Ice Cream Birthday Card

I decided to make a few Birthday Cards for my stash and here is what I came up with..

 I decided to use a fun but simple embossing folder to add some texture to the back of this card.

The panel is sized to 4 by 5 1/4 inches and the same color as the top folding A2 sized card base.

Its 110 pound card stock from Micheal's
 I am using my Hampton Art Stamp Perfect Tool to do my stamping.

I used an oval die to cut out some White heavy weight card stock.
 I used Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere the embossed panel to the card base and dimensional adhesive to the oval.
 Dimensional adhesive to pop up the ice cream.

Ink from Stampin UP in the colors, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and Calypso Coral.

I used Peek a Boo Peach for the card stock to the top of the ice cream and Soft Sky for the spoon.
Finished card

I used some white twine to make a bow and a little dab of Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere the bow.

I used the Cool Treats stamp and dies for my card.

Marbled Thank You

I was watching old You Tube videos and came across a card from some one I follow and wanted to re create with what I had on hand and turn it into a thank you card.

Here is her card, CLICK HERE.

 I am using Emerald Envy ink and card stock from Stampin Up along with their Marbled back ground stamp.
 I am using Hampton Art Stamp Perfect Tool too help keep the stamp in one place and a big block to ink the card stock evenly.
 Using a thank you stamp from Daisy Delight.

Along with the Hampton Art Stamp Tool.
 I decided to add some stamping to the back edge of the envelope.
Using a Micheal's doily and some adhesive tape runner to adhere the thank you sentiment strip to the doily.

I trimmed away the excess after.
Some Pretty Pink Posh sequins adhere using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue and a Quick Stick.

The color of the sequins is Charcoal.

Easter Card #1 of 2018

I searched Easter Cards and found this one and decided to go threw my stash and recreated it with the supplies I had on hand.

 I am using some Retired My Favorite Things Oval dies to cut out my shapes.
 I am using Stampin Up ink and card stock in Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake ( card stock ) Early Espresso and Pretty in Pink ( ink ).
 I have the biggest oval centered on the bottom of my craft mat.

I cut a oval in half and added Stampin dimensionals to the bottom to add the feet.
 I turned a Martha Stewert Balloon punch into a egg just by cutting off the tip.

Some Retired DSP from Stampin Up for the Easter Eggs.
 I added more Stampin dimensionals, one behind the egg and two next to them, I will add the arms to the sides.

I used a mini dimensional for the heart that I flipped up side down to make a nose.
I cut off the excess and do not forget to ink the edges after you cut them.
 The ovals for the ears are the same size as the feet and the ovals for the inside of the ears are the same size for the hands.

Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere them.

I then flipped over and trimmed off the bottom.
Here some stamps from my stash to add to the back and front of the envelope and back and inside of the card.

 I used some fringe scissors to make the whiskars.
 Added a little dollip of Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to the scrap and added it to the backs of the whiskars to place under the nose.
I trimmed off some of the whiskars.
 Enamel dots from my stash for the eyes.
Two of the Easter Bunny's.

Two more of the Easter Bunny's.

My Monthly Hero Kit 2/2018 Card #1

I decided to recreate a card I saw on the My Monthly Hero Blog post about this kit.

Would you like to see that card, CLICK HERE.

Except I did not want to quite cut into that beautiful wood grain card stock that was included in the kit so I went threw my embossing folders and found a Stampin Up wood grain folder that also gives a deeper impression versus regular embossing folders.

 I am using a Retired color called Tip Top Taupe.

Cut to the exact card fron 5 1/2 by 4 1/4.

With this embossing folder you only need one cutting plate because its thicker then the traditional folders.
 I am also using some Retired heart framelit dies and my no longer being made Hampton Art Stamp Perfect Tool.

I am just seeing how the sentiment and the leaf stamp will fit inside the heart.
 Using the cordinating Tip Top Taupe ink to stamp.

Which I stamped twice since I was using a stamp positioning tool.

Again using the heart die to line things up this time adding the bird to the leaf stem.
 I just used a small stamp block to stamp the music notes.

I still had to double stamp but it was easy to stamp right over because I can see threw the stamp.
 I am using some 110 pound white card stock as my base and Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere the embossed panel to the card front.

 Choose some enamel dots from my stash.
One of Three finished cards

 Three different shade of enamel dots.

You can see the impression of the embossing folder.
 Close up.

I added dimension with Stampin Up dimensionals.
 Inside of the card, the sentiment is stamped full strength and the bottom images are stamped off once on scratch paper.
Same with the back of the card.
 Front of the envelope.
Back of the envelope

First Valentine of 2018

Here is a Piggy Valentine I made that would be perfect for a lunch box addition for you little ones.

I got the idea from May May on You Tube. Click Here for the inspiration.

 Take a full sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 inch card stock and cut in half.

Then cut in half again.

You will get four Valentines.
 Score at 2 3/4  inch on the 5 1/2 inch side.
 Flip it over and make a pencil mark at 2 1/8, just a small one.
 Add the paper to your trimmer and line up with the score line and the pencil mark.
 Cut and flip over and do the same on the other side.
 I am using a heart punch for the ears, and the triangle scraps work perfectly to cut out all the ears I need.
 I thought about using an oval for the nose but then I found this scallop oval and knew I wanted that.
 This is a three circle punch I found at Hobby Lobby one day and just love it for ears and eyes.
 I used a scrap Heavy Weight black for the nostriles.

I am using scrap Heavy Weight White for the sentiment.

I cut my stamp and it did not cry, now I can use it the way I want.
 I used Tombow Mono Liquid Glue and only on the edges.

I also rounded with 1/4 inch punch the point.
 A block on top just tell it dries, it does not take long.
Decided to ink the edges with the same ink as the card stock.
 Tombow Mono Liquid Glue and dimensionals to the nose.
Google Eyes, I added the ears to the back.

Stamped the inside too

And the back, and you can see how I glue the ears
