A Joke

 

“My teenage daughter came home in a rage.

‘I’ve just done sex education in school today, Dad! You lied to me! You told me if I have sex before my sixteenth birthday, my boyfriend will die!’

I put down my paper: ‘Oh, he will, sweetheart, he will.’ ”

I love the way Christine used the Gold Glimmer Paper under the Classic Label Punch and the Holly Embossing Folder is a beautiful, yet subtle texture for the front of this card.

Project Sheet Monday

Blog

 

Isn't this clever??? Using the Santa Thinlit Die without the SANTA face??? When I see ways to use a product that it wasn't intended for - it makes me jump for joy!!! That makes my purchase so much more valuable - right?

 

Supplies:

  • Stamp Sets: Better Together (141736)
  • Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black (132708)
  • Paper: Basic Black cs (121045), Whisper White cs (100730), Pool Party cs (122924), Silver Foil sheets (132178)
  • Other:  Big Shot (113439), Detailed Santa Thinlits Dies (141836), Sweet and Sassy Framelits (141707) Precision Base Plate (139684), Die Brush (140603), 1/8” Silver Ribbon (132137),  3/8” Pool Party Stitched Satin Ribbon (141691) 

 

Measurements: 

Basic Black card stock: 4 ¼” x 11”, score at 5 ½”

Pool Party card stock: 3 ¾” x 5”  

Whisper White card stock:  4” x 3 ¾”

 

Instructions: 

  1. Using the Detailed Santa Thinlit, cut out the lower part of the Santa beard from the Whisper White cardstock.  Position paper on the Santa Die, so that 2” is left on the bottom to stamp on.
  2. Trim top of Detailed Santa thinlit so only the swirly part of the image is present.  
  3. Using the Sweet and Sassy die, cut the Silver Foil paper layering coordinating hearts to create a heart border.
  4. Stamp sentiment from the Better Together stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
  5. Adhere Whisper White Detailed Santa image to the Pool Party card stock. Use the Fine Tip Glue pen to adhere the Detailed Santa Thinlit. 
  6. Wrap a 8” piece of the 3/8” Stitched Satin Pool Party Ribbon across the front of the card, creating a border between the Detailed Santa thinlit and the lower part of the Whisper White cardstock. Tie a knot bow using 3” of the 3/8” Stitched Satin Pool Party Ribbon with a 1 ½” of the 1/8” Silver Ribbon tied in the center knot of the bow.  
  7. Adhere Pool Party to the Basic Black card stock. 

TIP – After you run the die through the BigShot, place the die w/ cardstock inside onto the foam mat that comes with the Big Shot die brush paper side towards the mat.  Then run the die brush across the top a few times and the Detailed Santa thinlit should pop right out with all or almost all the little pieces popped out for you!

Control Freaks Blog Hop - Gratitude

CF

 

It's time for our October blog hop! 

If you are arriving from Amy Koenders blog I'm sure you're thrilled you're hopping with us - she does fabulous work! If you're starting here on my blog - make sure you click on the NEXT button at the bottom to continue on the hop!

The theme is GRATITUDE..and I wanted to combine that with Fall...so here's what I came up with.  I had this picture in my head to use the LARGE LETTER FRAMELITS to spell out the word FALL - because it's small enough to fit on a card front - right? And then after I stamped the TIMELESS TEXTURE stamp set elements all over the Very Vanilla layer - I die cut it...and look what I thought of! I could use the letters that pop out on another card!!! A 2 for 1!!!!

 

DSCN9184W

 

I used a COLLAGE stamping technique for this card - I just stamped several of the TIMELESS TEXTURES elements in various inks (you can see them listed down below) to make a collage background. The leaf is from the LEAFLETS FRAMELITS die set.

 

DSCN9180W

 

Here's the inside - I just decorated it up a little bit and added the THANK YOU so I would stay in line with our GRATITUDE theme.

 

DSCN9169W

 

Here's my "afterthought" card - LOL! I think it turned out pretty cute! I used an Aqua Painter and ink pads and markers to color in my scarecrow. 

 

DSCN9177W

 

And the inside - with just a touch of stamping from the TIMELESS TEXTURES stamp set: 

 

DSCN9187W
