You Rock – Black Glitter Cardstock

Summertime is concert season. It’s a great time to see your favorite music artists in action. If you are a music fan this project is for you. We created this super fun birthday card for a friend who is a big fan of live music and are pairing the card with an invite to a local concert. This gift should make for a memorable birthday.

This card features our black glitter paper. Black might not be your first choice when you think about glitter but it happens to be the perfect choice for this mixed tape music cassette. Look how it sparkles and adds that little needed texture to this card. The mixed tape cassette die, you rock letters and coordinating stamp set are products available from Concord & 9th. A full list of card supplies can be found below. You can find a full list of our Glitter cardstock colors here.

Supplies:

It’s your DAY TO SHINE! – coloring and stamping on glitter card stock

Happy Monday! Let’s start off the week with a happy and life affirming message, ‘It’s Your Day to Shine’!

This fun card makes our white glitter card stock shine! Have you tried coloring on glitter card stock? It’s easy to do if you take a careful and light touch approach. Since our glitter card stock does not shed, the glitter stays put.

For this card we used a stamp set and dies from Concord & 9th. The lightbulb was stamped in an archival black ink on our glitter card stock. Then we colored the light bulb using various shade of yellow Copic sketch markers. Next we stamped the greeting inside the lightbulb. We used a basic stamp alignment tool (like a Misti) to stamp the greeting multiple times to for better ink coverage and to get that deep black ink look. The image was then cut using the coordinating lightbulb die and a Big Shot manual die cutter. The card came together quickly from there.

Card supplies:

  • White glitter card stock (non-shed)– ETC Papers
  • Silver metallic card stock
  • Yellow and white card stock – ARC Papers
  • Stamp set of choice – we used a retired set from Concord & 9th
  • Alcohol based makers – we used Copic markers
  • Sequins – Studio Calico
  • Washi tape
  • Library card from Studio Calico
  • Archival Ink – We used Ranger Archival Ink

  • Die cut machine – We used a Big Shot

Pretty Peacock cards with Heartfelt Creations

The sentiments are these cards are genuine and heartfelt. We hope you are having a wonderful day.

A few weeks ago we shared a beautiful card using our Cherry Wood paper as the card base. Today we have a couple more cards using our Real Wood Papers. These cards use our Birch Wood Papers and Birch Wood Tape.

We used a few more favorite products from Heartfelt Creations to create these two cards. Heartfelt Creations has a couple lovely cling stamp sets featuring peacocks. You can find information about those here.

We used our Real Birch Wood tape to line the bottom of the peacock card, shown below. We added a line of Prills to create a finished divider between the tape and the card stock and love the results.

Our Real Wood Sheets come in three sizes; 12 x 12, 8.5 x 11, and 6 x 12. These papers come in four finishes; Birch, Cherry, Rustic Birch and Rustic Cherry.

We love our MOM’s – Great gift and card ideas

AWESOME Cherry Wood Graduation Card

Handmade cards do not have to be super complicated or embellished. Today we are sharing a graphic and simple card featuring our Real Cherry Wood paper.

Our Real Wood papers have an adhesive backing making it easy to adhere to any surface. We cut the Cherry Wood paper with the AWESOME die from Studio Calico using a Big Shot. Once cut, we removed the adhesive liner from the backside of the Cherry Wood paper and adhered the design to a card front. We will pair this card with our A2 Real Cherry Wood Envelopes.

We have a few high school graduations to attend and need to make multiple cards. This is a simple card design to make multiples of and it is sure to make an impression with our awesome graduates.

Are you familiar with Heartfelt Creations? We love how elegant and elaborate the stamps that Heartfelt Creations produce. They are truly gorgeous products.

We colored and then embellished with handmade paper flowers, glitter and Prills.
