, lol. I offset these enough to see the shaker bits from underneath. I love the sound of shakers as much as seeing the bits shake about, lol. I added a black sticker dot for the eyes.


I then took a piece of the same pearlized cardstock and die cut using the same rope dies only a smaller one. I then lined it back in the die and shifted it to get a square and did a partial die cut. I chose a blue ink to match the background and stamped a sentiment from my stash that I thought fit nicely with the theme of the card. I popped it up with foam squares.

I then went in with some KS Blue Waters Jewels Sequin Mix and the muted silver color from the Sangria Masquerade Sequin Mix  and scattered them about. I also added a few drops of Grey Mist Nuvo Jewel Drops  here and there to look like water drops. I finished by brushing a bit of  Clear Overlay Sparkle Marker by Spectrum Noir to add a bit of glimmer to the dolphins. I then added the entire piece to an A2 size card base of Neenah Solar White in the 110 pound weight.

And that's it. Hope you like my project and will head over to KatScrappiness  and check out the supplies I linked above and find lots more awesome things! Happy shopping and happy crafting!

From the Zoo…



Hi again, Cheryl here with another project to share.


 Today I’m working with a Gerda Steiner stamp set called Party Animals. Such cute images! So, I got out my Oxide Inks and did some ink blending and then used one of KS Stitched Heart Tag Dies. I cut one from the ink blended cardstock and four more from just white.
 You can see I only want the area with the heart with some above and below.

 

I then glued the four together to create the shaker well. Add a piece of acetate and trim so it doesn’t show. Then glue this to the back of the main, ink blended piece. Trim anything that shows from the front. Fill with your shaker bits and glue another piece of acetate to the back to keep it all in.

 

I added foam tape to all the other areas. I then stamped my sentiment onto some vellum and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I also colored and cut out my cute alligator with Distress Markers and cut out with my Brother Scan N Cut 2. I added foam squares to the back of the little guy.


I picked out the leaf shaped sequins and made a little cluster with a regular sequin in the center to resemble flowers. And added a few others as well. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug’s At The Zoo 6×6 paper pad. I cut it just a tiny bit smaller than the card base. Then glued the panel in place.


I love how easily these Oxide inks blend! So easy and no harsh lines. And today I see the next 12 are being released!!! Cannot wait! Anyway, that’s my card for today. Hope some of the process photos help to see how I did this. Get out your supplies and have some fun paper crafting! See you next time!

Here’s the products I used from the KatScrappiness Store.

I used KS Double Stitched Rectangle dies and cut  the patterned paper. Then I cut a rectangle sized to show the sentiment underneath. I stamped the cute giraffe and colored with Distress Markers. I cut it out on my Brother Scan n Cut machine. I also used a few dies from my stash for the flowers and leaves. I added them with liquid glue and some foam squares.

Unicorn Love...

Cheryl here, with a fun unicorn card. Recently I got some cute stamps of these, a little late to the party, lol. But I'm loving them. Let's check it out.
I stamped my images with Copic friendly ink, as I knew I'd be coloring them with those markers. Then I loaded them on my Brother Scan N Cut mat and cut them out with a small border. I proceeded to color them up.


I used KatScrappiness Double Stitched Rectangle dies and nested two together to create a frame. I used paper from Lawn Fawn called Watercolor Wishes Petite paper pad, sold in Kat's store. I added acetate to the back and ran two layers of foam tape around the sides. Chose a variety of sequins to make a shaker card. And then backed it with another piece of acetate. For me, doing that makes it easier to add to the card base, as it's easy to work it as the sequins are contained. I colored the images and added Spectrum Noir Sparkle brush over the hair and rainbow. I added Ranger Rock Candy Stickles to the clouds for sparkle.


Hard to pick up the sparkle without serious blowout on the acetate. Frustrates me, lol. I attached the shaker element to an A2 card base having added another paper from Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Petite paper pad. I stamped the sentiment onto another piece of the Watercolor Wishes in green using a gray ink. Cut a flag end and added to the card front. Scattered a few sequins and glued them down.
And that's about it. I love all the fun bright colors in this paper! It makes for some really pretty cards. I hope you found a bit of inspiration and will get out your supplies and make some time for crafting. Thanks for coming by!

Say Cheese...


Hello!
Cheryl here, I have another DT project to share with you. Today I'm showcasing the Lawn Fawn stamp set from my DT package called Elphie Selfie. Soooo cute!!! I did a watercolor background using Distress Inks and used some cloud dies from Gina Marie Designs. I cut it apart and then from the back side put it back together with tape. I then attached some fun foam on the back for dimension.
I stamped the cute elephants onto fun pattern papers and cut out with the dies. The large elephant is from Elphie Selfie and the little ones are from Love You Tons. I wanted to create a birthday parade feel to the card.
I used foam squares to raise them up and make them look like trunks to tails, lol. I stamped the sentiment and perched the little mouse sitting on top. And of course, the camera held high to capture the perfect photo!  I stamped the little "click-click" by the camera and added some Kat Scrappiness sequins and Fabrika enamel drops. The panel was then attached to an A2 card base with some patterned paper. I think these little critter type stamps don't always have to be colored, I love them with fun patterns too! Try something different, you might like the look you get.
Here's a 10% code to Kat Scrappiness for your shopping pleasure! Thank Kat for that!!!
