Making Spirits Bright

Posted on

Another fun and versatile stamp set for today’s 2-4-Tuesday is the Making Spirits Bright Stamp Set.

For the first card I used the Brushed Silver Cardstock as the base with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. Real Read 3/8″ Satin Woven Ribbon adds a little pop against the All is Calm Specialty DSP. Blendabilites, Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Dazzling Diamond Glitter adding the final touch.

The second card is for New Year’s Eve but could easily be substituted for an Anniversary Card or a Valentine’s Day Card. The ribbons and the Dazzling Diamond Glitter adding the final touches.

Get Your Santa On

Posted on

This stamp set is such a hoot I couldn’t resist choosing it as today’s 2-4-Tuesday. Even the name of it is fun – Get Your Santa On!

And I admit for this first card there isn’t much originality as I so loved the design similar to this in the Holiday Catalog I just had to CASE it and make it mine. Thank you Stampin’ Up!

 This next stamp just begged for some added color from the Blendabilities Pens and who am I to say no!

All is Calm when Quick and Easy

Posted on

For today’s card the dry-embossed Filigree Frame in Coastal Cabana sitting on my desk was my starting point.

I was then determined to use the All is Calm Designer Washi Tape along with the Tree Punch. Silver Foil Stars left over from yesterday’s card along with a sentiment stamped in Coastal Cabana Classic Ink was added. A light sponge of Silver Metallic Ink was the final touch.

Stars for You

Posted on

The inspiration for this card came from Michelle Last over in the UK. It was perfect as it was just what I wanted for a Shaker Card.

On a base of Crumb Cake Cardstock, dry embossed stars also with Crumb Cake Cardstock were framed with Very Vanilla Cardstock. I then Silver Heat Embossed two stamps from the Chalk Talk Stamp Set. Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Baker’s Twine finishing off the card before I adhered the Shaker Frame.

For the Shaker Frame a piece of Window Sheet was cut to size then adhered to the top piece where a 1-3/8″ Circle was punched. Onto the bottom embossed piece a 1-1/2″ foam Shaker Frame was attached. I then added my Silver Foil Stars I punched with the Confetti Stars Punch.

Mingle All The Way

Posted on

Today’s 2-4-Tuesday is another from the Holiday Catty – Mingle All The Way Stamp Set. When you hear the name you immediately think of Christmas parties but today I chose two events occurring this month – Thanksgiving and Halloween. As much as I can’t believe I’m saying this but we’ll save Christmas for another time, lol!

The first card is my cryptic version of a turkey. I know I’ve said this before but I have to say I’m lovin’ how the Blendabilities Pens color the Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

For my Halloween card instead of the Pumpkin Pie Cardstock of above I used the Tangelo Twist Cardstock with the Filigree Embossing Folder . And just for a change I used some Pear Pizzazz Cardstock as my card base with some Back to Black DSP. The eyes are from a Word Window Punch cut in half and Basic Black Cardstock 1/4″ punched circle added.

CARD RECIPE
Cardstock: Whisper White, Naturals Ivory, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie,
Tangelo Twist, Basic Black, Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede

Classic Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Blendabilities: Crumb Cake + Memento Black Ink
DSP: Back to Black
Framelits: Feathers
Embossing Folder: Filigree Frame
Stampin’ Markers: Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum, Pumpkin Pie
Punches: Word Window, 1/4″ Hand Held Circle, 1-3/4″ Circle Scallop
Embellishments: Rhinestone Basic Jewels
Essentials: Paper Trimmer, Paper Snips, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform,

As you can see, this is a great set for so many occasions – so much more than simply Christmas!

Bermuda Bay Mojo

Posted on

Another Monday another Mojo Monday. Here is my card for this week’s challenge.

Mojo363 - Bermuda Bay - JIF

This is the sketch from Mojo Monday.

Mojo363Sketch

A pattern from the Confetti Celebration DSP was my starting point with Bermuda Bay Cardstock as the anchor at the bottom which I mistakenly didn’t stamp with Gorgeous Grunge in Bermuda Classic Ink until AFTER I’d adhered it. Yikes!

Silver Foil Paper was used with the Argyle Embossing Folder to give some dimension to it. The Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper SHOULD have been corner punched on all four corner but once again forgot to do this until AFTER I’d adhered it. Double yikes!

Mojo363 - Bermuda Bay - Argyle - JIF

Wondering what I could do and use as a sentiment, A Happy Hooray Stamp Set became the perfect choice with the round sentiment which was die-cut then edged in Dazzling Diamond Glitter. Underneath this sentiment is White 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon and 1/8″ Silver Ribbon.
