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.

Simple Stems Trio!

Posted on

One of the challenges I set myself at the crop over the week-end was to do three cards using the beautiful Simple Stems Stamp Set found in the Celebrate the Everyday Catty. With seven stamps in the set it wasn’t going to be a difficult challenge, lol!

For the first card Calypso Coral Cardstock and Smoky Slate Cardstock were used as my layers to highlight the Silver Heat Embossing and the Watercolor Wonder DSP.

Simple Stems - Make a Wish - JIFThis next card is very clean which makes it VERY adaptable to most any situation – thank you, birthday, congratulations, or even with sympathy – simply by swapping the Basic Pearls with a sentiment.

My last card came together quite by accident. The “L” layout I already had in my mind but it just wasn’t coming together Friday night so went home to sleep on it. Just as slumber was about to wash over me so did inspiration, this being the end result. Oh, how I’m going to miss Primrose Petals, sniff sniff, which I stamped the flower three times in then fussy cut each one then layered them on top of each other with dimensionals!

Simple Stems - Sending Good Thoughts - JIFAs you can see, the Simple Stems Stamp Set is a brilliantly adaptable stamp set, great as part of one’s stash! 🙂

Eggstra Spectacular!

Posted on

With Spring Break almost over it’s now time to begin preparations for Easter. I can never work out if it’s a good thing or a bad thing when Easter falls in late April.

Whatever the dates for Easter though, cards are still required and what better set is there then the gorgeous set in the Occasions Catty, the Eggstra Spectacular Stamp Set (yup, I may just have kicked the Spring Catty habit but no promises, lol!) ! Seriously, how cute is this?

Eggstra Spectacular - the cutest Easter set EVER!

With a couple of items which are still available from Sale-a-Bration, combined with paper from the  Fresh Prints DSP Stack, the end result is the cutest Easter card!

 Then for some reason I once AGAIN (even I’m beginning to get tired of this) reached for the Summer Starfruit Cardstock, pairing it with the Silver Heat Embossing – making it very regal indeed!

My next card actually came together quite by accident as there were a couple of the tags from the Sale-a-Bration Designer Banner Kit on my table and, well… this goes with this goes with this and voila! How cute is that little bunny I ask you? 🙂 Eggstra Spectacular - Banner Kit - JIF

As you can see, that Designer Banner Kit is quite versatile so if you haven’t obtained one for yourself yet, there’s still just under a week before 2014 Sale-a-Bration concludes so please, PLEASE call me today to place your order – 250-632-7248.
