By The Sea project by designer Gini Williams Cagle

By The Sea project by Gini Williams Cagle

What would the weekend be without ending up with paint all over my hands?  If that is the criteria for a good weekend, then this was one of the best!  I really love the Graphic 45 By the Sea stamps sets; so much so that I used all three of them on this layout.  They are perfect for making your own embellishments to add to your clusters.

Come Away With Me card by designer Lori Williams

Come Away With Me card by Lori Williams

Can you say layers, layers and then more layers for this beauty? 
I love adding layers to my card various designer papers, stamped images and foam tape.  It really makes for a detailed and interesting card.  This card certainly takes advantage of those techniques.  Each of the designer paper elements was double layered on cream colored cardstock and inked.  The card itself is 6 x 6 so it gave plenty of room to layer it up.  

I love the featured oval in the center.  That image was stamped on designer paper and then colored in with watercolor pencils.   I though the watercolor pencils really gave a soft vintage feel that went with the theme perfectly.  In each of the corners of the card I stamped a tulip flourish for just a bit more detail.  It’s always nice to have various elements to draw your eye all around the card.  The two mini tags where created by stamping the map stamp on cream colored cardstock and then cutting out into a tag shaped, ink around the edges and then punch a hole in the top and add a ribbon pull.  With everything all together this card has great layering and a lot of interest.  
Here are the stamp set I used to create this card: Come Away with Me #1 / ICO308, Come Away with Me # 2 ICO309 and Come Away with Me #3 IC0310.

Raining Cats and Dogs card by designer Lori Williams

Raining Cats and Dogs Card by Lori Williams 
You are so going to love the latest release of adorable stamps featuring Cats and Dogs by Graphic 45.  Every animal owners need to be sure to get each of these stamp sets as they are just so stinkin cute.  

Today’s card uses the coordinating paper from the Cats and Dogs collection, but the star of this card is the stamped cat in the middle.  I started off with a Kraft based card, inked and rounded the edges.  I then layered two of the designer patterned papers inked and rounded the edges on those too.  Next I made a scalloped border across the middle.  I added a bit more detail to the top and bottom using the swirling stamp.  This is one that I’m finding I’m using over and over again on projects.  It just adds that little something extra that every card needs.  Then the layering begins,  I used a piece of chipboard from the collection and backed it with the red polka dot paper.  Next I stamped the kitty cameo on some cream colored cardstock and fussy cut out.  I attached it with foam tape to the middle and then added the final bow on the top.  
Be sure to get these stamp sets as they a really are must have  :

Note of Thanks cards by designer Melinda Spinks

Hello and welcome... it's Melinda with you today and I have a set of three cards to share that are super quick to make using a stamped sentiment and a simple embellishment to create a play on words.

1. Cut and score white cardstock to measure 4" x 5.5" when folded.
2. Cut a single sheet of colored cardstock to measure 3.75" x 5.25" and using foam pop dots adhere to your card base.
3. Cut a single sheet of white cardstock to measure 3.5" x 5"
4. Stamp your sentiment on the single sheet of white cardstock just above the halfway mark and centred.
5. Using a foam pop dot adhere your embellishment above the sentiment.
6. Using foam pop dots adhere your top layer (single white sheet) to the colored sheet of cardstock.

Happy Birthday Tag by designer Gretchen McElveen

Happy Birthday tag by Gretchen McElveen

Hi there! 
I got a little “green” the other day and used the backing from a package of buttons to make this easy birthday tag. The backing that the buttons came attached to was perfect for a cute tag! It already has a hole in the top and the bottom has a cute scalloped border. No way I could just throw it away! So I covered up everything printed on the backing with some patterned paper in the “Birthday Bisque” line from Jillbean Soup and the tag started taking shape! I added a die cut star and some star confetti (from KI Memories!) to embellish around the sentiment. Then I finished it off with some ribbon at the top! Thanks for looking!

Love Today card by designer Patty Folchert

Love Today Wedding Card
The new Doilies and Woodgrain stamp and stencil set from Jillibean Soup helped me to create a chic non-traditional wedding card. 

Love Today card by Patty Folchert

Using the doilies from the set I stamped them onto the cream card base using black ink. Then I added the flashcard with a charcoal gray cardstock mat. Next I added the KI Memories black glitter dots and the Wise Words Love sticker. Then I added the icon sticker couple with 3D foam dots and one large clear wood sprinkle for a dramatic effect.

A surprisingly simple card that makes a big statement for that big day! I really love these doily stamps, so versatile.

Stamped with Love,
