Happy Birthday Everybody meets the Brick Wall

The card I am sharing with you today is the card I made for my husband as it is his 53rd Birthday Today.
But instead of an easy, carefree day, poor Steve has been looking after me as I have full blown Influenza and  I feel like death warmed up, and every bone and muscle in my body is screaming out in pain! urgh ... cough cough, splatter splatter ....

So as I type from my laptop, I am going to keep things quick and simple

Fortunately, I had made my hubbies card well in advance and already uploaded the images to blogger.

So, here are the products I  used in making today's card

And here is the Tutorial

  1. begin by making your card base by trimming a piece of Thicker Whisper White Cardstock to 15 cms x 15 cms, score the long side using either the scoring blade on your Stampin Trimmer, or your Simply Scored Tool at 15 cms.
  2. Randomly stamp 
  3. Trim a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 13 cms x 13 cms and randomly stamp the panel using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set (splatter stamps) using a combination of Night of Navy and Garden Green Classic Ink PAds.
  4. Dry Emboss the panel using the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) and your Big Shot.
  5. Cut your Stampin Sponge into 6 segments, and ink up one with Sahara Sand ink (Classic Ink Pad) and build the colour by adding extra in layers, and allowing the ink to dry between layers to avoid making the cardstock 'bobble'.
  6. Mat (layer) this panel onto a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock measuring 13.4 cms x 13.4 cms, using a couple of strips of Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  7. Add some Stampin Dimensionals (foam sticky pads) to the back of the Night of Navy Panel and adhere to the centre of your Card Base.
  8. Next stamp the large Birthday Sentiment from the Happy Birthday Everyone Stamp Set, onto a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock using Versamark Ink, Sprinkle with  White Embossing Powder , remove the excess powder and heat set with your Heat Tool
  9. Die cut the sentiment using the best fitting Banner Framelit Die. Use the magnetic platform with your Big Shot for best results,
  10. Apply some Stampin Dimensionals to the back of the banner, & add some  fast fuse adhesive to the centre of the back of the banner. Adhere some loops of Thicker Bakers Twine to the fast fuse adhesive on the back of the banner. I used some left over Thicker Bakers Twine from this years Sale A Bration, but there are 5 other colours to chose from in the current catalogue,
  11. Mount your banner onto your card front
  12. Finally Using Versamark Ink Pad, Stamp the 'to a wonderful man' stamp onto a scrap of Night of Navy Cardstock, sprinkle with White Embossing powder and heat set as before. Trim to size and mount onto your card front
  13. Finish with adding some Garden Green Candy Dots to the banner
  14. And that is it.
Just one final note, if there are any typo's or oddities, in today;'s post, please forgive me, and hope you can understand my meaning. I am hopeful that I will begin to feel a little better tomorrow

Jolly Christmas

Here is the tutorial

  1. begin by creating your card base, by trimming a piece of Thicker A4 Whisper White Cardstock to 15 cms (6") x 30 cms (12")
  2. Trim a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 12.8 cms x 12.8 cms
  3. Punch along the top of the Soft Suede Cardstock using Confetti Stars Border Punch
  4. Dry Emboss the Soft Suede Panel using the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) and run it through your bog shot Die Cutting Machine (using the multi-purpose platform)
  5. Ink up a sponge dauber with White Craft Ink, and sponge ALL the embossed (raised impressions) areas of the panel with White Craft Ink, re-inking the sponge dauber as required. Don't press too hard or you will flatten those lived embossed trees  
  6. Mat (layer) this panel onto a piece of Gold Foiled Cardstock measuring 13.2 cms x 13.2 cms, using Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  7. Then mat this onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock measuring 13.6 cms x 13.6 cms
  8. Now, you need to die cut the NOEL sentiment using the Christmas Greetings Dies & Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. For the best result, use the new Precision Plate in conjunction with your Big Shot, as this is an intricate die. Alternatively, you can use your Magnetic Platform and place a piece of Wax Paper )just the stuff for wrapping sarnies) between the cardstock and the die. This will help in removing the die.
  9. Next, you have a little Heat Embossing using the Jolly Christmas Stamp Set,; ink up the Deer Stamp with Versamark and stamp onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock. Dust with Gold Embossing Powder and Heat Set using your Heat Tool Cut the image out using your Paper Snips. Remember to rotate the cardstock, and not your scissors for best results, and leave a narrow border of the white cardstock so the image stands out once mounted,
  10. You are now on the home straight. All that is left to do, is Dress your card and mount it onto the card base. Begin by wrapping around a piece of Real Red Stripped Ribbon, and tying a bow.Next add the Celebrate and wooden element and the embossed Deer using Stampin Dimensionals, and then add the NOEL to the top section of the card front using the new Fine Tip Glue Pen. Apply a couple of strips of Fast Fuse Adhesive to the back of the Cherry Cobbler panel and mount this onto your card base. Job Done .... easier than you thought ... I hope?
