A SILVER CHRISTMAS JUST FOR YOU

Today’s card gives you a touch of silver with these lovely snowflakes!

CAS(E) this sketch posted a good one for this week and I really had to think about the layout of my project.  Here’s their sketch so you can see why I did my card this way.

Starting with the Year of Cheer Specialty designer paper gave me the great idea to add those silver snowflakes from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits dies.  Then, it was easy to add the sentiment from Star of Light heat embossed in silver to finish things off!

I’ve always tended toward silver as part of my Christmas decorating but have a friend that really likes gold.  Which is your favourite?

Here’s the list of goodies that I used.

DON’T FORGET THOSE BIRTHDAYS!

Do you have birthdays that happen during the holidays?  Don’t forget to build your stash of birthday cards!  I took some time to create this one using our new Stampin’ Blends.

To get the layout for that lovely, bright flower, I followed along with CAS(E) this sketch.

It took 3 stamp sets to create the background and add the greeting but I loved every minute in creating this card.  Adding the Rhinestones just finished it off perfectly!

SIMPLE GIFTS

Welcome to another edition of Christmas on my blog!  Today’s card is simple with a bit of a slant.

CAS(E) this Sketch has a pretty slanted (lol) sketch to play along with this week so I pulled two patterns from the Christmas Around the World Designer series paper to start.  I cut them out with our Layering Squares Framelits dies and added the greeting from the beautiful Star of Light stamp set(142110).

If you look very closely you can see that I used the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing folder to add texture to the card base.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.  Remember – the Designer Paper Buy 3 Get 1 Free sale is still on until October 31, 2017!  Make sure that you are stocked up!

THE THANKFUL OWL

Happy Tuesday to you!  It took 3 stamp sets to create today’s card but I think this thankful owl was worth it.

I’m playing along with 2 challenges as well, a colour challenge from The Paper Players and the sketch that CAS(E) this sketch posted.

The Colours that The Paper Players asked us to use are Early Espresso, Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach.  I had a little trouble adding the Peekaboo Peach but think that the owl looks pretty good in that colour and sitting on that branch.  The card base was embossed using the Woodland embossing folder and you may have to click on the picture to get a good look.

This card was fun to put together and here’s the list of products that I used.

PRETTY FALL FLOWERS

Fall is a colourful time of year with its pretty fall flowers and beautifully coloured leaves!  That’s what I tried to capture for today’s project.

I thought it best to start out with a clean card base of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I went from there with the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch, the colour choices from Create with Connie and Mary as well as the theme challenge from The Paper Players.

I also used the Colorful Seasons Bundle so I could use the matching leaf die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  They are lovely aren’t they?  And this stamp set is just one of the items on for 15% off for the World Cardmaking Day specials good until October 10, 2017!

PRETTY ORCHIDS JUST FOR YOU

Do you like Orchids?  They just seem to say something exotic don’t they?  Todays card shows off a few with a little heat embossing.

The Paper Players posted a great Colour Challenge that includes, Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz, Silver and White so I went for it!  I wanted to use the Climbing Orchid Bundle so checked out the card sketch from CAS(E) this sketch and went from there.

The silver on my card is the mat behind those pretty pink orchids and I combined White and Silver emboss powder(about 1/2 tsp of each colour) to get that muted colour for the flower centres and the greeting.

Here’s a copy of the sketch in case you’d like to play along as well.

CRAFTING FOREVER FROM STAMPIN’ UP!

This new stamp set, Crafting Forever(143958CM 143955WM) is a lot of fun to create with and today’s card delivers a clean and simple message.

I had some fun with the Gold Emboss Powder and Heat tool to get that golden pen and then cut it out to sit just so on the card.

The layout from CAS(E) this Sketch was the starting point and that’s why the pen sits just above the greeting circle.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

HELLO FLAMINGO

Today I thought that I’d share this combination called Hello Flamingo with you.  It shows how you can use the Color Theory Designer Series paper stack with any stamp set in the 2017-2018 Catalogue.

I attached a 3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of the designer paper to the front of the card and then added each image to follow along with the CAS(E) this Sketch layout.  Each piece was stamped onto a piece of whisper white cardstock and then cut out with our Paper Snips. The pineapple, from the Pop of Paradise stamp set,  was coloured “direct to stamp” with the Crushed Curry and Garden Green Markers.  Looks nice and summer-y don’t you think?

Here’s a copy of the sketch so you can see the layout.

I’ve posted the Class that I’m offering for the month of June.  Please visit my Class Calendar to check them out and to sign up.

Here’s the full list of products that I used for today’s card.  You might like to give this idea a try.
