Nature’s Wishes for GDP214

I love sketch challenges.  It is a perfect way for me to begin a card.  In other words, it makes my life much easier!  So today I am playing along with the Global Design Project #214 for a sketch challenge.

It is also the first time I have inked up the Nature’s Beauty stamp set.  Oh my!  I adore this stamp set!!  I hope you will give it another look.  It is on the last page of the Holiday Catalog.

 

 

Here is the sketch for the challenge.

 

 

That deer is so pretty.  He , or she, is so peaceful looking.  Exactly what I wish for this Holiday season.  I hated to add the sentiment and cover up part of the deer.  But after seeing the beautiful script of the sentiment, I fell in love with it as well.  The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas.  I have all of the “Itty Bitty” stamp sets.  This one is especially great with different fonts for the variety of Christmas wishes.

The background designer series paper is from Magnolia Lane DSP.  I thought the leaves paired beautifully with the deer and his woods.  To emphasize the “snow”, although you have to use your imagination there, I added the Shimmery Crystal Effects to the base of the trees and at the deer’s feet.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.

Sweet Christmas Wishes

I am back to holiday cards today.  I am combining the Cup of Christmas Bundle with the Let It Snow Designer Series Paper.  This paper is a favorite of mine.  I am sure you have noticed that as much as I have used it!

 

 

It is hard to say what is the star of this card. I love the designer series paper.  I have used three different patterns of the Let It Snow DSP.  For the mug, I stamped on the DSP then used the matching die to cut it out.

The glitter on the sentiment of the mug is added to by Shimmery Crystal Effects.  I also added just a bit of the White Snowball Accents Puff Paint along the rim of the cup.  I was very light handed with it in that I didn’t want too much “foam”.  I have not played with puff paint in quite a while.  It is so fun.

The candy cane is cut using the matching dies.  It is two pieces.  There is a solid white layer and then the striped red layer.  I attached the two and placed them under the cup.  Just for some cuteness i added a bow to the candy cane.

I hope you will give these two neat products a try – the Shimmery Crystal Effects and the Snowball Accents Puff Paint.  They are perfect for hot chocolate!

Thanks for stopping by today, please return tomorrow.

Christmas Rose

The Christmas Rose products will be available for customer orders beginning on November 1st.  As will the new Paper Trimmer.  I thought I would share a project with the Christmas Rose stamp set.  This is so pretty and would work for other than Christmas.  The stamp set has two cases.  There is the single stamp, which is what I used today, in Red Rubber.  The second case holds several stamps and they are in photopolymer.  They can be used to add color to the large stamp I have used.  I chose to color mine with Stampin’ Blends instead.

 

 

I stamped the large image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it using a variety of the Stampin’ Blends.  I colored the roses with Poppy Parade and used that card stock as the base and layer of the card.  The Designer Series Paper you see is from the Christmastime Is Here DSP.  I wanted a sort of subtle background for the rose.  This paper reminds me of old fashioned wallpaper.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • base is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2
  • White is 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • DSP is 5 1/4 X 4
  • Poppy Parade is 4 3/4 X 3 3/4
  • White is 4 5/8 X 3 5/8

So Many Stars

I played with two gorgeous products to create today’s card.  Actually there were three products.  I began with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Then I paired it with the So Many Stars Bundle.  The third piece was the Copper Foil.  The final product is a card that simply shines.

 

Stampin' Up!, Brightly Gleaming, So Many Stars, Itty Bitty Birthday, Copper Foil, Jackie Beers

 

Actually the shine was almost too much for the camera!  The stars on the right are die cut with the Copper Foil.  And as a bonus, I have all of the open stars leftover.  So I have plenty to add to other upcoming projects since I made a dozen of this card!

The DSP is the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.  It has the copper running through it as well.  I backed the DSP with Very Vanilla card stock and used a die from the Merry Christmas Dies to cut out the sentiment.  It is just fine standing alone with that vanilla backing to ground it.  The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.

Elfie for Pals October Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “My Favorite Season”  – showcasing our favorite stamps and supplies for our holiday project.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My Favorite Season is Christmas.  It has been since I was a child and maybe even increased since then.  I even collect Santa Claus anythings!  My biggest difficulty was choosing between two stamp sets.  I went with #Elfie because of the versatility of the set.

 

Stampin' Up!, Elfie, Jackie Beers

 

I made the card and added a matching gift tag as an extra.  I love all of the stamps in the #Elfie Stamp Set.  They are just adorable.  Here is a view of just the card alone.

 

Stampin' Up!, Elfie, Jackie Beers

 

I used the Toile Tiding Designer Series Paper as my backdrop.  I stamped the Elf in Memento Tuxedo Ink an colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

I always like to add ribbon but in this instance it just did not seem quite enough.  I tried a couple of things and then decided to add a few of the little gift boxes.  I stamped and colored them the same way.  They are fussy cut, but are very simple to do.

While I was adding the gifts to the card, I thought the gift tag required one as well.  The gift tag is punched using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  I punched both pieces at the same time.  To give the border across the top, I made the Vanilla part 1/8″ shorter.  I used temporary adhesive with the two pieces flush at the bottom for punching.  After punching them, I slid the Vanilla up to the appropriate place of the layering.  The hole is still lined up, but just a bit low on the front, and plenty large enough to run the Curly Red Ribbon through.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I greatly appreciate it and hope you like my #Elfie projects.  I have the measurements listed below the Pals Blog Line-Up.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 13th when we showcase projects with layers of DSP and embellishments for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun!

Plaid Christmas

Saturday was World Card Making Day.  I have some pictures to share with you from my craft day with some of my Stamp Club members.  But Stampin’ Up! is doing this week as Send A Card Week!  I hope you will join in and pleae let me know how many cards you send out this week.  You can bring a smile to someone’s face by sharing one of your creations with them.

I am sharing one of the cards I made for WCMD.  It is all about Christmas and Plaid!

 

 

I adore the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper!  I have used it several times.  Today I paired it with the Perfect Plaid Bundle.  The bundle includes the stamp set and the tree punch.  One of the Ladies in my club immediately said the tree layer looks like an ornament.  How pretty would that be to place two of these back to back with a ribbon in between?  I love it!!

The circles are backed with the Copper Foil.  In case you have not seen the Wrapped In Plaid DSP, it has plaid with copper running through it on one side and then a non-copper side.  The reindeer on the strip down the center is one of the opposite sides.

To finish the tree, I added the Star Designer Elements.  They are a copper look and have great definition to them.  I wasn’t sure how to finish the Merry Christmas layer, so I added one of the stars there as well.

Measurements:

  • 5 1/2 X 8 1/2
  • 5 1/4 X 4
  • 5 1/4 X 2 1/4
  • 5 1/4 X 2

 

Thank you for stopping by today!  Remember to make a comment this week and let me know if you send out any cards to celebrate Send A Card Week!!  And here are a couple of pictures from WCMD with a few of my Stamp Club Ladies!  A fun time was had !! 🙂
