Color of the Month- Scarlet


This Card kit will be very simple to make. I only used the one stamp set and did first and second generation stamping all over the background. The tag is cut from the set of dies below. The snowflakes are cut from the set of dies below also. 

November Stamp of the Month- Christmas Snowflake


November is half over, and I am just now getting this done. This stamp set is so beautiful and has so much potential for all different creative endeavors for cards, scrapbook pages and even decor. What will you make with it? Post your creation on my Facebook group, I want to see your ideas!

I used the Nebula Stickles Glitter Gel quite generously on each card. Here are the close ups of each card.
This card was heat embossed with silver embossing powder and I blended Oxide Inks over top but only in the center. I added the glitter gel on the top layer after fussy cutting each piece. If you look closely, you will see I first heat embossed directly on the grey background first. 

This card has a tag made from the Tag Kit that is available until Dec. 31 as a fun tag including 12 stamp sets. The pocket is made from Vellum and cut with the Tag Builder Dies pictured below. I stamped the mandala design on the background of the grey piece and the tag has the gel on it.  Such a fun set.

This card is really simple. Just stamped background with the Glitter Gel swiped over the light color parts. The sentiment is stamped on the oxide ink blended on the background.

May Stamp of the Month- again?


Another card I made with primarily Oxide Inks, Stencil Pack 1 and 2, Circles and Patterns Workshop kit, Postage Frames Thin cuts, and Black Acrylic embellishments and a left-over piece from In Full Blooms embellishments. White Daisy Ink, White Paint Pen, white gel pen, stamp set from the Circles and Patterns and the sentiment is from the May Stamp of the Month.

And I thought this stamp set was going to be hard to come up with very many card ideas. LOL!

Circles and Patterns Scrapbook Workshop Kit

So, another Close to My Heart Maker (unfortunately I can't remember who) made a heart on a card with these fun stamps and thin cuts and I looked up other Tangrams on Google and found this one that was fun to copy. I had to cut the card as a 6" x 6" to fit it on. Remember that size? LOL! I learned the hard way NOT to make it for a swap that had to be sent in the mail. This size is best for handing to the recipient. I used up leftovers of these circles and pieces from my previous scrapbook layouts shown earlier. 

I used the Postage Frames Thin Cuts for the sentiment, and the Love came from the May Stamp of the Month. I used Oxide Inks to color in the sentiment also. I thought it was fun playing around with this idea. 
If you have this set, find a Tangram to copy and make a card or scrapbook layout and share your beautiful creation in the comments of this post on my Facebook Group, Making Pretty Things with Paper.

 This Kit and all the other National Scrapbook Day Kits are available until May 31 or until supplies last.

May Stamp of the Month Kits


May Stamp of the Month Kits!

I used more of the Fresh Paint Paper and color scheme on these three cards. I wasn't sure how I was going to come up with 3 different designs, so here's my ideas and I hope you like them. Lots of watercoloring using our Watercolors and even the ink from our Ink Pads. So, you will be getting watercolor paper in your kits because our White Daisy won't stand up to all the water you will be using. 

Here are the close ups of each card that is included in the kits. 

Someone suggested that some of the sentiments and the scenery design would work great on Graduation Cards and Scrapbook Layouts. I think I would have to agree! What do you think?

I used pieces of the acrylic embellishments and Fresh Paint Acrylic Shapes on these cards. You may not get what is exactly on the cards but, you are guaranteed embellishments from these collections in your kits.

May Color of the Month Kit

 Sorry, I am kind of behind again. I keep getting closer to catching up though and I will be doing those lives to make all these cards soon. 

Anyway, here is the May Color of the Month

It's graduation time, what can I say? The colors of the Fresh Paint Paper just go so well with the graduation theme I thought. They are so bright and cheerful and "cool"! 

This month I couldn't find an A-size stamp set so you will be getting two of the M-size and they "were absolutely made for each other" as you can see in the picture below of the card, I designed for ya! I am also adding a bottle of the Stickles to round out that price!

Z4288- Capri Shimmer Brush

Z6528- Capri Ink Pad

M1311- Congrats Roll
M1312- You Did It!

Z3785- Icicle Stickles
