Hello Friend Pocket Gift Card

Hi all....well it's time for another tutorial on the Scrapbooker's Paradise Blog....so if you would like to know how to line up your stamps with your dies head on over there for my tutorial. Here's the card I made using My Favorite Things Die-namics- Pretty Pocket............

Products Used:
Cardstock:Black, White and Basic Grey Out of Print 6"x6" Paper Pad
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks- Weathered Wood, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire, Ranger Archival Black Ink

So I used the embossing folder on the patterned paper and adhered it to the front of the card. Then I cut out the pocket from the front of the card and used my ink blending tool with all 3 Distress Inks over the embossing. I used my scor-tape on 3 sides of the pocket I made in my tutorial and lined it up on the inside of the card so when it's closed you will see the pocket. I also stamped friend and hello on the tabs I die cut and then used my distress inks on them. These are placed one on the outside and one on the inside. Here's what the inside looks like:

You can use the pocket on the inside for a gift card. Then I made a rose from some of the patterned papers and the rose creations die and I also cut out some leaves. I used the glue gloss on the rose and the leaves, then I sprinkled some of the glitter on them. Then I adhered it to the front of the card. Here's a close-up of the rose, you can actually see the glitter :)..............

So that's it for how I made this card...............so until next time........................Have a great week!!!

Roses On Your Birthday!!!

Hi all, so who's enjoying summer??? With all the rain, I sure hope that summer is somewhere around the corner.....we seem to be getting more rain than shine :) So I just love the Heartfelt Creations Dies and Stamps and I love that they have more than one stamp set for their dies. So here's what I came up with for today's post............
Products Used:
Cardstock: White, Tim Holtz Coredinations- Weathered Wood and Victorian Velvet and Kaiser Craft Velvet Ensemble 6x6 Paper Pad
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks- Victorian Velvet, Aged Mahogany, Crushed Olive and Forest Moss
Misc.: Prima Lace

This is a fairly simple card, but I did do a bunch of layering. So first off, I did all the stamping on the white cst and used the dies to cut everything out twice. Then I pop dotted the flowers and all of the leaves. I used the punch on one of the patterned papers and did a bunch of layering with the patterned paper, cst and lace. Once all of that was done, I adhered the two roses and the leaves with the flourish. Then did some more layering with cst and patterned paper and stamped my sentiment. I guess that's it for this one. The new Kaiser Craft Velvet Ensemble Papers are just so gorgeous and they go great with the Heartfelt Creations Roses Dies and Stamps! So until next time...........Have a great week!!!

Sunflowers, Butterflies & Blue Skies!!!

Hi all.....it's Showcase Monday on Scrapbooker's Paradise Blog and this month's theme is Summer Fun........since I don't do a lot of scrapbooking this was a hard theme for me......but I did come up with something and I hope you all like it!!!

When I think of summer, it reminds me of butterflies and sunflowers, so here's what I came up with............

Products Used
Cardstock: Light Aqua, Dark Aqua, Brown Strathmore Watercolor Paper and Prima 6"x6" Madeline Paper Pad
Stamps: Flourishes- Sunflowers and Country Charm
Inks: Ranger Archival Ink-Black and Momento-Rich Cocoa
Misc.: Creative Imaginations Twinkling H2O's-Solar Gold, Warm Pecan, Lemondrop, Rainforest, Kiwi and Navajo Pearl, Sizzix Embossing Folder- Butterfly Migration, Sakura Koi Waterbrushes, Tim Holtz Sanding Block, Copic Glitter Marker-Lipstick, Eclipse Masking Tape and misc. Brown Ribbon

I wanted to play with my Twinkling H2O's and do a sunflower, so I stamped the large sunflower with the black archival ink from the flourishes set, then masked it and stamped the leaf and then masked it again and stamped the small sunflower bud. Then I used my waterbrush and coloured all of it with the H2O's. I stamped the sunflower again and coloured that in, shaped it and cut it out. It's pop dotted over the first one. I stamped the little ladybug, coloured it in with the glitter marker, then cut it out, shaped it and pop dotted it. The pic really doesn't do it justice, as it's much more shimmery in person! Then, I used the embossing folder on the patterned paper and the dark teal cst, sanded and used the rich cocoa around the edges. I punched the lattice out of the patterned paper and layered it on top, then pop dotted the sunflower, which I layered with the brown cst. Stamped and die cutted the sentiment and added the ribbon. Adhered all of this to the card base. That's pretty much it for this card............so I hope you all enjoyed my version of summer!!! Have a great week, till next time..............

So if you would like to pick up some of the Twinkling H2O's or just want to do some shopping............check out Scrapbooker's Paradise Online store............I'm sure you will find tons of stuff to order!!  :)
