Two Rosy Thank Yous

Everything is Rosy kit is packed with gorgeous papers. It’s so simple to make a gorgeous card adding nothing but Whisper White card stock and an envelope. I have two examples that do just that. Both cards start with a 4-1/8″x 5-3/8″ piece of the Rose Gold foil as the first layer. Before I added the layer to the card base, I die cut the leaf sprays from the center to conserve paper. No one will ever know there is a piece or two missing from your layer. The next layers are DSP from the kit cut to 4″x 5-1/4″.

Night of Navy Card

For the first card, I adhered the leafy sprays starting in the lower left corner using liquid glue. Next, I layered a scrap of the rose gold foil over the part where the sprays joined. I added a piece of the navy ribbon on top of that.

Then, I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy on one of the foil edged labels. Dimensional lift the sentiment slightly to add interest. The flowers came from a different piece of the DSP cut using one of the dies. They’re also adhered with Dimensionals.

Finally, because I can’t finish a card without a last embellishment, I painted three basic pearls with the Rose Gold shimmer paint that came in the kit. I let them dry for a bout fifteen minutes before I added them to the card. I’m thrilled that I can make customized pearls this way.

Melon Mambo Card

The second card uses a scrap of the DSP turned over to the “plain” side – no foil on top of the foil leafy sprays. Over the DSP strip, I added a piece of the ruched Melon Mambo ribbon.

Again, thank you is stamped in Night of Navy. The preprinted flowers are from the kit. I added three painted pearls to this card as well. Two gorgeous cards that are fast to make and don’t need a huge craft stash to make them.

Delightfully Simple Cards

These two cards use the Delightfully Detailed Memories and More Card Pack in the Annual Catalog. Paired with the Memories and More Cards and Envelopes, you can have two beautiful cards ready to use in minutes.

The large card uses three cards from the pack. The smoky background is a large card that I adhered to the card base. Then I added the small marbled pattern card at an angle. I cut a 1/4″ from each side of the black starry card because I wanted to see more of the card underneath.

The sentiment is a sticker from the set on a left over Paper Pumpkin banner. I popped it on with Dimensionals for added interest. You can stamp a second sentiment inside or leave it blank for a longer note. Simple and dramatic.

The next card uses the Small card base and three cards from the pack. Again, I started with the smoky background. Next, I cut a strip from the second card 1-1/2″ wide and then used the Triple Banner Punch to fishtail both ends. I finished the card by punching the sentiment from the third card using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch. That layer uses Dimensionals. It’s a small card so I left it blank inside for a handwritten note. Pretty and easy!

One Sheet Wonder Preview

Pretty paper. We love to collect it. But what is the point of buying DSP (Designer Series Paper) to hide it away in our craft rooms until we forget we have it? No, she who dies with the most paper doesn’t win. She who sends the most beautiful cards to friends and family does! With that in mind, I came up with a simple one sheet wonder layout for a 6×6 DSP. You could always repeat it four for a 12×12. I’ll try to come up with a 12×12 layout soon as well.

What is a one sheet wonder? Glad you asked. It’s a way of cutting the paper so that there is zero waste. For my layout you can create five cards from one sheet. I’m showing you two cards today. If you want the layout with examples, subscribe to my blog by entering your email address in the side bar on the right. You’ll get a PDF with the layout and cutting instructions, Five sketches for the cards and a sample card image of each sketch. If you’re already a subscriber, just post a comment to this post or send me an email and I will respond to you with the file.

Here are the first two cards I made.

This card uses a base of Whisper White. A layer of Lovely Lipstick embossed using the Tufted dynamic embossing folder. A piece of the Grapefruit Grove foil paper that is free with a qualifying Sale-a-Bration order and the first cut from the Garden Impressions DSP. I also added a sentiment from the Just Because hostess stamp set and die cut it with the Layering Ovals. The stamp set is in the Occasions catalog and is available with a qualifying order or if you host a qualifying event. Events can be done virtually, online. Finally, I added a bit of Whisper White sheer ribbon. This is a great card for Valentines or Galentines day.

Card two uses the same papers, embossing folder, and stamp set. I used Staz-On Black ink for the sentiment and colored in the image with Lovely Lipstick and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write markers. I added a few pearls to embellish the final card.

One sheet wonder cards are a great way to maximize your supplies and your time. The cards can be as simple or elaborate as you want to make them. I think my samples are somewhere in between.
