Picket Fence Studios: June Release is Live

Hi everyone!

Happy Picket Fence Studios release day! If you haven't already checked the new release head over to the Picket Fence Studios store and check it out. You don't want to miss it!

I have two cards for you today

For my first card today I used the You Were Mermaid for Me set along with A Fishy Lot. I stamped the images on watercolor paper with black and embossed in clear. Once embossed I used Karin Brush Pro markers to watercolor the scene and the elements.

Die cut and assembled my panel, then using craft foam adhered to a A2 notecard!

For my second card I used the Drop By to Say Croak set and coordinating dies along with Pond Scenery to create my little froggy scene. I LOVE LOVE the frogs!! I also used the Nested Rectangles Slim Line dies to create my slimline card. 

All supplies are on the bottom of this post

Pink and Main: I am Here for You Always

 Hi everyone!

Happy Sunday! I am back with another card using the May Pink and Main collection. I used the Dearest Friend stamp set which is a 6x6 set and has this amazing huge butterfly. I found a background I had previously made using gel press and dye inks and stamped it on it using Embossing ink, then embossed in white. I used my MISTI, so I was able to go back and repeat the process to get little bit thicker layer of embossing. 

Trimmed the background to 4" x 5 1/4". Stamped sentiment on black card stock, embossed in white and trimmed it. Using foam tape I adhered it to my stamped panel. Next, using craft foam I adhered to top folding white note card and added few pears from the Essential pack to finish it off.

Pink and Main: You Are Truly Amazing

Hi everyone!
Happy Saturday! Today I have a clean and simple card to share with you using the May Pink and Main Release. I love this month's focus on butterflies. 
To make the card I started by stamping one of the butterflies from the Butterfly sketches set, I used my MISTI tool and two shades of teal ink to get multicolored look. Next I die cut it using the coordinating die.

I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Butterfly kisses pack to 4" x 5 1/4" and stamped the sentiment from Dear Friend set using black ink. Adhered the butterfly using foam tape and adhered using craft foam to a top folding white note card.

Ellen Hutson: Thinking of You

Happy Friday! Today the new Ellen Hutson release is live and is super fun one. I am sharing a card using the new Pressing Thoughts stamp set and coordinating dies.

To make the card I actually pulled a background from my gel press backgrounds stash and trimmed it to 4" x 5 1/4". Next I stamped the image from the Pressing Thought set on watercolor paper and watercolored with Karin markers. Die cut it with the coordinating dies. Next I stamped the sentiment onto the background and adhered the image using foam tape. 

To finish off the card I adhered the panel using craft foam to top folding white note card!

Scrappy Tails: You Make Life Toad-ally Amazing

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a card using the newest Scrappy Tails release! (It's an amazing one)

I decided to use the new 6x8 set Fairy Botanicals (I love the little froggies in this set) along with the coordinating die set and the A2 Cloud Frame cover plate.

To make the card I started by stamping the large mushroom and frog image on watercolor paper using waterproof ink. Watercolor it and die cut it using the coordinating dies.

Next, cut piece of pale blue card stock and stamp sentiment. Die cut the Cloud Frame from heavy weight white card stock.

Use foam tape to adhere the image and then the cloud frame. Adhere the panel to a top folding white note card. So fun and easy! 

All the supplies are listed on the bottom of this post!

Hero Arts: June My Monthly Hero Kit Blog Hop + Giveaways +VIDEO

 Happy Monday!


It's time for a new My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts.

And again, Hero Arts never ceases to amaze me with their kits and products. This month's kit is another that you don't want to miss. It all about birthdays, celebration and cute cats and dogs!

If you are following the hop you have probably arrived from Emily Midgett's blog and your next stop is Jessica Frost-Ballas.
I have couple cards for you today using the main kit and also some of the add ons (POP UP CAKE DIE!!!!)

I have video for both coming shortly as soon as I resolve my technical difficulties.
For my first card I decided to go with a shaker card filled with the round clay sprinkles that come in the kit! I stamped, colored and die cut the images. Then created frame from Mist cardstock and stamped the little bod paw using embossing and watermark ink. For the background inside the shaker card I decided to stamp the Birthday Balloons Bold prints using Soft Granite ink (so it's not distracting with all the colorful sprinkles inside).
Then I have a card using the Cake Pop Up die! It's so easy to create the pop-up element inside the card. Once I die cut it from white card stock, I die cut it from bright colored cardstock and pieced it together. I created the same cake for the card front. Also I die cut Celebrate from the Birthday Stamp and Cut XL set three times from Pitch Black card stock, stacked them up and adhered to my panel. The card base was made from Azalea cardstock. Inside I stamped the sentiments using Ultra Pink Shadow Ink and Pool Party Reactive ink. 
Again, videos coming shortly.

Spellbinders: June Small Die of the Month Kit Samples

 Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing few samples using the June Small Die Kit of the Month from Spellbinders. I love this months kit and the scenes I created remind me of my home country of Macedonia. I used bunch of colored card stock and pulled sentiment from couple different stamps sets. I stamped the sentiments on colored card stock and embossed in white, then trimmed to size and adhered to my cards. 

The main die is sized to fit A2 card and makes creating all these scenes a breeze. All you need is just colored card stock and go to town die cutting. I die cut elements probably enough for 50 cards. 

Also these are amazing for masculine cards!!!
