Baby Rattles in Blue

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is the amazing Lee Ann Barrett aka whippetgirl....congrats, Lee Ann!  I chose this adorable card to recreate today, using the following items from Divinity Designs: Baby Boy Paper Pad, Bless This Baby Stamp/Die Duos, Baby Blessings Dies (rattles), Sentiment Strips Dies, Arrows Mixed Media Stencil, Pierced Squares Dies and Pierced Rectangles Dies. The Arrows stencil was used to dry emboss the background....I love the versatility of stencils!!  The blue paper and two patterns are from the Baby Boy Paper Pad...such a fun collection! Though not very visible in the photo, a clear glaze pen was used to highlight the baby rattles and sentiments.  Linen thread was the only added embellishment.

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.

First up is a shaker card which features three solids and one gingham pattern from the new Baby Boy Paper Pad, the AWESOME new Chevron Background Die, and the adorable Baby Blessings Dies set.  The onesie was cut from the gingham paper first; the bib die cut out the shaker aperature; a piece of clear stamp packaging was adhered to the back to create the window.  Two layers of foam tape were added to make a wall for the buttons and dew drops.  Another white onesie was cut to seal the back of the shaker and the lacy bib border was used to frame the shaker window. Matching ribbon and a bow tied with a Bow Easy were added.

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.

Letterboard Door Sign

Converse Chucks
Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from Converse....I knew that they still made shoes, but had no idea of the variety!  I chose these awesome sneakers as inspiration....the purple and black combo really flipped my switch!  What I created is not a card but a letterboard sign for my Mother-in-law's utility closet at work.  (All stamps and dies used are from Divinity Designs.)  The black letterboard, letters, and lilac frame were cut with the Letter Board Dies set (available July 1st); the butterflies were stamped and cut with the Butterfly and Bugs Stamp/Die Duos set (a clear glaze pen was used to add dots to the wings before coloring as a resist agent); other dies used: Fence, Grass Lawn, and Scalloped Squares.

Divinity Designs LLC Color Combo Design Team Challenge - June


Hi, everyone!  This month's Design Team Color Challenge of pink, yellow, and lavender are based on the pretty patterns from the Spring Flowers Paper Collection.  My clean and simple design uses one floral pattern and three solids from the paper pack.  The frame was cut out by nesting the two largest dies from the Pierced Rectangles set then popped up with foam tape over the white card base.  The three balloons were cut and embossed with the Birthday Balloons Dies; a clear glaze pen coated the tiny embossed hearts; foam tape was used to pop them up for dimension.  Baker's twine was threaded through the opening on the tag which was stamped with the 'Treat Tag Sentiments #3' stamp set, cut out with the Treat Tags Dies set, then popped up with foam tape.

Love Celebrating You!

Hi, everyone! This week's Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast is to use balloons on your CAS cards.  This is a perfect opportunity to use a new stamp set from Stampin Up, 'Hand Delivered'. The image pieces were black heat-embossed on white cardstock and onto a floral pattern from the Petal Promenade designer paper pack....on the back of the floral design was a marble pattern, so I alternated the balloons with the two designs.  The full white image was fussy cut and the pattern paper was paper-pieced onto it; the leftover sections were colored with markers.  The sentiment was heat-embossed onto the card base to coordinate with the image.  A punched oval was added as a rug for her to stand on.  No embellishments were added.....easier for mailing.

Path to Happiness

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Michelle aka mfb....congrats, Michelle!!  I went way back to the beginning of Michelle's gallery and chose this awesome card to case.  I used similar colors, but different stamps, and placed the staples in a different spot, but the general design remains.  The stamp set used on my card today is 'By The Bay'....I love stamp sets which make it easy for masculine designs!  This card only took me about fifteen minutes to make, which is a miracle for me! :)

You Are Bee-utiful!

Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Fudge and Mabel....wow, such incredible works of art with felt! I fell in love with this felted bee, so tried to recreate it with paper.  I used the following items from Divinity Designs to create my card:  'Bee Happy' stamp set, Butterfly and Bugs Stamp/Die Duos, Bitty Blossoms Dies, Double Stitched Circles Dies, Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, Pierced Rectangles Dies, and the Weathered Wood Paper Collection. The blue/gray paper has been in my stash for over ten years...it actually looks like parchment, but matched the look of the felt in the inspiration photo.  I will save this card until next month for my niece's birthday.

