New Job? Yay

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card I made for a friend who landed a new job recently. I wasn’t sure how I was going to make this card since I really didn’t have any job related stamps. As I was looking through my stamps, the To Thine Own Shelf stamp from Simon Says Stamp really stood out with some images I could use. So I started with that and the idea just went in different directions from there. I also used other stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn.

Here is my card —

New Job Yay

I started this card with a standard card base with the fold on top from some Simon Says Stamp 120 lb white card stock. I stamped the images related to a workplace from the To Thine Own Shelf set and and I also stamped some sentiments from there and from other SSS sets. For the word “new job”, I didn’t have any so I used Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABC which is my favorite alphabet stamp ever. I stamped all images ans sentiments with a variety of ink colors.

I wanted the card to be one layer but I later decided to put a strip of patterned paper from Simple Stories on the side.

That’s it for this card.

This card is an entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. The theme for this week is Anything Goes.

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for a friend of mine who loves ice cream. She is celebrating her birthday soon and I thought it was a great idea to give her an ice cream card.

Here is my card —

I Scream You ScreaM

 

I started this card with a standard size card with the fold on top from Neenah Solar White card stock. I selected a rainbow paper from Bo Bunny’s Lemonade Stand 6×6 paper pack and adhered it flush on to the base covering the entire front panel.

I used the left over rainbow paper and stamped scoops of ice cream from the Ice Dream stamp set on the different colors of the paper and fussy cut each one. I also stamped the cone and colored it in with Copic Markers. I arranged the scoops in rainbow order and stuck them to each other to look like they were stacked. I attached the entire ice cream cone on a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock cut with a flag banner. For the sentiment, I stamped the “I Scream” message from the same Ice Dream set in Memento Luxe Love Letter ink. For a glossy finish, I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder (my current favorite technique).

To finish the card,  I attached the flag banner on the card base. I also added some DIY enamel dots I made from perler beads.

That’s it for this card. For a list of all the products and tools I used, please refer to the supply list below.

Friendship Has Its Perks

I started this card with a standard size card cut from Neenah Classic Cream card stock with the fold on top.

I stamped it in a variety of inks from Simon Says Stamp which will be listed below in my supply list.

Hi everyone! I’m here with a card using supplies from the Simon Says Stamp September 2014 card kit. This kit has a book/reading theme. You can create shelves or a stack of books or really anything outside the box if you just imagine the possibilities.

Today I wanted to create a more safe card aligning with the theme of books.

Here is my card —

You're Perfect In My Book

 

I started this card with some Neenah Classic Creme card stock from the kit cut to a standard size landscape card. For the patterned paper piece ton top, I used papers from October Afternoon included in the kit and cut it with the Sizzix Fancy Labels #3. I also used the same Sizzix label die set but a smaller one to cut from the same Neenah cream paper to be nested on top of the patterned paper.

On the smaller label piece, I stamped the ledge/shelf with Cup O’Joe ink from Hero Arts. For the books, apple and plant, I stamped them in Cup O’Joe. Pale Tomato and Green Hills ink to match the patterned paper. For the sentiment, I used one from the set and stamped it with Pale Tomato ink from Hero Arts.

To finish the card, I used the woods dots from Teresa Collins and some pink enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye. Then I adhered the panel with some foam tape for added dimension.

That’s it for this card.

Here is my card —

Hang In There

I started this card with 4 3/4 by 4 1/4 card from Neenah Solar White card stock. I adhered a piece of patterned paper from Pink Paislee over the entire front of the card. The front panel, I cut a piece measuring  1/4 x 3 3/4 from more Neenah Solar White card stock. I die cut a few pieces of the hanger die cut from the Thanks For Your Support coordinating die set from SSS. I stuck each hanger together and for the top most piece, I covered it in VersaMark and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder for American Crafts. That made it look like a steel/metal hanger which was the look I was going for.

For the envelopes, I stamped the smallest envelope from the Happy Thoughts stamp set on different patterns from Pink Paislee. I attached the envelopes on the hanger with blue twine from Maya Road. For the sentiment, I used Milo’s ABC from Lawn Fawn in Memento Paris Dusk ink and a sentiment from the Love This set using Lipstick Red ink. I rounded the corners of the front panel and adhered it with foam tape.

That’s it for this card. For a list of the tools and supplies I used on the card, please check the supply list below.

Simon Says Stamp July 2014 Card Kit Completed

Hi everyone! I’m here today to share a few cards that I made with the Simon Says Stamp July 2014 Card Kit. I made a total of 11 cards for this kit. I already shared 3 and I will share another 3 today. I have a 7th card that I will share tomorrow. As for the balance 4 cards, they were mostly inspirations from the inspiration sheet we received with the card kit so I won’t be sharing those anymore since they were mostly CASE cards.

The Simon Says Stamp Card Kit is an awesome deal. It is a monthly subscription of card making supplies with a theme each month. To purchase each kit is 24.95 on its own. If you decide to subscribe it will be 19.95 which is reasonable price since you are getting a full size stamp set every month. I love receiving the kit each month because it definitely helps kick start my creativity.

