Two Fun Cards!

My awesome upline, Sherrie, sent us a packet of supplies and asked us to make cards using all the supplies in the baggie, and whatever other supplies we wanted from our stash!  It's a great way to "stamp together" and still stay safe!  

Here are the two cards I made:

CARD: Gather Together

Good morning, and Happy Monday!  This week, I'm highlighting the cards we made at my October Stamp Club!  Laurie requested the technique of inking the embossing folder, so here's what I came up with:

10club1

Measurements

  • Soft Suede: 8 ½” x 5 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”
  • Bermuda Bay: 5 3/8” x 4 1/8”;  2 ½” x 4 ¼” (for leaves)
  • Very Vanilla: 5 ¼” x 4”;  2 ½” x 4 ¼” (for leaf and sentiment)   

Instructions:

  1. Stamp large leaf in Soft Suede Ink on small piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock. Color in the leaf with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen – this will pull in color, and create a light brown leaf. 
  2. Stamp sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink on the same piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock.
  3. Using your die cut machine, cut out Leaf using the Gathered Leaves Dies. Also cut out a large leaf and smaller leaf from the small piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
  4. Cut out your sentiment using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
  5. For the embossing: Using your sponge brayer, add Soft Suede ink to the “flat” side of the embossing folder (the side with the SU! Logo).  Try not to get ink into the “debossed” part.  Add your Very Vanilla Cardstock – I find it’s easier to place your cardstock on the side without ink, align it, then close the folder.  Run through the die cut machine. 
  6. Assemble you card as shown in the picture. The leaves are adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. For the Clear Droplets—color them with Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends, then adhere to card.

Over the weekend, I shared my stamp club's swap cards -- weren't they gorgeous?  Today, I have the card I made for the swap, using the Seaside Notions Stamp Set and Come Sail Away DSP:

Here are all the fun things I used on this card:


CARD: Rooted In Nature

Here's a great masculine card for all those wonderful men in your lives! 

AUGCLUB1

I used the tree image from Rooted in Nature.  Using a sponge dauber, apply Shaded Spruce ink to your tree.  Then, highlight the trunk and some of the branches using a Soft Suede Stampin' Write Marker.  Give it a huff, and stamp!  Fun, detailed tree without alot of fuss!

Here are all the fun products used on today's card:


CARD: Sailing Home

SAILINGHOME1

Measurements:

  • Night of Navy: 8 ½” x 5 ½”, 2 ½” x 3”
  • Sahara Sand: two pieces 2” x 3” for cutting with dies
  • Come Sail Away Designers Series Paper: 4” x 5 ¼

Instructions

    1. Fold Night of Navy cardstock in half to create card base, burnish along score line.
    2. Adhere Designer Paper to card front.
    3. Use Night of Navy Ink to stamp the Sailboat and words onto the Sahara Sand cardstock.
    4. Use the Smooth Sailing Dies with the Big Shot to cut out the Sailboat and the word shape.

CARD: Itty Bitty Birthdays

Good Morning!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  

Today's card was made for the Case This Sketch Challenge.  I set out to use some of the retiring designer paper -- I have quite the stash!   This is from the Best Route pack:

Cts318tammy

Simple was the word of the day!!  Colors came from the dsp itself:  Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch and Gray Granite.  The sentiment was stamped then cut out using the Big Shot and the retiring Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I cut the banner out twice -- once in Whisper White, and then again in Gray Granite for the "outline" piece!  The ribbon is tied around the middle piece--mini glue dots were used to hold the bow in place!

Here's the sketch used:

Enjoy!!  Have a great week!