Father's Day Fishing Vest

Hi, everyone!  I had a total blast creating three identical Father's Day cards with these super fun die sets from Divinity Designs from the May release!  The card base was cut with the Couture Collection Dies, the letters were cut with the Alphabet Flags Dies, and all of the fishing vest pieces and accessories were cut with the Fishing and Hunting Vest Dies.  I love that there are so many combinations to choose with the pockets, zippers, snaps, etc.!  Once the card was all put together, I used a clear glaze pen to highlight the lure, bobber, zippers, etc.  plus some I added some fishing line for fun!  To create a sentiment panel for the inside, I traced the inside edge of the shirt die onto white cardstock and cut it by hand...easy peasy!

You Make the World a Better Place!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is the amazing Wanda Cullen aka cullenwr....congrats, Wanda!!  I chose this awesome alcohol ink card to case today....I love her alcohol ink background and cool layout.  For my card, I have used the Globe and Stand Dies (from Divinity Designs) and a sentiment from 'Color My World'.  I used a vertical banner since my sentiment was larger, but heat embossed the sentiment as Wanda did on her card.  The sentiment was cut with the Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies using the die resizing technique to shorten the length of the die.  Though different dies and colors were used, the overall layout remains.  I used gold embossing powder and gold metallic cardstock to bring out the gold tones in the Alcohol Ink Background, which was cut out with the Double Stitched Rectangles Dies set. Foam tape was used on the die cut pieces for added dimension against the background. Tiny stars were cut with the USA Map Dies set, then coated with a clear glaze pen to help them stand out a bit.

Divinity Designs LLC June New Releases

Hi, everyone!  Welcome to the June new release party for Divinity Designs LLC!!  Wow, what an amazing release again this month.....check out the entire release, all of the team's projects, plus info on how to win some goodies by clicking HERE. 

Here are the products used in my two card samples for today:

Divinity Designs LLC Custom Globe and Stand Dies Divinity Designs LLC Custom USA Map Dies

Divinity Designs LLC Color My World Divinity Designs LLC Adventure Awaits

Divinity Designs LLC Bubbles Mixed Media Stencil Divinity Designs LLC Americana Quilt Paper Collection

Divinity Designs LLC Custom Quilted Background Die Divinity Designs LLC Custom Log Cabin Quilt Die

Divinity Designs LLC Custom Scalloped Rectangles Dies Divinity Designs LLC Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies

Divinity Designs LLC Custom Scalloped Circles Dies Divinity Designs LLC Custom Double Stitched Circles Dies

Divinity Designs LLC Custom Circles Dies Divinity Designs LLC Custom Bitty Borders Dies

For my first card, the Globe and Stand Dies were cut out of copper metallic paper.  The globe frame was adhered over an alcohol ink panel.  The globe and stand were then adhered to a panel which was dry embossed and sponged using the Bubbles Mixed Media Stencil and trimmed down with a Pierced Rectangles Die.  The sentiment from 'Color My World' was copper heat-embossed one line at a time onto die-cut panels from the Log Cabin Quilt Die. On the inside of the card, the remaining piece of the stenciled panel was adhered to the card base as framing for the sentiment panel.  (Tip: when die-cutting rectangle panels, I will center the dies onto an A2 sized panel before cutting.  Save the leftover frame to use as a mat later.....this method has saved me tons of cardstock!)

I had a blast creating a quilt design for my next card.  The USA Map Dies set was used four times to die cut the navy frame, plus alternating patterns from the Americana Quilt Paper Collection.  Per my usual technique for quilt cards, two sticker panels were created with my Xyron Sticker Maker....one for the map and one for the Quilted Background Die.  By creating a sticker panel, the quilt pieces do not have to be adhered one at a time....start with the frame and then press each inserted piece onto the sticker.  The sentiment from 'Adventure Awaits' was framed using the following dies: Double Stitched Circles, Circles, and Scalloped Circles.  The largest of the Scalloped Rectangles Dies was used to mat the main panel and the Bitty Borders Dies was used at the bottom along with red baker's twine.  Two tiny hearts cut with the USA Map Dies set were added to Indiana and Arizona, then coated with a clear glaze pen.
