Moose Birthday Card

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today with this moose birthday card.
I started with some cream cardstock and stamped the Moose stamp from Victorine Originals using Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I then lightly shaded it with Prisamcolor colored pencils.  I created a mask for the moose by stamping it on a post-it note and then fussy cutting around it.  I then stamped the VO Grove of Trees stamp with Vivid! Green ink.  I stamped it again in a different spot without re-inking to get the faded trees in the background.
Once I had the scene the way I liked it, I used a GMD Square Die to cut around the moose and a GMD stitched rectangle die around the whole stamped area.  I layered both die cut panels with a dark brown cardstock and popped up the moose panel with foam tape.  The sentiment is from the VO Elegant Sayings stamp set.

Remember to participate in our current Back to School challenge!  You can use the theme, images, and/or colors for inspiration!

Thank You From My Little Girl

Hello all from me, Jamie. :) Thanks for joining me on the blog today!

My five-year-old daughter broke both bones in her arm six weeks ago. I can't believe it's already been six weeks; it's been a crazy summer at our house! As soon as they found out, many wonderful friends and family members brought her a gift to help her feel better. We wanted to make thank you cards, and she loves to craft with me, but since it was her dominant arm, we were limited. We decided it would work well for her to paint a watercolor picture that we could use for the background of her cards.

I cut up her painting and matted it on 4.25"x5.5" colored cardstock (folded in half) for the card bases. Then I added the embellishments and the awesome Victorine Originals Stamps to make thank you cards for my daughter to send out.

For this first card, I used the Hugs And Kisses stamp. Even though it's not a traditional thank you sentiment, I figured it would be perfect for one of her aunts or her grandma. Then, I added some glittery pink washy tape with white shimmer trim over the top. I finished it off with some adhesive sparkles in shades of purple and pink.

For this card, I wanted to use the awesome Floral and Sayings stamp set. I had to play around with it to figure out the correct size of the flower to use, but then I added the Thank You sentiment from the same stamp set in the center. I used a couple of different colors of ink, layering them with my stamp positioning tool, to make it really pop off the card. I finished this card off with some coordinating brads and ricrac ribbon.

I absolutely love the how the colors ended up on this card background! I thought it looked like a perfect background, almost like a stained-glass window, for this beautiful flower stamp! I then added the Count Your Blessings stamp for the sentiment.

The lime green card base played well with the colors on the watercolor painting on this card. I simply took the thank you sentiment from the Floral and Sayings set and double matted it on white and aqua papers, then used the lime green background color to make a strip of color. Adding the sparkles off the corner of the sentiment gave it the extra flair it was missing.

I hated to cover up the flower my daughter painted for this card, so I just used the thank you sentiment from the floral and saying stamp set to run across the top of this card.

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!

Thank You For Everything....

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
DT Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
And it's my day to take over the blog!!! YAY for me... 🙌

I'm so excited to share a Lovely Thank you card.

I was really drawn to the Flower pot frame stamp... I think it's
because you can color it, along with add anything to the center.
I wanted a sentiment in the center of mine... So I went
with a couple of different stamps - I'm using the small "Thank You" Stamp
along with the "Happy Everything" Stamp -- What I did was cut my
Happy Everything Stamp in half.. so I could just use the "Everything" Word.
I love that most about any stamp.... You can cut them and use them
where you need them on a project! My Card design is Mojo Monday Sketch #479.

Dance In The Rain Card

Hello all!  Happy Wednesday.  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today!  I created a card that is a little different from what I usually make to share with you.  This one has a lot of watercoloring on it.
I started out by stamping the Victorine Originals Dance in the Rain stamp with Versafine Onyx Black Ink onto Canson XL Watercolor paper and then heat embossing it with WOW Clear embossing Powder.  I added the green grass and the rainy gray background with watercolors.  I then used Stampabilities Slate Gray ink and the Victorine Originals Backgrounds set to add little flecks on the background paper.  I added a pair of die cut rain boots by the sentiment.
For the top of the card, I cut three clouds using GMD stitched cloud border dies and papers from the DCWV Silver Leaf stack.  I wrapped Bumblebee Trendy Twine around them for a little pop of color and then adhered them to the background that I had created.

Remember, we have our Ahoy Landlubbers challenge going on right now!  Here is the inspiration photo for it.  You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.
