Hopeful Flowers Springtime Birthday Card

I like to take a smaller flower image from a stamp and change the look by stamping it multiple times.  This image is from the Gina K. Designs Hopeful Flowers stamp set and was stamped five times with differing heights to fill the entire front of a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of 80# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock.  The image was colored with Derwent Inktense Pencils in springtime colors. I really like the way it turned out.

I began by stamping the image with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink and then colored everything with the Inktense Pencils listed below.  I only purchased the 36 count pencil set, which doesn’t have any pink, but the more I use these pencils the more I like the results and so I purchased the 72 count pencil set today and well try and sell my slightly used 36 count set on eBay.  Once the coloring was complete I ink blended the card with Distress Tumbled Glass at the top and Mowed Lawn at the bottom.

I haven’t been able to find Gamsol for blending these pencils, but I did find some Masterpiece Odorless Mineral Spirits at Hobby Lobby and they seem to work well.  I saw Amy Rysavy take a small jar and put a piece of sponge in the bottom and then filled it with the Gamsol so that it was easily accessible for dipping and wetting the blending stumps.

Once the coloring and blending were completed I used the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangle and die cut the image. I wanted to enhance the colored spring flowers panel with a slight larger green rectangle.  I searched my drawer of green cardstock scraps and found a green chevron glitter cardstock from Paper Studio Eat Cake which was the perfect color and added the right touch.  A rectangle was cut 3/16″ larger and the focal image was adhered using Sookwang Scor-Tape Adhesive Tape.  Darice Sticky Backed Fun Foam was also added with the same adhesive tape.  An A2 side folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and then the focal image was added by removing the protective paper on the back of the fun foam.

Using the same green paper the word happy was cut using the Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy dies for the sentiment.  It was then cut again out of sticky backed fun foam and then adhered together for added dimension. Using a scrap of Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock the secondary sentiment was stamped using VersaMark Ink and then heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. Both sentiments were adhered to the card front using Tombo Mono Multi Glue. As a finishing touch Triveni Crafts Multi Color Rhinestones were scattered and adhered using Ranger Multi Medium Matte.

Farm Life Masculine Birthday Card

This is another masculine birthday card using a Gina K. Designs stamp set. I like the final outcome, but as you will see with the second image below I originally had completed the card without any coloring.  I had tried to color it with Copic Markers but felt it detracted from the rustic feel of the image and so it was stamped a second time.  Later in the day it was still sitting on my desk when I was working on another card that I colored with Derwent Inktense Colored Pencils.  Since I felt the design was lacking something to make it pop, and colored pencils give a grainier look, I thought I would give them a try with this card and felt it made all the difference.

I stamped the image on a quarter of an 8 1/2 x 11 80# Ivory Cardstock from Gina K. Designs with a combination of Memento Rich Cocoa and Deseret Sand Ink.  The sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Stylish Sentiments: Birthday stamp set and was stamped with both of the inks as well.  The focal image panel was die cut with the second largest Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Stackable Rectangles.  I had planned to put the image on some kraft cardstock, but the browns did not blend well with one another and so I ink blended both Rich Cocoa and Deseret Sand on the Gina K. Designs 120# Kraft Cardstock, but something was still missing, so I die cut the kraft cardstock with another rectangle using the largest rectangle for the die set and ink blended the edges.  I will say that Memento Ink does not ink blend well and will keep that in mind for future cards.  I decided to use a cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# Dark Chocolate Cardstock and liked the way all of the elements looked together. The focal image was adhered to the kraft cardstock with Sookwang Be Creative Adhesive Tape and then Darice Sticky Backed Fun Foam was added to the back of the kraft rectangle, which was then adhered to the dark chocolate cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done, until I added color using the Derwent Inktense Pencils later in the day.

C. C. Design Bouquet Birthday

When I saw this beautiful tulip bouquet from C.C. Design I knew it would make a lovely card.  I’m so glad that I purchased it, I’m sure I’ll use it again and again.

I cut an outline of the C. C. Designs Bouquet image from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and then stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The image was then colored with Copic Markers (colors used are listed below).

To create a visual background for the image an oval was cut using My Favorite Things Pierced Oval STAX and ink blended with Distress Stormy Sky Ink using the Inkylicious Ink Bending Brush to create a soft sky color to the oval.  Another oval was cut out of Darice Adhesive Fun Foam and trimmed to be slightly smaller than the ink blended oval and attached to the back. The bouquet cutout was then adhered to the oval using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

A rectangle was cut from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock and ink blended on the edges, softly fading to the center.  It was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  The oval was then adhered to the card front using the same glue on the fun foam.

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Inside & Out Birthday stamp set and was stamped with VersaMark Ink on a strip of Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock and heat embossed with Rangers Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the edges to ensure it was the same level as the bouquet and then the sentiment was adhered to the bottom of the focal image with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Clear Wink of Stella was added to the flowers for some sparkle and shine and the card was done.

