Happy Go Lucky Flowers Card!!!

Hi all.......well I'm sooo happy the snow has finally gone!!! I will take all the rain we've been having over snow anytime, but the warm sunny days are definitely the best!!! :) So we have had so many new products come in over the last few months, but I just love the bright and fun colours of the new My Mind's Eye Happy Go Lucky papers and the cute twine that goes with it, so here's what I did with the papers and twine........I hope you all like it!!!

This is the card that I made and I even pulled out my Copics to colour it....................

Products Used
Stamps: Kaiser Craft- Occasions Mini Clear Stamp & Inkadinkado- Garden Life Cling

So this is pretty simple to put together.......I used the fuchsia cst for my card and layered it with the teal cst and then the patterned paper. I punched out the garden trellis and adhered that. Then I stamped the garden life stamp and coloured it in with my Copics, trimmed around it, then matted it with the teal cst. Then I cut a strip of the patterned paper and matted it with the teal cst and topped it off with the grommet die cut and the sentiment. For my finishing touches.....I added the twine and some liquid pearls. I just love all of the colours that the twine comes in.....and of course I just had to add a few to my collection :)  Well that's all for this until next time.....

Featured Product Post Starring........Cupcakes Galore!!! and a Chance to Win the Featured Product!!!

Hi all.............well it's that time again for the Featured Product Post....and a chance to win a set of clear Inkadinkado stamps, scroll down to the bottom of my post for all the deets..........So, I did something totally different for me and I didn't use any Tim Holtz products...........are you surprised??? Well, I hope you all enjoy my card and don't forget that Sara is also doing her post on the Featured Product as well.........this should be interesting, since we both picked the same stamp set :) here's the set...............

and here's what I came up with.........................

Products Used
Cardstock: Pink, Green, X-Press It Blending Cardstock & Jillibean Soup 6"x6" Pad- Blossom Soup
Inks: Momento- Tuxedo Black, Bamboo Leaves, Angel Pink & New Sprout

So a little bit on how I made this card, I stamped all the cupcakes from the Inkadinkado Birthday Cupcake set with my Tuxedo Black and coloured them in with my copics, then I fussy cut them out. I also hand drew 3 cherries with my black multiliner and then coloured them in with my copics and fussy cut them out and added them to the 3 large cupcakes. I stamped the Life of the Party stamp in Momento Bamboo Leaves ink and adhered it to the top of the green cst and the blossom soup patterned paper to the bottom. Then I added the ribbbon and a bow.

For the cupcakes.....2 of the larger ones I used the Tattered Angels Glam and for the other one I used the stickles. Then for the 3 smaller ones I used my Stardust pen, I added the Glossy Accents to all of the cherries. For the sentiment I used Momento Tuxedo Black. The Momento Angel Pink and New Sprout I used with one of little stamps from the Inkadinkado Birthday Cupcakes set to create a subtle background for the sentiment. That's pretty much it, other than putting it together.

Well, I bet you are all wondering how do I win the Featured all you have to do is head on over to the Scrapbooker's Paradise Blog and leave a comment on the Featured Product Post and some lucky person will win a set from Inkadinkado.

Masculine Notebook

Hi all, well it's time for another post.........and guess what this time I didn't do a card, can you believe it!!!  :) So I really wanted to play with some of my Tim Holtz stuff and thought that I could do a really cool gift for my hubby at the same time! So here's what I came up with....................

This is the front cover of the notebook and here's the divider inside.........................

Products Used
Cardstock: Kraft, Chipboard, Tim Holtz Craft Resist 12"x12" Paper Pad, Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine Paper & Notebook Paper
Stamps:Tim Holtz Cling Set- Air Travel & Misc, Notes saying
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks- Faded Jeans, Forest Moss, Vintage Photo & Walnut Stain, Tim Holtz Distress Stains- Faded Jeans, Forest Moss, Vintage Photo & Walnut Stain & Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink

I really love the Tim Holtz products, can't you tell??? :) So this is pretty easy to do, I used the Kraft Resist on the front with the Distress Stains and added the Kraft Glassine on the side, then I added the embossed old vehicle, which I coloured with the Distress Ink and then to adhere everything down I used the new Ranger Glue N Seal in the Matte finish. I did the same for the back, I just didn't add the embossed vehicle. I also used the Glue N Seal to coat the front and back of the notebook to make it more durable. This stuff is amazing.......I can see using it alot!!! I added the notes saying and the ornate plate. I stamped the divider, which is covered with the kraft cst, with the air travel set using the distress inks. Then cut the notepaper and used my Cinch to bind it all together then added the corners. I love how it turned out, it would make an awesome Father's Day gift!!! So I hope you all enjoyed my masculine project........until next time.............

Chanteuse Tri-Shutter Card

Hi all......well I sure have been enjoying our nice weather almost feels like spring here, finally :) hopefully we don't get any more of the white stuff!!! So, I really wanted to play with the new line of Chateuse papers from Kaiser Craft and this is what I came up with...........

Products Used:
Cardstock: Brown, Rose, Pink, Kaiser Craft 6"x6" Chanteuse Paper Pad, Kaiser Craft Chanteuse 12"x12" Paper-Staccato, Marcato & Vivo
Stamps: Prima Clear Stamp-Regal Madeline & Kaiser Craft Clear Stamps-Occasions

This is a pretty basic tri-shutter card, all the patterned papers are layered over top of the brown cardstock. Aren't these papers gorgeous!!! I love the pinks, browns and greens together. So, then I stamped the key with the brown StazOn ink on the 4 smallest pieces. Stamped the sentiment on the pink cardstock and layered it with the brown cardstock and added some pink rhinestones. I did use the smooch top coat on the brown flower in the middle and the clear spica on some of the other flowers.........of course this doesn't show up well in the pic :)......and that's pretty much it for this card. The only thing that takes the longest is cutting and gluing all the pieces :).....and making sure that you have the right sizes for all of the panels. Well I hope you all enjoyed my until next time.....................Have a great week!!!
