Masculine Birthday Card
by Angie Cimbalo

6 gears 2

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a masculine birthday card using some 3D embossing folders with some gold embossing paste.  Here's a closer look at my card:

5 gear close

I used the "Put it in Gear" 3D Embossing folder on black card stock and then added some gold metallic paste with my finger to the raised edges.  Next I used the "Vintage Tray" embossing folder and combination die to cut the panel up.  I also used that folder on a white piece of paper so I could piece the black/gold pieces inside the frame. 

The tools were cut using the dies that come with the" Toolbox" 3D embossing folder and then added them to the folder to dry emboss them.  I added a little gray ink to them and then added them to the card front, along with a "Happy Birthday Foil Greetings" circle to finish the card.  Here's one last look:

This card would work good for any guy, for Father's Day, birthday, hello, just about any occasion you need a masculine card!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_8506

Hi everyone!  For today's card I did a spotlight technique using embossing folders.

I began by dry embossing a white cardstock panel using the Cheerful Floral 3D embossing folder.  Next, I used a blending brush and turquoise dye ink to lightly go across the raised embossed image.  I didn't mind that some of the ink went into the background.  I wanted a soft look to the background. I mounted the background to a black cardstock mat and used foam tape to adhere it to a white card base.

For the center spotlight image, I die cut a circle from Teal cardstock and placed it in the embossing folder and ran it through my die cutting machine.  I ran a white pigment ink pad over the embossed circle to highlight the embossing.  I used foam tape and glued it to the card matching the embossed flowers on the background.

I spattered the background with teal ink to add a little interest to it.

I stamped the word "hugs" in black ink, die cut it with the coordinating die and used foam tape to adhere it to the card.

The butterfly was die cut from white cardstock and inked with green and teal dye inks.  I glued this to the card just above the word "hugs".

To finish the card, I added some clear Fairy Drops to give it a little sparkle!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!

Masculine Thank You Card
by Angie Cimbalo

2 20th close

Welcome, it's Angie here today with a masculine card using three different 3D embossing folders.  This card would be perfect for a handyman's thank you card or for any masculine thank you card you might need.  Here's a closer look:

2 20th close

First of all the frame, if you look closely is cut from a black card stock piece that was dry embossed with the "Gears" folder and then gold metallic paste was added to the raised edges.  Next I used the "Vintage Tray" die to cut the frame from that piece and also from a piece of white card stock.  I took the inside pieces and put them inside the "Vintage Tray" 3D embossing folder to get the woodgrain look and then inked each shape before paper piecing them into the openings of the black/gold frame.

The tools were cut using the dies that come with the" Toolbox" 3D embossing folder and then added them to the folder to dry emboss them.  I added a little gray ink to them and then added them to the card front, along with a "Thank You Foil Greetings" circle to finish the card.  Here's one last look:

Hope you like my card for today!  I really enjoyed creating it!  Thanks for stopping by!

Whimsical Gladiola and Upcycled Offcuts by Jean Okimoto

P1033244

Remember those saved offcuts from the April 19th card shown at the left here?

P1033273

Use the purple rectangles and the reverse side of the lavender floral rectangles to create a birthday card with the new Whimsical Gladiola.  It's a day-after-Earth-Day paperscraps celebration!  Hi, Jean here with a design featuring the extra pieces from last Friday's design.

P1033203 3

Cut the petals and background stem (with the pointy top and two large petals near the bottom) from a lavender Twilight Purple Collection 6x6.  Cut the 4 big leaf sections and the other stem from a green 6x6 in the Leafy Collection.  

Highlight and add dimension to the accent diecuts by pressing them onto a clean VersaMark inkpad and - using tweezers - carefully heat-embossing them with detail clear powder.  They'll be glossy and slightly darker than their original colors - and there's no need to find the "right" ink colors for shading.

Assemble the gladiola - glue the green stem over the lavender stem - instant buds!  Then attach the other petals.

