Give Thanks



Good morning all, hope you all are having a good Wednesday!  This morning I would like to share a card with you using the Fruit Note (digi) stamp.  This is a beautiful image, just perfect for your Thanksgiving cards!!

Fruit Note

The image was printed off using the colored digi.  I did resize the image slightly.  Using the new Nuvo Glue Pen, along with Fairy Tale Lavender, Sunny Daze and Sunset the sparkly was added.  The background was created using a leaf embossing folder from Sizzix.  The cardstock  was then layered together slightly offset.  Using Nuvo's Glue Pen and Sunset glitter around the edges of the card base.

Fruit Note

The sentiment was printed and die cut using Sizzix's Funky Label dies.  The edges were inked and placed on the card using foam dots.

Fruit Note

Leaves were cut using svg files and my Silhouette.  They were inked with Bamboo Leaves and Spiced Marmalade.  Small leaves were punched using a Fisker punch.  To finish off I added bows behind the leaves and to the bottom.  This is a really simple card using the colored digi images, but with a little glitter and sparkle it turned out so beautiful!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy your day and remember....Keep Stamping!!

Don't Be A Scardey Cat


Good morning all, hope your day is off to a great start.  This morning I'm sharing a spooky Halloween card with you.

Halloween Cat Stamp
To create this card I embossed a piece of black cardstock with a Sizzix embossing folder.  On the raised areas I used Pure Platinum Mousse to give that shimmer look.  On the DP creepy eyeballs were added using Crystal Drops Ebony BlackWhiteApple Green and Dandelion Yellow.  The little ghost was die cut using a Recollections die eyes were added using Crystal Drops White and Ebony Black.  To the edges I used a glue pen and Sparkling Snow glitter for that little sparkly.  To give the DP edges a little pop I used a glue pen and Sassy Silver glitter.

Halloween Cat StampThe image is the Halloween Cat and it was stamped using black ink and embossed with Clear EP.  Next I took a sponge dauber and Spiced Marmalade ink and inked in the moon.  A glue pen, Sassy Silver and Pistachio glitter was used to add the sparkle to the image. Bats were die cut using a Recollections die from sticker paper and glittered using Black Suede glitter.  Little eyes were added using Ebony Black and White Crystal Drops.  They were adhered to the card using foam dots.

Don't you just love all the new stamp sets this month!!  I have really enjoyed playing with them and I love the Halloween stamp set it is to cute.  So that is the why  I choose the Halloween Cat set to use for the reveal. My card is a circle spinner card using the cute bat to fly around the card!  Here is a tutorial on how to make this design.


The DP was die cut using Spellbinder's Circle Die.  The image is the digi version and it was re sized and printed out.  Using a glue pen sparkle was added using Black Ice and Orange Surprise glitter, it was then die cut using the next smaller circle die. A strip of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape was placed around the card base and glittered using Sassy Silver glitter.



The green slime was created using dimensional glue on a piece of the left over backing from the 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape.


Next while the glue was wet I covered it with Parisian Mist glitter.


To remove the excess glitter I turned it upside down.  It was then allowed to dry overnight.  Once the glue was dry it comes off of the backing paper very easily.  It was then placed on the top of the card.



I didn't really like the look of the penny, so I placed a piece of 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape on a piece of cardstock , punch a 1" circle out, glittered using Sassy Silver glitter and glued it on top of the penny.  The bats were cut using my Silhouette.  The larger bat was glued on top of the penny.   I wish you could see how cute the little bat is flying around the spooky cat!!  

Here is a quick peak at projects to come using the new stamp sets.  I hope you will stop back by to see the full projects!!

Friends Warm the Heart


Good morning everyone I hope you had a wonderful weekend!!  I am sharing a shadowbox with you today using the new Eskimo Kisses stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I cut the shadowbox along with the trees and snow banks using my Silhouette.  For the blue background I wanted to add some snow, using Super Thick White EP lightly sprinkled and heating from the underneath I wish able to achieve the look.  Small snowflakes were punched using Fisker punch and sticker paper.  The backing was removed and Sparkling Snow was applied.  Small drops of Caribbean Ocean Crystal Drops were placed in the center.




Next it was time to create my scene.  The image was stamped, colored using Tombow Markers and fussy cut out.  Sparkle was added to the sweet little girl and snowman using a dimensional glue along with Swan Wing, Waterfall and Sparkling Snow glitter.  



I used brushable glue with a small brush on the edges of the trees and glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.  






The snow banks were glittered using brushable glue and Diamond Dust glitter.  I then lightly brushed brushable glue back along the edges only and added Waterfall glitter.


The sentiment was stamped with Memento Bahama Blue ink.  The piece were all assembled inside the box. 

I really love how pretty this turned out!!  Thanks so much for stopping by have a wonderful day and remember.....Keep Stamping!!
