Guest DT: Debbie Carriere

Happy October!  Today we're welcoming a new guest, Debbie Carriere! Woohoo!  Here's her first project and a little bit about her.

Hello!!  Debbie Carriere, here, and I am thrilled to be guest designing  for i {heart} papers!  I started stamping in 2008 and fell in love immediately.  Soon after, I found Splitcoaststampers and started playing along with lots of challenges - I was hooked!  I have had the pleasure of designing for some great companies and challenge sites over the past few years.  I make lots of cards and scrapbook occasionally.  You can visit me at my blog,  a simple diversion. In real life, I am mom to three great kids and wife to a very understanding husband.  When I’m not crafting or taking care of my family and home, you’ll find me running, reading, or enjoying the outdoors.  I am looking forward to sharing my creations using fabulous products from the IHP store!  Thank you to Kate & Tracy for inviting me!

Today I am sharing my first card using a couple fantastic stamp sets from the i {heart} papers store.


The border pattern is from Wplus9 - Borders & Backgrounds 4.  I love, love, love this set - so many possibilities!  The sentiment from Winnie & Walter - The Big, the Bold, and Blessings was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I added a few sequins from i {heart} papers and some clear sparkles from my stash.  The sequins are the spotlight silver.  Here is a closer look.


I'm looking forward to sharing some more projects using great products from the i {heart} papers store over the next couple months.

Supplies:
clear sparkles
red & green inks
white card stock

DT Day: Lori

Hi, IHP fans!  It's Lori here with a clean and simple--and sparkly--card using stamps from Avery Elle.


I used the big gem image from the Many Thanks set as my focal image.  It was stamped in black pigment ink on pink cardstock, then heat embossed.  Tog make the gem sparkly, I gave it a nice coating with my clear Wink of Stella pen.  I love these pens!  If you don't have one (or more) in your stash, you definitely want to pick up a few.  They add lots of sparkle with no drying time and no smearing, which is a big plus in my book.

I used dimensional dots to add the gem to the cardfront on top of a rose cardstock strip stamped with the "you" from the Many Thanks set and the "rock" from the We Go Together set.  A few disco silver  sequins finish off the design.

DT Day: Lindsay

Hi everyone! 
Lindsay with you today, to share a fall card with you.  It's just now cooling off here in Northeastern Ohio, after a few days of hot and humid weather.  That had me thinking about fall, and the cool, crisp air it brings.  I love when the leaves turn, and their color is everywhere!  In that frame of mind, I created this, using fun products from mostly Paper Smooches, and a Lawn Fawn stamp set.  

I started by die cutting the fun Large Leaves Dies, and inking them with Distress Inks.  I set those aside as I worked on my card base.  Taking the Interlocking Backgrounds set from Lawn Fawn, I gold heat embossed the funky chevron strip onto the front of a white note card.  I then die cut the words "you" and "are" from the Kudos Word Die set, using black cardstock, and adhered them to the card, adding the "too kind" from Chit Chat last.
Lastly, I adhered my leaves in a haphazard way, covered them with Wink of Stella glitter, and added glossy accents to my die cut words. I hope you were inspired to break out the die cuts, and inks, and try something fun on your latest projects.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

DT Day: Tracy

Hi there IHP fans! It's Tracy here with a simple and fun card for you. I think these would be easy to reproduce for a party or for thank you's- that's if you don't mind die-cutting the window. I'm playing along in a fun new-to-me-challenge I found called One-Layer Simplicity. Our guest DT Ardyth is this month's host! 

I used my square nestabilities to cut the window in the center. Stamped my fun sentiment from Winnie &Walter in the window. Then on the front of the card, I doodled a little frame around it. And finished everything off with a button and some twine of course! One Layer Hello Recipe Cardstock: MFT sweet tooth Stamps: Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold, and the Happy Ink: Hero Arts Orange Soda Accessories: square nestabilities; Copic Multiliner .3 black; aqua button; Hemptique yellow twine

DT Day: Ardyth

I love this colorful card (and great use of background stamp) from our guest Ardyth.  Here's her post:


Here's my latest Guest DT creation for i {heart} papers. I had a lot of fun with some colours I don't use very often and a couple of stamp sets that, even though they come from different companies, work really well together.

This fun, bubbly background that I created carries on UNDER (CASology 111) the white popped-up circular panel. And UNDER the card (if it's lying down on the table) is a surprise - I stamped the background on the back too! No reason for the party to stop at the border of the front of the card!


Supplies:
Avery Elle: Brushed
Winnie & Walter: Big Bang Confetti
Memento Ink: Tuxedo BlackDandelion, Lilac Posies
Hero Arts Ink: Pale Tomato
LawnFawn: Circle dies
Dimensional dots
White Cardstock

DT Day: Vera

Hi everyone. Vera here. Today, I have a flowery card to share with you. I used to find working with flower stamps challenging. Until I saw Wplus9 Fresh Cut Floral set. That set pretty much open the way to my love of flower sets. So, it's no surprise that when they came out with Fresh Cut Containers, I have to add this set to my stash. And, I made this card:

For the focal point of my card I used Wplus9 Fresh Cut Containers with it's matching dies, mixing with sentiment from Wplus9 Strictly Sentiments 5. The pretty patterned paper is from Dear Lizzy Daydreamer 6x6 paper pad. And for a touch of festivity I added a few spotlight/disco gold sequins.

Hope you enjoy today's card. I plan to play with this gorgeous set a lot! Thank you so much for swinging by here. May your Thursday be a great one.

In case you missed it, all new Lawn Fawn is now available too!  See it here.  Make sure you check in on our Facebook page, too!  We share news, updates, inspiration, and the occasional giveaway!
