Santa’s Sleigh

Santa’s Sleigh is a carry over stamp set from last year’s Holiday catalogue and I was so happy that it is available as I really didn’t get a chance to make too many cards with it last year but hope to do so this year.

We made this card at my Christmas in August class this past weekend using the set and I love how it turned out with the use of Tranquil Tide and the Delightful Daisy DSP.

We used the Basket Weave technique for the detailed side fold.  The reindeer were cut using the Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.  As I turned the glimmer paper face down on the cutting pad, they are facing left rather than to the left.

We  inked up the wreath stamp with Versamark and then with Tranquil Tide and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  As long as you use your Versamark with the color you wish to have embossed, there is no need to purchase the colored embossing powder.  The Versamark creates the stickiness to allow the embossing and simply use clear embossing powder to heat set.  They were then cut out with the co-ordinating thinlits.

The trees and bows were all cut out with the co-ordinating framelits from the Santa Sleigh’s Thinlits  Finally we created some snow on a strip of Whisper White card stock and used the Fine Tip Glue pen to add some adhesive and then sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds.

Wood Words Diagonal Card

Do you ever see a card that you like and instantly think of the stamp set you want to use to make it?   Wood Words came to mind when I saw a card on Pinterest (Lisa C) that I wanted to make and here’s the result.

You know that I just love black and white and this was my go to color combo to try this card.  The card base is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  I cut another piece of Black card stock 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ to cut out the a section to form the diagonal cut.

I first rubbed the Embossing Buddy over the area that I was going to stamp .  I next used the floral stamp from Wood Words and stamped with White Craft ink across the opening and then sprinkled some White embossing powder over the stamped images and heat embossed it.  The sentiment is stamped with White Craft ink and embossed with White Embossing powder.  I positioned the corners onto the front and cut some strips of Powder Pink card stock to provide the pink borders.

I next added the foam strips around the triangle pieces and adhered to the front of the card.  I completed the card with a triple bow using the Pink Pirouette seam binding ribbon.

You can purchase the supplies to make this card at my online store HERE.

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamps:  Wood Words
  • Paper:  Basic Black, Powder Pink
  • Ink:  White Craft
  • Accessories:  White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Pink Pirouette Seam Binding, Foam Strips

Beautiful You in Pop of Pink

Beautiful You in a Pop of Pink!   I used the retired Pop of Pink Specialty Designers Series Paper for this card as I love the contrast of Melon Mambo with the Black.

I used the brush stamp from Beautiful You for the background in Melon Mambo and stamped her image with Black Archival ink.  The focal image is cut with the Layering Oval framelits and popped up on a Melon Mambo oval and finally on a black Stitched Shapes framelit.

Bright Wishes

Two things that I have been wanting to do but hadn’t found the time but made an effort today to do both and finally did it.

I wanted to make a card using the Bright Wishes stamp set and also make a card using the  Polished Stone technique, one of my all time favourite techniques.  I did both and this is the result!


I started with the focal panel first cutting the Glossy White card stock to 3 3/4″ x 5″. I added some Wild Wasabi and Old Olive ink refill on a soaked cotton ball and dabbed it to the lower portion of the panel as I wanted to create a grassy image. I then soaked another cotton ball with alcohol and added Pool Party and Marina Mist ink refill and dabbed it on the upper portion of the panel to create the sky. I then added some Gold Mixative ink refill to a soaked cotton ball and lightly dabbed it on the panel randomly.

I inked up the image with Black Archival ink and stamped onto the panel and added the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous to the bottom of the panel. I then adhered it to a piece of 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ Black card stock and then onto the card base of Marina Mist cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.

Thanks for stopping by on another beautiful day and happy stamping!

Whole Lot of Lovely

I couldn’t resist this beautiful Whole Lot of Lovey Designer Series Paper pack when I saw the sheet with the black background and beautiful Tangerine Tango  flowers.  This is my share for today.

The paper just pops paired with Pool Party mats and the Tangerine Tango butterfly cut with the medium butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits.  I added some Enamel Glitter Dots to the butterfly.

The sentiment is from Beautiful Bouquet, a set that I haven’t fully used but anxious to make some cards with it.

Endless Thanks Masculine Card

Sometimes you need a quick CAS masculine card and this card was put together so fast.

I used Sahara Sand for the card base and the retired Scenic Scenery DSP pack.  It was such a great background pack and am very happy I still have some to make some quick cards.  I used the Banner Triple punch to layer the two banners and the Circle Layering framelits for the sentiment piece.  I stamped the sentiment with Black Archival ink.   So quick!

I pulled out the Scallop Topper punch and made this card with the Lemon Zest Bundle that comes with the Lemon Zest stamp set and Lemon Builder Punch.


This is such a delightful set with some very cute sentiments. We made some cards at my Open House and hadn’t used it since so it was time for another card.   The card base is Daffodil Delight, with Whisper White mat and the retired Fruit Stand DSP.

I stamped two lemons with Daffodil Delight classic ink on Whisper White card stock and two leaves with Pear Pizzazz classic ink on Whisper White card stock and punched them out with the Lemon Builder punch.  They are adhered to the side panel with Tombow liquid glue and dimensionals.

You punch both sides of the card stock with the Scallop Topper punch and trim the ends to create this card.  I love the new 1/4″ Double-Stitched Daffodil Delight ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today – another beautiful sunny day – happy stamping!

Oh So Eclectic

The Naturally Eclectic Suite  on pages 132 – 133 of the Annual Catalogue is so pretty.  I love the colors that are shown from the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon – Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach, Berry and Emerald Envy to the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and the Naturally Eclictic Card Overlays!  Oh, and I haven’t mentioned the Naturally Eclectic DSP!

While the images are very bright, I went the opposite route for my card share today – subtle tones.

I chose Peekaboo Peach for the card base and one of the soft sheets of the DSP to build my card.  A panel of the DSP is layered with one last year’s doilies then a panel of Whisper White stamped with the petal image In Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach and Soft Sky.   I stamped off the Peach and Pear Pizzazz and used the Soft Sky at full strength as it is a very light color.  I then stamped the flower image using Berry Burst.   I used Soft Sky to stamp the background with one of the little flower centres available in the stamp set.

The stamped image is popped up with dimensionals and the sentiment is also popped up with dimensionals.   Thank you Kathleen for the layout!

Next on my list to do with the set is to cut a mask with the thinlit and use it with some of the embossing paste.  Looking forward to trying that!

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy stamping day!
