The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Birthday Dreams Card

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a beautiful birthday card to share with you.


Do you ever have those cards or projects that you create that you just absolutely love?  Well, for me this would be one of those cards.  I know there isn't much stamping but the Cotton Blend Vintage Print - Pink Floral ribbon and the Venise Lace 1.75" - Valentina Ivory are so gorgeous they kind of do all the work for you.  I added the lace and ribbon to a piece of kraft cardstock and then I mounted that to an ivory base top fold card.  I also used some Pink 1.25" Silk Ribbon by May Arts to wrap around the kaft paper and tie a pretty bow.  I used some 3D Foam Squares when mounting the kraft cardstock to the ivory base.  


Here is a close up of the ribbon and lace.  I love how the edges of the ribbon are frayed.  The ribbon and lace together have kind of a shabby chic look and feel.


For the sentiment I used one of the stamps from JustRite® Papercraft CR-02106 Birthday Floral Vintage Labels Eight and Nine Clear Stamps and stamped it using Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  To create the die cut I used S5-218 A2 Devine Eloquence from Spellbinders Paper Arts®.  Then I used Memento Rich Cocoa to ink the outer edges of the die cut.  I added a couple Melissa Frances Cream Pearls and some flowers from the  Petaloo Botanica Collection Pink.


I hope you enjoyed the card today as much as I enjoyed creating it!  As always you can click on all the photos to enlarge them and all of the supplies are listed below with links.

Royal Rose Bezel - Spellbinders - A Gilded Life Collection

Hello blogging friends!  Today, I have a jewelry piece to share with you using one of the bezels for A Gilded Life Collection from Spellbinders Paper Arts®.


I designed a beautiful necklace using the GL2-005 Rose Medallion-Gold bezel by A Gilded Life.  This is one of those pieces that I had so much fun creating and I love how it turned out!  I think A Gilded Life collection is one of my favorites.  All of the pieces in the collection are so beautiful.


I painted the the entire piece with white spray paint.  Then I added pink and blue paint and lightly buffed the piece with steel wool until some of the paint was removed to reveal the metal.  Then I sealed the pieces with a clear spray.  Next I added all of the crystals.  I used clear and AB crystals.


I die cut the digital image using GLD-003 Crown Circle Die.  Then I glued the image in place and added a glossy top coat.


I added the bezel to some pink silk ribbon for a quick and easy necklace.

I hope you enjoyed the jewelry project and I inspired you to try some of the bezels and create your own unique jewelry pieces.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi

Special Delivery Baby Card

Hello everyone!  Today is going to be a quick post--I have several projects that I am working on and need to get done but I wanted to share this pretty pink baby card with you.


Here is a card that I made for some friends of ours that recently had a sweet baby girl.  The coloring was quick and easy.  I stamped the baby buggy image from CR-04810 Bundle of Joy Vintage Labels Five Clear Stamps using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Then I used Spectrum Noir marker PP1 to color the baby buggy.  To create the die cuts I used S4-425 Elegant Ovals and S4-418 Labels Thirty-Six.  The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.


Here is a close up of the image and the die cuts.  I added a small pink bow with a pearl center to the baby buggy.  For some dimension I added 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™.  


for the background I used E3D-018 European Tapestry M-bossabilities Folder to emboss the paper.  I inked the folder with Angel Pink Memento ink and then embossed the paper.  I also inked the edges of the paper.  To add a little sparkle I went over the embossed areas with my Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen.  


Well that's it for me today.  I've got to get back to work and get some projects done. :) I'll be making another baby card soon--my cousin and her husband are at the hospital right now and they just had a baby boy!  Their first child and he was born on my Grandpa's birthday so that's pretty neat too.  A Happy Day all the way around!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi

Family Reunion - Celebrating Grandpa's Birthday - Family Farm - Barn Board Bezels

Hello everyone!  This past weekend was a little busy around here.  On Saturday we had our family reunion and then on Sunday we celebrated my Grandpa's 84th birthday!  It was so great to see all of the family together--to visit and catch up with everyone, have some wonderful food (we had a hog roast), play games, look at old photo, share memories of the past and create new memories.

For the past few years when everyone is home for the reunion we always try to get a few pictures of  my aunts and uncles with my grandpa.


We were taking a few practice shots before my grandpa came outside.  My mom is the first one and then it's my uncle John, aunt Gail (she's the crafty one), aunt Cory, and my uncle Brian.  


