Totally Awesome 80s Cards

Going back to the 80s for this post. Some of you may too young to have experienced the fun of the 80s, but these composition notebook stamps and dies from Catherine Pooler remind us all of our schooldays as youngsters. And while the fashion of the 80s was pretty horrible (in my opinion), there was nothing like a new composition notebook to start a new year of school.

These cards would be fun to make with kids who are currently stuck at home. You can make the notebooks any color and tons of different items in the shaker (maybe some glitter?).

I started this card by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ and a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Card Stock to 5/8 x 5-1/2″. I stamped the Catherine Pooler Designs Composition Notebook Background Stamp using Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink onto the white panel. I diecut the shaker window using the Catherine Pooler Designs Composition Label Dies. I adhered the black strip to the left side of the card panel.

Card 1 Front

I stamped the sentiment from the Catherine Pooler Designs Composition Sentiments Stamp Set as well as the label border onto a piece of Grafix Wet Media .004 Dura-Lar Film, 14-Inch by 17-Inch using Jet Black Staz-on Ink. I combined the “YOU’RE” from the “YOU’RE COOL” sentiment with the “AWESOME”. Next, I adhered the acetate to the back of the window using 1/4″ Scor-Pal Scor-Tape and cut away any access. I also added 3M Foam Tape to the back of the panel to create the shaker area.

For the shaker bits, I used the direct-to paper technique to add color to some pieces of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″. I used Catherine Pooler Designs Inks in Party Dress, Rockin Red, Orange Twist, Tiara, Lime Rickey, Fiesta Blue, Suede Shoes and Grape Crush. I diecut stars and hearts using the dies included in the Catherine Pooler Designs Composition Label Dies and stamped the happy face from the Catherine Pooler Designs Composition Sentiments Stamp Set onto a few of the colored papers and used a circle punch to cut them out. I added all the shaker bits inside the window and adhered a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to the back of the window and adhered it to the card base. I finished it off by adding a few extra shaker bits (happy face and stars) around the sentiment window.

For the inside of the card, I stamped a Lined Notebook Background from My Favorite Things (unfortunately, I think this stamp is no longer available) using Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink. Then I stamped another sentiment from the Catherine Pooler Designs Composition Sentiments Stamp Set in Fiesta Blue and added some of the leftover hearts that I had diecut previously.

For the second card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ and a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Card Stock to 5/8 x 5-1/2″. I stamped the happy face and small star from the Catherine Pooler Designs Composition Sentiments Stamp Set onto the panel. I used Catherine Pooler Designs Inks in Be Mine, Rockin Red, Orange Twist, Tiara, Lime Rickey, Fiesta Blue, Something Borrowed and Grape Crush to create a rainbow colored background.

Card 2 Front

Next, I diecut the edge of the card panel using the Catherine Pooler Designs Spiral Notebook Border Die and added the strip of black card stock behind it.

I diecut 3 of the labels from the Catherine Pooler Designs Composition Label Dies. I cut the smallest one from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and two from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Card Stock. I stamped a sentiment and the lines from the label stamp from the Catherine Pooler Designs Composition Sentiments Stamp Set on the smallest label with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink. To make the orange label piece I used the direct-to-paper technique with Orange Twist Ink. I adhered the top white label to the orange label and that to the black one, offsetting it a bit so it looks like a shadow. And then all that was adhered to the card using some 3M Foam Tape. Before adhering it to the card base, I added some Love From Lizi Lilac Mirror Peel-offs. I adhered it to the card base at an angle and snipped off the parts that hung over the edges. To finish it off, I added some of the stars I diecut for the previous card. I diecut a ton of them. As you can see I also used them for my picture background. 🙂

Card 2 Closeup

On the inside of the card I stamped a sentiment from the Catherine Pooler Designs Composition Sentiments Stamp Set with Grape Crush Ink. I also stamped the happy face with Be Mine, Rockin Red, Orange Twist, Tiara, Lime Rickey, Fiesta Blue, and Something Borrowed inks. And that completes this card. I had sooo much fun playing with these stamps and dies. Brought me back to my childhood. Oh to be young again….

When Life Gives You Lemons Make Lemonade…

Hello friends. Hope you are all safe and healthy. And if you are struggling to cope with everything going on in our world right now, hang in there because ‘this too shall pass’. Speaking of old adages, “When Life Gives You Lemons Make Lemonade” is very fitting for these times we are in as well. While it’s very easy to focus on the scary and sad stuff going on, we have to find the bright spots too — the healthcare workers saving lives, families coming together, babies being born, spending time with our pets (one of my faves right now)…

These bright and cheerful cards were made using the Catherine Pooler Designs Make Lemonade Stampset (Out of stock-maybe discontinued). It was a limited release in March, I believe. It’s a tiny stampset but was super fun to color. I made one of them into a shaker (a tiny shaker:)).

For the first card, I began by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4. I stamped the image onto a scrap of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and set it aside to dry.

