Thank you card - using Fresh Cut Wreaths-WPlus9

Hey everyone! Today I made a Thank you card with one of my favorite WPlus9 stamp sets "Fresh Cut Wreaths". I love that this stamp set has different wreaths and flowers to layer. You can stamp all the same color or mix them up. I die cut my pattern paper and my white panel using the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle dies.

For my flowers I decided to use Simon Says Stamp coral reef ink to coordinate with my pattern paper. 
I stamped my sentiment on a banner from WPlus9 "Basic Banners" stamp set and used the die from the set to cut it out. This banner fits perfect across the wreath! 

For my final touch I added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins. Who doesn't love a little sparkle, right! 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!

Masculine Card / Loads of Love

Today I have an adorable card for that special man in your life! Masculine cards are sometimes hard to dream up but this cute truck from Hero Arts made the cut! 

I stamped the truck with memento ink and then masked it off so I could ink my background piece. I used distress inks to make a blue sky and then cut my green card stock to look like a grassy hill. 
The one big heart in the back of the truck made me want to add more hearts, so I die cute a few more
out of different patterned papers and added them to the background. Some are inlaid and some are
popped up. To finish the card of I stamped the Loads of Love for sentiment and die cut the word YOU from the Avery Elle die. I love how this card turned out.

I hope you have a great day and have been inspired to make some masculine cards. Happy Stamping.

Hugs :)

Shaker Card using Fintastic Friends

Today I am using this cute fish tank image from Lawn Fawn's "Fintastic Friends" stamp and die set to make a shaker card.
I stamped the tank with memento ink and colored in the sand and water with copics. Then I stamped all the plants, fish and castle. After coloring all the images I die cut them with the coordinating dies! 
I cut a frame using the stitched rectangle die from SSS and then cut the tank out of the center. This was my window for my shaker card. 

The card was embossed with a chicken wire embossing folder. I left about an inch of the bottom of the card out of the embossing folder so I could stamp my sentiment. I really like the way the thin blue strip of card stock tied in the blue from the tank. 
Here is a close up of all the shaker bits I used. I have some PPP sequins and gold flakes from PTI Make It Market Kit "Shakers & Sprinkles".

I love the way this turned out! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to try your own shaker card.  Happy stamping!

Love You A Latte Card featuring Lawn Fawn

Today a have a card featuring the Love You A Latte stamp set and dies from Lawn Fawn! I couldn't resist this set when I saw it. The images are so cute along with the sentiments that look like steam coming from the cup of joe! How fun right!
I started by embossing my card base with this really cute heart embossing folder on craft card stock. 
Next I used two different sizes of tag dies and cut the larger one from a piece of patterned paper and a smaller one from craft card stock and adhered them together. I added some fun foam on the back and added to the front of my card for a bit of dimension!

I stamped the coffee cup with memento ink and colored it in with some copic markers. I then used the coordinating die to cut the image out and popped it up on the tag. The sentiment was heat embossed using white embossing powder which made it pop off of the craft card stock. 

For my final touches I stamped a few coffe beans and added enamel dots. I absolutely love this stamp set and will be using it a lot!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!

Card for Dad -Paper Smooches "My Guy"

With Fathers Day around the corner I decided to make my Dad a card.  I love the little red sports car from the Paper Smooches "My Guy" stamp set. What Dad wouldn't love this card, right.
I thought it would be neat to use this chevron stamp to make a background that looked like tire prints. I used crumb cake card stock and baked brown sugar ink from Stampin' Up! 

I cut a piece of striped patterned paper and a black frame using the stitched circle dies and adhered to the center of my card. I the colored my car image using copics and popped it up on top of my circle. My sentiment is also from the "My Guy" stamp set. 

I love how these stamps and sentiments are perfect for masculine cards!

Hope you liked it and thanks for stopping by. Happy Stamping!

Happy Birthday Card for Guys

Today I made a fun masculine birthday card using some fun images from the Avery Elle "We Go Together" stamp set.
I stamped the images using Memento ink so I could color them with copics. I stamped them and the greeting on a stitched circle die from SSS. I love these dies! 
I layered a polka dotted piece of DSP on top of the black card stock and added a strip of red card stock for a pop of color.

My sentiment is from two different stamp sets, Birthday Ballons from SSS and Simply Said You from Avery Elle. I love to mix up stamps for my sentiments. 

I hope you like my card today and that you are inspired to make more masculine cards! Thanks for visiting and Happy Stamping.

Hey There Card - Chubby Chums

Today I am using this cute cat image from  the Paper Smooches "Chubby Chums" stamp set. After I stamped it using Memento Ink I colored him using some copic markers. This stamp set also comes with the coordinating dies which makes it super easy to cut out! 
I then die cut a stitched circle to stamp my sentiment on and attached the cat to the circle. My sentiment is also from a Paper Smooches stamp set called Sentiment Sampler. This set is an awesome one to have because it has about fifteen different sentiments in it. I also love the different fonts used in it.

My card is a top folding A2 size and I layered a solid piece of card stock and a designer piece from a 12x12 paper pack from DCWV. I cut both of these with the stitched rectangle dies from SSS. 

To finish my card off I added some enamel dots scattered around that coordinated with my DS paper. I love how bright and cheery it turned out. 

Thanks for dropping by and Happy Stamping!😊
