Easter Dresses & new SVGs!

My mom stopped by for a visit this week and brought my twins the most lovely Easter dresses! She sewed pretty cotton dresses with matching purses, my girls were delighted and can’t wait to wear them (which will not be before Easter because my girls have the tendency to go on woodland hikes and make mud pies regardless of what they are wearing!) Even though I don’t have pictures of them in their dresses yet I couldn’t help make a scrapbook page on which I will later add a photo of the two of them on Easter (BEFORE any mud pies are made LOL!) I use my new Party Dress SVG set from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff for die cut:

 

For the title I used the fonts LD This and That and LD Buttercream from Lettering Delights. I discovered a quick tip for welding fonts in SCAL2(like I did on the word “Dresses” with the font LD Buttercream), after typing simply select the arrow tool and drag a binding box around the word, then click weld. I am embarrassed to say how long it took me to figure that you, I’ve clicked the word and clicked “weld” (that’s how you would do it in SCAL1) and it would not weld, dragging the box around the word is key! BTW there is no cursive font better for cutting than LD Buttercream, it is nice and chunky!

 

I sent this card to my mom as to thank her for the dresses, I love the sweet apron!

 

Here is a look at the new Party Dress SVG set I used in today’s project.

Joie de Vivre!

Happy Sunday folks! It is suddenly starting to feel like fall around here, it makes me want to curl up beside the fire with a good book and a glass of Pinot Noir, speaking of wine, have you seen the “Bon Appetit” stamp set from The Rubber Cafe? It is fabulous, here is a couple of cards I whipped up last night with it:

Stamps: The Rubber Cafe, Cardstock: Co'ordinations, DCWV, otherL clear ink, markers, embossing powder

Stamps: The Rubber Cafe, Cardstock: Co'ordinations, DCWV, other: clear ink, markers, embossing powder

I used my Cricut and SCAL software to make the cards, you can grab my free template and cutting flies below. The purple bottle is cut from Co’ordanations cardstock with the lighter side on the inside so your writing will show up ;) The green bottle is textured cardstock from Die Cuts With a View. I used the Fleuradidy 2 stamp and clear ink to stamp directly on the textured cardstock (these stamps are so deeply etched and wonderful that they even stamp well on textured cardstock!) then I heat embossed it with gold powder. I smooshed the clear pad on the bottle top and embossed it to look like the foil seal that champagne bottles have, easy, quick,  clever! On the inside I did tone on tone stamping with the pretty leaf stamp, it just gives you a little extra flair i think ;)

here is the inside of the card

To stamp the wine label I inked up the stamp in caramel then used tombow (use any water based marker for this, tombow happens to be my favorite) brush markers to add green, red and purple to the grapes, breath on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp on cream cardstock, cut out and adhere to card.

Using markers to add multi colors to a rubber stamp is quick, easy and fun!

Halloween in August {and a freebie!}

***We are having some technical difficulties with the freebie link this week, while I sort it out you can download this weeks freebie here, Please be sure to visit the design team to see what you can make with it ;) ******

One of my friends took her family camping last weekend and the campground was having Halloween in August, wow what a cool idea I thought, and with my new Halloween stamps I am good to go:

digital Stamps: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (white), DCWV (orange), Bazzil (purple), Paper co (black), Colored Pencils: Prismacolor, Rubber stamps: Inkadinkado, InqueBotique, Tool: Scor-Pal, Cricut+SCAL software, Crop-a-dial

digital Stamps: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (white), DCWV (orange), Bazzil (purple), Paper co (black), Colored Pencils: Prismacolor, Rubber stamps: Inkadinkado, InqueBotique, Tool: Scor-Pal, Cricut+SCAL software, Crop-a-dial

On this card I used A Cute Witch and Harry the Spider digital stamps from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff. I colored them with colored pencils then blended them with a blender pen that I had filled with goo-gone. Then I used a star background rubber stamp (Inque Boutique) and clear embossing ink to stamp around the witch and used a pom-pom to dab chalk over that to make the purple star design in the background.

I used my cricut and SCAL software to cut the spiderweb edge card (you can download that svg file below) then used spray adhesive to glue it to a 6″x12″ sheet of Bazzil cardstock, then I trimmed around the web. The cardstock backing adds color while making the card more sturdy. I embossed “Trick or Treat” (inkadinkado) with white on a black scrap, mounted it with orange and adhered it to the card and added eyelets for decoration. I cut the stars with my Cricut and SCAL software then gave them a coat of glitter glue.