Technique Tuesday Cosmos Birthday

Technique Tuesday Cosmos is another stamp set that I have not used. When I searched for images of cosmos flowers there was an array of different colors, but the one I liked the most was white with deep pink/burgundy tips, so that it what I used for this card.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut an outline of the flower bouquet from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock and then stamped the bouquet with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The flowers were colored with Copic Markers, colors used are listed below.  The flowers I was using for inspiration had gold centers and so I used Stickles Tinsel and liked the sparkle it added.

To provide a frame for the flower focal point I used the Pretty Pink Posh Scalloped Rectangles to cut a frame from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock.  3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was cut in thirds to be narrow enough to add dimension to the frame and not be seen.

An A2 top folding cardbase was made from some burgundy cardstock that I had in my stash.  A rectangle of Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock was cut using Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle and adhered to the cardbase with Tombo Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.

The frame was placed on the rectangle to determine the placement for the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Inside & Out Birthday and was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The frame was adhered to the card front and then 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the bouquet and then centered in the middle of the frame.

La-La-Land Crafts Love You Molli Birthday

La-La-Land Crafts has some great stamps with girl images that I use for birthday cards.  I recently purchased Love You Molli and created a card for a young woman at church with her favorite colors.

I stamped the image on 80# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I then die cut the image using Spellbinders Long Classic Rectangle, but ran it through again to make it a little shorter so it would fit better on the card front.

I colored the image using Copic Markers, colors used are listed below.  I gave her ground to stand on with C3, C2, and C1.

I die cut a panel of 80# White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle and then found a matching blue cardstock and cut it with my paper trimmer to be the same size as an A2 card front (4 1/4 x 5 1/2).  To add some added interest I ran the white rectangle through the Sizzix Big Shot with the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder and then adhered it to the blue rectangle with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Both were then adhered using the same glue to a top folding A2 size cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.

The Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Stylish Sentiments: Birthday and was stamped on a scrap of blue cardstock with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Fine Detail White Embossing Powder and then trimmed to fit across the focal image panel.

Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was cut 1/8″ smaller than the focal image and then both were adhered to the front of the card with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Sequins from Doodlebug Design Swimming Pool and Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Gold were scattered and adhered to the panel with Ranger Multi Medium Matte and the card was done.

Masculine Birthday Card with MFT Chevron Coverup

Some of the most challenging cards for me are masculine birthday cards and I have a lot of guys that I need throughout the year. Graphic elements can make a great card and I really like the look of this card that was made using the negative space leftover from My Favorite Things Chevron Coverup.

First I took a piece of Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and used the Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool to create an ombre of color with the following Distress Inks: Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Fired Brick.  The panel was run through the Big Shot with My Favorite Things Chevron Coverup.

To add dimension three additional coverups were cut using Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and all were adhered together using Elmer’s Adhesive Spray and then adhered to the front of a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Stylish Sentiments: Birthday stamped with VersaMark Ink on Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.  It was then cut into a fishtail banner and adhered to the front of the card with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape

Encouragement Cards: Every Journey Begins with a Single Step

I love making cards, which means that I spend a lot of time making them. I believe that each of us have been sent to earth with gifts and talents from the Lord, and He expects us to use our time and talents wisely.  I also believe that someday we will be accountable for what we have done with what we were given, like the parable of the talents in the New Testament.

As I was contemplating the amount of time I spend making cards, which I believe it is one of my talents, I felt that the Lord wanted me to do more to bless the lives of others with them, people outside of my family and friends.  There are people everywhere who need encouragement and kindness. So, I determined that I would make four cards every month and give them to an abused women and children’s home.  My hope is that they will help them as they begin to make major changes in their lives, and encourage them that they can do hard things for a better future.

Below are the cards I made this month. Each has the same sentiment I printed on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock.

00198For this card I die cut the sentiment panel with the scalloped rectangle from Winnie & Walter Audrey Essentials and adhered it with a Creative Hands Peel & Stick Foam Sheet to a side fold cardbase made from Gina K. Design 120# White Cardstock, cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.

The flowers are from Simon Says Stamp Spring Florals, stamped with VersaMark Ink on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock, and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. I decided to color the images with Copic Markers (I would probably not do that again, since I remember that embossing powder can ruin the nibs). The following colors were used: YR12, YR14, YR15; BG13, BG18; YG01, YG03, YG23; G21, YG63, G94; R11, R12, R02.

The flowers were adhered to the sentiment panel with Tombo Mono Multi Glue, with the exception of the pink flower, which has some 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape under the bloom.

00199

For this card I framed the sentiment with Pretty Pink Posh Scalloped Rectangles out of Gina K. Designs 100# Black Cardstock and adhered it to the sentiment panel with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape. The flower and leaves are from Simon Says Stamp Handwritten Floral Greetings, stamped on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with VersaMark Ink and embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  Both images were colored with Copic Markers Y15, Y17, Y19, G94, G99.

The leaves were glued with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the flower was adhered with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape. The scalloped panel was adhered with Creative Hands Peel & Stick Foam Sheets to a side folding cardbase, made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.

