Bright & Beautiful Cards

August 23, 2014

My husband’s cousin is celebrating her birthday today and we are joining her for dinner.  I thought that I would make something small to give to her, so I created a set of four Christmas Cards using the Bright and Beautiful stamp set. This set can be purchased as a bundle with the Stars Framelit Dies as part of the Big Shot and Bundles promotion till the end of this month.

 I used four different colours for my cards – Real Red, Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green.  I cut a star shape into Whisper White card using the Stars Framelits Dies and stamped the greeting from the Bright and Beautiful stamp set beneath the cut out using ink to match the card.  The star cut out card is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the middle sized star from the Bright and Beautiful stamp set onto Whisper White card using the matching ink and cut it out using the matching Star Framelit Die.  The stamped star is attached to the card front inside the large star frame.  I added a large Basic Rhinestone to the centre of the stamped star.

Inside the card I stamped the greeting from the same stamp set using the matching ink.

I am really happy with these cards, this might be one we make in my upcoming Christmas Card Class.  What do you think, would you like to make this card.

A quick post

August 22, 2014

Life has still been a little hectic, so I haven’t posted as often as I would like.  However, today I have a really quick share of 4″ x 3″ Whisper White pocket card I made for Project Life.

0112

I had some squares of paper from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack left over from a Make and Take and thought I would used them.  I punched the squares using the Banner Punch and attached them across the top of the card.  I punched Blackberry Bliss card using the Cupcake Builder Punch and attached them between the banners.  I trimmed the end banners to match the edge of the card.  I stamped the “celebration” from the Project Life Remember This photopolymer stamp set across the bottom of the card using Blackberry Bliss ink.  I haven’t rounded the corners yet, in case I want them square when I use it on my page.

This just might be a great way to use up my left over card kits, what do you think?

Techno Vivid Vases

August 16, 2014

Once again I find my inspiration coming from the sketch challenge at MaryJo’s Technostamper Blog.  This weeks sketch is super simple and lets you challenge your imagination.

I embossed Whisper White card using the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Smoky Slate card.  I cut one long edge of Smoky Slate card using the Finishing Touches Edgelit and attached it behind Cherry Cobbler card which I embossed using the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  The whole piece is attached to the left hand edge of the card front.

I stamped three of the vases from the Vivid Vases stamp using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White card and cut out the image using one of the Circle Framelits Dies.  I coloured the vases and flowers using Smoky Slate, Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blendibilities before attaching it to the lower right hand corner of the card front using dimensionals.

021

Inside the card I kept it pretty simple.  I embossed Cherry Cobbler card using the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder and attached a strip of Smoky Slate cut using the Finishing Touches Edgelit.  This piece is attached to lower edge of Whisper White card before attaching to the inside of the card base.

I think this card is so gorgeous and I know just the person I am sending this to.  I’d love to hear what you think.

Technostamper Challenge 326

August 11, 2014

030I needed to make another card for an upcoming class and the sketch challenge at MaryJo’s Technostamper blog inspired me to make this card.

I embossed Whisper White card using the Zig Zag Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Basic Gray card.  I embossed Hello Honey card using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and attached it to the centre of the Whisper White card.  I punched one long edge of Lost Lagoon card using the Spiral Border Punch and attached it to the card front.  I cut Blackberry Bliss card using the smallest Deco Label Framelit and attached it to the card front using dimensionals. 031 I cut three ties from three different designs in the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack using the tie from the Baby’s First Framelit Dies and attached them to the Deco Label Framelit032I stamped the greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set onto Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink and punched it using the Word Window Punch.  I attached the greeting to a Blackberry Bliss Modern Label and then the card front.

I added a punch strip of Lost Lagoon card to Whisper White card which I used to decorate the inside of my card.

Thanks to this sketch I am now ready for my card class.  I really would love to hear what you think of my card.

Bye for now,

Freshly Made Sketches 148

August 9, 2014

098The sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week gave me the opportunity to show off a stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue which will be released on the 1st September.  I love that I get to “play” with these items a whole month before the catalogue is released.  Just one of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.

Anyway this is my creation.  I attached a piece of Early Expresso Polka Dot Designer Series paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack to scored and folded Whisper White card.  I stamped the tree images from the Festival of Trees stamp set onto Whisper White card using Garden Green ink.  099I stamped the baubles onto one of the trees using Cherry Cobbler ink and the tinsel onto the solid tree using Early Expresso ink.  I was able to do this quickly and easily because this is a photopolymer stamp set, therefore, I can easily see where to place the images.  I punched the trees out using the matching Tree Punch.   101The stamp set and punch can be purchased as a bundle so you get to save money and have a fabulous stamp set and punch at your disposal to create as many Christmas cards as you desire.  I stamped the greeting onto the Whisper White card using Early Expresso ink before attaching the trees to the panel.  The tree with the baubles is attached using dimensionals.  The image panel is attached to Cherry Cobbler card and then the card front using dimensionals.

Want another surprise, well the greeting comes from a stamp set called Good Greetings and this is going to be a special release for Hostesses.  I’m not sure of the dates yet, so keep watching, but you will really want this set, it has 19 greetings covering just about every occasion you can think of and I think the font is just gorgeous.

Soooooo, I hope you enjoy this card and that it has made you excited to see the new Holiday Catalogue.

Bye for now,

In This Together

August 6, 2014

005Today I am sharing with you another card I made for my New Catalogue Launch.  This card uses the really fun set In This Together.  This stamp set has three fantastic images of some really special ladies which are just perfect for colouring with the Blendibilities range of markers.

I embossed Whisper White card using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Coastal Cabana.  I added a strip of Polka Dot Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.  I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then the fun began.  006To colour the image I used a range of Blendibilities including – Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry Cherry Cobbler and the Skin Tone Collection.  I love how fantastic she looks.  Once coloured I attached the image panel to Coastal Cabana card and then the card front using dimensionals.

007Inside the card I added a little more Designer Series Paper and Coastal Cabana Card.  The words are stamped in Coastal Cabana ink and come from the Feels Good stamp set.

The combination of these two stamp sets works well, don’t you think?

I really hope you are enjoying seeing how great the Blendibilities markers are.  I am getting kind of addicted to them and love the blending and shading that I can create without even thinking.  Having the dark, medium and light colours lets my colouring look so gorgeous – I think I even stayed within the lines!.
