Game Tiles Card

Game Tiles

Hi All!

Simon Says Stamp asked me to help them celebrate their new Color of Fun launch, so of course I said yes! I love their stamps… I know you know because I use them a lot. You can see the entire collection HERE.

When I saw the Game Tile Letters set, I knew I wanted to make personalized cards. I made one for each of my daughters. You can use this set to make any sentiment puzzle you want! Just a little background on my card for Courtney… she uses the word epic to describe anything awesome, and she uses it multiple times per day because she is the happiest person on the face of the earth. Just being around her makes you love life. In the latest card she made me, she wrote, “Thank you for blessing me with all your epicness”. Okay, I’ll stop before I get carried away – thank you for letting me go on about her. 🙂

Honestly, I wish I had left a little more white space on Courtney’s card. For Alaina’s card, I made something a little more clean and organized (in my comfortable little box, haha):

The video is for Courtney’s card, but I also included the supplies for Alaina’s card in the list below.

Enjoy!

    What a fun stamp set! I recently made a word puzzle card for Father’s Day using a Lawn Fawn set – you should check it out on my blog, Darlene! I love the scrabble look!

    I just have to get this stamp set. I know so many people who play scrabble. Perfect for any occasion.

    Epic card and stamp set… I remember summer days from my childhood playing Scrabble on a neighbor’s porch. Very relaxing… I think I need to bring that tradition back!

    What a fun, fun card and the story behind the word EPIC is just sweet as can be. I really laugh out loud when I read what Courtney said to you, I’ve never heard the word “EPICNESS” but your little girl is right, you are indeed EPIC!!!!!
    Thank you for sharing this fabulous cards and your sweet little girl’s words.
    Maria.
    PS. I’ve been meaning to ask you about the music you play in the background, I love it, it’s fun and relaxing and perfectly fitted for your videos. Does this melody have a name? I love it.

      Hi Maria, thank you so much for your kind words! Regarding the music, it’s a looped jingle I purchased from pond5.com. They have a lot of really fun choices.

    That’s a cute card – as usual. 🙂 But I have to say your daughter wins the prize for using “epicness” to describe you. That says a lot about your relationship. Thanks for sharing another great card, and a cute story. God bless.

    Don’t care what you say!!!! The background is gorgeous. As is the entire card.

    I am so happy to hear that other craft rooms get a little messy. I love the Scrabble pieces.

    Super cards, your girls must think you are such a “COOL” mom!! I can’t imagine your room being a mess…that really cracked me up!!

    I really like those Scrabbley tile stamps…If I can get away with not writing my own words with alpha stamps I do because I have only been successful doing it ONE SINGLE TIME!!! I think I’m just too much of a perfectionist and if it does not line up PERFECTLY, I have to trash it and start over…got frustrated too many times. So generally, I don’t buy them.

    That is really neat that SSS asked you to do help them celebrate their new Color of Fun launch!! Congrats, it’s well deserved!!! *cheers* Have a fabulous rest of the afternoon/evening! =)

    I’m amazed at how you got your tiles so evenly spaced & lined up just with an acrylic block! I think that would have been the most stressful part, if I made this card. LOL Love the colors you used, especially on the tiles. They do look pretty realistic.

    Great shading! I really thought these were popped up and I was going to be impressed that you took the time to cut each tile out. lol I like this set — no need to be perfectly straight since they’re usually not so on the board. We’re a family of readers and word game players — this set would be perfect!

    I really liked this card! I thought your background was great – it did look like sun rays. I was impressed how well you colored between the tiles! You’ve got a steady hand!

    Hi Darlene, When I saw this card pic, I thought for sure you’d be using the mist. Not that I have one yet, but I feel like I’d personally be crooked without one, from my own experiences using alphabet stamp sets. Was there a particular reason you didn’t use it for this?

    • wrote on June 19th, 2015 at 9:47 am

      Darlene DeVries

      I didn’t use the Misti for multiple reasons… I was going to be stamping many of the stamps more than once, and with the Misti I would have to clean them every time since I would be laying down the stamp to line it up before stamping (I suppose I could have used the grid sheet and cleaned it when I was done). Also, since I had the pencil line, and the tiles had their own line at the bottom, it’s easy to quickly line up and stamp. Don’t get me wrong – I love my Misti more and more every day, but this time it just seemed easier to use the blocks.

    Great card. I suspect that tile set will be a big seller thanks to you…clever way to make the greeting. Love it. You are so creative. You must just hum with ideas!!

    How cute!!! Your background is just fine and the card is just so different. BTW darlene, I have to tell you that your voice is so soothing and clear. I appreciate it when I watch a video and can totally understand everything being said. Thanks for another great idea!

      Thank you Lizzie. 🙂

    I am with you Lizzi. I would have to use my MISTI. Great card Darlene . Would it work if I sponged the background first then placed the tiles. I am looking forward to your next video. Hugs, Glenis

      Darlene DeVries

      Sure, Glenis. But I would cut the tiles and adhere them on top. The die is not see-through, so it’s hard to line up. Scissors or a trimmer would be easier, since they are square.

    What cute cards. I am with the others my letters would have not come out straight. Background turned out great also. Thanks.

    Idk why you don’t like the blue…I totally thought it looked like rays of light. I thought it was beautiful. The only thing is, maybe I would’ve blended from the sun, up towards the tiles, to hide where the marker started each time and left darker spots. But I thought that before you added the yellow. Idk…I think it looks great. 🙂 You’re just a perfectionist and too hard on yourself (like me, lol).
