Fun Stampers Journey - Stamp of the Month Kit June 2019

Good morning crafty friends!  Hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of summer!  Today, I'm sharing a card using the June Fun Stampers Journey stamp of the month kit.  I loved the theme for this month...DONUTS!  I immediately thought of my Dad, he loves donuts and the newspaper on Sunday mornings.  So...I am going to give him this card on Sunday for Father's Day. 








This card was a lot of fun to make.  I stamped a half dozen donuts on some smooth white cardstock, and then colored them with easy Copic coloring.  I used a white pen to add some icing to the chocolate ones. :)








I used the coordinating dies to cut out my donuts  and my sentiment "Sprinkled with Love"






I wanted to make the card look like a box of donuts, so I took a piece of kraft colored cardstock, and made it into a card.  I used the rectangle from my favorite must have set Hemstitch rectangles from Spellbinders, and cut a window in the card.  Then I cut out a rectangle of tissue paper to put my donuts on.  (just like they do at the bakery!) I adhered the tissue paper, and then popped the donuts on using some foam tape to give them dimension.  I closed my "donut box" with a little adhesive, put the sentiment on and then mounted the whole thing onto another A2 sized card. 


Instant, calorie free, fun donuts!  I love it!

Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Kit for June 2019


Good morning friends!   Today I'm bringing you a fun floral card.  I used this month's Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil kit or this month.



This month the Hot foil kit is FLOWERS!  There’s are so many possibilities with this kit...and it includes the matching outline dies.



For this Birthday card, I used three colors of foil.  The pink foil is included with the kit, and I used gold and green foil from my stash.


You can buy hot glimmer foil in a ton of pretty colors and patterns...if you want to see what is all available, check them out HERE.

I also colored my flowers with something new to me.  I recently got the Jane Davenport pastels...they are so easy to blend.  I love the softness of the only card, and they are a nice change from blending inks.

New Artomology from Jane Davenport


Hi there crafty friends!

Today I have something a bit different for you.  Recently Spellbinders asked me to play with some Glimmer Plates from the NEW Artomology collection from Jane Davenport.

You can see the entire collection HERE.

This collection is geared towards the Mixed Media artist, but is so versatile, you can play with it on cards, scrapbooking,  whatever.  Its so fun and playful, I really went outside my comfort zone with this.

I was delighted to see that there are Hot Glimmer Foil plates (oh, how I love the foil!) in this collection. 

I also took the opportunity to play with some of the fantastic coloring mediums from Jane’s Making Faces collection.  (you can see them all HERE)

 




For this card, I used the beautiful Aura Glimmer Foil on the Masquerade Hot foil plate.  The plate comes with a coordinating die and makes it so easy to cut out your foiled piece.

I also used the Making Faces Palette Pastel Set from Jane in two ways.  I pulled out the swatch card from the palette and colored her using the pastels.  I added the mask, and some additional jewels to dress up my girl. 

 


This whole collection is so beautiful and unique. 
If you are interested in any of the items I've shown you today, you can see them linked below. (Affiliate links may be used at no charge to you.  Thank you so much for your support!)

Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Kit for May 2019

Good morning friends!   Today I'm bringing you the Anniversary card I gave my hubby this past weekend.  I used this month's Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil kit for this month.  


Last month, I used the Glimmer Hot Foil system on an alcohol ink panel.  This month, I used it over washi tape...*YES* WASHI TAPE!  This opens up a lot of possibilities.  It foils beautifully every time!


I have been collecting curating beautiful Washi tapes for a long time.  I am always happy to find a new use for it!


For my card, I covered a white card stock panel with washi tape, and then used the Glimmer Hot Foil kit plate right on top.  I think it worked wonderfully!

I also foiled my envelope!  TIP:  Do not put the glue flap on the hot foil plate as it may cause the glue to melt. 

The kit this month is really pretty, it includes a main large frame Hot foil plate, and two accent plates.  There is also a die to cut out the center of the frame, as well as a die that cuts out the accent pieces.  The kit includes a roll of Glimmer gold foil.

