Eskimo Cool!

Jen Carter So Cool 1 wm

Today's card was so fun to create!  I love these papers from Doodlebug Designs called Polar Pals!  

I started by die cutting the Cover Up Die: Snowflakes from Lil' Inker Designs with white glitter paper.  I layered that over a piece of plaid patterned paper.

I used one of the Dotted Tags Dies to die cut the turquoise tag and also to die cut the patterned paper to match.  I stamped the sentiment from the newly updated stamp set, Sunshine Sentiments which has some seriously cute sentiment options!

Love You to Pieces

Can you believe that we are so close to Valentine's Day already?  Which also means we are halfway through February?  It's crazy how fast the first of the year has gone already!

Today the card I have to share is made using a fun puzzle die!

Jen Carter Puzzle Love Pieces

I started by finding a piece of patterned paper that I thought would make a nice scene for a puzzle.  Then I used a stamp set from Frantic Stamper called Puzzle Me to stamp the sentiment in the upper right hand corner.

I then used the Nine Piece Puzzle Panel to cut the pieces apart.  There is a outline to this die that makes the pieces fit perfectly together but I wanted a slightly more artistic look for this card so I chose to forgo using that piece this time.  I matted each piece on top of a coordinating piece of cardstock with dimensionals.

Thank you for stopping by!  Hope you enjoyed the card!

Happy Birthday Peek a Boo Card

Jen Carter Happy Birthday Candle 2

Hey everyone!  I pulled out some dies that I haven't had a chance to play with to put together a fun birthday card.  I started by cutting the "Happy" out of the front of my card (Happy Card Band Die).  There are so many ways to use this die, but it seems absolutely perfect to use for a birthday! I used the Celebration stamp set to stamp the candle and the little candle "sparkles" around the flame.  I love that little sparkle stamp!  It is such a great element!

I wanted to show you a picture of the card with the background peeking through a little better.  The striped paper is adhered to the inside of the card.

The birthday word is cut from glitter paper and is one of two dies in the Happy Birthday Script die set.  The little balloon flying away is from the cute Birthday Icons die set.

Thanks for joining me today!

P.S.  Here's a look at the Celebration stamp set!  I love the sentiments and fonts!

Jen Carter XOXO Love

Did you have a chance to check out the newest release from Lil' Inker Designs last week?  If not, I hope you'll take a look!  This card features some of the newest products.

I used two of the patterned papers from the new Love You Paper Pack.  Aren't they cute?  The best thing is that they are only $3.75 in the store!  For my white frame, I die cut the cardstock first with one of the dies from the Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles dies.   Then, I used one of the new Dual Dotted Hearts dies to cut out the heart shape.  That was backed with paper from the Love You Paper Pack.

The sentiment, from Love Things Stamps, was foiled onto a black strip die cut with one of the Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag dies.  I strung a piece of solid Charcoal twine through the holes in the heart.

I'm entering this card in the Can You Case It Color Challenge.

I couldn't resist using the cute little Lovie Friends StampsLovie Friends Dies one more time this release.  I put the cute little critter on a background that I die cut with the Wrapper's Delight: Sunburst Die.

I used my Minc machine to foil the stamped sentiment from the newly revised Sunshine Sentiments.  To do this I embossed the sentiment with fine detail white embossing powder, put the foil on top, put it in the transfer folder and ran it through the minc on heat level 2.  Don't try heat level won't work, unless you like the really smooshed look, LOL!  I LOVE that I can foil my sentiments!

I am going to enter this card over at the SSS Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge!

Last card for the release.  For the white background I used the largest rectangle die from the super fun new Silly Stitched Die Set.  I used the next sized rectangle from the same die set on the pink sprinkles paper.  And, I also used one of the circles from that set behind the coffee cup too. I die cut the Heart Banner at the top after first using the Quilted Swirl Stitched Pattern Die to cut the pattern into the hearts for added texture.

The coffee cup was die cut with the new Coffee Cozy Die Set.  I used a piece of patterned paper to get the sentiment on the cup like that and it fit perfectly!  Also, can you see the score lines in the cup lid?  I love that detail! I stamped the coordinating sentiment from the new Coffee Cozy Stamps.
