Design It Monday ~ {Border Possibilities!}

Hidyho PRS friends! I have two cards to share with you today featuring the Little Things stamp set. What started out as one project blossomed into a bonus card!

I had a thought just as I was going to bed one night that I wanted to make a flower using the polka dot border from the Little Things set. I stamped the border several times then die cut about a dozen circles in two different sizes from the long strips. I glued the smaller of the circles to the back of a large button.

*A tip here is to cut the bottom, or white half of the circle, into a V so you can conceal it behind the button.*

My plan was to then add the larger circles as a second layer to the bloom, but I didn’t like the way this looked. Instead, I adhered a die cut vellum flower. I popped this onto a cute patterned paper frame with a snippet of a Mini Yellow Doily from the shop. I added a sentiment banner to the top of the card along with a few punched butterflies.

Not wanting those larger circles to go to waste, I created a scalloped border with them!

I’ve used the same paper and doily here but created a more modern looking card. One of the flowers from the Blossom stamp set helped to ground my design. A few speckles from the Fall Colors set were added for good measure.

Never underestimate the possibilities of your stamps. One pretty little polka dot border provided me with two cards. Now who’s mailbox should these be delivered to?

Project Thursday ~ You’re A Fantastic Friend

Hello everyone… Helen is here. For today Project Thursday, I have a fun black and white card for a fantastic friend to share with you all.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett

Stamps I use on my cards today are the new Little Things Stamp Set, Oh So Fun Stamp Set, and Blossom Stamp Set. I started with creating the black and white polkadots and tripes background.

I stamped the polkadots stripe stamp from Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad with MISTI and Creative Corners. I stamped one stripe, and then move up the cardstock 1 inch and then stamp again. I repeated the step until the whole panel stamped.

I trimmed the background panel very slightly smaller, I added one of the Mini White Doilies on it, bit off the edge and wrapped it on the edge of the panel,  and added it on an A2 White Card with dries-clear adhesive.

I stamped the flowers from Blossom Stamp Set with VersaMark Ink Pad on a piece of Vellum Paper, then sprinkle them with White Embossing Powder that I mixed it with some Holographic Embossing Powder for extra sparkle. I heat set them with craft heater. Then, I fussy cut the flowers with micro-tip scissors. I used one of them on the jar.

Then I stamped the jar and sentiment from Oh So Fun Stamp Set and also one of the sentiment from Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on a different white cardstock using MISTI. After that, I fussy cut the jar with micro-tip scissors and trimmed the sentiments into sentiment strips with paper trimmer. I added someVersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on one of the sentiment strips using Sponge Dauber.

I added the jar on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue, next I added the flower on it. Then, I added the sentiment strips on the card with dries-adhesive glue, and the other one with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

My black and white card is done 🙂 I hope you all enjoy it today. THANK YOU for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Ideas {hi there!}

Hello! It’s Kelly here with another Tuesday Ideas post! It seems like I’ve been away for a while since the Blog Hop and new release! Today my card uses the newly released Little Things stamp set paired with the Fall Colors stamp set. I thought it would be fun to combine the two for a summer look, rather than fall, and I love how it turned out!

To begin, I stamped the three different leaf images using three different green inks here and there. I tried my best to create visual balance between the colors and shapes. I also added the little “splatter” images using grey ink around the leaves to add some detail.

I also stamped the grid image and sentiment border in gray ink as well. I wanted those elements to be soft. The “hi there” sentiment is stamped in black, and is from the Fall Colors set. The cute circle that says “favorite” and the “You’re a fantastic friend” sentiment is from the new “Little Things” and those are both stamped in black.

I added a few Seaside Buttons for some extra color and detail. I cut this panel slightly, because I wanted to add the polka dot detail to the right corner. I used my MISTI stamping tool and stamped it a few times for nice saturation onto a Kraft cardbase. I love how this card turned out! I hope you will try using some seasonal stamps in an unexpected way!

Inspire Me Friday

Hello everyone!!  Did you know that the spring/summer Coffee Lover’s blog hop has been going on this week?  Well today is the last day of the hop and I have a coffee themed card to share that combines the newly released Little Things stamp set with the fun Coffee Love stamp set.

coffee cup
I pulled out some fun bright papers and did some paper piecing for my card.  I started by stamping the triangles image from Little Things on some patterned paper in a light blue ink.  I then stamped the coffee cup using a bright green ink and trimmed out the cup.  I stamped the cup wrapper and lid portions of the coffee cup with the same green ink on more patterned paper and white paper.  The pieces were then trimmed out and adhered to the coffee cup.  The little circle sentiment was stamped in a teal ink on white paper and then trimmed out.  That was adhered to the coffee cup using foam adhesive.   Bright green and yellow papers were trimmed as shown and adhered to a white cardstock panel.  A sentiment from the Little Things set was stamped in the bright green ink as shown and then the cup was adhered.   There is a sentiment in the Coffee Love set that has coffee in it so I stamped that portion on white cardstock using black ink, trimmed it out and adhered with some foam adhesive.

Have a wonderful day!
