Black-n-White

PicsArt_07-24-06.59.27

I love black and white cards.  And this one is so simple and elegant.  If you have not seen the Detailed Bands Dies yet, check them out by clicking on the link or look below in the list of products I used to make this card.  The Detailed Bands Dies is one of my most favorite die sets in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!

Images and words (minus the Happy Birthday) are from a lovely set called Very Versailles. This set is right up my alley... Now the branches of leaves may look like they are not inked well, but they are.  The image is one of Stampin' Up! DistINKtive stamps; stamps made a special way to give a realistic look.  I can't wait to try with other ink colors. 

The Happy Birthday is from the stamp set called Here's a Card.  If you are looking for a "word" stamp set, this may the one you should order

I have to laugh at myself with the inside of the card.  Can you see why? 

As I always say in my classes.... well, it IS handmade!

 

I do want to give credit as I CASED (copy and share everything) this project from a card swap I participated in.  Joanna Jones, fellow demonstrator from Oklahoma, made the below card. My sample, I changed the sentiment and added rhinestones and an inside.  Her card is so pretty so I had to share.

Can I say how glad I am that it is Friday?!?  Why has this been the looooonngest week!  I have a few things on my end going or that happened so maybe that is way.  Anyway, the weather is so beautiful so I am hoping to work in the yard and catch up on a few others as well.  What do you have planned for your weekend?

The Good Morning Magnolia Bundle continues to be wildly popular.  There are so many things you can create especially when the bundle has 16 dies in it and so many great coordinating items.  I think my card today is pretty straight forward but let me give you a few details so you can re-create it!

-Card base in Early Espresso is standard 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored and folded at 4-1/4.

-Whisper White card stock layer is 5-1/4 x 4".  Stamp and die cut the "Hello" from the center of this layer piece.  I used the Stitched Layered dies.

-Pink stripped paper is from the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper and is 3-3/4 x 2-1/2"

-Crumb Cake card stock piece is also 3-3/4 x 2-1/2" and was embossed with the New 3D Scripty Embossing Folder and New 3D Embossing Folder Plate.  If you do not know what the 3D Embossing Folder Plate is, be sure to watch my YouTube video explaining it and how to use. While you are there, make sure to subscribe to my Channel so you do not miss upcoming videos.  

-I stamped the large magnolia flower on scrap Whisper White Card stock and used my Stampin' Blends for color; just outlining the leaves in Light Mossy Meadow and lightly coloring the magnolia with Petal Pink.  I used the coordinating dark Blends for the stem and middle of flower. 

-Top is all off with some Clear Wink of Stella over the flower to add beautiful shimmer.

Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin

PicsArt_06-19-05.11.27

Elegant and beautiful... those are the first two words that come to my mind when I see the Bird Ballad suite.  Click to see entire suite. 

Today I want to highlight the Laser-Cut Card and Tins.  Above is the Tin decorated with die cuts and stamped images from the Bird Ballad product suite. 

Here is what the Tin and Laser-Cut cards look like out of the box.  The tin of 12 cards and 12 envelopes can be purchased separately.  Notice the scallop detail on the envelopes! 

PicsArt_06-19-05.10.32

The cards are standard A2 size (5-1/2 x 4-1/4 folded).  The top layer is a beautiful, elegant, laser-cut image; delicate but sturdy.  Below, is a card sample my class did with a piece of Petal Pink card stock behind the laser-cut measuring 5-1/5 x 4-1/4.  Note:  I did need to slightly under-cut the 4-1/4 side of Petal Pink to accommodate the cards fold.

You can purchase the Free As A Bird Bundle which includes just the Bird Ballad stamp set and the Stitched Nested Label dies.  In my card, I used the Label Die measuring 1-3/4 x 3-1/4 and simply cut off the right side point.  I used the Butterfly Wishes stamp set for the butterflies, words, and branch image.  The Butterfly Wishes coordinates with the Butterfly Builder Punch. 

I cannot wait to show you some projects using the Bird Ballad stamp set, so be sure to sign up for my blog updates to receive notifications!

Here are the supplies I used to make my card:
