WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquet Ranunculus Birthday

This pretty image from WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquet Ranunculus always makes a lovely card.  The the outline was cut with the Silhouette Cameo and then the image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with Copic Markers (listed below).

A panel of Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock was cut with the largest rectangle for Lawn Fawn Small Stackable Rectangles and then run through the Big Shot again with the Cricut Ben Day Dots Embossing Folder. The panel was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  The image was adhered to the panel using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.

The sentiment was cut from gold mirror cardstock three times and adhered together with Elmer’s Adhesive Spray.  The small “birthday” from My Favorite Things Happy Everything was stamped with VersaMark Ink on a scrap of Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock and embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The “happy” die was adhered to the card with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the black “birthday” was tucked underneath and adhered directly to the embossed panel with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquet Mums Birthday

Different colors can make the same stamp have a completely different feel.  I love the pretty fall colors in this card.

I die cut the outline for the WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquet Mums with my Silhouette Cameo and then stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink since I planned to color it with Copic Markers.  Colors used are listed below.

To add interest to the card a panel of Gina K.

WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquet Dahlias Sympathy

I love all of WPlus9’s Beautiful Bouquet Stamps.  This card uses the Dahlias, which make a lovely sympathy card.

Unfortunately we all need sympathy cards.  I really like the color combination of this card.  I cut an outline of the Dahlias with my Silhouette Cameo and then stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink since I was using Copic Markers (see colors below).

Since the stamped image is the focal point using an embossing folder adds interest to a clean and simple card.  A panel was cut from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with the largest rectangle from Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles and then embossed with the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder.  The embossed panel was adhered to the front of an top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Darice Adhesive Fun Foam and Tombo Mono Multi Glue. The focal image was adhered to the embossed panel with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Scripty Sayings, stamped with VersaMark Ink on 120# Gina K. Designs Black Cardstock and adhered to the card front with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.

Pure Innocence Scientist Birthday Card

I am surrounded my scientists in my household.  My husband’s degree is in biology, my oldest daughter has a degree in bio chemistry and her husband is a physical therapist, my oldest son has a doctorate in geo physics and his wife has a masters in geology, my youngest son’s degree is in chemistry, along with his beautiful wife, and my youngest daughter is a pediatrician.  And then there’s me who doesn’t do anything with science, went to secretarial college, and loves to create.  Go figure.

Both of my daughters-in-law have birthdays in November.  I am always looking for stamp sets that I think my children and grandchildren would like.  This card was made with My Favorite Things Pure Innocence and Undeniable Chemistry and is for Monica.

00296w

I took some Canson XL 140# Cold Press Watercolor Paper and prepped it with an anti-static pad since I planned to emboss a background for the card.  I randomly stamped the chemical symbols from My Favorite Undeniable Chemistry, added Ranger Silver Embossing Powder and heat set with the Marvy Embossing Tool.

Since Monica’s favorite colors are burgundy and black I used Candied Apple, Seedless Preserves, Aged Mahogany, Hickory Smoke and Black Soot to ink blend the panel.  It was glued to a top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock.

The image from My Favorite Things Pure Innocence was stamped on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink since I planned to color it with Copic Markers (colors are listed below).  Once the image was colored it was run through the Sizzix Big Shot with the second Lawn Fawn Small stitched Stackable Rectangles.  A rectangle of Recollection Silver Mirror Cardstock was cut 1/8″ larger than the focal image and glued together with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

Using Winnie & Walter the Big, the Bold and Party stamp set “birthday” was stamped in the lower right of the focal panel. WPlus9 Happy Trio was die cut from both Recollections Silver Mirror Cardstock and Darice Adhesive White Fun Foam and adhered together with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then to the focal image.

Darice Adhesive White Fun Foam was glued to the back of the focal image and adhered to the background panel with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Dahlias Happy Birthday

This is another card using a Silhouette Cameo outline of an image, which I planned to to adhered to a yellow cardbase, but decided that I would like it better with white border around a yellow rectangle.

00276w

Since the image would be colored with Copic Markers it was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Marker colors used are listed below.  My Favorite Things Postage Stamp STAX die was cut from 80# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock and then run through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls Embossing Folder.

