Personalized Birthday Card Fit for a Princess


Princess Birthday Card

Hello Friends,

Our granddaughter, Brooke, is a girly-girl.  She loves pink and Purple, princesses, and dresses.  So how do you make a Personalized Birthday Card Fit for a Princess?  Try using girly colors along with Playful Alphabet and Stitched Stars Dies.  The results are so pretty!


Granddaughter Birthday Card

Because she is our granddaughter, I inked with Magenta Madness ink stamps from the A Grand Kid stamp set to add birthday wishes inside my card.

Brooke is old enough to read so I personalized her birthday card with Playful Alphabet Dies.

Curvy Celebrations Slimline Cards

 

Curvy Celebrations Stampin' Up!

2 Hot Topics in the Stamping World


Slimline Cards

Hello Friends,

Two trending topics in the stamping and cardmaking world are Slimline Cards and the new Curvy Celebrations products from Stampin' Up!.  So today I will share both how to make Slimline Cards and a Sneak Peek of the Curvy Celebrations products that will be available starting November 3.   See Curvy Celebrations Flyer Here.

Let's see what all the chatter is about!


Slimline Cards

What's the BIG Deal About Slimline Cards?

Slimline Card fit nicely in standard #9 or #10 envelopes that are readily available in almost any store.

You can fit more design elements on a Slimline card.

Do you find yourself bored with the standard size card?  Try a Slimline Card.  This tall narrow card is a refreshing change of pace.  Of course, there's also the option of making Slimline Cards on a smaller scale, but we will talk about that another day.

Slimline Card Measurements

Cut Card Base 8-1/2" x 7-1/2".  Note 8-1/2" is the height of the card.  Score at 3-3/4".

After cutting your card base from an 8-1/2" x 11" piece of card stock, you will have a piece leftover that works nicely for a front panel.  I trimmed mine to 8" x 3-1/4".  Then I dry embossed the front panel with my Subtle Embossing Folder for just a hint of texture.

Notice the two different options that I used for my leaves border.  The leaves can be stamped and then colored or they can be stamped directly on colored card stock.  Both options are pretty.  I used Just Jade card stock and Just Jade Stampin' Blends for today's cards.

Watercolor Technique Sympathy Card


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

Watercolor Technique for Cards


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!
Hello Friends, 

Making Sympathy Cards is tough but this Watercolor Technique is beautiful. Who says Sympathy Cards need to be boring? After completing the watercolor technique, I stamped winter trees from the Winter Woods stamp set to finish my scene.  Then, I layered the whole thing with In Good Taste Designer paper and other fun card elements.

Winter Woods Stampin' Up!
Watercolor Technique for Cards

Spritz watercolor paper to get it damp, then using a water painter swoosh layers of Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry inks.  Hint: be sure to overlap layers of ink.  Keep applying ink until you are satisfied.  Completely dry using heat tool or set aside and come back later.

Next, with your fingers splatter water droplets across your watercolor.  Let sit for a few minutes, then blot up excess water.  Allow to completely dry.

Dip water painter in a bit of Soft Suede ink then flick your painter with your finger to make splatters.

After the watercolor and splatters are completely dry, stamp your winter trees using Early Espresso ink.  Hint:  Stamp using the Stamparatus for a great stamped image.
