Joy to all Card

Today I have 2 different versions of the same card design. I love the foil snowflakes and the patterned paper corners. I love the dry embossing with the Quilt Top embossing folder with a little stamping and coloring to finish everything off. Take a look at the projects below and let me know what you think.

.

Supplies
.

Additional supplies: powder bag, ATG, heat tool and clear blocks.

  1. Create a card base from Whisper White card stock to measure 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. Run the card front through the Big Shot with the Quilt Top embossing folder.
  2. Cut a piece of the DSP to 3” x 4” and then cut in half diagonally. Place on desired card stock and cut to size. Adhere the DSP to the card stock with favorite adhesive and then adhere to the card front using liquid glue, in the bottom left and top right corner.
  3. Die-cut a 2 3/8” circle from Garden Green card stock and then a smaller circle from white card stock. Stamp the focal image on the white circle using Garden Green ink and color the berries in with Cherry Cobbler marker.
  4. Rub the center of the focal image with a powder bag, stamp the sentiment with VersaMark ink, sprinkle with silver embossing powder and heat set.
  5. Adhere foil snowflake to the Garden Green circle and then adhere the focal image on top.

    Happy Thanksgiving- card

    Hello and welcome to today's post. I have a water-colored Thanksgiving card for you today that was pretty easy to create with the ink refills used. The drying time is the only thing that makes this project time-consuming. I created a separate water color panel and then stamped the leaf images on top of the dried ink. Of course I can't create a card without a little bling so I sprinkled the card front with some sequins. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

    Additional supplies: Fun foam, ATG, clear blocks, Strathmore Watercolor paper,  water and a paintbrush.

    3. Cut a piece of Perfect Plum card stock that measures ¾” x 5 ¼” and adhere to the watercolor panel about a 1/3” of the way up front the bottom of the card base. Next, cut a ½” x 5 ¼” strip from the scrap of watercolor paper, stamp the sentiment with Pear Pizzazz ink and adhere centered to the Perfect Plum strip.
    4. Create a panel (big enough to stamp 4 leaves on) of water-color on watercolor paper using Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Perfect Plum and Pear Pizzazz inks. Let dry and then stamp leaves onto the panel with Memento Tuxedo black ink and then die-cut with coordinating framelits.
    5. Pop one leaf up with foam tape and tie a bow with linen thread and adhere to the bottom of the leaf and then adhere to the card front on the left side of the focal. Adhere the whole watercolor panel to the card base.

    Hello and welcome to the post for today where I did use two discontinued products but I'm sure you can find the same types of dies and stamps in your stash. I'm still working on Holiday cards for the Thanksgiving season and today's card uses dies from Makers Mart DOM Sep17 and some ink for the edges along with the two-tone greeting.

    You're Just Lovely card

    Hello and welcome to today's post. Summer is almost over so I wanted to create a colorful and flowery card before it's time to work on Halloween cards and gifts. This card was created for a Stampin' Up Sept Challenge for a group I'm in and we were instructed to use circles but instead I used flowers. I just love the colors in the DSP that are so light and airy. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.


    .

    Supplies:
    .

    Additional supplies: ATG, clear blocks, powder bag, heat tool.

  1. Create a card base from Night of Navy card stock to measures 4 ¼” x 11” and score at 5 ½”.

  2. Cut a Whisper White panel to measure 4” x 5 ¼” and then cut a strip of DSP to ¾” x 5 ¼” and then one to measure 1 ¼” x 5 ¼”. Adhere the strips on the left side of the panel, leaving a tiny strip of the white panel between each. Adhere the whole panel to the card base.

  3. Next I stamped the three flowers with Versa Mark ink and sprinkled with clear embossing powder and then heat set. I then used a sponge dauber for the center of the flower with Lemon Lime Twist ink and another for the outside of the flower using soft sky ink. Die-cut the flowers with the coordinating thinlits.

  4. Stamp the 2 leaves using the Lemon Lime Twist ink and die-cut using the coordinating thinlits and the Big Shot machine (or your favorite die-cutting machine). Place one leaf in the upper left of the card front using Mini-Glue dots and then place two of the flowers over the stem and DSP. Pop the other flower up with a Dimensional and place the other leaf in the bottom right under the flower.

  5. Stamp the sentiment in the bottom left corner of the card front.


  6. The inside of the card was left blank for a personal message.

    I hope you have enjoyed today's project and will check back often for more inspiration. Thank you for visiting.

    New House card

    Hello and welcome to my newest card design.  This card is pretty special because my Husband's daughter and boyfriend just bought their first house and I wanted to create a New Home card.  This card uses sponging over the mask with ink, some coloring with markers and a little bit of die-cutting. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

     

    Supplies:

    .

    Additional supplies: ATG tape runner, clear blocks.

    1. Create a card base from Whisper White card stock to measures 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼”.

    2. Create a Whisper White panel to measure 4” x 5 ¼”. Sponge the brick mask onto the panel using a dauber and Real Red ink. Sponge the edges of the panel with Soft Suede ink and adhere to the card base.

    3. On a piece of the Wood Textures DSP, stamp the door from the stamp set using Staz On ink. Die-cut the door with the coordinating framelits and the Big Shot machine. Adhere the door to the card front.

    4. Stamp the flower pot twice with Staz On ink and color the images in with markers. Adhere one flower pot on either side of the door.

    5. On a scrap of Whisper White card stock, stamp the welcome mat using Soft Suede ink. Adhere the mat beneath the door.

    6. Open the door, position stamps where you want them and stamp sentiment using Soft Suede ink.

    Stampin' Up World's Best Trophy birthday card

    Hello and welcome to a new card project post using the World's Best Trophy stamp set, the Coffee Break DSP, die-cutting with framelits and some stamping.  I also used this card in a Stampin' challenge in a group I'm in, where we were instructed to use a circle die cut, DSP at the bottom of the card base that measured 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".  Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.


    Supplies:

    1. Cut a ½” x 4 ¼” strip of Garden Green card stock and place over the seam between the card base and the DSP.
    1. Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment in the upper right corner using Early Espresso ink.
    1. Die-cut a Garden Green scalloped circle and then die cut a plain circle from Whisper White card stock. Stamp the birthday cake with Early Espresso on the Whisper White circle and color in with a Daffodil Delight marker. Adhere the circles together and then pop them up with dimensionals.
