Hooray for Everyone

Yesterday marked a big moment for one of our good friends that had his grand opening of his new location for Signs 2 U.  My husband's band, Innocent Man, played and the kids danced.  Everyone was very happy for Uncle Moxto and his success and the event was truly a shining example of his personality and talent.

That event has inspired me to post the two cards made as I was focused on the happy in Hooray!  These were also April camp cards.  As you may have read before, I challenged myself for my April camps to make two cards using the same set of supplies to show how versatile our products are.  I think you'll agree that for sharing the same ink, stamp set, and designer series paper, these two cards do not look much alike...  Isn't that awesome?

  • Cardstock/DSP: Painted Petals DSP, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
  • Ink: Wild Wasabi
  • Stamp Set: Hooray it's your Day
  • Accessories: Daffodil Delight Cotton Ribbon,  Scissors, Dimensionals, and Adhesive
  • Layer the strip of Wild Wasabi to the card using dimensionals.
  • Wrap one piece of 6" ribbon around the center of the DSP.  Attach the ends with adhesive.  Layer this piece onto the card using dimensionals.
  • Stamp the saying on the small piece of Whisper White using Wild Wasabi.  Layer on the square of Wild Wasabi.
  • Tie the 2nd piece of cotton ribbon onto the first and trim the ends.  
  • Cardstock/DSP: Painted Petals DSP, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
  • Ink: Wild Wasabi
  • Stamp Set: Hooray it's your Day
  • Accessories: Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and Cutting Mats, Starburst Framelits, Painted Cotton Twine, Scallop Edge Border Punch,  Scissors, and Adhesive and Glue Dots
  • Layer the Wild Wasabi and DSP to the card as shown using adhesive.
  • Stamp the saying of your choice to the left of the Whisper White strip.
  • Run the small piece of Rose Red through the Scallop punch and attach to the white strip using adhesive.
  • Attach the starburst to the back of the white strip so that it surround your stamped saying.
  • Pull the Wild Wasabi twine into two strings.    Wrap one around the White cardstock and attach to the back using adhesive.  You'll have to trim it.  Tie the second piece in a bow and layer on the twine using a glue dot.  Layer on card with adhesive or dimensionals. 
A few notes.
1 - If you cut two strings of ribbon, you can adhere one to the back of the DSP and then use the second to tie the bow or knot.  That takes the frustration out of it for customers and demonstrators alike, while also cutting down on your waste.
2 - If you'd like a softer bow with the cotton twine (which is a MUST HAVE), separate the string into two pieces.  You get twice as much use from the twine and also get a small, soft bow.

As a final note, both of these cards were originally designed to use items from the Artisan Embellishment kit.  While no longer available, I wanted to share those two projects as well for those that have purchased them!  The boy card has the silver button from the kit and the girl birthday has the beautiful Rose Red lace ribbon!

Have a craftastic day,
