Different Card, Different Day 2/6/18 February 06 2018, 0 Comments

If you've been following my blog, you've seen this adorable little mouse before. He's a Stampin' Up! rubber wooden stamp from 1996 that I colored in with watercolors. 

Originally in the stamp it reads "Hooray for you" between the mouse's hands but instead of stamping that part, I blocked it off with tape and arranged five red hearts made from punches. (Looks like he's juggling them).

Flip the card open and the inside reads "Whale you be my Valentine?" with a matching colored smiling whale.  I made this card for my Gram. She's 96 and I hand delivered it to her yesterday with a surprise visit. Needless to say...she loved it. 

The flip card was designed by The Stamps Of Life by Stephanie Barnard. The checkerboard border is also part of the cutting die set to make this card. I inked them in red distress inks. A red sheer ribbon runs up the length of the card and is tied in a knot.

If you want to find out how this card was made, using which supplies or how I possibly could design a card for you, please contact me.  Leave me a comment too and let me know what you think about today's card of my daily "Different Card, Different Day" blog series. 

Thanks for reading my blog. Enjoy your day.

Different Card, Different Day 1/23/18 January 23 2018, 0 Comments

Hello from the heart. This sweet Valentine's Day card is wishing a very heart-filled hello from this little girl in the yellow dress.  She comes from a 1996 Stampin' Up! rubber stamp set and was colored in with my watercolor paints. Very similar to the blog yesterday about the mouse stamp. The popped up envelope with heart is from my new stamp set by Paper Pumpkin in my latest club kit. 

The golden "hello" with it's white shadow image behind it comes from The Stamps Of Life by Stephanie Barnard cutting dies. One is cut out from white cardstock and the other a metallic gold paper. She said in her video on her website that this is in her own handwriting. I thought that was pretty cool.

The black stripe with hearts is Washi tape wrapped around to the backside. This prevents the tape from ever peeling up on the sides of the card.

Inside I stamped "Happy Valentine's Day" and backed it on pink and red paper matching papers.

Different Card, Different Day 1/22/18 January 22 2018, 0 Comments

This adorable happy little mouse is a Stampin' Up! rubber stamp from 1996! I colored him in with watercolor paints and added some red heart punched images above him, like he's juggling them. The gold star is popped up using a foam adhesive dot.

Many different color paints were used and a small amount of shading added.  Originally this stamp has a "Hooray for you" above him but I taped it off while inking the stamp in black StazOn ink, then peeled the tape away before stamping it onto white cardstock. This left me with only the mouse.

Inside the card "Happy Valentine's Day" is stamped in blocks on the right side of the card, leaving plenty of room for a handwritten note. I have a feeling I'll be painting more of this little love mouse and you'll be seeing him soon. He's too cute not to recreate on other Valentine's Day themed cards.

Different Card, Different Day 12/29/17 December 29 2017, 0 Comments

Today I decided to show a set of similar cards that I made from the same pack of Christmas paper. There were so many shiny red metallic designs that I didn't know what to do with them all at first. Then I received some papers from one of my monthly card making club kits and had the idea to create this set of Christmas cards.

Inside each, I stamped a couple of houses and the sentiment "Wishing you a beautiful season and a New Year of peace and happiness".  The moon, stars, chimney smoke and trees are also part of my StampinUp! stamp set. The rest of the ground scene I drew by hand.

Mounds of snow look like they are shoveled next to the walkways and you might spot some variances here and there. Different papers were used depending on how they matched the front side of the card.

This one happens to be wrapped like a present with red sheer ribbon. The tree is also dimensional with Glossy Accents on each of the white dots and lines above.

 

The inside of this one has red paper bordering the stamped image. The walkways and snow scene are still similar to each other but because they are hand drawn, they are all unique.

The corner accents are what makes this card different. The metallic gold is washi tape doubled up and wrapped around the paper's backside. The black corners are outline stickers by Krazy Kreations.

Would you even know that what I drew on didn't come as part of the stamp? 

Since I had a gold star that I had die cut from another project, I decided to top the tree off with it. I like the look of the slender tree.

There seem to be a variety of ornaments in this collection. This card also has the black vinyl outline corner stickers filled in with green paper. It was chosen to match the green in the background paper.

A close up will show you that there is a white cover strip to the right and in front of the house on the right. What that is...is correction tape. When I stamped some of these cards, the black ink stamped onto parts that I didn't want it to be on. So, I used correction tape. The photos are picking up on the tape but in real life, I think it's much harder to tell that it's even there.

These corners are red and match the berries on the background paper. Very seasonal colors.

Since there are many cards for this blog today and most insides are similar, I'll shrink the pics up so you can scroll down through them quicker.

The golden washi tape is crossed like ribbons on a package.

 

The white dove card has golden washi tape randomly placed in a diagonal way. 

I hate to keep showing you the insides of these cards because they are all so similar. However, since they are slated to go up for sale in the online gift shop, I feel obligated to show all of each card. 

And lastly, a shiny red and white ornament card. 

Wow! That was a lot of cards. Glad you stuck with me all the way through.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays AND Season's Greetings. Wow! This card says it all. The nutcracker and drum are silver Dazzles that I water-colored in with red, blue, peach and black. The tree was also water-colored but with watercolor pens (instead of water, paint and brush).

On the inside, a sweet sentiment reads: "Wishing you a beautiful season and a new year of peace and happiness". This rubber stamp image is from Stampin Up.
