Paper Nest Dolls – Ballgown Avery Card

Hello!

Here’s another card using a beautiful stamp from the Paper Nest Dolls. This one is called “Ballgown Avery.” My son asked me to make him a card for his friend’s Quinceañera and I immediately knew this stamp would be perfect since Avery is dressed in a ballgown. I tried to replicate my son’s friend as best as I could, coloring her dress red and hair brown.  After all, red was the color of her actual dress.

Hello!

Today on my blog I am sharing a card that I made for my BFF. When her and I get together, we always go to the beach and eat ice cream so I incorporated these two items into this card. Besides crafting, these are my other favorite things to do!

Ice Cream Sundae Stand Up Card

Ice Cream Stand-Up Birthday Card

Ice Cream Sundae Stand Up Card

Hello!

Here is the second card that I made for the Stamps of Life Fan Club Facebook group weekly challenge “ice cream.” For this card, many of the products I used are from The Stamps of Life March Card Kit and the Die Hard Club Kit.

Just like with the first ice cream card I made in the challenge, I paper pierced the ice cream scoops using only the die cuts and cardstock. Using the die set for BananaSplit2Stamp,  I ran the dies through the die cut machine using solid and patterned paper and then glued the pieces together to form the ice cream scoops. I used  Bubblegum card stock for the bottom layer of ice cream and I used polka dot paper from the Sparkle Collection patterned paper pad for the top layer. The cherry was cut with Strawberry cardstock, the banana was die cut with Banana cardstock, and the dish was die cut with Cloud cardstock.

The “Happy Birthday” sentiment also came in the March card kit and was cut with Powered Sugar and Strawberry cardstock. The balloons came from the same kit and were die cut with Strawberry and Lemonade cardstock.

Ocean Pop Up CardHello! Today I’m featuring an ocean-themed pop up box card that I made for my son’s birthday.  He will be 11 on June 11.

Cupcake Avery – Elegant Card

Cupcake Avery 2019-04

Hello!

Here is a another birthday card that I made using a stamp from The Paper Nest Dolls. This stamp is called Cupcake Avery. I also incorporated some of Anna Griffin’s elegant dies and papers and Queen and Company’s flower embellishments.

The card base is from Anna Griffin’s 6 x 6 Perfect Pattern Card Set. The color matches perfectly with the green copic markers that I used to color her dress.

The large square die cut is from Anna Griffin’s All Square Cut and Emboss Dies. First, I die cut shadow layer in the purple glitter card stock.  I applied double sided adhesive to the top solid purple layer before running it through the die cut machine. This made it easier to adhere to the glitter paper.  The green lace die cuts are from the Anna Griffin Lace Edge Die Set and I followed the same procedure as previously stated.

Using hot glue, I adhered the flower embellishments to the front of the card.

Here are the supplies I used:

  1. Paper Nest Dolls Cupcake Avery Stamp
  2. Lawn Fundamentals Jet Black Premium Ink Pad
  3. Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium Card Stock (to stamp the image onto)
  4. Card base: Anna Griffin Perfect Pattern 6 x 6 inch Card Set

  6. Anna Griffin Lace Edge Die Set
  7. Anna Griffin Everyday Perfect Palette II Cardstock
  8. Queen and Company Flowers
  9. Copic Markers
