Father's Day Cards Classes

Hi, Fellow Stampers!


My Father's Day Cards Classes are coming up next week, and I plan to hold classes. You are welcome to attend if you feel comfortable with it.  If not, I understand. Classes will be held in small groups.

For the details. You will make 3 Father's Day Cards and the cost is $15 or free with a $30 order. That also includes envelopes and printed instructions. All you need to bring are your scissors, your favorite adhesives, and a snack to share. The schedule is as follows:

Thursday, May 21st   12:00
Thursday, May 21st     5:00
Saturday, May 23rd    12:00
Sunday, May 24th       2:00

The first card uses the stamp set Best Catch and its coordinating die set Catch of the Day, which, unfortunately, both are retiring at the end of May. The floating easel technique was perfect to give the illusion of a fish jumping out of the water.

Closed view.
The next card is designed to hold a gift card. I love this book-type fold as it is perfect for inserting a gift card inside. And who doesn't love the old Woodie Station wagons from back in the day!
And, last but not least, a card for the Dad that likes to grill. The Outdoor Barbecue stamp set is the focal point of this reverse easel card. This set is also retiring at the end of May.
This is the closed-up view.

I hope you like these cards! Since classes will be small, sign up soon!

Timeless Tulips and Petal Labels for Kylie's International Blog Hop


Hi, Everyone!
First, I want to say I'm so excited to be participating in the Top Ten International Highlights Winners Blog Hop April 2020 hosted by Kylie Bertucci! I earned this honor with my card, Elegant Ornate Edges in Black and White, placing in the top 10 of Kylie's April, 2020, International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my card!

The theme for our cards is thank you, and what better time than now to say a great big Thank You to everyone who has done their part in making our world a safer place. Now on to my card.
If you love delicate and ornate, then you're going to love this card! The Stampin' Up!® Tulip Builder punch is the focal point of this thank you card. I used the Perennial Essence Vellum in So Saffron and Petal Pink to construct the tulips by punching 2 sets. The leaves were punched out of Old Olive vellum. I overlapped the pieces and adhered them with glue dots.
Measurements for the card itself are as follows:
          Pool Party 4 1/4" x 11" (Scored at 5 1/2" and 2 3/4"), 5 1/2" x 4 1/4", 2" x 3"
          Whisper White 4" x 5 1/4"
          Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper 5" x 3 7/8" 

Cut the Whisper White piece with the largest Petal Labels die. Adhere the Parisian Blossoms paper behind the cut-out oval. Below is the Petal Label die (pictured in Pool Party instead of white so it would show up better) and the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper I used. Adhere the designer paper behind the Whisper White piece. A piece of Scalloped Lace Trim was adhered around the bottom of this piece, which was then adhered to the 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Pool Party piece.


Next, adhere the Whisper White piece that you have backed with the Pool Party piece to the bottom half of the card front. Now is a good time to apply those beautiful tulips and a bow made from the Scalloped Lace Trim.
Stamp your sentiment on Whisper White with Pool Party ink and cut with the oval in the Petal Labels set. Cut a Pool Party piece with the smaller Petal Label die and adhere the sentiment in the center. To make the sentiment pop and raise it up higher, I cut a Whisper White oval with the 4th from largest oval from the Layering Ovals die set, and adhered the sentiment piece to it. I then applied it to the bottom inside with dimensionals for my easel to have a stopping point.

I hope you like the card I created and be sure to check out all the amazing creations the other blog hop participants have created. Take a look at the list below to see who's next, after me, Robbie Susan Chandler.

Ornate Edges Elegant Thank You Card

Drum Roll, Please!! Here are the results from my participating in an International Blog Highlights contest hosted by Kylie Bertucci.

I came in 3rd out of 46 participants!!  I couldn't have done it without you! Thank you for your support.

Do you want to see all the results? Click here to see pictures of all the card entries and the number of votes each received. Below are the details for my card you voted on. Thanks, again!

You can never say Thank You enough. I used the beautiful Ornate Borders Dies, that can be found in the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, to make this thank you card. Stampin' Up! issued this die set as an early release from our June 3, 2020, Annual Catalog. What's exciting, though, is that you can purchase this set now! What's more elegant than black and white, especially Stampin' Up! Black Foil and Whisper White cardstock. The diagonal easel style makes this card even more special.
The versatility of this card lends itself to a variety of occasions. As you can see from the card below, it also makes a beautiful sympathy card.
To create this card you will need the following cardstock and sizes:

               Thick Whisper White 4 ¼” x 11” 
               Whisper White 4 ¼” x 5 ½”, 4” x 5 ¼”, 2 ½” x 2 ½” 
               Black Foil 4” x 5 ¼”, 2 ½” x 2 ½” 

To form the easel, score Thick Whisper White piece at 5 ½” and from top right corner to bottom middle. Fold card base in half and along diagonal score line.

Emboss smaller white piece with Ornate Floral embossing folder. 

Cut Black Foil with Ornate Borders Dies on an angle from upper right corner to bottom left corner. Emboss with Subtle Embossing Folder. Adhere this piece to the Whisper White embossed piece. 
Adhere ribbon around left side and tie smaller piece around ribbon to make faux bow. Adhere this piece to larger Whisper White piece then to the card base, only applying adhesive below the diagonal fold line. Adhere rhinestones in center of roses.
 

Cut Black Foil with 3rd from largest straight edge Layering Square die. Stamp sentiment on Whisper White and cut with 4th from largest scalloped Layering Square die. Adhere to Black Foil piece and adhere sentiment to bottom right inside of card with dimensionals.
You will find all supplies listed below. I hope you like my card and will make one yourself.
