Card to Scrapbook Page

Here is another project I shared at my last workshop. I hear often that I only scrapbook or I only make cards. So here I made a card then showed how to turn it into a scrapbook page.

This is the card with it real simple, just several different stars in several colors.

Then I made the page by running the stars the same way. You can easily add a picture to the bottom corner. Happy Stamping!!

Triple Scoop

Here is a card I showcased at my last workshop!

This card uses Sweet Scoops; which has been such a fun set to use! I cut out an oval in vellum with my big shot then cut it in half to create the bowl. I then sponged it with Apricot Appeal to give it some color. Each of the scoops are popped out to give dimension. Happy Stamping!

Sweet Scoops Twist

If you didn't make it to my workshop this last weekend here is one of the cards I showcased! Can you believe I made it with Sweet Scoops?

I took the stamp that is supposed to add texture to the ice cream scoops and made it into a package! The background is sprayed with the log cabin smooch spritz ... I am really beginning to like this stuff!!

I'm going to try to have one more workshop before the new catalog hopefully so make sure to not miss out! Happy Stamping!!

Cub Scout Project

As most of you know I am a cub scout leader and I tell you I make those poor boys be crafty!! Actually they all seem to like all my craft projects. The last one was making a catapult for their Engineer activity badge.

We made a basic box with card stock the added some skewers to make the working catapult part. They had the option of decorating the outside and this was how I had made mine, using Under the Stars stamp set; they mostly just colored theirs with designs. I watercolored the smores and then embossed the marshmallow with iridescent ice.

They had a lot of fun with this project but I think it was mostly the flinging of marshmallows across the room!! Happy Stamping!

Flores Suaves

If you haven't ever looked at the Spanish Catalog you really should there are some great stamp sets in there that you can't find in the big catty! One of my favorites is Flores Suaves; mostly because of that cute little butterfly! On this card I showcased the flower instead.

I love this card and was sad to mail it off to my secret sis from last round and she loved it too! I used my aqua painter to add color to the flowers and to add shimmer paint over the top of it. The DSP is Cottage Wall and the colors are Certainly Celery, Rich Razzleberry, and Pale Plum. Happy Stamping!!

Simple Scoops

I had a few pieces left of the mint scoops after I put together all my swap cards and I didn't want them to go to waste so I made this simple little card with the left overs.

I love simple cards with less stuff, plus they are easier to mail!! The only tool I used to make this was the paper crimper which I ran on just part of the chocolate cardstock. Happy Stamping!!

Sweet Scoop

Here was another card I had made for the blog hop but decided not to use it.

I love the color purple and I have to say I am going to miss all the different shades. BUT I am sure I'll love all the new colors when they come out!! This card is pretty simple, I used the scallop circle die to cut out the scallop circle and the clear circle die for the white circle, then layered them. The "brads" along the edge are made with my marker. Happy Stamping!!

You can tell I liked mint chocolate chip! This card is all mint! Happy Stamping!

Bird Card

Those of you that actually know me know that I hate am not fond of all those bird sets. I don't know why I love nature and spend a ton of my free time outdoors but it just seems like there are too many of those birds!! But anyways I earned all of the other level 2 sets from this catalog and this was the only left I could get called Wings of Friendship, so I got it and I made this cute little card:

I used So Saffron, Soft Suede and Cottage Wall DSP. To have the image in all the different colors I used my markers in So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Certainly Celery and Always Artichoke. So I have to say this little bird is cute and I'm glad I got him! Happy Stamping!!

Sometimes it just goes wrong ....

This card started out very simple but it needed something and then needed something and it just kept going wrong....

It was supposed to be a card of celebration but just seems a little morbid to me. I probably should have used some color instead! Oh well it just went into the scrap pile, I have more cards then I care to admit go into that pile. Happy Stamping!

Skater Birthday Card

As I said the other day my little one turned 10 on Saturday. Here is the card that I made him.

He loves to skateboard ... can't say that I'm too fond it of it but he does try to be careful!! I used Extreme Skateboard and Extreme Elements to make this card. His favorite color is red so I wanted a card with mostly red in it. I don't typical make cards in other sizes then the standard or 3x3 but this one is large and is about 6x6. The skateboard guy I stamped with versamark and embossed it with black embossing powder. The red round piece was cut out on the big shot with the clear circle die and is sprayed with smooch spritz. The black cardstock I crumbled up to make it worn and distressed. The Birthday saying came from an old set called Birthday Greetings. He thought the card was pretty cool! He made me a pretty cool Mom's Day card, paper flower's and a thoughtful letter that I am totally going to have to scrapbook! Happy Stamping!

