Birthday Party Pandas (MFTWSC368)

My Party Pandas card today was inspired by this week’s sketch from My Favorite Things. Stamps from the Timeless Texture Stamp Set added some texture to the Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock.

This is Sketch 368 from My Favorite Things.

Making Spirits Bright

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.

Bright and Beautiful Star

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

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.

Bermuda Bay Mojo

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!

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.
