Well I really wanted to use this beautiful Flamingo this time. So I stamped the Flamingo and the wing from the New Vacation Stamp Set onto white cardstock with black ink. I colored them in with my Copic Markers. Next, I cut them out with the Vacation Sweet Cuts. I added the wing with a little bit of foam tape. I also used a pink Prismacolor Colored Pencil for the shadows. I was going to make a tag well I kinda did. I cut out the Sweet Cuts Tag with some white cardstock. I ink blended it with a blue, pink, and peach colored ink for a fun sunset water background. I used the waves stamped image from the New Another Day in Paradise to stamp in Uncharted Mariner Distress ink onto my tag.

I cut out some kraft cardstock and ink blended it with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink. I stamped the waves in Uncharted Mariner Distress ink to make a full and fun background. I stamped my sentiment onto my tag with Uncharted Mariner Distress ink. I glued my Flamingo to my tag. I then added some clouds from Another Day in Paradise, one with foam and the other 2 with liquid glue. I added my tag with foam tape and and added my panel to a A2 card base. I used a black Gelly Roll pen for the eye, feet, and nose of the Flamingo. I flickered some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink Spray and Picket Fence Distress Spray Stain to my card carefully without getting my Flamingo. That finishes my card I hope you like it!

I was inspired by some Flip Flops I saw recently. So there is my inspiration. I used this Beautiful Stamp set from Pink and Main called Stay Cool. I stamped and heat embossed the image onto Fabriano Hot Press Watercolor 140lb. paper. I colored it in with my Tombow Water Based Markers. When I was done with my coloring I cut it out with the Stay Cool Coordinating dies.

I used the Surfs Up Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs for my background. I ink blended it on Hammermill cardstock with Pinkfresh Studio Sunshine ink and Mermaid Lagoon distress Oxide ink. I then cut out my ink blended cardstock with the Pink and Main Mod Stitched Rectangle Dies using the largest die. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the Stay Cool Stamp Set. I cut it out with the coordinating die. I love that the sentiments have coordinating dies. I layered the sentiment on black cardstock for a little depth. I added my panel to a A2 card base and glued my image which was layered on black cardstock. I like the look of a little depth without using foam tape. I finished my card adding some blue sequins.

August we will be celebrating all month long and there will be giveaways on the Paper Sweeties Blog. I have a video for you today and all New Paper Sweeties supplies will be listed down below for you!

I started out with Fabriano Hot Pressed cardstock. I stamped and heat embossed these beautiful Palm Trees from the New Vacation Stamp Set so that I could water color using my Karin Brush Markers. I place ink onto a stamp block and use a paint brush to add water and ink to my stamped image. I had a lot of fun coloring them. I then used the coordinating Vacation Sweet Cuts to cut them out. I made my background using a googled image I had seen with Palm Trees. I just Bristol Smooth cardstock and my Karin markers to doodle and blend with water and a paint brush. I added some gold paint splatters for fun. I cut my panel down and layered it with black cardstock. I added my background layers to a A2 card base.

I placed my card base into my Misti and stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from Another Day in Paradise. They are 2 separate sentiments that I put together. Super Easy. Lastly, I added a sun and cloud using the dies from Another Day in Paradise Sweet Cuts. I then glued my Palm Trees and added some clear liquid drops. I hope you like it.

Meow Cat

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. I have some cards I made using the New Meow Cat stencil that were super easy to make using A Colorful Life Designs August 2022 Release. I will have supplies and a coupon code down below for you!

I chose to do two cards just with different ink colors. On this card, I used Lunch Bag cardstock from Brutus Monroe with Bubblegum ink. I ink blended it with my large blending brush. When I was done ink blending I used a retired stitched rectangle die set from My Creative Time to cut it out. I then used the largest scalloped rectangle die to cut out pink cardstock to layer my stenciled background. I then glued everything to a A2 card base. I flicked some Metallic paint in Silver and Unicorn from LH Colors with my paint brush onto my panel and added some Soft Pink liquid drops to finish my card.

On this card I did the same except I used Seafoam ink and added some Sky blue liquid drops to match this panel. I felt I didn’t need a sentiment and I could always stamp inside when ready to gift. I hope you like my cards. Use my coupon code VonFan10 to save 10% off your purchase of stencils. Check out the Newest Release here.

Scoops Of Love!

Hi everyone! I hope your having a great day. I have a Sweet card to share that I made for Doodles Paper Playground for my Guest Design Month. I will have details and supplies listed down be low for you.

