Here is another card I made using the Thankful Tablescape kit. The bottom piece is from the holder in the kit, and the orange piece was originally a belly band. I used the edge of my inkpad on the leaves.
Saturday was World Card Making Day. I celebrated by making a card! Since I'm traveling, I have limited supplies. Fortunately, I brought my Thankful Tablescape kit! The cardbase is Crumb Cake, and all of the other supplies came from the kit. The birch paper ribbon is my favorite, and I added a piece of brown paper ribbon. I used the new rotary cutter scallop blade on the edge. I cut a tag shape from the orange paper and crumpled the leaf for texture.
I'm in California for work for 5 weeks, but I was able to bring some stamping supplies with me. Creating with limited supplies is always a challenge for me; I like having my stuff!
I got one of the Simply Sent kits called On Its Way. It has 8 cardbases with envelopes as well as stickers and arrow-shaped clips. Here are 2 variations of the same card.
Stephanie loves horses, so that made it easy to decide what to put on her birthday card! The cardbase is Crumb Cake. I used 2 pieces of retired DSP from the Occasions catalog. The splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge is stamped in Early Espresso. The horse from Horse Frontier is Early Espresso and Gumball Green. The sentiment is from A Round Array, and it is stamped in Midnight Muse onto Summer Starfruit then punched with the 7/8 scallop circle punch.
I just got a new shirt that has a tie-dye print on it. I thought that would make a cool background for a card, so I decided to try it on Daniel's birthday card.
My shirt is gray and eggplant, but Daniel's favorite color is blue. I decided to use Smoky Slate and Marina Mist. To create the tie-dye pattern, I used crumpled wax paper because I thought that would hold its shape better than plastic wrap. I like how it looks!
The skid mark from Gorgeous Grunge is stamped 3 times in Midnight Muse. The image from Bombs Away Birthday is stamped in Whisper White on a tag from theThankful Tablescapes Simply Created kit.
I don't usually stamp on the inside, but I wanted to add the Happy Birthday bomb, and then I added the small splatters from Gorgeous Grunge in Smoky Slate.
I'm so proud of this card because I made it on the fly, and that's just not me! I had the Daffodil Delight cardbase and the white embossed layer laying on my craft table. I pulled the color combo from the Color Coach: Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate, and Soft Sky.
I used the Mosaic Madness stamp set and Mosaic punch along with the Designer Typeset photopolymer stamp set (for the arrow) and the sentiment is from Six-Sided Sampler.
I had multiple inspirations for this card. I was working on Dare to Get Dirty challenges from SCS, but I didn't get them done in time. I decided to make this card in the style of Lisa Hensley, aka ponygirl40. She has a very distinctive style and layout that she uses, and I've copied it here.
My card base is Crumb Cake. For the dry embossed layer, I brayered crumb cake ink onto the Lacy Brocade embossing folder before I put the cardstock in it. That added color to the debossed areas.
For the flower, I punched out 3 blossoms and 2 of the 1 1/4" scallop circles. I wet them and crunched them up then opened them up, shaped them, and let them dry overnight. Once they were dry, I adhered the layers together and sprayed them with vanilla shimmer mist.
Pear Pizzazz taffeta ribbon and pearls complete the card.
