Sending Sunshine

I was playing with the June 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit called Sending Sunshine. It had so many leftover pieces I needed to make a few extra cards.

The first card is my least favorite recreation. Apparently my Crushed Curry marker is dry so my lines didn’t come out well in the first card so I went over them with the Mango Melody dark Stampin’ Blend. I think that would have worked better if I’d done it before putting the sun on. The second card is also using Mango Melody but this time I did it before the sun. The last card is using the lines stamp from the kit along with gold embossing powder and that one turned out much better.

This next card turned out a little better. I used one of the basic stencils, versamark, and gold embossing powder to create a polka dot pattern for the background. For the second card, I used a line stamp from Swirly Frames to create a line pattern. For the last card, I cut 1/4″ strips of gold foil and attached them to the card front.

The third card was a lot of trial and error. I put drops of Crushed Curry and Poppy Parade and rubbing alcohol into Stampin’ Spritzers. It was a lot of spraying, pouring, spraying, pouring. Since the ink is dye ink, it tends to stay put and doesn’t more as well as alcohol ink but I think these turned out pretty well. The third card in my recreations is on watercolor paper with watered down ink.

I did learn from this not to drop the reinkers directly onto the paper no matter how wet it was because the ink would stay there. Not exactly what I was going for.

This last card is my favorite, I went to inking with makeup brushes and I’m much better at that. I covered the paper with Crushed Curry and then added some Poppy Parade to it. It’s too bad I don’t have the Tailored Tag punch because I think it would match this label perfectly.

Many Mates Just Thinking of You

I thought my last Many Mates & Many Medallions card was just okay but this one I love. I pretty much love everything with Blackberry Bliss and shimmer paint. πŸ™‚

I die cut the Many Medallions background from Blackberry Bliss and then used a makeup brush to ink it with Blackberry Bliss ink to make it a little darker. Then I sprayed it with a mixture of Frost White shimmer paint and alcohol to give it a shimmer. Again I forgot to use adhesive sheets so I put liquid glue on the back of the die cut to mount it on a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ Blackberry Bliss. I then popped it up on dimensionals before putting it on a Blackberry Bliss card base.

I used gold embossing powder for the sentiment and pulled out my gold foil sheets to add some more shine. The floral swirl is a hidden gem found in the the Well Written dies.

Many Mates Happy Birthday

I really love background dies so I immediately bought the Many Mates & Many Medallions bundle. I was really hoping that the smaller borders would fit on the big die cut but I haven’t found a way for them to line up yet. Because I couldn’t line them up, I cut out each of the individual squares from one of the borders and placed them on the background.

I stamped the Happy Birthday in Blackberry Bliss and colored in using clear Wink of Stella. If you want to use Wink of Stella on these stamped sentiments, you should either wait longer than I did or emboss them because you can see my ink ran some.

I used liquid glue on the backs of the pieces but it would have been so much easier if I’d thought ahead and put adhesives sheets on the cardstock before die cutting.

So Sentimental Monochromatic Swap Card

I participated in a swap this month using either carry-over items or new catalog items. I chose to use a carry-over stamp set. I’m using the Mojo Monday Sketch #536 again for this card. My mojo is still running low so I’ve learned that the easiest way for me to work around that is to use sketches and apparently monochromatic color schemes.

I have three versions of my card. First is my original design. I embossed a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel and adhered it to the front of the card and I used the Scalloped Lace Trim.

I normally don’t like to emboss my card base but in this instance I thought it looked better to have the entire front of the card embossed. I also didn’t have enough of the Scalloped Lace Trim for all of the swap cards, so out it went too. Here is my second card and my swap card.

I also made one more card like my original with the Scalloped Lace Trim but the whole front of the card embossed. This one is my favorite. You probably can’t see it in the photos but the butterflies have Wink of Stella on them.

Say Goodbye to Breathtaking Bouquet

It’s no secret if you follow my blog that I loved the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp. I was cleaning off my crafting table and I found a leftover piece of watercolor paper embossed with this stamp. Well, I got out my pigment sprinkles and I attempted to watercolor on the stamped image. It’s really hard to see white embossing on white paper but I gave it a try. I much prefer just using the pigment sprinkles and a spray bottle. πŸ™‚

After I finished the watercolor, I die cut the image and sprayed it with a mixture of Frost White Shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol to give it a little shimmer. The sentiment comes from the retiring Kindness & Compassion stamp set. I die cut the edge of the card base with the border scalloped die from the Stitched Be Mine dies.

Check out these projects I made using the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp.

Say Goodbye to the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack

The Magnolia Lane card pack coordinates with the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes and makes these cards so quick and easy to put together. Most of the cards are made with just the 3″ x 4″ card on the front popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. On the insides I used the 4″ x 6″ cards.

I love to buy the Memories & More card packs but I forget to use them. I recently sent a make & take using these Memories & More cards along with paper from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. Each card will be a little different because there are only two of each design in the card pack. Here was my example card for them.

Very Versailles Recessed Panel Card

I’ve posted a recessed panel card before but I thought it would work well with this stamp set and a torn edge.

I stamped the script background on Very Vanilla, tore about an inch off, and then inked the edges with Crumb Cake. I put a piece of the Pressed Petals DSP on the cardbase for the background in the recess and popped the panels up. The flowers come from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and cut out with the Bouquet Bunch dies. The leaves are from the Leaf Punch and I used the Banner Triple Punch on the sentiment. For the larger flowers, I stamped using Rocco Rose, used the dauber to put Merry Merlot on the edges and stamped again.

Very Versailles Love

This card was inspired by a Jennifer McGuire video where she was stenciling and masking. I die cut a heart out of Very Vanilla cardstock, masked off the all but the heart on the front of my card, then stamped. I’d recommend using the largest heart die from the Stitched Be Mine dies and not the one that just does stitches like I did. πŸ™‚ I used a craft knife to finish cutting out the heart. I stamped the words, frame, leaves, and a heart inside the heart before inking with Crumb Cake. Then I put the heart in place, removed the outside, and inked around with Soft Sea Foam. That didn’t set off the heart well enough so I stamped the leaves and added the heart frame. I finished it off with the sentiment on dimensionals. I was trying to make a one layer card, maybe next time. πŸ™‚
