Hello Beautiful

Hello everyone,
For the MFT Camp Create 2017 Day 1 - Inlaid Made Easy I have made this super easy, yet very pretty Hello card.  I started with a piece of dark grey card stock and die cut the edges with the largest Kat Scrappiness Scalloped Rectangle Die. I then placed my card stock into my MISTI and stamped the "beautiful" sentiment using the Honey Bee Beautiful Life Stamp Set, isn't that such a pretty font? I then took the Big Hello Die from MFT and laid it on my card stock and die cut it with my Sizzix, don't forget to keep the little piece from the center of the O.  I absolutely LOVE this die and use it every chance I get.  I then found a scrap of white card stock I had used to practice foiling on.  This piece was originally white card stock that I used transfer gel on then foiled with silver foil.  For this project I pulled out my new Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and inked the card stock and spritzed liberally with water for that trademark oxide finish, then I wiped off any possible ink from the foil and cut it out with the Big Hello Die again. I then placed my dark grey piece down on an A2 sized side folding card base in black and then pieced in the die cut foiled pieces to create the card.  For finishing touches I added Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony Black and sprinkled IndigoBlu Unicorn Sparkle on top while they were wet.  I wish that photos could show just how pretty the foil is in real life.  This card came out so pretty for using a rather limited color pallet, but I rather like the direction it went.

See you soon

Snail Mail - Thinking of You

Hello everyone,
So excited for my first official post as a DT Member for Victorine Originals.

I made a quick and simple card using the Mini Animals and Flowers (10548-X) from Victorine Originals. These little critters are so cute and versatile and I saw this little snail and thought a Thinking of You card would be perfect.  I started with a 3 x 3 piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock and stamped the snail in TH Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers (OMG, this color is so pretty!) then I added the Thinking of You sentiment from my crafty stash and wanted to showcase more of that beautiful color, so dug around in my big box of stencils and found this distressed bubble one and added some more ink to the top left of my white panel.  I then cut out a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 square of Poppy colored paper to mat my snail piece onto.  I put it all onto an A2 sized piece of grey card stock and added some glitter washi tape down the side for a bit more interest. These colors really pop and are so pretty together. 

These Mini Animals and Flowers stamps are so versatile and cute from Victorine and I love how this card turned out.  Please check out my social media links listed below and the blog over at Victorine Originals and join us for the challenge going on right now, here is the inspiration board:

A Confession and a Thank You

Hello everyone,
So I have a confession.... I absolutely LOVE stationary and pens! I mean really LOVE them, always have..... so when my dad gave me this beautiful Swarovski pen as shown in the photo above, he deserved a beautiful hand made thank you note.  Masculine cards are a little harder for me to design and yes this has flowers, but I went with blue and kept it pretty simple overall.  I stamped the new Hero Arts bouquet from the July stamp set (summer flowers)/kit in black Versafine ink on Neenah Solar White card stock that I then cut with the largest of the Kat Scrappiness Fancy Scalloped Rectangle dies. I then took a post it note that has sticky over the whole thing and die cut with the matching die the flower bouquet. I then laid the post it over my stamped image and used TH Distress Oxide in Peacock Feathers (OMG, what a gorgeous color!) over the image with an ink dauber.  I removed the post it and had the perfect coloring.  I then stamped the Thank You from the same Hero Art set and attached the white panel to an A2 side folding light grey card base. I added some pretty light blue sequins from my stash and finally I took the cute bow stamp from the Hero Art kit and stamped it on a piece of scrap white card stock and colored it with my water brush and the same Peacock Feathers, die cut it and put it on my card, then I coated it with some glossy accents for shine and dimension.
I love the way this turned out and am hoping my dad enjoyed getting some home made happy mail as well.
*I saw this card idea from Jess Crafts YouTube Video showcasing the Hero Arts kit for July 2017 and really liked it although she used a piece of stencil material and I used a post it for my mask. She deserves credit for the great simple card idea, as it is a great one and would make easy to mass produce cards I believe*
Hope you enjoy, see you all soon!

Birthday Butterflies

Hello everyone,
So I have some very exciting news to share here on my blog...... I have been asked to be on the Design Team for Victorine Originals. I know, right? Super exciting!!!!! and they have challenges that you can be a part of and join in the fun! The best part...... the stamps are super awesome!!!!! 

So for this card I used the cute little butterfly from the Mini Animals and Flowers Set (10548-X) and stamped them with the newest TH Distress Oxide Inks in Antique Linen, Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves and Faded Jeans to create an ombre effect on Neenah Solar White 80lb card stock. I then used a Happy Birthday sentiment from my craft stash and die cut the panel. I layered it onto an A2 card base that I went around the edges with the Faded Jeans to tie in the colors.  

I love the way this turned out and doesn't everyone need super cute and easy Birthday cards in their stash and these would be easy to mass produce quickly.

The August 4th Challenge is Purple and you can use the pictures, colors or title to design a project, here is the Inspiration Board:

Let's Sail Away

Hello everyone,
I have a new card to share that I will be entering into the Victorine Originals Challenge #6

I enjoyed the colors and the photos on the inspiration board and knew I had something fun in my craft supplies that would fit right in.  I used some nautical theme paper and cut the largest out with a rectangle stitch die and then made two fish tail banners, one with more patterned paper and another with navy blue card stock that I also used as my top folding A2 card base.  The small stitched rectangle on top is cut out of a light grey card stock and then I used Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Pure Platinum through a small firework stencil for added dimension over which I glued down the adorable anchor paperclip.  I also tied a piece of brown twine around the small rectangle and popped the whole rectangle off the card with fun foam for added dimension. I used patterned papers, card stock, anchor and a sentiment from a SSS card kit from 2016 that I had in my craft room.
I hope you enjoy my card and feel like playing along with the challenge as well.
See you all soon!

Day 5 MFT Camp Create - Glitzy Glitter

 Hello everyone,
Last Camp Create project- and it is so glittery! I made a super easy card and let the glitter take center stage.  The "Hello" is the Big Hello Die from MFT and I glittered it with Jewel Glitter Ritz Opaque Micro Fine Glitter in Garnet by first taking a piece of white cardstock and putting some stickit on first then die cutting the Hello and then I played with the glitter.... the dogs are glittered, my work space if glittered, but it is such a beautiful color, the pictures do not do it justice.  I cut out a piece of Echo Park Designer Paper and then laid out the "hello" and glued it down, added some "hole-less" sequins all over and then put it all down onto a black top folding A2 card base. 
I had a great time with Camp Create this year... thanks for checking out my projects
See you soon!

 Trying to get the glitter on camera- it is so pretty

Camp Create Bonus: Gather ‘Round the Campfire - Divine Dry Embossing

Hello everyone,
Bonus project!!!!
I am in love with this Big Hello die from MFT.  My crafty BFF gave it to me and I could not be happier, it has become a go to for me!  I had this watercolor panel in my stash from playing around for Day 1 and I thought this would be perfect for this project.  So I dry embossed the Hello and almost left it that way as it was so pretty, but I have been wanting to play with the Polar Bears for a while and thought this would be a cute addition.... so that is what occurred.  I colored the cute sitting bear with copics and added some white dots on the scarf and then a layer of wink of stella.  Popped him up with some fun foam and added some clear "hole-less" sequins and put it all on a white A2 card base.  What a fun technique and love the results!
See you all soon!
