Sending Love your Way

Monday, March 19, 2018

Happy Monday friends. I'm back today with a CAS card featuring the beautiful Poppy Pocket Card die from Spellbinders.  I had a hard time capturing the embossed detail the die provides with my photo but IRL, it's there.  

I added a simple sentiment and a rounded corner and my card is done. Thanks for your visit.

Love for Whimsy Stamps - Having fun with Alcohol inks

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

Hi friends. I have a fun alcohol inked background card to share with you today for Whimsy Stamps. I started by making my background with some various alcohol inks in blues. I did add in a bit of silver mixative as well.

I then die cut this panel after it was dry with the Love die which is from the Card Builder - Hearts of Love die set from Whimsy stamps. {ALERT} - this die is currently on sale for only $10 - which is $14 off the regular price.

I die cut it two more times with black card stock and then inlaid them all back together.  I finished off the card with a stamped supporting sentiment and the gorgeous Winter Wishes enamel dots.

I Love You for TupeloDesignsLLC

Monday, March 12, 2018

Hi friends. I'm back today with another card using products available at TupeloDesignsLLC.

For my card, I started by blending on some Wilted Violet Distress Ink onto my top folding white card base.  I then die cut the Linked Circles Cover Panel die from Reverse Confetti and added it over the top. I did want to note that after I die cut the large panel die, I ran it through my Big Shot again with a stitched rectangle die from MFT.

I then die cut the love portion of the sentiment using Neat & Tangled's Love Notes die. The top portion was cut from some glitter cardstock with the outline portion die cut from vellum. I finished off the card with a white heat embossed sentiment and some sparkling clear sequins.

Thanks so much for dropping by today. Crafty hugs!

Love you for Whimsy Stamps - with an Alcohol Inked Background

Thursday, March 8, 2018

Hi friends - welcome back to my blog. I pulled out my alcohol inks today to use with a new stamp set from Whimsy Stamps - Harvest Wreaths.

I started by creating my background with my alcohol inks (linked down below) to create my background. I adore the background and the colors. 

I then decided to stamp on my background after it was completely dry. I let mine dry overnight.  I stamped one of the wreath images from Harvest Wreaths and then I stamped the sentiment. I matted the panel on some black card stock.

I was worried that the ink might not take to it properly but after I let the stamped panel dry for a bit, there were no problems.

Thanks for dropping by today. Crafty hugs!

You're so Wonderful for TupeloDesignsLLC

Hi friends. I'm back today with a card for TupeloDesignsLLC.  The store has been adding tons of new products lately and many are available at a discount. And don't forget that there is FREE shipping offered inside the US with no minimum purchase required. 

I wanted to play again with the Wonderful Florals from Concord & 9th. This time, I used some Ken Oliver Color Burst powders on my background. I used Prussian Blue and Indigo. Once the panel was dry, I heat embossed the large floral image onto my panel.  I then heat embossed the small portion of the sentiment with white embossing powder onto black card stock.  

Thanks for stopping by today friends - crafty hugs!

March Whimsy Stamps Release Day #4

Sunday, March 4, 2018

Hi friends. I've got two cards to share with you today using new March release products from Whimsy Stamps.

For today's cards, I am using the new Shaker Maker Rectangle Dies. Don't you just love the name of that set? I wanted to do something a bit different with the set for my first card so I ran the inside portion of the die several times through a card panel until the whole front was die cut. I then added the die cut panel over a piece of rainbow colored patterned paper for a fun look peeking through.  

I finished the card with a stamped sentiment which is from the Farmhouse Wreaths set and some enamel dots.

For my second card, I used the dies more how they were intended.  I die cut a frame from some patterned paper and then used the inside bits that were left over from my first card for the shaker portion. 

I stamped onto the acetate with Black Stazon ink with a sentiment from the new Fly By stamp set. It's really hard to read, I know, and I should have used white but I didn't have any.  It says Congrats. I adore the fun frame with the fun stitching detail that this die gives.
