Baby Shower Card Using Sign Language Stamps

Baby Shower Card Using Sign Language Stamps is what we have for you today. I needed to create a non gender baby shower card and what better way to do that then use our awesome Sign Language Alphabet Stamps?

Before I begin, I want to apologize if I have not responded to emails you have sent. I just found out that my email has not been working properly for over TWO MONTHS. No not kidding. Fortunately, I did not miss any orders and check my orders regularly but I didn’t realize I wasn’t receiving all of my emails. If you didn’t receive a message back from me, please send me one again. This is embarrassing to say the least… The good news is, I figured it out before it was three months…. yeah.. gotta think half full not half empty…. Now, onto the card…

Supplies for the Baby Shower Card Using Sign Language Stamps Project

A Creative Journey with Melissa Sign Language Alphabet Stamp Set

Acrylic Stamp Block

Card Base

Patterned Paper

Colored Paper to stamp image on

Adhesive

Scissors

Twine

3-D Adhesive

Pennant punch or you can cut them with scissors

Ink

To begin, take out the paper you are going to stamp your sentiments. I used scraps so in doing so, they were a bit small for me to hold on to in order to make sure it is placed in the punch correctly.

This is where I use a post it note as an extender to ensure I can place the paper in the punch in the perfect spot.

Take out your A Creative Journey with Melissa Sign Language Alphabet Stamp Set. Take off the letters you need to spell out the word baby.

 

Place your letter on your acrylic block.

Ink your sign language alphabet letter.

Stamp your letter on your punched out pennant paper. Repeat this for the word and set aside your papers.

Take out your card  base and your patterned paper. Place adhesive on the back of your patterned paper and place on top of your card base as shown above.

Using your twine, make a bow on both ends of the twine. Double check to make sure you have enough room for the sentiment and that it is not too long for the card base.

NOTE:I used the “rabbit ear” typing method as it seems to create a better bow.

On both corners of the decorative paper, place a small amount of adhesive as shown above. I use dotted tape runner adhesive instead of glue dots because the glue dots tend to be more of a 3-D effect and that is not what I am looking for here.

Place your bow on either side of the card base as shown above, ensuring there is enough room for the letters you are placing on the banner.

Trim off any excess twine from your creation.

Place your sentiment on the twine to create the banner look.

Your banner card is complete!

Holiday Stocking Card Using Sign Language Stamps

Holiday Stocking Card Using Sign Language Stamps is what we have for you today. I am always looking for multiple uses for the dies that I have. We invest a lot of money in our crafting tools and I like to think of multiple ways to use them. That is what we are going to do today! Are you ready? Let’s get started!

Here is the creation we are going to make! It is perfect for gift cards for the holidays!

Supplies Needed for the Holiday Stocking Card Using Sign Language Stamps Project

A Creative Journey with Melissa Sign Language Alphabet stamp set

Acrylic Block

Scissors

Black Ink

Paper for Card

Paper for embellishments for stocking

Stocking Die

Glue dot for gift card

Trim for stocking

Adhesive

Here is a close up of the stocking die I used.

Take out your stocking die, paper, platforms and manual die cut machine. Place your paper on top of the die where you need the white pieces cut. Place your die on top of the clear platform and then place the clear platform on top of the die so it is sandwiched between the two clear platforms.

Here are the pieces that the die cut out for me for the Holiday Stocking Card Using Sign Language Stamps Project.

Take your colored 6″ x 12″ piece of paper out.

Fold your colored paper in half.

Be sure the fold line is BELOW the top of the stocking. This is how you will make it a card!

Using the same sandwich as you did for the embellishment pieces for the stocking, run your die with the folded part BELOW the line where the die will cut. Run your die cut through your machine.

You did it! This is how you create the stocking card for your Holiday Stocking Card Using Sign Language Stamps Project!

This is a close up of the die. I placed my fold approximately 1/4 inch below the cut line for the stocking. Above is the picture is an exaggeration of how much space it was. I just wanted to be sure you were clear which line you were to be sure you placed the fold under for your creation.

Take out your ink and the top of your stocking. Peel off the appropriate letters from your A Creative Journey with Melissa sign language stamp set.

Place the first letter on the block.

Ink your stamp

Stamp your letter on the top of the stocking. Repeat to spell out the word you wish to have.

Take out your trim. Place adhesive on the bottom edge of the stocking top. Adhere the trim to the stocking top. Trim off any excess.

Here on the left I put the letters rounded so they followed the trim. On the right I did them straight. Which do you like better?

Place adhesive on the back of the stocking heel and toe pieces. Adhere them to the front of your stocking card.

Take out your stocking top with the trim.

Adhere the stocking top to the front of the stocking card.

You did it! You completed your Holiday Stocking Card Using Sign Language Stamps Project!
