Easter Jubilee

The Greetery

February 24, 2020

Good Morning Friends! I hope you all had a Wonderful weekend. Last week I got my order from The Greetery and I could not wait to create a few cards with Easter Jubilee Set. You know how much I love Betsy and everything she creates... well this little kit just might be one of my favorites from her! So quick and easy to use.


I started my cards by using the stencils. There are three stencils included and they are the same size as an A2 card base. They are very easy to use and line up. I created my card panels in a few minutes.


Next, I used my MISTI and the Easter Jubilee Stamp Set to add the details to my stenciled images. This step really adds a lot to the stenciled focal point.


To finish my cards, I used the Easter dies and die cut my letters. I attached them to my card panel with liquid glue. The stenciled area creates the perfect backdrop for the letters and makes it very easy to line everything up.


To finish my cards, I stamped my sentiments (Happy and Blessings) onto the banner that is also included in the set. I then attached the banner to my card front with foam adhesive.


What do you think? Did you already buy the kit? If you are hesitant I can't encourage you enough. These cards were so easy to create. I can't wait to make a few more...
Enjoy your day,





Happy Easter

Pink & Main

February 23, 2020


Hello Friends! Today I am on the Pink & Main Blog sharing an Easter card that uses some products from their latest release. The new release is so much fun and has a little bit of everything! What is your favorite? There are so many great sets being released this month, it is definitely hard to choose.  



I started my card by stamping my images from the Easter Eggs Stamp Set. I colored everything with Copic markers and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.


Next, I began working on my card layout. I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to die cut a card panel. I then used the Thin Alpha Dies to die cut Happy Easter. I quickly blended a little Distress Oxide Ink onto each letter before attaching them to my card panel. I am loving these letters! To finish my card, I die cut a rectangle with the Reverse Scallop Rectangle Die to create my frame. I ink blended some lime green ink onto the inside piece, and then inlaid it back into my frame before attaching it to my card panel. Lastly, I attached my Easter images onto my Scallop Frame with foam adhesive.


Thanks for joining me today! I hope you get a chance to stop by Pink & Main and check out their latest release.
Enjoy your day,

Reverse Confetti

Cheerful Pals

February 21, 2020

Good Morning and Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great week. I am stopping by quickly today to share two card for the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge. This month the theme is Encouragement and Congratulations, so I thought the Cheerful Pals stamp and die set would be perfect.



I stamped my images from the Cheerful Pals stamp set and colored them with Copic markers. I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. On my first card, I stamped my sentiment with the OMG stamp set and then added my cheerleader. 



On my next card, I used a card by my friend Amy Kolling as my inspiration. Amy and I spent a few days together at the beginning of the month and she created a make and take with a similar layout. I thought it would work perfect for this set too. Thanks again Amy for the inspiration!



Thanks for joining me today. I hope you get a chance to play along with the Reverse Confetti Challenge this month too.


Enjoy your day,

Sweet Celebration

Ink To Paper

February 19, 2020

Good Morning Friends and Welcome Back! I hope you all are doing well. Today, I am sharing a "sweet" birthday card using some fun products from Ink to Paper. I am loving the products they sent me and the Sweet Celebration set is no exception. 



I started my card by ink blending Distress Oxide Ink onto Distress Watercolor Cardstock in a variety of colors. I then used the Sweet Celebration Dies to die cut my images. This is such a great set of dies, lots of possibilities and fun images included! Next, I spritzed my die cut images with water and set them aside to dry.



For my card panel, I die cut the Border Bling: Tiny Hearts Die from white cardstock. I then mounted this to a Hibiscus Burst A2 card base. Next, I used the Simply Stitched A2 Vertical Die Set and die cut a rectangle from white cardstock. I mounted this to my card front with foam adhesive. 



To finish my card, I mounted my cupcake and floral images with foam adhesive and liquid glue to my card front. Lastly, I used the Sweet Celebration Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment onto a label (also included in the Sweet Celebration Die Set). I then attached this to my card panel.
Thanks for joining me today. I will be back soon to share another project with you all.
Enjoy your day,


Love & Happy Thoughts

Trinity Stamps

February 17, 2020

Good Morning Friends and Happy Monday! I hope you all had a Wonderful weekend! Today I am on the Trinity Stamp Blog. I am sharing a card that uses an alcohol ink background along with some fun stamps from the New Release.


I started my card by creating my background. I used alcohol inks and Yupo paper. Once that was dry, I die cut a stitched rectangle from my background with the Slimline Card Series: Frame and Fold Die Set. I then stamped the Love and Happy Thoughts image onto my rectangle with VersaMark ink. Next, I heat set my image with black embossing powder. You want to make sure your heat gun is very hot and you keep it moving when you are using it with Yupo paper...otherwise your paper will warp.  


For my card design, I used a Blending Buddy Brush and ink blended a card panel with a soft pink ink. I trimmed this down and attached it to a strip of my Alcohol Ink paper that was leftover to make my card front. I mounted my Love and Happy Thoughts image onto a black cardstock mat and attached this to my card front with foam adhesive. 


Lastly, I stamped my sentiment from the Love and Stuff Sentiment Set onto a black cardstock banner and added white embossing powder.


I can't wait to get this card in the mail...I think it will bring a smile to someone's face. 

Enjoy your day,
Dana
