The Stamps of Life Fan Group Weekly Challenge – Flowers – Card 4

Hello!

I was asked by Kristin Bost, a design team member for The Stamps of Life, to host a weekly challenge in The Stamps of Life Facebook Fan Group. Of course, I said yes. I just love the stamps and dies from The Stamps of Life. I’ve been a member of their Die Hard Club for two years and just recently joined the Card Kit Club. More information about their Kit clubs can be found here – https://www.thestampsoflife.com/club.htm.

The theme for the weekly challenge is flowers. The only rule is to use products from The Stamps of Life….easy peasy!!

I made six cards and will be posting them on separate blog posts. Each card also has a You Tube process video which I will link in the blog post.

Card 4 – Wreath Gatefold

I just love the pink and green colors in this card. I incorporated flowers on the wreath, within the panels of the gatefold card, and on the patterned paper on the inside of the card. All of the colors match beautifully.

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.

Elegant Birthday Card – Pink

Anna Griffin Pink Birthday Card Square 2019-04Anna Griffin Pink Birthday Card Square_closeup 2019-04

 

Hello!

On today’s blog, I made another birthday card using supplies from Anna Griffin. First, I die cut shadow layers for two the lace dies and then die cut the corresponding lace die cut. Before die cutting the lace ones, I put double-sided adhesive on the back of the card stock before running them through my die cut machine. This made it easier to adhere the lace piece to the shadow piece.

Next, I added a birthday sentiment from the Anna Griffin® Birthday Wishes 3D Sticker Kit. The “Aunt” sentiment stamp is from the Treasury and was stamped onto pink card stock using the Treasury ink pad in gold. Two of the rectangle die cuts were cut and foam adhesive added in between to add dimension.

The flowers were added to the card and are from Anna Griffin® Favorite Flower 120-pack Mini 3D Sticker Set.

The cake and balloon stamps are also from the Treasury of Stamps and Dies.  I stamped the balloons and cake onto a piece of cream-colored card stock and then die cut them with the corresponding die. I die cut the shadow layers from a piece of pink card stock. Next, I adhered the die cuts to the shadow layers with foam adhesive to add dimension. Finally, I hot glued a pink bow to the balloon. The pink bow was from one of Anna Griffin’s card kits.

Another fun and elegant card to make!

Hello!

On today’s blog, I made a birthday card using supplies from Anna Griffin. First, I die cut shadow layers for each of the three lace dies and then die cut the lace die cut for each . Before die cutting the lace one, I put double-sided adhesive on the back of the card stock before running it through my die cut machine. This made it easier to adhere the lace piece to the shadow piece.  After layering all pieces as shown above, I added the sentiment to the center of the card and surrounded it by the flowers. The butterfly embellishment came from one of my Anna Griffin card kits.

Such an easy and elegant card to make! All of the supplies are from HSN, however, many are sold out. Keep checking back as they restock often.

Hello!

On today’s blog, I made another birthday card using supplies from Anna Griffin. First, I die cut shadow layers for each of the three lace dies and then die cut the corresponding lace die cut. Before die cutting the lace ones, I put double-sided adhesive on the back of the card stock before running them through my die cut machine. This made it easier to adhere the lace piece to the shadow piece.

Sentiment: For the sentiment, I used the Anna Griffin Treasury of Stamps and Dies Birthday and Congratulatory bundle. Using a piece of cream-colored card stock, I die cut the shadow layer for the sentiment and then stamped it with the gold Anna Griffin ink. I also die cut the small circle piece that goes in the middle of the shadow layer and stamped it with the “Birthday Wishes” stamp using a red ink that I had in my stash. The circle is adhered to the shadow piece with some foam adhesive to add dimension. I added the flowers around the sentiment.

Gift and Balloons: The gift and balloon stamps are also  from the Treasury of Stamps and Dies Birthday and Congratulatory bundle. I stamped the balloons and gift onto a piece of cream-colored card stock and then die cut it with the corresponding die. For the balloon, I adhered a red bow from one of Anna Griffin’s card kits.
