Look Out World! card by designer Lori Williams featuring Graphic 45

Hi Crafters, it's Lori and today I have a retro card featuring the stamps from the Graphic 45 collections: Come Away with Me and Raining Cats and Dogs. 

Look Out World! card by Lori Williams

One of my most favorite go to stamps is from the Raining Cats and Dogs's the little scroll flourish and it's such a great way to add that extra little detail around a sentiment or center piece.  It's just simple and so pretty.  The sentiment itself is from the Come Away with Me 3 stamp set and I really like the way the font is open in the middle.  This left me room to go in a add some coordinating color to my sentiment and honestly I don't think it even looks like it was stamped...LOVE IT!!!! 

I added some little handmade flowers to the card along with some sewing machine stitching which is something I love to do to my's that added detail.  With the right paper and the right stamps (Hampton Art) you can pull off one of kind beauties in no time.

Jillibean Soup Cool as a Cucumber Soup cards by designer Joy Ott

Welcome back to the Hampton Art blog! Today I'm sharing two cards using the Cool As A Cucumber Soup line from Jillibean Soup and Hampton Art.

I doubled up the foam tape on the back of the guitar on this first card. It helps give the image more dimension. I also used a single layer of foam tape on the greeting.

I also doubled up the foam tape on the back of the bike on this second card.

Officially Old card by designer Patty Folchert

Just in case you have a friend or family member that needs to be reminded that they are “now officially old”, and who doesn’t? A playful card is just the ticket with a bright color scheme and Hampton Art/Laugh Out Loud and Vintologie stamped images.

Officially Old card by Patty Folchert

Working with a black card base I began with a mat from Holly Berry Borscht/Bite Size Bits “b” side red polka dots. Next using red ink I stamped arrows image onto Soup Staples III/Kraft Triangles paper as shown and corner rounded the mat before adding with 3D foam dots to the card front. Next I added one of the new File Cards from the Soup Staples III sides collection. Then using red ink I stamped the “Officially Old” sentiment onto one of the kraft tags. A wood sprinkle in red enamel was added to the top of the tag and then they were attached to the file card as shown. For just a touch of bling I added five turquoise sequin stars from the Holly Berry Borscht collection.

Now you have a humorous card to share with your older friends or family.

Officially older,

Happy Halloween card by Gretchen McElveen

To make these I started with black cardstock as the base of the cards. The patterned paper is from the Jillibean Soup “Owloween Stew” and “Witches Brew” 6x6 paper pads. Then I used a bunch of fun die cuts (aren’t the tags & cat so cute?!) and the “Halloween” mini placemat to embellish the cards. I also embellished with string and some of the KI Memories glitter dots for a little sparkle. I used lot of foam adhesive to adhere the die cuts to give the cards some fun dimension. Thanks for looking and happy Halloween!

Bonne Fete card by designer Gini Williams Cagle

Today I have a girly-girl card to share with you.  It just seems that perfume bottles and lavender are just meant to be together!  I combined papers from Graphic 45 along with their Perfume stamp set for this sweet little note card.

I stamped the perfume bottle in black and fussy cut the image.  Then I stamped the "memories" label on the bottle with purple ink.  I used foam dots to attach it to the card to add some height.

You're Too Tweet! card by designer Deborah Nolan featuring Jillibean Soup

Hello, Stampin' Addicts!
Today's card features a sentiment stamp and patterned paper from Jillibean Soup as well as a little bit of embossing paste action!
Pin It
(I had to "fix" a less than stellar gackground issue in my picture, so if it looks a little funky, that's why!)
S  U  P  P  L  I  E  S
Cardstock; Patterned Paper: Spicy Social Soup (Jillibean Soup); Stamp (Jillibean Soup); Wood Embellishment (Studio Calico); Other: embossing paste, Diamond Glaze; foam dimensional tape, glue dots, embroidery floss, twine, button; Tools: paper cutter, scoreboard, bone folder, corner rounder, trowel, needle  
I  N  S  T  R  U  C  T  I  O  N  S
  1. Make card base for a 4.25” x 5.5” card and round opposite corners.
  2. Apply embossing paste with trowel over stencil and let dry.
  3. Once embossing paste has dried, cut a panel of patterned paper and adhere.
  4. Stamp sentiment.
  5. Cut strip of icon images; tie twine around, tie bow and secure with glue dot.
  6. Adhere icon element strip with dimensional tape.
  7. Adhere wood accent with Diamond Glaze over bow's center.
  8. Thread button and adhere in center of wood accent with glue dot.
T  I  P
Make sure you wash your stencil and trowel immediately after use. Otherwise, it will dry and damage your stencil.
If you haven't played with embossing paste yet, you need to remedy that ASAP!
As Martha would say, It's a good thing.
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!

May All Your Dreams… card by designer Patty Folchert

Here is a “sweet” card created with its own magic wand, suitable for a tween girl, small girl’s Birthday or baby shower card. This card came together with JIllibean’s newest papers and embellishments from the Soup Staples III collection and a fun Vintologie stamp and stencil set.

May All Your Dreams Come True card by Patty Folchert

First I created the card base from Soup Staples III/Graph It paper. Next I chose a Notebook Tag from the Everyday pack and stamped the Vintologie sentiment in black ink. Then, I grabbed the chevron stencil out of the Vintologie stamp and stencil pack. Using white pigment ink I inked up the stencil onto plain kraft paper and set aside to dry. Then I chose two of the new kraft tags from the Soup Staples Sides collection and used the Soup Staples/Kraft Triangles as a backer for the “Sweet” tag and some Holly Berry Borscht/3 Cups of Presents for the “star cutout” tag backer. The next step was to fussy cut two strips from the stenciled chevrons into arrows as shown. Then I arranged the tags onto the card front as shown with a piece of the Soup Staples/Read Me in the center. Last I corner rounded the bottom corners and added the star stick pin and white cotton string double bow.

There you have it, a precious card to share with that special little one in your life.
