Thanks card


These are two cards I made using the SU Sale-a-bration For Being You set.  Paper is Whisper White, Old Olive, and Echo Park Traveler paper.  The "thanks" is stamped in Versamark and black embossing powder.  Inks include Jet Black Staz-On and Lost Lagoon.  I also used a dollar alphabet set to add to the sentiment.  Last touch is some gemstones on the second card.  Quick and easy cards...the longest part was cutting out the letters and it took almost no time to figure out a pattern to make it go faster.  Thanks for looking!  April

Disney Dream fish extender tag

So my husband is putting together mini lego kits for one of our fish extender gifts.  These are the tags I made for him to tie on the bags.
I cut the base in Whisper White from Cricut's Tags, Bags, Boxes & More.  I cut the Mickey icons in Basic Black from the Mickey Font cartridge.  The "Disney" is stamped in Blazing Red Staz-On using the Mickey & Friends acrylic stamp set.  The Dream die cut is cut from Brilliant Blue using a die from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I used an alphabet stamp set from Studio G (found in the dollar bin at Michaels) to finish the title.  Last is a star punched from silver glimmer paper.  I finished the tags with white gel pen accents.  Thanks for looking!  April

Loads of Anniversary Love card

My person and her hubby are celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary.  I wanted to make a card that popped but kept hitting a wall.  Finally it dawned on me that they now have a pop-up trailer so I dug out the Loads of Love and Loads of Fun sets.
The base is Whisper White with layers of Whisper White cut from the Top Note Die.  First, I made a mask for the lower portion of the Top Note piece by tearing the edge off two post-it notes.  I used Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder, and Night of Navy to ink the sky.  I stamped the truck and trailer on Whisper White in Jet Black Staz-On.  I stamped the man, then masked him to stamp the woman.  They are colored in with simple watercolor markers.  The sentiment is from B.Y.O.P. stamp set and stamped in Jet Black Staz-On.  The sky has stars made by using micro glue dots and a glue pen, then coated with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  The man and woman were glued in place, then the truck and trailer were added on dimensionals.  Last, I cut the 20 from white glimmer paper using Tim Holtz alterations distress alphabet, before placing in truck bed.  Thanks for looking!  April

Father's Day gift card envelope

So I finally got to use the Stampin' Up B.Y.O.P. set for my father-in-law's treat.   I used papers from Echo Park and some kraft and white scraps.  Ink is Jet Black Staz-On.  I used the number 1 measurement on the Martha Stewart score board with the envelope insert.  It was very quick and easy.  Thanks for looking!  April

Merry Wishes Christmas card

I love layers upon layers but they kill on shipping cost.  Every year it is a challenge for me to come up with a simple and fast to make card that ships cheap (or as cheap as any mailing is today).  I decided to use a white base card and the Stampin Up Seasonally Scattered "merry" stamp in Marina Mist.  I cut strips of Night of Navy about 1/2" x 2 2/3" and used the bitty banner punch to make the end notches.  I used the "christmas" from Endless Wishes in Versamark and silver embossing powder.  I used a couple of gemstones to accent the snowflakes and clear stardust gel pen for final accents.
inside card
Inside, I used Marina Mist to stamp the medium Endless Wishes snowflake and Night of Navy for the sentiment using stamps from Endless Wishes and Endless Birthday Wishes.  I also stamped the flake on the envelopes.
I ended up with 50 cards in just a couple of hours.  Thanks for looking!  April
