A Beautiful View

Hello Friends, it is Shirley posting today.  Since summer has faded into the sunset and we are just starting the Fall season, I thought I would share one more card with a summer scene. Sailboats always look so peaceful and serene out on the water, especially when the sun is starting to set.

I started out using a white card base. I added layers of turquoise, orange and black card stock over it. I really like these colors together.

I used the Sweet 'n Sassy The Sea stamp set to stamp the sailboat scene. I took various colors of Distress Inks and blended them over the stamped image using the Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool.

The finishing touch to my card was to add the sentiment from the Impression Obsession Anytime Sentiments. 

Thank you for joining us today. I hope the bright colors on this card has brightened your day. Have a wonderful weekend.

Prince of Peace

Hello card makers out there! Mindy with you today, to share a wonderful card that I will be making for the holidays this year. It is a (CAS) Clean and Simple card, that is one stamped image, then can be decorated as little or as much as you desire.

I stamped the Joy to the World Cling stamp set from Heartfelt Creations on watercolor paper, and added just a bit of color with my watercolor markers. I distressed around the edge of the paper with Vintage Photo Distressed Ink. and my Mini Ink Blending Tool by Ranger, to give it the distressed edge look, then matted it with a piece of So. . . Silk Glamour Green, before adding to my card base of Bluebell Stardream Metallic paper, both carried in the Classy Cards 'n Such online store.

A tiny satin bow and several paper Sequins cut from the Sequins die, from My Favorite Things, were added to complete my card.

Thanks for visiting today. You still have time to join our weekly card challenge "Holly Days", where you can submit a card and possibly win a wonderful prize.

Sorority Panda

Hello, Diana here sharing a card I made for a very specific purpose.  My niece is in this sorority, and apparently they have this thing they do for their "littles", and this year she is to gift her with panda themed things.  So I made this little shaker card with a panda holding the balloons with the colors of her sorority.

To make this shaker card, I started with the large stitched die from MFT Blueprints 13, and cut two in white card stock. On one of them, I cut a window out using a diagonal stitched square die.

I then stamped my sentiment from my stash, and also adhered a sheet of Clear Cardstock using 1/8" Scor-tape.

On the other one, I sponged some Evergreen Bough and Squeezed Lemonade, and then glued Memory Box Bamboo Shoots out of green card stock with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive, to make my background through the front window. I used some foam tape to pop up my window, and added some green beads and Sequins inside my shaker element. *NOTE - In the CCNS online store, there is a die called Sequins. Row by row, the sequins graduate in size. Cut them out of foil paper, for a real WOW effect. See supply list below.

I then popped up a fussy cut panda, and some balloons from the ODBD Happy Birthday die set.  I also popped up the top balloons with  Joy! Small Foam Pads, and tucked my silver twine to go from the balloons to the panda's hand.

Thank you so much for looking!

Comfort and Joy

Hello, friends, Mindy with you this afternoon. Our challenge sample card for this week's challenge "Holly Days" add holly and/or poinsettias to your card.  I love poinsettias, especially making the dimensional ones from paper.

There is a really exquisite stamp set in the Classy Cards 'n Such online store, from Heartfelt Creations called Sparkling Poinsettia Candle, that has three small poinsettias at the base of the candle. I stamped the stamp on watercolor paper, and colored the entire image with watercolor and then glittered the melted wax portion with glitter. Using the Layered Poinsettia Flower from Spellbinders, die cut the smaller petals enough for three flowers. On my Paper Blossoms Molding Mat using my Paper Blossom Tool Kit, I shaped and molded, then adhered the layers of petals and centers to create the dimensional flowers that will be attached to the stamped image. 

To create the card background, I die cut the A2 Filigree Delight from Spellbinders from a Kraft colored stock. Then topped it with an oval cut from off white stock, using the oval die from the same A2 Filigree Delight die set.

I then fussy cut the candle image and glued it to the oval base using my favorite white glue, Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive. The sentiment that comes with the candle stamp was used to complete the card design.

I hope you have enjoyed my card, and will join our card challenge this week.

Christmas Magic

Hello stamping friends!  This week's challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such is to make a project with Holly or a Poinsettia.

The paper is from a 12x12 paper pad by Heartfelt Creations called Sparkling Poinsettia.This is a paper pad that will make all my Christmas cards with lots left over.

The sentiment is from Noel Christmas Ornaments, by JustRite, and the little scroll underneath is from Live, Love, Laugh also by JustRite Stamps.

The poinsettia was fussy cut three times and stacked with  Joy Small Foam Pads between each layer. I also covered the holly leaves and the poinsettia with Wink of Stella.

Now -- it's your turn!  This is a fun challenge and you can make a Christmas card to send to someone. We would love to see what you would do with this challenge!

Have a Happy stamping day!
