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.

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.

Divinity Designs LLC July Design Team Challenge

Divinity Designs LLC July Design Team Color Combo Challenge

Hi, everyone!  Kelley has given us another fun Design Team color challenge this month, which is based on the Shabby Pastels Paper Pad.  Check out the other samples HERE and HERE!

For my card, I chose to create a window scene since I haven't used these dies in a while.  The window was created with the following custom dies: Welcoming Windows, Window Shutter and Awning, Flower Box Fillers, and the word die and sentiment are from the 'You Bless Me So' Stamp/Die Duos set.  The 'siding' was created by cutting strips of the polka dot paper, sponging the edges, then adhered them so that they were overlapping. The largest die in the Pierced Rectangles Dies set was used to trim the polka dot panel. A white gel pen was used to highlight the flower centers. Other than white cardstock, all of the other pieces were cut from the Shabby Pastels Paper Pad.

Always There For You

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Janeen aka janeenk...congrats, Janeen!  A dear friend of mine passed away last week, so I need a sympathy card for his family.  I chose this beautiful card from Janeen's gallery to case today.  I used different colors, different stamps and a border die instead of a punch.  The coneflower image and sentiment are from the 'Forever Friends' set by Divinity Designs LLC and the border was cut with the Leafy Edged Borders Dies set.  The image was colored partially with markers then blended by watercoloring.  The bow was tied with a Bow Easy and two raised 'stripes' were added to the left edge of the panel with my Scor-buddy, however, the camera did not capture them well.  This card will be submitted to the Color Challenge and Clean and Simple 'Summer Garden' Challenge as well.

Next is a clean and simple design created with the Chevron Background Die, Bless This Baby Stamp/Die Duos, and the Sentiment Strips Dies. The two color chevron strips and the Baby die cut were cut from the Baby Girl Paper Pad.  This was super quick and easy to make. The sentiment was cut out with the Sentiment Strips Dies and popped up with foam tape, plus the Baby die cut was wide enough that foam tape was added easily to the back....yay!!

I have so many plans for the new Letterboard Dies set.......I will be making lots of gifts with this for sure, plus some signs for my crafty space!  For my card below, I chose a simple, but powerful message which stems from Proverbs 18:21, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and those who love it will eat the fruit thereof."  The words that we speak to ourselves and to others are very powerful and cannot be unspoken, so it is important to choose wisely and "Speak Life".  

Instead of black, I cut the letterboard section from dark gray, cut the frame from a pattern from the Weathered Wood Paper Collection, and framed it with a Scalloped Square Die cut from magenta cardstock.  The cross and flowers were cut with the Ornamental Crosses Dies set and the leaves were cut with the Bitty Blossoms Dies set.
