WCMD 2014 Spiced Sunshine Stamps and Lawn Fawn Papers

Thia here to share with you a card I created for World Card Making Day 2014, using Lawn Fawn papers and Spiced Sunshine Stamps. This is a fun fold card, as it starts out as an 8 inch square but folds into a 4 inch card. I will include the instructions on how to create this card at the end of this post.
This is a picture of the opened card showing the front and back sides of the card. Let's take a look at the inside...
Here's a closer look at the individual sections...
Here's a look at the front when folded...

Pretty fun card, right?

Cut a 12x12" Lawn Fawn double printed card stock down to 8x8" for card base.
Fold in half lengthwise, then open and fold in half again horizontally. Open and fold again in half diagonally. Open and take the corners that now have triangles in them and push their folds in towards each other. Push entire card down and run over folds with a bone folder preferably.

Cut 6 squares out of selected Lawn Fawn double sided card stock at 3.5", slicing 4 of these into half diagonally to create triangles. Cut one 3.5" square out of Neenah's white card stock to emboss with brick pattern for front of card. With card closed, adhere bricks to front center of card. Open card up and adhere 4 selected triangles onto the same side as front of card into the center of their designated areas. Turn over and adhere triangles and squares into their areas. (Keeping in mind that any papers with words on them should be double checked for proper placement if you fold up the card.)

Stamp Spiced Sunshine Stamp (Dear Santa Set) stocking and color in with Copic Markers. Stamp stocking face and adhere to center front of card with double sided foam adhesive. Stamp sentiment on white card stock and cut out into banner shape on left side of sentiment. Using matching patterned paper, cut a banner out in same width as sentiment, but just a tiny bit longer. Adhere patterned paper banner to card using double sided foam adhesive. Attach sentiment to this banner with glue, offset a bit.

Stamp Spiced Sunshine Stamps Jolly Holly sentiment (Jolly Holly Set) and adhere to top left square on inside of opened card. Using Memento Dew Drop ink pads, create two leaves using Baboo Leaves, New Sprout, and Pear Tart by stamping the ink pads directly onto white paper. Stamp the two darker inks first as two leaves, then stamp lightest ink over the first two. Fussy cut. Color 3 clear Robin's Nest Dew Drops with Red Copic ink. When dry, adhere leaves and dew drops to center of top square where Jolly Holly sentiment was placed.

Using Memento ink, stamp Spiced Sunshine Stamps (Joy, Love, and Peace Set) tree sentiment in green, stamp the star on top in yellow, and the tree trunk in brown. Color the star in with Copic Markers let dry. Using a yellow Spica Glitter pen, color in the star again and let dry. Once dry, color over the glitter with a Sakura Clear Glaze pen to seal in the glitter. Fussy cut and add rhinestones. Adhere to bottom triangle of top right inside of card. Make sure to only place glue below the fold line.

Stamp Spiced Sunshine Stamps Sugar n' Spice sentiment (Gingerbread Kids Set) using Memento ink, punch out with fancy punch then trim with paper trimmer to fit upper left triangle on bottom left corner. Adhere in place. Stamp Spiced Sunshine Stamps Gingerbread Girl (Gingerbread Fun Set) on white card stock and again on patterned paper for her dress. Color girl with Copics E13, E15, E17 then stamp on face. Cut out dress portion on the patterned paper with the icing on her arms and below the icing at her legs. Color icing white using Sakura White Pen. Adhere dress to girl when white dries. Stamp hair on white card stock and fussy cut. Add rhinestone to base of pony tail and color with green Copic. Adhere to head of gingerbread girl. Stamp pocket, fussy cut and adhere to dress.

Owl Birthday Card Using Spiced Sunshine Stamps

Hello Sunshine! Here's a fun birthday card for all of you OWL lovers out there! Using the current Peachy Keen Challenge, I came up with this fun birthday card. I turned the sketch upside down on this one and moved the sentiment a bit to make room for my dew drops. 

Here's a look at the inside of the card:

And here's a picture of the finished card:

I sanded the card down for a different look. Notice how the sentiment follows the edge of the circle? I love that you can bend the stamp a bit to get a different look. 