Here is a picture with my Grandpa and all of his kids.


This one is my Grandpa and Grandma.  I can't believe he is going to be 84 on Wednesday!  He is still very active and young at heart.  I don't even have the words that could come close to describing how much I love him and how special he is.  He has always been such a huge part of my life.  We are the only two in the family who are left handed (southpaws).  As he would say we are the only ones in our right minds--LOL!  When I was little I was such a tomboy and I was always tagging along with my grandpa on the farm.  I loved being around all of the animals and nature and hanging out with him.  He has taught me so many important life lessons, to be kind, what it means to be a good person, to be true to yourself, to love, to forgive, to believe in God and how important family is--an many, many more things over the years.


Here is a picture of my mom and grandpa.  I love this picture!  


Here is a picture of the barn on the family farm that I took at the last reunion.  This is the farm that my grandpa lived on for many years and after he retired my uncle John who had farmed with my grandpa for years took over the farm and his family moved there.  The barn is no longer standing--it was just getting too old.  But my uncle John still has a lot of the barn boards.  He has made some fantastic pieces out of the barn board.  Both of my uncles and my grandpa are great with wood working!  In fact my uncle John made me a wine tote (for wine bottles) and a few frames for my birthday.  I'll have to post some pictures of them.  Anyways I have been wanting to make something with the barn board and put my own spin on it but I couldn't figure out what to create until just recently and then one day it hit me--I could make some bezels with pieces of the barn board.  I could preserve them forever in ICE Resin! :)  So I thought it would be perfect timing with everyone home to make some bezels for my mom, aunts, uncles and my grandpa.


These are the bezels I created.  I re-sized the picture of the barn so it would fit inside the bezel.  Then I had my husband help me to cut off some thinner pieces of the barn board and then I cut them down to size to fit in the bezel and frame the picture.  I added a piece of old book paper behind the photo because I knew there would be a few small little places that wouldn't be covered by the wood and I didn't just want it to be an empty space.  Then I added ICE Resin.  For the ladies I added small keys and for the guys I added a small gear.  I didn't want to add too much to the bezels because I wanted the picture and pieces of barn board to be the main focus.  I wrapped the bezels up and put them in gift bags and gave them to everyone as shown in the picture above and then I left it up to them if they wanted to make it into a key chain or put a magnet on the back.  They did a little of both.


Here is a close up of the one with the key.


Here is a close up with the gear.


My mom and aunt Gail decided they wanted to have magnets and my aunt Cory wanted to have a key chain.  I had some old jewelry that was from my grandma.  She was my grandpa's first wife and mother to my mom and her bothers and sisters and she passed away several years ago.  I used some of the jewelry pieces to create the dangles on their bezels.  Everyone really liked the bezels and thought it was pretty neat that the barn board was in there and it will always be preserved.

Thank you so much for joining me today and letting me share a little of my family with you.  :)

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Sparkling Dandylion Card

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a CAS (Clean And Simple) card with a lot of sparkle to share with you.


For my card I used a couple of the papers from the Prima Princess Collection 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  I think some of the papers in this collection are so soft and dreamy looking.  I used Dandylion, and Dragon Delight die templates from Spellbinders to create the die cuts.  Both of these die templates are new releases and they are part of the Die D-Lite Collection.  I used white cardstock for the die cuts.  Then I applied Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to the flowers and part of the dragonfly and I added Ranger Distress Glitter Clear Rock Candy.  I love how this turned out!  The Distress Glitter areas look like a very light ivory on top of the white giving the die cuts a two tone look.


Here is a close up.  I love all the sparkle!  I added a few Melissa Frances White Pearls, and Webster's Pages Sequins Mix-Party Time.  The peachy pink sequins match the paper perfectly.  I added some 3D Foam Squares to the flowers and the dragonfly to pop them up a little and add some dimension to the card.  I didn't add a sentiment to the front of the card but if you wanted to you could stamp a sentiment right on to the card front or add a tag with the sentiment if you wanted to change it up.  I think this card could be used for several different occasions.


I hope you enjoyed the card today and as always you can click on all the photos to enlarge them and all of the supplies are listed below with links.

Snowflakes Celebrate the Season Card - JustRite Papercraft July New Release Day Ten

Hello blogging friends!  Today, is the tenth day and also the last day of the July New Release for  JustRite® Papercraft.  So what did you think of all the fabulous new stamps, dies, and SVG cut files?  For today I have three more stamp sets to share with you and one SVG cut file.










