Angel

Hello and a Happy Friday to all of you!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using a new die from Cheapo Dies.  I'll be here every Friday to share a new die with you so I hope to see you again.  In the meantime, be sure to take time to check out all the different dies they have available.  I'm having so much fun with all of the dies I've been sharing over the last several weeks.  They are good quality and you can't beat the price.  I know you'll love them as much as I do.  You can see them HERE.

The die featured today is the Angel Die.  I used up some things I aready had made.  The cardbase is Sugar Cube cardstock to which I added a layer of Lovely Lipstick I had embossed with the Regency Swirls 3-D embossing folder.  The sentiment is from the Holiday Florals stamp set and was stamped using Oreo ink.  The angel is cut from Powder Pink cardstock and glued over the embossed layer.  For the finishing touch I added a few rhinestones for a bit of bling.  Another simple but pretty Christmas card.

Again, you'll have to forgive the photograph.  I'm still getting sorted after my move and I'm just not there, yet.  It's been an interesting time trying to find what box my boys packed things in.  There was absolutely no labeling done, so I'm being surprised with every box I open.  It's an adventure!

WWC200 - Helen's "All About Occasions" Challenge

Wednesday here we go again!  And, it's time for a new Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  This week Helen is hosting our "All About Occasions" challenge.  It's also our 200th challenge.  We've been around since 2014 and have made many transitions through those years.  It has been so much fun and I'm so thankful for all of you who have shared your wonderful projects with us.

Today, I'm sharing one of the cards I made in the watercolor class I took when I attended Stamp Joy 2018.  It's a watercolor panel we colored using the Liquid Watercolor from Taylored Expressions.  Because the inks from TE are archival, and don't play well with water, you can' color with them.  These watercolors are fantastic.


Stamp Set:  Striped Background
Liquid Watercolor:  Lemon Meringue, Plum Punch, Lollipop, Peapod, Shimmer
Cardstock:  Lollipop, Lemon Meringue
Dies:  Stitched Frame Stacklets 1
Other:  3x4 Watercolor Panels - Inspire

Christmas at Sweet Stampin'

Hello everyone!  It's time for another challenge at the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge.  The challenge is always about Christmas, so every month you can make a Christmas card and have plenty in your stash come time to send them all out to your family and friends.  I love making my Christmas cards throughout the year.  It sure does eliminate the stress of making last minute cards.

Today is my last post for the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge as a member of the Design Team.  I'm sad to go but I have so much coming up that I knew I wouldn't be able to keep up.  I will miss you all on the team and you, the participants and your wonderful creations.

Love Collage

Hello and a Happy Friday to all of you!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using a new die from Cheapo Dies.  I'll be here every Friday to share a new die with you so I hope to see you again.  In the meantime, be sure to take time to check out all the different dies they have available.  I'm having so much fun with all of the dies I've been sharing over the last several weeks.  They are good quality and you can't beat the price.  I know you'll love them as much as I do.  You can see them HERE.

The die featured today is the Love Collage.  First I stamped the Buffalo Plaid Background onto Cherry Pop cardstock using Earl Grey ink.  I stamped off to give a softer look to the plaid.  The heart is cut from Sugar Cube cardstock and I glued it directly to the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cutting Edge - Flowers stamp set and attached it using foam tape to give it some dimension.  Then I added Sugar Cube Enamel Shapes for the finishing touch. I love how that heart looks against the red.

You'll have to forgive the photograph.  I recently moved and don't have my craft room completely unpacked and organized.  And, it didn't help that the sun did not shine today.  Hopefully, by next week, I'll have everything in order and the sun will cooperate.


Stamp Sets:  Buffalo Plaid Background, Cutting Edge - Flowers (Taylored Expressions)
Ink:  Earl Grey (Taylored Expressions)
Cardstock:  Cherry Pop, Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions)
Dies:  Love Collage (Cheapo Dies)
Other:  Sugar Cube Enamel Shapes (Taylored Exporessions)

Merry Branch

Hello and a Happy Friday to all of you!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using a new die from Cheapo Dies.  I'll be here every Friday to share a new die with you so I hope to see you again.  In the meantime, be sure to take time to check out all the different dies they have available.  I'm having so much fun with all of the dies I've been sharing over the last several weeks.  They are good quality and you can't beat the price.  I know you'll love them as much as I do.  You can see them HERE.

The die featured today is the Merry Branch.  I cut out four of the Merry Branch and glued them together since I wasn't going to be able to use foam tape.  It added just the right amount of dimension.  I used one of the negatives as a stencil and added a touch Coral Berry ink on the card front.  Then, I added the layered die-cut.  On each berry, I added a rhinestone I colored with a Copic marker.  Stamped a sentiment and viola! the card was done.  I love the clean and simple look of this.


Stamp Set:  Holiday Florals (Taylored Expressions)
Inks:  Coral Berry, Jet Black (Altenew)
Cardstock:  Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions)
Dies:  Merry Branch (Cheapo Dies)
Other:  Rhinestone Basic Jewels (Stampin' Up!), Copic Marker R27

Floral Butterfly

Hello and a Happy Friday you!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using a new die from Cheapo Dies.  I'll be here every Friday to share a new die with you so I hope to see you again.  In the meantime, be sure to take time to check out all the different dies they have available.  You can see them HERE.

The die featured today is the Floral Butterfly
I cut one butterfly out of Pacific Point cardstock and, using some foam tape, popped it up onto the stamped image.  The floral image is one I've had in my stash and thought it was a perfect way to show off this butterfly.  I stamped the sentiment and that was another card all done and ready to use.  I decided to add no embellishments so as not to detract from the die-cut.  I think this is such a pretty butterfly.


Stamp Sets:  Build-A-Flower:  Cattleya, Build-A-Flower:  Rose (Altenew)
Inks:  Jet Black, Caramel Truffle, Frayed Leaf (Altenew) 
Cardstock:  Delightful Dijon, Pacific Point (Stampin' Up!); Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions)
Dies:  Floral Butterfly (Cheapo Dies)

Candle Arrangement

Hello and a Happy Friday you!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using a new die from Cheapo Dies.  I'll be here every Friday to share a new die with you so I hope to see you again.  In the meantime, be sure to take time to check out all the different dies they have available.  You can see them HERE.

The die featuring is the Candle Arrangement Die.  I die-cut two of them, one in Sugar Cube and one in Poppy Parade and offset the red layer so it was peeking out from behind the white.  After stamping the Pine Bough Background in Cilantro ink, I stamped the sentiment from the Holiday Florals stamp set in Jet Black ink.  I popped up the die-cut on foam tape to give it a bit of dimensions.  For the finishing touch, I added a few Cherry Pop Enamel Dots.


Stamp Sets:  Pine Bough Background, Holiday Florals (Taylored Expressions)
Inks:  Cilantro (Taylored Expressions); Jet Black (Altenew)