Do you love Neapolitan Ice Cream? I do. Ever since I was a little girl. I used Sparkle Blends Neapolitan for my card and I knew I would have to do a traditional Ice Cream card. I first used a embossing folder stamp and die set from Sizzix with white cardstock for my background panel. I cut it to be A2 size before running it through my Spellbinders Platinum machine. I began cutting out my scoops, cherry, and cone from My Creative Time Retired Set You Make Life Sweet Stamp and Die Set. It is a older set from my stash. I used colored cardstock from my stash.

I ink blended the chocolate pieces to look darker with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and the Cherry with Pinkfresh Studio Berrylicious ink. I glued my scoops to my cone and added it to my panel with foam tape. On pink cardstock, I stamped my sentiment from the same set by My Creative Time. I cut it into a fish tail banner and added it to my panel with foam tape. I ink blended pieces of my panel, Ice Cream Cone, and sentiment with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and my blending tool. I love the Neapolitan Sparkle Blends so much I placed a bunch on my card. My panel was added to a A2 card base. I hope you like it. It was so much fun to make and I need one of these treats to enjoy. Don’t you?? I have one more project for Doodles Paper Playground I hope you have enjoyed them. Check out the Amazing blends here.

A Colorful Life Designs August 2022 Release

Hello. Happy August. I hope you are doing well. I’m super excited for the New Release today. 16 NEW Designs. So much fun! I have a few cards to share using the New Lover Boy Stencil and Furry Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs August 2022 Release. I will have supplies, a video, and a coupon down below for you!

Here is the first card I made. I think these dogs are so cute from the New Lover Boy Stencil. I ink blended using Gina K Designs Honey Mustard ink on Hammermill cardstock. When I was done ink blending, I flickered some gold paint using Starry Colors from Gansai Tambi. I cut my cardstock to be A2 size. I added it to a A2 card base. I stamped my Taylored Expressions Woof sentiments onto kraft cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating die. I added 2 strips with foam strips to my card front. I added sequins to match, super easy.

On this card I ink blended the dogs with black ink on Hammermill cardstock. I just wanted to do a border of them for a different look. I chose to color their bows and hearts with Copic markers. I used the New Furry Stencil for my sentiment using black ink. I cut out my cardstock to be A2 size and added it to a A2 card base. I inked around the edges with my blending brush. I added some heart enamel stickers to finish this card.

I chose to make another card just because I love this stencil. I ink blended on Hammermill cardstock with Aspen, Espresso, and Sunshine ink. I alternated my inks to have all 3 shown. I love this color combo, not my typical combo. I flickered some metallic paint splatters using LHColors in Gold and Limeade over my panel for a fun look.

I cut my cardstock with a Taylored Expressions Die. It was bigger than an A2 panel so I placed my die over it to cut it to the right size. I glued my panel to a A2 card base. I then added a white heat embossed sentiment strip from Taylored Expressions Woof Stamp and added it with foam tape. I then placed some sequins from Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends in Sunflower. That finishes my cards. I hope you like them.

I first stamped all my images out onto Neenah Solar White cardstock 80lb. with Honey Bee Stamps Black ink. I used my Misti to stamp multiple images. I colored them in with my Copic markers, I wanted them to look soft and I hope I achieved that look. I then cut my images out with the coordinating dies and fussy cut the groups of stars and hearts. I used the Balloons Stencil on a whole sheet of Hammermill cardstock from A Colorful Life Designs. I ink blended with Rose Water and Macaron ink to match my Hamsters. I flickered some Metallic paint over my ink blended panels for fun. I would position my stencil so that I could easily make 2 Slimline cards with it. I used inks Rose Water, Macaron, and Dried Fig inks with Pinkfresh Studio Brushed sentiments Stamp and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I used a Scallop Slimline die from Stamps Of Life to cut out my ink blended panels. I then glued everything onto Slimline Card bases.

Embossed Butterfly Cards and Matching Envelopes

Hello everyone! I have some cards and matching envelopes I made using Embossing Folders and Butterfly coordinating dies. I will have details and and supplies listed down below.

I played with Embossing Folders from Simon Say Stamp for my cards today. On, this card I used Magnolia Branches and the Graceful Butterfly Set. I love how the Graceful Butterfly Set comes with cutting dies. I would cut out my butterfly pieces with white cardstock. I would Spray them with a little bit of water and run them with the Graceful Butterfly embossing folder through my die cutting machine. I used my Simon Says Stamp Detail brushes with Catherine Pooler Chiffon ink, Catherine Pooler Lemon Whip, Twilight Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated ink, and Mint from Pinkfresh Studio. I ran my white cardstock A2 size through my diecutting machine with the Magnolia Branches Embossing folder. I ink blended it to match my butterflies.

