Stampin’ Up! Thinking of You card

Hi Friends,

This week I’m in Orlando for our 30 year Stampin’ Up! Celebration convention!

One of the FUN things we do is create cards to swap with other Demonstrators ( over 5000 of us!!!)

This is one Swap card I designed.

I used Gray Granite as the base –such a subtle color –I LOVE it!

The next layer is Coastal Cabana embossed with the Layering Leaves Folder.

Then I took a piece of the Silver Foil card stock and layered Frosted Floral DSP on top of that.

Those papers are soooooo beautiful–one side has a muted shimmery appearance to it. GORGEOUS!

The Silver Foil paper makes the designer paper really POP!

SO I swapped these with my house mates  and I’ll show you what I received in return when I’m back in Massachusetts.

I’m SURE I’ll have some gorgeous cards to share with all of you!

Petal Promenade DSP and Fresh Fig Paper!

Hi Friends,

I LOVE the Petal Promenade Designer Series paper.

The colors are soft and romantic and really have such versatility!

Petal Promenade Designer Series and Fresh Fig Card pare make this a simpple yet elegant card. I also used the Foil-Edged rads and Envelopes in SIlver.

See how beautiful that paper is! There are 4 sheets with trimmable elements–just like the one I used.

For a bit of contrast, I used the Galvanized Metallic paper to border the DSP. Then I added the message and layered it using Layering Ovals Framelits . A little Fresh Fig Shear ribbon for a pop of interest.

I did emboss the Fresh Fig card stock using the Layered Leaves Folder.

What do you think?

The base was made with Gray Granite at 8 1/2 x 4 1/4–scored at 4 1/4″.

The next layer is Fresh Fig cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″ and embossed.

Then the DSP was cut at 3″ square and layered onto a piece of the Galvanized Metallic paper (cut 3 1/4″ square), using Snail Adhesive.

That layer was attached using Dimensionals

Then the message was stamped and pushed through the Big Shot using layering Ovals.

I did the same with a piece of Fresh Fig to back the white layer.

Lastly I cut a piece of the Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon and attached to the back of the oval.

I can NOT say enough about how much I LOVE the Foil-Edged Cards and Envelopes! They come in either gold or silver and add such a degree of elegance, in my humble opinion!

They are so easy to use and certainly lend a air of elegance to any card you make!

Happiness Surrounds and COLOR!

Hi Friends,

I made this card for my trip to Idaho.

I’ll be needing ‘thank you’s’ so this was a fast and easy way to create some simple yet sweet cards.

Happiness Surrounds and COLOR!

I am IN LOVE with Blackberry Bliss and Gray Granite colors .

So the base is Gray Granite at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.

Next is a layer of Blackberry Bliss at 5 1/4 x 4.

Then a layer of Frosted Floral Dsp at 5 x 3 3/4.

Using the Stitched Shapes Framelits, I cut a larger oval in Blackberry Bliss, a next sized smaller in Whisper White.

I used the Happiness Surrounds stamp set images and Gray Granite, Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive inks to create a flower image.

Snailed the  white layer onto the blackberry layer then popped a few Dimensionals on and placed it on the card.

I added a thank you from All Things Thanks –and voila –card is done!

Not to leave out the envelope (no naked envelopes in my house!) – added the leaves in Old Olive.

  5. Starting from the bottom, I used Marina Mist ink for the water shadow.
  6. Then using Night of Navy ink, I added the water lines.
  7. Next I used Soft Suede and added the sandy beach and the trees.
  8. Then using Old Olive, the mountains were stamped full strength and stamped off.
  9. The sun was stamped with Crushed Curry –and the message in Night of Navy.
  10. The inside is a piece of Whisper White stamped with the trees and mountains and I did the same thing to the envelope! (no naked envelopes in my house!!!)

Oh So Eclectic Embossing Paste

HI Friends,

I am a big fan of Embossing Paste.

 This card, inspired by Stamping With Joy, uses the White Paste with the the Patterned Party Decorative mask.

It is EASY to use. It dries very quickly and the texture it adds is lovely. The Oh So Eclectic Bundle is fun to use and the colors are so fresh and pretty.

I also added a Faceted Jewel to the center of one flower…just another eye appealing dimension!
