Calypso Coral Flower Shop Thank You

As much as I love Framelits, there is something classic about stamps with matching punches that make life easy. This card came together quickly with Flower Shop and the matching Pansy Punch. I used the Thank You sentiment from the Rose Wonder stamp set.

Calypso Coral Thank You by Yapha

Stamps: Flower Shop, Rose Wonder
Ink: Archival Basic Black
Paper: Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Gold Glimmer Paper
Other: Pansy Punch, 1/2″ Circle Punch, Gold Wink of Stella, Gold Glimmer Tape

I don’t know if you can see it in the picture, but I ran the Gold Wink of Stella brush around the edge of the Whisper White cardstock. It makes a very subtle border. I used the theme of Flowers from this week’s Stamp Ink Paper challenge and the colors from the ColourQ challenge.

Butterfly Pizza Box Card Set for Craft Project Central

This card box set has a mini “pizza” box to hold the cards in, and the box is decorated with a pretty butterfly belly band. The box holds a total of six, 4” x 4” cards and coordinating envelopes. This tutorial includes the instructions on how to make the mini “pizza” box, three different card designs (two are made of each), and the envelopes for the 4” x 4” cards. The set features the Garden in Bloom Stamp Set and English Garden Designer Series Paper. This would make a great card class, too.

You Are Tea-riffic!

As the school year winds down, things are getting more hectic than ever! Sorry that I’m skipping some days with posts, I’ll try my best to make it up over the summer. Here’s a fun card for today.

Tea-riffic by Yapha

Stamps: A Nice Cuppa
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Crushed Curry
Paper: Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper
Other: Pool Party Glitter Ribbon, Circle Card Thinlits (banner)

I thought the white background on the teapot paper was too stark, so I brayered over it with Pool Party ink. I really like the way it turned it out! I used this week’s colors from Pals Paper Arts, the sketch from As You See It, and the “punny” theme from Cupcake Inspirations.

Congrats Grad!

Graduation season is full swing upon us! I walked the new puppy past our neighbor’s graduation party tonight and on Monday I read one last story to the graduating seniors who I had taught in Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. I used the retired Blue Ribbon stamp set for this fun graduation card. Doesn’t it remind you of graduates throwing their caps in the air? (This and other retired stamps are for sale here.)

Congrats Grad by Yapha

Stamps: Blue Ribbon (retired)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Pool Party, Chocolate Chip, Sweet L’il Thing Designer Series Paper
Other: Calypso Coral Seam Binding

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, the colors from Stamp Ink Paper, and the graduation theme from Stampin’ Royalty.

Yellow Rose for Mom’s Birthday

My mom’s favorite color is yellow and her favorite flower is the yellow rose, so I was super excited to use the Rose Wonder Bundle to make her birthday card! I used the retired Black Glimmer Paper for the outline to give it a little extra bling.

Yellow Rose by Yapha

Stamps: Rose Wonder
Ink: Garden Green
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Whisper White, Black Glimmer Paper
Other: Rose Garden Thinlits

This week’s challenge over at What Will You Stamp is to use the Rose Wonder Stamp Set. While both the stamp set and the thinlits will be in the new catalog, they will not have the bundle option. So if you want to save 15%, I recommend buying this before May 31st!

Card Candy Flip Book for Craft Project Central

Create a flip book, complete with elements that flip and open, with card candy that the recipient can remove and use to decorate note and greeting cards.  One of the “flip” elements is a glassine bag that holds twine and jewels to further decorate the cards.  The flip book includes a pocket to hold an instructional note for the recipient, and there’s another pocket to hold additional embellishments, punched or die-cut shapes, stamped sentiments, etc.  This tutorial includes eight assorted card candy decorative layers, including the one on the front of the flip book, which can be lifted from the book and adhered to a card.  This is a fabulous project to make for another stamper/card-maker, and it would also be a great stamp camp project.
