Framed Birthday…

Most of us I’m pretty sure send out mostly birthday cards…I have lists each month.  So keeping a stash of them on hand is always a good idea.

Of course feminine cards are my favorite and with flowers pushes me over the moon.  So today I’m posting an “over the moon” card…

How sweet and feminine is that?  Just makes me smile to look at it!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits in case you’d like to make it too…

  • Cut a piece of Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding 6″ long, fold in center and attach to lower right corner with SNAIL.  Wrap several loops of Linen Thread and attach over Seam Binding with multipurpose glue.  Add splats with Berry Burst marker using the lid and pulling the brush end out flipping color everywhere!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

I’m still looking…

But I’m still inky…and HaPpY!

Standout HB…

The different techniques you can use with this framelit interested me…and I plan to use all of them!

This first technique where the words are popped out of the stamped art was somewhat (not too bad, I’ve done lots worse) was the first technique I tried…

And I had been waiting for a project using this stamp set…this seemed perfect!

This card gave me the perfect opportunity to use the newly available Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets.

Is that a standout happy birthday or what?

And a peek inside…

Not to long ago I used this method with the Rose Wonder stamp set and framelits.  It turned out gorgeous, but I lost my mind placing all those little pieces back inside.  This one really wasn’t bad at all and I do love the effect.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for this card…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock
  • Ink:  Powder Pink, Real Red, Lemon Lime Twist, Crumb Cake and Old Olive.
  • Stamps:  Graceful Garden
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Happy Birthday Thinlits,  Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, small round brush or Blender Pen, ribbon (your choice, this Seam Binding is retired)

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-1/4″ attached to card front with SNAIL
  • The top Thick Whisper White layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Stamp rose image by “painting” stamp with markers.  Color all the rose Powder Pink first and all the leaves Lemon Lime Twist.  Then go back with Real Red and Old Olive and paint half of the image over the lighter color.  Use a small round brush with water or a Blender Pen to pull the color into the white spaces of the image.  I made a mask of the rose with post it note paper, covered the image and stamped the background with Crumb Cake stamped off once.
  • Cut a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet as big as the HB Thinlit.  Attach this sheet to back of stamped image.  Run through Big Shot with HB Thinlit on top.  Attach another piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to back of a piece of white fun foam and run through Big Shot.  Remove stamped HB image carefully from stamped layer keeping all background pieces.  Attach stamped piece to card front with SNAIL.  Attach fun foam inside cut out on card front.  Attach stamped HB over fun foam.  Add background pieces back in their place.  How pretty is that?
  • Now inside the Lemon Lime Twist layer is 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ attached with SNAIL
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″ attach over Lemon Lime Twist layer with SNAIL
  • Using the small rose stamp image and coloring with marker in the same way as the larger image, stamp in lower right corner and blend colors with small round brush or Blender Pen.
  • Forget to show the envelope, but the smaller rose was stamped again in the lower left corner to coordinate with the card front.

Right now I’m looking for a masculine image to repeat this technique.  I’ll be sure to share that with you too.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Color Pencil Rose…

Yesterday I confessed the stencil paste was one of my favorite new products.  The first card I made after my order arrived, I used the paste.

Today’s post uses the new stencils and paste again along with the colored pencils and the Birthday Blooms stamp set.

The paste was colored using the Crumb Cake reinker…

This glamour close up shows the “dew” made with fine tipped glue applicator…

And a side view.  Do you love this ombré Lemon Lime Ribbon?

And a peek inside where I used the framelit sets to Colorful Season (branch) and Beautiful Bouquet (flowers)

So I’m in a REAL pickle…my electricity abruptly went off yesterday for two hours.  When I came into the studio to begin posting, my computer was blank!  I’ve tried everything I know to fix it with no success.

So for now I’ll have to try to post with my IPad and hope it goes well until we get this computer thing figured out…UGH!

Here’s the StuffN Digits for today’s card…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral Cardstock
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Crumb Cake
  • Stamps:  Birthday Blooms, Beautiful Bouquet (sentiments)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  1/4″ Lemon Lime Twist Ombré Ribbon, Embossing Paste, Pattern Party Decorative Masks, Palette Knives, Linen Thread, Seasonal Layers Framelits (branch) and Bouquet Bunch Framelits (flowers)

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″
  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.
  • The Crumb Cake layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  The rose was stamped in lower left corner with Crumb Cake ink.  Mix a small amount of paste with Crumb Cake reinker.  Lay the stencil diagonally at top right corner and apply paste with knife.  Let dry.  Be sure to clean your stencil and knife right away.
  • Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black at lower right corner.
  • Using a white colored pencil, color all of the rose image.  This will keep your colors bright.  I used a light and dark shade of pink and the same for the green.  I left some of the white pencil showing,  Use two tones of a pretty blue to shadow the rose.
  • Before adding this layer over the Lemon Lime Twist, attach a band of the Ombré Lemon Lime Ribbon at the top attached at back with SNAIL.  Make several looped bow and tie center with Linen Thread.  Attach with glue dots.
  • Inside the Lemon Lime Twist layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached with SNAIL
  • The Whisper White layer is 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.  Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black at top left.  Cut branch from Colorful Seasons Set in Lemon Lime Twist and add with multipurpose glue at an angle from mid left to lower right.  Cut two sets of flowers from Calypso Coral CS.  Cut one set in half and add to branch with multipurpose glue.

I hope you’ll give this paste a try.  It’s priced reasonably for all the fun you can have with it.

Spotlight Lemon Lime Twist…

This is a huge birthday month for me with several of them being male.  Are you as challenged by “male themed” cards as I am?

The reason (at least for me) might be that 85% of the cards I make are feminine in nature.  And I love flowers and soft, sweet colors…..

However, when the new InColors were first shown to me at OnStage in Savannah, and because I’m a “green” person…Lemon Lime Twist appealed to me immediately.  And just as quickly I envisioned it paired with black.

Here’s my Lemon Lime Twist, male themed with black post for you today…

That beacon of light is Daffodil Delight ink so you can see the contrast of these two colors.  Do you like Lemon Lime Twist paired with black?

Glamour close up shot…

Side view to show dimension…even the little piece of grass is set up as is the lighthouse and the double layer on front.

and a peek inside.  The sentiment is so appropriate…

If you feel as challenged as I do sometimes making male themed cards, tuck this one in your pocket for emergencies.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Lemon Lime Twist, Basic Black and Thick Whisper White Cardstock plus Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Smoky Slate and Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Feathered Together (sentiments) and High Tide
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Urban Underground Embellishments and Adhesive Strips

Digits

  • The Lemon Lime Twist base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
  • The Basic Black layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached to card front with SNAIL
  • The DSP layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached over the Basic Black layer with SNAIL
  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
  • The Basic Black layer is 3-1/8″ x 4-1/8″ attached to the Lemon Lime Twist layer with SNAIL
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 3″ x 4″.  Stamp lighthouse on scrap Whisper White and “fussy cut”.  Stamp one grass on same scrap and “fussy cut”.  Stamp sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist at top of this layer.  Position lighthouse to get an idea where you want the light beam to be and stamp.  Add lighthouse with dimensionals.  Stamp grass at base and add “fussy cut” grass to base with glue dot.  Splatter using Lemon Lime Twist marker and lid.  Add three silver stars.  Attach all three layers to center card front using Adhesive Strips.
  • Inside the Whisper White layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ with a 1/2″ x 3-1/4″ strip of DSP placed at the bottom with SNAIL.
  • You can see in the photo the same DSP was used to cover the envelope flap to coordinate with the card front.

Hope your Wednesday is a good one…if not, well…at least it is “hump day”!