A rectangle of Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was cut just smaller than the postage stamp die cut and adhered to the back.  The rectangle of yellow cardstock from my stash was cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″ and adhered to a top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the flower focal image and adhered to the top of the postage stamp rectangle.  Hero Arts Happy Stamp and Cut die was cut three times from Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock and glued together with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and adhered to the bottom of the postage stamp rectangle.  The word “birthday” from the same stamp set was stamped to the bottom right corner of the yellow rectangle with Hero Hues Black ink.  The focal image was glued to the yellow rectangle with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Mums Bouquet Happy Birthday

This is another card made by stamping an image to a Silhouette Cameo outline of a WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquet image.  This time I used the Mums stamp set.  Since I was going to use Copic Markers to color the image it was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. 00278w A top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  Next a yellow frame was cut using the Pretty Pink Posh Scalloped Rectangle Die.  3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was cut in thirds and adhered to the back of the frame to add dimension.  When I went to apply the frame to the cardbase I found that this frame leaves are larger top and bottom border to an A2 cardbase.  I like to have my cards evenly spaced and so 1/4″ was cut from the length of the front and back of the card so that the overall size was 4 1/4″ x 10 1/2″ scored at 5 1/4″.

The sentiment was stamped with Hero Hues Black ink and is from Hero Arts Yummy Treats stamp set.  Foam tape was added to the back of the flower image and applied to the inside of the frame 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.

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.

Noble Deer Masculine Birthday Card

My brother-in-law is an avid hunter and my sister is a saint since their home and cabin is decorated in hundreds of stuffed animals.  Although I like to take pictures of these noble creatures, Kirk enjoys the challenge of the hunt and has done it in Russia, Alaska, Africa, New Zealand, to name a few, and all across the United States.  The Stampin’ Up Noble Deer is the perfect stamp for a card for Kirk.

00273aw

I began by using the Avery Elle Double Pierced Squares dies to create a square from Gina K. Designs 120# Ivory Cardstock.  I love this cardstock when using Copic markers because it does not bleed through.  Next I stamped the image with Memento Espresso Truffle ink, however, I stamped off once to lighten the ink.  I used the following Copic Markers to color image.

  • Deer: E33, E35, E37, E41
  • Grass: Y93, Y95
  • Trees: E49, G28, G85
  • Cloud: C1, C2
  • Sky: BG0000, BG 10

I created a top folding A2 cardbase from Gina K. Designs 120# Ivory Cardstock.  I cut some plaid cardstock I had in my stash with the rectangle from WPlus9 Gift Card Layers die and glued it directly to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

Next I die cut some craft cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles and placed the focal image on top to determine where to stamp the sentiment from My Favorite Things Big Birthday Sentiments with Memento Espresso Truffle ink.  To add some interest I took some twine I had in my stash and tied it just above the sentiment and then used a pick to spread the ends.

Next I used some 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape to apply the focal image to the sentiment panel, and then I used some fun foam on the back of the craft panel, being sure to leave a channel for the thickness of the twine, and adhered it to the plaid cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

SUMMER BLOOMS HAPPY BIRTHDAY

There are no matching dies for the WPlus9 Summer Blooms stamp set, so I cut some outlines with my Silhouette Cameo to create this card.  I merged the flowers, stems, and leaves into one image prior to cutting.  I used the Altenew inks listed below to stamp the images on the cutouts.

00270I used the Sizzix Big Shot to die cut a rectangle from Winnie & Walter Audrey Essentials Pierced Scalloped Rectangles from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock and glued the largest and smallest flowers directly to the panel with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  The two medium flowers in the center I adhered using 3M ½” Foam Tape.
The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs Birthday Greetings and was stamped on 120# Gina K. Designs Black Cardstock with VersaMark Ink.  Recollections Snow Embossing Powder was added and heat set with the Marvy Embossing Tool.  I used my paper cutter to trim the sentiment and then cut double fishtail ends.  The sentiment strip was adhered using 3M ½” Foam Tape to the scalloped rectangle.  Some Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was cut to be just smaller than the scalloped rectangle and, once applied, was adhered to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

PRODUCTS USED:

Beautiful Bouquet Birthday Mums

This card also used some of the beautiful paper I have in my stash. Today I picked a pink with gold foil polka dots from DCWV Happy Day Stack Paper. You can probably tell by the cards I create that I love the look of flowers. This time I used WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquet Mums Stamp.

00194

I stamped the image on Strathmore 140# Cold Press Watercolor Paper with VersaMark Ink, treating it with an Inkadinkado Embossing Magic Pad to remove any oils from the paper. I sprinkled Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it with the Marvy Embossing Heat Tool.

The side fold cardbase was make from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored with the ScorBuddy and the Simon Says Stamp Small Teflon Bone Folder to 4 1/4″. A panel of the patterned paper was cut with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and adhered to the card with Tombo Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.

I watercolored the image with Distress Ink.  Because of the color of the paper the ink used were: Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters. Once the image was dry I cut it with the largest Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Stackable Rectangles Die. A panel of Paper Accents Gold Mirror cardstock was added behind the focal image to make it pop and all was adhered with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.
