Well, All I Can Say Is… Thanks!

Another Pinterest inspired card. I mixed up the colours a little bit to add my own flair.

I started with a Smokey Slate background. I embossed the sentiment from the retired Massive Thanks stamp set using white embossing powder. I die cut the letters using colours from the Brights Family (Poppy Parade, Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point & Gorgeous Grape). I placed a sheet of Adhesive Sheets (152334) behind the cardstock before running it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine.

The inside sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point ink using the same Massive Thanks stamp set.

2021 Graduation Cards

I needed to make a few graduation cards for family & friends. I used the same template for both but changed the focal colour to match their school colours.

The card base was die cut using the Brick & Mortar 3D EF. After I embossed it, I lightly ran the Basic White craft ink pad over it to add a little dimension to the bricks. I die cut the numbers using the retired Large Number dies. I used Basic Gray & retired Galvanized Metallic paper for the numbers. The accents are also retired items; but they give a simple masculine bling that I was looking for.

Today’s Plan:

This fabulous card was cased by one of my favourite Canadian demonstrators, Crafty Carrot.

I am so happy the In Good Taste DSP carried over! I layered the DSP on a piece of Early Espresso onto the Grey Granite card base. Evening Evergreen was cut using the Layering Circles dies. On Basic White, I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set. To get the “and be awesome” to fit the bottom, I slightly curved the photopolymer stamp. Pretty cool, eh?! I used Bubblebee & Grey Granite layers under the BEER. I die cut the BEER using Early Espresso cardstock. I placed a sheet of Adhesive Sheet behind the cardstock before die cutting it with the Playful Alphabet dies

Love & Laughter

Another Pinterest card. Because this is a special wedding card, I wanted to dress up the card base. I used Shimmery White cardstock instead of the usual Basic White. I used Grey Granite as the subtle accent colour. The center was embossed using the retired Scripty EF. I wrapped a piece of Grey Granite Shimmer Ribbon (152463) around the square base. I punched one heart using the Heart Punch Pack (151292) in Grey Granite & another in vellum. For a subtle bling I used one of the retired Clear Epoxy Droplets. The sentiment is from the Forever Fern stamp set (152559) inked in Grey Granite.

Happy Birthday- You’re a Peach

I knew exactly who was getting this card; a dear friend in Georgia had a June birthday. I started with a Grey Granite cardstock. I layered the You’re a Peach DSP with Basic White for some added dimension. I die cut 3 of the peaches. I stamped them first with Pale Papaya then with a sponge dauber I dabbed the edges with Calypso Coral ink. The stems are in Pear Pizzazz. I wrapped linen thread about the base & ties a simple bow. The sentiment is from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set.

For the inside of the card, I used a Basic White card base. I stamped the peach again using the sponge dauber. The leaves are in Pear Pizzazz. The sentiment is from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set inked in Grey Granite.