Materials Used:
Neenah Cardstock
My Minds Eye
Spiced Sunshine Stamps
The Robins Nest Dew Drops

Joy Love Peace Christmas Tree

Happy Thursday crafty pals! Today I'd like to share a sneak peek for Spiced Sunshine Stamps next release. I decided to get a jump start on my Christmas cards this year, with this adorable sentiment tree!
I cut my card base then cut the dotted patterned paper a bit smaller than the face of the card. I inked my tree image using 3 different color greens. I stamped my tree image, stamped the trunk bottom center, and cut it to size. I stamped the star twice. Once on the top of the tree then again on patterned paper. I cut the star out on the inside of the line so it could fit inside the stamped image on the tree (use double sided foam adhesive for depth...I forgot to). I add my dew drops and a twine bow to finish off the card. 
Supplies Used:
Spiced Sunshine Stamps
DCWV Spring and Summer Stack
The Robins Nest Dew Drops
The Twinery Twine
Neenah Cardstock
Memento Ink

I'm entering this card into these challenges:

Happy Birthday Lorie!

Hi crafty friends! As most of you may or may not know, I'm a hard core Peachy Keen fan...very much addicted! I really am in need of an intervention program!  And right now a PKS gal is doing some celebrating! With some secretive work from the Peachy Queen herself (Kathy), this Birthday Blog Hop became possible! 

Having said that...This week a PKS member, I won't name names, (ahem....Lorie...shhh!) celebrated her 50th BIRTHDAY! Being the PKS fan that I am, you are probably wondering why I didn't use my PKS for Lorie's card. Well, I can explain...the answer is...I just couldn't decide what stamps to use! I sat for days trying to decide. I would take out sets, and lay em out then stare blankly at my craft table. I'd put em away and then repeat that process. For days...Then it hit me...keep it simple, use one of my own images and sentiment designs, and include all my favorite crafting embellishments on it!

Here's the front of the card:

As you may or may not be able to see...My favorite crafting items are Copics, embossing (on white cardstock), glitter (bees wings), twine, banners, and Dew Drops. I was able to get all of them onto this card! Lol!

Here's a look at the inside sentiment:
Don't know if this card made it's way to Lorie in time for her birthday, since it was really me racing against the clock trying to decide! But there ya have it! Happy 50th Birthday my PKS pal!

Images and Sentiment are from Digi Digi Doodle by Thia Gielow.

Stitched Stamp Fun

Hi crafty friends! The new Peachy Keen sets are here and I've paired it with some Spiced Sunshine Stamps to spice up my card with stitching. Since I love how stitching looks on cards, I created some stitched stamps to save time and get those perfect lines. If you'd like to check them out, visit my website at

Since I have a friend who loves Halloween whose birthday is coming up next month, I decided to create this card for her using PKSC-32 August 2014 set by Peachy Keen. I am in love with Kathy's stamps...they are cute, fun, and the polymer is the best out there hands down!

Here's my card:

OWH VCMP Christmas Card with Texture

I just found out that OWH is in the middle of their 4th of July Virtual Card Making Party! So...I haven't started at the beginning, I'm starting in the middle and I'll be jumping around. Here's my first card:

It's a trifold card with texture in the form of glaze pen on the sentiment, feet, belt, berries, and eyes. More texture with Liquid Pearls on the hat fluff. And my 3rd type of texture in the form of Dew Drops.

Image and sentiment is a digi from Digi Digi Doodle (an Etsy shop with a few cute digis for Christmas).

Papers are Neenah card stock and Lawn Fawn.

The faux stitching is a stamp from Spiced Sunshine Stamps. (

I colored the image in with Copic Markers, and realized I need to pick up some refills for some of my colors (like the blues for my sky) as I ran out in the middle of this image. I can tell...can you?

Oh, there's one thing I LOVE about this card...

It stands up to display the image in a cute way. 

Thanks for stopping by! Happy card making!

