Make me smile....!!

Hey everyone....

Ashlee here with you today and I have a new card to inspire you with using one of the latest release stamps "A whale of a time"!!

These whales are super cute and they have lots of fun sentiments to go with them...


To create this card I first started off with a stencil from Catherine Pooler called Spotlight and using some WOW! embossing ink I covered the stencil and then embossed it with WOW! Bang embossing powder!!


I coloured us the gorgeous image with Copics and then mounted it onto the base with a double layer of glue dots....

Using some WOW! opaque bright white powder I heat embossed the "You always make me smile" sentiment on black cardstock, cut it into three pieces and mounted that on the card using foam tape for extra dimension....

A touch of sparkly sequins finished it off!!

I hope you enjoyed this new card, I sure had fun creating it...
Happy crafting to all, Hugs Ashlee. 

Guess What is coming to the Shop? It's Sneaky!!



Hello and Happy Friday Crafty Friends!  Tina here with some exiting news!!  Today I get to share a Sneak Peek at a New stamp set coming soon to the shop:)  This set will be available at the Gerda Steiner Designs Shop next week, so keep a look out:)  My project is a sweet Hello & Hi card with the.....drum roll please...... Sneaky Raccoons Stamp Set by Gerda Steiner Designs.  Isn't it just the cutest!!  I just love these adorable sneaky critters, the fun scenes they can create and love that the sentiments are customizable too:) 


I highlighted both the hello and hi sentiment by using gold embossing powder on the wood sign and the background panel.  I added a splash of color by doing some ink blending. I used 3 oxide inks in the colors worn lipstick, scattered straw and cracked pistachio.  I added a frame around the sweet raccoon with a bit of foam tape of course:)  I just love how it turned out and hope you do to!



Thanks so much for stopping by!  If you would like to see how I created this card check it out down below just click on the link.🙂  Have a Fantastic and Crafty day!  Hugs, Tina

Halloween Kiddos

Happy Thursday!  I’m Allison Cope.  Everyone needs that non-scary Halloween card for someone special!  So instead of creating a scary card, try making a whimsical one instead.

For my card I used the adorable witch and tiger trick-or-treaters from the “Halloween Kids Digital Stamp Bundle”.  This bundle has a ton of Halloween digital images plus images to make a spooky scene too!

I colored in my kiddos with Polychromos Pencils and then added a soft Wilted Violet Distress Oxide back drop.  So simple and not scary at all!

Hope you too get a chance to create this week!
