Happy Friday RC fam! I'm so excited to be back with a new project this week. We can never seem to have enough birthday cards as crafters, and the new hot foil combo birthday wishes die is perfect for creating some foiled goodness.

To start the card, I used the Folklore Cover Panel to die cut an A2 panel from pink cardstock. Next I used the new Sunny Flower stamp and die set to stamp the solid flowers and leaves a few times onto white cardstock. I used the coordinating Confetti Cuts to die cut these out.

Next, I arranged the flowers and leaves with foam tape so they would stack and have some dimension. Then I hot foiled the 'birthday wishes' with silver foil and die cut it using the matching Confetti Cuts.

I wrapped up the card design by adding clear droplets to the flower centers and sprinkled around the card base and leaves.

That is it! A very easy and cute card that can be made over with so many different colors. I hope this has inspired you to get out and go craft!

HOT FOIL | THANK YOU

Hello crafty friends, It's Joy here and I have a pretty foiled card for you today! Reverse Confetti has Hot Foil Plates in their collection now and they are so pretty. I used the Elements and the Thank You Hot Foil Plates along with the Flower Builder die. Let's get started.
To see the full video tutorial on YouTube click here or watch below.
 
 
I started by hot foiling with the Elements and Thank You hot foil plates. I used Aura foil from Spellbinders along with the Glimmer Hot Foil System. I like to use Glimmer Specialty cardstock, it takes the foil beautifully. 
I used the scallop foil plate from the Elements Hot Foil plate and foiled it three times, then used the coordinating die to cut it out. 
 
 
I trimmed down a piece of white cardstock smaller than an A2 size. I ink blended the bottom half with Cheeky ink. Then added the scallops, slightly overlapping and slightly offset from each other.
I die cut the flowers from the Flower Builder die from coral, peach and brown cardstocks. I adhered the smaller flower on top of the larger flower with foam tape, then I added the center of the flower. I added that to the card panel with foam tape and then tucked the leaves under the flower.
 
 
I added the sentiment on the top with foam tape, adhered a few gold sequins, added a white mat behind the card panel then adhered that to a white A2 size card panel.
 
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!
Hugs,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU

Hello!  The month of August for me is one that I need a ton of birthday cards!  I used the Happy Confetti Cuts along with the Happy Coordinates stamps set.   I die cut the word Happy from several different colors of cardstock and then stamped the letters with the Bloom stamp set with some light grey ink.  The letters were popped up on foam tape and layered onto the shadow die cut with foam tape. 

I layered the Happy Confetti Cuts onto a die cut circle from the Square & Circle Frame Confetti Cuts.  This was layered onto a Peekaboo Cover Panel.  I lifted up the little die cuts and what you cannot see is that I layered a panel of pink cardstock underneath the panel so as you turn the card, you see the little bits of pink peeking out! 


The sentiment is from the Happy Coordinates stamp set and was white heat embossed and trimmed down.  I layered onto the circle die cut with foam tape.  I then added several clear sparkle sequins that captured the colors in the Happy die cut perfectly!   


 One birthday card down! Many more to go!   Thank you for stopping by! 

BACK TO BASICS

Hello crafty friends! Lien here and today we're going back to basics, but with a twist! Don't forget to watch the video below for more details!

Since I started cardmaking I've always been in love with pattern stamping. It's great to stretch your supplies and use those small images in your stamp sets. I'm going to stamp my pattern on a white panel diecut with the Postal Cover die set. Using a diecut with a fun edge like this one is a great way to spice up simple cards, it gives you a wonderful frame without adding any bulk. I masked off the edges, using the stitched detail as a guide and then started stamping.

I'm using the Dog Days stamp set today but I told you there would be a twist and here it is: we're first stamping a shadow or silhouette image of the stamp using the . I die cut the sunglasses die from some crafting foam, put adhesive on the back to adhere it to an acrylic block and voilà, we've got a stamp! I stamped it in a bunch of bright colors all over the panel and then left it to dry for a little bit. I stacked up the Layered Friend die with three layers of white cardstock and topped it off with a layer of black.

