Beautiful Inside & Out

Back to my norm with a late night card share, I made this one for a friend with a birthday coming up and also for the Curtain Call challenge and then realized that the challenge is not just florals it's tulips, oh well I am entering it anyways.
To make this card I started with a white top folding card base and some speciality Floral Fill-In paper from Concord & 9th. The paper has coordinating Floral Fill-In stencils that go along with it. All you do is lay the stencil over the space where the flower should be and sponge away. To finish my card I added the Beautiful die and the greeting from the Beautiful You Bundle

I am also entering it in CAS on Sundays challenge to use a stencil.

Curtain Call

Apr 22, 2017


I am up on the Concord & 9th blog with my second post as an April guest designer. I am loving these products especially the Triangle Turnabout stamp (that is now back in stock!) that I used as a background on the card below. I started with a side folding white card base. On this card I rotated the stamp 3 times instead of 4. The first one I used versa mark ink and embossed it with Brutus Monroe Gilded embossing powder, the second turn I stamped it in Altenew Frosty Pink and the third was stamped with Altenew Grapevine. I used the Hugs from the Cuddles & Hugs Dies and cut it out of gold glimmer paper and Blushing Bride card stock. I used a stitched die by Mama Elephant to cut down the background panel.

Because I had leftovers from the hugs die, I was able to create the card below in like record time. I used a white top folding card base and the other pieces of the "hugs" from the card above. I added some embossed hearts in gold and a greeting form the Cuddles & Hugs stamp set. 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!

My Sweet Petunia & Sugar Pea Designs Collaboration Bloghop

My Sweet Petunia is teaming up again, this time with Wendy and her team at SugarPea Designs. You should have come here via Vera's blog and she is so talented! 

They have some super cute sets at SugarPea designs, for my card I chose Chunky Monkey because the monkeys are the cutest.  I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel. I sat the image in Memento ink and the masked it so I could do the background.  I used the new distress oxide inks for my background and added some water droplets to give it texture. Next I removed the masks and colored the image with Copic markers. 

Using the MISTI I was able to stamp the greeting on the card I had almost completed.  Next I cut it out using the Sunshine layers die by WPlus9. To make sure it was straight i used the Creative Corners.

There are giveaways associated with this hop, so be sure to leave a comment on all the participants in order for a chance to win.
 I have a full list below in case you get lost along the way.

Guest Designing for Concord & 9th

Happy Tuesday!!

 I have some super happy news to share with you. I was asked by Angie of Concord & 9th to be a guest designer for April. I am a huge fan of Concord & 9th and it is such an honor to be asked to guest design for them, I really screamed out loud when I read the message. 
The April Release is amazing, matter of fact it is so amazing they sold out of  one of the stamps (Triangle Turnabout) in less than 24 hours! Click HERE to see why.
I will be sharing projects all month long using these products so make sure you keep checking back.

Two of the stamps in this release were designed for use with the MISTI. Triangle Turnabout (which has sold out) and Many Mandalas. 

On my first card I used a stencil to create my background, the Many Mandalas Stamp set along with the Many Mandala Dies, and the Select-A-Size Edge dies which are so versatile.

My second card uses the Hello Lovely set (one of my faves),the Stripe Builder set and the new Select -A-Size Edge dies, these are amazing so many different ways to use them.

It's time for a new challenge at AAA Cards, our sponsor is Stamplorations with a $10 gift certificate to their store 

I have been out of the country and made this card before I left and ran out of time to get it posted. So I am sharing a tad late.
To make this CAS card I used a top folding white card base and a diagonal stripe stamp from Stampin Up. I stamped the strip in Tempting Turquoise for the strip on the side. For the mail panel I used the Best Mom set from Altenew and colored it with Copic markers.  I used a stencil and Tempting Turquoise to make a subtle background. The greeting is from a Sweet 'n Sassy set.
