Something Sweet Gumball Machine Card for Girls

gumball_girl

So cute! This gumball machine is too cute, and I’m thinking of lots of different things to fill it with! The Sweet Treat Cups also coordinate with this stamp set so you can make a real life gumball machine of your own!

The card I made uses Pale Plum card stock, layered with Shades of Spring Designer Series Paper in a fun polka dot pattern. I stamped the gumball machine from Something Sweet in Pale Plum ink on whisper white card stock. I cut it out with my paper snips. Then, I stamped the circle/glass part of the gumball machine in Pale plum ink, also on whisper white, and punched it out using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. Using the Cropadile, I punched holes in the 1 3/4″ Circle and added various Circle Rhinestone Brads (pink, purple, green, and yellow).

Next, I took some Barely Banana card stock and paper pierced the edges. Then, I went over the holes with my White Gel Pen to get a stitched look. Finally, using a Sponge Dauber, I sponged some Barely Banana ink along the very edges of the card stock. That was layered onto Pretty ink Pink card stock with Stampin Dimensionals.

Then, I adhered my gumball machine pieces to the Barely Banana layer with Stampin Dimensionals. The ribbon is Certainly Celery Twill (retired), tied in a knot and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.

Tote-ally Tess Made you a Cupcake

Ever since I saw the stamp set Tote-ally Tess, I knew I was going to have her holding a cupcake! The set comes with stamping stuff, which is cute, but I hope they come out with other kinds of accessories for her too!

The card base is Pale Plum. I layered Shades of Spring DSP on to Basic Black card stock to make it pop more. Tess is stamped with Memento Black ink on white card stock. I colored her in with Copic Markers. The cupcake is from Crazy for Cupcakes, also colored with Copic Markers and popped up with a Stampin Dimensional.

The sentiment is from Tote-ally Tess stamp set, which I stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White card stock. Again, I layered it with Basic Black and attached it to the base with Dimensionals.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Hope 2010 is going to be a good year for my family and yours!

Distressed Flower Card

I decided to try something a little different than my usual style this time around. I guess I have a hard time with the distressed look because I always want things to be perfect! I’m kidding, but the more clean look is definitely my strong suit.

The base here is textured rich razzleberry, layered with a piece of Chocolate Chip DSP in the striped pattern.

As for the main image, I took a piece of Pale Plum card stock and put it through the Crimper a few times, both the long way and then again the opposite way. This produced a quilted look and really softened up the paper.

Next, I stamped the flower from Embrace Life in white craft ink 3 times, following with White Embossing Powder and heat gun. To color in the flowers, I used Pale Plum ink and Aquapainter just to makethem stand out a little more. In the center of each flower, I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds.

Before adhering the pale plum layer, I tore the edge and curled it up a bit with my Bone Folder. Then, I adhered it to the Chocolate Chip DSP and using the Cropadile, added 2 Basic 5/16″ Brads in brown. That was then attached to the card base using SNAIL adhesive.

Finally, I stamped the “fabulous friend” from Oval All in Pale Plum ink on Whisper White card stock, punched it out with the Large Oval Punch and layered it with a chocolate chip Scallop Oval Punch. In the center of the pale plum flower, I also added more Dazzling Diamonds and attached the whole thing to the card front with dimensionals.
