Santa Bear has some darling images that are all about telling Santa what you want for Christmas.  My images were Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating Santa Bear Elle-ments.  They were layered over the new Snow Scene Elle-ments and the NEW Holiday Paper Collection Paper Pad!  Where the snow die cuts out, I added in some Avery Elle Glitter.  To finish this off, I added a sentiment strip that was white heat embossed with the Pure White Fine Embossing Powder

Reverse Confetti / You're the Best

Hello!  I'm here sharing a card using one of my favorite tried and true techniques---emboss resist.  The hardest cards for me to tackle are masculine and sympathy.  This technique could be used for both depending on the sentiment strip you use!

You're the Best 

Using a panel of Premier Polar White Cardstock, I stamped the leaf sprig from Bold Blooms with Versamark Ink all over the panel and clear heat embossed.  I then ink blended Forest Moss, Crushed Olive, and Pine Needles Distress Ink over the panel of embossed leaves.  Once done, I wiped the panel down with a dry paper towel to buff off the embossed leaves.  

You're the Best2

The panel was trimmed to make clean edges.  To keep this simple (whether this is for a sympathy card or masculine), a simple sentiment (from Sentimental Sayings) was white heat embossed onto a vellum strip and wrapped around the panel.

Avery Elle / CelebRAYtion

Hello!  I am here today with a card using the CelebRAYtion set from Avery Elle.  This stamp set can be used to create a card for anyone!


I started out by Copic coloring my smiling shark friend and adding in darker dots for dimension.  I die cut my shark and rock/seaweed elements with the coordinating CelebRAYtion Elle-ments.  I assembled my card using the wave from Summer Scene Elle-ments that was distressed with a bit of Distress Ink splatter.  The wave was adhered to a white notecard that was ink blended with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.  I added my shark and other elements with foam adhesive along with a white heat embossed sentiment using the Simple Sentiments Elle-ments.

SugarPea Designs / Have a Lovely Day

I am here with a card using the gorgeous florals from Meadow Motifs.  Definitely a beautiful set that can be used for any type of card--this one is just to send to a friend!  Happy mail will make anyone's day!

Have a lovely day

I stamped the florals in black Copic friendly ink and blended in shades of orange and green Copics.  They were die cut using the Meadow Motifs SugarCuts dies.  For my background, I ink blended Tumbled Glass Distress Ink over the Wave Stencil very lightly.  Layered over the background, was circle frames using the Zig Zag Stiched Circles SugarCuts made out of white cardstock.  The florals were added over the top with foam adhesive.  A simple white heat embossed sentiment (from Everyday Sentiments) on black cardstock was added as well.  A few sparkling clear sequins for some sparkle finish the card!

Have a lovely day2

Miss Ink Stamps / New stencil release!

Graduated Lines Stencil

  It's still release week and I am sharing more new stencils from Miss Ink Stamps!  

Sometimes a birthday card can be simple and it's just fine.  That's where my mind was going with this one using the new Graduated Lines Stencil.  I LOVE stripes and these soft colors.  Using Cracked Pistachio, Abandoned Coral, and Fossilized Amber Distress Inks, I lightly inked blended these across the stencil.  Keeping that simple theme, I added 4 sentiment strips to the lower right that were stamped with one of my favorite sets, Everyday Sentiments.  I finished the card with a sprinkling of coordinating gems.

Reverse Confetti / August Blog Hop

Stitched Rainbow Rays 

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti August Blog Hop!
Make sure to check out the Reverse Confetti blog for all the details of this hop and for a full list of inspiration and information.

This month's blog hop features ABC projects!  Anything But a Card (ABC)

Stitching is so popular on papercrafts lately, so I thought I would incorporate some stitching onto one of my FAVORITE stitched dies from Reverse Confetti......Stitched Rays Cover Panel Confetti Cut.  I started with a white panel die cut with the Stitched Rays Cover Panel and using rainbow colors of thread, I stitched rainbow rays!!  For my sentiment, I used the Hello Square Confetti Cuts die cut from Midnight Cardstock, trimmed out just the 'hello', and added it over my stitched panel with liquid glue.

To finish, I popped my panel into a frame that was painted with acrylic paint.  This is a perfect addition to my craft room!!!

Miss Ink Stamps / New stencil release!

Waves Stencil
Hello!  It's stencil release week from Miss Ink Stamps!  We are releasing FOUR new stencils.......Graduated Lines, Scallop, Chevron, and Wave.

I was on total vacation mode when I made this one!  Give me a beach and warm temps year round!  

Using the Wave Stencil, I ink blended Salty Ocean (fitting, right? ☺) onto a white panel.  I hand trimmed a beach and added "sand" with my Copics and white pigment pen.  Using a standard circle die, I added a sun that peeks out from behind my palm tree from Unstoppable.  My scene was spotlighted by adding in a raised panel that was die cut using a standard circle die.
