Happy New Year

I just had to make a card with the stamp I purchased last year from the 2009 holiday mini.  I have not had a chance to use it until now.  I really like this stamp.  I haven’t seen too many stamps that celebrate New Years and so I grabbed it while it was available.

This was created using Night of Navy Card stock stamped on with Whisper White Craft Ink. I heat set the craft ink using my Heat tool to prevent smearing.  Then framed it in Whisper White Card stock.  Then I used a second layer of Night of Navy Card stock embossed using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder on my Big Shot Machine.  I then adhered that my card base made in Whisper White Card stock.  I used the beautiful Organza Ribbon to tie a knot on the front.  I love this ribbon — so shiny and goes beautifully with so many things –”a must have” staple in my ribbon collection.

This is a very simple card but the white ink on a dark color makes for a good contrast.

Hope you have a wonderful new year too and you was able to ring it in with someone you  love.

Let It Snow

This is a good card for January – at least where I live as the snow is piled high and it is very cold this time of year.

I actually made this card several months before deciding to become a demonstrator and creating my blog and so I used items that are not SU, but SU makes very similar colors of card stock so this is easily replicated.

This was created on a Marina Mist Card base.  Using the Serene Snow Flakes stamp set I stamped snowflakes at the top randomly in Whisper White Craft ink and heat set them and then used my Crumb Cake ink to stamp a few more. I stamped on white card stock with my Basic Black ink the “Let it Snow” from the Big on Christmas Stamp set.  This I colored with my markers and cut out to add later.  I then took  a band of light brown (Use Crumb Cake) and punched a 1 3/4 inch circle in it to insert a treat cup.  I filled it with some artificial snow.  I attached a strip of Whisper White Card stock punched with my Scallop Edge Border punch.  I used my paper piercing tool on this to add interest to it. This was attached along the brown card stock before adhering to the card base.  I made some stick arms for my snowman out of Chocolate Chip Card Stock — The snowflake punch would have made this much easier.  I glued all the pieces together and tied a small ribbon (non-SU) around it by cutting a small slit in the fold at the top of the card.  Use Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, or Whisper White ribbon for a nice finish.

Valentine Charm

I got my daughter and myself the Simply Adorned Charm necklaces for Christmas.  It will be fun to see what we can create to wear.  This is the 1″ x 1- 1/4″ size.  I put together this for the upcoming Valentine Holiday but it is cute to anytime of the year. The fact that these are made like a locket is the cool part.  Just slip in a different creation and you have a whole new theme and look.

I used the Real Red Brights Patterns DSP for my background.  Then on one side I stamped directly on the paper in Basic Black ink using the Large Tag Punch set. I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the small little heart for and  accent and added interest.

On the other side and where the glass is beveled I stamped on Whisper White card stock with Real Red ink.  For this I used the Love You Much stamp set.  You can cut the  heart out but the Heart to Heart punch makes it quick and easy to get a nice trim job.  I love the coordinating punches and stamps!  For added interest on this side again used the Dazzling Diamonds glitter and then just glued it on the paper.

Finishing touch:  A piece of 5/8″ Real Red Satin ribbon tied just above the charm on the chain.

Hello world!

This is the beginning of a new adventure.  Looking forward to the challenge and opportunity to share ideas with you.  I welcome comments and your ideas as well.
