The Project Bin

Today I am sharing a fun card I made for The Project Bin using one of their new stamp sets called "Birthday Girl".  I love all the fun sentiments on this stamp set.
I started this card with a black card base.  I then cut out 4 miscellaneous pieces of designer paper that measured 2" x 2 5/8".  I then folded the corner on each piece and adhered them to the black card base.  I then wrapped the orange ribbon around the center of the card.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and cut it out using a circle die.  I pop dotted it on the center of the card.  I had a candle punch that worked perfect for this card.

Remember the May special over at The Project Bin.  If you order $75 of merchandise, you will receive "Classic Man" stamp (a $14 value) for free.

PIP Challenges

Time again for another card for PIP Challenges.  We are so lucky this week because it is being sponsored by Bugaboo stamps which is an all time favorite of mine for digital stamps.
The stamp I am using for my card today is the 4 block tulip square.  
I printed off the image on my printer and sized it to fit on this card.  I then colored the image with my copic markers and cut the squares out.  I then put them on a black cardstock square.  I love how this turned out. 

Thanks to Bugaboo for these great images to work with.

The Project Bin

My project today covered 2 different obligations.  The Project Bin has a new stamp set called Birthday Girl which can be used several different ways. 
When assembling this card I decided to make it for our Crafters of Faith group on Splitcoast Stampers.  Liz was our hostess this month and she chose 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 "We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;  persecuted, but not abondoned, struck down, but not destroyed" as her scripture of choice.  Liz challenged us to try the Faux Pressed Flower that can be found on SCS under this tutorial.

I started by stamping the sentiment on white cardstock and cut it out using a half circle die.  I then adhered it to the card base.  I then glued the flowers in place and then put it through an embossing folder.  I just love how this turned out.  Such fun.

The Project Bin is having a May special!  If you order $75 of merchandise, you will receive Classic Man which is a $14 value for free! Be sure and check it out.

Today I am a little late in getting my card out for The Project Bin.  For my card today I used the new stamp set called Love Your Shellfie
I colored this adorable image with my copic markers and then used a few dies to highlight it.  I just love this new stamp set.  Be sure and check out the Project Bin for this new addition to their collection.

PIP Challenge #1917

This week at Pammie's Inky Pinkies our sponsor is Newton's Nook which is one of my favorite stamp companies.  I'm sure you see a lot of their stamps on my blog.  We are also going with a Clean and Simple theme this week.
For my card I decided to use Newton's Birdbath as my stamp for my creation.  I started by stamping the image in the corner of my card and colored it with my copic markers.  I then stamped the image on masking paper and cut it out and placed it over the image.  I then taped off about 3/4" on the right side and bottom.  I then used distress oxide and sponged over the masked image.  I pulled the mask off and this beautiful image came out.  The sentiment was part of the stamp set.

Challenge Your Stash

Time again for another challenge from our group in Splitcoaststampers.  The challenge this month came from Jen and what a fun challenge it was.  We were to use two of her favorite things which were orange and buttons.  Well I think my card covers both.
I started by adhered the orange plaid paper to the front of my card and then cut out the heart in the center.  I cut another heart out using just plain white cardstock to use as a stencil for the inside of my card.  I stenciled the heart using Distress Oxide.  I then used glue dots to adhere all the buttons to the inside of the card.  I added the sentiment to the front and the 2 buttons at the bottom.

Thanks Jen for a great challenge.

The Project Bin

Today I am posting another card that I made using the Spencer's Stamp Set.  In honor of autism month The Project Bin is offering this stamp set free for orders over $60 or if you want to purchase it, it is only $5 this month.
I loved making this card.  I started out by sponging a sky background on the inside of the card using a cloud stencil.  I then adhered the green background to the front of the card and cut a circle out.  I also cut a scalloped circle out of the red cardstock and used the same circle die to cut the center out to match the circle on the card.  I stamped the heart from Spencer's Stamp set and colored it with my copic markers.  I then used the heart die from "In My Heart" stamp set to cut the hearts out.  I then took some fishing line and taped it to the center of the cut out circle.  I glued a heart on each side.  I also used the sentiment from Spencer's Stamp set.

Before putting the card in the envelope, you twist the heart all around several times.  That way when someone opens the card, the heart will spin and you have beautiful hearts on both sides.
