Kind and Cozy CPC24

I just got done with this card, and I wanted to share it with you.  I used the card sketch over at Craft Project Central that comes out once a month.  This month's sketch is CPC24.  If you would like to play along, you only have a few days left.  It ends this Sunday, June 30.  You could win a free June subscription to Craft Project Central if you do make a card with the sketch and submit it!  The designer of this sketch is Kris Kilkenny, and you'll want to check out her blog, Paper Fairy.
 
I embossed a piece of Melon Mambo card stock with the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder (p. 191).  I then attached it to the front of the Melon Mambo card base.  I then embossed a square piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (p. 191), and attached it to the top of a piece of Gingham Garden DSP (p. 153).  Then, I wrapped a piece of Daffodil 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (p. 173) around where the card stock and DSP meet, and attached the ribbon ends to the back.  I cut out a triangle from the bottom of the DSP to make it look like a banner.  I then attached an "&" clip from the Hardware Clips Essentials (p. 170) to the left side of the ribbon, and attached it to the left side of the card.  I then attached a Daffodil Delight and Floral washi tape from the Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape set (p. 171) to the right side of the banner.
 
I stamped the gingham circle frame from the Kind & Cozy stamp set (p. 82) onto a piece of Whisper White card stock with Island Indigo ink.  I then inked up the "thinking of you" stamp with Melon Mambo, Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, and Pear Pizzazz markers, and stamped it to the center of the gingham frame using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (p. 197).  I attached one of the smallest pearls from the Pearl Basic Jewels pack (p. 171) to the center of each Daffodil Delight flower, too.
 
I stamped the steam part of the teacup stamp with Night of Navy ink onto the bottom right of the greeting circle.  I then punched it out with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch (p. 182), and attached it to the right side of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 175).  I then stamped the teacup onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock with Daffodil Delight ink.  I cut it out with my Paper Snips (p. 177), and attached it under the steam with a Stampin' Dimensional.

Ink:  Island Indigo & Daffodil Delight Classic pads, Melon Mambo, Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, and Night of Navy Stampin' Write markers

CPC Subscription Winner and Another Card

First off, it's time to announce the winner of the free Craft Project Central June subscription.  The name I drew is:
 

Barbara B.! 

 
Barbara, I hope you see this, because I have no way to contact you.  If I don't hear back from you by Monday morning (June 24), I'll have to draw another name.  You can email me by clicking the "Email Me" icon in the right column of this blog.
 
I've got a card to share with you, too.  I didn't realize that I hadn't posted this one yet.  It's a card that was made at my Fun & Cute Stamp Camp at the beginning of this month.  This is a super quick and easy card to make.
 
The first thing I did was stamp the four different hexagon stamps shown in the picture from the Six-Sided Sampler stamp set (p. 125) twice each.  I used Gumball Green ink on the striped hexagon, Pool Party on the polka-dot hexagon, Island Indigo on the gingham hexagon, and Smoky Slate on the linen-type hexagon.  Punch all eight of them out with the Hexagon Punch (p. 180).  You can buy the stamp set and the punch together as a bundle, and save 15%!  The bundle is on p. 125. 
 
I cut one of the Island Indigo and one of the Smoky Slate hexagons in half.  Then, I attached them onto the bottom half of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock as shown.  Make sure to leave a little space between each hexagon.  The half-hexagons go along the bottom and top rows as shown.  Once they're all attached, trim off the pieces that are hanging off of the Whisper White card stock.
 
Emboss a 4" x 2-3/4" piece of Island Indigo card stock by running it through the Big Shot (p. 184) with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder (p. 191).  Then, attach it to the top of the Whisper White layer.  Wrap a 6" piece of Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon (p. 173), and attach the ribbon ends onto the back with SNAIL adhesive (p. 174).  Then, attach it all to the Pool Party card base (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece folded in half).
 
Stamp the greeting from the Label Love stamp set (p. 33) onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock in Gumball Green ink.  I punched it out with the Artisan Label Punch (p. 181).  You can also buy this stamp set and punch together as a bundle and save 15%!  This bundle is on p. 32.  Punch out another label with the Artisan Label Punch from a scrap piece of Gumball Green card stock.  Cut the label in half from side to side, and attach one piece to the top and the other to the bottom of the back of the greeting label.  Make sure both pieces show from the front.  Attach the whole thing to the right of the card (over the ribbon) with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 175).
 
 
Stamps:  Six-Sided Sampler and Label Love sets

Ink:  Pool Party, Gumball Green, Island Indigo, and Smoky Slate Classic pads

Paper:  Pool Party, Island Indigo, Gumball Green, and Whisper White card stock

Accessories:  Big Shot, Honeycomb embossing folder, Artisan Label punch, Hexagon punch, Gumball Green 3/8" stitched satin ribbon, SNAIL Adhesive, and Stampin' Dimensionals

The Open Sea Father's Day Card

I've got one more Father's Day card to show you.  This is the one that I made my dad.  It's a Triple Time Card.  Dawn Olchefske has made a great video tutorial on this kind of card, and you can find it HERE.
 
