My Pawlidays!

Did you hear that Paperie Ink stamps has their holiday release out?! I am showcasing the adorable My Pawliday stamp set with you today on my mini slimline card!

I used these products for my mini slimline design:

I began my mini slimline with 6 1/2 x 4 card base.

For the background, I first die cut the scalloped panel into my mini slimline size by using the partial die cut method (run through partway, rotate and line up, and run through again!), inked it with aged mahogany, victorian velvet, and milled lavender, and splattered with white paint and gold shimmer spray.

Next, I stamped the puppy tree, puppies, rug, and chair, colored them with copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I arranged them all around the oversized sentiment that I had layered with the top from blue foil cardstock and finished with a few blue jewels!

Now you can take some time and check out the new release from Paperie Ink stamps HERE!

Warm Fall Hugs!

Hello! Candice with you today and I just love the new Autumn stamp sets from the new release at Reverse Confetti and used them to create this Fall slimline card!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth to fit my card front, die cut the Circle Elements on each side, inked it with tea dye and antique linen, and splattered with white paint, brown and gold shimmer spray using a damp paintbrush.

While that dried, I inked a scrap piece of Bristol Smooth with crackling campfire and aged mahogany and cut it with the warm hugs die. I layered it on multiples of thick white cardstocks cut from more of the warm hugs die and glued to the center near the top.

Next, I stamped the floral bloom, leaves, cider mug, apple, and cinnamon sticks onto watercolor paper using Versafine Ink, colored them with Zig watercolor markers, and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out. I adhered them to the card using glue, foam tape, and double foam tape to really give depth to my images and finished with some dark pink jewels!

Zig colors I used: pale orange, brown, deep red, mid green, and deep green

Thank you for visiting with me today and I hope you are enjoying some beautiful Fall weather!

Reverse Confetti October Inspirational Blog Hop

Hello! I hope you are being inspired as you are hopping along with us today at Reverse Confetti while enjoying a relaxing moment! I have some festive gnome Christmas tags for you today that came together rather quickly with Reverse Confetti’s tag dies!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my tags:

I began the tags by die cutting the bases twice, once from pattern papers and thick white cardstock, and adhered them together for a strong base. I then die cut the burst from the same thick white cardstock and glued to the center of my tags.

For the sentiments, I die cut the rounded banners using the thinnest die from the Three Tags set using the partial die cut method (die cut partway, rotate and line up, and run through partway again!). This allowed me to create the exact length for each sentiment that I heat embossed in white! I adhered them to the bottom of each tag with foam tape.

Next, I stamped the gnomes, trees, house, satchel, and stars, colored them with copic markers and accenting with a gold pen, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I then used foam tape to or glue to put them above the sentiment banners and finished with some white ribbon and colored twine!

Don’t forget to take advantage of this fabulous Fall sale!

All is Calm, All is Bright

How many of you love those big sentiment stamps?! This new set, Giant Holiday, from Paperie Ink stamps gives you 2 different Holiday sets in one!

I used these products to create my quick mini slimline design:

I began my mini slimline with a 6 1/2 x 4 card base.

For the background, I inked a piece of green cardstock with mowed lawn, rustic wilderness, and black soot and heat embossed the beautiful large sentiment in gold along the bottom.

Next, I heat embossed the ornament cuties in gold, colored them with shimmer watercolor paints, and fussy cut them out. I adhered them with foam tape at the end of the heat embossed bead strands and finished with some more sparkle with gold jewels!

I love the shine in this card and feel this would be a fabulous one to create multiples with lots of different color palettes!

Magical Birthday

Hello! Candice with you again this fabulous Monday! Today I have a fun magical birthday mini slimline card for you!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my mini slimline design:

I began my mini slimline with a 6 1/2 x 4 card base.

For the background, I first die-cut the cloud panel using the partial die-cut method (run through partway, rotate and line up, and run partway again!) to get the length I wanted for my mini slimline. I stamped my sentiment along the bottom and set it aside while I finished my inked panel.

For the inked background, I trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth to fit behind the cloud panel, inked it with seedless preserves, worn lipstick, spun sugar, and antique linen, and splattered it with white paint and gold shimmer spray.

Next, I stamped the girl, bunny, mushrooms, tree, ladybugs, butterflies, and clouds, colored them with Copic markers, and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out.

To put the card together, I layered the cover panel, with a few extra clouds cut from vellum tucked behind, and adhered with foam tape over the inked background. I then added all the cuties and accessories using foam tape to give dimension to the scene and finished with a few gold jewels!

If you want a little extra space a mini slimline allows you space to create and using the partial die-cut method gives you options to extend your dies to fit!

Making Spirits Bright!