For this card I die cut the sentiment with the Memory Box Stitched Rectangles Die and adhered it with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape to a side folding cardbase, made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.

The flower and leaves are from the Papertrey Ink The Sweet Life stamp set and die.  This is a layering stamp set and I used Altenew Inks Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Mango Smoothie, Forest Glad, and Evergreen.  The leaves were adhered with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the flower was adhered with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape for added dimension.

00197

For this card I die cut the sentiment with the second largest Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Stackable Rectangle die. To frame the sentiment I die cut a black frame from Gina K. Designs 100# Black Cardstock with the My Favorite Things Pierced Rectangle Frames. I placed the sentiment inside the frame and used Scotch Tape on the back to adhere the two together.  I then used a Creative Hands Peel & Stick Foam Sheet to adhere the panel to a side folding cardbase, made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.

The flower and leaves are from the Verve Great Friend Stamp set.  I used VersaMark Ink to stamp the images on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock and embossed them with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The leaves were a solid image and I really like the solid gold look. The flowers were colored with RV11, RV12, and RV14 Copic Markers. I fussy cut them out and adhered the single flower onto the double flower with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape and glued the base flower to the frame with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

Happy Birthday Marigolds

I watch other crafter’s videos and purchase a lot of stamps because I like what I see, the challenge is to use what we purchase. I love the big bold flowers that are in Papertrey Inks Year of Flower series. This time I pulled out the Marigolds.00195

I prepped some Strathmore 140# Cold Press Watercolor paper with an Inkadinkado Embossing Magic Pouch to remove any oils from the paper and stamped the flowers and leaves in VersaMark Ink, applied Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it with the Marvy Embossing Heat Tool.  Distress Inks were used to watercolor images with a Sakura Koi Waterbrush Pen.  The colors used were Wild Honey, Crushed Olive, and Mowed Lawn. I love how vibrant the Wild Honey is on the flowers. Once they were dry I die cut them with the matching dies using the Sizzix Big Shot.

I created a top folding cardbase with Gina K. Designs 120# Ivory Cardstock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored using the ScorBuddy and Simon Says Stamp Small Teflon Bone Folder at 5 1/2″. From the same cardstock I cut a panel with the second largest dies from Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Stackable Rectangles. After figuring out placement of the flowers and leaves I used the Inkadinkado Embossing Magic Pouch to remove any oils from the panel and stamped Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Greetings with Versa Mark Ink, covered it in Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it with the Marvy Embossing Heat Tool.

I applied the smaller flower and leaves with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then used 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape to attached the larger Flower, tucking the leaves underneath and gluing them down.  The panel was then applied to the cardbase with foam tape and the card was done.

Masculine Cards: Happy Birthday Chevron

I like clean and simple cards and I think they make really nice masculine cards.  I used the white, blue, and grey chevron paper from the Craft Smith Indigo Gold paper pack to make the following cards.

00185I cut a 1″ wide strip of Gina K. Designs 100# Navy Cardstock for the sentiment and then die cut Papertrey Ink Wonderful Words Birthday die from Paper Accents Mirror Gold Cardstock.  I applied the die cut with Tombo Mono Multi Glue to the navy strip.  I then stamped the “happy” from Winnie and Walter Big Bold & Party stamp with VersaMark Ink, prepping the area with Inkadinkado Embossing Magic Pad to ensure a clean application and applied Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Marvy Embossing Tool.

I cut the patterned paper to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and decided to apply the sentiment on the diagonal.  In looking at the layout I decided to cut 3/8″ from the left side of the patterned paper so I could add a strip of gold cardstock as an accent, which I applied directly to the cardbase with Tombo Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.  I then applied the patterned paper with Creative Hands Peel & Stick Foam Sheets to add some dimension.  The sentiment strip was applied with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape to the top of the patterned paper.

At this point I thought the card was too plain, so I decided to add a gold balloon cut with the Lawn Fawn Party Balloons die.  I applied the string directly to the paper and popped up the balloon with foam tape and the card was done.

Masculine Card: Happy Birthday & Dots

Masculine cards are a challenge for me, but I have some really pretty blue and gold paper from the Craft Smith Indigo Gold paper pack that I used to make a card that I really like.

00187I took the blue paper with white and gold dots and cut it to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  Next I cut out 1″ on a diagonal.  I applied the blue and gold paper to the Gina K. Designs 120# cardbase with Creative Hands Peel & Stick Foam Sheets.  The sentiment could now be placed in the space between the two panels.

I die cut Papertrey Ink Wonderful Words Birthday from Paper Accents Mirror Gold Cardstock.  I then cut it three more time from Gina K. Designs 100# Navy Cardstock.  I glued them together with a Zig 2-Way Glue Pen and placed it in the opening to determine the location of stamping “happy” from Winnie and Walter Big Bold & Party.  I prepared the area with an embossing buddy and stamped the word with VersaMark ink and added Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Marvy Embossing Tool.  I then adhered the birthday die cut with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.
