America Card #3

Here is my #3 America Card, I got the idea for the card here.

Again using supplies from my own craft room and changing things up to make it my own.

 Here I am again laying out the idea for the card but using the upper left corner of my work mat.
 I have die cut my pieces from Bazzil Wax Lips and Whirlypop card stock along with some Stampin Up Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.
 Adding Stampin Up dimensionals and Some Tombow Mono liquid glue.
 I embossed a piece of 4 by 5 1/4 white card stock with a striped embossing folder from Stampin Up.

I am using the I guess you would call it debossed side for this card.

I added small dots of Tombow Mono liquid glue.
 Using a Pick Me Up stick to help add the stars.
 This is a Stamps of Life Circle Dots stencil that I thought looked like Fireworks and some Real Red(Stampin Up) ink on this Turquoise envelope from Hobby Lobby.

Blender Brush from Taylored Expressions.
 I got some different address lables from Shutterfly to match all different occasions.
Finished Card.

Close up, Side view.

I think it gives the perfect amount of dimension and texture.

America Card #2

I found this card on Pinterest and wanted to re create using the supplies I have on hand.

 These are a bunch of Stamps of Life dies that I kinda just threw in a bag.

I have a A2 card frame taped on my mat to help with card design.
 I used purple tape to hold the whole thing together and placed it over a piece of Bazzil card stock in the color Whirlypop.
 I then used Tombow Mono liquid glue to adhere the die cut panel to ta piece of Hobby Lobby Beargrass Metallic paper.
 I made a top folding card base from some 110 pound white card stock.

I cut some 1 inch stripes of the same Beargrass Metallic paper and Bazzil Wax Lips.
 I cut down the extra from the one inch strips.

I also added some stick strip and a thin scrap of black card stock instead of using ribbon.
Finished card.

 I decided to add more then just one small accent star like the card inspiration.

I added a total of five and used Stampin Up mini dimensional foam to adhere them.
 I tried to capture the shimmer from the Hobby Lobby Beargrass Metallic paper but its hard to capture via my camera but in real life it is pretty pretty.
I decided to use a Simon Says Stamp set called Cupcake Party and grouped all the stars from the set and stamped the from in Stampin Up Pacific Point ink.

The celebrate sentiment came from the same stamp set.f

This is the front of the envelope.
 And just for kicks I decided to go all out on the back of the envelope as well.

I included Stampin Up Real Red ink.
This is the Cupcake Party stamp set.

I got in a card kit a very very very long time ago but I reach for it often because of the star image.

America Card #1

So first time in my new craft room and I am loving it, I decided to try and get ahead of the game and make some cards for the 4th of July and do blogging as well.

Here is card #1

 I started off by scoring some Night of Navy card stock from Stampin Up.

This will be a landscape card.
I also used some glitter paper from Stampin Up that I believe is called Dazzleing Diamonds and a star punch as well to punch out 9 stars.
 I started off with a 3X3 square of Night of Navy but after adding my stars using Stampin Up's mini foam dots I trimmed it down to roughly 2 1/4 square.
 Using an old Fiskars border punch along with some white card stock and some red from Gina K Designs I just kinda free handed the hight and width.

I popped it up using Stampin Up's regular foam dots on a piece of black cardstock that is 1/4 inch shy of the the 4 1/4 inch by 5 1/2 inch card base.
Side View.

Finished Card.

Inside, I used some more Gina K Designs red card stock and the same border punch to decorate the inside of the card.

Friend Card #2

Here is the second card I made in the new craft room of our new home.

I am really enjoying this space.

 I am using my Tim Holtz media mat to blend my inks in the colors Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, and Black Soot.

I used Bristol Smooth card stock and my Taylored Expressions blender brushes.
 Started off with my pink.
 Then added the purple on edges, blending between the colors to create a seemless blend.
 I added black around the edges and slightly in the center.

Trying to go for a Northern Lights feel.
 Some Titanium White paint for some stars.
 Some watered down Pearlex Aztec Gold powder to create some shimmer and more stars.
 A close up with the flash on.
 Not a new die but a die I have not used before.

I cut out two from black card stock.
 I stamped the inside with the rock and roll technique and also stamped off once then onto the inside to make it not so intense.
Finished card.

 I added a gold embossed sentiment.

One a Blackberry Bliss top folding card base and a couple of strips of Melon Mambo card stock.
 Close up, no foam dimension on this card, I left it all flat.
Close up of the inside of the card.

I used Melon Mambo and Blackberry Bliss ink for the inside.

Friend Card #1

I decided to make a few cards for my friends now that we are mostly settled in our new home and I have my very nice large craft room now.

My creativity was flowing and decided to bring out some new product.



 This stamp set I have had for a while but not really used and have found it has some great encouragement sentiments.

Its from MFT and called Complimentary Greetings.

 I used my Hampton Art Stamp Tool to stamp them all out using MFT ink called Black Licorice.
 This is a new die set that I purchased recently from MFT called Straight Up Rainbow.
 I used some white card stock from my stash for the cloud faces.

I used Stampin Up card stock for the rays.
- Riding Hood Red, Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Night of Navy, and Rich Razzleberry.
 After cutting them out I added them onto copy paper with my tape runner adhesive.
 I added some foam to the rays after I cut them out from the copy paper.

My card bases are our of Cool Caribbean.
 I added foam to each side of the sentiment and the bottom of the cloud.

I also added a bit of tape runner to the other areas of the sentiment and cloud.
 Alas, I added some gems from Hobby Lobby. The one other sad thing about Alaska, no Hobby Lobby.
I have 5 more of these cards in my stash now.

 I made these top folding cards, adhered the blue panel flat.

I also used Tombow Mono Liquid glue for the gems.
