Clean & Simple Holiday

IMG_2912

Hi Everyone!

Last week was the latest Online Card Classes clean and simple class called Clean & Simple Holiday.  It was a super busy week, so I was only able to complete one project, but there are a lot of great ideas that I’m definitely going to refer back to.

I was inspired by Shari’s colored pencil technique on the back of vellum, so I used a background stamp from Hero Arts and heat embossed it in white for the technique.

Shari has a really nice clean and layered style, so I layered the sentiments with foam tape leaving lots of white space.

I love the way this turned out.  A really great way to use background stamps you have in your stash.  Thanks for joining me today!

CutCardstock Design Team Project: Good Vibes

I cannot resist “retro style” typography.  When it’s a shadowed die cut–even better!  Today’s card, first featured over at the the CutCardstock blog, has all that and a layer of stenciled embossing– another favorite :).  The star of the show however is the gorgeous silver and gold card stock from the CutCardstock shop.  Pow Silver Glitter paper and Currency Cover Gold card stock.

I glued my word die cuts together using some strong Tombow glue.  I made two versions of the die cut and settled on the gold on top of the glitter.  I’ll save the other for another project.

Next, I took a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of Pop Tone card stock in Berrylicious and a stencil with some retro circles and ran VersaMark ink over the top of the stencil.  I then heat embossed opaque white embossing powder over the top.

IMG_0920

I trimmed down the panel and adhered it to the front of a note card using foam tape.   I made the white card using Cougar White Super Smooth card stock in 100#.  The stencil was a little difficult to heat emboss perfectly because it did not have a border, but the die cut will cover that up.

I added some clear gems to mimic the bubbles in the stencil.  This card makes me smile.  The gold and silver card stock pieces give just enough shimmer and shine without overpowering the card.

Kat Scrappiness Design Team Project: Dress Up

Next to cute food and floral stamps, fashion stamps are my favorites.  For today’s project, I used Technique Tuesday’s Sassy Fashion stamp set along with Kat’s new Stitched Scalloped Rectangle dies.

dress 2I decided to do a clean and simple layered look to showcase the adorable scallops.  I love their small size, and the stitching is the perfect compliment.  A layer of felt ties in the theme of clothing/textiles.  I have a video HERE where you can watch my process.  Be sure to head over to the Kat Scrappiness shop to check out all the new die sets released this month.  Feel free to use my coupon code: Heidi10 to receive 10% off your purchase.  Thanks for watching!  Supplies are linked below.
