Gnome Birthday

There are loads of people in my family with July birthdays so I needed another card so out came the gnomes again. This is almost a one layer card, it could have been if I didn’t use the Stampin’ Blends to color in the images. I started by stamping the gnome then I created a mask to cover him before stamping the mushroom house. For the background, I masked both images before using ink and blending brushes to create the background. I die cut a piece of basic white cardstock with the rounded Basic Border and used it to mask off the areas I didn’t want to color. Then I stamped some grass and colored in the images.

Supplies:
Stamp Sets – Art Gallery, Happy Hedgehogs, Kindest Gnomes
Die Cutting & Embossing – Basic Borders dies
Ink – Balmy Blue stamp pad, Granny Apple Green stamp pad, Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad
Paper – Basic White cardstock, Night of Navy cardstock
Coloring Tools – Balmy Blue Light, Bronze, Cherry Cobbler Dark, Crumb Cake Light & Dark, Ivory, Night of Navy Light & Dark, and Smoky Slate Light & Dark Stampin’ Blends; Blending Brushes

I saw a reverse easel card by Vickie Lou Designs and I wanted to recreated it but in a different size. I modified her card to be 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ when folded. Since it’s graduation time, I chose to make a congratulations card that is somewhat masculine.

  3. Using the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder, emboss the piece of Night of Navy cardstock.
  4. Die cut the Gray Granite layers and the inside piece of Basic White using the Stitched Rectangles dies.
  5. Fold the scored piece of Gray Granite cardstock in half at the 5 ½” score line and then fold back on the 2 ¾” score line.
  6. Adhere the DSP to the inside large section.
  7. Adhere the embossed piece of Night of Navy to the folded back card base.
  8. Adhere the stamped and die cut Basic White cardstock to the Gray Granite layer then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere this panel to the folded back part of the cardbase.
  9. Adhere the inside piece of Basic White to the DSP making sure it’s behind the Gray Granite panel.
  10. Adhere the Basic White stamped greeting piece to the Gray Granite layer.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere to the inside of the cardbase making sure to keep it behind the front panel.
  11. Add some Polished Dots around the stamped image.

You Are Lovely

I’m still playing with the Art Gallery stamps and dies. Today I’m using Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 463. The flowers were stamped using Magenta Madness stamped off once and then full strength stamping for the highlight stamp. I cut the flowers out and glued them to a piece I’d stamped using Just Jade. Behind the flowers is a label I die cut out of vellum. I used the Stitched Greenery die on the piece of gold foil for some texture.

Stamp Sets – Art Gallery
Die Cutting & Embossing – Floral Gallery dies, Hippo & Friends dies, Stitched Greenery die
Ink – Just Jade stamp pad, Magenta Madness stamp pad

Art Gallery Thinking of You

I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 525. The background was created using the Stitched Greenery die and I pulled out my Art Gallery stamp for the focal point. For the flower, I used Rich Razzleberry and stamped off once to create a lighter version of the ink. After die cutting, I layered the flower on three Just Jade cardstock die cuts. I really like the shadow that creates.

Supplies:
Stamp Sets – Art Gallery
Die Cutting & Embossing – Floral Gallery dies, Stitched Greenery die
Ink – Just Jade stamp pad, Rich Razzleberry stamp pad
Paper – Basic White Thick cardstock, Just Jade cardstock

January Birthday Cards

This month I used the January Sheetload of Cards (which is also Mojo Monday sketch 538) for my birthday and anniversary cards. I did change it up a little to use a stitched scalloped rectangle instead of the square, it looked better with my image.

I stamped the flower image from the Blessings of Home stamp set and colored it in using my Blender pens. I like how soft the image is when I dip my Blender pen in my stamp pads and color with it. For most of the cards, the side to side panel is 1 1/2 inches up from the bottom, apparently on one of them it’s less.

Supplies:
Stamp Sets – Blessings of Home, Art Gallery, Celebrating You
Die Cutting & Embossing – Flowers of Home dies, Stitched So Sweetly dies
Ink – Garden Green stamp pad, Pale Papaya stamp pad, Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad
Paper – Heart & Home Designer Series Paper, Basic White Thick cardstock, Basic Gray Cardstock
Coloring Tools – Blender pens
Tools – Paper Trimmer, Simply Scored, Stamparatus, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
Adhesive – Stampin’ SEAL, Stampin’ Dimensionals, liquid glue

Happy Birthday to my Daughter

Yesterday was my daughter’s birthday and I made this card for her. Her favorite color is turquoise so I pulled out Pool Party and Bermuda Bay to create the card. I cut off the bottom leaf of the floral spray from the Art Gallery stamp set so it would fit behind the sentiment. The “Happy Birthday” comes from the retired Butterfly Basics stamp set that I will likely never part with because I love the font and size of the sentiment. For the background, I used the Pretty Flowers embossing folder to add some texture. There is clear Wink of Stella glitter on the darker parts of the flowers but as ever, it’s hard to photograph.

I’m playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (#AHSC442) again.

Supplies:
Stamp Sets – Art Gallery, Butterfly Basics (retired)
Die Cutting & Embossing – Floral Gallery dies, Pretty Flowers embossing folder
Ink – Bermuda Bay ink pad, Pool Party ink pad
Paper – Basic White Thick cardstock, Bermuda Bay cardstock
Coloring Tools – clear Wink of Stella
Tools – Paper Trimmer, Simply Scored, Stamparatus, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
Adhesive – Stampin’ SEAL, Stampin’ Dimensionals, liquid glue

Technique Squad Blog Hop – Northern Lights

I find this a challenging and messy technique. My fingers are covered in Night of Navy ink. Last month I did this technique using blending brushes, but this time I’m using sponges (I prefer the control I can get with sponges). I really like using the Shimmery White cardstock for blending because the coating on it helps and the shimmer looks like stars.

I watch LeeAnn Greff’s video for my inspiration to create the background today. I like how she suggested adding the Night of Navy ink between the other colors. My background was created using Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, and Night of Navy inks. For the second card, I used Mossy Meadow ink to darken the trees more.

I also included a picture of my cardstock before I added the Night of Navy ink.

My before adding the night of navy ink

This is the type of sponge I use. I cut it into 6 pieces and attach a piece of cardstock with label. You can find them at your local craft store.