I made this card by stamping the beautiful girl image on smooth white card stock, using a Copic friendly black ink.  I colored her with a variety of Copic markers and then colored the entire background .  I then used some Copic blending fluid to make the background look mottled.  I used a heat gun to set the entire thing.

The pretty circle border is from one of my MUST HAVE die sets (I use these dies all.the.time!)  These are called Hemstitch circles.  I have all the sets...they are awesome.  You can see them HERE.

Pretty Peonies - Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!  Today I am so honored to be part of the Pretty Pink Posh April release blog hop!
So grab a cuppa something and hop along with me!  Be sure to read all the way to the end so you don't miss out on the GIVEAWAY!
You should have arrived here from the fabulous Eloise Blue .  If you are starting here, I have an entire list below.




The new release features some great stamp sets for Mother's Day, Father's Day, Graduation and really, any day!  It also introduces a new product for Pretty Pink Posh....STENCILS!!!


You can see the whole new release HERE.


Let's get started, shall we?








This card features the gorgeous new set Peonies, from Pretty Pink Posh.  This set features several beautiful blooms that are perfect for coloring!


I started out by stamping all the flowers and leaves on Neenah Solar White 80lb super smooth card stock.  I used Memento Black Ink. I colored all the images using Copic markers, and cut them out using the Peonies coordinating dies, and set them aside. 


I took another piece of smooth cardstock and laid the new Leaves stencil over it and blended it with a soft green dye ink.




I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched diamonds die set to make a shaker window in my card panel.  I cut a piece of clear acetate and sealed up the window, and then added some Sparkling Clear sequins to my shaker.  I used foam tape around the edge to make the shaker.  I mounted the entire piece on an A2 sized card base.  I arranged all my flowers around this shaker window.  Lastly, I heat embossed the greeting from the Pretty Pink Posh Everyday greetings set, cut it out and mounted it on my card.






My second card on this hop uses the new Pretty Pink Posh Mother's Day set, the Leaves stencil, and a beautiful new Scripty Mother's Day Die.


This card was made much like the first one, as I did some simple, easy Copic coloring.  I used the Pretty Pink Posh Window Frames die set for my shaker and I filled it with the beautiful, new Carribean jewels!  (I squealed in delight when I saw these...GORGEOUS and in my favorite color!!)






The scripty Happy Mother's Day die adds such a punch to the card!  I hope my Mom likes this card! (Mom, if you're reading this, pretend you didn't see it. ;))

Spellbinders Happy + Gilded Age and a Giveaway!

Hi there friends!  Today I'm part of a blog hop introducing two new collections from Spellbinders!  Both collections feature some awesome dies and also Glimmer Plates!


You should have arrived here from the fantastic Laura Volpes blog.  If you are starting here, the whole blog hop will be listed below.  Be sure to read to the end to enter the giveway!

Here are the new Collections:

Happy by Sharyn Sowell

The Gilded Age by Becca Feeken

New Foil colors for Glimmer Hot Foil

My first card features products from both collections.



I used the Celebrate with Cake die set and made a beautiful three layer cake complete with flowers.  I also used the Gilded Nested Hot Foil set from the Gilded Age collection.  These hot foil plates also have a companion die set (sold separately) The banner came from the Happy It's Your Day die set.



These next two cards feature a technique that I have wanted to try, but never have.  I used hot foil on my alcohol ink backgrounds, and OH MY....the results are stunning. I admit, I wasn't sure if putting the alcohol ink background on a hot foil plate was a good idea.  But it worked awesomely!



This card features the lovely Oh Happy Day Glimmer hot foil plate.  I used the new Aura foil...and that is my new favorite!  It shimmers and shines, and picks up color from everywhere.  Every time I photographed it, the color changed...so cool!




This last card features an absolutely stunning Gilded Vines Glimmer Hot Foil plate from Becca Feeken's Gilded Age collection.  I used the black foil on my alcohol inked background....and as you can see, the card has maximum impact!


Giveaway:
To celebrate this release, we are giving away a $50 gift certificate to 3 lucky blog readers – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop.
