Thank You Card + Giveaway

Saturday, September 24, 2016

Hi crafters! Simply Monica here sharing an easy Thank You Card for any occasion.  I used an August release from Tutti Designs called Rosy Corner TUTTI-160.  I love the intricate cuts on this die with a rose as the focal point perfectly set in the corner of the die.
To make the card I used a piece of purple foil paper and some plain cardstock and layered them against one another for an overlapped look.  I then added a thanks sentiment to the bottom of the card in the purple foil paper to finish the card off. 

I hope everyone enjoyed my card for the day and thanks for looking.  Also, please be sure to check out all the Tutti links where you can see all of our team inspirations and hear about new releases from Tutti Designs!

Hi crafters! Monica here sharing TUTTI-161 Scrolly Bird Tree which is an August new release. This die features birds along some branches of a tree.  Which reminds me of when I am at my parents house.  My dad sits in his ottoman by the porch which over looks the outside and you can see all the tree in his yard.  This tree that is closest to the house I swear attracts every bird known to man kind.  So my dad has put bird feeders all over this tree to feed him them.  

If you were to look outside the tree would look exactly as this does!  Nothing is more beautiful or relaxing either to just sit and enjoy nature.  I hope everyone enjoyed my post for the day and thanks for stopping by everyone!!

Black and White Card + Giveaway

Friday, September 16, 2016
Hi everyone! Monica here sharing a black and white card I made using one of my favorite stamps from Dare 2B Artzy called "Dream Catcher" along with the matching Feather dies.

I used some White Shimmer ink which shows up well on the Chalkstock paper from Canvas Corp.
I used my MISTI tool to stamp the feathers and center focal piece.  I will say this is a great tool to have.  Especially for those times when you dont get a good inked impression because the ink was not spready evenly on your stamp, simply reink and stamp again.  The MISTI allows you to stamp the image over and over without distorting the look.  I absolutely love how this card turned out.

  This is one of my favorite stamp/die sets from the store.  There are so many different uses you can get out of this stamp.  Simply amazing. 

 Don't forget to check out the challenge we have going on right now.  Dare 2B Artzy is giving away some of their amazing stamps so hurry and enter!  Just click the card below to enter our Birthday challenge going on this month right now!!  Also leave a comment if you would like to win this card.

Easy Christmas Card + Giveaway

Wednesday, September 14, 2016
Hi Frantic Stamper fans! Welcome back I have decided to do something a little different when I post.  I am going to give the card I made away to one person who comments and send somethinfg extra!  I figure instead of chucking my cards in the trash why not give it away to someone who comments since they obviously like it right?!! lol  Plus Christmas is coming and the world is just not quite the same so why not pay it forward if this is paying it forward hmmm..  Okay on to my post for the day.
This die is from the September 1st release and this super cute Santa is ready to distribute his toy across the world.. okay so what do you think he is called ha "Santa with Toy Bag" FRA-Die 10012 of course  what else would he be called right!  I punched him out using all foil papers I have become sort of addicted to using these papers lately I just love how shiny and bright they are.

This release was ginormous total of 43 new dies in this bunch so be sure to stop the store and have a look at all the new dies!
 Thanks for stopping by and leave a comment if you like the card you might just be receiving it in the mail!

God's Time + Give Thanks

Tuesday, September 13, 2016
Hi crafters! Today I am here sharing a Bible Journaling page using some newly released stamps from Joy Clair stamps.  The set I am using today is called God's Time.

I used Imagine inks to stamp on the page along with a stencil from Clearsnap in zig-zags to dress up the page.  I chose bright fun colors from Radiant Neons.  For my next page I used the stamp set Give Thanks which has these fun hearts which goes right along with loving what these bible pages have to say.  I sued some stickles on the hearts and stamped the sentiments using Kaleidacolor ink from Imagine.

I hope everyone enjoyed my post and be sure to check out Joy Clair's
