    Creative Therapy

    Card Classes

    I am excited to offer this fun "Happy" card at my October Creative Therapy classes.  
    This card is not hard at all.   Cut out the happy with the dies, and sponge the card to make your own clouds.

    • The base is an 11 x 4 1/4 piece of Poppy Parade scored at 5 1/2.

    • The Thick Whisper White is 5 x 3 3/4, and the happy is cut out 1 1/4" from the bottom.
    • I used an oversized post-it note, one of the Happy Dies, and cut out a template to make clouds, using a sponge and Balmy Blue ink.
    • The larger balloon and the "so very" is stamped with Granny Apple Green, and the smaller balloon, and second set of words is stamped with Poppy Parade.  Both are cut out with the Happy Dies.
    • I used the Foam Adhesive Strips to pop up the entire white card front.  Made it so easy.

        Ridiculously Awesome
        This card focuses on the stamp set, Ridiculously Awesome, and the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks.  My sweet friend, Wendie, created this card, and I think this color combination is very pretty.
        This is a similar technique I used to make the cards on my post of 8/21/2020.

        Recipe: (building from base)
        • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Balmy Blue, scored at 4 1/4.
        • The Basic Gray layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
        • The Whisper White layer is 5 x 3 3/4.
        • Wendie laid one of the Basic Pattern masks on the cardstock, and sponged the cardstock with Balmy Blue.  Beautiful effect. 
        • The Stitched So Sweetly Dies are used to cut out the Basic Gray and the Whisper White pieces on which the words are stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black ink.
        • These two pieces are popped up with dimensionals.
        • The three beautiful gems are from the Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems pack. (page 37 of the 2020 Holiday mini).
        • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.

            Tasteful Touches & Peaceful Moments
            Flowers on most any card are beautiful, and can be used for almost any occasion.  I used a word stamp from Peaceful Moments, and it is a great set to have on hand, (10 all-occasion words).
            A version of this card can be found on Page 19 of the 2020-21 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  Lots of ideas in their catalog, just sayin'.😊
            Recipe:
            • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Crumb Cake, scored at 4 1/4.
            • The next Merry Merlot layer is 5 1/4 x 4. 
            • The Petal Pink is 4 x 2 3/4, and is stamped with Petal Pink ink and a stamp from Tasteful Touches.
            • The next Merry Merlot layer is 2 1/2 x 1 3/4  and is the base for the 2 1/4 x 1 1/2 Whisper White on which the words are stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black ink and a stamp from Peaceful Moments.
            • The branches are cut with the Cut & Emboss Machine, Mossy Meadow & Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the Poppy Moments Dies.  The small Crumb Cake sprigs are punched with the Sprig Punch.
            • The flower is stamped with Merry Merlot ink on Whisper White, and hand cut with my handy-dandy Paper Snips.  Two pearls are added to the center of the flower.
            • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
            • All done!!!
