Flowers for Mother

Mothers love to get flowers for Mother’s day so this card is perfect.  She’ll get a special note from you and beautiful flowers that won’t die.

Mother's Day Flower Card

This card is extra special because it has a fun hidden note behind the flowers.  The pot is actually folded in 1/2 and you can pull the top flowers out to revel a hidden message just for Mom.

Mother's Day Flower Card with tag out

I absolutely love the detail and dimension in this card don’t you?  It’s so easy to achieve with the bone folder.  Simply hold the edge of the bone folder on the center of the inside of flower.  Press your finger on the other side of the flower against the bone folder and pull.  This will help to softly curl the paper much like you curl ribbon with scissors for a balloon.  This is also a great effect for curling tags.  They are finished off with a tiny pearl in the center.

Mother's Day Flower Card Close Up

Be watching for the cute matching box that we made for club.  Just a quick reminder two of the colors on this project are the retiring in-colors: Primrose Petals & Raspberry Ripple.  They will be gone soon so be sure to get yours before they are gone.

Let is Snow Card

20140206_081143

This is what I woke up to this morning.  Almost a foot of snow and still snowing.  Just in case you are wondering here in Northern Utah the kids still went to school.  I’ve heard it takes 2 feet to get a snow day.

20140206_081136

Yes clearing off the card to get to work was lots of fun.  Thankfully I get to stay home in my nice warm house since it’s my day off.  Hopefully I don’t have to go rescue my husband.  He took the car over the mountain so we shall see.

20140206_081207

You can see a little better how much snow there is on the untouched swing set.

So in light of all the snow I thought that my Let is Snow card would be the perfect throw back Thursday.  This is another card that I created for Artisan a couple years ago, but apparently never shared.

Let it Snow Card - Front

So this is the front of the card.  This card is very unique and different.  Personally I love it.  So The card base is just a regular card.  I can’t remember if it opened or not, but I think it did so you could write a message inside.  The blue background is a fun technique.  I used the white glossy paper that I wish we still sold.  I took a baby wipe and put three dots of reinker in different colors going across the wipe then I wiped it on the glossy cardstock to give it kind of a rainbow look.  Once that was dry I inked my snowflake with versamark and stamped my snowflakes then embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I then used a dark blue reinker and a sponge to sponge over the top so the snowflakes were the only think to show the lighter colors.  The embossing powder resists the ink so you can see the colors underneath.

Let it Snow card- Layers

This card has some fun layers to it.  I folded a white paper.  I believe that it’s a 4 1/4 tall by 11 scored at 2 3/4 on each side and 5 1/2.  Then folded accordion style.  I attached a piece of sticky strip along the side where it was being attached and covered it with the Silver Glass Glitter.  This isn’t the best picture, but it gives you an idea of how the card folds up.

Let it Snow card- opening

So this the the card as it’s opening up. Of course the front is a darling picture of my son playing in the snow.  I used a mini clip to hold it shut when you aren’t opening it.

Let it Snow Card- Partial open

As it starts to unfold you can start to see the magic int he card.  I used the Snow Much Fun set that is now retired to create a fun winter seen.

Let is Snow card- Opened

Here’s the finished card all opened.  My favorite part is the snowflakes that are attached to some bakers twine.  The snow men are stamped and embossed with black embossing powder before they are colored.  It’s kind of hard to see but I also used  some of the Dazzling Details on the snow ball and sides of the snowmen to make them sparkle.  The snow is stamped in white and embossed with white embossing powder to make it pop.

Hopefully I’ve inspired you to think outside of the box a bit.  Here’s one more piece of inspiration.  This is a wall hang I made using the same technique that I used on the background of my card.

Let it Snow wall hang

I used the scallop square die and the alphabet die to cut out the background and the letters.  Both were cut with chipboard and covered in white cardstock.  I hang this one up every year.  I still love it.

On the 8th day of Christmas . . .

The Stampin’ Santa gave to you a snowflake candle luminary.

I received this item as a Convention swap.  I just had to make more.  I used them for Teacher’s gifts.  We filled them with candy and gave them the candle so they could turn it into a luminary.

It’s made with the Fancy Favor Big Shot die.  The snowflakes are rolled on with versa mark then I embossed them with the iridescent ice embossing powder.  I punched out a snowflake on each side and covered it with White Vellum.  They are finished off with the cute little “Ready Set Snow” stamp (from Best Wishes & More) on the front punched out with the word window punch and layered on the modern label punch.  They were quick and easy to make.  I love that they can be used for the whole winter season.

Remember that I have the Big Shot on sale in my 12 Days of Christmas.  Get it now and start having fun all year.

This fun project is also one of the ones you can get for FREE when you place a $50.00 order.

On the 6th day of Christmas . . .

The Stampin’ Santa gave to you a really fun Candy Gift Box.

So I saw this idea on my friend Patty’s blog and just had to try it.  It’s made with our thick window sheets.  I simply cut out the box using our fancy favor’s box die and my Big Shot.  Then  I I embossed it with the Petals-A-Plenty Impressions Folder from the Holiday Mini.

The only trick is you need to cut your box now too 11″ instead of 12″.  Then you can emboss from each end (you roll it through twice.)

Can I just say I love my Big Shot.  Remember there are lots of great dies on sale right now.  Even if you don’t have the Big Shot yet.  You could start getting your dies and have all the cute ones when you get your Big Shot.  You could even use my Lay-a-Way program.

April Club- Just Beachy

April '09 FishThis post is a little late, but I thought you would like to see the fun projects we did for club in April.  I featured the fun Just Beachy set from the mini catalog and showed them how to do the cracked Glass technique.  I love this technique it looks so cool and is actually really easy to do.I got this fun idea from Kelly.  You can check out her blog here:   http://stampinparadise.blogspot.com.  I changed it a bit. 

 

 

April '09 Fish Close UpI thought if you are really different than maybe you would be a different color.  I don’t know if you noticed it but this fish is the only one in the set that goes the other way.  Here is a close up of the cracked glass.

April '09 BeachHere is the scrapbook page that I came up with using the card as my inspiration.  I love how simple it is, but it has just a fun summer feel.  We colored the fish with the watercolor wonder crayons and a aqua painter.

April '09 B-dayThis is the second card that my card group made.  I totally cased it from a blog, I tried to find it again so I could tell you who, but I couldn’t.  I changed the saying in the center, but the rest is basically like hers.  I thought it was a really cute card.  The size is actually 5×5 go go in our 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 envelops.  The fish are punched out with the 1 1/4″ Square Punch and then sponged with the pacific point.

 

April '09 B-day InsideWe stamped Happy Birthday from the $10.00 and under page on the inside.  Of course we used Whisper White craft in so that it would show up.

 

Matchbox Thank You BoxesSince I had also just got the Matchbox die of course we had to try that out as well.  Here is our fun projects using the match box die and the designer series paper from the mini catalog Walk in the Park.
