Forever Be My Always

Hello Stamping Friends!!

I'm on the Dare 2B Artzy Blog today!!

I have a super sweet card to share with you!  I absolutely LOVE the new Love Birds stamp set!

I first grabbed the Rectangle Fancy Framelit Die set to create the fun shaped card, along with the white cardstock layer, which I stamped the bird image and sentiment on!
I used my Copics to color in the adorable image!!

Before adding the stamped cardstock layer, I added some twine.  Then added the layer and finished off the card by adding a button and twine bow!


Today my hubby and I celebrate 12 years!  And 18 years together!!  So I thought this would be a fun card to give him!!

I die cut the lovely Easter Lily to place as though it was growing between the diamond background! I love lilies!!

I am featuring the NEW 'Friends' stamp set!

Here is a look at the entire stamp set:


I am also featuring some of the lovely Lemon Bliss Collection paper:

Such fun designs!!

First up I am sharing a layout I created:
I just LOVE all the lovely papers in the  Lemon Bliss Collection!!  So I just have to feature a bunch of them on this layout of my friends and I from a recent scrapbook retreat!  

I stamped the 'I'm blessed to have friends like you.' sentiment from the Friends stamp set a few times, masking it so that I could create the sentiment to cascade down my layout on the right of my photo.
I really like how it looks!

I also stamped the 'Friends make life fresh' sentiment, also from the Friends stamp set, and die cut it out using a die from the Rectangle Fancy Framelit Die set.  I added it under the photo mat.
I die cut some lemons from te Lemons & Ladybugs pattern paper to add as accents!! 

I really like how this layout turned out!!

-----

I also decided to create a card to share with you using the Friends stamp set!!
I also used the awesome Trellis Die for my die cut background, which I placed over a piece of Lemons & Ladybugs pattern paper (the back side for the yellow pattern)!

Such a bright and fresh card!!

Celebrate You


Hello Sweet Stamping Friends!


I'm joining in the post today on the My Creative Time Blog!

Today's theme is...

Just Cards

As I mentioned earlier this month, I absolutely LOVE the new Celebration Tags stamp and die set!  I just had to use it again to make another cute birthday card!! (I am really lacking on birthday cards right now, so this set totally came at the right time!!)
I created some cute layers using pattern paper.  I then used the die tag layers from the Celebration Tags stamp and die set, die cutting the largest layer from kraft paper and then one layer from white cardstock.  I die cut the cupcake wrapper from the white later to create a shaker window.  Thought it would be fun to make the base of the cupcake a shaker!!  Something I've never done before!!

I embossed my cupcake frosting with a swirly embossing folder!  I love the look!!

I stamped the 'Let's Celebrate You.' sentiment on the die cut banner!

Such a cute card!!  I am having so much fun with this new set!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Published Cards

Hello Stamping Friends!

Today I have three cards to share with you using fun stamps from Your Next Stamp that were published in the December 2018 issue of Making Cards & Papercraft Magazine!! 

With all the crazy weather we have been getting, the kids have only been going to school 2 or 3 days a week!  Which has cut down on my crafty time majorly!!  So I haven't gotten these shared yet!

Today is the day!!  LOL!!

I'm so excited to share these cute cards with you.  I just LOVE YNS's adorable stamp sets!! And lovely dies!!

The first two use the adorable Good Glidings stamp and coordinating Good Glidings Die Set!

I used the cute Giraffe on the first one:
I started by first stamping the 'Gliding By With Holiday Cheer' sentiment on a slant in the middle of my card base.  I then used the Thick Rectangle Die Set to create my fun shaker window!!  Once finished I adhered it to my card base on a slant above the sentiment!

I stamped the giraffe image with Black Olive Ink and colored in with my Copics.  I die cut the giraffe out and added to the right side of my frame!

For the next card I used the adorable deer:
I created my card base and then added a piece of brown and green plaid pattern paper from the Mint Cocoa Kisses 6x6 Paper Pad!

