Noah's Ark Card

Hello all!  This card is another one that got lost in my picture folders...oops!  I hate it when that happens, but it is too cute not to share.  I made this last year for a couple who welcomed a set of twins to their sweet family.
The Noah's Ark svg was from ScrappyDew.  I popped the ark up with foam tape for extra dimension.  The patterned papers I used are from an old Debbie Mumm Noah's Ark paper stack that I had gotten at Joann's a long time ago.
Here is a closeup of those bears, complete with a tiny bow of Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twine for the boy and Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine for the girl.  You guessed it, the twins were a boy and a girl!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Nautical Hutch Card

Welcome to another Wednesday with a project using Victorine Originals stamps!  This week I am using their Nautical Hutch stamp and Tim Holtz Distress Inks to add color to it.  

I stamped the Nautical Hutch with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto watercolor paper.  I die cut around the image and kept the GMD stitched rectangle die around the watercolor paper and shaded the image with Tea Dye, Salty Ocean and Weathered Wood Distress Inks.
That way, when I removed the metal die, there was a pretty white border on the paper.
Next, I added a small amount of water into the palm of one hand and clapped above the image, making the water splatter all over the panel.  I dabbed off the excess water drops after a few seconds.
After the water was dried, I watered down a little white acrylic paint and flicked it onto the panel.  I dried it with my embossing gun.
Here is the finished card!  I added patterned paper from DCWV's Beach House stack.  The watercolor paper was adhered to the blue patterned paper with Tombow Xtreme permanent adhesive.  I used foam tape between the layers of patterned paper.
This picture lets you see the water reaction to the distress inks and the white paint splatters close up.
The only embellishment I added to the card was a sailor knot using Totally White and Totally Kraft Trendy Twines.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

You're So Sweet Teapot Card

Hello all!  I was lucky enough to be sent these patterned papers from a giveaway that was posted in the Word Art Wednesday Facebook group.  I had a lot of fun making the papers into a card!
 I had this G45 teapot stamp that I hadn't ever used, and it was a perfect match for the card!  I distressed the edges of the papers with antique linen distress ink.  For die cuts, I used GMD stitched rectangles and Cottage Cutz stitched ovals and the oval tag die from eBay.
Nautical Trendy Twine was added to the card as well as a finishing touch.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Sympathy Stitched Heart Card

Good Morning!  Today is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  I am sharing a card that's intended purpose is a Valentine's Day card, but I made it for a very different reason.
A close friend of mine had a Grandpa pass away and her favorite color is purple.  So I got out my Lilac Love stack from DCWV and the stitched heart card file from JGW Sewn From the Heart set and got to work on a sympathy card.
I used Grape Fizz Trendy Twine to lace all of the hearts onto the card base as well as the bow on the sentiment banner.  A few adhesive pearls were the only additional embellishments I added to this card.  For an assembly tutorial for this card, check out Jodi's blog!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Sail Your Ship Card

Happy Wednesday!  Today I am bringing you another creation using Victorine Originals stamps!  This time it is a masculine nautical themed encouragement card.  
I stamped the boat and sentiment from the Ship Set using Versafine Black Onyx ink.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to color the paper in.  The colors I used were Antique Linen for the sand, Salty Ocean for the sky (using a hand cut "cloud" piece as a mask) and Peacock Feathers for the water (using a torn piece of cardstock as a mask).  Black Soot distress Ink added dimension to the outside of the panel.
Both rectangular pieces were cut using GMD stitched rectangle dies.  The background paper is from DCWV's Beach House stack.  The front panel is popped up with foam tape.  I stamped the ship a second time, fussy cut it and popped up up with foam tape as well for extra dimension.
Midnight Trendy Twine was the only embellishment I used on the card.
Here is a peek at the Ship stamp set!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Elsa Happy Birthday Card

Earlier this month I had a niece celebrate a birthday.  I have so much fun creating for my nieces and making projects all frilly and sweet :)  My inspiration for this project was a 8.5"x11" Frozen paper pad by EK Success.
The cutting file for this card came from SVG Cuts' Five Minute Cards SVG kit.  The Elsa was part of the paper and I had the star cut her out.  I added some glitter to her dress to add a little extra sparkle.
For embellishments, I added two coordinating colors of crinkle seam binding and adhesive pearls.
Here is a peek at the inside of the card which I embellished with paper strips that were scraps from the other cuts.  Of course, I had to make a coordinating envelope to go with the card as well!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Scissors Tag Card

Good morning!  Today I am sharing another card that I created with the Sewing stamp set from Victorine Originals.  Click HERE to see the last card that I created with it.
I used papers from DCWV's Heirloom stack and 6x6 Paper Lace stack.  Dies are GMD stitched rectangles and scalloped stitched rectangles.  I stamped on the tag using Versafine Black Onyx ink and hilighted areas on it with a white gel pen.  The tan layer of the tag was distressed with Peacock Feathers and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.
I used crinkled seam binding and a little bit of Trendy Twine along with wooden buttons and sewing charms.

