Dear Santa Card with SinCity Stamps

Dear Santa…… Don’t you love my stockings that I have stamped and colored using my SinCity Christmas Stamp Set. I began by layering green and brown card stock that I distress using my Tim Holtz distress tool and placing them on a white card base using my Xyron Tape Runner.
Stamp and color three sets of stockings using your favorite markers…I used Copic Markers.  Once colored…fussy cut and layer them together using pop dots and place on card front using your Xyron Tape Runner.
Add a couple of clothespins to the front of the card front to make it look like the Christmas Stockings are hanging from the string. Add a small red twine bow to each stocking along with a “Dear Santa” sentiment that I cut from the paper collection. I hope you check out my Christmas Stamp Set from SinCity Stamps as well as other products in the store. Hugs Pammejo

Believe in the Magic of Christmas!!!!

It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving isn’t til Thursday but with the Christmas music playing in all of the store, holiday decorations everywhere you go and seeing so many post sharing Christmas Cards it just gets you in the mood to make a few Christmas Cards and decorations yourself. So I pulled out my SinCity Stamps – Christmas Collection and made a card using the Snowman Snow Globe Stamp.
 I began by stamping the image onto white card stock using Black Memento Ink and coloring it in with Copic Markers, fussy cut it out, inked the edges with brown ink and placed it to one side….
 because I first had to layer my white card base.  I began with embossing a piece of blue card stock with a Snowflake Embossing Folder, added it to the top of the card front, added a piece of pattern paper to the bottom. Using a journal block from the collection I stamped  “Believe in the Magic of Christmas” sentiment from the same set with black Memento ink.  Placing the sentiment  to the front of my card and adding a brown strip of paper along with some blue gemstones.  Once I had it in place I placed my Snowman Globe image on top using pop dots. 
I continued the same theme on the inside of my card to give it a finished look. I hope you enjoyed my first Christmas Card and I am sure there will be more to come. Please check out the SinCity Store to see all the products that are available and of course check out my Christmas Collection Stamp Set. Hugs Pammejo

Rose Thank You Card with Craftwell and Core’dinations

I love making Thank You Cards…I feel we all need to remember to send thank you cards out more often, it is always nice to receive something pretty in the mail when you want to say thanks to someone. 
And the gorgeous Core’dinations ColorCore Nostalgia Cardstock makes it so easy to make multiples of any card especially when you are using Teresa Collins large embossing folders.
I cut my pieces from 3 different pieces of the shades of purple from the pad and did a border punch on the lightest of the paper…
 Layered them all at once onto the Damask Embossing Folder….
Running them through the eBosser at one time, how cool is that….
 And there you have it, all beautifully embossed, all at once….like I said super easy to make multiples of the thank you card.
 Layer the pieces on to your card base….

I added a pretty rose that I colored in using my Copic Markers to the center of my card, along with some stick pins, ribbon and sentiment to the front to finish my Rose Thank You Card with. Hugs Pammejo

Supplies:
Copic Marker
Stick Pins
Seam Binding

Cardabilities Sketch #102 – Learn, Live, Hope for Today Card using SinCity Stamps and WRMK

Today there is Sketch #102 on Carabilities and it is fabulous….I just love Karan by I Want This”>Gerber fabulous sketches…so versatile and so easy to implement on your cards or other projects.

So here is the sketch….and my take on it.  I started by using a 4 1/2″ card white Card base that I added a piece of diagonal stripe paper from WeR Memory Keepers Notable Collection to the top.

I embossed a piece of white card stock using Couture Creations Vintage Girl Embossing Folder twice. One for the card front the other to cut the center out of for a mask when I applied my Broken China Distress Ink over the top of the embossing. (This will keep the oval white so you will be able to stamp your image). stamp the Daisy Bouquet from the Sin City Stamps Memories Set with Black Memento ink twice, once directly on to the oval the second on to a piece of white scrap paper, color using your favorite markers, fussy cut out two of the daisies from the scrap paper and apply to the top of the colored daisies on the oval, this will give you dimension. Place on card base with pop dots.

Stamp the sentiment from the Sin City Stamps Memories Set with Black ink and place it on the card front with pop dots. Add leaves, bow and butter fly that you have made to the top. The butterfly is stamped twice and fussy cut, colored and layer to make it look like it is flying. 

On the inside of the card I place a stamped honeycomb piece to the top of a piece of the diagonal Notable Paper. Love to finish the inside of my cards. So make sure to check out the challenge on the Carabilites site and link up your projects using Sketch 102. Hugs Pammejo

Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #9 with World Win Papers and Stencil Girls

Challenge #9 Fold It is all about Folds…. all you need to do is use some sort of “fun fold” on your project. You can make a fun fold card, a pop-up card, an explosion box, or other type of project that makes use of folded cardstock or paper. You can share some folding techniques that are perfect for scrapbook layouts or mixed media pieces. Create a mini album with a folded binding. Fold some ribbon to make pleats.. so lets de-hoard those supplies and show us your folds….paper folds that is! Can’t wait to see what you create for Challenge #9. Here is my Hello Friend Card using folds….

I made my card by first folding a piece of 8 1/2″ x 11″ Ultimate Cream Card Stock from World Win Papers, cutting it to 7 1/2″ when I had the paper folded. Once I had my card folded and cut to size, I covered the front with some of the pretty pink paper from Botanical Tea Collection, folded the front over to form a triangle and adding a piece of the green paper from the collection to the top….carefully punching your triangle with the scallop punch.

Punched a circle from the World Win Ultimate Cream Card Stock using my 3 1/2″ circle punch, using my Spun Sugar Distress Ink and Stencil Girl Stencil distress the stencil and placed it on the front of my card. I used one of my sentiments from my Memories Stamp Set from SinCity Stamps on my cards circle I had prepared. I added swirly brown twine and fussy cut images from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea papers to decorate the front of my card with.

