Pictogram Punches

When the new catalog came out I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the Pictogram Punches Stamp Set on page 89. It was a slow start but eventually the wheels began turning and I began creating. This was my first card using the colors Pacific Point and Soft Sky as a border all with a hint of silver.

After such a clean card I needed more color so created this one. For the vase I used Stampin’ Markers but I wasn’t happy with the strength of color in the vase so “touched it up” with the Not Quite Navy Blendability. Note to self: use LIGHT colors FIRST not the dark! The “thanks” sentiment is from the Oh My Goodies Stamp Set.

This next card came together all by itself. The What’s Up Punch providing the large Red Glimmer Arrows on either side of the I {heart} U sentiment.

How color can change things…

Preparing for a workshop last week which was focusing on heat embossing, I had the best time creating. I just couldn’t decide what design would be best so kept creating until it “felt” right.

This was one of my first creations. I just love how the silver embossing is so striking on the white vellum cardstock which I’ve then mounted on the silver glimmer paper. Of course, just a smidge of Cherry Cobbler always adds to the Christmas feel with the sentiment from Sassy Salutations finishing it off nicely!

Joyful Christmas - Silver - JIF

Having made the card in silver and white, I couldn’t resist trying it in a combination of Very Vanilla and Gold Embossing. The red this time was the red glimmer paper behind the flowers that had been fussy cut and mounted upon it. Aren’t my gold “balls” just the best, lol? I was determined to have gold balls in the center of my flower so I bunched up a mini glue-dot and doused it with gold glitter!

Joyful Christmas - Red - JIF

The final design used for the “Make & Take” was a combination of the two cards with Very Vanilla as the base but using Silver and Cherry Cobbler. The Frosted Finishes Embellishment completing the fussy-cut flowers perfectly.  At first I was concerned it may have been a tad plain but I’m relieved to say the ladies were MORE than happy with it, making me EXTREMELY happy! 😉
