Lasting Hearts Card Drive

LastingHeartsLogo_v1
Hello there! Today I have a few cards to share that I made for the Lasting Hearts Card Drive. This is a wonderful opportunity to put your talents to a much greater good and to extend love to those that are heartbroken over the loss of losing a precious child. You can read more about it over on Jennifer McGuire’s blog.Lasting Hearts Card DriveMy first card uses the Bouquet of Flowers stencil by Simon Says Stamp. I used my mini ink blenders and some post-it tape for masking to blend in Rosie Cheeks, Lemon Chiffon, Maliblue, Melon, Catkin and High Dive ink.
SSS-Bouquet of Flowers stencilThe sentiment is from the Prayers stamp set by Hero Arts. Simon Says Stamp is generously donating 25% of the profits from this stamp set to the “Lasting Hearts” Fundraiser and Card Drive.
SSS-Bouquet of Flowers stencilMy next card features the Leaves Stencil. This is really cool because you get both the stencil and the mask with this and that is what I used to get the positive and the negative images of the leaves by blending in Maliblue on one and Catkin on the other.
SSS-Leaves StencilThe sentiment is a mixture of the Big U Words and More Tag Words stamp sets. I added a couple of smooth gemstones by Hero Arts to the sides of the “you” and mounted the panel onto a Smoke card base.

Mama Elephant-New Family

Hello! I’m joining Mama Elephant to highlight the New Family stamps set with coordinating dies.Mama Elephant-New FamilyI created a baby shower card by stamping multiple fox & bunny images, coloring them with Copics and popping them up with foam tape. I love the soft colors and festive balloons against the stark white. Balloons just make everything better.

Neat & Tangled-Pixelated Heart

releaseweek-01Hello there! I’m back with Neat & Tangled showcasing the new Pixelated Heart die.Neat & Tangled-Pixelated HeartI used one part of the Pixelated Heart die to create a window with the cutie patootie bear from Lumberjack Love hanging out on the bottom holding a heart. I embossed the “for you” from Gifts for You in white.
Neat & Tangled-Pixelated HeartThe Pixelated Heart die creates the coolest pop-up heart on the inside of the card.
Neat & Tangled-Pixelated HeartI added the sweet bear on the inside, putting a little tab on the back of him so that he will pop up when the card opens. I embossed another sentiment from Gifts for You as well on the inside.

Mama Elephant-Oh Happy Birds

Hello there! This is my second post for today. I apologize in advance for this week’s over-posting. Just so happens that Neat & Tangled and Mama Elephant have their release highlights on the same days this week. This won’t normally happen, but I just wanted to warn you, in case you’ve thought I’ve lost my mind or something. Well, I have lost my mind, but you know what I mean:)

Mama Elephant is kicking off their January release highlights featuring the new Oh Happy Birds stamp set with coordinating dies. The images & sentiments in this set are perfect for creating a cute wedding or love themed card.

I embossed the floral image and sentiment in white and added a few pink details with my Copics. The die cuts were then popped up on some polka dotted vellum and then stitched onto an aqua striped panel.

Neat & Tangled-Lumberjack Love

releaseweek-01Hello there! Today I’m excited to be joining Neat & Tangled for release week to showcase the adorable new Lumberjack Love stamp set designed by the very talented Elena.Neat & Tangled-Lumberjack
I had so much fun making this card. The images are just too cute for words. That bear with his one leg tucked in just slays me. I blended a soft background using Lake Shores & Khaki, but other than that, the card is so very simple.
