I wanted the Funny Pumpkins to look like they are falling out of the Halloween paper bag. I used one panel from the Treat Bag Die to create a faux shopping bag. I used the Scalloped Rectangles Die Set to create the base of my card and to give the treat bag a coordinating scalloped edge. The “Hey Pumpkin” sentiment is also from the Funny Pumpkins stamp set.

Hello everyone today I created a Baby Dragons Card featuring the new Dragons Stamp & Dragons Dies set! I wanted to give a new twist to a “Welcome Baby Card” This gave it a little magical twist.
I created a little nest out of simple Kraft Cardstock that was thinly cut and crumpled up to lay my little Dragons hatching from their eggs on. The eggs are double layered with a touch of gold paint pen on the inside for a little nod to a magical movie. These were from a simple egg cut file made on my Silhouette Cameo. The Dragons are colored with Copics and speckled to give them a look of fresh scales. To be honest I thing the tech one looks like it has chickenpox. I giggle a little every time I see it.
The magical sentiment from the Dragons Stamp Set is layered with stitched banners from the Make A Card #17 Die Set. I wanted to give them all a sense of being in the sky. To give the card a little accent I used teal enamel dots from the new Dragons Dreams Enamel Dots set. This ethereal set comes with many solid colors and coordinating glitter enamel dots.
The inside off the card also got a little magical touch with a baby Dragon frying from his golden shell. I created the sky scene by cutting a cloudy template out of scratch Cardstock and left the center blanket for a sweet message.
C.C. Designs August Preview Day 2 | Welcome everyone to C.C. Designs August Preview Day 2!!! I am Happy to announce that I am now part of the C.C. Designs Designs Team!!!! Yes Im here trying to type and jump up and down!
We have several beautiful and imaginative stamps and die sets for this month’s release! This release will be available August 2nd, 2018 at 1:00pm. For August Preview Day 2 I get to share the NEW Clowns Stamp and Die sets!! For this celebration I chose to make a Shaker Card!
When I think of Clowns I also think of the Circus and especially Cotton Candy!!! So I wanted these clowns to reflect my love and slight obsession with Cotton Candy!
The Clowns Stamp Set has all of the Birthday sentiments you will need for this and many other cards in a fun and whimsical font. I used the “Happy Birthday” stamp from this collection and just curved it on my stamp block to be able to go around my round shaker topper on the card. To make the shaker I used the Circle Scalloped Metal Die. The larger circle die made the frame for the shaker window. Then I layered the Circle Scalloped Metal Die over a Stitched Circle Die that is now retired but any circle that frames the Scalloped Circle would work perfectly.
The sentiment is stamped on the ever so cute stitched banner die cuts from the Make A Card #17 die set. This set has so many dies to chose from for any cards. These banners added the finishing touches to the card just tucked in the pretty scallops. Lets face it everything is cuter with stitches.
Summer Berry Cards | Cinco De Mayo Summer Fun Blog Hop
Summer Berry Cards | Cinco De Mayo Summer Fun Blog Hop: Welcome to stop of the Cinco De Mayo Summer Fun Blog Hop!!! I hope you are enjoying all of the wonderful creations our creative team has come up with today! I love the beginning of summer and all of the wonderful things we can do, but my favorite thing of summer is the seasonal fruit. I know that is a little random but I am a huge fan of strawberries and any berry to honest. If you follow me on my youtube channel you may know that I have a love for vintage berry baskets (along with my obsession for vintage mason jars). i wanted to create a set of cards that shows just that. My love of berries and berry baskets. Although the card sentiments say “Hello” to when you send it to a friend in all honesty is me saying hello to the Berry Season.
I wanted to use my new Sunny Studios Berry Bliss stamp set and the Berry Basket die from Sizzix. The Berry Basket Sizzix die is meant to create a 3D berry basket but I only used one panel for these cards.
To give the Berry Baskets more dimension I simply cut a strip of the same yardstick as the baskets in the same length and half an inch wide. All of the embellishments have been mounted with 3M foam mounting tape for some extra pop.
I used Kraft cardstock for all of the bases with a white yardstick layer. The case of the cards were stamped with the My Favorite Things gingham background stamp in Lawn Fawn Guava ink.
The the layer strawberries were stamp with Lawn Fawn Guava ink for the first two layers and then Lobster for the top layer for more dimension. This way I did not need three different ink pads.
I used May Arts jute twine to wrap on e of the berry baskets and one of the card bases. This jute twine is the perfect with for these mini berry baskets and does not add a lot of bulk to your cards.
This Hello sentiment From The Lil Inker is my favorite hello word die. All the sentiments were cut out from heavyweight cardstock and it cut perfectly. The strawberry stems were a combination of Lawn Fawn Freshly Cut Grass and Jalapeño inks.
