Three Scoops Birthday I and II

I made two cards from this Pinterest Digital Stamp from Bridscards.com.  It was printed with a Laser Printer, die cut with the Silhouette Cameo and the PIXScan Mat and colored with Copic Markers E59, E27, E57; RV11, RV02, RV10; G00, BG11, G000; R29, R27; E37, E33.

An A2 top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  A small rectangle of pink and silver foil cardstock from Momenta Cardstock Carton 12 x 12 Paper Pack was die cut using the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangle.  Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is one of my grand-daughter’s favorites, so dots of chocolate chips were added to the mint ice cream.  I made an error coloring the image with Copic Markers: E59, E27, E57; RV11, RV02, RV10; G00, BG11, G000; R29, R27; E37, E33, so it was printed a second time and the ice cream was fussy cut from the cone and 3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back for dimension

The sentiment was stamped with Lawn Distress Oxide Ink to the bottom of the card front and then it was dry embossed using the Cuttlebug Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

A very simple card to make.

Daisy Background Birthday Card

When I printed this Pinterest digital image on Neena Classic Crest Cardstock  the resolution was very good, but I decided to see what I could do with it to make it look okay.

One thing I decided to do was the color the background a light blue, this helped even out the pixilation.

Next I decided to color the flowers in a rainbow of different Copic Marker colors (YR12, YR14, YR16, YR68, R17; YR38, YR15, YR18; Y17, Y08, Y02; Y08, Y02, Y11; RV06, RV04, RV02; R14, RV13, RV11; R20, R22, R20; R08, R05, R02; R39, E37, R27; YG67, YG17, YG03; BG000, BG0000).

Next I cut down the image so it was smaller using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die.

A black rectangle 1/8” larger than the die cut image was adhered to the back of the focal image with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

The last thing was to have a sentiment that took a little more real-estate on the card.  I used a sentiment from My Favorite Things Celebrate You, Stamped it on Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  Adding dimension to the sentiment by adding 3M ½” Foam Tape to the back.

Everything was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.

California Poppy Happy Birthday I and II

When I found these digital poppy corners I wasn’t sure if I was going to use both or one on a card.  As you can see I decided to use only one and made two separate cards.  The different colored matting gives a different feel to each of the cards.

There are many different colors for poppies, but my favorite is the orange red, with the deep black center.  That is how I colored these poppies with Copic Markers: YG97, YG95, YG93; YR18, YR16, YR12.  I printed them with my HP Laser Printer on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then cut out the outline using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.

The poppy flowers were laid on some Darice Sticky Back Foam and traced, fussy cut, and adhered to the back of the image for dimension.  A rectangle of the Classic Crest Cardstock was cut using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle and the flowers were placed in the corner to determine where to stamp the sentiment.  I wanted to use large sentiments for the cards so I used “happy birthday” from Mama Elephant Birthday Wishes for one, and “happy birthday to you” from My Favorite Things Handwritten Happiness.  Both were stamped with Hero Hues India Ink Black using the MISTI.

Black and orange rectangles were added to the back of the focal images that 1/8” larger than the stitched rectangle.  The two were adhered together using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  Each panel was adhered to a top folding A2 Cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the flower focal image was adhered to the front using the same glue.

A Sakura White Gel Pen was added to the center of one of the flower arrangement and the card was done.

One in a Million Birthday Card

The Clearly Besotted One in a Million Stamp is made of two corner flower arrangements.  Clearly Besotted is no longer making dies for their stamps, but that isn’t an issue when you have the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  It is a lot less time consuming that fussy cutting the images out with scissors.

I Stamped both flower corners onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then cut out the images.  They were colored with Copic Markers: BG15, BG13; BG0000; YG17, YG03; G46, G82; B95, B93, B91; YR21, Y08; YR24, YR23; R85, R83, R81; V15, V12.

They were placed on some Darice Sticky Back Foam Sheet and traced with a pencil, fussy cut with scissors, and adhered to the back of the focal images.  I decided to arrange them on a landscape A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.

A rectangle of Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock was due cut using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle  Gina K. Designs 120# Back Cardstock was cut 1/8” larger and adhered to the back using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  It was adhered to the cardbase using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then the sentiment was stamped in the middle of the cardbase using Hero Hues India Ink Black and a sentiment from My Favorite Things Handwritten Happiness.

The two floral focal images were adhered into two opposing corners, gluing them in place with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  For a final embellishment Queen & Co. Candy Shoppe Jellies in Yellow, Pink, and Blue were scatter on the card front and the card was done.

Hobnail Pitcher Birthday Tulip Card

I like the image from Power Poppy Tulips in a Hobnail Pitcher.  Although we are far  beyond tulip season it still make a love card.  I printed the image using my HP Laser Jet Printer onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then die cut around the image using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  The image was colored with the following Copic Markers: R85, R83, R81; R22, R21, R20; Y08, Y02; YG67, YG17, YG03, YG01; C7, C5, C3, C2, C1.

I decided to die cut a rectangle from the same cardstock using a My Favorite Things Stitched Shapes Rectangle and then dry embossed it using the Cuttlebug Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  I thought it complemented the hobnails in the pitcher beautifully.  A scrap of white cardstock was colored with the darkest cool gray makers and dried with the Marvy Embossing Heat Tool.  The sentiment from My Favorite Things Celebrate You was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed using Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back to add dimension.

