Happy Birthday


Today I've a red, white and blue birthday card to share.  The card base is a half sheet of kraft cardstock folded in half to make an A2 size card.  On a 4 x 5 1/4 inch piece of white cardstock I layered a 3 1/4 x 4 inch piece of turquoise cardstock and wrapped white lace around these layers before adhering them to the card base.


The image is the Flowers In A Basket wood mounted stamp by Great Impressions.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black on a 2 x 4 1/4 inch piece of white cardstock and colored it in using copic markers.  It's layered on a slightly larger piece of kraft cardstock and adhered to the card base using mounting tape.  The sentiment is from the Label Me Bold stamp set by Stampin Up.  It is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on white cardstock and cut with a slight white border.  To embellish the card I added some clear rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

Sunflower Garden


I'm back with another sunflower card.  I've 22 family members I'm sending sunflower cards to.  I used different stamps and made 2-6 of a given card design so they wouldn't all be the same.  I'm almost done making sunflower cards so soon I'll be able to work on the sentiment for inside the card and addressing envelopes.  

The card base is a half sheet of kraft cardstock folded in half to make an A2 size card folded at the top.  I layered it with a 4 x 5 inch white card stock, 4 x 5 inch off red patterned paper and a 1 1/2 x 5 inch yellow patterned paper.  I adhered these at various angles on the card base and then wrapped white thread around the card base.  The ends of the thread are taped under the image.

Sunny Pair


I've been playing with all things sunflower lately.  I'm making sunflower cards with the sentiment Sending Sunshine to send the family this month.  Today's card features the Sunny Pair cling stamp by Penny Black.

The card base is a half sheet of yellow card stock folded in half to make an A2 size card with the fold at the top.  Next I layered it with dark brown card stock cut to 3 15/16 x 5 3/16 inches.  I cut a piece of white card stock 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches and distressed the edges with dark brown ink.  

The triangles and cross hatch are from the Taylored Expressions Field Notes kit.  I stamped them in dark brown then sponged green ink on the white cardstock.  I adhered the white cardstock onto the dark brown cardstock then wrapped some white thread around it before adhering it to the card base.


The image is the Sunny Pair cling stamp by Penny Black.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black on watercolor paper and water colored the image using my new AltENew watercolors.  I fussy cut the sunflowers out and and adhered them to the card base using mounting tape.  The sentiment was typed in a word document and printed out then cut to fit.  To embellish the card I added some clear sequins.

Flowers In A Basket


This is a really quick card to put together.  I only used white cardstock plus one color.  I used a half sheet of rose cardstock and folded it in half to make an A2 size card with the fold at the top.  I layered it with white cardstock then another layer of slightly smaller white card stock embossed using the bricks embossing folder.  I inked the inside of the embossing folder with light grey ink before running it through the Cuttlebug with the white paper.  


I added a piece of rose cardstock and wrapped some white thread around the layers before adhering it to the card base.  The image is the Flowers In A Basket rubber stamp by Great Impressions.  I stamped it on white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with copic markers.  The sentiment is from the Label Me Bold stamp set by Stampin' up. I stamped it on white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black.  To embellish the card I added three clear dew drops.

Garden's Visitors


My sister in-law loves garage sales and every now and then finds a rubber stamp for me.  This one was made in 1999 called Garden's Visitors by Stampressions.  My card base is a half sheet of black card stock folded in half.  I layered two pieces of patterned paper that together measure 3 15/16 x 5 3/16 inches.  Next I added a strip of black with white polka dots ribbon and taped the ends on the back side of the cardstock.


The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on white cardstock measuring 3 1/4 x 4 10/16 inches and colored in using copic markers.  It's layered on a 3 7/16 x 4 13/16 inch piece of black cardstock and adhered to the card base using mounting tape.  The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on white cardstock and fussy cut out with scissors.  I added a coordinating yellow button finished with a black and white twine bow.  To embellish the card I added some clear rhinestones.
