Artistically Inked Birthday Paper Hug Card

I fell in love with TGIF’s inspirational photo, so I had to CASE (copy and selectively edit) it. 

 

I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, which I embossed with the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder. 

Next, I cut a square of Basic White Cardstock, 3″ X 3″, and stamped the sentiment in Stazon Black Ink. “Happy Birthday” is from the Artistically Ink Stamp Set, and “sending you this paper hug” is from Through It Together. Then, I cut a square of Basic Black Cardstock 1/8″ larger, giving it a 1/16″ border.

Birthday Hugs

 

The corner, focal point, was stamped with the Artistically Inked stamps and cut with coordinating Artistic Dies. I stamped the larger flower in Polished Pink, the smaller flower in Daffodil Delight, and the leaves in Gray Granite. The purple was cut with a Dainty Delight Die from Highland Heather Cardstock. 

 

After gluing, and attaching the flowers, I added three Iridescent Pearls, and my CASE was complete.

Watercolor Splash, Hearts, and Love

The floral patterns in the Dainty Flowers Designer Paper are beautiful, but don’t overlook this watercolor, splash pattern, on the back. I cut the first piece with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die, and glued it to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I used the sixth largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut a second piece for the top layer.

Watercolored Hearts

 

Next, I used the fourth largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut Basic White Cardstock, which I embossed with the new, Cane Weave Embossing Folder. Isn’t the texture fabulous? After attaching the embossed piece to the card front with Dimensionals, I attached the top piece of Dainty Flowers Designer Paper, also on Dimensionals.

 

Adding hearts to my design was easy, using the Country Bouquet Punch. I punched three small hearts, and one large heart, from Dainty Flowers Designer Paper. Before attaching them with Dimensionals, I layered them with Thick Basic White Cardstock for thickness.

 

The last step was adding “love,” which was cut with a Love For You Die, from the same Dainty Flowers Designer Paper.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

Love For You in Three Colors

Today’s card developed with three colors in mind, and a variety of products, including dies from three new sets, and a new punch.

Sometimes it’s fun to look through a hole in a wall, isn’t it? I created this hole in Basic White Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/5″) by cutting it with the largest Layering Circles Die. After cutting, I embossed the area surrounding the hole with the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.

Through a Brick Wall

 

The sky, seen through the wall, was smoothed onto Basic White Cardstock, also 4″ X 5 1/4″, with Balmy Blue Ink and a Blending Brush.

 

I attached the two together with the edges of Dimensionals, which I photographed for you to see. It may have been overkill, but I wanted my brick wall to have a firm foundation. LOL! My sky and brick wall layers were then glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The vine growing around the hole was cut from Thick Basic White Cardstock, using a new, Dainty Delight Die. It’s a very special vine that grows hearts this time of year.

The larger heart was punched from In Color 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in Polished Pink, using the new, Country Bouquet Punch. The five tiny hearts were cut from the same designer paper, using a new, Around the Bend Die. To give the hearts dimension, I used a Foam Adhesive Sheet for the tiny hearts, and a Mini Dimensional for the larger one.

 

Finally, “Love you” was written in the sky with Early Espresso Cardstock, cut with new, Love For You Dies. You can see all of the new, and current, supplies in my Product List below.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

Sneak Peek of Country Floral Lane

First of all, Merry Christmas! I’m sticking with traditional, red and green for Christmas, however, this is a Valentine’s Day card. I’m already gearing up for Valentine’s Day, and Stampin’ Up! has a wonderful, new, suite for making valentines; Country Floral Lane. It will be available January 5, 2023.

Floating Hearts

 

I began today’s card with a current product, an Eden Die, which I used to cut Thick Basic White Cardstock. After cutting, I glued the garland to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

Next, came the fun of using the Country Bouquet Punch to cut hearts and leaves from the Country Floral Lane Designer Paper. The picture shows how it is easily punched along a row. There are stamps in the Country Bouquet Stamp Set that also coordinate with the punch, so it will get much use.

 

After punching, I attached the hearts and leaves with Dimensionals. Don’t they look like they’re floating? I love this swooped heart!

“With love” is from the Country Bouquet Stamp Set, stamped in Mossy Meadow Ink.

 

I was inspired by TGIF, and HAD to use this new punch!

Coloring Fun with Perfectly Penciled Designer Paper

I was in the mood to do some coloring and fussy cutting, and Perfectly Penciled Designer Paper was a “perfect” choice. The black and white flowers were calling for some color, so I used Stampin’ Blends in three colors: Bermuda Bay, Fresh Freesia, and Polished Pink.

fussy cut and colored

 

After coloring, I used my Paper Snips to “perfect” my patience with the detailed design. It’s actually fun, once you get the hang of moving the paper, and not the scissors.

 

To add to the card’s design, I used a Stitched Rectangles Die (1 1/4″ X 3 1/4″) to cut three rectangles, which were embossed with the Hive Embossing Folder. I eyeballed the spacing, and glued the three rectangles to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I glued my cut flowers on top of the embossed rectangles.

 

The sentiment, “a note of thanks,” is from the Sending Smiles Stamp Set. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink, used a Sending Die for cutting, and attached it with Mini Dimensionals.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.
