Peaceful Boughs for the Retro Challenge & #FMS559

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by two challenges.  Please click on the hyperlinks below to visit the blog challenges and enjoy the inspiration, then go have some fun & make a card :)

This week the Retro Rubber Challenge #194 is challenging us to use 90's Colours, I chose, Pretty Peacock (dark teal), Sweet Sorbet (red), Cajun Craze (dark terracotta), Kraft (brown).  We have a Blue Spruce in our front yard and I love the contrast of the blue needles and the reddish brown cones.

Jen T's Sketch Challenge over @ Freshly Made Sketches inspired the design of my card, I used the pinecones to capture the three circles, and made the 'message' the star.  Do you ever use the 'message' on the front of your card and add the 'greeting sentiment' to the inside?  I love this message for a Christmas card and it fits great in the big circle.   



 

Assembly & Trix,

*  Die cut the circle with the Stylish Shapes Die, #159183 from a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic White cardstock.  

***Trix, use the Stamparatus, #146276 to line up the circle layer with the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Thick Basic White card base, remove the circle layer and stamp using the Retired Peaceful Boughs stamp set, #150541 - from the June 2020 to May 2021 Annual Catalogue - using Sweet Sorbet ink.

*  Die cut the boughs and pinecones from the retired coordinating Beautiful Boughs Dies, #150661 from Cajun Craze cardstock, #119684 & Kraft Paper, #156325 and retired Pretty Peacock cardstock.  ***Trix, use Adhesive Sheets, #152334 to die cut the Cajun Craze part of the pinecone.

*  Layer the boughs and pinecones as you wish.  ***Trix, use a combo of adhesives to build dimension, glue, glue dots and dimensionals.  Embellish with Crumb Cake Baker's Twine, #155475  

**  A couple of other sets from the July to December 2022 Mini Catalogue that I think would work beautifully with this sketch are, Leaves Of Holly Bundle, #159608 - or - Decorated With Happiness Bundle, #159711  **

Brightest Glow Bundle for #CASColours&Sketches

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the Sketch Challenge over @ CAS Colours & Sketches.  Please click the hyperlink or the image below to visit their blog and enjoy the inspiration.

I love creating Clean And Simple cards at Christmas, so I reached for my favourite Christmas red, Cherry Cobbler, added a bit o' bling, and just the let red and white sing for this fun sketch.   :)




Assembly & Trix,

*  Use the fun swirl & snowflake dies from the Labels Aglow Dies, #159551 to cut out the perfect little flurry on a layer of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  ***Trix, the layer is a 16th of an inch, yes just a smidge smaller, than the Cherry Cobbler 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base.  I want the card to look as Clean And Simple as possible and appear to be a single layer card.  

*  Adhere a piece of White Glimmer Paper, #159578 to the Cherry Cobbler layer so the glimmer, ( bit o' bling) peeks through.  ***Trix, lightly dab glue on the Cherry Cobbler layer around the die cut shapes and allow to dry for a moment before attaching the Glimmer Paper.  This helps the glue from seeping through the holes and holds the two layers tightly together around all the little holes.  

*  Stamp and emboss the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set, #159542 with White Embossing Powder, #155554.  Then attach the layer to the card base with glue. 

**  I tried my best to capture the sparkle of this awesome Glimmer Paper, but sadly the photo just doesn't do it justice.

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the Pink Challenge over @ Sisterhood Of Snarky Stampers  & Ann's Sketch Challenge over @ the Paper Players.  Please click on the hyperlinks or the blog post images below to visit their blogs.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so I had to use a big pink ribbon as the 'any shape' image on my Pink card!  If you know of someone affected by Breast Cancer, show them your support, send them a card! :)




Assembly & Trix,

*  Emboss a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Melon Mambo cardstock with the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder, #157980, then adhere it to the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Melon Mambo card base with glue.  ***Trix, emboss the top and bottom of the Melon Mambo layer and don't worry about the pattern overlapping, relax, its a forgiving pattern and you'll cover it with the band of Basic White.

*  Use the Simply Scored® Scoring Tool, #122334 to score the top and bottom of the 2 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Basic White cardstock.   

*  Stamp the bathing suits from the Sunny Splash Stamp Set, #158784 with Melon Mambo & Polished Pink Ink, then adhere to the card with glue.

*  Stamp the fabulous sentiment of support from Good Feelings Stamp Set, #158737 with Melon Mambo ink on a 2 1/2 x 3 1/8 piece of Basic White cardstock and adhere with dimensionals.

***Trix, cut a piece of Polished Pink  3/8" Open Weave Ribbon, #155714 lengthwise and tie a bow.  Tie a second bow around the first with the White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, #151326 then adhere with a glue dot.  Embellish with Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels, #158987

Brightest Glow for #jai626

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's all white card is inspired by the Sketch Challenge over @ Just Add Ink Challenge.  Please click the hyperlink or the image below to visit their blog and enjoy the inspiration.

