Tin of Cards-Last White card base-Congrats

This is actually the last card (16th card) I made using supplies from the Tin of Cards Project Kit.  I had been thinking of using the swirly line stamp to stamp the card background.  I had also tried using the Deco Label Framelit to make a Pool Party striped embossed mat for another card, but didn’t like it so I used it here.  Have fun!  Remember to check back every Wednesday for another card from the Tin of Cards Project Kit.
Tin of Cards-Swirly Stamp BackgroundSUPPLIES:
Tin of Cards Project Kit  #138378
~Solid White card base
~Congrats circle
~Gold Heart

Pool Party Marker & card stock
Dimensionals
Glue Dots
Big Shot:  Deco Label Framelits #130102
Stylish Stripes embossing folder #132174

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Get out a solid White card base.  Stamp the swirly line stamp in Island Indigo ink diagonally starting at one corner.  Continue stamping the swirly lines about 1″ apart.  Sometimes you will need to stamp again to finish the line.  Repeat until the lines are complete.
2.  Cut a Deco Label Framlit from Pool Party card stock.  Then run it through your Big Shot with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder.  Color the raised stripes with your Pool Party Marker.  Attach to your card front with Dimensionals.
3.  Choose your round sentiment.  Attach a Gold Glimmer Paper Heart using Glue Dots.  Attach your sentiment to the Deco Label with Dimensionals.
4.  You are finished!  Now either file it in your Tin to use later, or give to someone right away.

Happy Card Making!

Bootiful Occasions Cowgirl Boot

I have been wanting to use this Cowgirl Boot stamp for a while and finally got around to making it.  It was a pretty quick and simple card to make!  Make one today for yourself or someone you know.
Bootiful Cowgirl Boot

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Bootiful Occasions  w#131967  c#126597
Ink:  VersaMark

Chocolate Chip
Gold Foil Sheets #132622

Other:  Basics Hodgepodge Clips #133765

Heat Tool #129053
Tombow Glue
Dimensionals

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Baked Brown Sugar card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Watch this video if you need the basics on card bases.
2.  Cut your Baked Brown Sugar card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Get your Woodgrain embossing folder and your Baked Brown Sugar ink pad.  Rub your ink pad directly on the inside front (with the Stampin’ Up! and Sizzix logos) until it is nicely covered with ink.  Position your card front on the clean part of the embossing folder.  Close the folder and run through your Big Shot as usual.  Remove your card stock.  Admire the fun way your card stock is now colored to look more like wood!  Clean your embossing folder by running it under tap water and drying with a paper towel.  You can also spray it with Stampin’ Mist and wipe dry with a paper towel or wipe off with a baby wipe.  Attach your embossed card front to your card base with Tombow Glue.
3.  Back to the Big Shot to cut out your Framelits.  Cut the Deco Label from Chocolate Chip card stock.  To cut your Gold Foil Star you will need to put a scrap piece of card stock on top of the Gold Foil as it tends to pick up all the marks from your cutting plates if you just cut it by itself.
4.  Put a Star Clip on your Deco Label and attach it to your card front with Tombow Glue.  Attach your Gold Star with Dimensionals.
5.  Stamp your Boot on Chocolate Chip card stock using VersaMark ink.  Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder.  Remove excess.  Melt with Heat Tool.  Cut out with your paper snips.  Attach to your Gold Star with Dimensionals.

Happy Cowgirl Days!
