Pantry Party Gifts

Hi and welcome, everyone. Today I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog and I'm sharing three fun gifts for a Pantry Party. Have you ever been to a Pantry Party? Pantry Parties can be a lot of fun and it's a great idea for anyone who is buying a new home, especially, young couples. 

Let's start with the CJ Under the Sea box, just by changing the papers you can use this box for any occasion. I'm using it as a recipe box. One of the papers I'm using has recipe cards on it and they are a perfect for this box.The gift bag is the perfect size for a gift card, the card is so much fun and gorgeous. The bag and card are from the brand new JGW Apple Dandy Kit. Instead of adding the apples I used stickers from the Carta Bella Homemade with Love Paper Kit. I'm loving paper kits lately. All three projects are super simple to create and can be used for any occasion.

Just For You

Happy Sunday, everyone and welcome. Today I'm over on the Victorine Originals Blog sharing a simple design that reminded me of some of my first cards minus the sequins, of course. Do you ever look back at past projects to see how far along you've progressed? For me the difference is night and day.  
Using the Victorine Originals Just For You sentiment and Flowers stamp, I stamped the image  and sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink, add a little color with Zig Pens, die-cut an oval to frame image, adhered with 3D mounting foam, finished off with sequins. So simple, just the way I like it lately.

Sail Away with Me

Hi and welcome everyone! Today I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog sharing a fun pirate themed card with you. My first thought was this would be a great hand-delivered invitation for a small pirate themed birthday party.
Again, I let my paper inspire me with this. The Double Diamond card from the JGW Welcome to BOO-Ville is so much fun and worked perfectly with this paper and the SDS Pirate Ship.

Here's the card opened up and you can see how this would be a lot of fun for that pirate themed party with a treasure hunt.

You're Out Of This World!

Hi, everyone and welcome. Today I'm over on the Victorine Originals Blog to showcase a few Victorine Originals Stamps. I have to tell y'all I'm in love with the Saturn and Aliens In Spaceship stamps. I love the very whimsical feel and they're not too big making them a perfect pair along with the sentiment, You're Out Of This World
Next time I'll add a little color to the images but for now, I wanted them as is. 
To create this card I used a stamping tool, any stamping tool will work, Tim Holtz, Misti, Stampoholic, you decide! I DO NOT have a preference, in fact, I own several different ones. 
Okay, so position your stamps on your stamping tool and stamp them using Memento Ink Espresso Truffle, using the star stencil, distress oxides, and daubers randomly add stars around your stamped images. Finish off with enamel dots. Layer patterned paper onto cardstock, add fun foam to the back of stamped panel and layer onto patterned paper. 
As always, thanks for joini…

Have A Sunshiny Day

Happy Friday, everyone! Today I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog sharing two great ideas for summer gift giving. Using two pieces from the JGW Fathoms Deep Kit and CG Under the Sea Kit I created a gift box and card.  

Recently, I was in one of the local big box stores and found several paper kits marked down and I couldn't resist. Several of the kits are Summer themed, like this one I used by Authentique - Seafarer. It's nice to have new inspiration.  The top of the box is the center of Seafarer Eleven paper and if that's not a sign I don't know what is. It's the exact size of the accent layer for the box. I cut the top accent layer and cut the side accents using the same paper. I love this paper with this box and card. I used coordinating papers from the same kit to create the card. The sentiment banner is from the kit, too. 
Look at the details on the sides of the lid, gorgeous!

You're So Cool!

Hi and welcome, everyone! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper here with you today and I'm sharing a bright, summery card featuring the Double Take Ice Cream Stamps. I love the sketchy feel of this stamp and how you can use them separately or together. 

You can stack the ice creams on top of each other, too. Super cute. For this card, I first stamped the ice cream on scrap paper and cut out for masking. I randomly stamped the ice creams in pink, orange, green, and yellow masking them and then stamping the cone. To fill in some of the white space I randomly stamped the ice creams and then used a dot from the Dots Set to add a few dots. Die-cut and adhere to a patterned paper, I'm using my Perfectly Plaid paper here. Finish off with sentiment and a few enamel dots. 

As always, thanks for joining me. You can find all the details on my blog, The Relativity of Paper

Dots Stamp Set, A Must Have

Hi, everyone and welcome. Today I'm featuring the Victorine Originals Dots Stamp Set and sharing all the cards I've created with it, so far. I love this set because the possibilities are endless, as you will see it's perfect for creating backgrounds, use it as the focal point of your card, it offers two great sentiments, and three of the dots have the words Happy, Joy, Love.   Here I used the dots to create a fun background.  Here I used the dots and Happy Birthday sentiment as the focal point of my card.  Adding Red and Blue dots to the tags gave them a fun festive feel for my 4th of July goodies. 

