Celebrate Birthday Card

With the inspiration from Tammy Wilson, Artisan Design Team 2021, I chose to make this card after making some adjustments.  Here's how it's made:

  • Pale Papaya card stock - 5 1/2  x 8 1/2 inches.  Score at 4 1/4.
  • Front Liner (mat) - 4 x 5 1/4 inches.  Emboss with Painted Texture embossing folder.
  • Pale Papaya card stock - 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.  Cut with Stitched Rectangle die.  Take a blending brush and lightly color this piece to make it slightly darker with Pale Papaya ink.
  • Cut a white piece of card stock 3 1/4 x 1 3/4 inches and cut out with die from Scalloped Contours.  Repeat the  brushing  color process on this piece using the blending brush and Pale Papaya ink.  The color should look a blush down the center of the piece.
  • Cut out with the Stitched Rectangle set a piece of white card stock that has been embossed with "Celebrate" (gold embossing powder and Versamark ink).  Stamp set used was Create With Friends.
  • On white cardstock, cut out the floral bouquet with the die from Artistic dies.
  • Cut out two branches from Peach Dies from Gold Foil paper.
  • Adhere the embossed mat to the card base.  
  • Add the floral bouquet die cut to the card face.
  • Add the inked and colored die cut in Pale Papaya with dimensionals to the far right of the card.
  • Add the inked white card stock die cut from Scalloped Contours on dimensionals.
  • Add the branch die cuts from gold foil paper and place them as shown on the card face.
  • Add "Celebrate", embossed die cut with dimensionals on each end.
  • Add a simple bow, your choice of ribbon.

Thanks So Much Card

 This "Thank You" card combines the colors of Basic Black with Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade using the IN SYMMETRY stamp set.  Used the PATTERN PARTY Designer Series Paper and colored the black and white check paper with Cinnamon Cider ink and used the Blending Brushes to fill in the color.    The flower images were stamped in Cinnamon Cider and the leaf images were stamped in Just Jade.  I did add a black bow to the tag (Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon) to finish the look.  Please leave comment...

Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card

 This Sympathy Card is one that you should have on hand.  Put it in your stash to keep so that it's ready to send!  This card was created from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set and the ink colors of Gorgeous Grape, Fresh Freesia, and Old Olive.  There are no corresponding dies available to cut out the flowers so get your scissors ready to fussy cut!  Thanks for taking a peek!

With inspiration from Tami Hewlett, Artisan Design Team, I added my own touches and came away with this card for any occasion.  Stamp set I used was Artistically Inked and added Artistic dies to do the die cuts.  Ink used was Balmy Blue, Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay, and Granny Apple Green.  The background paper was altered to add additional color...used Expressions in Ink.  I used Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay, and White card stock.  And lastly, I added Shimmery Crystal Effects to the centers of the flowers for accent!  Hope you like this card....
