A Little Shimmer Paint

I seem to be stuck on copper these days. But why not? It’s all so beautiful. Today’s card, which is part of Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Hop, features lots of copper elements. My favorite is the Copper Shimmer Paint.

Design Notes for Shimmer Paint Card:

Yes, it’s true, another Diagonal Tri-fold card. I do love this fold. After making the base, I cut a piece of Copper Foil, 4″ x 5 1/4″, then cut it on the diagonal. The next piece, Merry Merlot, was cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″. Then I embossed it with the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder. The next step was to use the Copper Shimmer Paint with a Sponge Dauber and lightly highlight the design. Finally, I cut the piece on the diagonal and added it to the card front.

For this Tri-Fold, I decided to use a belly band to keep it closed. I made it with some Copper Foil and Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon. I added the bow after I wrapped it around the card. The sentiment is from the Friendly Expressions stamp set. The inside is pretty simple, just a sentiment.

Petal Palette for Global Design Project

I resisted the very strong urge to make a Christmas card. This week’s challenge over at Global Design Project is a color challenge, one of my favorites. The colors very politely yelled “Christmas”! But, I need some thank you cards. So thank you cards it is!

Design Notes Petal Palette Card:

This is a color combination that can’t miss. I think you can see how I felt a Christmas card would be perfect with these colors. But, I restrained myself! Time for the Stamparatus. I only inked the “Thank You” stamp once as I moved down the page using the hinge technique. I added a column of dots on the card stock then added some on the Crumb Cake card base to tie it all together.

Next, I stamped the flowers with some Crumb Cake ink. Then, I used a Blender Pen and ink to color in the flowers and leaves. No fussy cutting needed as i was able to use one of the dies from the Petals and More Thinlits Dies set. Finally, I popped those flowers up on Dimensions, layered and I was done. (Measurements for the layers: Whisper White – 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″, Tranquil Tide – 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ and Merry Merlot – 3 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ ) Oh, to finish it off, I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers.

It’s Bouquet Blooms and Thank You

Bouquet Blooms is a lovely stamp set. Lots of nice images and some good sentiments. I realized that it had been sitting on my stamp shelf and was prbably feeling a bit neglected. I remedied that today.

Design Notes for Bouquet Blooms Card:

I took a little spin on the sketch by turning it on its side. As I often do, I selected the colors based on the piece of Designer Paper I had selected with. Don’t you love that combination of Blackberry Bliss and Crushed Curry? Wish I could say I thought of it myself but, I did get it from the paper. I little stamping and some die cutting and I was done. #simplestamping!

Are you familiar with the Bouquet Blooms stamp set and Framelits. here’s a look. There’s so much there! It’s a great Bundle, very versatile.

Copper…Can You Have Too Much?

I seem to have a “thing” for copper these days. If there is a product that has copper in it, or on it, I buy it! And, I use it. Today’s card features three copper products. Can you tell which ones they are?

The inspiration for this card came from a beautiful card by Louise Sharp, one of the design team members over at Global Design Project. Click on the icon below and go over to see the designer’s and participant’s cards.

Global Design Project, #GDP164

Design Notes for Copper Card:

As much as I love the colors of Louise’s card, I decided to change them up in my card. The fall theme seemed to run through my mind. I used the Seaside Embossing folder to add some texture to the piece of Crushed Curry. Nice, but it needed something else. Copper Shimmer Paint! I used a Sponge Dauber to spread some color and bring out the embossing. The Copper Foil Sprig and Gold Glimmer leaf were tied together with some Copper Trim. So, there you have it, three copper products. I stamped the sentiment on some Crushed Curry card stock, cut it out with one of the Framelits from the Stitched Labels Framelits set. Then I cut a piece of Copper Foil to go behind and around the sentiment…one more little copper touch!

Thanks With Wishing You Well

I try to send my customers a hand made card each time they place an order with me. Last month I used the beautiful Wishing You Well stamp set for these cards.

Did you notice, I didn’t put any sentiment on the front? I think this card could be used for so many occasions, just add a sentiment on the inside and done.

Design Notes for Wishing You Well Card:

Well, I think it’s hard to choose, but maybe my favorite thing about this card is the color combination.

Maybe I’m beginning to overuse Blackberry Bliss. No, forget I said that.
Look carefully at the bow. Isn’t it amazingly real looking. Stampin’ Up! has developed a new type of stamp they call “Distinktive”. It adds more depth and detail.

This stamp set is one you will use year round. Here are some cards from the Stampin’ Up! Website, using these stamps. Notice that one of these cards is for Christmas.  Aren’t they beautiful?
