  • Dad’s Tie



    Need some Dad card ideas? This new Shirt & Tie die set is sure to fit the bill! Pick Dad’s favorite colors & put it all together. Pick a greeting from the Dad Phrases set and you’re all set. 

    For the Inspiration Challenge (IC964) we are visiting a shop called Miss Jophiel & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS to use as my inspiration. I really liked the sky blue w/ the yellow flowers.

    To make my card, I die cut a piece of sky blue w/ the second largest stitched rectangle die then cut it again w/ a herringbone patterned piercing die. I love the texture this gives for a plain background. The shirt front, collars & pocket were cut out of lt yellow & the tie was cut out of a piece of Tropical Dreams paper. My dad would have loved this. He liked yellow & he loved tropical prints. The white background was cut w/ the largest stitched rectangle & for the greeting, I used an off set tag. I stamped it, then ran it half way thru the die cutting machine, turned the die & paper around & cut the other end w/ the flag points to have each end the same. The tie, pocket & collar points were popped up for dimension.

    Thanks

  • Fire Hazard


    A fun, easy birthday card for just about anyone. This new set has a lot of fun “firemen” and funny birthday greetings and the matching dies make it quick.

    Congrats to Jennifer, the newest Featured Stamper (FS899)! She has a super fun gallery & I chose THIS card to case. The angled layout really grabbed my attention, so I kept that & the birthday theme. I used different images, dies, colors & papers.

    My card is really simple. I colored & die cut the cute images, then found some bright paper to go with it. I only used one piece of printed paper then added the blue & pink strips. The greeting was added to the pink strip, the two images were popped up & I added a few rhinestones above the cake.

    Here are the Copics I used:

  • Birthday Butterflies


    A birthday card sure to brighten a special someone’s day! All colors of the rainbow adorn the stenciled stripe strip & are continued in the trio of fancy butterflies. Touches of black make the colors pop!

    A big congrats to Beth, the newest Featured Stamper (FS897)! She has a super gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the birthday & butterflies theme, but I used different images, colors & dies, stenciled the stripes instead of using designer paper, and added some narrow black framing.

    My rainbow bright card started w/ the stenciled strip. I used almost every color of ink in the Color Fuse series, a distressed stripe stencil and some detail brushes. I used parts of a scallop rectangle frame die to border the strip & help it stand out. The fancy butterflies were colored & die cut w/ their coordinating dies. I used a little foam to pop them up. I liked this particular birthday greeting for its tall letters and graphic look. To me, it paired well w/ the stripes above it.

    A narrow black layer was added behind the main panel to tie it all together.
    Here are the Copics I used on the butterflies:
