Let's Chill Baby!

Hello Everyone!  It's time to CHILL with a  special offering from Power Poppy called Let's Chill!  This is a digi set with a fabby snowman with his special birdie friend, a sentiment and a cool snowflake background to play with!  I mean, how much fun is this!!  You'll find even more inspiration with this set on the Power Poppy Blog today!!  Haven't played with digi stamps before??  Make sure you pop by THIS post at Power Poppy central - I have this bookmarked for frequent check ins as it is soooooooo useful! Trust me, they aren't as scary as they seem!  ;-)

Before I get started on the makings of my card.....if you love this little snow dude....he's ON SALE for ONLY ONE DOLLAR!!!  Yep, $1, but only until Monday!  Have another set on your wish list, well you can purchase any of the clear or digi sets for 20% OFF!!!  WOOHOOOOOO!!!!  You don't even need a code, all the prices are adjusted in the store!  The Sale is on until Monday, but don't wait too long and miss out on your favourite!  :)

So, the first thing I did was print out the bits and pieces from the digi set! I used the snowflake background from Let's Chill and changed it to a soft blue and then added the snowman over the top.  I coloured the snowman with Copics (B0000, B000, N1, R32, R35, G82, G85, YR20, YR12, E81, E84, E87, E21, E23).  I've then printed out the background without the snowman for the back panel.  I've also printed the sentiment and put it aside.  I've printed all these on X-press It Blending Card, it's prefect for colouring with Copics and will also go through the inkjet printer with ease.  To construct it all, I've used a base of Soft Sky and layered with River Rock (ret. I think?) and topped with the snowflake panel that I printed earlier.  I've cut the snowman image with Majestic Labels 25 and matted it with Soft Sky cut with the same die set and glued it to the front of the card.  The sentiment has been cut out with a small oval punch and popped up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a few silver sequins to add a little sparkle!

Stamps - Let's Chill (Power Poppy)

Love You to the Moon and Back!

Hello Everyone!  There's something about this new Arriving Soon stamp set by JustRite Papercraft that I just love!  I don't know about everyone else, but I've told my kids that I loved them to the moon and back.....which eventually morphed into "I love you around the universe and back!"  :)  I also like that this set is fabulous for baby cards, but for older kids (or adults for that matter!) as well!  I have news about a HUGE SALE as well, so make sure you scroll down!!

I've used a base of Marina Mist card and layered with silver and some Secret Garden DP.  Next I've added a panel of white punched with a border punch and topped with more paper.    I've used the Tonic Royal Frame and Butterfly Insert Die to cut a piece of Marina Mist for my feature panel and then carefully snipped on each side so I could thread a piece of silver ribbon through.  I've stamped the image and sentiment from Arriving Soon in grey (for the moon) and black (sentiment) inks and then used blue Copics (B0000, B000, B00, B21, B91) to colour and airbrush around the moon for a soft sky effect.  To add a bit of sparkle, I've used a Clear Spica Pen on the Moon and surrounding stars and a touch of silver Kirarina Pen on the swirls.  To finish I've added a couple of silver stars to the frame.

Stamps - Arriving Soon (JustRite Papercraft)
Paper - Marina Mist, White, Silver, Kaisercraft Secret Garden DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copic Airbrush System, Copic Markers, Tonic Royal Frame and Butterfly Insert, Fiskars Border Punch, Star Die, Silver Ribbon

To the New Parents!

Hello Everyone!  The last card I made was for a baby boy, so today I thought I should put up one for a baby GIRL!  This is another new sweet baby set by JustRite Papercraft called We Are Having A Baby.  It's got a couple of adorable bear images and I chose this super cute one with balloons!

I've used a base of Kraft card and layered with white (pierced around the edge) and some pretty Maja Designs paper.  Down the side is a strip of kraft topped with a ribbon.  The next panel is white topped with matching Maja Designs paper.  I've stamped the bear from We Are Having A Baby in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  I've cut this out with Oval Nestabilities and while still in the die, I've lightly sponged some ink around the edge.  I've matted this with kraft cut with Floral Oval Nestabilities.  I've created the sentiment with two stamps (instead of parents you can choose other options!) from the same set, cut it out with Circle Nestabilities, once again sponging a little ink while still in the die and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a few pink buttons!

Stamps - We Are Having A Baby (JustRite Papercraft)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Kraft, White, Maja Designs

Celebrating Your Arrival!

Hello Everyone!  It's JustRite Papercraft Release Day!!!  This month we are doing something a little different and posting our favourite project of the release today instead of a set a day in the lead up!  This means that each of the team will be posting projects from different sets, but you won't know which until you pop by and visit!!  The girls have been making some GORGEOUS cards this month that you will *LOVE*.

Sooooooo.....what did I use today??  It's a set called Arriving Soon and I mean seriously, how CUTE is this set!!!  I've used a base of Marina Mist and added a layer of white topped with some Playtime DP. Next is a strip of Marina Mist topped with more Playtime DP.  Tucked under that layer is a circle of white that I've embossed with Spots and Dots embossing folder (to give a moon like appearance!).  I've stamped the rocket and flourishes from Arriving Soon in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  I've cut this out with Labels 28 and sponged the edges with Summer Sky ink while still in the die and attached as shown.  The sentiment, also from Arriving Soon, is done in matching ink, cut into a notched tag and secured with a button.  I've added a little bunting using JustRite's Buntings and Button dies to cut Marina Mist and Playtime DP and attached across the top.  I've added some piercing down the side and then finished with a couple of extra buttons.

Headphones Birthday

Hello Everyone!!  This week I was once again faced with the dreaded MAN CARD - this time for my music obsessed husband!  I help me cope with the dreaded Man Card, I reached for what is fast becoming one of my most used sets - Well Played by Power Poppy!!  Although this set seems aimed at more female cards, I'm finding that is just as useful for male cards too and perfect for TEENS!!!  Don't know about everyone else, but male teens are proving just as difficult or even MORE SO than the Man Card!  I have a male teen and a male pre-teen, so this is something I have to get used to and quick!!  :)

So, for this card I've used a base of cream and layered with brown topping with some chevron Authentique DP.  I've added a strip of more cream and some DP from the same paper pad.  Peeking out from underneath is a notched tag stamped with a sentiment from Go Wild (a very useful set with lots of Birthday Sentiments!).  I've stamped the headphones from Well Played in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (B00, B12, B14, C1, C3, C5) and then fussy cut it with scissors.  I've attached this to a circle of cream and adhered as shown.  To finish I've added a few buttons.

Stamps - Well Played, Go Wild (Power Poppy)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - Cream, Brown, Authentique Journey DP
Accessories - Copics, Circle Dies, Buttons, Glue, Scissors

That's all from me today, thanks for popping by and hope you are inspired to stamp!!

I've used a base of red, layered with cream and topped with two pieces of Home for the Holidays DP.  Across this is some ivory crochet lace, topped with red satin ribbon.  I've stamped this adorable tree in a cup image from Cozy Cupfuls in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (G24, G28, G94, G99, E50, E51, E53, E55, R00, R12, R20, R22, R24, R29, Y21, Y26, Y28, YR30, W1).  It's been cut out with Large Oval Nestabilities and matted with red cut with A2 Divine Eloquence and popped up on foam tape

I've Embellished with a Prima Poinsettia flower, a bling flourish (underneath the flower), added red pearls to the tree for the Christmas ornaments and then sprinkled a few rhinestones for good measure!!  :)  Nothing like a bit of Christmas BLING!!!
