 Here is my card:

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps have come out with a wonderful line of Harry Potter inspired stamps along with a lot other wonderful stamps. My card is using a few of the Harry Potter inspired stamps, which are the Glasses & Lightening Bolt stamp set, Wizarding Hat and the sentiment is called Favorite Muggle.  The links to these sets and other supplies are listed below.
.


Closer look at my card:

Here is how I put my card together:

1.  I started with an A2 size card,
2.  I positioned the stamps in my Misti that I wanted to use,


3.  I turned my paper around and stamped the images again.  If I have room on my paper I like to stamp the images a couple of times and then I will have them for another card later.


4.  I then took another piece of card stock and positioned my image on the paper, I stamped it, 


5.  I then positioned two of the stamps from the Glasses & Lightening Bolt stamp set onto the Misti and stamped them, 

6.  I then used a stencil to add some interest onto the card using the Memento ink and a clarity brush,


7.  I finished off my card by adding the sentiment called Favorite Muggle.  I then die cut the layer with a stitched die, back this with a piece of black card stock and then adhered it to my card base.



There you go....using the Misti is so perfect to get your stamps positioned where you want them and get a crisp and clean stamped image! I know I have said it over and over again.....I don't know how I stamped before without it. This is definitely the number one tool I go to for all my stamping needs!  What is yours?

Retro Rubber Challenge Blog #93 - Tic Tac Toe

Tuesday, August 14, 2018

Hello everyone!

I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge blog and we have a new challenge, which is a fun tic tac toe created by design team member Jan Clothier! I hope you have been enjoying her tic tac toe games, because I have!

The stamp set I used is a retired set from Stampin Up called Nailed It and coordinating Build It Framelits Dies which was release in April 2017.  This set is a wonderful set to have in your stash because I don't know about you, I never seem to have many stamps I can use for a masculine card.  It would be nice if Stampin Up would bring this set back.

If you have not joined our challenges before, the rules are very simple, just use a stamp older than a year and you must include the age (or approximate age) of the stamp in your blog post. Here is the sketch for you to use. I cannot wait to see you take on it.

No automatic alt text available.

My tic tac toe card is die cut or punch, washi tape and masculine.  My card is an A2 card, I used the dies to created the background, I stamped the hammer and die cut it, then die cut the white octagon and added my sentiment.  I added the embossed panel that measure 4 x 5 1/4 to my card front, added the bottom design paper and then added a strip of washi tape on top of the paper.  I then added the silver die cut strip, the octagon shape with the sentiment I used pop dots to adhere it to my card and lastly I added the hammer.  This card would be great to give a  man for a promotion or something he did well!


Are you ready to play along? Be sure to stop over on the Retro Rubber Challenge blog to get some more inspiration! Thank you for stopping by, you have until August 24th to join the fun!

I did not create a supply list, because most of the items I used on my card are retired.  Everything I used on the card is from Stampin Up.  Here is a picture of what the set looks like:





Chatterbox Suzy Stamps - Three Pumpkins

Sunday, August 12, 2018

Hello everyone!

I am here with Crackerbox Suzy Stamps and I have a Halloween card to share with you today, using two of the newly release stamps.  The first one is Smiling Pumpkin and Pumpkin Plump .  These pumpkins are so adorable and easy to color! 

Here is how I created my card:

My card is an A2 card, I stamped the Smiling Pumpkin first, then masked it off and stamped the Pumpkin Plump on each side of the Smiling Pumpkin with Memento black tuxedo ink.  I then masked the two end pumpkins off and took used some distress ink using a Tim Holtz mini stencil set #22 to create my background.  I then colored the pumpkins using Copic markers.  I die cut the layer with a stitched die and adhered it to my card.

I stamped the Halloween sentiment from Bats in a Belfry, I die cut it out with a stitched pennant and used foam tape to pop it up on my card.  I finished the card off by adding some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer - Glitter Gloss to give the pumpkins some shimmer. 


Another look at my card.

For my first post, I am sharing with you a beautiful card I made with the stamp called Goddess of Autumn and the sentiment is called Autumn Dancing.

My card is an A2 card, the black layer measures 4 x 5 1/2, the second layer is 3 7/8 x 5.  I created my card by first masking off the sun by cutting a circle from post it note masking tape.  I masked off the bottom to create the hill/grass, using distressed ink.  I also used distress inks to create the background.  I then stamped the tree from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamp called Tree Blowing Leaves and the Goddess of Autumn stamp.  I stamped the Goddess of Autumn stamp again and colored her with colored pencils.  I then fuzzy cut her out and paper pieced her to the card along with some of the leaves.

Joy Clair - Barn Party

Saturday, August 4, 2018

Hello everyone!

I'm here with Joy Clair and we are collaborating with Rinea for the whole month of August! I am featuring the newly released  Joy Clair stamp set Barn Yard, this is the cutest stamp set, it has several animal images and lots of elements to create your cards.  I am showcasing a birthday gift bag for you today.


I created the gift bag by creating a back panel with the Rinea Metallics Foiled Paper Variety Pack, I adhered this to the bag with wet glue (I find it easier to use wet glue when I am adhering the foiled paper).  I then stamped the images from the Joy Clair stamp set Barn Yard to use on the gift bag and colored them with copics.  I added all the elements to the bag.  I then die cut a couple of banners from the Rinea Princess Variety Foiled Pack and added them to the bag with wet glue.  I then created a gift tag with the Rinea Princess Variety Pack and then stamped the Happy Birthday from the Joy Clair stamp set Barn Party with the Rinea Ghost Ink.  I attached a black piece of cardstock to the tag and then used some twine to attach the tag to my bag.

Here is another look at the birthday gift bag.
