Hello and good morning!

I am back again today with another gorgeous mermaid from Whimsy Stamp’s July new release collection.  This little mermaid with her super fun little fish balloons is beyond adorable!!  She is one of the adorable mermaids in the Mermaid Birthday Clear Stamp Set.  I couldn’t resist…I had to color my very first pink hair…lol

Pam_Mermaid Birthday_Pierced and Stitched Circle Dies

I stamped this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card, colored her with the following Copic Sketch Markers, and fussy cut her out.

Shellebrate2

I started with a 4″ square white card base, added a white layer that was 3 7/8″ square, and a pink layer that was 3 3/4″ square.

For the inside piece of the shaker element, I inked up a piece of white cardstock with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink, added the Shellebrate sentiment from the same stamp set, and cut it into a circle.

Shellebrate3

To create the outside circle frame, I taped two of the circle dies together with purple tape; and then while they were taped together, I cut the frame out of the starfish print paper.  I then cut two more of the circle frames out of white craft foam.   I cut one plain circle shape of clear acetate.  I taped the clear acetate to the back of the starfish frame with Scor-Tape 1/4 inch.  I used the same tape to adhere the two layers of foam tape to the back of the same piece.  Once I had the shaker bits in the center of the blue sentiment circle, (keeping still so I didn’t lose any of the pretties), I then taped it down to the actual card.

The paper is from Echo Park- Let’s Be Mermaids.

Hello again!

I was flooded with memories of my Grandma as I created with this gorgeous new release from Whimsy Stamps called Ivy Chair Rubber Cling Stamp.  Her climbing rose bushes were always gorgeous and smelled heavenly.  I was reminded how much I miss her!

I started with a cream card base that was 5 1/2 inches square.  Added a cream layer 5 3/8 inches square and then the blue dotted layer 5 1/4 inches square.  The middle band of blue/cream paper measures 3 1/2 x 5 1/4, layered with cream card stock that was die cut with the scalloped border from the Kinetic Straight Basics Die Set.  I used the largest oval from the Basic Stitched Ovals Die Set for my image, and then cut around the actual metal die to create a mat to put behind it.

Skinny Girl Cupcakes

Good morning!

Who doesn’t love a yummy cupcake…and who really wants to count the calories…lol!

These scrumptious cupcakes are from Whimsy Stamp’s July new release Calories Schmalories Clear Stamps Set. They look good enough to eat!  How tempting…

Skinny-Girl-Cupcakes

These remind me of all the delicious cupcakes I used to make for birthday parties when my girls were little.

I started with a 5×6 card base, adding layers about 1/8 smaller than the last.  The cupcakes were cut out using my Scan N’Cut and popped them up with foam tape to appear as though they were sitting on a bakery shelf.

Conie Fong – July Challenge

 

It’s your Birthday!

Hello everyone!

I am back today sharing some gorgeousness!!  Today’s project was designed with Whimsy Stamp’s new Birthday Word and Shadow Die Set and the Your Birthday Clear Stamps set.  These sets are perfect for all types of cards!  This card will be given to my mother in-law…it’s her birthday today!!

It's-Your-Birthday

It seems weird that I didn’t do any coloring on this card, but it turned out absolutely gorgeous!

It's-Your-Birthday1

I used two of the rectangle dies from the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangle Dies.  I taped the two together with Purple Tape on the backside of the dies making sure they stayed together while die-cutting the paper.  I also cut two layers out of white craft foam while the two were taped together.

It's-your-Birthday2

I cut the word die three times and glued them all together to make it look dimensional before gluing it on the frame.  I used bling for the dot in the letter I.

The paper is from my stash, and the flowers are from I Am Roses.
