Classy Card's 'n Such Music Challenge

Hi, Joy here today.  This week Beverly, owner of Classy Cards 'n Such challenged us to use a music theme in our projects.  We could use die cuts, sheet music or music notes.  What a fun challenge!  Here is my card:
I stamped the Garden Rose from B Line Designs on a piece of music designer paper.  I then used Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet,  Bundled Sage  and Peeled Paint distress markers by Tim Holtz  to color - I love these markers.  Shading is to easy to achieve and I like the look.  Then used the die from Spellbinders called Labels Twenty-five and Teramo Labels.  The Happy Birthday sentiment which I shaded with ink on a Mini Ink Blending Tool is from Ornate Frame Sentiments by Our Daily Bread Designs.  This is a fabulous stamp set to add to your collection - it has so many stamps and beautiful scrip in several different sizes.

Dies:
Labels Twenty-five by Spellbinders
Teramo Labels by Memorybox
Stamps:
Garden Rose by B Line Designs
Ornate Frame Sentiments from Our Daily Bread
Distress Markers:
Spun Sugar
Victorian Velvet
Bundled Sage
Peeled Paint
Other:
Mini Ink Blending tool - oh, how I love this little tools; makes it easy to ink in small spaces.

Hope you have as much fun as I did meeting this Music challenge.  Have a HAPPY stamping day!

Classy Cards 'n Such Die Cuts Challenge

I hope spring is coming to your part of the country.  Our azaleas and dogwoods are in full bloom and it is beautiful in East Texas.

Hi, Joy today showing you how I met Classy Cards 'n Such Die Cuts Challenge - with supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such.  I have a Circut and a Silhouette, but rarely get them out because I love using my Vagabond for die cuts.

Here is my card

I cut two flower vine die cuts from Anna Griffin's Die called Flower Vine.  Both were sponged with pink and green ink.  The flowers were cut off one of the die cuts and layered on top of the other die cut with small Joy Foam Dots. This was glued onto the journal page shaped die from My Favorite Things Blueprints 4.   Tiny lace edges were cut from Allisons' Ribbons.  The sentiment was stamped on one of the Blueprints 4 dies and matted on top of another rectangle die from this set and popped up with Large Joy Foam Dots.  The sentiment stamp is from Inky Antics called Mighty Tower with the little flourish from the Spring Words Stamp Set.  The butterfly was hand cut from the Black-Eyes Susan Vintage Labels Five by JustRite, colored and attached with Joy Foam  Dots.

Small Joy Foam Dots
Large Joy Foam Dots
Flower Vine Die by Anna Griffin
Blueprints 4 Die by My Favorite Things
Mighty Tower Stamp by Inky Antics
Spring Words Stamp by JustRite Stamps

Here is a peek at how the layered flowers look close up.

P.S.  The Joy Foam Dots comes in two sizes - I love the small ones because they fit onto tiny areas.
The Blueprints 4 Die set has a great variety of dies (journal page, heart, lace, button, rectangles, star) - great bang for your money. The journal page die in the set is perfect if you do Simple Stories or Project Life Scrapbooking.

Thanks for looking at my card.  Have a HAPPY stamping day.

Easter at Classy Cards 'n Such

Hi, today I'm posting a challenge card made with supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such.  The challenge was to do an Easter card with an inspirational sentiment.  Easter is a big family time for us and is an important part of our spiritual lives so this card was a pleasure to make.

Here is my card:
Here are a few details.  I used Sparkle 'n Sprinkle Gold outline embossing powder for the flower stamp from B Line Designs is called Garden Rose.  The butterfly is from the stamp set called Black-Eyed Susan.  The images were stamped, matted on the Spellbinders Label Eight and a ribbon tied around it and then this was pop up with the large Joy Foam Dots on a piece of gold embossed card stock.  This was then matted on a lighter piece of lavender card stock

Classy Cards 'n Such Challenge

Hi - is it spring yet?  Surely it's not too far off in your area!  Joy here posting a card for Classy Cards 'n Such Silly or Funny April Fool's Day Challenge.  This gave me an opportunity to use the Stamp Set called Just Keep Calm by JustRite Stamps.  This is a giant set that has 64 images and sayings.  It has so many funny "Stay Calm" sentiments.  Here is one of them
I used Sparkle 'n Sprinkles White Embossing Powder for the frame and sentiment and cut it out with Spellbinders Nested Oval Medallion.  The ribbon is a little bit of Egg Shell Seam Binding. The paper is from a Summer Fresh 6x6 pad.  You might recognize the tiny little scallop - it comes from my favorite die called Allison's Ribbons by Cheery Lynn Designs.

