Snowflake Gift Box - Gina K Designs

Welcome back everyone! Today's project is for the Gina K Designs Monthly Mix Challenge over at Stamp TV. The theme this month is make anything but a card. Have you visited Stamp TV? Head over and join in the fun for a chance to win a gift certificate to Gina K Designs!! 

I created my own pattern paper to create a gift box. I used a variety of snowflakes from Holiday Wreath Builder Stamp set and Sparkling Snowflake Stamp set which is from the Stamp TV card kit. I am seriously in love with those snowflakes! I stamped them randomly on a piece of Seaglass Cardstock using Blue Lagoon ink. To stamp the background, I used a variety of acrylic blocks as this was easier then trying to stamp with the Misti. 

This ink and cardstock have such a gorgeous contrast! Once my background was complete, I die cut a gift box from the Scallop Treat Box die. I adhered my box together using Scor-Tape. This is a super strong adhesive so my box will stay put together. Gina's cardstock is nice and sturdy which makes the perfect cardstock for treat boxes! 

I finished off the box by stamping a sentiment from the Merry and Bright Stamp Set. I masked off part of the sentiment because I only wanted the top portion. Then stamped onto White cardstock with the Blue Lagoon ink. I die cut my sentiment from the Sentiment Label die and adhered to the front of my box with foam tape. 

I hope you'll head over to Stamp TV and join us! There is still time to play! You have until October 31, 11:59pm central time.

Cuddly Cats with Pretty Pink Posh

Welcome back everyone! Today I'm sharing a card and video using some fun products from Pretty Pink Posh. This card could be used for Halloween or Just for Fun.

You can follow along step by step with the video posted down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

To start my card, I'm going to color up my images. I stamp two of the Cuddley Cats from the set onto Neenah Solar White cardstock 80 lbs with copic friendly ink. Then color with copic markers and use the coordinating die to die cut them out.

For my front panel, I'm die cutting a star from a piece of White cardstock using the Stitched Star Die. This will leave a beautiful stitching around the shape that adds a little more interest to the front of the card. I'm also going to use the Simple Sayings Life stamp set and stamp my sentiment with black ink. Be sure to check out my video for a great tip on making sure you stamp straight.

For my background panel, I used a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and add Aged Mahogany and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink with the English Brick Wall Stencil. I wanted to give the sky a Halloween-ish feel so I ink blended Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot Distress Oxide. My front panel is popped up with foam tape and added to the ink blended panel for some fun dimension. Then I could add my Cuddly Cats by tucking them in the Stitched Star Window.

You can't make a card without adding some beautiful jewels! I used the Metallic Gold Jewels which reminded me of stars. 

I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration! Be sure to visit my Youtube channel to find more inspiration using Pretty Pink Posh products.

Yeti or Not! - Mama Elephant

 Welcome back everyone! I have a fun little Christmas scene to share with you today!

Today's card is using lots of Mama Elephants images! I combined Me and My Yeti with Cool Penguins stamp set. I stamped my images onto Neenah Solar white cardstock 80 lb with copic friendly ink. Then colored in with copic markers. I apologize I did not write down the colors. Sometimes you sit down to play and just get caught up in the moment.

For my background, I die cut some mountains from Stitched Mountain Borders with Fog Cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I topped the mountains with Pixie Dust Glitter cardstock to add sparkle.  I also used the Stitched Hillside borders die cut from Pixie Dust Glitter cardstock as well for a snow scene. I arranged my die cut pieces onto my cardstock that I ink blended with Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide.

To finish off the scene, I added this fun star banner from the Sentiments from a Yeti stamp/die set. How super fun in this?! I have been itching to use the Yeti stamp set since it was released and I can't wait to make more!

Fruit of the Season - Gina K Designs

Welcome back everyone! I have some more inspiration to share with you featuring the Fruit of the Season stamp set/kit from Gina K Designs.

For this card, I started by diecutting my front panel with poinsettia die. Using that as guide, I lined up the poinsettia stamp on another piece of white cardstock and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

I lined the entire back of my front panel with foam tape and ahdered to the embossed panel. This gives my card lots of dimension! 

My sentiment is heat embossed with silver embossing powder on Red Velvet cardstock.

Pulling in some more colors from the kit, I attached my completed front panel to an A2 size base made from Turquoise Sea. Something I've been buying a lot of lately is the precut panels from Gina K Designs. They are panels of heavy weight cardstock that all you have to do is create a score line to create an A2 size card. They are such a time saver! I have linked below. Reasonably priced too!

