Spring Card Camp 2 Day 10 Letter Substitution Treat yo’ Self Candy Shop

Day 10 of the Spring Card Camp 2 was taught by Channin Pelletier. Her technique was all about substituting one of the letters in a die cut sentiment with an image. She used some cute critters and a flower. I decided to use a heart lollipop for my first card.

I created and cut my word in the Silhouette Cameo, cutting it five times from 80# white cardstock and then layering them together with liquid glue. I also pulled in my heart lollipop digi stamp and did an outline to cut around the image. I then cut the outline four more times so the lollipop would be the same dimension as the letters. The lollipop was substituted for the “a” in Happy.

When I was going through some of my 6″x6″ paper pads I saw this pink and white striped cardstock. It made me think of an awning over a store front and that is what I decided to do. I decided to use a sentiment from Scrapbook.com’s Sweet Celebrations for the store name and stamped it in top center of the patterned paper. I then used the scalloped border from Pretty Pink Posh to create my awning.

I positioned my letters and lollipop underneath the awning and then cut a thin rectangle at the bottom of the card for the bottom of the store front. Before gluing the letters and lollipop in place I stamped the secondary greeting with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it. The awning and lower store front were adhered with foam tape. The sentiment letters and lollipop were adhered in place with liquid glue. As a final embellishment I added Ranger Crystal Stickles to the heart lollipop and then adhered everything to a side folding A2 cardbase.

Bowl of Beauty Flowers Celebrate On Your Special Day

This is the other image from Power Poppy, which includes the same flowers without the bowl. It was printed with a laser jet printer and colored with Copic Markers.

The sentiment is from Scrapbook.com Sweet Celebration and was stamped with Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink.

This time I decided to use my new Ellen Hutson Essential Oval die, which cuts both an oval and a thin oval frame. Sticky back foam was added to the back of the oval. The thin frame was colored with a matching Copic Markers.

A top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and then the card front was embossed using the Cricut Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder.

The thin frame was adhered to the front with liquid glue and then the oval image was adhered with the same glue and the card was done.

Birthday Cake Hooray

I love this big hooray die from Honey Bee Stamps, it has several layers that can be used in creating a sentiment. For this card I just used two. I loved this paper Adventure Emporium and thought it would make a great masculine card. I added a birthday cake for added visual interest and distress the edges of everything with Distress Oxide Gathered Twigs.
