Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

 

Welcome to a Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. Our theme this week is Yellow Submarine. Now in order for you to understand what I did with my card,  I first have to show you the stamp set so I can explain. I used the Soar Confidently stamp set:



Take note of the blimp image in the lower right-hand corner. Take that image and flip it upside-down and what do you get? You get a submarine! A yellow submarine:




I decided to also go monochromatic with the addition of black on my card.
I love that our Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon will be back in our new catalog!



Card Recipe:
  • Card Base: So Saffron Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4". 
  • Layer #2: Basic White Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base. 
  • Layer #3: True Love Designer 4-3/4" x 3-1/2". Use a Blending Brush to add So Saffron Ink the the whole piece. Glue to card front. 
  • Layer #4: Basic White Cardstock cut with the Layering Ovals Dies 3-5/8" long. Glue to card front, centered. 
  • Ribbon: Wrap the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the card front and tie into a bow at the left side. 
  • Layer #5: Stamp the blimp image upside-down on Basic White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Cut with the Layering Ovals Dies 3-1/8" long. Add So Saffron Ink on the bottom half using Blending Brushes. Glue over the first oval using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Layer #6: Stamp the sentiment on Basic White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut with the smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies. Glue to the right of the ovals using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Bling: Add Matte Black Dots to the background near the sentiment.

Sealed With A Kiss with Split Panel & Two Orientations!



Do you like creating cards have lots of white space and look clean? That's what I did with both of these cards. I have the same exact layout for both, but one is portrait and one is landscape. I also used VersaMark Ink sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder on the stamp images on all of the strips. 




You can view all of my photos first,
and then you can view my video!

Inside Gift Card Holder using the Gift Wrapped Bundle!



Today's project uses a retired bundle but because the inside of the card is so neat, I still wanted to post it for you because you can use your own stamp set to decorate the front of your card. I wanted to show you all of the steps so you could try this out!


This is what the inside of my card looks like:




Follow along!
Step 1: Cut a cardstock piece to measure 11" x 5-1/2". Score in the center at 5-1/2". 
Score again at 4-1/4". Turn the cardstock to the opposite end and score again at 4-1/4:




Step 2: Fold on the score lines to form a mountain fold in the center:




Step 3: Place a gift card over the mountain fold and add tick marks with
a pencil about 1/4" on each side of the gift card. You want the hole to be larger
than the gift card. Use the Classic Label Punch lined up to the first pencil
mark and half-way on the scored line like you see in the photo below and punch:




Step 4: Slide the punch over to the next pencil mark and line up with 
the first slot that was punched to make a longer slot:




Step 5: Open the fold in the center and this is what the slot should look like:




Step 6: Add Tear & Tape to the bottom of one side:




Step 7: Peel the backing of the Tear & Tape and press the two sides together.
Insert the gift card in the slot and finish the inside and front of the card.

Faker Shaker Card using Pampered Pets, Pets Dies and Playful Pets Designer Paper!



Before I get into all of the details about today's project, I have some good news about the Pampered Pets stamp set and Pets Dies that I used today. Both products are carrying over into our new Annual Catalog on May 1st! 


So what exactly is a Faker Shaker Card? The card front layer is created first and then wrapped with a Clear Medium Envelope but before sealing the envelope, add the shaker components. In this case I used our Sequins For Everything. You can see how the sequins can loosely be shook around:




I stamped the dog and cat image on Basic White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Stampin' Blends Markers. I love the addition of the Playful Pets Trinkets which are retiring soon. Doesn't it look cute on the dog's collar?





Card Layers:
  • Card Base: Cinnamon Cider Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4". 
  • Layer #2: Cinnamon Cider Cardstock 5-1/2" x 4-1/4". Set aside.
  • Layer #3: Playful Pets Designer Paper 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to layer #2. Stamp the sentiment above the halfway point and to the right using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Slide the layer into a Clear Medium Envelope. Add the sequins to the inside front. Seal the envelope. Fold any extra clear envelope sides to the back and add tape to secure to the back. Glue layer to card front. 
  • Layer #4: Cinnamon Cider Cardstock 5-1/4" x 1-1/2". Emboss using and embossing folder of your choice and glue to card front below the sentiment.
  • Pets: Stamp the pets images on Basic White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and color with Stampin' Blends Markers. Cut with the dies and glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Bling: Add a Playful Pets Trinkets to the dog's collar.
