Year of Cheer Box in a Card

It’s been a long two weeks since I’ve had a chance to share with you something new!  Today’s share is this sweet card that I made using the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper.  I just love that paper.

Becky Roberts is the original designer of this card and I am looking forward to making many more with the different designer papers we have.

The card base is Whisper White with the Year of Cheer DSP panel.  The box also uses the Year of Cheer DSP and the box top made with the Gold Foil.  The sentiment is from the Merry Little Labels Bundle which has the co-ordinating punch.  It is stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder and popped onto the card with Stampin’ dimensionals.

The gold strip is from the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi tape and the box top is finished with one of the gold Mini Gift Bows.  There are 45 bows in the package, gold, silver and Berry Burst for only $8.  These are in the Annual Catalogue on page 197 and if you prefer the traditional Christmas colors, there is also the Season of Glitz Mini Gift Bows in the Holiday Catalogue on page 21.  There are green, red and white bows, also $8 for 45 bows.

All the supplies to make this card are available in my online store – ENTER MY STORE HERE.

Painted Harvest

Sunflowers are traditionally yellow and there have been some beautiful sunflowers in our local markets lately.  The color is so vibrant.  My card today is a departure from the traditional color and I love how it turned out.

I started with a piece of Old Olive card stock and cut it to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4′.  The DSP layer is from Merry Little Christmas and cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The image pieces are Old Olive cut 3″ x 3″, with the Whisper White cut 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″.

I stamped the flower using Sweet Sugarplum, Fresh Fig and Soft Suede for the centre, and the leaves using Old Olive classic ink.  The sentiment is Fresh Fig.

I wrapped three  three strips of 1/8″ Sheer Fresh Fig ribbon wrapped over the DSP and secured at the back with adhesive.  I then popped up the image piece with dimensionals over the front of the card.

Thankful Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my family and friends wherever you may reside!

I am very thankful for an early birthday present that I received yesterday that enabled me to make today’s card to share with you.

OMG, thank you to my DD, Alannah, who gifted me with the Large Letters framelits.  Of course, I just had to do a card using the eclipse technique that is so popular right now.

The card uses the Blooms and Wishes stamp set and the color palette is Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Currey and Old Olive.  The card base Cajun Craze.  The focal panel is Whisper White cut 3 3/4″ x 5″ and the mat of Old Olive is 1/8″ larger on all sides.

After stamping the flowers and leaves I stamped the sentiment from Daisy Delight in Cajun Craze classic ink and then cut out the letters with the Large Letters framelits.  The letters are raised with Stampin’ Up! foam tape.

Thank you for stopping by on this beautiful Thanksgiving Day here in Metro Vancouver and happy stamping!

Carols of Christmas Shaker Card

Happy World Card Making Day to all crafters!

Here’s a card that we recently made at one of my Christmas card classes.

It started out with Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper but ended up with the Silver glimmer paper as the contrast with the white is more defined and after the image was stamped with Versamark and embossed with Silver embossing powder, it made “co-ordinated” much better with the Silver glimmer paper.

Enjoy your World Card Making Day events!   Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Spooky Cat

Spooky Cat is a delightful stamp set in the Holiday Catalogue with a matching cat punch in the bundle.  I couldn’t resist this bundle and absolutely love the punch.

There is also a matching designer series paper called Spooky Night with many cute images for Hallowe’en.

The card base is Cajun Craze with a Basic Black mat and a layer of the DSP.  I also cut a strip of the DSP and used across the centre of the card.

I punched the cat out of another piece of the DSP and popped it onto a piece of Cajun Craze that had been embossed with a retired polka dot embossing folder.  This was adhered to a Whisper White circle and then onto a Basic Black circle.  The Cajun Craze and Whisper White circles were cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits and the Basic Black circle was cut out with the Stitched Shape Framelits.  I finished it off with a rhinestone collar for the kitty.
