Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today with my spring coffee card, using all those fun coffee sets from Skipping Stones Design .

SSD 3-2017 a

My stamp supplies:

Id-pick-you coffee2Funny Coffee

I’d Pick You, Coffee Vol.2, Funny Coffee

I first stamped the flowers from the set I’d Pick You and masked them. I stamped the coffee cup from the set Coffee Vol.2 and sentiment (Funny Coffee) and colored the images with water color. Added a strip of Kraft paper on the left side.

I am sure you know that the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog hop is going on right now – tomorrow is the last day. As you see, Skipping Stones Design has a fabulous selection of coffee themed stamps.

Enjoy your coffee!

BRAS VOLUME #1

Martha Lucia Gomez Blog, Inspiration, Martha Lucia Gomez Hernandez, Samples 1 Comment

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here with you!

Bras are like friends is the card that I have to share with you today. I made this card using the stamp set Bras Volume #1 from our Skipping Stones Store and this is definitely a special set. Take a look at my card:

To create this card I used Versafine Onix Ink and Clear Embossing Powder.

  1. Take a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamp the images of two of the bras from the stamp set Bras Volume #1 using Versafine Onix ink. Cover the images with clear embossing powder and melt the powder with the heat tool.
  2. Color the details of bras using a pink marker.
  3. Stamp the sentiments from the same stamp set on the top of the paper using Versafine Onix ink and clear embossing powder. Melt the powder with the heat tool.
  4. Create a faux watercolor using distress ink and aquapinter over the sentiment.
  5. Cut a decorated frame and paste over the stamped layer with On point Glue. I used the Loopy Rectangle Dies from Gina Marie Designs.
  6. Paste the decorated layer with dimensionals over the card base using dimensionals.
  7. Finalize the decorations adding some little sequins.

Pretty cool!

What do you think? I would love to hear what you think below. But between you and me I think that Bras are like friends!

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!

Birthday Purses Card

Birthday Purses Card

Martha Lucia Gomez Blog, Design Team, Inspiration, Martha Lucia Gomez Hernandez Leave a Comment

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a card that I made using a fun and beautiful stamp set called Birthday Purses from Skipping Stones. I don’t know if this happens to you, but sometimes I see some stamp sets that I feel the need to have, but then I don’t know how to use them, and this is one of these. Take a look at my card:

Birthday Purses Card

In my real life I am addicted to purses, shoes and die cuts, so this card is a great combination of all my passions, don’t you think?

  • I created the base card with watermelon wonder card stock. The size is 4-1/4″x11″ with score in 5-1/2″.
  • Then I stamped the images of two of the purses included on the stamp set Birthday Purses over designer paper using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and fussy cut them with my scissors. To create a contrast over one of these, I colored the handles with a brown copic marker.
  • I took a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and I arranged the purses on the lower part of this.
  • I cut the die cut Heart Balloons from Die Versions using my new favorite metallic foil paper. It is RINEA Metallic paper and it is amazing  because the color is on both sides and the material is more solid than other metals. You can use it with punches, die cuts or electronic machines. I used the copper color and I love how the heart balloons from Die Versions turned out.
  • After cutting the heart balloons, I pasted them on top of the vanilla layer using Imagine On Point Glue.
  • Using my MISTI (HLL & SS) , I stamped two of the sentiments included on the stamp set Birthday Purses using Versafine Vintage Sephia.
  • I pasted the the purses with dimensionals and voila, my card is ready!

Birthday Purses Card

 

On this card I combined not only my personal passions, but also three different materials: card stock, designer or decorated paper and metal foil. Easy and fun!

I hope my project inspires you to no be afraid to mix colors and textures in one creation, just keep in mind the balance of the things. Have a great day and celebrate Birthday purses with metallic heart balloons.

See you soon!

You Still Give Me Butterflies

Debra Davison Blog 3 Comments

Deb here with my February Stamp Tramp post, just in time for Valentine’s Day.  I love all things hearts but decided to go in a different direction and use some of the fabulous butterflies from the Let It Be stamp set .

