♥ ♥ ♥



 

Hello Friend Thanks a Bunch

Hello Friend, I’m so glad you stopped by today.

Because I have a beautiful but simple project to share with you.

It is the culmination of two different sources of inspiration and challenges…

  • Tic Tac Toe Challenge No: 011
  • CaSE the Catty

Where do you find your inspiration?

I often find mine by checking out the Tic Tac Toe Challenge

or

in the Stampin’ Up! catalog…it’s 234 pages of inspiration!

Hope you enjoy it!

 

Tic Tac Toe Challenge No: 011

This week I choose the elements in the center vertical row: banner, thank you and free.

 

CaSE the Catty (CTC) p. 161 of Stampin' Up! 2017-18 Annual Catalog shared by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper #stampinup

Stampin’ Up! 2017-18 Annual Catalog, page 61

This image was selected because it includes several elements that could be adapted to many different sentiments and stamp sets. I choose to focus on the green shrub, the ribbon and wood tones.

 

So….are you ready to see the results?

For Tic Tac Toe Challenge No: 011 and CaSE the Catty p. 61. Featuring Hello Friend and Beautiful Bouquet stamp sets and Night of Navy Gingham ribbon. For details and instructions click through to my blog. #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #CTC #tttc011

 

Lately, I have been really loving cards like this…simple with a touch of rustic. Not sure if I am explaining myself clearly but I love the Wood Textures Designer Series Pack and the Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon combination.

And I love the wreath image from the Hello Friend stamp set.

 

Stampin' Up! Hello Friend stamp set shared by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

 

Ok seriously, I love all the images in this stamp set!

And it coordinates with the Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit! Click here to see video

Stamp Set: Hello Friend, Beautiful Bouquet and Banners for You

Paper: Night of Navy, Very Vanilla and Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (click here for Designer Series Paper Coordinating Colors)

Ink: Wild Wasabi, Basic Black Archival and Night of Navy

Accessories: Gingham Ribbon

Tools: Big Shot, Bunch of Banners Framelits (click here of Framelits Sizes)

Adhesive: SNAIL adhesive and Glue Dots

Thanks a Bunch Wreath Card
  1. Stamp wreath with Wild Wasabi ink on 5″ x 3-3/4″ Very Vanilla cardstock. Adhere to 5-1/4″ x 4″ Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, then adhere to folded 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Night of Navy card base.
  2. On scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp banner with Basic Black ink, die cut.
  3. For sentiment, use Stampin’ Write Marker to color “Thanks” portion of sentiment, stamp onto die cut banner. Clean stamp and repeat with remaining portions of sentiment. See below for TIP.
  4. Adhere ribbon with Glue Dots, Adhere banner to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Address the envelope, adhere stamp and pop in the mailbox to brighten someone’s day.

TIP: I stamped “Thanks” first, followed by “Bunch” – this helped me with spacing of the words. Lastly, I added the “a” in the middle

 



 

I’m doing this CASE the Catty sharing with my friend, Dawn Olchefske.  Be sure to check her CASE out too!

Always take the scenic route.

Eastern Medallions Sequins Shaker Card

Eastern Medallions Sequins Shaker Card

An Eastern Medallions Sequin Shaker Card was not what I planned to create when I sat down in my studio today

but

I do have to say…I think it is FABULOUS!

This weeks Tic Tac Toe Challenge board was filled with lots of options, as always.

Tic Tac Toe Challenge No. 009 shared by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #tttc009 #thankyou #easternmedallionsthinlits #lotsofsequins

 

This week I choose the elements in the top row: thank you, sequins and all things round.

I love how the sequins sparkle and twinkle when they catch the light while shaking this card.

