Karen Hallam and I are once again creating in tandem for our monthly CASEing Coast to Coast adventure. It was my turn to choose our direction and I suggested that we highlight a large sentiment.
Well it’s really beginning to feel like Fall here on the East Coast and hopefully also on the West Coast, where Karen lives. So I decided to embrace this wonderful Fall feeling (after a pretty brutal summer) and create a pretty card seasonal card.
I used the “Fall” stamp set and dies from Honey Bee Stamps for the sentiments. The patterned paper is from a DCWV paper pad along with copper foil paper. The sentiment strip is heat embossed with copper embossing powder.
The inside sentiment is from the retired SU set: Beautiful Autumn.
If haven’t already done so, please click HERE to head West to see which sentiment Karen chose to highlight. You’ll surely be inspired!
I’m also playing along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge and just getting it in under the wire here…
I chose the middle column down: Large sentiment, Free, Plaid
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your week is going well!
Smile…it’s Tic Tac Toe Thursday! I created today’s card for my daughter’s birthday. Emily loves happy faces and I knew as soon as I saw these cute dies by Whimsy Stamps that they would make the perfect card for her.
Here’s this week’s challenge board…
I chose the first row across: Ink Blending, Birthday, Square Card
I cut the smiley faces with white card stock and ink blended each using Simon Says Pawsitively Saturated inks. Here’s the colors I used…
This card was really a lot of fun to make and really put a smile on my face, as well.
I hope you’ll head over to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge to see what my teammates on Team O came up with this week. I also hope you’ll be inspired to join us with your own creation.
I titled this card an anniversary card. But in fact, it could work for any number of occasions. It’s also my card for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week…
There’s a few ways I could go here: (1) Second Column down: Frame It, Gold/Silver, Leaves (2) Right diagonal: Anniversary, Gold/Silver, Free and (3) Third Row across: Free, Leaves, CAS Design
The card front features a silver foil frame with an embossed panel inside. The leaf spray is a die from the Dainty Delight dies. I cut it out with white card stock and sponged it green. The sentiment is from the Dainty Delight stamp set and is punched using the Double Scalloped punch.
The inside is stamped with two sentiments from the Layering Leaves stamp set. I really like the font. I love embellishing the inside of my cards and the envelopes. I used a strip of dry embossed card stock and a strip of silver foil here.
Please head over to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge to check out what the rest of Team O created. I hope you’ll be inspired to share your own creation, as well. Thanks for stopping by today, it is always appreciated!
Congratulations! It’s a Boy…and a Girl!
I think Stampin’ Up!’s Little Dreamers Stamp set and coordinating dies are adorable. It’s been a while since I purchased a baby set and was so ready for this cute bundle. I would also use these sweet images on a baby’s first birthday card.
The Baby Boy card starts with a Basic White card base. The top and bottom panels are made from Coastal Cabana card stock measuring 1 1/2″ x 5 3/8″ and a pattern from the retired Dandy Designs DSP measuring 1 3/8″ x 5 1/4″. After adhering those panels, I stamped the sentiment. I colored part of the lion with Stampin’ Blends and using another pattern from the same DSP collection, paper pieced his PJs. I also added some glitter stickles to the star and some sequins for embellishments.
The inside sentiment is from the retired Made with Love stamp set.
The Baby Girl card is made exactly the same way, except I used the cute baby elephant image. It’s also paper pieced with a pattern from the Dandy Designs DSP. The card base is Petal Pink card stock and the panels are Basic White card stock and a pattern from the retired Country Gingham DSP.
So now when I need a baby card…I’m ready for It’s a Boy or It’s a Girl!
I may have babies on the brain as I recently adopted a fur baby of my own….please meet Olive!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a good day!
