Foxy Love

hey Stampers!  Happy Saturday.  I am bringing you a multi-tasker kind of card.  By that I mean that the way it is, it could be Valentine's Day, Anniversary, or just an I love  you card.  This is another new image from Heartcraft Paper's new December release.  It is called Foxy Kind of Love.

My card size is a little different today.  It is 3.5 x 6.  My card base is red (which is a Recollections piece from my stash).  My image is printed on Ultra Smooth card stock.  My mat piece is red mirror card stock that is also from my stash.  My only accessories are pink glitter sprinkles from by stash that by Doodlebug and I used a little bit of my glitter washi tape.

I colored the foxes using E13, E15, and E18, the darkest part of the boy's tail is E59.  The hearts are R08 and R27.  Her bow us RV02 and RV14.

Because I don't know exactly what I want to use this card for I did not stamp anything on the inside yet.  So that is my card for today.  I hope you will stop by Heartcraft Paper and check this image and all the other wonderful things that Monica has available.  Remember you also have time  to enter a project in the new Anything Goes Challenge #6 on the blog.  Winners are chosen on the first of the month when the new release debuts.  Also did you know that Heartcraft Paper has a fan page,  join here for fun and inspiration.

Sending hugs

Hey Stampers!  Happy Saturday! Today is December 1st which means its RELEASE DAY for Heartcraft Paper.  If you are following along on the hop that we have today, you are joining me from Tina Bickers Turner's blog.  If you would like to go back and see what you might have missed, here are the links for everyone.

HeartcraftPaper Tania Cordie Judy Markowitz Marcia Caradinta Alina Tanner Amanda Stevens Tina Bickers Turner Andrea Jacobsen--you are here!

The image I used for my card today is Sending Hedgehugs and how cute is he!  I did a little different color medium today.  I used my Spectrum Noir Colored pencils.  I used Cinnamon, Cider, and Paprika to color my hedgehog.  The inside of his mouth is Antique Rose as well as the hearts in the sentiment.  His nose and feet are colored with Expresso.  Now I know you are probably thinking how the heck did she do that card?  Well I will linked to the video I found.  This is called a Floating Pop Box card.  Even though it looks complicated, it actually came together very quickly.  Here is a side view of the card.

I love that it truly looks like he is floating!  My card stock and pattern paper is all from my stash.  The red base is from Recollections (this is the Michael's brand).  The patterned paper is from the Love Bug collection from Doodlebug Designs which I couldn't find to link so I would assume it is no longer available.  For a finishing touch I added Doodlebug Glitter Sprinkles and my card is done.  Now this card is about 6x6 just a little under that so it will fit in a 6x6 envelope.  You can sign your message on the back of the card.  This little guy would make any one's day.

In addition to it being release day, it also means that we have a new challenge up on the HCP Challenge blog. So if you love the new release, enter a project in the challenge, you have a chance to win images from the new release.

Also did you know that Heartcraft Paper has a Facebook group where you can get inspiration, meet new people, and have fun.  So that is all I have for you today (which I know is a lot!)  Please check out Heartcraft Paper for Sending Hedgehugs and many other great images, SVG files, and Digital Papers

A Little Christmas

Hey Stampers! Happy Thursday!  Today's card is for the new challenge on the Southern Girls Challenge.  This week's challenge is Anything Goes.  I have been making Christmas cards and planning my Christmas cards.  My card today does not have any stamping.  It is a card sketch and sentiments images from the Christmas Town 6x6  paper pad from Doodlebug.  My card is standard A2 top folding card.  I used Operation Write Home Sketch 170.  I really like these sketches because they already have the measurements on them.   On this card I used paper from both Christmas Town by Doodlebug and Jolly by Pink and Main.  My mats are Green Leaf and Schoolhouse Red  card stock from Simon Says Stamp.  The stripes of glitter are some glitter washi tape from my stash.  Simple quick card.  I have made ten cards so far using this sketch and the sentiment images from the Christmas Town pad. 

I hope you will take a moment and enter a project in the challenge.  Thank you for stopping by today.  Come and create something with me

Without Change Their is No Growth

 Hey Stampers!  Happy Wednesday!  Before I talk about the card, I just wanted to share some news with you.  This will be my final post for The Project Bin.  It is time for a change of the guard so to speak so I will still be here sharing cards and fun but I won't be a DT member anymore. 

So for my final card with the DT, I used the North Pole set and some goodies from my stash.  I used Reverse Confetti card sketch #20 for my card today. I have been using card sketches for a little while and I love them.  They take all the guess work out of the card layout.  You just have to pick your stamps and papers.  I found Kristie Marcotte and she makes a ton a cards and almost always uses card sketches.  If the sketch doesn't have measurements on it, she will figure them out and provide them for  you.  So I have linked to her blog for the sketch that I used so you have all the measurements.   The pattern paper is from the Jolly 6x6 paper pad from Pink and Main.  The stickers are from my local Dollar Tree and the glitter washi is from stash. 

