Simon Says Stamp Mod Window Masculine Birthday

Birthday cards for guys are always harder to come up with ideas.  For this card I used a clean and simple, graphic design with the Simon Says Stamp Mod Window Die and an ink blended background.

I ran the Simon Says Stamp Mod Window Die through the Sizzix Big Shot with Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock.  I cut the panel down to have a small border around the die cut.  With the leftover cardstock I used the Distress Ink colors listed below to create a pretty background for the die cut.  A small rectangle was cut to fit behind the window die and Tombo Mono Multi Glue was used to adhere the two together.  With the leftover ink blended paper I die cut the word “birthday” the Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold, and Party Stamp and Die and then again three additional times with scrap white cardstock.  All were glued together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Adhesive Spray.

For assembling the card a side folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  Another rectangle was cut using the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Frames Rectangle.  Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was added to the back.  A narrow rectangle was cut with a paper trimmer to be the perfect size to when combined with Mod Window Die to create a rectangle that is 1/8″ smaller than the bundle of stitched frames rectangle.  The word die was placed on the narrow rectangle to determine placement of the secondary sentiment, which was stamped with Distress Faded Jeans Ink.

The rectangle cut with the bundle of stitched frames was adhered to the cardbase using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  The Mod Window die was glued to the bottom of the rectangle just inside the stitch marks on the rectangle with the same glue and then the narrow rectangle was glued on top.  The “birthday” die cut was adhered using Ranger Multi Medium Matte and the card was done.

CTD432: Simon Says Stamp Birthday Flowers

This is another stamp set that I purchased and had yet to use.  I liked the way it turned out.  The colors were inspired by My Favorite Things Color Takedown Challenge #432.

I started by stamping the images on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with Altenew Inks: Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Ruby, Warm Sunshine, Forest Glades, and Jet Black.  For some of the flower centers I used Altenew’s Vintage Flowers.  I adding veining to the leaves with Copic Markers YG63 and YG67.  I then fussy cut them out with scissors.

From Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock I die cut an oval using My Favorite Things Pierced Oval STAX and an rectangle using Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes.  The rectangle was run through the Sizzix Big Shot with the Darice Basket Weave Embossing Folder.

The flower and leaves were arranged across the top of the landscape oval to determine placement of the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Stylish Sentiments and was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Rangers Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  Next the flowers and leaves were adhered using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.

An oval of Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was die cut and trimmed down to be added to the oval for added dimension on the card.  The embossed rectangle was adhered to a side folding A2 Cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then the focal center oval was adhered with the same glue.  I decided to add Nuvo Chrystal Drops Ebony Black to the flower centers.  A pin was used to draw the uneven centers outward and then Clear Wink of Stella was added for sparkle and shine and the card was done.

Image for Color Throwdown Challenge:

Masculine Silhouette Hello Cards

I needed some masculine hello cards, which I find more of a challenge, but I like the way these turned out. The Echo Park Dots & Stripes paper are beautiful yet simple.

As with the previous hello cards, This time I did not cut the word from the center of a rectangle.  I cut the word only from a scrap of paper with the Brannboll Fet font cut at 120 pt.  At the same time I cut a .04 outline of the word from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock.

I created a rectangle of the polka dot paper with the Big Shot and the smallest Lawn Fawn Stitched Stackable Rectangle.  I created a slightly larger rectangle from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock with the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes rectangle.

To assemble the card the polka dot and gold rectangles were adhered together using the Scotch ATG Glidder.  Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was added to the back of the panel and then it was adhered to a A2 side folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# Kraft Cardstock.  The hello cutout and outline were adhered together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Adhesive Spray.  Strips of 3M 1/2 Foam Tape were added to the back of the word and it was adhered to the front of the polka dot panel with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

For this card the hello word was cut from the center of a 6″ x 4 3/4″ rectangle.  The rectangle was run through the Big Shot with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes.  A small rectangle of Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock was adhered to the back of polka dot rectangle behind the word cutout with Scotch Tape.  Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was then added to the back of the panel for dimension.  The rectangle was adhered to the a side folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# Kraft Cardstock.

