Simple Special Celebrations Card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which featuring the Special Celebrations stamp set! Whether you are making a card for an upcoming wedding, or even an anniversary, this quick and easy card will surely mean the world to the recipient! I chose to pair this stamp set with All My Love DSP and Be Mine Stitched Shapes Framelits to show you not only how to use up your DSP, but also to combine products you may not have thought about!

For the card front, start with Lovely Lipstick cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, this design from All My Love DSP, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”, and Vellum cardstock, cut at 3 ½” x 4 ¾”:

You will also use about 4 ¼” of the Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon, this heart die cut out of Lovely Lipstick cardstock, and a ¾” piece of Whisper White cardstock, the sentiment heat embossed in silver, and then the ends punched with the Banner Triple Punch:

To assemble the card front, I first positioned the Vellum cardstock on the DSP, used blocks to keep in place, and then placed some adhesive in the middle of the ribbon to adhere to the Vellum cardstock:

I then used some liquid glue (or you can use snail) on the back of the Vellum cardstock behind the ribbon, place on the DSP, and then adhere the ends of the ribbon to the back of the DSP:

I then used liquid glue (or if you have the adhesive sheets, place that on the back of the cardstock before cutting with the die) to adhere the die cut heart on top of the ribbon and DSP, place mini dimensionals at the end of the sentiment (this will also help secure the die cut heart to the vellum), and then adhere this completed piece to the Lovely Lipstick cardstock base layer:

This completed card front will be adhered to a Whisper White cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, I cut another piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 ¾” x 5” to layer on top, and then heat embossed the sentiment in silver embossing powder. I decided to use the rose die from the set in Lovely Lipstick cardstock and adhered to the bottom corner:

Stunning but easy card to make! You can easily change this DSP up or even “create your own” DSP using the Forever Lovely stamp set to customize your colors! All the products used for this card are carrying over to the new catalog, EXCEPT the All My Love DSP, this is on the retirement list and is only available while supplies last.

Rustic Wedding Wishes

Welcome to another exciting week of crafting! This week’s theme is going to be Wedding’s and Anniversaries! We all know someone that is getting married or celebrating an anniversary, right? This is going to give me the opportunity to get my creative juices flowing!

To make today’s “Rustic Wedding” card, start with a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”:

fullsizeoutput_1764

The base layer is Crumb Cake cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. This is ran thru the Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF and I dragged my Early Espresso ink pad across first (inking it up):

fullsizeoutput_1768

The next layer is a piece of DSP from the Wood Textures DSP Stack, cut at 3” x 4”:

fullsizeoutput_176e

I cut a piece of Gold Glimmer paper measuring 2 ½” x 2 ½”, peeling off the back sheet (this helps when you are using a detailed thinlit), and adhering it to a 2 ½” 2 ½” piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet. This piece is then ran thru the Big Shot using the smaller rose thinlit from the Rose Garden Thinlit Dies. Since I am only using the outline of the rose, the other inner pieces will be put in a small bag and used for another project:

The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set, stamped in Early Espresso ink on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that is cut out with the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits:

fullsizeoutput_1774

To put the card together, adhere the embossed cardstock to the card base:

fullsizeoutput_1777

Then adhere the DSP on top, around the middle:

fullsizeoutput_177a

Peel the adhesive sheet backing from the rose and place that on top of the DSP:

fullsizeoutput_177d

The sentiment is then adhered on top with dimensionals and I added a piece of Jute Twine that I tied in a bow and adhered with glue dots (Note: the Jute Twine is retired from the 2017 Holiday Catalog, however, I have a ton of it and decided to use this. You can use Copper Trim, Linen Thread, or any other ribbon or trim that you may have.):

fullsizeoutput_1780

The inside sentiment and flower are also from the Rose Wonder stamp set, stamped in Early Espresso in on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_1783

I really like how this card turned out and you could swap out the sentiment for a birthday or even thinking of you. What do you think of this card?