Here is the card that I designed using the CL-02053 Snowflakes Cling Stamps and SVG-02053 SVG Snowflakes Digital Cut File Download for CL-02053.  To create the pretty layered snowflake I used both the exact and offset SVG cut files.    


On the pink layer I stamped with Versa Mark ink and then added white embossing powder and heat set.  For the blue snowflakes I added Glossy Accents and Distress Glitter-Rock Candy for some sparkle.  I also added the Glossy Accents and Distress Glitter-Rock Candy around the outer edge of the pink snowflakes. Then I added SS12 and SS20 Aquamarine Flat Back Crystals, and SS12 Light Rose Flat Back Crystals from ButterBeeScraps.


For the background paper I used the negative part (the throw away piece) from the SVG cut files to create a stencil.  I added some painters tape around the outer edge so I din't have to worry about getting ink where I didn't want it to go.


I used Broken China ink and a sponge to stencil the snowflakes.


Here is a close up of the background paper.  This is just another way you can use the cut files.



Just a couple of close ups of the snowflake.  To finish off the card I added some white lace, sheer pink ribbon with a bow, a pretty cabochon, and a handmade stick pin.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you were inspired and enjoyed all of the new products and projects for the July release!

This is the coordinating SVG-02051 SVG Christmas Vintage Labels Seven Digital Cut File Download for CR-02051.  I didn't use the SVG file on my project for today but I wanted to share it with you.

I stamped both of the background images using Versa Mark Ink on to white cardstock.  Then I added Ranger Super Fine Detailed Gold Embossing Powder and used a heat tool to heat set.  For the CL-02068 Holly Swirls Cling Background I used the Faber-Castel Green Tea Gelato along with a watercolor brush to watercolor the background.


To create my background I used a portion from each of the stamped backgrounds.


I used one of the sentiments from the CR-02051 Christmas Vintage Labels Seven Clear Stamps.  I used  Versa Mark InkRanger Super Fine Detailed Gold Embossing Powder, and the Faber-Castel Green Tea Gelato to color the tag.  Then I added some May Arts 1.5" Silky Crushed Ribbon Champagneand Metallic String Gold.  I tied a couple of green jingle bells to the gold string.  To finish off the card I added some Petaloo Flowers.

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Birthday Floral Card

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  I know it has been a couple of weeks since my last post for TSSRS but as I mentioned in a previous post I had some health issues and had to take a little break.  But I will be back to posting on Fridays for TSSRS.


Here is the card that I designed to share with you.  Water coloring is very trendy right now and on this card I created the stamped and water colored background paper to look like a designer paper.  


The look of water color can easily be achieved using Ranger Distress Inks.  You can blot the ink pads on to a craft mat and used a Faber-Castell Mix & Match Deluxe Water Brush to pick up the ink and add color to your paper.  If you don't have a craft mat you can use an acrylic block, a foam plate or even a piece of plastic wrap.  Here are a few little tips--work in a small area, wet the area you want to add color to first with water and then add the color doing this will help the paint to flow better, do one color so section at a time, and heat set in between colors.  For the background I randomly stamped the rose bud image from JustRite® Papercraft CR-02106 Birthday Floral Vintage Labels Eight and Nine Clear Stamps using Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  On the die cut shape I stamped the frame and sentiment from the same stamp set using Versa Mark ink.  I added Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and heat set using a heat tool.  To add the color I used Picked RaspberryMowed Lawn, and Squeezed Lemonade Ranger Distress Inks.


Here you can see a close up of the watercolor.


To create both of the die cut shapes I used JustRite Custom Dies JB-02087 Vintage Labels Eight Dies.  I layered the die cuts on top of the background paper and then I added some Venise Lace 1.75" - Gabriella White and 3/8" Satin with Knotted Edge Ribbon.  I love the look and feel of both the ribbon and the lace together.  I love the little knots in the ribbon--it has texture and detail but yet still very simple.  I also added a few Melissa Frances White Pearls and a Petaloo Botanica Pink flower.  To add dimension I used 3D Foam Squares in between some of the paper layers and I used EZ Runner® Permanent Strips-Refillable Dispenser 49' to adhere all of the other layers.


I hope you enjoyed the card today and as always you can click on all the photos to enlarge them and all of the supplies are listed below with links.
