Class project #3

Perfectly Preserved is the name of the stamp set used for this card.  I love this set, especially because it comes with matching framelits for every image.  Makes using it really easy.  I loved using the different strips of  Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper and the different types of ribbon as well.  Makes me think of fall!

Until next time ~


Class Project #2

I love this witch's boot from the set, Bootiful Occasions!  It is so whimsical looking and I knew I had to pair it up with our Polka Dotted Scalloped Ribbon and our new Polka Dot Parade DSP. The pic is a little dark, but the color combo is Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, Whisper White and Pumpkin Pie.  It is a very simple card to make, just a few layers of paper and ribbon, but what really makes it a WOW card is the strip of Silver Glimmer Paper and the new embossing folder that I used for the background piece, Lacy Brocade.  you can find this in our Holiday Mini Catalog.  It just added the perfect feminine element to this card.  I also used another new product from the Holiday Mini, Silver Dazzling Details.  I used it on the edges of the mini flower that I put on the boot.  It coordinated beautifully with the Silver Glimmer Paper.  Here is a look at all of the images from the stamp set, Bootiful Occasions:

"Fall" Back into Stamping! Class Project #1

I just love fall, so I was really excited to come up with a couple of fall cards for our 1st class of the holiday season.  Ruby & I gathered last Saturday night with our regular gals and had such a blast showing them cards made with new items from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  This card featured so many new items I almost lost count! Here they are:
Woodgrain Embossing Folder
Early Espresso Coredinations Paper
Sanding Block
Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper
Champage Shimmer Paper
Brushed Bronze Desinger Buttons
1 1/4" Scallop Punch
Autumn Accents Bigz Die
Natural 7/8" Cotton Ribbon
I brought Teeny Tiny Wishes so the girls could make the card for any occasion they desired.  I made mine for Thanksgiving, just because it was the perfect sentiment for fall.  I used the Woodgrain Embossing Folder on the Coredinations Paper and then sanded it with our new Sanding Block.  It is an awesome technique.  I used the same Embossing Folder on the leaves, but instead of sanding I sponged them with Early Espress Ink to give them an aged look.
What do you think?
Until next time ~
