Pink Bird, Prayers card

I was going to enter anouther card challenge but could not think of a new idea so I did a CASE a copy and selective edit card.  I used what I had in my stash to re create a card from Pinterest.

 I started with a Whisper White card stock mat sized 4 by 5 1/4.

I am using the Hero Arts CL866 stamp set and my Hero Arts Stamp Perfect Tool.
 I double stamped each color.

The first Pretty in Pink.

The next layer Sahara Sand.

And the third layer in Soft Suede.
 The eye and beak layer is Versa Fine Black Onyx ink.
 The branch in Chocolate Chip ink.
 I added anouther branch in the top left.
 While my project was still in the Stamping Tool I used a traditional block and stamped two more branches below in the upper left corner.
 The leaves in Lucky Limeade.
 Again useing my stamping block after I stamped the top left one,  it was easier because for the bottom three I only need one leaf so I was able to selectively ink and stamp the leaf I needed.
 I die cut the Hero Arts DC183 in Whisper White card stock as well and inked it halfway in my Pretty in Pink ink pad.

I used a make up sponge to gently dab half the word in the ink pad.
 I soften the middle line by adding more ink with the make up sponge and gently while holding the die cut with one hand adding ink the that middle line.
 I cut a second out and glued them together using a Zig 2 Way Glue pen
I stamped the back with one the stamps in that cordinating set in Chocolate Chip ink.

I also used some scrap foam adhesive to line my main panel.

I made a Pretty in Pink card base.

I used the same glue pen to glue the prayers to the front of the card.

I used Versa Fine Black Onyx ink again to add the sentiment above it.

MFT Sketch Challenge 366

I decided to play along with a Sketch Challenge for my first card of 2018, would you like to play along with My Favorite Things, Click Here to join.



 I started off with a 4 by 5 1/4 inch white heavy weight card stock and some scrap card stock that I cut three circles with using a die from my stash.

I temporary adhered the circles with removable adhesive.
 With the pre cut circle already on my card panel it was easy to make sure my circles were lined up nicely when I re ran them threw my big shot.
 Some jewerly wire cutters to detach the cordinating dies from each other.
 These dies are an older set from My Favorite Things and make it hard to line up after you stamped the image so I cut them from the same card stock as the main panel first before stamping.

I cut two of each just in case I mess up stamping.
 Some foam on the back of the main panel.

I used plenty because no one wants a saggy card.
 I used a heavy weight light blue card stock for my card base.

I also set the main panel on top and gently drew the circles with a pencil which will help me place my stamped images.
 Busted out my copics to color my images.
 Very simple coloring, I stamped my images with Staz On Jet Black ink first.
 Tombow Mono Glue to adhere the tree and bird house.

I ended up cutting part of the string to the bird house because it was too long.

Anouther banner die from My Favorite Things for the sentiment.

One bird is flat on the card, and the other bird is raised and glued down.

I will leave the inside blank for now.

Teacher Christmas Cards Design #1

I always make the girls Teachers cards near each Holiday and for this Christmas I decided to leave them blank on the inside and outside, I mean no sentiment that way they can use them how ever they would like this Holiday Season.

Here is Design #1...  I make 5 of each design for a total of 5 Designs with 25 cards...

I am using from Micheal's that are new this year in their store Cards and Envelopes pre cut and scored and sized at 3.5 by 4 7/8.  They come with 30 in a pack which is nice when I mess up on accident designing each card.  They retail $4.99.

 I am using the Hampton Art Stamp Perfect Tool to make stamping quick and easy.

I have the first layer of the wreath at the top and the second layer at the bottom.
 That way I can stamp two cards at once.
 Once I have 10 cards stamped I clean are remove the stamps and add the berries on top.

I am using Old Olive, Pear Pizzaz, and Cherry Cobbler ink for the wreath colors.
I again used Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White card stock and die cut them with the matching die and some washi tape during the die cutting process to make sure the die does not move around.

I am adding some foam at the top of the bow for some dimension.
All done

Close up.

I used some Range Stickles in the color Christmas Red.

I sent a Christmas Card #2

I loved this design so much that I wanted to make two, it was also simple and quick.

I mainly used Stampin Up product but I am sure if you look threw your stash you could find something to use as well.

 I am using Whisper White card stock for the circle cut out and 110 pound White card stock for the inside panel.

I used Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder for the sentiments.
 I am using Riding Hood Red ink to stamp my houses.

I used a blender pen to fix my imperfections, works wonders.
 Look how seemless it looks since I touched up the roofs.

I used Gumball Green ink for the trees, I started off with the bigger tree first.
 I then added the smaller trees and was happy with the stamping and felt it didn't need to be touched up.
I added the stars with Smokey Slate ink and again starting with the bigger star.
 I tried to stay with odd numbers because they say thats pleaseing to the eye but if you count the trees I stamped six but they are three on each side.
 I used Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to glue the Whisper White circle onto the Riding Hood Red scallop circle.
Using the circle die again I cut out some fun foam in a red color and added some double sided tape to each side, this will give the circle even demnsion and help the card not to sag going threw the mail.
Finished card with front of the envelope

 Close up
 Inside of card, I cut up some 12X12 pattern paper for the wood grain on the front and had enough extra that was scrap I just cut in half to put on the inside of the card.

I sent a Christmas Card #1

Isn't that a cool title, I sent a Christmas Card...

I made this one using two stamp sets from My Favorite Things and they are called Christmas Cuteness and Jingle all the Way.

 I started off with 110 pound Cream card stock and used my embossing powder tool to coat the card stock before stamping the reindeer in VersaMark ink.
 I would stamp a few and then add some Zing embossing powder on them in the color Chestnut.

This allows me to see where I have already stamped since Versamark is a clear sticky ink.
 I used my heat tool to melt and set the powder tell it is shiny.

I cut the card stock bigger because I plan to die cut the panel with a stiched die.
I am using the Kuretake watercolor set to color in the reindeers.

I used number 47 and 30 for the reindeer.
 Don't worry about that mess up on one of the noses I will cover that up with my sentiment.
 I am using Ranger embossing powder in the color Gold on the same card stock as my base.
 I decided to add some gold splatter to the back ground to bring in some shine, I used number 91 for that.
 I stamped and embossed the inside in the same colors I used on the out side.
 I tried to add some gold thread but I did not like it so I took it off.

Easy to try things and remove them if they are not all they way glued down.
Finished Card

 Close up.

I also put the main panel on foam and the sentiment as well.

I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles to cut out the reindeer back ground once it was completly dry.

 Stamping the back of the card and the back of the envelope.
I added a embossed reindeer to the front of the card as well.
