B.Y.O.Bengay



Good morning and welcome to my blog!
Today I am up on The Rabbit Hole Designs blog and I have a snarky birthday card to share with you today. The brand new Sassy Birthday Sentiments 2 have some of the funniest birthday sentiments I've ever seen. I also love the new stencils available in the shop.  They work great as background stamps like the Twisted Sunshine Stencil or they can be masked off to create funny sayings like the "LOL" on my card using the Spell It Stencil! Since this is the birthday month for The Rabbit Hole Designs I decided to use their logo colors for this card.

Card Recipe

1) I started off by blending Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks over the Twisted Sunshine Stencil on to a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock.

2) Next I took the Spell It Stencil and masked off the "L" and the "O" so I could create the abbreviation "LOL" towards the bottom of the card.  I used Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink for this to complete the logo colors for The Rabbit Hole.

3) For the sentiment from Sassy Birthday Sentiments 2 I stamped it with Versamark Ink on to black card stock and heat embossed it with white powder then adhered it across the center of the card.

4) All that was left was to add some pretty Rabbit Hole sequins around the card for some fun!


I am really enjoying the Sassy Birthday sentiments, they are unexpected 
and always get a good laugh from the recipient!

Make sure to check out the shop for these products from The Rabbit Hole Designs!

Lacy Layered Love card and an Announcement



Good morning crafty friends!
I have some exciting news to share today! As of today I am once again
joining the Kat Scrappiness design team. I am so happy to be back on the team 
and designing for Kat again! Those of you who shop at Kat Scrappiness often know 
what a variety of crafty products she carries in her online shop, not to mention the
growing number of products being released under the Kat Scrappiness brand.
And all of this at excellent prices!
All of my nested background dies are from Kat and I reach for them 
on almost every card I make!

For my first project back on the team I made a Valentine's Day
inspired card to put you in the mood for the new release!
You're definitely going to want to check back in the shop on 
January 17th, 18th and 19th to see all of the wonderful new Valentine's products
being released!

Here is the recipe for today's card:

1) Cut a panel of white Bristol Smooth Cardstock with the largest die in the 

2) With the My Favorite Things Cloud Stencil, blend some 
Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink on your scalloped panels
in varying heights. Adhere stenciled panel to square card base.

3) Die cut the solid heart from the Lacy Layered Heart Die 
from Bristol Smooth Cardstock and the Lacy cover die from vellum.

4) Do some ink blending in rainbow colors on the solid heart and then 
lay the lacy vellum over the rainbow heart.  It looks so pretty to see the 
pretty rainbow colors peaking through the lace.

5) Lastly adhere the heart shaped die to the cloud blended background 
and die cut the word "love" from the I Love You Shadow Dies 
out of silver foil cardstock. Adhere the "love" die cut over the lacy heart.


Here are the Kat Scrappiness products used on my card:

Sending Warm Hugs


This is my first post in the new year for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers
and today I have a card for you featuring products from 5 different companies!

It's always so much fun when I'm making a card to go on a scavenger hunt 
through my collection.  It's always a challenge to find the perfect crafty supply!

Today's card started with the idea of stenciling white hearts on 
kraft paper and here is where I ended up.




I started out by cutting a small panel of Neenah Desert Storm 100 lb Cardstock
out of the 2nd largest die from the Kat Scrappiness Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle Dies.

Next I placed the Taylored Expressions Feathered Stencil over top of it
and sponged on some Hero Arts Unicorn White Ink.

I just love the sentiments from the Trinity A Latte Love stamp set
so I stamped them over the stenciled hearts with my Misti for perfect placement.
I always get a nice crisp image when I stamp in Versafine Black Onyx Ink.

The outside frame on the card was made using the 2 largest dies from
the Kat Scrappiness Embossed Edge Rectangle Dies.  I cut them out at the 
same time to form a frame and I popped it up on foam tape.

The next step was to cut out the cute little coffee cup from the Paper Smooches Sunny Dies.
I used the happy face die from the Paper Smooches Sunnyville Icons for the
sweet little eyes and mouth. I backed the cup in black paper so the eyes and 
mouth would show up. The cute little bow on the cup is from the 
Lawn Fawn Mini Picture Frames.  I added some sweet cheeks with an
R20 Copic Marker and some cute white dots on those cheeks with a
Sakura Gelly Rolly White Pen size 10. I also cut some steam from vellum and 
adhered it behind the cup.

All that was left to do was to add some sparkly Pink Solid Confetti Mix
from Kat Scrappiness.  I picked them up with my Marvy Uchida Jewel Picker
and adhered them with my favorite Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.


Here is another picture showing all the fun products that went into this card!



Thanks so much for joining me today here on my blog!
I hope everyone's New Year is off to a great year and I'll be back
real soon for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers with some caffeinated inspiration!

Enjoy your day, I already am!

Rainbow Happy Birthday


The recent release at The Rabbit Hole Designs was all about birthday cards
and I never have enough of them on hand!

My 2 favorite products from this release were the 
Scripty Happy Birthday stamp and the 

I used both on today's card.

I started with the Twisted Sunshine stencil and did some ink blending
in rainbow colors. I then stamped the Scripty Happy Birthday stamp 
in black over the stenciled design.  I love how the black pops against 
the rainbow! I matted the panel on to a black card base and added
some sparkly clear sequins for some added interest.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and don't forget you can 
now purchase The Rabbit Hole Designs stamps at Simon Says Stamp!

Have a great day, I already am!

The Rabbit Hole Designs January Inspiration Hop ~ Day 3

super excited to bring you 4 new stamp sets and 3 new stencils.
These fun new products are available in the shop right now.

Today we are highlighting 1 stamp set and 1 stencil.
The stamp set is:
"Sassy Birthday 2" 

And today's stencil is called "Twisted Sunshine"

 


I have 2 cards to share with you that uses both of the products we
are highlighting today.


For my first card I started with a rainbow ink blended background using the new
"Twisted Sunshine" stencil and the sentiment is from the "Sassy Birthday"
stamp set we featured yesterday.




For my second card I used one of the sentiments on a "dark" card.....
Although this card is not my usual color scheme, I thought that the
sentiment from the "Sassy Birthday 2"  stamp set needed a more subdued
color palette.  I used gold embossing powder on a black background
and I added in some random confetti stamps from the
"Celebrate With Cake" stamp set that we highlighted on day 1 of the hop.




I hope you enjoyed seeing the new release in action today,

The background of the tag on my card was made using the stencil
we will be highlighting tomorrow called "Twisted Sunshine".
