Holiday Cheer

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Traditional Christmas

There are lots of ways to interpret this theme: Red and Green Colors, Nativity Scenes, Santa’s, Snowmen, the list is endless!

We are showcasing Tim Holtz Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

My interpretation of traditional Christmas is red and green. The funny thing is, I almost never create a red and green Christmas card. It might have red and green in it, but never is my card solely red and green. I like blues a lot or pink and green together. I would say I usually use non traditional colors. But this week I’m sticking with red and green!!

I used the Layering Stencil Shifter Baubles by Tim Holtz to create my background. I ink blended Barn Door and Lucky Clover distress inks and then cut out this decorative rectangle using the Stitched Creative Rectangles die by Studio Katia.

I used the Fa La La stamp and die for my sentiment and Fog card stock as my background. I attached it all to a top folding card base.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Carefree Christmas

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Anything Goes

We are showcasing Penny Black Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Happy Thanksgiving week everyone!! I’m sure many of you have crazy, busy days this week like I do so I’ll keep this short and sweet. I made a simple card for this week’s challenge, but I absolutely love it!! This image by Penny Black is just so darn adorable!! The stamp set is called Carefree Christmas.

I sure wish I was having a carefree week!! Every year I participate in a craft fair that starts the day after Thanksgiving so every year the week before Turkey Day and the week of, are insanely hectic!! I’m trying to get all my craft fair stuff done by the end of today so I can dedicate tomorrow to helping out my Mom. She does most of the cooking and opens their house to all 20 of us (that’s siblings, spouses and kids) so the least I can do is head out there early and help her as much as I can. Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday so I don’t want to be stressing about what I still have left to do for the fair.

I colored my image with copic markers and then used the Falling Snow stencil by SSS over the top. I used Unicorn Dust for the snow on the ground and also on Teddy’s hat and little Mouse’s hat. I went over all the metal parts with Nuvo Crystal Glaze to give it that shiny look.

I used the largest Stitched Rectangle Frame by Lawn Fawn with Tonic Scarlet Organza Mirror Card for that beautiful red. I cut it out 4 more times using white card stock to pop it up for some dimension. Then I attached it to a top folding card base.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

I See Stars

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Starry Starry Night

We are showcasing Stampendous Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I am IN LOVE with this starry night sky. It’s so gorgeous in person.

I can’t decide what I love more, the Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel that I used with my Tim Holtz Stamptember stencil (Tim Holtz Hocus Pocus is similar) or the Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust. Both made this starry night sky absolutely beautiful!!

I used Bristol Smooth card stock and ink blended Tumbled Glass, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot distress inks using my new Simon Says Stamp Blender Brushes. YES! SSS has their very own beautifully colored Set of 5 Rainbow Pack Blender Brushes now!! And they’re a great price!!

I used the Tim Holtz Distress Splatter Brush along with Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust to start creating my starry sky. I also splattered Copic Opaque White and the combination of the two together makes for a beautiful star filled sky.

I colored this adorable image called Dragonfly Ride by Stampendous with my Copic markers. I used the Seeing Stars stamp set by SSS for the sentiment which I white heat embossed.

I created the tree line with my Mission Gold Watercolor Palette and a #4 round paint brush. I attached my image with foam tape to add a little dimension and shadow and added black craft foam to my card panel for a little more dimension. I attached it all to a Soft Navy background and then added it to a top folding black card base.

Look how gorgeous this sky turned out!!

The foam tape added just the right amount of dimension to my image.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Thankful For You

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Thank You/Thanksgiving

We are showcasing Hero Arts Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I used a stencil called Abstract Waves by Hero Arts this week. I love, love, LOVE this stencil. It’s so versatile and so beautiful. I was having so much fun with this stencil, that I made 2 cards.

Starting out with some Dark Chocolate card stock by SSS, I stenciled Golden Sand Kiss glitter polish by Cosmic Shimmer over the Abstract Waves. Wow!! It’s so gorgeous against the dark card stock.

I thought the Thanks and Leaves stamp set by SSS was perfect for this challenge. So I white heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of Burnt Orange card stock.

I used the Wonky Rectangles die to frame my sentiment. I really liked the dark chocolate and burnt orange together so I used the burnt orange as my background layer as well. I popped the sentiment up on some craft foam and stamped out a few leaves from the same Thanks and Leaves stamp set using Fall colored Distress Oxide inks. I stamped several leaves so I would have some for my 2nd card too. I attached my card front onto a top folding card base and moved on to card #2.

