Dinoroar Birthday

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Claudette aka lamoore....congrats, Claudette!!  I love to mask and sponge scenes, so I chose this awesome card from Claudette's gallery.  Instead of trees and sun, I added grass and dinosaurs to my scene since I needed a birthday card for one of my nephews.  The stamp set I used is 'Dinoroar' from Stampin Up.  The dino's were stamped in Stazon Jet Black, then watercolored.  To finish out the scene, I used the following dies from Divinity Designs LLC: Clouds and Raindrops (stencil for clouds), Pierced Rectangles, and Double Stitched Rectangles.

Happy Birthday, Princess!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Diana Gibson....congrats, Diana!!  I chose this gorgeous card to case, but turned it into a birthday card for my niece.  Instead of an oval, I used a heart for the center and moved the sentiment panel to the other side.  The crown was stamped in Stazon Jet Black, colored with markers and sponges, then fussy cut and coated with a clear glaze pen.  Here is a list of items from Divinity Designs LLC used for this card:  Ornate Hearts Dies, Large Numbers Dies, Flourishes Embossing Folder, Pierced Rectangles Dies, Scalloped Rectangles Dies, Clouds and Raindrops Dies (tiny hearts), Easter Card Collection 2016 (crosses) and 'Princess' (retired from Our Daily Bread designs).

Never Stop Going

Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Cox and Cox....I thought that this rug was so cool, with the blended colors and copper colored fringe. For my card, I began by copper embossing the Grunge Cross onto white cardstock.  (Though this stamp set and coordinating die are retired from Our Daily Bread designs, I will not get rid of them since they are some of my faves for masculine cards.)  I normally would have created the Wrinkle Free Distress background first and then added the copper embossing, but I am so happy that I did the embossing first.  Once the inks (navy, green, brown) were smeared and spritzed onto a craft sheet, the raised embossing on the cardstock limited the saturation of the colors.  I love how it turned out!!  The inked panel was matted in white to balance the un-inked portions of the panel.  A separate cross was copper embossed, inked in the same manner, then cut out with the coordinating die and popped up with foam tape.  Brass brads and a metallic copper layer, along with a navy card base, rounded out the design.

Part of My Story

Hi, everyone!  Today I would like to share a quick and easy card which was created for my niece's birthday.   I found this Wrinkle Free Distress panel in my stash, then added pewter embossing using three different stamp sets from Stampin Up: Part of My Story, Organic Grace, and Pressed Flowers.  Wisteria ribbon was added (bow tied with a Bow Easy), along with lavender pearls.  Since the background panel was already done, the embossing and finishing touches only took about fifteen minutes or so....yay!!

One of my Peeps!

Hi, everyone!  After creating my last barnyard card, I had some 'parts and pieces' laying on my desk from the 'Barn Dies' set from Divinity Designs and I envisioned a chicken!  I grabbed some red and orange scraps, cut the comb with the hay die and the beak is the cut-out piece from the barn door....if you can't visualize it, take a look at the die set HERE.  The two panels were cut out with the Double Stitched Squares Dies, the sentiment is from 'Hogs and Kisses', and the gingham bow was tied with a Bow Easy.  I was so happy to find a large googlie eye in my eyeball stash!!

Divinity Designs LLC September New Release

Hi, everyone!  It's time for another brand new release from Divinity Designs LLC!!  To see the entire new release and all of the gorgeous designer projects, plus find out how to win some goodies, click HERE!

Here are the products used to create my card and to decorate the matching purse hanger hook:

Divinity Designs LLC Perk Up Stamp/Die Duos Divinity Designs LLC Custom Letter Board Dies

Divinity Designs LLC Custom USA Map Dies Divinity Designs LLC Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies

My card today features the new 'Perk Up' Stamp/Die Duos set, along with the Letter Board Dies set, tiny hearts from the 'Clouds and Raindrops' Dies, and medium thumb tack from the USA Map Dies set.  The coffee pot and cup were stamped with Stazon Jet Black, cut out with the custom dies, watercolored, highlighted with a white gel pen, then coated with a clear glaze pen.  The small letters, raised embossed areas of  'Coffee', hearts, and the black thumb tack were coated with the clear glaze pen as well.  The card base was scored with a Scor-buddy and the edges were inked for added dimension.

My second project is a decorated 'Purse Hanger' hook......to hang your bag onto the table edge instead of sitting it on the floor.  A circle was cut from ivory cardstock and edges sponged, the 'coffee' word was stamped with one of the sentiments from the 'Perk Up' Stamp/Die Duos set by using masking. The cup was watercolored and cut out like the card above.  After the tiny heart was added, Glossy Accents were used to fill in the complete space.  This was really easy to make, however, waiting two days to make sure the gloss was completely cured was NOT easy....I've ruined too many projects in the past by touching it to see if it was dry so I made myself wait this time! :)

Because of the awesome price, I purchased a handful of these hooks from the company from which I buy my magnet cards and storage boxes for my cutting dies, Stamp-n-Storage.  (Click on 'hook only' on the wastebasket page.)

