Just for You {Thank You Card} New In Color Pool Party

I love the new color Pool Party! It’s my all time favorite color. Layered with chocolate chip and another pattern from Flirtatious Specialty DSP, it’s bright, summery and fun.

The sentiment is from Afterthoughts, a Hostess set, stamped in chocolate chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock. I punched out the circle with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. It’s hard to notice, but I stamped the small flower from Afterthoughts in So Saffron ink, stamping off first for a lighter effect. Around the edges, I sponged on some Pool Party ink using a sponge dauber.

The scallop circle is Melon Mambo textured card stock, punched with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle. I used the cropadile to punch the holes in each scallop (the larger hole punch). Two basic rhinestones and Chocolate Chip Scallop Dot Ribbon finish off the card in terms of accessories.

Bring on the “Number Cake” Birthday Card

My nephew turned 2 today, so I made him this card. I really like this number stamp from Bring on the Cake, and I especially like to emboss it before coloring in the numbers.

The card base is Riding Hood Red, layered with Nursery Suite DSP. I stamped the numbers onto whisper white and then heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder. I colored in the numbers with So Saffron Marker and the number 2 with Riding Hood Red Marker. Then, I used the Corner Rounder Punch on the top corners to make it look like a cake.

The “cake stand” is a strip of Tempting Turquoise punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch. I used the cropadile to add holes to each scallop and then threaded White Taffeta Ribbon through the holes.

I used chocolate chip card stock behind the cake to frame it. White Gel Pen around the edges makes it pop and coordinates with the white details in the DSP. At the bottom, I added 3 old olive buttons from the Designer Buttons Brights Collection.

Take a Spin {Fun Birthday Spinner Card}

Well, Birthday season in my family has officially begun. It starts off slowly in February, then gets CRAZY in March (8 birthdays in the month of March alone) and then every month thereafter. I guess I”ll be making a lot of birthday cards!

This Take a Spin stamp set is a lot of fun. I went to town coloring in all the images with my SU Markers, both directly onto the stamp and then filling in some of the images after it was stamped.

There are 4 different stamps in the set, and the Game Spinner Hands are sold separately in a set of 12.

As you can see from the close up above, I colored the majority of the stamp with Chocolate Chip Marker, (direct to stamp)  using Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Marina Mist as accent colors. Then, I stamped onto Whisper White card stock and trimmed around the game board.

Next, I stamped the image a second time, with White Craft ink onto Marina Mist card stock, heat embossing with White Embossing Powder.

Using the cropadile, I punched a hole in the center of the game board and attached the Game Spinner Hand.  Then, I adhered that piece to the Marina Mist card stock using stampin dimensionals. TIP: If you just slightly bend the ends of the Spinner Hands upward it will spin easily.

My new favorite thing, Daffodil Delight Pom Pom Trim, was glued around the Marina Mist card stock with Tombow Mono Multi. I added a square of card stock behind this piece with stampin dimensionals for added stability so the game board wouldn’t cave in when you touch the spinner.

The card base is Chocolate Chip, which I ran through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. The ribbon is 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain in Marina Mist.

Inside, I lined the card with Marina Mist and Whisper White card stock. I swiped the edges of the White in Chocolate Chip ink and stamped 2 sentiments from Bring on the Cake.
