CC Designs School Hansel…

This is School Hansel… can you just hear the story about why the paper is crumpled?  The puppy got it!  Hansel is one of the new images for August, illustrated by Christine Wooden for CC Designs.  He was really fun to color!  The pencil he’s sitting on, the “write on” sentiment and the two tickets are from the new for August, School Logos set. The tickets are cut out using the Ticket die.

I used two of the new for August CC Designs Cutters dies,  the banner and the apple.  I told Christine about my banner on this card and that we needed it as a die and this is the month!  YEA!  Lots of potential for paper fun again!  For this card I wanted it to be like the chalkboards we had when I was growing up!

School Hansel and his pencil are stamped on Letraset cartridge card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers.   The pattern papers I used are from the Basic Grey 6×6 Oxford pad. The Typewriter die cut letters are a Tim Holtz Sizzlet die called Typeset.  My paper pieces are all edged with Distress ink and the ink blending tool… layers are cut with the Perfect Layers Tools…

 

I’m not writing the ATS blog posts anymore but you’ll still find links to all the new stamps and dies in my posts here!  Thank you!

Thanks for stopping by today!

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!

CCDesigns…A Little Bit of Magic Fairy and Sentiments

A fairy step card for you today!  oh what fun coloring these dinky little fairies from Sweet November… scroll down to my post from yesterday to see another card using this new kit!

I stamped using my stamp a ma jig for positioning… video under the tutorial tab above.  Papertrey Ink card-stock and Hammermill.  I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  The sentiments are stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink… the best stuff on the market for stamping sentiments… so clean and crisp… be sure to allow time for it to dry though… a few minutes at least.  I used the stamp a ma jig to position on the banner die cuts… how to in the same video.  I used the Versafine cube ink pad to just ink up part of the sentiment for the loving wishes.  I love all the stuff you can do with a handy, dandy stamp a ma jig!

Copic colors I used..

Dresses, BV 11, 13, 15 – YG 01, 03, 05 – R81, 83, 85 – B000, 01, 02
Hair,  C’s – E50, YR31, 21, 23, 26 – E30, 31, 33, 34, 35, 37 – E97, 08, 18, 19
Skin,  E0000, 000, 00, 11 and diluted R20 for cheeks

Capture the magic today and happy weekend to you!  I’m off to stamp club this afternoon.  It’s gonna take a trunk to pack up all this show and tell!  Wish you could come!  Wouldn’t that be fun!  I ran out of time last month to take any show and tell.  Hopefully I can get it together for today and pack up what I need for the program too!   Take care and talk to you soon!

“Thank you Fairy Much!” is from the NEW Fairy sentiment set and “have a magical day” is from the Magical Wishes Sentiment set.  I used my stamp a ma jig to stamp the sentiments… pull down the tutorial tab under the header picture for a video on how to use it to stamp sentiments.  The Mushrooms are from the Mushroom stamp set.

I had to use the Leafy Branch die too…

I used sketch #43 from Freshly Made Sketches  blog, HERE.

The fairies are stamped on Hammermill Color Copy 80# cover card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink  and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

Skin – E0000, 000, 00, 11 and diluted R20 for cheeks

dress and wings are E11, 13, 15, 18

Pink dress fairy –

The background is BG70 colored all over…

I used an old Martha Stewart border punch,  cut it down to a size that would fit through the Quilling Creations crimper so it’s “ruffly” looking!  Makes me happy! hehe  The butterfly is an EK Success punch.

Thanks so much for joining me for this preview post!  I’ll be back tomorrow with another cute card you won’t want to miss!  Take care!

Start HERE…

Growing up we didn’t have a TV until I was in 9th grade… we played outside every spare minute and when we were inside we played church, library, store, school and oh, I loved playing table games! So that’s the first thing I thought of when I saw these new images for July illustrated by Christine Wooden. They’re called Meoples… well… that immediately brought to mind because of the rhyme…the pre-school Sunday School song where we locked our fingers, made a steeple and sang open the door and see all the people! Well, that translated to see all the Meoples in my mind! lol Next it translated to a game board! So here you have it from a non-candy eating person… Candyland meets the Meoples!!! Start HERE!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Aren’t they funny?!!!  So cute!  So whimsical…you can’t help but grin!  You HAVE to go see what the other ATS Design Team gals created too!  Fab and F*U*N as Tracy would type it!    HERE’s the post…

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I die cut the NEW 9 Petal Flower and Branch die multiple times and have it vining around the Spooky Fence die.  I made a video to show how I do the flowers.  The Mushroom Border is a CC Designs die cut and so is the Grass Border.  I put the Grass Border through the Quilling Creations mini crimper… love how it looks!

 NEW for July dies are the Olive Branch, two on the die,  going opposite directions!  Love that!  I only used one complete one behind the large Phlox Flower, the rest are parts… pretty cool I think! hehe  The 8 Petal and branch die… the centers on the Phlox Flowers are from this die… I’ll show the rest on Thursday.  The awesome thing about it is, there are two different flowers and multiples of each so you don’t have to run it through the die cut machine so many  times! yea!  There is also a stem for the flowers to “grow” on!!! woohoo! There’s a new Button die and Sweet Treats die!  You’ll see them some more this week during previews and everything will be up for sale in the store THURSDAY NIGHT at 8 P.M. CST

“Hey Cupcake and Have a sweet day” are part of the NEW AmyR Stamps SWEET Sentiment set!  So awesome!  Love the sentiment sets from CC Designs… so many ways to combine messages!  Scroll down for my video using the sentiments and positioning them on your creations.  It’s also listed under the pulldown tutorial tab at the top under the header.

 ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

oh fun… I wanted a simple border… going along with the sketch I followed and I wanted to use something from the CC Designs Cutters die line so… I got out my magnetic holders and started looking…hehe… yep. that delicate little scallop border is from the Christmas Bulb Border die!!!  So lacy and feminine looking!  love it!  I had to use the Fence die!   Haven’t used it for a couple weeks.  Forgot to punch hearts in the pickets though! boo… My videos for how to’s on the fence are under the tutorial tab at the top of this page also.

This 6×6 pattern paper is from a Fancy Pants Summer pad… I doubt that it’s available anymore.  I can’t use this paper up fast enough!  I’m trying though! lol

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!

Marianne Design Basket Birthday Wishes…

***

If the woodgrain stamp is on my desk…I have to stamp it! hahaha… some stamps are just like that!  I really like the white basket on it though… I made the roses with the smallest flower from the CC Designs Phlox die and followed the tutorial on McGill’s website for mini roses HERE.  The basket is Marianne Design, the big leaf is a new die from her and so are the two new greenery dies I used with the roses in the basket.  The little white flowers are punched out of white card-stock and it’s hard to see them but there are three Martha Stewart pine branches punched out of brown card-stock in with the roses and greenery too.

***

***

The sentiment on the outside and on the inside are from CC Designs AmyR Stamps sentiment sets… Birthday Wishes is from the Great Greetings Set  and Thinking of you today is from the Best Birthday Wishes Sentiment set.  I used my Perfect Layers tools to mat … love them!

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