I could’ve made 50 backgrounds using this Abstract Waves stencil, it’s just so fun!! I pretty much did the exact same thing for this card, except this time I reversed the colors. First I thought about turning this into a shaker card, so I cut a rectangle out of the background using the same Wonky Rectangle die, but to my dismay I cut it crooked!! So a shaker was out. I was so bummed because I thought I had just ruined this gorgeous background, but then I decided I was going to make it work. What did I have to lose? I created my sentiment the same way I did on the first card only this time I added a border around it to cover up my crooked opening. And it really made the sentiment pop. Added bonus!!

A couple week’s ago, I made a Happy Fall card and I really liked the colors that I used so I decided to add a layer of light blue to this card. The patterned paper was from a previous card kit and it was just the right color of blue so I used it for my background layer too. I didn’t pop the sentiment up on craft foam for this one because you would’ve been able to see my crooked opening behind it. I added a few of the left over leaves around my sentiment and once again added my card front to a top folding card base. This time I used Neenah Desert Storm as my card base. Since I still had several leaves left over, I added a couple inside both cards. Not only are the sentiments great on the Thanks and Leaves stamp set, but the leaves are gorgeous too!!

And just because it’s so beautiful, here’s a close up of this gorgeous pattern.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Fifteen Minute Card Ideas

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Thinking of You

Veteran’s Day is on November 11th, which is the anniversary of the end of World War 1. It honors veterans and the sacrifices that were made during past wars. We will remember them and thank them for their service. Without their heroic efforts the world would be a very different place.

We are showcasing Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Since I didn’t have any Thinking of You or Get Well cards, I decided to turn this challenge into an even bigger challenge. I set out to make a few cards that I could make in about 15 minutes, give or take a minute or two. I used the Healing Hugs stamp set by Simon Says Stamp for my first 2 cards.

These first 2 aren’t “Thinking of You” cards, but when I think of T.O.Y. cards, I also think of “Get Well” in the same category. And since I didn’t have any of either, I made 3 Get Well’s and 3 Thinking of You’s.

This first card was SUPER easy. I started out with the Marble Background stamp by MFT on Fog card stock and Fog ink to create my background. Then I used images from the Healing Hugs set and white heat embossed them. I found a piece of gorgeous teal card stock in my scraps bin and white heat embossed the secondary sentiment. Tonic’s Aquatic Mist Glitter Drops matched perfectly so I added a few random drops here and there. I found 2 pink hearts floating around my craft room and I liked the pink with the teal and gray so I added those too. I added my card front to a top folding A2 card base using Neenah Solar White 110 lb. card stock. Voila!! Card #1 is complete.

For my 2nd card, I started out with a beautiful patterned paper from Sunny Studio called Heroic Halftones (fitting for this challenge) and centered the same floral ring that I used on the first card. I heat embossed it using white embossing powder and did the same with the sentiment. Using the Nested Circles die by SSS, I cut out my design using the 2nd largest circle. Using the largest circle, I cut out a piece of Sunshine card stock. I used the same largest circle die to create my card base by doing some partial die cutting.

I took some Chipped Sapphire distress ink and ink blended around the edge of the smaller circle. The secondary sentiment is also from the Healing Hugs stamp set. I stamped it on the same Sunshine card stock by SSS. I used the smallest Sentiment Labels die from SSS to cut it out and attach it across the front of my card front. I added some Steel Blue Nuvo Jewel Drops by Tonic as an embellishment and attached it to my circular card base. Card # 2 complete.

This is the card I made specifically for this challenge. To honor those that have served and are currently serving our country.

This stamp set called Wildflowers by SSS is my favorite stamp for creating a super fast, need it in a pinch kind of card. Just add some distress ink and a sentiment and you’re done! This sentiment is from Sketched Flowers, but I made 2 more of these cards and I also used the Thinking of You stamp from the Say It All Friend stamp set, which is a little bit larger so I added clear embossing powder to that one. You can see it in my video, if you’d like.

Three cards that took about 15 minutes each to make. I was on such a roll that I made 6 cards for this challenge!! Three Get Well cards and three Thinking of You. I would say I had a productive day!!

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
