fullsizeoutput_1d55

On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, the sentiment from the Truly Tailored stamp set is stamped in Night of Navy ink, punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch, and two more pieces of the DSP are punched out with this punch as well. I cut a piece of the Crumb Cake Classic Weave Ribbon and tied a knot in the middle:

fullsizeoutput_1d58

I cut the punched pieces of DSP in half and then used liquid glue to adhere to the back of the sentiment piece:

The 2” DSP is adhered to the base layer and then the ribbon is adhered across:

fullsizeoutput_1d61

The front sentiment is adhered with dimensionals and I used two buttons from the True Gentleman Buttons, linen thread is tied in the middle, and adhered with glue dots. This base layer is then adhered to the card base:

fullsizeoutput_1d64

The inside sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip and Night of Navy inks:

fullsizeoutput_1d67

The strip of DSP is adhered with Snail and glue dots for the buttons:

Lookin’ Sharp!

Hello and welcome to today’s card featuring the True Gentleman Suite! Since the last two days featured Manly Moments from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit and this upcoming Saturday is Stamp It Groups Father’s Day Blog Hop, I’m going to keep the theme of Father’s Day and Masculine Cards going! Today we are going to create a quick and simple card that is great if you are pressed for time or would like to make multiples of!

The card base is Tranquil Tide cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_1d0f

The base layer is from the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_1d12

On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, and punch out using the Tailored Tag Punch. Cut a piece of 2” x 2” Night of Navy cardstock to layer the sentiment on:

fullsizeoutput_1d16

Cut a piece of Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon long enough to go across the middle and adhere to the back of the DSP:

 

Adhere the base layer to the card base:

fullsizeoutput_1d1f

After adhering the punched sentiment to the 2” x 2” cardstock, use dimensionals to adhere across the ribbon:

fullsizeoutput_1d22

After I did this, I felt like the card needed a little something more, so I used some Linen Thread on two buttons from the True Gentleman Buttons and adhered those with glue dots:

fullsizeoutput_1d25

For the inside sentiment on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Very Vanilla cardstock, it is stamped in Tranquil Tide ink and then I used my Stamparatus for the images along the bottom in Night of Navy ink:

 

fullsizeoutput_1d2e

Castle Easel Card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is part 5 of Myths & Magic Suite Week! For this week’s final card, I thought I would create a castle scene with an Easel Card! It’s been a while since I made an Easel Card, but I thought this would be fun to make into a castle scene! If you’ve never made an Easel Card, it’s actually very easy to make and it can be for any occasion.

The card base is Thich Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 2 ¾” and at 5 ½”:

fullsizeoutput_1c72

After you burnish the score lines, the card will look like this:

fullsizeoutput_1c75

The base layer is from the Myths & Magic Specialty DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_1c78

I cut a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock to 3” x 4” and embossed this with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder, adding Smoky Slate ink to the embossing folder first. The top of the castle is DSP cut at 1 ½” x 4”, using the Classic Label Punch, and the “drawbridge” is a piece of Wood Textures DSP Stack, cut out with the 3rdsmallest Layering Squares Framelit:

fullsizeoutput_1c7b

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the dragon, flame, knight, and mermaid in Memento ink. These are colored in with Light Lovely Lipstick, Ivory, Light Cherry Cobbler, Light Pumpkin Pie, Dark Crumb Cake, Light & Dark Old Olive, Light & Dark Daffodil Delight, Light & Dark Night of Navy, Light & Dark Smoky Slate, and the Color Lifter from the Stampin’ Blends. These are then cut out with the coordinating framelits, I snipped the mermaid’s tail off because she will be a princess in this scene:

fullsizeoutput_1c7e

I adhered the embossed cardstock and the DSP together and placed the princess peeking out from up top:

fullsizeoutput_1c81

The drawbridge is attached and then I added Black Sequin Jewels at the top:

fullsizeoutput_1c84

This piece is then adhered to the DSP base layer with dimensionals:

fullsizeoutput_1c87

The dragon, fire, and knight are adhered with dimensionals:

fullsizeoutput_1c8a

I used the leaf framelits on the light green 6” x 6” Glimmer Paper and adhered these pieces with liquid glue:

fullsizeoutput_1c8d

I cut this design of DSP to 2 ½” x 4”:
fullsizeoutput_1c90

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist ink and then sponged Old Olive ink around the edge with a Sponge Dauber. This is then cut out with the 5thlarges oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and the leaves are adhered behind with liquid glue:

fullsizeoutput_1c93

The base layer is adhered to the card base on the lower (or bottom) scored piece:

fullsizeoutput_1c97

What would normally be the inside of the card, this piece of DSP is adhered to the lower bottom:

fullsizeoutput_1c9a

Then the sentiment is adhered to this piece with dimensionals:

fullsizeoutput_1c9d

You have room to write your sentiment above this or you have the backside, which is 4” x 5 ¼”!

