Amazing Copper Party

Stampin’ Up never ceases to thrill me with their Sale-a-Bration offerings…and 2018 is no different! This set is called Amazing You and is free with any product purchase of $50. There’s even a set of matching dies called Celebrate You that are available, too! I thought this color combo of Island Indigo and Pool Party was perfect with the bold splash of copper embossing powder, foil sheets and ¼” trim. I am so happy with this card!

Happy Early Caffeine Burst

A friend’s Birthday is right around the corner and I felt the Coffee Cups framelits would be perfect for her. I’ve been using up a lot of my Designer Series Paper lately in my efforts to #cutitdonthoardit, but I was really keeping a tight grip on this particular sheet of coffee rings. I just love it as the background and I’m so glad I used it, along with some Color Theory DSP for the cup. There’s a lot of dimension going on here, as I popped up the Crumb Cake oval, the cup, the sleeve and the lid. I think it allows the thickness of the Bitty Bow to fit in quite well. The Magnetic Platform is a dream come true, cutting out the shapes without the dies moving on me. I hope my friend likes her card as much as I enjoyed making it!

P.S. Big thanks to Hunter for telling me to put the ribbon behind the oval. I struggled a little with that placement!

Simple Touch of Sympathy

Unfortunately, there are times in our lives that we need to make sympathy cards. I prefer floral cards with a small spot of color. I enjoy sponging color onto the wooden Touches of Nature Elements. Just make sure you protect your table. Use a scrap of paper and sponge onto the wooden piece while it’s laying on it. If you try to hold it while sponging, the ink will not cover it completely. This card also uses a couple retired products, but you can always substitute similar ribbon and Designer Series Paper.

Triple Time Wreath

I have been intrigued by the Triple Time stamping technique for several years now. For some reason or another, I never got around to trying it. I am so in love with the Painted Harvest stamp set and started seeing wreaths made with it everywhere online. I thought it would be a perfect technique to allow for the focus to be on the wreaths. I doubled the linen thread to make the cutest little bow. Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler are beautiful classic Christmas colors. I am so happy with how it turned out!
