Hello Honey Pie

Hello! Today I'm sharing another stenciling project I made from class.  I totally got my stencil on this past weekend can you tell? This card is based on Julie's card from class that used ink mists with stencils.


I don't happen to own a cool die that cuts a sentiment along an edge so I made do with what I had.  I used the hexagon stencil from Heidi Swapp along with Lemonade and Custard Mister Huey mists.   I also added some splatter drops of black ink mist and gold shine mist by using a paint brush dipped in the mists.


To create the die cut sentiment I cut my black card stock to the same width of my card, then I lined up the new Hello die from Lawn Fawn where I wanted it to be on the card, slightly to the right.  After cutting out the "hello" I used a straight edge to cut the remaining card stock along the bottom edge of the word, allowing the very ends of the sentiment to overlap so that it would fit back into the strip on the card. After cutting the strip to the right thickness I stamped the rest of my sentiment in delicata gold ink using Riley's ABCs.  I covered the "hello" with wink of stella glitter for extra shine and used stickles on the bee's wings as well. The little bee is from the new Hello Sunshine stamp set that will be available soon from Lawn Fawn as well.

Happy Stenciled Birthday

Today I'm back with some more homework from the Stenciled class at Online Card Classes.  Jennifer did a great project using a stencil with ink in rainbow colors and then flipping it and inking through it again.  This is my take on the same idea. 


I used the Simon Say Stamp diagonal stripe stencil to create the background. I inked it with distress inks in a rainbow order, then I flipped the stripes in the other direction and went back over the colors again.  This stencil created a square pattern that was 5.5 x 5.5 inches so I cut it down and will use the remaining portion of the design for another card.

I stamped the sentiment from Neat & Tangled Just For You stamp set in black Versafine ink for a super sharp image on top of the distress ink. I also used Black soot distress ink to create my black bordered card base, because I was all out of black card stock.  The stenciled panel is mounted on the card base with foam adhesive and I sprinkled around a few black satin sequins to finish it off.

I'm sharing another card over on the Neat & Tangled blog today as well, here is a little peek.

Studio Calico Sugar Rush: Taffy Add-On Projects

I'm back with some more Studio Calico projects using the new Sugar Rush card kit as well as the Taffy Add-On.  I also did some digital die cutting which is a first for me!


I love the tiny polka dot paper in the Taffy Add-On kit.  I used the heart and circle 3x4 digital cut file to cut out the polka dot paper then I punched 1 inch circles from  other various papers from both the Sugar Rush main kit and the Taffy Add-On kit to place behind some of the open circles.


I used pieces of the pink grosgrain ribbon to adhere to the back of the die cut behind the heart cut outs.  I popped the whole die cut up on foam adhesive.  I cut the heart out from one of the images in the main card kit paper pad and popped it up on foam adhesive also to create a focal point.

For my second card I used the Love You cut files to create some more die cuts in different sizes.


I layered the word bubble cut outs with different thicknesses of foam adhesive to create a look of many layers.  I also layered one of the die cut hears behind the "o" in love which it fits behind perfectly! I covered it in stickler for some sparkle.  I covered the wooden buttons with wink of stella clear glitter as well.


I finished it off with the navy twine around the bottom to anchor the whole design.  Thanks for stopping by today! Can't wait to see what everyone creates with the new Sugar Rush card kit and Taffy Add-On kit.

Studio Calico Sugar Rush: Hi! Hello

It's Reveal time at Studio Calico! Time to check out February's kits Sugar Rush!  The Sugar Rush card kit has some great papers in it including one with larger elements that I felt were perfect for cutting apart  and using more like embellishments.  Again this card started with the sentiment as my jumping off point.


I thought the two phone images worked perfectly with the sentiment. I stamped the top portion of the sentiment stamp in gold ink on the pattern paper then once I lined it up where I wanted the placement of all the pieces I stamped the bottom part in black ink.  That's the beauty of clear stamps…you can see through them to line things up! :)


The blue card base uses the pale blue card stock in the More Color Card pack for February.  I used white Mister Huey's to add some paint splatter to the card base to tie in with the white heart embellishment.  I colored the wooden speech bubble button to match the red heart paper and use gold floss from Copper Mountain on it as well.


Studio Calico Sugar Rush: Sparkle

Tonight is reveal night at Studio Calico and soon you will all be able to get your hands on the new Sugar Rush kits.  I love the sentiment stamps in the Sugar Rush card kit.  I did a lot of designs based around sentiments this time around.


This first design started with the sparkle sentiment that was just begging to be stamped in glamerous gold on the sunburst paper.  I ruffled up the wide gold ribbon behind the panel for some extra sparkle.  The wooden star button has some gold floss left over from my Copper Mountain kit and I covered it in a layer of sparkle with my wink of stella clear glitter pen.


I stamped the crown image from the set in gold ink on the kraft card base to create a pattern background and adhered the soft aqua pattern paper on an angle to finish off the background for this card.  For a little pop of color I cut down the heart pattern paper (which I adore by the way) and create a couple banners to tuck behind the sentiment panel. I totally love all the soft colors with a bit of shine, it really compliments the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today!
