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.

For All Things

A lovely stamp set if you celebrate Fall is the For All Things Stamp Set. I’ve seen some wild and wonderful things done with the set but when I looked at it today all I saw was clean and crisp.

For my first of my 2-4-Tuesday cards I went with tones of brown with Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede then some Always Artichoke just to break things up. All very Fall-like!

For the second card I really wanted to introduce some Blackberry Bliss into the card as it feel like FOREVER since I’ve used this color. The same with using the Gold Foil Paper as a border, I honestly can’t remember the last time I did this.

Thus giving me the perfect opportunity to try out one of the beautiful Gold Basic Metal Buttons from the Holiday Catalog. Which, as you can see, works very well with the 1/8″ Gold Ribbon!

Negative Deco Labels Mojo

Another week, another MOJO MONDAY challenge. Here is my card for this week’s sketch.

Mojo 360 - Blackberry Bliss - JIFAnd here is this week’s sketch. Yeah, that “Tall & Skinny” seemed to have slipped by me when I created this card. I read it as it was printing but poof, never to be remembered again. Oops!

The card came about so quickly all because the “negative” piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock from a Deco Label Die-Cut was sitting on my table. From this all that was required as a pattern from the Moonlight DSP Stack and matching cardstock stamped in the same color with a stamp from Work of Art Stamp Set.

Onto a piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock the sentiment from the Remembering Your Birthday Stamp Set was stamped in Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink. The “YOU” I re-stamped, cut-out and placed a Stampin’ Dimensionals behind to give it a little more emphasis.

The finishing touch was some Gold Sequin Trim which I’ve become rather partial too. Three of the these sequins I glued to the top right-hand corner of the card.
