Happy Blooming Birthday!

Sunday, April 7, 2019

Hello there! Tonight I am sharing a card that I made for this week's Seize the Birthday challenge.

I received the Simon Says Stamp April card kit the other day and when I was looking through the patterned paper I knew it would be perfect for this challenge's topping which is "Spring".

Y'all, patterned paper scares me. I don't really use it except for a little piece here or there or a background behind a panel so making this card was something new for me. 

I started by cutting the "Happy Bloomng Birthday!" sentiment from the patterned paper. From another piece of the patterned paper I used my paper trimmer to cut the light wood grain pieces. Then I trimmed a piece of the flowered patterned paper with the green background. Using a border die I cut two borders and adhered them on either side of the flowered paper. I adhered all of those pieces to my card front. I finished by making the sentiment piece into a tag by punching a hole in the top, adding a piece of white ribbon, and wrapping some twine around it. I made the bow separately and glued it on with some Glossy Accents.

My Supplies:
Dies: Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders
Paper: Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse double sided papers, SSS Ivory, PTI White Stamper's Select

Hello there! Today I have a card for this week's Color Throwdown challenge.

I started this card by die cutting the cross shape out of gray, white, yellow, green, and purple card stock. I used a stitched rectangle die to die cut the gray panel. I taped the edges and used a stencil to create the diagonal stripes on the panel. I didn't have the ink color that matches the card stock I used so I found a distress oxide ink that matched pretty well. I used a sheet of double sided adhesive to adhere the panel to a piece of fun foam. I inlaid the white cross outline into the panel and then inlaid pieces from the colored card stock into the white piece. For the cross, I used the gray card stock and white heat embossed my sentiment onto it. I then adhered the gray panel to a white card base.

My Supplies:
Stamps: SSS Tiny Words Faith
Dies: SSS Outline Floral Cross, MFT Blueprints 13
Ink: Distress Oxide Hickory Smoke, Versamark
Paper: SSS Smoke Gray, SSS Green Apple, MFT Daffodil, MFT Pure Plum, PTI White Stamper's Select
Other: SSS Diagonal Stripe Stencil, Brutus Monroe Alabaster White Embossing Powder
