One Wild Ride Masculine grunge card

One Wild Ride Masculine grunge card

Hello all, I just wanted to share my really easy One Wild Ride Masculine grunge card today!  There’a a couple simple tips in the video tutorial that I hope you like as well!

The Very Vanilla card base is A2 cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The top Crumb Cake cardstock layer is cut at .25″ x 4″, and the Wood Textures DSP is cut at 1 1/8″ x 4″.  Stamp the Motorcycle image in Night of Navy and the grunge spatter in Crumb Cake ink.  Use the Banner Triple Punch to easily flag the end.  Also flag the end of the Burlap ribbon and the Very Vanilla 1/2″ strip with the stamped sentiment.  Layer these and attach to the card front.

Attach the Night of Navy paper “brad” using the fine tip glue pen, and then cover the “brad with fine tip glue to make it “shiny”.  Remember to stamp your envelope for a finished look!

Oh my goodness!  I love this Bubble Over Fun Background card!  Talk about a quick and simple Stampin’ Up! card idea!  No die cuts, no punches, just ink, paper, and a few pretty bling!  

Yes, I did cut my sentiment in half so I could make a long horizontal phrase 🙂  No worries though, i can still use it both ways and often a cut like this increases your versatility so much!  Don’t be afraid to experiment!

One quick tip for creating a background like this is to test your colors first to see if you need to stamp off and where that would look great.  Another thing I keep in mind is to stamp larger shapes in the lighter colors and smaller in the darkest.  This way you can get more of a layered look!

Stampin’ Up! Southern Serenade Birthday card

Stampin' Up! Southern Serenade Birthday card

I love the simplicity of this Stampin’ Up! Southern Serenade Birthday card.  Today is full of simple cardmaking tips like creating a spatter background using aqua painters and tying a loop knot from 1 piece of ribbon.  

For today I wanted to focus on a really quick and easy card with some very simple and fast coloring.  I love all the paper in the Petal Garden DSP paper stack and I found the perfect coordinating frame for the Southern Serenade focal flower!

The spatter background is a look I love and is so easy to create.  When holding the ink pad squeeze the top and the bottom together.  This puts ink in the lid.  Then use an aqua painter pen to pick up the ink and tap the painter over your paper to create the spatter look!
