IBFS Thanks A Lot

Hello everyone,
Today I have a fun Sunflower card I created for I Brake for Stamps using the Beautiful Sunflower stamp found here, its from the New Flower & Strawberry sheet of stamps. I stamped it ,colored it, and then fussy cut it out.

 I LOVE all the stamps on this sheet! I did stamp my image in Memento black ink, and then colored with copics yellows,greens and a brown. Next I fussy cut the sunflower out, that way it could lay on the oval along with the IBFS sentiment.

The IBFS sentiment I used is from the set "Thinking , Happy, Get Well, Thanks" for this one I did airbrush it, and added some pearls in bronze.

Ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon , Yellow ribbon came from the June Ribbon Club Assortment, and the brown is a seam binding.
For more Beautiful stamps, please visit the I Brake For Stamps Store HERE!

Hello everyone!
Happy Tuesday to all! Today's card was created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful
Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon in Turftan Brown from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store. LOVE this ribbon, its so pretty and easy to use for bow making!

 I also created my card for The Project Bin using the Beautiful stamp from the "Bazinga!" Collection. hehehehe, some super cute stamps in this set I do have to say! For my sentiment I did use SU! pens to color the sentiment in a red & brown. super easy to do. But when using a pen on clear stamps, I always take an eraser to the stamp first, so the pen will stay on nicely, so you get a clean stamped image. Pretty fun!!!
Card Measures is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
cut white card stock at 5 1/2" x 11" score at 5 1/2"
layer 1- Kraft card stock cut at 5" x 5" then stripes  dp cut at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4"
Layer 2- 4 1/4" x 3 1/4" for kraft cs. Dp is cut at 4"x 3"
Layer 3- Spellbinders frames, I did dust the white sentiment one.
Also used a CheeryLynn die underneath, its cut out in white
Spellbinders in corners
Buttons are vintage, I did add some thick thread to them so they look sewn on.

Flowers used are from JustRite Papercraft!!! LOVE these beauties! they are from DIE-05022 Floral Trio One Dies(used #1) I cut 6 of them out. colored them up with red distress ink by dusting them. I then added some glitter glass to the centers, set aside to dry.
 The brown beautiful leaves are from Really Reasonable Ribbon, Bonnie does carry different ones and you can find those here!

I had created this for Splitcoaststampers Free 4 all challenge a couple weeks back, and wanted to share it on my blog today. I absolutely LOVE JustRite Papercrafts stamps & Dies, and cant wait to share more of my designs with you using their products.

I'm keeping todays post short ,as I am busy getting ready for our big trip to California to see our daughter, and our New Granddaughter Chloey! Cant wait, im so excited! I am counting down the days.... :)
For my main panel(window) I did airbrush, and stamp using JustRite At the beach clear stamp set. I ended up stamping the greenery, after I airbrushed, then stamped the Happy Birthday. The other sentiment was stamped on one f the circles from the die set JustRite Four in a Square. I also stamped up the seashells and used them to place on the window.

Beauty begins.....


 Awwww LOVE this sentiment as its so true!!! Love being myself, and would never want to pretend to be something other than just that! This sentiment is one of the Many Beautiful sentiments from The Project Bin!!! I LOVE everyone of their stamps, as they are so unique and beautiful!

 Lately I have been trying to work with some different color combo's and some have colors I really don't work with often, like Orange. hehehehe. Its one of my least favorite colors to work with, but im finding that when I challenge myself to use these colors like YELLOW, I am happy with the results. And this color combo works well. I took the colors from the design paper. it has a maroon , red,orange, and green in it. It does have my favorite color in it as well (PINK) but I did not use that color in my colors for today.

The sentiment I used today came from the Project Bin's "Wise Women" set. I stamped it in CTMH Pansy Purple on white card stock, then cut that out with a spellbinders frame die(airbrushed it),next i stamped the sentiment again on another piece of white card stock in SU! Riding Hood Red ink, I cut the banner "Yourself" out and popped it up on the main sentiment area. The fancy  Beautiful frame behind the sentiment is from JustRite Papercraft and is called Heart & Frame Dies 05016 and was cut out in white!
Design paper is from American Crafts!
Ribbon is from RRR and is the Satin ribbon with grosgrain edge.
Thank you for looking and have a lovely Sunday!
hugs to all,

Today I am sharing my card created for Really Reasonable Ribbon & JustRite Papercraft! On my card for today I used Beautiful Ribbon & Trim from RRR, and all dies and stamps from JustRite Papercraft! LOVE how this card turned out for today!
 Love the SWEET Floral flowers I created here! I also used Really Reasonable Ribbon Ruby Red Satin ribbon, and Moss Green Leaves. I wanted to add a bow to this, but it was covering up the paper,dies, and all the sweetness of this card, so instead I decided to tuck my bows under the dies :) hehehe that way it didn't take away from this card.

