Hi folks! Back here again to share a few birthday cards I made with Graphic 45’s Couture collection, PTI’s Shakers + Sprinkles Kit and DCWV’s Gilded Paper Stack.
This first card, I used a mountain and valley stand-up base in black of course… I then began paper piecing panels of coordinating colors onto the card so it was completely covered and stable. Next I chose what focal points I wanted on the front. The G45 Couture collection has card shaped squares in the 12×12 stack that I chose the front piece from. This square piece is layered and popped up and I angled it after I had adorned the art deco piece with twine and taped it to the back to adhere it. Additionally, I attached a glue dot to the back so it wouldn’t slide around. Next I chose coordinating pieces as focal points for the zig-zag smaller panels to the right then adhered them.
For this next card, I used PTI’s Shakers + Sprinkles Kit with a bright white card base and all the elements included with the kit including the confetti elements, dies in the shape of hearts and the colorful and cheerful background paper. Everything coordinated so nicely with the color palette! First, I laid down the patterned paper with sequin background, then the sunbeam pattern on top in bright fuchsia. I then layered heart silhouette die-cuts in a tired fashion on the front of the card and the last heart that is solid, I popped up on a heart shaped foam cut-out for added dimension. I topped it off with a banner stamped with a Happy Birthday sentiment in archival ink by Ranger and added a toothpick and topped it with teal twine. I’m really happy with the result and so was sweet Alice, the birthday girl. Inside, I placed two of the heart die cuts, one as a pocket and the other as a coupon for a neck & shoulder massage. I know, I know, I’m outdoing some of you here but settle down… 😉
This final card was so full of pizzazz and attitude, I loved making it because of the flair. The black and gold added to the class factor too I think. The sentiment is from PTI and couldn’t have suited the recipient better if I had handwritten it! I started with a black base, cut the paper to size from DCWV’s Gilded Paper Stack. I bought it at Michaels but it’s on sale now at Joanne Fabrics. A snazzy Birthday Card for a snazzy lady.
Hi all! I’ve been working so been away from the blog for a while.
But I’m back here to share one of my latest creations using the following supplies:
Papertrey Inc. – Spring Hills Stamp Set
Memory Box Die: Breezy Wreath
Tim Holtz Distress Markers: Colored different pieces of stamp landscape in different colors
Bakers twine: Marigold
Paper Collection: Secret Garden, G45
Viva Pearl Pen: Pearls around the wreath
Spellbinders Die: Nestabilities Labels 10, Fancy Tags 2
Waltzingmouse Stamps: Sweethearts (With Love)
The sentiment “Find Beauty in Each Day” was done on a square punch from Michaels and I just tucked it under the layers on the card so you only see the bottom half. I also snuck in some vellum paper that has flakes of iridescent circles. In the light, it shines as well as the little sheep and their fleece that I added white glitter to! 🙂 ♥
Hi everyone, it’s been a busy season, but I’m back here to share a little something I made for my son after getting tired of seeing his dresser riddled with tickets, etc…
I looked up “envelope album” on YouTube and found a bunch of great tutorials and after watching a few decided to go for it! If you like this idea, go do the same, it’s easy!
So, because this was movie, performance, theater related (mostly) with his tickets, etc… I decided to go with Graphic 45s Curtain Call Paper Stack I’ve had for a while.
The vintage vellum envelopes are from ebay, the closure is magnetic using Neodymium small magnets you can also find on ebay, Amazon and Etsy. I used white envelopes and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. In hindsight, I wish I would have used black envelopes but it came out great and I immediately got three orders for more!
So, my nephew’s birthday just passed and I made this card for him since he can appreciate strange and curios things. I used Graphic 45’s “Old Curiosity Shoppe” paper collection and sticker sheets to create with. The key tied with twine is a Tim Holtz piece and I used Vintage Photo on all the edges. The Stamp is “Mice Party” by Clear Art Stamps and the die is a Spellbinders Nestability one I like to use with more simple and masculine themes.
A special card here… using G45’s “Secret Garden”, a resin flower from TCP Studios, a few stick pins and a button from a “lot” from ebay and of course gorgeous seam binding from Paper Loves Glue on Etsy.
