It’s All About the Frosted Floral

There are lots of Designer Papers I like, some I really like. But, Frosted Floral has to be one of my all time favorites. The colors are beautiful for most any season and the shimmery white finish is just amazing. I decided to create a card that would be easy to make and highlight this gorgeous paper.

Can you see that I actually was able to show two of the beautiful patterns?

 

Design Noted for Frosted Floral Card:

I think this card is really a good choice for a beginning stamper – paper, ink, stamps. Ok, I added a little bit of Linen Thread and used a punch, but really, it’s a very easy card! The main piece of designer paper measures, 4″ x 5 1/4″, the smaller piece is 1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″. The Blackberry Bliss is 1 13/8″ x 5 1/4 and the Whisper White is 1 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. Stamp, punch, add some Dimensionals and you are done!

Winter is Coming – Really!

Do you remember the game, Tic – Tac – Toe? Well, over at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday, we are doing a card making version, Tic – Tac – Tuesday. I made this Winter card as a sample for this challenge.

Here’s the banner for the challenge, I did the vertical – Foil, Winter, and Plaid.Go on over to the site later today (yes, Monday) and see all the other designer samples.

Design Notes for Winter Card:

It all started with plaid. I knew I had some of one of the plaid papers from Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper package. Winter? BRRR just came to my mind. I love using the Large Letter Framelits, so it all just fell together.

With this picture you can see the sentiment from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set on the inside.

And can you ever go wrong with a z- fold card? This is actually a double z fold. I guess I just needed more room for all the r’s! I used the Softly Falling embossing folder on the Garden Green Card Stock to add a little texture. After the embossing, I added just a hint of white with a dauber and some Craft White ink. A few Silver Glimmer snow flakes finished off the card.

Nothing Sweeter for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday

It’s Tuesday. Try Stampin’ on Tuesday has a new challenge today. I created one of the samples for the challenge using the Nothing Sweeter stamp set. I used some of my favorite Designer Paper, Under the Mistletoe! (Oh, please scroll to the end to find out all about today’s big sale!)

Design Notes for Nothing Sweeter Christmas Card:

What a fun card this was to create. I’ve been itching to use my new Nothing Sweeter stamp set so this was the perfect opportunity. Stamp first with the Old Olive ink, then decorate with Real Red. Could it be any easier?

Cutting out the trees was easy with the Sweetly Stitched Framelits Dies. The strip along the side was just a plain strip of card stock transformed by one of the Sweetly Stitched Framelits. Can’t you imagine using it for lots of great projects?

Two scraps of the Under The Mistletoe paper were left on my craft table but found a purpose. Well, two purposes!

Frosted Floral for Fun Fold Friday

I think that you know that each Friday I try to feature a different fold for a card. In addition, I write up a photo tutorial to go along with it so that you can try out the folds yourself. This week I have a variation on a fold I did a few weeks ago. The fold is a Z fold but it’s a bit different because of the way I used the Designer Series Paper. In a spate a real creativity, I’m calling it Designer Series Paper Z fold.

I was also inspired to create this by this week’s challenge over at Global Design Project. Hop on over there to see some beautiful cards!

I think this card is both fallish and shows some love!

 

Design Notes for Frosted Floral Card:

Z fold cards are just fun. This one is a little tweek on that and is equally fun. I used Designer Paper to create the z fold. This works fine with most Designer Papers but is especially good with the more sturdy papers. I must say, this card is perhaps a little busier than I usually present. The Designer Paper has a great pattern of flowers, then I stamped flowers on the sentiment piece. But, I think it works! Good to step outside my box from time to time! The flower stamps from the Abstract Impressions stamp set are simple stamped. the set has other stamps that you can use to add more depth and details but I went with just the single stamping. Call me a rebel. The directions for the fold are in the tutorial. Designer Series Paper Z Fold Card

Congrats and Keep Crafting Forever

It’s always fun to make a Congratulations card. I have a downline who is close to promoting. I want to be ready with congratulations!  The Crafting Forever stamp set was a natural choice for this card.

Design Notes for Crafting Forever Card:

Well, I had fun with some of my favorite products when I made this card. First, I heat embossed the sentiment and the pot of brushes – always a fun time for me. Then I used Stampin’ Blends to color in the brushes. But, my newest fun item also showed up. I used some of the Shimmer Paint on the card stock. You may know that many of the sheets of paper in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper pack have a pearl finish. I love that. However, I realized that the two papers I chose for this card did not have the pearl finish. Shimmer Paint to the rescue. Shake, dauber – pearl finish! Now I have Pearly paper whenever I want with the swish of a dauber.

I also added some of the Designer Paper to the inside and to the envelope.
