I am super excited to post my first post as Artist in Resident for Imagine Crafts today. The challenge this month is to use a new Kaleida-color ink pad, the matching Memento Ink  and a Fireworks! Ink spray. That was not an easy challenge for me. I am so not a multi-colored kind of girl. But I made it work. :) I used the new Tomato Vine Kaleidacolor ink pad. The matching Memento Ink colors are Rich Cocoa, Bamboo Leaves, Morocco, Love Letter and Peanut Brittle Memento Ink.

Today is my turn to share on the Spellbinders blog and showcase new dies. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. LOL  I LOVE all the new dies from this release. I hope you have time to check out the card, created with a JustRite Stampers sentiment, Want2Scrap rhinestones and Spellbinders new Radiant Rectangles and Stately Circle dies.

I had a post on the Spellbinders blog yesterday featuring a Happy New Year’s card. I hope you had time to check it out and if not, go and hop on over there and tell me what you think. I am in love with Glimmer paper and stars recently.

P.S.: Today’s new tutorial on Splitcoaststampers is written by Sabrina Friel for a Flip Down Stack card. I hope you have time to check that out as well.

I have a new video to share with you on the Spellbinders Paper Arts blog today.  I love the reindeer image from Frosty Forms Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities® and used it along with a Label Twenty-Eight Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® die to create my tag.

I hope you have time to check out the entire tag and video, especially about the video. I bought a new tripod (since my plastic one was a little fragile for the new arm) and Tripod extender arm to create videos that are filmed directly above my hands. I love how much better it looks. Let me know what you think.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful weekend!

I created this card for a CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers. I had seen one of Debby Hughes cards (I am a big fan) and saw a layout I just had to case! 

I started by cutting one edge of a 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with MFT’s Notebook Edge Die-namics die. A piece of My Mind’s Eye Six by Six Gnome Sweet Gnome paper was adhered behind it to form a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card front. A button was tied on with hemp cord on the upper corner before the layer was adhered to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half.

The bottom corners were rounded and a leaf from JustRite Stampers Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves was stamped on the lower right corner with Peanut Brittle Memento Ink.  A sentiment and postage stamp image were stamped over it with with Jet Black Archival ink. Three black rhinestones on the top right finish off the card.

This card works perfectly for the newest Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is called Autumn Leaves. I hope you have time to participate. You could win a $50 shopping spree at Simon Says Stamp online store. I LOVE Simon Says Stamp.

 

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful day!

I created this card for a Free For all Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. We were to create a card with fall leaves. I had seen so many negative die cuts on Pinterest and love the look. I decided to create a card like that for this challenge.

A piece of 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut and embossed with one of the Spellbinders Foliage dies. A piece of BBP All Hallow’s Eve patterned paper was adhered behind it before the layers were stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Kraft cardstock.

A sentiment from JustRite Stamper’s Antique Autumn Tags One was stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink to the lower left of the layers. A button was tied on with Linen Thread before the layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock, folded in half. Three black Rhinestones were adhered to the top right to finish off the card.

I have a quick video tutorial on the Spellbinders blog, showing how to create this little treat box. I hope you have time to check it out.  The sentiment is from a JustRite Stampers set that will be released in the middle of September. It’s called Grand Sentiments and it’s gorgeous!

Have a great weekend!
