#SU! Artistically Inked Birthday Card

 


When the new catalog was first previewed, I fell in love with this suite of products! A little outside my usual style, but I just love how the colors and the artistic flair all come together. When I needed to make some In-Color swaps and send my monthly team handmade cards out, this is what I decided upon.


It looks quite a bit more involved than it really is. To be honest, the most time consuming thing about this card is cutting the gold foil leaf from the Artistic Dies!

Measurements:

Polished Pink 8-1/2"x11" cardstock: 5-1/2"x8-1/2" & scored along the 8-1/2" side at 4-1/4"; 4"x5-1/4"
Expressions In Ink 12"x12" Specialty DSP: 2"x5"
Gold Foil Sheets: 2"x3"
Basic White 8-1/2"x11" cardstock: 4"x5-1/4"; 2-3/4" x 5"; 1/2"x3" (can use little extra from cutting the inside layers)

Here's a step-by-step video I put together showing how to make this beautiful card:

#Quick Triple DSP Panel Card

This card layout was one that I put together for the May stamp club meeting; a simple layout that is so quick to put together and one that can be varied by simply changing out the Designer Series Papers, stamp set and die set or punch that you choose to use!


The Fine Art Floral Designer Series Papers are absolutely stunning! With just a change of which design that you wish to use, the entire card can change.


This print takes on a much softer feel, and if I paired it with Petal Pink instead of the Poppy Parade cardstock, it would be even softer. Maybe soft enough to use for a welcome, baby girl card!

In keeping with the same layout, I put together a video where I show you how quick and simple this layout is; all using the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper. This paper choice gives a more masculine feel. 


As promised in my video, here are the card measurements:

Basic White Thick cardstock: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" & scored at 4-1/4" along the 8-1/2" side
Basic White cardstock: scrap large enough for greeting. I used a piece 6-1/2" x 5" so I could use the Many Messages Bundle (#156272, $50.25 available only through 6/30 as a bundle)
Merry Merlot cardstock: 4" x 5-1/4"
Night of Navy cardstock: 3-7/8" x 5-1/8"
Beauty of the Earth DSP: 3-3/4" x 4-7/8"

#April 2021 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Birthday Card

 


I finally got around to opening my April 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit! 

I know that I should have done so much sooner, but well...life's been hectic. I love these fun stamps, and I will play with the rest of the kit very soon.  Every month, the Paper Pumpkin kits are worth every penny. However, if you see this post before the day closes, and you've never subscribed before, you can nab an awesome deal. Get your May kit for only $5! 

Yes, if you subscribe before end of day (and they haven't sold out of their pre-determined number of special priced kits) and you enter the code: HOMERUN0521, you will get the special! Please remember to choose Amy Taylor as your demonstrator! I send a handmade thank-you card each month that you are a subscriber, using the stamp set from the most recent kit. 

The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kits are that everything you need comes in the kit. Your first kit even comes with a stamp block that you will continue to use each subsequent month. Not a lot to collect and if you desire to build a supply of Stampin' Spots and adorable and exclusive stamps, then that's all you'll have left over. Sweet indeed!


Fun, fun! Here are the card measurements:
Melon Mambo cardstock: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"; 3/4" x 3-3/8" (for the banner)
Granny Apple Green cardstock: 5-1/4" x 4"
Basic White cardstock: 3-3/4" x 5"; 4" x 5-1/4" (inside); scrap for the watermelons

Happy stamping!
