I LOVE LOVE LOVE this month's kit. It's called Color Your World in Friendship and it's AMAZING!

I used the following inks: Taffy, Tutti Fruity, Creamsicle, Lemon Drop, Key Lime Fizz, Green Apple, Pool Party, Splash, Blue Hawaii, Purople Galaxy and Berry Smoothie. Next I trimmed the stenciled panel to 5 1/4" width and 2 3/4" height. Die cut the hands (these dies come in the kit) using add on paper pack that will go live on Monday.

I am back with couple cards using the new Christmas Slimline Collection by Spellbinders. I love the Circle  Kaleidoscope and the layering die ornaments. 
I decided make slimline card, and then using only the circle layering dies to make standard A2 size card.

Trinity Stamps: Let's Celebrate with Stencils

Hi everyone!

I had so much fun playing with the Cake and Candles 6x9 stencil from Trinity Stamps and building this tall cake to fit a slimline card.
You can also check the Trinity Blog HERE
To make the card start with a piece of white card stock (I used 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece). Start building the cake from the bottom to the top. I started with the cake base and masked the areas around using post-it tape or just plain paper.
Next, continue adding layers to the cake.

Once done with building the layers and the topper/banner part use white gel pen to add more details to the cake and the topper.

Trim the panel down to 3" x 8". Die cut the largest Dainity Scallop Slimline from Pool/aqua colored card stock. Create a slim line card base from white card stock ( I used 8 1/2" x 7" and scored the 7" side at 3 1/2")


To finish off the card stamp sentiment from the Supporting Script Sentiments set on the same Pool/Aqua card stock and emboss in white. Trim to size and adhere to the card.

Ellen Hutson: It's Your Birthday

Hi everyone! 
I am back today with another card featuring the new release from Ellen Hutson. For my card today I used the Aloha stamp set and the coordinating dies. 
To make the card I started by stamping the mountain image on piece of Arches cold press watercolor paper measuring 4" x 5 1/4", once stamped I embossed using clear embossing powder. I also stamped the girl image on separate piece of watercolor paper. Colored both using Karin Brush Pro markers and die cut the girl. 
I cut another 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Arches watercolor paper and die cut a circle. Using foam tape I adhered it over the mountain image, then adhered the girl.
Stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink on Pitch black card stock and embossed in white. Trimmed it to size and adhered to my panel.
To finish off my card I made top folding note card from Pitch black card stock and adhered my panel to it!
