Card Share

Hello and welcome to today's blog post which should have went up on Sunday but with all the festivities for my Hubby and then a fairly busy work week I haven't had time to post. This is the Father's Day card I created with my son to give to his Daddy. The Eastern Palace Specialty DSP was a great choice for this card and I love that I could fussy cut along the design to add some interest to the design. I know this is a masculine card but a little ribbon never hurt anyone.

I have used some retired products but in my defense they weren't retired when I created this card. All of the products used just work so well together and sometimes you just have to use up your stash. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Additional supplies: ATG tape runner, Scotch 3M foam tape, clear blocks, Recollections sticker sheet for the inside sentiment.


I hope you have enjoyed today's project and will check back often for more inspiration. Thank you for visiting..

Oh, Hello Friend

Hello and welcome to today's post. Do you have a friend who needs a little cheering up? Do you just want to say hi to someone you haven't spoken to in a while? I have a card project for you.
I am using the brand New Oh So Eclectic bundle and I did a little stenciling, die-cutting and ink splattering. I love the leaves and the beautiful flowers that are stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink with centers inked in Crushed Curry ink. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

.

Additional supplies: ATG, water, paint brush, clear blocks

1. Create a card base from Crushed Curry card stock to measures 5 ½" x 8 ½" and score at 4 ¼".

2. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to measure 4" x 5 ¼" and sponge the edges with Sweet Sugarplum ink.

3. With a scrap of Whisper White card stock stamp the leaf image 3 times using Emerald Envy ink and then stamp 3 flower images using Memento Tuxedo black ink and then with the 2nd stamp in Sweet Sugarplum ink. Die-cut the images with the matching framelits. Stamp the flower centers in Crushed Curry ink and die cut.

4. Using the diamond-shaped framelit, make a mask and use a sponge to ink the image onto the Whisper White panel.

5. Adhere the leaves (fine-tip glue pen) and flowers (using dimensionals) along the bottom and right side of the panel.

6. Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White card stock using Sweet Sugarplum ink. Cut the sentiment down and then adhere to a scrap of Sweet Sugarplum card stock. Adhere the sentiment between the masked diamonds and center flower.

7. Splatter the focal panel with Sweet Sugarplum/Water mixture. Cut off any image overhang and adhere the focal panel to the card front.

Butterfly Basics birthday card

Hello and welcome to today's post where I will be sharing a card using up a lot of the newly retired products I still have on hand. I used this as a birthday card but I'm sure if you change the sentiment out it could be used for any occasion. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.



Stampin' Up supplies:
Additional supplies:
ATG tape runner, Scotche 3M foam tape, MISTI

1. Create a card base from Sweet Sugarplum card stock to measures 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼”.

2. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to measure 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment using Sweet Sugarplum ink and adhere to the card front.

3. Next you’ll need to cut a piece of DSP to 2” x 4” and adhere to the top of the Whisper White panel.

4. Cut a piece of the Ruched Ribbon and wrap around the seam of the DSP and White card stock panel.

5. Die-cut a scalloped oval from Sweet Sugarplum card stock and then die-cut a plain oval from Whisper White card stock. Stamp the focal image on the white oval using the Sweet Sugarplum and Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write markers, sponge the edges with Sweet Sugarplum ink and then adhere to the scalloped oval. Pop it all up using 3M foam tape and adhere to the card front.

You're Cool (Feminine) card

Happy Saturday everyone. Since I've been on a masculine kick lately I thought I'd use most of the same products from the previous project and make it girly. I used some dies, DSP and ink sponging to create this card and the scalloped circle adds a little feminine touch. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Stampin' Up Supplies:

3. Next you’ll need to cut a piece of DSP about 1 ½” x 5 ¼” and sponge the edges. Adhere this strip to the left side of the Whisper White panel.

4. Die-cut a plain Whisper White circle, sponge the edges and stamp the ice cream in the center.

5. Die-cut a scalloped circle from Peekaboo Peach card stock and adhere to the Whisper White circle. Place all of this centered on the DSP panel.
