Thanks To You

Happy Friday, once more! I'm back, I know, three times in a day, really Lisa? But I have a great guy card featuring SumMore Fun Raisin Boat Strokes of Pride Clear Stamps that I want to share with you. And, of course, I'm hoping it offers up inspiration and you hop over to the new challenge, link your projects, and maybe, just maybe, win a $20 gift code to the SumMore Fun Online Store

I think first I should share the new challenge mood board with you so you get a feel for where I was coming from with this card. Then we'll jump right into the how-to.

Let's make a card! This style is not my "norm" but some times you just have to do it. 

  • Using 80 lb white cardstock stamp the streaks from the Raisin Boat Strokes of Pride stamp set alternating colors. I used Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Red Royal, Memento Ink Nautical Blue, Toffee Crunch, Olive Grove
  • Stamp the eagles randomly on 80 lb white cardstock using same inks 
  • Stamp the star using Memento Ink Nautical Blue and the "U.S.A." using Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Red Royal
  • Cut stamped panels down to desired size 
  • Using Raisin Boat Roasted Red Pepper cardstock to create a 4.25" x 5.5" top fold card base
  • Use a piece of Kraft, Olive Green, and Navy Blue to mat stamped panels
  • Layer onto cardbase - first layer adhere using permanent adhesive, second layer using 3D mounting foam, the third layer do half with permanent adhesive and half with 3D mounting foam so it sits level on other layers
  • Stamp sentiment from same stamp set using VersaMark Ink onto black cardstock, add white embossing powder, and heat set. (anti-static powder and pre-heat gun always) 
  • Adhere to card using 3D mounting foam 

I have a full list of supplies below. I did receive the Raisin Boat Strokes of Pride Clear Stamps as compensation for my contributions to the SumMore Fun Design Team but all other products were purchased by me personally.

Form Fluttering

Form Fluttering, so silly. I'm back again to share a fun project that would be great for anyone who loves fashion and sewing.  Did I mention I'm sharing this on the SVG Attic Blog, too? I highly recommend you checking it out. The Inspiration Team has some of the most amazingly talented ladies.
The JGW Dress Form is from the JGW Just Sew Collection and can be found over on the Snapdragon Snippets Site or in the Silhouette Design Store. I've been wanting to create this dress form and in true Lisa fashion it had to be bright and happy. Photo Play's Rhapsody was clearanced at one of the big box stores for $2.50 per kit, $2.50. Back the truck up, we have a steal! If you've followed me for anytime you know my love for these kits. Sometimes when I've exhausted all the crafty mojo I can pull a kit and the ideas just flow, sometimes. The papers are covered in beautiful, bold colors, just what I was looking for. 

There's a wonderful step-by-step tutorial, here by the creator of the file. Please be sure to check it out when you start your project. The first thing I did was cut all the pieces I needed ahead of time. Yes, the pieces have been sitting in a box for two weeks waiting for me. Hey, it works. 

When I started assembling the dress form, I gathered all of MY necessary supplies and then went to it. I jumped around a bit because several pieces have multiple layers and I wanted to give them time to dry while I worked on other pieces. 

I'll never stop talking about these clips and how much time they save me. 

I decided to add a little texture to these accent pieces by running them through an embossing folder and BigKick. 

I added ink to bring out the woodgrain from embossing. 

After assembling the form I started adding a few embellishments.

Here's the finished product. 

The wheels were turning while I was assembling the dress form. So keep checking back for things to come. 

As always, thanks for joining me and have a great weekend.

I did receive the JGW Dress Form for free but all other supplies used were purchased by me personally. Some of the links provided are affiliate links. I will earn a small commission if you purchase through these links, at no extra cost to you. I use the commission to buy more products, to create more projects to share with you. 


Hi and welcome, everyone! Today I'm sharing a new card featuring the CAS-ual Fridays Celebrate Stamp Set and Jumping Jack Fri-Dies. Also be sure you join us over on the CAS-ual Fridays Friday Challenge Blog and join in the new challenge, 9th Birthday Celebrations!!  Be sure to check out the FREE stamp over below.

How fun are those jacks with that big bold sentiment, very retro, in my opinion.

Remember the FREE stamp offer I mentioned above here are the details. 


a discount code! Does it get any better?

So I feel like there's not a lot to share on how to create this card but here goes.

  • Pick patterned paper and matching cardstock. From my stash of paper I picked a pattern that has a  retro vibe to it, adhere to a 4.25" x 5.5" top fold card base.
  • Using the famous #80 white cardstock I did a little partial die-cutting with the JUmping Jack Fri-Dies and then cut three large and 4 smaller jacks out of coordinating cardstocks. 
  • Stamp the sentiment on the lower third of that famous #80 white cardstock. Any ink will do.
  • Add fun foam or 3D mounting foam to the back and adhere to bottom of cardbase, over patterned paper. 
  • Add die-cut jacks and stamp sentiment on inside of card. 

So, once again, another quick and simple card. 
As always, thanks for joining me.

Happy Friday, everyone! Today I'm over on the SumMore Blog sharing a card with a great message, Remember. I'm pulling out my go-to words, quick and simple. Maybe I should make that my motto. 
I did make this in a hurry yesterday. I've been battling a serious cold for two weeks and yesterday was the first day back in the craft room. My husband joked, you haven't been on your laptop but a few times, you are sick! I should have said REMEMBER who cooks your food, buddy! LOL Anyway, I think I'm on the downside of this mess and so glad. 

Using the Strokes of Pride Stamp Set  stamp the "streak" using red ink on white cardstock. Stamp the star on heat resistant acetate using versamark ink and blue embossing powder. Tip: Always remember to use anti static powder when using embossing powder and pre-heat your heat gun. Heat set the powder. Stamp sentiment using gray ink on white cardstock, add 3D mounting foam to the back of sentiment and decided placement on card then adhere to acetate. Flip the acetate over and add another piece of 3D mounting foam to the backside of acetate hiding it behind the sentiment, adhere to stamped card panel. Add enamel dots randomly on acetate adding 3D mounting on the backside of the acetate, hiding it behind the enamel dots and adhere to stamped panel. Center on a 4.25" x 5.5" card base. 

Stamp the sentiment "this nation..." inside of card.

Hi and welcome, everyone!Today I'm taking over the SVG Attic Blog today with a few Mother's Day projects and as always, they are quick and simple.  

I used the Mothers Day Flower Step Card  and Lacy Loop Flap A6 Envelope along with the Tall Box with Lid to create a gift box.  

I only used a few extras from the card because I am a CAS girl. So cut the card base, the panels to cover the card base, the flower, and lace accent pieces and adhere to card. I die-cut the MOM using a die from stash. I added 3D mounting foam behind the three flower petals and the die-cut mom to pop them up. Finished off with coordinating enamels dots.
The envelope was cut using the same paper and put together with Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.

For the box I cut the sides, the bottom, the lid and extra layers out of the same patterned paper and pieced together with quick dry adhesive. I typed MOM on my cutting mat in the SDS and laid over the accent panel that comes with the box, clicked create a compound path then cut. Once I cut the panel I added 3D mounting foam to the back of the panel and added pink shimmer cardstock behind it. I added a flower to the lid for a "handle" from my stash. 

The paper is from the Recollections Backyard Table 12 x 12 Paper Pad. 

I'm wishing you a Happy Mother's Day. 
And as always, thank for joining me.
