Tin of Cards

TinOfCardsI was needing a card for my craft group last month and wanted to do one that was simple but eye catching.

I had some of my Blushing Bride Glimmer paper sitting on my desk top and then I just got my new Blossom Bunch Punch so I put the two things together and here’s what I came up with.

Here’s the details…

  • Crumb Cake – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Crumb Cake – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and layer on Whisper White 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 add to card front
  • Blushing Bride Glimmer – 1/4 x 4, add to card front
  • Blushing Bride – stamp greeting using Soft Suede, punch using large Oval Punch – add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – punch out large and medium flowers, layer and add to card front
  • Blushing Bride – 1/2″ circles, add to center of each flower

Tin of Cards

CAS351The other day I was walking by my desk and saw a cut out of a leaf (the negative image) sitting on top of a piece of dsp that was sitting there.  WOW…it looked sooo cool!

So today I wanted to do a little stamping and then I saw the CAS challenge on SCS was to use leaves so00000…what can I say…another time when a card pretty much made itself.  I SOOO love when that happens.

I was going to stick with just black and white but I wanted to add just a a little accent so went with a gold metal button instead of a silver one!

Here’s the detail…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Everyday Chic (the little triangle print) – 3 3/4 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/4 x 5 1/2, cut out leaf using leaflet framelit, stamp greeting using Versamark and black emboss.
  • Black Glimmer – 3/8 x 5 1/2, add to left side of Whisper White panel and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Tie Gold Cording Trim into large Gold Basic Metal Button, add to leaf to finish off

Yep…that’s all there is – nice and clean and simple!

Set(s): Tin of a Cards
Paper: Whisper White THICK, Whisper White, Everyday Chic dsp, Black Glimmer
Ink: Versamark

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

Tour de Freaks July Hop

freakwelcome2013Welcome to the July Tour de Freaks Blog Hop!  Although we usually have our hop on the 20th of the month, since many of our participants were in Salt Lake City enjoying the Stampin’ Up! convention so we delayed out hop just a little bit!

But we are here now and ready to share our ideas with you!  This month is a ‘free for all’ so you’ll be getting a little bit of this an a little bit of that!

If you are going forward through the hop, you arrived here from Melissa Davies Rubberfunatics blog!  What GREAT projects!

I am just absolutely wild about the Wild about Flowers set so I decided to use it for my projects.  I have a cute little card and matching mini gift bag for you!

CFJUL15-1I remember seeing a very cool card made by our very own, very talented Wendy Weixler using some ‘frames’ as the background so I used that idea as a ‘theme’ for my cards.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 3 5/8, run through the Butterflies Embossing Folder and add using dimensionals
  • Cut out frames from Watermelon Wonder and Basic Black…I layered I think 5 different square framelits so I’d have different size frames to play with.  Add frames to card front.
  • Whisper White – 2 1/2 x 2 1/2.  Stamp stem using Mint Macaron, flowers using Watermelon Wonder and greeting using Memento Black.
  • Mint Macaron – 1 x 3 5/8, cut into banner on both sides, add behind stamp panel and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Cut out Itty Bitty Butterfly from Incolor Envelope dsp add to card front.
  • Add some Basic Black Candy Dots to finish it up.

CFJUL15-2So next up I made a cute little gift bag using the Gift Bag Punch board.

Here’s the details…

  • Mint Macaron – 6 x 10 piece, punch and score.  I folded along the score lines then ran through the Butterfly Embossing Folder.  Put together.
  • Add a Watermelon Wonder and Basic Black frame.  I used the smaller ones that I had cut out.
  • Whisper White – 1 5/8 x 2 1/8.  Stamp stem using Mint Macaron, flowers using Watermelon Wonder and greeting using Memento Black.
  • Incolor Envelope dsp – Watermelon Wonder piece – 3/4 x 2 3/4, cut into banner on both ends, add behind stamp panel and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Watermelon Wonder – punch out Itty Bitty Butterfly, add Basic Black Candy Dot and add to stamp panel.
  • Tie top of bag using Watermelon Wonder 1″ Lace Ribbon.

Here’s the two projects together…

1 Card – 3 Ways

Now…I am sure this NEVER happens to you…you sit down to make something and you have something very specific in mind and when you are done…well, you sort of took a left at your stampin’ desk!  Today I sat down to make a card for the casology challenge – wings.  When I finished…it looked like this…

dragonfly2

Now don’t get me wrong…LOVE IT!  But it was NOT the card I set out to make!  So I decided to make the one I set out to make and I came up with this…

dragonfly1

So…funny thing about this card…LOVE IT…but STILL not the card I set out to make.  Well…you know what they say…3rd time’s the charm and here’s my third card…

dragonfly3Now we’re talking…THIS is the card I had intended to make when I started out this morning!  Really all the components are pretty much the same…

  • Base card (either Perfect Plum or Whisper White) – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Layer (either Perfect Plum or Whisper White) – 3 7/8 x 3 7/8.  Top two run completely through the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder, last one only the top 2/3.  Add using dimensionals.
  • Strips – first one Silver glimmer – 5/8 x 3 7/8 an 3/8 x 3 7/8, second one Mint Macaron – two strips 1/4 x 3 7/8, and third one 1/4 x 3 7/8.
  • Cut two different sized Lots of Labels from Whisper White, stamp splatter in Mint Macaron and greeting in Night of Navy, later using dimensionals and add using dimensionals.
  • Stamp dragonfly using Perfect Plum on Whisper White, cut out and add to card fronts.
  • For third card, add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off.

So…which one is YOUR favorite???
