Mother Day Card

Good Morning!
Today I thought I would share with you the Mothers Day card I gave to my Mom.
It features a stamp from Hero Arts called Antique Rose, Letter Dies from Your Next Stamp and a sentiment from Close To My Heart.
I stamped and heat embossed the flower in white and then used my Zig Clean Color Markers to colour the Rose. I finished it off with some gold Distress Spray and then cut it our using a cross stitched rectangle die. Lastly, I mounted it on some cardstock and added the organza ribbon.

Thanks for looking!
Have a great day!

YNS Feature Day

Good Morning and Welcome to our May Feature Day!
This months the Design Team will be featuring the theme around:
MASH UP!

I decided to use both the Photo Booth set and Unicorns Rock for this card!
I stamped the dog with Black Olive Ink and then coloured it with Copic markers. Then I stamped the saying with Versafine ink and cut it out using the new Rounded Square Piercing Die. Lastly, I mounted everything on paper from the Geometric Paper Pad.

We are having Fun at YNS!

Welcome to a wonderful Friday at Your Next Stamp!
We have another  Colour and Sketch Challenge starting today!

Here is my card I made using the Punny Pineapple stamp. 
This is such a cute stamp set and fun to use!
I also used the Matching Dies and the Geometrics Paper Pad on my project.
I stamped the pineapple drink and lid and then coloured it using my Copic markers and then cutting them out using the matching dies.
Then I layered everything on top of cardstock and the Geometrics paper and added the sentiment.

Here are what the supplies look like!

May New Releases at Your Next Stamp!

  For my first card I used the stamp set called: Sea Friends
This is an adorable set featuring beautiful sea creatures!
I stamped the image with our Black Olive Ink and then coloured everything with Copic markers. Then I used the matching dies and cut out all the seals and heat embossed the saying.
Lastly, I layered everything on the new Seas the Day Paper which I had cut out using our new Rounded Square Dies with Paper piecing holes.

Here is my second card using a funny (or should I say Punny!) stamp set!!
Its called: Punny Pineapple

When I saw this set I was laughing.......the backstory is that my sister and I tease our Mom about her collection of Pineapples all the time!! SO now I have a PERFECT stamp set to make her cards with!

I went with a shaker card for this card and used two of the new Rounded Square dies to make a frame for the shaker. I used the Geometric Papers for the frame and then stamped and coloured the Pineapple with my Copics. The pineapple and sunglasses were then cut out using the matching dies.

Here's what I used!

Bingo Challenge

It is National Scrapbook Day and my hubby is out of town.......
SO I had some time today to do some crafts!

I am submitting to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Bingo Challenge
and my Bingo Card line is:
Twine, Spring Buttons, Critter

I cant tell you how much I love this new stamp set!! It is from a newly released kit and is called Magical Friends. I stamped the image using the KK black ink and coloured it with Copic markers. Then I cut out the image using a domed die, added the button and twine and stamped the sentiment using KK ink. Lastly, I  mounted it onto the textured cardstock.

Happy Scrapping or Cardmaking!!
Sue


Happy National Scrapbook Day!

Happy National Scrapbook Day Everyone!
Although I have been PACKING my scrapbooking stuff for a Girls weekend,
next weekend...today I was playing around with cardmaking!

I recently bought the new Magical Friends Kit from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and 
I have been dying to play with it!
The set came with a stamp set, textured cardstock and new mini ink cubes.

KK is having a Bingo Challenge today so I went with:
Glitter, Flowers, Die, Sentiment and Ink


I stamped the image out with the new KK ink, then die cut it and coloured it with my Copic markers. Then added some Nuvo glitter pen on top of the Copics, added the ribbon, flowers and sentiment.

Have a wonderful day and Happy Scrapping!
Sue
