Fun with Kate Hadfield's Inspiration Template #5

This is a free digital template that looks like this from Kate Hadfield...
and after playing with some of her kits (Jump for Joy, Doodled Journalers Kraft#3, Everyday Alpha, All the Everydays and Doodled Pocket Frames) I made a cute page for my daughter and her friends first sleepover. They had so much fun!
Have you ever worked with a template...Try this one it is great...

Insider Online Card Classes 4th Card

This card was a lot of fun to make and I am hoping Kristina Werner will be doing a mail call for winter cards down the road I would like to send her this one. It is made with the CTMH stamp set Poster Tidings the stamp of the month for September. I used the swirl embossing folder on the background ( I love this one) and the circle was cut from one of the MFT blueprints die and snowflake from them as well ( I really like the stitch line around it). I used viva decor pen that was iridescent on the snowflake too. Also have to have some stitching around the outside for Kristina! On the inside I used some letter stickers from the SSS Card Kit for Sept. and a hero arts Christmas stamp set that I masked off some of the sentiment to just have the THE stamped like the front chalkboard and the rest of the sentiment with a few gems around it for the finishing off of the card. I am submitting this for the SImon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Insider Online Card Classes 3rd Card

This card took me a bit out of my comfort zone. But really fun to play with the distress stains and artsy stamps... Double stamped the sentiment and then similar on the inside as well. It was fun and I really do like the result. What do you think? I am submitting this for the SImon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Insider Online Card Classes 2nd Card

I made this card for a good friend of mine who had a birthday recently. The items on the left are die cuts and tehn I stamped the sentiment in white first and then in the color to appear shadowed and to get the true ink color to show (everything seems muted on kraft card stock). I added a strip of colored cardstock and wash tape. Then in the inside I continued with the washi tape and sentiment stamped the same way.

Insider Online Card Classes 1st Card

This card I mostly made from the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for Sept. I love how the outside and inside look together...More than likely will be sending this to my daughter Lindsay at college although Jaclyn said she wished her birthday was sooner and that she loved it! So we will see... Love them all so much it is hard to pick...
I die cut a zig zag Circle from Lifestyle crafts using the 6x6 paper that was included in the kit. The saying comes from a paper too. I split them apart to add part to the inside. I don't know if you can see but for the front I put blue gel pen dash lines through the word Happy and then colored in the word Love with a distress marker. My girls love blue so that is why I used that color instead of red. I cut the die cut to be coming in from the side and used some of the leftover for the inside and cut the inside message to a banner cut. On the front I finished it off with a sunny yellow Viva Decor pen. Any changes you would make? I seem to agonize over everything anymore...

SSS Stamptember Challenge 2013

The challenge is to celebrate STAMPtember® and use a product from the Simon Says Stamp Store. The first card I did was super simple using the happy die and I cut the Birthday off of the big stamp of the HAPPY EVERY DAY. I cut the happy 3 times. Two times out of cardstock that I colored with peacock feathers distress ink and then to get the super shiny green piece I adhered a take 5 gum wrapper to cardstock and cut it out with my big shot. I then used the *Tsukineko GOLDEN GLITZ Delicata Pigment Ink Pad to stamp the Birthday. I love the results! How about you? Have you ever used a gum wrapper to die cut?

Cards in a set

Gosh I don't know why it has been so long since I posted but life just never seems to slow down! SO I will be back soon with my Week in our life that I am putting together from Ali Edwards. Anyway today I am posting some cards I made as a set for my 2nd cousin who is turning 93 tomorrow! She can not see very well so I made the sentiments big and she still loves to write cards so this will give her some to send to her friends. It is unbelievable but I wish she were here but I will have to be consoled to send her some cards, candy,and bath soap! So here is a set I put together for her... I was playing around with a background stamp and different colors. Then I just added a simple big Thanks and Happy Birthday...Cards you can never have too many of! I think I like the grey with the white letters. How about you? Let me know what you think.