Small strips of 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape were added to the back of the word cutout, but even with the gold foil behind it and the added dimension it was getting lost so I ink blended some Barn Door Distress ink to the edges and this helped.  The backing on the foam tape was removed and the word was placed back into the rectangle and the card was done.

This card is exactly the same as the first but I used a different color of the Echo Park Dots & Stripes paper.

Silhouette Hello Card

I send out Hello or Welcome cards to all the new people who move into our church.  In January there were quite a few.  I wanted to create some cards with a large die cut “hello” but I didn’t have a die large enough for what I wanted, so I decided to use my Silhouette Cameo.  I picked out some patterned paper that I liked and created a cut file with the Brannboll Fet font at 120 pt.  For these two cards I used paper from the DCWV Happy Day Cardstock Stack.

For the first card I created a rectangle that was 6″ by 5″ and centered the word “hello” in the rectangle.  Once cutting the file was complete, I removed the word cutout from the rectangle and set it aside to use on the next card.  I ran the rectangle through the Big Shot with both the WPlus9 Gift Card Layers Rectangle and the largest Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles to create a frame.  I added 3M 1/2″ Foam tape to the back of the frame and added it to a side fold A2 size card made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  I felt that something was missing when the word rectangle was placed in the frame and so I decided to back the word with a rectangle of matching pink cardstock I had in my stash and liked it much better.  It was glued to the back of the patterned paper with Tombo Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive and then both were glued into the center of the frame with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

For added embellishment a flower was created from Doodlebug White Sprinkles Vellum by die cutting and assembling My Favorite Things Hybrid Camellia flower.  The leaves were made from Grafix 30# Leaf Green Vellum and cut with the My Favorite Things Stitched Flowers.  These were glued together using Ranger Multi Matte Medium and then glued to the lower right of the card front.

For the second card I used the hello word I had set aside earlier.  It is hard to tell in the pictures, but the patterned paper flowers have gold centers.  I die cut a rectangle using Simon Says Stamp Bundles of Stitched Shapes Rectangle die and glued it to a side folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  To make the word stand out on the rectangle I created a .04 outline of the word in my Silhouette and die cut it from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock.  Because mirror cardstock is such a slick surface I sprayed the back of the patterned paper “hello” with Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive to glue the two cutouts together.

Even with the gold outline the “hello” word faded into the patterned paper rectangle and so I cut a smaller rectangle from pink cardstock I had in my stash with the largest Avery Elle Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles and then glued the “hello” word to the center with Tombo Mono Multi Glue. Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was added to the back of the pink rectangle and then adhered to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

The flower and leaves for this card were created by die cutting My Favorite Things Stitched Flowers die from Doodlebug White Sprinkles Vellum and the leaves were cut from Grafix 30# Leaf Green Vellum with the same die. The flower center was die cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock with My Favorite Things Plentiful Petals die.  Ranger Multi Medium Matte was used to created the flower and glue it to the lower right of the card front.

Nuts About You Valentine’s Day Card

This Valentine’s Day card was made with my daughter Aimee and her family in mind.  She has four amazing, wonderful, smart kids and I wanted them to remember how much I loved them.  I thought the My Favorite Things Nuts About You stamp and die set would be perfect.

I found the wood grain paper from Around the Block Ash Filigree paper pack and die cut it using Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes rectangle.  Next, I die cut three hearts from red cardstock that I had in my stash of papers with the Spellbinders Heart dies.  On one of the hearts I stamped the sentiment from My Favorite Things Nuts About You with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Ink.  I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment since it was textured cardstock and I wanted a clean, crisp image.  I covered the sentiment with Gina K. Designs Detailed White Embossing Powder and heat set it using the Marvy Embossing Tool.

