Flurry of Wishes Shaker Card

It's never too early to get a start on your holiday cards.  Today I have a fun, interactive card to share with you.  It will have you thinking cool thoughts during these hot, humid days.

Shaker cards are so much fun and they are super easy to make.  Everyone who receives a shaker card is immediately WOW'd by it!  They will think that you spent hours making the card, but the truth is that you can create this card in under an hour.  Just let everyone think you spent hours making it.  


I love using the thick Whisper White card stock for a nice, clean card base.  It makes the Dapper Denim on this card pop.


Inside of the shaker portion of the card, I stamped the snowflakes in Smoky Slate.  If you wanted a more subtle effect, you could stamp them off first before making your final stamped image.  That would make a very light shade of Smoky Slate and will bring even more attention to your sentiment.


To create the "confetti" for inside of the shaker, I used the star confetti punch and some silver glimmer paper.  The stars are the perfect size for a shaker card, and the glimmer paper adds sparkle!  Then I quickly added another sentiment and some additional snowflakes to decorate the interior of the card.

TIP: Do your interior stamping first.  That way if you make a mistake, you can just stamp an new card base rather than having to take the shaker element off and transferring it to a new card.

Just Us Girls Challenge #306

Hi Stampers! 

Today I have a card to share with you that I entered into the Just Us Girls Challenge for this week.  It was a color challenge and I couldn't resist trying out some new stamps and dies.  The new Delicate Ornament Thinlits dies are so cool.  I pre-ordered the new Precision Plate for the Big Shot and it makes it super easy to cut out these intricate designs. No more wax paper for this girl!

The color challenge was to use black, red, and gray so I went with Basic Black, Real Red, and Smoky Slate as my color combo.


If you click on this image it will take you to the Just Us Girls Challenge blog where you can check out all of the fun inspiration for this color combo!
Here is a close up of the ornament.  Can you see all of the fun new products used?

Freshly Made Sketches 198 - Bridal Shower Card

Hi Stampers!

Today I have a card for you that I actually did a stash dive on.  I was trying to use up some of my retired supplies on this card.  I thought the color combo was perfect for a summertime bridal shower.  I used sketch 198 from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog as my inspiration.

Here's the card that I made:
bridal shower

Sadly, this stamp set, Love and Laughter, is no longer available.  I really loved this set.  I was a dummy and got rid of mine, so I had to go and borrow it from my friend!  I loved this Gold Soiree Designer Series Paper!  It's on the clearance rack right now so be sure to stock up!!!

Here is the sketch I used for inspiration.  I love it!   It's so simple, but you can really add to it depending on your personal stamping style.

Here's a close up of the gold emobossed bridal gown.  I love how the gown is formed from all different sized text.

You Rock!

Hi Stampers!

For today's card I went a little out of my comfort zone.  I worked with a very bright, masculine color palette.  I really love the new Layered Letters Alphabet stamp set from the 2015-2016 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog.  It's probably my favorite alpha set ever.  It's a lot of fun to play with.  Great for cards, but it's also a large enough size that it would look great on a scrapbook layout!  I'm definitely going to have to try that!


Do you have this alpha set?  Do you love it?  If not, what's your favorite alpha stamp set?  Let me know in the comments! :-)

By the Tide Watercolor Card


Hi Stampers!

It's summertime, so how about a beachy card?  Today I have a card for you made with the By the Tide stamp set.  This set is really great for making all kinds of cards.  I made a background paper by inking an acrylic block with three different ink pads. Then I spritz it with some water and stamped the block on some watercolor paper.  It made a cool watery looking background.  Then I stamped and embossed the images in gold.


I layered the stamped image over a scrap of the burlap ribbon that was sitting on my desk. I frayed the ends a bit for some added texture.


I hope you liked my beach inspired card.  Where is your favorite beach?  Let me know in the comments!

Autumn Wine Bottle Tag

Hi Stampers!

Today I have a non-card project for you.  Here is a festive way to dress up a bottle of wine that you may be giving as a gift this holiday season.  The one I have posted here is done in all Autumn colors, but this could very easily be done in Christmas colors for a last minute way of dressing up a bottle.  This would be a great hostess gift to give at a holiday party! 

I used my hot glue gun for creating the medallion and attaching it to the ribbon.  It just has a much better hold for this type of project than any other adhesive.

 

I love the burlap ribbon that Stampin' Up! sells.  It's perfect for making bottle tags because it lays so nicely!   I made my ribbon tails longer and then trimmed them down to the length I wanted right at the end.  I wanted my tails to come past the label so that it was more covered up.  That way the recipient moves the tag to the side to see what type of wine you gave them - it's kind of like unwrapping but with less mess! 

The banner was stamped using my Stamp-a-majig so that I could get perfect placement.  After stamping, I made the score lines on either side of the stamped image and then a second set of score lines 1/4" away from each of the first score lines.  After I did all of that, then I cut the flagged ends by hand. 


Do you like to dress up the bottles that you are giving this holiday season?  Let me know in the comments!

Check out my pre-order!

Hi Stampers!

Want to see all of the goodies I pre-ordered from the Occasions 2015 and Sale-A-Bration catalogs?  Check out the two videos I have posted of me opening my order.  I will warn you that I have no idea what I'm doing when I'm filming videos and I have zero editing skills.  I'll stick to stamping instead of becoming a filmmaker.

Enjoy!  Tell me in the comments what new products you are most excited about!
