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.

Seasonally Scattered Christmas

Posted on

Last week at a workshop the hostess wanted a Make & Take for Christmas but something a little different. Talk about challenging but the Trim the Tree DSP Stack gave me all the inspiration required.

Merry was heat-embossed with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder directly onto the DSP, then we mixed things up with Early Espresso Cardstock as my final border and Early Espresso 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon. With the All is Calm Snowflake Embellishment I snipped the hanger from it, adhering it with Sticky Strip then finishing it off with a Rhinestone Basic Jewel. Voila!

Snowflake Card Thinlit

Posted on

This was love at first-sight, the Snowflake Card Thinlits Dies, it is SO gorgeous PLUS it co-ordinates with the Letterpress Winter Stamp Set as well as the Circles Collection Framelits!

For my first card with this Snowflake Card I also used some of the beautiful All is Calm Specialty DSP, All is Calm Designer Washi Tape, as well as some of the beautiful new Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper from the Annual Catalog.

These snowflakes also gave me the opportunity to try out the new Transfer Adhesive Sheets. Adhesive Sheets whereby you lay down on the wrong-side what you wish to adhere, rub over the item thus creating your own “sticker” as such. Too easy!

CARD RECIPE
Cardstock: Whisper White
Stamp Set: Letterpress Winter
DSP: All is Calm Specialty
Glimmer Paper: Dazzling Diamonds
Embossing: Pool Party Embossing Powder, Versamark, Heat Gun
Washi Tape: All is Calm

Mingle All The Way

Posted on

Today’s 2-4-Tuesday is another from the Holiday Catty – Mingle All The Way Stamp Set. When you hear the name you immediately think of Christmas parties but today I chose two events occurring this month – Thanksgiving and Halloween. As much as I can’t believe I’m saying this but we’ll save Christmas for another time, lol!

The first card is my cryptic version of a turkey. I know I’ve said this before but I have to say I’m lovin’ how the Blendabilities Pens color the Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

For my Halloween card instead of the Pumpkin Pie Cardstock of above I used the Tangelo Twist Cardstock with the Filigree Embossing Folder . And just for a change I used some Pear Pizzazz Cardstock as my card base with some Back to Black DSP. The eyes are from a Word Window Punch cut in half and Basic Black Cardstock 1/4″ punched circle added.

Age Awareness

Posted on

Today’s 2-4-Tuesday is the Age Awareness Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. When I first saw this set I just knew I had to have it. Of course,  sitting there this morning with it, well, my mind was… blank!

Fortunately the courier arrived just at the same time with another box of goodies from Stampin’ Up! which included the wonderful Filigree Frame Textured Impression Embossing Folder.

WOW, this is going to quickly become my “go-to” for a quick card as it creates such a beautiful effect, requiring little else besides a sentiment and perhaps an embellishment or two.

This next card was the result of a total accident. I’d actually punched some Petite Petals from the Sweet Taffy DSP for the previous card before realizing if I wanted to give it to a male, well, flowers weren’t going to cut it. Hence the Silver Glimmer Paper stars cut from the Star Framelits.

Looking at the DSP I wished I hadn’t punched the flowers thus began attempting to “replace” the flowers. Didn’t take long to conclude this was NOT going to work but could in-fact work for me in another way.

The flowers were then each finished off with a silver sequin from the Frosted Sequins available now in the Holiday Catty with a small Rhinestone Basic Jewel in its center to complete it. I couldn’t resist then adding more bling to the left-hand corner of the card!