Candice back with you this Monday with another Christmas card! I pulled the Joyous Holiday stamp set from Reverse Confetti stamps out last week (one of my favorites!) and I really wanted color up the cute angels in the set.

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I inked a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with prize ribbon & tumbled glass on top and kitsch flamingo & spun sugar on the bottom, and splattered it with white paint and gold shimmer spray with a damp paintbrush. I want to admit that when I first inked this panel I almost threw it away but I know how different it looks once you add splatter and cover it with cuties! So sometimes try and work through things even if you can’t see the end results!

Next, I stamped the angels, trees, and stars, colored them with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out. I then die cut the ‘CELEBRATE’ from tan velvet cardstock using foam tape to pop it up on the card front and then stamped the sentiment below it. I arranged the images around the ‘CELEBRATE’ and finished with a sprinkle of blue jewels!

I hope I have inspired you to get started on your Christmas cards!

Thanks for stopping by with me today!

‘Tis the Ski-son!

These cuties from Paperie Ink stamps are hitting the slope on my slimline card!

I used these products for my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I first heat embossed the sentiment in white, inked it with chipped sapphire, blueprint sketch, stormy sky, and tumbled glass, and splattered with white paint and gold shimmer spray.

I then die cut the mountains, inked them with brushed corduroy and antique linen, and topped them with glitter snowcaps. I also die cut the fence from antique linen inked paper and the boards from vintage photo and tucked them between snow hills cut from white cardstock.

Next, I stamped the images from the stamp sets listed above, colored them with copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I adhered them to the snow hills either with glue or foam tape to give dimension and finished with some stickles to give glitter snow to tie into the snowcaps!

Thank you so much for visiting!

Thanks & Giving

I sometimes like to use pattern paper just to help me get my color palette down, like I did on this slimline card! These are definitely not my typical colors and it was nice to use some of my ignored Copic markers. They go perfectly with the Fall cuties from Paperie Ink stamps!

I used these products on my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I first trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth a little smaller than my card front, inked it with rusty hinge, fossilized amber, and scattered straw, and splattered it with white paint, gold shimmer spray, and brown spray using a damp paintbrush.

While that dried, I used my neglected Cameo, created the THANKSGIVING and cut it out of the pattern paper and the back which happened to be dark brown. I glued them together offsetting them a little to help the pattern stand out. I adhered it near the top with foam tape and stamped my sentiment along the bottom.

Next, I stamped the foxes, crows, pumpkins, leaves, sunflowers, and hats from the stamp sets listed above, colored them with Copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I arranged them with foam tape above the sentiment and around the THANKSGIVING and finished with a few gold jewels!

If you are ever struggling on what colors to use, pull out some of your pattern papers and see if they inspire you!

Wishing You Joy!

Candice back with you today and I again had to play with Reverse Confetti’s new September release, this time with the Christmas products! This new tree die is perfect to highlight (and use again!) your cross stitch panels with gorgeous different patterns! There is enough space to do all the fun detail stitches for a stunning Christmas card!

I used these Reverse Confetti products to create my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I first trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock to fit a little smaller than my card front and die cut the tree near the top making sure to center it. I then die cut the cross stitch panel and created my stitched design lining it up behind the openings in the tree. I then adhered the tree panel with foam tape over the cross stitched piece and used foam tape to add to the front of my card.

Next, I stamped the crib, colored it with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut it out. I then cut the ray die and ‘peace’ from gold foil cardstock and the ‘peace’ shadow from blue shimmer cardstock.

To put the card together, I glued the ray down and added the layered ‘peace’ and crib with foam tape and simply stamped the sentiment beneath!

I hope you are inspired to try a cross stitch pattern or come up with a design to use behind this amazing tree!

Thank you for stopping by with me today!

Ahoy Matey!

These have to be my all time favorite pirates! This set is one from the new release from Paperie Ink stamps called Ahoy Matey and I used them on a CAS slimline card to highlight just how cute they are!

I used these products to create my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

Next, I stamped the pirates and accessories, colored them with copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I then die cut the stitched panel from Bristol Smooth cardstock and glued to the front of my card base.

For the top scene, I die cut the wave from teal cardstock, used foam tape to adhere to the edge, and tucked the boat and pirate behind. I finished the top scene with the sentiment and a few teal jewels.

For the bottom scene, I repeatedly stamped the sentiment along the side, trimmed a piece of Kraft cardstock adhering with foam tape, and adding the pirates and accessories around. I finished with a few more teal jewels!

I truly have fallen for these cute little pirates and you should see the rest of them in the Ahoy Matey set and while you are there, check out the latest release!

Thank you for visiting with me today!
