I recently needed some sympathy cards. I made two slightly different versions.  The top, white layer is popped up on dimensionals and with the light coming from behind you can see the dimensionals and it looks weird but in real life you can't see them. Very CAS!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Paper: White, black (SU)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Other: Dimensionals, Clear & White Sequins (Avery Elle)

Happy 63rd Anniversary

I can't believe that it's been 2 months since my last post. Wow!

My mom & dad celebrated their 63rd anniversary yesterday. This is the card that I made for them. It's not a great pic as I had to take the picture quickly and then we headed out the door to dinner.

I first stamped the word "anniversary" so that I would know where to place the leaves which I did next. I die cut the word "happy" 4 times, glued them together and then glued them down on the card. The last addition was some Perler beads that I had previously melted in my oven.  You can't really tell in the picture but the top layer is on dimensionals on the Chocolate Chip layer.  That's it. Now that I look at the card I wish that I had added some ink speckles. Oh well. Next time.

Thanks for stopping by today. I'll try to get back into the swing of card making a bit more regularly :-)

Stamps: Leaf Prints, Wet Paint (PTI)
Paper: Chocolate Chip (SU), white (PTI)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry
Other: Wet Paint Cuts Die (PTI), Perler beads

One More 4th of July Card

Here's my last 4th of July card. I couldn't reveal it until today because my girls follow my blog. :-)

This card is basically the same as my previous post except I die cut a large star instead of a tag. 

Hope everyone eats lots of tasty food, enjoys the day and watches fireworks tonight. Safely of course :-)

Happy 4th of July

Here are a couple cards that I made for the 4th.  Hope everyone enjoys the day!

• I used the PTI Cover Plate: Stripes to die cut the red. You can see the stripes that were die cut out in the top card and the full panel overlaid on white card stock in the bottom card. 

• In the top card card I used SSS Falling Stars stencil and spackling paste from the hardware store to make the stars.  In the bottom card I stamped the stars in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.

• I stamped the sentiment onto the double ended flag and popped it up on dimensionals. The tag is also on dimensionals.

Top card:

Hubbies Father's Day Card

Here is the card that I made for my husband. I case'd this card cuz I just really liked the look. I did change the upper right corner. I punch Tag Sale #5 out of white card stock and then stamped the sentiment near the bottom. I did some paper piercing and tied on Baker's twine. Then I cut off the top of the tag and attached it with dimensionals to the card. The stamped panel was run through my Big Shot with the Linen & Canvas impression plate after stamping of course :-)

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!!

Stamps: Handy Hardware
Paper: Kraft, White (SU)
Ink: Midnight Muse, Bashful Blue (SU), Pure Poppy, Kraft (PTI)
Other: Linen & Canvas Impression Plate, Tag Sale #5 (PTI), Baker's twine, dimensionals, paper piercing tools

Stuck on Circle Scribbles

I admit it. I love Circle Scribbles. Now it's even more fun with the die cuts. I made these cards last week but I didn't get the pictures taken until today.

On the first card I used Maile Belles' technique of cutting the card and inserting a panel underneath in Bermuda Bay. I cut the scribbles from Pool Party, Smokey Shadow and white card stock. The sentiment is also in Bermuda Bay and is from a set by Altenew called Label Love.  I adde sequins (Avery Elle) and enamel dots (MME) to finish the card.

The second card started out as a case of this card.  I move the sentiment down and again used Label Love but this time I cut it out and popped it up with dimensionals. Hmm, for this card I used a different color for the largest circle but it escapes me at this moment :-)

Thanks for stopping by on this rainy NW day!

p.s. I should also have mentioned that I ran the white card stock through my Big Shot with the Linen & Canvas impression plate by PTI.

The Challenge #7

I got my new PTI order yesterday and had to start playing.  I found this sketch challenge and thought it would be a good one to use.

As I looked at the sketch again this morning I realized that I left off the left side strip. Oops!  I'm still going to upload this but I'll have to try again later :-)

I can't seem to get away from the Circle Scribbles and I thought they would go well with the new Splat set.  After all the stamping I used my spritzer to add a bit of color to the background.  Then a few sequins and an enamel dot and I'm done.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Stamps: Circle Scribbles, Splat, Keep It Simple: Birthday (PTI)
Paper: White (PTI)
Ink: Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse (PTI), Versafine Onyx Black, Bermuda Bay & Pear Pizzazz markers (SU)
