100 Day Destash-Day 31-Patterned Paper AGAIN!

Let’s face it we all have oodles of it so why not use it. Today I would like to carry on from the other days blog featuring the Concord & 9th All For You die set.

This die set covers just about every occasion I can think of so I am going to show you a few more I made today highlighting he smaller dies.

This card features the small thank die. It was created by cutting 4 words out and gluing them together. I cut the big YOU die out of 4 pieces of white (3 scraps) I glued the acetate to the first layer and then the remaining layers were glued.

I added the sequins into the letters and then glued on the patterned paper. This was put on a card base. The word thank, a heart and some sequins were popped on top. Card 1 done! The next 2 cards were done in the same fashion just changing out the word die and patterned paper and a few pieces of vellum. I hope you enjoy.

Card Making

Oh Snarky Cat…..

I have to say that the Snarky Cat stamps I purchased last fall have been one of my favorites this past year. So when I was woken at 3:30am by my somewhat cat-like, Shih Tzu it was what I grabbed. Let’s say I was feeling a bit snarky…..

The background of this card was created using Simon Hurley’s Stamping Foam. This product is amazing. You heat it up with your embossing heat tool and press it into anything with texture. Then ink it up and stamp away. The best part….when you reheat it the image goes away and you can reuse it.

I pressed it into a placemat and inked it in rainbow colors. The cat was stamped separately, fussy cut and colored with alcohol markers.

I added a sentiment from Ink Road Stamps and a few Nuvo drops. Then the card stock was popped up on the base with some foam tape. The card was done, the Shih Tzu was snoring and I went back to bed! Hope you all enjoyed your weekend and slept well. Thanks for stopping by.

100 Day Destash-Day 29-Embossing Folder with a New Technique

Ok so it is the second birthday for AAA Birthday Challenge. This week’s challenge is Happy Birthday. Click HERE to participate and possibly when a prize!!

This card was with a bunch of die cut 2s, an embossing folder and a sentiment.

The embossing folder was inked with Versafine Ink on the negative side. Then sparkly Hero Arts powder was sprinkled on the embossed paper. Jennifer McGuire just did a great tutorial on this technique. Click HERE if you want to see it. The result looks much better in person. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by!!

100 Day Destash-26 Days-Favorite Stamps

We have been busy lately with some visitors. We have been able to visit Zion National Park and also spent a day in Sedona. So card making was a bit on the back burner.

So today’s card is a simple one. It’s a one layer card with a few blingy bits. The stamp is one of Tim Holtz’s Snarky Cats. I love these cats so much! The rainbow was masked off and ink blended with Distress Oxides. Then the cat was stamped over the masked rainbow.

The spirals are from a Gina K Designs set. A few black Doodlebug gems were added. I hope you enjoy it. Have a great day!