Once I was sure the first layer of inking was dry, I went in with the actual sunglasses stamp and stamped it over all of the silhouettes I'd stamped previously. I used embossing ink for this. Once that was done, I left the masking tape in place while sprinkling on the embossing powder. Before heatsetting it, I remove it. The tape will leave the area slightly sticky so the embossing powder would stick on the masked areas, but I know that the tape I use doesn't react well to heat, it will cling harder to the paper and be more difficult to remove, that's why I remove it in between the two steps.

To finish it off, I added a small cardbase to the back of the panel so it won't show through the cut out edges. I glued the sentiment in place along with a few silver gems. To set the sentiment apart from the busy background, I added wink of stella clear glitter brush pen and glossy accents to really make this card shine. You can see all of the steps above explained in the YouTube video!

Happy August friends! It's Dana here today sharing my project for the Stock Your Stash Challenge. The theme this month is Wedding. 


I started my card by stamping my images from the Botanical stamp set in VersaMark ink and heat setting them with gold embossing powder. I colored the flowers and foliage with a few Copic markers (R01, R11, R12, G20, YG61) and used the coordinating Botanical dies to cut them out. 


Next, I ink blended my card panel with Distress Oxide ink in Saltwater Taffy. I then added a few gold splatters and set it aside to dry. To create my scallop detail I used the Hot Foil Elements die set and gold foil. I love the look of foiling on a wedding card, so pretty! Lastly, I used the Word Up stamp set and Word Duo: Love die for my sentiment. I attached all of my elements to my card panel with foam adhesive and liquid glue to finish my card.


Thanks for joining me today and I hope I inspired you to play along with this month's challenge.

Enjoy your day,

Dana

Hi, RC fans! Today I'm sharing a card inspired by the August Stock Your Stash Challenge, the theme of which is Wedding. Special Day Wedding card by Andrea Shell | Little Bits Envie Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti I started this card by creating the patterned paper in the background. Onto light blue cardstock, I repeatedly stamped the bouquet from the Roses stamp set. After filling the panel, I diecut it with the Postal Cover Panel Confetti Cuts and adhered it to a white card. Special Day Wedding card by Andrea Shell | Little Bits Envie Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti I used the new Little Bits Envie Confetti Cuts to create that cute envelope. On the lower flap, I heat-embossed a sentiment from the Hatbox Florals set. I arranged some tulle onto the card and affixed the envelope with foam tape. Special Day Wedding card by Andrea Shell | Little Bits Envie Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti To embellish the envelope, I used the floral sprig from Hatbox Florals. After heat-embossing the image, I colored it with colored pencils, using Gamsol and a paper stump to blend the pencil. I fussy-cut the sprig and attached it with foam squares. Special Day Wedding card by Andrea Shell | Little Bits Envie Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti The sentiment inside the envelope is from the Big Heart Sentiments set. I trimmed a square from white cardstock, heat-embossed the sentiment, and tucked it into the envelope. I finished the card with a scattering of flat-backed pearls.

PARTY ON!

Hello! Welcome back to the blog. Today I'm sharing a fun card inspired by one of my favorite Summer scarves. One true source of color inspiration is clothing. Designers have spent lots of time choosing the best color combos and all you need to do is open your closet and find something that you love to inspire you!

Royal blue and Mustard yellow are my colors and some years ago I purchased the below, lightweight flowy scarf to pair with my Summer outfits. It was the inspo behind today's card which I wanted to feel as Summery-y as possible.

For the card I used the Deco Cover Panel and cut it from yellow, blue and tan cardstock colors to make an abstract beach scene as my background.. Then I cut the yellow and tan panels -- the yellow from the top and the tan from the bottom so that I could layer them on top of the blue panel. I made sure to lineup the design so that it would appear seamless on the background.

