Your Paper Insider - 2nd Quarterly Box

Super excited that I got my second quarterly Your Paper Insider subscription box!

Today I used some of three different papers from the box.  A lovely shiny gray/silver, a deep gray and my favorite from the box... a very cool sequin glitter sheet!

I stenciled the silver sheet using Black Soot and a cool stencil from Miss Ink Stamps.  I LOVE that over this shimmery paper, the black looks more like a deep gray... perfect really because I really wanted to use a dark gray, but didn't have it!

Then I die cut the Happy Birthday die from Lawn Fawn from the glitter paper and the deep gray and offset them to create a shadow.  I popped them up over the top of the card and then added some sequins... AND... I used a hole punch to create three little circles from the glitter paper and used them as a sequin and added a bubble of Glossy Accents over the top.  I can guarantee that no piece of this glitter paper that is big enough to cut a circle with the hole punch will go to waste!

That's it!  If you'd like to see that glitter paper in motion, head on over to Instagram and I'll have a short video posted along with the card.

Thanks so much for stopping!  Come again soon!

Miss Ink Stamps - A Mid Mod Rainbow


Welcome back!  How about some Mid Mod for your Friday?!  I'm playing with the Artsy Abstract Stencils in February and for today, a rainbow of sorts.

I started with a rainbow of Distress Oxides using the Artsy Abstracts small shapes.  I used Pixie Tape to mask off the stencil shapes I wasn't using.  Then I used the Rainbow Builder stencils and Black Soot Distress Oxide to add the rainbow and then the sun from the Rainbow Sky Stencil Set.

I added some accents with Black Glitz Glitter Gel to both the rainbow and the sun.  And finally some simple butterflies from the Say Cheese stamp set and a few sequins.  A simple sentiment from Sunshine and Rainbows was just right.

Here are some of the pics that inspired me for this one:

Cool, right?  It might not be my favorite art style, but it sure is growing on me.

Thanks so much for stopping!  I hope you enjoyed it!  And stay tuned for lots more Artsy Abstracts!

Therm O Web - Lots of Love!

I'm up on the Therm O Web Blog with three cards chocked full of Decofoil goodness!

I've used some New To Me products from the shop that have been around for a while (and some of them are on sale!) along with some Adhesive Transfers from the new release!

I've got details over there about how I made each of these cards with a few tips and tricks for foiling fun!

I made a whole pile of backgrounds and sentiments in a foiling fit and I've also used some of them on my other post for today... be sure to check that one out too!

I'm also using the Inseparable stamp set from Penguin Palace.  I won a couple sets from them a while ago and I just love this adorable set full of little critters loving each other.

Love & hugs!  Hope to see you over there!


Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #14 - Coffee & Hearts!

It's February and time for a new challenge over at the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge!  This month the theme is Christmas, Coffee and at least one Heart!  Our sponsor is LTTS Doodles and this fun Etsy shop makes the most adorable digis!  I've used the super sweet Sweet Yeti digi set for today and here's how I was inspired:

I made lots of backgrounds for today's Therm O Web post and I had some left over so I used one for this one... the adorable Dainty Hearts Toner Card Front foiled in Pink Melon!  And then I added some snow drops using the Tiny Snowfall Stencil from Miss Ink!  First I applied some Glitz Glitter Gel and after that dried a second layer (offset) with Transfer Gel Blanco.

I added the snowflake, greeting and some pretty hearts cut from foil using some old favorite dies from Paper Smooches (super miss this shop!).  

And as if that wasn't fun enough!  Today is my day up on the blog over at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers!

I took the opportunity to use the 2nd digi in the Sweet Yeti set for a second card!

This little sweetie didn't have a coffee cup but that's ok!  When you have cups in all sizes it's easy to add one.  I used a craft knife (loving my new Art Knife from Olfa) to cut around his mitten so I could slide the cup handle underneath.

I added some stitched hills to this one, a sentiment built from two stamps from Miss Ink and more of those cute Paper Smooches hearts and chunky snowflake.

This card front was foiled in the Enchanted Rose foil... I just LOVE the variation in colors that foil gives off... almost rainbow like as you move it around!

I'm playing along over at Double Trouble Challenge Blog with some stitching (on my snowy layer) and my magical Sweet Yeti.  You have until Sunday, February 5th to play along!  (Note that the Fairy and The Unicorn challenge ended January 31st.)

I hope you enjoyed it!  Don't forget to hop on over to the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge and Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blogs and say hello there!    You're going to love all the extra inspiration at CCCC ... and my mom is guesting there too so check out her super adorable card!
