Birthday Card By DT Cheryl ~ Celebrate Clear Stamps

I've been a bit off in my crafting, lol. Wanna know why? My daughter had a new baby and she is now back to work...that means I'm back to work as well! Taking care of this precious baby. Cuts in on my crafting time, lol.

So anyway, I have a new card post for you today. I'm using stamps from the latest release by FBStamps. So many cute images! Make sure you go look after reading this post.

I took a set of Sizzix card dies I have and then cut a couple circles to fit. Then I stamped the largest gift stamp onto the patterned paper...two different prints. I hand cut the entire image from one and just the ribbon from the other. Then glued the ribbon on to the other piece. Foam mounted that to the green circle.


I then took the sentiment "Happy Birthday" and stamped it onto the other green circle. I took a couple of the stars and stamped those as well. For the strip down the center of the card, I measured and cut patterned paper to fit and cut banner ends. Glued those down to break up all that white space.


I went through my stash of enamel dots and gem stones and added a few scattered around. I also took a bit of twine and wrapped a bit around the front section and tied a small bow. Finished it off nicely.

So, there you have it. Quite easy really, by using the card die. Makes you look like a rock star, lol. There is ample space for writing your note on the back flap of the card. All links will be provided for the items used.


Thanks for stopping by and checking out some new products. Head over to FBStamps and see all her new release as well as past.

Merry Christmas Card

Hello Again Crafty Friends!!
Hope everyone is having a HOLLY JOLLY Christmas!!Are you in need of some last minute holiday mojo?? Well, I have a little Christmas inspiration for ya!!


I made this card using FB Stamps' Let it Snow stamps set!!

I love how elegant the Merry Christmas sentiment is in this set!! I love it so much I made it the focal point for my card!!

I stamped this image with an VersaFine Onyx Black ink and colored in the image with my Zig Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush Markers.


Then die cut the image with an oval die and layered it onto ornate oval die to frame it.

Adhered my card layers together using my Xyron Mega Runner.

The scroll borders were aso die cuts. I cut out 2 pieces then I attached them together using a glue pen. Then, I attached the joined piece onto the card with clear liquid adhesive.

I added Petaloo flowers & holly leaves. I also added berries I purchased from Dollar Tree. I used a thick clear adhesive to attach the bigger embellishments to the card. You could also use hot glue for this.

Here is a close-up of my finished card...

Hope you all enjoyed today's holiday inspiration!!

Happy Crafting, Friends!!

Merry Christmas FBStamps...


Trying to get back into doing some crafting. It's been awhile as I'm now back to caring for a new grand baby! She's a honey but I deff don't get as much play time in. 

FBStamps latest release has some super cute stamp sets! And this stamp is one of my favorites!!!


I chose some patterned paper from my stash and did simple white heat embossing of the sentiment. It is so pretty and so ornate! Fleurette did an amazing job drawing this one out! Very pretty as is, but you could certainly do it on regular cardstock and do some coloring. Even watercolor would be nice.

I used some rectangle dies for the sentiment and the card base is from Sizzix. I used foam adhesive to mount the sentiment panel. The gray colored paper is actually glitter paper and so very pretty! Could not get the sparkle. :(


It's a bit hard to see, but I added some crystal clear sequins. They kind of pick up the color they are adhered to. This paper is several years old and it's still available. It's probably one of my all time favorites. I prefer non traditional colors for Christmas and this is on the rustic side. So pretty!





This image in no way does it justice! You really need to see it in real life. 

Ok, that's it. I'll provide links for products used. Check it out!

Midnight Moon Sky, Shaker Card ~ Clear Stamps

Hi Cheryl here on the blog today, playing around with the new release from FBstamps. Some super cute images in this release and you'll deff want to check them out!

Here's a shaker card I made using the new moon image.


I had wanted to try the night sky background for a long time now. Just never did it. Well, I did for this one, and I must say, it was fun and quite easy. Can't really go wrong. Next time I'll not be as afraid of adding black. This could have gone a bit darker. But I'm happy with my first attempt. 
I splattered white paint over all to create a starry sky.

#clearstamps #moonstamp #fbstamps #stamping #shakercard
I die cut the window opening and attached acetate on the back side and used foam tape to add the dimension needed. 

I chose a mixture of sequins and seed beads for the shaker bits and then attached the back panel on top. I stamped my sentiment and added a few sequins for some sparkle. 

