Valentine Card


Hello Friends!

Today, I'm sharing a pretty card that my dear friend (Kathy Pearce), and member of my team sent to George and I for Valentine's Day.  The colors she chose coordinate with the All My Love Designer Series Paper which is absolutely beautiful.  I love how she embossed the Balmy Blue layer with the Subtles Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder which gives the layer a linen look and is just enough to bring out the beauty of the All My Love Designer Series Paper.

The hearts were cut out with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies that coordinates with the Meant To Be Stamp Set.   The small Soft Sea Foam and Flirty Flamingo hearts were colored with the clear Wink Of Stella to make them sparkle, and was popped up with a Stampin' Dimensional. 

The Balmy Blue Organdy Ribbon that she used comes from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack that you can earn for FREE from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure with a $50 order.  

The organdy ribbon combo pack consists of 5 different colors  - 5 yards of each; (Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist) and for this card,  she used Balmy Blue ribbon and wrapped it around the two top layers.



The inside is very simple with just the sentiment and a piece of coordinating All My Love Designer Series Paper.  I believe Kathy used a couple of sentiments from retired stamp sets.

However, the Meant To Be Stamp Set has Valentine sentiments that will work very nicely on this card, and the sentiments in this set can be used all year long with the exception of just one stamp that says:  Happy Valentine's Day.

Measurements:
Soft Sea Foam Card Base - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
Balmy Blue Embossed Layer - 4" x 5 1/4"
All My Love Designer Series Paper - 2 1/2" x 5 1/4" and inside - 3/4" x 5 1/4"
Flirty Flamingo for Fancy & Stitched Hearts - 3" x 4"
Soft Sea Foam for Large and Small Heart - 4" x 4 1/2"
Whisper White Inside Layer - 4" x 5 1/4"
Balmy Blue Organdy Ribbon from the Combo Pack - approximately 6"

This is a very pretty card and a quick/easy one to make.  Kathy did an awesome job, and we love it.  Thank you Kathy for thinking of us for Valentine's Day.

Masculine Monday - Geared Up Garage


Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  I know I certainly did.  The weather here in Massachusetts has been extremely good for this time of the year.  We actually had a couple days in the mid 50s and 60s, so we can't complain.  So far, it's an extremely mild winter for us and I hope I don't jinx us.

It seems we all struggle to make masculine cards and what makes it easy is when we have masculine stamps to choose from.  In the Occasions Catalog, we have a few masculine stamps, and I just got one of them on Friday, so I'm sharing a card  I designed using the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set and Garage Thinlits Dies.

I tried something a little different with this card and at first, I wasn't sure if it was going to work, but it worked just fine.

I stamped the car from the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set with Staz-On Black Ink onto a piece of Silver Foil Sheet and let it dry really good before cutting it with the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies.  I know it may be difficult to see the shine from the silver foil but in person, it looks really good.  It's definitely a shiny silver car.

The Silver Foil car is popped up on a black foil oval that I cut out from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  The Black Foil Sheets were carried over from the Holiday Catalog.

The background on the Real Red cardstock was stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black Ink with a stamp from the One Wild Ride Stamp Set.  The black check paper is from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  The key is from the Classic Garage Metal Elements that is one of the products in the Classic Garage Suite as is the  Striped Metallic Ribbon that I used  to tie the key and to wrap the ribbon around the card.  




The inside sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set and was stamped in Tuxedo Memento Black Ink as was the background on the card.  A strip of the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper pulls it all together.

Measurements:
Basic Black Card Base - 51/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
Real Red Front and Inside Layers - 4" x 5 1/4"
Botanical Butterfly Designer4 Series Paper - 2 1/2" x 4"
Silver Foil for the Car - 2" x 3 1/2" 
Black Foil for the Stitched Oval - 2" x 3 1/2"
Real Red Strip for Label - 1 3/4" x 3 5/16"
Silver Foil Strip for Label - 1 7/8" x 3 5/16"
Striped Metallic Ribbon  approximately 6"

I hesitated in getting this stamp set, but I'm glad I got it.   I really like this card, and I'll be using this set along with the other products in the Classic Garage Suite to make more masculine cards that I will feature in the coming weeks.   My husband had a car that looked similar to this one (different color) back in the 60s, so this card is for  MY CLASSIC HUBBY!
