Roses for Loll

Hello there.  It’s a special day for my crafty friend, Loll, because it’s her birthday! 🎉🎁🛍🎂🎈  Using new Roses stamp set from Reverse Confetti and knowing she loves pink, I created this.


Stamped the image on alcohol marker friendly cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then coloured it in bright colours with Copic Sketch markers.  For some detailing, die cut it with the Blanket Stitched Rectangle die from Pinkfresh Studio.


The sentiment from the same set was then stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.  Embellished it with some pink Bright Jewels from Memory Box to finish.


Happy birthday, Loll!  Hope you have a fabulous day.  Thank you for dropping by.

Make a Wish

Hello there.  It’s my niece’s birthday today.   Unbelievable how quickly 17 years has flown by!  Hope she doesn’t think this CAS (clean and simple) birthday card is too young for her. 😂


The sweet bunny from Mama Elephant Up with Love was in my stash.  It was previously stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto alcohol marker friendly cardstock, coloured with Copic Sketch markers then die cut out with its coordinating die at the same time when I created this card for my nephew… I wasn’t sure which image I was going to use.  


Next, stamped the sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Shenanigans with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder on a stitched Bristol panel also from my stash.  Applied Saltwater Taffy distress ink with a blender brush for the background then splattered with water and blot with a paper towel for a bit of texture.  Assembled the card onto a white card base then added highlights/details with a white gelly roll pen to finish. 



Her birthday also happens to fall on Father’s Day, so hope she enjoys sharing her special day with her dad.  Thank you for dropping by.  Have a wonderful day.

CAS Christmas June Reminder - Wreath

Hello there.  This is the reminder post for this month’s WREATH challenge at CAS Christmas.


Here’s my card.


That cute little puppy in the wreath image is from Yappy Woofmas stamp set by Mama Elephant (ME). Stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on alcohol marker friendly cardstock that was die cut out with the Blanket Stitched Rectangle die from Pinkfresh Studio.  Coloured it with Copic Sketch markers then added clear shimmer to the berries and bow for a bit of sparkle. 


The letters were die cut next from Bristol paper and black cardstock using Block Alphabet dies from SugarPea Designs.  Offset them for a drop shadow, then adhered them to the panel.  To finish, stamped the sentiment from Waffle Flower Oversized Joy with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.


Since I’m behind on my Christmas card stash, I made a second card using Bold Alphabet dies from Altenew on this one.


The challenge ends in one week on June 24 PST.  To see more inspirations, head on over to the challenge blog HERE.  Thank you for stopping by.
