Watercolor Words Birthday Card

Hi Stampers,
Take a look at this weeks DOstamper Thursday DSC#198 Product Spotlight Challenge!  This is a fast and simple Birthday Card that is brought to life with the use of the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape and some background stamping using the Watercolor Words Photopolymer Stamp Set




The   Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape is so much fun to use, and brings instant colors to your card!  Just a little Whisper White Bakers Twine and a few Candy Dots and you have a cute and fast Birthday Card.


The finishing touch was to make a Custom Matching Envelope Liner using the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Envelope Punch Board..

Horizontal Fold Fruit Stand Card - DSC#196

Hi Stampers,
Here is my card for this weeks DOstamper Thursday DSC#196 Color My World Challenge! The colors for this weeks challenge were amazing to work with!  All of the colors from this weeks challenge can be found in the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.  A Horizontal Card Fold is a cute and easy fold design that creates a pocket on the front of the card. I used that pocket to insert a note card into it. You can also use the pocket to add money or a gift card to the card too!  As you can see, I used the Tag Topper Scalloped Punch and attached it to the note card for quick removal of the note card.

The Pear Pizzazz Cardstock cardbase was cut @ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and scored @ 1-1/4" and 4-1/4".    The Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper pieces were cut @ 5-1/4" x 2-3/4 and 5-1/4" x 1".  The  Whisper White Cardstock note card inside was cut @ 4" x 5".
I used my Envelope Punch Board to round off the corners.

For the birthday banner, I stamped Happy Birthday using the Birthday Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set and Watermelon Wonder Ink, then cut it out using the Bunch Of Banners Framelits Dies.

I cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock  @ 2" x 3" and punched it out top with the Tag Topper Scalloped Punch, then used Tear & Tape Adhesive to attach to the top of the note card. The final touch was to add the cute Peekaboo Peach 3/8" (1 Cm) Ruched Ribbon and bow. 

As you know, I always make my own Custom Envelopes and Custom Envelope Liners so they all match my cards using the Envelope Punch Board.  The stripes for the liner were done using the Draw The Line Photopolymer Stamp Set (retired)  The finishing touch was to add the little tie with the Twine Baker's Whisper White on the ribbon tab.


Always love to hear you comments on the card!

Lots of Love - DSC#195 Challenge Card

Hi Stampers,
Here is my take on this weeks DOstamper Thursday DSC#195 Sketch Pad Challenge!  I LOVED this challenge!  I was dying to use those Lady Bugs from the Love You Lots Hostess Stamp Set, and this layout worked perfectly to be able to do that. The large polka dots on the red layer was done with the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder it really gives the card the dimension that the background layer needed.



The Lady Bugs were placed onto the squares cut from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and given dimension with the Stampin Dimensionals. The cute black and white DSP was from the Pop Of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper.  For my banner,  I stamped  Happy Birthday using the Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set and then cut out using the Bunch Of Banners Framelits Dies.



As you know, I always make my own Custom Envelopes and Custom Envelope Liners to match all of my cards using the Envelope Punch Board.  Adding the stripes for the liner just made the card.   The finishing touch was to add the little bow with the retired Whisper White 1/4" Cotton Ribbon.

Always love to hear you comments on the card!
