Doiuble Trouble 82 - Stencilled Floral Card

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge #82!

The small graphic is below - for complete details, please visit the Double Trouble Challenge Blog.


This week, the main expectation is to include some sort of florals on your project. I have a few sets of layering stencils and the one I used here is one of my favourites. There are 5 stencils in total and they allow layers of colours to be added in steps. I used the colour scheme provided by our challenge partner, Make the Cards. 

The flowers and leaves were all inked using the stencil. I die cut that piece using a stitched rectangle die and then mounted it on Raspberry cardstock and then onto the card base. The sentiment was die cut using vellum for the bottom layer and pink glitter paper for the letters. I coloured a few white gems using a turquoise marker and also brushed the center flower sections with the Clear Shimmer Brush. 


Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret the expectations for this challenge.

Heart 2 Heart - Cherry Blossoms

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge! 

The theme this week is Old and New. You are to use some OLD products and some NEW products on your project. 

My NEW item is the Cherry Blossoms stamp set. It is such a pretty set of flowers and I used the largest branch on my card. The OLD is the paper - it is from the first Mix-In paper pack a couple of years ago. The soft pink patterns along with the black patterns made a great backdrop for the cherry blossoms. 

I stamped the floral image and only coloured along the shaded areas. I went back and added some darker pink with the Flamingo Shimmer Brush. The card pattern is from Make It From Your Herat - Vol.4. I stamped a sweet little sentiment at the bottom so as not to distract from the flowers. 


Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you interpret this week's challenge. 

You have until the end of April to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create!

Butterfly Acetate Card

I recently saw this technique in a Facebook group and I cannot recall who designed it... otherwise, I would definitely provide credit to that individual. 

This card has an acetate insert that allows it to appear like the butterflies are almost floating. It's such a neat technique! I coloured the butterflies and brushed them with the Clear Shimmer Brush to add some shimmer.

Hoping Your Heart is Happy

This is one of those cards just for fun! 

I have some layering stencils and absolutely love them - they honestly make it appear like I can colour, which is not a strength for me. This image was created using a series of 5 stencils and 5 colours of Distress Oxide inks. The last flower layer was inked and then I added some Moondust Glitter Gel on top to add some shine. The image was die cut and some silver embellishing thread was attached around the edges. The sentiment was stamped in two of the same colours used on the flowers and mounted on the same blue background paper. I embossed the black background and offset it from the blue background piece. A few glitter gems were added to finish off the card. 

Products used are Close To My Heart unless otherwise indicated: 

Paper: White Cardstock, Black Cardstock, Blue Paper from scrapbook com, Neenah Solar White Cardstock

Stamptacular Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamptacular Blog Hop! So many stamps and thin cuts are on sale this month and several Makers will show you a selection of those items in this blog hop. 

You should have arrived here from Michelle Stewart's blog. If you get lost, a complete list of participants can be found on Melinda Everitt's blog

I haven't used a lot of the background stamps lately but this was a good reason to pull out one of them! The Floral Details and Background stamp s a beautiful stamp that provides a card front. I wanted to do something a little different so I turned it into a full front shaker card. 

The front is a complete shaker that sits over the stamped image. It opens on its own to reveal what can be seen through the acetate. I stamped some images on circles to match up with the inside of the card. A circle on the back of the acetate was required to cover the adhesive. The shaker component was filled with Silver Loose Sequins and Iridescent Flower Confetti. 

The inside has the floral image stamped and coloured with markers. I added some Silver Stickles to parts of the flowers and I brushed all the flower lines with the Clear Shimmer Brush. 



Since a spot was needed to write a message, I also decorated the back by stamping and colouring small images and drawing lines to join them together. 

I hope you enjoyed my card. 

The next blog on this hop is Haley Dyer's blog. I'm sure she has something terrific to show you!

AH 416 - Hello Sweet Friend



Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 416!

The sketch is shown in horizontal format and I decided to create my card in that same format. 

I started by using a three part layering stencil to create the flowers and leaves. I love how the mix of colours is only applied to specific areas with the stencils. The flowers and leaves were then die cut, along with the word "hello". I stamped "sweet friend" and mounted it on Peacock cardstock to match the rest of the paper. The papers were cut to be the same height and a piece of Coral Shimmer Trim was added in the center. The sentiment and flowers were mounted on foam tape and a few Peach coloured gems were added to the top section. The flowers and some leaves were also brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush. 


Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above. 

