Love You More Square Flip-it

 I've been using my Sizzix Flip-its dies a lot lately and since they were out on my stamping table I decided to use them once again.  This is another weekly card for the Use It 2015 Challenge at Splitocoaststampers.

This is the front of the card and below is the inside.  Then I will tell you more about this card.

I added an extended panel to this card, although in this photo the extra panel is tucked behind on the right side, for ease of taking a photo.   Here are some specifics about this card:

Stamps:  Wplus9: Love You More
Paper:  card stock: PTI white, SU: Real Red, patterned paper source is unknown
Ink:  Versafine
Misc:  Sizzix Square Flip-its die, musical note stickers from Jolee's Boutique, heart rhinestones from  Dollar Tree

Love You More

I joined in on the Use It 2015 Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers .  We are a group of stampers who have challenged ourselves to use stamps that have never seen ink or stamps that haven't seen ink in a very long time.  Some of us are also challenging ourselves to use other items from our stash that have been long neglected.  Many of us are taking a stamp set or more a week and making X amount of cards with the set.  Each person sets their own goals and we have a special section in the SCS gallery to upload our cards.  I got lost and am starting late so I'm jumping in with the cards I'm showing for the next few days.  Let's take a look at the card and then I'll give some specifics.

 I used a sketch from OWH for this card. (I love their sketches, as they give exact measurements which makes it so easy to quickly put a card together!)  The main image on this card was stamped on a coin envelope, which just happens to be the perfect size for a gift card!  Here is what I used for this card:

Stamps: Wplus9: Love You More
Paper:  card stock: SU: Taken With Teal and Real Red; patterned paper: Jillibean-Soup
Ink: Versafine: black
Misc:  coin envelope, heart rhinestones from The Dollar Tree

Pretty in Pink and Gray

Here are the last two cards made from The Stamps of Life December card kit.  These two cards are my favorites.  I love the pretty pink card stock that was included in the kit and also the pretty gray and white patterned papers.  And the embellishments are fabulous!  I so wanted to hoard them all, but I forced myself to use a few and I think they look perfect on these cards!

I'm going to enter this card in the Come and Get It Challenge, which is to use ribbon or bows.

My Guest Designer Gig for...

...Challenge #26 for Sisterhood of Snarky StampersWoohoo!

 (Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers: Our Motto: Snark if necessary, but not necessarily snarky!)

For their First Anniversary challenge it's Snarker's Choice!  Pick one of their past challenges and make a new card or project using it.  I chose Challenge #4;  F is for...Fancy Folds!  I made a tri-shutter card with the help of a Sizzix Bigz Pro die.  I also got some help from a paper pad by Recollections called "Not Too Serious" for some snarky fun!  Patterned papers from a Pebbles pad called Birthday Wishes provided the bright happy colors.  And finally 3D shaker stickers are the frosting on the cake, so to speak!  Check it out!

Thanks for looking and please join us at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for Challenge #26!

Lots of Love

I have three more cards that I made using The Stamps of Life December Card Kit to share with you. 

 The sequins and flower topped pins were not part of the kit, but I thought they worked perfectly on this card!

The gray XOXO is adhered directly to the paper, the pink one has one layer of foam tape and the red has two layers of foam tape.

I love the little die cut keys tied to the heart locket.  Both of these die cuts are from the die set "heartlocket2love" from TSOL.

Spirograph or Doily?

One of the patterned papers in The Stamps of Life "lovestory4kitclub" reminds me of a Spirograph design or maybe a doily!  I used this patterned paper on these two cards:

This card features die cuts from the two sets of dies that came in the kit.  One is the "love" die with a coordinating shadow die.  The other is the heart button dies. I cut each size three times and glued them together.  I then put glossy accents on the top, so they would resemble real buttons.  i used black and white twine from a previous kit to tie a bow in the button holes.

 I used punches to cut out the patterned circles and layers. I used glossy accents on the little red hearts to give them some shine and dimension.

Steampunk Fairy

 I stopped by the Come and Get It Challenges  blog to check out their current challenge: Get Your Steam Punk On! and decided to join in!  My YT friend Kristina, who has a blog called CraftyPaws and a You Tube channel located here, offers up her hand drawn digis for free once a week.  I have saved many of them to my computer, so I went to check out what I had.  I chose to use her "Steampunk Fairy" for my card.

This card folded measures 4 7/8 x 6 1/8.  I used some silver and gun metal metallic papers for layering, along with Cajun Craze, a SU color.  The image was colored with Copics and Glossy Accents was used on the boots, bodice and sleeves.  I embellished the wings embellished with a silver Sharpie, clear glitter gel pen, and metal dots.  The cogs were punched using a retired SU punch and there is also a metal piece from a Tim Holtz package of steam punk parts.  Speaking of Tim Holtz, I used his steampunk gears embossing folder on the darker metallic layer.

i'm also going to enter this card into the challenge at Pile It On.
