Wacky Wednesday – Happy S’Mores Day Card

Hello everyone~

Today my Facebook friends got to vote on what card to highlight for Wacky Wednesday.  They got to choose between two holidays – National Duran Duran Day or National S’Mores Day.  You guessed it – they picked s’mores.

I had a totally different idea when I went into my stamping area, but luckily, inspiration came quickly and brought some fire (yes, pun intended) into the design.

I used only three punches for this card and both the Foxy Friends and Fresh Fruit stamp sets (the phrase is from the Fresh Fruit stamp set).

I sponged the bottom of the main image and the marshmallow with Soft Suede.  The stick is our new classic label punch, punched only a one-third width.  The logs are the same label punch, and the flames are the tail of the Foxy Friend punch.  The marshmallow is the 1/2″ circle punch.

Of course, I used a marker to adjust the saying.  I’ll practice that a bit more the next time.

That little raccoon is just the sweetest little thing, don’t ya think?

Perfect Couple Word Bubbles Framelit Masking Technique

My Technique Tuesday classes are always quick and fun nights out for my stampers.  I love the teaching aspect and hearing the oohs and aahs from my customers.

At a recent Technique Tuesday, I taught the framelit masking technique.  They loved it!  I’ll share the technique details later in this post, but here is the finished card:

Perfect Couple Word Bubble Framelit Masking

First off, may I please mention – PROTECT YOUR WORKSPACE.  I have leftover spritz spray all over my countertop.  It will eventually come off, but I did want to forewarn you.

You will need the magnetic plate for the Big Shot.  You will also need a 9″ x 6″ large piece of scrap paper to PROTECT YOUR MAGNETIC PLATE!  For this card, I used the Word Bubble Framelits, but I could have also used the heart, circle, flower, or many other framelit pieces.

Here are the other supplies –

  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Dye Reinkers
  • Stampin’ Up! Spritzer
  • Neutral Card Stock
  • Baby Wipes

Fill the spritzer 2/3 full with rubbing alcohol.  Add several drops (I used 12 drops of Real Red) of refill for the desired hue.

Layer the Magnetic Big Shot Plate with scrap paper.

Place your neutral card stock (I used Naturals Ivory) on the scrap paper.  Layer the framelits in the desired design.

Spritz the spray over the framelits.  It is ok to leave less sprayed areas.

Make sure to rub off all ink with baby wipes – and then dry them.

I know you can use all of our neutral card stock, but I liked the way the spritz soaked in to our Naturals card stock.

This card would be perfect for an anniversary card or a Sweetest Day/Valentine’s Day card.
