A FUN BIRTHDAY CARD


This was such a simple card to make.  I cut a couple of circles into the white layer and added some colored card stock behind the circles.  The two colored pieces are actually adhered to the pink card base.  The white layer was then added to the pink card base using foam squares.  A pink balloon was die cut and popped onto the white layer.  Finally I simply drew the black lines with a sharpie and  added the black die cut "celebrate".

 I think this card would be appropriate for kids and adults alike.  Thank you for coming by today!

STAMPIN' UP! - Simply Sketched


A couple of weeks ago when I was pulling out some hoarded designer papers and stamp sets I hadn't used in a long while, I made this card.

Thank you for stopping by today!

SPONGING OVER HEAT EMBOSSING


While I had the SU Pocket Silhouettes stamp set out recently, I made this card.  I stamped the design three times on a piece of white card stock using VersaMark and then heat embossed them with silver powder.  Before using a stitched rectangle die to cut them out I sponged  the Marina Mist ink over the designs.  I used a dry rag to remove any ink that remained on the embossing.

The card base is white and a silver foil layer (4" x 5 1/4") was added to the base.  The white layer with the designs is 3 3/4" x 5".  The designs were added with foam squares after scoring the three lines.

Thank you for coming by today.

POCKET CARD



Another CASE from a Pinterest sighting.  I made four of these cards in different colors.  When the top flap opens there is a pocket in side and the white card is tuck down inside.  There is room at the bottom of the white card to write a short personal message and your signature.

Thanks for coming by today!

STAMPIN' UP! - Pocket Silhouettes


This is pretty much a CASE of a card I ran across on Pinterest.  One day I decided to pull out a retired wood mounted SU stamp set.  It was my goal to make a card a little different than my usual so naturally I turned to Pinterest and searched out samples of cards using that set.  I really liked this one.  

Using scraps of card stock that I keep in a container, I stamped each design using SU Craft White ink and then heat embossed with white powder.  Each design was cut using a stitched rectangle.  I centered the olive piece on the card base first so it would be centered and attached it with foam squares.  It was easy then to place the navy and orange pieces spaced appropriately also with foam dots.  A simple sentiment was added with navy ink.
