Kicking things off is the card I made using July’s Glorious Globes set. One of the things I have really loved about Lizzie’s Globes series is all the nature she incorporates into many of the globes. From flowers to leaves, they always make me happy to look at and play with.

This month’s may be one of my favorite sets so far and I had a ton of fun creating this card that didn’t even use them in the intended globe format.

For my next project I really took the Ombre idea to heart. I used three different ink colors and blended them together on my stamp before pressing to the paper. The repeat stamping made for a fun background/sentiment and I used the Pierced Feature Frames dies in Melon Berry to bring in more color from the sentiments.

I created a purely clean and simple card for this set and I tried to make the kitty peeking out look just like mine. I have a kitten named Gypsy and she’s a torti so I mixed blacks, browns, and tans to create the color.

I used the Shape Shifters square die to cut 4 times right next to each other and then turned it on it’s side to make a diamond. I layered it over top of some of the new Bitty Big Berry Sorbet and used some black paint splatters to compliment the sentiment.

I created an ombre 3d egg using different colored purple cardstocks and stamped each one differently. I sewed them together using black and white twine and used a Delicate Detail die to accent the top and bottom. It sort of reminded me of one of those really ornate eggs you see at Easter time. πŸ™‚

I started by layering two of the border dies off set in Stormy Sea and Dark Indigo. The sentiment is embossed in black on polka dotted vellum and attached to the card using a mini clothespin.

Thinking of You Pocket Tag

by Stephanie Gold for Lil Inker Designs Tribal Print Anytime Tag Die Greetings and Salutations - Golden Simplicity

Helllllloooooooo my dears! I have what I believe is the cutest pocket tag to share with you today! I made this sweet little thing for my babygirl. She LOVES making little envelopes and “mailboxes” and leaving special drawings and notes for each other. So I put together this tag and added a little pocket to it, to hold a secret note for her.

I started with the Tribal Chic Pattern Papers and one of the Anytime Tag 2 Dies and cut out 2 of them. I sliced one in half and adhered it to a couple pieces of kraft cardstock that are acting as accordion buffers between my two tags. once I was ready to put them together, I added little mini staples as extra embellishments. The sentiment at the top is from the Greetings and Salutations stamp set. (which is on sale right now!!)

Inside the handmade pocket I slipped a little piece of kraft cardstock that I stamped with hearts and a little mini sentiment. Just something extra and fun for her.

Cute right???! You may have noticed my stamping slip up on one of the hearts!! Luckily my sweet daughter is gracious in my stamping mistakes haha. Sometimes, I just need to let the imperfections go!! πŸ™‚

Much love to all of you this weekend! I am grateful for you all! <3

Save

With Sympathy

Hi there! I’m back with two cards that I made today focusing on condolences. I had to make these at the same time and decided to keep them similar.

image

For the first one, I embossed the sentiment in silver and used some Studio Calico pattern paper (my favorite ones!!) layered underneath the die cut frame. I embellished with a white butterfly and some gems from a past SC card kit.

For this second card I switched out the pattern paper, used different colored gems, and stamped the sentiment in smokey gray.

Making subtle changes but keeping the design the same, made these cards very quick and easy to create. The only plus side in making condolence cards for me, is hoping they put a smile on someone’s face.

Hoping you all have a WONDERFUL day!

Stephanie
