Hello, Happy Birthday

This card was created during Day 13 of the Online Card Class Spring Card Camp.


I used the Hello die cut from the previous card where it was cut from the card front. In the class, the presenter had a shadow die for her statement. I do not have a shadow die for the Lawn Fawn die I used, so I cut my own with scissors. I added another greeting from the Paper Smooches Happy Hellos stamp set. I thought this paper would be a pretty birthday card. The patterned is from an Echo Park paper pack. This was fun to create and it looks like a happy card.

Sparkly Hello

Another day of Online Card Class with a bit of sparkle being front and center for the lesson.


The sparkle was created with glitter gel by Faber Castelle. My jar was fairly dried, so I added a little bit of water to try to revive it. I was able to get enough sparkle on my palette knife to spread enough to get the sparkly effect. I ink blended the background with a few distress inks. I used the Lawn Fawn Scripty Hello die. The gems are from Hobby Lobby. I am using a lot of items from my stash. I ran out of my favorite foam adhesives, so out came the Hobby Lobby that is a bit thicker. This will definitely cost more to mail as it will not fit through the slot on my mailing guide. Several years ago the USPS gave my husband a plastic guide with a slot for your letter to fall through. If the letter or card can go through the slot with no help, a single stamp will work, otherwise, extra postage is needed. I use this tool every time I mail anything. I remember these pieces of foam a bit thick for the card to fly through unassisted.

I am entering this in the Paper Players Challenge due to the sparkle in the hello.

Rainbow Hello

The following card is full of sparkle, clouds, a rainbow, and is using older product.


I used two older stamp sets in this card: Gina K Designs Happy Mail (2017) and SU High Tide (2017). The clouds were cut with a Lawn Fawn die, Cloudy Hillside Pop-up. The rainbow was made with Spellbinders Large Circle dies. I added sparkle to the rainbow with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen. This was created with the lesson from Online Card Class Spring Card Camp Day 11. This is one of my favorite lessons, as I had the supplies and could sit down and create. All of the paper used is Hobby Lobby heavy weight cardstock, except for the violet. I think the violet is The Stamps of Life cardstock.

Always enjoyable when a card comes together and fits to many challenges.

Coordinating Die

Day 4 of the OCC Spring Card Camp is all about using a coordinating die to create a window, then use the die cut to create another card.

Card with Window
Window card Masked Inside

I used the Hero Arts Hummingbird stamp set with the matching dies. I made my mask using the die. I should have trimmed the mask a bit so there wouldn’t have been a small gap between the hummingbird beak and the flower, but I decided to leave well enough alone. All images were colored with SU pencils and a blender pen. Now for the second card using the die that was cut from the window.

Card using Die Cut

I added the score lines to the front for interest, like in the class. Both cards were added to the Mod Squad birds Challenge, from Split Coast Stampers.

Faux Embossing Folder

I am taking Online Card Classes, Spring Camp 2020. Day One was all about creating a Faux Embossing Folder. Here are two card created with this technique.

Day 1 Hello
Day 1 Hugs

My faux embossing folder was created with the background stamp, Flourish, by My Favorite Things. I added Scripty Lawn Fawn die cuts to each card. This was a different way of creating an embossed image, but I will probably stick to my regular embossing folders as I have many to choose from.
