Here’s my first creation with the He’s All That Bundle. I made this card for my hubby’s birthday the end of May. We’ve had a busy past two weeks as we traveled back to the east coast. We spent a week at the beach in Fenwick, DE with Chris’s family. Since rental cars were priced so crazy, we decided to drive. Just returned yesterday and I’m up to my ears in laundry today!
Decided to post this birthday card today since it would have been my Dad’s 92nd birthday. Sadly he passed the end of 2018. The “He’s The Man” DSP reminds me of my dad since many of the images are of the outdoors and cars (he was such a car enthusiast!). This DSP is printed in such a way that it appears to have “texture”. I used Sahara Sand and Early Espresso colors to coordinate with the DSP. The image was stamped and then die cut and this particular die adds an embossed edge to the cut out shape. To finish the card, I added a knotted bow of Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim and a few of the NEW Rustic Metallic Adhesive Dots. The He’s All That Bundle makes creating masculine cards super easy!
This is my third creation with the Sending Smiles Bundle. This bundle has some terrific images and die cuts! For this card, I also utilized the Split Card Textures Dies and the a piece of retired DSP under the cut out area. I used an adhesive sheet on the Melon Mambo card stock before die cutting the “Sending” word. This was then adhered to a Vellum shadow layer. The colors used on this card besides Melon Mambo are Mango Melody and Parakeet Party (a new “In Color”). The two small flowers are popped up on dimensionals. The finishing touches on this card are three of the Brushed Brass Butterflies and a touch of Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the flower centers. Thanks to the Split Card Texture Dies, this is a pretty simple and stunning card to create!
This is my second creation with the Sending Smiles bundle. I saw a very similar card on another site, but can’t remember the creator to give them credit for the inspiration. The basic layout is the same, but I changed up the colors on the flowers. The Stylish Shapes dies were used to cut a window in the piece of DSP from the “Tea Boutique” Designer Series Paper.
Growing up and living most of my life in Maryland, I always loved Maryland’s state flower, the Black-eyed Susan. I used Mango Melody (stamped off, then “huffed” on) for the flower petals. The flower centers are stamped in Soft Suede so the flower resembles a Black-Eyed Susan. The remaining colors used are Sweet Sorbet and Garden Green. The greeting “A Note of Thanks” was also stamped with Sweet Sorbet, then die cut with the long rectangle from the “Sending” dies. A small white baker’s twine bow is behind the greeting panel. I then popped up the greeting on dimensionals and accented with an Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewel. A super simple and easy card!
