Stampin Up First Frost Wreath

There are so many lovely possibilites with the First Frost stamp set and dies. For this card, I decided to make a wreath as the focal point of my card.

I used night of navy and mint macaron cardstock as well as the Frosted Floral designer paper. This paper has a pearlized shimmer all over. It is stunning. So hard to catch it in a photo, though.

I used the large Stitched Circle Framelit in very vanilla as my "guide" and placed the foliage all around it.

The ink colors are night of navy, blackberry bliss and blushing bride.

IMG_5341

I placed a matching pearl, rhinestone or gem in the middle of each flower for a little more sparkle, than tied it with a night of navy gingham ribbon across the bottom.

Such a sweet card for a wedding, graduation, new job or birthday card.

Stampin Up Serene Garden Dove

I'm sharing a card that we made at Card Class recently. Its from the  Serene Garden stamp set. This is one of my favorites. I love that this set has a coordinating Framelit set that has both cutting and embossing dies included.

IMG_3536

Whisper white, coastal cabana and balmy blue are the cardstocks used as well as coastal cabana ink.

IMG_3537

As you can see, I used the embossing die on this card. I also used it a few posts back if you want to check it out again. I love the effect this gives. When using the new embossing dies, you'll need the new Big Shot embossing mats. I'll have the supplies listed below for you to see.

IMG_3541

I wrapped the card in the white polka dot tulle ribbon and added a coastal cabana glitter dot to the knot. I also added a few pearls to hightlight the small balmy blue flowers.

IMG_3540

I love using these two colors together. I also used the Itty Bitty Greetings set for the verse. This set is sure getting a lot of use! I love it.

Layering Alphabet in "Pinks"- Yay!

Pink is my absolute most favorite color, so I wanted to design a card made with the Layering Alphabet dies in various shades of pink.

I decided on a birthday card with the word "yay!" I had a lot of fun designing this card. It not only uses my favorite color, but it also has ribbons and sparkle too!

IMG_2667

The colors that I used on this card are lovely lipstick, melon mambo, flirty flamingo and petal pink, inks and cardstock. I also used basic black and whisper white cardstocks.

I love how it turned out!

IMG_2666

I cut each color of cardstock to a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece and then cut out the letters. I attached it to a basic black card measuring the same. To attach the Iridescent Sequins, I just dotted liquid multi purpose glue in the spots that I wanted to place the sequins. I then placed the sequins on top of the dollop of glue.

IMG_2662

The black satin ribbon is tied around the entire card, with a little white bakers twine bow tied on top and attached with a glue dot. I also used the mini black sequin trim to add some extra glimmer to the card.

You'll notice that the word "celebrate" is stamped on a cute little label. I die cut this with one of the dies in the new Stitched Label framelits set. The word, celebrate is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.

IMG_2663

And there you have it! Another fabulous greeting card, made with the Lined Alphabet stamp set and Layering Alphabet framelit bundle.

Be sure to check out the Layering Alphabet "how to" video, below.

Stampin' Up Cake Soiree Wedding Card

I'm sharing the gorgeous Cake Soiree stamp set and framelit bundle with you today. I am using this set for my next Card Class and I wanted to play around with it a little.

I came up with this beautiful wedding card. I also designed the card we will make at class, and I will share that next week.

The Sweet Soiree designer paper is simply stunning. The colors are amazing and the paper has outlines of shimmery silver all through it.

IMG_1041

I coordinated the inks and cardstock to match the Sweet Soiree designer paper. The cardstock colors are rich razzleberry and sweet sugarplum as well as whisper white. To color the flower on the cake I used the ink from the inkpads and dipped a blender pen in the ink that I squeezed onto the lid of the inkpad. I colored in the flowers with the blender pen. The leaves were colored with old olive and the flowers are sweet sugarplum and flirty flamingo.

IMG_1040

I added some shimmer to the flowers with the Wink of Stella brush. It really shimmers in the light.

IMG_1045

IMG_1050

Its just so, so pretty in person. All the colors and shimmer are stunning. I left the greeting off of the front of the card and used the wedding wishes for inside. I used pink pirouette cardstock and rich razzleberry as well as old olive ink on the inside.

IMG_1042

Its the perfect Wedding Card.

IMG_1044

Another peek at the inside...

IMG_1046

I'm excited about this set and coordinating framelits as well as the amazing Sweet Soiree designer paper. I just can't stop looking at it!

I added the beautiful berry burst metalic edge ribbon and an ombre Glitter enamel dot for texture and dimension.

IMG_1048

I can't wait for the ladies at Card Class to use this set. I hope they love it as much as I do!

Thanks for visiting.

Petal Palette and Stampin' Blends

One of the first sets that I ordered from the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog was the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating dies. This set is not only lovely, but comes with some wonderful greetings and verses.

I have actually used these greetings many times with other stamp sets, because they are so perfect for many occasions.

For this card I also used the Petal Passion designer paper. This paper is all black and white and so beautiful. It goes with every color of the rainbow! The patterns are gorgeous as well.

I first stamped my roses in memento black ink, and then colored them in with the Stampin Blends Alcohol markers. I used the rich razzleberry light and dark, pink pirouette dark, and old olive light and dark markers.

IMG_E2715

I punched a hole in the designer paper with the 2 1/4" circle punch and mounted the roses over the hole with dimensionals. A strip of the new Myths and Magic glimmer paper in lemon lime twist adds some sparkle.

  IMG_E2719

Check out the new Glitter and Clear Epoxy shapes on the rose petals. I thought I would use them as "dew" on the petals.

IMG_2714

The black and white designer paper really makes the color of the roses "pop." I am loving this paper more and more, each time I use it.

IMG_2717

Sweet and simple on the inside, for the bride and groom.

IMG_2713

Check out the Petals Palette bundle in the Occasions Catalog- link on sidebar,(2nd catalog down) or below in the product list. There is so much more to this bundle than you see here. I think it will be one of your favorites as well.

Stampin Up Amazing Congratulations

What a cool 3 step stamp set, I must say. The Amazing Congratulations stamps are made to layer and blend together as you stamp them.

I used 3 colors for the word "congratulations." The colors are dark to light, dapper denim, bermuda bay and marina mist.

This card is super simple. It doesn't need a lot of embellishments, because the color layering does all the talking!

IMG_2712

I started with the dapper denim outline stamp and filled in with the other two colors. I found it so much easier to line up this way. I also found that if I focus on lining up the full letters only, it goes together really well.

IMG_2711

Check out that beautiful marbled background. I used the Marble background stamp, inked in marina mist and stamped on marina mist for a tone on tone look. A small Enamel Shape in dapper denim tops off the greeting.

IMG_2710

That's it. Super quick and super special.

Thanks for checking out my blog today.
