My first card for today will make you laugh…brrring brrring



I do! lol

I love this sentiment from Printworks and use it anytime I use a telephone!  This adorable telephone image and the floral background stamp are NEW and also from Printworks.  I embossed the telephone and the flowers (multiple times) with white pigment ink and Tsukineko’s Imagine White Embossing Powder.  The sentiment is stamped with black pigment ink and embossed with Tsukineko’s Imagine Black Embossing Powder.  I die cut the sentiment with a die from Lawn Fawn.

I used Printworks stamp pads for watercoloring the white embossed flowers (watercolor paper).  Go back in time…the first CHA type show I went to was in 1995.  Printworks was there teaching Annette’s (the owner and artist) watercolor techniques.  She introduced using stamp pads for watercolor way back then! It’s stood the test of time for sure!

What can I say that I haven’t said a million times about the Perfect Paper Crafting Layering Tools!  They are the BEST!  I Love these tools!  I didn’t think there would be any room for improvement but I love the mini tools and mat more!  I’m glad I have both sets though because today I needed to use the one inch ruler that just comes in the long ruler size.

It’s so nice to get the professional look of even borders along with the charm of a handmade card.  Use Sparks 5% off at checkout to get 5% off your PPC order!  Thank you for clicking through my links.

What did I use from Xyron?  Well, they have this awesome Mega Tape Runner… looks like this…


wow!  It’s great!  It dispenses permanent adhesive dots and is refillable.  So easy to operate too… not too big and not small either!  It just works!  YAY!  I used this to put most of my layers together.

I adhered the telephone panel to the white embossed panel with Xyron ¼ in. High Tack Double Sided Tape…


and the sequins with Xyron High Tack Adhesive Dots…perfect!


My next two cards are wedding cards…



Here I used the Perfect Layers Mini Tools and Mat to cut my card base.  I scored and folded a sheet of 8.5×11 card-stock, then adhered my main panel to the folded card base with the Xyron Mega Tape Runner, then used my mini tool to cut the border on the other three sides.

I used the Xyron Mega Tape Runner to adhere the Studio Calico wood veneer potty people to the circle too!  Yep, they stick great!  I was able to rub away any excess before I stuck them down, so easy because it’s dot adhesive. (looks like the wood veneer potty people have been discontinued)

My inspiration for this card came from Maile Belles’ card HERE.

I partial die cut a circle and then die cut two complete circles for the layers.


Another fun wedding card using a Memory Box border die, Printworks stamps, wood Potty People and a Doodlebug red heart embellishment.

Again I used my Perfect Layers tool to cut the three sides of my card base and the Xyron Mega Tape Runner to adhere the layers and the potty people.

Wonderful tools!  Wonderful adhesives!  Thank you PPC and Xyron!
