Hello stampers, Dyane here! It’s challenge time!!!^_^ Yup! you’re reading it right! We are 10 minute craft dash sponsor this month! I really don’t know how I’m going to create something within 10 minutes. But hey! Let’s just have fun and start working!^_^
Using the palette above. Hmmm… sweet colors! Just perfect for our new release “Little One” stamp set. Gotta’ start gathering my materials!^_^ Do you think I can make something within 10 minutes? Ha! we’ll see!^_^
Weee!!! I did it!^_^
Time: 8 minutes and 56 seconds
Now on to the process on how I made this:
Grab all of the materials that you would possibly need.
Start with a kraft card base.
Punch your patterned papers into 1″ size circle.
Time to stamp! Using the Sweet Plum ink by Memento, start stamping the “Welcome little one” sentiment onto a light brown patterned paper. Cut it around, add some dimensionals, and place it at the center right of your card.
Add 3 wooden button hearts on the center left side of your card.
Using the same ink for a softer look, stamp the border at the top and bottom part to add some fun elements.
Round the corners.
Make sure to visit our Design Team’s blog, they’re also taking the challenge:
It’s Kim here to share with you a Tuesday Ideas creation featuring the newest stamp to arrive at the Precious Remembrance shop. Little One is such a darling stamp set full of adorable sentiments and images for baby.
To me, a newborn baby girl has the prettiest color palette in her wardrobe. Soft pastels, pretty pinks, buttery yellows. Those colors just make me happy. For my project today, I’ve created a gift set for baby using the same soft color palette. How could I resist?
For my card, I used Little One to stamp a row of pink stars onto pale pink cardstock. Then I stamped borders in turquoise onto coordinating cardstock. The bear? Yes, she is paper pieced. I started by stamping her in pink patterned paper. Next, I stamped her belly onto a floral pattern paper, cut it out, then adhered it directly over the pink paper. I repeated this process for her bow tie and mouth.
I just love paper piecing! It’s such a great way to really customize your stamping to coordinate your projects (especially if you don’t have a large marker selection in your stash, like me).
To accompany my card is a small glassine bag that’s the perfect size for a tiny gift. Small socks, a onesie, how about some cotton balls, or baby powder. Just dress up the packaging with a paper doily and ribbon, add a sentiment from Little One and complete it with a mini wooden clothespin.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s creation and have fun adding a little paper piecing onto your projects!
(The “I♥Hugs” is attached to the bear. After adding the ink, feel free to wipe it off with an alcohol-free baby wipes to get just the bear image: (oh yes! I have to say alcohol-free because like a baby, photopolymer stamps have an allergy reactions to alcohol based cleaner, I’m sure you know it! Just sayin’ heehee ^_^). And if you want to experiment and play more, the “big star”, “a star is born”,”bundle of joy” image/sentiments are meant to fit inside the bear’s tummy, cutie!♥)
(Stamp the bear twice, cut out the “I ♥ Hugs” separately to make it pop out!^_^)
(International Shipping really varies every destination. Unfortunately, for the first time Elena’s stamp set didn’t arrive within 2 weeks, she’s in Canada. I guess like what they say 2-4weeks should be the time frame for international mail. Hopefully it will be there next week so we can see her awesome projects for us next Saturday.^_^)
What do you guys think about the projects? Swoon!!!^_^ Oh so darling.♥
We can’t wait for you guys to create something from this set! There’s more projects to come, make sure to subscribe to get the latest updates from us.

Let’s all welcome Designer Nattarida Smith!

My name is Nattarida Smith aka tinyNatt . I’m originally from Bangkok, Thailand and have been living here in Colorado for the past 4 years.I fall in love with paper crafts in May 2011 and have never look back. I couldn’t imagine my life without scrapbooking. My scrapbooking style is bold, feminine, simple. When I’m not scrapbooking you can find me with an iPad in my hand searching for inspiration. I love country music and any song written by Snoop Dog.
Welcome back everyone! What to say about today’s creation??? Just a mix of all things sweet, I guess…favorite colors, petite blossoms, little hearts, a tiny dotted border, and simple sentiments sending out a happy greeting…
The little border and stamped sentiment, you’ll find in the Mom and Dad set, and the mix of hearts in the Positive Thoughts set. The papers and Chipboard…from Simple Stories. Nothing tricky here…
…Just cheery colors and images that make me smile! Hope they do the same for you! So glad you could stop in today!!
Hello everyone! Dyane here for today’s Create It Wednesday. First of all, I would like to say thank you to Designer Andrea for giving us sooo much inspiration since Day 1. We will surely miss her weekly blog here with us, but for sure we can visit her creative blog anytime.
A new designer will be joining us next week, and I’m super excited for you to meet her. Can’t wait!^_^ Now, on to my project….
You know how much I love my kraft paper for my card base, but today I won’t be using it! Surprise surprise!^_^
This paper is a little bit glossy and has some horizontal patterns on it, as you can see, totally darling. I’m trying to achieve a softer look, just perfect for spring!^_^
Mother’s day is on May 12,2013. Any gift ideas that you can share? How about start it by making some handmade goodies, that would be really special!♥
I created a quick and easy video tutorial for you to enjoy, a simple one layer card.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!♥ Hugs!!!^_^
Hello and a happy Tuesday to you! It’s Kim here to share with you a Tuesday Ideas creation. And today’s project is all about layers.
I just love adding layers to my cards. In fact, sometimes it’s difficult for me to stop adding layers. Although I understand that this style can be intimidating to some, I will share with you my method for piling on the layers without going overboard.
With spring in the air, our family has started going on bike rides again. It feels so good to be outside when the weather has started to warm up. With that idea in mind, I found inspiration for my card today.
I started with a three-part color theme in blue, red, and yellow. For me, choosing my color theme first helps me to stay focused when gathering coordinating ribbons, trims, and buttons. With color in mind, I can quickly scan my craft room for matching embellishments and avoid any supplies that are not in my color theme.
After putting all my layers together, I completed my card by adding the “enjoy” sentiment from the Calendar Stamp set, “fun times” from the Friend Stamp set, and the yellow polka-dot heart from the Love Stamp set. Each perfect for a spring time card!
So…even though there are many layers on my card, it all came together rather quickly because I had a color theme in mind. I hope you’ll try this method out next time you’re feeling a bit crafty.
Did you ever notice the texture that spring brings with it? The once dormant grass becomes lush and soft underfoot, bare tree branches evolve into wispy limbs full of delicate new leaves, bumble bees buzz through the air, their legs fuzzy with pollen, from one spring bloom to the next. The list goes on and on as the earth awakens to the warmth of the season. I wanted to put those spring textures to good use in my final card featuring the Mom & Dad stamp set!
I’ve combined sunny yellow and warm peach tones on a light and airy card. The design is anchored with a delicate paper doily, adorned with soft fuzzy elements and topped with sunny accents. A breath of fresh spring air, don’tcha think! Thanks for visiting today!
