Father's Day Cards in Cream and Blue

Tim Holtz Vintage Truck Card

Now that Father’s Day has passed, I can share some of the cards I made to celebrate. The first card is a combination birthday and Father’s Day card for my FIL.  For this one I used papers by Basic Grey and Cut and  vintage truck and sentiment stamps by Tim Holtz.

Vintage Truck Card Materials
Made a 5x7 card from cream cardstock, ran some light blue cardstock through my Cuttlebug using a Tim Holtz embossing folder, stamped the truck with blue pigment ink and the sentiment with black. I kinda goofed on the first stamp of the sentiment, so went back over it and was actually pleased with the shadow effect. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it anyway.

Take Some Time 2

For these cards, I used some pre-made cards  and embellisments from the David Tutera cardmaking collection along with another sheet from a Basic Grey pack.  The clocks are rub-ons I had in my stash but you could get the same effect with a clear sticker or stamp. I only had one of the “take some time” sentiment rub-ons but liked the sentiment so generated the second one using my label maker and then spruced it up with some embellishments.

Take Some Time Card
The turquoise strip is a pre-cut David Tutera overlay that I trimmed to size. Finished with some coordinating washi tape.

Hope all the dads in your lives had a great Father’s Day!

Silver and Navy Sympathy Card

Navy and Silver Sympathy Card

I feel like I’ve had to make too many Sympathy cards lately. Not loving that. But I did need to make one more so here ‘tis and sharing how I did it. 

I decided on my card color combo in a backwards kind of way.  I received a bunch of supplies for a sponsored campaign last year (David Tutera Celebrate) which included some decorative phrase stickers like the one I chose as the focal for my card . Then I went to my scrapbook paper and picked a coordinating blue and white paper  (DCWV Tradewinds Stack) to use. Picked a couple more pre-cut pieces from my Celebrate stash. Supplies used:
  • 5x7 silver card
  • Pre-embossed grey panel
  • Pre-embossed silver panel
  • Smpathy focal sticker
  • White Border
  • Decorative paper
Navy and Silver Card Materials

I cut the printed paper to 4.5x5.5, the embossed silver panel to 3x5 and the white border to 5 inches and layered them as shown:

Then I mounted the Sympathy focal to a piece of the grey embossed paper, layered onto a scrap of the patterned paper and layered once more on grey paper. Wrapped black and white baker’s twine around this before adding to the card using foam dots.

Finished off by adding a couple of fabric flowers ( Prima) .

I know a card won’t make up for the loss but hope that the receiver feels the love put into it.

Everyone's A Card Maker With David Tutera Celebrate

David Tutera Celebrate Birthday

You might remember a few weeks ago when I posted a video about the new David Tutera Celebrate line that’s available (exclusively)  at Jo Ann’s? I’m so excited to post today about what I made with products from this fun new line of cardmaking and paper products.

This line is perfect for the novice or seasoned cardmaker. It requires no tools beyond adhesive and your imagination and takes no time at all to whip up a card that looks like it took hours and cost a fortune.

David Tutera Haul

The Celebrate line is literally as easy as 1, 2, 3 which is how each of the components are labeled.

1.) The Card. Cards come in 4 x 5.5 or 5x7 and come in everything from plain white to metallic to natural and several colors.
2.) Layers sized to match you card. These are wonderful for those who may not have a fancy die cutting or embossing machine because the work is already done for you.
3.) Accents. These include borders, tags, layered sentiment stickers, rhinestones and smaller diecuts.

Tutera 1 2 3

For the birthday card above I used a metallic silver 5x7 card  (Step 1), a grey layer with scrolled edges and a center cutout, along with a white embossed layer underneath ( Step 2) , some borders, birthday sentiment, and small diecuts ( Step 3).  1.2.3.

Tutera Celebrate Layer Sanding

One of the things included in my package was this sanding block . His line uses papers by Core’dinations, one of my favorite papers to use in cards and other projects. When you sand the papers you reveal some of the color underneath and it completely changes the texture and appearance of your piece.

Tutera Celebrate Sanded Layer

I love the shabbied up look after sanding and my supplies also  included a wonderful rag that wipes up all of the dust without affecting the paper.

I cut two of the  borders the width of the grey layer and adhered with a glue dots runner.

Tutera Layer with Border

The borders are already textured for you so you there’s no dry embossing required.

Tutera Birthday Stickers

I chose one of the layered birthday sentiment stickers, and placed it in the window of the grey layer and then finished off with a coordinating layered flower:

This card took me 10 minutes or less to make. Seriously. I think you’ll take longer deciding which combination of card, layers, and embellishments to use than to actually make the card. It’s so easy.

David Tutera Celebrate Thanks

I had so much fun with it, I whipped up a Thank You card as well.

David Tutera Thanks

Again, 1. Card 2. Layers 3. Embellishments.
