Pin It


            HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!! 
How EXCITING!! Paper Sweeties is CELEBRATING their 6th Anniversary!! 

For my Project today I wanted to create a SWEET Engagement Shaker Card!! I've used several sets to create a Sweet Scene and I just LOVE the way it turned out!! I used the Thinking of You Stamp SetJake Stamp Set and the coordinating Jake Sweet Cuts Die Set, Abigail Stamp Set and the coordinating Abigail Sweet Cuts Die Set, Wishing You Stamp SetWith Love Die SetFaith Hope Love Stamp SetHippity Hoppity Stamp Set, and the Happy Fall Ya'll Stamp Set to create my Card!! I Stamped and Embossed onto Patterned Paper for Abigail's DressJake's PantsSweater Vest and the Bouquet in Jake's Hand!! I Stamped and Embossed everything else onto White Stampers Select Cardstock and used my Copic Markers to Color everything and to add some Shading to all of the other Images!!


I wanted it to be a Shaker Card so I attached and piece of Vellum over the Front of my Shaker Element and used my Sewing Machine and some Metallic Platinum Thread to Sew it onto my Card Front!! Give it a SHAKE and the Elements will float around!! Plus the Sound of it shaking is kinda FUN too!!
 I LOVE the way it came together and I even decorated the inside of the Card with some of the NEW Products!! I LOVE being able to personalize the inside of my Cards!!  

NEW August Products are available today!! Lets take a look!! 


Congrats

I used the coordinating Dies to Die Cut the Images out and then added some Tonic Studios Glitter Pen for some Sparkle and coated the Balloons, Party Hat and the Bow on the Puppy with some Tonic Studios Morning Dew Nuvo Drops!! I LOVE the way they tuned out!! For the Card Base I Die Cut the NND Frameworks Die from some Black Cardstock and layered a Kraft Cardstock Panel ontop of that!! Then I Die Cut the NND Frames & Flags Die and Inked it using the NND Paw Prints Stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink!! Then I added some Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to tie it all together!! Gathered Twigs was added for the Masked Ground!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment and added the Images using 3D Foam Squares!!

Therm O Web & Gina K Designs Autumn Release Blog Hop!!

Pin It


HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!! 
Today we're CELEBRATING the NEW Therm O Web & Gina K Designs Autumn Stamp-n-foil Release with a FUN Blog Hop!!


Who's ready for some AMAZING Inspiration and chances to WIN!!??
I've created a couple Cards for today and I CAN'T WAIT to share them with you!!

Fist up is a Card using the Products from the BEAUTIFUL Graphic Sunflower Collection!! SWOON!! Sunflowers are a FAVORITE of mine and these Images are going to be PERFECT for so many occasions!!


I started by Stamping the Solid Sunflower Images using Gina K Designs Inks in Sweet Corn and Wild Dandelion and  Distress Ink in Rusty Hinge to add some dimension using an Ink Dauber to apply Ink to the Stamp for a specific placement of my ink!! 
 For the Centers of the Sunflowers I used some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and then Stamped the Leaf Images directly onto the open areas of the paper using Gina K Designs Fresh Asparagus and Jelly Bean Green Inks!! Again applying the Ink with an Ink dauber for the Second stamping to apply the darker Color for a more dimensional looking Image!!
 I wanted to add some dimension and some Foiling to the Leaves too, so I used the Deco Foil Adhesive Pen Medium using a Paint Brush to apply tiny Dot details!! Simple push down on the tip of the Pen over your work surface and create a puddle of the Medium!! Then use your Paint Brush to apply it to the Project!! I LOVE being able to find other ways to use my Products and this is a SUPER FUN way to use this Medium in a more controlled way!!
 Then I Foiled the Centers of the Flowers using some Rose Gold Deco Foil and some Gina K Designs Spring Green Fancy Foil to the Leaves!! Its SUPER FUN to be able to use a Similar Foil color to the coordinate with the Color of Ink you used!! Think of ALL of the possibilities with the RAINBOW of Foils available from Gina K Designs and Deco Foil!! SQUEAL!! That makes me a HAPPY Stamper/Foiler!!
I Die Cut everything using the coordinating Dies and Created my Cards!! I used the NEW Harvest Texture Foil Mates for the Base of my Card Foiling it with some of the Gina K Designs Turquoise Sea Fancy Foil!! 


For my Next Card I Stamped the Images again using a combination of Gina K Designs Inks!! Using an Ink Dauber again to apply a controlled placement of darker Inks to add layers for a Dimensional looking Image!! I broke them out into each Leaf Image so you can see what Inks I've used for each one!! I took a Photo of both side of the Ink Cubes too so you can see the Ink names as well as the Colors!! Sometimes Visuals help me!! 

I foiled the Leaves using some Amber Watercolor Deco Foil and then used the Coordinating Dies to Die Cut them all out!! I arranged them into a Cluster using the Sentiment as my Grounding place to tie them all together!! I stamped and Embossed the Sentiment and used the Gina K Designs Nested Labels to Die Cut it out!! Adding some Sweet Corn Ink to the Center of the Sentiment to make it POP!! Then backed it with an Amber Foiled Label I created using some Deco Foil Toner Sheets!! A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Jewels finishes off the Design!! 
 I hope I've INSPIRED you!!?? Now its time to go and see what the rest of the AMAZING Design Team has created to inspire you with!! Don't forget to Leave comments along the way for a chance to WIN!! You could WIN either the 
"Graphic Sunflowers Set" OR the "Thankful Leaves Set"!!
