Flowery Congratulations Card


Hi Chris here and today I am sharing this flower-y Card I created for Sin City Stamps.  To create this lovely card I used the following products
Sin City Supplies
Flower Border Die Cuts
Pink 1/2 round Flatback Embellishment
Other Supplies
Faeber Castell Gelatos, Faeber Castell Glass beads, Pebbles sticker accents, Black Soot Distress Ink

To create this project I started by laying my stencil on my card base. I then mixed my gelatos and glass bead medium.  I then applied that mixture over the stencil.  You can see the result below!

While the background was drying, I recolored my die cut using my Distress Ink




















I then attached the border to my card. I topped the border strip off with the pink 1/2 round Flatback embellishment and added the sticker greeting and the butterfly button.  And here is the final project.

Spring Booms Pillow Box


Chris here and today I would like to share with you this beautiful pillow box!
To create this project I started off with some amazing die cuts & stamps from Sin City Stamps.
Sin City Stamps Supplies include
Pillow Box Die Cut
Flower Die Cuts (3D and outline)
Art Journaling with Terri Sproul 2 Stamps
Sin City Ribbons-Dark purple, white double lace, and light purple
Other supplies used include Tim Holtz Distress Inks-Dusty Concord

I started by stampin my pillow box with the Art Journaling with Terri Sproul 2 Stamps

 I then folded my box and added some die cut flower outlines.


 I then created my 3D flowers by "rolling the up". You can see the flower before I started on the left and the finished flower on the right!

 I then attched my flowers to the pillow box and added the ribbon. You can see how I put the first  two ribbons together here. To complete the ribbons I added another bow in the light purple ribbon.



 And here is the finished project! I hope you enjoyed this project!

Happy Easter card

Chris here sharing this fun card made from the pre-made card base from Sin City Stamps. 
You can see that there are notches  on the front of the card.  They fit into little slots on the back of the card, and because the front of the card is longer than the back the front ends up being rounded and 3 dimensional.

I started off with the card base and added some faux stitching around the greeting on the front of the card.  I then decorated the inside of the card with some American Crafts papers to create a sky and grass.
I added the flower flatback embellishments from Sin City Stamps and added some hand-drawn stems.  Don't worry the stems don't have to be perfect, you are just going for a field of flowers as the background for your card. Once your background is done, fold your card and you are finished.
