Deepest Thanks Lift the Flap Card

 

  • Stamps – Lawn Fawn: “You are Sublime,” and “Push Here” sets
  • Dies – Lawn Fawn: “You are Sublime,” “Lift the Flap Circles,” and “Porthole Frames”
  • Copic markers
  • Embossing powder – Ranger -Silver Pearl
  • Cardstock – BoBunny and Paper Accents

This card was very fun to make. I die-cut the round flap, making a window in the top piece of grey cardstock. I colored my cast of characters with Copic markers and created the scene with the sea creatures in a layer underneath on light blue cardstock and adhered it behind the opening in the grey cardstock. I added the porthole frame around the circle flap and stamped “open” on the flap tab. The tab can then be tucked into the porthole frame. I colored the submarine image with metallic gel pens and adhered it to the outside of the flap. I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, adhering it to the bottom of the front panel. I then adhered the grey cardstock to the polka-dot, top fold card base. As always, Lawn Fawn has produced some great stamps and dies to create scenes with. I’m only getting started! Thanks for visiting.

Iris Fold Umbrella Card

 

  • Metallic Origami paper
  • Die – Simon Says Stamp “Thanks”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

During the spring months this year, my son played tennis on his high school team. This was his final year and he was fortunate to play varsity all four years. But unlike any other year, rainy weather interfered with nearly every scheduled match! Tennis isn’t like soccer–when it rains you have to stop playing because the courts get very slick and could cause injuries. Matches were constantly rescheduled to the next dry day and you never really knew when that would be! So at the end of the season when I was trying to determine a card design to use for the coaches’ cards, I decided on an umbrella theme. I hadn’t done iris folding in a long time, so I looked for a desirable pattern and ended up making my own. I used the school colors (blue and red) with a touch of silver. I added the school logotype “S” (for South Salem Saxons) as an accent. I made two of these for the team to sign to show appreciation to their coaches.

I will submit this for the Li’l Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #59:”Anything Goes” and the Pile it On Challenge #131: “Fancy Folds.” Thanks for visiting.

tcp329-kittyteacupthankyou

  • Stamps – The Cat’s Pajamas, “This Could Be Vodka” and “Simply Stacked Sentiments”
  • Dies – The Cat’s Pajamas, “Cups Duo Dies” and “Scalloped Duo Dies”
  • Patterned paper – American Crafts/Amy Tangerine “Better Together: Push + Pull” (double-sided paper – both patterns shown)
  • Copic markers
  • Cardstock – Paper Accents

It was really fun to use some of my new stash from The Cat’s Pajamas (TCP) and create something for the current TCP challenge: #329 Thank You. I stamped and colored the kitty in the teacup, then die-cut the teacup. I repeated the handle shape with the decorative scalloped die. Thanks for visiting.

 

 


Grateful Woodland Animals

  • Patterned paper – Pebbles “Woodland Forest” (both sides)
  • Stamp – Hero Arts
  • Cardstock –
  • Distress inks – Ranger “Carved Pumpkin” and “Walnut Stain”
  • Circle punch – 1-1/2″

This paper is so cute–full of different animals. So I punched each of them out with a circle punch and edged them with Distress Ink. The flip-side of the animal paper had a pleasing pattern so that served as the background for the animal portraits. I also was able to stamp the sentiment on the paper. Thanks for stopping by.


Framed Thanks

sss-thanks-cuts

  • Dies – Simon Says Stamp –
    • “Quadrangle Frames”
    • “Thanks”
  • Patterned cardstock – BoBunny
  • Solid cardstock – Bazzill
  • Sequins – Doodlebug Designs

I created this card without doing any stamping, which is fun to do once in awhile (but I do love my stamping!). This is a very simple design and could qualify as a masculine card. I made it in response to the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group Challenge #52: “Cut it Out,” which is to use die cuts on a card. The Shopping our Stash Challenge #265 is to use a word die and on this card, the sentiment is the focal point. That’s it for now. Thanks for visiting.


Freshly Made Sketches #228 – Thank You

fms-228-thanks

  • Stencil – The Crafter’s Workshop – TCW631s – “Mini Doodle Bloom”
  • Stamp – Hero Arts – CL738 “Messages with Flourish”
  • Patterned paper – Sizzix – “Fox Tales” Paper Pad
  • Ink – Ranger Distress Inks – Abandoned Coral, Spun Sugar and Squeezed Lemonade
  • Cardstock – Neenah Solar White

I used the Crafter’s Workshop stencil and applied Distress Ink through a portion of it to create the image for this card. The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #228. I mounted the white panel onto a piece of subtly patterned paper from Sizzix. It picked up my ink colors perfectly. I think I succeeded at clean and simple on this card! Hope to see you soon.


Thanks from a shiny fox

SOS-Thanks-Foxy

  • Dies:
    • Spellbinders “Foxy” and Labels One”
    • Simon Says Stamp “Thanks”
  • Metallic Gold cardstock
  • Ranger Distress Inks – Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, and Picked Raspberry
  • Doodlebug sequins
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

First, I created the multi-colored background by painting with Distress Inks and water, and then spritzed it with a little more water to get some nice spots! Then I die-cut it and the fox and sentiment and put them altogether. I unified it with more metallic gold by adding the sequins. I mounted the pieces on black to make the colors pop. The Shopping our Stash Challenge #228 is Thanks, which appropriate since Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away. Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
