Holiday Bird Card with Stampin up

Hello!

Here with my last Holiday card of the season! Merry Christmas eve!(depending which time zone you're on) 

I started this card off with a red card base.
The bird stamp and sentiment is called Beautiful Season's from Stampin up. I stamped the bird and sentiment in Versafine ink. I then used the rubber that comes with the stamp set, its the part that your stamps sit inside until you punch them out to mount (I hope that makes sense!) I used that part on top of my stamped image as it is the same shape and then sponged in some crumb cake ink on it. I did the same with the sentiment.
I did color in with copics but waited for the ink to be completely dry as I didn't use copic friendly ink because the versa fine picks up all the details on more detailed stamps.

Have a Sweet Christmas with Lawn Fawn

Here to play along with the Lawnscaping Merry Christmas Challenge again.


I have loved seeing all the Christmas and Holiday cards being made with "non traditional" Christmas card colors. The pinks, purples, bright shades, they are all soo much fun that I wanted to break out of my comfort zone just a tad to make one my self. My favorite color is purple so I of course went with purple. I really didn't break out of my comfort zone at all as its a simple card but I love the purple!:)

Neutral Happy Holidays card with Lawn Fawn

Hello!
Hope you are all enjoying the Holidays! I have finally finished my Christmas shopping today, which I find very exciting, I now plan on avoiding the stores like the plaque until boxing day (my guilty pleasure).
Here to play along with two different challenge blogs today! I usually only play along with one at a time but this card happens to work for both:)

First is the Lawnscaping Merry Christmas challenge, so much beautiful inspiration over there!

 Second is the The Card Concept Silent Night Neutrals challenge. They have a beautiful inspiration photo on their blog to inspire your card design. I loved the neutral colors, they are so warm and liked the tiny star cookies which inspired my stars on my card! My card would fit into the Clean and Layered categorty for this challenge.


I made yet another Holiday card but if the sentiment is changed it could easily work for other occasions. I kept it pretty simple. I started with grey as my card and wanted the top panel to be grey as well but I matted a slightly larger white piece under it so it wouldn't be over whelming with just grey. I embossed the top grey panel through my cuddlebug. I used a small scallop circle die and a smaller regular circle die to make the middle piece. I stamped the circle piece with a Christmas script background stamp just to add some character as its not overly noticeable. The adorable coffee cup I stamped using Lawn Fawn's Love You a Latte stamp set , colored it with Copic marker and cut it out. I have a small start punch from Fiskars that I used to punch out the stars with some silver sparkle paper to add some shine with all the neutral colors. The sentiment is also from Lawn Fawn's Love You a Latte stamp set.


Supplies:
Love You a Latte stamp set from Lawn Fawn
Merry Christmas Backgound stamp is from The Stamp Barn
Embossing folder is by Sizzix from Stampin up

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed my neutral card today! Hope you are enjoying all your Holiday preparations whatever they may be:)

Snowflake Gift Card Holder

Hello! 
Hope everyone is almost all ready for the Holidays!! Today, I'm sharing a card to hold a gift card. I call it my gift card, card , if that makes since lol. I wanted it to look like a gift.
This card has 4 folds. Kind of accordion like. I did this with 2 sheets of white cardstock so make it long ., although if you don't care if it is a little smaller i'm sure you can achieve a similar look with 1 sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock.
I basically formed 2 different cards, with one I left more space to be able to score about an inch of it to be able to paste the other card together so that it is all attached.

I then matted each side on some Old Olive cardstock by Stampin up.
I decorated the front with various snowflakes from the Endless Wishes stamp set by Stampin up. Added some sparkly ribbon to make it look like a wrapped gift and a tiny little tag.

The area where the gift card is held is just an envelope that I cut and used my 1 3/4 circle punch on the top of.





Supplies:
Stamps:
Endless Wishes by Stampin up
Love You a Latte by Lawn Fawn (sentiment on gift card area)

Cute Reindeer card made with Cricut

Hi fellow crafters.

Here with yet another Holiday card to share:P

Before I share my card, I just quickly wanted to mention, I have been having issues with my blog lately. Every time it was viewed an annoying little pop up came up that said "no data". It took be forever to figure it out but I did!:) Turns out my inlinks (what I use to share products used) link was broken. Once I deleted every single last link it worked again. Ok all this to say that some of my old posts may be missing some product info. I tried my best to go back and write it all in but I'm sure there is the odd one I misses, so I apologize in advance!