You have until Sunday evening to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create!

Cherry Blossoms Note...

A friend of mine posted a sketch on her FB page and I decided to participate. 

The sketch was very specific regarding sizes and placement of shapes. I am used to taking liberties with sketches but that wasn't an option with this one. 

I wanted to use a bright colour combined with woodgrain. The floral image was stamped and coloured and the background paper was selected to match the marker colour. That was embossed and mounted on a black background as the other mats were also black. I stamped a sentiment on vellum and embossed it with white powder. A few black enamel dots were added and I brushed the flowers with the Clear Shimmer Brush.

CD 439 - Sock is Sliding Off...

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 439!

This week, it is a limited colour palette but I love these challenges as they really make me think!

I began by stamping the leaf outlines using my stamp press. I wanted them all around the center section. I went back and stamped the solid image using Carolina ink and a touch of Bluebird on the ends of the leaves. The sentiment was stamped in black in the centre. I turned this into a shaker and added some clear sequins as well as blue ones in the same shades as the inks.  

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the colour palette shown above.

TSOT - Birthday Shaker

Welcome to Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge 501!

The theme in addition to the sketch is birthday. 

I began by creating an ombre background using Distress Oxide inks. A panel of blue cardstock was added diagonally across the background piece. I chose a bright yellow background for the shaker and stamped several birthday related images on that piece. I coloured them with various blue markers (the yellow background often makes the blue colour turn a greenish shade). I added some sequins and then placed the sentiment on the front of the shaker.

H2H - What's Your Angle?

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge!

It's all about angles this week - specifically diagonal angles. 

I began by creating a mixed coloured background using Distress Oxide inks. I placed a circle stencil on top of that and brushed over it with Moon Dust Glitter Gel, giving it a glittery effect. Once that piece was dry, I created a shaker on top and added some coordinating cardstock diagonal stripes. The finally touch was to add the Hugs sentiment. 

Come and join us at H2H and show us how you interpret the angle challenge.

Double Trouble 81 - Mountain Scene

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 81!

The small graphic for this challenge is below - please visit the Double Trouble Challenge Blog for detailed information.

I love spending time in the outdoors, paddling a canoe or walking through the forest. This card represents that concept fairly well. 

I started by creating clouds using a stencil that I made on my Cricut. The mountains were stamped, followed by the trees and then the lake. I stamped one of my favourite sayings at the top of the card. No fuss - just like the outdoors :) 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret this challenge.

Wreath Builder Cards

The Wreath Builder stamp set has so many possibilities! I recently watched a video by Gina Krupsky (owner of Gin K. Designs) and she showed how to create an S pattern using the Wreath Builder stamps (there are a few in the series). I loved the idea and decided to create two cards in that style. 

Each of these wreaths was created using the 3 3/4" template. They will always be square when finished. They were cut diagonally and mounted on a 4" x 5 1/2" black base. A strip of white cardstock was placed between the triangles. The sentiment was stamped and die cut using circle dies. The wreath piece on the first card was also die cut using a stitched square die. I added some Stickles and Liquid Pearls to the first card and coloured some clear sparkles for the second card.

Paper: White Daisy Cardstock, Black Cardstock, Raspberry Cardstock, Neenah Solar White Cardstock

April SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the April SOTM Blog Hop.

This month, the featured stamp set is Scandinavian Folk Art Greetings. The images in that set are shown below. 

You should have arrived here from Haley Dyer's blog. If you get lost, a list of all participants can be found on Melinda Everitt's blog

I really struggled with what to do with the images in this set. I finally settled on using the single flower image and taking part of the window image to use in the square. The colour scheme is Peacock, Lagoon and Sundance. I used the Multi-Square Window Thin Cut to create the Lagoon square and I spattered the sentiment section with the Sundance Shimmer Brush. The card front was mounted on a piece of patterned paper from the Mix-In paper pack. Finally, a few gold sequins were added and the centres of the flowers were coloured. 

The next stop on this blog hop is Becca Whitham's blog. I am sure she has something awesome to share with you!

Sunshine and Rainbows

Rainbow cards are always so fun to create and I have posted quite a few of them lately. 

The sunshine and rainbows die cut on the front of my card is from Scrapbook and Cards Today - they provide several free downloadable files for use with various cutting machines. I resized the image and used my Cricut to cut it from white cardstock, 

The background was created using a variety of Distress Oxide inks. I just blended one into the next to create a rainbow effect - perfect for the die cut words. 

