Layered Valentine Cards

Image
Hello friends! Can you believe that Valentine's Day is right around the corner? Hopefully you have been busy creating for your special Valentine. If not, I have an easy layered Valentine project for you.


Be sure to check out my process video below.


To start out, I grabbed some Cardstock from Canvas Corp brand to fit the occasion. 


Using an oval die, I cut out the floral cardstock.  I adhered the washi tape and the oval cardstock to the red and white striped cardstock.


I adhered some pop up roses to my floral cardstock using pop ups from European Paper Crafts. 

Finally, I cut out some sentiments from The sentiment sheet also from Canvas Corp Brands. 

This was such an easy project, I decided to make a few cards.  I hope you all have a great Valentine's Day!

Thanks for stopping by.

STAMPlorations - Sketch and Theme Challenge

Image
Are you playing along with the Sketch and Theme challenge this month over at STAMPlorations? I know that you are creating using hearts, so why not link up with us?

For my second card of the month, I decided to go back to my roots and create a grungy mixed media card. I am using the stamp called "Do what you Love"...so I did. 
You can check out my process video below.



I went with the theme of hearts, but you can always use the sketch below for your inspiration.
There still is time to play in the challenge, so get out those hearts


Now don't forget, you can get an extra 20% off by using my special code STAMPGIRLMONICA.

Masculine and Feminine Cards using same stamp set

Image
Hi everyone! Well I finally got a chance to get grungy in my craft room. I have had an idea about an ongoing series for my You Tube Channel using one stamp set to create a Masculine and Feminine Card. 

You can check out my process video below. 


I used many of the same techniques for both cards, but as you can see, one is clearly a girl robot and the other is a boy robot.  For the girl, I didn't use as many gears, but focused more on the color Pink.


for the boy robot, I went all industrial and even hooked him up to a conveyor belt.  While both cards came from the same set, you can see that you can easily create a male or female card, helping our stash to just go a little bit farther.


Thanks for stopping by!

My Visit to Viva Las Vegas

Image
Hi everyone! I recently took a trip with my husband to Las Vegas, and of course we had to visit the stamp shop called Viva Las Vegas!  If you are ever in Las Vegas, this is a must see!

It was a little shop, but the space was utilized to capacity. It had rows and rows of stamps!  Most of the stamps were on the wooden blocks, but you can get them mounted or unmounted. I chose to get mine unmounted and shipped to me for free.


Now if you are hesitant about purchasing unmounted stamps, I put together a video to show you how to mount and store these. It is a huge savings to buy them unmounted, plus you save a lot of storage space.


I think we ended up spending a couple of hours there as there was so much to see. I walked away with a great bunch of stamps. I can't wait to start using them.

Thanks for stopping by!

STAMPlorations February Theme and Sketch Challenge

Image
Hello everyone! It is a new month and a new challenge over at STAMPlorations. Our theme this month is Hearts. But if you would rather follow a sketch, we have one for you as well.

This month, I decided to follow the theme of hearts. I am using the Shakers Balloon #1 Heart from CUTplorations along with the Follow Your Arrow stamps set. 


My background was created using a retired background stamp.  Now remember, you can use the theme, the sketch or both to link up to the challenge, it is completely up to you.  You will have all month to play along, but remember, February is a short month, so don't take to long.

Now don't forget, you can get an extra 20% off by using my special code STAMPGIRLMONICA.
