Quick & Easy Thank You Card

Monday, February 24th, 2020

We’ve all been there – you need a card quickly, but don’t have much time! Hello friend – Deb here from the Design team, and today I’m sharing a quick & easy thank you card that you can pull together in a jiffy. Another way of using this card is to create it in advance, but just leave off the sentiment. Then, it’s ready for when you need it – just add the sentiment appropriate to the situation at hand!

COZY COMPANIONS THANK YOU

Who doesn’t love a bear in a cozy chair, with a mug of hot chocolate?! This cutie is ready say ‘thank you’, or even just thinking of you.

Quick and Easy Thank You Card

Wouldn’t you just love to join him in a cup of cocoa? I would!

CARD DETAILS

On a small piece of white cardstock, stamp the bear image from the MFT Cozy Companions set in Memento Tuxedo black ink.  Colour in the image using Copic markers. For the chair, I chose greens G09 & G03; B00 & B02 for the sweater; E29 & E37 browns for the bear and Y28 (which is a Lionet Gold) for the stool & chair legs. Next, use the coordinating Cozy Companions dies to die cut the bear.

For the background, use the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle dies and cut a smaller light blue panel, and a larger white panel. Use a blending tool to add some Salty Ocean Distress ink around the edges of each panel.  Use the Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Penny Black Sentiment Collection in the  upper right corner. Now, layer the pieces together. Glue the white panel onto a light blue card base, then attach the blue panel & the die cut bear with foam tape.

Quick and Easy Thank You Card

I think that the die cutting, along with the stitched layers adds just the right amount of interest & depth for this card. And no one needs to know how easy it was to pull together! I think that the part that took me the longest was deciding on colours.

Cutieasaurus…MFT Stamps!

Saturday, February 1st, 2020

Hello and welcome back!  Laurie with you today to share a super cute, Valentine-ish card with you.  I recently order the Cutieasaurus Stamp Set and co-ordinating dies. This is not a new set but I’ve had my eyes on it for awhile and just couldn’t resist any longer!

I created the background on a circle die cut. I used the MFT Cloud Stencil to add some clouds and blended a bit of green onto the bottom. I stamped, coloured and die cut the images from the set and adhered them to the circle using foam adhesive and liquid glue.

To add a bit more interest, I added the scene onto a Fancy Scalloped Circle die from Lawn Fawn. I used Whisper cardstock from Gina K Designs. This is one of my favourite neutral colours!

I adhered my little scene onto a white card base that I ran through with a diagonal stripe embossing folder. The sentiment comes from the Cutieasaurus set and was white heat embossed onto the same grey cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out with a banner die set.

I added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the hearts and dots of the dinos as well as a few white gel pen details.  I’m so happy with the way this card turned out. I adore this set!

Thanks for dropping in!  Have a great day and weekend!

Gina K Elegant Asters

Hi Crafty Friends, Sandi here and my inspiration today is the Gina K Elegant Asters Sepia Card.

more test

This stamp set has a beautiful selection of flowers and leaves, a fabulous butterfly and some great sentiments (although I didn’t use them for today’s card).

I used four Copic Markers to create my Sepia color for the design pieces: E41, E43, E44 and #47. Once all the images were colored, I cut them out with the coordinating dies.

more instructions

For the background, I started with a piece of Gina K Kraft card stock and die cut it with a stitched square die.
I used the Gina K Leafy Stencil and Gina K Kraft Ink with a Life Changing Brush to add a little “background noise” behind where my art pieces would go.
I also inked around the edge before mounting it to a black mat and then my 5 x 5 square top folding card base.

I repeated the stencil design lightly on the inside of the card and duplicate the mat layers as well before adding the extra art pieces. NOTE: the leaves on this one I left black and white and I really like the contrast to the Sepia flower.

I used foam squares to attach the art pieces and then added a three layered die cut sentiment.

My final embellishment, I used the Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony Black to add some interest down the left side of the card.

Here’s a short video I created walking you through the Copic Flicking technique and the sepia color for the card.