Here's my shopping list.


Happy Crafting!

Let It Snow Shaker Card ~ Using Clear Stamps

        Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow - Cards


Bet that song is stuck in your head now... hehe!
Ilda here today, sharing a  fun winter card I made using one of Fleurette Bloom's latest Stamp Set Let It Snow.

For this first card, the stamping was super simple. I used VersaMark ink to randomly stamp the background of my shaker card and heat embossed it using some fine white embossing powder. Then used scribbled some Zig Clean Color inks on clear acetate and smooshed it on the the watercolor paper. Once it was all dry I created this beautiful shaker card with it!

More Gerbera Daisies! Using FBstamps Clear Stamps


Happy Thursday, Crafty Friends... It's fall and can you believe Thanksgiving is just in one week?!

Thanksgiving is the time of year to be thankful for all they have. For me, I am very thankful for family and friends! I appreciate each and everyone one of them. And though I try to show them I care everyday, sometimes life just get's in the way. I guess that's what I get for "adulting"... mommy & wifey duties, house chores, design team obligations... they all pile up! 

I'm making an active effort to let my loved ones know I appreciate & love them. 

Today is my first Guest DT post for FB stamps and I made this fall themed I love you card.

Supplies Used

Gerbera Daisy (FB Stamps)
Chipboard
Whimsy Embossing Folder (Lifestyle Crafts)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
VersaFine Onyx Black (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
Clean Color Real Brush Markers (Zig/ Kuretake)
Wink of Stella (Zig/ Kuretake)
Mixed Media Paper (Strathmore)
Whipped Spackle (Faber-Castell)
3D Dots (EK Success)
PITT Artist Pen XS (Faber-Castell)
Chalklets(EK Success)
White Gel Pen (Sakura)
Glitter Enamel Dots
Hemp Twine 
Button
Scissors


I started by stamping my images in black ink onto mixed media paper. then, I colored the flowers with my Zig Markers in Yellow, Mustard, Beige,Dark Oatmeal, &  Brown and went over the centers with a clear glitter pen. I also colored the leaves in Mild Green, Olive green, & Deep Green. 

I fussy cut the flowers all the images out but if you are not great at fussy cutting or just want to save time FB Stamps have the cut files for all their stamps and the coordinating digi dies are FREE!!

I stamped doubles of the bigger blooms and cut off the outer row of petals. then layered it onto the bigger bloom with foam dots.


I wanted my flowers to be an arrangement and not just floating on the card... so, I used Eileen Hull's Tea Cup Die for the cup and the tag. I cut them from Chipboard then adhered my patterned paper onto them with my Creative Station Lite.

I shaded the edges with  abit of chalk in colors that were at least 2 shades darker than the paper.

 The little "I love You" stamp comes included with the Gerbera Daisies set.

In the picture above it looked cute it felt it was missing something...


So, I added some texture to the background with a bit of modeling paste and a stencil.
And cut out a band for my teacup and embossed it and added enamel glitter dots.

I traced around the cup and tags with an extra fine black pen and then added highlights with a white gel pen. I also went over the embossed area with the same black pan as well. 

Then finally, I finished it off with a button topped multi-looped twine bow.

Here is a close up of all the dimension in this card...


I am enjoying this stamp set very much and I'm looking forward to making more with it!!

I hope you all enjoyed today's card!!

Until next time...

HAPPY CRAFTING!!

Another look at the new release ~ Clear Stamps

Ok....so, I think this is the cutest pumpkin ever!!! 
I decided to pull out some cute patterned papers I had for fall time and I stamped the pumpkin on one of the orange papers. Then I grabbed a few Copic markers and added some shading. I used white gel pen on the eyes and then a coating of Glossy Accents. 

I pulled out some circle dies and made a layering to use on the center of the card. I used some foam tape for added dimension. 

I also cut a little tag and stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment. I tied a bit of twine and glued it on the stem. The patterned paper for the background was also cut using a square die. It is cut to 4x4 and adhered to a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 size card base.


I found some enamel dots in a real soft gray that looked good with the patterned paper, so I put one in each corner. I don't often make this size card and don't know why....cause I like it for something different and it will still go in a standard A2 envelope. 

Anyway, so there you have it. A super cute fall card that uses all patterned papers. Quick and easy yet super cute! 
Head on over and check out the new release! Some really fun stamp sets are available now. :)


Get your craft and have fun with some new products!