Ok the card! I made a cute little reindeer card using the Create a Critter cricut cartridge. Besides putting all the layers together of the little reindeer, this card is pretty simple. The white card I embossed the top half with a snow flake embossing folder from cuttlebug.  The tag I also cut using the cricut and sponged some blue ink on it and added a sparkly hill. Added some twine on top and some blue twine around the card with a bow.
Oh and some glossy accent to his cute little nose:)


Products:

Snowflake embossing folder by Cuddle bug

used various cardstock scraps for the reindeer and some sparkle paper for the "snow" hill.

Hope your enjoying getting ready for the Holidays!! Thanks for stopping by to look at my card:)

Glittery Ornament card with Hero Arts

Here with another Holiday card today. I'm not sure what I'm going to do once the Holidays are over, I feel like the only cards I can make right now are Christmas cards and I really don't need anymore to give to family and friends but I keep making them anyways:P Oh well:).

I will be participating today's card in Simon Says Stamp Bling it on challenge. Such a fun challenge! I love glitter and sparkles so it was very much for me:)

I made this card using Hero Arts products.
I started with a white card base and stamped the three ornament. I wanted kind of an ombre affect on them, which doesn't pick up that well in the photos but to do this I added some white ink on the bottom part of the stamp and then simply stamped over the color for a slight shade difference.
I then stamped the snow flakes in the background with a light blue ink and then the sentiment in Memento tuxedo black.
So the complete glitter background sadly does not show in the photos nearly as much as it does in person of how wonderfully glittery it is but I did this by pressing Versamark ink all over my paper and then covered in clear glittery embossing powder ( I used Iridescent Ice by Stampin up) I then set it with my heat gun. I did this step twice to make it extra glittery:)

Merry Christmas Kitty card with Newton's Nook

I have another Newton's Nook Christmas card to share with you! I just love this set! I think I've used every stamp in the set this Holiday season. I did my Christmas stamp shopping early this year, to be more prepared I guess and as soon as I got my stamps in the mail  a bunch of new stamps from my favorite companies were released for this year, including Newton's nook. Oh well! Love this stamp set so it doesn't matter that I'm a tad behind lol. Next year ill wait a little longer :p
I think this card is a pretty self explanatory one as it├Ęs a simple one.
Stamped the image and colored in with copic markers and did some stitching lines with a black marker around the edge.
The sentiment stamps are from Warm and Cozy Christmas from Gina K Designs.

I have also participated my card in the Newton's Nook Christmas theme challenge. Love Christmas cards, so much fun!:)

Classic Santa Card

Hello again.
Here with another Holiday card. I will be taking part in the Christmas/ Holiday card challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog. 

I have been making very cutesy like cards so here today with a little more 'classy' Christmas card for you. 
Simple but elegant. I just adore this Santa stamp soo very much.
I picked this stamp up a few years ago from a local stamp store of mine.
I used a brown card base. I stamped the Merry Christmas script background stamp (also from my local stamp store) onto Kraft card stock. I wrapped some baby blue ribbon and twine around it before I adhered it onto the card base.
For Santa, I stamped him with Onyx Black Versafine ink. This stamp has a lot of details so Versafine is the best ink for this as it brings out the finest details in stamped images.
I then colored his face in using a pinky colored marker from Tombow. You do not want to use copic markers with this as the versafine ink will bleed. Added some red to his glasses just using a simple fine tip marker or pen.
I then covered the image with double sided tape ( Its actually sheets of double sided tacky film, not like strips of tape, I unfortunately used my last little bit and threw out the packaging so I don't know what its called, Sorry!) I then covered it in clear glitter. I used transparrent Micro Fine Glitter by Glitter Ritz. Sadly this does not pick up well on the picture but it person its beautifully glittery!

Christmas Owl card with Art Impressions stamp

Hi!:)
Here today with a cute little owl card! I kinda love owls lately for whatever reason. This stamp set though, just caught my eye, these cute owls with their cute little hats! This stamp set is from Art Impressions, which is another new company in to my stamp stash and I just love it.

