Sending Faraway Hugs | Vellum Framed Shaker

Hey everyone! I hope your day is going well today. I have a shaker card to share with you today using some products from Simon Says Stamp.

I took out the Rose Lattice Background stamp and stamped it with Versamark ink on Bristol Smooth paper and embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder. I then blended over that with Distress Oxide inks in the colors Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral, Festive Berries, and Aged Mahogany. I cut the background down to 4.25 x 4.25.

Next I picked out the circular frame from the Leafy Frames stamp set from Simon and I stamped it on vellum with Versamark. I embossed that with the Alabaster embossing powder and fussy cut around the outside of the frame. I found a circle die to fit the middle of the frame and cut that out.

I cut a ring out of Plum Hero Arts cardstock and glued it to my leafy circle frame. I then added acetate to the back and went around the circle with doubled up foam tape to make my shaker window. I filled shaker with large clear glitter and adhered it to the ink blended background.

For the first half of the sentiment I stamped the ‘sending’ on vellum and embossed it in white. For the second half I picked a smaller sentiment and stamped it with Dusty Rose on white cardstock. I popped up both sentiments with foam tape. To finish up that card I went over the smaller sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter and added some Moonshine sequins.

A Sassy Birthday Card | Embossing with a Stencil

Hey guys! Today I am sharing a sassy birthday card using the Big Birthday Greetings stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I love this card, I think it is hilarious!

2.jpg

First I stamped a whole bunch of candles from the set onto Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock with Versamark ink. I embossed them with Alabaster white embossing powder and then cut them all out with my Scan N Cut 2. For some extra detail I shaded the flames on the candles with a white Prismacolor pencil.

For the background I taped the Abstract Triangles stencil from Simon Says Stamp over a piece of Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock. I smooshed my Versamark ink pad over the stencil and then embossed the design with clear embossing powder. I cut the background down to 5 x 5 and blended some Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink along the edges.

I popped up the background onto a 5.5 x 5.5 card base with foam tape. I then glued down a layer of the candles along the bottom of the card with Gina K Designs Connect Glue. I popped up a second layer of candles over the first with foam tape. Using some scissors I cut the bottoms of the candles to be flush to the bottom of the stenciled background.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink onto Bazzil Licorice Twist cardstock and embossed it in white. I then fussy cut the sentiment out and glued it to some vellum. I cut that out so that the sentiment would have a vellum border and then popped it up on the card. To finish up I went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter.

Fish Bowl Shaker Card | Pink and Main

Hello my friends! I am sharing a card today using some products from Pink and Main’s upcoming release! This release comes out on the 20th and I am sharing a look at the Fintastic stamp and die set.

I stamped the fish from the set with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink and colored him in with Copic markers. I then cut him out with the coordinating die. I embossed a sentiment from the set on Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock with white embossing powder and cut it down to a strip.

7.jpg

I cut the fish bowl from the Fintastic die set out of Sea Glass cardstock. I cut the inner section of the bowl out of a panel of Neenah cardstock and glued a piece of acetate to the back. I then took the Sea Glass bowl and glued it to the front of the panel.

To create the background for the shaker I took Peacock cardstock from Simon Says Stamp and embossed a Wavy stencil design in clear embossing on it. I then added foam tape around the shaker wingow, filled it with sequins, and closed it up with the background.

8.jpg

To finish up the card I glued the fish to the front and popped up the sentiment. I also added a few raindrop embellishments and glued the shaker panel to a card base.

Teacher Thank You Spinner Card | Lawn Fawn

Hey y’all! Today I am sharing a thank you card for a teacher and this card is special because it is a spinner card!! The stamp set I used for this card is the Thanks a Bushel set from Lawn Fawn.

1.jpg

I started this card by stamping a bunch of the apples and the basket of apples on Neenah cardstock with Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink. I then stamped faces from the set on each of the apples. I colored in the images with Copic markers and then cut them out with my Scan N Cut.

I die cut a circle out of Lucky Clover cardstock from Gina K and a ring out of Green Apple cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I then stamped the Plank background from Simon onto a 4.5 x 4.5 piece of Dark Chocolate cardstock from Gina K. I adhered that background to a 5 x 5 card base made from Kraft cardstock.

2.jpg

Using foam tape around the inside of the Green Apple ring of cardstock I started making my spinner on the card. I closed it up with the Lucky Clover circle. I then glued the apples all around the spinner and the basket of apples to the center.

5.jpg

For my sentiment I stamped the Thanks a Bushel stamp on Neenah cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and cut it to a strip. I popped that sentiment up with foam tape on the card. I then added a second sentiment to the inside of the card which says “for being a great teacher.”

For the finishing touches on the card I added highlights to the apples with a white gel pen.

Hexagon Element Honeycomb | Simon's New Rest & Refresh Release

Hey guys! Today I have a card featuring the new Hexagon Element die from Simon’s Rest and Refresh release.

1.jpg

First I taped a piece of Canson Watercolor paper to a board. I painted a really organic background using some Prima watercolors. I trimmed the background to 4x5.25 and popped it up on an A2 card base.

3.jpg

I die cut the Hexagon Element shape three times out of Neenah cardstock and adhered them together to make a dimensional piece. I then glued that piece to my card. To give the look of a honeycomb I filled each of the hexagons with Glossy Accents.

2.jpg

For the sentiment I first die cut the word “honey” using the Archie Jr alphabet die set from Simon Says Stamp out of slate cardstock. For the second part of the sentiment I used the Tiny Words die set and stamp the sentiment with Gina K’s Jet Black Amalgam ink on Neenah cardstock. I glued the letters with Gina K Connect Glue and the smaller sentiment with foam tape.

4.jpg

Next I went over the letters with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents. I also went over the sentiment strip with Wink of Stella.

5.jpg

To finish up the card I added some sequins from the Heaven Sent sequin mix from Lucy’s Cards.
