New In Colors for July 2020 Candy Hearts Blog Hop

Candy Hearts Blog Hop July 2020, 2020-2022 In Colors

 

Welcome to the July 2020 Candy Hearts Blog Hop! This month we are featuring the new 2020-2022 In Colors. I used three of them on my card: Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, and Misty Moonlight. I used Memories & More (M&M) products from the Flowers for Every Season Suite along with the bloom & Grow Stamp set and Forever Flourishing Dies. The matching M&M card bases and envelopes and the M&M card pack make it a cinch to create a great card in no time.

Pattern Play Stamp Set Birthday Swap Cards

Today I’m sharing the card I made for the June 2020 Candy Hearts team card swap. I used the Pattern Play stamp set and Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper to create these simple and fun birthday cards. I love the cute stamped confetti over the scuffed up pattern of the DSP. Even though all the cards I made came from the same pattern of DSP, they all look a little different because some have more yellow than others, and because I stamped the confetti differently on each one. I posted a photo of two of the cards side by side below so you can see the difference between them. 

By the way, this #simplestamping card is just stamps, ink, and paper! (Plus adhesive, of course.)

Patriotic Mask for June 2020 Candy Hearts Blog Hop

Candy Hearts Blog Hop, June 2020, Patriotic #stampcandy

Welcome to the June 2020 Candy Hearts Blog Hop! Today we are sharing Patriotic themed projects to get ready for the 4th of July, which is Independence Day here in the United States. After reading my post, I hope you will hop to the next person on the list below. Be sure to check out ALL the great projects the Hearts have created for you today. 

My card is very simple. Except for two little pieces of ribbon, it’s just card stock and ink. I made it in honor of all healthcare workers, and really everyone who wears a mask any time they are around other people. If you are patriotic and care about the people of your country, please wear a mask. It literally saves lives. 

One week ago I lost a dear family member to COVID-19. Someone at her husband’s work had no symptoms and refused to wear a mask, and infected a bunch of people. By the time they found out he had it, it was too late. She died, and her husband is still in ICU. Please, please, please, even if you don’t think COVID-19 is real, please wear a mask. Remember, it isn’t to protect you, it’s to protect everyone else, especially the more vulnerable folks and the people who will go home to them. Thank you.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Paper Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
  • Real Red CS strips cut to 1/4″ x 7″ (about 7 or 8 pieces)
  • Night of Navy CS strips cut to 1/4″ x 7″ (about 7 or 8 pieces)
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3″ x 4″, then scored at 1/2″, 1″, 1-1/2″, 2-1/2″, 3″, and 3-1/2″ (I left 1/2″ at the top and bottom to fold under, but you can delete these bits if you want. Cut it to 3″ x 3″, then score at 1/2″, 1″, 2″, and 2-1/2″)
  • Whisper White CS cut to 1/2″ x 1-1/2″, then scored in half at 1/4″ (2 pieces)
  • ends of the 1/4″ strips trimmed from the edges of the background layer (see below)

Stamped with the Ornate Thanks stamp set:

  • THANKS in Real Red ink onto the top pleat of the mask
  • for all you do in Night of Navy ink onto the bottom pleat of the mask
  • The pleats are now, from the top down, in red, white, and blue!

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • a Real Red CS strip and a Night of Navy CS strip glued side by side, at an angle, onto the middle area of the Whisper White CS layer, with the ends hanging off the side
  • a CS strip laid next to them to make a space between the next red and navy strips, then removed the strip so the white shows through (OR you could cut Whisper White Thick CS strips and glue them between the others.)
  • continued this until the layer was covered, then trimmed the excess pieces from the edges of the layer with the Paper Trimmer
  • glued the layer onto the front of the card base
  • burnished the folds in the 3″ x 4″ Whisper White CS and accordion folded to look like a mask
  • burnished the folds in the 1/2″ x 1-1/2″ Whisper White CS pieces and glued them onto the ends of the mask
  • adhered the ends of a piece of ribbon onto the back corners of the mask using Mini Glue Dots, one on each side
