Less than 10 minutes card!


Hello!

Erica back on the blog today, probably still suffering a post-Valentine's Day sugar rush. I'm not much for celebrating Va-Da unless it involves chocolate or cake. I'd be lying if I said I would turn down a diamond but we are not big Va-Da people here. Va-Da is short and hip for Valentine's Day, don't'cha know? No? Maybe that sugar rush is making me say cray-cray things...

Right, so a card. That's what y'all are here for? Ok, then, let's get to it. It's gonna be short and sweet today (no, for real this time) as this card is super quick and simple. There is no colouring, just a quick stamping and diecutting and some adhesives and bam!



Using Kraft card stock I had laying around in a very convenient size, I grabbed my stunning Sweet Rose stamp as well as VersaMark ink and my trusted anti-static tool. Oh and my Mini-MISTI. Placing the stamp slightly off the piece of card stock, I dusted generously with the anti-static tool before inking it up with VersaMark. After stamping, I sprinkled clear embossing powder on it and set it with my heat tool. It's such a simple technique and the results are gorgeous. Next I stamped the sentiment 'Happy Birthday' from the same set on the bottom of the panel. The same routine was done here as with the flower: first anti-static tool, second VersaMark ink and third gold embossing powder.

The other card stock pieces are also bits I had lying around, another reason this card was so quick! Layering these with foam tape and double sided tape creates different heights and dimensions. As a final few touches I added a label with diecut numbers in sparkly gold card stock, 70 for my mother's birthday later this year as well as a twine ribbon bow. And no card of mine is complete without a few sequins, right? Yeah, you guys know me so well, don't you? A few from Pink Champagne did the trick.

And that, my friends, was it. This card was so quick to put together thanks to all the bits and pieces I have laying around, I'm really making an effort to use all those ready cut bits before cutting up new ones. Worked out quite well here, didn't it?








Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week!

Hugs from Erica

Counting Down!

Hi its Karen on the blog with you today.

I think I may be in denial about Christmas.  It just seems to be sneaking up very very fast.  I know I have loads to do and really need to get going. Hopefully posting this Christmas Ornament may just help. This super cute little image from Kennedy Grace Creations is such a joy to colour and even though he's a christmas critter I think he could be used all year round on projects.  I used a die cut from Frantic Stamper Inc to cut the ornament in very sparkly paper.  Then popped the image up on foam.  Added some silver twine and there you have a super cute and easy ornament to adorn the tree or a special gift tag.  I think these would look lovely against shiny white wrapping paper.

I know it looks huge in the photo but its approximately 2.5 x 2.5 inches in size.


Have a great day!

Matching Poinsettia Card and Tag

Rachel here today with a card featuring a peek at a future set.


I decided to create a matching card and tag set to use this Christmas season. The Poinsettias are gorgeous and so much fun to color!


Right now, these images are in digital format, so I arranged them in a Word document and then printed them out on some Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used my KGC stitched rectangle die to cut out the portion of the images that I wanted to use and then used my Copics to color them in and added shadows around them. I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment on top of my panel and then heat embossed in gold. I adhered my panel to a Fog Gray card base to add a little contrast.


Next up, I used a tag die to cut out another image for the front of my tag and then used the same process to color it in. I cut another tag from some white cardstock and then heat embossed my sentiment on it. I adhered the sentiment to the back of my poinsettia image to create a completed tag which also hid any bleeding from…
