Embossed Picture Perfect Candles

The Picture Perfect Party suite on pages 4 and 5 of the Occasions catalog is so colorful and happy! This suite sure was named appropriately – the Designer Series Paper stack features double sided 6” x 6” paper with photographic images on one side! I loved the candles and wanted to preserve how long they were. I also wanted to use the “Happy” embossing folder from the Celebrations Duo. The bright colors coordinate perfectly and the Tutti Frutti sequins from the Tutti Frutti Suite on pages 28 and 29 have 3 colors that are also in the Picture Perfect Party suite! One card uses a Berry Burst sequin and one uses Pool Party. I think I’m liking the Pool Party one a little more. Which one do you like better?

Tailored Fresh Pears

Today I’m sharing with you the thank you cards for my Birthday gifts. It’s been awhile since I pulled out the Envelope Punch Board and I sure have missed it! It’s so fun making envelopes to match your cards. Here’s a set of 6 cards with envelopes that only use 2 sheets of cardstock and 2 sheets of Designer Series Paper (DSP), along with some scraps of neutral. The card bases are cut 3” x 8” and scored at 4”. This adorable size requires a 6” square piece of DSP to make an envelope. So, we’re using one full piece and half of the second for the envelopes. That leaves half a sheet to cut front layers. These cards feature some retired products, but I just love pears (especially Anjou!) and wanted to use the lovely Fruit Stand DSP.

Playful Bermuda Celebration

I am all about the challenges this week…today’s card is my entry for SUO Challenge 192: Fun With Just One Color! I chose Bermuda Bay since it’s such a vibrant, fun color. This card features debossing with the Celebrations Duo embossing folder. I bought the Happy Celebrations stamp set with the coordinating folders quite a while ago…and kicking myself because this is the first time I’ve played with them. The debossed effect is super cool! I made my own background with the bubbles stamp from the Playful Backgrounds set and topped it off with some Brights Enamel Shapes and retired ribbon.

Here’s a look at the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folders, to help give a better idea of the debossed look:

Epic Rainbow of Sneakers

Today I got my hands on the Stampin’ Blends…and couldn’t wait to give them a try. Definitely a learning curve, but one I’m willing to take the time to master! Below is an assortment of adorable 3” x 3” cards.  I used standard Whisper White for the stamped piece, but decided to use the Thick Whisper White for the card base. It really makes a difference.  I wanted to give several Blends colors a try and thought the sneakers would be fun for my club member thank you cards (I like to give a thank you to each of them with every order). I feel like Epic Celebrations isn’t getting the recognition it deserves…it’s a darling set and I can’t wait to make a card with the headphones and guitar! It’s part of the Sale-a-Bration going on right now, so the only way you can get your hands on this  set is with a minimum purchase of $50 and the stamp set is FREE!

So, here’s my version of a fun Valentine! You can see the Sparkle Embossing Folder detail even better on the top view. And the icing on the cake?

Tranquil Tailored Gentleman

The True Gentleman suite on pages 44 and 45 in the Occasions catalog is an absolutely perfect collection to make dashing masculine cards. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. The richness of the Tranquil Tide with Night of Navy is elegant and smart. The punch makes multiples a snap and the buttons bring it all together. I have made several already and I am just getting started! These cards feature lines I scored using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to add a little extra to the Tranquil Tide Strip. I used Fast Fuse to glue it down due to the added dimension of the button. And the final perfect little detail is adding glue with the Fine Tip Glue Pen to the lenses of the glasses to make them shine like glass. I’ve included a close up photo for you. I am entering this in the Watercooler Wednesday WWC153 – Gail’s Masculine “Anything Goes” challenge. Since it’s a suite that’s new to me, I’m also adding it to the Just Add Ink challenge, too!

A big thank you to my mother, Jean, for gifting this suite to me for my Birthday – I love it!