I will be participating this card in the Simon Says Stamp Christmas/Holidays challenge over on their Wednesday challenge blog today and also their Holiday card challenge over on their Monday challenge blog. :)

Ok so onto the how to.
I stamped the owls with Memento ink onto a heavier base white cardstock because I colored with copics.
The branch I drew in my self. I am not a drawer! Just sketched it with pencil and then colored it in with copics and outlined in with a black pen.
I then colored in all the owls. I varied the browns on all of them. (I will list all the copics below)
I then stamped and embossed all the snowflakes in the background (stamp set is Endless Wishes by Stampin up) with versa mark and white embossing powder.
Before i added the blue sky background I needed to mask off my owls. However I was too lazy to fussy cut out a mask to lay on it so I just covered the whole image with glassy accents. Oh I added wink of Stella glitter to the hats first of course:) 
After the glossy accents completely dried I used my Ranger blending tool and blended varies shades of blue ink on the top.
Wiped the ink of owls and stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment.

White on White Challenge with Lawn Fawn

Hello!
Here with a card to join in on the Lawnscaping white on white challenge today! I've always loved the look of white on white on a cards,other peoples cards that is because I've never made one myself, it always looks so classy. I found it difficult just because I felt it needed a pop of color or something, a red heart, something! But I kept to the rules:) I did add some silver glitter paper though! I enjoyed that this challenge made me come out of my comfort zone a little. I actually made 2 white on white cards for the challenge.


Here's my card for today:


I matted white cardstock on top of silver sparkle cardstock and matted it on white again. The circle scallop I die cut using a die from spellbinders. Stamped images and sentiment and simple added some wink of stella glitter to the mug. That's it! A white on white simple card:)


All stamps are from the Love you a latte stamp set from Lawn Fawn.

Cute Christmas card with Newton's Nook

Here today with yet another Christmas card! I'm just having so much fun creating them, now I just need to get them all ready to send out to family and friends. Hope you're all enjoying getting ready for the holiday season! I have a simple but cute card here today. Another one using this adorable set from Newton's Nook. I will also be playing along with the Newton's Nook, Inky Paws Christmas themed challenge.
I did some masking here. I stamped the cute little cat on some Simon says stamp 150 lb cardstock first and then colored with Copics markers. I then stamped the kitty again on some scratch paper and cut it out, temporary adhered it on top of the already stamped kitty imaged and then stamped the woodgrain stamp on top and also blended some of the same ink on it and removed the mask. I added the little brad on the side to make that little panel look like a door. Whenever I look at that cute cat hanging from the wreath, that's all I can think of, is it hanging from a door:) 
The rest is pretty simple, adhered that part on a white card base. Stamped the sentiment on some blue colored cardstock and adhered it on. That's it :)

Holliday Joy Card Using Cricut

Hello! Here with another Holiday card today!
A simple one, I made using my Cricut. I used the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge (my favorite). There is a 'phrase' option with each critter. With the reindeer critter there is this JOY phrase. One of the images has the snow flake in it and the other option is just for the solid JOY cut out. I cut the JOY 'phrase' 3 times, once using the snowflake option and the other 2 with the solid JOY option.
I adhered some silver sparkle cardstock behind the snowflake and then adhered this piece on top of one the solid JOY images I cut. The second solid JOY piece needs to be scored an inch or so at the top so the card can open easily, once that is done both pieces can be adhered together.
I did cut out a circle piece to add in the inside O portion of the card to write on but this step can be avoided if you use a light enough color of cardstock for your card base.
I decorated the outside with some snowflake stamping using the Making Frosty Friends stamp set from Lawn fawn.

I did some stamping in the inside of the card with a nice message so all I have to do is write to: and from: for a quick card:)

Cardstock used:
Baja Breeze by Stampin up
Midnight Muse by Stampin up

Hope,Love, Joy Holiday Card with W plus 9 and Stampin up

Another Holiday card! Can't help myself, I have so much fun making Christmas cards.
Ok so this card I very much cased from a card that I found on a video from Paper Trey Ink. It was from a few years ago but I favorited the card on youtube and when I purchased this stamp set from W plus 9, I thought it was the perfect set to do this reflection technique and card with. W plus 9 is totally new to me in the stamp set product world but I very much loved this little set so I will have to search for more sets from them:)
You can find the original card here from Papertrey ink.
The reflection technique is also shared at the above link but is very easy to do. Just stamp the sentiment on acetate and then press acetate onto paper:)

Card stock is Smoky Slate by Stampin up.

