Diamond Gatefold

It’s been a while that I was able to sit down and actually make a card and I finally got a chance to yesterday to make this gatefold card.

I used four different sets of framelits and thinlits to make this card – lol.  I started with a card base of Tranquil Tide cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″.

I cut the diamond shape in the centre using the Layering Square Framelits.  The snowflake is from the Season Layers Thinlits, the trees from the Card Front Builder Thinlits and the stars from the Detailed Santa Thinlits all from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  The Designer Series Paper is the Delightful Daisy DSP and the sentiment is from Santa’s Sleigh.

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!

Tres Chic Beautiful You!

Tres Chic!  That’s the way I would describe this Beautiful You card.  So stylish in her Navy dress.  For this card, I used the paper piecing technique.

The card base is Night of Navy card at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  On the Whisper White layer cut 4″ x 5 1/4″ I added a strip of the Floral Boutique DSP cut 2″ x 5″.

I stamped the lady image using Basic Black Archival ink on a piece of Whisper White cut using the square Stitched Shapes Framelits  (measures at 2 1/8″x 2 1/8″).   For the paper piecing, stamp the image again on a scrap piece of the DSP and fussy cut the dress and hat and adhere it to the stamped image.

Adhere it to a piece of Night of Navy cut with the Layering Squares Framelits (measures 2 5/8″ x 2 5/8″) and then pop it onto the card using dimensionals.  Complete the card with the sentiment stamped using Night of Navy classic ink.

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamp Set:  Beautiful You
  • Paper:  Night of Navy, Whisper White, Floral Boutique DSP

Love & Affection and Layering Squares Framelits

In just two more days the new catalogue will be launched and these fabulous new items will be available to order.

The Layering Squares Framelits have 19 square framelits – 10 scallop squares and 9 square edges which all nest to form great combinations of layering.  The largest scallop square measures 3″ x 3″ and the smallest is 3/4″ x 3/4″.  The largest square edge measures 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″ to 1″ x 1″.

There is also a great combination of new textured impressions embossing folders called Floral Affection (you get two folders) that pairs well with the Love & Affection stamp set.

In today’s card I married the outgoing Blackberry Bliss In Color card stock, ink and ribbon with these three new products and I just love the crispness of the card.  There is a scallop framelit that would have provided a smaller frame for the first layer, but I used the one size larger to give it more definition.

Love and AffectionfvThe countdown is on for only for the launch of the new catalogue but also the last day to purchase your Wish List items from the current catalogue.  After midnight tomorrow, they will no longer be available so don’t hesitate and be sure to pick up your favourites before they go.