To assemble the card Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back of the polka dot rectangle.  The focal image was traced on some leftover Sticky Back Foam and the two were adhered together.  The sentiment was added to the lower third of the cardbase with 3M ½” Foam Tape and the focal image was adhered above it using Ranger Multi Medium Matte and the card was done.

Sugar n’ Spice Happy Birthday Cora

This card was made for Cora, who is turning twelve this year and joining the young women organization in our church.  We are excited to have her join us.  Her favorite color is blue.

The image for this card is La-La Land Crafts Sugar n’ Spice Marci.  This is a digital image and was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then cut with the Silhouette Cameo and the PIXScan Mat.  It was colored with Copic Markers (colors listed below).

 

To set off the image a heart was die cut from Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock using the Spellbinders Classic Hearts Die.  It was then dry embossed with the DoCrafts Small Polka Hearts Embossing Folder.  I went through my stash of cardstock and found some blue and white polka dot paper.  It was die cut using the WPlus9 Gift Card Layers Rectangle Die and adhered to the front of a top folding A2 Cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  The heart die was adhered to the front using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

The sentiment consists of a Happy die cut three times from 80# white cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy Stamp and Die set.  The secondary sentiment is from My Favorite Things Happy Everything Stamp with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detailed White Embossing Powder.

3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back of the focal image and it was then adhered to the embossed heart and the card was done.

Spring Birthday Annabel

I love this background paper.  There is something about the combination of blues and purples that is very appealing to me, and combined with a crisp white it is a lovely card.

This card is for another young woman who is turning twelve by the name of Abigail.  Her favorite color is purple.  For her card the La-La Land Crafts Birthday Cake Molli Digital Image was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then cut with the Silhouette Cameo and the PIXScan Mat.  It was colored with Copic Markers (listed below).

I found this wonderful purple and blue patterned paper in the Doodlebug Polar Pals 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  It was die cut using the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and adhered to the front of an A2 top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

To set off the focal image an oval frame was cut from 80# white cardstock using the My Favorite Things Oval Frame.  3M ½” Foam Tape was cut in half to make it narrower and was added to the back.  If you remove both sides of the backing paper it is easy to bend it around a shape.

The oval was adhered to the card front and then the focal image was laid on top to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Winnie & Walter Sentimental Birthday with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back of the focal image and it was adhered in the middle of the oval and the card was done.

Spring Birthday Annabel

I graduated High School in 1970, flower power is a sign of my time.  When I saw this stamp I knew I need to have it.

This card is for Annabel.  She got a new little puppy a few months ago and is in love with it, so I decided to add this cute little dog from My Favorite Things Our Story.  The focal image is another digital stamp from La-La Land Crafts called Spring Molli.  Once it was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and the dog image stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto they were die cut with the Silhouette Cameo using the PIXScan mat.

It was colored with blue Copic Markers since that is her favorite color (see below).  I found the blue patterned paper in the Recollections Bright and Basic 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  To set off the focal image a frame was cut from the 80# White Cardstock using the Mama Elephant Madison Avenue Frame.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back for dimension.

The sentiment is from C.C. Designs Amy R Great Birthday Greetings. The patterned paper was cut just smaller than the frame and the sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  The patterned paper was then added to the back of the frame and then adhered to the front of a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.

The focal image and the dog were adhered to the card front using 3M ½” Foam Tape and the card was done.

Patterned Paper Gold Mirror Birthday Balloon

Maybe it’s because my husband’s favorite color is blue that I make so many of my masculine cards with that color.  I love the Craft Smith Indigo Gold 12 x 12 Paper Pad because it has some patterned paper that make great masculine cards.  A little shine, great patterned paper, and wonderful word art and you have a great card.

For this card I used a chevron patterned paper and die cut it with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle.  I cut a rectangle of Gina K. Designs 120# Navy Cardstock 1/8” larger and adhered the two together with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut with the same rectangle die and adhered to the back of the patterned paper.

The sentiment from Penny Black’s Awesome dies was cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock and two additional times from navy cardstock.  They were adhered together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive and then adhered to the bottom of the patterned paper with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  A balloon and string were also cut from the gold mirror cardstock using My Favorite Things Party Balloons die set.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back of the balloon and then the balloon and string were adhered to the card front using Ranger Multi Medium Matte.

An A2 top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image rectangle was adhered with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.  Simple and easy to make.

Brush Stroke Messages Diagonal Background Birthday Card

This card was also inspired by Nina-Marie Trapani.  I stamped the longer brush strokes from the Simon Says Stamp Brush Stroke Messages on a diagonal using light and dark blue, with a splash of yellow in the narrowest brush stroke.  I used the same colors to stamp three balloons from My Favorite Things Party Balloon stamp and die.

To ensure that the sentiment strip would match the card, I used the darkest ink and ran it across a scrap of white cardstock.  I waited for it to be complete dry before stamping the sentiment from My Favorite Things Twice the Wishes with VersaMark Ink and heat embossing it with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.

Once all the design elements were completed the striped paper was die cut using the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangle.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8” smaller and adhered to the back.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back of two of the balloons and white DFN Craft Thread was tied to each balloon. The balloons were adhered to the stripped panel and the balloon strips were wrapped around the bottom of the rectangle and adhered with scotch tape.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back of the sentiment strip and it was adhered to the bottom of the focal image.

The entire panel was adhered to the front of a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the card was done.