Cuttlebug Folder Art Deco

Yesterday I decided to try something new when using my Cuttlebug Mickey Mouse folder. And I love love LOVE how it turned out...
With my Momento Ink Pads (Regular Black Pad and Teardrop Red, and Yellow pads), I colored the image. I placed the embossed image onto the black ink pad and rubbed the back of my image with my finger. Then I moved the paper a bit and repeated. I continued this until I was happy with the black color/outline. Let it dry then used my red ink pad to outline the white cardstock (which I used a Nestabilities die for the pretty shape). I then dabbed the ink with the tip of the teardrop right onto the image for his shorts and tongue. I did the same for his yellow shoes. I placed him on different colors of cardstock using double sided foam adhesive, creating layers for the Shadowbox. It came out really cute. And is perfect for adding trinkets to.

Which can have you crafting cards like this one:

My Hippity Hoppity Project:

I created a simple Easter Candy Purse using paper punches and a paper cutter. The Digi Image on the back is Chick In Egg (by Blue Moon Creation Crafting Station). I colored it with my Copics and then fussy cut it. It's an easy image to fussy cut. Used another paper punch for the flower too. Used a button and a Robins Nest Dew Drop for the fake snap. Used some bakers twine to create a handle by braiding 3 pieces together. Used a hole punch to create the spot for the handle to tie on. These are also fun to make on a much smaller scale for the miniature candies. Use them as thank you's or advertisement. Another fun thing is the kids can even make these. Great for Valentine's Day treats too! (Check out the BMCCS Inky Moonbeams Stamp Club for more fun crafting ideas.)

Button Time!

A new digi and stamp set is in the works because of this button challenge that just started on our Get Inky! Challenge blog. It's hard for me to decide on the size of the set, I love big sets but I think folks like smaller sets. Something about the cuteness of small sets? Anyhow...

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by! Now go get your craft on!

Hoppy Spring Release!

Hey there my Moonbeams! Are you ready for some awesome news? The Get Inky! Hoppy Spring Stamp Sets have arrived! Look at this cute card I created using 2 Get Inky! Sets, a Peachy Keen Stamp, and my DCWV cardstock...
I combined two challenges together to come up with this card. The Peachy Keen Photo Inspiration Challenge, and the challenge at Hiding In My Craft Room to use x3 patterned papers. 

The inspiration I found in the PK photo was the patterns and colors of the tapes. Lots of lines and dots. I used the flower from this months kit as the center of my flower.

The inspiration from the challenge at Hiding in my craft room was the idea of 3 patterned papers and their mention of their sponsor, DCWV.

The face, sentiment, and stitching are all stamps designed by me for the Get Inky! Stamp line (which is now manufactured by a stamp company with AWESOME quality!). They are a peach tinted photopolymer...need I say more? Truly the best quality stamp (in my opinion).

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Smiling Flowers!

As I was trying to get my almost 3 year old daughter ready for bed, she decided she needed to work on a card with me. It had to be a flower with lady bugs. Oh, perfect, I have just the thing in my peachy keen cottage cuts die cut stash! And, my new Get Inky! stamp set with stitched circles works with it perfectly! And since the new PK Stamps of the month arrived, I used some sentiments from it to create this card (with my daughters help, of course)! Oh and we used the PK Challenge Sketch too.

I colored the flower with my Copic Markers, and the ladybugs with my Glaze pens. Added a fabric flower for dimension along with double sided foam adhesive. It came together nicely...I think. Seemed easy too. And I love how the stitching really adds to it. 
If you are interested in getting your own set of stitched circles, the name of the set is BMC-0009 Circle of Love and it will soon be listed in our shop. I am so excited about these stamps because my dream for my manufacturer came stamps have that peachy tint to them! Can you believe it?!? Have I mentioned I love Peachy Keen Stamps? They really are the best stamps out there! And now I can get my stamp designs made with that quality us Peachy Fans love! (The hard part is switching all my existing sets over! But it is soooo worth it!)

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Ironically, I finished it the same day I found out that their headquarters is located in my hometown...yup, I'm in trouble! Here's my finished card:
