Nuts About You!


Happy Friday!

I'm so excited to share some things I created with this new Neat & Tangled set that I am "going nuts" over called My Favorite Nut! It's available at Drive By Crafts, but going fast!

 

 These sweet images work perfectly not only for Valentine's Day cards, but also gift tags and small "love notes". I'll be making several of these little note cards to give to my team at work :)

 

 I know this will be a well-loved set in my collection and already have plans to make up projects for Anniversary, I'm Here For You, Friendship, Just a Note and, of course, Valentine's Day!




While you're browsing around the shop, be sure sure to check out the Clearance sale going on.  Quantities are limited, so you'll want to grab some great deals while you can!

Think Happy Thoughts

Hello everyone! 
It's Ceal, here to share with you a card that uses some Newton's Nook goodies and they are on sale! If you haven't yet, you should check out the Clearance section, there are some great sets like the one I used on my card. 



To make this card I started with an A2 white base, a piece of Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper, and a piece of watercolor paper for the background wash. I stamped the floral wreath from the Happy Little Thoughts set, colored it using Copic markers and die cut it with the Happy Little Thoughts dies that coordinate with the stamp set. Next I  added the floral wreath to the panel with the watercolor wash and then stamped the greeting inside the wreath. To finish the card I added the patterned paper to the card front and popped up the focal panel using foam tape.

From All Of Us

Hi, Lisa here today sharing a way to use the boy and girl heads in the Neat & Tangled stamp set Say Yes To Donuts to make a fun border on this birthday card.  I'm also using My Favorite Things' Stitched Basic Edges 2 Die-namics and My Mind's Eye Hello Gorgeous 6 x 6 paper pad

First I adhered the beautiful pattern paper from My Mind's Eye Hello Gorgeous collection to my card front.  Then I cut my curve from my 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" white cardstock panel using Stitched Border Edges 2 Die-namics from My Favorite Things.  

Next, I lined up the curved panel on my clear block and arranged my sentiment from Neat & Tangled's Say Yes To Donuts just below the edge.  Then stamped it on the pattern paper and adhered to my card front. 
Lastly, I stamped the children by stamping the girl and boy heads and shoulder from Neat & Tangled's Say Yes To Donuts, then used a pen to add the opposite shoulder and masked the heads as I went. Then colored them all in and added sequins to finish.

Beautiful Day

 Happy Friday!  I'm looking forward to the weekend after a couple very busy weeks at work.  Let's face it - I always look forward to the weekends because I have more time to play in my craft room!

Today I'm sharing a card made with a gorgeous stamp set from Altenew:  Beautiful Day.  The multi-step stamping - starting with a very light color ink to dark and then outlining in black ink -  gives the images so much dimension.  It's really fun to see it all come to life and easy to stamp!

Feel Better


Hello everyone, 
It's Ceal here to share the details of this card made with a couple of sets from Concord & 9th.
It's that time of year, when we may need some extra get well cards to send out, especially with all the weather changes, 70 one day and 30 the next. So I created this one to have on hand for that reason.

I started with a white card base A2 size and a panel of watercolor paper. I stamped the cup and saucer using the Let's Chat set and then masked it off and stamped the floral image from the Hello Lovely set. I stamped them both in archival ink and used Zig Cleancolor pens to watercolor them.

Enjoy The Ride

Hi, Lisa here today sharing this fun CAS card I made combining a couple stamp sets.  
 First, I cut a white piece of cardstock the same size as my card base, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
Next, I cut just about an inch from the bottom using the straight edge die from My Favorite Things Stitched Basic Edges 2 Die-namics.  Then I adhered the two panels onto the card base. (Love these dies with stitching on both sides of the cut).
 Next I stamped this adorable car and little hearts from a Christmas stamp set (love stretching my stamps) Lawn Fawn Home For The Holidays.  I masked off a triangle on the right side lining up with the headlight on the front of the car then sponged using the Ranger Mini Ink Blending tool and Squeezed lemonade Distress Ink from Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Mini Kit #10



Lastly, I stamped my sentiment in the middle of my sponged triangle using Altenew Cities America 2.  I just squealed when I was brainstorming as I was looking at my stamp sets and noticed this sentiment and how it would work perfectly with Lawn Fawn's cute as a bug car.  Then I just colored up my car with Copics.  In case you are interested in the colors of Copics I used here they are: R20, R22, R24, R29, YR02, YR04, YR07, BG0000, BG000, BG01, W1, W3, W5, YR23, Y17, Y21, C00, C0, C1, N10, N7, N4
