I feel like fashion and glitter go hand in hand, so for my most recent CutCardstock design team project, I combined the cutest stamp set with some of CutCardstock’s gorgeous glitter card stock.

To create the frame and highlight all that great sparkle, I the Fine Frames Cover die from Altenew that creates these really thin rectangle frames.  I cut three sets: one each from Mirrisparkle Glitter Silver card stock, Mirrisparkle Glitter Pink Sapphire, and Pow Black Glitter paper.  I then chose three that would fit together nicely around my sentiment and images on the front of my card.

I then stamped my sentiment (from an older WPlus9 set–Sparkle & Shine) on to the front of a card I made using Cougar White Super Smooth 100# card stock.  I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with a holographic embossing powder.

I heat embossed the adorable little ladies from Stampendous’ Sassy City stamp set all around the sentiment using Versafine Onyx ink and clear embossing powder.  I love that name–Sassy City!

Here’s a peek at the inside…..I used an older set from Hero Arts called Many Birthday Messages.

To finish, I added the glittered frames to highlight the scene.

I love how the hint of glitter pulls together an otherwise pretty clean and simple design.  The die cut frames are great too, because you can save the rest for many more projects.

 Thanks so much for joining me today!

embossing

For today’s card, I’m joining in the current challenge which is “embossing”  I am using the Bookcase wooden stamp along with the Stamp Your Own Fruit stamp set to create a teacher appreciation card.

IMG_5191

Using some Hero Arts Sea Mix and older teal layering papers, I created two A2 size notecards and stamped the bookcase onto the front of each using Versamark ink.  I then sprinkled white embossing powder and heat embossed the entire background.  You want to be sure to use a powder bag before stamping to ensure crisp embossing with the powder staying in the right places.

IMG_5180

The Stamp Your Own Fruit set has an apple that is such a perfect, basic shape.  I colored two with a few Copics and then trimmed them out with scissors.

Teacher 2

I popped the apple up with some foam tape in the middle of each of my cards and added a heat embossed sentiment using the Thanks Stamp & Cut set.

Teacher 1

This was a super easy card to make and you can do different colors for both masculine and feminine.  I love the combination of the apple with the bookcase for the teacher theme.

Thanks so much for joining me today!

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!
