365 Cards: May the Magic of the Season...

Okay, so forgive me for behaving like Target and bombarding you in August with Christmas cards... it's still a little early for these for me too, but I just couldn't help myself and had to use this cute little scotty dog on a Christmas card!

So yep, officially my first Christmas card for this holiday season. It's actually a catalog case from our new Holiday Catalog! I changed up a few things, including the addition of the little guy!


So there you have it... the holidays are quickly creeping up on us! :)

365 Cards: A Gift for Baby

Welcome to another JAX Starz Blog Hop! This month we have a sketch challenge!
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.

Lots of baby cards around here lately... been going to lots of baby showers! I needed a quick easy card and I've been dying to use the Celebrate Today stamps and dies... they've been sitting on my desk for quite a while!


A quick wash of the background with my Aqua Painter and some Pool Party ink, then I stamped over it with the Gorgeous Grunge stamps. For such a simple card.... you probably wouldn't guess how many stamp sets I used on this one! :)

And here is the sketch we all used today:


It's a fun sketch... I hope you'll try it out! :)

Some Stampin' Tips:

  • Simple for the win. You don't have to put a lot on your card to make it complete... the key is to do some simple layers, limit the number of colors you use, and use lots of white space!
  • Shimmery White Paper. You can't really tell from the photos, but shimmery white paper is where it is at! It's the white background on this card and in person, you can see there are tons of little tiny specs of glitter embedded in the paper. It's an easy way to add some "wow" to your cards! :)
  • Fussy Cutting. That's the fancy name for an easy to use technique! I "fussy cut" that cute little monkey out! All that you do is stamp it and cut it out close to the image... easy as could be and a great way to add some fun accents to your projects!
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: 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! :)
