Let's Party WILD

Hello, everyone! It is Jessi here today. I love making CAS (Clean and Simple) cards. They are super easy cards to create. Another thing I love... stamps that have coordinating dies! They also make card-making easy!

Today, I am pairing up my favorite style with some of my favorite supplies! Avery Elle's Wild Birthday stamps and coordinating dies and a variety of Chameleon markers.


I started this card with a blank white 3.75in x 5in cardstock panel. The banner stamp is done at an angle to make it look like it was hanging off trees. The letters from the stamp set were stamped onto the pendants to spell PARTY. The banner image is colored in using a variety of blues and greens.


The animals are stamped onto white cardstock and cut out using the coordinating dies. The animals are colored in with markers. Before the animals are attached to the panel, I used the Pink & Main's Scalloped Waves dies to create the green grass background and attached it at the bottom of the panel. The animals are attached using tape adhesive and a foam dot. The panel is attached to a Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangles diecut and is mounted onto the card front.

Beware if ZOMBIES!!!

Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! Who is ready for Halloween? The decorations are starting to show up in the stores and Pink & Main's new Halloween sets are now available!

Today, I am working with the Zombies stamp set and the coordinating dies.


I paired up the Zombie's boy zombie with some fun Halloween printed papers. The zombie image is stamped with black ink and colored in with a variety of Peerless Watercolors. The image is cut out using the dies and attached to the card. The fun phrase is stamped onto to printed paper. I thought the card needed a little something extra, so I stamped 3 skulls and used the coordinating dies on them. They were added randomly onto the card.

Joy Clair Hoop Art & Bible Journaling

Hello, friends! It is Jessi from the Joy Clair design team. I have been enjoying making a variety of projects lately! I actually had to challenge myself yesterday to sit down and make a card! I actually finished my projects for today's post last week. It has been super hard to keep one of these projects under wraps! I stepped out of my comfort zone and so glad that I did!

My first project for today highlights the new Bee Kind stamp set. This stamp set is part of the Color by Faith stamp series.


My second project for the day is a Bible page using the new My Cup Runneth Over stamp set.

Celebrate with Concord & 9th

I saw that Concord & 9th was going to start a new challenge blog, Where Creativity Meets C9,  starting next month. They are looking for a couple people to complete their design team. I love their stamps, so I decided to throw my name in the hat. It would be a great opportunity!

Here is the card I created for this design team search, using their 


To create the background of this card, there is a stamp with 5 candles on it. I actually cut the stamp into five individual stamps. **Tip**I use to hesitate cutting apart clear stamps! But sometimes I only want to use part of a larger image. It is much easier to cut the stamp than covering part of the stamp with tape. It is easy to line the image back up and stamp whenever needed.

To start the card, I stamped the cake image in the center of the card. Candle images are stamped randomly around the card. To fill in part of the empty space, I stamped the star image. Time to color in! I used a variety of watercolors to color in the images. I used a light blue to fill in the background. Once the paint dried, I stamped the star clusters to all the empty spaces. The sentiment is stamped onto a die cut banner and attached to the card.

Good luck to all those who apply!

Have a great day!

MarkerPop & The Greeting Farm's Bible Page

Hello, everyone! It is Jessi here today. I am mainly a cardmaker, but recently, I started my journey with Bible Journaling. You can use a variety of mediums on the Bible pages. Today I will be using some Zig Clean Color Markers and some Chameleon markers, as well.

Along with the markers, I am working with the super cute stamp set, Jesus is the Way, from The Greeting Farm.


To start this page, I stamped the angel image onto white cardstock. Chameleon makers were use to color in the hair and skin parts of the image. The image is cut out and set aside. I took a piece of scrapbook paper and cut a strip to fit in the margin of the Bible. The angel image is attached towards the bottom of the strip and phrase ' Praise the Lord' is stamped towards the top of the strip. Once this is done, set the strip aside and move onto the page itself.


The Greeting Farm's Jesus is the Way stamp set includes a lot of word stamps.  I decided to use a variety of them to stamp onto the page. I am highlighting the words on a certain verse. In between some of the words and the empty spaces, I stamped the butterfly image or the trio of hearts stamp. The butterflies are colored in with a variety of yellow and orange ZIG Clean Color Markers.


To finish the page, I used a piece of washi tape to attach the strip of paper with the angel image. The tape is placed at the top of the strip (Half on the paper strip and half on the Bible page.) This allows you to flip up the strip to see the stamped verse underneath.

MFT Camp Bonfire Entry

Print



Last week, My Favorite Things had a fun Camp Create Session. My goal was to participate in all the sessions, however...life got in the way. I did manage to crank out one card for the Camp Create Farewell Bonfire.

Print

This session is called Single Layer Savvy. The challenge is to create a card using one layer. So here is what I came up with using the fun Birds of Paradise stamp set.


I used a variety of stamps from the Birds of Paradise stamp set to create this scene. To prevent the images from overlapping one another, I used the masking technique. For this technique, I stamped the image on a different sheet and cut the image out. Before I stamp the next image on the scene, I would use the mask to keep the stamps from overlapping. I used bright ZIG Clean Color markers to color in the images.

Thank you for stopping by!

Pink & Main's Magical Unicorns & Coordinating Dies

Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! Who is loving the newest Pink & Main release?
I know that I am!

Today, I am working with the Magical Unicorns stamp set. This stamp set was released a few months back, but the coordinating dies were released this week.


The idea for this card started with the background print. The print includes a few small moons, so I decided to make a larger one for the center of the card. I stamped the unicorn image and colored it in with a variety of markers. The horn on the unicorn is colored in with a glitter pen. The image is cut out using the coordinating die. The card needed a little more, so I used the star die from the set and added a few around the card. The sentiment is stamped onto the card.

Hello Sweet Forest Friends

Hello, everyone! It is Jessi here today. I love stamps. In fact, I probably need to join a support group. I have probably three or four stamp companies that are my favorites. Today I will be showcasing products from one of them... My Favorite Things. Believe it or not, it has only been in the last year that I started to hear much about them. And I have been falling in loving with every release since!

On my card today, I am using the super adorable, Sweet Forest Friends stamp set and the Sweet Forest Friends coordinating dies. The combination of the stamps and dies make it super easy and super fast to put together amazing cards!


One of my favorite type of cards to create are scene cards! So for this card I used stitched dies to highlight the scene, pendant for the background and rectangle for the scene itself. The next step is to stamp and color in the images to create the scene. I used a variety of Chameleon markers on the images. For additional effect, I used a White Gelly Roll pen to add white dots to the deer's back. Once the images were ready, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.


Time to piece the card together! First up, I choice a fun fall color print for the background the card. the next layer is the stitched pendant. Next is the blue stitched rectangle that represents the sky. I used the same stitched rectangle and the Lawn Fawn Grassy die to create the basis of the scene. The stamped elements are added to the scene. The last part is to stamp the sentiment. I thought 'Hello, Friend' was perfect because the deer is looking up at the bird.
