Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Here’s a Ribbon of Courage for Remarkable You

By Debbie Mageed, Remarkable You, Ribbon of Courage, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Birthday, Autumn, Embossing Paste, Stampin Up

I hope you like my card today! I did something quite unusual, can you guess what I did? Keep reading to see how I made that background. I have lots of birthdays coming up soon and I am fresh out of birthday cards. YIKES! I wanted to color with my brand new Stampin’ Blends, so I picked Remarkable You for a pretty floral image. The sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and the inside sentiment is from a stamp set that I just got, Ribbon of Courage.

  • I stamped the beautiful flower with Memento Black ink and started coloring with my new alcohol markers, Stampin’ Blends, using the Pumpkin Pie light and medium shades. Once dry, I added the Bronze marker at the base of the stems and topped the entire petal with Clear Wink of Stella.
  • Wine Label Framelits from Gina Marie Designs cut the image out. I really like the outline it adds as well!
  • My surprise for you is how I made the glittery background. I was organizing my embossing station and found several containers of glitter. I’m sure you are aware of the mess that glitter makes so I doubt I have ever used it. I remembered seeing a video (sure wish I could remember where!) not too long ago where the crafter dumped her entire container of glitter into an entire container of embossing paste. Isn’t that a cool idea?? The glitter will not fall off the card at all because it is dried into the embossing paste. Love it!! I bet you know what I am stocking up on now!
  • Once the glittery embossing paste was stenciled with the mask from the Seasonal Decorative Masks, I layered it onto Basic Black cardstock.
  • The Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon was secured to the card, then cut a small piece of the mini sequin trim and stapled it to the background layer. A Pumpkin Pie ribbon was made into a bow and adhered on top of the sequin trim. The Finishing Touch is a few black rhinestones placed around the flower.
  • INSIDE: The sentiment was stamped in Memento black ink then the leaves as well. They were colored with the new Old Olive alcohol markers and then adhered to the card base.

A Garden in Bloom for a Special Friend and Crafters Cafe

By Debbie Mageed, Garden in Bloom, Fun Fold, Shaped Card, Friendship, Stampin Up

 

I hope you all got to see the lovely submissions for our Die Challenge at Crafters Café! They were so creative! We are now onto our next challenge and this one is great! We would love to see you make a card in a different shape! I decided to make an easel card from the Floral Frames Framelits, which are retired unfortunately but not from my craft room stash! Pairing the digital image  Vintage Couture from DigiStamps 4 Joy with Garden in Bloom, I made a monochromatic card that hopefully looks vintage like the dress. I haven’t made a card like this before so look forward to seeing what you make with it!

It’s All in the DetailsBy Debbie Mageed, Garden in Bloom, Fun Fold, Shaped Card, Friendship, Stampin Up
  • This card started by making the easel card base in Very Vanilla cardstock. There are many tutorials available to make shaped easel cards. The front panel was dry embossed with the Close to my Heart Damask embossing folder. All edges were sponged with Sahara Sand ink.
  • Printing the dress image onto Very Vanilla cardstock, I then colored it to my satisfaction with copic markers. Then, it was fussy cut out, sponged with Sahara Sand ink and set aside for the time being.
  • On the smaller Floral Framelit, I used tinted Embossing Paste and spread it out with the Pattern Party Decorative Mask. No expertise is needed with this – just go for it! It was then adhered to the card front.
  • The sentiment on the front was stamped in Sahara Sand and cropped with the smaller die from Floral Frames Framelits, and sponged with Sahara Sand ink.
  • The card base was all adhered together, then the dress adhered.
  • INSIDE: the sentiments were stamped and cropped with punches. The sentiment on the bottom of the card needed to be popped up with dimensionals to hold the card front up when on display.
  • FINISHING TOUCH: The triple bow was made from Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim and attached with glue. Basic pearls was placed on the card and dress.
