Miss You Painted Peony Slimline

Happy Saturday peeps! I’m back with another card using some newish products from Concord & 9th. I have to say that I’m really liking the new slimline and mini slimline card sizes! It’s nice to make something other than an A2 card!

I used the Concord & 9th Painted Peonies Stamp Set and my Misti to stamp the flowers and leaves in Concord & 9th Ballet Slipper, Grapefruit, Honeysuckle, Poppy, Cranberry, Buttercup, Stardust, Sprout, Parsley, Clover and Evergreen Ink. The coordinating Concord & 9th Painted Peonies Dies are used to cut them out. I added them to a card base that is 8 1/2 by 7, scored at 3 1/2 and folded. For the greeting I choose the miss you from the Concord & 9th Big on You Stamp Set. It’s stamped in Gina K Black Amalgam Ink and cut out with the coordinating Concord & 9th Big on You Dies. I stamped the companion greeting in the same ink and trimmed it out with my Paper Trimmer. The greetings are added to the card with Foam Tape.

I decided to make a coordinating envelope so I got out my Pinkfresh Essentials Slimline Envelope Dies and some Recollections 65lb Black Paper. I really am loving making Slimline cards! It’s so nice to have a different shape to be creative with! Thanks for taking a little time out of your day to visit with me! Have a wonderful weekend!

All the Feels Foiled Butterflies

Well hello there! It’s been a minute or few years since I have posted anything to my blog. I sort of lost my Mojo after I stopped working in the retail store and I got busy with other things then the Pandemic hit. You would think that I would have taken some of the time spent in lockdown to be a little creative but the craft closet was also apparently on lockdown along with my creativity.

Recently I took some time to venture into my creative space and clean it out a little. There have also been a few new products that peaked my interest and I began purchasing crafty supplies again. I made a few things and then the other day I went over to spend some time in my friend Sue’s craft room. To call it a craft room really sells it short! There is so much stuff in there to play with it’s hard not to get inspired. That’s where I came up with this card. Hopefully it’s the start of me getting back to something that I used to love and do every day!

I started by using the Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Hot Foil Plate and some Crafter’s Companion Gold Foil along with the Gemini Hot Foil Press to foil the butterflies onto Neenah Solar White 80lb Cardstock. After running it through the Gemini Jr. I used the coordinating Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Stencil to add color to the butterflies. The inks are Ocean Breeze, Soft Lilac, Sparkling Rose and Candy Violet also from Pinkfresh. They are cut out with the coordinating one piece Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Die. My background is stamped in Pinkfresh Grassy Knoll using the Pinkfresh Diamond Tiles Cling Stamp. For the clouds I used Pinkfresh Sky Blue Ink and the Pinkfresh Cloud Builder Stencil applied with a Blending Brush. My greeting is from The Stamp Market Gorgeous Greetings Stamp Set and is stamped in Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink. I adhered the background to a top-folding card base with Tape Runner and the added the butterflies with Foam Tape. For a little more shine I added a few Pinkfresh Gold Metallic Pearls with Bearly Arts Glue.

I loved the hot foiling and the stencils made coloring the butterflies fun and simple! I also love the greeting and thought it went well with all of the butterflies. I hope that you enjoyed my card and thanks so much for taking the time to read today’s post! Have a wonderful Wednesday and I hope to be back soon with another project!

Paper Craft Crew 251

Yup, I had a nice productive day with my friend Sue yesterday! We got a lot of things done! I had a really quick dinner with my Parent’s when I got home and then headed over to see Heather. She had to go for an eye exam so I took the ride and then we hung out at her house for a bit. A little trip to Target before calling it a night and that was my day! I’ll be spending some time in front of the computer today playing catchup today! Fun! 😀

So, it’s Wednesday and time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I have to be honest, it took me a while to find something new! When you make a card a day like I do you tend to use all of your goodies as soon as you get them! I found a Pinkfresh Studio Set that I hadn’t inked up so I used it to make a super simple card! To start I stamped my greeting From the Pinkfresh Studio So Sweet Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merman onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 100lb Card Stock. The squares are stamped next in Jet Black and the outlined ones are colored in with my Copic R27 Marker. The ink spots are also stamped in Jet Black and for a little interest I adhered a few Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets over some of them with Multi-Matte Medium. That’s it! Super simple with some pops of color! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Theme Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
