Thanks a ton

I have a quick card for this post with a little jungle pun. I was looking for 12x12 papers for building a folio and end up overbuying.. really over buying. I love these Graphic 45 papers and I could not resist them.

I cut out one of the panels from a page, I added some black cardstock in behind as well as some foam tape for dimension then I cut a card base to fit the panel. I found some puny sentiments in a My Favorite Things stamps set and I heat embossed the sentiment in white on black cardstock. 


I am debating on adding gems, I like the layers the design adds.

Supplies: White adn black cardstock, Designer Paper - Graphics 45, My favorite Things - Sweet Safari.

Stay crafty,

Magic of the Season

Good Morning and Merry Monday. I love the vintage look of this patterned paper. I could not choose which one to use for I used four out of the paper pack. I started with a dark green cardstock die cut with a stitched rectangle then cut panels from the designer paper.

I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of coordinating cardstock and added some foam tape in behind. I added some die cut greenery in behind the sentiment then finished with some enamel dots.


Supplies: White and green cardstock, Designer Paper - Simple Stories, Simon Says Stamp Inside Christmas Greeting, Echo Park - enamel dots.

Musical Birthday

A quick card for this evening's post. I picked up this music-themed paper a couple of weeks ago and it is perfect for an upcoming birthday.

I used a simple layout as I think the paper speaks for itself. I cut out the bottom panel and added a layer of black cardstock. I did the same with the second layer but also added a layer of foam tape.

I heat embossed the sentiment in white on black and then popped it up with foam tape. I finished the card with some Nuvo drops.



Supplies: Cream and black cardstock, Designer Paper-Graphic 45, Papertrey Ink- Birthday Bash, Nuvo Drops.

Birthday Wishes

I liked the sketch from earlier today so I did a feminine version of the card as well. 

I used the same steps and I started with a larger frame die and cut out a layer in black cardstock, the die cuts all have an embossing edge so I ran it through my die cut machine again to get the embossing sharper.  I then used the next size of die to cut a panel of patterned paper that fits inside the frame of the larger one.



 
I die-cut the third panel and the circle at the same time and added some foam tape to the panel and tucked the circle inside. I die cut the flower then added some foam tape to pop it up a little. I stamped the sentiment and I finished the card with some gems.

Supplies: White and black cardstock, Designer Paper - Honey Bee, Sizzix - Happy Fall Framelit, Impression Obsession- Abstract Flowers, Clearly Besotted - Mini Messages, gems.

Brown Buck Birthday

It is a perfect day to spend a little time in my craft room. I needed a masculine birthday card so that is what I tackled first. As I was digging through my stash of die cuts for something I ran across a packet of Framelits from Sizzix, the Happy Fall one to be precise.

I liked the way the die cuts were lined up in the packaging and thought that is a great sketch to follow.

I started with a larger frame die and cut out a layer of brown cardstock, the die cuts all have an embossing edge so I ran that through my die cut machine again to get the embossing to deepen.  I then used the next size to die cut a panel of patterned paper that fits inside of the larger one.

 
I then die-cut the third panel and the circle at the same time and added some foam tape to the panel and tucked the circle inside. I die cut the buck head and added some wood grain embossing to it then added some foam tape to pop it up. I stamped the sentiment and I finished the card with some Nuvo drops.

Supplies: White and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Honey Bee, Sizzix - Happy Fall Framelit, American Crafts  - Open Book die-cut, Clearly Besotted - Mini Messages, Nuvo Drops.

It's time for coffee

I love some of the new products that Honey Bee just released. My mini haul arrived the other day and I finally got a little time to put something together using them.

I used the Coffee die-cut both the word and shadow for part of the sentiment. I heat embossed the rest of the sentiment in white on brown. I put that aside and used one of the pages from a new paper pad. This card was made using both sides of one sheet.

I sized the panel so it was just slightly smaller than the card front then sliced a piece from the side and flipped it around. I added a thin slice of brown paper to cover the seam between the two panels.


I added some foam tape to the coffee sentiment and finished with some Freshly brewed sequins.

Supplies: White and brown cardstock, Honeybee - Coffee stamp set and die, Freshly brewed paper pad and sequin mix.

Keep crafty,

Holiday Season

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian visitors. I have a quick post today after taking a week off to visit with my sister.

It's Monday and that means I have a Merry Monday card to share.

I found this lovely Recollections paper on a visit to Michaels and it made for an easy card with a simple layout.


The pattern with the poinsettia's and greenery has a lovely glittery shimmer on the flowers that does not show up in the photos. I added a coordinating striped paper down the left side than added a thin strip of cardstock to break up the panels.

