I diecut the blossoms using two different sizes of dies from the Stampin' Up! (SU) "Swirly Squiggles" Thinlits dies, from alternating paper colors for same family of colors, but different intensities. I glued each die cut onto a scrap of it's same-family color cardstock, then using paper snips, cut close to the outside edge of each die cut. For the larger blossoms, I cut off the outer ring of the blossom die cut, and glued the smaller die cut inside the larger before trimming around the outside of the larger blossom.

Using a 4"x 5.25" SU Smoky Slate panel as my card front, I then attached some of these blossoms directly on the panel with Tombow glue, and attached others using adhesive foam strips to give more depth.

The sentiment was stamped using SU Melon Mambo ink, and two enamel dots were added in the empty space to the left of the sentiment for balance. I used my MISTI to stamp the birthday sentiment three times to ensure it was a solid color.

This completed front panel was then glued to the SU Melon Mambo card base using Tombow glue.

The card was pretty straightforward to make, so I am rating its difficulty level as a "1" out of a possible "5".

What's more masculine than a card made with metallic gears, cutout gears, and wood???  The card base is Stampin' Up Crumb Cake cardstock stamped with the retired SU "Hardwood" background stamp using SU Early Espresso ink. 

The metallic panel was created by taping two strips of 1-7/8" wide roll of silver furnace tape (from Home Depot) onto a 4"x 5" piece of scrap cardstock. Be sure to press it down firmly to get most of the wrinkles out. It doesn't have to be perfectly smooth since in the next step you run it through a Big …

A Woman's Place is at the Beach!

This card was made for Retro Rubber Challenge Blog #92 (#rrcb92) whose theme is "Life's a Beach").

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #182 with the theme of "feminine anything goes".

I have a 1991 stamp that is just perfect for making ocean waves,,,, and I've discovered it does a fair job a making sandy beaches, too! This stamp is a wood mounted "waves" pattern made by a company called Purple Waves in Ventura, California. I can't find them online, so they must have gone out of business. But thank goodness I found this great stamp before they did!
I used the emboss resist technique for both the ocean and the beach. This technique consists of stamping with Versamark, then heat embossing with either clear or colored powder. After the card cools, you can sponge colors over the top of the heat embossed area to allow you to see through the embossed pattern to the cardstock color below, or to complement the color of your embossing powder. For my…

52 Christmas Card Throwdown Sketch Challenge #1-19.

When I saw the sketch, right away I knew I wanted to add the "sentiment" by using the white-on-white technique of die cutting the "Merry Christmas" words in white, then mounting them on the white card background. Adhering diecut words is always a challenge, but I used My Xyron with a permanent adhesive cartridge, then rubbed off the excess glue white the words were still on their wax paper ba…
