Fashionably Late

Happy Saturday!

I hope you had a great week!
I've been busy doing some deep cleaning of the house but I take a break every once in a while to stop and make a card!

This is a quick birthday card that I made because my stash is running low.

I used Balloon Bear from Stampendous and Fashionably Late sentiment from Verses Stamps.

This was a quick and easy card design that I know the recipient will love...and it might even make up for being late!

I hope you have a great rest of the weekend and that you find some time to stamp!

Thanks for stopping by!

Building More Snowmen

I hope you've been enjoying all the fun Snowman cards that the Stampendous team has been sharing this week!

Since it's Thursday, we are combining our "Build a Snowman" week with our fabulous Dreamweaver Stencils.  I used the Snowflake Stencil to create the sparkly background.

To create the background I embossed the Snowflake Stencil  with Regular Embossing Paste. Then I covered the wet paste with Vintage Royal Blue Embossing Powder and heat embossed it until it melted and the paste dried.

My adorable snowmen were colored with Copic Markers and I added the snow elements with Spoonfull of Snow Embossing Powder and Elements.

I love hangin' with you!

Hello High Hopes Fans!

I have another older stamp image to share with you today.

This is Toucan Twosome!
The sentiment is Hangin with You.

I went with a bright, tropical palette for this card.
The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Design Inc Flower Box 6 x 6 paper pad.

I colored the image with Copic Markers.
I used the "out of the box" technique, which is where you cut a shape (in this case on oval) that is smaller than the image and leave some of the image like the branch and leaves "outside" the shape.

I hope you enjoyed today's card!

Jam Packed Corner Flip Card

I've been busy playing with the August Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month from The Rubber Cafe'.

This month's kit is called Farm Fresh and it is full of bright, fun, papers, glitter, and great embellishments.

I saw this fun fold card design on Pinterest and wanted to give it a try for today's card.

I'm going to call this design a Corner Flip Card.
This is the front of the card.

This is the inside of the card.

To create this Corner Flip Card start with a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of green cardstock.  Score in half at the 4 1/4" mark using your Scor-Buddy.

Place the panel at 3" on your cutter and start the blade at 2 1/2".
Cut up to 4 7/8"

Flip the cardstock around and cut from 5/8" down to 3" mark.

Your card base will look like this at this point in the process.

Slowly push the lower corner forward and carefully flip the corner.

It will look like this when done.

Decorate the inside with paper from the kit.

Stamp the girl image on a square white panel of cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and color with markers.
Back the panel with a slightly larger panel of red cardstock and adhere to the flipped corner.

Add patterned paper to the bottom of the card.

Stamp and color the flower trio image.
Cut the image out and adhere to the corner of the card.

Tie some of the red ribbon from the kit around the card.

Add the pearl embellishments from the kit to the center of the flowers.

Stamp the sentiment on a a panel cut from the beige cardstock from the kit with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhere to the card.
Stamp jelly jar on a white scrap with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and color with markers.
Cut it out and attach to card with a 3D Foam Square.

Then you can complete the inside as you wish.

I hope you enjoyed today's Creative Cafe' Kit card!