DCWV Tea For Two

Hello everyone!  What I am sharing with you today has been on my mind ever since I saw the sneak peek of DCWV's Blue China stack on their Facebook page before the papers were even released in Joann Fabrics stores!  I fell in LOVE with that stack.  So what did I create?  Tea for two, of course!
I really wanted to make a teapot, so I used a file from the Silhouette store and my Cameo with the Blue China papers.  I added a wooden knob on the top for fun.
The fun part is that the teapot opens to hold treats and because the Blue China stack is double sided, the inside of the teapot is as beautiful as the outside!
Next, I made two tea cups with saucers.  They were also files from the Silhouette store.  I downsized them to 75% so they would be a little more proportionate to the teapot.  The wooden spoons added a little bit of whimsy to them.
Last, but not least, I created a simple square card using patterned papers and image panel from the Blue China stack.  I used stitched rectangle dies, crinkled seam binding, pearls and mini Glue Dots to complete the card.
Here is a flip through video of the beautiful Blue China stack:
What are your plans for this stack?

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Midwest Spelling Bee Card

Happy Saturday!  Right now my oldest son is participating in the Midwest Spelling Bee in Omaha, NE.  It is pretty intimidating to think my 4th grader will be going up against amazing spellers (who are mostly older than him!) from across the state.  I created this card for him to wish him good luck.
 The 6x6 card base was made from DCWV's Grade School stack.  The circular spelling bee logo was traced and edited by me in my SCAL software.  It took a little time to get it just right, but I am so glad I took the time to do it!  I kept it simple with just the addition of a double bow of Bumblebee Trendy Twine and two homemade enamel dots.
So, wish us all luck!  It will be a great experience for the whole family :)  If you want to see the card I made for him earlier for our local spelling bee, you can check out THIS post.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Tag Birthday Card

Hello all!  I am back again with a birthday card that I created using DCWV's Confetti stack.  I seriously have made SO many projects with this stack!  It is way up there at the top of my favorite stacks list!

Sweet Thank You Cards

These cards were fun to make!  I was blessed to receive the Doodlebug Fun In The Sun 6x6 paper pad from one of my crafty sisters, Tanya.  I wanted to make both masculine and feminine styles out of it.
They both use the Hello Sweet stamp set from Pink and Main.  This one uses Limeade and Blue Berry Trendy Twines.
This one uses Limeade and Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twines.  Homemade enamel dots in the top right corner finished off both cards!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Bunny Make A Wish Card

Happy Tuesday!  I wanted to share this sweet spring card with you because I think everyone is ready for warmer weather.
The papers I used are from Echo Park's For the Record 2 6x6 stack.  The stamps are from Pink and Main's Dandelion Wishes set.  I colored the bunny with Prismacolor colored pencils.  It is hard to see in this picture, but I added a hint of yellow coloring in the background to bring out the yellow in the patterned papers.  The stitched oval dies are from Cottage Cutz.
I used Pink and Main's brand new Lacy Border die for the eyelet border.  I am totally LOVING that die set!
Did this card get you in the spring mood?  I sure hope so!

Have a wonderfully crafty day!

DCWV March Stackaholic Challenge

Welcome to another monthly Stackaholic Challenge from DCWV!  I really love how amazing the sketches have been lately.  They are so inspirational and you have all month long to create with them.  Here is what I created using our card sketch.
I used papers from DCWV's Copper Luxury stack and Whites Special Materials stack.  I used a scalloped stitched nested rectangle die, stitched rectangle die and lacey doily die, all from Gina Marie Designs.  A tutorial for the double pleated fold technique behind the fussy cut elements can be found HERE.  The measurements for the folded paper differ from the video because of the smaller size.  Here are the measurements for this card:
Cut paper 3" tall x 5" wide.
Score at .5, .75, 1.25, 1.5, 2, 2.25, 2.75, 3, 3.5, 3.75, 4.25, 4.5
Make pencil marks at 2.25" and 2.75 on the long sides and 1.25" and 1.75" on the short sides.
Continue with the video for the rest of the double pleated fold technique!
I added a double bow of Totally White Trendy Twine and a stamped sentiment to finish off the card.
Here are this month's sketches!  This is the card sketch I used.
