Love Today card by designer Patty Folchert

Love Today Wedding Card
The new Doilies and Woodgrain stamp and stencil set from Jillibean Soup helped me to create a chic non-traditional wedding card. 

Love Today card by Patty Folchert

Using the doilies from the set I stamped them onto the cream card base using black ink. Then I added the flashcard with a charcoal gray cardstock mat. Next I added the KI Memories black glitter dots and the Wise Words Love sticker. Then I added the icon sticker couple with 3D foam dots and one large clear wood sprinkle for a dramatic effect.

A surprisingly simple card that makes a big statement for that big day! I really love these doily stamps, so versatile.

Stamped with Love,

Stamps & Stencils card by designer Melinda Spinks

Hello and welcome... it's Melinda with you today and I've been having some fun playing with the new Stamp & Stencil sets, in particular the gorgeous doily stamps. I don't think I could ever tire from using doilies on my projects as they as just so darn sweet and extremely versatile.

I used the new 'Label' Stamp & Stencil set which boasts the clear stamp doilies and the woodgrain stencil... honestly it's a perfect combination.

1. Cut and score a piece of white cardstock measuring 4" x 5.5" when folded.
2. Cut a single sheet of white cardstock measuring 3.75" x 5.25".
3. Using a selection of the clear stamps and different colored inks, stamp a collage of doilies in a layered approach (allowing each stamp to dry in between stamping) across the bottom third of your single sheet of white cardstock.
4. Using black ink, stamp your sentiment across the centre of the stamped doilies.
6. Add epoxy dots in a co-ordinating color to the centre of the main doilies.
7. Using foam pop dots adhere the single sheet of cardstock to the folded card making sure you have even space around each edge.

29 Again?! Birthday card by designer Gretchen McElveen

Hi there! I’m sharing a birthday card with you today using the fun new “Birthday Bisque” line from Jillibean Soup! 
29 Again?! card by Gretchen McElveen

I made this one with the intent of using it to set on someone's desk at work on their birthday instead of trying to fit it in an envelope to send through the mail. This is a big and bulky card. It's 5.5 inches squared. I used lots of foam adhesive for dimension and the balloons extend way up over the top of the card. It would not fit in an envelope easily! But it is big enough for everyone in the office to sign and it will be easy to spot when the employee arrives at her desk! 

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful Butterfly Hello card by designer Lori Williams

Butterfly Card/ Hello by Lori Williams

Today’s card is one that is simple yet really highlights the stamped and stenciled embellishments.  Sometimes simple can actually be more difficult to pull off that a busy card, you really have to make each element shine.  I started off using solid color card stock and embossed with a folder.  The next step was die cutting out the fancy flourish/circle.  I attached that with foam tape for some texture.  I then punch a plain white circle and used the stencil from the Vintologie Stamp and Stencil set SC 0642.  I used pigment ink so the color would be solid and rich.  You’ll want to be sure that the ink is good and dry before proceeding on.  

On another sheet of white paper I stamp the butterfly stamps and from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Set IC0296 and fussy cut two of them out.  I then glued them to the stenciled circle and added the circle to the front of the die cut flourish.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment and fussy cut out. I bowed the banner a bit before gluing it down so it pops off the card.  Lastly I layer onto white and then sweet grass green cardstock to finish it all up.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow for another great project.
