Winter Napkin Card

Winter Napkin Card

xDSC_0835.jpg

Here is another card I made using my Mini Minc Foil Applicator to adhere a decorative paper napkin to card stock to use as a background panel.  The napkin creates a textured panel that looks and feels like cloth, and there are so many different napkins (prints) from which to choose!  (HERE are a few samples I made earlier with a Santa napkin.)

To adhere the napkin to a piece of card stock, you first separate and discard the one (or two) plain layers from the top printed layer of the napkin.  Then, you sandwich a piece of cling wrap between a piece of card stock and the top layer of the napkin (all trimmed to the same size), and run it through your Minc (on the highest setting).  The panel can then be trimmed to fit your card project.  (HERE is a video showing you how this technique is done.)

I added a die cut greeting and some yarn, gold cord and a metallic snowflake charm to the panel to finish it off.

You can see the sparkle better in the photo below:

This die set also comes with an ornament die that can be used alone or “around” the snowflake frame.  You can see a pretty sample of the ornament die cut combined with the snowflake frame HERE (halfway through Darnell’s post).

Silhouette Daisies

This CAS card features the daisies from the “Various Verses” stamp set from Gina K Designs (retired?) and a greeting from the “Painted Harvest” set from Stampin’ Up.  Both were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink on white card stock matted on black.    A sponged background of Gina K  Ocean Mist and Applemint inks added a pop of color.

Using the same layout, the same mask for the sponging, and the same daisy stamp, I switched up the colors and made a birthday card as well.

On this version, the images were stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink on white card stock.  (The greeting on this one is also from the “Various Verses” set.)  The ink for sponging and the card stock used was Gina K Peach Bellini and Kraft.

Heartfelt Thanks

Heartfelt Thanks

In a recent post, I shared a sympathy card I had made with just the outline stamp of one of the two-step images from the “Heartfelt Thanks” stamp set from Stampin’ Up.  Here is a card I made where I added color with the corresponding solid filler stamp.

I used Tim Holtz Aged Mahogany and Forest Moss distress markers to ink the outline stamps.  The solid stamp and greeting were inked with Forest Moss and Victorian Velvet distress ink.  (I created masks of the stem/leaves and of the petals so I could stamp each part separately to add two colors.)  I spritzed ink from the Forest Moss marker onto the stamped panel with my Tim Holtz marker spritzer tool.

The greeting is from the “Fabulous Flowers” set from Gina K Designs.  Card stock is GKD Dark Sage and white.  The printed paper is “Tan Floral Tapestry” by Paper Pizazz – Hot Off The Press.

The stamped panel was cut and embossed with a die from the Spellbinders “Classic Rectangles Large” set.

Here is a sample without the speckles:

The greeting on this one is from the “With Love and Prayers” set from Gina K Designs.

Penn Shaker Thank You Card

Penn Shaker Thank You Card

I’ve designed several Penn-themed thank you cards over the past few years and found myself needing another one recently.  I decided to go with a shaker card design for this one.

I hand-cut the split P from a piece of a rubber sheet (used to make custom gaskets) and mounted the pieces on EZ Mount Foam.  I stamped the two parts of my hand-made stamp on Gina K ivory card stock with Gina K In the Navy and Cranberry Tart ink.  I used a Tim Holtz Chipped Sapphire distress marker and the Tim Holtz marker spritzer tool to create the speckles.

The “thanks” was cut with the “In A Word: Thanks Cutaway” die (#WW031CA) from Winnie & Walter.

I used the “Die-namics Gift Card Window & Frame” die set and a plastic “Gift Card Pouch” to create the shaker portion of the card.

The red and blue paper is called “Patriotic Stripe” from Hot Off The Press and coordinated nicely with the red and blue sequins I found online.  Gina K Ivory and In the Navy card stock was also used.
