Stamp Ink Paper: Girls Night Out

Why have you not heard from me in a month plus?  I took a month off to be with family.  My dad turned 90 years old and we had to celebrate in Gatsby style.  Then a week later a nephew married his high school sweetheart and it ended with a trip to Mexico.  But I’m back and I’m happy to announce that I have added a laser cutter to my craft room.  Yes, a laser! I’m not leaving my first love….stamping. But the laser will be incorporated into my handmade cards. I truly can’t wait to show you what I come up with.  But first, let me tell you about my wine bottle.

What Are the Details:

  • From the Half Full Stamp Set.  I used the our improved Stampin’ Blends to color in the bottle using the darker color for the lip label and the lighter one for the bottle.  I didn’t do any fancy coloring because quite frankly, I’m no coloring expert, but I don’t need to be!
  • Click  on markers on the left to view the Blends.
  • Quilt Top Textured Impression Embossing Folder.  I embossed the Basic White cardstock and used the flat side of the raised impression becuase I forgot to stamp the sentiment before running it through the Big Shot.  I didn’t correct it because my goal is to show you that you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to make pretty handmade cards.  It’s easy and that’s the point.  Stop being intimidated!
  • Colored Sequin.  I’m not going to comment on these because they are not Stampin’ Up! (LOL).  However, you can take a look at all of our Embellishments here.
  • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: Did you know this cardstock is available in 12″ x 12″?  I used Cherry Cobbler because I think a darker wine (not my favorite) looked better than a white or blush wouldn’t you agree? (LOL)  I initially was going to make it a white on white card, but I wanted to line it to match as a frame.  I could be wrong (but I don’t care, it’s my card…lol), I think it forces the wind bottle to become the focal point.  Do you think it really matters though?  I mean, what the heck is a focal point anyway?  HAHA

Stamp Ink Paper: Graduation

I read a post the other day on a crafting Facebook page and it said that a lady asked if she could leave her crafting supplies at a demonstrator’s home.  The demonstrator thought it was a strange request, so she asked the lady, please tell my why you want to do that.  This was the lady’s response summarized because I can’t remember word-for-word, “I bought all the supplies for make cards I like, but it seems too many others make cards that are too much work and I just can’t make them.  Well, my friends, I took to heart what the lady said.  Why?  Because, like the lady, I don’t like making complicated cards either.  Hence, why my cards are so often simple and so easy to reproduce by anyone!  It’s all about cut, stamp, adhere and done! 

If you don’t have a graduate to make and give this card to there are many more sentiments that can be used instead.  Maybe like Happy Birthday and instead of 2017, put the year of their birth…now that will go over well to anyone who is age conscious. LOL

Although this card was designed for the Stamp Ink Paper challenge, I was on a mini-vacay to Reno, Nevada and I completely got my dates all twisted by thinking Sunday was Saturday and Monday was Sunday, I missed the dead-line and missed out on posting my card.  However, I’m entering this card into the players pool knowing I can not win, but can show off my card.  So, play along side me this week at the Stamp Ink Paper Card Challenge

The Details:

  • Die-cut with Big Shot.  Our Large Letter Framelits will never go out of style for any occasion that revolves around numbers and you don’t even need electricity.  Run them through your Big Shot and boom! You’re all done!
  • Congratulations!  The sentiment used is from the Floral Phrases stamp set and I aligned it with my handy dandy Stamp-a-Ma-Jig thingy (LOL).  It’s perfect for making things straight!
  • Easy Stick Numbers:  Due to the thickness of the Gold Glimmer paper, I used the Multipurpose Adhesive sheets for the number to make ensure they adhered to the black cardstock.  It works like a charm.

Fellow consultant Brittany’s TRUE STORY made me giggle.
She washed her face (with R+F products of course) before dinner,
at the table her husband asked,  “Do you have makeup on right now?”
She said, “No, why?”  That’s when he said, “Wow, the products really do work!”
She said he hardly noticed when she got a short haircut and died it brown. 😂😂

Stamp Ink Paper: Card Maker’s Choice #80

Today’s card is for the first Stamp Ink Paper Challenge of 2017!  When I first got the card making bug I sent birthday cards to family and friends.  Then as my life got busy between deployments and military retirement, my side business in graphic design took off like wildfire.  A week or so ago, I posted on my personal FB page that #ImBringingBirthdaysBack in 2017 (hence the watermark).  I received many responses from friends (family is already included) and I got started last month.  This card went to a childhood friend, Jose.  He lived two houses down from me and our families are friends to this day.

Join us this week and show us what your style of cardmaking.

The Details:

  • Stamped Circle.  To get a perfectly round stamped image in the center punch a scrap sheet of paper no bigger than the card base (4.25″ x 5.5″). Place it in the center where you want the image placed and use a large enough stamp that will cover the opening. It doesn’t have to be round you can choose any shape you desire.
  • Boots.  Were colored with Copic markers and two sets of Stampin’ Dimensionals were used to give an added dimension to the boot and background.
  • Just for kicks. Silver metallic thread was added to the back of the boots to just for fun.
