Deep Pink Large Flower Thinking of You

I’ve used this image previously but this time I printed it on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer and colored it with Copic Markers. The flower is a corner image and so I die cut it with a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle. It was matted with some black cardstock. Darice Foam Sheet was cut 1/8″ smaller to add dimension to the focal image rectangle.

The sentiment was stamped using Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink in the lower right. The focal image rectangle was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase with liquid glue and the card was done. A fairly quick and easy card.

Purple Dahlia Thinking of You

I have this pretty Dahlia image from Pinterest that I decided to print with a laser printer and color with Copic Markers.

The image doesn’t have leaves and so I pulled out Altenew Beautiful Flowers and stamped it in Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink and then die cut them with the matching die. They were glued to flower with liquid glue. To add dimension to the image I traced it on some fun foam and fussy cut it 1/8″ smaller and adhered to the back with liquid glue.

I die cut a rectangle using a Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Rectangle and adhered it to a side folding A2 cardbase with dotliner adhesive.

The focal image was laid on the card front to determine where to stamp the sentiment from My Favorite Things Peaceful Wildflowers with Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink. The focal image was adhered to the card front with liquid glue and the card was done.

Hey There Cupcake

When you purchased $60 of product this month at My Favorite Things you got this great “Hey There, Cupcake” die. I wanted to use it for the final cupcake using the monthly card kit.

I found this great striped cardstock from Lawn Fawn and used a stitched rectangle from My Favorite Things to size it to leave a thin white border around it when adhered to the front of an A2 cardbase. I decided to pull out my new Ellen Hutson Essential Rectangle die and create a thin border that I would add to the card front. I cut it three times and glued them together use liquid glue.

The cupcake liner was cut from some green and white striped paper from the same paper pack. The cupcake frosting was cut from white cardstock. A C1 Copic Marker was used to add shadows to the layers of frosting. The two were adhered together using a thin line of liquid glue at the top of the cupcake liner. Foam Tape was added to the back to add dimension when it was adhered to the card front on a slight angle.

The Hey There Cupcake die was cut three times from the same white cardstock and adhered together with liquid glue. It was then glued above and below the cupcake.

The final embellishment was to add Nuvo Crystal Drops in multi colors to the frosting to add sprinkles.

The cupcake liner was cut from some red and white polka dot paper in the same paper pack and 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back for dimension.

Sweet Birthday Wishes

For this card I decided to cut a rectangle of white cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Scalloped Stitched Border die, creating a narrow rectangle. Next another rectangle was cut with a paper trimmer one inch wider.

The sentiment and cupcake were placed on the scalloped rectangle to determine placement. The cupcake frosting was die cut and the shaker pouch was adhered using liquid glue. The sentiment was stamped with Memento London Fog ink. Pink beads were added to the shaker, dotliner adhesive was added to the back of the white scalloped rectangle, ensuring that it went all around the cupcake topper so that the beads won’t fall out. The striped rectangle was then adhered to the scalloped rectangle.

A top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image rectangle was adhered to the front with dotliner adhesive.

The final embellishment was to add Nuvo Crystal Drops Bubblegum Blush around the sentiment and the card was done.

Have a Totally Delicious Birthday

This is the second card I made with My Favorite Things Icing on the Cupcake Card Kit. This time I decided to use a trio of cupcakes on the card.

I decided to use the My Favorite Things Happy Birthday Background Stamp. I used Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink to stamp, which gave a very subtle background for the focal images.

I pulled out some great striped paper from Lawn Fawn’s Really Rainbow Paper Pack and die cut the cupcake liners. The cupcake frosting was die cut from white cardstock and colored with Copic Markers to make the striped paper. The two were adhered together with a thin line of liquid glue and foam tape was added to the back for dimension.

I originally thought about using a black sentiment strip, but since the background was stamped in gray I decided to use a dark gray cardstock, stamped with VersaMark and heat set with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.

Foam tape was added to the back of the sentiment strip, which grounded the cupcakes. There was a little too much space at the top of the focal image, so I used the banner in the die set, colored it with Copic Markers and stamped a secondary sentiment with VersaMark Ink and heat set with white embossing powder.

