Painted Glass Screen Divider Card

Hi Stampers,

For today's card I decided to make a screen divider card using the Graceful Glass designer vellum. I just love this vellum---so delicate and intricate. I also used my blends for the coloring. I mounted the vellum onto a piece of Whisper White before adhering to the card. I could have cut out the Old Olive and adhered the vellum like the top portion but I chose not too. To make this card you need a piece of cardstock cut at 5-1/2 x 11. Along the 11 inch side, you need to score at 2-3/4, 5-1/2 and 8-1/4 inches. I used the Everyday Label Punch to punch out along the bottom of the card.

Painted Glass Flap Fold Card

Hi Stampers,

Man!! Is it hot here in Michigan!!! It got up to 93 degrees today. It felt closer to 100. WAY TO HOT for me!!! Tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter at 95 degrees and heat index of 110!!! In fact, we have heat warnings for the next week or so. I am only a summer lover to about 80 degrees --- that is hot enough for me.

Today, my card is a sympathy card. These types of cards aren't a favorite of mine but I do like to have them on hand. I used my new Tufted Embossing Folder. I heat embossed the rose in clear embossing powder to give me some lines that stood up to coloring with the new blends. I also heat embossed the sentiment.

Father's Day Six Pack

Gradsdads

Hi Stampers,

Today for my Grads & Dads blog post, I made a cute Father's Day six pack. That's right, my hubby's favorite---a six pack of beer!!! This card originated from the card I posted for Easter below.

DSCN0260

Instead, I used the cute jar framelit and silver foil sheets to cut out the beer cans. TIP: When cutting out die cuts with the gold or silver foil I place a sheet of copy paper over it then place the cutting plate on top. Any marks you have on your cutting plate will not show through on the gold or silver foil paper. 

I also used the Foil Frenzy Speciality DSP again along with the new mini gift bows. BTW, I think these are SO ADORABLE!!! They are definitely one of my favorite new embellishments.

DSCN0077

This card does fold flat and fits in a regular A2 envelope. However, with the gift bows I would probably hand deliver so they do not get ruined in the mail.

I used the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

I also have a template for you to download for the measurements along with tutorial for the Easter Basket Card/Six Pack.

Double Z Fold Stylized Happy Birthday!!!

 I have been wanting to make the double Z fold card for awhile now. They are all over Pinterest. Some are SO HIGHLY DETAILED and just gorgeous!!! I am always in need of birthday cards (who isn't?) so I thought I would start there.

They are really quite easy to make. Cut cardstock 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". Fold in half and then fold one side back to the center fold. The strip is actually cut 1" x 11" and scored at 2-3/4" and 5"1/2 inches. EASY PEASY!!! I attached the balloons with a small strip of window sheet with a glue dot.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #201-Halloween Peek A Boo

#201

 

Welcome back!!! Our home sweet home challenge is Halloweenish (is that even a word?) Since I do not send out Halloween cards I have a very limited supply of Halloween stamp sets but I did buy the Halloween Cookie Cutter Set that is amazing!!!

I made a peek-a-boo card this week. These have been on my list to make for awhile now. I should have taken a pic of my craft room floor. I think I wasted 6 sheets of cardstock. I am a visual learner and so I you tubed this particular card. I don't know if my heart just wasn't it or not really paying attention. GEESSHHH!!! It really is not that hard but MAN!!!! I did finish it and am very happy with it. I think I now have all the measurements memorized from making so many "mistakes". UPDATE: THE CARD ITSELF IS NOT HARD. I SHOULD HAVE MADE MYSELF MORE CLEAR. I WAS TRYING TO MAKE THE OPENING MUCH BIGGER-THEREFORE, THE MEASUREMENTS WERE NOT WORKING. ONCE I FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS IT WAS PERFECT. I  RECEIVED SOME EMAILS ASKING ABOUT THIS AND I DIDN'T WANT TO DISSUADE ANYONE FROM TRYING TO MAKE THIS!!

I couldn't find a sentiment I liked to go with the skeleton and mummy so what's a stamper to do? I made my own. I printed out a whole sheet. If you would like these to print here they are  Download Timetounwind.

I also wished that I had some muslin that I could have tied around the card in a knot. Oh well, next time!!

Recipe:

Stamp Set: Cookie Cutter Halloween, Monster Munchies (retired)

Ink: Basic Black

Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Brights DSP

Accessories: Big Shot, Layering Ovals framelits, paper trimmer, tear and tape, dimensionals, SNAIL, Flourish thinlits, 1-1/2" circle punch, 1-3/4" circle punch

 

 

 


Under The Weather

It seems like at this time every year the seasonal germies and crud start and I always have a shortage of get well cards. The hostess set My Hero has several occasions in it, one being perfect for these types of cards. If you are looking for a versatile set you'll want to get your hands on this set!! This is also a RMHC stamp set which Stampin' Up! so gratiously donates $3 from the sale of each set to a GREAT cause!!! I also got to reach for my new Umbrella Weather framelits.

I love the cut away card. It is just a different shaped A2 card.
