Better When You’re Laughing

  • Stamps – The Cat’s Pajamas “Friendship”
  • Die – Spellbinders Nestabilities “Labels Fifteen”
  • Patterned paper – BoBunny “Black Tie Affair Diamonds”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • American Crafts Glitter Buttons
  • Twine – Doodlebug

I created this card for an exchange called “All About Me,” for which we all made a card that reflected us in some way. So I figured I had to have a penguin or two, and when I saw this sentiment I knew it was appropriate. Laughing is a good way to pass the time! Once I stamped the penguins, I colored the beaks, feet and phone with Sakura sparkle gel pens. I put together the elements a little off-kilter, which also seemed to kind of represent me! Thanks for visiting.

Mixed media birthday gent

  • Stamps –
    • Stamper’s Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection “Little Things”
    • Hero Arts “Petite Birthday”
  • Patterned paper – BoBunny “Enchanted Garden Periodical”
  • Ranger Distress Collage Medium – Crazing

I created this card for my brother-in-law’s birthday. I started with the BoBunny paper, which I lightly gessoed and layered some ephemera and tape on top. I covered the entire surface with collage medium. I applied some Distress inks through a stencil and more inks with a sponge applicator to add some more color. Once everything was dry, I stamped the globe and postage stamp images, along with the birthday sentiment. Finally I adhered the whole panel onto a card base. Thanks for visiting.

Sleepy Owl’s Birthday

 

  • Stamps –
    • Impression Obsession “Sleepy Owl”
    • The Cat’s Pajamas “Simply Said”
  • Patterned papers –
    • BoBunny “Enchanted Garden Romance” and “Dot to Dot – Violet Dot”
    • Bazzill – “Antique Script”
  • Copic Markers
  • Embossing Powder – Ranger Ink

I’ve had this owl stamp and the patterned paper on the card base for years, so it was fun to create this card for an owl enthusiast with it. I colored the image with Copic markers, fussy-cut it, and layered it onto a couple of layers of patterned paper. I heat embossed the sentiment onto the black paper so it would stand out. A very simple card. Thanks for stopping by.

Who’s taking the cake?

  • Stamps/Dies – Art Impressions “Mini Raccoon Spinner Set”
  • Rectangle dies – Simon Says Stamp  “Stitched Rectangles”
  • Patterned paper – BoBunny “Enchanted Harvest Collection” 6 X 6″ paper pad
  • Cardstock – Paper Accents
  • Copic markers
  • Fishing line

This raccoon is is running up the tree and really trying to take that cake! I stamped the raccoon and cupcake, then colored them with Copic markers. Once that was complete, I die cut them and attached them to the fishing line (these images are two-sided).

Detail of view of raccoon from the inside.

I put a panel of the bark patterned paper on the inside of the card base and die cut the outside opening and the other stitched frames. I attached the raccoon and cupcake suspended by fishing line on the back side of the card front, concealing the fishing line with another stitched frame.

This was a fun card to make and I know a certain raccoon lover who will really like it! Thanks for visiting.

Orchid Sympathy Card

  • Stamps –
    • Flourishes “Orchids”
    • Technique Tuesday “Pansy Stamp Set”
  • Embossing folder – Cuttlebug Decorative Tile
  • Patterned paper – BoBunny “Secret Garden – Lovely”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Zig Clean Color markers/waterbrush

For this simple card, the main attraction is the orchid. This is such a beautiful stamp set from Flourishes! I stamped it and then went in with Zig Clean Color markers and a waterbrush to color the image. I added the sentiment, still keeping it simple and elegant. I layered the main image with a subtle patterned paper and a simple embossed white layer, then adhered the whole shebang onto pink cardstock. I made this card for a close friend who recently lost her husband. Thanks for visiting.

Cupcakes for you

SS-Cupcakes4you

  • Stamps –
    • Impression Obsession MC181 “Cupcake”
    • Avery Elle “Oh Happy Day”
  • Die – Spellbinders Nestabilities “Standard Circles Large”
  • Patterned paper – BoBunny Secret Garden Collection: Roses (both sides)
  • Markers – KaiserCraft metallic gel pens
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I’m doing a little catching up on cardmaking while I have a few days off. I’ve had this stamp set for a long time and it is always fun to pull something out of my stash. I decided to pick up on the roses on some of the cupcakes and repeat roses with the patterned paper. I colored the cupcakes with KaiserCraft gel pens that really work well with their 0.6mm tips for fine lines.

I created this card using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #250. Unfortunately, I forgot to link it over there until the deadline had passed! Oh well! I will be linking to The Paper Players current challenge, which is #309: Something Sweet. A group of stamping friends and I have been virtually getting together for two years, so we decided to make cupcake cards for the occasion and this is mine. Thanks for stopping by.


Framed Thanks

sss-thanks-cuts

  • Dies – Simon Says Stamp –
    • “Quadrangle Frames”
    • “Thanks”
  • Patterned cardstock – BoBunny
  • Solid cardstock – Bazzill
  • Sequins – Doodlebug Designs

I created this card without doing any stamping, which is fun to do once in awhile (but I do love my stamping!). This is a very simple design and could qualify as a masculine card. I made it in response to the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group Challenge #52: “Cut it Out,” which is to use die cuts on a card. The Shopping our Stash Challenge #265 is to use a word die and on this card, the sentiment is the focal point. That’s it for now. Thanks for visiting.
