I Chews You!

Hi everyone! I have a fun card to share. I’m finally getting into Valentine Crafting and I am in the process of moving into my Craft room. I hope to share more with you soon! Now here’s my card.

Well isn’t this Gumball Machine cu-te? I have my Cameo Silhouette set up now on a stand that rolls yay. So this SVG file was in my Silhouette Library that I purchased years ago called Gumball Machine So Much Pun by Doodlebug Design. I cut out all my pieces to build my Gumball Machine with colored 12×12 cardstock. I then put my gumball machine together. Some pieces like gray and dark gray I will use the lightest paper for all and then use my copic marker to color it darker. It saves time. I didn’t cut out enough gumballs so I just colored in my own gumballs using markers.

I used a rectangle A2 stitched die to cut out this fun striped pattern paper from a retired MFT 6×6 paper pack. I stamped and heat embossed this pun sentiment from Simon Says Stamp called I Chews You onto a banner strip on black cardstock with white embossing powder. I glued my gumball machine to my pattern paper and then onto a A2 card base. I added my sentiment with a foam skinny strip and then added that big gum ball. Lastly, I added some enamel dots and white gel accents. I hope you like my Valentine card. I had a lot of fun making it! I will also be able linking this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes!

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. I have a card to share using Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. I used Fur-ever Friends stamp set and the With Love Die set .

I had this cute fox and butterflies already stamped and cut out for me from last time. These images are from the Fur-ever Stamp set. I had colored them with my Copic markers and cut them out with my Brother Scan N Cut Machine. I then cut out my background panel using a rectangle A2 die from my stash. I then ink blended the cardstock with Flamingo Kitsch Distress Oxide ink.

I used my favorite die set, the With Love die set for my word sentiment. I cut it out with yellow cardstock and white cardstock. I glued my panel to a pink A2 card base. I popped up my butterflies with foam tape and glued my fox and word sentiment with liquid glue. Lastly, I added some clear sequins and used a gray copic marker to give my fox a grounding line. I hope you like my card for today. I had fun putting it together. I will have one more card for my guest design for sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps at the end of the week.

More Snowflakes!

Hi everyone! I have another Snowflake card today for Woodblock Wednesday. I love this fun Challenge that you can link up over on Amy Tsuruta’s Blog. I had fun making another snowflake card using non traditional colors and my woodblock stamps.

I first grabbed some white cardstock that I cut to a A2 size 4.1/4 x 5 1/2. I stamped Dear Friend using a Woodblock stamp in the center with Color Box ink in Candy(pink). I have had this stamp for so long, I was happy to use it. I then used a Snowflake Woodblock stamp from Hero Arts. I stamped it repeatedly with Catherine Pooler Matcha Ink and then with Catherine Pooler Crushed Violet ink.

I stamped the sentiment “Dear Friend” again on white cardstock with Candy ink and fussy cut it out. I then added foam tape to the back of it. I trimmed my panel to 4x 5.25 and glued it to a gray heavy weight card base 110lb. I added some translucent sequins and my sentiment and that finishes my card. I hope you like it. I had fun making it. I love getting use out of my woodblock stamps.

Heart Wreath Valentine Card

Hello everyone! I have a Valentine card to share using a New Stencil from A Colorful Life Design’s January 2023 Release called the Heart Wreath.

I love this stencil, it’s another favorite of mine from this release. I started out with pink cardstock and laid my Heart Wreath stencil over it. I used Nuvo Frosted Petal Glacier Paste to apply with a spatula. When it was dry I cut it out with a Mama Elephant scalloped circle die.

I cut out my scripty word sentiment using a die from Mama Elephant with Black cardstock. I glued my Circle background to a matching A2 card base. I glued my sentiment and cut the excess off with my scissors. Lastly, I added some pink sequins to match. I hope you like it. Use my coupon code VonFan10 to save 10% off your purchase.

With Sympathy

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. I’m back with another Guest Designing project for Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. This card is using a Beautiful Birds & Blooms Stamp Set, Typewriter Text Background, and With Love Word Die Set.

