Fun Layered Birthday Card

Hello, and Happy Birthday, if it’s your birthday! It’s not mine, but I just received a box of new stamps and dies from A Jillian Vance Design and I couldn’t wait to play with them.

This card is up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today – I have the full tutorial there.

Flourishes Birthday Card Tutorial

I promised the instructions on the card I made for the Flourishes Birthday Blog Hop yesterday. Thank you Flourishes for the invitation to be a part of your blog hop!

I would have added the instructions to that post, but a combination of computer problems, some not so great photos, dentist appointments and a rugby parent meeting cut my time short, oh and that thing called work, which involves the not so productive computer.

Lets go going!  I mentioned my supply list,  Worldwin Paper, Clearsnap ink and Bits of Bling, SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares and MyStik™ and a bit of twine!  I used Spellbinders™  LF-168 Grand Large LabelsS4-324 Ribbon Banners and S5-028 Nested Pennants.

I started with a Shaped Card base, made by folding 12×12″ cardstock in  half, aligning the fold line just below the cut edge of Grand Large Labels #5 (#1 is the smallest in the set).  I cut the shaped card base.

Next I taped the Grand Large Labels #4 to the card base, nesting it inside of the #5 die template.  I embossed this in the Grand Calibur™, and that’s how I achieved the second embossed line around the edges.

I cut/embossed with the #3 die template with white and lighter purple paper for the front and side of the card.  On the light purple front I stamped with one of the border stamps.

On the white-inside I stamped with one of the sentiments and floral images.

For the banner on the front, I stamped the plaid images and cut/embossed with the ribbon piece from Nested Pennants.  For the Ribbon Banners, I curved the stamp to match the curve of the die cut.

I used 3D Foam Squares to mount the Ribbon Banner to the front of the card.  I also used them to attach the twine to the Pennant, and then to the card, so they had a dimensional look.  I added some bling and it’s done!

And the finished card again,

Thank you again for stopping by!  Next week I’m in the Spellbinders Bunny Hop,

 I’ll post that schedule next!


Flourishes Birthday Pennants Blog Hop!

When Flourishes first laid eyes on two of the brand new die template sets from Spellbinders, they just knew that they needed a stamp set to coordinate with these funky and fresh dies templates! Are you ready to take a peek?

This fun set just screams celebration and offers 6 different pennants and flags all designed to coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders S5-028 Nested Pennants and S5-029 Lacey Nested Pennants. There are also 9 sentiments and 8 accents in the set that you can use to deck out your pennant shapes in fun and different ways!

Want a little more to coordinate with your cards? How about our new Strips and Stripes background set? This set offers three strips to use together as one background or separate as three different strips that coordinate with the Birthday Pennants set!

  I’ve been crazy busy, but I promise to post the instructions and step shots  and inside tomorrow.  I did an easy technique to get the double embossed frame around the card. So gather up your Worldwin Paper, Clearsnap ink and Bits of Bling, SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares and MyStik™ and a bit of twine!  I used LF-168 Grand Large Labels and S4-324 Ribbon Banners too!

 Because Flourishes just knew this set was a match made in heaven with the Spellbinder’s Pennant Dies, we asked some of their ever-so-talented designers to join the Flourishes team for a little show and tell! Make sure to hop on over and see…

Dick Blick Demo, etc

While I sitting here waiting for the carpet cleaners to show up, supposely sometime between an hour ago and forever, I need to belly up and post. No silly, I don’t have new art to show off (this week) but its been a busy month and I do have an announcement:

I’ll be demoing Copic Markers this Sunday, May 3 from noon to 2pm at the Dick Blick Wheaton, IL store! Come on out and say hi! Let me know if you would be interested in a Copic class.

In other news, Cindy and the rest of the family had a delightful Easter. The Bunny brought her a nice little basket of goodies. Cindy loves cookies and bunnies, in no particular order.

I celebrated my 29th birthday again this month too. Cake was had by all, and some had more cake than others, right Spunky?

I traveled for Spellbinders twice in April, I met some great people at CKC St. Louis, we taught for 2 days. I also traveled to a trade event in San Francisco, I didn’t get to see the city, but it was a beautiful weekend on the Bay!

Then I got a magazine in the mail.
Hmm, that’s strange, I don’t have a subscription to the Stampers Sampler Catch Up Issue. What’s this? An art comp? Good golly, I’ve been published! They love me, they really love me! Ok, maybe they don’t love me, but they like me enough for page 14 at the top! Thanks Stampington!!!

And a series of these appeared when I downloaded photos. Strange, I’ve never seen this happen in real life, must have been some kind of homework assignment…Now that I know you can do it, Sparky, its going to be a long summer! buhahaha!

Craft Fancy

I’m heading off to Craft Fancy today, I’ll be demoing the Wizard and Spellbinders Dies, including the new Nestabilities and Impressabilities! I’ll be working along side Michelle of Crafty Secrets.

Happy Birthday to Spunky! He’s up early and ready for presents. Cinnamon rolls are in the oven.

Have a great day!
