Noah's Ark Card


Today on my blog I am sharing a Noah’s Ark card that I made using the Ark2Stamp set from The Stamps of Life. The stamp is a large stamp and, as you can see from the picture, it fits nicely on an A2 sized card. There is a also a matching die set to go along with it. I colored the stamped image with Spectrum Noir markers.

“Just a Note” Raccoon Pudgie


Hello!Today on my blog is a masculine card. I made this card for my 15-year old son. He is flying to Dallas with his dad to test for his third degree senior black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Since I cannot be there to watch him test, this card is going in his suitcase so he will find it when he gets there. It’s just my way of sending him my love, happy thoughts, and encouragement (not that he needs it).

Okay…now for the supplies used…

The card base is the Sizzix Rectangle/Gift Card Flip-its Card Set (#660714) by Stephanie Barnard. The neat thing about this flip-it card is that you can make the middle rectangle part turn into a gift card holder, but I chose not to use it in this way. I just used the card base and the two decorative panels. I cut the card base out of Licorice card stock from The Stamps of Life. The two side panels were cut out of a piece of patterned paper from the Sweetheart collection patterned paper pad. Those panels were adhered using double-sided tape. The rectangle in the middle was cut from a piece of paper from the same patterned paper pad using a stitched rectangle die.

I used the “Just a Note” sentiment from the words4jar stamp set and stamped it onto the same gray paper that was used to cut out the stitched rectangle. The ink used was Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink. I applied double-sided adhesive behind the sentiment and then die cut it using the coordinating die from the words4jar dies. The shadow layer was cut from Licorice card stock. The sentiment was adhered to the shadow layer and then adhered to the stitched rectangle.

The stamp used for this card is the raccoonpudgie23. I colored it with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and then used the coordinating die cut to cut it out. (I cannot find this stamp anywhere on The Stamps of Life website. I don’t believe they sell it since it was given as a gift at one of their classes.)

To finish off this card, black embellishments from The Stamps of Life were added.