I love layers, but I struggle with layering coloured patterns so I decided an all white, embossed card might be a good challenge for me.   The one embossing folder is retired, but I chose it becasue the embossed pattern was smaller than the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder.  Is that the rule when mixing patterns, vary size?  I'd love to learn the design rules about mixing pattern, so please pass along your advice in the comments below. 




Assembly & Trix,

*  Emboss a 2 1/4 x 4 1/8 piece of Basic White cardstock with the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder, #155433 and adhere it to a 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 piece of Basic White Cardstock.

*  Emboss and die cut a square from the Stylish Shapes Dies, #159183 then adhere with glue.  The retired embossing folder I used is called Winter Snow, #153577.  **The Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder, #156392 might be very lovely too :)  

*  Create the deer using the Deer Builder Punch, #156390 with Gold Foil Sheets, #132622 and adhere with dimensionals. 

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set, #159542 and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder, #155555.  Die cut with the Stylish Shapes Dies.  Adhere with dimensionals.  ***Trix, to minimize bulk on the card, only add dimensionals to the left side and bottom of the circle, the top right side of the circle will lay over the square.

*  Tie a piece of Simply Elegant Trim, #155766 to the card layer.  ***Trix, add a strip of Stampin' Seal to the back of the card layer to hold the gold twine in place, tie a bow on the front adding a glue dot to hold the bow in place.  

*  Adhere the card layer to the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base with dimensionals.  Embellish with Festive Pearls, #159963

Season Of Chic Bundle for CAS Colours & sketches

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the #492 Colour Challenge over @ CAS Colours & Sketches    Use Pale Papaya, Sahara Sand & Pacific Point.  What a fun colour combo eh!  The brightness of the Pacific Point is beautiful with the Autumn feel of Pale Papaya & Sahara Sand together.  Please click on the hyperlink to visit their blog and enjoy the inspiration.




Assembly & Trix

*  Stamp the leaves from the Season of Chic stamp set, 158810 onto a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Sahara Sand cardstock.  ***Trix, use sponge daubers to apply ink to the stamp, to vary the colour intensity.

*  Stamp the leaves again on a scrap piece of Basic White, using the same method, then die cut out using the Chic Dies, #158815

*  Emboss the Sahara Sand Layer with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, before adhering it to a piece of Pacific Point cardstock a smidge bigger.  Adhere both to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Sahara Sand card base.

*  Adhere the die cut leaves to the Sahara Sand layer, ***Trix, dab on a tiny bit of glue to the wider parts of the leaves then allow it to dry for a few moments before adhering it to the layer - this helps the glue set so it doesn't seep out. 

*  Apply ink to the 'swoosh'  with sponge daubers and stamp on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock then stamp the sentiment with Pacific Point ink.  Fussy cut out and adhere with dimensionls

Brightest Glow & Painted Christmas for the Fusion Challenge

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the sketch over @ Fusion Challenge.  Please click the hyperlink or the image below to visit their blog.

I've been working on simple cards for Christmas with the Painted Christmas DSP & the Brightest Glow stamp set.  My goal is a stack of cards ready to go :)  This fun sketch inspired me to do a clean & simple card, use up my leftover strips of dsp and keep it quick to create by using the Kraft Notecards, #159247.  A fabulous quick and easy way to create a stack of cards quickly, and with a gift box to boot,  if you'd like to create a gift box of cards as a present.



Assembly & Trix

* Adhere a 1 1/4 x 5 piece of Painted Christmas DSP, #156292 to a piece of Soft Succulent cardstock a smidge bigger.

*  Flag the end of a 3 inch piece of Natural Finish 7/8 Ribbon, #159051 with Paper Snips, #103579.   ***Trix, adhere Stampin' Seal to the back of the Soft Succulent strip and loop the ribbon over it, adhere with a couple of glue dots.  Then adhere both to the card base with glue. 

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set, #159542 with Soft Succulent ink and die cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies, #159183.  Adhere to the card base with 2 dimensionals, one on either side of the ribbon.

Lights Aglow Suite for #gdp365

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the colour challenge over @ Global Design Project.  Use Soft Succulent, Sweet Sorbet & Petal Pink, neat combo eh!  Please click on the hyperlink to visit their blog.

The time of year has inspired this Book Fold card, every year round about now, my Grandma would haul out all her recipe books and begin to plan her Christmas baking and candy making.  She created trays of goodies for friends, and of course our family dinner.  Her Rum Balls and Shortbread we're the best I've ever had. 




