W&W June Release - Happy Birthday


Hello! It's the second day of Winnie & Walter June previews, and today I'm sharing a card I created using this ridiculously cute balloon die! :) 

To create my card, I started by first creating a coral card base and cutting off 3/4" from one edge.  I then die cut the balloon from white cardstock using the largest balloon die from the Big Balloon Cutaways.  Next, I die cut a smaller piece of silver cardstock to create my balloon topper and the balloon bow.  Once they were die cut, they were adhered to the balloon.



The happy birthday from Happy Birthday to You was then stamped in black ink onto the balloon, and the smaller sentiment from Sentimental: Birthday was stamped in coral ink.  To finish up, the balloon was adhered to the card front using foam tape, then enamel dots were added for interest.

W&W June Release: Happy Birthday Wishes



Hello! It's the first day of previews for the new Winnie & Walter release, and today my card is showcasing the new In Bloom: Carolina's Florals with Angelica Suarez & Mini Scenery: Spotty stamp sets.

To create my card, I started by first creating a white card base, then trimming off 3/4" from one edge.  I then stamped the card front with the Mini Scenery: Spotty stamp set in black ink.  Next, I die cut a circle from light gray striped paper, then stamped it with two of the sentiments from In Bloom: Carolina's Florals with Angelica Suarez using black ink.



I then stamped a bunch of floral images from In Bloom: Carolina's Florals with Angelica Suarez using black, teal, blue, gray and yellow ink, then cut them out using the coordinating In Bloom: Carolina's Florals with Angelica Suarez Cutaways.  Once all the images were die cut, they were arranged and adhered to the circle die cut using foam tape and liquid adhesive.  To finish up, the die cut circle was adhered to the card base using foam tape, then I embellished with yellow enamel dots.

Prickley Pear Blog Hop - Bigger Than Your Fear


Hello! CardMaker Magazine has teamed up today with Prickley Pear for a blog hop to showcase some of their adorable products. :) Hopefully you've reached my blog by way of Lisa McGushion's blog, but if you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please click HERE.

To create my card, I first started by cutting a piece of watercolor paper to 4 x 5.25", and stamping it with the Let Your Faith Be Bigger stamp set in Versafine black ink.  I then stamped the remainder of the panel with the Petunia stamp set in Versafine black ink.  Once the images were stamped, I then heat set them using clear embossing powder.


The images were then colored with watercolor paints, and zapped with the heat gun to reduce dry time.  Once the panel was dry, a coral ribbon was adhered to the front, and the panel was then adhered to a light orange card base using foam tape.  To finish up, I embellished with yellow enamel dots.

Want to be entered for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate? Head on over to the Prickley Pear blog for full details... :) Thanks for stopping by today, next up on the hop is Michelle Pearson's blog. (To see the full list of today's participants, please click HERE.)

RC Blog Hop - Hello



Hello! It's the 8th of the month, which means it's Reverse Confetti blog hop time, and I'm sharing a card today using the uber cutie panda from the Miso Happy stamp set.

To create my card, I started by first creating a Midnight card base.  I then die cut a piece of Cloud White cardstock using the Striped Frame Cover Panel Confetti Cuts.  I then cut a piece of swiss cross patterned paper from the Free Spirit paper pad, and adhered it behind the window before securing it to the card front.


Next, I stamped the uber cute panda from Miso Happy in black ink before die cutting it with the Miso Happy Confetti Cuts.  I then colored the panda's nose, and secured him to the card front with foam tape.  The sentiment was die cut from Buttercup cardstock using the Hello & Thanks Label Confetti Cuts, popped up with foam tape and secured to the card front beneath the panda.  To finish up, I embellished with green enamel dots.

RC Sneak Peek Day 3 - Hello Beautiful



Hello! It's the final day of Reverse Confetti May sneak peeks, and today I'm sharing a card created using the new One Day at a Time stamp set.  Proceeds from the sale of this set benefit the Pink Fund, an amazing organization that "provides 90 day non-medical cost-of-living expenses to breast cancer patients in active treatment for breast cancer, so they can focus on healing, raising their families, and returning to the workplace." 

No automatic alt text available.

To create today's card, I started with a Stone card base and topped it with a piece of white CS that had been die cut using the Striped Frame Cover Panel Confetti Cuts. I then stamped the leftover piece of white CS with the flower and leaf images from Rose Garden in yellow, orange, gray and pink ink.



I then stamped part of one of the sentiments from One Day at a Time in black ink, and adhered the stamped panel to the card front on a diagonal using foam tape.  Next, the remainder of my sentiment was die cut from black CS using the Hello Thanks Label Confetti Cuts, and adhered it to the card front.  To finish up, I embellished with yellow enamel dots.

RC Sneak Peek Day 2 - Sky's the Limit


Hello! It's the second day of Reverse Confetti March sneak peeks, and today I'm sharing a card created using the new Take Flight stamp set.

To create my card, I started by first cutting a piece of patterned paper from the new Pattern Play paper pad, trimming it slightly shorter than a standard A2 card base.  I then cut off a small strip from the bottom and adhered the two pieces to the card front leaving a gap in the middle.  Next, I stamped the clouds and kite image from Take Flight in black ink onto white cardstock as well as another pattern from the Pattern Play paper pad.  The stamped images were colored, then die cut using the Take Flight Confetti Cuts.



Next, I die cut a Piggy Bank tag using the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts and topped with a piece of white CS that had been die cut using the Sunburst Tag Layer Confetti Cuts.  The white tag was then stamped with a sentiment from Take Flight using black ink, topped with a twine bow, then adhered to the card front with foam tape.  To finish up, the clouds and kite were adhered to the card base with foam tape, and I embellished with black enamel dots.
