Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Motorcycle Cards

Hello friends!  I am back with another blog post for the Trendy Twine blog.  Our featured twine for the month is Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.  I decided to do something very different from the love theme that is generally present this month and made some masculine cards.
My first card uses our featured Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine wrapped around the background papers.  I stamped a motorcycle from Raisin Boat's Highway High stamp set in black then heat embossed it with clear powder for shine.  The sentiment was from the same set and was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with white powder.
I die cut around it with oval dies then popped that panel up with foam tape over the Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.  Two square sequins from the Christmas Shaker Medley were attached in the top right corner using Glue Dots.
After making the red card, I had to make one with orange!  I love how the orange really pops against the black and grays. It was made in the same way as the red card except I used enamel dots to embellish instead of sequins.
Here you can see the shine of the embossing on the motorcycle.

Soda Birthday Cards

Good Morning!  Today is my day to post on the SumMore Fun blog.  The cards I am sharing with you use the SumMore Fun Soda-Lighted stamp set.  I love that set and it is a hit with my boys too!
I decided to make several of these cards, stamping them on patterned paper that is reminiscent of different kinds of pop.  First up, the "Mountain Dew" can.  I stamped the can image with the word soda in it using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.  I then used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut it out, then made a shadow layer to matte it on also with my Scan N Cut.  The patterned papers I used for this card are from DCWV's Fiesta Forever stack.  I added highlights to the can using white gel pen.
The other cards I made use patterned papers from MME Alphabet Soup-Boy paper pad.  This one is reminiscent of Orange Fanta.  The pop can is popped up with foam tape onto the white panel with the sentiment from the Fun Soda-Lighted stamp set.  That panel was die cut using a GMD wonky stitched rectangle die.  I also stamped bubbles on the background paper from that stamp set for a little extra fun.  I added sequins to the cards with Glue Dots.
Here is a look at the 4 different styles of cards that I made using the Fun Soda-Lighted stamp set.  Fun, right?!  Using my stamp platform made making multiples so quick!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Hot Air Balloon Valentines

Happy Valentine's Day!  This year I went away from the traditional Valentines because I just wasn't feeling that.  I wanted something different to send to family, and this card fit the bill!
I used background paper from The Paper Studio's Best Day Ever paper pad.  I loved the bright colors and the hearts on some of the balloons!  The stamps are from Stampin Up! Time To Celebrate set.  I stamped the image in blue and the sentiment in black.  That panel was die cut with a GMD stitched rectangle die and matted with a GMD scalloped stitched rectangle die cut.  I die cut hearts to embellish with from the GMD Heart Confetti Die.  Adhesives used include ATG, foam tape and tacky glue.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
