Peeps Filled Marshmallow Hugs

Peeps Filled Marshmallow Hugs

Easy, Easy, Easy card to make.

I picked some glitter paper from a pad I had in three different colors and die cut one big peep and two small peeps.  I also die cut a circle and a rectangle from the gingham paper.  I then took the Lawn Fawn puffy cloud border die and die cut the rectangle on an angle.  I stamped my sentiment and adhered all of them pieces to the card.  To finish I add glittery enamel dots to the tails and around the card.

Here is a closer look at the card.

Hope Your Birthday Is Loads Of Fun!

I stamped the images from the Lawn Fawn “Loads of Fun” stamp set on a piece of white card stock and colored the images with Copic markers.  I die cut the polka dot paper with the largest stitched rectangle and a white piece of card stock with the third largest rectangle.  I inked the edges of the white card stock with tumble glass distress ink and an ink blending tool.  I stamped my sentiment in the upper left corner and arranged the images on the inked piece.  I adhered them with tape runner and foam tape for dimension. Then I adhered it to the polka dot paper with foam tape and to the card base with tape runner.

To finish the card I added clear droplets to the bubbles, buttons and scattered around.

Smile! (Featuring Simon Says Stamp)

Hello!

I am back with a new card to share with you today.

This card was made with the new Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers stamp set.  Simon Says Stamp was very kind and sent this stamp set.  It is a beautifully whimsy stamp set that I can see using for many years.

Lets get started.

I stared this card by stamping a bunch of the flowers random on the water-color card stock with VersaMark ink and adding the white embossing powder then melted it with a heat gun.  I water colored the flowers with inexpensive water colors.  I was not being careful to stay in the lines.

On some white card stock I stamped the stem, leaves and flower head using the Misti tool.  Took it to my Brother Scan and Cut and cut it out. I traced around the flower on black card stock and cut it out, this will be the shadow behind the flower.  I die cut the Smile from white and black card stock.  I also die cut the water-color piece with a postage stamp edge rectangle die.  Finally I adhered everything together and added it to a black card base cut to a standard A2 card size.

For a Purrfect Student using Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember goodies!

Hello everyone!

I hope that you holiday weekend in the USA was terrific!  I enjoyed mine very much.  Spent the weekend on the boat with good friends and had a blast.   I am very sorry to see the summer end though.  We had a very slow start to the summer but about July the summer kicked in and as of today is still going strong.

I have a really cute kitty card for you today using the Simon Says Stamp #STAMPtember Back To School release stamp set.

 

Simon Says Stamp Stamptember release

 

I started this card by finding some school related paper for my layering piece.  I found the ruler paper which was purrfect for what I had in mind.  I then die cut the two tags in the light blue and red. I stamped the kitty and ruler onto some white card stock on colored them with my Copic markers.  I don’t have the dies to this set so I had to fussy cut them out but they were pretty easy images so I had to problem.  I then stamp my sentiment and added the images with foam squares.  I also added foam squares under the blue tag for some dimension.  Before I adhered the tags I added the red and white twine to the two tags and added some white dots on the cheeks of the kitty.  I adhered them to the layer paper and then to the red card base. Finally I added some sequins scatter around the card.

I just love how this card turned out.

Here is a closer look at the card.