I added my panel to a A2 card base and added a butterfly with foam tape and glued the one with liquid glue. I added a silver foil black sentiment strip from my stash with a foam strip. Lastly, I added clear sequins and embossed a envelope to match.

On this card I used the Geometric Lattice Embossing Folder with the Graceful Butterfly Set. I did the same thing cut the butterflies first, spray them with water, and emboss them with the Graceful Butterfly set. I used inks Bubblegum and Morning from Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated inks. I also used some Catherine Pooler Grape Crush. I used my detailed brushes to get in the Nooks and Crannies. I ran my white cardstock A2 size through my embossing folder-Geometric Lattice as well as a envelope.

I added my butterflies with liquid glue and my foiled sentiment strips with foam tape. I added clear sequins and added my panel to a A2 card base.

On this card I used the Magnolia Branches again with the Graceful Butterfly Set. After running my butterflies through the embossing folder I ink blended lightly with Bubblegum and Morning ink and Pinkfresh Studio Mint ink for the leaves. I ink blended my embossed matching panel to match. I thought this one looked good with a white embossed envelope. I added a foiled sentiment on glossy white cardstock sentiment with foam strips onto my panel. I molded my butterflies a little to have some more dimension before gluing them. I then added some clear sequins before adding it to a A2 card base.

On my last card I used my leftover ink blended butterflies. I glued them to a white Geometric Lattice A2 panel and added my gold foiled sentiment strip with a foam strip. I added my panel to a A2 card base and added clear sequins. I hope you like my card sets. Which one is your favorite? I ad fun making all of them.

Candyland

Hello everyone! I hope your doing great today. This is my last sample for A Colorful Life Designs July 2022 Release. I hope you have enjoyed all my projects for July. August Release will be fun too! As always I have so much fun making cards with stencils. The Possibilities are endless and this month I used my gel press for a lot of my projects for . I will have supplies and a coupon listed for you down below.

I used the New Candyland Stencil, it’s so pretty and I plan on making holiday cards with it next time.

On this card I used Candyland Stencil, Gel Press, brayer, and Stampin’ Up Ink Pad in Lost Lagoon ink. I place my 5×7 gel press in my Misti and apply ink all over. I use my brayer and lay my Candyland Stencil over it. I use my brayer again and lift my stencil up. I place white cardstock over it and lift my cardstock to find beautiful results. I cut out my background using a rectangle die. I added a gold foiled sentiment that was layered with black heavyweight cardstock and some sequins. My panel was then added to a A2 card base.

This one is my favorite. I used Stampin’ Up ink in Perfect Plum and Lost Lagoon. I did the same process. I like the look of more than 1 ink as well. I cut it out with a A2 rectangle die and added it to a card base. I added sequins and a pre made metallic sticker sentiment that I layered with cardstock. I cut my sentiment with a paper trimmer and added it with a foam strip. Lastly, I added sequins. I hope you like both my cards. Thank you for stopping by!

You’re The Best

Hello everyone! I hope your doing great. I have another card for My Guest Design at Doodles Paper Playground. I will have details down below for you!

I had to do another shaker card. A Lemon and Blueberries Shaker Card. So I chose this New Lemon Die that I purchased called Lemon Zest from Spellbinders. I used Circle dies from Waffle Flower Crafts for my Blueberries. My motivation came from a Cosmetic Bag that I had seen at Marshalls while shopping with my Crafty Friend Tina. I did my card from memory so I left a few things out like strawberries but that’s okay maybe next time I can recreate it better. I used Hammermill cardstock to ink blend my background pink like the Cosmetic Bag using Guava from Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated ink. I cut out my background with a stitched A2 rectangle. I ink blended the rest of my Hammermill cardstock with inks using Catherine Pooler Chiffon, Lawn Fawn Clover, Pinkfresh Studio Sunshine, Lawn Fawn Freshly Cut Grass, and Simon Says Stamp Twilight Pawsitively Saturated ink.

I ran the dies on the ink blended areas to retrieve all the die-cuts needed for this card.

I glued all my die-cuts together and glued my lemons and blueberries onto my pink ink blended A2 panel. I used a A2 clear card sleeve to make my shaker pouch. I used a tape runner to fold my sleeve tight around my card. I trimmed a little off the top and begin placing Lemonade Sparkle Blends into it. I placed a few blue and green sequins from Twilight Meadow Sparkle Blends to match my leaves and Blueberries. I love the clay pieces and the blends, they are just fabulous. I used my tape runner to secure my shaker pouch. I then added my shaker panel to a A2 card base. I added a gold foil strip sentiment from my stash and that finishes my card. I hope you like it.
