And Yet Another Card Set – I have Many People To Gift…

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

card set

This set is without a greeting because I actually use these cards for the gifts I am giving everyone, so a generic greeting won’t do. I want to write a personal greeting for each person. This is how I roll…
card set

This card set is probably the simplest of them all.

All I did was to cut a piece of cardstock (3½” by 1½”), then punch out 3 pinking circles from the Emma’s Shoppe’s collection by Crate Paper (it’s such a cute collection).

I adhered the three punched pieces to the cardstock using 2-way glue and sew over it [I used the 2-way glue to make sure the adhesive won’t clump the sewing machine].

I secured the ends of the threads with regular tape and rounded the corners, then adhered to the cardstock base.

That is all.

Isn’t it simple?

Quick Share – Another Card Set

Monday, April 11th, 2011

Card Set

I made another card set to give away to my family.

For this set I stamped a partial imprint of Hero Arts’ Dandelion Frame cling stamp. To do that I laid the stamp on the table, facing up and inked it with VersaMark ink. Then I took the piece of cardstock (3½” by 1½”) and laid it on top of the inked stamp and pressed on it gently with my fingers to make sure the ink transfered properly.

Then I covered the image with clear embossing powder and melted it with a heating tool.

Then I aded a strip of American Crafts ribbon to the edge of the carstock piece.

Next I sewed the top edges of the ribbon strip and secured the ends of the threads with regular tape.

Then I rounded all the corner with We R Memory Keepers corner chomper (which I had to help a little with my precision scissors, because it had to go through the ribbon) and adhered it all to the top left of my pre-printed card.

Super easy.

Handmade – The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Monday, April 4th, 2011

handmade card sets

We are about to visit home soon, after more than a year away. In the midst of making all the “gift arrangements” I found out that what my sister remembers the most and uses the most is the bonus set of handmade cards I gave her last year. Not the fancy schmancy make up or the cool toys for the kids. Just a batch of cards that I made myself. What a revelation.

We are still up to our ears with boxes containing gifts and specialties, but I decided to add a bonus handmade card sets to each of my peeps back home.

As my family lives in Israel and greets its acquaintances in Habrew, I decided to create the greeting digitally and print the cards’ frame and build on it.

As for the design I wanted to make each set cohesive with a repetitive design element, in both layout and materials.

The best way for me to go about it was to choose one collection paper pad, one (or two similar) stamp and one additional embellishment.

I love the results.

To finish it off as a gift, I wrapped each bundle with a cute ribbon and infused it with love dust.

The “ingredients” are from my recent humongous purchase from Scrapbook.com after 6 months of scrap supply dryness…

Here is what my shopping cart included:

What do you think? Will all these goodies finally get me going?

Share

Did you buy anything you are really excited about lately?

Update

At the advice and sweet encouragement of wonderful Virginia I decided to add these card set to the Moxie Fab World’s challenge. Wish me luck :)

I wanted to share with you a quick and simple card I made. You can also use the same technique to create ornaments for your tree. You may use any symmetrical shape to make it.

Supply

How To


[Go here to watch on YouTube and while there, please rate, comment and subscribe.]

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Cut you cardstock at 4¼” lengthwise and fold in half to create your card base.
  2. For each ornament, punch 5 punched pieces of patterned paper and fold each one in half.
  3. Adhere only one half of the punched piece to the second one, making sure the edges are aligned and repeat on all five punched pieces.
  4. Repeat for all the ornaments you want to add to your card.
  5. Decide how you want to lay your ornaments on your card and pierce a hole on top of each ornament and another hole on the fold of the card in a straight line above each ornament.
  6. Thread your embroidery floss through both pierced holes and tie at the bottom, close to the top of each ornament.
  7. To secure the knot, apply a glob of a strong liquid glue on each knot and attach a gem to it, to conceal the glue.
  8. Adhere the ornaments below each knot.
  9. Stamp your greeting.

Another Day, Another Card

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

Happy Birthday Card

After making yesterday’s cards I felt inspired to play around with Hero Arts’s Circle Doily cling stamp some more. Plus, in the meantime I got invited to another birthday party of a very dear friend…

Then again, do I really need a reason to make another card? I didn’t think so either.

This time I thought I will use autumnal colors to indicate the season.

Supply

How To

  1. Start by cutting and folding the card base (cut at 8½” by 5½” and fold at 4¼”).
  2. Stamp the big definition stamp on the card base with a very light ink color (Antique Linen).
  3. Stamp the doily with Versamark ink on the red cardstock and pour over some white embossing powder. Tap off the excess and heat emboss with a heat gun.
  4. Cut around the doily with precision scissors and adhere to the card’s front.
  5. Cut a small slit on the card’s fold and feed a string through it, make sure both end will “meet” at the front of the card.
  6. Feed the ends through the flower, add a couple foam adhesive dots to the flower for an extra hold and adhere in place.
  7. Feed the ends through the button holes and tie in a bow. Secure the bow with a dot of clear adhesive and conceal the adhesive with a gem.
  8. Stamp the greeting with white embossing powder on the same red cardstock. Apply embossing powder. Tap off the excess powder and heat emboss.
  9. Cut around the greeting, leave some more room at the end pointing inwards and round both corners of that end with a corner rounder. Adhere in place.
