It's What You See card featuring Graphic45 by designer Lori Williams

I love this quirky little card, it’s shape, the stencil and the eyeglasses with eyes stamp…super cute.  
It's What You See card by Lori Williams

I created the base card using a Spellbinder die.  I folded over a sheet of card stock and then ran the die over with an edge of sticking out, so it cut the whole image but left a bit connected at the top so it will open as a fancy shaped card.  I then used one of the self sticking templates from Hampton Art that I love ( SC0645 ).  The way the stencil adheres to the paper makes sure that no ink gets under the edges and it gives a nice crisp finish.  Next I stamped the image on another sheet of card stock and then cut it out with the smaller Spellbinders. (TIP: Don’t forget to ink your edges, that gives a finished look to all your projects.) I colored in the eyes with colored pencils and finished everything off with some embellishments.  

The stamp is one of our wooden block stamps from Graphic 45 (PS0767).  Please be sure to stop back in tomorrow with another creative inspiration from our design team.

Hi there! I’ve made a couple birthday cards to share with you today. You can never have too many spare birthday cards on hand if you ask me! Both of these cards are made with the festive
“Birthday Bisque” line from Jillibean Soup. I went a 5”x5” square shape for both of these and I used lots of foam adhesive to give the cards some nice dimension. Thanks for looking and thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Smile layout by designer Patty Folchert


This playful every day layout uses very trendy triangles and the KI Memories Playlist collection partnered with a Vintologie stamp and stencil set.

Smile layout by Patty Folchert

I just realized that every project I created for Hampton Art this month utilized a stamp and stencil set, I just love them! For this layout I only used the stamps but the stencil with this set is a super fun chevron.  This layout begins with striped background and then two skinny border strips on top and one on bottom. Then I stamped the Hello, smile, Best Day Ever and camera images onto white cardstock in black ink. Those were set aside to dry and then four triangles of the same size were added cut from four complementing patterns of the KI Memories Playlist collection. Then one large triangle was cut out of the blue pattern. Next I cut the pink photo mat and added the family photo. 


The little banner in the top right was constructed using two more triangles and fussy cutting the “best day ever” stamped piece into a pennant shape.  The other stamped pieces were fussy cut out and added to the page with adhesive or pop up dots as shown. The triangles were placed and the photo mat layered on. Some embellishments were added, the KI Memories Confetti flowers with white and silver glitter dots. 

This photo was taken on Super Bowl Sunday of this year and my family was so excited to have our team in championship game. The game didn’t go quite how we hoped, but it was still lots of fun. 

Still a Broncos Fan, 
Patty

Vintage inspired card by designer Patty Folchert


I had to use some of my favorite items from a brand new Jillibean Soup product for this card. The Mix the Media items from the Ephemera Pack in green paired up so nicely with the Vintologie Stamp & Stencil set. Then I selected one of my favorite color combos just for fun, pink and green.
Bingo! card by Patty Folchert

I began with a fold open pink card base and the Vintologie stencil, using green ink I created the hexagon print. Then I used one of the butterflies from that collection in brown ink. Next I layered on the the Bingo Card, cork butterflies and treasure nametag, all from the new ephemera pack. The treasure nametag was also stamped with flourish stamp from the Vintologie set and brown ink in the corners. See close up below:


Last I added KI Memories glitter dots in brown and a wood button from the ephemera pack to finish the butterflies. That was all it took, a whimsical everyday card complete with stamping and stenciling.

Addicted to Stencils,
Patty
