[Tutorial] Strawberry Rocks Card & Five for Friday

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I was inspired by this rock painting project to make a card for today! Since I’ve been having fun playing with our Rock My World Stamp Set and Die Set lately, I immediately wanted to make strawberries with our rocks! And here is my take! How to Make Strawberries from Your Rock Stamps 1. Stamp the rocks on the card front. I’m using the reverse side of the “live, laugh, love” rock to get a solid image. 2. Stamp the leaves (from Flower Circles Stamp Set) and cut out. Cut about 1/16″ away from the stamped image will actually give it a more finished look. 3. Use a black pen to add some random dots to your “strawberries”. Wait until your ink is dry on paper to do this. The dots do not need to be perfect. 4. Use a white gel pen to add the seeds. […]

Slept Like a Rock Card + A Heads-up

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I have a quick and easy one layer card to share today! Can you tell that I just can’t put down our Rock My World Stamp Set? I made this card and yesterday’s Easter card together. You can tell that I used the same ink pads, right? I love that I can make Rock My World Stamp Set soft and pretty too! I cut a piece of post-it note to 2″x 2-3/8″ to use as a mask for my stamped background. To give it more definition, I went over the edge of the mask with a black gel pen. I love the look of using the rock as a paper weight. Fun & easy, right? A Heads-up! Leave a comment to Kim Kesti’s Bowtiful Post by Tonight for a chance to win a coupon to Waffle Flower Crafts Store!

Neon Hello Card – Dimensional Washi Tape Circles

Hello everyone! Popped in to share a card I made with Avery Elle Simply Said Hello Die. I have had these neon washi tape for a while and finally got around to use them. I’m sorry about the dark photos today.  Anyone knows how to photograph neon colors? Any tip would be greatly appreciated! I put a piece of neon pink tape on white cardstock and die cut the sentiment. Then I layered the pink tape with the yellow stripes tape and used foam adhesive to pop the sentiment on top. The washi tape circles were made by folding the yellow tape back to back and punch half of a circle out with a 1″ circle punch. I used two of these half circles to make one dimension circle. Adhered together with a tiny piece of pink tape. The circle will have a natural curve which gives it a nice dimension. That’s […]

Have a Beautiful Day Card + A Sketch Revisited

Hello everyone! Happy Chinese New Year if you celebrate it! I was very excited to find out that Stamp It! Techniques Vol. 2 is now available in both print or digital format! I was lucky to get a copy of it a few days ago and enjoyed every page. I wanted to share one of my cards that was published in this issue. The challenge was to Create a Scene! I was immediately inspired to make a polaroid frame with a landscape scene. As in real life, the subjects that are closer to us will appear bigger in scale in a photo! Think all the possibilities with the stamps we already have! Go ahead and have some mix-n-match fun! I punched a square from white cardstock; Stamped the bottom with flowers and leaves and masked them to stamp the water and mountains. I also heat embossed a cloud in the corner. A little […]
