Rainbow Birthday Card

Hello friends & welcome to So Suzy Stamps inspiration post...
I have made a rainbow birthday card for today's post & I have also made a step-by-step tutorial for this card.
I started out with die cutting the numbers from a white cardstock 
Next I inked the card front with various shades of rainbow around the edges
Now I adhered the die cut cardstock on the inked background.
I used the Mini MISTI to position Number of Years stamp & stamped it with black archival ink on the card front. I used die cuts for Happy & Birthday. I inked a piece of white cardstock with same inks as the background & die cut it with the happy die & I used black cardstock to die cut the Birthday. I adhered them on the card front to finish the card.
Hope you like my card for today...
Thank you for visiting :)

Envelope Punch Board Gift Box Tutorial

Hello friends,
I am sharing a tutorial for a gift box today made using Envelope Punch Board.


We need 2 pieces of 7" x 7" cardstock. Align all 4 sides of the cardsock at 3 1/2" mark, punch & score. Repeat this with both the pieces.

Now score all 4 sides of both the pieces at 3/8".

Cut off the corner squares as shown ( I later cut the corners in a straight line so the edges were 45 degrees to the score line). 
For the top portion of the box cut off both flaps from one of the sides as shown. This will be the opening of the box.

Apply tacky tape on the flaps of the bottom piece leaving 2 flaps on one of the triangle pieces. This will be the opening of the box.

Carefully align and adhere the top & bottom pieces. The picture below shows how it will look like after the box is assembled.
Make a hole in the top & bottom opening pieces & thread the ribbon through & tie a bow to close the box. Decorate the box with pattern papers & embellishments of your choice.
Here are few more pix of the decorated gift box... Side view
& top view...
Hope you like it...

Just For You

Hello Friends...
Welcome to Inspired by Stamping inspiration post…
Today I am sharing a CAS card with you all made with one of my favorite stamp sets ... Magnolias & I have paired it with Just For You stamp set...
I started out with drawing 3 horizontal pencil guide lines to stamp my sentiment & then I stamped the Just for you sentiment with black archival ink...
Then I used Memento Paris Dusk ink to stamp the Magnolias around the sentiment & colored them with blue alcohol markers,,,
Next I lightly inked my card base edges with Mowed Lawn & Mermaid Lagoon distress ink & adhered my main panel on top.
Here is a close-up of the colored flowers...
I hope you like it... Thank you for visiting today...  :)

So Suzy & The Ton Blog Hop - Day 2

Hello friends & welcome to So Suzy & The Ton Blog Hop - Day 2

I hope you enjoyed the blog hop yesterday & left some love for the participating blogs... 
if not then you have few more days to do so & get a chance to win some awesome prizes...
Stay tuned till the end for the Blog Hop GIVEAWAY

I have a card & tutorial today made with Fresh Cut DahliasGeometric Lattice Coverplate Die & Sweet Things stamp set.
I started with die cutting my frame as demonstrated in the pictures below.

Then I inked it with Mowed Lawn Distress ink.
I used the Geometric Lattice Coverplate die to emboss the backgroud using my embossing mat & Ebosser. Embossing cardstock with the die gives a different look than using the die to cut... This is a fun way to get more out of your dies...
I adhered this embossed panel on my card base & then adhered the green frame with foam adhesive on top.
Next I stamped the flowers from Fresh Cut Dahlias, stamp set with pink, blue & yellow inks, fussy cut them & adhered them on my card front. I used foam adhesive to add dimension to the flower arrangement.
For the sentiment I used Sweet Things stamp & stamped it on a piece of white cardstock. I used Mini MISTI to position the stamp correctly on my cardstock piece. Then I cut it out with a die & adhered it on the card front so that it is slightly curved.

The last step was to add half pearls on the four corners.
Here are some of the close-ups that show how adding foam adhesive adds more depth to the flower arrangement...

Hope you like my card for today...
