Simon Says Stamp


US of CRAFT-AY is a brand new set full of all the most adorable crafty tools and sentiments.  I wanted to create a clean and simple card and I had to incorporate all the sentiments so I came up with this....


Simon Says Stamp


I stamped the main sentiments on the white card base using my Misti and then added in the die cut "rainbow" and the other crafty tools.  I love that sentiment....Make America Craft Again!  So fun!

I knew this Peony Bouquet stamp would have so many possibilities, but of course, I had to go quick and simple.  


Simon Says Stamp


I inked up the full stamp with Altenew's Rouge Ink and then sponged in some Heartbeat Red in the center.  I stamped in the sentiment from Crafty Bunnies and then added score lines along the bottom to finish it off.

I had to use the US of CRAFT-AY set one more time, so I colored up and die cut all of those adorable tools.

I heat embossed the white embossing powdered sentiment on the red stitched rectangle and then added in all the tools with fun foam.  Last, I added the focal point to a scored base to keep it full of my favorite white space!

The Confetti Collection Day 2 {The Greetery}...


Hello and welcome to day 2 of the full Greetery Reveal!  Before I get started, I wanted to remind you that I will be over on The Greetery's IG at 11am CST today (Thursday)!  I am going to show you all the new products in real time and answer any questions you may have.



Let's get started with today's projects....



The Greetery


This first clean and simple card was made using the new Pinwheel Party Stencils.  These are the most genius stencils and make the most adorable pinwheels on your cards.  I grabbed the little stencils in the pack and added in 3 small pinwheels.  I used the Pinwheel Party Stamps to add in that big sentiment and little stars all in black ink.  I traced the sentiment in Glossy Accents to make it pop!

I wanted to use the Pinwheel Party dies with that adorable Let's Party sentiment, so I added it to one of the Balloon Bouquet balloons.  I figure with these soft yellows and oranges, this "Let's Party" means a garden party!  LOL!  I added in some masked strips with yellow in the background and then layered the balloon and sentiment to finish it off.

Using the Pinwheel Stencils again, I created a vertical card used the 4 stencil set.  These are so fun to work with and SO easy to line up with the etched lines.  I used the negative of the lets' party from my second card and popped it up on fun foam.  I finished this card off with some confetti dies and sequins.

Last but not least, I used the new Cake Pops Dies in a different way than intended.  I used The Greetey's Tag dies to create a set of tags perfect for a party!  

In this mix here are the Cake Pops Die Collection, the Cake Pops Numbers Candles Die Collection, Cake Pop Banner Die Collection and the Cake Pop Sentiments Mini Stamp Set.  I had so much fun making  these tags and adding all the details in.  Check out the Greetery Blog to see what they are really intended for!  :)

I am going for complete clean and simple here with this little crafty friend invitation....

These images are from a new set called US of Craft-ay!  So fun!  It has coordinating dies that are always a must and the sentiments are just so fun!

I lined these images up in my Misti and stamped them in black and red ink.  I die cut the little ruler and color it up with a gray and red Copic.  To finish it off, I added some glossy accents to the heart! Super simple!

The Confetti Collection Release {The Greetery}...




Happy Wednesday, friends!  Its time to share Day 1 of the Greetery Reveal with you.  There are lots of new stamps and dies in this release and, of course, they are all amazing!

Let's get started with a rainbow...


The Greetery


This new stamp die combo called Think Happy is absolutely beautiful.  It comes with the rainbow and that cloud full of adorable blooms!  There I also a small coordinating stamp set that goes along with it filled with the perfect sentiments.  Using several coordinating colors, I pieced everything together to create this simple scene.  I finished it off with a sentiment and some clear drops.

In this project, I used the new stamp set called Balloon Bouquet and its coordinating dies.  This big balloon image is so gorgeous with all those flowers.  And of course, the set has lots of sentiments in that amazing handwritten font.  I added the balloons to a white card base with a couple of the Crepe Dies in the background to keep it simple!

Birthday Blooms is another new set this month.  The coordinating dies work with the sentiments in the stamp set to create a beautiful statement!  For this card, I stamped the blooms on a white card panel and then added in a little ink blending around the edge.  I die cut the sentiment from the panel and then stamped the sentiment on the card base.  I popped up the front panel on foam tape and then added in the postage details from the Pretty Postage Stamp Set.

And one more quick card because all I want to do is stamp these balloons!  I masked off the background after adding in a couple of the Crepe Dies.  I added ink blending to the center of the masking and then added in the balloon.  This time I only stamped the flowers on a white balloon die cut and finished it off with clear drops.
