This is the Good Life

Hello, Joy here today.  I wanted to show you a card I made with supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such.  
The pink base and banner paper (Lady Rose by KaiserCraft)were cut using the  die set, Blueprints 13 from My Favorite Things.  Then The sentiment base was cut using Spellbinders Labels Eighteen (on sale) and green paper from LadyRose by KaiserCraft was die cut using A2 Matting Basics by Spellbinders.  The sentiment base was shaded using the Tim Holt Mini Inking Tool before it was stamped with the sentiment called You Are Beautiful.   The sentiment panel was popped up using the Large Joy Foam Pads.

My two favorite supplies from this card are the Blueprints 13 die set and the A2 Matting Basics.   Both are my favorite "go to" tools. I feel like if I have these cut out, the card almost makes itself! Hope you get some time to do some crafting -- or browsing the on line store at Classy Cards 'n Such.  Remember they have a wish list tool that when you put items you would like on the list, those items will stay until you remove them.
Thanks for looking at my card.  Have a HAPPY stamping day.

Cast All Your Cares

Hello, here is a card that I made with supplies from the Classy Cards 'n Such on line store for this week's challenge.  When I saw the floral tea cups, I knew that the colors would determine how I met the challenge.

This started with pink paper from Candy Cane Lane by Bo Bunny and a scrap of flower paper.  The small picture frame around the sentiment Cast All Your Cares by JustRite Stamps is matted on Gold Mirricard card stock.  The polkadot paper is from Key To My Heart by KaiserCraft was die cut with extra leaf die in the Massa Leaf Frame by PoppyStamps.  The tiny bow was cut 3 times and stacked to give it dimension.  It is the tiny bow from the Pennant Swag by Our Daily Bread.

This would be a good week to join in the challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such.  Go to Beverly's blog, Classy Cards 'n Such.blogspot.com and see all the guidelines and you would be the winner of a nice prize.

Thanks for looking at my card - have a happy stamping day.

Repeat Impressions Inspirational Challenge

Today the Inspiration challenge at Repeat Impressions is this picture.


And this is my project.  The sweet little treat boxes called Stamp A Box were stamped on different kinds of paper.  The tiny cluster of hearts stamped on two of them is from the Little Fill 'Ns Series called Random Hearts.  I made about 30 of these fairly quickly and handed them out on Valentine's Day to anybody I met - the lady at the grocery store and some of my Starbuck buddies.  Everywhere I went I handed them out.  It was so much fun and everyone was so pleased.  I'm going to do it again on St. Patrick's Day.  This time I'll either use the butterfly or rose Stamp A Box.  I'm wondering what they will look like made of vellum.
Ok, now it's your turn.  Make a project with the Inspirational Photo in mind and link up your project on Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built.  She will pick a random name for a really nice gift certificate.

Here is the list of Rock Star Designers who have made projects to inspire you.

Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions

Good Morning!  I thought I'd show you a couple of cards made with an Embossing technique and a few Repeat Impressions stamps.  Here are the supplies you will need
1.  Repeat Impression stamp called Wings Positive, vertical sentiment called Thinking of You and Happy Birthday from someone who loves you
2.  Glossy Card Stock
3.  Dye Ink - the brighter the color the better
4.  Embossing Pad
5.  Brayer
6.  Embossing Powder, I used gold

Stamp and heat emboss Repeat Impressions image on the glossy card stock
Ink up the brayer well, moving the brayer over the ink pad in even strokes, making sure the
      brayer is covered

Evenly move the inked brayer over the embossed image, inking the image first

Move the brayer over the other parts of the cardstock
In these cards I wanted the image background to be darker than the other parts of the card
Continue inking up the card until it is the desire color depth.


Here are the cards I made using this technique

I heat embossed 2 sentiments on colored vellum in gold and attached to the inked images and then added 2 gold strips of paper to the top and bottom of each piece of glossy card stock and then attached to some designer paper and then put on a card base.

Thinking of You

Good morning, Joy here today.  This is a card that I made with supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such to meet this week's challenge.
The paper is from a 6.5 x 6.5 pad from KaiserCraft called Storyteller.  The tiny red print is from KaiserCraft's 6.5 x 6.5 pad called Key to My Heart.  The little birds are from a fabulous stamp set from Sparkle 'n Sprinkle called Bird Song and the sentiment is from JustRite's Hugs & Kisses.  I used Blueprints 4 to cut the red card stock base and Blueprints 13 for the circle, tag and star.  It was easy to do a little fussy cutting around the birds and tucked them in the cut out circle.

I challenged my sister to join me in this week to make a card and post it on the Classy Card 'n Such blog.  Why don't you join us and perhaps ask a friend to do the same?  Thanks for looking at my card.  Have a happy stamping day!

It's Cold Outside.....

Hello, Joy here today for Classy Cards 'n Such.  With much of the country feeling like a deep freeze, I couldn't help but want to make a snow card for this week's challenge.   The challenge was to use polka dots with a little pink.

This gorgeous paper is from Bo Bunny and called Candy Cane Lane.  It's a Christmas 6x6 pad, but most of the papers can be used for projects other than Christmas.  The sentiment is from Impression Obsession and called Twinkles.  The snowflake was popped up using Small Joy Foam Pads.  I used 3 of the Silver Rock Candy Queen & Co.  These were my last ones, so I got to order more.  They are really very pretty.

Thanks for looking at my card - stay warm!

You Make Me Smile

Hi Joy here today with a FUN, FUN card made with supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such.  Can I say fun again?  Here it is:
I embossed a piece of kraft card stock with an Anna Griffin Embossing Folder called Smitten because of all the fun images on it. (roses, hearts, stars, swirls and flourishes).  It's a fun folder to use for any occasion.  I then used several different colors of Tim Holtz Distress Ink stains to "splat" on a piece of cream colored card stock.  I just put the paper on my craft sheet and splatted away!  It was so much fun! To give them a little sparkle I added a little perfect pearls with a small brush.  Next I took a sentiment from Impression Obsession's Anytime Sentiments and stamped in the lower right corner.  I added a few tiny dots with some  Viva Decor Pearl Pens.  Lastly I rounded the corners with my Envelope Punch Board, since it stays out on my desk and is easier than digging for a corner rounder.  The sentiment panel was popped up using some of the large Joy Foam Pads.

Thanks for looking at my card - hope you give it a try - it's fun!  Have a Happy stamping day!

Warm Thoughts

Good Morning.  Do you have snow yet?  In my part of Texas we don't often get snow and so far not a flake here.  That didn't stop me from making a snowflake card with supplies from the on line  Classy Cards 'n Such store.

We are to use the color photo to give us some inspiration and I love the color teal/sea foam with khaki.  First I took the little emblem from Hugs & Kisses by JustRite to use as a snowflake and the tiny snowflake and the snowman from Twinkles by Impression Obsession.  The "sending you" sentiment is from Anytime Sentiments by Impression Obsession.  These were all heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder by Sparkle 'n Sprinkle.  The khaki cardstock and colored vellum arrow were die cut with My Favorite Thing's Blueprints 13.  I popped up the vellum arrow with a Small Joy Foam Pad and added the little Silver Rock Candy to a few of the centers.

Why not join in the fun of our challenge.  Just go to the Classy Cards 'n Such Blog, see the details and get some great inspiration from the Design team.  There is a great gift for the winner.

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