Karen Burniston Coffee Cup Pop-up Card…

Here’s that cup of Joe you said you needed! 😀 This was so fun to make!

The white piece of card sticking out the side on the right of the mug is a gift card… I know, I know… we were at WM but I forgot to pick up a gift card!  We were thinking Easter stuff!  hehe

Here’s a close up of the sentiment… I just used a piece from the paper pad…

And here’s the front!

More pieces of the 6×6 patter paper pad and a stamped sentiment from a Hero Arts stamp set.  I used Carta Bella Flora No 1 6×6 pad that isn’t available anymore, so I linked below to Carta Bella Flora No 2.  Same type of look to it.

Linking to some challenges…

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Floral Frenzy

Simon Says Stamp National Craft Month

AND, the most important thing…here’s Karen’s video on how to put this together!  She is awesome…easy to follow and so good at walking a person through the process.  If you ever get a chance to go to her classes…GO!  I taught at the same event with her a few years ago and it was so nice to meet her and chat about die cutting/cardmaking.  She has a lot of fun dies for pop up cards.

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Your Next Stamp, Hero Arts and MFT ATC’s…

Hi everyone!  Excuse me while I backtrack to Valentines Day but I just have to share these Artist Trading Cards I made for our grandchildren for V-day! I made doubles and triples of most because we need a lot for our awesome grandkids!  I know, I know, I’m bias! lol

Starlitstudio.net sells these little sacks, so I decorated them a wee bit with washi tape.  I’ll link everything below…

It’s impossible to get googly eyes to behave for a photo laying down! lol

I had a few versions of this cactus one…

These for the older girls…

These for the older boys…

I had fun making (so did they) and our valentine exchange party was so fun for everyone!  I took sheet protectors for all the sizes of cards so they can keep them in ring binders.

Well that’s it for today!  Holler if you have any questions!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share with you!

Two CAS Christmas cards…

pam-sparks-ha-nativity-cas

Hi everyone! I have to get some posts in while it’s snowing here on the blog! lol Sharing the two cards I had the gals make at our stamp club Christmas party a couple weeks ago.

I stamped the silhouette image and sentiment from Hero Arts in black multiple times with the MISTI and Versafine Onyx Black ink, then using clear embossing powder I embossed it on a periwinkle color card-stock. The stamp set is, Greatest Gift CL559 if you want to google it.

Then I inked it with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink and an ink blending tool.

The pretty Avery Elle pierced postal frame die cut and mounted with strips of craft foam. I covered both sides of a piece of craft foam with Scor-tape and cut it into strips. Thank you Cindy for that technique! It’s awesome!

pam-sparks-snowflake-bkgrd-noel

Here I used a snowflake background and word from Taylored Expressions and Crafter’s Companion watercolor paper. It’s really white. The holly and berries from Reverse Confetti.

Very easy A2 size and flat for mailing cards!  I hope you’re enjoying this creative and busy season!  It is going by way too fast for me! The tree is up and decorated and some of the other decorative things are out. yay!

oh presents…well…we’re working on it! lol

Take care! Thanks for stopping by today!

P.S. I have one TE Christmas Card class kit left if anyone is interested! I’d love to sell it!  Photo and price on the ‘For Sale’ page, a tab under my blog title.

Ombre Hero Arts Scene for Addicted to CAS challenge…

pam-sparks-hero-arts-village-scene-ombre-greetings-close

Hi everyone!  When I saw the challenge at Addicted to CAS…I just knew I needed to use some of my Hero Arts stamps with the Hero Arts Ombre stamp pad!  I had to hurry though cuz we’re down to the last few hours!  eek!  Life on the edge when you have too many things going! lol

pam-sparks-hero-arts-village-scene-ombre-greetings

I tried a few different backgrounds but ended up just going around the perimeter of the image with a gold paint pen after I inked and put 4 inch wide double stick tape over the top and covered it with Judikins Micro Clear Beads… I have to use them at least once a year!  hehe

pam-sparks-hero-arts-village-scene-ombre-greetings-closer

I die cut a Memory Box Postage square die, Holly die and the sentiment from Cottage Cutz in white glitter card-stock, holly in green. So festive but with a vintage appeal too.

pam-sparks-hero-arts-village-scene-ombre-greetings-angled

I’m happy so it’s back to work on the house. The living/dining room is painted and we’re working on moving things back in.  Tim washed some windows and I’ve been cleaning blinds!  oh yuk is right! Double yuk!  That’s why I had to stop and make something! haha

ok – ttul!

Valentines…

Pam Sparks Typewriter Valentine

I had great fun using stamps and dies to make Valentines last week! Our family party was yesterday so now I can show what I made. I don’t have a picture of one of them and two others didn’t get finished! I always run out of time!

This typewriter (CG280 My Type) card is Hero Arts stamps except for the row of hearts…it’s from Printworks.  I used the Misti to stamp so I could get this super, wonderful black inking!  love it!

Pam Sparks World Valentine

This one is the size of an ATC and uses Reverse Confetti’s world die and an Avery Elle sentiment.  The background embossing folder is from Cuttlebug.  The woodgrain stamp is from All Night Media.

Pam Sparks Airplane Valentine

I made a few of these for the younger grandsons…Avery Elle stamp and die sets and a Hero Arts sentiment stamp. Silver Wink of Stella Brush Marker on the wings and more.

Pam Sparks Fishing Valentine

Here’s the Memory Box Rectangle Frames die with a partial cut heart die, also from Memory Box.  The sentiment stamps and Little Bits Fishing pole and Fish are from Taylored Expressions.  The background is the All Night Media woodgrain stamp again.

Pam Sparks Tree Ring Valentine

I was inpsired by Sarah G for this card. I used the Winnie and Walter Tree Ring stamp, a Memory Box heart die, WPlus9 you die and the Hero Arts sentiment again.  Oh the arrow stamp is from My Favorite Things.

I made envelopes for all the Valentines using the old penmanship lined paper we had in grade school. Fun!

Whew, I could’ve made Valentines for a couple more weeks… it’s like Christmas cards once I get started I don’t want to quit! lol

Now, it’s time to clean up! lol All 17 of the grandkids loved the Valentine exchange party we had yesterday afternoon and hey, the adults had a great time too!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share with you. Happy stamping!

Links to some of the products I used to make these cards…

(the typewriter I used is CG280, I linked to a bigger typewriter by HA below but it doesn’t come with the 3 messages that CG280 does, if you can find it)

A little more Christmas…

 

Pam Sparks PTI Christmas Wishes

 

I really enjoyed playing with this Spruce and Sprigs set from Papertrey ink after seeing what their design team did with it. I wish I’d had more time to make more!  : )

So festive.  I used Stampin Up’s Real Red ink,  Peeled Paint and Pine Needles Distress Inks.  Then I brushed in a little Copic Sketch marker.

 

Pam Sparks PTI Christmas Wishes Close
