Feel Better – Create a Smile Stamps Handmade Card

Hey everyone and welcome back to my creative space! I’m back with a brand new card showcasing the adorable “Doctor’s Helpers” stamp set, along with the All about you set from Create a Smile Stamps store.
I love using the bigger words from the sentiment sets and I wanted to create a cute one using again the YOU word.
* I die cut a white panel using the largest stitched rectangle from the Cool Cuts Double Stitched Rectangles.
* I ink blended a corner on the panel with a light blue ink and stamped some of the smaller stamps from the Doctor’s Helpers set using the same ink pad.
* Next I stamped the You word from the All about you set and the cute mouse from the Doctor’s Helpers set, I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut them with a sharp pair of scissors.
* I glued the You word and mounted the mouse on the panel.
* On a black strip of cardstock I white embossed the second part of the sentiment from the Bad Day set and mounted it on the card.
* I glued a few clear sequins and my card was done.

Hello Summer – Sizzix Handmade Card

 

Hi crafty friends! Welcome back to my happy place! I hope you’re having a wonderful and creative day.
For today I have a new card made with the awesome die set from the new release from Sizzix UK, called Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 17PK – Summer Time, designed by My Life Handmade and the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 5PK – Stacked Baroque, designed by Tim Holtz!
I started my card by preparing a white card base and a white panel with the same size as the base. 
Then I created a watercolor background using vibrant and summery colors and adhered it to the card base.

 

Next I die cut a window in the center of the white panel using one of the baroque dies, added an acetate piece and foam tape behind the panel, creating the window for the shaker. I die cut two pairs of flip flops and glued them behind the window, peeking from the margins.
I filled the shaker with a beautiful sequins mix and glued it to the card base. 
Next I die cut a frame from yellow cardstock using two of the baroque dies and framed the shaker window. 
I added a third pair of flip flops on the card and I die cut the hello word die included in the Summer Time die set. 
I also white embossed the summer word on a black strip of cardstock to complete the sentiment for my card and my summery project was done.

Mix It Up Challenge #43 – SugarPea Designs Handmade Card

Hi crafty friends! Welcome back to my blog! 
Hope you’re having a wonderful day.
For today I have a new card showcasing quite a few goodies from SugarPea Designs: Pretty Peonies, Simply Fabulous, SugarCut – Fabulous, Postage Stamp Cover Plate and the SugarCut – Card Front Element Builder.
I made this card for the current challenge over at SugarPea Designs blog. This month is Mix It Up Challenge #43 and below you can see the sketch and/or the inspiration photo:
This time I chose the inspiration photo for my card and I started by preparing a white card base. 
On a watercolor panel I stamped the big peony from the Pretty Peonies set using different Distress Ink pads. 
I stamped the flower all over the panel and sprayed over them with a mini sprayer filled with clean water and a pinch of Perfect Pearls. The colors started spreading and I love the artsy look on them.
I die cut the panel using the scalloped rectangle die from the SugarCut – Card Front Element Builder set and mounted it onto the card base using craft foam.
Next I die cut a heart from vellum using the die from the Postage Stamp Cover Plate set and glued it to the panel. Then I added the fabulous die cut from gold cardstock using the SugarCut – Fabulous die and I completed the sentiment using stamps from the Simply Fabulous gold embossed on white strips of cardstocks.

Thinking of You – Create a Smile Stamps Handmade Card

 

Hi everyone and welcome back to my creative space! Raluca here with a brand new card showcasing quite a few of the amazing products that you can find in the Create a Smile store.
I had some images colored in my stash and I looked through them and this idea for my card just popped in my mind.
 
* I die cut a white panel using the largest stitched rectangle die and run it through my Big shot using a silicone mat and the Heart Rays stencil. 
* I mounted it on a card base slightly bigger than the panel using craft foam.
* Next I mounted the flowers and the YOU word in the center of the card using foam tape.

 

* To finish the saying for the card I white embossed a sentiment from the All about you set on a black strip of cardstock.
* I mounted the strip with the sentiment on the card, glued a few gold sequins and my card was done.
I must confess that I love how it turned out! The colors go so well together and the design is iso pretty! 
I hope you’ll give this look a try!

Monster Mash – LDRS Creative Handmade Card

Hello everyone and welcome back to my creative space!
I’m back with a brand new CAS & colorful card using some of the new products that you can order from the LDRS Creative store!
For today’s card I used the new and fun Monster Mash stamp & dies set, the Clipped Together die set and the awesome Raven Black Ink Pad.
 
I started my card by die cutting a white panel using the pretty rectangle die with stars on the borders from the Clipped Together die set. Using the partially die cutting technique I was able to obtain a slightly smaller panel perfect for my idea.
Next I stamped a fun sentiment from the Monster Mash set in the upper center part of the panel using the Raven Black Ink Pad.
I stamped the adorable monsters multiple times, colored them with alcohol markers and die cutting them using the coordinating dies from the Monster Mash set.
I adhered them on the card using foam tape and glued on each monster one googly eye to add even more cuteness to them. 
I mounted the panel on a white card base, slightly bigger than the panel, using foam tape, glued a few clear sequins and my card was done.
So, what do you think? It’s such an easy card to make and I had so much fun creating it!
That’s all from me today!