The final embellishment was to add Ranger Crystal Stickles on the frosting.

Wishing You a Sweet Day Cupcake

I recently purchased My Favorite Things Icing on the Cupcake Card . I like cupcakes because they are gender neutral and you can make some great guy cards with them. This is the first card I made with the kit.

I pulled out some great patterned paper from Lawn Fawn and accented the red and yellow in the striped paper for the cupcake, which was cut with a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle.

I die cut the cupcake frosting with some yellow paper from the paper pack and the cupcake liner from red patterned paper. I added shadows to both with Copic Markers.

I die cut a small rectangle using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle and placed the sentiment and cupcake where I wanted them to determine where to cut the top of the cupcake for the shaker pouch.

I pulled out some seed beads I had in my stash to fill the shaker. I adhered the shaker pouch with liquid glue and gave it a few minutes to dry. To fill the pouch I turned over the rectangle with the pouch and filled it with the beads. I took the cupcake frosting and placed it back into the rectangle of yellow cardstock and adhered them together with Scotch Tape. I added glue to the back of the rectangle (be sure to add glue around the pouch to ensure the beads do not escape the shaker) and adhered the yellow cupcake frosting to the rectangle, ensuring that they two panels align correctly.

When I went to adhered the focal image rectangle it got a little lost on the striped paper, so I took another piece of cardstock a little larger than the focal image and colored the edges with the same Copic Marker used to give shadow to the cupcake liner and adhered the two together to dotliner adhesive.

Craft foam was added to the back of the focal image and it was adhered to the card front on an angle with liquid glue.

The final embellishment was to scatter Nuvo Crystal drops in red and yellow around the cupcake.

Mid Century Frame Hello

This is another quick and easy card made from pretty patterned paper and a couple of die cuts.

A rectangle of the patterned paper was cut using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle and adhered to a cardbase made from Gina K. Designs Base Weight Ivory Cardstock.

The Mid Century Frame from Altenew was cut from some gold mirror cardstock and some ivory cardstock. The gold frame was adhered to the front of the patterned paper rectangle with Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive. The ivory center of the other die was was added to the golden frame. This created a neutral background for the flowers, which were fussy cut from some leftover patterned paper and added to the center of the frame with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape. The leaves were cut from scraps of green cardstock using the dies from Altenew’s Adore You. Shading was added to both with Copic markers.

The “hello” was die cut from gold mirror cardstock and adhered directly to the patterned paper with liquid glue. The final embellishment was to add some Nuvo Pale Gold Crystal Drops and the card was done.

If Friends Were Flowers Hello

I had a leftover gold oval from another card I created that I decided to use on this card, which is quick and easy to create.

I pulled out some green patterned paper and die cut a rectangle using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle. It was adhered with dotliner adhesive to a top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock. The gold oval was then adhered to the center with the same adhesive.

The focal image is from LDRS Creative If Friends Were Flowers and was stamps on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored with Copic Markers and die cut with the coordinating die. 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the flower image and it was adhered to the left of the oval.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Happy Hello dies and was cut from a scrap of dark green cardstock and again from black sticky back foam and adhered to the right of the focal image and the card was done.

Fantasy Floral Hello

Since I had some leftover flower cardstock leftover from my previous card I decided to use it again for this one. However, this time I decided to use Ellen Hutson’s Oval Essential dies.

I first die cut a rectangle from the patterned paper using a guillotine cutter to 3 3/4″ x 5″. An Ellen Hutson Essential Oval die was used to cut an oval from gold mirror cardstock, which was adhered to the center of the patterned paper and then both were adhered to a top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs Base Weight Ivory Cardbase.

For this card I decided to cut another oval from base weight ivory cardstock and added it to the center of the gold frame. This gave a neutral base for adding the sentiment.

I pulled out the Altenew Fantasy Floral dies to create a focal image on the front of the card. Scraps of paper were used to cut the layers of the flower and then Copic Markers added some shading. The flower and leaves were added to the lower left of the oval.

The sentiment was cut from gold mirror cardstock. The secondary sentiment was stamped and then the “hello” die cut was adhered using liquid glue.
