Too Kind

MayMnT1Here’s another card I wanted to show you all before things totally retire.  This uses the I Am Me dsp ( just like my card on Sunday) along with the Needlepoint Embossing Folders.  It is based on this card by Lee Conrey.

This was one of the other cards we did as a make and take at my May workshop.  So much fun!  The colors on this are just so happy!  I like cheerful cards like this one!

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Calypso Coral polka dots (I Am Me dsp) – 1 x 5 1/2, add to card front.
  • Whisper White – 3 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Run each side through the Scallop Needlepoint Embossing Folder.
  • Stamp stem using Wild Wasabi and the flowers using Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral.  The greeting is stamped using Basic Black.
  • Add strips of Calypso Coral – 5 1/2 x 1/2 to EACH side and add panel to card front using dimensionals.

See…another quick and easy card!

Wetlands

mnt1Okay…I have to tell you…I LOVE this card!  This was another make and take for a workshop I had back in April.  I wanted to use this set because although I’ve had it for awhile, I really haven’t used it all that much.  I also wanted to do a masculine card.

The funny thing about this card is I sat down to exactly copy a card I had seen on Pinterest (yes…I do spend WAAAAY too much time on there!) but for some strange reason it didn’t turn out AT ALL like the one I was going to copy!  LOL!!!  That does happen to me!

Here’s the details:

  • Pear Pizzazz  4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Smoky Slate – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp the Hardwood Background stamp in Basic Grey, sponge a bit with Smoky Slate, layer onto Basic Black 3 3/4 x 5, wrap Linen Thread around it then add to card front.
  • Whisper White largest Chalk Talk tag.  Stamp goose in StazOn Jet Black, mask it then stamp the grassy stuff behind it.  Color using Smoky Slate and Old Olive.
  • Use SAB Bitty Banner Punch – Old Olive and Basic Black, add behind tag then add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Tie some Linen Thread in Basic Metal Button (oh…I’m soooo glad these made it!) and add to card front using glue dot.
  • Stamp greeting using StazOn Jet Black on Pear Pizzazz, punch out with large oval punch and add to card front to finish off.
Set(s): Wetlands, Hardwood Background
Paper: Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Smoky Slate
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Basic Grey, Smoky Slate, Pear Pizzazz
Other: Chalk Talk Framelits, Basic Metal Buttons, Linen Thread, Bitty Banner Punch (SAB), Large Oval Punch, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

Four You

mnt2Here’s a card I designed as a make and take for my April workshop.  I was featuring the Envelope Punch Board and wanted to show making ‘bows’ using it.

Those of you who know me, know how much I just LOVE the clean and simple look and even though is card is Basic Grey for the base, it is still a great CAS card!  What I love about this card is the color accent, just change the color and you have a whole new look!

Here’s the details:

  • Basic Grey: 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 2 1/2 x 3 1/4
  • Black/White diagonal strip dsp (Kaelidoscope dsp) – 2 1/2 x 1 add to Whisper White.
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Black.  Add to Basic Black 2 5/8 x 3 3/8.  Add to card base using dimensionals.
  • Bow is made using Melon Mambo dsp –  a 5 x 1 piece punched at 2 1/2 on and then at the end (you can go on Pinterest and find MANY videos on how to make these bows) and 3 1/4 x 1 punched a 1 5/8 and then the ends.  Middle of bow – 1/4 x 1.  NOTE:  I layered 4 HALF dimensionals between the bow pieces so they won’t totally squish if being mailed.
  • Add finished bow to card.
  • Punch out Melon Mambo Bitty Butterfly add to card front and add Basic Black Candy Dot to center of butterfly to finish up.

What a fun card!  Have fun making it!