I first stamped the ship from The Open Sea stamp set (p. 101) onto the small piece of Very Vanilla card stock in Midnight Muse ink.  I then stamped the greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (p. 44) to the right of the ship in the same ink.  Then, I layered the three Very Vanilla layers together as shown in Dawn's video.  I stamped the globe and the compass stamps from The Open Sea set in Baked Brown Sugar ink all over the three layers.  I then stamped the anchor from the same set all over the three layers with Soft Suede ink.
 
Before I took the three Very Vanilla layers apart, I ran them through the Big Shot (p. 184) with the Square Lattice embossing folder (p. 191).  I used no tabs on the Multipurpose Platform to accommodate the thickness of the three layers.  After taking them apart, I sponged the edges of all three layers with Soft Suede ink.  I attached the large layer to the Midnight Muse card base. 
 
After attaching the other two Very Vanilla layers to their Midnight Muse mats, I attached them to each other.  I then wrapped a piece of Natural 7/16" Trim (p. 173) around the two layers, attaching the trim ends to the back.  I then tied a piece of Linen Thread (p. 173) to a Naturals Designer Button (p. 169), and then attached it to the ribbon with Glue Dots (p. 174).  Lastly, I attached the whole thing to the center of the large layer on the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 175) 
 
 
Stamps:  The Open Sea and Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink:  Midnight Muse, Soft Suede, and Baked Brown Sugar Classic pads

Paper:  Midnight Muse and Very Vanilla card stock

Accessories:  Big Shot, Square Lattice embossing folder, Natural 7/16" Trim, Naturals Designer Buttons, Linen Thread, Stampin' Dimensionals, and Glue Dots

Clockworks Father's Day Card

This is the card that I made my husband for Father's Day.  I really like this stamp set!  It's called Clockworks (p. 109).  The greeting came from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set (p. 44).
 
I stamped the clock onto a scrap of Naturals Ivory card stock with Early Espresso ink.  I colored it in with a Soft Suede marker, and cut it out freehand with Paper Snips (p. 177).  I then stamped the clock-face numbers onto a scrap piece of Naturals Ivory card stock with Midnight Muse ink, and then stamped the clock hands onto the center of the clock face with Early Espresso ink.  I punched the clock face out with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch (p. 182), and attached it to the center of the clock.  I then covered the clock face with a thin layer of Crystal Effects (p. 174), and set it aside to dry.  It's hard to tell in the picture, but this makes the clock face shine like a real clock glass cover would.  I then stamped the medium-sized gear from the Clockworks set onto a piece of Naturals Ivory card stock with Midnight Muse ink.  I then stamped it again with Early Espresso ink, and again with Baked Brown Sugar ink.  I then cut the three gears out freehand with Paper Snips.  Set these aside until later.
 
I colored in the images of the Natural Composition Specialty DSP (p. 150) with a Midnight Muse marker, and attached it to the bottom of a piece of Naturals Ivory card stock, leaving a little border around the bottom and sides.  I die-cut one of the long sides of a strip of Midnight Muse card stock with the Large Scallop Edgelits die (p. 188).  I attached it to the bottom and back of a piece of Venetian Romance DSP (p. 153), and then attached it all above the Natural Composition paper.  I then embossed a piece of Naturals Ivory card stock with the Houndstooth embossing folder (p. 191), and sponged Soft Suede ink across the embossed design.  I then attached it above the DSP strips.  I then wrapped a piece of Midnight Muse 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon (p. 173) around the top of the DSP, attaching the ribbon ends to the back with SNAIL adhesive.  I then attached it all to the Midnight Muse card base.
 
I punched out a circle from Naturals Ivory card stock with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch (p. 182), and stamped it with the argyle background stamp from the Clockworks set with Baked Brown Sugar ink.  I stamped the greeting onto a strip of Naturals Ivory card stock in Midnight Muse ink.  I punched one of the ends with the corner of the 1" Square Punch (p. 180) to make it a banner.  I sponged the edges of the banner with Baked Brown Sugar ink, and attached the straight end onto the back of the argyle circle.
 
I then punched out a scallop circle from Midnight Muse card stock with the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch (p. 182).  I put a post-it note strip onto the scallop circle to make a handle to hold onto, and punched the piece with the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch again, putting the points between the scallops of the punch into the middle of the scallops in the card stock.  I embossed it with the Square Lattice embossing folder (p. 191).  I then attached the argyle circle with the greeting banner to the center it.  I then attached it to the right side of the card, making sure the banner is along the top of the ribbon.
 
Once the Crystal Effects was dry on the clock, I attached a brad from the Vintage Trinkets pack (p. 170) to the center of the clock hands.  I attached the clock to the right side of the circle with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 175).  I attached Vintage Trinket brads to the center of the three clock gears, and attached them around the clock as pictured with Stampin' Dimensionals, too.

My June CPC Project and Free Subscription Give-Away

I'm happy to share with you the project that I made for Craft Project Central this month.  I had so much fun making this Mosaic Flip Flop Album.  I really like how it turned out, and I hope you do, too.
 
This is such a fun album to make!  There are eight 6” x 6” pages in this album, along with eight half page flaps.  Everyone will love how the pages “flip flop” when looking through it.  The album features the new Mosaic Madness stamp set and the new Quatrefancy Specialty designer series paper.  This project would make a very fun scrapbooking class, too.
