Best Catch Ever Masculine Card

Today I have a masculine card to share with you. I think the colors are what makes it masculine. Obviously it’s perfect for a fisherman. But the sentiment, taken as a pun, makes it great for anyone. The layers are cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (I LOVE them!) and lined up at a corner, instead of centered. I did that so I would have more space for the die cuts from the Catch of the Day Thinlits Dies, which I tucked in around the layers.

Can you tell how the fins on the large fish are curved up just a little bit? I just used my fingers to do that. I love how the die cuts the fin in the middle of the fish so you can curl it up separately from the body.

Hey Love with the Stamparatus Mirror Stamping Technique

There are lots of ways to stamp an mirror image, but by far the easiest I’ve found is with the Stampatarus and a Silicone Craft Sheet. I used this technique on today’s Happy Anniversary card I made with the Hey Love stamp set, Dot to Dot embossing folder, and Detailed Trio Punch.  the hearts on the inside of the card were cut using the multi-heart die in the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, but I had them left over from previous projects – I actually have a little container full of them. 

I’ve used the Dot to Dot embossing folder a lot lately. It’s so cute and whimsical and can represent so many things, like bubbles, stones, etc. I thought it lent a reptilian air to this card, appropriate for the cute little lovey-dovey crocodiles.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Mossy Meadow card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Old Olive CS layer cut to 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 5″ x 2-3/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Hey Love stamp set and the Stamparatus:

  • crocodile in Memento black ink onto the Whisper White CS layer on the right side
  • crocodile in Memento black ink onto the Silicone Craft Sheet ( I stamped it a couple times to make sure there was plenty of ink on the craft sheet.)
  • flipped over the layer horizontally, laid it very carefully over the craft sheet, then stamped again. You don’t need to ink up the stamp for this one. This is to press the CS onto the image on the craft sheet and transfer the ink onto the underside of the paper.
  • NOTE: When you line up the stamp for the first stamp, be sure it doesn’t cross the center of the layer, or the images may overlap.
  • sentiment in Gray Granite ink between the two crocs

Cut using the Detailed Trio Punch:

  • rounded all four corners of the Whisper White CS layer and of the Whisper White CS for the inside of the card

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • left crocodile in Mossy Meadow, Old Olive , and Balmy Blue
  • right crocodile in Old Olive, Granny Apple Green, and Flirty Flamingo

Die cut using the Be Mine Stitched Framelits:

  • tiny hearts, using the multi-heart die, from scraps of Flirty Flamingo and Balmy Blue CS
  • NOTE: I had the hears left over from previous projects. The pink one was actually Petal Pink, so I colored it with the light Flirty Flamingo marker.

Ran through the Big Shot in the Dot to Dot embossing folder:

  • Old Olive CS layer

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Old Olive CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • croc layer glued onto the Old Olive CS layer
  • 3 Heart Epoxy Droplets applied onto the Old Olive CS layer
  • 3 hearts glued onto the Whisper White CS for the inside
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Florentine Filigree Bundle Card in Blue-Greens

Today I’m sharing a card I made using the lovely Florentine Filigree Bundle (Florentine Filigree stamp set and Florentine Framelits Die.) I think it would be a pretty card in almost any color combination, but for today I used Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana, a couple of watery blue-greens, along with Whisper White. The sentiment is raised on Stampin’ Dimensionals, and Pear Basic Jewels are placed in each stamped flourish area for the final touch.

TIP: You can use the Stamparatus to line up the stamps with the die cut, or you can cut a template and use that to line up the stamps.

Layered Leaves Happy Birthday Card from Leftovers

Today I’m sharing another card I made using leftovers from other projects. I may have cut more than I needed at the time, or I may have changed my mind about the paper color or something else. The pieces were perfectly good, just not for what I was working on at the time. So I kept them for when I can use them. I remember I decided to use a different embossing folder after trying the Layered Leaves Dynamic folder, but the Layered Leaves design was perfect for today’s card. The only parts of this card I didn’t take from my pile of leftovers are the Early Espresso card base and the Whisper White cardstock on the inside.
