Hazel and Ruby: Gone Typo Celebrate Today Birthday Card

Hello! I created a birthday card with Hazel & Ruby's Gone Typo Collection. A sweet friend in the industry is celebrating a birthday today - Happy Birthday, Ken :) This collection is versatile that you can make a masculine themed project too!


With a combination of die templates, I created a wonderful layer of JustRite® Papercrafts' Vintage Labels Four and Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two and Marvelous Squares dies. Once I cut/embossed them with Wanderlust Patterned Paper (both sides) and white cardstock, I inked the edges of the patterned papers to make them stand out a little...using both direct ink to paper technique and some cotton tips.


I stamped my image/sentiment from Celebrate Today Vintage Labels Four Clear Stamps set on white cardstock and then cut/embossed Vintage Labels Four die over the it. To color, I used Teal and Blue Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils by using a water brush and my fingers to blend the Light Yellow PITT Pastel Pencil area...all wonderful products from Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft®!


Then I layered all with 3D Foam Squares to give the layers dimension and placed it on top of the card panel that was handcut with Just Sayin' Patterned Paper that was also edged with ink. This card base came from Hazel & Ruby's A6 Card Pad line...so convenient to use and great designs! Each collection has a card pad :)


Here is a second look...

Cut, Emboss and Stencil S4-328 Foliage die cut for beautiful details. Roll S4-351 Spiral Blossom One with a quilling tool. Assemble all to create this wonderful shaped card.

Today, I am introducing JustRite’s November 2013 ReleaseSweet Hearts Clear Stamps designed by the talented Samantha Walker using Spellbinders® S5-204 Lace Hearts dies also designed by Samantha to create a card. On a personal note: this card is perfect for wishing my hubby a happy wedding anniversary - 21 years! It was yesterday but the sentiment on this card expresses how I feel about my hubster!! OK...back to our card! LOL!!


今日は JustRite 11月のリリースの最終日です。私は、Samantha Walkerさんの デザインが好きで、彼女とJustRiteのデザインコラボで、とても幸せな気分です! (笑) ハートフルなカードを作りました~!今朝のニューズです:今日から11月24日まで、JustRiteのHP Grand Opening Saleを行います~!オーダーの合計 (輸送別) を25%引きます!Code: RESET 是非 使ってくださいね。


Using Spellbinders 5 x 7 Card Creator Series, I cut/embossed S6-001 5 x 7 Matting Basics A and 5 x 7 Matting Basics B die templates with patterned paper (Red - Authentique Paper and Black - Carta Bella).



Then I cut/embossed S6-004 Detailed Scallops die with white cardstock.



I used only the embossing sandwich S5-204 Lace Hearts Heart 4 die with the red die cut and sanded to highlight the design.



With the Sweet Hearts Clear Stamps set, I stamped the heart first and then later the sentiment (couldn't make up my mind! lol!!).


Next I added two ribbons, tied one in a knot and added two heart stick pins. Sequins were adhered on the card panel.



Lastly, the embellished card panel was placed on a 5 x 7" white card base and it's ready to be delivered! Another look...

今日は、4日目のJustRite 11月リリースの紹介です。アメリカ的な イメージのバックグランドスタンプです~!Faber-Castellの色鉛筆で色をつけました。カードベースにSpellbindersのエンボスフォルダを使い、エンボスのDesignをつけました。


I used a card base from Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock®/David Tutera™ for Darice Celebrate Cardmaking System and embossed with Spellbinderse M-Bossabilities EL-015 Bricks and Bark Folder. To highlight the embossing even more, I dauber sponged the Rich Cocoa ink. TIP: lightly mist the card base with water to loosen the paper fibers for a deeper emboss :)


I wanted to add a little more color to the card so I cut/embossed S6-002 5 x 7 Matting Basics B with patterned paper and for a perfect layering piece. Tie a burlap ribbon for another dimension!


Using a combination of ART GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and PITT Pastel Pencils, I colored the image in a soft and warm tones.
