Stamp Ink Paper: A Sketch

Today’s card is special not because it’s a sketch for the Stamp Ink Paper card challenge, but because it was a special order for an old friend I was once deployed with.  He saw a set of custom coffee mugs I made for my brother and his bride for their one year anniversary and asked if I could make a set of mugs for his brother and sister-in-law.

 These are the coffee mugs my friend ordered.

These are the one’s I made for my brother’s one year anniversary.  

Wow! I was very happy when I found out this week’s challenge was a sketch.  I really miss sketches a whole lot.  What kind of challenges do you prefer?  Sketch or Images as inspiration?  Join us this week at the Stamp Ink Paper challenge.

The Details:

  • Cut, Stamp, Punch:  It’s one of the quick methods to quickly make a card.
  • Less is more.  Seriously, I don’t know where to begin to describe how easy it is to make your own handmade card.
  • Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I used a retired piece of DSP as the background, but you can use our new designs or some of your own.
  • Heart Punch!  If you didn’t get the heart punch when it retired, don’t worry, you can use one of the smaller hearts from the Sweet & Sassy framelits dies.  If you want to add an embellishment put a rhinestone on the upper right side of the heart.

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 Challenge: In Style

Welcome to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge Tuesday style! This post is coming to you from the road.  Yes, being retired has it’s perks and I’ve been out of the country for the last four days.  What in the world would we do without WiFi?

Sometimes, it’s not difficult to create a card for a sketch challenge, but it sure is difficult to choose which set you’re going to use.  Close your eyes and just pick one! That’s exactly what I did and I couldn’t be happier because it’s already one of my favorites.

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge

The Details:

  • Stamp it.  Seriously!, that’s how easy it was to come up with this technique (LOL). It’s what I love about layouts.
  • Where to place the sequin!? I think this was the most difficult decision I had to make for this card.  Wherever you decide to place your sequin, just remember don’t adhere them down to the carsick until you know for sure where they  belong.  Embellishments should add a balance to the card.  But in reality, does it matter? LOL, probably not, just don’t place them on the very edge of the card.  You’ll feel off kilter.