I layered the sentiment with some of the striped paper from the side panel and popped it up with foam tape.

Supplies: White and red cardstock, Designer Paper-Recollenctpons, Penny Black-Joyful wishes.

World Cardmaking Day 2020 - Thank you

Good Morning wild and crazy crafters, I know you pulled out some glitter this week. Too much :)? Alrighty then, how about the excitement for today then.



Ready? you know it is World Cardmaking Day right, a day to celebrate why we are frittering away our hard-earned cash on all those supplies... oh wait is that a different hobby?


Are you planning to get some crafty time in today, I know I will, my sister is visiting and we are going to dig our fingers into some paper and glue and maybe, just maybe - some glitter :).

The card for today's post is a challenge with a crew of crafty individuals - the challenge you ask, follow a sketch and there may be a prize, easy peasy lemon squeezy. This sketch was perfect as I tackled this yesterday, I had a crazy busy week that left me minus even a hint of a crafty spark, I found the sketch easy to follow and it was simple to put something together for the card.



I followed the sketch, and I even used the required measurements and everything, a big win for me because when it comes to crafting I am horrible at following directions or measurements.

Each panel is layered with cardstock and designer paper, I added some silver twine to the base layer and popped the top two panels up with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment and leaves with 4 different gray inks to get an ombre effect. I added a touch of Wink of Stella for a hint of sparkle. I finished my card with some clear gems.


Supplies: White and Gray cardstock, Designer Paper - Stampin' Up! Peony Garden, Stampin' Up! - Sending Sunshine and Thoughtful Banners, twine and gems.

Thank you Crystal for organizing the challenge and providing the sketch.

Happy Crafting,

Autumn & Nature

Hey Crafty Friends, sorry I ditched you for a few days. This week I tell you, way to busy to be considered sane. 

I am posting a card that I made way back at a crafty retreat, I used a simple layout to showcase the pretty autumn designer paper and the wonderful sentiment.

I layered all the panels with dark brown cardstock, the base layer is a nice polka dot patterned. The center panel had some stunning leaves including hints of gold foil. The sentiment panel is layered with multiple cardstock layers. I did not add any additional embellishments as I wanted the gold to draw the eye.



Supplies: White, brown and gold cardstock, Designer Paper-Kaisercraft, Quietfire-Autumn Collection.

Happy Friday!

Good Morning all and welcome to September's edition of Keeping Christmas Blog Hop.


I found a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Christmas paper pad in my stash the other day, is it new? is it old? I really don't know, a sign perhaps I shop through my crafty stash for a while. Anyhoo, the patterns inspired me.

My design is simple, layers with more layers and again a few more layers. Each panel of patterned paper is backed by some brown cardstock. I added some ribbon to the large flag, I stamped the sentiment and layered it with brown cardstock and foam tape.

Happy Halloween

I had so much fun creating this card. I started with an embossed black cardstock layer, then cut a piece of patterned paper, I snipped the bottom off and flipped it over for the bottom layer of the panel.

Trailblaze Challenge Update

I accepted a challenge this summer, in truth, it was a challenge to myself but still.

I signed up for the Trailblaze Challenge for Make a Wish, raising funds for a wonderful cause and getting my step on is a win-win in my eyes.

Anything is possible

How about a little pumpkin spice latte for the card tonight, I love these fall patterns and I had a craving for a latte today that was unfulfilled so I made do with a card.

I am playing along with Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I used two patterns from a 6x6 paper pad for the base layer adding some brown cardstock, I added another thin piece of a pattern along the middle. I had the coffee die cut in a bowl on my desk that worked perfectly for part of the sentiment.

I stamped the coffee stain then heat embossed the sentiment and popped it up with foam tape. I heat embossed the coffee cup in brown on three different scraps of cardstock and patterned paper then paper pieced to altogether, popping up sections and then the whole cup.

Fun Holiday Season

Where did that weekend go? I was not ready for a Monday yet, and yet here we are and I have a holiday card for this Merry Monday.

I may have picked up this little treasure of a paperback on a drive up the Island on Saturday. I have to say I do love Photoplay papers, they just get me all enthused to create something.

I wanted to showcase the papers so I did a pretty simple layout for today's card. Easy layers with a layer of brown cardstock. I added a layer of foam tape to the top panel, sentiment and snowflakes. I finished the card with some gems on top of the snowflakes.

Take a hike

I had this paper pad sitting on the corner of my desk while I was cleaning up and as I flipped through it, I was inspired so this is what I came up with.

I started my card with a large panel of designer paper then layered it with brown paper. I die cut a swirling circle and glued it down. Each of the small panels are cut from a piece of the patterned paper I added a layer of foam tape in behind each of them.

