Faux Neon Friday-Eastern Palace and Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Hi everyone!

Welcome back to a Faux Neon Friday. I am sorry that I have been absent, but trying to prepare for a new catalog and deal with the end of the month at work as kept me really busy!

I have 2 cards for you today using product from the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. If you are a VIP customer, you should have received yours by now. If you would like a copy, click here.  

I have a super simple card for you today and then one that's a little more involved. I really love how they both turned out even if they didn't go exactly as planned!

For the first card, I paired the Eastern Medallions Thinlits with the Happy Birthday, Gorgeous stamp set to create a really fun medallion. 

My card base is Basic Black. Since I was making 2 cards for you today, I used one piece of card stock to create 2 card bases that measure 4 1/4 x 11. Before cutting, I scored the card stock at 5 1/2. I find it easier to do my scoring first! I stamped the sentiment and then used the medallion thinlit to make the frame.

 You will need a circle die to cut out the medallion. The medallion die only cuts the pattern. It does not cut around itself. I made a boo boo while cutting mine out and that's why I ended up cutting the surrounding edge off. You'll see what I mean in the video.


The strips of card stock are cut at 1/2 x 4 1/4. They were meant to be straight, but if you know me, you know that I am crooked as heck and nothing is ever really straight with me! I really love how simple, but graphic this card is!  I love it and I hope you do as well.

For the next card, I knew that I wanted a black flower with the colors peeking out from behind. I started by using washi tape to adhere the outer die and the inner die together so I could cut 5 of these flowers. Once the flowers were cut, I used the outer die to cut the 5 pieces of colored card stock.
The first plan for this card was to have it be a top folding card. I really like it turned on the side!  After gluing the black flower to the colored background, I used the 1/2" circle punch to punch out coordinating centers. I glued everything together with liquid glue and added the flowers to the card base with snail.

I stamped the hello sentiment and circle onto a piece of Whisper White and used the  1 3/8" circle punch to punch it out and I added it to the card with dimensionals. The final touch was to add the Clear Faceted Gems.   They are simply stunning and the photos do not do them any justice!
