TEXAS LONE STAR CARD

HEY BLOGGIES,

Today I made a Texas Lone Star Card.  I actually made four of them.  It is a very easy card to create and I really enjoyed the process.  I saw this card on Frenchie's blog (France Martin) and knew I had to case it!!  Thanks Frenchie for the idea and video.  It was so fun to make.

 Here is the first card I made.  The star framelits die is used and then you score from the tip of each star point to make it be a 3D star.  I used the Woodgrain embossing folder, but Frenchie used the woodgrain stamp for her card.

 This second card here I stamped the sentiment from You've Got This stamp set in Cajun Craze ink.  I realized immediately it was not showing up very well.  So, I created a tag with a layer behind it and adhered it on top of the stamped sentiment.  I think it looks much better below, don't you?


Here is the one I sent in the mail today.  I added the 1 1/4" burlap ribbon near the bottom, and then some strips from the ribbon behind the star and as a knotted element on top of the star.

The embossing is supposed to look rustic and rusty, so after you use versamark ink and add gold embossing powder, you rub some of it off before you heat set it.  Then after it has cooled, you add sponged ink here and there to add some color.  I embossed it on some light blue retired card stock, then sponged cajun craze ink over it here and there.  It doesn't show that much, but it makes it very rustic looking.

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to Frenchie again for this idea.  L.O.V.E.   I.T.

YeeHaw, Go Texas!!

BOHEMIAN BORDERS SYMPATHY CARD

HEY BLOGGIES,

Hope you are all doing well.  We have some joy in our family this week:  our 8th Grandchild was born this week!!  A sweet tiny little boy named Levi.  How such a tiny thing can wiggle into your heart so quickly is a mystery.  But I feel such love for him already!!

Today I have an idea for a different way to use Bohemian Borders stamp set.  I made it into a flower-type of shape.  Enjoy:

There was a death in the family this week so I made this sympathy for the son of the deceased.  I feel like the colors make it a good card for a man.  But mostly it will be the letter I will write inside that will be the most important part of this card.


The very small layers behind the stamped layer is from the Bohemian DSP.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

I am entering this at Sketch Frenzy Friday.  Thanks for stopping by.

SHAKER CARD WITH SPRINKLES OF LIFE

HEY BLOGGIES,

Believe it or not I have NEVER made a shaker card!!  But today I have one to share with you and it was fun and easy to create.

 I used Watermelon Wonder, the new In Color.  The oval behind the shaker is Mint Macaron, also a new In Color.

 The stamp set Sprinkles of Life stamp set is a Charity Set that Stampin' Up! donates $3.00 to the Ronald MacDonald House Project for each set that is sold.  It also has a matching Tree Punch that punches out the icing, cherry, a tree, leaves and a few other things all on one punch.


I used my Oval Framelits to cut out the border around the window, as well as the window and the sticky fun foam I used as my frame on the back of the front panel to put the sequins inside.  Sticky fun foam can be obtained at most of your craft stores.  I used two layers stuck together.

I am entering this (a bit late) at the SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY challenge.  Pop over there to see what the other design team members have created, won't you?

I also am entering this is the ALOHA FRIDAY CHALLENGE:  BIRTHDAY.

Thanks for stopping by!!

LOTS OF RAIN HERE AGAIN...A CARD TO CELEBRATE THE BRIGHTER SIDE

TROPICAL STORM BILL has hit the Texas coast.  And the rains are covering most of mid and east Texas - including US!!

My good friend Tammy and I did some fun rainbow and showers cards.  I would like to share mine with you:

 She had the new Lawn Fawn Rainbow die and we made a fun glitter rainbow with it.

 This is the inside to complete the statement started on the front:  going thru both sunshine and showers bring RAINBOWS!!  What a great thought to help us get through the tough times, don't you think??!!


I used one pattern paper for the stormy cloud and the other two are whisper white cardstock on a cardboard die cut, then I used some grey Copics to color the clouds.  I used Stampin' Up! markers for the sun die cut.  I used a retired raindrop stamp and used a very light grey ink then covered the raindrops with Crystal Effects.

I added 6 mini colored pearls on the clouds for a little added dimension.

I am entering this card in the TRY STAMPIN' ON TUESDAY rain challenge.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
