Game On Birthday Card #simplestamping

Today’s birthday card is from the new, Game On Stamp Set. This idea has been “rolling” around in my head, since first seeing the set in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

Without a bit of layering it is #simplestamping, meaning just stamps ink and paper, which is quick and easy, and great for beginners.

Roll with it

 

Instructions

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

You can simply stamp on the card base or…

Use an Ornate Layers Die to cut a layer from regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock. You could also use a 2 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock without the detailed, die-cut edge.

Choose five colors of ink to stamp the rainbow of die (not to be confused with cutting dies).

I used Highland Heather, Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, and Pumpkin Pie, which are in my Product List below. Stamp the first time in full strength, and a second time without re-inking. This is called “stamping off.”

 

Stamp the sentiment, “It’s your day. Roll with it” in Memento Black Ink. I used my Stamparatus to insure it stamped properly, but not necessary.

TIP: You can stamp on a piece of scrap paper before stamping on your project to ward off errors. Also, before stamping, look at the inked stamp to make sure there is full coverage, without ink on the edge where it’s unwanted.

 

Cut a piece of regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. 

Glue the stamped strip at an angle, and trim the four corners.

Glue this layer to the card base, and you’re done.

 

My layout was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch.

Prized Peony Quick & Easy Card

The images in the Prized Peony Stamp Set are beautiful, and I really like the way the flower looks in black & white. This is a great card for beginning stampers, with my “easy-to-make” instructions below.

Simple Peony

 

Step by Step Instructions:

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, and fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

TIP: Use the Stampin’ Trimmer scoring tool for a nice, neat fold.

Use the largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut the first layer from Basic Black Cardstock.

Use the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut the top layer from In Color 6X6 DSP (Magenta Madness).

 

Use the largest Stitched So Sweetly Die to cut the label from Thick Whisper White Cardstock.

Stamp the flower from the Prized Peony Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink at the top of the label.

 

 

Stamp “my friend” from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink, as shown.

TIP: Curve it slightly on the Acrylic Block to fit the curve of the label. This is one of the advantages of photopolymer stamps, they bend.

Place the label on Dimensionals, and you’re done! Now you can send the card to someone to brighten their day.

 

My inspiration was from CAS(E) this sketch.

Back On Your Feet “Get Well” Card

What do you do when your husband needs some “get well” cheer? You find the cutest stamp set, Back On Your Feet, and make him a card! He’s going in for shoulder replacement surgery this week, so I’ll be making several cards, especially for him.

The first thing I did was stamp the giraffe in Memento Black Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Then, he was fussy cut (cut by hand), colored with Stampin’ Blends in Light Mango Melody and Light Soft Suede, and placed on Dimensionals.

By Su Mohr for cts; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Back On Your Feet Stamp Set, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Ornate Frames Dies, Stampin' Blends, Hammered Metal embossing; #backonyourfeet #animalsoncards #giraffes #giraffesoncards #humorouscards #getwellcards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting

“This is knot good”

 

For his background, I began with a Crumb Cake card base, topped with a layer of Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder. Hammered Metal? Hah! In this case it’s animal skin! Prior to embossing I used the largest Stitched Rectangles Die to the cut the white cardstock. A second Stitched Rectangles Die was used to make the smaller rectangle, which I backed with Crumb Cake Cardstock, giving it a 1/16″ border.

TIP: I used left-over edges of Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise the smaller rectangle.

 

The giraffe’s grass was made with 3″ strips of Granny Apple Green Cardstock and a Special Days Die. This is a great die for grass, and you can make it as wide as you want.

 

I used three, narrow, strips to follow this week’s CAS(E) this sketch.

 

The sentiment is from Back On Your Feet, and fits the giraffe perfectly, doesn’t it? The sentiments make this set especially cute! You can see the entire set in my Product List, and I’ll be making more cards with it in the near future. 

I stamped “This is knot good” in Soft Suede Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die. It was just the right size to fit along his neck.

Beach Scene

 

It looks simple to make, and it was! The card base is Balmy Blue Cardstock with a layer of Granny Apple Green Cardstock, and a top layer of Whisper White Cardstock. I cut the white layer with a Friendly Silhouettes Die, allowing the green to show through the trees.

 

Before embossing the white layer with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink. This color looks like sand, where you can hunt for seashells during your relaxing day at the beach. The seashells are Woven Threads Sequins. Aren’t they pretty?

Today’s card was inspired by two challenges: Fusion

Ornate Daisies

 

It’s so much fun to use the Ornate Layers Dies! I used the larger die to frame a layer of Whisper White Cardstock on the Thick Whisper White card base. Then, the smaller, fancier die was used to cut a piece of Ornate Garden Designer Paper.

 

Next, I used the Medium Daisy Punch to cut two rounds of petals from Whisper White Cardstock, which I embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder. The daisy is resting on a strip of In Color 6X6 DSP in the new color, Bumble Bee. Don’t you love it?

The strip was cut with a third Ornate Layers Die, and the daisy’s center was cut with the retiring, 1/2″ Circle Punch, from the dotted paper. You may still find the 1/2″ Circle Punch in the Last-Chance Products.

 

“My friend” is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink, and cut with the Classic Label Punch.
