Faux Framed Floral Card

Faux Framed Floral Card

xDSC_3359

(inside: Happy Mother’s Day)

I have been finding (and falling in love with!) some great older stamp sets on ebay.  The stamps on this card are from the “In Full Bloom” set from Stampin’ Up (retired).  I love the sketchy style of the images and the random dots on each of the stamps.

Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink was used for all the stamping.  The greeting is from the “Twig Wreath” set from Papertrey Ink.  I “scribbled” on my color to match the illustration style of the stamps using Copic Markers (TR15, E08, YG99, and W5). Black card stock was used to mat the focal panel.

The “frame” was created with the debossed side of the “Stately” embossing folder from Craft Concepts.  (I originally saw this folder used HERE where you can see what the embossed side looks like – thanks for the inspiration, Darnell!)  I think this folder (front or back) creates such a nice “finish” to CAS card designs!

The inside sentiment is from the “Lovely Little Wreath” set which was part of the Stampin’ Up Paper Pumpkin April 2016 kit (another “fun find” on ebay!).

Happy Easter Bunny

(inside: wishing you many blessings this Easter)

This card was made with the die set called “Happy Easter Bunny” by Tutti Designs (TUTTI-502).  There are lots of pieces (18!) that need to be glued down, but I think this die design is so clever and cute!  (You can see how I attached these small die cut pieces HERE.)

I adhered the pieces on a panel of Blue Denim card stock (GKD) that was embossed with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder.

The patterned paper is “Linen Door Boy Plaid” by The Paper Studio.  The inside sentiment is from the “Ink to Paper – Just Sentiments: Easter Mini Stamp Set” by Papertrey Ink.

Gold Cross for Easter

Gold Cross for Easter

(inside:  Wishing you a blessed Easter)

A die cut, some patterned paper, and lots of patience for the gluing…

This card was made with a beautiful cross and frame die (unbranded), Gina K Designs Metallic Gold card stock, and American Crafts Pressed Flower Paper (#341334).  The cross in the center is a separate piece that can be used alone or tucked in the frame as I did on the card above.

The inside sentiment is from the “Ink to Paper – Just Sentiments: Easter Mini Stamp Set” by Papertrey Ink.  Bazzill Butter Mints card stock was used for the card base.

More Copper and Kraft (Valentine’s Day and Sympathy Cards)

More Copper and Kraft (Valentine’s Day and Sympathy Cards)

wDSC_3286

I loved the combination of copper and Kraft so much and still had the supplies out on my desk after making my Copper Leaves card, so I decided to make a few more cards…

The sympathy card above was made with the “Magnolia Blossoms” stencil by Crafters Workshop (#TCW6X6-815S), gel medium, and Hero Arts Copper embossing powder.  The greeting is from the “Sympathy Duo” stamp set from Gina K Designs (retired?) and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  The Kraft card stock was also from Gina K Designs.

This Valentine’s Day card was done by placing the “Flourish” stencil by Tim Holtz (THS-032) over a heart shaped mask cut with a die from the Ecstacy Crafts/Nellie Snellen Heart set MFD060 before applying the gel medium and copper embossing powder.  The greeting is from a stamp set called “Sealed with a Kiss” by Paper Pretties (no longer available).
