Minute Mondays: Little Buddy Birthday

I love cute stamps, so it was no wonder that I was immediately drawn to the "Little Buddy Birthday" stamp set. I also have fallen in love with the note cards and envelopes sets and this year they are offered in crumb cake. Well, I just had to find a way to combine the two and wouldn't you know it, Blendabilities work marvelously on Crumb Cake card stock. I used the lightest shades of Coastal Cabana and Old Olive for the dinosaur, the medium shade of Crumb Cake on the Cake and the darkest shade of Daffodil Delight for the flames. If you are using Blendabilities on card stock you will want to use an extra layer of card stock for your top layer, because the colors will bleed through to the back. If you don't want to purchase separate crumb cake card stock for this purpose, just cut a note card in half and use it as your top layer. All the supplies you'll need to make this card are available for purchase below.

Last week I started sharing with you the sketches that I use for my note cards. These sketches can easily be filled in with different colors and images. Why don't you give it a try? A Note Card front measures 3-1/2" x 5". The strips of card stock that I used measure 1/2" x 3-1/2" each. The black oval is where your image should go. Happy Stamping!!

Friday Finds, Zinnia Inspriation, Take Two

I snapped a photo of this zinnia earlier this week. I thought it would be the perfect inspiration for Friday Finds. I had two ideas of which flower stamp to use to represent the zinnia: Flower Patch and Blended Bloom. The problem was I couldn't decide which one to use. In the end I decided to make two cards which both have a very different look to them.

I colored the Blended Bloom Flower with Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities. I also colored some Rhinestone Jewels with the darkest Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities to give the Zinnia extra sparkle. After I cut the flower out, I edged it with the lightest Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities to remove any white edges. If you haven't already tried Blendabilities, you will just love coloring with them. All the supplies I used to make this card are available for purchase below. Happy Stamping!

Friday Finds: Zinnia Inspiration, Take One

I snapped a photo of this zinnia earlier this week. I thought it would be the perfect inspiration for Friday Finds. I had two ideas of which flower stamp to use to represent the zinnia: Flower Patch and Blended Bloom. The problem was I couldn't decide which one to use. In the end I decided to make two cards which both have a very different look to them.

I created the fence posts out of 5/8" strips of Whisper White Card Stock. I use the banner punch to make the angled tops of the posts and then sponged them with crumb cake ink and embossed them with the woodgrain embossing folder to give them depth. All the supplies you'll need to make this card can be purchased below. Happy Stamping!
