Springtime Foils for Saturday Anything Goes Series

Hi all – for the first project of our Saturday Anything Goes series I demonstrated how to create a cute box to hold our slim note cards and envelopes using the new Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series paper (a freebie with $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration).  If you missed the Facebook live this afternoon, here is a link to the YouTube video.  Hope you enjoy it and will join us next Saturday for the next tutorial.  If you would like to order the supplies to make this project, please click the Shop Now button in the upper right or click here

Have a great rest of your weekend!

Springtime Foils – Adore You

My husband is an incurable romantic – how lucky am I?  While I have made him masculine cards I know how much he loves the rich colors that can be found in flowers.  So when I saw the new Sale-Bration Springtime Foils DSP I knew right away there was a card in it for him.  And, I got to use the Blends, so who can beat that?

adore you w

I started with a card base of Melon Mambo cardstock (115320) cut 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″ and set it aside.  Next, I just couldn’t wait to get out the Stampin’ Blends (147475) and have some fun coloring.  I cut a 3-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the gorgeous rose-patterned Springtime Foils Specialty DSP (147193)  and used Calypso Coral light and dark Stampin’ Blends (144045) to color in the roses.  I also used Old Olive light and dark Stampin’ Blends (144597) to color in the leaves.  Very easy and just look at how rich and gorgeous they look against the gold foiling.

I am still having a love affair (shh, don’t tell hubby) with the Painted with Love Specialty DSP (145580) and cut a 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece for the left side of the card.  The colors are so soft and beautiful and add some depth to the overall piece.

I needed to add a sentiment but didn’t want anything taking away from the foiled paper so I die cut a heart using the Lots to Love Box Framelits (145653) die from a scrap of Shimmery White cardstock (101910) .  I then heat embossed the floral images from the Petal Palette stamp set (145788) using Versamark ink (102283) and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (109129) .  I colored them in with the same colors used on the foiled DSP.  The sentiment is from the Graceful Garden stamp set (143849) and was stamped using the Calypso Coral Classic Stampin’ Pad (126983).

To assemble the card, I adhered the two pieces of DSP to each other using Fast Fuse Adhesive. To cover the seam, I cut a 6″ piece of Gold 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon (144146)  wrapped down the seam and adhered each end to the back using a glue dot.  I used the same ribbon to tie a small bow and adhered that with another glue dot.  The heart is popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430) and  the front panel attached to the card base using Fast Fuse.

I hope you enjoyed the card and will give it a try.  Hubby absolutely loved it!  As always, should you need any of the supplies mentioned above, just click the Shop Now button in the upper right corner or click here.

Birthday Tweet – for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Time once again for the monthly Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.  I am always so happy to participate in hopping with my team and we have some real “tweets” in store for you LOL!

When I saw the Bird Banter stamp set in the Occasions Catalog I knew right away that it was perfect for a birthday card I needed and that’s how this project was born.  It’s very simple and clean looking and super easy to create.

Using Whisper White cardstock (100730) I cut the focal panel using the largest square in the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (145372).  I love how the stitching really gives the panel a finished look.  Onto this I stamped the branch from Bird Banter Photopolymer Stamp Set (145852).  The branch is longer than the panel, so I masked the end with a sticky note before inking it up with the Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad(131179).  I then used the light Old Olive and Crumb Cake Dark markers in the Stampin’ Blends Markers Collection (147475) to color in the branch and leaves.  Next, I chose the cute parakeet from the same stamp set and inked it up again using Smoky Slate, stamping it right on top of the branch.  This is very easy to line up since these are photopolymer stamps. This cutie pie was colored with a combination of Pool Party light and dark, Bermuda Bay light and Daffodil Delight light Blends.  I also colored in his beak with the Pumpkin Pie dark Blend.  All that remained was to stamp the sentiment, again from Bird Banter, at the top of the panel using the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad (132708).

I wanted the focal panel to have a cute background to sit on, so I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 4″ x 5-1/4″.  I then took the leafy branch stamp from another Occasions stamp set, Petal Palette (145785), inked it up in Pear Pizzaz (131180) and stamped it twice from the center out to the upper left and again to the lower right.

That looked nice, but it still needed a little something extra to set off the focal panel.  I happened to have a small piece of the green striped pattern found in the Delightful Daisy DSP (144137) that was just big enough to mount the focal panel onto with about 1/8″ border all around.  This was glued to the focal panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755).  Now I was ready to finish assembling the card.

I cut a piece of Soft Sky cardstock (131203) 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored and folded it at 5-1/2″.  I adhered the leafy stamped panel to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the focal panel to this, popping it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).  For finishing touches, I added 3 enamel dot from the Brights Enamel Shapes (141680) and then filled in the parakeet with Glossy accents to give it a bit of shine (see pic below.)
