Wintery Greetings

On this card, I was again playing with the Embossing Paste although I didn't use the masks.  This time I just used a couple of the tools to layer some snow onto the Christmas Around the World designer series paper and then added some chunky glitter before it dried.

The sentiment comes from the Cheers to the Years stamp set and I die cut some trees from the Card Front Builder dies set.

Happy 15

This is a card I made for one of my nieces a little while ago using the Happy Celebrations stamp set.  I chose Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo for the card stock colors and added Smoky Slate and Basic Gray to the ink colors.

There is a strip of Gold Foil that is embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder and the numbers are die cut using the Large Numbers framelits dies.

Baptism Blessings

I really was excited to see the Inspired Events stamp set in the Catalog and Idea book when it came out.  There are lots of times when I need cards for baptism, confirmation, etc. and this set will come in very handy for that!

Inspired Events Photopolymer Stamp Set

I chose to use some Delightful Daisy designer series paper in my background as well as a Lace doily and some rhinestones for accent and texture.

Circled Birthday

When I die cut things I usually make extras for use in later projects and that is what I did with the Happy Birthday die cut awhile ago when I cut out some in Crumb Cake card stock.  The card I shared with you before needed more contrast in color between the die cut and the background so I tried a brighter background on this one.

The circle behind the die cut is made with the Circles framelits and Melon Mambo card stock.  I embossed it with the Perfect Polka Dots folder and then used glue dots to add the Happy Birthday.  To create the background, I took a piece of Fresh Fig card stock and stamped some images from the Cheers to the Years stamp set with Fresh Fig and Berry Burst ink.  You may notice that there are not full circle images in that stamp set, I kept the insides of the scribbled circle and circle with little lines to use for stamping when I put it together.

God Bless

I shared a card with you a little while ago using the "God Bless You" from the Trust God (retired) stamp set and today I have another one to share using brighter colors and some patterns.  

My base is Peekaboo Peach card stock and I added some Naturally Eclectic designer series paper along with some stamped images from the coordinating Oh So Eclectic stamp set.  There is a lace doily folded over behind the sentiment and I added an embossed layer of Berry Burst card stock in the background.

Baby Clouds

I finally tried out the embossing paste that is in the Catalog and Idea Book!  For some baby cards, I decided to use the cloud mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Mask set and emboss the clouds on some Soft Sky card stock.

I thought the Pretty Label Punch kind of looked like a cloud too so I chose to punch the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set out with it and pop it up over the top of a strip of Wood Textures designer series paper.

Merry Christmas Box

I had this little black box laying around for future use (it is a box from the Undefined line that Stampin' Up! had awhile back) and decided it was time to decorate it.

I began with some Quilted Christmas designer series paper and Pool Party card stock that I embossed with the Quilt Top Textured folder.  Then, I added some sequin trim from the Be Merry Kit and a punched sentiment from the Labels to Love stamp set.  I actually stamped the sentiment once in Garden Green and once in Real Red and cut out a couple pieces and popped them up to add some color and dimension. 

The Everyday Label Punch is used on the Garden Green card stock and I cut out the stamped layer so that the label could be layered.
