F is for Friends…who are troublemakers!

| card making, Sincerely,Rina, Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers

Hi Friends,

I’m back to share a project I created for the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers #168- F is for Friends.

I am trying to use up all my scraps so this is a slim and small card. The card size is 3 1/2 x 5 1/2.

The paper collection is one of my own, Once Upon A Fairy, it’s one of my faves. The image of the women with groceries is from the Hungry Jpeg.

The sentiment I used is from My Favorite Things- Sassy Pants Best Friends clear stamp set.

I’m loving this little card. I left the inside completely blank and I used a ton of pop dots to create layers and pop out the images and background.

You can find this challenge and all there upcoming challenges at the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers website.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project!

Alice in Wonderland Pop Up Card

| card making, Graphic 45, greeting cards, Pop Up Card

Hey Friends Hey!

I hope your Saturday is going great! I have a fun, fun project to share with you today. I am guest designing for the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers for the E is for Evil challenge.

Before I get to my project, I just have to comment on how much I laughed at this image. Every time I see it, I just laugh. LOL

Okay, okay. Now on to the project. I really like the Evil Queens for some reason, sometimes I think they are just misunderstood. You know, like in the musical, “Wicked”; the wicked witch is really the good gal.

For my project, my evil character is the Queen of Hearts. She’s on the inside of this super fun Alice in Wonderland card.

The paper I used is Graphic 45- Halloween in Wonderland. I love this paper and have been saving it for quite awhile.

And here is my fun pop up on the inside. I’ve been wanting to make a pop up for a mini album for awhile but decided to just jump into it for this challenge.

I love this card! I hope you enjoyed it to.

Make sure to play along over at the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers. You can find all of their fun, snarky challenges here.

Ocean Dreams

| card making, craft life, Crafting from the Heart

Hi Friends!

I have another card share for you today. I busted out my Santoro Gorjuss stamps and used the By Air Mail Stamp of this beautiful mermaid to create an under the sea card.

I’ve had my Gorjuss stamps for awhile and this was the first time I took one out and actually used it. They are so pretty I almost don’t want to open them!

The card is 6 x 6 but I added additional dimension by adding a 2 additional layers on the top.

I also added some seaweed, tulle and ribbon thread for embellishment. Lastly I used glossy accents and stickles & sequins to add a ton of shimmer.

I think I’m going to mail this card to my niece for her birthday but haven’t finished her memory gift yet so it’ll be a little bit before she sees it.

I also linked up this card to the Crafting from the Heart/ Anything Goes Challenge. There’s still time for you to enter and you can find that blog here:

Instant Smile In A Cup: Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop

| card making, Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, craft life, crafty gal, greeting cards

Happy Friday!

I have a fun project share for you today which is also my card for the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop.

The theme was Spring/Summer and although the lady in the image I used is wearing a sweater I am positive it’s probably because its cold inside the coffee shop.

I created a 6 x 6 card with a gorgeous image from Krista Smith. You may love Krista’s designs as much as I do and remember her designs as Saturated Canary. The image I used is the Once A Month Image April 2019. You can find it in her Etsy Shop: Shop Krista Smith here.

The paper collection I used is from my very own collection, Magic Bean and you can find that here.

I colored up the image with my Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. I wanted the card to be dimensional so added a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and 5 x 5 layers on pop dots and then an oval cutout for the image with more pop dots.

The sentiment stamp I used “Instant Smile in a cup” is from the Greeting Farm, Mini-Remix Brewtiful.

Lastly, I embellished the card with some gold sequins and a tulle bow and brown cord bow.

I really enjoyed coloring up this image and making a card with less embellishments but more dimension with all the layers.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