I first stamped my images from the Birds and Blooms Stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and cut out my images with the Brother Scan n Cut. I then colored my bird and blooms with Copic Markers. I used white cardstock and stamped the Typewriter Text Background with Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide ink using my Misti Stamping Platform. I cut out my background using a rectangle die from my stash

Next, I used the With Love Word die set using a the “with” and “Sympathy” words. I cut them out with white cardstock 3 times and with yellow cardstock 1 time. It’s never easy to make a Sympathy card but I feel this card has a lot of love to make anyone feel loved. I added foam tape to the back of my blooms and bird and adhered them to my rectangle panel. My panel was added to a blue heavyweight card base. I then added my word sentiments and sequins to match. I hope you like it. I will be back next week with more projects for Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.

Snowflakes!

Hello everyone! It had been a bit since I posted on my blog and thought today was a good day for it. I have been inspired by so many snowflake cards. So I made some snowflake cards and I will be making more. Earlier in the month it was inspired by trees and now snowflakes. It’s so good to be inspired and motivated don’t you think so?

I started out with heavy weight Karaft Cardstock 110lb. I used a Unity Stamp Co. Stamp set called Kindness is like snow for the snowflakes. I really love these rubber stamps. I stamped the snowflakes randomly in Versafine Onyx black ink and Gina K Designs White pigment ink. I love how they look and super easy to make your own backgrounds. I then used a retired MFT Rectangle die set to cut my panels out. I then used a Sizzix Tim Holtz Snowflakes 3D Impresslits that I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby. It’s a embossing folder that cuts out the shape. Super neat. So I did that with vellum. It has the large and small snowflake.

I then used silver glitter paper with a retired MFT Sweet Snowflakes die set. I left the snowflakes connected to each other and so I could cut out the 3 snowflakes at a time. I glued my snowflakes to my panels. I stamped some sentiments from Papertrey Ink called Just Sentiments:Snow on white cardstock in Versafine Black Onyx ink. I cut them to fit and attached them with foam tape. I glued my panels to Black A2 heavy weight card bases. I then added some glitter snowflake pops of color liquid drops. I hope you like them. I went and made 3 more just like this but they are Thank you cards that were given to my recipients in person.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope I inspired you!

Belated Birthday Wishes!

Hello everyone! I have my final blog post of the year. I hope you had a wonderful Holiday. I have a Belated Birthday card using the Mega Flower Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. We all forget right? but this card could make someone smile. I celebrated my Birthday all month! Hehe.

This stencil is a 6×8 Stencil and so Beautiful. I chose to make it a A2 card size but it would be so beautiful as a A7 card. I grabbed some white cardstock and ink blended my stencil with Seedless Preserves Distress ink cube, Dusty Concord Distress ink cube, and Antique Linen Distress ink cube for the center.

I then cut it out with a stitched A2 rectangle die. I decided to add some gold Nuvo Gilding Flakes to my panel. Who doesn’t love some gold shine right? and it’s a Birthday card. I would add liquid glue and rub on the flakes. Super easy. I then added my panel to a A2 card base. I added some pre-made sentiment strips from my stash popping one up with foam tape. Lastly, I added some sequins. I hope you like it, I love purple. Use my code VonFan10 to save 10% off your purchase.

LiteBrite Flowers

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. I have some cards to share using a Beautiful stencil from A Colorful Life Designs called LiteBrite Flowers.

I love this stencil it reminds me of having a Lite Brite machine when I was young. It would be so fun to have this card be interactive with a light. Don’t you think? On this card I used Transfer Duo Paste and Neon Rina K Designs Thermoweb Transfer sheets in Poppin Pink on white cardstock. I love how it turned out. I cut my panel smaller than a A2 size. and glued it to a A2 card base. I added a already pre-made gold foiled sentiment with foam tape. Lastly, I glued on some neon embellishments. I hope you like it.

