The papers I used are from the Dear Lizzy Serendipity 6×6 paper pad. I really am thrilled with the way this card came together. I find the white boarders behind all the patterns just let the papers pop and make all the different patters not to busy on top of eachother.

Its Party Time

Its Party Time 1

Hey Everyone. It’s been a few days, dealing with mom stuff, sick kid all that jazz. Anyway on to the card, This one was fun, a couple of weeks ago the Kraftin’ Kimmie facebook group had an online crop and this was my card for one of the challenges.

I coloured this image from the Birthday Buddies Stamp set from Kraftin’ Kimmie with my Copics.

Its Party Time 2

I followed a sketch that was supplied for the challenge, I actually enjoy following other peoples sketches. I have always had a sketch book (I think its like 4 of them now) that I sketch out card or layout designs in when I am upstairs and cant go down to make card at that moment. But it was fun to follow someone elses.

I dug out this paper pad from Bo Bunny (Surprise Collection) it has lots of fun bright primary colours, which is something I don’t usually work with. It turned out awesome! I matted the patterned paper on black cardstock.

Hi Kraftin’ Kimmie Krop

KKS HI 1

Hey everyone. I am back with another card from the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps online Krop. This was challenge #2, the card sketch was laid out for a square card but I do more of the A2 size so I make it work for me.

The Pretty Little Pixies stamp set has been a favorite of mine again lately (I have owned it for a long time.) I coloured the image with my Prisma Color Pencils.

KKS hi 2

 

So second part of the challenge was pink, so I added that into my colouring, as well as chose the Basic Grey Highline collection for my patterned paper. I added just a little detail using a notebook punch from one of the knock out sets from American Crafts.

The Hi sentiment is from the Gold Foil Project life kit, and enamel dots finish off the outside of the card. Inside of the card I stamped “Wishing you a day that sparkles!” from the same stamp set.

Super Pig Birthday

Parker the pig 1

Hey everyone! I have a 4 year old son, that is by every definition of the word a super hero addict, seriously its insane all the stuff he knows about them. Anyway, back on point when I saw this set from Stamping Bella how could I not get it!

Parker the pig 2

 

I kept this card very simple, I coloured the super pig with copics and used the sentiment included on the set. The papers I used were from the Bo Bunny Surprise collection. The blue ribbon across the center is from my stash, I do beleive I picked it up at Dollarama here in canada. The black cardstock is out of my scrap bin I would guess it is American Crafts left over from a layout.

Graphic 45 Birthday card

DSC_0066

So a while ago I was thinking about how I have been been making so many cards lately, but yet I have used virtually no patterned paper. If you know me at all through twitter, or when I use to do Ustream shows, you would know that I have a ridiculous amount of patterned paper. So I went digging and pulled out some of my old patterned paper, this is a graphic 45 8×8 pad, I can’t remember off hand what collectons I used, but if you really want to know I will dig around and find out for you.

DSC_0067I did a bunch of different layers of paper on here, I used the small banner punch for the banner along the top, the lace punch along the bottom is a Martha Stewart punch.

DSC_0068

Making this card, reminded me why I love patterned paper, the simplicity of using nothing but patterned paper and a simple Happy Birthday stamp set. I guess that means I need to keep making more cards and try and get through some of the paper I have, that should only take me 5-10 years haha!

Star Birthday

sss bday

 

 

Hey everyone! It has been a while, I am hopefully going to be here and be blogging more frequently. But today I am here with a fun card!!!

 

The back round of this card was made with Hero Arts Gold embossing powder, and the flowers from the SSS Life is a Journey stamp set, I then took a piece of card stock slightly larger and covered the edge of it in the gold embossing powder as well and layered it in behind.

The shaker card was made using Doodle Bug Peacock Vellum, the large star inside is from Heidi Swapp’s Colour Magic star chipboard pieces (I don’t know if these are still available anywhere, I then filled the rest of the shaker card with Studio Calico tiny star wood veneers, and studio calico sequins in aqua and pink.

To close the shaker I put a piece of acetate on tip and wrapped washi around to hide the foam tape, the washi tape is from an older My Minds Eye line.

 

SSS Bday 3

 

The sentiment is from SSS Birthday Messages stamp set, again embossed using the Hero Arts Gold embossing powder. I, then, cut a slit on either side of the shaker element and fed a piece of May Arts Sheer ruffle edge ribbon in turquoise and tied it in a bow.

 

Hugs,

Jess

Star Birthday

Hey everyone! Here is a fun card I made inspired by the one Kristina Werner did on Jennifer McQuires blog a while back. I started with a piece of Neenah Desert Storm Paper that I folded into an A2 size card. I then took a Prima Star Stencil, and inked it with white ink, let that dry thoroughly then used Distress ink in, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, and Dusty Concord through the same stencil with it being slightly offset.

I then took a piece of vellum from my stash (it is provocraft vellum but Bazzil would work wonderfully), Heat embossed a happy birthday sentiment and a boarder from some stamp sets from my stash (I can’t remember which ones as I forgot to write them down, I appologize.) Cut a flag into the one side and glued it on, I then used white Scrappers Spool thread and wrapped it around a few times tying a bow. The sequins are from Neat and Tangled

Fantastic Feathers

Feathers 1

 

Yay for more birthday cards, its that time of year that I am doing trade shows and these are a big seller for me

I die cut the largest feather out of the Spellbinders  Shapeabilities Feathers in craft foam, I then took some Gelatos and mixed a small amount of them in a blue and a pink into some Golden light molding paste. I think adhered my craft foam stamp onto a block using temporary adhesive (this stamp is reusable as long as you clean it). I coated my “stamp” using a pallet knife with my tinted molding paste and stamped the feather, then dried it and stamped the second flower.

Feathers 2

 

I used a happy birthday sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Balloons Set  using Hero Arts Charcoal Shadow ink. Took the Prima Color Bloom Spray in Sunshine  and randomly splattered the color on the backround (I can not find the link for this in my list for at the bottom but I know SSS has it in stock)

 

Feathers 3

 

Finished it off with adding some random enamel dots from my stash
