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”!

Here’s another interactive card that is really easy to assemble…

foxvideo

How cute is that?

with the slider closed…

with the slider open and message showing…

glamour shot for the fox…

side view…

and a peek inside.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Dapper Denim (because I don’t have any Pacific Point!) and Thick Whisper White Cardstock, plus Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Real Red and Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Birthday Delivery
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Birthday Friends Framelits Dies, Balloon Honeycomb Embellishments, Word Punch (retired, you can substitute Classic Label Punch), Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Urban Underground Embellishments

Digits

  • The Dapper Denim base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″.
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″.
  • The two DSP layers are 2-1/2″ top and 2″ bottom.  Attach to Whisper White layer with SNAIL.  Using the punch, insert layer into punch as far as it will go and centered…punch.  Line up punch on right side and punch.  Repeat for left side.  You should now have an opening on the bottom of this layer for the slider.
  • Let’s make that slider…Cut a piece of Dapper Denim 1-3/4″ x 6″.  Cut a piece of DSP 1″ x 6″ and attach to center of CS with SNAIL.  Cut one end with Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Add star from Urban Underground Embellishments at punched end.
  • Using the front layer as a pattern, draw with pencil around opening onto the Dapper Denim base card.  Cut a piece of Whisper White 1″ x 5-1/4″.  Attach this piece to the base card over the pencil tracing.  Now lay the top layer down and trace the opening again being careful to have the layer exactly where you are going to attach it and trace the opening on the Whisper White lightly.  Stamp you sentiment inside your pencil markings.  Remove pencil line with eraser.
  • Now turn over the top layer and with the slider in place, add Adhesive Strips on both sides and the end of the slider channel for a stop.  Also add strips around the top and side edges.  Remove protective paper and attach to card base.  Slide in your slider to be sure it works.  You may need to trip the straight end if the slider is too long.
  • Cut fox from DSP with Framelit Die.  Cut another fox from Whisper White and glue together with multipurpose glue.  Stamp banner in black ink on Whisper White CS.  Add sentiment in Real Red.  Cut another banner out of Whisper White and glue to back of stamped banner with multipurpose glue.
  • With slider in place add two dimensions stacked at far right of opening.  Add fox over these stacked dimensionals.  Glue sentiment banner to his paw.  Let dry.  Add balloon just to right of fox’s left shoulder.  Look what you did?  How awesome is that?
  • Inside there is a Whisper White layer 4″ x 5-1/4″.  The HB sentiment is in Real Red.  The mouse and his hat were fussy cut and added with multipurpose glue.  The strip of DSP is 1/2″ x 5-1/4″ added with SNAIL.

My experience has been that people love these interactive cards.  I hope you will give this card a try.  Once you’ve made one, you’ll duplicate it over and over.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Birthday Delivery Spinner…

It just doesn’t get much more fun that this…the last weekend of this month Sweetums and I will be traveling to NYC to surprise our g’daugher, Lyla (the littles), for her 10th birthday!  She knows nothing about the trip or that we will be at the airport when she arrives.  Can you say excited?

So you know there has to be the most special birthday card, right?

Cutie Pie, right?

Glamour close up…

Side angle…

From the top…

Making this card was the most fun…here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Pink Powder Cardstock, plus Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Real Red, Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Birthday Delivery
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Birthday Friends Framelits Set, Copper Thread, Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pen, Thin Tipped Glue, Tear Tape, Stitched Ovals Dies

Digits

  • Cut the Powder Pink card base 4-1/4″ x 11″.  Score at 5-1/2″.  Cut another panel 4-1/4″ x 6″, score at 1/2″ on long side.  Attach the shorter panel to the double panel with Tear Tape. Basically you have six panels counting front and back.  Five panels are decorated.

  • Let’s start with the one just above.  In the center panel place a Whisper White layer 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ with a DSP layer on top 4″ x 5-1/4″.  One panel done!
  • The panel with the oval opening has a Whisper White layer 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″.  The DSP layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Attach layers together and to card front with just a smidge of SNAIL.  Run through Big Shot with the smaller Stitched Oval Framelit to cut all three layers at the same time…it works, I promise and your layers will be perfectly aligned!  Take layers apart.  With the Scalloped Oval Framelit, cut just the DSP layer.
  • Let’s make the cutie pie girl.  Cut the figure from DSP with matching die.  Stamp on scrap Whisper White the back of her.  Color with watercolor pencils and a Blender Pen and cut out with matching die.  Cover both pieces with Thin Tipped Glue and let dry completely.  Once dry add multipurpose glue to backside of one piece, lay a 10″ piece of Copper Thread top to bottom then add second piece on top.  Add an acrylic block over it to hold it in place until completely dried.
  • Now add the Whisper White panel to the card front with multipurpose glue.  Lay the girl in the center of the oval with copper thread extending over edges.  Add multipurpose glue and attach DSP layer on top.  Add weight and let dry completely.  Trim Copper thread at edges.  Give the girl a few turns and watch her spin!.  The flag was stamped on scrap Whisper White and cut out with framelit.  Add to card panel with multipupose glue.
  • Now let’s work on the opposite side of all three panels.  Starting with the center panel there is a layer of Whisper White 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.  The DSP layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached with SNAIL.  There are three balloons cut with framelit attached to background with dimensionals.
  • The panel that serves as the “stop” for the easel is a piece of DSP 2″ x 4-1/4″.  The Stitched Oval Framelit was used with Pink Powder CS attached with dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped on scrap Whisper White and punched with the new Pretty Label Punch and attached to the oval with dimensionals.  The gift box was cut from DSP with Framelit and added with SNAIL.
  • The Belly Band that holds the card together is 2″ x 11″ Whisper White scored at 4-3/8 and 9-1/4″.  The DSP layer is 1-3/4″ x 11″ attached with SNAIL.  The Whisper White oval was the one cut from the card front stamped in Real Red.  The cake was cut from DSP with Framelit and attached with SNAIL.  Wrap closed card and overlap ends.  Add Tear Tape to close Belly Band.

This card took a little time…like starting it last night and letting the pieces dry well then finishing this morning.  Honestly it takes more time to photograph and write up that it does to make it.  But you should definitely give one of these spinner cards a try…fun!  This bundle is the perfect place to start!  All supplies available June 1st!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking a peek.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

maybe tomorrow…

Stay inky…be HaPpY!
