Water Color Hearts

January 15, 2018

I know this card design has been done a number of times since the Simon Says Stamp Best Ever Stamp set was released in the September 2017 card kit, but I had to make it too. Those hearts just scream to be heat embossed and water colored. I could decide which color of embossing powder to use, so I made three cards.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I began these cards by making some card bases form some water color paper. Then I stamped and embossed the sentiment and images on each card base.

I used my Crayola Fine Line Markers to water color in the images. Each card has the same colors in the same order. To help the white embossed hearts stand out more, I colored the background light blue.

I LOVE the Simon Says Stamp January 2018 card kit. It is perfect for Valentine’s Day cards. The mix of sentiment in the kit can also work for a variety of people which is very nice. This is the fifth card I made using the kit.

Extra Details:  I began this card by die cutting one of the patterned papers with a crossed stitched rectangle. I adhered the paper to a white card base.

I created a focal panel from a small scrap of another patterned paper. I layered a slightly larger black rectangle underneath the focal panel to help it stand out.

I created the sentiment using stamps from Simon Says Stamp’s Really Like You set. I die cut the ampersand from some patterned paper. I adhered everything to the focal panel.

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card by cutting the kraft card stock included in the kit into four 4.25 by 5.5 inch panels. I decided to create the four panels and not card bases so that I could get more use from the cardstock in the kit.

I took one panel and scored it every ¾ of an inch. I adhered strips of the patterned paper in-between the score line.

I used one of the cut aparts form the patterned paper pack for the sentiment. I matted it on another piece of patterned paper and adhered it with some foam tape.

I adhered the kraft panel to a white card base and the card was complete.

Kind Flowers

December 18, 2017

My Simon Says Stamp November 2017 Card Kit was lost in the mail.  Because of this, I haven’t been able to use it as much as I would have liked yet. But the holiday break is coming, and I hope to really play with it then.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I wanted to dry adding white embossing over a color pencil colored image. Once I had the stamp aligned in my MISTI, I decided to make two cards with slightly different colors.

I stamped the floral image on two strips of light grey paper. I used colored pencils to color in both images. Then I re-stamped the images with Versa Mark ink and white heat embossed them. I didn’t do a great job with the embossing, but the overall look is cool.

I created two card bases next; one blue and one purple. I used white pigment ink to stamp the individual floral images all over the card bases.

Then, I got out the die machine. I added some stitching to the edges of each grey panel. I also cut some scalloped borders for each card.

I stamped the rest of the sentiments with gray ink on small strips of white card stock. I adhered these strips to the stamped panels using foam tape.

Lastly, I adhered all the layers to the card bases.

Santa Card

Christmas Tags 3.17

December 17, 2017

I got my Simon Says Stamp’s December 2017 Card Kit in the mail this week. I don’t typically make a ton of Christmas cards, so I turned the kit into tags. In the end I made over 40 tags, I even used all the paper. That’s a first.

There are a few more tags, but my kiddos have already claimed them and tied them on packages.

Extra Details:  I began these tags by cutting the kraft and white card stock from the kit in to tags shapes. I was able to get 10 tags from each sheet of card stock. I added a sheet of white and kraft card stock from my own stash, so I had 40 tag bases when I was finished.

I used the cut apart patterned paper into the rectangles and strips. I used these to decorate my tags and add some sentiments. I also used some of the strips from the paper with the long strips.

I trimmed most of the rest sheets of patterned paper from the kit into 3 inch by 6 inch rectangles. My tag die is longer than three inches, but I liked the extra cardstock at the bottom of each tag. It offered a nice place to put a sentiment.  I was able to get 4 tags from each patterned paper. I adhered the patterned paper tags to the cardstock tags.

I stamped and colored the images from the stamp set on some white card stock. I used colored pencils to color everything. I fussy cut everything out and painted the edges black to hide any cutting errors.

Next up is the funniest part. I started decorating the tags. My kiddos helped me decided on a few of the tag layouts. I added the Doodlebug sprinkles to some of the tags for added dimension. I also used a few of the sequins included in the kit to decorate the trees.  I added sentiments from the stamp set where needed.

I cut the hole re-enforcers from the glitter cardstock included in the kit. I adhered these with liquid glue and then added some twine to finish off the tags.

Christmas Tags 3.16

December 3, 2017

It’s the time of year for Christmas tags! I used two different Christmas tree stamps for these tags. The stamps are from different companies, but have similar feels. I love the way they coordinate with each other.

Both types of tags

002

The Simon Says Stamp tags

001

The Lawn Fawn tags

Details

Extra Details: I began by cutting a full sheet of watercolor paper into six rectangles. I rounded the corners with a corner rounder. I stamped and clear embossed the trees and sentiments on each tag. I used Crayola Fine Line Markers and a water brush to add color to everything.

Lastly, I punched a hole in each tag and added some twine.
