Thoughtful Bloom (FMS #306)

Posted on

My mammoth month of scrapbooking has come to an end. In just four weeks I completed three albums encompassing two Spring Breaks making for one happy momma. Feels so good to know those memories are now in books.

And as much as I enjoyed putting those three scrapbook albums together, I have to admit I’m now more than a little happy to have time to make some cards. Today’s card below was for Freshly Made Sketches 306.

I’ve had this Chicken Wire Die-Cut for the longest time and worked perfectly with this background when I was looking for that extra little something. All of course topped off with a beautiful Prima Flower.

Letterpress Lanterns

Posted on

For something a little different at a workshop last month, as the hostess had requested something for Christmas but didn’t actually specified a CARD, I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do!

The Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Dies (135853 – $40.50) cut out in White Vellum Cardstock; then heat embossed in Gold Embossing Powder; then finished off with Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, Gold 1/8″ Ribbon and Gold Sequin Trim. All this was then completed with a battery operated tea-light candle placed inside!

The lantern on the right I didn’t turn on, wanting to highlight how fabulous it looks if you wanted to use this Curvy Keepsake Box for something other than a lantern!

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.

Mingle All The Way Banners

Posted on

An important lesson was learnt on this card, there is only so much that the Blendabilities Color Lifter can do!

I was determined to use this Happy Holiday stamp as a banner with the Trim the Tree DSP Stack providing some colorful yet coordinated banners to accompany it. It’s been an age since I’ve created some paper ribbon but the top of these banners gave me the perfect opportunity.
