Cheerful Tags holiday card

Here is one of my Holiday Cards for the 2014 Season. I love these colors so soft and serene and then a pop of red to remind you it's Christmas.

Merry Merry

I love this set Cheerful Tags, its small and simple. I layered some strips of All is Calm designer washi tape over my cascade of snowflakes. The snowflakes are stamped in smoky slate and soft sky classic ink. I added bling with the Frosted sequins and basic rhinestones that I colored with my Coastal Cabana blendabilities markers. You could just as easily use a sharpie to color them, either way the effect is fun. I punched the tag with the new Note Tag punch, stapled a piece of real red 1/4" cotton ribbon and then tied some cherry cobbler bakers twine around the red ribbon. I stamped the snowflake in soft sky ink on the soft sky card stock, gives a watermark effect.

For the layout I used a smoky slate base layered a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of soft sky on top of it. The top layer is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of whisper white, I cut in 1-1/4" on the bottom left and angled it up to the top left corner. Last I tucked a 1-1/2" x 3-1/4" strip of All Is Calm designer paper behind the white.

Bloom for You stamp set

Bloom for You, Park Lane dsp, Stampin' Up!
This stamp is a single wood stamp with a matching punch, LOVE that! It is called Bloom for You and the punch is Fun Flower.
To make this card I stamped the images onto the white card stock in Daffodil Delight and then in Calypso Coral. I actually then trimmed off the white about an inch and around the coral flower leaving the entire flower attached. I then stamped and punched a second coral flower and attached it with a dimensional. I added the Park Lane dsp print to a Daffodil Delight card base and popped up the white onto the base as well.
On the top left I used Washi tape, kraft stickers and used the Little Pieces embosslit die for the rest.
This card was so much fun to make. I will be featuring this card and 4 more at this month's stamp a stack. Be sure to sign up soon.

You Make Me Happy!

Stampin' Up!, banner punch, happy watercolor stamp set, frsh prints dsp

Hello! It's been a while since I posted. I am glad to be back. I am posting a card I made for my stamp club recently, it features the Banner punch and Decorative Dots embossing folders both FREE during sale-a-bration.
We dry embossed the dots onto the Core'dinations card stock in real red. We could have sanded this down to create a distressed look but I just wanted the look of the textured card stock on this card. I was lucky enough to find that card stock on the SU! clearance rack, woo hoo! Right now I think they still have gumball green available at a great discount.
The banners were punched out of the Fresh Prints designer series paper stack (132996, $6.95, 48 sheets), found in the Celebrate the Every Day catalog. Its beautiful paper. Each sheet measures 4-1/2 x 6-1/2.

stamp set: Happy Watercolor (celebrate the everyday, p 22)
ink: basic clack
paper: real red core'dinations card stock, whisper white and crumb cake card stock; Fresh Prints DSP stack
accessories: basic rhinestoones, silver 1/8" ribbon, itty bitty punch pack flower punch and chalk talk framelits

Stampin' Up! Perfect Pennants, Hardwood, Sweet Sorbet

I borrowed this layout from a pinterest card done by Michele Last and a little bit of freshly made sketch #119.

stamp set: Perfect Pennants and Hardwood
ink: basic black
paper: pistachio pudding, crumb cake, basic black and whisper white card stock; Sweet Sorbet dsp (SAB)
accessories: chalk talk framelits, decorative dots embossing folder (SAB), Petite Petals punch, Itty Bitty shapes flower punch, black narrow grossgrain ribbon and basic rhinestones

These cards were both fun and easy. Hope to see you at a class soon!
