Bee Happy!

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing this card over on the Newton's Nook Designs blog featuring the adorable Captivated Kittens stamp set.

We recently paired up with Therm O Web designs and I had so much fun using the Toner Cards with Deco Foil so I decided to create another card using the polka dot background. 

I stamped, embossed and colored up the image using Copic markers. I also ink blended the circle cut from the Circle Frames Die. I hope you like my card. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day :)

A Little Note

 Hi everyone! Today on the La-La Land Crafts blog we are all featuring projects using the April Release. I had so much fun creating this card using the new stamps and dies!!

I started off by stamping the little birdie using mostly Distress Inks. I then added some shading with with my Copic markers. I also used the coordinating die set to cut her out!! I love that there is a matching die set! I ink blended the background layer that was cut from the Scalloped Rectangles Die. For the birdhouse I used the new Awakening paper pack and some pink card stock.

I then decorated the card with the branches and flowers. I stamped and embossed the sentiment and used foam tape for the bird as well. For a finishing touch I added the pink pearls. I hope you like my card. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day :)

Products used:

Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass, Speckled Egg, Weathered Wood
Die Ink: Lawn Fawn Mermaid

Spellbinders Stained Glass Bouquet Collection Dies

Hi everyone! I am so excited to share a couple cards I created using some amazing dies from Spellbinders! These dies are from Becca Feeken's beautiful Stained Glass Bouquet Collection.

These cards came together pretty quick and easy! For my first card featuring the Radiant Oval Dies I cut out each die and used the outline dies to cut out the flowers and the oval shape. I inked both the image and the oval using Distress Inks.

The gold accented patterned papers are from a 2019 Spellbinders Card Kit. I used my new April Large Die of the Month Universal Curved Border Set to cut out the scalloped trim. Even though it was made for a slimline card it still worked great for my A2 sized card. I added the trim of gold mirror cardstock from the Card Kit of the month. I also cut out the sentiment using the Our Favorite Font Dies from the Small Die of the Month December 2019 which is on sale now!

For my second card I used the outline dies on all the cuts and cut out an additional outline only cut of the flowers so I could ink them using purple Distress Inks. I cut out several flowers and a couple leaves.

 I also trimmed the large die cut to have the scroll look on all four corners. I used the Thank You dies from the same word die set which has several sentiments to choose from. For a finishing touch I added shimmer pen over the flowers and a splash of iridescent sequins to the corners of my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you will check out the Spellbinders store for some fabulous products and this Becca Feeken collection is on sale right now along with a ton of great products from the Spring Cleaning Warehouse Sale!! I hope you like my cards. Have a great day :)

All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to use Therm O Web products with Newton's Nook Designs stamps! There are prizes too! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win! I'm so excited to share some new to me products from Therm O Web that I used along with my favorite Newton's Nook Designs stamps and dies!! Adding the foils really adds a "wow" factor to my cards. 

For my first card I stamped and embossed this adorable gnome from the Gnome Garden stamps. I colored the images with Copic markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies. This is my first time using foils on my projects and they are so much fun!! For the background I used the deco foil Kraft Love Blooms Toner Card Front along with deco foil Transfer Sheets in Rainbow Shattered Glass. 

I cut out the layer using the NND Framework Dies. I also used the Circle Frames Dies to create a grass and sky background with the Clouds Stencil and Distress Inks to help the image stand out against the beautiful foiled background. The rainbow foil gives my card such a "WOW" effect!!

For my second card I used one of my favorite images from the Smitten Kittens stamps. I stamped, embossed, colored it with Copic markers and cut it out using the coordinating dies. For the background  I used the deco foil Dainty Hearts Toner Card Front along with the deco foil Transfer Sheets in Rainbow Shattered Glass. I cut the sides of the panel using the scalloped die from the NND Slimline Frames and Portholes Die. I trimmed the foil scraps down and adhered them to the card base using the icraft Easy-Tear Tape in 1/4 in. 

To help the kitties stand out against beautiful foiled hearts background I cut out a heart from the Heart Frames Die and ink blended it with Distress Inks. I also stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set and embossed it onto the banner from the Banner Trio Dies. I hope you like my cards :)

Just BEE-Cause

Hi everyone! I have a card to share today featuring the Just Bee-cause stamps from the new La-La Land Crafts April 2021 release. This may be my favorite!!

I stamped, embossed and colored up this adorable little bee holding the rose using Copic markers. All the images are so cute but I especially adore this one. For the blue background panel I cut out the panel from the Celebrate Paper Pack. I also used the new Awakening Paper Pack for the floral strip. I used the Scalloped Rectangle Dies to add scallops to the sides of the pink cardstock. 

I also used the new Rise and Shine Background Stamp on the hexagon. I love the new Hexagon dies and the different versions that all coordinate together. I stamped and embossed the sentiment and added the iridescent sequins for a finishing touch :) This release is packed full of so many great stamps and dies! I hope you will stop by the shop and check out the new products. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you like my card. Have a great day :)
