Happy July! Today’s card will get you thinking of fireworks and the Fourth of July with its brightly colored sunshine rays and sparkly sequins. It’s another card made from a background I made awhile back and put into my stash. I wish I could say that my “stash” pile has become real small at this point, but it seems the more I use, the more I make. 😉

Split-Card Design inspired by Jennifer McGuire 2019
Today my card has been inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s YouTube video post on May 10, 2019. It is called a “split card design” because the top and bottom of the front of the card are only connected by the elements between them. The middle of the card has a hole in it, so to speak. Check it out in the pictures below.
My youngest daughter recently moved to Virginia with her husband, so this card was made with her in mind. The card has a number of imperfections, as it takes a bit of planning ahead of time, but my daughter will see only the LOVE that was put into it. 😉
Supplies: Lawn Fawn Simple Grassy Hillsides, Honey Bee Stamps Special Delivery, Lawn Fawn Upon A Star, Concord & 9th Retro Petals Turnabout Stamp Set, Lawn Fawn Little Picket Fence Border, Lawn Fawn Plane and Simple, Honey Bee Stamps Cloud Borders, Vellum, Gina K Designs Amalgam ink, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #80, #110 card stock, Copic markers: B00, RVo2, N2, N3, E00, E13, E15, E23, E31, R24, C5.
How I made it: Please see Jennifer McGuire’s YouTube video on how to put together a “split card” design. She does a wonderful job of teaching how to do it. 🙂 I have a link to the video at the beginning of my blog post.
Hi there and welcome back to Treasures in Letters! Today’s card is another that I am entering in Virginia Lu’s Show & Share (May 2019). She was my mentor in the Altenew Educator Certificate Program and she continues to be a wonderful encourager and inspiration to me. 🙂
As you will notice, I have used the same stamp set as my earlier blog post only this time, I used various different colors rather than different shades of the same color. I hope you like it.
Supplies: Concord & 9th Wreath Turnabout Stamp Set, Altenew Pinstripe Stamp, Altenew inks: Warm Sunshine, Pink Pearl, Just Green, Rocky Shore, Permanent Black, Altenew Pure White Embossing Powder, Black card stock, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #110 card stock, Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Stamp, Copic Multilier .3, Gina K Designs Theresa Momber Vertical Greetings and Things, Recollections Adhesive Pearls, Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen, Versamark ink.
How I made it: I followed Concord & 9th procedures for turnabout stamps and chose a different color for each turn of the stamp (see colors above). I then outlined all the larger images with a black copic multiliner pen. I then went around and highlighted the leaf images with a white gel pen. I white heat embossed my sentiment with Altenew’s Pure White embossing powder and mounted it on a piece of card stock that I had previously stamped with Altenew’s pinstripe stamp. I stamped a small coordinating sentiment on the bottom of my card and embellished the card with adhesive pearls and thin strips of (scrap) black card stock.
Good morning and Happy Memorial Day Weekend to you all!!
Today’s card features Concord & 9th’s Wreath Turnabout Stamp and Altenew’s Garden Treasure Stamp Set. I’ve entered this card in Virginia Lu’s Show & Share May 2019; I hope you like it.
It is so easy to create using a turnabout stamp. Take a look.
Supplies: Concord & 9th Wreath Turnabout Stamp, Altenew inks: Minty Mint, Sweet Leaf, Just Green, Hunter Green, and their new Obsidian Pigment Ink (just gorgeous), Altenew Crystal Clear Embossing Powder, Altenew Pure White Embossing Powder, Altenew Garden Treasure Stamp & Die Set, Copic Multiliner .3, Black card stock, craft foam, Fiskar’s scoring tool and pad, Recollections Adhesive Rhinestones, Versamark ink, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #110 card stock.
How I made it: Following Concord & 9th’s turnabout stamp instructions, I stamped my wreath image using the 4 different Altenew inks (shades of green). Though it is imperceptible from the photos, on the large inner leaves and some of the outer leaves, I used a Fiskar’s scoring tool and traced around the leaves in order to add some depth to the stamped image. This is visible when you see the card in person. I also used a Copic black Multiliner to trace around the larger leaves (see photos). Using Altenew’s Obsidian pigment ink and the small flower from their Garden Treasure Stamp set, I stamped the flowers on vellum and heat embossed using Altenew’s Crystal Clear embossing powder. I popped the flowers up using some clear double-sided tape. My sentiment was stamped on black card stock using Versamark ink and Altenew’s Pure White embossing powder. My card front was framed with black card stock and then mounted on my card base 4.25 x 4.25 Neenah Solar White #110 card stock. I embellished the card using Recollections Adhesive Rhinestones.
How to make it: Take a piece of Neenah Solar White, Classic Crest #80 cardstock and stamp, in black ink, the Altenew Pinstripe Stamp. On another piece of #80 white cardstock trace a circle in the center of the card. Use the outline to stamp flowers around. Use masking paper in places where you want to stamp close to/over a flower next to it. Stamp some leaf branches, using making paper as needed. Using the nesting circle dies, cut out the circle (you traced) leaving the flowers to look as though they are a wreath. Trim card down to 4″x5.25″. Using the card front, position Love & Hugs stamp in center of a 4.25″x5.5″ (Neenah Solar White, Classic Crest #110) card base; stamp in Versafine Onyx black ink and heat emboss with Altenew crystal clear embossing powder. Cut 2 half-inch strips off the pinstripe card you stamped. (Save the remainder of the card for another project.) Place 1 strip of the pinstripe on each side of the card base (made of #110 Neenah Solar White cardstock) then adhere the card front onto card base.
