It’s time for a Anthony’s Paper Craft group team members blog post. This months card theme is Birthday and the color purple.
This card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 Started with a heavy card base and used a pretty purple piece card stock over top. I cut a piece of mixed media paper to 5 by 5 and stamped out the cupcake 4 times. The stamp is from Anthony’s Paper Craft – Cupcake 1 colored them in with colored pencils. For the back ground a used a stencil by Echo Park – Royal Crown inked in Ranger Ink. Stamped the Make a Wish sentiment which is also included in the stamp set along with 3 other cupcake designs. Lastly I added a spinner to the middle of the card.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. I made this card to celebrate my mother who passed away years ago and to all the other moms around the world.
This was a quick and simple card to make once I decided on the cards main focus. Anthony’s Paper Craft design team decided Mother’s Day was the card for April. I wanted to do something besides flowers. I decided on one of Anthony’s Faux String Art stamps.
I started with a heavy card base and cut to 5 1/2 by 7. I went through my card stock and found two pretty papers from Tonic Studio – Craft Perfect. I cut both to 5 1/2 by 7.
On the plain lighter paper I used Versamark on the Faux String Art – Large Open Star stamp then used Embossing Power in Black. The top piece I found a circle metal die cut that would frame the star nicely. Then sandwiched the three together.
Then got to decorating: found some small gems to add to the star. Then added the “M’s” In the hopes that it looked like it spelled out MOM.
These are more of Anthony’s Paper Craft Faux String Art stamps.
New stamp from Lost Coast Designs – Cityscape. I knew I wanted to pair it with Tim Holtz -Stampers Anonymous – Theories. This card is 5″by 6″, Heavy weigh cardbase with 2 dark green backgrounds.
First on a glassmat I smeared Ranger Distress Oxide and added a small amount of water. With my card front I pressed down, I repeated with 3 or 4 different inks. After that I went back in with more Distress inks with a dauber. Finally I pulled out some Gold Metallic Gilding Polish and with a Q tip and some specs.
I picked up this Bird Stamp by Lost Coast Designs this weekend. Such a fun stamp. I paired it (again) with sheet music. I stamped with Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black. Then distressed with Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxides.
The background paper is by Stampers Anonymous. I also used watercolors on black and red to make splatters.
Inside the card a passage from Edger Allen Poe’s The Raven.
Another Sizzix & Sheet Music Card. Hope you aren’t getting tired of this combo. I just think its a fun look. This die set from Sizzix is called – The Park. I paired it with some old sheet music – Easter Parade. I used Ranger Inks to give the sheet music some color.
Inside the card I used 2 stamps from Impression Obsession also stamped with Ranger Inks.
For the envelope I used the negative image of my die cut to make a stencil and used my Ranger Inks .
Its time for our March Blog Hop for the Anthony’s Paper Craft desgin team. This month we chose Easter. I can’t believe its just 2 weeks away.
I think I’ve said before when even I’m in a goodwill I search for scrabble games. Normally I can find them for under $2.00. I have hundreds for those tiles and 4 of 5 game boards. I have a good old school paper cutter that cuts through them nicely.
This card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 card. I put a little distress ink around the edges and then stamped my Woven Impresstion by Jaskets – Boundiful Baskets stamps from Anthony’s Paper Crafts. I chosse the basket and eggs. But whats cool about this set is you can change out the eggs for apples or wine. And there are add on’s sets with flowers. https://anthonyspapercraft.com/product-category/stamps/woven-impressions/
I then searched for my tiles and glued them down along with some flower charms.

With people getting vaccines and numbers going down, maybe travel is in our future. I love these vintage looking suitcases, they are part of a set by Anthony’s Paper Craft -On the road again. I first stamped the suitcaces on some map cardstock. Using distress inks I watercolored. I also distressed the edges of the map paper. Found a piece of bus ephemera and one of Tim Holtz paper dolls and attached to front. Quick and easy.
Inside the card are two more stamps from the same set.
I’m ready for spring and Daffodils always remind me spring is right around the corner. This Daffodil stamp is from Anthony’s Paper Craft FL1404 – Daffodils. If you like flower stamps you should check out his website. Anthony just added a ton of new products to his online store.
I pulled out my sheet music again for this card, I know surprise surprise lol. Used Ink to distressed the edges. Stamped the daffodils in Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black then used watercolors to color in.
I had some cute bee charms that I attached. to the sheet music. The paper behind the sheet music is from Craft Perfect – Tonic Studio.
I hope everyone isn’t getting tired of my Sizzix Colorize Die and Sheet Music pairings. I just have fun doing them. Sizzix’ Oliver is a newer die and a cute one at that. This is a 5 1/2 by 7 in card. The pink cardstock came in one of my Tonic Studio’s monthy boxes. They always include such pretty paper. I then found the perfect sheet music “Mr Rabbit” distressed the edges with Ranger Distress Oxide, then stenciled some dots using more distress ink in Worn Lipstick. For Oliver I used around 7 different colors of cardstock.
Sizzix Colorize dies by Tim Holtz are really fun to work with. I won’t lie they are a little tricky to put together but with a little time they really look great.
