Hello!

On my blog today I’m featuring a card I made using Stamp Anniething’s Lemonade Stand bundle. This company is new to me. I first saw them at the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Orlando, Florida on May 17, 2019. Their stamps are amazing! I picked up the Lemonade Stand bundle which includes a stamped doll image and many other stamps and die cuts to go along with it. Check out my video which shows everything that is included in the bundle and the process for which I made the card. Enjoy!

Lighthouse Card

Lighthouse2stamp

Hello! This card was super fun to make and it is perfect for a masculine card. I used the brand new lighthouse2stamp stamp and die set from The Stamps of Life.

To make this card, first I stamped the image onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. The stamped image does not have stripes so I decided to add my own. Using washi tape, I sectioned off portions of the image before starting to color. (In the image below, you can see the white washi tape on the image.)

Lighthouse - 1

After coloring the entire red section, I removed the washi tape, colored the gray section, and then colored the rest of the image. The image was colored using Copic and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. The yellow windows were colored with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers in Moonlight. After the lighthouse was colored, I die cut the image using the lighthouse2stamp coordinating die.

Next, I worked on the sky background. Using Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers (Blue Topaz, Aquamarine, and Moonstone), I colored a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. I started with the darkest color, Blue Topaz, and drew lines across the paper. Then I moved to the medium color, Aquamarine, and drew lines directly underneath the Blue Topaz lines. Next I followed with the lightest color, Moonstone. After all the markers were on the paper, I used a wet paint brush and smoothed out the colors.

The blue water colored paper was cut down into a piece that could fit nicely on top of the card. I stamped the sentiment and birds onto the blue water colored paper and then adhered the lighthouse to the blue paper.

Next, I cut a piece of Strawberry cardstock that is just slightly larger than the blue paper and then adhered the blue paper to the Strawberry card stock. The Strawberry cardstock was adhered to the A2 card base using foam adhesive to add dimension. The A2 card base was cut with Gingersnap paper.

Next, using hot glue, I added shells to the bottom of the card. (I don’t recall the name of the company I purchased the shells from. They were at the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo Orlando in 2018. If I find the name, I’ll update the blog post.)

The inside of the card was stamped with a “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the lighthouse2stamp stamp from The Stamps of Life.

Gift Box Card

Gift Fold-It with Box-it Die_Front

Hello!

Today on my blog I am sharing another box card that I made using dies from The Stamps of Life.  Once again, I made this as a birthday gift that I needed to have ready quickly so I couldn’t find a better way to present a card and gift card so easily and uniquely.

For this project, I used the Sizzix Gift Fold-it by Stephanie Barnard at The Stamps of Life (Sizzix #661844). First, I used the die to make a fold-it card. The fold-it card is my front piece. The recipient can open the card to see the message.

Next, I used the die to make another gift panel, but this time I did not make it as a card. Instead, I made it as one gift panel. The back is one solid gift panel.

For the box portion in the middle, I used The Stamps of Life Box-It die. To view instructions on how to put this all together, view Stephanie Barnard’s video here: Box-It Die Tutorial.

The “Happy” die cut sentiment is from The Stamps of Life. The die cut comes with  several stamp sentiments that can be used along with it. I chose the “Birthday” stamp and stamped it with Seaglass ink in the inside card panel.

The balloon stamp is from the The Stamps of Life March 2019 card kit and was stamped with Guava ink.

The decorative paper is from the Party Girl 6 x 6 paper pad from Photo Play.

The green paper is Kiwi card stock and the card base is the Ocean card stock from The Stamps of Life.

The red paper and white paper are scrap papers that I had in my stash.

I used double-sided tape to adhere all of the pieces together, added some miniature chocolates, and a gift card to the center. Such a quick and easy way to present a gift!

BananaSplit2Stamp – Stamps of Life March 2019 Kit

bananasplit2stamp_copic

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing a card I made using products from The Stamps of Life March 2019 Card Kit and Stamp Club/Die Hard Club Kits.

First, I stamped the banana split image using the bananasplit2stamp and colored it using Copic markers. Next, I die cut it with the matching die set – bananasplit2stamp dies.

The card base I used is the Sizzix Card, Rounded Corners w/Circle Drop-ins #662742. I cut the card base from the Mint Chip card stock which came in TSOL March 2019 card kit. Using the rounded corner layering piece from the Sizzix Card, Rounded Corners w/Circle Drop-ins die, I die cut the pink and white striped patterned paper to layer on top of the card base. Next, using a stitched rectangle die, I cut another laying piece using the mint chip and white polka dot patterned paper. The paper pad in this collection is the Happy Birthday Collection.

The Happy Birthday word die was from the March 2018 Card Kit as well as the balloon die. I adhered both of them and then used the twine to tie a ribbon around the balloons. Last, I adhered the silver gems to the front of the card.

Inside the card, I used a piece of patterned paper from the Make a Wish Collection patterned paper pad. The sentiment is stamped from a stamp set that was included in the March 2019 card kit.

“Just a Note” Raccoon Pudgie

RaccoonPudgie23_JustANote_

Hello!Today on my blog is a masculine card. I made this card for my 15-year old son. He is flying to Dallas with his dad to test for his third degree senior black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Since I cannot be there to watch him test, this card is going in his suitcase so he will find it when he gets there. It’s just my way of sending him my love, happy thoughts, and encouragement (not that he needs it).

Okay…now for the supplies used…

The card base is the Sizzix Rectangle/Gift Card Flip-its Card Set (#660714) by Stephanie Barnard. The neat thing about this flip-it card is that you can make the middle rectangle part turn into a gift card holder, but I chose not to use it in this way. I just used the card base and the two decorative panels. I cut the card base out of Licorice card stock from The Stamps of Life. The two side panels were cut out of a piece of patterned paper from the Sweetheart collection patterned paper pad. Those panels were adhered using double-sided tape. The rectangle in the middle was cut from a piece of paper from the same patterned paper pad using a stitched rectangle die.

I used the “Just a Note” sentiment from the words4jar stamp set and stamped it onto the same gray paper that was used to cut out the stitched rectangle. The ink used was Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink. I applied double-sided adhesive behind the sentiment and then die cut it using the coordinating die from the words4jar dies. The shadow layer was cut from Licorice card stock. The sentiment was adhered to the shadow layer and then adhered to the stitched rectangle.

The stamp used for this card is the raccoonpudgie23. I colored it with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and then used the coordinating die cut to cut it out. (I cannot find this stamp anywhere on The Stamps of Life website. I don’t believe they sell it since it was given as a gift at one of their classes.)

To finish off this card, black embellishments from The Stamps of Life were added.
