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.

Altenew is currently hosting a card drive to bring a little joy to seniors who are in nursing homes or shelters on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.  You can find out all about it on the Celebrating Parents Card Drive post on Altenew’s blog.  You can send in cards through May 3, 2017.  I encourage you to create and send in as many cards as you can.

Valentine cards, featuring My Favorite Things

Hello friends!

Valentine’s day is upon us!  I absolutely love this holiday for all it’s crafty goodness.  Pink & Red?  Love.  Flowers?  Love!  Hearts?  Love, love, love!  I love helping my girls decorate little boxes for their school Valentine’s day parties.  I love surprising my girlies with little pink gifts too.  How about you?  Do you have a love or hate relationship with Valentine’s day?

Today, I’m guest designer on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog, and I’ve got 2 handmade Valentines cards featuring My Favorite Things.  I use my favorite MFT Roses All Over background stamp, MFT Beary Special Birthday stamp set, and my new favorite MFT Otterly Love You stamp set.

cards for 2016 Caring Hearts Card Drive

Hey guys!

Just dropping in with a quick blog post to share the cards that I made for the 2016 Caring Hearts Card Drive.  You can read about the card drive on Jennifer McGuire’s blog here.

My hands are pretty full with baby girl, so I didn’t get a chance to make that many cards this year.  I had a few things colored left over from the holiday season last year, and I have been coloring a little bit for Kathy’s 30 day coloring challenge, so I did manage to make 15 cards.  To see the cards I made for last year’s card drive, see my blog post here.

I will try and link to some of the supplies I used below.

Here are some iPhone pics of my cards:

2 cards featuring Simon Says Stamp’s You Matter stamp set

Hey guys!  How are you?  I am still trying to cool off in this Texas heat, lol!  I’m officially in my 3rd trimester, and I feel like I’m carrying around a personal furnace!

It’s September 1st, and that means…Woo hoo, it’s #Stamptember at Simon Says Stamp!  A lot of exclusive product is being released today.  I received the Simon Says Stamp You Matter sentiment stamp set to try out, and it is an awesome set!  It is so versatile, and I love that giant scripted “you.”

I made 2 cards:

ahsang SSS you matter 1

ahsang SSS you matter 2ahsang SSS you matter 3ahsang SSS you matter 4

I know I’ll get a lot of use out of this sentiment set.

To make my cards, I heat white embossed the roses & leaves images onto water color paper that I die cut using stitched rectangle dies.  I water colored the images with Tim Holtz distress inks.  Then, I heat embossed the sentiment with Versafine ink and clear embossing powder.  To finish off my card, I first popped it up using foam tape and then I added gold splatters and sequins.

Supplies used:

Simon Says Stamp You Matter stamp set

Simon Says Stamp Best Mom Ever stamp set

Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die set

Versamark ink

Wow superfine white embossing powder

Versafine ink

Ranger clear embossing powder

Tim Holtz Distress inks
