Memory Planner post, featuring Sweet Stamp Shop!

Hey guys!  I’m here with a Memory Planner post today!  My Ruby turned ONE recently, and I wanted to document her 12 month milestones in my planner.  She had a donut party, and some of Sweet Stamp Shop’s products are perfect for this planner spread!  I am using the Sweet Stamp Shop Baby Plans stamp set and my Happy Planner.

First, I stamped out a bunch of images from the stamp set that I thought I might use, colored them using my Copic markers, and then fussy cut them.  (How perfect is that banner for Ruby’s name?!)

Here is my planner, all decorated:

I used photos from her invitation photo session, and I also included a copy of her invitation.  Once I layed out where I wanted to place everything, I decided to do some masked stamping on her party day, Saturday the 21st.  I took some post-it notes, and masked off the other areas of the planer using the lines of the planner as my guide, and leaving the spot I want to stamp open.  I used the party hat and a small star repeatedly in the space with pink ink.  (I also used the small party word that’s from an old Sweet Stamp Shop planner stamp set.)

The best part of masked stamping is pulling off the masking (post-it notes in this case).

Next, I added the “months old” and “year old” stamps from the Baby Plans stamp set.  I also added some washi tape; I used the number candles from the Celebrate set and donut washi from an older Sweet Stamp Shop set.

Next, I added the photos.  I also printed out the “Donut Worry,” which is actually meant to be an iPhone wall paper, and is a free download you can find on the Design + Happiness blog here.  I also glued the invite to a piece of pattern paper, and attached it to the planner page.

To finish off my planner, I added in the stamped images from the Baby Plans set, a few stickers from my stash, and did a little journaling about her milestones.

I love the little label with a baby face on it.  It’s perfect to write in a birthday time or an appointment time.  I stamped the Happy birthday sentiment from the Happy Birthday stamp set above the invite.  I also stamped and colored the Unicorn Donut…perfect for her donut party!

That’s it!  I hope you liked my planner spread!  I want to use the Baby Plans stamp set in a mini album.  I took monthly photos of my baby girl, and this stamp set would be great for a mini album of those photos!

I hope I inspired you to get crafty!  Have an awesome day!

Happy Thursday!

We could all use a bit of rainbows and sunshine in Texas right now.  In my neck of the woods, we just had lots and lots of rain all weekend, but I know Hurricane Harvey devastated other parts of our state.

TGIF!

Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway

CelebratingParents-BlogHop-Graphic

Hey friends, and welcome to the Altenew Celebrating Parents card drive blog hop + giveaway.  You should be arriving from May Sukyong Park‘s blog.

Today, I have a trio of cards to share with you:

ahsang altenewCPBH

 

My first 2 cards feature Altenew’s Best Dad stamp and die set.

ahsang altenewCPBH 1-1

For this card, I stamped the tape measure and tool box images from Altenew’s Best Dad stamp set using Memento tuxedo black ink.  Using copic markers, I colored in the images, and then added some details with a white gel pen.  I also stamped a few of the solid stars using yellow ink.  Then, I used the coordinating dies to diecut the images.

ahsang altenewCPBH 1-3

Next, I worked on my background, which is 2 layers.  On the background, I blended some blue distress inks: tumbled glass, broken china, salty ocean, and a little bit of blueprint sketch to create an ombre background.  For the top layer, I diecut a piece of white cardstock using a stitched rectangle die and a large circle die.  I attached the white cardstock to the ombre background using foam tape.  I attached the tool box and tape measure to the center of the cut out circle using more foam tape.  (I cut a little slit into the tool box image to nest the tape measure in a little.)  Then, I attached the whole panel to an A2 sized navy card base.  I finished off my card with a little watercolor splatters, sequins, and stars.

ahsang altenewCPBH 2-2

For my next card, I stamped the mugs from Altenew’s Best Dad stamp set.  I masked off the “BEST DAD” and mustache to create a few plain mugs.  I colored in 3 mugs using copic markers, and I added a little highlight using a white gel pen.  Then, I used the coordinating dies to diecut the images out.

ahsang altenewCPBH 2-3

To create my background, I diecut a piece of white cardstock using a stitched rectangle die.  Then, I masked off the bottom 1/3 of the cardstock using post-it tape.  Using distress inks: broken china, salty ocean, and just a little bit of blueprint sketch, I loosely ink blended the background.  I sprayed some water onto the ink blending, and then blotted with a paper towel, creating a fun background.  I also ink blended a little scrap of white cardstock with mustard seed distress ink to create the strip of yellow.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink on black cardstock, and heat set it with white embossing powder.  I glued the yellow strip of cardstock onto my background, and then attached my sentiment strip with foam tape.  Next I glued on the trio of mugs.  I attached the entire panel with fun foam onto an A2 sized card base that I created out of navy blue cardstock.  To finish my card, I added a few sparkling clear sequins in various sizes.

