Tea Party

Hey Stampers!  Happy St.Patty's Day!  I am bringing my new favorite card to make.  I watched Jennifer McGuire's video on this card and I have made three already.  I love it.  Its called Pop-UP Shadow Box cards. 

She gives several examples.  I chose to use what I consider the easiest one.  I am using images from the most recent release from Heartcraft Paper Alice, Cheshire Cat, and White Rabbit.  I colored my images with my Copics.  For White Rabbit I used N0, N2, and N4 for his body.  R35 for the hearts on his shirt, Y17 for his watch and E40 for his scroll, and E55 for his eyes. Cheshire Cat I used RV14 and V09.  Alice I used E00 and E000 for her skin, Y13,15,08 for her hair.  B91, B93, and B95 for her dress and hairband. R35 for her lips and her eyes are G17.  B99 for her tiny little shoes. 

I hand wrote the sentiment with an EK Success Journaling Pen.  The blue stripes are Blue Mirror peel offs from Love from Lizi and the glitter red around the inside of the circle is from stash.   This card when folded flat will fit a standard A2 envelope. 

You can find these amazing images and lots of others at HeartCraft Paper.  This is my project for today and I hope you liked it.  Thank you for stopping by.  Come and create something with me,

It’s okay to be Bonkers

Hey Stampers!  Happy Thursday! Today's post is going to be pretty short.  I am currently posting from my phone as our home internet is down until sometime today.  Today I am bringing you another image from the latest release from HeartCraft Paper.  The Cheshire Cat is my favorite from Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter would be my second. I love this saying.  I wanted to do something a little different so I printed everything on Neenan Solar White 110# card stock.   

I trimmed the sentiment down to fit into the 5x7 frame I found in my stash.  I colored my Mad Hatter with my Poly Chromo pencils.  I apologize but I didn't keep track of what I used. To give him a "mad" look, I added some Ebony Black Nuvo drops to his eyes, offset of course.  I added some clear glossy dots and matted the frame with some white glitter card stock.  I apologize for the shadowed picture but it was the best I had.  I am going to bring him to work and set him on my desk.  Them I will always have a smile.  

So this is my project for today. I hope you check out the amazing products that Monica has to offer. This is my 9th release with her and they just keep getting better and better. Don’t forget we have a current anything goes challenge over on the Challenge Blog.  Winners announced on April 1st.

It's Easter Time...almost

Hey Stampers!  Here is my offering for today's Try Stampin'on Tuesday Sketch Challenge. Here is your sketch inspiration for this week.
TSOT 398.png

I am trying to get an early start on my Easter cards so I decided to make this an Easter card.  I used an Echo Park paper kit called Celebrate Easter that I purchased at my local Tuesday Morning.  I will see if I can find it to link for you guys because I honestly have no idea how old it is.  The optional element this week is monochromatic, which I didn't do.  For my circle elements I used stickers from the paper kit and I used some of my Nuvo drops because I thought the front needed something.  I used Yellow Bird Glitter drops,  Calming Aqua Crystal Drops, and Supernova Dream Drops (these drops were exclusive to the Tonic Kit they came in so I can't link them). 
And here is the inside of the card. I used another sticker from the sheet. 

If you stopped by early in the morning, nothing is linked because our internet  is out till Thursday. I will try to link the products from work. I am so sorry about that.   This is my card for this challenge. I hope you play along.

Just a Little Release Day!

 Hey Stampers!  Happy Friday!  Not only is it Friday it is also release day at Heartcraft Paper.  This month's release is Alice in Wonderland themed.  When I saw this guy I knew I had to use him.  Cheshire Cat was always my favorite part of Alice in Wonderland.

I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do for my project when I came across my Rainbow Thermo Deco foil and I knew what I wanted.  I ran the images and sentiments through my laminator using the foil.  I fussy cut everything out.  Now normally I wouldn't post a photo with
that glare but I wanted you to be able to see the way the foil looked.  I picked a teal card base and called it good.  I didn't add anything else because there is so much shine from the foil.

You know what else happens on Release Day, a new challenge has gone live and we doing a blog hop to celebrate. As always, the winners from the challenge will be announced next month on Release Day.

Here is the order of the Blop Hop.  You can also link up with the party link below.  We are trying something new this month with this link so forgive us if there are "bugs" this time.

Andrea---you are here

I hope you check out the challenge and play along with us.  The prizes are fantastic and the images  for this release are so fun.  Thank you for stopping by.

Try Stampin' On Tuesday Sketch 397

Hey Stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  I am sharing a new card sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday. This week’s challenge is running parallel with Retro Rubber and is this week’s  optional challenge.  Along with the sketch if choose to use stamps the challenge is to use a stamp set or stamp that is at least a year old.

This week I did not use the optional element. My pattern paper however is at least a year so I guess I kind of followed it. Lol.

I followed the sketch but I made it a landscape card instead of portrait. I used paper from Hello Sunshine by Doodblebug Designs. One of the things I love about their patterned paper is that there is usually at least one page that has “cut aparts”. I used several for my card today. I love adding layers or mats when using sketches. So I used some Doll Pink to frame my image. Also instead of making just plain banners I used two sentiments and one with hearts. The only other thing I added was some Nuvo drops to my flower centers. I used Yellow Bird and Honeysuckle. I hope you check out this check out the challenge this week.  This is my card for today.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Spring...please

Hey Stampers. Happy Tuesday. I am bring you a new card Sketch and  challenge. I have the pleasure of  Guest Designing  for Try Stampin’onTuesday. I was very excited when Kaylin asked me to do this. I love card sketches so this is extra fun for me. Sketch 396 had an optional element of flower fun.

I am so ready for Spring. This past weekend we got 9.5 inches of snow and it has been really cold and I am done with winter lol.  As soon as I saw the Sketch I knew I wanted to add flowers of some kind. I used pattern paper from Flirty Floral by Queen & Co. I cut both pieces at the same time, cutting it so they were 4 1/8 by 5 1/4.  I matted it the pieces with a shimmery green from stash. My sentiment comes from a Queen
&Co. kit. I used the “Hello Spring”   The pink flowers were in my stash. I took some Nuvo Crystal Drops for the flower centers, Dandelion Yellow, I used some yellow dots from my stash.

This completes my card for today.  Check out the Try Stampin' on Tuesday blog for the link, rules, and prizes for the sketch challenge.  Thank you for stopping by. Come back next week when I will have a new challenge from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

Hey Chickies

Hey Stampers!  Happy Valentine's Day!  My card today features the new image Chickides from Heartcraft Paper.  I love this image because I feel like they are looking to get a girl in trouble, your three best friends showing up on your doorstep kind of trouble.  My base is textured yellow from my stash.  The green stripes are the Green Mirror Peel Offs from Love from Lizi. 

I colored these little cuties with my Copic markers.  Using the following: 
  chicks: Y13, Y15, and Y08
  beak: YR06
  basket: E41,42, 43.  Used my .03 Sepia multi-liner to create the dot detail on the basket.
 grass: G14 and G24

I added some dew drops and some colored confetti to add some accents.  And that is the card for today.  I hope you will check out the HeartcraftPaper for this image and lots of amazing other things.
