Love




It's Still February so I am still making "love" cards. Actually this one is for the challenge at The Ton stamps


For my card I started with a top folding white A2 card base and a panel cut down with a stitched die.   This card was super simple to make. 
I stamped the Heart image from the set Bokeh Burst Heart and the stamped the Love across it.  I ran the bottom portion of the front panel thru an embossing folder and the added washi tape to separate. Simple as that.

Mirror Image Event with So Suzy and The Ton


I am back with another post. I am excited to be participating in the Mirror image event with inspiration from three design teams My Sweet PetuniaSo Suzy Stamps and The TonThis event last the entire month of February and there are lots of prizes to be won, all you have to do is visit the blogs and leave comments.


The Mirror Image stamp from So Suzy was designed especially for the MISTI, you can read the story HERE. I love this stamp because its so large, its the same size as a card front so it makes it easy to use.

My earlier post today was a bloghop celebrating Suzanne's (owner of So Suzy Stamps) birthday, so I decided to make another birthday card for her using the Mirror Image stamp. 

To make my card I started with the MISTI, a white top folding A2 card base, a piece of white card stock also cut to A2 size.  I stamped the image on the right side of the card stock as normal, then I placed the Mirror image stamp in the Misti and used the Creative Corners to help with placement.


Next I stamped the image on the Mirror Stamp and placed my card stock on top and then rubbed my fingers across it to transfer the image.


This gave me the mirror image of my image as seen here


I cut the panel down with a stitched die and colored the images with Copic markers. I used the MISTI again to add the greeting underneath. To finish the card I added a navy mat and some plaid design paper.

Happy Birthday Suzy!


Happy Monday and Happy Birthday to Suzy!
You should have arrived here via Janis' blog, if not you will want to go back to Justine's blog for the list so you don't get lost. I hope you have been enjoying the hop.
When asked if I wanted to participate in this birthday bloghop for Suzy I couldn't say no. I loved being on her design team and I got to meet her in real life at Creativation (CHA) and she is just as fun and awesome. 
For my birthday card, I used one of my favorite stamps from So Suzy, Blowing Butterfly Tree. I started with a white to folding card base and some distress inks, and the Quilted Stitched Spirals cover plate from Lil' Inker Designs and of course the MISTI


To make the background I ran the front panel through the bigshot using the Quilted Stitched Spirals and then blended Peacock Feathers and Tumbled glass for the sky and Twisted Citron for the grass. Using the MISTI I double stamped the Blowing Butterfly Tree twice to get a dark image and colored some of the butterflies with Copic markers. To finish the card I used the Happy Birthday stamp also from So Suzy.
What would a birthday bloghop be without presents right? so there are prizes involved to those of yu who comment on everyone's blog.

Bright Future



I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today, sharing this card made with a new release and an older favorite

For my card I started with a black top folding card base and a white stitched panel. I made the background by randomly stamping the diamond from the new set Worthy King to cover the panel and colored them in with Copic markers. 
I made a focal point with one of the quotes from the set Faith Quote Blocks.
I embossed the greeting in white embossing powder and then colored the word "bright" and the heart with comic markers.

Worthy King is in the Creative Worship line, I wanted to show it can be used for a card as well.






Sending Some Happy



It's time for another challenge at AAA Cards,  our sponsor is Uniko and the winner gets to choose an instock stamp set of their choice.


We would love for you to play along just be sure your card is CAS and uses watercolor of some sort.

For my card I started with a white top folding A2 card base and some watercolor paper cut down with a stitched die. I embossed the flowers from the Lil' inker Designs set Inky Flowers in white and then used Zig cleancolor pens to make a watercolor wash over them. The greeting is also from Lil' Inker designs from the set Hello Beautiful.

Wood



It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, I am the hostess for this challenge and I chose the keyword wood.  Our sponsor is Stamplorations with a $10 voucher to their store.


One of my reasons for choosing the keyword wood is this gorgeous Barnwood Background stamp from Concord & 9th. 
To make my card I started with a top folding card base and a stitched panel cut with the Blueprints 15 die from My Favorite Things, if you can't tell yet this is  my go to die for stitched panels on my cards. I also used the Pretty Petals set  for the blossom and the greeting is from another set Brushed Blossoms. I am so smitten with Concord & 9th, they have some gorgeous sets.