I stamped the cute squirrel and acorn on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with the following Copic Markers: W2, W3, W4, W5, R20; R27, R22, YR24; E30, E33, E35/E55, E57, E59

It was not time to assemble the card.  I placed the red hearts on the wood grain panel.  The two side hearts where adhered with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the center heart with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape for dimension.  The squirrel was placed on the right heart since it was facing left and the acorn on the left heart using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.  I like the card, but it needed something more so I stamped some smaller acorns from the Simon Says Stamp Nutty Over You stamp set and fussy cut them using scissors and scattered them on the hearts.  It still needed something more and since I had been using the Impression Obsession Heart of Hearts die on a previous card I die cut it again from a scrap of red cardstock and scattered them around the card front and that was just what it needed.

The side folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# Ivory Cardstock, but when I went to place the wood grain panel I felt it needed a little pop of color and so I cut a panel of red cardstock 1/8″ larger than the wood grain panel and adhered them together with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then using the same glue adhered them both to the cardbase and the card was done.

Look for the Miracles Fall Wreath

Recently I purchased the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Leaves because I thought it would make a beautiful fall card.  I decided to use it for the encouragement cards I make for Safe Harbor this month, and I really like how they turned out.

00293w

I went into my scraps of paper and pulled out some burgundy, medium and dark green, red, light orange, yellow, medium and dark brown paper and ran them through the big shot with the small leaf die a couple of times.  To add dimension to the leaves I ink blended the edges with Distress Ink (colors are listed below).

I knew I wanted to make the leaves into a wreath, but I was having a difficult time keeping the round shape so that it would be large enough for the sentiment I wanted to use.  So I nested two circle dies from dark green cardstock to create a small ring.  I took a strip of 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape and cut it in thirds so it would be narrow enough to fit on the ring and not show and then I placed the leaves on the ring.  I tried to create a triangle with each color of leaves, varying the shapes and sizes.

Gina K. Designs 120# Ivory Cardstock was run through the Big Shot with the rectangle for Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes.  I positioned the wreath of leaves on the rectangle to determine where I wanted to stamp the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Look for the Miracles set.  Sometimes, when life is difficult and we are struggling to make changes in our lives it is good to be reminded of the little miracles that happen in our lives.  I used VersaMark Ink and Ranger Extra Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder, prepping the area with an anti-static pad before stamping the sentiment.

When I went to glue the wreath to the front panel it was just took stark against the ivory cardstock, so I used Distress Gathered Twigs to ink blend the edges and liked how it looked.  I glued the wreath to the font panel with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  For the cardbase I used Gina K. Designs 120# Dark Chocolate Cardstock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″.  The focal panel was applied using Creative Hands Peel and Stick Fun Foam in Black.  I scattered some dots of Stickles Tidings and the card was done.

Since I always take three cards each month I created two additional cards with the same design but different colored cardbases.  The brown cardbase is my favorite.

Come to Bethlehem Christmas Card

00280wI’ve had the Stampin’ Up Come to Bethlehem stamp set for several years. I had to find it on Ebay since it was discontinued, but it made a beautiful card with Navy ink several years ago.  This time I decided to see what it would like with gold embossing powder and really like the way it turned out.

This is the third Christmas card I created for my husband’s review. Creating the card with the MISTI was so much easier than when I made the card before since it needs to be stamped a couple of times for a crisp image.  I cut a rectangle from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles.  The image was covered with Ranger Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with the Marvy Embossing Heat Tool.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed with Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Holiday Greetings stamp set.

Next a rectangle from Paper Accents Mirror Gold Cardstock was cut 1/8″ larger than the die cut rectangle and both were adhered with the Tombo Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.  A rectangle of Darice White Adhesive Fun Foam was cut with the SSS Stitched Rectangle die and adhered to the back of the focal image, then it was adhered to a top folding A2 card from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

The white and gold are beautiful.

Sending You Prayers

It’s good to have some sympathy cards on hand for when they are needed. This card was made by cutting outline images to match Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with the Silhouette Cameo.  I didn’t want to have harsh black lines for the flowers so I used Altenew Inks to stamp the images onto the cutout and then colored them with Copic Markers. Colors used for both are listed below.

