ScraPerfect Makes Clean And Simple Cards Quick and Easy!

Hi there!  I am here today to share two quick and easy, clean and simple cards that I made with the help of the products from ScraPerfect.  I have seen many out there posting quick and easy cards and thought I would challenge myself to make some too.  Clean and simple cards are also a challenge for me since I love embellishments!  I am stunned that the only supplies I needed was 3 sheets of 12 by 12 paper, some sequins and buttons, white ribbon,  the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie.
I even had some of the paper left over!  Here are the cards I created:


I began by cutting a sheet of yellow 12 by 12 paper into 2 card bases.  I then choose some paper by Illustrated Faith and cut out the pieces that I wanted to add to my card.  I used the
Best Glue Ever with the large No Clog Writing Cap on top to apply tiny dots to the paper pieces and then secure to my cards.  This step was made easier since all of my paper stuck to the card stock very well since the Best Glue Ever has the best stick factor out there!


To quickly add some embellishments to my cards, I grabbed some small buttons and sequins and my
Embellie Gellie and was able to place them perfectly on my cards.  I love this product sine I don't have to worry about dropping tiny pieces or accidentally getting them stuck in the glue.  Look at how easy it is to use:




As a finishing touch, I made 2 bows out of white organza ribbon and added them to my cards with a large glue dot of the Best Glue Ever.  I added a button to the bow centers and since they were a bit heavier on the bow, I waited until my glue dot cured and was clear before attaching the bows to the cards.  I think they give my cards the perfect touch.  I think my clean and simple cards came out pretty cute and were definitely quick and easy thanks to ScraPerfect!  Here is a closer look at both of my cards, I hope you like them:

Tr Stampin On Tuesday Card Challenge 411

Hi there!  Today I am sharing my first card for June as a Guest Designer for the card challenge blog, Try Stampin On Tuesday.  Please check out the challenge out and play along.  The design for this card is based on the sketch below and had the option to be vintage/grunge style.


I gathered up some inks, sprays, and vintage themed papers from one of my favorite paper pads and created this card.  I have made many things vintage as it is one of my favorite styles, but the grunge aspect is newer to me, so this truly was a challenge for me.  This is the card I made:


To begin, I sprayed my card base with the Vintage Photo Distress Oxide spray and heat set it.
Then, I cut my vintage printed card stock pieces and swiped with the Frayed Burlap distress ink and the Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink pads and heat set that as well.  I wanted the paper to be the main focus, so I kept my embellishments to a minimum.  I added a small doily that was also sprayed and placed a vintage button in the center of the doily.  A trio of vintage buttons were also added to the top right of my card.  For added interest, I also used the caramel Nuvo Drops in the center of some of the buttons.  I hope you like my take on vintage/grunge and appreciate you stopping by today.

Again, please subscribe to the Try Stampin On Tuesday Blog so you can follow or play along with all of the challenges,.  If you would like to see more of my makes, please subscribe to this blog and feel free to leave me a comment.  I will be back again at the end of the month with another challenge.

Until Then,

Try Stampin On Tuesday Card Challenge 410

Hello everyone!  I am continuing my term as a Guest Designer for the Try Stampin On Tuesday Blog with a new card challenge.  I really enjoy challenges and hope you do too!  This is what the sketch looked like for this challenge, it also included the option to use pastels.



I got out some pastel papers and created this card based on the design above:



I started by swiping the edges of my card with the Tattered Rose Distress Oxide ink and heat set it.  Then I used my circle punch to cut a circle out of a paisley printed card stock.  I used the same distress oxide ink pad to stamp a fleur de lis in the center of the circle. I assembled my layers and used a coordinating solid colored blue and pink card stock.  Next I added the blue and white damask printed paper.  For embellishment, I added white and pink sequin trim and a gorgeous pearl and rhinestone trim.  I also added a few pieces of tiny pink bling.  To finish off my card, I added a fabric bow and a blue rosette to the side of my card. What I love about this card is that it is versatile enough to be used for any occasion.

If you would like to play along with this challenge, please subscribe to the blog, Try Stampin On Tuesday.  If you would like to see more of my creations, please also subscribe to my blog.  I will be back with two more challenges in June, so please check back!  Thanks for stopping by today, I'd love for you to leave a comment.

A Perfect Vacation

 Hello everyone  today, I am sharing a card that I made in honor of summer approaching.
  Thoughts of the beach and summer days spent there inspired this project.  I hope you like it!


I began this card by securing the striped card stock to my card base with the Best Glue Ever
  I also have a large No Clog Writing Cap on my glue bottle.  It helps reduce waste by providing more control and you only need a tiny amount and the stick is fantastic!


I made an large embellishment for the top of my card by attaching a piece of card stock from the Graphic 45 collection called Sun Kissed to a piece of ribbon.  I used foam tape on the back of the card stock for dimension, and secured the ribbon to my card with glue dots made from the 
Best Glue Ever. I added some coordinating orange sequin trim to the sides of my card stock as well. Three royal blue sequins were added to both sides also and I added clear crystal stickles from White Rose Crafts to the beach image.



