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!

CC Designs NOVEMBER Release – OTTERS

HELLO and welcome to the November Reveal Day by CC Designs. The Design Team is so excited to share with you a few projects that we created showcasing the ADORABLE Otters Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut them all out. I colored a few images and you will see more samples in the next few days.

The background panel was ink blended using two different stencils with some dye inks. I used my black gel pen to trace the outline of the heart stencil to give it more dimension. I adhered this panel to an A-2 size notecard.

Since the background pattern is quite busy, I wanted to diffuse the colors a little bit by adding some vellum that I die-cut using a heart die from my stash. I adhered this onto the background panel using my tape runner. I foam-mounted the focal image for added dimension (just to make it stand out a little!).

I finished my card design by adding the sentiment that I heat-embossed with white embossing powder.

CC Designs NOVEMBER Release – SNOWMAN INCHIES

HELLO and welcome to the November Reveal Day by CC Designs. The Design Team is so excited to share with you a few projects that we created showcasing the ADORABLE Snowman Inchies Stamp Set and Coordinating dies that perfectly coordinates with the Inchies Circle Metal Die and the Snow Metal Die.

I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut them all out.

I also die-cut the word “Snow” with the Snow Metal Die on some red card stock and used my white gel pen to create the “snow”.

Next, I die-cut some pattern paper from Sunny Studios called Very Merry 6×6 Paper Pad that already has a “snowy background scene” so it was easy to just adhere the colored images on this panel. I did die-cut the snowbank using a die from my collection for added interest and texture and foam-mounted it onto the card.

I finished my design by stamping the sentiment. Here’s another look:

Cute Penguins Christmas Card with CC Designs

Hello! I am so happy that you stopped by today. I am back with another inspiration today, showcasing the Cute Penguins Stamp Set and coordinating dies with the Joy Noel Metal Die by CC Designs.

I didn’t want to use traditional Christmas colors and decided to do some pinks, blues and mint green.

Here’s how I made the card:

  • Stamp the images on some alcohol-friendly card stock and die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.
  • Color the images in with alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • Die-cut the word “Joy” using the Joy Noel Metal Die on some dark pink card stock that matches the color of the images.
  • Adhere the patterned paper on some A2-size notecard.
  • Die-cut the snow banks and little trees with some white and patterned paper.
  • Assemble the card by adhering the snowbank with the trees first, and layer the other panel using tape runner.
  • Adhere the focal images and the word “Joy” on the card with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the sentiment using some Dark Red dye ink.

I LOVE these cute little penguins so much! Aren’t they so adorable? Who wouldn’t like to receive a cute Christmas card like this?! This stamp set is a must-have for any stamper.

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

CC Designs October Release – CUTE PENGUINS

HELLO and welcome to the October Reveal Day by CC Designs. The Design Team is so excited to share with you a few projects that we created showcasing the CUTE PENGUINS Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

I started by stamping the images from the Cute Penguins stamp set on some Neenah solar white card stock with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut them all out.

Next, I used a die from my collection to create a box card and also die-cut the birch trees to create my winter scene. I assembled them quickly with liquid glue.

I finished my design by stamping the sentiment on the pattern paper strip and adhered on the card using my tape runner. I added the red bow to the middle of the birch tree for that extra cuteness.

CC Designs October Release – Elf Inchies

HELLO and welcome to the October Reveal Day by CC Designs. The Design Team is so excited to share with you a few projects that we created showcasing the ADORABLE Elf Inchies stamp set and dies that perfectly coordinates with the Inchies Circle Metal Die.

I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut them all out.

I used the Inchies Circle Metal Die to die-cut some pattern paper and adhered the positive die-cuts on an A2 size panel. I kept the negative die-cut and adhered some acetate to this piece and added some foam tape to create my shaker well. I used some pink iridescent sequins as my shaker element and closed the shaker.

Next, I added the images on each little window with liquid glue. I adhered the sentiment that I stamped and heat-embossed with some white embossing powder. I finished my design by adding some red and pink jewels to their caps.
