Jack-o-Lantern November 11, 2017

Here’s a quick and easy jack-o-lantern card to make, which can also be made as a pumpkin for Fall/Thanksgiving cards.

For this card, I started out using Amber Mica Metallic cardstock. I used the Pumpkin Fold-It die set to create the card.  Included in the set are various shapes for the face and layering pieces for the pumpkin.  The stem is cut out of Kraft/Brown bag cardstock, and the face is my favorite Epic Black cardstock.  I inked the pumpkin with Memento Tangelo ink and then with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink.  The card front is embossed using an embossing folder, which gives it a little extra dimension.  Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Here’s a quick birthday card that could be used or adjusted for either gender.

For this card, I used Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock as the base.  Then, I used Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide to stamp “Have a fantastic” on an angle across the card base, and I used some scraps of teal cardstock to die cut the word “birthday” and the shadow from The Stamps of Life Birthday Statement Set.  Obviously, the stamping and die cutting can be changed to any colors to suit any personality style.

For those who celebrate it, I hope you are enjoying a wonderful Labor Day weekend with friends and family.  It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I hope you enjoy this card.

For this card, I foiled some Eclipse Black cardstock using an Anna Griffin hot foil plate and the Go Press and Foil machine.  I am in love with the result!  The rose is layered on a piece of the ever-delicious Heavy Weight Clear Vellum which cuts like a dream!  Don’t be afraid to try it because it’s super thick.  The two die cut layers are on top of a piece of paper from my stash, attached to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!  Today, I’m sharing an adorable cupcake card.

20170513_011342_resized

For this card, I used a new die set.  It is a Sizzix die designed by Stephanie Barnard called the Cupcake Fold-it die set, and I think it is just the cutest!  This is the second card I’ve made with it since I got the set about a week ago.  It is perfect for birthdays, congratulatory notes, or just to brighten someone’s day.  For the card base, I used Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I used it for the card front as well. The way this die is designed, you can create either a top-folding or a side-folding card with it.  However, you will be missing a small portion of the die cut because of the fold in the card, so you do need to cut an additional card front unless the missing piece doesn’t bother you.  The cupcake liner is cut from some scraps of blue and grey paper, but that delicious chocolate-y frosting is cut from the equally delicious brown bag kraft paper.

Hello, I hope you are enjoying your Saturday!

20170401_100325_blog

For today’s card, I’m sharing one of my favorite styles of card – a Flip-It!  I think they are just a lot of fun, and I know my nieces and nephew enjoy receiving them because they have moving parts.  I couldn’t resist the sheep image… March goes in like a lion and out like a lamb, right??  It sure did for us this year!

For the card base, I used Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock.  It is nice and heavy, and the score lines create nice, clean creases.  I also used Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock for the sheep, which is stamped with Tuxedo Black ink, die cut, and colored with Copics.  For an accent, the strip along the side of the card is cut from Epic Black cardstock.  The green paper on the sides of the card is some origami paper from my stash, and the yellow textured cardstock is from my stash as well.

The stamps and dies I used are new for me.  They are by Stephanie Barnard, one of Sizzix’s designers, called Sheep2Stamp and the matching Sheep2Stamp die set.  Inside the card, I also used the Elegant Labels framelit dies to cut out solid shapes for the other side and stamped “Just for Ewe.”  The flip-it card die set is the Elegant Flip-it Card Set and I used it in conjunction with the Elegant Labels framelits.

For this card, I started out with a card base of Neenah Solar White cardstock.  Layered on top of that is some Pool cardstock, which is a gorgeous blue.  the ornaments are watercolor paper that have been sprinkled with Brusho in Sea Green and Alizarin Crimson.  I used some black thread to tie bows to the tops of the ornaments, and the sentiment is from the My Sentiments Exactly Holiday Squares set.  The dies are Crafter’s Companion Die’Sire ornament dies called Snowflake Bauble, Ornate Bauble, and Teardrop Bauble.

Happy Saturday!  Time for another Christmas card… I really like the way the tree pops on this card.

20161106_001103_resized

For this card, I stared out using Sea Green Brusho on some watercolor paper.  I cut out the tree using the Crafter’s Companion Die’sire Seasonal Tree die, and then I used some scrap red paper for the pot the tree is in.  The card base is Neenah Solar White, and the black background paper is my favorite textured black paper, Classic Linen Epic Black.  The sentiment is heat embossed using a stamp from My Sentiments Exactly set Rockin’ Around with Tsukeniko white embossing powder.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!  For today’s post, I’m sharing a card I made for my parents’ anniversary.

20161029_001104_resized

The card base is the ever-gorgeous Rose Quartz Mica/Metallic on a card base of Neenah Solar White.    The heart images are from the Spectrum Noir Colorista In Full Bloom coloring pad, colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  The love die cut is from a Die-Versions die, cut out of regular card stock covered with washi tape.  I thought the card was finished, but it was missing a little extra bling.  In the final version, I added some small 3-D heart stickers from a very old K&Company set.

Good morning, everyone!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  Today, I’m sharing a thank you card I made for a very dear friend of mine with the help of some gorgeous specialty cardstock.

20160916_225525_resized

For this card, I went a little bigger than my usual A2 size, and this is done as a 5×7.  The image of the perfume bottle is from the Spectrum Noir Colorista marker pad called In Full Bloom, and it is colored with a combination of the Spectrum Noir and Colorista markers.  My card base is Solar White Classic Linen cardstock, and I matted the image using one of my favorites from the Spring Premium Package, Vintage Silver Lustre text weight.  The Thank You is cut using a Die-Versions die from Greystone, which is also from the Classic Linen line.  Thanks for stopping by!