One of a Kind

Hello and welcome to today’s card, featuring the Myths & Magic Suite! If you are looking for a cute, quick, and easy card to make if your limited on time or need to make multiples of, this is for you! It is also a great way to use up that Designer Series Paper and make room for all the new DSP that is coming out in the new Annual Catalog!

The card base is Tranquil Tide cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

fullsizeoutput_1c3a

The base layer is from the Myths & Magic Specialty DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and then cut again at 2”. This is then flipped over, which makes it look like you are using two different pieces of DSP. From the Myths & Magic 6” x 6” Glimmer Paper, cut a 1” piece from the light green glimmer paper and then trim it to 4”:

fullsizeoutput_1c3d

The front sentiment is from the Magical Day stamp set, stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, first inked in Lemon Lime Twist ink, and then use a Sponge Dauber with Tranquil Tide ink around the edges of the stamp. This is then punched out using the Tailored Tag Punch (FYI: this is going to be carried over into the new catalog):

fullsizeoutput_1c40

To create the card front, first adhere the 4” x 3 ½” piece of DSP to the top, then adhere the 2” x 4” underneath, and the 1” strip of glimmer paper is adhered across the seam between the two pieces of DSP. I used a piece of Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon behind the sentiment and then adhered with dimensionals:

fullsizeoutput_1c43

The inside sentiment is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment is first stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink and then Tranquil Tide ink is sponged around the edges. The smaller stars are stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink and the larger stars are stamped in Tranquil Tide ink:

Lift Your Spirits

Hello and welcome to today’s card, featuring the Myths & Magic Suite! This super cute card is very easy to make, a little ink, some heat embossing, and washi tape is all you need! This will be sure to brighten someone’s day, so let’s get started!

The card base is Dapper Denim cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_1c18

The base layer is Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut at 3 ½” x 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_1c1b

The wizard from the Magical Day stamp set is stamped in Memento ink and colored in with Light Smoky Slate, Ivory, Bronze, and Light Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends. The stars are heat embossed in Silver Embossing Powder:

fullsizeoutput_1c21

I first used the coordinating wizard thinlit so I could mask him before creating the “blue smoke”, then I used the D Clear Block with some Dapper Denim ink and an Aqua Painter to move the ink around the block, and quickly stamped the ink onto the cardstock. To help fill in the spaces that the ink did not color, I used some of the ink from the lid of the Dapper Denim ink pad and the Aqua Painter:

fullsizeoutput_1c24

The mask for the wizard is then removed and I added a small Clear Faceted Gem to his hand:

fullsizeoutput_1c27

Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 1 1/8” x 4” strip and then use the stripe and the stars washi tape from the Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape:

fullsizeoutput_1c2a

The ends are cut with the Banner Triple Punch and the sentiment is from the Lift Me Up stamp set, stamped in Dapper Denim ink on a 1” strip of Whisper White cardstock, trimmed, and then adhered to the banner:

fullsizeoutput_1c2d

The base layer is adhered to the card base with Snail and the banner is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals:

fullsizeoutput_1c31

For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock, 4” x 5 ¼”, use all three rolls for a strip of each across the bottom, the stars are heat embossed in Silver Embossing Powder, and the sentiment, also from the Lift Me Up stamp set, is stamped in Dapper Denim ink:

fullsizeoutput_1c34

Now, since I did not stamp my sentiment first, it came out wrong! So I stamped the sentiment again on a 1” strip of Whisper White cardstock, then used the new Trio Punch to round the corners, and adhered with Dimensionals. Problem Solved!:

fullsizeoutput_1c37

Don’t forget, the Magical Day stamp set, Magical Mates Thinlits Dies, and the Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape are on the Retirement List! If you would like to purchase any of these products, simply click on the product list below and you will find them on my Online Store, while supplies last!!
