Letterboard Wishes

Continuing with Birthday/Celebration Week, I have another card to share with you today that is easy to customize for your favorite birthday girl or boy.

Fun Birthday card that is easy to customize and fit to any person.  Featuring Fun Stampers Journey Letterboard Sentiments Stamp Set, and For You Die Set.

Today's card features the Letterboard Sentiments Stamp Set, and the For You Die Set.

I stamped two Whip Cream panels with the Make A Wish sentiment.  I started in the middle of the card stock, stamping in my mid-tone ink, and then stamped an additional two times below, and two times above the fist stamping.  I then stamped my lighter tone to the top of the page, and then the darker tone to the bottom.  This created a semi-ombre style sentiment tower on the card.

I die cut the For You gift boxes die six times total, and stacked three die cuts together for each card.  I used the Journey Craft Glue to adhere the die cuts together.  Once the adhesive was dry, I used the blending brush and a small amount of water to brush on the Sparkle Silk.  I adhered the completed die cuts to the card fronts with Journey Craft Glue, then mounted each card front to a card base made with the coordinating mid-tone card stock.

This would be easy to recreate in a ton of colors, and there are a lot of fun sentiments that you could stack like this in the Letterboard Sentiments set, so you could change out the sentiment for a card more geared towards graduation, a wedding or engagement, or just a general celebration.

Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,

Make A Wish Birthday Card

Birthday cards are some of the most fun cards to make.  This week, I'll be sharing birthday & celebration cards with you.   Starting today with this super fun (and super pink!) birthday card.  

Super fun, and sparkling, birthday card - created with the Fun Stampers Journey Make A Wish ATS, and Graduated Dots stamps.

Today's card features the Make A Wish ATS stamp set, and the Graduated Dots stamp on this card.  As always, a full product list is at the bottom of this post.


I began the card front, by ink blending Bubble Gum and Sweet Berry inks up the piece of Bubble Gum Card Stock.  I made sure the ink was completely dry, then stamped the Graduated Dots stamp with Clear Embossing Ink, and applied a custom mix of 2 parts Clear Embossing Powder, and 1 part Sparkle Dust (the small container I store that in, shown in the video, was purchased from the dollar store).  I heat set the background stamp using my heat gun.    

Super fun, and sparkling, birthday card - created with the Fun Stampers Journey Make A Wish ATS, and Graduated Dots stamps.

I stamped and heat embossed the Make A Wish ATS stamp, using Rose Gold Embossing Powder, onto Whip Cream Card Stock.  I die cut that out with the Treat Label die set, and attached foam squares to the back.  I tied a piece of Bubble Gum Satin Ribbon around the card front, and tied it into a bow, before adhering the sentiment panel over that.  A few scattered pearls finished the card off.

This super glitzy card was fun to make, and my inner magpie loves the glitter.

Autumn Smile

We're definitely in Idaho Autumn here.  Temperatures are bouncing back and forth, and people in my hometown are already posting photos of snow!  Meanwhile, at my house, my front lawn has been turned into a Halloween play land.  The neighborhood kids all love to come walk through the yard each afternoon, and I get messages from my neighbors of their littles staring out the window at all the blowups.


For some reason, it popped into my head the other day that I really needed to stamp the Flannel Life stamp in Buttercream ink on Green Olive card stock.  So, I did.  I had zero idea where this card was going beyond that step when I started, but all things have to start somewhere, right?

Autumn Colors, and a cozy flannel background make a fun fall card.  Stamped with Fun Stampers Journey Cottage Bouquet, and Flannel Life Stamps.

I chose to make my focal panel using the Cottage Bouquet Stamp Set.  I heat embossed my sentiment first, on a die cut oval, then stamped and created a mask for the first flower (the one colored Raspberry Berry).  I then stamped the additional flowers surrounding the first image.  Using a small dry paint brush, I colored the images with PanPastels.  (I created the orange tone by sandwiching a layer of Raspberry Berry between two layers of Summer Days.) 

Autumn Colors, and a cozy flannel background make a fun fall card.  Stamped with Fun Stampers Journey Cottage Bouquet, and Flannel Life Stamps.

I layered a dry embossed strip of Pumpkin Bread card stock over the flannel background, and tied a piece of Oatmeal Cookie Organza ribbon around the panel, then added my sentiment piece on foam squares.  The card front was adhered to a Whip Cream card base.

Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,

Winter Build-A-Scene Card | Video

I love cards that allow me to use them for a variety of things.  It makes it easy to be able to pull out a card for a birthday, thinking of you, or holiday, when the card is not defined to a specific occasion.  Even when it's seasonal, you can still use it for a variety of things during that season.

This fun wintery card was created using the Fun Stampers Journey Winter Build-A-Scene ATS, PanPastels, and other supplies.  Video instruction walks you through the creation of the card.

Today's card is one of those types of cards.  Despite the wintery scene, it can be sent for far more reasons than just a Christmas card.  


I created the background by inking my panel, and then applying PanPastels and Sparkle Silk.  I stamped the elements along a traced curve, before adhering my hillside to the card.  Sparkle Dust applied to the hillside, gave a shimmery frost to the "snow".

I loved the finished card.  That night sky is so pretty!  Who would you send this card to?
