shine

Good morning! Just sharing a quick, CAS card as a little reminder to shine today!  I used the Sweet ‘n Sassy Worthy King Clear Stamp Set from the Creative Worship line.

Can you spot the jewel image? With just a few added lines, I turned it into a pencil! ha!

Have a great day and enjoy the remainder of the weekend!  Thanks for popping in and… happy stamping!

hello bunny

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with another card using the new Ai Easter set, 4886-Easter Blessings. I love the sweet images in this set and this time I chose the cute bunny relaxing in the flower for my card today.  I wanted this to be a general “hello” card rather than an Easter one so I used the sentiment from 4759- Hello Friend MTF.

I decided to go with another CAS card with some vertical panels, using up a few patterned paper scraps.  It feels good to make use of them!

Have a great day and… happy stamping!

Good morning!

Today I am sharing a CAS card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the new Pretty Potted Florals and Floral Greetings (for my sentiment) stamp sets from this month’s release.

I kept this clean and simple and used up some scraps of paper.  I pulled the colors from the paper to color with Copics.  The flower petals and pot were stamped again, colored, and popped with foam dimensionals.

Easter blessings

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using a new Art Impressions Easter set (which is so darn cute), 4886-Easter Blessings.  This set has 4 sweet bunny images to choose from plus a few extras. I picked one of the smaller images to fit the style of card I was creating.

A good friend of mine recently made one of these Recessed Panel Cards with our local stamping group and I thought it would be perfect to make with this set. I made 2 very similar versions with a change of patterned paper and placement of the sentiment.

The left and right white panels are popped up with foam tape so that the patterned paper panel is “recessed”. This is a fun, easy way to create interest in your card front.

I stamped the sentiment a second time and popped up the words Life and God. The owl is also popped up.

Hi valentine

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using an Art Impressions valentine set which is one of Ai’s new releases for Creativation (CHA), 4885- Nuts About You.  This set has cute squirrels, acorns, and a few punny sentiments to match.  Perfect to get your valentine stamping done!

nuts about you 2 diane zechman

I tried an offset panel layout to showcase this fun image and embossed the white panel with clouds.  Then I added a few die cut clouds and included the sentiment on one.  The sentiment cloud, squirrels, and balloon are popped up with dimensionals.

Have a great day and… happy stamping!

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the Ai 1923- Twins stamp.  My sentiment is from the 4220- Fur-ever Set.  I never knew Art Impressions had this old lady in a fur coat holding her cat until a few months ago and when I saw it, I knew it was a must-have!   What a fun image!  They say owners and their pets look alike and this pair is no exception!

I kept this one a simple black & white card with a pop of color and I kept wanting to add some more embellishments but I really liked it just the way it is.  Sometimes less is more!

Have a great day and… happy stamping!

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the Michael’s exclusive set called His & Hers Campers, which is now also available on the Ai site!  This card was made for one of my husband’s previous co-workers who recently retired. With all of the freeeeezing temps we’ve had lately, I’m sure he is looking forward to spending time at his camper by the lake this summer!

Since I needed a masculine card, I pulled out some plaid papers and kept it clean & simple…no frills!  I stamped the little camper and a sentiment on the inside.

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the Merriest Christmas Set (4790) . The small flake is from the Michael’s exclusive set called Warm Wishes.  Even though this set was designed for Christmas, these snow people are perfect for your cards all winter long!

I did make a bunch of these for Christmas, though, so I kept them CAS with no coloring and sort of made a collage.

I added some crystal lacquer to the “glass” on the light pole and some Stickles to the tree and snow.  The tree was popped with dimensionals.

Good morning and…Happy New Year!

Today I am sharing a card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the LOL Cats stamp set and the Number Dies.  Of course, the numbers need to be shiny for a brand new year…so I pulled out a pack of foiled papers to die cut them with.
