POPPY BUNDLE - THANK YOU CARD


Hello, welcome back everyone!
Today I have a special Thank You card to share with you all,
Today’s card was created using stamps from Unity Stamp Company.
 
Today’s card I made for Andrea Garvick, the director of customer services at Unity,
Andrea has gone above and beyond helping me over the last few months and I just wanted
to send her a little something to let her know all her help has been tremendously appreciated.


I started off by making an A2 top folding card out of Trophee Board White Linen cardstock,
Using my We R Memory Keepers Trim & Score Board to do all my trimming and paper scoring.
 
For the focal image on today's card I’ve used the gorgeous little Poppy Bundle Itty Bitty Stamp Kit,
I stamped the poppy flowers onto my card front using Versamark ink and then sprinkled the image
with Rangers Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder before heat embossing the image with my heat tool
 
While I had everything out I also heat embossed the poppy flower bundle onto the back flap of a
Whisper White C6 Envelope, using Rangers Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder again to add a nice touch.
 
 
The little Thank You sentiment comes from the Best Fishes Stamp kit, I masked off the bottom half of the
sentiment to just have the words “Thank You”, I've stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink onto my
Basic Black sentiment strip before heat embossing it with Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder.
 
To assemble the card I adhered the sentiment stripe over the middle of the poppy flower bundle,
adhering the strip down with a Foam Adhesive Strip to give the card some dimension and depth.
 
I wanted to keep this card design minimal with a lot of open white space but I felt it just needed
another small embellishment, so I added three Doodlebug Designs Beetle Black Enamel Dots
around the focal image.
 
 
This card looks so pretty in real life with that gorgeous Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder,
I hope Andrea likes her little gift I got her and this sparkly gold thank you card.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

SPOOKY FUN - HALLOWEEN CARD SET

 
Hello, Happy Friday everyone!
Today I’m excited to share a set of Halloween cards that I made,
Today’s cards feature the awesome Spooky Fun Photopolymer Bundle again.
 
This set of cards is quick and easy to make and would make a perfect gift,
A very minimal card design with a lot of white space, but still eye catching!

 
I started off by making eight A2 top folding cards out of Trophee Board White Linen cardstock,
Using my We R Memory Keepers Trim & Score Board to do all my trimming and paper scoring.
 
I then stamped my sentiments using the Stampin’ Up! Spooky Fun Photopolymer Stamp Set,
stamping four cards with “Happy Halloween” and four with “Trick Or Treat”, using Memento
Tuxedo Black Ink.

 
For the four “Happy Halloween” cards I took the awesome moon from the stamp set and
stamped the moon above each sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, slightly offsetting
the moon to the left of the sentiment as I stamped.
 
Using the coordinating Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies from the bundle, I then die cut out
two bats and witches, using some retired Stampin' Up! Black Glimmer Paper from last year’s
Holiday Catalogue.
 
I then adhered the bats and witches to each card base, using Best Creation Small Square
Foam Tape Dots, slightly overlapping the stamped moon as I placed them onto the cards.

 
Lastly I adhered three Studio Calico Wood Veneer Tiny Stars around each moon image,
adhering the Tiny Stars with a small amount of Tombow Mono Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
 
For the four “Trick Or Treat” cards I stamped a few extra elements onto the card bases,
I used the adorable set of three ghosts above two of the sentiments, and stamped two
solid little bats that are in the stamp set above the last two Trick Or Treat sentiments,
stamping everything in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
 
Next I stamped two tombstones in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Basic Gray Cardstock,
and two sets of pumpkins in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Pumpkin Pie Cardstock, I’ve
then used the coordinating dies to die cut each image out - super quick and easy!

 
Again I adhered the pumpkins and tombstones to each card base, using small
Best Creation Square Foam Tape Dots, giving each card that pop of dimension.
 
As a finishing touch I added some Clear Wink Of Stella to the stamped bats,
This just gave these two cards a bit of sparkle and some added interest.

 
A set of eight cards that were super quick and easy to make!
I hope you like these minimal, but super cute Halloween cards.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
