Paper craft project no. 465: Joyeux Noel CAS card

Hello! Last week, a new challenge started at Time Out. Sandie and Nonni have re-organized the team and I'm in the reminder team now :o). This time around we're to CASE a card and put our own twist to our creation. We are CASE-ing this bold card by Ardyth of MASKerade.

I took a few elements from Ardyth's card: the colored cardbase, the red flowers, and the big sentiment. My twist: I created a Christmas card and used layered die-cuts for my big sentiment. I stamped the poinsettia border on cardstock, loosely colored it with brush markers, and then die-cut the cardstock using the medium double-stitched rectangle die. I mounted the panel to my taupe cardbase and then finished the card by layering my sentiment using the Joyeux Noel phrase die -- one from white cardstock and another from kraft chipboard. I rather liked the end result and thought the card is easy to mass produce.

Check out the cards the team + guest designer Marina made and then link up your own project inspired by Ardyth's card. There is still a week left to play. We can't wait to see your creations!

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)

Paper craft project no. 464: Hope is stronger than fear one layer card

Hello! There's a special challenge at Time Out for the next couple of weeks. The theme is Breast Cancer Awareness and/or Friendship with the optional technique twist of embossing and/or using pink. Sponsoring this challenge is CAS-ual Fridays.

My card's pretty simple and I went with the optional twist of using pink. I sponged ink through a stencil (Rows of Hearts) and then stamped the ribbon and sentiment.

Check out the cards the team + guest designer Coni made and then link up your own project. We can't wait to see your creations!

Paper craft project no. 463: Cards for coffee lovers


Howdy! Sharing a few cards I made for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. My little stamp company, STAMPlorations, is once again one of many super sponsors. Aside from the prizes we're offering for the hop, we're also giving away a couple extra prizes on the STAMPlorations blog. Together with STAMPlorations girls Melissa, Vicki, Karola, and Becca, we're sharing projects that feature some fab new coffee-themed stamps and dies in the STAMPlorations store!

Here are my cards up close. I'm all for quick makes these days. For the background on all my cards, I did some monoprinting with my Gelli plate using one of the newer ARTplorations stencils, Bloom Boldly. Managed to pull 4 prints (I'm saving the 4th one for a card later on). I already had a few diecuts and stamped images done so it was simply a matter of picking the ones I wanted to use and adhering them on the card fronts. My backgrounds were already  colorful so I left the diecuts white and the stamped images uncolored :o)

I used two new CUTplorations dies: Coffee Cup Silhouette and Coffee.

For this card, I used the new Anywhere There's Coffee stamp and die set.

And last, for this card I used the new Framed Coffee To Go 2 and CUTplorations Oh Frap! die.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)
