Card: Star of Wonder Book Binding Style

Hello!

We made this card at my recent Coffee & Cards event.  What a fun time we had!

This card is my interpretation of a card design I received from a fellow Demonstrator via email.

It turns out I was a little "off" but it's ok!  I love how mine came out and that's all that matters :)   It's actually more fun to put your own "spin" on things anyway!  Right?

If you would like to create your own interpretation of this card, I have the shopping/supply list posted for you below!

Shop with me this weekend - December 16-18, 2016 - enter the Hostess Code RDNT29AD (at check-out), and receive my latest 4-card tutorial, Free, in your in-box, PLUS Double Sand Dollars Rewards, when your order reaches $50 or more (before s/h/tx)!  

Happy Stamping!

Card: Stampin' Up! Distressed Metal Seasonal Bells Version 2

Hello!
Today I am sharing Version 2 of yesterday's card, featuring the Distressed Metal Technique

I turned it on it's side and changed my primary color to Cherry Cobbler.  I also embossed my bells with Silver EP instead of the Copper.

Which one do you prefer?

Card: Stampin' Up! Seasonal Bells Are Ringing


Hello!

Today I am sharing a card using the Distressed Metal Technique
I was inspired by a card shared by a fellow Demonstrator.  She shared her card on our private Facebook group and I just changed it up a little bit.  

I used Copper Embossing Powder on my background piece as well as on my Garden Green bells.  I think my card came out pretty cool.  


Stay tuned because I'll be back tomorrow with another version I'm working on: using Cherry Cobbler!

Card: Stampin' Up! Delicate Ornaments Christmas Card

Hello!

Today I'm sharing a quick Christmas card with you featuring the Delicate Ornaments Framelits. They really shine with a Rhinestone in the center and topped by a gold foil bow!

To get more mileage from your Silver Foil Paper, die-cut your ornaments from the mat piece!  It will be hidden under the embossed white panel and no one will ever know :)



I heat embossed my Merry Christmas with Silver EP to finish it off.

Card: Stampin' Up! Wonderful Year Watercolor


Hello!

Yesterday, I posted a Birthday card created with the Wonderful Year stamp set (see it here).  

While I had the supplies out on my desk, I played around with it using a Watercolor Wash background.  


My greeting is embossed over the watercolor wash with White Embossing Powder.  I also inked my die-cut, and heat embossed it, to give it some extra stability and shine!

As I mentioned yesterday, because our Note Cards come with coordinating envelopes - you get 20 cards & envelopes in each package - I was able to dress-up a coordinating envelope as well!  

We created this at my recent Coffee & Cards event and had a lot of fun discovering how differently each background turned out.  If you would like to create this card yourself, I have posted my supply list below.

Happy Stamping!

Card: Stampin' Up! Wonderful Year Birthday


Hello!

I recently posted this card highlighting the Wonderful Year stamp set.  

Most definitely a Mary's Must Have stamp set!




I wanted to try to stretch my stamps beyond Christmas cards and I thought this message would make a fabulous Birthday Card!  

I used the same design as my Christmas version but changed the colors and added some punched balloons with my Balloon Bouquet punch.  

Because our Note Cards come with coordinating envelopes - you get 20 cards & envelopes in each package - I was able to dress-up a coordinating envelope as well!  

What do you think?
I gave it to my hubby for his Birthday :)

Card: Cookie Cutter Birthday


Hello!

Today is my GrandDaughter's 12th Birthday and this is her Birthday Card.

You know how much I love the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle ;)


I really think it is a "must have" for every stamp collection!
I even used this image in my One Sheet Wonder* card in yesterday's post!  
*I have more One Wheet Wonder cards coming up so stay tuned!

I used the "Cold Hands" from the stamp set and found an older stamp, for the inside, that says "Warmest Wishes on your Birthday" (Blooming with Kindness (retired)).  I always appreciate being able to pair my retired stamp sets with my current ones!

I hope my card brings a smile to her face!
I always smile when I use this stamp set :)

Card: Cookie Cutter Friends One Sheet Wonder

Hello!

If you don't know, Cookie Cutter Christmas is one of my favorite bundles from the Holiday Catalog!

Hmmm, I say that about a lot of the Holiday Catalog products don't I?
But it is!  I love all of the characters in this set!

I just love coloring in these cuties with different color outfits :)  Adding the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the trim really makes them sparkle!

I have done a few videos on this layout.  It is a One Sheet Wonder card.  You can find videos here & here.

To create this card, I have posted the supply list below.

Happy Stamping!

Card: Sweet Sugar Plum & Fancy Frost For Christmas


Hello!

Today I've got another pretty card to share with you.

A few days ago, I shared this card, featuring the Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) paired with Cherry Cobbler. 

I wanted to use a non-traditional color but keep the same card design.  




I reached for Sweet Sugar Plum because that is the other ribbon color in the Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack (Holiday Catalog pg 37 or Here in my Online Store)!  I Love this ribbon!  It ties so nicely and has just the right amount of shine to it!  Not only that, you can separate the strands and use them in other ways!  I'll be showing you some tips for that later!

What do you think of this card in Sweet Sugarplum?
I think it is a very pretty color for a winter card... but I would love to hear what you think!

Don't forget, the Fancy Frost DSP is currently on Sale! 
Save 30% during our Online Extravaganza Sale!
Find it on page 37 of the Holiday Catalog and in my Online Store Here!

I hope you like this second version of my card as much as I do!
To create this card, I have posted the supply list below.
