Happiness by Jenny Gropp

Fun card from Jenny Gropp using  C8728 Happiness and E8723 Fun Friends!

 
I adore the silhouette stamps and this one is such a sweet and happy image! My shiny and sparkly is the metallic thread I used around the edges.
 You can see the Copics I used here. I pierced holes around the edges, using a template to keep them even.... well somewhat even, lol! I used this fun metallic thread to stitch, yes HAND STITCH around the edge. It does take a little longer and usually I'm always looking for a short cut when crafting. But most of the time I'm watching Netflix on my ipad when I'm in the craft room, so I don't mind it taking a little extra time if I am watching some TV.
All of the layers were made using Perfect Layer Rulers, no nesties.. just simple straight layers on this one. I tied a little bow with the copper thread and glued it in the corner. I used a Viva Copper pen to add tiny little copper pearl centers on the flowers in the image. A few glittery pearls in the lower left corner to finish it off.
 
Have a great day!

Merry Christmas by Jenny Gropp

We have a beautiful card today from Jenny Gropp using With Love #C9501, Christmas Tag Dies #DIE223-Z, Holly Cake #E16044
 
 
 
 
 I wanted to keep the Holly Cake white. To make that white stand out I added the blue in the background to help make it pop!
 
 
 Here are the Copics I used to color the rest of the image. I chose my colors based on the printed word paper in the background.
 
 
I added foam tape in between the layers for dimension. I used a Clear Wink of Stella on the white area of the cake.... It just doesn't show in the pictures. It looks sugary and sparkly in person! On the bottom edge I used just the edge of a Christmas Tag Die, cutting it in white as well and piecing the white letters back in. I also added red Swarovski crystals over the red berries for a little bling!
 
 
Here's the inside with a simple With Love sentiment. I used up the remaining paper to complete the inside. Finished card is an A2.
 
Have a great day!

Thankful by Dina Kowal

We have a beautiful project from Dina Kowal today!

Dina used Pumpkin Pair, CAC Vines Vertical, Thankful & Thank You for Thinking.

I watercolored the pumpkins using Distress Markers, and stamped a few background  images with the marker ink from my palette.

The card is a Pop-Up Book Card, and in general, foldy cards hate me... but this one was surprisingly friendly. Inside the card there are just 2 cut lines, and the score lines were easy to follow.

Once it's all folded in the right directions, the center section looks like an open book.


Have a great day!

Thanks For All You Do by Dina Kowal

We have a pretty fall card from Dina Kowal to share today using Bird Die set

Leafy Branch Die and the Spring Medley clear set.

I wanted to test out my new Kemper Spatter Brush so I used it to create this inky background for an inlaid scene.

The background has a fine shimmer over it, from a layer of copper and bronze PanPastels. I used Turquoise Inka Gold on the bird die cut.

Have a great day!

Birthday Cupcake Card Tutorial by Jeanne Streiff

Jeanne Streiff shares a cheery birthday card today using CL462 Sweet Treats CLEAR Set and the matching DIE113-Q Cupcake Die Set.

Birthday Cupcake F Jeanne_Streiff

I started out by painting some simple stripes onto white cardstock with Shinhan Poster Colors.

Birthday Cupcake Jeanne_Streiff

Next I created a wash with the paints by adding water for my cupcake parts (this creates a matching but lighter more transparent color).

Birthday Cupcake 1 Jeanne_Streiff

Birthday Cupcake 2 Jeanne_Streiff
