New Home

Today I made another card using the SAB "You Brighten My Day" stamp set.  This time the little house stamp was used to make a New Home card.
Again, I used a lot of the SAB products to make this card.

The base card is Coastal Cabana, lined with Whisper White, and then Best Year Ever DSP (SAB).  This paper reminds me so much of the Bokeh technique that is so popular right now.

Just a little more than half way down, the tree outline from the stamp set "Wood You Be Mine?" was stamped with Old Olive ink all the way across.  Just below that a strip of Old Olive cardstock embossed with the Chevron folder was attached.

Three houses were stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock with Memento ink.  They were coloured with blendabilities - two with just Crumb Cake, and the third (the new house) was coloured with Crumb Cake, Coastal Cabana, and Daffodil Delight.  All the houses were cut out.  The two crumb cake houses were glued  side by side with a space between them, with the bottom of the houses touching the Old Olive strip.

A piece of ribbon from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack (coastal cabana) was added to the top of the seam line of the Old Olive piece, slightly covering the base of the houses.  The third house was added between and below the other 2 houses using dimensionals.

The sentiment was computer generated, punched with the small oval punch and matted with the Modern Word Label punch.

You Brighten My Day

Sale-a-bration is in full swing, and the stamp set and DSP I used are free with an order of $60.00 or more.
"You Brighten my Day" - isn't that what friends are all about?

The image was stamped with Memento ink onto White cardstock.  Then coloured with blendabilites - Daffodil Delight.  It was punched with the 1 3/4" circle punch, and layered with a Daffodil Delight die from the Circles framelit using dimensionals. It was then attached to a Coastal Cabana  window die cut using the Windows framelit.

The base card is Coastal Cabana, layered with Whisper White, and then You Brighten My Day DSP (SAB).  A smaller piece of the same DSP was matted with Soft Suede cardstock, and attached to the card, with a strip of Soft Suede laying across it.  The Soft Suede piece was embossed with the Decorative Dots Embossing folder and a piece of Coastal Cabana ribbon (part of the Best Year Ever  accessory pack  SAB) spanned across it.  I also made a ribbon from it and attached it to the right side of the card.
The buttons are also from the SAB accessory pack.

Boys will be boys - Technostamper #351

My grandson's birthday is one day after Valentine's day, although this is not the card I am sending him.   Mark is a very talented hockey player and plays for 2 teams.  He lives, eats, and breathes hockey, so if I didn't make a hockey card he won't even look at it.  Of course I made him a card with that sport on it!!
However, I was inspired to make some other children's cards.
Today I used the sketch with Technostamper here to make my first of many children's card (I hope)
I use the stamp set :"Boys will be Boys"

 
 
I wanted to use mainly primary colours for this card, so after stamping the image with Memto ink, it was coloured with yellows, blues, greens and reds (blendabilities)
The corners of the image panel were rounded using the corner rounder punch, and added to a Night of Navy striped DSP from the Painted Petals pack.
The sentiment was black embossed on vellum.  I chose vellum so that the image behind would not be hidden.  It is attached using glue dots, and I use brights candy dots to hide these dots.

At the bottom,  a piece of black chevron ribbon is wrapped.