I then cut a piece of white paper the size of my card base and cut on an angle on the right side, so once adhered to my card base you'd see the pattern paper.  Before adding to my card base, I stamped the 'Gliding By With Holiday Cheer' sentiment neat the bottom right.  I also used the Double Pierced Hills Die Set, to die cut about 1' up from the bottom left corner, just a portion of the die, so that it looks like a skating mark!! I love the look!!  So fun!

I stamped the deer image with Black Olive Ink and colored in with my Copics. Die cut the deer out with the coordinating die and adhered to my card with pop-dots.  I finished the card off by adding some Gumdrops to the upper right of my card!

For my last card I used the Home for the Holidays stamp and coordinating Home for the Holidays Die Set:
I created my card base from a piece of teal cardstock!  I then used the Stitched Scalloped Rectangles Die Set for my white scalloped cardstock layer, which I adhered directly to my card base.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Die Set to create a teal and white cardstock layers.  I stamped the 'Season's Greetings' sentiment with Black Olive Ink on the white rectangle cardstock layer near the bottom right. I then adhered the two layers together.  Wrapped some Divine Twine near the upper right and adhered to my card base with pop-dots.  I added a button and twine bow as well.

I stamped the sweet birdhouse image with  Black Olive Ink and colored with my Copics.  I die cut the sweet image out and added some Glossy Accents to the snow on the birdhouse and then sprinkled some glitter on it!  I let it dry, shook off the excess glitter and adhered to my card with pop-dots!!

Three super fun holidays card!  I just love how each of them turned out!!

Darling Easter Lamb


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a fun card to share with you using dies from Frantic Stamper!!

I used the awesome new Stitched Diamond Panel #1 and Stitched Diamond Panel #2 to layer together to make a shaker window:
I absolutely LOVE how you can layer these two die cuts together!!!  So much fun!!

I used the super adorable Darling Lamb for my die cut lamb!  I die cut him a few times.  Once to get all the black cardstock pieces and then twice from white cardstock.  As I wanted to use an Action Wobble to make his head jiggle!!  So fun!

I used the Giant Layered Happy for my die cut 'happy' sentiment and the Layered Easter Blessings for the die cut 'Easter'!

Be sure to check out all of Frantic Stamper's fun dies!!

Fun Fold Cards

Hello Stamping Friends!!

I'm on the Dare 2B Artzy Blog today sharing two cards!!

I am featuring the lovely Fun Card Fold Die!!
The lovely Fun Card Fold Die coordinates so nicely with the beautiful Rectangle Fancy Framelit Die set!  I used the framelit die set to help make some of the layers for both these cards!

The Penguin Fun stamp set was used for the 'Let it Snow!' sentiment!

The die cut snowflakes on both cards are part of our trio of snowflakes die set.

This second card uses the Snowflake Wishes stamp set for the top sentiment!
And the Merry Christmas Die set for the bottom sentiment!

Such fun cards with the Fun Card Fold Die!

And if you haven't already seen there is a new fun fold die!!

It's called Wavy Square Fun Fold Die!  Which coordinates with the Wavy Squares Framelit Die set!!

I can't wait to create a fun fold with that new die!!

Happy Easter


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a fun card to share with you using dies from Frantic Stamper!!

The new Happy Easter Release is just too much fun!!

I used the fun new Egg Carton (10606) die to create the egg carton that I then added some cute little chickies to, which are part of the new Egg Carton Eggs & Chicks (10607)!
 I love the chick that seems to be stuck upside down in the carton!! LOL!!
What fun this card was to create!!

I used the Reverse-Cut Spring Words (10609) die set for my die cut 'HAPPY' and the Layered Easter Blessings (10610) for my die cut 'Easter'!

I decided to finish the inside of the card right away as well, as I was having so much fun with these dies!!
I added another chickie from the Egg Carton Eggs & Chicks (10607) die set! And stamped the 'Thanks for being a Grade A friend' sentiment from the new Eggstra Happy Easter (CL-124) stamp set!

Too cute!! One of my favorite cards from this release!!
