A Wondrous Noel

Posted on

For today’s Die-Cut Thursday I’ve chosen the Wondrous Wreath Framelits Dies. This is a very clean card for me but it’s certainly one that you could add too with ribbons and more cardstock if you wanted.

A Letterpress Winter

Posted on

The Letterpress Winter Stamp Set coordinates with the Snowflake Card Thinlits Die but for today’s 2-4-Tuesday I’ve used it as a stand alone stamp set. And what’s more, I’ve used designs straight from the Holiday Catty but have changed them up slightly. Well, this first one I did!

Naturals Vanilla Cardstock and Very Vanilla Cardstock was used as my base with Gold Heat Embossing, Gold Foil Paper, Gold Sequins and Gold Ribbon.

For the second card there’s no denying I pretty much did what was in the catalog with the beautiful All Is Calm Specialty DSP as my background with Soft Sky Cardstock being the center-piece of the card with White Heat Embossing.

Bright and Beautiful Star

Posted on

For today’s Die-Cut Thursday I thought I’d try something different with the Stars Framelits.

Instead of stamping then die-cutting, I die-cut a star then used it as a mask, sponging Pool Party Classic Ink within it. I then stamped in the same color a stamp from the Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set.

In the center of these stars I stamped the sentiment from the Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set then Silver Heat-Embossed it. The base and background of this card is Naturals White Cardstock. The card front framed in Pool Party Cardstock then Silver Foil Paper.

Ornamental Pines

Posted on

The Ornamental Pines Stamp Set is today’s 2-4-Tuesday stamp set.

For this first card I tried to push myself away from the traditional Christmas colors using Strawberry Slush Cardstock and Pool Party Cardstock instead as my frames around the Silver Heat-Embossed stamp on the Whisper White Cardstock.

I added a strip of Silver Foil Paper which I punched with Confetti Stars. Over the half-way mark of this punching I’ve adhered with Stampin Dimensionals a sentiment stamped on Pool Party Cardstock in Pool Party Classic Ink from the Merry Everything Stamp Set then punched with the Note Tag Punch.

As tempting as it was to emboss the pine-needles again for this second card I resisted the urge, choosing instead to only Silver Heat-Emboss the pine-cones onto the Always Artichoke Classic Ink stamped needles.

A Silver Glimmer Paper strip edged either side with 1/8″ Real Red Ribbon really popped against the background of Very Vanilla Cardstock. The sentiment was die-cut from the Window Frames Collection Framelits then edged with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

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.