What did I use to create this Eastern Medallions Shaker Card beauty? (scroll down for a complete supply list and links)

Stamp Set: Thankful Thoughts

Paper: Flirty Flamingo, Thick Whisper White, Window Sheet

Ink: Smoky Slate

Accessories: Iridescent Sequin, Linen Thread, Burlap Ribbon and Striped Grosgrain Ribbon

Tools: Big Shot, Eastern Medallions Thinlits, Triple Banner Punch

Adhesive: Fast Fuse, Foam Adhesive Strips, Glue Dots

It’s All in the Details:

  • Love the shimmer behind the window as the sequins dance around
  • And it was quick and easy to assemble

  3. Using Big Shot and Eastern Medallion Thinlits, die cut 3-3/4″ x 5″ Thick Whisper White cardstock. Apply Fast Fuse to edge of die cut image, adhere 3-1/2″ square of Window Sheet. Adhere Foam Adhesive Strip around cutout window area.
  4. Place ribbons in desired location, wrap Grosgrain Ribbon edges around to back and adhere with Fast Fuse. Adhere Burlap Ribbon with either Fast Fuse or Glue Dots. Wrap Linen Thread around and tie bow. Adhere sentiment banner with Foam Adhesive Strip.
  5. Pile Iridescent Sequins in middle of card-I used approximately a tablespoon. Adhere window panel over sequins. And give it a shake!
  6. Address the envelope and pop this beauty in the mail to add some sparkle to someone’s day.

For Tic Tac Toe Challenge No:008, I decided to use a stamp set that was designed to be used with the new Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit from Stampin’ UP!

I love the simplicity with a touch of elegance of this card.

I think the Gold Heat Embossing and the Linen Thread work nicely together. Don’t you agree?

Tic Tac Toe Challenge #7: Colorful Seasons

Tic Tac Toe Challenge First Timer…not to the game but to the card-making challenge.

And I love everything about it!

  • the options
  • the elements
  • the endless possibilities
  • and the inspiration of the other participants

Tic Tac Toe Challenge Number Seven Inspiration graphic. For more details, click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #tttc007

 

This week I was inspired by the top row: acetate, critter and die cut.

I’m in love with the deep rich Fresh Fig cardstock and ink combined with the Gold Foil and the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate of this card.

I have to be honest with you, I’ve had the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate on my shelf for months (probably since it was introduced in last year’s catalog) and never used it until recently.

Wow! Sure wish I had tried it earlier. Click here to see another project using this fabulous (and it really is fabulous) product.

For Tic Tac Toe Challenge No: 7. Featuring Colorful Seasons stamp set, Designer Foil Acetate and Gold Foil Dragonfly. For more details click through to my blog. #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #tttc007 #tictactoechallenge

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down to bottom for complete supply list and links)
  • Stamp Set: Colorful Season
  • Paper: Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, Goil Foil, Whisper White cardstock and Fresh Fig cardstock
  • Ink: Fresh Fig
  • Adhesive: Fast Fuse and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Tools: Big Shot, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Layering Circle Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits
  • Accessories: Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes
  • It’s All in the Details: Look at all those lovely gold details…the dragonfly, the acetate, the enamel shapes!

Life is Beautiful Dragonfly Card

  1. Stamp greeting (Colorful Seasons stamp set) with NEW In Color Fresh Fig ink on scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Die cut with Big Shot and 2-3/8″ circle (Stitched Shapes Framelits).
  2. Using Big Shot, die cut smaller dragonfly (Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies) and 2-1/2″ scalloped circle (Layering Circles Framelits) from Gold Foil Sheet. Die cut 2-5/8″circle (Layering Circles Framelits) from Fresh Fig cardstock. Adhere circles on top of one another.
  3. Adhere dragonfly and sentiment to 4″ x 5-1/4″ Fabulous Designer Foil Acetate with NEW Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the Mini Stampin Dimensionals because they fit perfectly behind the dragonfly’s head.
  4. Attach Acetate to Fresh Fig card base (4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″) with Glue Dots and Snail Adhesive strategically hidden behind dragonfly head and sentiment.
  5. Embellish with Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes.
  6. Address the envelope, adhere stamp and pop in the mailbox to brighten someone’s day.

TIP: There is a protective layer on the back of the Fabulous Designer Foil Acetate-you will want to peel it off before applying adhesive

Hope to see you for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

Always take the scenic route.
