Big Banner Birthday

Hi there.  Dropping in to share a super QCAS (Quick Clean and Simple) birthday card.

 

 

To start, a stitched rectangle was die cut from Neenah cardstock.  Stamped the banner followed by the bear with Memento black ink and then coloured with Copics.

 

 

Since the bear is running across with the banner in hand, motion marks were added with a grey marker to show movement.  Mounted the panel to a white top folding landscape card base and clear shimmer was added to the flags to finish.

 

 

Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day!

Hello Power Poppy

Hi there.  Just quickly sneaking in a simple card for a couple of challenges to round off August.  Today’s card is for the Power & Spark August Mix & Match and Addicted to Stamps and More #257 Make Your Mark challenges.  The mix & match challenge was to use two different sets.  I ended up using three NBUS Power Poppy sets.

 

 

And here’s my card.

 

 

The bouquet was stamped with Memento black ink on a stitched X-press It rectangle panel and coloured with Copics.

 

 

The butterflies were stamped on a scrap of X-press It paper, coloured with Copics as well and fussy cut out.  The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock.

 

 

The stitched panel was attached to a white top folding cardbase.  The sentiment and butterflies were popped up with foam adhesive.  Love sparkles so had to add clear shimmer to the flowers.  A few clear sequins finished off the card.  And that’s all there is to it.  Thank you for visiting. Enjoy your day or night, wherever you are.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Twofer One Birthdays

Hello there.  Today, I am sharing a couple of birthday cards I made to surprise a couple of crafty friends.  Loll had her birthday this past Tuesday and Darnellt’s is coming up this Sunday.  Unfortunately, Darnell won’t receive her card before this post, but she probably won’t see this anyway. 😉  And if she does, then surprise!  😂  So here are the cards.

 

 

Because the Kind Soul floral stamp is a fairly large image, I was able to stamp it once to get two cards.  I started with a 4-1/4 x 11″ piece of X-Press It paper and stamped the image with black Memento ink in the middle.

 

 

It was coloured with Copics and then cut in half to create two A2 pieces.  Each piece was then die cut with a Stitched Rectangle.  I forgot where I saw this idea, but I thought it was so clever how easy it is to create two cards.

 

 

The images were masked and Sahara Sand ink was blended with a Clarity brush through a Halftone stencil.  Happy birthday and friend were die cut from black cardstock and the happy birthday sentiment was white heat embossed on a black strip.

 

 

Had to give it some sparkle, so clear shimmer was added to the flowers and diecut sentiments.  For more sparkle, some sparkly sequins were added to finish.

Thank you for your visit.  Have a great day!

A Rosy Birthday

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  I’m just popping in to share a CAS rosy birthday card.

From a white A2 stitched rectangle, a smaller Stitched Rectangle was die cut in the center, A Clarity brush was used to blend Real Red ink through a rose stencil on that rectangle diecut.

The roses were then coloured with Copics for contrast and to make them pop. Clear shimmer was added to the roses for some sparkle and the rectangle was inlaid.

Next, happy was die cut from black cardstock.  It was mounted to a white scrap of cardstock and fussy cut with a white border.  It was adhered to a vellum strip and Glossy Accents was added for dimension.  While the Glossy Accents was still wet, the black white heat embossed sentiment strip was added.

Thank you for your visit.  Have a nice day!

Happy Birthday Mom

Hi everyone.  I needed a birthday card for my mom whose birthday is in a couple of days, so I made a CAS floral birthday card.  And I finally got up the nerve to try no-line colouring.  It was not as daunting as I had thought.  I just mailed it off today, so hopefully she will receuve it on time.

On a A2 stitched rectangle X-press It paper, the floral image was stamped in the upper right corner with London Fog Memento ink, then coloured with Copics (RV0000, RV63, RV66, RV69, YG01, YG03, YG17, YG67).  The sentiment and mom were black heat embossed with Versafine black ink and clear embossing powder.

For interest and dimension, a stitched rectangle was die cut in the center to create a frame.  The frame was popped up with foam adhesive on a white top folding card base and the die cut rectangle was inlaid back.

Clear shimmer on the flowers and rhinestones for the flower centers were added to finish.

 

Updated to add: I sent the card with a gift card and my mom called to say she loved it and that the card was enough without the gift card.  My mom is so selfless. 😂  Love her!

 

Thank you you for stopping by.  Have a great day!
