Celebrate You with Garden Impressions

A handmade card should NOT be stressful to put together!  Today’s card was put together in-between my elliptical work-outs (LOL).  I did a quick 20-minute cardio followed by a 10 minute rest period than another 20 minutes repeated four times.  What! A rest period?  Yes, a rest period!  I had to be very careful about not letting sweat beads drip on the paper (LOL).

Here’s how the card was put together in 10 minutes (or less):

  1. Cut one sheet of Powder Pink cardstock in half.  It doesn’t matter if it’s the 8-1/2″ or 11″ side.  After it’s been cut,  fold & crease one of the halves in half.  It’s best if the paper is scored and if you have a Stampin’ Trimmer, even better!  Press it down with a bone folder.
  2. Take a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it 1/4 inch smaller than the Powder Pink card base so it measures 4″ x 5-1/4″.
  3. Trim down the Garden Impression designer series paper (6″ x 6″) to 1/4″ inch smaller than the Whisper White cardstock (3-3/4″ x 5″).
  4. Use a scrap of Basic Black & scrap of Basic White to cut out the words from the thinlits. Use Multipurpose Liquid glue to adhere it and use a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on “YOU” to give it a slight pop.  Dress up the word with three of the tiny Rhinestones.
*I love Multipurpose Liquid Glue because it allows you to position the paper perfectly before it dries.  Especially if you use the eye-ball method to put the card layers together (LOL).

Stamp Ink Paper: Water Color

I impressed myself with my water-coloring abilities.  I mean, I almost feel wow’d because when it comes to water-color, I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing.  I searched for “How to water-color for beginners” on YouTube and that’s it!

You can show us your water-coloring skills over at the Stamp Ink Paper challenge.  Craft level doesn’t matter.  I’m proof you don’t have to have any experience with water-coloring whatsoever.

The Details:

  • How to Get Started.  Believe me, I had no idea where to even start!  So, I went to YouTube and typed Watercoloring for Beginners and it returned me the list…start there and you’ll soon see that it’s easier than you think.  It’s literally how this card happened. he cardstock.
  • Watercolored Butterfly.  I learned about using an acrylic block from a fellow Pal and it was easy too.  First, I stamped the rubber with two different colors and then used our spritzer to spray water straight on the rubber.  It’ll come out different each time giving it a unique look.  Try it.
  • Black Die-Cut.  With the darker butterfly and light background, the black matte and die-cut made the “sunshine” stand out and didn’t overwhelm the entire card, at least that what I thought (HAHA).  It really does look so much more beautiful in person.

Stamp Ink Paper: Back To School

This last week there were so many photos on social media of kids returning to school and many were sporting cute little signs.  I wonder of all those photos how many parents left little notes for their kids in the lunch boxes?  I’m willing to bet there are many, but one lucky third grader got this handmade card in their lunch bag.

The Details:

  • Garden Green Cardstock Chalkboard.  Garden Green perfectly resembles a chalkboard and to give it the real chalkboard appearance complete with chalk dust made with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder!  The picture does it no justice!
  • Versamark Pad.  To give the appearance of chalk dust, I took the entire pad of Versamark and lightly dabbed it on the cardstock and sprinkled some of the White Stampin’ Emobss Power.
  • Grade.  The coolest option for this card is that you can make it any grade you’d like.  The Numbers of Years stamp set comes with every number from 0 to 9.

Use Host Code above and receive a gift from me when you place an on-line order via my on-line store.  Do not use if your order is more than $150. You will receive additional Host Reward and you’ll automatically receive a gift from me.
