Zen Bouquet Hello Card on Vellum with Gold Embossing

This is the third card made with the Honey Bee Stamp Zen Bouquet.  This time  I decided to let the gold embossing on vellum be the star of the show and really liked how it turned out.

I created a side folding A2 cardbase from Gina K. Designs 120# Turquoise Sea Cardstock and then added Ranger Multi Medium Matte glue to the back of the bouquet on the embossed lines and adhered it in the upper left corner of the card.  This left enough room in the lower right for the sentiment from Concord & 9th Hello Lovely, which was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. The excess image hanging over the edges of the card were trimmed with a pair of scissors.

As a final embellishment Martha Stewart Butterfly and Three Butterflies Punches were used to add three butterflies from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock .  A clean and simple card.

Adore You Hello Card

I try to send out cards within a month of someone new moving into our church boundaries.  It’s fun to sending a welcoming word and hopefully make them feel more comfortable attending.  This past month there were two families who moved in.  I used the same Altenew Adore Stamp and Die, using a different color scheme for each one.  The first is blue and red, two of my favorite colors.  The second is pink and teal, which are beautiful together.

I stamped all the images at one time in my MISTI onto Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I then colored them with Copic Markers (colors listed below).  Once the coloring was done I stamped them again with Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed them with Hero Arts Detailed Clear Embossing Powder.

The flowers and leaves were were cut with the matching dies and then arranged the way I liked them.  To adhere them to the card I used Glad Press ‘n Seal to keep them all together for adhering to the card front.

I die cut a quarter sheet of the Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock using a My Favorite Things Wonky Rectangle.  I placed the flower arrangement on the rectangle to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Concord & 9th Hello Lovely with Hero Hues Black Ink.  Next, I turned the flower arrangement on the Press ‘n Seal over and applied Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to all except the center flower and placed it on the card front.  The center flower was adhered using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape for added interest and dimension.

A side folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8″ smaller than the wonky rectangle and then Nuvo Adhesive was used to adhered it to the cardbase.

Woot – It’s Your Birthday Masculine Card

I love the way this masculine birthday card turned out.  The colorful background was created using the Concord & 9th Turnabout Sprinkles Stamp.  The colors were inspired by a flower arrangement I recently saw.  The CZ Designs Birthday Palooze open sentiment allows for you to color it to match the design.

The turnabout stamp is easy to use and the cupcake from Avery Elle’s Cupcakes makes a great masculine focal image.  It was stamped with Altenew Inks (listed below) and then highlighted using Copic Markers.  Once the cupcake coloring was complete it was cut using the matching dies.

The sprinkles background was die cut using a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX die and Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back for dimension.

The sentiment was stamped with Altenew Crimson Ink and Colored with Copic Markers (listed below) to create an ombre effect.  It was then die cut with the matching die, and then again four additional time with white cardstock.  Each word die cut was adhered together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  The secondary sentiment was stamped on Gina K. Designs Red Hot 120# Cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  It was cut into a thin strip to be added under the die cut sentiment.  3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the cupcake and sentiment strip.

An A2 cardbase was made from the same red cardstock and the sprinkles background was adhered to the front with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  All focal images and sentiment items were adhered to the front of the cardbase with the same liquid adhesive and the card was done.

Concord & 9th Hello Lovely Birthday Card for Diane

I am the oldest of five girls in my family.  I also have two brothers, so I come from a wonderful, large, happy family.  My sister Diane’s birthday is on March 13 and her favorite colors are purple, blue, and hot pink.  I knew she would love a card made from Concord & 9th’s Hello Lovely stamp set and it turned out beautifully.

I began by stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock.  The Copic colors used are listed below. I used a light blue to outline the image and I think it really makes it pop. Once the coloring was complete I ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot with Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle.

For the sentiment I used Technique Tuesday’s Say it Happy die, which also includes a shadow for the word die.  I cut the shadow from Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock and the “happy” from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock.  The two were adhered together using Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  I placed the word die on the focal image to determine placement of the secondary sentiment, which is from Hero Arts Happy stamp set and was stamped with Hero Hues India Ink Black.

A top folding A2 Cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was added to the back of the focal panel, which was glued to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.   Sequins were added from Pretty Pink Posh Sugarplum Mix and Doodlebug Lilac Sequins.  A little sparkle and shine was added with Clear Wink of Stella and the card was done.

Concord & 9th Hello Lovely Sympathy

This is the second card I made with Concord & 9th Hello Lovely Stamp.  It made a beautiful sympathy card.

This time I kept the colors more subdued, mainly keeping the flowers white with very light purple accents.  Supplies and Copic colors used are listed below.

After completing the coloring I die cut the image with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles.  I then cut another rectangle from Gina K. Designs 120# Black cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle and adhered the two together with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

For the sentiment I die cut the Winnie & Walter the Big, the Bold, and Comfort Sympathy from Paper Accents Silver Mirror Cardstock and three times from scrap black cardstock. These were adhered together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Adhesive Spray.  I placed the cutout sentiment on the focal image to determine placement of the secondary sentiment, which is from Altenew’s Sentiments & Quotes, stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Silver Embossing Powder.

The focal image panel was adhered to a side folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Darice Adhesive Fun Foam for added dimension.  The die cut word was attached to the card front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Concord & 9th Hello Lovely Birthday

Recently Concord & 9th came out with a beautiful stamp set called Hello Lovely.  Below is the first card that were made with this stamp.

I began by stamping the image on 80# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, since I would be coloring the image with Copic Markers.  The colors used are listed below.

For the sentiment I die cut the Serendipity Happy Die from American Crafts Gold Glitter Cardstock and three times from scrap black cardstock. These were adhered together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Adhesive Spray.  I placed the cutout sentiment on the card to determine placement of the secondary sentiment which is from Simon Says Stamp Birthday Wishes and stamped with Hero Hues India Ink Black.  The die cut word was attached to the card front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.