Ink:
Island Indigo by Stampin up
Fired Brick Distress Ink by Tim Holtz
Old Olive by Stampin up
and Black Versafine

Oh and the little ampersand I cut out with Cricut.

Thinking of you card with Lawn Fawn and Hero Arts.

Hello!
Here with a simple 'Thinking of you" card. The flower makes me think of a "Get well" card but would be good for a sympathy card as well.
I started off with a white card base and cut some Sahara Sand card stock by Stampin up slightly smaller then the base. I embossed this piece with an embossing folder from Sizzix through my cuddle bug.
I stamped my image from Lawn fawn with Memento black ink. I stamped this on Simon Says Stamp 120lb cardstock. I like to uses this cardstock when I'm coloring with Copic markers. I tend to use thinner white cardstock everywhere else on my card unless i'm coloring, then  this stuff is lovely!
Once the coloring was done, I did some black dash lines around the edge and adhered it on my card.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts, I stamped and cut this separately also added some dash lines and adhered it on to the card, and added some pearls randomly to finish it off:)


Copic markers used:
                                               
Petals: Y11 Y13 E33

Hero Arts Holliday card #2

Hello!
Another Christmas card to share today:)
I made this for the Hero Arts Holliday Challenge.  There are a few categories for this challenge. This card is for the "Mad About Metallics" category.
I used the wreath of leaves stamp set by Hero Arts. I stamped it with versa mark ink and embossed it with gold embossing powder, using my heat gun.
The sentiment is also from Hero Arts and is from the set decorate your holidays.
I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment with Versafine on vellum paper. I folded the sides underneath the card stock.
I had a little package of pearls from Simon says stamp that they send to you with your order sometimes, it was perfect with the assortment of sizes to randomly put some around this wreath.



The gold embossing is more visible in this picture.

Card stock used: Cherry cobbler and Old olive from Stampin up.
The punch used on the bottom is a border punch also from Stampin up.

DIY Wedding - Guest tree

Hello! Another DIY wedding project. This one a little more complicated then the others I have posted. Complicated isn't the word actually, It's not nearly as hard as it looks even if your not crafty more like time consuming. Anyways, getting into it! An alternative to a guest book! I love the thumb print tree idea also but kinda messy with ink and such so decided to do it this way and then everyone can sign a leaf instead:)



So first off I painted the canvas all over with the color of my choose which in my case was grey. I just bought acrylic paint from the dollar store, the one i bought was too dark so i just added white paint until i got the color I liked. Wait for it to dry of course before moving on to the next step.
Ok, so I am not a drawer or an artist by any means! Seriously, I can't make stick figures look good, I'm crafty but not at all when it comes to drawing! I am saying this because the next step is to sketch a tree onto canvas. As I said I can't draw so I googled drawings of tree images and the sketched this tree and branches (not the leaves) on the canvas with pencil, in case i had to erase anything, which I did multiple times. It wasn't actually that hard to do following a sketch and it didn't turn out so bad. 
I then took a skinny paint brush, again just a simple one from the dollar store, and outlined all the tree and branched with white paint and then filled it all in with a larger paint brush. I found outlining the area first made it easier to control without getting the paint out of the lines. Of course i did in some areas so I just went over them with the grey out side color and you could never tell that I got white paint on the background.
So next is to do the leaves. I got different sized leaves out with my Cricut and used the negative. Then simply put it when I wanted the leaves to go and painted in with white (again easier to do with small/skinny brush for more control and less mistakes). You could also do this with a stencil or a negative of a paper punch you may have.
The names and date I did the same way, again cut with Cricut and used negatives and colored in with the white paint. Again you can uses letter stencils for this step.
The birds I actually did from a stamp set (I can't remember which one, sorry!) and painted over with purple paint and outlined with black sharpie. The heart is from a heart punch and again used the negative and colored in with purple paint. Once that dried I simply just did our initials with a black sharpie. And that's it! All done.
I purchased the fine tip sharpie pens for guests to sign their names into the leaves and that worked perfectly fine. :) 
Hope you enjoyed.