Card Measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
white card stock is cut at 5 1/2" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2"
Layer 1 - Black card stock cut at 5" x 5" then green dp is cut at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4"
Layer 2- Black cut at 4" x 4 1/2" then black polka dots cut at 3 3/4" x 4 1/4"
Layer 3- black cut at 4" x 4" then the strawberry freshly picked dp at 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" now add sewing to all
Layer 4- SENTIMENT (JustRite Congrats Card Basics CR-05068) stamped in memento black ink for the (Happy Graduation) and oval frame stamped in Kiwi Kiss SU! ink. then cut out using the Ovals from JustRite A2 Card Front Basics Dies(DIE-05047) next layer in black behind this is the JustRite Heart & Frames Dies(DIE-05016) Heart shaped one is in black, then the large frame is in white(Cut apart) for the beautiful frame behind.
Flowers- were cut out using JustRite Floral Trio One Dies(number #2)cut in a random design paper that I hardly ever use, but for flower cuts. its a cream /blueish color. I then airbrushed each flower(8 of them) with copic RV23 and then dusted with distress ink Fire Brick. Next I added a little button to the centers.
Greenery- was done using Really Reasonable Ribbons Moss Green leaves, and then adding in JustRite Papercraft die cuts from Flower Garden Dies(DI-05067) using #3, #6, #7, #8(cut in green card stock) and then distressed those in Shabby shutters distress ink.
Ribbon Loops- Really Reasonable Ribbons Satin Ruby Red ribbon, and created 2 bows, and then turned them into looped ribbon treatments for my card.
 Inside of my card I used the DCWV Freshly Picked stack, and stamped my sentiments onto it. Super Simple for an easy and quick inside fix.

Did someone say Sailing?

 Awwww LOVE this sentiment!!!!
Hello everyone and Happy Friday to all!!! Yes its the WEEKEND!!! wooohooo :) Today's Manly card was created for The Project Bin & Really Reasonable Ribbon! Yes its that time again for our challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog, and this time around its a MANLY challenge :)

Really Reasonable Ribbons May assortment is what I used on my card for today, LOVE the RED, WHITE, & BLUE! So I decided to keep with the Manly theme challenge, and use the ribbon for banners with the buttons. I thought it worked perfect!!! LOVE all the ribbons Bonnie had put together in this assortment for May!
I LOVE this sentiment from The Project Bin "Anchors Away stamp set" as it is so sweet, and reminds me of being on the water in our boat. Its been a LONG time since we have taken our boat out on Utah lake, as the water level is super low, and we don't want to take any chances of ruining it. We do have tons of lakes here in Utah, and hope to be bringing it out to them this year. :) I also love the sailors cap with this sentiment, isn't is just too cute!???

The dp I used is a mix match of different ones I have in my stash. I did use Bazzill Bling Blank Check, and Then American Crafts Red. I added sewing in Blue and red to compliment my card. Love adding sewing as its an embellishment in itself!

DIE-05065 is the A2 Butterfly card front. this is the one you see the small butterflies on. its absolutely Gorgeous, and I cut it out using black card stock. I did cut it down a bit, so it would fit perfectly on my card here. I used the Glass Technique on my butterflies, but also used airbrushing as well. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way this turned out, and how beautiful the butterflies look in person. I also used some vintage beads on the centers of the butterflies. it gives a nice look to them.
Butterflies are airbrushed using copic BG72 then using the glass technique on them

Dream Big Telescoping Card

Hello everyone, today I am sharing my Dream Big Telescope Fold Card designed for JustRite Papercraft, using their beautiful Stamps and dies! My card was also created for a few different challenges, and I will have them listed below!

LOVE making the Telescope cards, they are super fun and easy to create. I did use the Beautiful Stamps from JustRite Papercraft and they are called Congrats Card Basics(CR05068), those are all the sentiments, and iron works.
Next I used the Small Oval Wishes stamps(CR-05053) and that would be one of the decorated oval stamps on the top part of my card. Also used the coordinating dies called "Joy Oval Frame Dies(DIE-05049) and to back the oval Dream Big layer, I used the JustRite Heart & Frame Die(DIE-05016) I cut 2 of those out in cream(small heart die) and distressed them and placed them behind the small oval die cut piece. Love how it frames that area perfect!

 For my card base I used random spellbinders dies, that I have in my stash. Card measures 4 x 4 closed and 4 x 9 open. I love that the bottom part has a hidden message area, I do have a video showing how to create this card, and you can find that HERE in my Tutorials!

Flowers are JustRite Floral Trio One Dies(DIE-05022) #3 cut 6 times and distressed with Red Ink to give this look. I also airbrushed a bit of the flowers. Lastly I did do my Glass Flower technique and added a half backed pearl to each flower.

Embellishments - Ribbon from my stash, old old vintage button, and then a part of a feather!
 In the photo above you can see where you can do your writing and hide it. My writing is sloppy, so I would want it hidden....hehehehehehehe LOL anyways it is a little messy. :)
