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.

Stamp Ink Paper: Love

14232041_10153815158103531_6990823276322308668_o

I’m in Love with anything creative and handmade and so is the rest of  the Stamp Ink Paper Design Team.  Today we made our cards to reflect anything about Love and my card is a birthday card to my great-uncle who will turn 69 in a couple of weeks.  Join us this week and show off some LOVE at the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge blog.

Stamp Ink Paper

Sometimes I have no idea what my cards will come out when I’m not using a sketch.  So, I go at it blindly and so far, I’m always pleased with the outcome.  I’m a little jealous of card-makers who can whip out a card in an hour or less.  I totally admire their talent.  This one took me 2 days…oh my.  But, it’s the love I have for card-making that doesn’t matter how long or how little it may take.  Anything made with LOVE is totally worth it.

Stamp Ink Paper

The Details:

  • Sunken Heart Cutout.  After adhering the Playfull Pallette DSP to Basic Black Cardstock, I used a heart from the Sweet & Sassy collection to cut out the heart.  I then doubled up the Stampin’ Dimensionals to add height to the cutout.  The heart with the 69 was adhered to the base first before the frame before the Stampin’ Dimensionals were applied (hope that made sense).  Doing so allowed me to center it perfectly on the base.
  • Tricky Hello Thinlits. There are endless types of glue one can use to apply very thin embellishments, but know that you don’t need to purchase tons of different types of glue.  Stampin’ Up! has the most strongest Fine-Tip glue pen that works extremely well.  No need to run it through another type that requires another gadget. I love it!!!

Brought to You By the No. 16

Number of Years

Today’s card is brought to you by the No. 16 for the Stamps Ink Paper sketch challenge.

Stampin’ Up! has released several numbered sets thoughout the years and they’re all fabulous, but I must say this set is my favorite. Why?  Because it stamps a texture that gives the image a distressed look.

Number of Years

Highlights:

  • The photopolymer set is called Number of Years and I also used the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack  with Night of Navy cardstock.  I used Night of Navy because it pulls out the color from the star shapes in the DSP.  But you can bring out any of the other colors too.  Just depends on what colors you choose.
  • On the two previous two posted cards I used a few of the 2013-2015 In Color Sequin Assortment and I’m actually amazed they are still available in the clearance rack.  
  • The other fold of this post is to let you know that you have a chance to get to know the other side of my twisted personality.  Retirement has given me so many avenues, I think I actually work more hours a week than I used to when I drove to a job.  But you know what? I love it!  If you don’t care or don’t want to know the naughty side of me, please don’t visit me here. It’s not for those with pure minds & hearts (LOL).