Project of the Week from Repeat Impresssions

Wendy owner of Repeat Impressions asked me to do a Project of the Week and I jumped at the opportunity.    I have a confession - I do not color very well (that's a understatement).  But I've found a way to achieve coloring that suits me - it's watercoloring - because I don't have to be exact and I can color outside the lines and it's ok!

So my Project of the Week is watercoloring with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  These inks have a translucent quality that is perfect for watercoloring - but they are in pads - so today I'll show you how you can use Distress Inks to obtain the results you want.



Here are the supplies we are going to use:
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Heat Gun
Black Embossing powder
Water color paper (found these on clearance at HL - yeah!)
Stamp called Bass Harbor large  (one of my favorite places in Maine)
Sentiment stamp called Maine - the way life should be
Water paint brush
acrylic block

Stamp image onto the textured side of watercolor paper with Staz-on black ink, cover with black embossing powder, shaking off excess and heat set
Spray water on block and mix with Distress Ink gathered on water brush.
Start with lighter colors, mixing colors as needed
Mat with light blue and dark blue (colors of Maine!)

Here is my card.  This card took less than 20 minutes - because I don't have to be exact in coloring. Quick and Easy!

Be sure to check out the other Rock Star Designers' projects each week. Remember  Repeat Impressions has a challenge every week that you can join in and have a chance to win some fabulous prizes. You can find the challenges every Wednesday at The House That Stamps Built. We love to see what you create.

Thank you for looking at my card - have a HAPPY stamping day!

Susan's Gardens Challenge from Classy Cards 'n Such

When I heard the challenge from Classy Cards 'n Such would be to use a flower from Susan's Gardens Dies, I was so excited.  These are quality dies that help you make the most beautiful flowers that can be used on lots of different projects.

I made a little box for a bracelet I made my granddaughter.
First, a little match type box was made using the Mini Scor-Buddy.  Then flower parts were cut using the Lily from Susan's Garden.  To texturized the individual petals and the leaves, I used the medium ball stylus from the Susan's Garden Tool Kit.  This tool kit was purchased because it  has a moulding pad and a leaf pad.  There is another version of the tool kit called Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and it has a cute carrying case.  The flower was quickly assembled on top of a separate piece of card stock in case I messed up the flower, I would not need to do another box. - Next time I won't to this because the flower assembly was so quick and easy.  I used a Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge Distress Marker to make the little freckles in the petals.  Before the stamen was glued in the center, the tips were dipped in a little glue and then dipped into some flower soft.  The Art Institute Adhesive is one of the best around for assembling these flowers and is perfect for the flower soft.

I love doing these flowers - they can be used for so many projects.  I saw a wreath made from  different Susan's Garden dies - it was heavenly!

Project Supplies:

Mini Scor-Buddy
Lily from Susan's Garden
Susan's Garden Tool Kit or Paper Blossoms Tool Kit
Tim Holtz Distres Marker
Art Institute Adhesive

Now - I'm off to make a few more of these beauties - have a happy stamping day!

Hi, Joy here, letting you know about a Classy Cards n Such Inspiration Challenge.  Here is our inspiration.

Repeat Impressions Designer's Choice Challenge

Hi!  Today at Repeat Impressions, one of the Rock Stars - Karen challenged us to make a project with the colors of Black and White, plus one other color.  What a great challenge, Karen!  Eeeek.... I had to do a little thinking on this one.

Here is my card.
I used one of my favorite images (I know, I say that all the time) because when you stamp this image, it has a little tiny texture in the wings that is beautiful!  The image is from the Summer Series and the sentiment is from Big Boys Toys - this series has some fabulous sentiments and great images.  The paper is from my scrap mountain!  I colored the wings with a few copic and then went over all of it with a Clear Spica Glitter Pen.  If you have never tried one of these pens - this would be a wonderful opportunity.  I love these pens and use them on almost all my cards.  The little sparkle that they add makes a big difference in your projects.  I just wish I knew how to photograph the sparkle!

Ok, now head on to look at the other Rock Star Design Team Members projects.  Then make one and link it on Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built and you could be the randomly drawn winner of a nice gift certificate from Repeat Impressions.

I used the stamp sets called Think Big Favorites #3 and Mini Blooms.  The polka dot paper is really a pretty deep purple called Royal Velvet.  The "hello friend" is on watercolor paper and the "thinking of you is on Stampers Select.

