The Month Of Love - February Anything Goes Challenge

I created my cards using the new stamp sets from Joy Clair called Scriptures of Love, Love Languages, and Valentine Background Builder.

The Month Of Love - February Anything Goes Challenge

On this first card, I stamped directly on the card base the 2 pattern stamps from the Valentine Background Builder using 2 shades of pinks: Memento Dew Drop Angle Pink and Rose Bud.

Then I stamped the sentiment from Love Languages with Memento Tuxedo Black, and then stamped the heart arrow with Memento Dew Drop London Fog and Rhubarb Stalk. I added the sentiment strip on the card with adhesive glue.

I finished the card with Doodlebug pink twine and some white peal gems.

And for the second card, I created the watercolor background first. I added randomly some pink wash watercolored paint on a watercolor paper. Then I sprayed some water, and dabbed it off with paper towel for some splatter texture on it. I dried the watercolor panel with craft heater.

Next, I stamped the heart pattern stamp from Valentine Background Builder with TE Cherry Ink Pad. Then I tore the edges to create a square shape. I added on the card with adhesive glue.

I heat embossed one of the sentiments from Scriptures of Love with extra fine white embossing powder, cut it with circle die ad added on top of the watercolor panel with adhesive glue.

I finished this card with some Doodlebug red twine and white pearl gems, too.

I hope these cards can give you some inspirations to create some cards to spread the love with others 🙂

THANK YOU so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a wonderful day and YOU ARE LOVED!

Hello Friend CAS Card

Graciellie Design

Hello everyone… Today I have a friendship themed card that I would love to share with you. It is a clea-and simple card that is very easy to make 🙂

Graciellie Desing Hello Friend CAS Card - Living My Given Life

I created this Hello Friend card using Pink & Blue Watercolored Digital Papers and Friends Like You Digital Stamp from Graciellie Design.

I printed the digital paper on white cardstock and trimmed it down to fit on the front of the top folded card. I added some gold foil at the center of the flowers and some gold dots on the paper using Foil Pen and DecoFoil Gold. Then I added it on the card.

I printed the sentiment on another white cardstock and trimmed it down into sentiment strip. I added it on the card with adhesive.

I finished this card by wrapping it with natural twine ribbon.

This card I sent to a swap friend from January Card Chain Challenge. If you like making cards and also like to send it out, then this challenge is perfect for you. You still have time to sign up for the February Card Chain Challenge that is open until February 6th. To know more details how you can join and play along, you can go here to read it all about this challenge.

Bridge Card With Gnome Is Where The Heart Is

Joy Clair

I am back with a fun fold card called Bridge Card using the new released stamp set, Gnome Is Where The Heart Is. The images and sentiments from this set are super adorable!

I have been looking for some fun fold card ideas and I found several tutorials on Pinterest and YouTube. You can simply search using the word Bridge Card and you’ll find many results that you can choose from.

This video tutorial is one of the tutorials I found, if you would like to check. And My card is 5.5″ x 4.25″ and fits in a regular A2 envelope when it is fold flat. I used watercolor paper for my card. You can use regular or heavy weight cardstocks, too.

Bridge Card With Gnome Is Where The Heart Is

I share the full details and steps how I created my card on Joy Clair Blog today. I hope you all can visit me there 🙂

Precious Remembrance Shop Daily Thoughts Bits and Pieces CAS Card

Lately, I love cooperate some stitching on my card as one way of adding texture or embellish the card 🙂 As you can see on this card, I stacked the tag and word strip together using little adhesive and hand-stitched them together. DO NOT USE lots of glue…or your needle and thread will pull them out as you stitch.

After done stitching them together, I added them directly on the card with liquid adhesive.

Precious Remembrance Shop Daily Thoughts Bits and Pieces CAS Card

I added some of the stars on the card that come in the set using liquid adhesive and 3D foam tape. I also added some clear gems for extra bling to the card 🙂

I added some soft white shadow around the edges of the card using Brilliance Moonlight White Archival Pigment Ink Pad and make up sponge.

And the card is done… I hope you all enjoy it and be inspired.

Daily Thoughts Mixed Media Card

Precious Remembrance New Stamp Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello everyone… Happy Saturday and Welcome to Precious Remembrance New Stamp Release Blog Hop and Giveaway. It is their first new release of this year and we are so glad that you are here to celebrate!

We are showcasing the the new stamp set, Daily Thoughts on our projects for this blog hop. It is a fun and fabulous stamp set to create with. It is full with retro look images, hand-lettering and positive vibe sentiments:

Daily Thoughts - Stamp Set

And for this blog hop project, I created a mixed media card using this Daily Thoughts Stamp Set. First time I saw the cassette tape image, it reminded of my Junior High School year! Yes… I grew up with cassette tapes! LOL! 😀 😀 😀

Precious Remembrance Shop New Stamp Blog Hop and Giveaway - Daily Thoughts Mixed Media Card

First I created the background. On a black heavy cardtock, I stamped it using white acrylic paint and plastic bubble wrap. When the paint dried, I used a Distresser Tool to distress the edges of the page.

Next, I sprayed some homemade gold paint spray on a white cardtock, dried with craft heater, and cut it with one of the Rectangles Dies.

I added both background panels on a side-folded white card with strong liquid adhesive.

Precious Remembrance Shop New Stamp Blog Hop and Giveaway - Daily Thoughts Mixed Media Card

On a watercolor paper, I added the inks from Kaleidacolor Bouquet Ink Pad using brayer tool. First, I roll the brayer on the ink pad several times to make sure it pick up the inks, and then I sprayed it with the Ink Potion No.9 spray, and rolled it on the cardstock. And the magic happened! I love the distress and watercolor paper texture show up on this panel after the inking process.

I dried the inked cardstock with craft heater. And after that using my Mini MISTI, I stamped the Cassette image on in with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad. I stamped it several times to get a crisp image. Next, I fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors. I added on the card with 3D foam tape for an extra dimension.

For the sentiments, I stamped them on a white cardstock with London Fog Memento Dew Drop Ink Pad. Cut them down into paper strips, and added them on the paper with strong liquid adhesive.

I finished this card with some triangle metal studs I had in my stash. And my mixed media card is done!
