More Half Full

This time I have a couple cards to share with you, both in the same theme and with the same preview stamp set called Half Full.  I randomly stamped the images and colored them in, making my own designer series paper with the stamp set.  

On the one on the left, I added some Wood Textures designer series paper and a corrugated element.  On the right, I added a little burlap ribbon.  Each one has some enamel dots as well.

Sheet Music Note Set

I was really happy to see the addition of Acetate Card Boxes in the Holiday catalog.  They are perfect to use for gifts of cards (and of course other things too) and you can fit at least 5 standard cards and envelopes in each one.  This box contains 6 cards and envelopes so it depends on how many layers you are using on each card.

I wrapped the box with some Painted Autumn designer series paper and added some Venetian lace trim around it for decoration.

The cards in the box also used some Painted Autumn designer series paper along with the Treble Clef die cut from the Musical Instruments framelits.

Special Reason Sympathy

Another sympathy card to share with you again today, I have needed a few lately and like to have a variety on hand.  This one uses the Special Reason and Heartfelt Sympathy stamp sets and some of the Bundle of Love specialty paper.

I also used the Stitched shapes framelits and framed my flower images in the center of the card.

Flourishing Sympathy

The card I have to show you today doesn't use any sneak peek Holiday catalog items.  It is just a fairly simple sympathy card using the Better Together and Flourishing Phrases stamp sets. I have seen several used in a similar way on Pinterest and thought I would put one of my own together.

I chose Peekaboo Peach ink for the flourish in the background and stamped the image twice but only inked one time.  

To add a little texture, I added some enamel dots randomly and on part of the flourish image as well.

Painted Harvest

 There is a stamp set called Painted Harvest in the Holiday catalog (and it pairs with the Painted Autumn designer series paper).  I really like the water colored images and the sentiments in the set and used it on today's card. 

I started out stamping the flower with Sweet Sugarplum ink and then took the flower that is just a little bit smaller and stamped it over the top with Fresh Fig.  The center of the flowers are stamped with Crushed Curry ink.

I also added a little bit of Wood textures designer series paper and some Venetian lace trim behind the sentiment.

Improves with Age

The last sneak peek project for this week uses the Half Full stamp set which has some sentiment for Christmas as well as friendship, etc.  There are wine glasses and a wine bottle included in the images as well.  

I paired it with the Painted Autumn designer series paper and chose to use the Quilt top textured folder on the card base.

Be Merry

The Holiday catalog project I have to share with you today uses the Christmas around the world designer series paper pack along with the Every Good Wish stamp set and Stitched felt embellishments.  There are several Christmas themed designer series paper packs and there is another one that actually coordinates with the Stitched felt embellishments, but I decided to mix the collections up a bit on this card.

I stamped in Real Red and Night of Navy ink and chose those colors along with Whisper White for the card stock colors.
