Simple Anniversary Card

I thought this would be a cute anniversary card. I absolutely love The Colorado Craft Company’s Lovely Legs Stamp’s… AMAZING! I Wanted to add a little more to it. So I opted to do a light heart stencil.

I used Simon Says Stamp’s ‘Heart Layers’ Stencil, The Stamp Market’s Blending Brush and Altenew’s Heart Beat Crisp Dye Ink for the stenciling. I taped down the stencil to a panel of a neenah Solar white cardstock using some purple tape. The stencil wasn’t big enough to cover my entire panel, so I had to shift the stencil a couple of times to get full coverage but this stencil is extremely easy to line up.

After finishing with the stencil, I let it dry for a minute and then usedmy anti-static powder bag and covered the panel. I took the The Colorado Craft Company’s ‘Lovely Legs – Happy Valentine’s day’ stamp set and Versamark Ink and stamped unto the panel. Then I uwed Brutus Monroe’s Gilded Embossing Powder and heat embossed the image.

I stamped the inside of an A2 card base using the same Colorado Craft Company’s Happy Valentine’s Day stamp set and Simon Says Stamp’s Intense Black Dye Ink.

I wanted a bit more colour, so I took a couple stripes of Gina K Designs Cardstock in Red Hot and adhered them to either side of the panel. Then I adhered my stamped panel. T the fro t of the card base.. Finishing the card.

To add a little colour to the envelope I added two strips of heart washi tape.

I cut the edges off of the washi tape that hung over the sides of the envelope and voila!

Hello Baby Girls…

Two week old Twin girls need a warm welcome into the world. Although they shared the same womb that doesn’t mean they need to share the same card!

Card #1:

Using Stampin Up’s First Steps Stamp set, I stamped the tiny footprints and a beautiful sentiment using Versamark and heat embossed it all using Brutus Monroe’s Sterling Embossing powder on Simon Says Stamp’s Cardstock in Cotton Pink. I used a heart edge border punch to decorate the edge.

I adhered this onto a panel of Recollections’ Iridescent White cardstock measuring approximately 4.25×5 inches. I applied a panel of craft foam to the panel and attached everything to a card base measuring 4.25×5.5 inches… Done!

I absolutely LOVE this stamp. Sooo sweet. It could be used as both a welcome or sympathy card. But this one is definitely for a happy welcome!

I stamped the both the image in Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Brutus Monroe’s Sterling Embossing powder. For the sentiment I stamped in Catherine Pooler Dye Inks in ‘It’s a Girl’ and heat embossed using Brutus Monroe’s ‘Fairy Dust’ embossing powder.

I then used an EK Success edge punch to decorate the trim of the main panel and adhered it to a panel of pink glitter cardstock measuring approximately 4 x5.25 inches. I backed it with craft foam and attached it to a card base measuring approximately 4.25×5.5 inches… Card #2 complete!

Happy Canada Day!

Feeling a bit patriotic today… Happy Canada Day to everyone celebrating. For those south of the border July 4th is right around the corner so enjoy!

I’m celebrating this year with a couple of simple cards.

The first card is reminiscent of the Canadian flag, just a little more on the artsy side.

I prepped a 4.25″x5.5″ (A2 size) panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock with an anti-static powder bag. Then I centered the Maple Leaf stamp from Simon Says Stamp’s (SSS) Fractile leaf stamp set. I stamped the image twice using Versamark Ink in my MISTI Stamping tool and heat embossed using Recollections’ Ruby embossing powder.

Once the paper cooled, I used the medium sized brush stroke in the SSS’s ‘Brush Stroke Messages’ stamp set. Using Catherine Pooler’s Rockin Red dye ink, I stamped the image twice on either side of embossed Maple Leaf.

I trimmed the panel down slightly and voila!

Featuring:

– Simon Says Stamp’s ‘Fractile Leaves’ stamp set

– Simon Says Stamp’s ‘Brush Stroke Messages’ stamp set

-Catherine Pooler Dye Inks

– Tsukineko’s Versamark Ink

– Recollections’ ‘Ruby’ Tinsel Embossing powder

Another quick and simple card to celebrate Canada Day… In reverse. Pretty much all of the colours are in reversed.

This time I used Flora and Fauna’s ‘Texture 7’ stamp set. I stamped using SSS ‘Schoolhouse Red’ Dye Ink and then again below. I did need to uae my MISTI to stamp about 3 times to get the coverage I was looking for.

I prepped my card panel using my anti-static bag and heat embossed the maple leaf image with Brutus Monroe’s ‘Alabaster White’ Embossing powder.

I trimmed the panel down to approximately 3.75″x5″ and adherrd it to a panel of SSS Schoolhouse Red cardstock measuring approximately 4×5.25″ to allow for a small border of red. I then attached everything to a card base.. Overall card measures 4.25×5.5″…and I’m done!