Flip Flap Barnyard

Hi, everyone!  I recently saw this tutorial on SplitcoastStampers.com for a Flip-Flap Card and I knew I wanted to give it a try, using the fun farm-themed goodies from Divinity Designs LLC. Here are the items used: Farm Friends Stamp/Die Duos, Barn Dies, Farm Fence Die, Clouds and Raindrops Dies, Grass Hill Die, Grass Lawn Die; on the inside is a scripture verse from the 'Farmer's Prayer' stamp set.   I had to adjust the measurements to fit my pieces, but it worked out great!  (A piece of advice: make sure you don't glue things permanently until you know everything works just right.)  For my lever arm, I used one of the 'Bookmarks Dies' to shape one end only of the strip.

Letter Board Magnet Gift

Hi, everyone!  Today I'd like to share a fun refrigerator magnet I created for my brother-in-law's birthday, using the Letter Board Dies set from Divinity Designs.  They love to cruise as much as Hubs and me, so I made a magnet for him to place on the fridge next to his cruise count-down calendar!  I began by stamping the scene in Stazon Jet Black with the largest image from the 'Bon Voyage' stamp set; the sky was sponged, then the panel was cut out and embossed with the Letter Board Dies set.  The frame and letters were cut from black cardstock.  After the letters and frame were adhered to the scenic panel, a clear glaze pen was used to coat them.  I added an extra layer of cardboard on the back then cut a square from a magnet sheet, with adhesive backing, to line the backside of the piece.

Dare To Get Dirty - Day Two!!!!

Hi, everyone!  It's day two of Dare To Get Dirty week over at Splitcoast!!  My card today is for (my former Design Team Sister) Sandee's DTGD19stampersandeeA challenge. To see the challenge details, check out the Dare To Get Dirty Forum. If you'd like to become a Fan Club member, click on this Joining the Fan Club link. Regarding my card, I began with a Soft Suede card base then swiped vertical lines with the matching ink pad to create a 'faux wood' look. The Chicken Wire Background Die was cut from black cardstock and popped up with foam tape. To make it more rustic, the rooster and sentiments from 'Rise & Shine' were stamped onto designer paper instead of cardstock. The words to the sentiment were stamped in sections, using masking, onto small die cut sections cut with the Log Cabin Quilt Die; the image panel was cut out with the Circles Dies set and matted with the Double Stitched Circles Dies set.  The panels were all sponged heavily on the edges. The fastener legs of the brads were cut off, leaving the heads of the brads which were glued to the burlap layer.

My first card is a Z-fold with scenes on the front and back, so there are four photos in order to share all of the details.  The card base was cut from a 6 x 12 piece of cardstock with the new 'Z-Fold with Layers Dies' set. All of the adorable animals were stamped and cut with the 'Farm Friends' Stamp/Die Duos set (LOVE THESE!!); the barn and silo were cut from the 'Barn' Dies set; the fences were cut with the 'Farm Fence' Die; the three sentiment stamps are all from the 'Farmer's Prayer' set.  Additional dies used: 'Clouds and Raindrops', 'Grass Lawn', 'Squares', and 'Pierced Squares'.  The first photo shows the front of the card when it's closed up.

The next view shows the backside of the card.  An extra barn and silo were die cut and adhered carefully to mirror the front.  A tiny section of the roof line on the left was trimmed out so that the fold of the card wouldn't be too thick to close.

My next card features the 'Rise and Shine' stamp set, along with the new 'Chicken Wire Background' Die, 'Weathered Wood' Paper Collection, Double Stitched Circles Dies, Circles Dies, Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies, Pennant Flags Dies, and the buttons from the 'Sewing Set' Dies set.  The rooster was stamped with Stazon Jet Black onto watercolor paper and was colored with pencils....I liked the rough texture of it, so I didn't watercolor to blend the pencils.  The background was sponged, using masking. Two different sizes of burlap ribbon were added plus linen thread for the buttons, which were die cut then coated with a clear glaze pen.

My third card is a quick and easy card created with the goat stamp and die from the 'Farm Friend' Stamp/Die Duos set and a sentiment from the 'Hogs and Kisses' stamp set.  If you've been around goats, you will know that they can climb and balance on anything, so I thought it would be fun to have them stacked on top of one another!  Score lines were added for a little 'something' but no embellishments were added.
