SC483 Love


Hello Everyone!!  Today I've played along with the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge!  It has been a looooooong time since I've joined in this challenge, so it was such fun to actually play along this week.  :)

I've used a base of Vintage Pink Bazzill and layered with white (pierced), pink bazzill and some pretty Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics 1925 DP.  Across this I've added a piece of Vintage Pink, punched with Deco Fan Punch and topped with white lace and pink ribbon.  The panel is created of pink bazzill topped with Maja Designs DP.  For the feature panel, I've stamped this gorgeous image from Power Poppy called Springtime Love in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (G20, G21, G24, G28, YG11, YG13, YG17, E23, RV000, RV32, RV34, B0000, B00, B01, B04) and matted it with Vintage Pink Bazzill.  The sentiment is also from Springtime Love, has been stamped in Memento Angel Pink and cut with Large Circle Nestabilities.  I've finished by adding a bow to the ribbon.

Stamps - Springtime Love (PowerPoppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Vintage Pink, Romance Bazzill, White, Maja Designs 1925 DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Angel Pink

Happy 40th!


Hello Everyone!!  Today I have a different sort of card to show and I've made it for my brother who turns 40 this week!  :)  I've seen a few of this box cards around (and they fold FLAT to fit into a standard size envelope, how cool is that!) and thought I'd have a go making one since it's a biggish occasion! 

I actually found this download file at the Silhouette Store called Box Card: Birthday 30, 40, 50 (yes, it has all three ages as part of the download file! There are also other downloads for other ages.) by Lori Whitlock.  If you don't have a Silhouette, then you can follow the Pop Up Box Card Tutorial by the amazing Dina Kowal at Splitcoaststampers!


I simply cut out all the pieces in a variety of colours and used a piece of masculine type heavy DP from my stash and glued it all together.  It was fun and something a bit different for me and I hope he likes it, even if I am reminding him that's he's now hit the big 4-0!  LOL!!  I did write a little birthday wish for him on the front panel, just forgot to photograph it *before* I wrote it, so I've just blurred it, the cardstock was plain white!  ;)

Stamps - NONE (GASP!)
Paper - Brown, White, Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, DP
Ink - NONE
Accessories - Silhouette Store Download File, Silhouette, Glue

Gift Card Thank You!


Hello Everyone!!  Today's project is one that is a little different for me - I've used a Silhouette File from the Silhouette Online Store to cut this cut Present Gift Card Holder and then stamped it with Quilted Circles Background Stamp and Burlap Background Stamp and created a thank you tag with Congrats Vintage Labels Three and Seven.




I had to make a thank you for a male friend (and we all know how difficult those MAN CARDS are!) and found this fun Present Gift Card file in the Silhouette Online Store and thought it would be perfect.  :)  I've cut the present out with blue card and the ribbon/bow accents in yellow.  I've stamped the blue present with Quilted Circles Background (in Memento Rich Cocoa) and then coloured parts of it in yellow and blue Copic.  Then I stamped the ribbon/bow with Burlap Background (in Memento Desert Sand).  The sentiment is from Congrats Vintage Labels Three and Seven, stamped in Rich Cocoa and made into a notched tag.  Super quick and easy!!  :)

The inside looks like this.....

We did add a little white panel opposite the gift card where my son wrote his message, thanking our friend for helping him get to and from cricket games during the season.  :)

Stamps - Burlap Background, Stitched Circles Background, Congrats Vintage Labels Three and Seven (JustRite)

Garden Tools!


Hello Everyone!!  It's time for another fun Spring inspired set by JustRite Papercraft!!  Today we've left the birdhouses of yesterday and got digging in the garden with seeds, tools and a watering can!  This super cute set is simply called Garden Tools!


And YES....there is a matching SVG file!

