Strawberry Lovers Card

6 Feb

Hello all..I have a fun little card to share today.

This is using a digi stamp from Jessica Weible Illustrations called Strawberry Girl.

You can find the digital stamp here.

What I did to make this card unique is that I took the digital stamp of the strawberry on the girl’s shirt and used it as a template to make the strawberry out of polymer clay.

After the strawberry was done cooking, I adhered a bail to the back of it and turned it into a necklace.  I poked a hole in the card front and had the strawberry line up on the shirt where the stamp is.

What little girl wouldn’t be excited about a card like this?

If you have not been over to Jessica Weible’s site and had a look at all her fun digital images, you are really missing out!

I hope you have enjoyed this card, it was a lot of fun to make!

I am off to create more things!  Hope you have a great day and a wonderful week!


Sweet Stamps Red, Green & Gold Challenge

8 Nov

Well it is time for another Sweet Stamps challenge.

This one is pretty easy!

Red, Green and Gold.

I used the Strawberry Border Large  and the Flower Tree embossing folder for this card.

You might wonder if the Strawberry Stamp is really so small?

The Strawberries you see here are at about 50% of their actual size.

I stamped the image on to some Grafix Arts Shrink Film and then shrunk the images after I colored and cut them.

The shiny red and green metallic papers are also from Grafix Arts called Metallic Foil Board.

I also made this adorable ring with the Strawberry Border Large and Shrink Film.

This is my little 4 year old’s hand.

The ring is a bit tricky to make..but isn’t it the cutest thing?

Here are some different angles.

See the tiny Strawberries?  Remember these are about 50% of their actual stamped size.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s post.  I love trying to create things that will inspire you.

Be sure to check out the Sweet Stamps blog to see the other Design Team Members Red, Green & Gold projects.

Join our challenge and be entered to win a $20.00 certificate to the Sweet Stamps store.

Have a great day!

My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy

15 Apr

I have been working on some cards for the Core’dinations Design Team Call.

I put the finishing touches on these and I am getting ready to submit these to CORE’DINATIONS.

Wish me luck, I am sure the competition will be fierce, in a friendly way:)

This is my first card.  I made this with the CORE’DINATIONS VINTAGE FLOWER POWER collection paper.

This paper is so gorgeous.  It has the look and feel of linen.  The colors for the core are rich and beautiful.

Here is a side view and a close up of my ribbon and flowers.

I used a piece of the Graphics 45 paper for the focal point, I love how all the colors came together on this card.

This card I made with a piece from the WHITEWASH COLLECTION.

I love all the summer colors on this.

I have sprinkled my fruits with my PK GLITZ glitter.

The WHITEWASH paper is fun to work with.  It reminds me of paper sprinkled with powdered sugar.

Now we have arrived at my last entry. 

For this card, I wanted to show you that you can use this metal dies to EMBOSS with.

I took my Oriental ButterflyDoily and before running it through my big shot, I placed the thinner of the 2 EMBOSSING PADS on top of my paper.

The sandwich, for the BIG SHOT, would be Multi Purpose Platform on TAB 1, Acrylic plate, die facing up, paper right side up, embossing pad, acrylic plate and then you are ready to roll it through the machine.

The Rubber Embossing pad stops the die from actually cutting.

I used 3 different papers for this butterfly.  I love the way it looks.

If you have any thin metal dies, like the CHEERY LYNN DESIGNS, experiment by embossing with them.

With the CORE’DINATIONS lines of paper you really can’t fail.

Wish me luck, I truly would love to work with CORE’DINATIONS, wouldn’t you??

Have a great weekend, go make a card, have fun and come back and visit me soon:)

Look what you can own!!