For the middle of my card I cut out two flags from the same paper collection and attached them to the card next to each other with the Best Glue Ever.  I added a blue sequin at the points of each flag for interest, and placed them perfectly by using Embellie Gellie  I used a 2 and a half inch circle punch and punched out a circle from some jellyfish paper from my stash.  Using a distress ink pad, I stamped my sentiment, which reads " a perfect vacation".  Finishing my card off, I used glue dots made from the Best Glue Ever to secure  two small shells and a piece of sea stone to my card.  


Making this card has made me want to go to the beach and have a perfect vacation myself!  I hope it has inspired you to dream of the beach and create something beachy too.  It was easy with the help of the products from ScraPerfect and White Rose Crafts.  The design for this card was provided by the White Rose Crafts Blog as it is their Sketch Challenge for May.  I will be entering my card in this challenge.

Until Next Time,

Kim

Try Stampin on Tuesdays Card Challenge

Hi there!  I am excited to announce that I will be a Guest DT for Try Stampin on Tuesday for the next three months!  Try Stampin on Tuesday is a great card challenge blog with very creative sketches.  If want to play along, subscribe to the blog Try Stampin On Tuesday.  The card I have designed is for the challenge number 408, here is the sketch:


Here is the card that I created:


I have always loved France and since it's been in the news recently and my Daughter is there as I write this; I was inspired to create a card with a Parisian feel.  I started with a blank white card and swiped it with the Tattered Rose Distress Oxide by Tim Holtz.  I cut shapes to match the sketch out of 2 slightly varied colors of pink card stock and one from a hand dyed pink paper.

To add texture, I used Ranger texture paste and applied it with a palette knife through a floral Tim Holtz stencil.  After drying with my heat tool, I lightly swiped it with the Tattered Rose Distress Oxide pad to add subtle color.


I added a beautiful metal rose button and I tied pink crinkled seam binding and black organza ribbon under it.  I really like the contrast they provide.  On the right side of my card, I covered one piece of the pink car stock with a gauzy white lace.  I secured a black Eiffel Tower die cut to that with foam tape for dimension.  I also added some tiny pink rhinestone embellishments on it to dress it up a bit.  I also added a piece of ephemera with the word "French" on it and decorated that with two tiny pearls.


I chose to leave the inside of the card blank since it could be stamped when an occasion arises to use it.  I think it would be pretty for a female birthday or Mother's Day card.  I hope you like it.
I will be back again later in the month with another sketch challenge.  Please follow along or play along, you can see all of the entries and sketches on the Try Stampin on Tuesday blog.


Until Then,

Best Cleaner Ever Saves The Day!

Hello everyone, I am. here today to share with you some exciting news from ScraPerfect about the Best Cleaner Ever,  It's new and improved and now works even faster and has a lovely new orange scent.  I have been anxiously awaiting this and was holding on to a holographic rose framed photograph that had become a mess over the years, so I could test it out first hand,  Here is what my photo looked like before:


I started by spraying a few spritzes of the new and improved Best Cleaner Ever over the entire front of my photo.  I then grabbed my Perfect Cleaning Cloth and rubbed the stained patches with some pressure.  It was so great that I didn't have to wait a bit and could start cleaning right away.



A quick pass through with a paper towel to wipe off the excess was next.  I was truly amazed to see how well this worked!  I am excited to try it on all types of surfaces now.  It's non toxic too so you don't have to worry about your kids or pets coming into contact with it.  Here is how my photograph turned out, the results speak for itself:


What a difference!  I am ready to hang it up in my craft room and enjoy this every day!
I would highly recommend getting a bottle or two of the new and improved Best Cleaner Ever, keep one in your craft space and give one to your husband for his tool box like I did.  Thanks for stopping by today, be sure to follow ScraPerfect on social media and subscribe to the blog for daily inspiration,  To see more of my work, subscribe to my blog, Vintage Rose Creations by Kim.

Simply Create Too Anything Goes Challenge

Hello everyone!  I am here today with a project share for a card challenge blog that I design for.  You can subscribe to the blog so you can play along at Simply Create Too.  This month the theme was anything goes, so I had the freedom to design whatever I wanted.  Here is the card I created:


I have always loved roses and hadn't used the Vintage Rose paper pad by Stamperia in a while, so I decided to use this gorgeous collection.  I used a pink card stock for my card and then added layers from the paper,  I swiped all of the papers with the tattered Rose Distress Oxide pad by Tim Holtz and then heat set it.  A pink clay handmade rose was added as the focal point in the center of my card, which I colored a pale pink with a mica eyeshadow.  It is flanked by white irridescent sequins.  Two beaded bridal appliques were secured to the corners of my card with Fabri Tac.  I fussy cut two tags from the Vintage Rose paper pad and then punched holes in them with my Crop-A-Dile.  I tied a loose bow with some pink chiffon fabric and added it to my card.  Then, I added a charm and both tags to a silver garment pin and pinned it through my bow.  Next to that I added a silver metal rose button.  White fringe trim was added to both tags, and crystal stickles by Dove craft from White Rose Crafts were added to all of the roses on my card for a great sparkle.

I love the way it came out and could see it as a Mother's Day card or a card for a friend that loves roses as much as I do.  I hope you like what I created and will follow along or play along in this months challenge for Simply Create Too.  I will be back again in June for the next challenge.

See You Then,

Kim Lippincott