I think I will leave it as is with no additional embellishments and let the little panel tell the story.

Good Afternoon and Merry Monday, I have a quick panel card for you today. As I was unpacking from a weekend of crafty retreat goodness I pulled out a 6 x6 paper pad that at the moment inspired me.

I  have really been loving all the sentiment panels that some of the paper lines have been creating, they allow you to make fabulous cards in minutes.

I cut out a panel of patterned paper and layered it with some black cardstock. I did the same with the sentiment panel and also added a layer of foam tape in behind. I finished with some half pearls.

I have a cute and quick card for all of you coffee lovers out there. I love this patterned paper but I had not used the bolder images sheets yet. As I was sorting through my stamps I found this sentiment and it was perfect to go with the patterned paper.

Congratulations

My creativity was a little stumped when I started this card when I found this basic background paper it kicked me off. I liked the colour of the card more than the pattern for what I was trying to achieve. I added a layer of navy cardstock in behind.

I heat embossed the police card with blue/black ink and clear embossing then added a layer of foam tape in behind.

I die cut the road from navy and white, then added a row of trees in behind. I finished the card with a simple sentiment that is popped up with foam tape.



The card ended up with a wintery snowy look which was not intended but I like how it turned out in the end.

Just Because

I had a vision for this card, as I was building it in my mind I did not expect the final card to be gray but I like how it turned out.

I started with a panel die cut with stitched rectangles, I then die cut the center with a thin frame die cut and cut a frame from silver glitter cardstock. 

I added a script text to the background of all the panels and created a second panel that I used to die cut the flowers and leaves. The flowers and leaves are stamped in dark gray ink

I added gray ink to the edges of all the panels and the flowers. I popped up some of the flowers with foam tape and then added some gems. I heat embossed the sentiment in white on black. I adhered the whole panel to a gray cardstock base.

Bright Smiles

I did not make it to post my card for this past week's Tuesday Morning Sketches, this past weekend seemed to just melt away.

I pulled out a paper pack that I have had for a number of years to see what I could put together without using stamps.

I cut a piece of double-sided patterned paper and cut the bottom of the panel to turn the bottom side around. I used a piece of border stick to break up the two panels. I added some foam tape to two feather stickers to pop them up then added another sticker for the sentiment.

I finished the card with some Nuvo drops.

You are so much more

I attended an online card class last night.. well sort of. When you order a card class from Calgary you should really pay attention to the class start time. In my defence I was not the only one, the rest of the class did not show and when I logged on the instructor was getting ready to pack it in. 

The instructor ended up doing a Facebook live of the class just after but that did not work as expected either with some technical difficulties getting in the way.

I also had some problems with my card kit, it did not seem to travel well so I ended up doing my best with the supplies but in truth, my cards look nothing like the class. I am chalking this one up to it was not meant to be.


I used layers of turquoise and navy cardstock panels and adhered them to my card base. I added some texture to the navy layer with an embossing folder. 

The flower image is watercoloured and finished with a touch of Wink of Stella. The sentiments were pre-cut but I added layers of cardstock in behind the sentiment panel. I popped the You sentiment piece up with foam tape.

Supplies: White, navy and turquoise cardstock, MTF - All About you and Harmonious Hibiscus Background.

Congratulations

It took me forever to come up with an idea for this card, but once inspiration hit I loved how it turned out. The theme for the card is for a promotion.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the chevrons and crown. I cut a layer of black cardstock and a smaller navy one. I put the navy panel thorough my Big shot with a chevron embossing folder.

I created a long strip with black cardstock and slightly lighter navy cardstock. The thought behind this was to use patrol pants as my inspiration, they are blue in colour with a light blue strip down the side. I heat embossed the sentiments in white on black cardstock then added some foam tape in behind.

Even with the sentiment and rank elements, the panel looked to be missing something. I pulled out a stamp set with different grunge stamps and added a stamped image to both ends of the panel. It seemed to pull everything together. I finished the card with some black Nuvo Drops.

Keeping Christmas - August 2020

Good Morning all and welcome to the August edition of Keeping Christmas Blog Hop.

I have seen this technique done a few times and was inspired by one posted for Concord & 9th. I used strips of red, hunter green and silver glitter cardstock. I lined them all up using the grid on my glass mat.

I used the same cardstock to created Christmas flower die cuts. I stamped the sentiment then popped up the panel with some foam tape. I finished by adding some red gems to the flowers.

This card would be so easy to mass-produce.

Merry Monday, I have an easy panel card for today's post. I fell in love with the Carta Bella Farmhouse Christmas papers, so much so that I brought some of the 12x12 and the 6x6 pad.
