What a Guy stamp set

The MISTI makes repeat stamping so easy and fun to do. It has changed the stamping world tremendously. Paired with Technique Tuesday stamps, creating cards are so easy.

Here’s how I created this card:

Cut the card base to 4.25 by 11, scored at 5.50.

Place the card base into the MISTI bottom right hand corner.

Place Technique Tuesday What a Guy nail stamp where you want to start stamping.

Ink up the stamp with Versamark ink and close the door.

What a guy

Repeat stamping along the left side of the card, turning the nail stamp around.

Set the base card aside.

Create a gift tag using We R Memory Keepers Tag Punch Board.

Tag Punch Board

Decide on the sentiment and place the tag into the MISTI.

Figure out the place of the sentiment by placing the stamps on the tag.

Close the door and the stamps are set.

Ink up the stamps with Altenew Crisp Permanent Black Ink and stamp.

Repeat the stamping if the stamp isn’t as crisp as you like.

Stamp the nail stamp 2 more times on the same color cardstock as the card base and die cut it with Altenew Mini Blossom die cutting machine.

Attach the die cut nails to the tag.

Add a brad to the tag and attach the tag to the card base bottom right hand corner using 3M double-sided foam tape.

How to Create Texture Using a Die Cut

Hello everyone!! I’m here today to show you how to create texture using a die cut from Technique Tuesday By the Numbers Crafting Die.

Let’s take a look:

I love this By the Numbers die! It’s bold and full of space in between the numbers. Creating this card was simple.

Here’s how:

Simple die cut the numbers die 3 times out of white cardstock.

Then cut a 4th piece out of We R Memory Keepers Urban Chic patterned paper.  Adhere them all together using Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive.

Cut the Neenah Solar White card base to 4.25 by 11 scored at 5.5.

Cut a second piece of the same Urban Chic patterned paper to 4.25 by 5.5 and adhere it to the top of the card base.

Line the die cut numbers strips with the stripes on the card base and adhere.

Beautiful texture!

To finish the card off, stamp the sentiment from Technique Tuesday Flowers For Mom stamp set inside using Versamark Ink.

Sprinkle Altenew Pure White Embossing Power on top and heat set it.

Flowers for mom stamp set

The font for this sentiment is my favorite.  It’s bouncy and playful.  It goes will with the front of the card.

Super quick and easy.

What do you think? Will you try adding some texture to your card front? I would love to see what you create!

Technique Tuesday April 2018 Release Countdown Day 2

Hello everyone!!! Today I’m showcasing Technique Tuesday April 2018 Release!! Were you pleased with yesterday’s projects? Well let’s see what today holds.

Let’s take a look:

Grandma blessingsI love this Grandma Blessings stamp set because the sentiments are so true.  Grandma’s are truly a blessing and we don’t know how lucky we are to have them until they are gone.

I lost my grandmother last month so this set really hit home for me.  My grandmother spoiled us.  She was tough but she really loved us and made us laugh.

Since my grandmother isn’t here anymore, I decided to create a “postcard” card to send to my grandmother in heaven.  I will place it in her bible when no one is looking.

Here’s how this card was created:

Use Cricut Design Studio to create the card base.

Placed a piece of kraft board on a standard mat and run it through the Cricut Maker.

The Cricut Maker scores (with the scoring stylus) and draws the lines (with the midnight pen) on the card front.

Once the Cricut Maker finishes, peel the card front off of the mat.

Fold on the scored line.

Using the Mini MISTI, stamp a sentiment on the left side of the card using Versafine Black Onyx Ink.

Let that dry a bit.

Then stamp the flower stamp underneath the sentiment using ColorBox Crafter’s Berry Ink.

Super simple and easy card!

There’s more:

The Cricut Maker can cut out an envelope as well.

A simple butterfly stamp in the bottom right corner keeps the entire set CAS!!

Nicely done.