On this card I did the same thing only I used black cardstock and a different pre-made gold foiled sentiment from my stash. I used Novo Drops in Pale Gold for my embellishments. This panel was a A2 size and added to a A2 black card base. I hope you like both my cards they were a lot of fun. Use my code VonFan10 to save 10% off.

I always enjoy using the Paper Sweeties Dolls and this one is Emma. She’s my favorite. I had her colored in already which was her hair and skin color which made this card really easy.

I colored it all in with my Copic Markers and fussy cut out the outfit to paper piece. I used the coordinating Sweet cuts to cut Emma out. I also used a black marker to clean up my edges before gluing it onto Emma. I stamped my sentiment onto white cardstock and colored in her shoes which I fussy cut also.

I also stamped and colored in her ear muffs from Warm Winter Wishes stamp set, I fussy cut them out and glued them to her ears. I think she looks cute and warm.

Celebrate The Season

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing good. I have a Christmas Card today using the Marvelous Masks Diamond Stencils from A Colorful Life Designs.

I love all the Marvelous Masks Stencils but when I seen this one Marvelous Masks Diamond I was super excited about it. I believe it’s from the November 2022 Release. On my card today I used stencil #4 on white cardstock with Nuvo Paste Golden Era. This paste is a favorite of mine.

When my paste dried I cut my panel down to 4×5.25 and glued it to a A2 card base. I thought it was pretty to add some Chipboard stickers from my stash. These ones are from Simple Stories Winter Cottage. They are another favorite of mine. I glued them to my panel and added a pre-made sentiment strip from my stash. Lastly, I added some sequins to match. I hope you like it. If shopping stencils use my code VonFan10 to save 10% off your purchase.

BYSH Cardmakers Sketch Challenge 29

Hello everyone? Have you been enjoying the New Sketch 29 Challenge? Hosted by BYSH Cardmakers. It’s definitely a fun one! I have a card to share using the New Sketch 29.

I chose to use this cut Yetti from Lawn Fawn called Yetti Or Not. I think he’s adorable don’t you? and perfect for the sketch. I stamped him in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him in with my Copic Markers as well as his accessories. I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut everything out.

I used some fun pattern paper from my stash called Simple Stories Feelin Frosty 6×8 paper pack for the Sketch. It was easier for me to use my paper trimmer and a ruler to complete the process. I stamped my sentiment from the stamp set and glued everything together using liquid glue for my A2 pink card base. I hope you like it and give this Sketch 29 a try. There is a lot of inspiration you will be able to see on Social media and the BYSH Cardmakers Blog.

Woodblock Wednesday!

Hello everyone! I have been inspired so much by Amy Tsuruta’s Woodblock Series that I thought this time I would participate in her Woodblock Wednesday for December 7, 2022.

I made 2 cards! I chose to use this Christmas Tree Woodblock stamp that I believe is from Michaels. I love the look of colored pencils on colored cardstock. I stamped and heat embossed the tree stamp with Versamark ink and WOW Opaque Bright White Super Fine Embossing Powder. I did that 2 times. I chose to color my baubles in with shades of blue Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I also used white, and Silver Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I colored the tree white and the base Silver. I stamped and heat embossed the confetti from the “Cheers” Woodblock stamp as my snow with the same embossing powder and ink. It’s a little harder to see how your stamp might stamp using a woodblock and just a portion to not stamp the sentiment. I first colored the bottom of my panel with a white pencil for my ground and didn’t care for that too much. So I added chunky glitter, can’t go wrong with glitter right? My panel was cut down to 4 x 5.25 and glued to a Grey top folding A2 card base. I fussy cut my tree and glued it with foam tape before adhering it to my panel and then to a card base.. Lastly, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from woodblock collection from Michaels. I added my sentiment with foam tape and that was it for this card.

On this card, I did pretty much the same. The only difference is I added my tree to a white panel and stamped a different sentiment in black ink. I also glued some dots of glue using my liquid glue and dusted on some chunky glitter. My panel was added to a white top folding A2 card base keeping this card flat. I hope you enjoyed what I created with my Woodblocks. I had a blast and I Thank Amy for this fun series and linky.