I stamped the flower outline from the stampset with Catherine Pooler Designs Limoncello Ink onto the card base. Next, I diecut another piece with Catherine Pooler Designs Composition Label Dies and then used a direct-to-paper technique to add color with Catherine Pooler Designs Party Dress Ink Pad. I adhered the label shape to the pink cardstock and trimmed around, leaving a border.

Next, I colored the image with COPICS. I used BG000 + 0 for the bottle; Y11 +Y06 + Y13 for the lemons; Y11 +Y06 + Y13 + Y15 for the sliced lemon; YG06 + YG07 for the leaves; RV09 and Y06 + Y15 for the straw; RV10 + RV11 + RV14 for the flowers. I stamped the bubbles with Catherine Pooler Designs It’s A Boy Ink. I fussycut the image out.

I stamped the sentiment onto the top left corner of the label shape with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the image to the label with Tombow Mono Liquid Glue and popped up the whole thing with 3M Foam Tape. I finished off the card by adding dots of Nuvo Sea Breeze Jewel Drops to simulate bubbles, Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops and some Nuvo Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops around the tag.

Card Inside

I kept the inside of the card very simple. I stamped the image with the Catherine Pooler Designs Limoncello Ink.

Dimensions


For the second card, I decided to make a shaker card. I love shaker cards, even if they are a bit of a pain to mail. They are just fun to make and shake! I started by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Orange Peel, 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Next, I cut a piece of Catherine Pooler Designs – 6 x 6 Patterned Paper – Black Tie Gala to 3-1/2 x 4-3/4″ and rounded the corners of that panel and the card base with my We R Memory 1/4 & 1/2″ Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper. I also colored the paper with Catherine Pooler Designs Lime Rickey Ink and adhered it to the card base.

I diecut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Catherine Pooler Designs Sprinkles Mini Cover Plate Die, I stamped the sentiment from the stampset onto the smallest white rectangle and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the image onto a scrap of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and set it aside to dry. I colored it with COPICS. I used Y13 + YG03 + YG01 + YG25 for the lime on the left; B0000 + 0 for the bottle; YR16 + YR18 and YG03 + YG25 for the straw; Y06 + Y18, R81 + R85, and V25 + BV17 for the flowers; and YG06 + G07 for the leaves .

I fussycut out the image and also cut the center of the bottle with a craft knife. I diecut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the

I started by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Orange Peel, 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to 5 x 7-5/8″ and scored at 3-13/16″ to make a card base. Next, I cut a piece of Catherine Pooler Designs – 6 x 6 Patterned Paper – Black Tie Gala to 3-1/2 x 4-3/4″ and rounded the corners of that panel and the card base with my We R Memory 1/4 & 1/2″ Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper. I also colored the paper with Catherine Pooler Designs Lime Rickey Ink and adhered it to the card base.

I diecut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Catherine Pooler Designs Sprinkles Mini Cover Plate Die. I used Catherine Pooler Designs It’s A Boy Ink and an ink blender tool to add color to the panel. I used a very light hand to make it very pale blue. I cut it down to a size that would fit the window in the bottle. Then I also ink blended and other piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and adhered it behind the piece that I previously diecut and ink blended.

I added a piece of acetate behind the shaker window in the bottle, some 3M Foam Tape, and some flat clear sequins from my stash added it to the card. I finished it off by adding some Nuvo Sea Breeze Jewel Drops around the card.

On the inside of the card, I cut out a panel of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ and a left over piece of the pattern paper to 3/4 x 3-1/2″ and adhered it to the bottom of the panel, then rounded the corners before adhereing it to the card base.

Cute Valentine’s Day Card Featuring Waffle Flower Stamps

Hello friends. This cute little card features musical bugs from the Waffle Flower Rock On Stampset as well as Simon Says Stamp Grid Play Alphas Set (no longer available) and cute Valentine’s Day pattern paper (all which came in the Crafty Parcel I purchased from Simon Says Stamp). If you haven’t tried the crafty parcel from Simon, you should give it a try once. I received lots of unexpected supplies I wouldn’t normally purchase for myself but was happy to try.

Front view

For this card I began by cutting a piece of Stampin’ Up! Real Red 8 1/2 x 11” Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″and scored at 4-1/4″. Then cut a piece of the hearts pattern paper (from Valentine’s Day paper included in the Crafty Parcel) to 3-5/8H x 4”W (left side) and 2”H x 4”W (right side), creating a diagonal cut and grid pattern paper (from the same paper pad) to 1-7/16 x 4” (left side) and 3-5/16 x 4” (right side) and adhered them to the card panel using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. Then added some Love From Lizi Red Glitter Peel-offs where the two pieces meet.

I stamped 3 of the musical bugs from the Waffle Flower Rock On Stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them using COPIC markers. I used the following colors:

  • Bugs = C3 and C7
  • Accordian = E000 and E40; E37 and E29
  • Wings = BG000 and Blender 0
  • Horn = Y13 and Y18
  • Drum = R17 and R27; R81 and R85

I fussycut the images out and then moved onto the sentiment. I stamped the letters L-O-V-E from the Simon Says Stamp Grid Play Alphas Set (no longer available) onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler Rockin’ Red Ink and fussycut the letters. Then I stamped “you are my #1 pick” from Waffle Flower Rock On Stampset onto a piece of Simon Says Stamp Card Stock 100# BLACK using Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder. I cut it down to 1/2 x 2″.

