Back for another card for the Duluth, Georgia Saturday Scrapbook Expo Card Swap. Keeping it simple and will add some bling later once I have them all done.
This is a Darcie’s Fairy Tales stamp set. The stamped images were fussy cut. Really need that ScanNCut!
A Sizzx Paisley embossing folder, a label cut form gold scraps, and the perfect sentiment from MayMay Made It Just Wanted You To Know stamp set.
Stamping is much more satisfying using the Misti. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves to stamp.
This years (2017) Saturday card swap theme is using embossing folders or bling. I had some time in my stampin studio this weekend with the older grands and was able to make three cards for the swap. I decided I need to keep it simple and if I have time I can always add more bling at the last minute.
I have Darcie’s Fairy Tales stamp set that hadn’t been inked from last years Expo shopping so I gave it some ink love using Memento Black ink and my Misti.
Simple coloring with markers, gel pens, and Wink of Stella clear pen. A paisley Sizzix embossing folder ran through my Cuttlebug on Neenah White 110# card stock once. The sentiment is from a MayMay Made It stamp club set. I think it’s called Wanted You To Know but that may not be correct.
Using scraps of gold card stock I cut a label to mount this adorable Unicorn on. I had to fussy cut this stamped image, but maybe a ScanNCut will be in my future soon.
I like making simple yet elegant cards and I think these cards qualify! Using supplies and scraps I had close to my scrapping island I made these 4 cards very quickly.
I stamped my image about 12 times weeks ago. When I pulled out my scraps I chose colors from my Stamp N Write Markers by Stampin’ Up and colored the 4 images to coordinate with the scraps I decided to use.
I used a Stardust Glitter Pen that I picked up at my LSS to add some bling to the little dresses.
What better way to have all of your Christmas Cards done than to do one a week between now and Christmas time.
I found this sketch and a weekly challenge over at Always Playing With Paper. The challenge is posted on Monday’s and you have until Sunday of the next week to enter a link to your blog post for this weeks challenge. They have a great design team I inspire you so pop over there and take a few supplies and Cristmas goodies and knock out a great Christmas card or two!
I used Stampin Up Holiday Thyme DSP, a Two Step Bird punch to make the cardinal, and some SU card stock. I kept it simple as I have the birds already made. I colored the Christmas Postcard stamp with Stampin Up Stamp N Write markers and used the ink and a blender pens on some of the stamp for shading purposes.
A little glitter pen and Signo silver and gold gel pens on the bells. Hope you enjoy and happy crafting!
It’s great to have cards made to use for multiple occasions! I think today’s card is one of those cards to keep in my stash.
This is a CAS (clean and simple) card if there ever was one! You could dress this card up or keep it as is depending on who your recipient is.
I used Stampin’ Up! Framelit Die Label Collection to emboss the label shape on the card.
To emboss my card front I used my PC Cuttlebug with the tan crease mat by Spellbinders and the A and B plates. I added my card stock and centered the Label die cut side up. I added the 2nd B plate and then used a piece of chipboard for a Shem. If your using thicker card stock you may not need a Shem. Very easy to do and I love the look!
Here are my directions for using the Framelit Dies in my PC Cuttlebug.
This card can easily be used to welcome a baby, for baptism or christening, Easter, get well, thinking of you, praying for you, new members, new church visitors, a simple wedding card, the ideas are endless really!
The cross is from PC Cricut Easter 2010 cartridge and was cut using my Cricut Expression. I embossed the 3 inch cross with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.
The welcome stamp is from a retired Stampin’ Up! Stamp set that I cut apart to be able to use the words individually.
Here is another Easter card that I made using my free Framelit Die Label Collection from Stampin’ Up! and some DCWV Mediterranean Cafe papers that scream Spring!
My card is a standard A2 size. The first layer of patterned card stock is cut at 4X5.25 inches. I centered the 3rd largest die on this card stock and cut it with my Cuttlebug using the A, B, and C cutting plates. The base of my card was cut using the 4 largest die centered on the front using the same cutting plates. I used a piece of Stampin’ Up! Marina Mist card stock to layer on the inside of the front of my card.
The Easter 2010 Cricut cartridge makes these cards a breeze! I cut a whole page of this cross to use for various cards at 3 inches. The cross is embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and popped up using Sticky Doos adhesive from Hobby Lobby.
Easter is drawing near and I had yet to get the first Easter cards made until last weekend. I was playing with my free Stampin’ Up! Framelit Dies Label Collection and decided to try making a popped up border and added this gorgeous embossed cross from PC Easter 2010 seasonal cartridge.
I wanted to make a few that are more masculine looking for my Dad and my brother. I used the Tim Holtz Woodgrain Embossing Folder by Sizzix with my PC Cuttlebug. The cross was cut at 3 inches. I cut a page of these to use on various cards in the future.
I used the 4th largest die in the Label Collection to cut the opening in my A2 card. I tried to center it as best as I could on the card front before running it through my Cuttlebug using the A, B, and C plates. The striped label is the 2nd largest die with the 3rd largest die nested in its center and run through my Cuttlebug. I will try to take a photo of this the next time I do it and post a tutorial!
The largest frame and the cross is popped up using pop up adhesive. I lined the inside of the front of the card with some pretty coordinating paper from DCWV Cafe Mediterranean. Not I used the back side of the cross as its de-embossed verses embossed for a more masculine look.
