We are showcasing Your Next Stamp 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.

What kid doesn’t love firemen and fire trucks and policemen and K9’s? I thought this stamp set appropriately titled Fire Up The Fun was perfect for a kid’s Birthday card. Your Next Stamp also has an equally adorable stamp set called Freeze for those police fans.

As I was working on this post, I started to feel really crummy. So I will add the colors I used and my video as soon as I can. The way I’m feeling as I type this, I’m afraid I may be in the ER or on my way to San Francisco by the time this posts in the morning. So I’ll just add a couple of pictures for now and pray that I’m wrong and I will be back ASAP to finish adding some details.

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

Anything Goes, Dude

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 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’m adding a super cute male themed card to my stash this week. I’ve had this stamp set called Wheels by Stampendous for a little bit now so I thought this would be a good time to test it out.

To start things off, I colored my monster truck with my Copic markers and fussy cut it. Using Neenah Desert Storm card stock, I created my little hill using the Stitched Square die and Stitched Simply Wavy Borders die both by Lawn Fawn. To add some color and interest, I used Vintage Photo distress ink and Gathered Twigs to ink blend around the edges. They I splattered it using the super cool Distress Splatter Brush by Tim Holtz with Gathered Twigs.

I set my truck aside to create my background. I used the Diamond Pattern cling stamp by Simon Says Stamp and heat embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder.

I used the Dude die by CZ Designs and cut it out using black card stock and Tonic Studio’s Sliver Silk as the top layer. I popped it up on some craft foam. I also popped up my hill and a portion of the monster truck. I glued it all to a top folding A2 sized black card base.

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

Happy Summer!!

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

Travel/Vacation

We are showcasing Lawn Fawn 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 Summer everyone!! Well, it’s still a couple of days from the official start date, but it’s close enough! My boy is out of school, the sun is shining and we just got back from vacation so this was a perfect challenge this week for me.

I chose to create my idea of the perfect vacation. Any where there is the ocean, palm trees and a beautiful sunset, that’s where I’ll be. That is my definition of vacation. I actually created two cards for this challenge. I did another one with a different sky technique which I shared at the end of my video. But for this card, I started out by ink blending Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Candied Apple on Bristol Smooth card stock.

Then I cut the frame out using Lawn Fawn’s Tropical Backdrop die. This is an awesome die! I love that you also get separate palm tree dies to add additional palm trees or to paper piece over the top of the trees attached to the frame.

I cut out my ocean waves using the Stitched Simple Wavy Borders die also by Lawn Fawn. I used two different colors for the waves. Both look amazing with the colors of the sky. I used a sheet of colored card stock that I believe to be Lawn Fawn’s Peacock. I also used SSS Audrey Blue card stock. Then I placed a ton of foam strips and foam squares on the back of my frame to pop it up for dimension.

I cut the sentiment out three times with the left over colored card stock. The sentiment is called Happy Summer Line Border die by Lawn Fawn. Using Elmer’s Craft Bond, I glued them all together and trimmed it down to fit in between the two palm trees on each side. I used a tiny bird die that I had in my stash.

Look at the gorgeous color!! The teal just pops against the blood orange color.

For a final touch, I went over the sentiment with my Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen. I attached my card front to a black card base and I was done! Here’s the other card I created using a different technique to create the sky.

This ALMOST ended up in my trash, but luckily I was able to salvage it. I need to work on my sky colors next time, but I really like the realistic effect that this sky has.

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