Last night's Card Class & Game Night was so much fun! We played games and I shared how to create these fun cards using the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. I hope you'll join us for our next Card Class & Game Night on October 27. It's held virtually on the On Y Go! Stamping Facebook page. Register and order your card kit by October 18. On y go! Let's get stamping.
After adhere the black and white plaid from the Plaid Tidings patterned paper, I added the greeting circle using Stampin' Dimensionals. I punched the moose outline using the Moose punch from Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the greeting circle. The card front is tied with a piece of linen thread, and then, the card front is glued to a Whisper White card base. This is a great masculine birthday card idea!
Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator means that I got a flurry of handmade birthday cards for my birthday this weekend. Thank you to all of my family, friends, and fellow demos who sent me cards. They are beautiful! I thought y'all might like to see the gorgeous bouquet of cards I received. There are tons of great birthday card making ideas here! So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Masking is the perfect card making technique for creating scenes and it works fantastically with the Coming Home stamp set from the 2020 August-December Mini Catalog from Stampin' Up! I love the way this card has a neighborhood of black and white houses with the focal point colored. It would be a great housewarming card! So on y go! Let's get stamping.
I colored the house with Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. For the greeting, I used the Well Written dies and Well Said stamp set. I love how these coordinating dies and stamps work together to create dynamic greetings!
This fun fold card making idea features a pleated card front that adds a touch of elegant whimsy. This quick card design is easy once you have the right measurements. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Finishing the Drapery Fold Card Design
Adhere the folded piece of patterned paper on the piece of 5 ¼” x 4” cardstock so that the folded even edge is approximately ¾” from the top of the piece of 5 ¼” x 4” cardstock. Stamp a greeting on the strip of Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock and adhere this to the card front so that it slightly overlaps the patterned paper. Tie a ribbon around the front and adhere to your card base.
While there seems to be a lot of steps, this card is actually quite easy. And it's a fabulous way to show off that gorgeous patterned paper you've been hoarding!
Last Thursday, I shared this unique pointillism coloring technique. If you missed it, go back and check out that post to learn exactly how to do it or watch the video. I just couldn't stop the dots! Here is another card design featuring the To a Wild Rose stamp set and the 'Tis the Season 6" x 6" patterned paper. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Putting this Beautiful Card Design Together
to start, I swiped my Cherry Cobbler ink pad along the edges of my cardstock and patterned paper to created a slightly distressed edge.
I stamped the images using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Then, I used the pointillism coloring technique to color the rose using the Poppy Parade and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. For the leaves, I used Granny Apple Green and Old Olive alcohol markers. I love the way this technique really shows up on the larger flower image!
I grabbed a greeting from the All Things Fabulous stamp set, embossed it with white embossing powder on a strip of Basic Black cardstock. I trimmed the silver edge from a piece of Silver Metallic Ribbon and pulled the fine silver threads to add behind the rose by twisting them in a circle and taping them with a little piece of tape. A few rhinestone basic jewels finished the card with a little sparkle!
