Celebrate You Card

I’m trying to catch up, I really am!

I was up on Father’s Day on the Crafty Power Blog, and I had splurged and bought a bunch of Unity Stamps to play with. Here’s the post with the details: Celebrate Dad with a Card. Here’s the pic:

Now stay tuned for tomorrow, I used almost all the same supplies for a different card. No, I’m not being lazy, but we had Spunky’s graduation party this weekend and I had to clear off my crafting area in the dining room, and well, I just had a few supplies within reach.

Also, tomorrow’s post (June 19) is a blog hop, and there will be prizes involved!

Happy Tuesday!

Supplies:

Flower Pot Card

Its been a long hot summer! Most of my flower pots survived, but only by the grace of automatic sprinklers!

I really had fun making this card! I used Jillibean Soup’s Macho Nacho Soup kit to make a feminine inspired card. Of course Spellbinders™ dies did the heavy lifting, and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® keeps everything in place!

I used 3D Foam Squares to create a curve in the flower pot and the folds in the leaves, and Dodz 3D to form the flowers.

More A-Door-Able Cards!

I have a how-to tutorial for these A-Door-Able Cards on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power Blog today.

Beth Pingry Door Cards

These were inspired by a post I did a while back, here…but you can’t see the card on that post because it has been published, along with 2 more cards I made!! Big puffy ♥s to CardMaker Magazine!

So this edition is from last spring, and I apologize for not screaming from the rooftops then, I had been buried in work at the time and hardly had time to come up for air.

The first is the original Red Door Card that was part of a Flourishes blog hop. The wreath is from a Flourishes Stamp.

The next one, and I’m not a ‘yellow’ person at all, just came together for a springtime door, with Flower Soft in the tussy mussy.

And the third, a white iridescent cover stock from WorldWin Papers, has embossed vellum in the center oval.


Sorry, it’s not the best photo, white on white is hard enough without the sheen, but you get the idea.

All the die cuts were from Spellbinders Nestabilities, and the cardstock from WorldWin Papers. Of course I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L’s 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner.

I have soooooo many more door ideas, so stay tuned!

Thanks for coming by today!

Here are the supplies for the first Red Door image at the top:

A Sparkly Card!

I’ve got a quick card today,

on the SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Blog.  The post has more details on how I created it.

The textured white ribbon is from the Los Angeles garment district shopping trip after CHA.  I don’t have a source for it, I wish I would have bought a lot more of it!

Supplies:

I’m heading back into the chaos, the relatives are arriving tomorrow and I still have loads of laundry and a few more dust bunnies to evict.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Today’s new die is Nested Tea Cups

S4-350 Nested Tea Cups $ 19.99
Small Cup: 1 ¼ x 1 1/8”
Small Handle ½ x 5/8”
Medium Cup 2 1/8 x 1 7/8”
Medium Handle ¾ x 1 ½”
Large Cup 3 x 2 5/8”
Large Handle 1 1/8 x 2”

Today I have a 5 x 7 canvas with stamped tea cups, precariously stacked.


I had the idea in my head, loved the direction it was going in with the stamped and colored cups, but then it just seems like it needs something else…but I ran out of time and brain cells over the weekend. This is one of those things that I’ll set aside and most likely rework until I am happier with it.

On that note though, I like that it really looks like an elegant Victorian tea cup.  I used embossing ink, carefully applying it to the rim only, by inking just that part of the die template, called reverse stenciling.  I embossed in the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine, then added embossing powder and heated.

The saucer is heat embossed the same way.  I curled the cups to make them look rounded, and used SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares and Crafty Foam Tape to give the cups some lift.

Christmas Gift Bag Toppers

Welcome everyone!  I’m getting ready for the holidays!

I made these gift bag toppers over the weekend.  They’re  fun, festive and quick to make with JustRite® Stampers and Spellbinders™ dies!

I stamped with the JustRite Stampers sets and heat embossed the designs.  I used gel pens to color inside some of the lines to add a pop of color.  The center of the stamp allows room to stamp a greeting or write a name.

Once the ink was dry I die cut and embossed the images with Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornament and 2011 Heirloom Ornament dies.  I attached the ornament shapes onto clothes pins with SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Crafty Power Tape.  Tie ribbon above the ornament, add a spot of bling and they’re done!  Just clip to a gift bag!

Supplies:
