Pieced Pumpkin Waterfall Card

Hello Sunshine! Look at this cute pumpkin (jack-o-laterns) waterfall card Thia creatively designed using Spiced Sunshine Stamps, Peachy Keen Stamps, Lawn Fawn Papers, and The Robin's Nest Dew Drops.

Thia's idea for this card came from the current Peachy Keen Challenge going on until the 13th of this month. 

Don't forget to enter the Blue Moon Crafting Station Challenge going on until a week from this Wednesday! Challenge is Fall or Halloween! We here challenge you to enter there with some creative pumpkins!

Thia's pumpkins were created using a punch and the classic stitched oval stamp from the Hugs, Love, and Miises Faux Stitched Ovals Set. For the stem, she used the trunk of the Joy, Love, and Peace Tree. And for the leaf, she used a holly leaf from our Jolly Holly set. Pretty creative stamping!

The faces are from Peachy Keen Stamps. They are the company that manufactures Spiced Sunshine Stamps! We just LOVE them!

Cut one 3.5" square out of Neenah's white card stock to emboss with brick pattern for front of card. With card closed, adhere bricks to front center of card. Open card up and adhere 4 selected triangles onto the same side as front of card into the center of their designated areas. Turn over and adhere triangles and squares into their areas. (Keeping in mind that any papers with words on them should be double checked for proper placement if you fold up the card.)

Using Stamps For Fun Flowers

Hello Sunshine! Thia here to share with you a FUN floral gift bag that I created by using Bead Landing Bottle Caps and Epoxy Stickers, American Girl Crafts Paper Posies, We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Punch Board, and the oh so fun Spiced Sunshine Stamps!

Isn't it adorable? To get the pretty flower center, I used the sun and face from the Spiced Sunshine set. I then stuck an epoxy sticker over it and then cut it out along the edge of the sticker. Glued it onto a small white flower then placed it inside the bottle cap. I used a glue dot to attach it to a bigger flower, and repeated this process twice. I then bent the petals so they'd have some dimension. Used double sided foam adhesive to attach it along with the leaf, to the bag that I created using the punch board! Cool, right? Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to check out our latest arrivals ready to ship! Now go add some SPICE to your crafts!

Quick Christmas Tree Card

Good morning Sunshine! Thia here with a QUICK Christmas Card creation for you today, using Our All American Tree set BMC-0028. Believe it or not, I finally did it...This card is one that you can create in under 10 minutes! Really simple to do...Set that clock, ready, set...stamp! Just ink up the words using 3 ink colors and stamp on your white card stock. Ink the trunk in brown and position then stamp under the A. Stamp your star on top. Trim to desired size. Now stamp the star again on a patterned paper. Cut out the star on the inside lines. Adhere to tree. Create a twine bow and glue in place at top of tree trunk. Add 3 drops or gems of your choice to upper right. Pick out a coordinating card stock and trim to a quarter inch larger on each side (equates to half inch on two sides). Your card stock base will need to be slightly bigger than the patterned paper and doubled so it can be folded into a card. Fold base in half then adhere the patterned paper on top (be sure to center patterned paper on base front). Next take your stamped paper and tilt it a bit. Adhere to patterned paper. Stop the clock, you are DONE! Easy peasy, right?

Miss You Card

Hello sunshine! Today we'd like to share a card that Thia created. It does have a Peachy Keen Stamps image on it. (Hey, here's a secret, they manufacture our stamps...yes, it's true...we are sooo excited about it too!) She spiced up her card by using a Spiced Sunshine Stamped sentiment and stamped faux stitching on the circle. 

This card is one of many that will go to Operation Weite Home at the end of this month. Can you believe it's July already? We sure can't!

The first thing Thia did was color the image in using her Copic markers. Once colored, she had a card idea in her head but wanted to be able to see it better, so she Google searched card sketches. She couldn't find anything and was about to give up. When she found a perfect match...
And there was exactly what she had in mind! It is crazy that the girls are a bit similar and the circle in the sample card had white stitching around it too!

So, that's how this card for Operation Write home came to be. We hope you enjoyed visiting with us today! If you want some faux stitched shape stamps of your own, head over to our shop and check out our selections! Oh...and if you do place an order, you will receive a FREE GIFT!
