Magnificent Maple

CC445Yep…I SERIOUSLY LOVE these two set…Magnificent Maple (a la carte) and Gorgeous Grunge.  What can I say!  And together…just PERFECT!  I thought it would work so nicely for the color challenge on  SCS today!  And it is also perfect for the CASology challenge today for ‘autumn’.

The base of the card is Smoky Slate.  I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the horizontal stripe in Smoky Slate and then the ‘splotch’ in Smoky Slate too.  I layered this onto a piece of Gumball Green and added a thin strip of the Gumball Green. This panel is added to the card base using dimensionals.  I stamped the leaf in Gumball Green on Whisper White, cut out and added using dimensionals.  Next was stamping the greeting using Gumball Green on Whisper White, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals.  Finally it needed just a little more so I added some Basic Rhinestones for that little extra ‘bling’!

Set(s): Magnificent Maple, Gorgeous Grunge, A Dozen Thoughts
Paper: Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Gumball Green
Ink: Smoky Slate, Gumball Green
Other: Basic Rhinestone, Dimensionals


Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

Sweet Essentials

SUO80Oh my…so the SUO Challenge this time is to make a BABY themed card.  WHAT???  Like I have ANY STAMPS for a baby card.  What’s a girl to do?  So after much thinking this is what I came up with.

The base of the card is Very Vanilla.  I ran the top through the Dotted Embossing Folder.  Next I took a piece of So Saffron, cut the bottom edge using the Large Scallop Edge then embossed the bottom with the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder and the top with the Needlepoint Embossing Folder.  I added a strip of Wisteria Wonder along the top then added to the card front.  Next I made a bow with the Gift Bow Die and Afternoon Picnic dsp.  I added this to the card front.  I stamped the greeting using Basic Grey on Wisteria Wonder, cut into a banner and added to the bow.  Finally I tied some white baker’s twine on a Wisteria Wonder button and added to the bow to finish it off!

Check out what the other SUO Design Team members did for their baby cards!
