Strawberry Thanks Card

Monday, February 18th, 2019

Dawn here from the little mennonite blog with a strawberry thanks card for you today.  Like many of you I await Spring and Summer and I love strawberries!  Here we go!

Directions:

Die cut the Paper Smooches Thanks Word die (twice) and other pieces of patterned Lawn Fawn paper as shown above.  Although I used older Lawn Fawn paper you can get the same effect by using this Lawn Fawn 6×6 paper pack.

To die cut the blue scalloped edge under the yellow, use the Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave Boarders die, as shown above.

Adhere patterned paper to an A2 card front.  Using the Lawn Fawn stamp set Sweet Friends stamp images and colour as shown.  Be sure the use Memento Tuxedo Black ink for the stamping so your alcohol ink markers won’t make the ink run.  Below is the directions for the strawberry.

Happy Hugs

Meet Happy Hugs!

Who said that a Valentine card had to be done in Pink or Red?

If you have seen my work you will know that I love birds, so I could not resist these sweet images from Penny Black. 

Starting with my background, first by die cutting the water colour paper using my Sweetheart Layers die, then did a water colour wash using a Schmincke water colour named May Green. This could also be done using Twisted Citron distress ink. Once it was dry I splattered with white acrylic paint. I stamped the bird images on the same water colour paper in Ranger Archival Jet Black ink and proceeded to colour using Zig Clean Color Pens.

To put it all together, I attached the green background, then the water coloured panel. I die cut the Heart Circle using card stock, and attached using foam squares. I then arranged the birds where I wanted them and attached them on foam squares as well. I then placed the card in my Misti and stamped the sentiment using Ranger Archival Vibrant Fuchsia ink. 

Moving on to the inside, I die cut another piece of card stock in the white and stamped the sentiment and the heart from the American Crafts Heart Day stamp set. To bring the green in I sponged the heart in Twisted Citron, which was left from the Heart Circle die on the card front.

I have a video of this card which you can find here.

Thanks For Being That Friend!

THANKS FOR BEING THAT FRIEND!

Hello there! I’m super excited to be here, as a new member of the Scrap ‘N Stamp Design Team! My name is Deb, and I live here on the beautiful Canadian west coast – in Vancouver, in fact, which is where Scrap ‘N Stamp is located. I’m a WAHM of 2 grown boys (20 and 24) with my husband. I found stamping when carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists forced me to give up my floral business just over 7 years ago, and before that I gave up my ‘corporate’ job when our first son was born. Needless to say – I much prefer the creative world!

Today I have a quick & fun card to share with you, involving another one of my favourite things – wine! I think this card would be a great ‘Galentine’ card for your bestie, or just because they’re a great friend.

Thanks For Being That Friend!

I’m using the My Favorite Things Good Time to Wine stamp set, along with the matching Wine Glass Shaker & Frame dies. I also added extra fun, making it a shaker card by using the MFT Wine Glass Shaker Pouches!

To start, I sponged on some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink onto white cardstock. I used my Life Changing Blender Brushes from Picket Fence Studios – be sure to keep checking the store, because these are COMING SOON to Scrap ‘N Stamp!! (you’ll fall in love with these brushes – they really do live up to their name!).  After sponging, I dabbed some of the Picked Raspberry ink onto a clear block, and picked up some of the ink with a slightly wet water brush, and flicked some ink over the panel.

Next, I used my Big Shot with the MFT Wine Glass Shaker & Frame Dies to die cut 2 of the glasses from silver foil cardstock. I wanted my glasses to be clear, so I then cut 2 of the backing pieces for the shaker from acetate.

For the next step, I lined the back of the glass ‘bowl’ part with 1/8″ double sided tape, then removed the backing. I then insert the Wine Glass Shaker Pouch, 1 per glass, and then filled each one with some clear droplets form my stash. Then, I attached the acetate backing with more double sided tape, to hold them in place.

Thanks for Being That Friend!

In the photo above, you can see the fun dimension that the Wine Glass Shaker Pouches add to the card!

For the sentiment from the Good Time to Wine stamp set, I place a strip of vellum into my stamp platform. The sentiment is stamped first in Picked Raspberry Distress ink, and then again in Versamark ink. I then covered it with clear embossing powder, and set it with a heat tool. The heat embossing helps the sentiment stand out a bit more, on the vellum and over the glass stems.

To assemble the card, I used the double sided tape to attach the left glass directly to the sponged panel. The left glass was attached using foam tape, to give it dimension, so it looks like the glasses are clinking. Next, I added some more of the clear droplets above the glasses, to look like bubbles. I also added a few drops of Nuvo Crystal Glaze between the droplets, to look like smaller bubbles. The sentiment is attached with a small amount of liquid glue onto the stem of the glasses.

Finally, the front panel is attached to a panel of silver cardstock (to carry over the silver of the glasses) and then onto a card base of bright pink.

Thanks for Being That Friend!
