Festival of Trees

Posted on

Today for 2-4-Tuesday I’ve using for the first time the Festival of Trees Stamp Set. This is a set I have LOTS of plans for but today I wanted to highlight how the same design and color scheme can be used for two COMPLETELY different occasions.

The color for each card is Island Indigo. The first card is on a base of Very Vanilla Cardstock with the smallest border in Island Indigo Cardstock. Only the one stamp that has been stamped then stamped again without re-inking. 1/4″ Island Indigo Cotton Ribbon along with a sentiment from the Gifts of Kindness Stamp Set finishing the card.

The second card is EXACTLY the same design but on a base of white and has been finished off with silver ribbon, a Christmas sentiment and Silver Glimmer Paper. On the tree branches the smallest amount of 2-Way Glue Pen has been used with Dazzling Diamond Glitter added.

Old World Gifts of Kindness

Posted on

It hasn’t been my intention to continually use the Soho Subway DSP but it certainly has become that way though hasn’t it? On this card I have chosen yet another design of this range to punch out hexagons.

Old World Gifts of Kindness

At the top of the card I used some sticky strip to create a ruffle appearance with the beautiful Very Vanilla 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon (more has been ordered so if you forgot or missed out with the first allotment, email me today…), adding some Large Pearl Basic Jewels for some extra ompf!

Very Vanilla Seam Ribbon with Pearls

Then onto the sponged and arranged hexagons I’ve layered (surprise!) the Very Vanilla cardstock onto Early Espresso which I’ve then trimmed with Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim. This ribbon ties into the layers on the base card which is Natural Ivory then is layered with Early Espresso, Crisp Cantaloupe with the Very Vanilla cardstock on top!

Crisp Cantaloupe Ribbon

The stamp of the teapot and flowers came from the Tea Party stamp set and was stamped in Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink. The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso from the Gifts of Kindness stamp set (yes, another of my current favorites for sentiments…)!

The Wondeful Gift of You!

Posted on

This card was actually the result of the Photopolymer card I showed you a couple of days ago. As I was searching for the right DSP to use on that card, I was reminded of this particular design and immediately began constructing a card around it.

Gifts of Kindness

As you can see I was so impressed with this design I haven’t even bothered with layering it, simply sponging the edges in Soft Suede. (I know, weird huh?) The stamp from Gifts of Kindness was stamped directly onto the DSP in Soft Suede Classic Ink which was pretty scary but well worth it for the over-all effect.

Stamping Directly onto DSP!

 To a strip of cardstock I added sticky strip then added two strips of Baked Brown Sugar 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim which I added to the bottom third of the card.

Lovely Label Sentiment

The sentiment I stamped in Soft Suede Classic Ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and sponged with Soft Suede Classic Ink. The bottom section of the label was cut off before I tucked it under the ribbon. Sweet don’t you think?

CARD RECIPE
Cardstock: Very Vanilla
Stamp Set: Kindness Matters
Classic Ink: Soft Suede
DSP: Soho Subway
Ribbon: 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim
Essentials: Paper Trimmer, Paper Snips, Sticky Strip, Sponges
