Frosted Floral DSP meets Hanging Garden

Hi Friends,

Today I want to show you how easy a few card techniques can be used to  make a very pretty Stampin’ Up! card!

First I took a piece of Crumb Cake card stock as my base.

Next I took a piece of Crumb Cake ( 1/4′ smaller by length and width of the base) and stamped, in Early Expresso ink,  the words “Thank You Kindly” from the Hanging Garden stamp set.

NEXT –magic with the Subtles Embossing Folder!I ( one of MY NEW FAVORITES!)

Take a look at the ‘subtle’ yet textured look of that layer.

Can you see the fine lines? Makes me think of fine wale corduroy.

Next I took a piece of Soft Suede card stock and used the Layering Squares Framelits, with my Big Shot,  cut 3 squares.

Then I took a piece of the Frosted Floral DSP ( LOVE the colors and the fine shimmer!!!) and made 3 smaller squares.

Of course I used Snail to adhere all 3 pieces of DSP to the card stock.

Then I arranged the squares on the embossed layer.

To add just a bit of interest, I used 3 enamel shapes in the lower right hand corner.

There you have it…3 easy techniques:
1. Using the Subtles Embossing Folder

2. Using the Layering Squares Framelits

3. Adding a few embellishments.

Three simple ways to make a card –make it YOUR own and send it with love!

You could make a boxed set of these for a gift!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Tags

Hi Friends,

The elves are surely BUSY!

What fun we had last Monday making a few Christmas tags.

Talk about easy, fast and FUN!

We used the Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Signs of Santa.

The elves are adorable so after we stamped them with Staz-ON ink, we colored them using the Many Marvelous Markers.

Cute cute CUTE!

Of course I had to use Wink of Stella for a bit of pop!

The base of the tag was a piece of Poppy Parade and Garden Green cards stock. I cut them to 4″ x 2″.

To make the cut out for the ribbon, I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.

Then I used the Tags & Tidings stamp set with the Christmas Tag Thinlits. This allowed me to have a LOT of options for the little tag at the top.

There are 16 images on that stamp. I inked it up with Memento ink -then cut them out with the matching Christmas Tag Thinlit.

It was EASY and fast!

A little piece of the Santa’s Workshop Specialty DSP layerd on top of the card stock…. then popped the little elf ( and Mrs. Claus) on with a Dimensional.

Next I used a few Red Rhinestone Jewels to give a bit of sparkle…

About 12″ of Garden Green and White Baker’s Twine to use as ties and voila!

I just think they are adorable and certainly will add a bit of festive pizzazz to any package!

What do YOU think?

 

We’ll be making more cute tags as the days approach!

Would love to have YOU come to one of my classes!

Simple stamping… as easy as 1,2, 3

Hi Friends,

I just cam back from OnStage in Orlando.

One of the re-visited ideas is to take a look at simpler stamping.

What does THAT mean?

Well, simply, it means to keep your design impressive yet easy..

Here is a card we did at my Monday class.

I LOVE ( I know I’ve said this before, but I do LOVE the Foil -Edged Silver and Gold Paper and envelopes.

They are so easy to use and VERY VERSATILE.

So for this card, I used the Gold Edged Paper and then added a layer of Rich Razzleberry card stock.

Next I cut a piece of the Sweet Soiree DSP ( yes it’s retired but I just had to use it!) and layered it on top.

That paper is gorgeous and it was just enough to give the card some simple elegance.

See how nicely the layer of Rich Razzleberry fits on top of the Gold-Edged card base? Then add the DSP and oh so pretty.

Inside I added a message from the Cake Soiree stamp set –and voila–done deal!

You could use ANY DSP for any occasion. These card and envelope packs are a great deal and fun to use!

What do YOU think?

Now I’m not sure if I’ll be able to control my urges to use more layers and embellishments but every once in a while we’ll do some ‘simple stamping’.

How does that sound to you?

Please let me know your thoughts about simpler, easier stamping.. I aim to please and need YOUR input!

This is one Pillow present I gave to my peeps at OnStage in Orlando AND in Maine. ( I love showering my peeps with little love gifts—passing it on and I SO APPRECIATE my peeps!!)

Stampin' Up! Love You To Pieces

These were so easy to make!

A few Reese’s Pieces in out little cello bags –topped over with a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock.

Then I used the FUN puzzle pieces from the Love You To Pieces stamp set!

FUN FUN FUN and I think cute!

What do YOU think?

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!