00277w

A top folding card was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  A rectangle of the same paper was cut using Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Frames.  Darice Adhesive White Fun Foam was cut just smaller than the rectangle and adhered to the back and then adhered to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Blue.

The flowers were glued to the flower stems with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and arranged on the stitched rectangle.  The pink flower in the back and the stems were glued directly to the rectangle, with the exception of the stem at the front, which was adhered using thin strips of 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.  Foam tape was also added to the back of blue flower and double foam tape was added to the back of the purple flower.  For the flowers that had centers Queen and Company Rock Candy Yellow Rhinestones were added.

The Hero Arts Prayers die was cut three times from Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock and glued together with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. Before attaching the secondary sentiment “Sending You” was stamped with Hero Hues Black Ink.  The prayers die cut was adhered using Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  For a little added shine Wink of Stella Clear was added to all the flowers and the card was done.

Garden Blooms Birthday with Copic Colored Ribbon

This is not a card I liked enough that I would post it, except it shows that when you do not have ribbon to match a particular color you can use your alcohol markers to change the ribbon color.

00275w

This card uses a Silhouette Cameo Outline, which was stamped with the Penny Black Garden Blooms stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.

I pulled some peachy pink cardstock from my leftover cardstock that matched one of the flowers and cut a lacy oval with the Spellbinders Lacey Ovals die.  3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the focal image and then adhered to the lacy oval.  Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was cut with a Spellbinders oval die and trimmed to be just smaller than the lacy oval.

The stamp set has the sentiment Garden Blooms on the jar label, but I wanted it to say “happy birthday” so a small rectangle was die cut with the smallest My Favorite Things Rectangle Postage Stamp and the My Favorite Things Birthday Greetings Sentiment stamp set was stamped in the center with Hero Hues Black ink and then glued over the original label with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

A rectangle was cut from a pink gingham patterned paper from the Authentique Delightful 6 x 6 Paper Pack with Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Frames and adhered to the front of a top folding cardbase made from 120# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock.  Next the lacy oval was adhered to the patterned paper with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

Originally 5/8″ white organza ribbon was used to tie a bow around the bottom of the card, but it just got lost in the pale color of the patterned paper.  All of the pink ribbon I hand on hand was pink, rather than peach, so I used Copic Marker R22 to color the ribbon to match the color of the lacy oval.  For added interest Recollections Faux Pearls White were added to the front of the oval and the card was done.

Ranunculus Happy Birthday

WPlus9 has such beautiful bouquet stamps and I hope they make more. This card was made with Beautiful Bouquet Ranunculus, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto an outline for the stamp cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  (Instructions for creating a cutout image can be found on the September 29, 2016, post entitled “Happy Birthday Princess with Silhouette Cameo.”)  Copic Markers used were: Y13, Y15, Y17; V12, V15, V17; RV02, RV04; G85, G43, G24; G99, G94; YG93, YG95, YG97; G85, G94; BG10.

I dies cut a rectangle from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with the Memory Box Stitched Rectangles.  I placed the focal image on the rectangle to determine placement for the sentiment, which is from Sugar Pea Designs Celebrate All Things, stamped with Hero Hues Black.  I really like the look of dimension on my cards and so I generously added 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape to the back of the flower image and applied it to the white rectangle.

I took some purple cardstock from my stash to create a top foldling cardbase.  For added interest I ran the front of the card through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was added to the back of the panel and then adhered to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

I always add details to the inside of my cards, but I don’t usually photograph them.  This time I liked the way the sentiment “celebrate” was carried over to the inside “you” from Simon Says Stamp You Matter stamp set and thought I would share.  I stamped the flower bouquet with Memento London Fog ink, and then stamped “you” with Altenew Deep Iris ink.  Next “Happy Birthday” was stamped with Hero Hues Black.

00274bw

I liked the look of the card, but felt it was too much purple and so I cut down the front of the card to be 5 1/4″ x 4″ and glued it to a top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  Next I cut down the inside of the card to the same size and applied it with Tombo Stamp Runner adhesive to the inside of the card.  Making this change really let the focal image panel pop off the card and I liked it much better.