I finished it off by adding some jewels using the Gina K Connect glue. I love this unique color combination! How about you?

Fun & Festive with Simon Says Stamp!

It's time for the Simon Says Stamp Fun & Festive Release and it is jam packed with goodies!!

I have a video showing you how I created this card that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I'm focusing on the Stitching Tree from the release. I have to admit I haven't touched my stitching supplies in over 10 years! I used to love to cross stitch so this was really fun to play with. I remember why I loved to stitch. 

This die cuts out the holes in a triangle pattern but with only two sides and you can design your tree anyway you want. I opted to just go back and forth and then did around the edges for a border with green floss. 

I added in some snowflakes from the Stitched Snowflakes wafer die set cut from glitter cardstock. The sentiment is from the Arctic Christmas stamp set which I heat embossed onto Black cardstock with white embossing powder. To help hide the stitching in the back, I added my Moonlit Fog cardstock panel to an A2 size notecard with craft foam.

For the next card, I kept the design pretty much the same. 

I diecut my Stitching Tree onto Chili Pepper cardstock and used a light grey floss to stitch my tree. This time, I didn't do a border.

I added more glitter snowflakes around my tree just for some sparkle.

The sentiment is also from the Arctic Christmas stamp set. These would be so easy to mass produce. Stitching can be so relaxing and it's something you can do while waiting in the car for kids or watching tv.

Christmas Window Card - Lawn Fawn

Welcome back everyone! I have a fun little Winter/Christmas scene card to share with you all using products from Lawn Fawn!

I have a video I encourage you to check out that shows how I created this scene. You can view it down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

For the front of my card, I die cut out a window using the Wonderful Window die and sandwiched in a piece of Vellum to give the illusion of a window.

Using the embossing pen and Textured White Embossing Powder, I added some snow to my window sill. I also used the Textured Embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment onto Chili Pepper cardstock and using a sentiment from the Simply Winter Sentiments stamp set.

I am loving this textured cardstock! It works great for my cardfront so it looks like the outside of the house. I also added snowbanks using the Puffy Cloud Border die and Pixie Dust cardstock. My images are from the Toboggan Together and Holiday Helpers stamp set.

For the inside of the card, I tried to keep it fairy simple. I stamped images from Holiday Helpers and Christmas Dreams stamp set. You could really create a fun scene with all the different elements on these two stamp sets!

The sentiment is stamped from the Simply Winter Sentiments in Artichoke Ink.

I hope you enjoyed this card! Be sure to check out the video for more in-detail explanation how I created the window.

10 Cards 1 Kit - Love from Lizi October Kit

Thank you for joining me today! A little while ago, I shared an unboxing video of the Love from Lizi October Card Kit which you can view HERE if you missed it. Today, I'm sharing 10 cards 1 Kit video using the supplies from this kit. You can watch the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

If you've been following me for a while, you know I love creating backgrounds and getting inky. I don't normally do clean and simple. So for these cards, I went back to basics. I only pulled in a couple extra things but left the ink on the shelf.

A lot of the cards are featuring the pull aparts on the patterned paper and the Ephemera. I added foam tape to almost every card to add dimension. 

I also used the beautiful gold specialty paper and diecut out the leaves. They leave a beautiful etching on the cardstock. 

For the card below, I used a Gina K Designs Double Stitched Circle die to diecut out this pumpkin piece. 

As you can see, I kept all the cards pretty simple. There are gorgeous papers in the kit that I let speak for themselves on most of the cards.

It's nice to create cards without a real purpose in mind. These make great cards to send just to say or Hi to someone. 

These mushrooms from the Ephemera are adorable! 

I'm so into plaid right now.

I used some of the jewels to embellish the cards. The sentiment on the card shown above is from a pull apart that I just trimmed into little labels.

Hard to see in the picture but I use the thin strips of adhesive foil to add a small border around my pattern paper.

The card above is using some of the gold foil cardstock that was in the kit. I don't normally embellish with anything much bigger then a jewel but I had to try something with these leaves. They are made from actual tree bark and are surprisingly soft and light. 

Please be sure to check out my video HERE and then head over and pick up your kit! 

Thank you so much Love from Lizi for sending me this kit to play with. I really enjoyed it!
