Pastel graduation using Right at Home Stamps

His Love

Hello!  I wanted to share a pastel "graduation" card using two of the newly released March stamp sets from Right at Home Stamps.......Bunny Hugs and His Love.  His Love stamp set has wonderful messages and one in particular makes me think of graduation.  With that season upon us, we have several graduations upcoming and this will be perfect for those!  

"Of this be sure:  You do not find the happy life, You make it.----Thomas S. Monson"

I stamped many of the flowers from Bunny Hugs in two different shades of the same color in a spring palette.  I intertwined one of the vine/leaf images to create my own background.  I also used the tiny flower image to "fill in" some of the areas for more color using the darker shade of the ink colors.  I added tiny white dots to the flower centers with a white pigment ink pen.  It's those tiny details that add that punch.  

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink over top of some of the flowers.  I love doing this when you have a lighter stamped panel.  I adhered this panel with foam adhesive to a matching cardstock panel that was diecut with the largest frame from Find the Beauty Die Set.  I purposely kept this simple adding no further embellishments like sequins or enamel dots so I can easily slip this in the mail come graduation time.

CAS(E) this Sketch and Reverse Confetti

CAS(E) this Sketch!

Hello!  I love a good sketch and CAS(E) this Sketch! never fails me!  Maybe it speaks to my simple style or maybe it's all the DT's inspiration!  

For this sketch, I went with some older Reverse Confetti products..........Shine from Within and Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts.  I distressed a panel of white cardstock with shades of Distress Ink and splattered water droplets across the panel and lifted some of the color.  My star dies were cut with some amazing silver glitter paper from DCWV.  The sentiment was white heat embossed onto a banner of vellum.  To finish my edges, I used the Office Edges Confetti Cuts to add some "stitching" to the perimeter.

Tulips and The Ton Stamps

Hello!  I can't wait for Tulip season.  It's one of my favorite parts about SPRING!  I LOVE this amazing, layering Fresh Cut Tulips stamp set from The Ton Stamps.  

I am very lucky to be March's Guest Designer for The Ton and got a chance to use this set.  I found the layers to layer and ink were very easy to line up.  The dimension all the layers give is beautiful!  

I would LOVE for you to check out my post over on The Ton Stamps Blog!

Furry Friends and Avery Elle

More Furry Friends2

I am sharing a card that can be seen over on the Avery Elle blog today using More Furry Friends.
I had so much fun using the Picket Fences Elle-ments to create all the parts to my little "paw-ty" scene!  I started by diecutting the cloud border onto scrap cardstock and using this as a template, I sponged Aquamarine Pigment ink to make my cloud sky!  This is such a fun technique!!  My die cut grass was added in layers for dimension with little flower tuffs scattered.  The sweet dog was Copic colored, die cut, and added with foam adhesive as well as the cute party hat!  To finish the "paw-ty" scene, I added some die cut clouds!

Thank you and Right at Home Stamps

thank you

Hello!  Spring is everywhere around us here in Kansas and I love it!  Warmer temps calling for windows open and breezes!  Nicole with Right at Home Stamps had a new release last week of 3 new products.....two new stamp sets and one die set that has been so popular since the release!

Bunny Hugs is a super cute spring set that has a bunny image, sentiments, and lots of flowers.  I've used just one of the flower images and stamped them in a block with bright spring colors (Altenew inks).  BUT I wanted my main focus to be on the amazing new Script Greetings Die Set.  I die cut "thank you" out of black cardstock several times and created a chipboard sentiment.  I adhered this right over my flowers.  This panel was layered onto a black cardstock panel giving it a small black frame.  My focal panel was adhered to a top folding notecard that had been stamped with the Watercolor Background Stamp.

TBT with Pretty Pink Posh

Hello!  I wanted to share a sneak at my project that you can fine over on the Pretty Pink Posh blog for my Throwback Thursday post this month!

Hello Pineapple!


I am sharing a card using a stamp set from last spring called Pineapple Paradise.  Maybe I'm longing for paradise as Spring Break is now upon us starting this weekend and we've had cold, winter, snowy days this week!

My pineapple was stamped with several layers of pigment inks using my Misti Stamping Tool.  I also added some browns and darker greens to the base pineapple stamp itself.  Using the Pineapple Paradise SugarCut, the pineapple base was first stamped, then the image diecut, then the top of the pineapple stamped on the diecut.  This gives a much better alignment!  My pineapple was layered onto a Zig Zag Stitched Circle with foam adhesive. 

To a trimmed piece of white cardstock, I repeatedly stamped the "Hello" at an angle in black ink.  This panel was adhered to a top folding notecard with a strip of black/white polka dot paper from Life is a Carnival paper pad.  As finishing touches, I added a black hemp twine bow to the pineapple and some some sparkling clear sequins.

Punny Pantry and Avery Elle

Punny Pantry
I am sharing a card that can be seen over on the Avery Elle blog today using Punny Pantry.
Punny Pantry is such a cute set with matching dies!  I stamped, colored, and die cut the cute Radish from the set.  I added it to 2 layers of cardstock that was die cut with the Wonky Stitches Dies.  I arranged them at angles and adhered to a notecard that was layered with pattern paper from The Neutral Collection.  As finishing touches, I added black enamel dots and Cherry Hemp Twine.
