Stencil and Layer Birthday Card

I was inspired by a Jennifer McGuire video, “Custom Stamp Layering”, that I watched over the weekend.

I used a stencil and ink to create the floral pattern. The smaller panel was cut out of the larger panel with a die (and I replaced it with plain white cardstock, so the layers would be supported). I did not use a layer of foam under the smaller panel – I did not want to incur extra postage!

Supplies: Stamp – Clearly Besotted, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Sour Apple, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch, die – Lawn Fawn, stencil – Heidi Swapp, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.

Father’s Day Ties Card

I remember the only choices for Father’s Day cards (at least at the pharmacy where I shopped before age 10!) in my youth were decorated with neckties or fishing images. My Dad did wear a necktie to work, he had no interest in fishing. He no longer wears a necktie that often, he still isn’t interested in fishing.

I used my MISTI to create this pattern. Easy peasy. (one necktie stamp, stamped 15 times)

Supplies: Stamps – Lawn Fawn, paper – Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Stampin’ Up! Brilliant Blue (retired), Real Red, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.
