Hello! Today I’m sharing two cards using products from the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps May release. Do you know someone who likes to go bowling? Or maybe your kids get invited to bowling birthday parties? Maybe you are just looking to make a fun card? Most of us have bowled at least once in our life and this card would bring back fun memories.
I stamped the bowling image on the background of the front of the card, then added a square layer with a popped-up balloon. But...my favorite part is the inside.
I used the Shiplap Background to make the bowling lane and the alpha dies for my sentiment.
I stamped and fussy cut the ball and pins, then added them to a simple pop-up feature. To make the pop-up, I used a 1" x 4 1/4" strip and scored it at every inch (1", 2", 3", and 4"). Then simply fold and glue the 1/4" tab to make a square. Glue one side to the inside bottom, then add adhesive and "close" the top of the card to adhere the pop up to the card front.
I had some diecut letters left over and another fun sentiment in mind, so I made another card. This one is a CAS Mini Slim card so that I could fit all the letters across the bottom. This one is 3 1/2" x 6 1/4". The ball and two pins were stamped again and popped-up. I stamped the "you're" word from the Be Unique set.
It's Ceal, here. Today I am sharing a card using our baby set Oh Baby. I found out my friend is having a girl so I made a quick baby card so when I go to the shower.
To make this card I started with a top folding white card base and a pink ink blended panel. I Used Salt Water Taffy and Worn Lipstick on my panel. I stamped out the images, colored them using Copic marker and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.
Today I am sharing a masculine card and creating them is definitely outside my comfort zone. My card features several products from the new May Release.
I created the background by cutting strips of white cardstock in various sizes and swiping two different gray inks across them. Then, I glued the strips onto another white piece of cardstock, inked up the shiplap background with a darker gray and inked up the panel with it. Afterwards, I die cut the panel, stenciled the word inspire, added the brown mesh(trimmed to the edge), matted with gray and attached to a white base.
I stamped the images with ink on 3 black, colored with alcohol markers and fussy cut out. I left my boss lady apha die in one piece instead of cutting it all apart. I cut a bunch of letters from white cardstock. I used the outlines to hold the letters while I inked them up with a dark gray ink. I assembled the card as seen using bearly arts glue as my adhesive to affix the images and letters.
Today I have a fun card for you using the Sweet N Sassy Stamp of the Month Happiness Blooms.
Using Distress Inks, I stamped Texture Tiles 1 to create a background on watercolor paper. I spritzed it a bit to give it a watercolor(y) look. I stamped the flower from Happiness Blooms over it and colored with Copic markers. It has a loose look because of the Copics on watercolor paper. To give it a more crisp look, I went back in with Polychromos pencils. I love the colors on this one. I layered it all up and there is the card. I just needed a sentiment...The sentiment strip comes from Pray Without Ceasing. It is a great encouragement card don't you think?
