Joy Clair - Oh-Uh Ink Splatter

Monday, July 25, 2016

Hello everyone,

I am here with Joy Clair showcasing the "Uh Oh Ink Splatter" stamp set again!  I love a splatter stamp set, it just makes a card look so great.  I have used several colors with the splatter and added a sentiment from the "Thank you for Everything" stamp set.  I finished the card off by using some sequins.  Clean and simple!

CottageCutz - Home Sweet Home

Monday, July 25, 2016

Hello everyone,

I am here with CottageCutz with another card from the new release from June's "home sweet home" collection. This release is really nice, it's all about the home. I am using the Build-A-House Set 2, The first die in the set is to build your house and the second one is accessories for the outside of your house. There are three separate words even though it is one die.  The words are from  "Home Sweet Home Phrase set." which includes three words , so if you wanted to use the "home's" or "sweet" separately you can.

My card is an A2 card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2).


I have die cut all the pieces that I need to build my house.  The pieces that I cut out and I don't use, I like to keep them because I can use them later if I want to use the die.


I sponged all the pieces I needed to, to give the dies some dimension.


I cut out the clouds from the Clouds and Sun die cut set to use the largest cloud to make clouds in the background of my card.  I saved the pieces that I did not use to use at another time.


Here is how I used the largest die to make the clouds.


Thanks for stopping by, I am on twitter, instagram, pinterest, facebook, and splitcoastampers. Please stop by and follow me on any or all of these social medians, If you are not following me on my blog, please do that too. I love sharing my creations, you never know I may have a giveaway every now and then! I hope you enjoyed looking at my card as much as I did making it. Please come back again soon.

a2z Scrapbooking - Hello

Sunday, July 24, 2016

Hello everyone,

I'm here today with a2z Scrapbooking with a CAS card with you today.  This month on a2z Scrapbooking the challenge is "Anything Goes".  I love these kinds of challenges, because you get to use anything you would like.  I am using the cute butterfly called "Delicate Butterfly Fancy", this is a great die to have in your stash, it is not to small and not to large.  You can use it anywhere where you need to fill a space.  I am also using the stamp set by Hero Arts "Spring Hello".  I love the font on the "hello", it is so elegant and fancy.  I thought this sentiment from the set went perfect with my card.  I finished the card off by adding so sequins.  What do you think?

It's a Girl - CottageCutz

Thursday, July 21, 2016

Hello everyone,

I am here with CottageCutz to share a cute waterfall mini album made with one sheet of 12 x 12 paper.  I saw a tutorial on youtube, so I thought I would give it a try.  Here is the link to the tutorial.


Here is how I put it together:

  1. The mini album measures 3" x 4".
  2. I used one sheet of black 12 x 12 -  65 lbs card stock to construct the mini 
  3. I scored the 12 x 12 paper at 4" and 8" turned my paper and scored at 3", 6", 9 (please refer to the tutorial to learn how to put the album together)
  4. My design paper is cut at 2 3/4  x 3 3/4 - 8 pieces 
  5. I cut the "It's a Girl", giraffe and lion die with my big shot to decorate the book.
The first two pages when you open the book, the little giraffe is a CottageCutz die

The next page, the lion is from the CottageCutz die 

First waterfall

Baack of the waterfall

I hope you are inspired!  Please stop by and join the challenge, this months theme is greenery.

Retro Rubber Challenge Blog #43 - Summertime

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

Hello everyone,

I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge blog and we have a new challenge, it is "Summertime".  I hope you all are enjoying your summer so far.  I know I am, it has been a busy one, but I am enjoying it!  I love the warm weather, how about you?

I am using MFT Stamp set that was released in May of 2015.  The sentiment is from Impression Obsession which I believe is a new stamp.  Have you been to the beach yet?  Don't you love these cute little penguins!  I colored them with copics and used the dies to cut them out.  The background is paper I had in my stash.




I hope you have been inspired by my card and will join the challenge. You have until July 29th to hop on over to Retro Rubber to join the challenge. Remember to use a stamp over a year old and make sure you tell us how old it is. I cannot wait to see your creation!  Leave me a comment to tell me how you liked my card, I love to read them. Thanks for stopping by, come back again soon!!
