My Sweet Petunia and Kitchen Sink Stamps Blog Hop!!

Hello friends!! Happy Monday and great start of our last week of September! This year is flying by, crazy ha!!  We are extremely happy to bring you another amazing collaboration blog hop between My Sweet Petunia and the Kitchen Sink Stamps!!

For this hop, I got this super cute "Teddy Bear Wishes", this is a 3 layer stamp, adorable!
I love this kind of stamps, baby projects are my favorite kind to make, they are always so cute.
My project is super easy, here are few details:
  • Start stamping your first layer in your lightest color, here I used Memento Desert Sand.
  •  Then add a layer of Memento Rich Cocoa.
  •  Finally, finish with the 3rd layer in Espresso Truffle.
  •  Stamp your sentiment, here I used one of the Creative Corners, seriously, very easy way to stamp your little sentiments. BTW, have you checked the new bar magnets? they are amazing ;)
  • I sewed a piece of White cardstock and Patterned Paper, added the sentiment and main image, bow, dew drops and baby die-cut.

And here is my card, I really love how it turned out.

  • Everyone who comments on every stop on the hop will be entered to win one of two prizes - winner's choice of an original or mini MISTI, and a $50 Gift certificate from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

Thank you!

Hello friends, Happy Saturday! Hope you are having a fun weekend. Today, I decided to stay inside (since I do yard work every weekend), my hands are a little sore, I don't know why, but I've been creating a lit bit, making fun projects for an upcoming release and just relaxing, we all need a little bit of that sometimes {wink, wink}

Anyways, I want to share a card I created using the fun products from Gina K. Designs, all the products used in this card are from the Boho Flowers Mini Kit

Here are few pictures I took with some of the steps:
  •  Adhere a piece of White cardstock behind and add stitches, then distress all edges from both panels.
  •  Stamp sentiment.
  • Add stamped images on top of a vellum piece.

Add the panel to a black card base and you are done!

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

Hello friends!! Hope you are having a fantastic day! Here in the PNW we are dealing with very unhealthy to hazardous air quality :( Hard to go outside, everything looks foggy and the smells is horrible. Praying for rain.

Anyway, I have a very "Fall-y" card for you today, by the way, have you commented on the My Sweet Petunia and Right At Home  blog hop? You still have time to comment and your name will be added, you can be a lucky a winner!! Enter HERE.

For my card I used "Fall Leaves" set, stamped them in Watercolor paper, Versamark ink and White embossing powder, then heat set, cut them out and them added Color Burst Powders! (Sepia, Yellow Ochre, Terra Verte, Tangerine).
The background was created on a Kraft 5"x 7" card, added Copper Liquid Metals , then mist the paper and voila!!
The sentiment is from "Script Greetings" set,  stamped the "thank" from thank you (I cut the clear stamp), then masked the stamp "blessed" and used one of the "s" to add it to the word, I used Jet Black Ink

Finally, I added twine and sequins, ad my card was done!

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

My Sweet Petunia and Right at Home Swap Hop

Hello friends! Welcome another fun blog hop, this time the My Sweet Petunia and Right at Home Design Team are teaming up to share with you amazing creation using products from both companies! 
And we also have amazing giveaways, we will draw 2 lucky winners from all the comments from the hop, so please leave a comment on every blog to be eligible win one of two prizes: Winner's choice of an original or mini MISTI, and a prize package from Right at Home (Sunflower stamp set, Harvest Blessings stamp set (new release) and two Distress Oxide Inks: Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint).

Deadline for comments is September 8th at noon Central, and winners will be posted on the My Sweet Petunia and  Right at Home blogs on Tuesday September 12th

If you arrive here from Maria's blog, you are in the right place, if not start at Nicole's, so you don't miss out any of the participant blog.

I have two projects for you today, I even took pictures of the process from this card (click on the pictures fro a larger version), so let's get started.
Background piece:
  • Start stamping the leaves from "Fall Leaves" set on a piece of watercolor paper, ink them up with Memento Rich Cocoa for the outlines and then the solid images with Wild Honey Distress Ink and Memento Tangelo.For the small outlines use Memento Love Letters, Memento Pistachio, Memento Dandelion.
Embossed Leaves
  • Stamp the outline leaves on a piece of watercolor paper. Apply white embossing powder and heat set.
  • After that, add little bits of Color Burst (Sepia, Yellow Ochre, Terra Verte, Tangerine), mist water. Let it air dry or speed the process with a heat gun. Cut them out or die-cut. 
  •  After that, cover all the leaves with Versamark Watermark and Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel, this will give your leaves a shiny and kinda frosty look (If you don't have UTEE, you can use clear embossing powder for a similar look)
  • Finally, stamp the sentiment from Script Greetings set on a piece of clear vellum  in Vintage Mahogany Embossing powder (Recollections), then add stitches. Adhere the card panel to a 5.5" x 5.5" white card base. Add the embossed leaves to the side. Embellish with silver thread.

This is the final card.

This second card was a lot easier and faster to make. I usually don't make OLC, but these images were calling for one {wink, wink}
Here I stamped the images ink Memento Love Letter, Memento Angel Pink, Memento Pistachio, Memento Bamboo Leaves, Memento Tangelo, Memento Dandelion, Memento Gray Flannel, Memento  Rich Cocoa, SU Coastal Cabana and Delizata Golden Glitz. Sentiment was stamped in Jet Black ink and finally added clear and blue rhinestones.

Here is the list of all the participants:

So, I have 3 projects for you today using 4 sets from this new release!

So, my first two projects are super cute! Perfect to send to your favorite Vet :), friends and family.
Here are the two sweet faces :D  Are you a paper hoarder? I used paper from EPP collection from 2011!! Oh my! This pack is one of my favorites ever and I am sad I have few pages left only.

For this card, I used the sweet Christmas dog and sentiment from Gifts of Christmas. I stamped the image on a piece of white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black using my MISTI. After that, I stamped the image once again in Versamark Watermark and added Clear embossing powder and heat set it, I stamped another image using the same technique just for the hat, colored it with Spectrum Noir markers, then added Crystal Lacquer to the white edge and white Gala Glitz, then covered the rest of the hat with Crystal Lacquer. I let it dry overnight. Create a frame using Square dies and red glitter cardstock, die-cut snowflakes in gold cardstock  and voila!!

For this card I used Christmas Kitty, pretty much did the same as the dog card, the only difference is the stamped image, over I just used Memento Tuxedo Black (no embossing)

And finally a Santa card! For this card I used Santa in Moonlight and the sentiment from Gifts of Christmas. Here I again stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and then Versamark Watermark and clear embossing powder. then covered the moon area and sponged the image with Tumble Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Inks. Then added a couple of die-cuts and stamped the sentiment in Blue ink.

Now, time to hop over to Chris' blog and check her amazing creations!

Have fun hopping!
