YAY! A Masculine Birthday Card

I’m having fun with the Playful Alphabet Dies and the new Foam Adhesive Sheets. So, here’s another masculine birthday card, which I always need.

YAY! It’s your DAY!

 

Instructions

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

Layer with Whisper White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″,  embossed with the Absolutely Argyle Embossing Folder.

Use a Stitched Nested Labels Die to cut the hexagon from Misty Moonlight Cardstock.

Use a size smaller hexagon to cut from Whisper White Cardstock, and glue the hexagons together.

 

To make “YAY!” cut 1/8″ strips of each of the new In Colors from the In Color 6X6 Designer Paper.  You can see the four patterns in my Product List.

Cut a 2 1/4″ X 1″ piece of Foam Adhesive Sheets. Remove one paper, revealing the sticky surface, and adhere the strips of DSP, alternating the colors.

Place the Playful Alphabet Dies on the strips, and run through the die cutting machine. Turn it over, run through a second time, to insure a good cut.

 

Remove the paper backing, and stick the letters to your card front. I noticed I poked holes through the DSP. I’ll try being gentler next time.

“It’s your day!” is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set. Stamp it in Misty Moonlight Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with a smaller Stitched Nested Die. Place it on Two Dimensionals with the right side hanging over a bit, and your card is complete.

 

I was inspired by Fab Friday.

INSTRUCTIONS

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

Layer with Whisper White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″,  embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.

Cut a second piece of Whisper White Cardstock, 2 1/4″ X 5 1/2″, emboss with a Greenery Embossing Folder, and adhere to the middle of the card front. (See above photo).

Use the largest Stitched So Sweetly Die to cut a third piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Randomly stamp the flower from Butterly Wishes, and adhere this layer as shown. TIP: Glue in the middle, leaving the right and left edges free, because they are higher.

I used Blushing Bride Ink, but this flower would be pretty in any color.

 

Now for creating “you” with the Playful Alphabet Dies. Cut a 2″ X 1″ piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet, remove one side of the paper, and attach a 2″ X 1″ piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock. Place the y-o-u dies on top of the cardstock, and run it through your die cutting machine. Turn it over, and run through a second time to insure a good cut. Free the letters, remove the other side of paper, and stick to your card front. The removal dots show, but I think it adds character, right?

 

Stamp “Make Me Smile” in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die. Adhere with glue under “make” and a Dimensional under “smile.” 

Add a few Woven Thread Sequins for sparkle.

Wasn’t that fun? Now you can stamp your own background!

 

TGIF was my inspiration.

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.

Featuring: Prized Peony Stamp Set, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Stitched Rectangles Dies, In Color 6X6 DSP; #prizedpeony #peonies #flowers #flowersoncards #clean&simple #easytomake #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #friendshipcards #cardchallenges #cardsketches #cardinstructions #cardsforbeginners

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.