Did you see the Burlap Background Stamp that was showcased on Wednesday??  Well, I thought it would be *perfect* with the Garden Tools stamps!  :)

I've used a base of So Saffron and layered with Baked Brown Sugar (with two corners chomped with the corner rounder) and added a little 'stitching' with my Copic Multiliner.  Next I've added a piece of Summer Breeze DP and cut the side with Spellbinders A2 Scallop Borders One.  I've also added a strip of Baked Brown Sugar down one side.  I've stamped the Burlap Background in Memento Desert Sand onto Very Vanilla and then very carefully cut out the little pieces to create the frayed edge!  I've cut the shapes with SVG Garden Tools and then stamped the images from Garden Tools with Memento Tuxedo Black.  I've coloured the ladybird, watering can, flowers and leaf with Copics.....RV000, RV52, RV55, N3, N5, N7, Y11, Y15, Y17, V22, V25, YG13, YG17.  I've stamped the sentiment in black and cut out with JustRite Vintage Sentiment Tag Die and attached as shown.  The watering can and ladybird have been popped up on foam tape.

Applique Flowers from the Heart...


Hello Everyone!!  Welcome to Day One of the JustRite Papercraft April Release!!  This month it's all about fun and some fabby backgrounds as well!!  Today I've used this super fun and happy set called Appliqué Flowers & Vintage Sentiment Tag Clear Stamps and it also comes with a matching SVG file, SVG Appliqué Flowers & Vintage Sentiment Digital Cut File Download that can be used with your electronic cutting machines!!



I've used a base of Daffodil Delight and layered with white and Summer Breeze DP.  Down one side I've used another piece of Summer Breeze, matted it with Baked Brown Sugar and attached some bright yellow ribbon.  Next I've cut a piece of white with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles and airbrushed some RV52 while it was still in the die to give a little colour.  I've drawn in some dotted lines with a Copic Multiliner for the edging and added the sentiment from Appliqué Flowers & Vintage Sentiment Tag Clear Stamps.  I've used the SVG file to cut the EXACT cut and then stamped the flower, stem and leaf elements.  I've coloured these with Copics (Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, YG11, YG13, YG17).  I cut and stamped an extra flower and cut out the middle and shaped it a little so it looks like a daffodil cup and glued to the center of the flower.  To finish I've stamped a couple of the buttons and coloured them with copics and attached a bow to the ribbon.

Power Poppy RELEASE HOP!


Hello Everyone!!!  It's HERE!!  It's finally here!!!  Yes, I'm talking about Power Poppy Release Day!!!  The very first release for this brand new company can new be purchased at the Power Poppy Store and I know you'll love them as much as we do!!  :)

It was a hard decision which set to use for today's release hop, but in the end I chose.... Springtime Love.  I love flower images, so I adore this set.  :) 
I've used a base of River Rock cut with Spellbinders 5x7 Detailed Scallops and layered with a pale purple bazzill and Magnolia Grove DP.  Across this I've added more Magnolia Grove DP and layered it on River Rock cut with one of the smaller Detailed Scallops dies and then just cut off the ends to fit.  Around this I've attached some purple ribbon.  I've stamped this gorgeous image from Springtime Love in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card, coloured with Copics and cut out with Spellbinders Labels 28.  I've framed this is pale purple cut with Decorative Labels 28 and popped it up on X-press It Foam Tape.  To finish, I've added lavender pearls to the corners.

Here's a closer look.....

I decided to use the sentiment from Springtime Love inside the card, cut with Large Oval Nestabilities and airbrushed with a little V91 Copic.....
 
Here are the Copics I used.....

So, did you see all of the sneak peeks the team made this week??  Been waiting to see the *entire* sets............here they are!!  The four fabulous new Power Poppy sets in the April Release are....

Good Thinking!!


With on-trend typography designed by Marcella Hawley, Good Thinking: Renewal will end your search for "just the right" rejuvenating words! This all-sentiment set measures 4" by 6" and is loaded with 16 images. Take a deep breath in, exhale out and stamp up some serenity. Now doesn't that just feel better?

I've been playing with my Silhouette Cameo to create this card and combined a couple of files and modified a bit to create a tent card!  I've used the 3D Stand Up Card: Strawberry for the main part of the card, (although I added an extra red layer) and the 3D Poppy for the flower to use instead of the strawberry.....because I thought the poppy would be appropriate!!  ;-)  Once I constructed all this, I stamped the sentiment from Power Poppy's Good Thinking: Renewal set on the inside.  :)

This is the view from the side.....

Today the Bloom Brigade is stamping out some serenity and they'd love to share a bit with you!
