Meadow in Blue

 

I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, topped with Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die.

Next, I used the fourth largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut a blue piece of Beauty Of The Earth Designer Paper. Then, I stamped the wonderful, wild flower stamp in Night Of Navy Ink on the blue paper. Can you see the clouds? I layered this with Thick Basic White Cardstock, so it would be sturdy atop Foam Adhesive Strips, which I used to raise it.

 

Prior to attaching the raised panel, I stamped a large, single flower in Night Of Navy Ink in the corner of the Largest Stitched Rectangle.

 

All I needed was a small sentiment, which I found in the Sweet As A Peach Stamp Set. I stamped “To a sweet friend!” in Night Of Navy Ink, and used a Peach Die for cutting. 

Four Artistry Blooms Self-Adhesive Sequins were the final touch, and super easy to apply. The sequins happen to be my “host code” gift this month, and you can read below how to receive them. 

 

Here is my inspiration from Freshly Made Sketches.

Seahorse on a Square Card

Okay, more Rainbow Glimmer Paper is on my next order! Isn’t the seahorse pretty in sparkling shades of blue and green? 

I began today’s card with a square design in mind, so cut the card base from Bermuda Bay Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 4 1/4″, folded at 4 1/4″.  Then, I used a Sea Life Die to cut the seahorse from Rainbow Glimmer Paper. This paper worked so well with the fish a few days ago, I HAD to use it with the seahorse.

I just glued his head, belly, and tail (the largest sections), and left the rest of his sturdy self free.

Rainbow Seahorse

 

His background is Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 4″, embossed with the Seashells Embossing Folder. I think he’s happy with his setting.

 

Since the seahorse is really cool, I stamped, “you’re so cool,” in Bermuda Bay Ink on Basic White Cardstock. This sentiment is in the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set. 

It was fun using the Double Oval Punch for cutting, giving it the scalloped border of Rainbow Glimmer Paper, and attaching it with a double layer of Dimensionals. 

 

The Opal Rounds completed my underwater scene. These pretty dots of sparkle are retiring June 30, so order them while they’re available. Clicking on them in my Product List will take you to my store for purchasing.

 

I was inspired by the square card design at Fab Friday.

And, the summer theme at the Paper Players.

Negative Space Fancy Fold Card

When making die-cuts, you end up with “negative space” that often gets tossed in the trash. But, today’s card is a result of using that “trash” from yesterday’s cards. Yes, cards, plural, because I made two cards from one die-cut (twofer), and now this is the third (threefer). The fun never ends!

“Negative Space” Fancy Fold

 

The swooping leaves were cut from Thick Basic White Cardstock (3″ X 5 1/4″), using a die from the Artistic Set. You can see the complete set in my Product List below.

Stenciling “twofer”

 

Because the leaves fit perfectly on one side of the card front, I decided to chop off 1 1/8″ on the right side, turning it into a fancy fold. After gluing the “cut out” leaves to the card front, I embossed it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

Next, I stamped “Happy Birthday in Misty Moonlight Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used an Ornate Layers Die for cutting. This vertical sentiment is from the Celebrate With Flowers Stamp Set, and the reason I purchased it, but I’m loving the other images. You should check it out in my Product List.

 

 Beauty Of The Earth Designer Paper was used on the inside, 4″ X 5 1/4″, and Basic White Cardstock, 3″ X 5 1/4″. Then, I backed “Happy Birthday” with the leafy pattern by using the same die for cutting. The sentiment pieces were glued together, and glued to the back of the card front, along the edge. 

 

To bring out the blue, and have a bit more detail, I added a butterfly. It was cut with a Brilliant Wings Die from Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper.

Very easy fancy fold, huh?
