CC Designs Cupcake Trevor celebrates!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

 Sugarplums Cupcake Trevor and Cupcake Emma are showing off!  Bring on the candles and cake!  One of our grandson’s just turned two and he sure was good at blowing out those two candles!  Breanna used a construction theme for the party and it was so cute with brownies coming out of that digger! (or whatever that is!)  = )

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I stamped Cupcake Trevor on Hammermill Color Copy 80# Cover card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers.

I used a lot of CC Designs Cutters dies and jazzed them up with crimpers, Copics and a white gel pen.

The Sentiment is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink on the same white card-stock and punched with a circle punch… edged with Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

The cupcakes are from the new CC Designs Sweet Treat die! A very cool die, a cupcake, ice cream cone, confetti and frosting!  I love the five little circles (confetti)… stick them on with Tombow Mono Multi glue and the QK Quick Stik.  The Squiggles and Balloons are CC Designs Cutters dies also.  I crimped the cupcake papers with the “tube wringer” crimper and the strips of wavy frosting with the Quilling Creations mini crimper!  Love that thing!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Cute kid!  His hair is colored with Copic E30’s series.  I stamped the cupcake on  colored card-stock, cut them out, crimped the bottom/cupcake paper and adhered them to the completed, colored Trevor. Oh,  glued on the five dots from the Sweet Treats die!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I cut the CC Designs Candle border in yellow and green… cut the flames off the green and glued it to the yellow.  I added white gel pen to the wick.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Happy Birthday to YOU!

Sweet November Patriotic Betsy…

Rah, Rah, Rah!   It’s daytime,  so I made pinwheels instead of keeping with sparklers, for Sweet November Patriotic Pixie Betsy!  I ❤ them! I used a 5/8 inch square punch to punch the double sided pattern paper… poked a hole in the center of the square… cut up toward the hole from each corner… then folded one tip from each corner up to meet the center hole.  When I put in the teeny 1/16th in brads,  I caught those tips and kept them under the brad.

It’s June Release Tuesday Review on the All That Scraps Blog today, HERE.  If you want to see lot of fabulous designing… click over!  You won’t be disappointed!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Betsy is inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Hammermill Color Copy 80# Cover card-stock,  cut out and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Hair – E50, 30, 23, 25, 27, 29,  Skin – E0000, 000, 00, 21, Cheeks – R20 diluted with R00, Red – R24, 27, 29, 59,  Skirt – B91, 93, 95, 97, 99.

I used CC Designs Butterflies Postage set (images stamped with Pumice Stone Distress ink), It’s Your Birthday Sentiment set and Beach sentiments set (stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink).  I did use my Stamp a ma jig to position the sentiments.

The pattern paper is from K & Company. One of their little pads they make and say they’re for matting photos. I’ve had it for a couple years though… sorry… it’s a good one!  I was sure tickled to find it stashed away here!  lol  Edges all inked with Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool.  I found an Americana 12×12 paper pad from K & Company online… linked below… not the same thing but might give the older style look…

The little clouds are from the smallest Fiskars cloud punch series… so cute! (the smallest I could find says medium)  I colored them a little with some Warm gray copics…  W0, 1, 3.

The grass is CC Designs Cutters Grass border die!  oh,  I LOVE this die!  I crimped it too… love this little crimper! hehe… sorry gals…JK! lol   I gave it some inking with Peeled Paint Distress ink and the Ink Blending tool.

I used the Perfect Layers 1/8th in. tool to cut the red layer.

Card base is 5 x 7, cut from an 8.5 x 11 sheet of kraft card-stock.  Scored with a Martha Stewart score board.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

CC Designs Tuesday June review…get your goggles out!

Are you ready for the fun-est card ever??? ok,  I do get excited now and then! hahaha

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Meet… Snorkeling Beatrice!!!
Is she cute or what!  Lovin’ her curly underwater hair!
I had to place her in an underwater-ish scene… out came the magnetic QK holder full of CCD Cutters dies.
I used…
Shell and Starfish dies (cuts and embosses in one pass)
Bubble Border die (to die for) pun intended = )
Bubbles die (3 circle frames, I used the largest for the underwater adventures sentiment)
Squiggles die
Mistletoe die
Cloud dies

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I stamped Snorkeling Beatrice on Papertrey Ink white select card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic Sketch Markers.  I cut her out with the Spellbinders Mega Oval Nestabilities die and embossed it while it was still in the die with my embossing stylus.  Left it in the die and turned it right side up and sponged on Distress inks with the ink blending tools.  First Tumbled Glass, then a little Broken China and last and the least Faded Jeans. Goggles have glossy accents on the lens.

The mats are all cut with the Perfect Layers Tools.  Even the card base.  I scored an 8.5 x 11 piece of Bazzill card-stock in half and folded it.  I held my Tim Holtz ruler at 1/4 in. on the card base fold and placed the top card section (w/adhesive on the back) butted up right to the ruler.  Pressed it down… then proceeded to cut the other three sides with the Perfect Layers tools 1/4 in.  Because it’s a double layer, you will have to go over your cut again.  Works slick!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Luv the cute little underwater adventures sign!  I just hand cut the post and glued the circle and sentiment to the top.  I did stamp the new CC Designs Woodgrain stamp on the post and the New circle frame die!   The rocks on the water bottom are actually clouds!  I know… those clouds work for everything… well almost!!! lol Clouds, snow and now rocks!  I just hand cut the little “seas the day” banner but it dawned on me after the fact that there is a die that would work for that too!   The little fishie is an old EK Success small Paper Shapers punch… I know… not around anymore but Christine will make us some fishie dies!  yea!

Emma says “Seas the day!”   Reality is… yikes where did the morning go!  I got up at 5:45 a.m.!   I didn’t realize my E000 and E00 needed refilled,  so that equals ruined skin and not from the sun either! lol  Do over… ugh!   At least I used a piece of ribbon!  Why do I have all this ribbon anyway! lol   Oh and I used a deep edger EK Success punch I don’t know if I’ve used before!  Good for me!!!  hip hip hurray!  I even used the stamps I was supposed too! lol

*****

I drew the two lines in the background with a copic multi liner pen… then colored the water and the sand with Copics.  Everything is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Hammermill Color Copy 80# Cover and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  Rosies Roadshow cloud template and Memento Summer Sky ink to ink up the clouds. I used the stamp a ma jig to stamp “Seas the day!”  along the bottom of the card.  A sweet Summer card… Did you have a nice weekend?  I shopped to much… didn’t even leave home! lol  Read a couple books… ttul!

Sweet Garden Gnome Elsie…

❤❤❤❤❤

Hi everyone!  It’s CC Designs Thursday Review day on the ATS blog… HERE.  Illustrator Amy Young’s newest line is the Sweet November Garden Gnomes, Adele, Elsie and Tilly.  So charming!

❤❤❤❤❤

I used some October Afternoon pattern paper from an 8×8 pad..Sidewalks.  I paper pieced Elsie’s clothes, shoe and watering can.  I hand stitched the stamped stitched marks.  Some Prima flowers, a Wilton 4 in. doily from Walmart, machine stitching and the Leafy Branch die.  Oh,  I punched circles for the flower centers.  Used a stylus and mouse pad to make them round up and stuck them on a bitty piece of mounting tape.  Layers are all cut with the PERFECT LAYERING TOOLS!  love them!  Links below…

❤❤❤❤❤

I edged all the papers with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Looking forward to a pleasant weekend… lots of memories to treasure and more to make with family!  Some more stamping coming too! Take care!  ttul!
