Happy Birthday Card with CC Designs

I have been building up my stash of birthday cards and my project today features one of my favorite stamp sets from CC Designs called Birthday Critters with the Birthday Critters Die Set.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • stamp the images on some Neenah Classic Crest Solar white card stock.
  • color images in with alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • die-cut the image using the coordinating die.
  • die-cut some birthday-themed pattern paper and adhere on some A2-size, top-folding notecard.
  • die-cut the Happy Birthday Circle Frame die on some Neenah 100 lb. card stock.
  • use the circle shaker pouch and add some confetti as the shaker element. Adhere and close the shaker on the card.
  • adhere the Happy Birthday die-cut on the circle shaker using liquid glue.
  • finish the card design by adhering the focal image on the card.

I love the simplicity of this fun shaker card. I hope you like this project today and got inspired. Below, you will find links to the supplies used to create this project(s).

  • use the image from the Tranquil Tides stamp Set and start randomly stamping the image for added texture. Remove the masking tape.
  • adhere this card panel on some A2-size top folding notecard.
  • cut a strip of the pattern paper from the A Dog’s Life Paper Pad and adhere on the card front.
  • adhere the focal image on the card with liquid glue.

Happy YOU Day with Crafty Meraki

I am so excited to be on the Crafty Meraki blog and over here, sharing this cute Birthday Card, showcasing the Celebrate You Stamp Set along with the Party Time 6×6 Stencil and Peridot Opal Gems.

Here’s how I made the card:

  • Place the Celebrate You stamp image inside the MISTI Stamping Tool and stamp a few times on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2.
  • Use Copic Multi-liner to draw the branch and a few leaves.  [Designer tip: I drew the branch and leaves so that the image did not look like it was floating in the air!]
  • Color the images in with Spectrum Noir TriBlend Brush Markers.
  • Stamp the same image on some masking paper and fussy-cut with precision snips. Adhere on the card panel.
  • Prepare the Party Time 6×6 Stencil by spraying some Pixie Spray and let it dry for about half an hour.
  • Place the stencil on top of the colored panel.
  • Use some blending brushes and a few dye inks to ink-up the panel.  I listed all the inks on the supply list below for ease of reference.
  • Use the same blending brushes and the same dye inks to add up more color to the front panel.  [Designer tip: make sure you are applying the colors gently so that you would have a smooth blend of colors.]
  • Use some tweezers to remove the masking paper.
  • Stamp the sentiment on some black card stock with Versamark ink.  Sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat-set using the heating tool.
  • Finish the card design by adhering some Peridot Opal Gems to the card and use some white gel pen to add some stars and dots for added interest and texture.

I hope you like the card today and got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked for your convenience.  Thanks for stopping by today, and happy stamping!

Cas-ual Fridays March Release Day 4 – Swirls Stencil

Hello Cas-ual Fridays fans!  It’s the last day of the March release and the design team is showcasing the Swirls Stencil.

 

 

To make my card, I used a clouds stencil from my collection to ink up some Bristol Smooth white card stock using Worn Lipstick,  Mustard Seed and Speckled Egg distress oxide inks.  I stamped my image from the Somebunny Stamp set and used my precision snips to fussy-cut the image.    I used glossy accents for added texture to the balloon.  I set this aside to dry for about half an hour.

 

 

Using the new Swirls Stencil and some Black Soot Distress Ink, I used my ink blending tool to add the black dots to frame my image.  I LOVE this new stencil so much because it is so versatile and can be used in so many different ways to add details to your paper crafting projects.

 

Next, I adhered the image on the colored panel with liquid glue.

 

 

I finished my card design by stamping the sentiment with some Versafine Onyx black ink.  Here’s another look:

Birthday Card with CAS-ual Fridays

Hello my crafty friends!  I’m back on the blog today for Cas-ual Fridays Stamps sharing a fun birthday card, showcasing one of my favorite stamp set from the latest release, called Salty Stamp Set along with the Margarita Glass Die and Chunky Chevron 6×6 Stencil.

I started by stamping the Margarita glass image on some Bristol smooth white card stock with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  I colored the image in using my Zig Clean Real Brush Markers then used the coordinating die to die-cut it out.
For added texture, the background was made by using the Chunky Chevron 6×6 stencil on some Bristol smooth A2-size panel with Worn Lipstick distress oxide ink.  I used my distress sprayer to add more depth and texture to the background.  I foam-mounted the focal image onto the colored panel and added some white dots to the image using my gel pen.

I adhered my focal panel on some A2-size notecard with my tape runner.  I put this panel back to my Misti stamping tool and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.  For more texture, I used some Stardust stickles to add some glittery shine on the “salt”.
I finished my design by adding some iridescent sequins to the background.  Here’s another look:
This stamp set is so versatile and definitely a must-have for any stamper, like me!  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.

Birthday Gnomes Card with Trinity Stamps

Hello all! I hope you all had a great week. Happy Saturday! My Canon camera finally gave up on me so while I am waiting for the replacement (it takes 3 to 4 weeks to get to me now since I am overseas), I will be sharing some projects on the blog with you instead.

For my card today, I used a LOT of products from the shop. I am showcasing the adorable Make A Wish stamp set, Just For You stamp set, Create with Trinity stamp set. The dies I used for this card are the Stitched Card Panels and Windows with the Serious Celebration die set.

I started by using the biggest die from the Stitched Card Panels & Windows die set to die cut some Bristol smooth white card stock. I ink-blended this panel with some distress oxide inks with the Trinity Blending Buddy brushes and used my paintbrush and to flick some water on this panel for added texture. I picked the excess water with some paper towel.

I die-cut some Neenah solar white card stock using the windows panel die. I foam-mounted this piece on the ink-blended background for added dimension.

I stamped and colored the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers to color the images in. Since I didn’t get the coordinating dies, I used my precision snips to fussy-cut the images. I foam mounted them onto the window panel for added dimension.

I love coloring my images with bright colors!

For added texture, I die-cut the stars from the Serious Celebration die set and adhered them on the card with some liquid glue. I adhered the colored panel on an 8 1/2 by 7 inches slimline card base. Here’s a closer look:

To finish my design I stamped the sentiment from the Create with Trinity stamp set and Just For You stamp set.

I hope you like my card today. The supplies I use are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
