Evergreen

And I couldn’t resist it one last time!  (And I still have some of the dsp left…hehehehehe!)  And look…I actually managed to use another print from that pack!  There was this GREAT sketch on The Paper Players today so I just HAD to join the fun!

As always some quick notes on my card…the base of the card is Lucky Limeade.  I took a piece of the Early Espresso print, layered it onto Very Vanilla then added the card base using dimensionals.  Next I took a piece of my very favorite print, added Very Vanilla Ribbon Lace punches to the to and bottom and added to the card front.  Next up was a piece of the Champagne Glimmer, cut into a banner added to strips of Very Vanilla just for a little contrast and added to the card front.  I took a 2 3/8″ Lucky Limeade Scallop Circle, sponged the edges in Lucky Limeade and added to the card front using dimensionals.  The tree was stamped in Lucky Limeade then the Loopy tree was embossed in gold on top, punched with a 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, layered onto an Early Espresso circle then to the card front using dimensionals.  I did a Champagne Glimmer star (Merry Mini punch) added with a glue dot.  Finally I stamped the first two lines of the greeting in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla, cut with Bitty Banner Framelit then layered onto a Lucky Limeade banner and added to the card front to finish it off.

Evergreen AGAIN

Can you tell that I LOVE this set?  And I particularly LOVE this set with this dsp?  I found this new challenge site CAS(E) this Sketch and just LOVED the challenge sketch and HAD to join in!

The base of the card is Very Vanilla.  I took a piece of the dsp and punched a 2 1/2″ hole in it.  I added an Early Espresso Large Scallop Edge and a strip of Champagne Glimmer paper, then attached to the card base.  I punched out a 2 3/8″ Early Espresso Scallop and added to the card front.  Next I stamped the tree in Lucky Limeade then embossed the loopy tree on top in gold, punched with the 1 3/4″ circle punch, added to a Champagne Glimmer circle.  I made a bow (click tutorial link above to access tutorial) using Very Vanilla Seam Binding and a Gold Brad, added to the circle than added circle to card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the first two lines from the greeting using Early Espresso on Very Vanilla, cut with Bitty Banner Framelit, layered on Champagne Glimmer banner (same framelit) then to card front using dimensionals and glue dots.  What a fun little card!

Mary Jo has such a GREAT sketch this week…so nice and simple!  I knew as soon as I saw it that I would be using this set with it.  Just PERFECT!!!  I soooo love the Evergreen set!

This is a quick and easy card.  The base of the card is Lucky Limeade.  I took a piece of Early Espresso and added it to the card front.  I took a piece of my very favorite print from the Candlelight Christmas dsp pack, added a Very Vanilla Large Scallop edge under it then added to the card front.  Next I stamped the tree using Lucky Limeade and Early Espresso on Very Vanilla, layered onto Early Espresso and added some Gold Brads.  I added this panel to the card front using dimensionals.  I punched a star from Gold Glimmer using star in the Merry Mini punch pack and added using a glue dot.  Finally I stamped the greeting in Lucky Limeade on Very Vanilla, punched with Word Window punch, layered on Early Espresso Modern Label punch then to the card front to finish it off.  Soooo elegant!

Evergreen Class

WELCOME TO MY NEW BLOG!!!  I am sooooooo excited to have you all here!  Isn’t this new look WONDERFUL?  I absolutely LOVE IT!!!  And the really cool thing?  Julie (of Webics Designs) has designed 3 looks for me – one for Fall (GORGEOUS!!!) and coming soon – Winter followed by my Spring/Summer look!  I can’t wait!  Then Randy (my DH) found this cool blog template for me so…I am rocking!

To ‘kick things off’ I am going to share not only some fun cards (and a little 3D) using the Evergreen set, but also a quick and easy pdf that has ALL the instructions in there!  Now…please don’t think I’ll be doing this all the time – NOT!  These were my projects that I did for my upline’s meeting in September.  We were asked to pick a set and create 3 cards and 1 small 3D item.  Since I just {heart} this set, I couldn’t wait to use it for my mnts for her meeting.

Since I liked this sooooo much I thought I’d just hold off showing these until it was time to ‘unveil’ my new blog!  So TA-DA!!!!  New blog and fun Evergreen sampler set!

Want to see the individual pictures and download my instruction sheet?  I thought so!  Here you go…

Evergreen Class by Mary Brown

If you are looking for a new look for your blog…do contact Julie!  She was just WONDERFUL to work with and I absolutely LOVE what she designed for me!   This is just sooooooo me!

So…until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

 

Evergreen – A Sketch Challenge

There is such a wonderful sketch on Create with Connie and Mary this week!  I like when we try ‘something new’ and diagonals are definitely not something we have in our sketches very often!

Didn’t this turn out pretty?  I thought so too!  The base of the card is Lucky Limeade.  I would LOVE to tell you the name of the dsp I used on this but I am writing this while I am away from home, I do not have my catalog or mini and I am tooooooo tired to look up the information.  However, it is NOT Snow Festival or the Festive paper pack.  It’s the one with the Red Flocked paper in there.  I’m SURE you can find it from THAT description!  LOL!!!  I layered an Early Espresso Ribbon Lace Strip under it and a champagne glitter strip about it.  I made a ‘bow’ (click here for my tutorial) using Very Vanilla Seam Binding and a Very Vanilla brad, added it to the diagonal panel then added this to the card front. I stamped the tree in Lucky Limeade (with a little Early Espresso for the trunk) on Very Vanilla cardstock, that gold embossed the loopy Christmas tree on top of it.  This is layered onto Early Espresso then onto the card front using dimensionals to finish it off.  The greeting is from Petite Pairs and was stamped in Early Espresso.  The star was punched from the Champagne Glimmer paper using the little start punch from the Merry Mini punch set.

Set(s): Evergreen, Petite Pairs
Paper: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade, Champagne Glimmer & the dsp from Holiday Mini that is NOT Snow Festival or Festive
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso, Versamark
Other: Gold Embossing Powder, Ribbon Lace Punch, Very Vanilla Seam Binding, Neutral Brads, Merry Mini Punch Pack, Dimensionals.
