Hooray Birthday CardSUPPLIES:
*=available June 1, 2016
Stamps:
  *Confetti Celebration   Wood #141510, Clear #142034
Ink:  *Emerald Envy #141396
Card Stock:  *Emerald Envy #141415
Whisper White
Big Shot:  Confetti embossing folder #140592

Punches:  2″ Circle  #133782
Confetti Star #135861
Adhesives:  Tombow Glue
Stampin’ Dimensionals

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Emerald Green card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Watch this Video if you want more instructions on making a card base.
2.  Cut your Whisper White card stock at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Get your embossing folder.  Find the smooth side where the parts to be embossed are lower than the flat part.  Use your Emerald Envy ink pad to ink up this side of your embossing folder.  Don’t worry about keeping the center oval clean as it will be covered up.  Put your Whisper White card stock on the UNINKED side of the embossing folder and get it in the position you want – with the Oval in the center.  Close your embossing folder and run through your Big Shot.  Set aside to dry.  Clean your embossing folder with running water from your sink.
3.  Stamp “Hooray” and “Happy Birthday” in Emerald Envy ink on Whisper White card stock.  Punch out the Hooray with a 2″ Circle Punch.  Cut out the Happy Birthday with the Banner Framelit from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set.  Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of both pieces.
4.  Choose the Oval Framelit that fits best inside the Oval on the embossing folder and cut it out of Emerald Envy card stock.
5.  Now it is time to put everything together and turn it into a card.
~Use Tombow Glue to attach your embossed card stock to your card base.  Center it so the card base shows equally around your embossed piece.
~Add your cut out Oval over the Oval space on your embossed piece.  I used Tombow Glue.
~Decide the position of your “Hooray” and “Happy Birthday”.  Remove the Stampin’ Dimensional backs and attach.
6.  If you are like me and did not leave enough room on both sides of your Happy Birthday so it could be in the center when you cut it out, then you can punch out a few Stars from the Confetti Stars Punch and glue them to your Happy Birthday Banner.  😉

Have fun making your own Hooray Happy Birthday Card to celebrate the next birthday in your family or for a friend!

Happy Card Making!

I Love You Valentine Card

This pretty, quick & easy I Love You Valentine Card is sure to be a hit.  You can change the card base and card front colors if this will go to a man.  Just make sure the color of your Hearts shows up well against the card front color.
I LOVE You Valentine CardSUPPLIES:
Card Stock:  Pink Pirouette
Red Glimmer Paper
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
Big Shot:  Perfect Dots Embossing Folder
Little Letters Thinlits

6.  Lay out your LOVE Hearts and the rest of your letters where you want them on your card front.  Glue the I YOU directly onto the card front.  Attach the LOVE Hearts with Dimensionals.

Seasonal Thinlits Ghost Card

This was a fun Halloween Ghost card to make.  It did take a little longer than most cards because of the sponging technique, but it turned out cute.  Try making one for a spooky little someone.
Halloween Ghost cardSUPPLIES:
Inks:  Daffodil Delight
Pumpkin Pie
Tangelo Twist
Chocolate Chip
Card Stock:  Whisper White
Tangelo Twist
Basic Black
Big Shot:  Woodland embossing folder #139673
Seasonal Thinlits #139658
Punches:  1-3/8″ Circle
1/4″ Handheld Circle
Other:  5/8″ Whisper White Satin Ribbon #134549
4 Stampin’ Sponge wedges (1/2 Stamping Sponge)
Fast Fuse
Tombow Glue or Fine Tip Glue Pen
Stampin’ Dimensionals

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Tangelo Twist card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Whisper White card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.
3.  Sponge your Woodland embossing folder on the inside of the part that has the Sizzix label.
NOTE:  Pay attention to the direction your folder faces.  The “Bottom” of the embossing folder image is at the fold.  The “Top” of the image is at the upper open edge.
~Chocolate Chip ink = Tree Stripes & Tree edges including branches
~Daffodil Delight ink = Top of scene on the flat part between the trees
~Pumpkin Pie ink = Center of scene on the flat part between the trees
~Tangelo Twist = Bottom of scene on the flat part between the trees
~Take some time and blend where the colors overlap.
4.  Remoisten the sponged side of the embossing folder with your breath.  Place your Whisper White card front inside the folder on the uninked side so you can line it up so the trees are straight.  Run through your Big Shot.  Oooh and Aaaaw at how nice it turned out.  Glue to your card base.
5.  Ghost.  Cut your Whisper White card stock into a triangle with the bottom edge being 2-1/2″ wide and the top point being over 3″ tall.  Stick the top point into a circle punch from the outside so only the point gets punched off to form the rounded top of the Ghost.  Run Fast Fuse down the outside edges and cover with the Satin Ribbon.  Run Fast Fuse over the center parts and cover with two more strips of Satin Ribbon.  Trim the rounded top and flat bottom with your scissors.  Add two 1/4″ Basic Black punched circles for eyes.  Add Dimensionals to the back of your Ghost.
6.  Cut your Spooky with the Seasonal Thinlit and Tangelo Twist card stock.  I used the Precision Plate and also put Parchment Paper in between the  card stock and the Thinlit.
7.  Lay out the Ghost and the Spooky in the desired positions.  Attach the Ghost with Dimensionals and the Spooky with either Tombow Glue or the Fine Tipped Glue Pen.
8. Add a fun Halloween sentiment to the inside of the card if desired.
9.  You can also emboss the back flap of your envelope if desired.  Watch this Video for instructions.