Hero Arts Holiday Card

Hello again!
Here with another Holiday card. I can't help but anything but holiday cards right now. Also getting started on Christmas crafts and crafty gifts as well. So much fun!
I made this card kind of as a copy of a card I have done in the past, I wasn't blogging at that time so you can check out that card on my Flickr here.
I made it into a Christmas version. I just liked the simplicity of it and then the random stitching on the border.


And I will also take part of Hero Arts Holiday Challenge. Entering this in the category of  'Anything Goes'.

I stamped the tree in Lucky Limeade ink by Stampin up. The cardstock Island Indigo from Stampin up as well in the ink around the edge. I used liquid pearls in tiny dots as the popcorn or beads on the tree and little gems as ornaments (that don't picture well).
The stitching I just did with a normal sewing machine just randomly twisting and turn as I went around the cards.

DIY Wedding - Table numbers

Another DIY wedding project today. Just really simple table numbers and "I spy" cards for photos (another pinterest idea ofcourse). These were really easy and inexpensive to make and a little different then the typical wedding table numbers.

I started off with one of these plastic photo frames that I bought from the dollar store.


 On one side I did the table numbers. I printed these on shimmery white paper (not noticeable in the picture) from my printer. I decided to type out the words of the table numbers rather than just the number just because i liked the look of it. Under each table number I put my favorite love quotes or song , or below a quote from movies (the notebook ofcourse, hehe) and then just glued gems (also purchased from the dollar store) around the frame. It comes with adhesive on the back already but I was worried they would fall off so I glue gunned it all on.



 On the other side of the table numbers I made an "I spy" game for photos. Again just printed it off from my printer, using different colored inks to match my purple color scheme and just adhered sparkly paper strips I cut, around the edges and voila cheap but cute table numbers.

Newtons Nook Christmas Card

Hello!
Here with a cute holiday card, with some adorable stamps from Newton's nook. Another shaker card! I bought some sequins for the first time ever and felt the need to make another shaker card.

DIY coffee filter flowers

Back again with a DIY project this time. An idea I found on Pinterest of course and wanted to make it for around the house. There are tutorials on pinterest of coffee filter roses as well but these were crazy easy and I like the look of them.
I tried to take pictures as I went along to show the way I found the easiest for me.
Here are the flowers all done. I put them in a really simple dollar store vase and wrapped a small piece of lace around it.
Supply's needed. Pipe cleaners,(I used all sparkly silver),glue gun,wooden sticks (they are just skewers you would use to make kabobs), floral tape and the paint is optional but I used silver enamel glitter paint.
 Ok so how to: Fold coffee filters in half and cut some of the top for size of flowers you want. I used about 10 to 12 to make the flower full.

 Fold them in half again , kind of in a cone shape so that you cut a tiny hole in the bottom for the pipe cleaner to go through.
 Slide the pipe cleaner through the hole and hot glue it on the coffee filters. You could also choose to hot glue the wooden stick instead of the pipe cleaner at this point. I tried it both ways and found this way the easiest.
 At this point you want to start scrunching each coffee filter upwards. You may have to hot glue the coffee filters 1 or 2 more times through the bunch as not all the filters are secure to the pipe cleaner. I started by folding the filters in half on the pipe cleaner and scrunching one filter up at a time.
 This is about half the filter scrunched up.
 Just continue until they are all scrunched upward and you achieve the look you want.
 I kinda pinched the very end of the flower at the pipe cleaner to make in narrow and simply slid the stick in beside the pipe cleaner. I secured it with scotch tape first.
 And then wrapped floral tape around it.
 Then simply start wraping the pipe cleaner around the stick. You will have to add 1 or 2 more as you go as 1 wasn't long enough.
 The stem all wrapped up. And your flower is all done at this point or you can add color or sparkle if you choose.
I added some of the silver glitter paint just on the tips of 2 of the flowers and left 2 completely white.
 Here is a picture of a flower that some glitter was added to.
And the flowers completely done in a vase. They turned out kinda cute:) 


Hope you enjoyed. Thanks for looking!:)
