The background for this card was creating using a mask. I tend to make my masks using the white cardboard that comes in the Designer Series Paper packs. I cut the mask to the size of my card front in this case 3 3/4″ x 5″. I then die cut a hole using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits (or any other shape you’d like).
The colors used for the background, starting at the bottom, are Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point and Night of Navy. These are sponged onto the cardstock once the mask is in place. I then sprinkled a few water drops on the sponged area and dabbed with a paper towel.
The couple and sentiment are stamped with Jet Black StaZon.
The image panel measures 3 3/4″ x 5. This is mounted on Basic Black cardstock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″. The base is Pacific Point cardstock measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.

Hi! Today I have a card that takes me back to my childhood. I bought this set shortly after it came out in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and hadn’t played with it until recently (this is what happens when there are so many awesome products to play with – hard to choose!)
I loved to swing as a kid and this little girl brought back so many sweet memories of playing in the park. I was lucky to live within walking distance of the town park where I grew up – and playing on the swings, slides and monkey bars with friends was so much fun.
For the background on this card, I sponged Crushed Curry on the bottom, followed by Rich Razzleberry and ending with Pacific Point. Going for a setting sun type of look.
This stamp set has a coordinating set of dies – and the tree is one of the dies in the set. For this card, it was cut from Basic Black Cardstock. I set the tree on the sponged background to give me an idea of where to stamp the swing – then moved it before stamping. The swing is stamped in Jet Black StazOn. Given how big the tree and branches are, a little trimming needed to happen before attaching the image panel to the Basic Black mat.
The base for the card is Pacific Point – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half.
While this stamp set and coordinating dies are carrying over to the 2020 Annual Catalog – the 10% bundle price is not. So, if this bundle is on your list, consider picking it up now, and save 10%!
Hi! Back today with another card featuring the adorable Animal Outing bundle.
The sunset is created by placing a template that had a circle die cut out of it over a Whisper White panel that measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4″. I sponged Pineapple Punch and Grapefruit Grove for my sun.
The Rhino and Giraffe were stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and die cut using the coordinating framelits. Stampin’ Blends were used to color the animals – Smoky Slate both light and dark, Calypso Coral ligh and Pool Party light were used for the Rhino and bird while Daffodil Delight light and Crumb Cake light were used for the Giraffe.
The sentiment stamps are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink on Old Olive card stock. This is then punched using the Classic Label punch.
The Whisper White panel is matted by a Basic Black panel measuring 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″. The base is Thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.
