Simon Says Stamp | August 2018 card kit – Mandy’s Flowers – Card idea 6

Hi friends, we have been using several gorgeous floral images from Simon Says Stamp Mandy’s Flowers cards for last few days. Today I will show you how you can use the sentiment stamps with several patterned papers to make a card. And yes, you can change a little bit here and there to make good use of all those pretty scraps in your stash. I wanted to use the pretty papers from the card kit because they were so lovely. But I could not decide on just a few ones, so I went with several of them. From each of …

Simon Says Stamp | August 2018 card kit – Mandy’s Flowers – Card idea 5

Hi friends, are you ready for one more card using Simon Says Stamp August 2018 card kit – Mandy’s Flowers stamp set? I hope you are :-) {Check out other ideas for this stamp set / card kit here.} Similar card to this one here, except I layered this with a black cardstock piece which I had dry embossed with Darice Scroll Frame embossing folder. And for watercoloring, I used Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, Bundled Sage and Mermaid Lagoon. Trying to keep it really simple today, so not getting into details. Shoot me any questions you might have and I will …

Simon Says Stamp | August 2018 card kit – Mandy’s Flowers – Card idea 4

Hi friends, we are still celebrating with SSS Mandy’s Flowers stamp set over here. You can check out previous card ideas here. Today’s card is a “flip” card – it uses a fun fold to make the front open with a flip. I started by using one ready made card base. On the front side of this one, I partially die cut a circle to create the circular flap. I made a fold in between the front side of the card and lined up the half part of my circle die to that line. I placed my top cutting plate …

Thank you card series – 10 (and a bonus)

Thank you card

Hi friends, thank you for sticking with me through all those website issues. I am hoping they are behind us now. I have the last card in this series to share with you all today (and also a bonus one which I forgot to share with card #8) Here’s the card for today. Again this was a guy-card, so I kept it completely bling-free. :-O The die cutting technique used in this card was previously detailed out here. This creates a gatefold opening for the card. I used it in landscape mode instead of portrait today. After the main card …

Thank you card

Hello friends, here is the next card in thank you card series. You can check out all the past posts here. This one is quite similar to the other cards – I used one main element from Pebbles Inc. Jen Hadfield accent stickers from Heart of Home collection. This came in the November 2017 card kit from Simon Says Stamp. I used foam tape to mount it on a card made with dark chocolate card stock again from SSS, same kit. I also die cut the word ‘thanks’ from gold foiled cardstock using the ‘thanks’ die from Hero Arts. Finally a …

Thank you card series – 7

Thank you card

Hello friends, we are still doing the thank-you card series over here. You can check out all the past posts here. This is a really simple card – I foam mounted the owl chip in the middle and stamped two sentiments – ‘thanks’ & ‘i appreciate all that you do’. I did use MISTI for the sentiments so I could double stamp them. For ‘thanks’ I used Black Archival ink and for the other sentiment, I used Hero Arts Burgundy ink. Again this was a card for one of my colleagues at work, so no bling :-) Enjoy! Supplies List …

Thank you card

One more simple thank you card today, my dear friends.  I used the same ‘thanks’ die from Hero Arts with some textured green cardstock. I combined it with more chips from the same Pebbles Harvest collection. The peas and the pod were together in a single chip, I fussy cut it out and separated the two so I could adhere it separately on my card. Just to make play on words with all the bunch of vegetables, I stamped ‘a bunch’ right under the ‘thanks’ die cut using Hero Arts Burgundy color. Easy-peasy.. ‘Pea’-sy, get it? ;-) Supplies List For …

Thank you card

Okay, next card in the series of Thank-you cards is here. Ready for it? I prepared 4 die cuts here – two ‘thanks’ words and two speech bubbles. I adhered the two ‘thanks’ words together using mod podge. Yes, this has become my go-to liquid glue these days. I am using a fine tip glue applicator in which I have filled mod podge and it is working like a charm for such small die cuts, sequins and other embellishments. I adhered the two speech bubbles using foam tape and attached the thanks words on top using (again) mod podge.  Next …

Thank you card

Hello friends, ready for the next Thank-You card? This one is a little more elaborate and involved. But so beautiful that the effort is worth it :-) For this card, first of all I did the die cutting part – I die cut the flower from a patterned paper which had gold foiled circles on it. I taped my die in such a way that the center of the flower was on the gold circle. I also die cut the matching leaf from another green-ish patterned paper.  Next I die cut a stitched rectangle from another patterned paper and to give …

Thank you card series – 3

Hi friends, sometimes a single sticker or a single chip from an ephemera is so beautiful that you can build the whole card around that one focal point. That is exactly what happened with today’s card: I used a beautiful wood-grain card base for my background. Since this is such a textured background, I used MISTI to stamp part of my sentiment ‘i appreciate all you do’. I used Hero Arts Burgundy ink to stamp this part. Using an orange plaid patterned paper from my stash, I die cut the word ‘thanks’ – both this die as well as the …

Thank you 2a

Hello friends, ready for the second ‘Thank you’ card? Here you go.  For this one, I used one of the pre-made die cuts from the Pebbles Harvest collection. To go along with it, I created several of my own embellishments. I had a strip of orange-checked patterned papers left over from another project. I die cut a scalloped border at the bottom of it. Also I die cut the word ‘thanks’ using green and white scrap textured cardstocks. I layered the orange banner and the berries dit cut with foam tape. For the two ‘thanks’ I used liquid glue and …

Thank you card series – 1

Hello Friends! So glad to have you here :-) Today we are starting a series of thank you cards. To be honest, I made all these during thanksgiving time (so most of them have fall themed colors), but these will be great thank-you cards for any time of the year. So I decided to go ahead and share them here anyways. So here’s the first card. I wanted to make this for a guy – a colleague at work. So one of my rare cards which are without bling ;-) I started by using a Tim Holtz motif resist paper …