Assembly & Trix,

*  Begin with a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Thick Basic White cardstock & score at 5 1/2 & 6 3/4, to create a 1 1/4 section.  Burnish the fold lines.  

***Trix, create the spine of the book by adhering the front 1 1/4 section to the back of the card with Stampin' Seal.  This creates a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 flap, ***see the pic below.  Then adhere a 1 x 4 piece of Lights Aglow Specialty 6x6 DSP, #159535. 

*  On a piece of 4 x 4 Basic White cardstock, stamp the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set, #159542 with Soft Succulent ink and the candy from the Nothings Better Than stamp set, #158295 with Memento Black ink.  Colour with Sweet Sorbet & Petal Pink Stampin' Blends Markers.

*  Die cut the circle with the Labels Aglow Dies, #159551.  Adhere to a piece of soft Succulent cardstock a smidge smaller,  ***Trix, the idea is to have the colour peeking through the holes of the die cut only, without any Soft Succulent cardstock showing on the edges.  Embellish with 2021 - 2023 In Color™ Jewels.

Painted Chistmas DSP for #tgifc390

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the fabulous sketch challenge @tgifc this week.   Please click the hyperlink to visit their blog and enjoy the inspiration!

Today's card is also the third of three simple Christmas cards using the Painted Christmas DSP.  Each card uses a piece of DSP with either a circle or square shape with the sentiment.  If you like creating multiple, quick & simple Christmas cards like I do then please enjoy the previous two posts *here  & *here  :)




Assembly & Trix

*  Emboss a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 piece of Basic White cardstock with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder, #158804 and adhere to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Evening Evergreen card base.

*  Adhere a 3 1/8 x 3 3/8 piece of Painted Christmas DSP, #156292 to a 3 1/4 x 3 7/16 piece of Real Red cardstock.  ***Trix, the measurement of the Real Red cardstock may seem a bit odd, but that's b/c the dsp is not centered on the cardstock, instead, leave a border of Real Red around 3 sides only, a subtle change that adds a bit of interest :)   

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set, # 159542 and die cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies, #159183, an awesome little set that creates circles, squares & banners of different sizes.  ***Click here to shop this die set as a 'Bundle' with the Mini Stamp Cut & Emboss Machine, #160881

*  Adhere Real Red 3/8 Sheer Ribbon, #153535 - currently on the Clearance Rack for $3.80, woohoo! - to the back of the circle before adhering the circle with dimensionals.  Embellish with Pearl Basic Jewels, #144219

Brightest Glow for #FMS557

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was inspired by Judy's fun sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  Please click on the hyperlink to visit their blog.  When I saw the square at the bottom I knew I needed to use a retired favourite die set called Beautiful Boughs Dies, a perfect fit with the sentiment from the current Brightest Glow Stamp Set, #159542




Assembly & Trix

*  Adhere a 4 1/4 x 4 piece of Painted Christmas DSP, #156292 to a  5 1/2 x 4 1/4 Soft Sea Foam card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

*  Stamp the sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat set with Gold Embossing Powder, #155555 and die cut.

***Trix, adhere a couple of die cut boughs with glue,  before adhering the embossed label with dimensionals.  Leave one bough without glue so it floats off the card a bit, then add an extra bough overlapping the label, both add a bit of dimension.  

*  Embellish with Festive Pearls, #159963 & ***Trix, cut a piece of Real Red organdy ribbon lengthwise, tie a bow and adhere with a glue dot for texture.

Holiday Tag Team for the Retro Challenge

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's simple card was inspired by the Retro #193 Anything Goes Challenge.  This is the perfect challenge for a Christmas card.  It's time to haul out my old favourite Christmas stamps, mix the old with the new and begin the Christmas card season.  Please click on the hyperlink to visit the Retro Rubber Challenge #193 

The design layout is Amy's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #556 a perfect layout if you like to make multiple quick and simple Christmas cards like I do :)  

The 2004 wood stamp set called Holiday Tag Team,  matches perfectly with the sprays of pine cones on the Painted Christmas DSP pack, #156292 I think.  Yay for Stampin' Up!® coordination!  There were 14 little wood stamps in this terrific old set.



  

Assembly & Trix,

*  Adhere a piece of DSP to a Kraft Note Card, #159247 a smidge smaller.  

*  Emboss a 1 1/4 piece of Evening Evergreen with the Wintery 3D Embossing Folder, #155433 and adhere with glue.

*  Stamp the pine cones with Early Espresso ink and colour with Crumb Cake & Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends Markers.  Die cut a circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies, #159183 and adhere with dimensionals. 

***Trix, stamp the sentiment with Soft Succulent ink, fussy cut out and adhere with dimensionals.  I love fussy cutting sentiments b/c you can choose just the words you need.

*  Embellish with Rustic Metallic Dots, #159082.