Happy Mother's Day

I hope that all of you have a wonderful Mother's Day! Here area couple of the cards we gave out!!

This one is for my Mom who's favorite color is red. I did the reinker spread technique on this one and love the color that's came out. I used Real Read and Night of Navy. I sprayed the flower and white cardstock piece with shimmer paint mist. You can see all the shimmery mist in the card to the left. I also used the scallop border punch on the Bashful Blue cardstock and added a piece of Bashful Blue ribbon. I used the stamp set Fifth Avenue Floral.

This is one I made for my Hubby's Grandma! I used the Blossom Party die to make the flowers. I also spritzed the flowers and white cardstock piece with the shimmer paint (gotta LOVE that stuff!). I also used the scallop border punch on this one too! I used a small paint brush to to roll the edges of the flowers to give them more texture. Happy Mother's Day!

Bowling please!

My youngest son is turning 10 today .... where has all the time gone?? This year for his birthday again he wanted to have a bowling birthday party. So I came up with this little invite!

I rarely ever make shaped cards ... I don't know why they are pretty easy but I tend to stay away from them. I figured this was a good time to make one since I could shape it as a bowling ball. I took my big shot and with a folded piece of cardstock and sat it across the circle die with the folded edge near the top but not completely. I then embossed the tops with clear embossing powder ... after all bowling balls are shiny right? Then I used the 3/4 circle punch to make the finger holes. Then I used dimensionals to attach a darker cardstock behind to give it that added depth. I busted out my old Have a Ball stamp set to make pins and added the your invited on a strip of cardstock I shaped to the card with silver brads. On the inside I used the matching invitation info which was also from and old stamp set called Dot Invitation. Happy Stamping!

Turtle Z-Fold

First I wanted to say sorry for the picture being a little blurry. This was a card I made last round for a secret sister group I belong to on SCS. It was made using Nature's Nest ... I love this set because of that cute little turtle!

There pretty much only boys in my family so I try to make masculine cards to share more often because sometimes it is hard to make them. I folded this one in the Z Fold but instead of having it as an easel card it's more of a stand up card. If you use two different colors it gives a nice effect. I stamped the turtle in versmark and embossed it with black embossing powder then I water colored the turtle with my aqua painter to give it a bit more depth. Happy Stamping!!

With Sprinkles

This card was the last project I shared on the blog hop using Sweet Scoops. It's the one with the yummy sprinkles!

This card was done with Apricot Appeal and Melon Mambo, it was a surprisingly good color combo! For the ice cream I stamped it in Melon Mambo then cover it with crystal effects and then added a few beads. To give it a little more texture I heat set the crystal effects which you can see in the picture to the left. It looks really cool in person! I also used my stylus along the lines on the ice cream cone to add textured to that as well. I used the scallop border punch along one edge and used the sprinkle stamp on the base and embossed it with white embossing powder. Then topped it off with ribbon. Happy Stamping!!

Mint Chocolate Chip Trio

Here is the mint chocolate chip trio card I made for the hop! This flavor never lasts long in our house!!

This one was pretty easy! Of course the set was Sweet Scoops and I used DSP from the sampler hostess pack from the catalog. The other colors are So Saffron, Soft Suede and Certainly Celery. For the scoops I layered it with a thin coat of crystal effects to give off that little bit of sheen. Added a bit of ribbon and a couple of brads and it was good to go. Happy Stamping!!

Double Scoop

As I said after the hop I would share how I made each of the cards so come back the next couple of days to see each on. I am going to start with the double scoop sherbet one.

I stamped the "flavors" with Rich Razzleberry in succession to get the different colors and then spritzed them with the shimmper paint spray. If you click on the picture you can sort of see that the cone has some textured to it. I did that by running my stylus along the lines. I crimped the center section of the Rich Razzleberry paper. It needed a bit of color so I added the white ribbon and the faux brads and then ran some piercings all along the Rich Razzleberry cardstock and ran my white gel pen across them. Of course I used Sweet Scoops as the stamp set. Happy Stamping!