Closeup

I adhered the little bugs onto the card using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue for the middle one and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the two others. I adhered the LOVE sentiment towards the top of the card using 3M Foam Tape and the sentiment strip directly to the card using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. I finished it off by adding some of the musical notes from the Waffle Flower Rock On Stampset with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

On the inside of the card I cut a piece of Neenah 80lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4” and added a strip of the hearts pattern paper, measuring 3/4 x 4-1/4″, to the bottom of the panel and adhered that panel to the inside of the card. I stamped the “Happy Valentine’s Day” sentiment from the How you bean? conversation heart add-on and some little hearts from the Waffle Flower Rock On Stampset using Catherine Pooler Rockin’ Red Ink as well as some music notes from the same stampset. And that completes the card.

Use What You Have: A Valentine’s Day Card

Hello friends. For 2020, I want to try to be aware of the supplies I have in my stash and use them. I find that I have a lot of stamps that I purchase for a season or holiday or that comes in a kit and I use it once. And that’s just wasteful! Give your craft supplies some extra love this year!

For this card I featured Simon Says Stamp I Chews You Stampset. It’s a 6 x 8 stampset with tons of cute images and sentiments. It was included in the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember 2018 I Chews You Limited Edition card kit (no longer available). I haven’t had too much opportunity to use it since I bought it, so it was time. And the food characters are friggin’ adorable so I just had to, you know what I mean?!? Food brings people joy and love so a card with cute food on it is just perfect for Valentine’s Day, don’t you think?

Ok, so I started by cutting a piece of Stampin’ Up! Real Red 8 1/2 x 11” Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″and scored at 4-1/4″ for the card base, a piece of Valentine’s Day pattern paper (this came in the Crafty Parcel I purchased from Simon Says Stamp) to 4 x 5-1/4”, and a piece of Montval Acid Free Coldpress Watercolor Paper to 3-3/4 x 5”. Then, I used Ranger Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry Distress Crayon and my waterbrush (any brush will do) and created a background. I applied a few layers, letting each layer dry (use a heat gun if you are inpatient like me), until I got the color I wanted. It was my first time using the Distress Crayons and I was not expecting to like them but they are actually pretty cool and work well.

While that panel dried, I stamped a bunch of the food characters from the Simon Says Stamp I Chews You Stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. It was so hard to choose which ones too use. I love them all soo much!!! I colored them with COPIC markers. I used Y00 and Y13 for the pizza crust, E40, E53 and YR09 for the top of the pizza, and YR09 for the pepperoni and G99 for the peppers. I used E53 and E57 for the cinnabun and pretzel; R17 and R29 for the gumball machine, BG00 and 0 for the glass on it, C1, C5, and C7 for the metal parts, and R81, R83, R17, R29, C00 and 0 for the gumballs; G43 and G99 for the pickle; Y13, Y15, and Y18 for the taco shell, G42 and G99 for the lettuce and YR09 and R17 for the tomato. And BG000 and BG01 for the cupcake wrapper, R81, R83, and R85 for the cupcake and R29 and G43 for the sprinkles.

Once the watercolor panel was dry, I used Wendy Vecchi WHITE Embossing Paste and American Crafts Heidi Swapp Stencil 6 X6 Polka Dot and applied it in some places on the panel. Then I sprinkled Ruby Red Martha Stewart Glitter on top of it. Once the paste was all dry I shook off the excess glitter. Unfortunately, most of the glitter shook off so I rubbed some Ranger Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry Distress Crayon to the raised areas.

I adhered the hearts pattern paper to the card base and the watercolor panel to that paper. Then proceeded to fussycut the images and adhered them to the bottom of the card using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. I popped up a couple of the images with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also added a shadow under the images using COPIC markers C3, C5 and the blender.

I stamped “Hugs & Kisses” onto a piece of Simon Says Stamp Card Stock 100# BLACK with Versamark Ink and WOW Embossing Powder Opaque Bright White Super Fine. The sentiment is from an old stampset but I don’t where it came from because when I started crafting I didn’t save the backing or note the company 🙁 I cut the piece down to 1 x 3-1/2″, cut the right side into a banner edge and adhered to the panel using. I finished it off by punching some tiny hearts from Stampin’ Up! Real Red 8 1/2 x 11” Cardstock using the Stampin’ Up! Owl Builder Punch (retired). You can use any tiny heart dies you may have.

For the inside for the card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4” and a piece of the pattern paper to 1 x 5-1/4”. I stamped Happy Valentine’s Day from the Lawn Fawn happy happy happy Add-on stampset with Black Memento Ink and added some more of the little hearts to complete the inside of this card.
