CC Designs Bitty Bunnies

Hello!  Hope your Monday is going well.  Today, I'm sharing a sweet Easter card featuring the NEW Bitty Bunnies stamp set from CC Designs!  This adorable set includes several sweet bunnies, coordinating sentiments, and scene building images- everything you need for your spring cards!  

For my card, I started with some patterned paper and layered it on to my card base.  Then I trimmed a piece of polka dot paper into a thick strip for the center of the card.  I die cut some circles and created a cute little bunny scene in the middle of it and attached that to the polka dot paper using foam tape.  Then I added a scalloped strip of pink across the bottom and finished it off with a die cut sentiment strip and some enamel dots.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Picket Fence Studios Beautiful Girl Slim Lines Cards with Larisa

Hello! Larisa here. I hope everyone is keeping warm!  Today, I'm sharing two slim line cards featuring the new release and a couple of the beautiful girl stamps. 

For my first card, I used the Slim Line Die Cutting System to cut my card base. Then I cut a smaller panel from white card stock and used the new Slim Line English Brick Wall Stencil to add a tan brick wall effect. I die cut a circle from the bottom right hand corner and backed with a black mat. I stamped out my beautiful girl image, colored her up with Copics, and die cut her out using the coordinating die. Then I added some gold thread behind her and popped her in the middle of the circle using foam tape. I added the New Seriously Word Die just above the image and stamped my sentiment just below. 

For my next card, I used The Slim Line Die Cutting System to cut my card panel. Then I used the stencil and some Pink Carnation Paper Glaze to create a soft background on a strip of white card stock. Once it was dry, I trimmed it to fit my panel and adhered it down. Then I heat embossed my sentiment in white sand added a strip of gold glitter card stock. For my image, I stamped her out, colored her up with Copics, and cut her out using the coordinating die. Then I popped her up with foam tape.

Not 2 Shabby Shop Valentine Treat Bag

 Hello!  Today, I'm sharing a fun little Valentine Treat Bag using the Holiday Latte Digital Stamp from the Not2ShabbyShop.  I just love that this stamp can be used year round for all sorts of occasions.  To begin, I started with a food-safe treat bag.  Then I printed out my image, colored it up, and fussy cut it out.  I layered it on top of some patterned paper, some printed die cuts, and some eyelash trim.  Using some foam tape, I added it to the right corner of my bag.  Then I layered on a "love" 3D sticker and finished it off with some enamel hearts.  I also added some stickles glitter to the whipped cream and some ribbon to tie the bag shut.  

Wishing you all a very Happy Valentine's Day!  Thanks for stopping by!  

Picket Fence Studios February 2021 Release!

 Hello!  Happy Valentine's Day!  Today is also Release Day at Picket Fence Studios!!!  Another fabulous release full of  amazing stamps and dies!  Be sure to check it all out HERE in the shop!  

For my first inspiration card, I used the NEW Seriously Word Die and Life Sucks Without You Stamp Set.  These two work so well together!  I paired them with the Wherever You Go Stamp set and colored it up in different shades of blue.  Then I layered on my die cut sentiments and mounted the whole thing on some black card stock.  Such a quick and easy card that really packs a punch!  

For my next card, I used the NEW Nothing Short of Amazing Stamp Set.  Let me tell you, that is the perfect name for this set.  This image is gorgeous and I had so much fun coloring it up!  I used the no-line coloring technique with my Copics and added my die cut sentiment to the bottom of the image.  A couple of white buttons in the corner and some black card stock layered behind finish this card off.  

My last card features the new Hey You Word Die.  I LOVE this die!!!!  It's a total MUST for your stash.  To create may card, I used the Slim Line Die Cutting System.  I die cut some patterned, layered it up, and added my images.  Then I popped my die cut sentiments on top and added some scattered sequins.

The Greeting Farm February 2021 Release Preview Day #2


Hello!  Another day of fun previews from The Greeting Farm.  All new stamps will be available next week on the 15th.  Today, I'm featuring a new set called Let's Go!  This set is absolutely adorable and includes several bunny images, a hot air balloon, and sentiments to match!  

For my card, I decided to create a magical night-time scene.  I used some patterned paper in my stash for the background and added a die cut grass and fence to the bottom of the panel.  Then I colored up my images, fussy cut them out, and popped them onto my scene using foam tape.  Then I stamped out my sentiment, cut it out with a circle die, and tucked it in behind my balloon.  Some Stickles Glitter Glue to highlight the clouds finishes the card off.  So much fun!
