Whimsy Stamps - Slimline Dog Bone

There is a new release today with Whimsy Stamps and I am sharing with you two new products: Slimline Dog Bone die and the Best Best stamp set!  How cute is this new Slimline Dog Bone die!   I decided to make a shaped card with this new die! 

I die cut the Slimline Dog Bone die set from white cardstock.  I stamped the dog bone  with the Super Dogs stamp and repeated the images to create my own patterned paper.   I then colored the images with my Copic markers.   I added a few of the sentiments around the panel with colored ink.  

To make the card more sturdy, I die cut two more panel from white cardstock and then from aqua cardstock.  I then punched a hole into the end of the bone and tied a ribbon through the panels to hold them together.  For my sentiment, I used the new Best Best stamp set.  This set allows you to create your own sentiments and I used Best Friend, perfect for the dog lovers out there! 

Come check out the new mini release at Whimsy Stamps!   Check out the photo below to see more inspiration from the Design Team with the new release!

SugarPea Designs - Go Bananas Birthday Card

 Hey there!  Tricia here with you today to share a fun birthday card.  I have never made a shadow box card but have always wanted to try.  I watched Jennifer McGuire's video and it was super easy.   I made my shadow box card with the Chunky Monkey stamp set along with the Leaf Canopy Stencil. 

I started with some light yellow cardstock and ink blended with yellow ink and ink blending tool over the panel using the Leaf Canopy Stencil.  It is cut slightly smaller than 4 1/4 inches by 5 1/2 inches.   I created two white panels measured 6 1/4 inches by 5 1/2 inches.  Score on each side at 1/2 inches and 1 inch.   

I die cut a circle from the front panel using the SugarCut Bamboo Garden.   I then stamped a sentiment from Chunky Monkey on the front.   I lined the back with some light green cardstock.  

I stamped my images from Chunky Monkey stamp set and colored with my Copic markers.   I cut some extra images to back the monkey and the tree limb.  Instead of using the acetate, I just adhered the monkey and limb to the front panel and the directly adhered the other two limbs directly to the yellow cardstock.  I adhered some crystal jewels to the panel for a little sparkle!   My first shadow box card!  Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day!

 Hey there! I am popping in to share some of the new Slimline products in the April release with Whimsy Stamps!   I have two of the products to share with you today, the new Slimline Zig Zag Edger die and the Slimline Embossing Folder Wave Lengths! 

I die cut the light blue cardstock with the Slimline Card Builder die and then ran it through again with the new Wave Lengths Embossing Folder.   I then die cut some white card stock with the new Slimline Zig Zag Edger die and added this to the main panel. 

I die cut a Pierced & Stitched Circle die with aqua cardstock and then stamped it with the Criss Cross Gingham Background Stamp.  I stamped the image from Gnome Friends (also released in April) and colored with my Copics.  

I stamped the sentiment from Gnome Friends onto a Quick Strips sentiment strip.  I added some flowers from the No See All Seasons Tree die set.  

Thank you for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti Creative Blog Hop - Choose Joy

Hey there!  Welcome to the Reverse Confetti April Creative Blog Hop!  

I used the Choose Joy stamp set and Choose Joy Confetti Cuts to create this spring card!   This is a stamp set that came out last year and it is one of my favorites!   Sometimes I just want to do some good old fashion stamping and this is one that you can have a lot of fun with!   I love the simple flowers and the great sentiments contained in this set!  

I started out by stamping some backgrounds with the flower and leaf images in the set.  I used only one of my panels today but I had so much fun stamping this out I made several to be used in future projects!  For the ink colors I used Buttercup, Magenta and Coral.   I stamped my background and then an extra panel to use for the Choose Joy Confetti Cuts.  

I die cut the panel with the Center Frame Cover Panel.   I then layered this onto an A2 white card base.  I stamped the Choose Joy onto a panel and trimmed it out.   I then stamped the wreath in Midnight ink onto white cardstock and then die cut with the Choose Joy Confetti Cuts and popped it up onto the sentiment.  

I added the die cut flower and leaf images onto the panel with foam tape.   Such a bright and cheerful card!   Ok, we have a huge blog hop for you today!   See the full list below but you next stop on the hop is Lisa Henke!   Be sure to check out all the inspiration in today's hop!

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge - Sweet Swans

 It's a new month and it is time for another Mix It Up Challenge with SugarPea Designs!   This is a challenge that you can use the inspiration photo or the sketch provided, or mix it up with both!   

I used the super cute Sweet Swans stamp set.  I like getting ahead on my card holidays, so I made a Mother's Day card.   I stamped the images from Sweet Swans out and colored with my Copic markers.   I die cut the images out with the Sweet Swans SugarCut.  

I used the Wave Stencil on dark blue cardstock and inked it with dark blue die ink.   I die cut this panel down with the Stitched Rectangles SugarCut.   I layered the blue panel onto a white Stitched Scalloped Rectangle SugarCut.  

I layered my the panel onto some light blue cardstock.  The sentiment is from Sweet Swans.  The little images from the stamp set went so nicely with the Mother's Day sentiment.   

That is it for me today!   Please join in the challenge on the SugarPea Design Blog.  You can see the post here!
