Birthday Tulip

Hi Stamping Friends. Today I am Sharing a clean and simple birthday card. It features the Get Well Tulip and Birthday Blessings from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

I stamped the sentiment in black ink first, created a mask and then stamped the Tulip over top. The tulip is colored with these copics.

This Social distancing and staying home has me in my stamp room a lot more! Remember the Crafty Friends Blog hop from a few weeks ago? Here are 5 more projects I made with Pink Fresh Studio goodies!

This is the Inlaid Die Cut technique. I like to call it the die cutting puzzle! This is the Fancy Floral 2 Die.

The sentiment is from the Just Because Word Mix from Simon Says Stamp.

Pink and black is also ways one of my favorites!

This is the Classic Words Die (also Pink Fresh)

Flora Background

This might be my new favorite stamp from Simon Says Stamp.

I purchased this Flora Background stamp a few months ago and inked up this month for the coloring challenge over on Instagram.

It’s absolutely beautiful and easy to use. The Flora stamp is 6 x 6. I stamped a full image in Black ink and trimmed it down for 2 cards. The 1st piece for a pretty big card front as you see here.

I saved the small strip I cut off and set it aside for a few days. This is what I ended up making.

Pretty sure these are all Easter colored pastels! I can’t wait to heat emboss this. So many fun ideas for this Flora Stamp!

Crafty Friends Blog Hop featuring Pink Fresh Studio

Hello stamping friends! Today the Crafty Friends are hopping with Pink Fresh Studio.

Before we talked about this blog hop I had zero Pink Fresh Studio in my stash. I never complain about shopping, especially for stamps! So shopping I went. I got a few items but today I am sharing the Fancy Floral 2 die.

Take a closer look! Yup! I pieced together all those little tiny, itty bitty pieces like a puzzle to make this beauty. We are on total lockdown here in in PA so it was actually fun and a great way to pass the time.

I did streamline the process. Die cut, make piles and them put together a whole pile of cards. I ended up with 8 finished cards (5 shared here), plus extra die cuts for use another time. I started with a 2 whites, a black (not pictured) and then 1 each of the colors shown below, plus a blue. Save every little piece!!!

After I picked out the multi colored pieces for the 1st card, then it was make up fun color combos! Black and Yellow! So striking

Soft and Subtle blue, pink and purple:

Classic white on white with a stamped Fancy Florals image:

The stamp set Fancy Florals is also Pink Fresh Studio. The sentiments are varied from my stash.

Now its time to hop with all my Crafty Friends!

Mixed Fruit

Today card is a mixed fruit theme. I/m having fun with the Fruit Stamps from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

I stamped all the fruit with black ink, cut them out with my scan-n-cut and then colored them with copics. Each die cut is randomly adhered to a single white panel and trimmed around the edges.

Each piece of fruit is colored with random copcis and the sentiment is heat embossed with White embossing powder.

Lots of fun crafting going on in my corona virus staycation. Follow me on instagram to see all my fun creations!

Fun Stampers Journey March Stamp of the Month

It’s a fabulous Sentiment set this month: Sentiment Stacks to be exact!

Todays design is specifically for when you need a fast card with minimal work! You can easily whip up a bunch of these, with varying sentiments, in one sitting.

Just a touch of coloring to make the letters pop. The paper is from the March 2020 Feeling Hoppy card kit.

Card Kit paper, Sparkle tape and a touch of stamping. FSJ Journey Rectangles die set has a piercing template to match each rectangle. I used the piercing die only to create the frame around each sentiment.

This set is packed full of sentiments that can be used together to create “stacked greetings” or by themselves.
