Merry Monday... Black/Gold/Silver Card

Happy Tuesday,

Today's card was created for this week's Merry Monday Challenge. 

 
 
My card:
 
 
I began with a Whisper White card base.  I then embossed another piece of white card stock using the Couture Creations Baubles embossing folder.  The gold and silver ornaments were embossed with the SU! Lacy Brocade folder, then die-cut using circle spellbinders.  The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping Elegant Christmas Sentiments, and was stamped in Basic Black ink.  A trio of coordinating bows on the ornaments finish off the details.

PP209....Cake Pop Birthday

Happy Sunday,

I have a fun card I put together for this week's The Papers Players.  This week is a Clean-and-Simple Child's Birthday theme challenge. 


 
 
My card:
 
 
I started out with Whisper White card base.  I created a yummy-looking cake pop.  I used 1 3/8" circle  punch to make the cake circle.  I then created the frosting with the negative part of the pink glittery card stock using the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Halloween punch.   I adhered a lollipop stick and attached a bow using pink/white Baker's Twine.  The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping The Sky's the Limit, and was stamped in Early Espresso ink.

PPA215... Happy Birthday to You!

Hey Everyone,

Today, I have a quick card using this week's color challenge over at Pal Paper Arts.  This week's colors are Strawberry Slush, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black - such a gorgeous combo, don't you agree?
08-14



 
I began with a Whisper White card base, and the layers are Basic Black card stock and patterned paper from MS Carnival Photo Mat Pad.  Using a rectangular spellbinder, the middle of the patterned paper was cut out.  The flower and sentiment were then adhered to the white case base.  I picked the beautiful two-step SU! Stippled Blossoms as my focal image.  I stamped the solid flower in Strawberry Slush ink and used the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement to overstamp the outline flower in the same ink color.  I did the same for the leaves, but in Pear Pizzazz ink.  The sentiment is from IBS Small Fancy Labels 18, and was stamped in Basic Black ink.  A collection of pearls and sequins added the perfect amount of glam.

Exploring Cricut and More...Christmas Card

Hey Everyone,

Today I am popping in with a quick share; a card I made for this week's Exploring Cricut and More. 
They are having a Christmas in July Blog Hop!


My card has a Whisper White card base, followed by red card stock.  I cut the Christmas trees at 2.5" using the Joys of the Season cartridge, and the cute reindeer at 1.5" using Create a Critter cartridge.  I then used some fun flock to add fluffy snow to the edges of the slope (sorry, it's hard to see).  I stamped the holiday sentiment from Inspired by Stamping Elegant Christmas Sentiment in Basic Black ink.  Blue rhinestones and red Baker's Twine finish off the details.
