MUCHAS GRACIAS


Happy Monday friends!  I've got another card today using the Take a Peek & World of Thanks Sentiments stamp sets & the Wavy Lines stencil.  I stamped and die cut the zebra, set it aside while I worked on my card panel.  I ink blended some Uptown & Glam inks in the area of the die cut circle.  After getting a good blend, I placed the stencil over top and spritzed with Glimmer Spritz.  This created a bit of fun texture to the background.


I stamped the sentiment using midnight ink and added some black & white twine to finish off my card.

COLOR HUES # 28 - RED & KRAFT

Hi friends!  Welcome to my post for Color Hues Challenge #28!  This time we are challenging you to use Red & Kraft for your card or project.


I love using Red & Kraft for Christmas cards.  I created a mini slimline card using a stencil & die from Catherine Pooler.  The snowflake was created by sponging white pigment ink, I could have used some paste, but this was quick and easy to do and is also pretty flat for mailing.  I used the direct to paper technique to color my card stock and die cut the Merry Christmas from it.  Pretty simple card and easy to mass produce.

THANKS IN PORTUGUESE-OBRIGADO


Happy Friday friends!  I've got another card to share today using the new Global Adventure release.  This card features the Cheetah from the Take a Peek stamp set and coordinating die, some patterned paper from the Across the Globe paper pack and a sentiment in Portuguese from the World of Thanks Sentiments stamp set.  Of course, I had to use the new Luxe inks!


I stamped the sentiment using my Misti in rainbow Luxe colors.  I white heat embossed one sentiment onto a strip of black card stock so that I could add the peeking cheetah over top.


I added a strip of the Across the Globe patterned paper to the left side of my card.  I love this fun pattern with all the colors.

BE STRONG

Hi friends!  I'm still playing with the new Global Adventure goodies released yesterday from Catherine Pooler.

Today's card features the Take a Peek stamp set & the gorgeous Across the Globe Patterned Paper Pack.


I created a notecard size card and cut a strip of the gorgeous floral paper from the pack and added that to my card front.  I then stamped the giraffe using midnight ink and the sentiment using Glam ink.  A super simple card to create, but the patterned paper really shines on this card.


I love the images in this set!  I can't decide which one is my favorite.  It's a tie between the giraffe and zebra.

Hi friends!  Today's release day for Catherine's Global Adventure collection!  The release goes live in the shop this morning October 13th at 9 AM EST.  The new products are linked at the end of this post, but please note that the links will not be live until ordering opens.  
 
I've got another card today using the Take a Peek stamp set, 3 of the new Luxe inks & the amazing Half Circle Cover Plate Die.


This card features the Cheetah.  I used direct to paper to color some card stock, stamped the cheetah image using Midnight card stock and then die cut them out using the coordinating dies.  I die cut the cover plate from white card stock and glued it onto my card base to create some texture on my background.  I decided to color three of the half circles in the coordinating colors and add them to the background.  


The sentiment was white heat embossed on one of the Sentiment strip banner dies and added to the card using dimensional adhesive.

GLOBAL ADVENTURE AVAILABLE TODAY FOR STAMPNATION MEMBERS!!!

 

Hi friends!  Happy Tuesday!  The Global Adventure Collection is available today at Noon ET for StampNation members.  It will be available tomorrow for everyone!

I'm sharing another card today using the Take a Peek stamp set and the fun Half Circle Background stamp and coordinating cover plate die.


I just had to create a rainbow zebra!  I stamped the background stamp onto my card panel using Twilight ink.  I then used the die to emboss over top.  I love doing this technique with cover plate dies or any coordinating dies.  I used the new Luxe colors to blend over top the stamped zebra.


I created a circle frame from my Circles dies and stamped the sentiment onto one of the Sentiment Banner dies that I had ink blended using the same colors as the zebra.

CHEERS TO A GLOBAL ADVENTURE!!!!


Hi friends!  Today is the day that Catherine reveals the entire new release goodies over on her FB page.

Meet the newest release...GLOBAL ADVENTURE!

This release includes the 6 new Luxe inks plus some new stamps, dies, stencils and sequins.


My card today features the Take a Peek stamp set and coordinating dies along with the Half Circle Cover Plate die and the World of Thanks Sentiments stamp set!


I die cut the half circle cover plate die and die cut it from white card stock.  I kept the inside pieces and used direct to paper to color them using the Luxe inks.  I then added them back into the die cut piece.  So the front of the card is flat. 


I added the zebra stamped using Midnight ink and a sentiment white heat embossed on a strip of black card stock.

StampNation members shop EARLY...they shop tomorrow at 12 noon ET.  The CP shop goes live with all the new goodies on Wednesday at 9am ET.

I'll be back tomorrow with more Global Adventure fun!!!

PLAYING CARDS WITH MICHELE!!!

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to be Playing Cards with Friends today, especially with my dear friend, Michele from I Card Everyone.

Michele is not only talented and creative, she has a great sense of humor. You don't know how many times her funny card sentiments (all original, by the way) have made me laugh and brightened my day.  I had the wonderful honor of meeting Michele in person and sharing a delicious meal with her while visiting Michigan this summer.  She is as sweet as sweet can be!  I am so thankful for the opportunity to finally get to meet Michele in person and only wish it was for longer and that we could have crafted together.  Maybe someday that will still happen!

I'm honored and grateful for this invitation to play cards with you, Michele!

Here are the parameters for today's play:

All the Colors of Fall!

No Pumpkins, at all!  

Yet, when we meet, Halloween’s always a Treat!

And here's my card:


I created a super simple card today using some gorgeous fall colors.  I stamped a background stamp onto white card stock and then ink blended the colors.  I then used a circle die to cut a portion of the background.  I cut the circle in half so I had a spot for my sentiment.  Super fun and simple of create!

LUXE RAINBOW BIRTHDAY SLIMLINE CARD!!!


Hi friends!  Happy Sunday!  I've got another rainbow birthday card to share today using the Luxe inks coming Oct. 13th from Catherine Pooler.  This time I created a slimline card using the fun Mariner Stencil.


I used each of the new colors on this card.  I did a bit of masking on the stencil to get each of the circles a different color.  This was super simple to do with Heffy Doodle post it tape.


I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment onto one of the Sentiment Banner Dies and added a few Crater Lake sequins to finish off this card.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FEATURING CATHERINE POOLERS LUXE INK COLLECTION


Happy Saturday friends!  I've got another birthday card to share today using the new Luxe inks coming next week, Oct. 13th from Catherine Pooler Designs.  I have had a blast creating with these inks using some stencils in my stash.  This stencil is called All Linked Up!  I used all of the colors in the Luxe collection except for Deck the Halls which is a dark green.


The sentiment die is called the Celebrate Block Word die.  I die cut it twice from white card stock and once from black.  I glued them all together to create dimension.  Added a small black layer behind the inked/stenciled panel and finished off the card with some crater lake sequins.


Since there are new colors, a new color wheel was in order.  CLICK HERE to download the updated color wheel.
