Valentine Cards Received

Now that “Love Day” has passed for another year, I want to share a couple of special cards that arrived in my mailbox recently!  I mailed all of the Valentine cards I had without taking any pictures – 😞!

So, for this time, I’m going to share these cards received from friends.  Each card has a caption indicating who deserves the credit.

Pedal to the Metal

Pedal to the Metal

When your Grandson is celebrating his birthday and he owns a blue Razr like this one, I just knew that I had to make this card for him!  He loves getting muddy as he “rides the trails” and I’m sure he has often had the “Pedal to the Metal”!!

This stamp set is made for a variety of outdoor activities so I’m sure that I’ll be using it for another masculine (and maybe feminine!) card!  Included are stamps for a truck and a motorcycle so when combined with textured embossing folders or Designer Series Paper (DSP) the possibilities are endless!

Here are the products used:

  3. Use Big Shot and Stone Embossing Folder from the Power of Hope Bundle to add a design.  Before running this layer through the Big Shot, wipe Smoky Slate Classic Ink over the inside front (the side with Stampin’ Up! logo on it).  This will add some colour to the embossed layer.
  4. Use Memento Black Ink to stamp the ATV on Whisper White Cardstock.  With a pencil, trace the shape of the ATV – cut out with Paper Snips.

  8. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach to the Pretty Peacock layer.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the completed greeting to the card.

Quilted Birthday Card

Quilted Birthday Card

I found this Quilted Birthday Card on Lisa’s Stamp Studio – thanks for sharing your card!  I am a “quilter” and I know a lot of other crafters who are as well so it was natural for me to make a card like this!  Lisa’s card didn’t use the Pressed Petals Washi Tape but I happened to have this Washi Tape so I decided to use it.  I like how it makes a flower, don’t you?

These are the products used for this card:

You can see more details and order for your stash by clicking on the image or the description.

These are the sizes and instructions:

  1. Cut Rococo Rose 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 Very Vanilla Cardstock at 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″.  Attach to card base with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut Pear Pizzazz Cardstock at 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. Cut 4 pieces of DSP at 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ – cut 2 of these squares diagonally.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the triangles along each side of the Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.
  4. Cut Rococo Rose Cardstock at 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″.  Use Big Shot and Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add a design.
  5. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach two 1-1/4″ DSP squares to the embossed Rococo Rose square.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach over the Pear Pizzazz layer.
  6. Use Rococo Rose Classic Ink to stamp the greeting from the Itty Bitty Greeting stamp set on a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock.  Use the Classic Label Punch to cut it out.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the front of the card base.

Diagonal Cross Over Fun Fold Card

Diagonal Cross Over Fun Fold Card

Thank you to Jo-Anne Rogers, my friend & fellow demonstrator, for sharing her talents in her video showing how this card is made!  I have tried to itemize the steps so you can create one for yourself.  If that doesn’t make sense or you need more help, please watch Jo-Anne’s video – she explains it so well!

Even though this card requires the use of 1 full sheet of cardstock, the resulting creation is well worth it and I’m sure anyone receiving it will feel extra special.  Just imagine using any of the many Designer Series Papers that Stampin’ Up! has – the possibilities are endless!

These are the products used to make this card:

To see more details or to order some for your supply, click on the picture or the description.

Now for the measurements and instructions:

  1. Score a sheet of Mossy Meadow Cardstock at 5-1/2″ – Cut sheet at 4-1/4″.
  2. On each piece of cardstock, cut a triangle off from the line that was scored to the opposite corner.  Fold on the score line.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to glue the 2 pieces of cardstock together making sure there is a triangle pointing out to either side.
  3. Cut Brightly Gleaming DSP at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Cut diagonally so you can use a different side on each triangle piece of cardstock.
  4. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to glue DSP to the cardstock.  Decide which design you want to be on top of the cross over.  Being careful to only apply glue along the edge, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to glue each cardstock triangle to the card base.
  5. Cut Mossy Meadow Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 3-3/4″.  Cut Very Vanilla Copper Classic Ribbon to have a piece showing “Merry Christmas”. Place a length of Tear & Tape along the upper right-hand edge of the Mossy Meadow Cardstock.  Fold the length of ribbon in half – lay over the Tear & Tape – add another piece of Tear & Tape.  This will make it easier to pull out this layer with your greeting on it!
  6. Cut Very Vanilla Cardstock at 5-1/8″ x 3-5/8″.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach over the ribbon on the Mossy Meadow cardstock.  The border is thinner than usual.
  7. Stamp the greeting from the Winter Woods stamp set using Versamark Ink. Sprinkle with Copper Embossing Powder.  Melt the powder with the Heat Tool.  Cut out with the Big Shot and a Stitched Nested Label Die.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to a Mossy Meadow Stitched Nested Label Die shape that was cut out with the Big Shot.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the front of the card making sure that they don’t stick to the inside layer.

Red Eyed Christmas Moose

Red Eyed Christmas Moose

I love this Christmas Moose and I was so disappointed to hear that the coordinating punch was discontinued!  So, to make the best of a sad situation, I decided I would still use the stamp set for my workshop and show how a gorgeous card can be created without the punch!  I love how it turned out, don’t you?  Of course I had to have some bling somewhere so I decided to give him a “Blood Shot Red Eye” – do you like it?

These are the products I used to make this card.

  3. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 3-1/2″ x 2-3/4″.  Using the “stamp off” technique with Mossy Meadow Classic Ink create a row of trees across the cardstock.  Use Big Shot and Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the trees layer.  Attach to the Pinewood Planks layer with Snail Adhesive.
  4. Cut Real Red Cardstock at 1/2″ x 5-1/4″.  Attach over the lower edge of the “trees” on the Pinewood Planks layer with Snail Adhesive. Trim if need be.
  5. Use Early Espresso Classic Ink to stamp the moose outline on Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Use Big Shot and Stitched Shaped Dies to cut out the moose layer.  Use the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to colour the moose antlers.
  6. Use Big Shot and Layering Oval Dies to cut out a Pretty Peacock layer to mount with Snail Adhesive to the back of the moose layer.
  7. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the completed moose layer over the Real Red 1/2″ strip of cardstock.
  8. Use Real Red Classic Ink to stamp the greeting on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Use Big Shot and Layering Oval Dies to cut out the greeting.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the front of the card.
  9. Use Real Red Classic Ink to stamp the desired greeting on the inside layer of Whisper White Cardstock cut at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the inside of the card base.
