Feminine Simple Stamping Birthday Card - Layered With Kindness

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I wanted to share with you the feminine version of the card that I shared with you yesterday.  For today's version of this card I used the Layered with Kindness Stamp Set for all the images and the sentiment.  Create quick tags and greeting cards with graceful greetings from the Layered with Kindness Stamp Set. Stamp flowers and leaves for a finishing touch. This stamp set is also available in French. This is a Distinktive** stamp set; it has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images. **Patent pending  If you missed my card yesterday you can click here to view it.  Here's a look at my card for today.


I used the images from the stamp set to stamp my piece of whisper white cardstock to create my own dsp as I did with the card yesterday.  To make it a more feminine card I changed the stamp set, and the colors.  I used So Saffron, Melon Mambo, and Granny Apple Green inks on my card.


I took the stamped background and added it to a piece of Granny Apple Green Cardstock and then added the card front to a Melon Mambo Card base cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I then stamped my sentiment onto a piece of whisper white cardstock in Melon Mambo ink.  I used the Lovely Label punch to punch it and a piece of So Saffron Cardstock.  I cut the So Saffron one in half and added it behind the sentiment.  I then added two pieces of the Granny Apple Green Ribbon to the front and added the sentiment on top.  To finish the card I add some of the Melon Mambo Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the front.  


Thanks for dropping by I hope that you have enjoyed my card and you will give it a try.  If you need any of the supplies you have seen today you can pick them up in my online store 24/7.

Fall Leaves and Plaid- Gather Together Stampin 'Up! #PCC357

Hello and welcome to my blog!  This week the Paper Craft Crew's weekly challenge is a Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  From the challenge image I had to go with sponging and fall as two of the main elements for my card today.   I have a love of all the colors in Fall and actually my inspiration for my projects came from my very own front door.  I pulled inspiration from the Fall wreath that we have hanging.  Here's a look at my card.


Here's the inspiration image for this weeks challenge.  You can play along just like the game of tic tac toe we played as kids.  I went with the bottom row straight across.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started off my card with a piece of Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock cut at (You guessed it 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2).  I used post it tape and my grid paper to mask off lines in different colors in one direction so that I could use my sponge daubers and create the ink blended plaid background.  Once I had all the lines in different sizes going in one direction I came back and did it again going to opposite way to create the plaid.  I used Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, and Crushed Curry Inks for this.  
I then stamped three leaves from Gather Together Stamp set and colored them with my colored pencils.  I used a little oil painting solvent to blend the color pencils you can also use baby oil.  I then let that dry and cut them out using the matching die.  While I was die cutting I used the Hand letter Prose dies and cut out the word Fall from some so saffron cardstock.   So while I still had my die cutting machine out I cut out the largest stitched nested label die from a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and sponged around the edge with some Crumb Cake ink.  
Once everything was cut out I popped up the large stitched nested label on my card and cut off a little that was hanging off the side of the card front.  I then added one of the leaves popped up on Stampin' dimensionals and the letters that spelled out Fall.  I then tucked the other two leaves under this.  To finish off the card I added a double bow made with the Cajun Craze Linen thread from the holiday catalog Come Gather Ribbon Combo Pack and added a few rhinestones I colored using my dark Cajun Craze stampin' blend.  
Thanks for dropping by I hope that you like my card today, and that you will give making your own plaid background a try.  If you don't you can get the Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper for your Holiday crafting in my online store.
