Timeless Tags Thank You Gift

Thank you gift made with Timeless Tags

Fun Thank You Gift

These fun little thank you gifts were for the people that placed an order with me last month.  I used the That’s the Tag Stamp set to highlight the cut out shape from the Timeless Tags Thinlits Die.  It was stamped on the lace paper from the Falling In Love Designer Series paper.  I ended up cutting three separate layers.

The first layer was the lace paper stamped with the oval dots image and cut with the butterfly die.  The second layer was an oval cut with the pink and tan bokeh paper and the third layer had the To: and From: sentiment stamped on the back.  I layered the three together with the Tombow glue lining up the hole at the top.

I finished it up with a bit of the Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon and one of the Falling In Love embellishment flowers.

Timeless Tags Stained Glass Paper Flower

Image of Timeless Tags Stained Glass effect flower

Stained Glass Technique

This card demonstrates that paper piecing can definitely have the feel of stained glass.  For this card, I cut the flower tag from the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies three times. One using basic black cardstock, and one each of the sugarplum glimmer paper and the mint macaron glimmer paper.

Using an oval cut with the Stitched Framelit dies as my base, I attached the black flower outline to the oval first and filled in the missing pieces with glimmer paper.   It is like putting the puzzle back together so to speak.

I hope you try out this technique. Let me know what you think in the comments section. I love hearing from you.

Nailed It Bundle

Nailed It Tools Card Image

Masculine Card

At times, it can seem like there are really limited options out there for making a masculine looking card.  Stampin’ UP has done a great job by creating this bundle of products to do just that.  Appropriately named the Nailed It Bundle, this stamp set and coordinating framelits make this task simple.

Pair it with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and you have a great looking card with minimal effort.  But no one else will guess that!

143074G

A Great Tip

Here is a great tip to get a good impression from the embossing folder.  Before running the silver foil paper piece through the Big Shot in the dynamic embossing folder, spritz the white paper backing with a little water using the Stampin’ Spritzer. It will soften the paper enough so it won’t crack.

Remember that the sandwich for the Big Shot requires one less clear plate as the folder is a lot thicker.

Life Looks Beautiful On You

Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack

This super simple card is using the fabulous Cupcakes & Carousels DSP paper stack.  I am loving the colors in this DSP.  It can be used in so many ways.

Today’s technique is simply to stamp the dancing girl image from the Beautiful You stamp set on very vanilla cardstock and the DSP.  I used early espresso ink for this.  I cut around the dress and hat with my paper snips on the DSP piece. Then you simply glue that piece on to the very vanilla piece to get the colorful dress image.  Then cut it out with the stitched shapes framelit and layer it with the Sale-a-bration glimmer paper in Bermuda Bay and another piece of the matching DSP cut in the square shape.  Pop them all up on dimensionals.

Carousel Birthday Wish

Image of Carousel Birthday Card

Color Palette

Featuring the new Occasions catalog Carousel Birthday stamp set from Stampin’ UP and the matching DSP paper stack, this handmade card makes for a special birthday. The colors in the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP stack inspired the color palette for the card.

Sentiments

The Carousel Birthday stamp set features two lovely old fashioned sentiments that go with the whimsical stamps in this set.  The inside of the card featured the second sentiment.

Image of Carousel Birthday Card Inside

The banners on the front of the card are hand cut.  The horse and the circus tent were fussy cut using paper snips and popped up on dimensionals. The ferris wheel image is stamp directly on the DSP using early espresso ink.

I hope you enjoy making today’s project.  If you currently do not have a demonstrator, I would love to earn your business.

Watercoloring Inside The Lines

Card features Inside the Lines DSP from Sale-a-bration

Inside the Lines DSP

The Inside the Lines DSP is the perfect complement to Stampin’ UP’s new watercolor pencils in the Occasions catalog.  You get 3 sheets each of 4 different designs in the pack of DSP.  It is only available through March 31st though as it is a Sale-a-bration item.  The small flower print is perfect for the smudgy flowers I created here.

Bright Palette

itldsp

This bright color palette makes for a cheerful birthday card.  The colors play out in the watercoloring on the sentiment as well as the watercoloring done on the embossed image at the bottom of the card.  It is really simple to color the embossing with the matching pencil and use a blender pen to smudge it.

The sentiment “Enjoy” was stamped in Stazon and watercolored with the pencils and blended with a blender pen.  The sentiment comes from the Everyday Tags stamp set.

To make this card, you need to make a mask using the largest circle from the framelits collection.  I just used a white piece of cardstock. Stamp the floral image around the circle on another piece of whisper white card stock.  Add the leaves in the bermuda bay color.  Stamp the dots in across the center in rich razzleberry.

Cut the hello sentiment from the Bermuda Bay glimmer paper.  Attach it to the center using the glue.

Celebrate with Mickey

Punch Art Mickey Symbol on Birthday Blast Background

Disney Days

Geez, there are days when I wish my kids were back at Disney World begging to ride the Dumbo ride.  It is truly hard to believe that my oldest kids (I have boy/girl twins) will be 25 years old in a few days.  When I saw the Birthday Blast stamp set, I knew that it would be a great backdrop for this card.  The large star stamp really makes the Mickey symbol pop off the card.