 

I created my third card using Altenew’s Best Mom Stamp and die set.

ahsang altenewCPBH 3-1

To create this card, I stamped the floral image from Altenew’s Best Mom stamp set using Versamark ink onto white cardstock.  I heat set the image with white embossing powder. Using distress inks, I watercolored the image.  For the flowers, I used spun sugar and picked raspberry.  For the leaves, I used mowed lawn, mixed with a little bit of lucky clover.  Once dry, I diecut the image using the coordinating die.

ahsang altenewCPBH 3-3

For the background, I loosely watercolored using tumbled glass distress ink.  I also used the distress ink to create paint splatters.  I wanted my stamped floral image to blend in with the background a little, so I used the tumbled glass distress ink to color in some of the negative white space.  Next, I stamped the sunshine sentiment using black archival ink.  I attached the background panel to an A2 sized white card base using fun foam.  Then, I attached the floral image on top using foam tape.  I finished off my card with sparkling clear sequins.

fa la la la LLAMA holiday cards

Hey friends!  I hope December is treating you all well!  December is just flying by for me!  I feel as if I have a to-do list a mile long, and no where near checking anything off!  That’s why quick and easy have been key for me lately!

This year, I put together some super easy mass produced cards for my crafty friends.

ahsang-christmas2016-1

I loved a few of the cards that I created for the caring hearts drive so much (I blogged about it here), I recreated them!  I used the cute llama digital stamp from JustMedigitalstamps etsy shop, and colored them using copic markers whenever I had a spare moment (which isn’t very often since I have a new baby girl).  I used a stitched rectangle die to diecut them into small rectangles, then added some falling snow using a stencil and texture paste to give it a little character.  Finally, I mounted the images on cute patterned paper using fun foam for some height.

I hope you love the cards as much as I do!

Happy Saturday!

Sunshine & Smiles card, featuring Mint Owl Studio

Hey guys!  Today I have my last card for you as a DT member for Mint Owl Studio.  I am going to try and slow down as we prepare for baby #3 to arrive.  Even so, I absolutely love Tracy and Mint Owl Studio, so I hope to be guest posting in the future!

I created a fun summer card using the Mint Owl Studio Beach Babes stamp set.  You can find my card on the Mint Owl Studio blog today as well!

ahsang MOS sunshine smiles 1ahsang MOS sunshine smiles 2

To create my card:

  1. On a piece of white cardstock, I stamped the girl & sand mound images from the Beach Babes stamp set using Memento tuxedo black ink.
  2. I colored in the images with Copic markers and added detail with a white gel pen.
  3. I fussy cut the images, and set them aside.
  4. I die cut a stitched rectangle and pierced circle from another piece of white cardstock.
  5. Using Versamark ink and Ranger gold embossing powder, I stamped and heat set a sentiment from the same stamp set.
  6. I placed the die cut panel over my card base, and lightly traced the circle opening.
  7. I taped the edges of my card base, and then ink blended some Tim Holtz distress inks where I marked the circle.  I used the colors salty ocean & carved pumpkin.
  8. I glued on the sand mound, and then I adhered the girl using foam tape.
  9. I adhered the sentiment panel on top using foam tape.
  10. To finish off my card, I added some gold sequins and some brown sequins (from a previous Mint Owl Studio sequin mix called coffee bean).

I hope you like how my card turned out.  I have always love white on white, so I love the clean look of this card!

Happy Friday y’all!

 

Sweet Birthday card, featuring Mint Owl Studio

It’s July!  Already!  This is a super busy month for us!  We’ve got a wedding, my younger daughter’s birthday, and my husband & I will be celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary!

Today, I have a sweet birthday card, featuring Mint Owl Studio’s Sweet Treats stamp set.

ahsang MOS sweet bday 1ahsang MOS sweet bday 2

Here’s how I made my card:

  1. I die cut a stitched rectangle out of a piece of white cardstock.
  2. Using Memento tuxedo black ink, I stamped the lollipop image from the Sweet Treats stamp set multiple times.
  3. I colored in the lollipops using Copic markers.  I also colored in the lollipops with a clear glitter marker, although you can’t really see it from the photos.
  4. I mounted the colored panel onto a raspberry colored card stock panel using fun foam for dimension.
  5. On a piece of black card stock, I stamped and heat set a sentiment from the same stamp set using Versamark ink and white embossing powder.
  6. I cut out the sentiment in a flag shape, then mounted it using foam adhesive.
  7. To finish up my card, I added some sequins from the Kaleidoscope mix.  (The pink sequins are from a past Mint Owl Studio sequin mix called hearts & kisses.)

I hope you like how my colorful card turned out!  I had fun creating it!

You can find my card on the Mint Owl Studio blog today as well.

Happy Friday!
