For my card today, I am featuring the uber fabulous Cardinal Seasons - Petal Pushers, both the stamps and the dies.

These dies are brilliant as they partially cut away some of the detail - such as the wing on the bird. Brilliant!

I started by stamping the cute little birds from the Cardinal Seasons - Petal Pushers stamp set along with the tree branch image for them to sit on.

I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I thought they would look nice against the woodgrain paper that is in the new Christmas Cottage paper collection. I die cut it with the largest die from the Scalloped Rectangle Frame die collection. I just love the detail it adds to the sides.

I glued the branch directly to the patterned paper and then added the birds with some foam tape, making sure to give the wing a bit of extra lift where it cuts out.

I then stamped the sentiment which is also from the Cardinal Seasons - Petal Pushers set and then die cut the top of it with the same die I used to cut the patterned paper so that it would match seamlessly.

 Here's another look. I hope you've enjoyed my project today and have been inspired.

For my project today, I am featuring the most adorable Happy Haunting set. I love the awesome sentiments in this set along with those precious little characters all dressed up for Halloween.

I started by coloring the cute little ghost and vampire images from the Happy Haunting set. I then fussy cut them out going right up to the stamped line.

{TIP} - when fussy cutting right to the line, take a black pen and swipe it over all the edges of your cut out. This will help hide any imperfections while fussy cutting.

I then die cut the awesome new Up a Tree die set, twice so I could have a fuller forest and have something to tuck my little cuties behind.

I took a piece of the super fun Wicked paper collection and added it to my top-folding card base. This paper collection came out last year and if you don't yet have it in your stash, it is absolutely perfect for all your Halloween crafting.


I then added my vampire first, then the back tree layer. I then added my ghost and finally added the top tree layer with some foam tape.

{TIP} - use black foam squares when adding black card stock items to your project. This way you won't be able to see the white foam when looking at your project from an angle.

My sentiment is also from the Happy Haunting set. I popped it up with some foam tape for dimension. It was at this point I decided my card needed just a bit of something else so I pulled out the new By the Light of the Moon dies.

This is an awesome die set as you get the partial moon, the full moon, lots of stars and even a smiley face you could put into the moon.  I added my moon so that a bit of it would hang off my card panel - this helps ground the scene a bit.

I finished the card with just a bit of white and black glaze pens for a bit of extra detail.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you've been inspired.

For my card today, I am featuring the gorgeous No Matter the Weather stamp set. I love all the layering images and images you can combine to create sweet little scenes.

I decided to create a wreath. I stamped each of the 3 layers two times each to create the whole wreath.

I then stamped the sentiment in the middle of my wreath along with a bow at the bottom.

I decided my panel needed some extra interest so I took one of the circle dies die from the new Scalloped Circle Frame set and dry embossed it around my wreath image.

I then trimmed this panel down, popped it up with some craft foam and added it to a card base where I had already adhered small strips of paper from the Sweater Weather paper collection.

This would be great card to mass produce if you were wanting to send lots of autumn love to friends and family. You could even make it simpler by stamping directly on the card base if you wanted to.

I have two cards to share with you today, both using the gorgeous Cherry Blossoms stamp set. For my first card, I started by stamping and fussy cutting several of the images from the set. I then colored them with Copic markers very simply.

I stamped the large Hugs sentiment, also from the Cherry Blossoms set onto a piece of patterned paper from the new Sweater Weather 6x6 collection.



For my second card, I once again, stamped and fussy cut a few of the images from the Cherry Blossoms stamp set. I added color to just the stems and branches and left the rest blank as I didn't want any coloring here to compete with the fun and colorful patterned paper I used, again from the Sweater Weather collection.

I hope you've enjoyed my cards today.

Ellie's Bauble for Whimsy Stamps

Monday, September 9, 2019

Hi friends and happy Monday. I've been sharing quite a few fall and Halloween cards lately but thought I'd mix it up today with a fun Christmas card using a new stamp from the latest Whimsy Stamps release, Ellie's Bauble.

Crissy, the illustrator behind these adorable elephants is beyond talented and super sweet to boot.  The facial expressions on her critters are just too cute. This sweet little Ellie is no exception.

I started by stamping, simple coloring with Copic markers and fussy cutting out sweet Ellie.  I then got to work on the rest of the card and had a hankering to use some patterned paper, which is something I don't do very often nowadays. 

I die cut a white circle from the Pierced and Stitched Circle dies so I could have a place to stamp my sentiment and to help ground Ellie.

The sentiment is actually two separate words and comes from two different sets - the You're my Jolly and the You're my Favorite. I popped Ellie up with some foam tape and then added some Glossy Accents to the little bauble.  Some enamel dots finish off the card.

As always, a big thank you for taking time to drop by. I appreciate the support and kind comments. Crafty hugs!   ~ Alanna

Two fun Fall Cards for LDRS Creative

Friday, September 6, 2019

Happy Saturday friends. I've got two cards for you today using some fun goodies from LDRS Creative. If you are short on time but still want to send a friend or loved one some happy mail this season, I hope these will inspire you to do so.

For both cards, I am using my favorite die from LDRS Creative, the Sunburst Rectangle Die. There are so many ways to use this die. It would make a great shaker card. Or you could inlay all the small pieces that fall out. Rest assured, you won't regret making this fun die a part of your collection at home.

I've paired it with some great sentiments from the Happy Fall Sentiments set and the Happy Fall paper collection.

I started by die cutting a piece of paper from the Happy Fall paper collection using the Sunburst Rectangle Die. I then stamped one of the sentiments from the Happy Fall Sentiments set onto a circle and then adhered it with foam tape over top of my die cut panel. 


Here is my second card. It's the exact same as my first except for I switched out the sentiment and the papers used. The sentiment is from the same Happy Fall Sentiments and the paper used is another sheet from the Happy Fall paper collection.


And here's a final look at both cards along with the fun Sunburst Rectangle Die.


I hope you've enjoyed my card share with you today. I'd love for you to leave a comment letting me know what your favorite season is. In Colorado, we have 4 distinct seasons and fall is my favorite.

Crafty hugs! ~ Alanna
