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!

Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Bird Banter Birthday Card

This Stampin’ Up! 2018 Occasions Bird Banter Birthday Card was inspired by a color challenge.  One thing that help me is to lay out all my colors in a challenge and see what kind of stamp set comes to mind with that mix of colors.   I did sneak in some green and yellow for the birds, but otherwise stayed true to the inspiration photo.

Magical Day Wizard & Castle Occasions 2018

Magical Day Wizard & Castle Occasions 2018

Ready for some fairy tale fun?  Try the Magical Day Wizard & Castle Occasions 2018 from the Myths & Magic suite!  Mermaids, Dragons, knights in shining armor, unicorns, and of course, wizards!  Everything you need for a fairy-tastic fun card!

In the video I show how I made a small hole in the brick wall embossed paper this allows me to cut bricks from the inside of the card to create a “hole” in the castle wall.  The one part I forgot to show was how I made the hope your day sentiment separate.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with the coordinating framelit.  Once done I move the framelit down to separate the two parts.
