Cupcake Inspiration!

>> Monday, January 26, 2015

Happy Monday!  This week DRS Designs is a proud sponsor of Cupcake Inspirations. Here's the inspiration photo.

And here's the card I created.

I started by die cutting the lacy curve with a nestie, then I added the gingham ribbon, button and bakers twine. Inside I added a red panel so the red would show through the die cut part.  The Sweet Valentine Sentiment was stamped in black ink, die cut and then some real red ink was sponged around the edges. The cupcake image was stamped with Memento Black ink on white cs, colored with Copics and fussy cut. I stamped the image a second time on white CS and stamped the Polka dot Background on the cupcake liner, then fussy cut it out, added it to the cupcake image and attached it to the red heart.

Hope you can join in the challenge at Cupcake Inspiration. You could win some awesome new stamps!  You can also join in this week's challenge here at DRS Designs to use the word love and or hearts on your card. So there's two ways to win some new stamps this week from DRS Designs. Looking forward to seeing what you create!

Thanks for stopping by.


Pink and Red

>> Sunday, January 25, 2015

Today I have a Valentine that uses masking.

I started by stamping the Interlocking Hearts  then covering with a mask. Then stamping the Love is Patient Greeting over the top. I removed the mask and colored the hearts with Copic Markers. For the background I stamped the Polka Dot Background with white ink on pink card-stock. A Spellbinder die was used to cut the falling hearts. This was layered on to red card-stock then a white card.

Have a Wonderful Day,



Grow in Love

>> Saturday, January 24, 2015

Good morning everyone!!  Hope you are having a wonderful Saturday!
I am teaching a class today with DRS Design stamps...
lots of hearts going on, so fun!
For this card, I have used DRS stamps: 976H Valentine Tree, and 257D Sweet Valentine
The heart embossing folder is Cuttlebug and the decorative dies are Sue Wilson.  The label die (for the sentiment) is Taylored Expression.  I also use a very light pink ribbon and some light pink dye ink for sponging.  The dies have dimensionals under them to pop them up a bit.
Ok, there isn't a lot more time to make Valentine's cards so you better hop to! Especially if you are making cards for teachers and maybe students.
My hope is to grow in love the way this tree is growing hearts of love. It take a little pruning and maybe some polishing of the "fruit" but I'm working on it!
The fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-control.
Have a fun day today!!


Full of Love

>> Friday, January 23, 2015

Hi everyone, My card today is a very simple one.

I stamped the Valentine's Full of Love 

with Memento Lilac Posies.

Then I used some fo the Spellbinder dies that I got for Christmas and white card-stock and cut the three layers. The finished card is a 5x5 square.

Have a Wonderful Day,

Pet Sympathy

>> Wednesday, January 21, 2015


Last week I was in need of a pet sympathy card and when I checked my stash I was surprised to find it empty.  Here's what I came up with on the fly...

Using our  Dog Bone stamp and some black dye ink I randomly stamped a piece of white card stock.  After coloring I sponged on a little brown ink along the edges.  I stamped the Loss of Pet Sympathy Greeting using vintage green ink and cut it out using a nestie grommet tag.  The green layer was simply another nestie that I traced the insideof using a white pen.  After adhering them together I attached some twine to both sides and assembled it all on a folded green card.

Thanks for stopping by!


Punny Valentine

>> Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Hi Everyone,
I love puns.  Well, let me rephrase that.  I love puns on cards.  Puns told to you by a weird, creepy uncle, where you have to chuckle to be polite, eh, not so much.  Thank goodness we don't have any of the latter here.  Only cards made with super cute stamps :)
I used the Leonard Pig's Bath Time Buddies stamp and the Giant Chocolate Chip (I'm pretending it's a Hershey's Kiss) stamp to illustrate the Hogs & Kisses Greeting.  After stamping and coloring, I stamped the Splatter Background in a light peach all over the main panel.  That helped match it to the marbleized card base in the same color.  I nipped the corners with a Fiskars corner punch and added the sentiment with some dimensional tape.
Here's hoping that you are smiling!
