Home is Where the Heart is

Hello everyone! Popped in to share a card that was published in Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine January 2014 issue. The card was in the Stamp It! Techniques section for Spotlight Stamping. The idea is to hight light a part of your stamp by stamping the part again, coloring it differently and popping it up with some foam adhesive. I heat embossed the map pattern on both the kraft card base and some red cardstock. I used a heart punch  to punch out the part I wanted to spotlight. Think all the punch and die shapes you can use with this technique! If you are a subscriber of the magazine, you can see all the creative takes on this technique here! Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting! SUPPLIES Studio Calico – Stamp – Roma (EH|SSS) Hero Arts – Right at Home (EH|SSS) Versamark – Emboss Ink – Clear (EH|SSS) […]

Grayson Card Drive + A Winner

Hello Everyone! I had some time this morning and made a couple cards for Grayson and his brother Aydan. You can read about the card drive Danielle started here. These are simple cards but I hope that they will bring a smile to the boys. I used the new Hero Arts Gold ink on the building silhouette in the super day card. I am a little disappointed about the gold ink. It is watery (like the rest of the shadow inks) and is more like a light kraft color with some glitter in it than a solid pigment gold ink I am used to. I will try it more later but here is a comparison shot: And while I’m here, I would like to announce the random winner of Pebbles Back to Basics Blog Hop at my stop. Congratulations Kelly!

RIC #39 – Everything Will Be O.K. Card

Hello everyone! It’s time for another Runway Inspired Challenge! This one was hard for me. I thought about using foliage stamps to recreate the print pattern or using triangles to create a stamped background. But then I found the cool Square Pattern stamp by Hero Arts in the Stamping Royalty prize box (yes, it has arrived and some giveaways are underway! Wink!) So I pulled a color combo from the inspiration photo: And made my card. I only wish the sentiment could be 10% bigger, haha! I was inspired by her shoes to cut two strips of black cardstock to put on the the card. This week we are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. The winner will receive a $15 gift card to their awesome online store. And also it is my turn to post on RIC Facebook page. Come play with us, you may be featured! :) Click on over […]
