Two Cards | One Stamp Set

Hi all, it’s Amy!  I’m sharing a card duo that features the Mini Nuts and Bolts set.  I love how just a change in the ink color can really shake up a card design.

Here’s a ‘traditional’ look:

Traditional translating to real life colors.  Nuts and bolts tend to be silver so I went with a cement color and a black sentiment from the Best Bots set.

Here’s the non-traditional version.  I love the look of the neon ombre ink:

Honestly, in my household generally I don’t go with traditional.  I adore color and love to spread the happiness.  What about you?

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you’re having a great week!

Shaking things up!

Hey everyone, it’s Amy!  I’m back with a fun shaker card project that features the Coolest Ever stamp set and sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps!

I’ve been on an aqua and peach kick.  I think it screams spring/summer, how about you?  I started off with a panel just a bit smaller than an A2 card front.  I die cut a heart and backed it with acetate.  I prepped the panel for my shaker card and then went to work with the stamped images.

I stamped them out with alcohol friendly black ink and colored them with markers.  I used the coordinating Coolest Ever Dies.

I popped my heart panel in my Mini MISTI and stamped out the sentiment.  I arranged my Spiegelmom Scraps sequins from their Sunny Winter collection.   I finished putting together my main panel and topped off my card with the trio of treats!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you have an awesome week!

Rainbow Inspired Card

Hi all, it’s Amy here with you today sharing some rainbow goodness.  I am slowly building a birthday card stash so that I don’t have to frantically design one at the last minute.  Are birthday cards something that you generally design?  For some reason they aren’t for me.  I like to think I scored bonus points for this gender neutral design:

Rainbows make me a happy crafter, how about you?  I started with a panel from the Robots 6×6 Paper Pad.  I adhered it to a red card base.  Truthfully I buy my card bases already cut/scored.

I inked up those sweet cupcakes from the Bday Bash Clear Stamp set.  I was inspired by my teamie Laurel and paper pieced their tops with papers from the Rainbows +Robots 6×6 Paper Pads.  Their cupcake liners and the party hat have been colored with alcohol markers.

I’d love to find out what are your go-to cards that you design?  I love ‘just because’ or ‘hello’.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great weekend!

Using inspiration For a Project

Hey all, it’s Amy here and I’m so excited to be a part of the Pattern Happy Design Team!  Today I’m sharing a card that was inspired by this month’s Pattern Happy Sketch Challenge:

It’s such a fun sketch, isn’t it?  Here’s how I was inspired:

Let’s start with the fun paper!  The black and white panel is from the Geofetti 6×6 Paper Pad and the lime green is from the Rainbows 6×6 Paper Pad.

I inked up the Best Bots Clear Stamp set and colored them with alcohol markers.  Love the coordinating Best Bots Die set!

I love that this is a gender/age neutral card, definite bonus points!

We hope that you join in the fun with the Sketch Challenge!

Thanks so much for stoppin’ by and I hope you have a fabulous week!
