Country Home Thanksgiving Card for the Sisterhood of Crafters

 

The Sisterhood of Crafters has a new challenge using this Mood Board. What do you see in this photo that makes you want to make a card?? I chose the colors and the words “Give Thanks” to make a Thanksgiving card for my family. This card is using the Country Home stamp set, which is wonderful for Thanksgiving, and pairing it with a die that I had purchased a year ago and never used. Isn’t it beautiful??

My Secrets to Making This Country Home Project

  • Isn’t the background cool? I absolutely love the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint!! I applied the paint with a dauber to the Very Vanilla cardstock after running it through the Big Shot in the Quilt Top embossing folder. I’m no expert with it yet, but I can guarantee you that there’s “no experience needed” to have fun with this shimmer paint! The photo can’t show the lovely bling the paint has added, but it’s very festive IRL.
  • The flowers and vase stamp was stamped in Cajun Craze, then I used a blender pen to gently pull the ink from the outlines to add a hint of color to the image.
  • The 1/4″ copper trim was tied into a bow and only the loops were pulled apart to add a little more fullness.

Broadway Bound Happy Birthday Cards for the Q is for Quad Alphabet Challenge

We have a great challenge for you at the Alphabet Challenge! Lesley is our host and has chosen “Quad” Cards. If you need an interpretation for that term, (it really just means 4 of anything), you can see all of the wonderful inspiration cards over there. I thought of another “Q” – Quilts! My cards for you today show the Quilted Stack and Cut technique to make cards that are so much fun and really quite easy.

My Secrets to Making These Happy Birthday Projects

  • I have made these Quilt Stack and Cut cards before  – a Wreath card HERE and Holiday cards HERE . This time the cards are for birthdays so you can make a bunch and have them ready to go whenever you need them.
  • These cards have different dimensions than the A2 cards made previously. The first two above have the following dimensions:
    • Card Base: 6 1/4″ x 9″ Cardstock, scored at 4 1/2″.
    • Cardstock Layer: 4 1/4″ x 6″. Secret: I find it much easier to adhere the DSP to the cardstock and then cut 😉
    • DSP: Take the coordinating DSP that you want to use and cut to 4″ x 5 3/4″. Then, cut them again into quarters. Mine were cut at the 2 1/2″ mark on the 4″ side and 4″ on the other. Secret: You can also cut them at angles asymmetrically (such as “hills and valleys”) – just cut them together so they will all be the same. Make sure that the side of the DSP you want to use is on top before you cut!
    • The Black & Gold Card is basically the same except the card base is larger: 7″ x 10″ and scored at 5″. Then, a layer of Whisper White was added before the panel was adhered.
  • Once you have your DSP cut, start playing with them and mix ’em up. Don’t forget DSP has TWO sides!
  • After you’re satisfied and have adhered them onto the cardstock layer, start the fun part – add your sentiments, embellishments, etc.

There’s Labels to Love for a Thanksgiving Card with Cardz 4 Galz

It’s time for a new challenge over at Cardz 4 Galz – “Pumpkins” – which is such a timely theme this time of year, don’t you think? I remembered a thinlit that I bought at the end of the holiday catalog season last year and hadn’t used it, Patterned Pumpkins. That catalog also had a very pretty Autumn designer paper, Painted Autumn and thought it was wonderful for this card! Labels to Love stamp set is a very versatile holiday stamp set and is still available in the Annual Catalog.

 

Thanksgiving Card Featuring #LabelsToLove, #PatternedPumpkinsThinlits, #StitchedSeasons, #Thanksgiving, #Holiday, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp

 

My Secrets to Making This Labels to Love Project

  • Using some retired cardstock, ink and DSP made this card bright and cheerful for Thanksgiving!
  • I cut the pumpkin out twice, once in Tangerine Tango and another in Peekabo Peach and layered them together.

Great Stamp Set that is so versatile for the holidays! It also coordinates with the Everyday Label Punch – LOVE that!

Pretty Botanical Bliss Card for Just Because Challenge at the Stinkin’ Inkers

It’s November?! That can only mean one thing – time for a new challenge at Stinkin’ Inkers! The challenge is perfect – “Just Because – Create a card or project for a friend, anniversary, wedding, etc.” I absolutely love making cards that can be used for any occasion and had just gotten the beautiful Botanical Bliss stamp set and its coordinating dies, Botanical Tags Thinlits. What better time to use it!

Delicate Friendship Card Featuring #BotanicalBliss, #BotanicalTags, #TinTile, #AllOccasion, #JustBecause, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp

 

My Secrets to Making This Botanical Bliss Project

  • My Secret to making this card was using Frosted White Shimmer Paint all over the Tranquil Textures DSP. I lightly rubbed it over the DSP with a Dauber Sponge and let it dry. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!
  • The tag was made by first cutting out the 2 1/2′ x 6″ Night of Navy cardstock with the tag from Botanical Tags, carefully cutting it down to 2″ with my Stampin’ Trimmer, then flagging the end with the Banner Triple Punch.
  • White Velvet Paper was cut with flower thinlit, then adhered to the DSP with Tombow Glue that was dabbed on with a Stampin’ Sponge.
