Rosie Posies

Hello, Crafty Friends!!
 I have another project for you all today! This time I have this lovely rosie posie card using...

Fleurette Blooms' Posies stamp set.

Image result for fleurette bloom designs posies

I stamped my image onto mixed media paper with black archival ink and colored with distress markers then blended out with a water brush.

Once completely dried, I cut each flower out by hand.

I die cut leaves from old music sheets. Then shaded them with Distress Inks and added details with Distress Markers.

I die cut a honeycomb out of chipboard using honeycomb die. I mixed white gesso, microbeads, and texture powder together and applied over the entire honeycomb. 

I allowed the mixture to completely dry then colored with distress stain then dry brushed acrylic paint.

Using my Xyron Creative Station Lite, I attached a 4.25"x 5.5" piece of burlap onto a standard A2 sized card made from cream colored cardstock. Then layered a 4"x 5.25" mat on top.

I used a bit of glossy accents as a glue and attached to my card front. The laid down my leaves before attaching my posies over top with more glossy accents.

To fish my card, I die cut the word hello from brown cardstock and attached at the bottom of the card.

And here is my finished card..

Such a simple yet beautiful card.

I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial for today!

Until next time...
Happy Crafting!!

Hey there, crafters! Cheryl here.
I have always this turtle image and haven't ever played with it. So glad I did!
I started by stamping a full background of turtles onto watercolor cardstock. I then pulled out my Zig Clean Color markers and set about coloring the images. I then took blue and created some water background. I also stamped some of the bubbles and added Glossy Accents over the tops to make it look like real water.

I stamped one other turtle and fussy cut it out. I attached it to the card front directly over top of another one, using an Action Wobbler. So fun to see it shake about! And how much cuter it is with those google eyes! 

I stamped out a sentiment onto black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I popped it up with foam tape. Grabbed some sequins from my stash and glued them on using Ranger Multi Matte adhesive. I also added a few Nuvo enamel dots. 

This card was fun to color and to put together. Love this turtle! Hope you got a bit of inspiration. Get out your toys and play!

Happy Crafting!

Our Newest Sequin Mixes

Here is what I've created with Our NEW Releases...

Fleurette here  :)  thank you so much for joining us on our Bloomin Spring hop!
I'm thinking spring as you can tell by our new stamps :)

The first card I created to share with you is very soft and pretty.
I used our new "Rain Or Shine" stamp set along with our new Digi Paper Pack "Pansies".

Card Tutorial

I printed the Pansies Digi Papers on a laser printer, inked them and then ran the pink center piece through my foiling machine, to give it the gold glimmer. 
I cut the card pieces using this FREE for a limited time SVG that I created and cut it on my 
Cricut Explore.  

#clearstamps #cricutexplore #stamping #cardmaking
I stamped the images on watercolor paper and colored the adorable vintage inspired paper doll, hat and bunny with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  I used colored pencils for some of the smaller details and shadows, then fussy cut them out.  To give it that finishing touch, I added glitter with my Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen.   I always LOVE to add SPARKLE!!!  I then embossed the "Smile" sentiment on vellum and added just a few gold sequins from our  "Purple Rain" sequin mix. 

Here is a close up so you can see all that glitter :) 

For my second card, I created this elegant golden shimmery card using our new "Pansies" stamp set.

I embossed the sentiment in gold, and stamped the Pansies on black card stock using white embossing powder. I colored the flowers in first with a white colored (wax based) pencil, then added the purple colors on top of that. I used a layer of velum over a pretty gold patterned paper to give it that elegant touch.  Then I fussy cut all the flowers out and attached them with some dimensional foam tape.  For the finishing touch I added some "Purple Rain" sequins and of course added glitter to the flowers with my glitter pen.

Now hop on over to the next blog for more crafty fun! :)

We hope you are inspired by what you see and enjoy your time with us!

Thinking of You... Card with Clear Stamps

Thinking of you...

Hey all! Welcome I'm here today showcasing a stamp set from Fleurette's latest release. Love this floral image! So nice for coloring in any medium of your choice.

 I used my Zig markers to color this image. I have good days and bad days with those, lol, and this happened to turn out pretty decent. I fussy cut the image out and used foam dimensionals to lift it off the card front. I used a die I have to cut the frame in the front and added acetate to make a shaker card. I cut another piece out of gold shiny cardstock. Filled it with seed beads and added the back piece of cardstock. 
I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Black Onyx ink and snipped a banner end. Added it to the front of the shaker. This whole piece was then added to the card front and some sequins scattered around to finish it off.
Here's where to get your stamping supplies.

What's Shakin'... Card with Three Little Pigs Clear Stamps

Hey guys, thanks for coming by! I have a card today featuring a new stamp release by FBStamps.
Hope you enjoy! Let's get to it.

I started out by stamping several of the pigs in the stamp set and used my Pearless Watercolors. I then fussy cut right along the stamp line. Didn't want any white showing.
I then chose patterned papers I wanted to use from a Doodlebug paper pad. I found coordinating color cardstock from my stash and used some edge dies to fancy it up.

I glued down the first two piggy butts, lol, flat to the paper. I then used an Action Wobbler under the last piggy. So fun to see him shakin' his bacon, lol!