Classy Cards 'n Such and Twinkling H2Os

Hi, it's Joy today showing you a couple of cards I made using some great supplies I found at Classy Cards 'n Such.  
I wasn't sure what the big deal was about Twinkling H20s, but with this challenge -- I now understand!  THESE are fabulous paints to use with cards.  As soon as they are completely dry, the colors just sparkle and shine - I'm painting chipboard frames this afternoon and then I'm going to look for other things to paint!

I used two very different techniques.  On the first one, after wetting the Twinkling H2Os,  I mounted a stamp from a set called Black Eyed Susan by JustRite and painted directly onto it.  Water was lightly spritzed onto the painted stamp and stamped onto watercolor paper.  It made a flowing watercolor type of image - I love this technique.  After it was completely dry, the sparkle just popped out!  The ribbon was colored by putting a little of the color into the Spritzer Bottle and sprayed onto Chalk White Seam Binding and when it dried - it was so shiny! The butterfly from Black Eyed Susan stamp set was stamped, painted, cut out and popped up with Joy Foam Dots.  The green background paper is from The Lake House by Kaisercraft.
 For the next card Twinkling H2Os were used just like regular water colors with a Tim Holtz Water Brush after the same image was stamped on watercolor paper.  The sentiment was cut out using Spellbinders Vintage Labels Five and popped up with Joy Foam Dots.  Again the butterfly was stamped, painted, cut out and popped up with Joy Foam Dots.  The pretty green Designer paper is called Harvest Lane by Simple Stories
I just wish you could see the sparkle - is amazing!  Oh, dear, I've got a new habit.  I now want every color.  Beverly, owner of Classy Cards 'n Such describes them as "delightful little pots of color with a touch of sparkle" - and they are!!

Supplies:
Colors:  Twinkling H2Os
Other:  Spritzer Bottle
             Tim Holtz Water Brush
             Chalk White Seam Binding
             Joy Foam Dots

Classy Cards 'n Such Cast Your Cares Card

Hi, Joy here today showing you a card I made from supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such.  I have loved the 6.5x6.5 paper pad called The Lake House - I giggle because I have loved this pad so much I've already gone thru 2 of them.  This is from some left over scraps.  These scraps will soon be gone!

This is for a friend who is going thru a difficult time and I'm hoping this will encourage her,  The dark green filigree mat is from Decorative Labels Eight with a sentiment from a set by Flourishes called Cast All Your Cares stamped on a Vintage Labels Two.

I placed a 2x2 square in the middle of a mat and then arranged scrap strips around that square.  On top of that I popped up the dark green filigree die and then on top of that I popped up the sentiment.  So this card has a lot of depth to it.

Thank you for looking at my card.  Have a HAPPY stamping day.

Classy Cards 'n Such Many Thanks Card

Hi!  Joy here, posting a thanks card using products from Classy Cards 'n Such.  I'm still writing a few thank you notes for goodies sent to me at Christmas.  Here is one that uses some scraps of my favorite 6.5x6.5 paper pad called The Lake House.  The filigree corner is from Decorative Blossom Corners by Spellbinders.  This is the smaller one in the set.  The sentiment is from Impressive Obsession's Thanks Sentiment Stamp Set.


This was an easy card to put together.  I cut strips of paper measuring about 1inch, lined them up, making sure that my sentiment would be on one with a light background.  Cutting the filigree corner was so easy when wax paper was put between the paper and the die before running thru my Vagabond.  These were placed on a black mat and then placed on my folded white cardstock.

I appreciate you looking at my card. Have a HAPPY stamping day.

Think Pink at Classy Cards 'n Such

THINK PINK is the challenge today at Classy Cards 'n Such.  Easy - easy since I love pink so much. Another thing I like is tags so for this challenge this one was easy-peezy!

Tag was layered using a die cut called Quinn Flourish cut from some of the paper from Key To My Heart, and a Spellbinders scalloped heart die layered on another heart die.  The Happy Valentines Day sentiment is from Hugs & Kisses by JustRite and was stamped on some pink paper from the Key To My Heart pad.  There is a little tiny gold scallop piece behind the heart and is a corner cut from a Romantic Rectangle Spellbinders die. This touch of gold gave the tag a little bright spot of interest.  Before layering all the pieces I used a little Tim Holtz Distress Ink on the edges of each piece.  The twine at the top is Doodle Bug twine (on sale right now).
























Recap:
Key To My Heart paper
Quinn Flourish
Hugs & Kisses Stamp Set
Spellbinders Classic Scallop Heart Die
Romantic Rectangle Die (for tiny corner piece)
Doodlebug Twine

Thank you for looking at my card. Have a HAPPY stamping day!