Now for the first card —

Thinking of You Chevron

I started this card with a standard size Neenah Solar White card stock with the fold on top. For the chevron design, I am using my favorite technique which Jennifer McGuire demonstrated here. I love chevrons and when I saw Jennifer’s tutorial, I knew I would be doing this all the time. For the chevron pattern, I used the patterned papers from Pink Paislee that was included in the kit. Instead of using the chevron stripes as a whole sheet, I decided to cut each strip so I could place them randomly on the card. I ran the stripes on my Xyron Sticker Maker to make it easier to stick.

For the sentiment, I used the sentiment from the stamp set included in the kit. I stamped it using Lipstick Red ink from SSS. I also randomly stamped some of the hearts around the sentiment the same red ink. To finish the card, I accented the hearts with some Clear Wink of Stella pen and locked the shine with some Glossy Accents.

Here is the second card —

Thinking Of You

For this card, I was inspired by a card I saw at my local grocery store. I forgot to take a picture but it had stripes printed on the background so I knew I wanted to use strips of paper using the Pen Pal collection. I chose a few patterns and cut them into 1/4 inch strips. I started sticking the strips at the center and worked my way to each side. I decided to  arrange them randomly with different heights. I used Neenah Desert Storm as my main card base. The card is standard size with the fold on  top.

For the main element, I cut a circle using the Sizzix Circle Framelits set from the same kraft card stock. I embellished it with the typewriter, heart and thought bubble puffy stickers from the Pen Pal collection from Pink Paislee.

And here is the final card —

Hello Circles

I started this card with some Neenah Solar White card stock cut to standard size card. Using the patterned papers, I cut 1 inch circles and adhered in 2 lines on the front of the card. For the sentiment, I used the round hello greeting from the same set. I embossed it on Blueberry card stock from Bazzill using the AC Zing Gold Metallic embossing powder. I stuck the other circles straight on to the card stock but for the Hello sentiment, I adhered it using foam squares for added dimension.

I had some left over strips from the previous card, so I cut one side at a diagonal and adhered it to the card. To finish, I rounded the bottom corners.

That’s it for this post and card kit. For more information on the tools and supplies I used for the cards, please check the supply list below.

The theme for this challenge is SPOTS AND DOTS.

Here is my card —

Sending Happy Thoughts

I started this card with panel of Neenah Solar White card stock that measures 5 1/4 x 4 inches. I used the circle border stamp from the SSS Sending Happy Thoughts set. I stamped it vertically in different rainbow colors from Hero Arts and Memento (The list of colors will be in the supply list below.)

For the sentiment, I stamped it in VersaMark and embossed with with clear embossing powder. With a sponge dauber and the Hero Arts Mint Julep ink, I sponged in the color to reveal the embossed sentiment. I also took a 1/4 inch strip of Pool Layering Paper from Hero Arts and adhered it in between the stamped dots and the sentiment. I adhered the panel to a standard size landscape card from some Pool Layering Paper.

To finish the card, I accented the strip with some Wink of Stella Clear glitter brush and embellished the sentiment with some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I made a video for this card, you can watch it here or on You Tube.

CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge – Sending Happy Mail

Hi everyone! I’m here with a card using supplies from the Simon Says Stamp July 2014 Card Kit. This card will be an entry for the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #83. Here is the sketch —

CTS_Sketch83

 

 

Instead of using the flowers and the banner sentiment, I decided to use envelopes and a bigger sentiment. Here is my card —

Sending Happy Mail

I started this card with some Taffy card stock from Bazzill cut to a standard size landscape card. I used the envelopes from the Sending Happy Thoughts set and stamped it on different pieces of patterned paper from Pink Paislee that is included in the kit. After cutting the envelopes, I lined the edges with a black marker and arranged it horizontally towards the top of the card in a staggered form. I adhered some of them with a Zig glue pen straight on to the card and the others using foam squares for added dimension.

For the sentiment, I used the sentiment stamps for the same set and stamped it in Delicata Golden Glitz ink. I love the combination of the Taffy card stock with the gold ink. The picture doesn’t do it justice but it is very sparkly in person.

To finish the card, I accented the envelopes with some Wink of Stella clear glitter brush and I also rounded the bottom corners.

That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading.


 

Simon Says Stamp July 2014 Card Kit – Sending Lots of Love

Hi everyone! I’m here today with my first card for the Simon Says Stamp July 2014 Card Kit.

1_302766_FS

 

I love the images that are in the stamp set especially the envelopes. I have been wanting envelope stamps for a while and I’m happy I finally have them. So for this card, I decided to use them. I don’t think this is my favorite card that I’ve made but I decided to share it anyway.

Here is my card —

Sending Lots of Love

I started this card with a  5 1/4 x 4 inch panel of Bazzill Blueberry Sour card stock. I masked off the bottom area for my sentiment and then I stamped the envelopes in a random pattern. I stamped the envelopes using Versamark ink and then I added gold embossing powder from Zing.

For the sentiment, I used the “Sending Lots of Love” sentiment and also stamped it in Versamark and embossed it with the same gold embossing powder. I added a heart also included in the kit.

To finish the card, I adhered the panel on Taffy card stock from Bazzill cut and folded to a  standard size landscape card.

Please check the supply list below for details on the products I used.

That’s it for today. You can watch the video below or on YouTube.
