Birthday Gift Card

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I manged to get back to my stamp room, as I needed to make a birthday card and decided to make a gift card.  I ended up going to Pinterest and picked out this card to make adjusting it a bit for the supplies I had on hand.

I used some left over DSP that I had from making Joe's birthday card - Birthday Delivery.  My base card and scalloped square are Powder Pink CS with Real Red and Whisper White for the greeting and inside piece.

Card Base - 4 1/4" x 11", scored and folded at 5 1/2" and 2 1/2"
DSP Layers - 2 3/4" x 4", 2 1/4" x 4", 1" x 4"
Whisper White Layer Inside 5 1/4" x 4"

I used my Spellbinders dies for my sentiment layering and SU's BetterTogether stamp set for the sentiment.  Then I used some dimensionals and adhered down half of it on the front of my card.  For the inside, I punched a half circle with my 1" punch and then adhered down the two sides with some tearing tape.

This card came together so quick and easy!  Just what I needed.  You would never know it was almost fall here.  The temperature today is in the 80's - not that I'm complaining.

Thoughts and Prayers Card

Today's card is another one that my friend Martha brought with her this summer.  She had it all cut out and ready to go.

This was so easy to put together, but I thought is was beautiful!  She used Whisper White for the base card and layered it with another piece of  Whisper White using the embossed frame.  Her next layer of Pink Pirouette was 4 1/4" x 3" and the smaller piece of Whisper White was cut 1/8" smaller.

We used SU's Thoughts and Prayers Stamp set with Smokey Slate and put some rhinestones on the flowers and finished it off with a small butterfly.  I didn't put any sentiment on my card for awhile, and then used my Teeny Tiny Wishes to make it a Thinking of You" card.  This way I can use it for a lot of different occasions.  We have been glued to the TV watching the hurricane in Florida.  We know so many people down there and hope all is well with them.  Our Prayers and Thoughts are with them!

Kitchen Dresses Christmas Cards

I fell in love with these adorable kitchen dresses that I saw on - Running With Scissors - blog.  She made several types but I decided to make some for Christmas cards, as I'm trying to get an early start on my cards.  I used the die from  the Frantic Stamper's Kitchen Dress Design A2 Card Maker.  I loved how they turned out.

This one I used Garden Green CS for the base and some DSP for the apron layer.  It's hard to see, but the spoon and roller I used Gold Glitter paper.

For this card, I used Garden Green CS for the base and cut some DSP for the card front and apron.  I colored in the spoon and rolling pin handle with some brown marker.

For the last card, I used Christmas DSP for the card base and apron.

For the inside sentiment I used either Whisper white or Very Vanilla CS for the apron.

My stamping friend Martha and I so enjoyed playing with this die.  It reminded me of when I was a kid and played with my cut out paper dolls.  I spent many hours on hot summer days with my cousins at my Nanny's kitchen table designing paper doll outfits.  I will be playing with this die a lot more!  We are preparing for a hurricane here on the East coast.  Hopefully, it won't be as bad as the one that hit Texas.  Have a good week!