I stamped my sentiments in Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink and my circles were cut using my Never Ending Circle Dies from Kat Scrappiness.  The card stock used to mat all the pattern papers and the circle is Schoolhouse Red from Simon Says Stamp.  So that is my card today.  I hope you will continue to shop The Project Bin as Denise has fantastic sets with some sassy sentiments.  Thank you for stopping by.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hey Stampers! Its Project Bin day on the blog and because it is Thanksgiving eve, my card today guessed it is Thanksgiving themed. 

I used the fantastic set, Eat Pie.  I stamped the sentiment in Tangelo Memento ink.  To create the card and the layers I used a Mojo Monday card sketch #361. Card sketches used to really intimidate me but then I found Kristie Marcotte.  She makes amazing 6x6 card tutorials and uses card sketches for most all her cards.  She figures out the measurements and then she posts the sketch with all the measurements on her blog.  It takes all the guessing out of it AND makes fantastic looking cards.  My base is a side folding A2 size card.  The patterned paper is called Happy Harvest by Queen & Co. I cut my circles using my Never Ending Circle dies from Kat Scrappiness.  For the frame of my circle and the single strip I used a piece gold mirror card stock from my stash.  For a final finishing touch I used my Ripened Pumpkin Nuvo Crystal drops to add some extra interest and texture. 

This is my project for today.  I hope you visit The Project Bin to check out this fabulous set and all the other sets that Denise offers. 

I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  Thank you for stopping by.

Snappin Christmas

Hey Stampers!  Happy Tuesday. I am bringing you a super cute image from Heartcraft Paper called Snappin’ Christmas.  This little guy just makes me giggle with his grumpy face. I printed him on Ultra Smooth White card stock from Crafters Comapnion. He is 4.25 x 5.5. I colored him using my Copics. Here is what I used  for the Icing on the Gingerbread man G02, G07, G09.  His nose G28.  The Man himself I used E30,31, 33,35,37, and 39

The card base is white 6x6. The patterned paper is from an old Recollections 6x6 pad called  Bright Christmas.  I fussy cut my gingerbread man out along with the banner that says Have a Snappin’ Christmas. I wanted it to look a little whitewashed so here is what I used for Copics. E40, zE42, E43, and E50.

To give him a little sparkle I used some White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops to go over his stripes of  “frosting”. I used some Woodland Green Nuvo Crystal Drops and added some drops to the banner ends. To finish him, I used my white gel pen to add some white dots to his cheeks  I did not stamp anything inside the card yet.

Just a reminder, you have until 11/28/18 to create and post a project for the Challenge 5 on our challenge blog. Winners will be announced on 12/1/18 when the next release debuts.   Did you know Heartcraft Paper has a Facebook group. Join us for inspiration, fun, and sneak peeks.

So that is all I have for you today. I hope you enjoyed my card and will visit Heartcraft Paper to see this image and all the other amazing things Monica has for you.   A look ahead to what is coming Sneak Peeks of the new release next week. I can’t wait to share what is coming for December.

Season's Greetings!

Hey Stampers! Happy Wednesday.  It's Project Bin day!  I am using the stamp set North Pole for my card today! 

My card today is a 4-bar card.  It measures 3 1/2 x 5. All the paper and card stock is from stash (working really hard on using my stash).  So my card base is an ivory card stock.  I used pattern paper from an old collection from Recollections (which is the Michael's brand).  The silver glitter is from Pretty Papers from Queen & Co.  I cut the glitter piece 3 1/4 x 4 3/4, this paper is self adhesive so I removed the release paper and attached the paper to the light blue patterned paper.  I stamped the sentiment "Season's Greetings" from the North Pole set inSimon Says Stamp clear ink  and used silver embossing powder which of course I heat set.  The snowflakes on the sentiment piece are from a snowflake from the same set.  Now its the snowflake at the top of one of the other sentiments from the set but I carefully cut it away so I could use it create my background.  To create my snowflake embellishment I used the snowflake from the Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame from Memory Box.  I cut one snowflake from the glitter paper and one from the same blue that I used to stamp the sentiment.  I adhered them together with liquid glue.  I offset them just a bit before the glue could dry and then I glued it to the corner.  I put a clear crystal in the center of the piece.  To add some extra sparkle (cause the glitter paper wasn't enough) I added a small clear crystal to the center of three of the snowflakes in my background.  The sparkle on this card is ridiculous but I am so happy with how this turned out. For one final finishing touch (and to cover a mistake that was making me crazy) I added some white ribbon that is silver edged to the bottom of the card. 

I hope you will check out the North Pole stamp set and all the other amazing sets available at The Project Bin.  This is all I have for you today, thank you for stopping by.