Using the sentiment as my focal point and stamping the dots with VersaMark ink for a tone on tone background. 
I created a fun background for my nautical themed card just by using the large stripe and changing ink colors. 
This next card is my absolute favorite. I love this technique of adding ink to the stamps in a swiping motion, it really changes things. I have a video tuto…

Ahoy, Landlubbers!

Hi, everyone and welcome! Today I'm sharing my inspiration for the Inspiration Board Challenge over at Victorine Originals. Using the colors of the board I created a striped nautical themed card. This is such an easy card to create using a stamping tool, Memento inks (Nautical Blue, Pear Tart), SSS Audrey Blue, and the stripe from the Victorine Originals Dots Set! If you follow along you've probably seen me use this stamp set on several different cards. It's definitely a great set to add to your stamp collection.  After stamping the stripes, I layered it onto patterned paper and added a few stickers from the EP Pirate's Life Kit. 
 Now it's your turn to show us your take on the Victorine Originals Inspiration Board. I can't wait to see what you create today!

Worlds Best Dad

Happy Friday everyone and welcome. I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog today sharing a quick and simple gift card box. Wednesday was my Dad's birthday and I needed a quick gift card box that would hold not only a gift card but a few miniature Snickers underneath. Of course, JGW GONE FISHING KIT from SVG Attic has a great gift card box included. It was the perfect size for my gift card and eight miniature Snickers fit perfectly under the insert. 

To create this box I used my Silhouette Cameo and Photoplay's Family Ties. This box and those papers were meant to meet! That's all I can say. I didn't add the accent pieces to the sides of the box top because the paper is wood grain and I love the way it looked. I did add the top accent piece using fun foam to add some dimension, wrapping the twine around the top accent and then adhering it to the box lid.

Multi-Color Stamping with Video Tutorial

Hi and welcome, everyone! Today I'm sharing a multi-color stamping technique featuring the Victorine Originals Map Background Stamp.  I know not many of us think about using Map Stamps for feminine cards but I say why not?  By adding a little pink and using a more feminine matting it can be done. 

The second card has a more masculine feel to it but it uses the same stamping technique. I just left off the pink and changed the sentiment. 

I hope you'll give this stamping technique a try and let me know how you like it.  Here's a video tutorial to walk you through the whole process.

Tic-Tac-Toe CAS-ual Friday Challenge

Hi and welcome, everyone! Today I'm sharing a very pink card I made for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge.  To create this card I used Pretty Posies Stamps and Tag Buddies Fri-Dies.  To get started I used clear embossing powder with the Pretty Posies stamps for a emboss/resist technique. After heat setting and allowing it to cool, I just Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in the color Pink FlambĂ©, set aside to dry. Die-cut largest Tag Buddy and stamp with Memento Ink in the color Lilac Posies and heat emboss with clear embossing powder, stamp sentiment the same way.  Layer on #110 card base. 
Here's your Tic-Tac-Toe Board. I used the center line; monochromatic, add a tag, no embellishments. 

Now, I want to see your take on this fun challenge. Hop over to the blog and join us. 

Modern Background Stamp

Hi, everyone and welcome! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a fun stamping technique using the edge of your ink pads to create a streaking effect.

I used the Modern Background Stamp and tilted my ink pads so that I could run the edge of the felt pad across my stamp. After you get the first layer or two of ink down then you can go back and add more streaks wherever you may want them. 

This is a one layer card and it's relatively easy to make. Just play around with scrap paper and get the hang of tilting your ink pad and swiping it across the stamp.

Okay, now it's your turn to give this technique a go! Let me know how you like it or if you have any questions.

So Fancy with Victorine Originals

Hi, everyone and welcome! Today I'm over on the Victorine Originals Blog sharing a winter-themed card with you today. I know, we have one foot in Summer and here I am sharing a Winter-themed card with you. I will tell you a secret about myself, I'm not a Summer girl, never have been. I love Fall and Winter, it's the happiest time of the year for me. So, to say I had a little fun working with my Winter papers is an understatement.

I fell in love with this stamp when I saw it, she is just so Fancy, right? The stamp is called Lady with Three Dogs. And there is another one called Lady with Two Dogs that is Fabulous, too! 

Didn't I tell you they are both Fabulous? 

To create this card I stamped the image using Memento Ink Nautical Blue using a stamping tool, stamping the image twice. I like a sharp, dark image. Since I was going with a winter-theme,  because that coat screams winter, I decided to run the stamped image through my Xyron and covered it with glitter. Not just …