Visit Scrapbook and Cards Today - there is a ton of information, tutorials, free cut files, etc. You won't be disappointed!

Double Trouble 80 - Something, Anything, Everything - plus Atlantic Hearts 414

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 80 and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 414! 

It’s the 5th Monday in the month so it’s is a one week challenge at Double Trouble. Thing 1 is anything goes but if you want to play along with Things 2 and 3, the details are below. A full description of the expectations can be found on the Double Trouble Challenge Blog

The sketch for Atlantic Hearts is shown below. 

I stayed true to the sketch as I loved the idea of a window. Thing 3 at Double Trouble is to add a stamped or die cut coloured image and those would be the flowers. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut several of the cherry blossoms to use in the planter. 

When I created this, my computer was in for service and I could not get my Cricut to work with my other devices. Consequently, I drew and hand cut the window box. The sentiment was stamped in 1st and 2nd generation with Peacock ink. I inked the edges of the wood grain paper, brushed the flowers with the Clear Shimmer Brush and added a few sparkles around the card. 



Come and join us at both Double Trouble and Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the expectations for each challenge. 

You have until Sunday evening to link up your projects.

Pink Chevron Card

I have been playing more with the pull-apart stamps from Pink Fresh Studio. This is another card using the chevron stamp.

I inked every second section with light and dark pink Distress Oxide inks. It provided a soft touch for the background. The flowers were stamped and coloured in green and yellow with a touch of pink added to coordinate with the background. I stamped the sentiment in black and split it in half so I could use it on the right side of the card. The edges of the flowers were brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush.

Try Stampin’ on Tuesday 499 - Multi-Coloured Butterfly

Welcome to Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Challenge 499! 

This week, the theme in addition to the sketch is butterflies. 

I created the colourful background using alcohol markers and rubbing alcohol. I chose colours that I wanted to use for my butterfly. That piece was mounted on white cardstock and I used a Lagoon pattern for the background. The sentiment was stamped in a close shade of purple and die cut. The butterfly was coloured using similar colours from the background. I added a few purple gems to the card to finish it and also brushed sections of the butterfly with the Clear Shimmer Brush.

Choose Kindness Floral Card

I saw a card like this on the Rubbernecker Stamp website - and fell in love! Florals are always my favourite images to use and this card was fun to create. 

The Daisy Meadows Scrapbooking stamp and thin cut set was a great option to use for this card. I stamped a bunch of images and coloured them all in the same colour scheme. They were all die cut and put aside while I created the center part of the card. 

The front of the card was stamped with the Choose Kindness sentiment and then ink splattered using the Charcoal Shimmer Brush. I chose Charcoal as it wasn't as dark as black. The flowers and leaves were adhered all around the edges and I trimmed any pieces that were hanging over the edge. I added some Stickles to the circle sections and brushed the lines of the flowers with the Clear Shimmer Brush. I absolutely love the end result! 



Products used are Close To My Heart:

Paper: White Daisy Cardstock, White Cards and Bases

Angled Ink Card

This card came about after I watched a terrific video by Yana Smakula. It is such a neat technique. 

I started with a piece of A2 white cardstock and several ink colours. Stencil pieces (just a square) were placed across the card in various spots to allow the ink to be contained within a specific area. I used a very old stamp to stamp the tree and another retired stamp for the sentiment, The inked piece was trimmed down and adhered to a piece of white cardstock and then mounted on the card base using foam tape. I added a few clear sequins (pulled from the Silver Loose Sequins) in various places around the card. 

Products used are Close To My Heart unless otherwise indicated: 

Paper: White Daisy Cardstock, Neenah Solar White Cardstock 

Stamps: Chelsea Gardens Cardmaking, Always Grateful

Layered Starbursts

I have been playing with some layered stencils and one is for a slimline card. I did one of these in a rainbow colour scheme (posted earlier) and then decided to try it using just three colours. The colours were selected as shades from a general colour. 

The first one is in pink - and I also masked and stamped the sentiment in pink shades. Some Silver Embellishing Thread and Silver Glitter Gems were added to the card. 

The second one was created using shades of blue and the sentiment here was also masked to use three different colours. The same embellishments were used on this card. 

Products used are Close To My Heart unless otherwise indicated: 

Paper: White Daisy Cardstock, Ballerina Cardstock, Bluebird Cardstock

Stamps: Hey, Hi, Hello
