Sweet Baby -- oh so pretty. My sister, Tina, designed this card. We used it for our Wondrous Wreath Stamp of the Month Class. Everyone loved how delicate this card was.
The base of the card is Pink Pirouette with a layer of Whisper White that has been embossed with the Filigree Frame embossing folder. The wreath is stamped with Pear Pizzazz ink and then Wild Wasabi over it. We added little flowers that are Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Whisper White, pearls were added to the center of the flowers.
I hope you enjoyed all four Stamp of the Month Cards featuring the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and coordinating Framelits
I am having so much fun with the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and you know I love the All is Calm designer paper.
I used the All is Calm designer paper for the background on this card with Lost Lagoon for my cardbase. Then I added the Pear Pizzazz layer with a Whisper White layer for stamping. I stamped the image with Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive inks and the berry dots are stamped with Lost Lagoon. I cut out the "Joy" with the coordinating Wonderful Wreath Framelits -- don't forget to use wax paper when cutting out these intricate designs. I used the Silver cardstock -- put the cardstock face up on the cutting platform, put a piece of wax paper over the top of the cardstock, put the framelit on the wax paper and cut out the image. There are little dots on the framelit to poke with the Piercing Tool and the word will come right out.
This stamp set is so versatile -- if you didn't come to my Stamp of the Month class using this stamp set, you really need to order it -- you will love it.
The Wondrous Wreath stamp set from the Holiday Catalog is wonderful. It is such a beautiful image yet it is so easy to do. Your family and friends will be very impressed to know that you made this card just for them.
This technique is lots of fun. It's almost like Shrinky Dinks -- do you remember those.
I stamped the flower image from the Flower Shop stano set onto a piece of Stampin' Up! Window Sheet using Stazon ink. Turn the stamped piece over and color the flowers with the Blendability markers. Punch out with the coordinating Pansy Punch. Hold the flower with a pair of tweezers and using the Heat Gun apply hot air to the plastic (be careful not to burn yourself). You can see the plastic start to thicken and curl, move around the flower until all the petals are done.
I used a Candy Dot Base Brad and colored it with the Daffodil Delight Blendability. Adhere the flower to card front with glue dot. Then I punched a hold in the center of the flower, insert the brad and attach the piece to the front of your card.
The ladies thought this would be fun with a fish stamp -- you could color it with the Night of Navy and Coastal Cabana Blendabilities. So many ideas to play with -- give it a try.
This card was made in this month's Blendabilities class. This is a favorite technique of mine. I stamped the flower border image from Bordering Blooms stamp set with VersaMark and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. Once it cooled down I used the darkest Rich Razzleberry and the medium Old Olive Blendabilities to color over the white embosses image.
This technique kind of reminds me of my kids playing with a Lite Brite. I'm not sure why but the colored image on the black background just reminds of that. We then colored the Rhinestones with the darkest Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities. Hello from the Hi There stamp set is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink.
If you haven't tried the Blendabilities yet, I highly recommend them -- they are loads of fun to use.
This is the last of September's Christmas Stamp-a-Stack cards. The All is Calm designer paper is definitely my favorite and the ladies all loved it too.
We stamped the Mingle All the Way stamp with VersaMark ink and the heat embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder. The shapes are cut with the Deco Labels Framelits.
Everyone made two cards of each of the five designs I have shown -- 10 cards in one evening. By the middle of November they will have 30 cards to mail out to family and friends. Are you ready to join me for October's Christmas Stamp-a-Stack Class??
Baby's It's Cold Outside -- though that's not really true right now -- we are still enjoying fall -- this card is a quick, easy holiday card. It features the All is Calm designer paper and the 2" circle punch.
