More than all the stars

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features the Little Twinkle Bundle! This bundle from the Annual Catalog has been on my shopping list, so when I made my pre-order for the 2018 Holiday Catalog and saw that the Twinkle Builder Punch coordinates with the Spooky Sweets Bundle, well I just had to get both! I just love the sentiments from the Little Twinkle stamp set and since Moon Baby was retired, this made it to my shopping list!! While this is obviously a great set for a baby card, you can actually use it for other occasions: child/grandchild birthday, spouse birthday, wedding, and anniversary. I didn’t order the coordinating Designer Series Paper because I wasn’t sure about it, but now I’ve taken some time to look and get some ideas, it will definitely be on my next order!

To create this card, first start with a piece of Night of Navy cardstock for the base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The next two layers are Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and Night of Navy cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:

For the Night of Navy top layer, I first stamped the single star and heart stamps in Craft Whisper White ink:

For the moon and stars, I used the Twinkle Builder Punch to cut out pieces from a scrap of Silver Foil:

The moon and three bigger stars are adhered with mini dimensionals and everything else I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen. For these small pieces I used the Take Your Pick tool and that was a life saver!!:

I added a little more sparkle with the Rhinestone Basic Jewells and then used some Silver Baker’s Twine to wrap around the bottom three times and tie into a bow:

I then adhered the Night of Navy cardstock to the Whisper White cardstock with dimensionals. This piece is then adhered to the card base with snail adhesive:

The inside sentiment and accent stamps are stamped in Night of Navy ink:

Wasn’t that quick and easy? This is a great example of how this could be a birthday card or even an anniversary card.

Happy Anniversary

Hello and welcome to another day featuring Weddings and Anniversaries! Today’s card is celebrating an anniversary and I wanted to incorporate Painted with Love DSP, but also making it quick and easy.

The card base is Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut at 5 ½’ x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_17c5

The base layer is Melon Mambo cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_17c8

The next layer is from the Painted with Love DSP cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:

fullsizeoutput_17cb

I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 1 ½” x 5 ½” and used the Banner Triple Punch on one end:

fullsizeoutput_17ce

The sentiment for the front of the card is from the Number of Years stamp set, stamped in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White cardstock. It is then cut out with the 5thlargest oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and I used another piece of the Painted with Love DSP to cut out the 3rdlargest scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits. Then adhere the two pieces together:

The Painted with Love DSP layer is adhered to the Melon Mambo base layer:

fullsizeoutput_17d7

The Whisper White banner is adhered on top of the DSP and then the sentiment is adhered on top of that with dimensionals:

I used three of the Rich Razzleberry heart shapes from the Brights Enamel Shapes on the banner:

fullsizeoutput_17e3

The inside sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set, stamped in Melon Mambo ink and the flowers in Pink Powder ink:

fullsizeoutput_17e0

I just love how this card turned out and it is a great way to use up your Designer Series Paper!

Beautiful Blessing

Hello and welcome to another day featuring Weddings and Anniversaries! Today’s card I made for an anniversary, trying out the Polished Stone Technique! If this is something you are going to try, I highly recommend wearing gloves as you will get ink all over your fingers!

The card base is Island Indigo cardstock, but at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”:

fullsizeoutput_17ae

The base layer is Sahara Sand cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_17b1

The next layer is Glossy Cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”. Since I wanted more of a relaxed, beach theme for this card, I chose Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, and Soft Suede ink refills to create the sand appearance and Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, and Island Indigo ink refills to create the sky. I also used a cotton ball for each color and some people spritz the cotton ball with Rubbing Alcohol, but I found it made no difference:

fullsizeoutput_179e

Here is what the sand and sky look like, there really is no rhyme or reason, just what you want it to look like. The birds are from the High Tide stamp set, stamped in Archival Black ink:

I used the chair and drink thinlits from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, the drink is in Tempting Turquoise cardstock and the chair is from the Wood Textures DSP Stack:

fullsizeoutput_17ab

The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set, heat embossed in Copper Embossing Powder on a 1” piece of Sahara Sand cardstock, and the ends are punched out with the Banner Triple Punch:

fullsizeoutput_17b4

I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals for the chairs and drinks, here is a picture of how I positioned them:

fullsizeoutput_17b7

The chairs, drinks, and sentiment are adhered to the top layer and I used Stampin’ Dimensionals for the sentiment. This is then adhered to the base layer and then the card base:

The sentiment is from the Number of Years stamp set, heat embossing in Copper Embossing Powder on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I used the stamp from High Tide to stamp along the bottom in Sahara Sand ink:

fullsizeoutput_17be

This was my first time with this technique and even though it’s a bit messy, I will definitely try it again! What do you think?
