Beautiful You

Beautiful You

The Beautiful You stamp set allows us to make beautiful cards for the ladies in our lives.  For this birthday card, I stamped the same silhouette image on a piece of polka dot paper from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  It didn’t take long to cut out the dress and the hat with my Paper Snips and glue them over the image stamped on the front layer.

Measurements and Instructions:

  1. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Basic Black Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the card base.
  3. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″.  Place in the Stamparatus and place the lady stamp and the greeting stamp where desired.  Use Memento Black Ink to stamp both of the images at the same time.  Note:  This is a great way to make a number of cards in a short time!
  4. Use Memento Black Ink to stamp the lady image on a Black & White side of Botanical Butterfly DSP.  Use Paper Snips to cut out the dress and the hat.  Use Liquid Multipurpose Glue to attach to the image on the Whisper White layer.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the Basic Black layer.
  5. Make a small bow with the Black/Silver Striped Ribbon.  Attach with a Glue Dot.

Just a Note from a Rooster

Just a Note from a Rooster

I’m sure there are lots of people on your “friends list” who would love to get Just a Note from a Rooster!  Isn’t he just the cutest rooster you’ve ever seen?  The Home to Roost stamp set is another one that is available for FREE during the 2019 Sale-A-Bration season.  I was excited to share this design with the ladies who recently attended my “Black & White Card Class”.  Some decided to colour the entire rooster while I was happy to only add a bit of Real Red that you see in this photo.

Here are the measurements & Instructions:

  1. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Basic Black Cardstock at 3″ x 4″.  Use Big Shot and Tin Tile Embossing Folder to add a design.
  3. Cut Botanical Butterfly DSP at 2-1/4″ x 4″.  Attach to the bottom of the embossed black piece with a small piece of tape.  Wrap the front of the seam with Black Satin Ribbon.  Attach the completed layer to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  4. Cut Silver Foil Cardstock with Scallop Oval Framelit and the Big Shot.
  5. Stamp the rooster on Whisper White Cardstock.  Cut the image out with the Oval Framelit and the Big Shot.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach over the Silver Foil Oval.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the front of the card.
  6. Use Black Memento Ink to stamp the greeting on a piece of 1/2″ x 3″ Whisper White Cardstock.  Snip to the required length with Paper Snips.  Use Mini Dimensionals to attach to the card front.

Here is a similar card – this one has the silver & rooster oval placed near the edge of the card base.

Let me know which one you like the best.