P1033248

Build the background with the extra offcuts from my previous card.  If you don't have those pieces, cut the Glimmering Gladiola 6x6 print and a dark purple Twilight Purple Collection 6x6 with the die from the Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder Set.

Attach the offcuts to a white A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").  Add an instant greeting with a Happy Birthday Foil Greetings White Circle Tab.  Add a little more sparkle with green-gray Treasure Chest Fairy Gemstones.  Cut an A6-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Here's a link for the Glimmering Gladiola 6x6 set -

3D Embossing Folder Coloring Technique
by Laura Fulcher

IMG_4383

Greetings friends. I keep seeing a technique online for coloring embossing folder papers. I think the final look resembles a wood block stamped look. I wanted to give it a try, so I will share with you the steps that I took.

IMG_4384

To make this card, I started by embossing white cardstock with my 3D embossing folder that features butterflies. Remember to lightly spritz your cardstock with water before running it through your die cut machine so that the paper doesn't crack. Once you have your embossed paper, flip it so the flat side is up along with debossed images (the raised side will be on the bottom).

IMG_4375

Next, sponge ink over the various butterflies, leaves and flowers. You can use any inks you like. Both pigment and dye-based inks will work.  Don't worry if it is messy and if some colors end up where you didn't intend them to. To finish the look of the paper, wipe the top of the card with a black dye-based ink pad. Dye-based works better because of the hard felt pad of the ink. As you wipe the ink pad across the paper, the pad will color the top of the paper and skip over the debossed areas:

IMG_4376

Keep adding dark ink until you get the look that you want. For my finished card, I cut out my favorite part of the paper, added some layers of cardstock and my sentiment.

You can even skip the ink sponging step if you want a simpler look. Here is embossed white cardstock with black ink rubbed on top:

IMG_4382

Here are some close ups of the other finished cards:

I hope you will give the technique a try if you haven't already. It is an easy way to create a lot of cards in a short amount of time. Have a great weekend!

Flower Birthday Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  Using the Cheerful Floral set of supplies make it quick and easy to create stunning floral cards.  

6FDE2666-4CEB-4500-8796-CED9615F92D6_1_201_a

Flower center:

Stamp and Bold Cheerful Floral Clear flower and leaves using Distress Oxide inks.  For the flower I used Spun Sugar, Ketch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry and used 2nd generation and double stamping of the same ink to get the different layers of color.  For the leaves use Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss.  Fussy cut the leaves and die cut the flower using the matching die from the 3D embossing folder.  

5B2639F9-A2CE-495C-9C30-52DD1564C6A9_1_201_a

Background:

Use a A2 size white heavy card stock to 3D emboss using the Chearful floral 3D Embossing folder.  Trim down the panel to 4" x 5 1/4". Adhere the stamped images over the matching areas.  Splatter using a gold metallic paint. 

Assembly:

Adhere the panel to a black A2 size panel and adhere to an A2 size white card.  Add a black Happy Birthday Greeting Tab to the bottom left side of the center flower.  Add some pink gems from the Pastel Fairy Jewels.

5 Minute Cardmaking Tutorial
by Theary Chea

Hello there! It's Theary back on the blog again today. I want to share an easy five-minute card technique for today's project. Let's get started!

IMG_9570 (1)

To start, I am using the SP1013 Color Wheel Paper Pad in Sunrise and selected a few of the sheets from the pad to use with EF1025 Cheerful Floral 3D Embossing Folder & Cutting Die. I ran each sheet using my manual die-cutting machine. 

After all the sheets have been embossed, use the embossing folder. I lightly ran over the embossed areas with a white pigment ink. This will give the overall texture a little bit of interest.

IMG_9567

I then splattered the card panel using white paint. 

Lastly, I added a sentiment tab from ST006 Happy Birthday Foil Greetings White Tabs and adhered it to a top folding card base. 

IMG_9564 (1)

And that's it! It's super simple but so effective! I made fours in less than 20 minutes. I hope you give this technique a try!

Have a wonderful day!
