Scalloped Note Cards Set

One of the projects for this month’s card classes includes a Scalloped Note Cards set.  The 20 card package of Scalloped Note Cards and Envelopes comes in four colors.  The colors are Terracotta Tile, Balmy Blue, Light Pink and Old Olive.  Each attendee will receive one of each color so they can create a four card Scalloped Note Cards set.  Using components from the Magnolia Lane Suite as the main decor theme, each card coordinates yet differs slightly in appearance and with differing sentiments.  For details on the cards, scroll below the card photo.

On To Adventure Birthday Card

Today is my husband’s birthday so I decided to use the On to Adventure stamp set stamp set to create his birthday card.  Since his retirement, he spends several days a week playing golf.  So when I saw the On To Adventure stamp set, I knew the golfer would get lots of use.  The Well Written Dies provide the birthday greeting and help keep the focus on the golfer.  If you’ve not seen the set, be sure to check it out in the Annual Catalog on page 28.  In addition to the golfer, there are three other stamps that can be combined with other sets to create fun cards.  And the Well Written dies provide a variety of sentiment options.

Masculine Birthday Card

Card Details:
  • Night of Navy cardstock (8-1/2″ x 5-12″, scored & folded at 4-1/4″) creates the card base.
  • A 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of  See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper is the second layer.
  • Card front layer is Whisper White cardstock (3-3/4″ x 5″).
  • With Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the golfer onto a 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Color, as desired, with Stampin’ Blends.  The Stampin’ Blends colors used for this card are Ivory, Dark Night of Navy, Dark Balmy Blue, Light Granny Apple Green,  Light Smoky Slate, Light and Dark Crumb Cake.  Cut using the medium circle in the Stitched Shapes Dies.  With Snail Adhesive, layer onto a Night of Navy cardstock circle cut using the Layering Circles Dies.
  • Cut sentiment from of Night of Navy cardstock using the Well Written Dies.  To adhere to the card front, lightly sponge Multipurpose Liquid Glue onto the back of each word and place on the card front.  TIP: use a sponge dauber.  Rinse after use then label the dauber to use specifically for applying liquid glue.
  • Crisscross Braided Linen trim across upper portion of card.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the golfer to the card over the crisscross.  

Be sure to check out all of the stamps in the On To Adventure stamp set.  The stamp designs with the shaded areas make coloring easy to do.

Another Christmas in July Project

Yay! The Hallmark Christmas in July movies kickoff this Friday so I’m celebrating with another Christmas in July project.  Since the heat definitely makes it the dog days of summer, it’s wishful thinking that thoughts of Christmas in July will make it seem cooler (yes, wishful thinking!)  Today’s project again uses the Lots of Cheer Stamp Set.  Since my first Christmas in July project was a card, I decided on a small gift packaging project.  An oval label stamped with the Lots of Cheer snowman packages embellishes the Kraft Pillow Box.  The pillow boxes make great gift packaging.  They are 5″ x 3″ and a package contains 10 boxes to use for gifts and goodies.

Christmas in July gift package

Below are the steps to create this quick and simple project.
  1. Use Real Red Classic Ink Pad and a Sponge Brayer to color the Kraft pillow box.  TIP: take the ink pad and pat it directly onto the pillow box.  Then use the sponge brayer to evenly distribute the ink on the pillow box.  Allow the ink to dry on the pillow box.
  2. While the pillow box dries, make the label.  Stamp the stack of presents onto a 3-1/2″ x 3″ piece of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Cut the shape using the large oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.
  3. Color the stamped image with Stampin’ Blends.  The light Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blend adds a hint of color along the outline edges of the presents.  Additional Stampin’ Blends colors on the project includes Call Me Clover (light & dark), Daffodil Delight (light & dark), Real Red (light & dark), Smoky Slate (light & dark) and Pumpkin Pie (dark).  If desired, use the Color Lifter to lighten the center area of the hat.
  4. With the Layering Ovals Dies, cut an oval from a 4″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Call Me Clover cardstock.  Layer the stamped image onto the oval using Snail Adhesive.
  5. Use the Banner Triple Punch to cut an angles tail on a 1″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Then, stamp the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Attach to the back of the oval label using Snail Adhesive.
  6. Open pillow box and add gift or treats.  Close ends and wrap a piece of Call Me Clover 1/8″ grosgrain ribbon around the box.  TIP: wrap so that the ends meet under where the label is to be placed.  Use Snail Adhesive to hold the attach the end of the ribbon to the pillow box.  
  7. Add the oval label to the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  TIP:  Due to the curvature of the box, it’s best to add the dimensionals to the center area of the box and add the label to the dimensionals versus adding the dimensionals directly to label before adding to the pillow box. 
  8. Tie a bow with the ribbon and add to top with mini-glue dot.
