Faith, Trust & a Little Pixie Dust with CC Designs

Don’t you just love cheerful cards? I have a really cute and simple card to share with you today, featuring the newly-released Tinks Stamp Set by CC Designs.

Here’s how to make the card:

  • Stamp the image from the Tinks Stamp Set on some X-Press It Blending Card with alcohol markers.
  • Fussy-cut the image using precision snips.
  • Add Stardust stickles to the wings and set this aside to dry for about half an hour.
  • Cut a panel of Neenah solar white card stock measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Adhere this panel on an A2-size notecard.
  • Ink-up the panel using the Treeline Stencil with some blending brushes and 3 colors of pink dye inks.
  • Adhere the focal image on the card with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the sentiment on some black card stock. Sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat-set with the heating tool.
  • Adhere the sentiment on the card.
  • Finish the card design by adhering a few yellow stars to the background.

Isn’t she adorable? I hope you got inspired today. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!


CC Designs January Release

Welcome to the C.C Designs January Release Social Media Hop! Hop along for your chance to WIN 1 of 2 $15 G.C to the store! We will pull one from Instagram and one from the blog comments. We are celebrating the arrival of 4 NEW Stamp sets and a darling Heart Inchies die in the C.C Designs Store. The Design Team has been giving you previews all week and now we are sharing our BEST inspirations for Release Day to encourage you to shop ’til you drop. You should have come from Sandy Le Doux (copic_diva’s) account.

Here’s my first project featuring the Heart Duos and the Heart Inchies Die Set:

I stamped the images on some Express-It card stock and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out.

The background was made by die-cutting the Heart Inchies Die set on some Neenah Solar white card stock. I adhered some acetate sheet and foam-adhesive to create my shaker well, and used some iridescent sequins as my shaker element. I closed the shaker by adhering some Doodlebug pattern paper.

I adhered the images with some liquid glue and added some enamel hearts with the sentiment to finish the design.

The next card is super simple. I did the same steps above but added a die-cut heart in the middle, before adding the image that I colored.

The sentiment is from a a strip of sentiments that I collected over the years and I thought that this was the perfect one to use for this card. Here’s another look:

We Otter Be Friends with CC Designs

I have been making a lot of holiday-themed cards lately and I wanted to take a break from that. Luckily, I have this Otters Stamp Set and coordinating dies by CC Designs that I can play with. I always like having just-because cards in my stash to send to family and friends.

Here’s how I made it:

  • Cover an A2-size watercolor panel with Pink, Yellow and orange watercolors. Let this dry for about half an hour.
  • Temporarily adhere the stencil to the background panel with Pixie Spray. Use the stencil and palette knife to spread texture paste for added interest. Let this dry for half an hour and adhere on an A2-size notecard.
  • Stamp the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and color the images in with alcohol markers.
  • Die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.
  • Adhere the focal images on the card.
  • Stamp the sentiment on some black card stock with Versamark ink and speinkle some white embossing powder. Use heating tool to heat-set the sentiment.
  • Adhere the sentiment on the card with liquid glue.
  • Finish the design by adding some stars.

This is honestly one of the quickest cards I’ve ever made! I hope I have given you some inspiration today. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by!
