Simple Card with a Bow

Do you need a super quick, 5 minute card?  This one will do it for you!  Choose your 1-1/4″ Ribbon and some coordinating card stock.  Score one side at 1-1/2″ and fold in the other side so the edges meet.  Tie your big bow around the card.  Slip a 3/4″ piece of Sticky Strip under the Ribbon on the back two sides so the Ribbon will not fall off the card.  You can stamp and decorate the inside of the card if desired.  Make sure and take advantage of the Retiring List and get those Wish List items before they are gone!

I am behind in posting some of my Paper Pumpkin projects.  Here is one that was meant for Christmas.  The other side of the big Tag says “Noel”.  Since I just made these cards Saturday, I did not keep with the Christmas theme and used some of my other stamps and tools.  There were plenty of Dimensionals included in the Kit for me to be my usual “Dimensional Queen” self!  I will let you know above each card the extra things I used that were not in the Kit.  Yes, the little stars came stitched together already.  A Real Red Stampin’ Spot (1″ ink pad) came with the Kit.  I did use Glue Dots to attach a few of the stars in each strand.

Note:  Sale-a-bration items are FREE until March 31, 2014 with a $50 purchase from My Online Store.  Sale-a-bration item numbers can only be used after your product total reaches $50.  Choose ONE Sale-a-bration item for each $50.  HERE is a Sale-a-bration PDF so you can see all your choices.  The Bundles at the front are suggested to help you reach your $50 product totals.  The FREE Choices start on page 12.

So Very Grateful

I don’t know about you, but I am in the mood for some Spring Flowers!  The So Very Grateful stamp set has the beautiful Flowers I have been looking for!  I even got to watercolor them with my blender pen!  Enjoy!!
So Very Grateful Spring Flowers

Stamps:  So Very Grateful  w#133050  c#133053
Ink:  StayzOn Black
Markers:  Pacific Point
Pool Party
Blushing Bride
Wild Wasabi
Garden Green
Blender Pen #102845

Tempting Turquoise
Whisper White
Big Shot:  Window Frames Collection Framelits #129021
Adorning Accents Edgelits #125595
Bitty Banners Framelits#129267
Other:  Dimensionals
SNAIL Adhesive

1.  Cut your Pacific Point card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Tempting Turquoise at 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  Cut two opposite sides using your Adorning Accents Edgelits.  Make sure the “bump out” is in the same place on each side.  This is where having two comes in nicely!
3.  Stamp your Flower image on Whisper White card stock with StazOn Black Ink.  I colored with the Marker brush tip in the spot on the flowers I wanted to be darker.  I then used the Blender Pen to blend the color in the white area.  Be careful and gentle as too much pressure or working in an area too long will cause the paper to start coming apart.  I did the center flower and medium rose in Pacific Point.  I did the smaller blueish flowers in Pool Party.  The small pink flowers were in Blushing Bride.  (I think.)  I just colored the leaves without using the Blender Pen.
4.  When finished coloring, cut out the Flowers with the desired Window Frames Framelit.  Also cut TWO of the same size Framelit from Pacific Point card stock.
5.  Take the two Pacific Point Window Frames and cut them in half.  Then trim straight down from the outside of the points.  Adhere one at a time to the back of your stamped Whisper White Window Frame leaving the desired mat around the White.  Continue until all four pieces are adhered to the back.  HERE is a link showing the same technique with the Top Note die.
6.  Stamp your sentiment In Pacific Point ink on Whisper White card stock.  Cut out with the coordinating Bitty Banners Framelit.
7.  Position all pieces as desired and adhere them to the card front.
8.  Enjoy your brightly colored Spring Flowers card!

Happy Stamping!

Wildflower Meadows with Vellum and Candy Dots

I wanted to try a different look using the Wildflower Meadows stamp set and Embossing folder.  I used White Vellum Card Stock to stamp and emboss on.  I really like the look.

Wildflower Meadow Card with Vellum

Stamps:  Wild Flower Meadow w#129165  c#129168  (Bundle with Embossing Folder
w#132735  c#132985  )
Markers:  Garden Green
Melon Mambo
Tempting Turquoise
Card Stock:  Coastal Cabana
White Vellum #101956
Big Shot:  Wildflower Meadows Embossing Folder #129376  (See Bundle above)
Other:  Brights Candy Dots #130931
Glue Dots
Heat Tool & Clear Embossing Powder (recommended)

1.  Cut your Coastal Cabana card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your White Vellum card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Color the flowers, stems, and bird on your stamp with the desired color Marker.  Breathe several times over the part of the stamp the you colored.  Lay stamp on your table, rubber side up.  Put Vellum card stock in the desired position on stamp.  Hold in place with a couple of fingers.  Now rub the card stock with either a Clear Mount Block, a Wood Block, or your fingers.  I prefer using a Clear Mount Block because it glides over card stock more easily without moving the card stock.  Move your fingers to the half of the card stock you just rubbed and do the other side.  This technique will give a great impression on all your larger and Background stamps.
3.  You need to get the ink dry now.  There are several options.  1st Option.  Use your Heat Tool.  Keep it moving so you don’t burn your Vellum.  This really takes quite a while as the ink is very wet.  Sometimes this just doesn’t work no matter how long you try.  I did get ink marks on my embossing folder.  2nd Option.  Use Clear Embossing Powder over your stamped images and melt with your Heat Tool.  This seals in the color and is much quicker!
4.  Line up your Wildflower Meadow Embossing Folder over your stamped flowers aligning the flowers and stems as desired.  Run through your Big Shot.  If you get ink on your embossing folder, just run it under some water or use your Stampin’ Mist and a tissue to clean it.
5.  Place a Glue Dot one the back side of the Vellum in each corner.  Adhere to your card front.   Now place a Candy Dot over each of the Glue Dots.
6.  Admire your quick and easy All-Occasion Card!
