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.

Festival of Trees

Posted on

Today for 2-4-Tuesday I’ve using for the first time the Festival of Trees Stamp Set. This is a set I have LOTS of plans for but today I wanted to highlight how the same design and color scheme can be used for two COMPLETELY different occasions.

The color for each card is Island Indigo. The first card is on a base of Very Vanilla Cardstock with the smallest border in Island Indigo Cardstock. Only the one stamp that has been stamped then stamped again without re-inking. 1/4″ Island Indigo Cotton Ribbon along with a sentiment from the Gifts of Kindness Stamp Set finishing the card.

The second card is EXACTLY the same design but on a base of white and has been finished off with silver ribbon, a Christmas sentiment and Silver Glimmer Paper. On the tree branches the smallest amount of 2-Way Glue Pen has been used with Dazzling Diamond Glitter added.

Typeset Mojo Monday!

Posted on

In my defense I would like to point out that my card WAS in fact completed last night for this week’s Mojo Monday challenge but I was too exhausted to post anything last night. I’m awake now though and here is my card…

Mojo356 - Typeset Black and Vanilla - JIF

This is this week’s sketch from Mojo Monday.

Mojo356

Although the actual card base was Whisper White Cardstock, after I chose the DSP from the Typeset Pack, I bordered it with Very Vanilla Cardstock. Both the DSP and cardstock were sponged with Crumb Cake Classic Ink.

Using the Very Vanilla 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon to create a ribbon rosette finished off with a Pearl Basic Jewel in the center. And yes, I am working on the Ribbon Bundles, soon I promise, if only there was more hours in the day. 🙁

For the ruching across the card I used some of the beautiful new Very Vanilla 5/8″ Satin Ribbon – I am SO glad this is part of Stampin’ Up’s! ribbon selection now as it’s so wonderful to work with.

All Abloom with Hope

Posted on

Have you checked out the Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set yet on page 240? It is fabulous with so many possibilities. Here are just three cards I made using this set this afternoon.

Bloom with Hope - All Abloom - JIF

I’ve promised myself that next week I will begin looking at my 12×12 DSP’s and give my DSP stacks a rest but when one scrapbooks one is hesitant in cutting into a big sheet, ouch! And as you may have noticed with the flower above, I still have a love/hate relationship going on with the Blendabilities, lol! 🙂

Bloom with Hope - Sympathy - JIF

For the next card I’ve used the leaf stamp to create a background, then kept the flower stamp rather plain that I adhered onto it. This image I stamped twice, colored with the Blendabilities then fussy-cut the two open flowers. Before adhering these flowers I gently shaped the petals up to give it a little more depth.

Going for Gold!

Posted on

Today is Monday which means it’s Mojo Monday time, ready? Here is the sketch…

Mojo 340 SketchAnd here is my take on the sketch which certainly didn’t take me all week to find inspiration for this one. I was out of the starting blocks and running with it in no time at all thanks to the Washi Tape! My card base is Very Vanilla Cardstock with a layer of Primrose Petals Cardstock under the Gold Foil embossed with the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder.

Mojo 340 - Going for Gold - JIFThe gold Washi Tape or as it’s referred to in the Celebrate the Everyday Catty, Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape, was my inspiration for this card. The tape was taken with me to the crop hoping to finally use it, which I didn’t, but as soon as I saw today’s sketch I knew it could be used! Onto a piece of Vanilla Cardstock I arranged and rearranged the Washi Tape finishing it with a piece of Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon.Mojo 340 - Going for Gold - Washi Tape -JIF

The 1¾” circle is Champagne Glimmer Paper, the 1¼” circle is Gingham Garden DSP, and the 1″ circle was punched from Primrose Petals Cardstock then stamped in Gold Metallic Encore with a stamp from the A Round Array Stamp Set. The banner, also in Primrose Petals Cardstock was sponged and stamped also in Gold Metallic Encore with a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. A sentiment from the Loving Thoughts Stamp Set was heat embossed in gold.

Ink: Gold Metallic Encore
DSP: Gingham Garden
Ribbon: Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon
Specialty Paper: Champagne Glimmer, Gold Foil
Big Shot: Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder
Punches: 1¾” Circle, 1¼” Circle, 1″ Circle
Embellishments: Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape, Gold Embossing Powder
Essentials: Paper Trimmer, Paper Snips, Big Shot,

FYI: The end of next month (May) will see the retirement of the 2012-2014 In-Colors of Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple (favorites of mine for Christmas, just sayin’), Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse and Primrose Petals. I know a few of you have already begun stocking piling these colors but it’s best to do this sooner rather than later, particularly if you require Ink Refills for your inks!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