Next, I stamped the Dog Days stamp set multiple times with Copic friendly ink and colored in all the images and cut them out with the coordinating Confetti Cuts.

I selected the dog with the innertube :) and palm trees, beach ball and sea star to layer on top of the background with foam tape. I took more tan cardstock and heat embossed the matching Dog Days Sentiment with black pigment ink and clear embossing powder.

Lastly, I covered everything with a glitter pen to add extra shimmer. I have extra colored pieces leftover that I can save for a future card or cards. The little doggies are so cute and I definitely will want to make more Summer cards soon!

YOU ARE THE BEST

 Hi crafty friends, it's Joy here and I have a quick and simple card for you today. I used the Sunny Flower stamp and die along with the Deco Cover Panel Die to create this design. I hope you enjoy!

To see the full video tutorial on YouTube click here or watch below.

 

I used a Misti to stamp my flowers, I kept them simple by using the solid, outline and one center piece for the images. I stamped the solid flowers with a lighter color, then the centers and outline are with a slightly darker color. I used teal, yellow and orange and green for the leaves. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

 

 

Then I die cut the background using the Deco Cover Panel Die on white cardstock. I ink blended the bottom half with pink ink, to give the background some more interest. 

I stamped the sentiment from the Sunny Flower stamp set with black ink and trimmed it down with a paper trimmer.

 

 

I adhered the flowers and leaves, making sure to cover the harsh line between the ink and cardstock on the background. I used foam tape behind some of the flowers and the sentiments. I added detail to the flowers and leaves with a white gel pen.

 

 

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

SWEET ‘N SPOOKY

Hello!  Tricia here with you today.  I am sharing a spooky sweet card getting myself geared up for Halloween.  I know it is early but I love Halloween and I need to start planning! I love to decorate inside and outside of the house with all things spooky.  


I used the Picture Perfect stamp set to create my movie night with a horror moving playing in the background! I used the matching Picture Perfect Confetti Cuts to die cut the images out. I used Halloween Gnomes to create the spooky movie scene.   I masked off the frame and stamped some of the tiny images from Halloween Gnomes and colored with my Copic markers.   


I ink blended with Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers and Prized Ribbon.  I then splattered the background with white paint.   I added some crystal glaze to the sign and heart on the license plate.  I added some Distress Stickles in Icicles and then finished it off with my sparkle and white gel pen.   I layered the panel under a black frame using the Stitched Notes & Frames Confetti Cuts.  


Here is to getting your spook on!  Thanks for stopping by! 

 

MY REASON TO SMILE

Hello crafty friends! Lien here with a clean and simple mini slimline card with a bright pop of color!

For this card I'm getting out some new products and some old goodies. I'm starting out by making the rainbow flower. I die cut the necessary pieces from the Flower Builder die set a few times from thick scrap cardstock and also from cardstock for ink blending. I stack the pieces together, I made two leaves, two flower halves and one flower center. I add the ink after they're stacked together because the pieces are a lot more sturdy then.

Now for the background I'm using a really fun masking trick. I want to use the Wildflowers stamp set for the background, but it's not tall enough for my mini slimline design. So to remedy that, I want to stamp it twice. I stamp the image first at the bottom of my cardstock in light grey ink. Usually I would now cut a mask and then stamp the image again a little higher, but it's a very intricate image. Instead I just used the Coordinating confetti cuts from a scrap piece of cardstock and taped that in place over top of the stamped image. It's not going to be perfect, there will be a white border around the first image, but it' barely noticeable!

I added a sentiment from the amazing Little Bits Sentiments stamp set in the bottom right corner in Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed it in clear embossing powder. I then assembled all my flower pieces and laid them out on my card. When I was happy with where they were, I penciled in a flower stem. I traced that with a black fineliner and then adhered the flower and leaves. To finish it up I added some Bubbles from Little Things from Lucy's Cards, and that's it!