{"source":"editor","total_effects_time":0,"total_draw_time":0,"total_effects_actions":0,"uid":"EB39B317-0194-4C3E-A42E-27DF509E38EC_1486960809842","tools_used":{"crop":0,"perspective":0,"shape_crop":0,"stretch":0,"free_crop":0,"resize":0,"adjust":0,"clone":0,"selection":0,"flip_rotate":0,"tilt_shift":0,"enhance":0,"curves":0,"motion":0},"layers_used":0,"effects_tried":0,"sources":[],"brushes_used":0,"subsource":"done_button","photos_added":0,"effects_applied":0,"total_draw_actions":0,"height":2106,"total_editor_time":70,"width":1990,"origin":"gallery","total_editor_actions":{"text":0,"shape_mask":0,"border":0,"square_fit":0,"lensflare":0,"clipart":0,"frame":0,"callout":0,"mask":0}}

  • I used a card base with large multi-colored dots from Paperlove. The butterfly images from Let It Be were stamped on papers from the Pebbles “Be Mine” collection and DCWV “Watercolor” stack. Each was fussy-cut.
  • The butterflies were scored using my Martha Stewart Mini Score Board. I scored some in the center and some off-center, then folded them up to create dimension on my card.
  • Stampin’ Up Dimensionals were used to pop up the butterflies, one in each circle in the 3 top rows of the card. I placed the dimensionals in different places on each butterfly, adhered them to the card, then folded the butterfly up along the score line.
  • My fun DYMO Caption Maker created the sentiment ” You Still Give Me Butterflies “. I adhered the words to the bottom of the card.
  • I punched 2 butterflies out of an undeveloped x-ray film.  I got the film when I was working in the ICU and have used them many times in my projects. I placed a butterfly on each side of the sentiment using my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher Stapler.

This card was fun to make. I love how it looks like each butterfly is getting ready to take off. I’ll be giving this card to my guy along with some of his favorite goodies – Red Velvet Oreos, Sweet-tart Hearts and a book. I hope that you have some special plans with your Valentine and have created something special. I’ll be back next month with another project. Until then, be creative !!

Cornelia Wenokor Blog Leave a Comment

Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today using this adorable set from Skipping Stones Design called Sassy Snow. After all we still have winter, although not much snow here in New Jersey, where I live.

SSD 1-2017 a

This is the complete set! So may possibilities here! LOVE those sentiments!

sassy-snow

I dry embossed my background. stamped the snow woman onto a piece of scrap card stock and colored it with watercolor pens and fuzzy cut it. Stamped the sentiment onto light blue vellum and heat embossed it, so the ink does not smear. attached it and mounted the snow woman with foam tale. Added Stickles to the bigger snowflake and Wink of Stella to the hat and scarf, although it does not show in the picture.

Deb here today with my first 2017 Skipping Stones project. I am using  a great stamp set that combines images with bars of music, and for my card, I chose a floral design and made this card for a dear friend.

SSDJan173

  • I started off with a card base by Molly & Rex , purchased in a boxed set at Michaels . There are the prettiest card/envelope combos in this box of cards !! They are all watercolor-inspired designs.
  • A silver doily was adhered in the upper left corner of the card base.
  • Over the doily, I placed a Becky Higgins “Project Life” for American Crafts journal card  This card has some faux stitching and also gold lettering. I love the look of silver and gold together and also the contrast of the watercolor background on the card base with the pattern on the journal card.
  • The stamp set I used is Heartsong 2 . I chose to use the floral image and stamped on several shades of pink and green Basic Gray paper with Memories Black India Ink . I then fussy-cut the images.  I love how the music shows through on these images.
  • I adhered the leaves and corner flower on the bottom right side. The  other 2 flowers were popped up for some dimension using foam dimensionals  from Stampin’ Up.
  • Images were adhered with Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue unless otherwise stated.

I hope that this project has inspired you. I love to use journaling cards when I create. You can make a card quickly using them with just a bit of stamping. I look forward to sharing my SSD projects with you again in 2017. Take a look at their amazing stamps here on the SSD website.
