Sweet Thanks Card

Hello, friends! Hope you are staying warm! I know I am enjoying the colder weather, but I also know that I am in the minority on that! But the cooler weather allows me more time to get crafty!
 
Who is ready for a simple card to create? I love DCWV products because they making crafting super easy!
 
Here is the card I created for today's post:

 
DCWV provides a variety of Box of Cards bases! This card uses one of the square cards for the Brights card collection. The patterned papers actually come from one of the Insta Photo Fun Accessories collections. The collections include 2x2, 2x4, and 4x4 pre cut papers that make is easy to create an album. But I decided to use some on this card. The precut pieces are added to a white card layer. The sentiment is cut out of two shades of pink to create the shadow effect and attached in the middle of the card.
 
How simple was that to create!
 
Hope you stop by the DCWV blog to see the latest creations for their design team. Also, stop by their Facebook page to hear the latest news!
 
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful (and warm) day!

Happy Birthday Movie Star!

It's Jessi from Kissin' Krafts sharing my latest Pink & Main project. Today's card uses focuses on the new Movie Star stamp set. When I first saw this stamp set, the ideas started to flow! I have a sketch pad that includes a few more cards I need to crank out!

 
The large image from the Movie Star stamp set is perfect for coloring! And perfect for improving your coloring skills!  Once the image is colored, I cut it out and set aside.  Next the background image is created by repeat stamping the film stamp across the back mat . The colored image is attached using a foam dot. The sentiment is stamped on the a white stripe of cardstock. To fill in the white space, stars from the You Rocket stamp set are stamped in red ink. The sentiment is also attached with foam dots.

My first post with Pink and Main Stamps

I am excited to be sharing my first post for Pink and Main Stamps! Their stamps are simply adorable and I am having so much fun getting inky with them! My first card is using one of the new Pink and Main stamp sets from the Mega Release. To see all the stamps, check it out HERE!

For this card, I am using the You Rocket stamp set! One thing I love about the Pink and Main images is being able to paper-piece! Just look at the card below!

 
To create the paper-piece image, the image is stamped multiple times on a variety of papers. After a lot of fussy-cutting, I pieced the image together. Doing this step is the most time consuming part of this card. Once that is done, enamel dots are added for the lights of the spaceship.
 
The star printed paper makes the perfect backing! The moon image from the You Rocket stamp set is stamped with gray ink and cut out using a circle punch. The sentiment also came from the same Pink and Main stamp set. The original sentiment would not fit on the banner, so I used tape to cover part of the sentiment and stamped in two lines. The final touches to the card were the stamped stars on the banner and adding the paper-pieced image to the card using foam dots.
 
 
Thank you for stopping by today!

DCWV Layered Birthday Card

Hello, DCWV friends! It is Jessi here. Today I am sharing a fun card using one of DCWV Premium Paper Collection! This collections come with 5 different cardstocks and textures that go perfectly together to create any project.
 
Here is the card I created:
 
 
To start the project, I decided which papers I was going to start of with.

 
 
 Now it is time to create the card base (made from a greyish brown cardstock from the DCWV Naturals Stack) and the layers to go on the front of the card.
 
 
 
 The vision of the card includes the sentiment off to the right and will add embellishments to the left. So to begin, attach a strip of the yellow cardstock towards the bottom of the card. Stamp the sentiment.
 
 
 For the flowers, I fussy-cut a few of the flowers from the patterned paper. To add dimension to the card, I used a foam dot on the larger flower.
 
 
 At first I thought the card would be finished, however, it felt like it was missing something. So out came some fun DCWV Gem Stickers.
 
 
The gems were added to the top right corner of the card for the finishing touch!
  
 
Thank you for stopping by today!

Little Tangles Challenge - Watercolors

Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you are enjoying your week and finding some time to create something wonderful!

Today starts a new challenge over on the Little Tangles challenge. And it is all about watercolors!

 
Here is my card using the Neat & Tangled Kindness Matters stamp set:

 
 
 
I am always inspired with the watercolor cards I have been seeing in the blog world. However, I find it very hard to create such beauties! After several attempts, I finally brought out some stencils to see if it will help me along the way!
 
I traced the circles with watercolor pencils. Once all the circles were done, I used water to spread the color some. Once the paint was dry, the sentiment was stamped and the card was finished!

Watercoloring with Lawn Fawn

Hello, Butterfly Reflections friends! It is my day on the Butterfly Reflections blog today!

Today is using stamps from one of my favorite stamping company, Lawn Fawn! I love the selection Butterfly Reflections carries! From the new and the old! Check out the Lawn Fawn selection to see what is in the store now!

Here is my card using Lawn Fawn's Wish You Were Here stamp set:

 
The bottom sentiment came from Lawn Fawn's Milk and Cookies stamp set. I love how simple it is to create the sentiment on a curve with clear stamps! I believe it adds so much to overall look of the card!
 
I attempted to watercolor the map to resemble the landscape of the US. I love how watercoloring can be somewhat forgiving!
 
Check out the Butterfly Reflections for the newest products available!

February DCWV Stack-o-holic Challenge

Can you believe that it is February already? DCWV is starting the new month with a new sketch challenge! Check out the DCWV blog for more details on the February Stack-o-holic Challenge.

Here is the card sketch used to spark your creativity:


And here is my card:

 
I found this pretty foil doily and wanted to use gold as the main color.  I used paper from the DCWV Sparkling Holiday paper stack. I pretty much stuck to the sketch and finished the card with adding one DCWV Mirrored Heart Embellishment.
 
Hope you are feeling some inspiration to play along! However, if you need more inspiration to spark your creativity, hope on over to the DCWV blog to see what some talented designers created!
 
Thank you for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful day!
