*NEW* Jane Davenport Artomology Collection | Spellbinders

Hello!  Today I am featuring some Jane Davenport goodies from Spellbinders.  These products were so much fun to work with and very different than what I usually do.  Sometimes it is so nice to get out of your comfort zone and try something new!  You never know, it may turn into a new obsession.

The first card I made was with the GORGEOUS Tousled Face Die from the Artomology Collection.  I made the alcohol ink backgrounds a little bit ago, but thought this orange one would look great with the die cut out of black card stock.  That face detail is awesome!  I added a couple flowers from my stash to add some interest.

20190607_171308

The next card is using a die from the same collection called, Mums the Word.  I had another alcohol ink background that was not so bright so I grabbed some pearlescent pink card stock and die cut out the mum to pair with the pink, blue, and purple colors in the background.  The mum die has endless possibilities!

20190607_171258

Finally I had the Palette Pastel in Birthday Suit from the Making Faces Collection.  I LOVE make-up and this palette screamed at me as it has a good selection of skin tones and a pop of color to make up the faces.  I paired it with the I Came, I Saw, I Contoured pack of face prints and I LOVE the way it turned out.  The pack of faces measure 6″x9″ but as you can see, you can cut them down to fit an A2 size card.  Love the soft looks you can create with the palette.

I do have a process video on how I created these cards.  If you would like to see, you can click here.  Direct links to the products I used are underlined above for easy reference.  Just click and a new window will pop up.

Which one is your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by!

***********************************************

Hello! Today I am featuring 5 cards from the Scrapping for Less May card kit.  Now if you follow me on YouTube and/or Instagram, you know I just had carpal tunnel release surgery on my right hand.  When I agreed to work with the Scrapping for Less kit at the beginning of this year, I didn’t know it would be at the same time of my surgery.  That being said instead of making my usual 10 cards, I had to settle for 5, and I made the 5 cards with one hand!  This was challenging and interesting to say the least, especially since I am right handed.  So, please forgive any crooked cut lines as that is what I had the most trouble with.  Otherwise I kept my cards fairly simple and really enjoyed working with the kit.

I do have an unboxing video posted HERE (will open in new window) if you want to check out what comes in the kit.  I will have my 5 cards 1 kit video posted soon (if not already by the time you read this) to my YouTube channel, so make sure you head on over there and subscribe so you don’t miss that video and future videos.

Below you will find pictures of the cards I created. Thank you to Scrapping for Less for letting me work with your kit this month.  It was a lot of fun and I just love the theme!  Hope you all enjoy my cards!

Don’t forget to participate in the blog hop.

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2018| Fall/Winter

Coffee-Lovers-Blog-Hop-10

One of my favorite times of year as a card maker is being able to participate in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  It’s the same routine each time where I go through my stamp inventory and pull all my coffee stamps I have yet to use.  The chosen one this time around was Penny Black’s Saying a Latte.  I so love this girl and knew right away what I wanted to do.

Paper piecing was on the brain and I immediately decided that her shirt should be paper pieced with some holiday patterned paper.  Once I got started, I thought, hmm well tank tops really don’t go with winter, but maybe she is in her house by the fireplace?? Maybe??  We are going with that!

DSCN1324

I colored her with Copic markers after paper piecing her tank top, then used a Lawn Fawn stamp set for the sentiment.  The patterned paper I used for the circle and the background paper all come from the same pack.  Added some gold enamel dots and called her done!

DSCN1326

All information about the blog hop and a link to the video of me making this card are below.  Links to products are in the description box of my video.  Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapping for Less – Flavor of the Month Kit – Birthday Wishes – July 2018

Hello friends!  Today I am featuring the July 2018 Banana Split Flavor of the Month kit called “Birthday Wishes.”  Below you can see the all the products that come in the banana split kit.  It is definitely jam packed with goodies to make a ton of cards!

If you would like to check out the kit that I will be featuring, you can find it here: Banana Split Kit.  Scrapping for Less also has another kit option and you can find that here: Double Dip Kit.

DSCN9788

The banana split kit comes with the following: (4 collections, 8 pieces of cardstock, 4 envelopes, and a stamp to accompany each collection) + a small embellishment package for each collection. Added to the Banana Split is an ink medium of some sort; ink cube, Nuvo drops, stickles, marker etc. a sentiment stamp, a die to coordinate with the theme,  and an extra embellishment that coordinates with the kit.  See?  You get a lot!

So here is the first collection.  I loved this stamp set so much from Avery Elle and the color scheme of the patterned paper worked great with the foxes.

DSCN9793

Here is the card I made with this collection.  See what I mean when I say those foxes are adorable?!  The only thing I added from my stash was the twine in the background.

DSCN9796

Here is the next collection which is a great collection to make masculine cards!

DSCN9792

This little card was so much fun to make with the old fashion radio.  The musical note ribbon was a lot of fun too!

DSCN9797

The third collection was perfect for the girls in your life.  I loved coloring the cake from the Sunny Studio stamp set.  See that ribbon?  That is self adhesive ribbon, so I had to take advantage of that convienence in my card below.

DSCN9790

Look at that sweet little cake?  I colored it using Copic Markers.  See how I used that ribbon?  I cut a small panel and trimmed the ribbon to fit, peeled off the backing and stuck it down.  Easy peasy and so much fun!

DSCN9798

The forth collection and the last collection if you get the Double Dip kit featured this sweet little pineapple stamp and die.  However that little pineapple ephemera was calling my name!  I HAD to use it!

DSCN9791

Look at her face?!  The sentiment ephemera is adorable too.  Couple pieces of pattern paper and boom you have a card!

DSCN9799

If you opt for the banana split kit, you get this extra collection.

DSCN9794

For this card I just had to bring back that cake stamp.  The stamp set included in this collection is adorable with the party flamingos and will come in handy for future cards!  I had to use that cool candle embossing folder too!

DSCN9795

I brought in some sparkly purple glitter paper from my stash to die cut out the word “wishes” and added White Blizzard Nuvo Drops to the cake and flames for some extra sparkle.  Isn’t that candle embossing folder cool?

Hope you guys enjoyed these cards and found some inspiration.  If you are interested in the kit, you may want to grab it before it is gone.  Next months kit comes out in less than a week! So stay tuned!
