Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  We began by using some patterned paper form the Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit. We cut each paper into a two inch strip and adhered it to a coordinating card base.

I die cut three stitched circles from white card stock and stamped the hearts and sentiments on each circle. My daughter colored the hearts in using Crayola markers. When she was finished, she added some Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to each heart.

We adhered each circle with an action wobble. Lastly, we added some glitter pen detail along the edges of the patterned paper.

Flower Shaker Tag Card

September 24, 2017

I wanted to play with the Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit today. I love the shaker tags that were included in the kit. I received a flower shaped tag instead of a balloon in my kit.

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card with the flower tag. I ink blended some Distress Inks on the tag. I flicked some water on the inks to create some fun water drops. I also added a light pink Distress Ink to the inside of the tag. I filled the shaker pocket with some beads and sequins from my stash. Then I glued the tag closed. I added some iridescent twine to the top of the tag.

Next, I created a light pink card base. I wanted to use some of the patterned paper included in the kit. I found a design that I liked and trimmed it to an inch and a half. I added some thin strips purple paper to the edges to help the paper stand out against the pink card base. I adhered the strips to the card base.

I adhered the shaker tag to the card base. Then, I stamped the sentiment in purple ink. As a finishing touch, I added some stars and hearts that I die cut from some silver glitter paper and holographic paper.

Striped Birthday Card

September 24, 2017

I loved the Birthday Blues card I made so much that I wanted to try another version of it. This time I used more feminine colors. I also put the pattern at a diagonal for more interest.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card with a panel of white card stock. I used five colors of ink to stamp the images on the panel. I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle when I was finished stamping. I adhered the panel to a pink card base with foam tape. Lastly, I added some clear Wink of Stella for some sparkle and shine.

Resist Birthday Cards

September 24, 2017

My husband’s best friends’ birthday was last week. My kiddos made him some birthday cards. They had such a good time playing with water coloring and resists.

Orange Card

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold and a Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  We began these cards with panels of water color paper that I had die cut with a stitched rectangle die. Each kiddo decided on their card design and I used Versa Mark and white heat embossing powder to create the designs.

We used Distress Ink as water colors. I taped the panels down first. Then the kiddos painted on some clear clean water on their panels and began dropping in colors. We let the first layers of color dry while we had dinner. Then we added a second layer of color. After the second layer was dry, we added some splatters of ink.

Once the splatters were dry, we adhered each panel to a coordinating card base with foam tape. The kiddos were so please with their creations.

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card with a white card base. I used Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink and a mini ink blending tool to add color to the bottom right corner. I also flicked some of the same ink of the card base for interest.

I stamped the sentiment in black ink and added the stickers. They are perfect to star in this clean and simple card.

I stamped the happy birthday sentiment in an aqua colored ink on the inside of the card. I added the rest of the sentiment in black ink.
