365 Cards: Sending Wishes Your Way

Welcome to another JAX Starz Blog Hop! This month we decided to use our new 2015-17 In Colors!
You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Rose Ann Marr's blog.  You can follow the full blog hop lineup below to move along from blog to blog, so you can see all of the new projects.

 
I wasn't too sure about the new In Colors until I had them in front of me to play with... they are fantastic! In order my favorites are Tip Top Taupe, Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder, Delightful Dijon, and Mint Macaron.


I think you will love them too... you should try them out! Links to purchase can be found below! :)

Some Stampin' Tips:

  • "Stamping Off". On this particular card, I used a technique referred to as "stamping off" to stamp the leaves behind the butterfly. To "stamp off" you ink your stamp once, then stamp with it multiple times. The result is that the color fades a little bit each time after the initial stamped image as the ink leaves the stamp!
  • Matting. I often mat the different layers of my cards to give them a little definition. One here I used Tip Top Taupe behind my Whisper White cardstock with the stamped leaves. It sets it off just a little bit and gives it definition. I typically cut my cardstock mats 1/16" or 1/8" larger than the cardstock I am trying to mat.
  • A Little Bling... Goes a long way! It's fun to add a few pieces here and there to add something extra to your card. Don't be afraid to add a few embellishments to your cardd to make it sparkle.
Alright, that's all I have today's hop..... the next stop is Amy Unick on this month's Jax Starz Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and I'll see you next time!

365 Cards: Thanks You Made My Day!

In honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday, here's a fun (not quick!) card I made!


To make this card, I stamped a bunch of stars, glued them all together, and then ran them through my big shot to cut out the word "thanks." I then backed it with a scrap strip of Whisper White Cardstock to make the word stand out on the card.

A little embossed sentiment stamped on the stars finished it off!I had a lot of fun making this one and will definitely be repeating it in the future with these awesome word framelits! :)

365 Cards: Let's Get Away!

I love this stamp set so much and I've been dying to make a card with it... and I finally did! :)


When I finally sat down to make a card, fortunately I had the new Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper sitting right in front of me -- it was an instant lightbulb moment for me to use this patterned paper for this card!


Can't wait to give this to my husband at some point... this one is definitely heading into my personal card stash! :)

365 Cards: For Baby

As I am writing this, I think it's kinda hilarious that I have so many baby cards the last few weeks! I tend to make a dozen or so cards every time I sit down to craft anymore... so it's funny to me that they have all stacked up here on the blog as one after the other!


Good thing I have three baby shower gifts on the horizon in the near future! I'm totally stocked up now! :)


I kept this one simple by using our fun new Designer Series Paper called A Cherry on Top paired with our fun Baby's Firsts Framelits! The cute little flower? I stamped one of the hexagons from the Six-Sided Sampler stamp set, then punched it out with my itty bitty flower punch to add a girly accent.  This card could easily be made boy-ish by die cutting a tie with this set of framlits! :)


And this stamp set was perfect for finishing the inside of the card -- so many fantastic options with this stamp set. Speaking of which.... hop on over to check out all the other awesome cards this week from the What Will You Stamp? design team.... you won't want to miss seeing all the great ideas for this versatile stamp set!!

365 Cards: Congratulations on Your Little Addition

Welcome to another JAX Starz Blog Hop! This month we decided to use a fun sketch!
You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Rose Ann Marr's blog.  You can follow the full blog hop lineup below to move along from blog to blog, so you can see all of the new projects.



 I had a request from someone to make a baby card recently, so this is what I made! :)


I added a little sentiment on the inside to finish it up!



And here is the sketch we all used this month!


Some Stampin' Tips:
  • Layer color on color by using texture. On this particular card, I defaulted to one of my favorite techniques-- cutting my card base, then cutting from the same piece of cardstock a piece that is 1/4" smaller and then dry embossing that piece with my Big Shot.
  • Use up scraps. I had the Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper out for another project so I used up some scraps on this card! Cards are a great way to use up those little bits of your patterned paper!
  • Using sketches. I love sketches when I'm stuck for what to make. This stamp set always stumps me (even though I love it!) so this sketch was a perfect way to make me use the set. I just pulled the stamps out and arranged them on my card pieces I had cut until I found an arrangement I liked. Sometimes it works well to look at a sketch and see what stamps you might have that will fit that sketch!
Alright, that's all I have today's hop..... the next stop is Beka Laing on this month's Jax Starz Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and I'll see you next time!

365 Cards: Another Thanks Lobster!

If you've been around here a bit, you know how much I love me some lobster stamps on my cards! Well... I have another one to share here today! :)


I just can't help myself! Even Brian has noticed how much I love this lobster stamp... he told me so the second he saw this card! :)


This is the first of many cards from me that you will see featuring our new In Colors for 2015-16! For this particular card, I used Tip Top Taupe (my new favorite neutral color!) for the card base, the Watermelon Wonder for my beloved lobster, and Cucumber Crush for the coral stamp.  Aren't they gorgeous?! They will be available tomorrow for purchase.... make sure you add them to your wish list and let me know if you'd like to order some!

365 Cards: Congrats to You Two

Of all the kinds of cards I make, I think the wedding cards are my favorite! :)


Since I have no weddings to attend on the horizon, I wanted to pick some more neutral wedding colors... light tiffany-style blue, neutrals and pink hearts? It will work for any wedding! :)

 

And yes, I did go a little crazy with the white embossing.... but I think it worked out well!
