You Deserve A Treat Birthday Card

Hi crafty friends! Today at the La-La Land Crafts blog we are sharing inspiration with the theme of "Celebrate". I created a card featuring one of the adorable penguins from the Just Chill stamp set (product links and colors below)

First I stamped, embossed and colored up this cutie using Copics. I also cut and colored the hat from the Pardon My Frenchie stamps and put it on the penguin. I cut a rectangle of the polka dot patterned paper from the Celebrate Paper Pack and using my bone folder I scored a frame around the edges for added interested.

I cut out a scalloped rectangle and stamped the sentiment. Then I lightly distress inked the background. I trimmed some sparkly white glittered cardstock using the Double Stitched Hills Border Die. For a finishing touch I added sequins and sparkle to the balloon and hat.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day :)

Spellbinders Beautiful Sentiments Vignettes Collection

Hi crafty friends! Today I have some cards to share featuring dies from the Spellbinder's Beautiful Sentiments Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken. (Links for all the products are below)


This first card is featuring the Happy Anniversary Vignette. I cut the word die out twice in both white and gold foil cardstock. I also cut out flowers and leaves from the Universal Curved Border Set dies and colored them using Copic markers.


Using Distress Oxide Inks I blended a background cut out with the circle frame die included in the set. I adhered everything to a panel that was embossed using the Love Stripes Embossing Folder from Fun Stamper's Journey. For a finishing touch I added gemstones to the flower centers.


For the second card I cut out all the dies from the collection in white cardstock. I also cut out a second cut of the word die using silver foil cardstock to layer behind. I blended a background using blue Distress Oxides inks. I cut florals and leaves using colored cardstock and framed them around the diecut.


For a finishing touch I added gemstones again to the center of the flowers.

This is such a beautiful collection by Becca Feeken and I hope I have inspired you to check out these new products!

Soak Up The Sun

Hi everyone! Today over on the La-La Land Crafts blog we are creating cards with a "Tropical" theme. Thinking back to when I visited Hawaii and the turtles that swam in the waters inspired me to create this card:

For the scalloped layer I used the second to largest die from the Scalloped Rectangles die and did partial die-cutting technique.


Using Distress Oxide Inks and the Summer Is Here Layering Stencil I created an ocean background. I made a sandy shore layer to stamp and emboss the sentiment. The turtle was fun to create. I colored it using Copic markers and added the eyes using a black gel pen.

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share the reveals for Day 4 of the Newton's Nook Designs June Release. Today we have two new roundabout stamp sets! Here is what I created:


Using the new BBQ Roundabout I stamped, embossed and colored up the images with Copic markers. This is such a fun summer themed stamp set! I cut it out using the scalloped circle from the Circle Frames Die that coordinates perfectly with the Roundabout stamps. For the background layer I used the Gingham Stencil to dry emboss and add texture. 


I cut a layer of red checkered patterned paper and trimmed it with black cardstock. I stamped and embossed the sentiment to create a fun summer BBQ themed card!


For my second card I stamped and embossed the new Seashell Roundabout stamp and sentiment onto the scalloped rectangle from the Frames & Flags Die Set with gold embossing powder. I then colored up the seashells using very light colors of Copic markers. 


To add a finishing touch I added some tinted flatback pearls. I really like how this card turned out with the pastel color scheme :)

Newton's Nook Designs June Release Day 2

 


Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share with you the Day 2 reveals for the Newton's Nook Designs June Release!  Today we are featuring two new stamps and coordinating dies along with a layering Retro Sun & Palms Stencil! Here is what I created:


For my first card I created a serene scene using the new Summer Moments stamp set and coordinating dies. I stamped, embossed and colored them using Copic markers. For the blue ocean and sky background I used Distress Oxides inks along with the Clouds Stencil and Waves Stencil. I added some Nuvo Glimmer Paste to the waves to give it a sparkly finish.


For the sand I cut a strip out with the Land Borders Die and inked it up with Distress Inks and ink splatter. Then I stamped and embossed the sentiment. I love the little tote bag and seashell images that come in this set as well!

For my second card I used the new Retro Sun and Palms Stencil. I inked up the stencil off center and used blues for the water and pinks, yellows and oranges for the sun. I love how this retro stencil takes me back to the '80s and is reminiscent of the OP brand. Using black ink I used the palm trees and birds over the top. 

Then I colored up the kitty from the new Newton's Seashell stamp with Copics and used the coordinating die to cut him out. I embellished with some iridescent sequins and colored up some sand below the kitty.