 On the right fold I placed some more of the beautiful paper and a journal block…

Along with some of the flags from the Botanical Embellish Die Cut sheet and some fussy cut flowers I rolled to give them dimension. 

Using Stencil Girls Stencil, Spun Sugar Distress Ink and an applicator I created the inside of my card. Once I had the depth I wanted with the ink I added my scallop border and journal blog…journal block are so great to write you messages on and so pretty also.

I place a small paper clip to the right side to hold the card together. I hope you are inspired by my folded project and I would encourage you to check out World Win Papers along with Stencil Girls to be inspired by their fabulous projects and don’t forget to check out our amazing Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog Design Team.

Thanks Card with Couture Creation

My post today will be my last post as a design team member for Couture Creations, though I will have an opportunity later on in the next term to do a guest spot.  I want to say thank you for giving me an opportunity to make lovely projects using Couture Creations products and that they were shared on the Couture Creations Blog as well as on other medias and of course my blog. I remember my first post where I declared their genius over the slit in the center of the embossing folder and I can still say with a happy heart I still think it is a genius idea and love it. I love the depth that the folders give each time I use them, so today I want to share the Loren Embossing Folder….

I started by first running my yellow gingham printed paper through my die cut machine using the Loren Embossing Folder.

I sanded the embossed paper lightly with my Couture Creations Sanding Block and then placed it on my card front with Double Sided Tape.

Stamping my Thanks imagine onto my file card before placing it to the front of my card using Couture Creations Foam Mounting Tape. I added a brown twine string around the top of my file card and placed my black card stock key that I cut out of using the Key to My Heart Die from Couture Creations.

I hope you enjoyed my Thanks Card and look forward to seeing what the new team will be creating to inspire with. Hugs Pammejo

Happy Birthday Card with SinCity Stamps

I know you thought I left the team but as a designer of stamps, chipboard, stencils, and mask for SinCity Stamps I have been asked to do some guest spots….so today I would like to share with you my Happy Birthday Card….

Do you ever wish you had the perfect background for your card … well today I am gong to share with you how to make one….I started with the Natural Beauty Stamp Set, stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped it on a scrap piece of paper prior to stamping on my white card base….this will give a muted look to the image. 

Re-stamp on the white card stock with the Natural Beauty flower…this time don’t stamp on the scrap paper but right on to the white card stock so the images will be darker.

 I colored the background and flowers in using my Copic Markers…..

Make sure to stamp one extra Natural Beauty Flower on scrap paper, color it in with markers and fussy cut out….

 Place the fussy cut flower on to the top of you finished card base that has been stamped with the Happy Birthday image from my Fall Collection 2 Stamp Set. 

I hope you will try making your own backgrounds…remember you can use any markers or watercoloring pencils to color SinCity Stamp images in. Make sure to check out the SinCity Stamps Store and check out the stamps, stencils, chipboard, etc. Don’t forget the SinCity Stamps Blog for fabulous inspiration from the new Design Team Hugs Pammejjo

Angelic Hearts Gift Card Holder with SinCity Stamps and Altered Pages

It is so hard for me to think that today is the last post I will be making as part of the SinCity Stamps Design Team but am SUPER EXCITED to share that I will be a regular Guest Designer on the blog.  I will be sharing not only my chipboard, stamps, die cuts, stencils, etc that I design for the SinCity Stamps but also will continue to support Donna and the team anyway I can…. Today I am sharing with you a sweet Angelic Heart Gift Card Holder that I made using the Angelic Heart Collage Sheet from Altered Pages and SinCity Stamps Natural Beauty Stamp Set.

I started by stamping multiple flower images on to a piece of white card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink…..

Spraying with Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise Spray….allow it to dry completely….

Once dry fussy cut the flowers out, making sure to save two of the stamped and sprayed images….

Fussy cut out one of the heart images from the Altered Pages Angelic Hearts Collage Sheets….trace around it on to a piece of white card stock and fussy cut it out also, (make a small hole at the bottom of the white heart so you will be able to hang your baubles from)….it will become the back of your project….

Taking your Natural Beauty flowers that you have fussy cut out….adhere them to the back of the Angelic Heart Collage piece….once that is done…adhere the white piece you have fussy cut out and adhere over the back to cover up all the flower but making sure not to adhere the top because you want to form a pocket for your gift card and ribbon to go into.  Add the ribbon to the inside of the top part of heart.

Fussy cut out the last two flower images from the previously stamped and sprayed paper, layer with a pop dot and add to the top of a scallop circle….Place on top of the Heart Angelic Gift Card Holder and add a bit of Gold Stickles to the center, some gemstones to the front of the Angelic Heart and a few baubles to the bottom of the Angelic Heart. I hope you have enjoyed my gift idea and try making some for yourself….Please check out the SinCity Stamps and Alterered Pages, along with the blogs…you will excited to see what the designers have been making.

Boo Card with SinCity Hallloween Collection Stamp Set

Hard to believe Halloween is this week, how the year has flew by but while there is still time I want to share with you my Boo Card using my Halloween Stamp Set from SinCity Stamps. I used Authentique paper to create my card base and double stamped my ghost twice so I could layer the center ghost on the top of the trio to give it more dimension.

Once I had the single ghost layered on to the trio with pop dots, I stamped the Boo three times onto a 2″ circle using black ink and placed it on a 2 1/2″ circle, added the ghost and adhered it to the top of my card so the flag banner was just under the circles. I love gemstones and ribbon…so I had to add a few to my card to make it complete. I hope you take time to visit SinCity Stamps, check out my Halloween and Christmas Stamps, I think they are pretty amazing. Hugs Pammejo
