Celebrate Gold Shaker Card

This is the Celebrate Gold Shaker Card I made for my birthday.  I really wanted to use the gold flakes and the gold Bundle of Love DSP.
Gold Heart Shaker Card Birthday

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock:  Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP)#144143
Thick Very Vanilla
Elegant Eggplant
Window Sheet #142314
Big Shot:  Celebrate You Thinlits #146840
Sweetheart Embossing Folder #143705
Sweet & Sassy Framelits #141707
Embellishments:  Gold Glitter Flakes #146816
Adhesives:  Fast Fuse or SNAIL
Foam Adhesive Strips #141825
Tombow Glue

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Thick Very Vanilla card base at 5-12″ x 8-1/2″.  SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your patterned paper at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Run through your Big Shot with the Sweethear embossing folder.  Use the coordinating Sweet & Sassy Heart Framelit to cut out the center heart.  While at your Big Shot, cut out the Celebrate from Elegant Eggplant cardstock.  Glue onto the bottom of the DSP.
3.  Cut a Window Sheet at 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″.  Attach to the back of your DSP Heart cut out with SNAIL around all four sides.
4.  Attach Foam Adhesive Strips on the DSP back about 1/8″ from the edge of the Heart cut out.  Make sure there are NO gaps in the Foam Adhesive Strip otherwise the Gold Flakes will escape and get everywhere!  Also put the Foam Adhesive Strips around the edge of the card.
NOTE:  If you do not want the Gold Glitter Flakes to stick to the inside of the Foam Adhesive Strips,  either run your fingers along the adhesive sides or run your Embossing Buddy along the sides to remove the sticky there.  I personally like the Gold around the Heart edges so I didn’t do this.
5.  Lay your DSP on your card base to determine where to put your pile of Gold Glitter Flakes.  Remove the DSP.  Put your Gold Glitter Flakes on the card base in the center of where the Heart will cover.  Remove the Adhesive backing and put on your card base.  Press firmly.  Now you can “test” out to see if the Shaker Card works.  🙂
Your card is finished.
6.  Envelope options:  Use the Embossing folder on the envelope flap.

Always & Forever Man’s Valentine Card

This would be a great Valentine Card for your favorite guy!  Most guys (and some gals) love wood and nature.  So make this card with the fun Wood paper and this stamp set with a Tree stump.  You can replace the retired (oops!) Jute Twine with the 1/4″ Copper Trim or Linen Thread.
Always & Forever Men's Valentine card

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Always & Forever  Wood Mount #143811, Clear Mount #143814
Inks:  Early Espresso
Real Red
Blends Markers:  Crumb Cake Combo Pack #144601
Old Olive Combo Pack #144597
Cardstock:  Thick Whisper White
Wood Textures 6×6 Designer Series Paper #144177
Trim:  Linen Thread  #1041991/4″ Copper Trim #144179  Jute Twine (Sorry, retired) OR , OR
Adhesives:  Fast Fuse or SNAIL
Glue Dots

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Thick Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″.
NOTE:  I just did this all on the card base.  When you use Blends to color, the color will bleed though your cardstock.  SO either color with your card base open OR if you do not want the bleed through to show, cut a Whisper White card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Do everything to the card front, then attach it to the card base.  Instructions are for just the card base with no additional card front.  My son thought the bleed through was an additional feature of the card.
2.  Cut your Wood Textures DSP at 2″ x 6″ with the pattern you want on your card.  Attach to your card base with Fast Fuse.  Trim excess from top and bottom.
3.  Stamp your Tree Stump in Early Espresso ink overlapping your Wood paper.  Lay your card base open and flat on a piece of scratch paper.  Color the Tree stump around the bottom edges and left side and the bottom of the oval at the top with the Crumb Cake Dark Blends Marker.  Color the rest of the Tree Stump with the Crumb Cake Blends Marker blending the darker Crumb Cake.  Now color some grass with the Old Olive Blends Markers.  I then used the Thin tip of the Crumb Cake Dark Blends to color the tree trunk next to the grass.
4.  Stamp Forever at an angle in Real Red ink.  Stamp two of the Heart Confetti also in Real Red ink.
5.  Place 4 Glue Dots along the border of the Wood paper.  Attach your Jute Twine or Linen Thread.  Use SNAIL on the back of the Copper Trim to attach it to the card base.  Trim excess.
Your Card is Finished.
6.  Envelope:  You can stamp the round wood stamp on your envelope.  Use regular Stampin’ Write Markers to color it if desired.
~You could also emboss the flap with the Pine Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Watch this Video to learn how.

January Stamp Class Cards

Here are the cards we made at my Stamp Class last Friday.  I am taking today off hanging out with my son who just returned from almost 8 years in Germany.

January Stamp Class Cards-1

The Tarnished Foil Technique Card is one of the projects I did for my Creative Techniques Corner subscribers.  Click HERE for more details.

The next card used the Love You Still and Banners for You stamp sets.  We did the coloring with the Blends Markers.

January Stamp Class cards 2

We tested out my NEW Stamparatus for both these cards.  You can order yours in June.

The Party Pandas looked best with 2-3 layers of ink which was super easy to do with the Stamparatus.  I also used the Color Theory Designer Series Paper for the Bamboo stalks and the leaves are from the Everyday Jars Framelits.

The Lovely Wishes card also used the Stamparatus.  We placed the two flower and leaf stamps on one side, then stamped, then rotated the card front and stamped again.  We also lined up the Happy Wishes stamps in the Stamparatus and stamped it.  We again colored with Blends Markers.

Contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Card Making!

4.  Although there are two-step stamps for the Arch, flowers and leaves, I chose to color the images with my Blends Markers.  Make sure you have at least 1-2 layers of scratch paper under your cardstock when coloring as there will be bleed-through of the Blends inks.
~Crumb Cake Dark along the left sides of the wood.  Crumb Cake Light to color in the rest and blend out the lines.
~Old Olive Dark and Light for the leaves.
~Daffodil Delight Dark for the center of the large flower.  I had accidently colored the center with the Cherry Cobbler Dark.  I used my Color Lifter to remove the color, then colored the center with Daffodil Delight Dark.  So I am having you do the Daffodil Delight first.
