Day 3 of showcasing our class Christmas Cards.

If you saw my post on Monday, I shared with you one of the cards we created in our Creative Cards Class showcasing the gorgeous Year of Cheer Specialty DSP.  Grab it while you are able as it is one of the items retiring from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

Once again, I’ve used the Peace This Christmas Stamp Set but heat embossed it with the Silver Emboss Powder.Year-of-Cheer-1---Inside

To compliment the lovely DSP & embossing,  we’ve used touches of Silver Foil both to the card front & to the inside of the card.

The snowflake on the front of the card is from Seasonal Layers Thinlits Die & has been die cut from Silver Foil.

To pick up the silver in the DSP, I’ve layered onto a piece of Smokey Slate CS & then to the Base Card – Thick Whisper White.

To finish off the card I scattered Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the embossed sentiment.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Good Morning Stampers,

Over the next 2 weeks I will be sharing with you the Christmas Cards we have been creating in our classes, all very different but all with a bit of a wow.  In fact, the ladies are loving them & keep coming back so that must be a good thing, right?

Today’s card is one I actually cased from Pinterest to get my creative juices flowing usingYear-of-Cheer---Inside the gorgeous Year of Cheer Speciality DSP..  Thank you to Connie for your inspiration.  Of course I’ve put my own spin on it.

The sentiment is from the Peace This Christmas Stamp Set.  One which I think has been a little overlooked this year.  It is so easy to do with all the new product to play with.

It has been stamped in VersaMark & then heat embossed using the Copper Emboss Powder.  I’ve randomly scattered a couple of the lovely White Perfect Accents to complete the card.

Remarkable You #3

Remarkable-You-3---Close-up

G’Day Stampers,

Today is card #3 & #4 of the set of Thank You cards I created using the Remarkable You Stamp Set.

Card #3 – I’ve kept the layout fairly simple by stamping the flower & sentiment direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.Remarkable-You3---Thank-You

The flower has been coloured with Stampin’ BlendsPumpkin Pie & Daffodil Delight.  I’m really happy with the end result.

I layered the stamped piece of Very Vanilla CS onto a piece of Tangerine Tango & then to the Very Vanilla Note Card.

To complete the card I applied Candy Dots – Brights (retired) to the front.  You could easily replace with current Embellishments & colour with the Stampin’ Blends.

Card #4 – Exactly the same layout except for the colours.  I’ve layered the Very Vanilla CS onto a Remarkable-You---Rich-Razzlpiece of Rich Razzlebbery & then to the Base Card – Very Vanilla Not Card.

This time round, the flower has been coloured with the Stampin’ Blends – Rich Razzleberry & Old Olive.

I still have 2 more cards to share with you in the next couple of weeks.

Until next time, Happy Stampn’

Oh, So Eclectic

Oh-So-Eclectic--Jenny---Clo

G’Day Stampers,

Today’s card is one I created for a friend who celebrated her 60th birthday last week.  Thanks to Jenni’s dress for the inspiration!

I must apologise for not having a tutorial for you to download but I will try & remember how I created it.  First up, I’ve used the Oh So Eclectic Bundle which includes the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set & the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

To create my card I sponged a piece of Whisper White CS with Crushed Curry, Night ofOh-So-Eclectic---Jenny---In Navy & Elegant Eggplant Inks using a Stamping Sponge.  This piece was then adhered behind a piece of Whisper white CS which had been die cut using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  It was then layered onto a piece of Crushed Curry CS & then to the Base Card – Elegant Eggplant.

The large flower was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before applying Elegant Eggplant Ink with a Sponge Dauber.  The inner petals were highlighted with Night of Navy Ink using a Blender Pen before finishing off with Clear Wink of Stella & die cutting with the matching die from Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

Oh-So-Eclectic-Jenny-Close-The 2 flowers were once again stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS.  The first flower was lightly shaded with Crushed Curry Ink using a Sponge Dauber.  Again, the lower inner petals were highlighted with Crushed Curry & a Blender Pen before being die cut with the matching die from the Oh So Eclectic Thinlits & Clear Wink of Stella applied.

I used the same technique for the 2nd flower but this time using Night of Navy & Elegant Eggplant Inks.

The leaves were die cut with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits from a piece of Whisper White before Garden Green Ink applied with a Sponge Dauber.

The flowers & leaves were arranged onto the Card Front before being adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set & has been stamped direct onto the Card Front in Memento Tuxedo Black.

To complete the card I scattered Regals Candy Dots (retired) around the Card Front.  You could easily replace the Dots with current products & colouring with the Stampin’ Blends.

I’m happy to say Jenni loved her card & hopefully you do too.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Remarkable You #2

Remarkable-You1a---Thank-Yo

Today’s card is #2 of the set of Thank You Cards I created yesterday using Remarkable You Stamp Set.  Did you catch it while it was on sale yesterday?

I’ve created it exactly the same way as my card yesterday except this time my card is Landscape & I’ve used Stampin’ BlendsRich Razzleberry & Cherry Cobbler.

I layered the stamped piece of Very Vanilla CS onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry CS & then Remarkable-You1---Thank-Youto the Very Vanilla Note Card.

 

I will have the 3rd card to share with you tomorrow so don’t forget to pop back in to chack it out.

 

Until next time, Happy Stampn’

Remarkable-You-x-2---Thank-

Remarkable You

Remarkable-You---Thank-You-

G’Day Stampers,

I trust you all took advantage of the 24 hours sale yesterday & will again for the remainder of the week.  I know I did & can’t wait to create with some of the new products on its way to me.

Today’s card is one of a set of Thank You Cards I’ve created with the lovely Remarkable You Stamp Set which was on the 24 hour sale yesterday.  I do apologise that I don’t have a tutorial for you to download as it went off in the mail yesterday.

I stamped my image direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS in Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured with Stampin’ Blends Rich Razzleberry & Daffodil Delight.  I applied Clear Wink of Stella to the bottom parts of the petals.  I love it when I can use 2 different colours to colour my flowers – it seems to make them more real somehow.

The sentiment is from One Big Meaning Stamp Set & was stamped direct onto the card front in Memento Tuxedo Ink.  I created a “frame” around the images with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker before layering onto a piece of Daffodil Delight CS & then to the Base Card – Very Vanilla Note Card.

To complete the card I applied Candy Dots – Brights & Regals (retired) to the front.  You could easily replace with current Embellishments & colour with the Stampin’ Blends.

If you pop back tomorrow I will share with you another of the cards created using the same set & supplies.

Until next time, Happy Stampn’