I layered up all the papers and added it to an A2 card base. Added some Nuvo enamel dots and some sequins.

So there you go, easy really! You really need to go check out the new release over at FBStamps. Such cute stuff. And while you're there, look at all the past releases too.

Here's your shopping list.

Ok, so get out your supplies and have some fun crafting!

When Pigs Fly Card - Flying Piggy by Ilda

It's true, it's true, pigs are flying!!!
Well at least in my latest card 😏

Not sure if you guys can tell, but check out the shiny little foiled pigs 🐷 in the the background (see next picture). I used Fleurette's coordinating "Three Little Pigs" Digital Foil It Paper Pack and the speech bubble is also a Foil It. Love how she has made these digi papers coordinate with the her Stamps. Just makes things a lot simpler when you are creating, takes out the guess work out of choosing papers! And using the "Foil Its" was fairly easy too, all you need is a laminator or a Minc, and if you don't have one of those... I've heard, an iron works too to transfer on the foil  πŸ˜‰

 How cute is this little flying pig?

If you love him I bet you will love the "Three Little Pigs" stamp set from Fleurette Bloom's latest release, and for a limited time you can get the Pigs and Posies Bundle Pack Special - FREE Shipping with the coupon code piggiesposies

For those of you that like watching the card making process, this is for you! Links to all the supplies I used will be listed in the video description.

Happy Valentines Day...

 Valentines Day is coming!

Hello everyone, I have a Valentine post for you today. I have recently fallen in love all over again with foiling, lol. I've always loved it but forgot about my poor Minc machine. Well, it's been up and running once again. Today's project has some foiling and some electronic die cutting.

So, for the elements on this card, I printed some digital paper with my Brother laser printer. Foiling will only work with the toner in this type of printer. An ink jet will not work. Fleurette has recently added "Foil Its" to her store already printed in toner ink and all you have to do is have the foil and a machine to run it through. No printer needed!!! Check those out, for sure.

It is so hard to capture high shine images, but the red heart has been foiled with red Deco foil. Heidi Swapp foils are good too. I first cut the heart out using my Silhouette Cameo and then ran it through my Minc with the red foil. The gold heart is cut from gold metallic paper in my stash.
I used foam tape to adhere the hearts/arrow element to the scallop shape. I then added that, along with the sentiment, to a piece of red card stock matted with black.

Sorry for the reflection but the red and gold are so shiny! Beautiful in real life. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I scattered around a few gold, black and red, sequins and glitter dots to finish off the card front. This entire piece was put on to a white A2 sized card base.

Here is where I got the parts and pieces for this project.

I hope you get a bit of inspiration from my post today. If you have never done any foiling, maybe you'd want to try with some of the Foil Its first. If you love it like I do, you'll wanna foil everything. I picked up my Brother laser printer at a local office store for under 75.00. The one thing with laser printers is the ink cartridge lasts a long time! And you don't get the clogging of the ink jets that you can with an ink jet printer...which they say you need to print something often to keep them open. If you don't, you'll be paying for a cleaning or worse, replace your print head...if it can be replaced! Ask me how I know!!! In fact, I recently had to replace a almost new ink jet printer (clogged jets too costly to repair) with a Brother color laser printer. In case you want to check it out, I got mine from Amazon.

Here's a link to a past Valentine project in case your interested.

 Valentine Party.

So...pull out your crafting supplies and have some fun. There's still time to whip up some Valentine goodies. Your loved ones will think you're a rock star!

Hugs & Kisses

Hello Crafty Friends... Mitsyana Wright here!!
And I'm back again with Fleurette Bloom Stamps... whom has just asked me to be a part of their Design Team!!! Eeeeeek!! How cool is that??!!

I don't know about you but hearing great news like that always make me feel loved! And I've been in a very lovey-dovey type of mood lately... lots of warm fuzzies!

And what says love better than red roses...I think roses are very romantic, by the way!

 So, I made this simple, elegant, and "tres romantique" card using Fleurettes new Roses in Bloom set.

I started by stamping my image a total of three times. 

Next, I colored them  and I added highlights using a white gel pen.

I cut out two of the images by hand, and the third I die cut using a stitched circle die. Then embossed the die cut with an embossing folder.

I added foam adhesive to the back of the flowers and layered them onto each other for more dimension and removed one of the flowers for the very top layer.

I used this light green paper  and created a A7 (5"x 7" folded) sized card base.

Then die cut printed text paper  using a stitched rectangle die. 
I used a tape runner to attach my rectangle to the front of my card base.

I used the same circle die from earlier and traced around the outside diameter of the die as a template. Then hand cut out the traced shape and layered it under my paper pieced roses.

I added foam tape under the circle for more dimension then adhered it to my card front.

I die cut a pennant and the letters XOXO and adhered the little flag to the card, slightly tucking it behind the circle.

Lastly, I added a heart shaped cabochon using a clear quick dry adhesive.

You can really see all the added dimension with all the different layers (above picture).

Finished Card

I really hope you enjoyed my project for today and that it filled you with 
a bit of love, a little romance, or even some heartfelt inspiration.

Wishing you lots of hugs, kisses, & Valentine Wishes,
