Seas the Day Revisited

Happy Tuesday!! I wanted to share a few cards I made with a stamp set I designed for Joy Clair stamps. This set was released last Spring, however I could not leave it alone. 

Each card is a bit unique, yet still part of the set. You can purchase this stamp set directly from Joy Clair. 

Have a great day!

Shakerless Window Card

Hello there! Crystal here with a fun, summer inspired card for SimplyStamps.com! This card was easy to make, and the main focus is the beautiful pineapple stamp. 

To make this card, I stamped the image on white card stock and fuzzy cut that. Then using a rectangle die, I ran that through my Sizzix Big Shot. Acetate was added to the large panel and the "thanks" sentiment was added to the front panel. The pineapple was adhered to the smaller rectangle die cut, To create a window effect, I used foam adhesive on the back of the large panel and placed everything together onto the card  base. 

The reason this is a "shaker less" window card is because there are no sequins or confetti in the window. Below is a video of this card being made! I hope you share your creations with me. On Instagram be sure to tag #simplystamps.

I appreciate you stopping  by the blog today!

Sympathy cards are so difficult to make when they are needed. This floral globe seems appropriate..

Bright Flamingo

Hello there Simply Stampers, today I am here with a fun card that can be made using a few supplies and a stamp available on the SimplyStamps.com site. Let’s get started!

First, I began with trimming and mounting the stamp onto the wood block.

Next, I stamped the flamingo in a yellow ink onto white cardstock and fuzzy cut that.

Using a matching yellow cardstock trimmed 4.25 in. by 5.50 in. emboss it using an embossing folder.

I selected a cardstock to coordinate the yellow ink, and trimmed that to 2 inches x 4.25 in.

Next , I adhered a matching tag over the pattered ribbon.

Using 3D foam adhesive, adhere the flamingo.

Now it’s time to place the sentiment on the card with foam adhesive.

To finish, I placed iridescent sequins on the tag and sentiment.

Hope you like it, I particularly like how easy this was to make.

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Crafty Mojo

Hi there! Welcome to my blog. I been staying away from blogging lately, as the camper is becoming more and more difficult to craft out of. We are 45 days away from moving in to the #dreamhouse and I am getting antsy!  Anyways, my beautiful friend Heather gifted me this darling set from the January release of Neat and Tangled and decided to enter it to their challenge.

I made a set of 4 shaker thank you cards. The theme is perfect as I was able to get my  hands on the matching die set.

Thanks for stopping by today!
