Anniversary Card for my husband

I would like to share with you the card I made for my dear husband for our anniversary. I used the Hexagon Hive Thinlits die that coordinates with the Honeycomb Hello stamp set. (Buy them together as a bundle!) I also used the Word Bubble Framelits and Just Sayin’ stamp set.

The background is Hello Honey card stock and the “hive” is Daffodil Delight card stock. I cut small flowers in Blackberry Bliss card stock with the new Itty Bitty Accent punch. This dark purple makes a great contrast with the yellows! I like this cute little bee that goes perfectly with the hive!

Two more Masculine Flip Cards!

I’m in love with the flip cards! (But I think I already mentioned it in this post!!!) With the new Circle flip card, it’s so easy to create this really cool card! I made one for my son’s 12 birthdays and for my brother’s birthday. Since they are a bit similar, you get a 2 for 1 today!

So here’s the card I made for my son:

A fond! Gabriel A fond! Gabriel flip2

I really like this card because when you flip the card, the car seams like it’s moving forward! I used a few stamp sets on this card: Rev up the Fun! (the car and wheel tracks), Clockworks (all the gears), Gorgeous Grunge (ink splatters) and Just Sayin’ (word bubble). The card base is Island Indigo. I added a flap to write the message in the inside and I used Smoky Slate card stock on the top of the flap (RHS). The number 12 is made with Silver Foil card stock (p.193 in the new catalog!).

Material:

Stamp sets: Gorgeous Grunge, Just Sayin’, A fond! (Rev up the Fun!)(retired), Clockworks (retired)

CS and paper: Silver Foil card stock, Island Indigo, Smoky Slate, Whisper White

Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Island Indigo, Smoky Slate, Silver Metallic ink, Basic Gray, Pool Party

Tools: Big Shot, Circle flip Card (#133480), 2-1/2″ Circle punch, Word Bubbles Framelits,  Sizzlits Alphabet dies (retired)

Here’s the card I made for my brother:

A fond! Francois 2014 A fond! Francois flip

A fond! Fracois close-up

This card is Basic Black and I used Silver metallic ink to stamp the gears on the front. It really “pops” on the Black card stock! I heat embossed the motorcycle with Pewter embossing powder and colored some part with Daffodil Delight, using the Blender pen, to match the yellow ink splatters (made with Gorgeous Grunge set). The right panel is also Smoky Slate card stock, stamped with Smoky Slate ink. The “WOO HOO” is from a new stamp set called Bravo.

Birthday Bubble Card!

School is now over and I’m enjoying the Summer with my 3 children at home! First week was devoted to repainting our huge deck! It took the full week, trust me! I’m now back with a few projects to share with you! (including many new sets and items from the new catalog!!!)

Today’s project is a fun Birthday card! I used the new Birthday set “Birthday Surprise” and the Word Bubble framelits and Just Sayin’ coordinated stamp set. The background paper is from the Moonlight Designer Series paper pack (new item found on p.185). Do you like this new dark purple? I simply love it! It’s one of the new In-Color, called Blackberry Bliss.

Material:

Stamp set: Birthday Surprise, Just Sayin’, Something to Say

CS and paper: Crush Curry, Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake, Whisper White

Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry

Tools: Big Shot, Word Bubble Framelits, Circle Framelits, 1-1/4″ Circle punch

Instructions:

1. Cut half a sheet of Crush Curry Card stock. Fold in half to form the card base.

2. Cut a 5-1/4″ x 4″ rectangle of “Moonlight Designer series paper”. Use circle from the Circle Framelits Collection to cut 2 circles (top and bottom left). Cut a 3rd circle with the 1-1/4″ Circle punch.

3. Use scrap pieces of Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry and Crush Curry card stock to stamp the cupcake, balloon and present image with Blackberry Bliss ink. (I used Rich Razzleberry ink for the balloon).  Adhere behind the cut circles. Adhere on the card base.

4. Stamp “Bubble saying” (Just Sayin’ stamp set) with Blackberry Bliss ink. Cut with matching Framelits and Big Shot. For the “Happy Birthday” I used the “Something to Say” stamp set in one of the Bubble. Use the marker to only stamp the bubble outline and then stamp the “Happy Birthday” in the bubble. Adhere on the card with dimensionals.

 

Around the World Away we go!

Good news! I was featured as a guest artist on the “Scrapbook and Cards Today” magazine Blog last Saturday! If you want to see some of the projects I made, click here. I was asked to make 8 projects with the “I Am Me” suite (check it on p.47-48 of the current catalogue). They pick 4 projects from the eight I made. But don’t worry, I will show you the 4 others!!!  Here’s one of them: a card that I made with the “Around the World” stamp set. It’s a perfect card to say “good-bye” to someone who’s going for a trip and moving to a different country.

I used the Framelits from “Word Bubble” as well as the coordinated stamp set “Just Sayin’ ” to complete my card. (Bundle and save 15% when you buy the stamp set and framelits together! p.36 of the Occasion mini-catalog!)
