Magical

Hi Everyone!
 It's Ceal here today to share a card I made with you using a set by Waffle Flower Crafts. I love unicorns and when I saw this Stitched Unicorn set I had to have it, I tell you though it was a toss up with that cute cactus set they have. 
Don't let a layering set like his scare you away, it really is simple to use especially with the Misti. 

To make my card, I started with a white top folding card base and stamped the first image from the Stitched Unicorn set in a light teal and then added some darker teal and a touch of purple with a sponge dauber and then over stamped it to get the ombre' effect. Next I used a light peach for the head. I over stamped this as well to get a good crisp image. I love that they have grouped the images together that layer together so there is no mix up.
To finish the card I randomly stamped little stars in the background and added a frame using the Scalloped Pierced Rectangle dies by Avery Elle

HOWDY - Thinking Of You!

Lisa here today, sharing a fun little note. 
 I stamped my little cacti in their pots across the bottom of my A2 card front using Waffle Flower Crafts Stitched Cacti Stamp Set.  I used the tip recommended by Waffle Flower Crafts of using the clear stamp sheet that the stamps come on to line up my image in my MISTI for placement of the images. Then I added the big sentiment from the set and another one above from My Favorite Things - BB Polar Bear Pals Stamp Set.  I finished off with my strip of kraft at the top using My Favorite Things - Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 Die-namics

Ahoy, Matey!


 Johnny Depp's character, Captain Jack Sparrow, of the Pirates of the Carribean series sure has changed the way we look at pirates...who every thought they'd be kinda cute and endearing?!  Ok, well, maybe not, but THIS little guy certainly is!

 

 For my card, I started with Neat & Tangled Hexastar stencil sponging some Distressed Ink on the base and a little on the edge of the tag.  I used Neat & Tangled Yo Ho Ho set and dies and chose this adorable pirate to color. 


 Stop by the Drive by Crafts shop and check out the products used in my card...plus see all the newest goodies that have arrived!

Glamper Camper

Hi there!
It's Ceal, here to share a card with you today using some Avery Elle and Lawn Fawn products.

I just love glamper campers they are so cute! I think it would be awesome to have a craft room set up in one and travel, of course we would have to pull another just to camp in right!

To make this card I started with a white top folding card base. I found this cloud patterned paper in my stash and it made the perfect backdrop for the little camper. I stamped the camper on a scrap piece of paper and then several times on the plaid paper by Lawn Fawn so I could use it to paper piece the camper. I also love to paper piece and I don't do enough of it. After I got it all pieced together I cut it out and added the "grass" on my panel,  then I stamped the camper and the cactus on top so I could add them the pieced images to it. 
To finish the card I added the greeting across the bottom.

Pig Joy!

Hello, Lisa here today sharing a fun CAS (Clean and Simple) B-day card. 
I adore this piggy set from My Favorite Things, Sow Much Cuteness 
and love this one piggy in paticular. 
Doesn't he look so happy?  I wanted to make him look like he was jumping up in the air.  So I first stamp five pigs onto post-it notes and fussy cut them out to make masks.  Then I stamped from the top to the bottom masking after each stamp.  Then I stamped my last pig on white cardstock, die-cut him using My Favorite Things Sow Much Cuteness Die-namics, then colored with Copics E000, E00, E11.  I finished off with a strip of black cardstock that I heat embossed my sentiment on and a tad bit of American Crafts Shimelle Little By Little Washi tape

Happy Mother's Day

 Happy Mother's Day!  
Big hugs to all moms, grandmas and like-a-moms out there today!  In my life, I was blessed to have all three of those women who showed me how to be strong, resilient, kind and loving.  I can only hope I'm that kind of example to my daughter :)



 Today my card features Neat & Tangled Better Together stamp set and Big Hugs die.  I added a few luscious layers of pattern paper using Elle's Studio Little Moments (love the entire line of Elle's Studio papers!) and Lawn Fawn Let's Polka in the Meadow (ok, I love all of  Lawn Fawn's petite pattern paper, too!!)



 Hope you can hug your or someone else's mom today!
