"I Love You Papa Bear" Cards

I created the following card to enter into a color challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare, but I'm an idiot and misread the challenge deadline....so I missed it. :( Disappointing, but not a big deal really. I got to play with the Jack Cardmaking stamp and thin cuts for the first time AND I ended up with a cute card to give to my hubby. So....it's all good.
I created my own sentiment by masking the second part of the "I love you" sentiment and pairing it with "Papa Bear".  You can see how I did it by checking out the Facebook link that I include below.
I added the hearts on the inside to cover up the inky finger print that I accidentally left when stamping the sentiment. 
Then today, I decided to make another version for my Facebook Business page, letting the color palette of the Jack paper guide me. If you'd like to view the video that shows how I made this card, head over to my Facebook page.
(Seems that I need a new blade in my trimmer.)
Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):

Thanks for stopping by today.
Until next time, happy crafting!

Hello Foxy meets Jack

As I mentioned in my previous post about this month's stamp of the month, "Hello Foxy", it's such a cute stamp set. At first glance you may not realize just how versatile it is, but if you saw my other card I made using this stamp set, you know what I mean.  If you didn't see it, you can see it here
.
I knew that I wanted to use one of the adorable little foxes, so for this card I chose to pair the little guy with one of our newest papers, "Jack". After all, what goes better with foxes than a woodsy paper, right? 

I wanted a sketch to give me a jumping off point, so I jumped over to Mojo Monday to see what the sketch was for this week and I knew instantly that it would be a perfect sketch to showcase the little fox.  Here's what evolved.
I created the burlap accent piece by adhering four lengths of burlap ribbon side-by-side.

...and here's a look at the Mojo Monday sketch.
If you like what you see and would like to get this stamp set for yourself, you can get one through my website for $17.95 OR get it for only $5 with a $50 purchase!  You have to do it this month though, because as the name implies, this is only available for the month and when June is over, this stamp set will no longer be available. 

Until next time, happy crafting!





June Stamp of the Month..."Hello Foxy"

June 2017's Stamp of the Month is called.....
****Hello Foxy****

This month's stamp of the month is such a cute stamp set that features trendy foxes and classic wreath and flower stamps.  It wasn't until I finished my second card that I realized just how versatile it actually is. You can see the second card here. As you can see, the two cards I created are completely different. The one shown below is definitely the more feminine of the two and has nothing to do with foxes. ;) 
.
Anyway, a couple of nights ago, I spent a bunch of time on Pinterest, getting carried away with pinning some clean and simple cards.  With that style so fresh in my mind, I decided to create a CAS card using the wreath. However, I just couldn't decide on the colors, so I decided to search for some color challenges online. Many had color combos that just wouldn't work for a wreath, but then I finally came across one at Heart 2 Heart Challenges that would. I lucked out that they were holding a color challenge this week. :) 

To get a gold foil mat for my sentiment, I placed three strips of gold foil tape on a strip of white daisy cardstock and then cut it to size.

 Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Stamps Used: Hello Foxy June 2017 SOTM
Papers: White Daisy CS
Emellishments: Gold Foil Tape, Bitty Sparkles
Other: Blending PenMicrotip Scissors, Foam Tape, Paper Trimmer (Fiskars), Score Board (Martha Stewart), ATG Adhesive (Scotch)

Here's a look at the entire stamp set...

...and here's a look at the colors used in this challenge.

If you like what you see and would like to get this stamp set for yourself, you can get one through my website for $17.95 OR get it for only $5 with a $50 purchase!  You have to do it this month though, because as the name implies, this is only available for the month and when June is over, this stamp set will no longer be available. 

Until next time, happy crafting!
