Time to celebrate!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and light celebratory card made with a few products that you may not have thought to combine! I just love how you can create whatever color flowers you want with the Floral Essence stamp set, so combining them with the Garden Lane DSP was so easy! I also gave the leaves a different look by stamping them in Frost White Shimmer Paint before punching them out!

The base layer is this design from the Garden Lane DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front you will need:

1. Two big and two small flowers stamped in Soft Sea Foam ink, the centers stamped in Mossy Meadow ink, and fussy cut out.

2. The sentiment stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on a 1” x 4” piece of Whisper White cardstock, one end punched with the Delightful Tag Topper punch and the other end with the Banner Triple Punch.

3. Cut a 1 ½” x 4 ¼” piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock with both ends punched the same as the sentiment piece to layer underneath.

4. Stamp the leaf on Mossy Meadow cardstock five times with Frost White Shimmer Paint, let dry, and punch out with the coordinating punch. Tip-use a craft sheet to pour a drop of the shimmer paint (it’s a big drop) and then lightly tap the stamp to get the paint on it and stamp off before stamping on cardstock to get any excess paint off. I wiped the stamp with a baby wipe and ran under water to rinse, then cleaned as normal:

To assemble:

1. Adhere the layered sentiment piece to the middle of the DSP base layer.

2. Adhere one of the big flowers with two of the leaves to the top corner of the sentiment and then adhere one leave to the small flower, adhering this with a dimensional next to the big flower.

3. Adhere the other big flower with one leaf to the bottom corner of the sentiment and adhere the other small flower with the leaf below the big flower with a dimensional:

This completed piece is adhered to a Sahara Sand cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. I decided to add some Wink of Stella to the flower centers, it’s a little hard to see it:

The inside sentiment is on Whisper White cardstock, stamped in Mossy Meadow ink, and adhere a ½” x 5 ¼” strip of coordinating DSP along the bottom:

I just love how the leaves look on the cardstock stamped in shimmer paint! If the shimmer paint is taking a bit to dry, you can always help it along with your heat tool, just be careful! This card really is versatile, can be used for any celebration!

Create a fun card with the Praiseworthy Prose Bundle!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which feature’s the new Praiseworthy Prose Bundle! As sad as I was when SU! retired the Letters for You stamp set and the Large Letter Framelits, I was so excited to see the new Hand Letter Prose Dies!! What is so great about these new dies, is that they are smaller and you can fit more letters on the front of your card! So, when you pair the Praiseworthy Prose stamp set with the dies, you really do have a variety of cards that can be made with this bundle!! After the card tutorial, I will share a few pictures about the dies so you can see for yourself how these are different.

The base layer for this card is this design from Mosaic Mood DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, I used the letters to cut out the sentiment in Gold Foil and Mint Macaron cardstock, which I used my fine tip glue pen to adhere the Mint Macaron cardstock to the back of the Gold Foil letter. The sentiment is stamped in Soft Sued ink (you can either use a stampin’ write marker or mask the lines and stamp with your ink pad) on a ½” x 3” piece of Very Vanilla cardstock (I always keep the strips of VV and WW cardstock when I am cutting for the inside of a card), stamping each line one at a time and I just used my snips to trim the ends at an angle. I cut three strips of Soft Suede cardstock at 5/8” x 3 1/8” to layer under the sentiments, again using my snips to trim the ends at an angle. Finally, you will need enough Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon to tie into a bow around the DSP base layer:

To assemble the card front, I adhered the die cut letters across the middle of the DSP with my fine tip glue pen, tied the ribbon around the lower part of the DSP into a bow, adhered the sentiments with dimensionals, and then adhered this to the Soft Suede cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The inside sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays is on Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” X 5 ¼”, stamped in Soft Suede ink, and the background stamp from Praiseworthy Prose is stamped in Mint Macaron ink:

Isn’t this bundle just awesome?? I almost didn’t get the stamp set, but then I thought about it and decided to get the bundle after all because they have some great sentiments! Now, I took some additional pictures of the dies so that if you have been considering these, maybe it might help you. 

The first picture is of all the dies on a 8” x 7” Magnetic Card (from Stamp-n-Storage), so you can see that the 43 dies fit on this:

The second picture is of the Mint Macaron cardstock that I used to die cut the letters and if you notice, there is no “outline” left on the cardstock from the dies. The dies from Large Letters Framelits always left the “outline” impression on the cardstock when die-cutting:

The last picture is of a few of the dies, showing how big these dies really are:

So, you can fit more letters for a bigger saying or even a couple of words on your card front, they are very easy to use, and a little bit more affordable! I definitely recommend these dies!!
