Playing along with the Global Design Project once again this week. This week’s challenge was a CASE the Designer. Brian King’s cute winter card was our inspiration.
I decided to follow along with Brian’s snow theme.
This card uses a combination of products from several stamp companies. The adorable sledding bunny is Lawn Fawn’s Winter Bunny stamp and coordinating die. I paper pierced the scarf with a piece of DSP. The hills were made with a landscaping framelit from W plus 9 and the Cardstock and DSP is Stampin’ Up! I embossed my snowy hills with SU’s Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
I just followed my fun winter theme to the inside of the card using a retired SU sentiment. The snowflakes are from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set. This inspiration came from another Brian King card.
I also gave the envelope a little attention with some snowflakes and DSP.
Thanks so much for looking in on my card today and I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving today!
Playing along today with the Pals Paper Arts challenge and getting another one in under the wire. Here is the sketch for this week:
When I first looked at this sketch, I thought it would be a cinch. Maybe I was over-thinking it, but when it came time to make a card, I was stumped! That’s why this card is just going to make it in the challenge on time. It was stuck in my head too long!
WARNING: No stamps were inked in the making of this card!
I simply turned the sketch and made the card a non-standard size to accommodate the three Santas. The card is 4 1/4″ x 7″. I used the heavy stock Whisper White cardstock for the base and a piece of DSP from the Brights Designer Series Stack in Old Olive.
I really dug into my “tool” box for this card. I used the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies for the Merry sentiment and cut it out with the Red Foil paper. Then used the 1 3/4″ Scallop Punch along with the 1 3/8″ circle punch to frame the little Santas, which were cut from the super cute Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper. Each of the circles were popped with dimensionals.
Not sure why this sketch gave me so much trouble, as this card came together super fast.
Thanks for stopping by and wishing you a wonderful day.
Hello…hope you are having a somewhat relaxing Sunday given that it is the weekend before Thanksgiving. I am playing along with the Stamp, Ink, Paper sketch challenge this week and getting this project in just under the wire! Here is the sketch and it is a good one….
I saw a card created by Windy Ellard, who is in a stamping group I belong to and absolutely loved it. You can see Windy’s card here. I thought the design would work well with this sketch but I did change it up a bit.
I created the centerpiece using the Vintage Leaves stamp set and coordinating dies along with a sentiment from the hostess set, Six Sayings. This is my favorite stamp in the set but the others are really great too. I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and fussy cut it and then matted it in Blackberry Bliss and fussy cut again. The leaves are stamped in Crumb Cake. The cardstock is Blackberry Bliss and the DSP is from the Farmers Market Designer Series Paper . I popped the leaves and sentiment with dimensionals for a little umph!
I added a little DSP to the inside of the card and stamped the front of the envelope as well as adding some DSP to the envelope flap. I really love gingham and love this paper. I am actually running low on it and will have to order another package soon, just for the checks!
Hope you enjoyed today’s project and have a wonderful rest of the weekend.
Playing along with the Global Design Project again this week and the challenge is Christmas. So many possibilities…..
While I do love making and sending cards, I especially love making 3D gifts to personally hand out. So that’s what I thought I would make for this challenge.
For my little gift, I used so many of my favorite products from the Holiday catalog. First, the fabulous Square Pillow Box Thinlits Die is such a versatile die that I have used many times since purchasing it. This die is scheduled to retire with the Holiday catalog but will still be working hard in my craft room! It made such a pretty box using red foil cardstock. However, I think the star of the project is the beautiful wreath from the Peaceful Wreath stamp set. This wreath is really easy and fast to color, not to mention relaxing too. I used some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details on the berries to give it a little more sparkle. Lastly, the sentiment is from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Die. I did use a die from the Circles Collection Framelits to cut a window and used a window sheet so my matching Hershey Kisses would show.
I think this is literally such a sweet gift that would be sure to please anyone. What I like most is how people who do not enjoy this fantastic hobby, are so impressed by these little projects. But we all know how much fun they are to make, too!
I have so many more ideas for this Pillow Box, so I better get on that…..stay tuned!
Thanks for checking in on my project today. Hope you enjoyed it!
