The Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies (#139670) have been used to cut the Whisper White card (#106549). This set will be retired after this catalogue so if you are wanting these Thinlits don't forget to order them before they are gone.




I used Soft Sky (#131292) for the base card and I added Vellum from the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack (#139594). I loved how this worked for the sky. Silent Night is from Jingle All The Way stamp set (#139904) and stamped with Soft Sky ink (#131181). How simple is that!

Papillon Potpourri

Hello,

A simple card with butterflies. The small butterflies have been stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and White Embossing powder (#109132).

I stamped this butterfly twice - once on to the card and the other onto another piece of card and punched it with the Elegant Butterfly punch (#127526) then placed it over the one on the card. Of course I used Stampin' Dimensionals for this. I added 3 Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247) to the butterfly. These butterflies are from the Papillion Potpourri stamp set (#c123759, #w132058).

Lovely as a Tree reflection

Hi,

This is my first attempt at a reflection. I'm sure I could improve with a bit more practice but I am not real good with shading, but was reasonably happy with my first attempt.



The card I stamped on was Shimmery White (#121717). The trees from Lovely As A Tree Stamp set (#c127793, #w128655) were stamped with Early Espresso ink (#126974). To do the reflection, stamp onto a piece of acetate, then lining up the image with the inked image facing down on the card press onto the card. This gives a more subtle look which is what you want for the reflection. I sponged the sky and water with Soft Sky (#131181) and Marina Mist ink (#126962), and the grass with Wild Wasabi (#126959) and Old Olive (#126953). The sentiment from Tag Talk stamp set (#c134252, #w134249) was stamped with Marina Mist and punched with the Label Bracket punch (#132153), then attached to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The base card is Marina Mist (#121682).

Hope you are having a great weekend.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Guy Greetings

Hello ladies,

Time for a male card, it's been a while since I made one.




The base card is Night Of Navy (#106577) and I have used Very Vanilla (#106550) and Marina Mist (#121682) as well. You will find the anchor in the Guy Greetings stamp set (#c138828, #w138825, #137178). This was stamped with Night Of Navy ink (#126970), as was the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Everyone stamp set (#c139958, #w139171). A Framelit from the Cirles Collection (#130911) was used to cut the anchor, the edges were sponged and this was then attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Serene Silhouettes

Hello again,

Yesterday I starting making a card and it just wouldn't come together for me, so I gave up. (Yes it does happen to me too). Today I picked up the piece of card that I had stamped a background on and immediately I knew what I wanted to do and here is the finished card which only took minutes to put together - and nothing like I had in mind yesterday. 





I used Whisper White card (#106549), Basic Black (#121688) and DSP from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack (#138436). The background was stamped using Crushed Curry ink (#131173) and the stamp is from Work Of Art stamp set (#c134114, #w134111). This was stamped using the Stamping Off method which gave me the 3 different colours. Then I used the image from Serene Silhouettes stamp set (#c127324, #w132073) and stamped this with the Black Archival ink (#140931). This ink was also used to stamp the sentiment ( I just realised this is from a retired set) and I used the Washi Label punch (#138296) to punch this.

Have a great day.

Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Christmas Banner

Hi Ladies, 

This is the Christmas Banner we made at this months classes. A bit of extra work to make all the flowers but well worth it.



A close up -



And one of the ladies has pink and silver for her Christmas decorations so made this one- 



The flowers were made using the Reason For the Season stamp set (#p139730) and the co-ordinating Festive Flower Builder Punch (#139682). For these flowers I punched 8 of the Medium petals and 2 of the double petals for each flower. I used Cherry Cobbler card (#121681) and Ink (#126966). The pink one used Melon Mambo card (#119980) and ink (#126948). The Lots of Labels Framelits (#138281) were used to cut the banners. The card for this is Night Of Navy (#126970) and Whisper White (#106549). Smokey Slate card (#131179) was for base of the Joy banner. The Whisper White card was embossed with the Softly Falling embossing Folder (#139672). The letters for Peace were cut from Crushed Curry card (#131288) with an electronic cutter. Joy letters were from Melon Mambo card. The stars on the joy banner were cut from the Silver Glimmer Paper (#135314) using the Stars Framelits (#133723). The ribbon is Whisper White 5/8" Satin Ribbon (#134549). The banners and flowers were attached to the ribbon using hot melt glue. I used Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details (#124117) for the centre of the Cherry Cobbler flowers on the Crushed Curry centres. The Joy banner used Silver Glimmer Paper (#135314) for the centres.

That's all for another day.

Happy Stamping!

Layered Letters Alphabet

Hi,

The Photopolymer stamps in the Layered Letters Alphabet stamp set (#p138692) make it so easy to place the letters in the perfect place -even without the stamp-a-ma-jig, which I usually use for a lot of my stamping.



The base card is Rose Red (#108613) as is the DSP from the Regals Designer Series Stack (#138436). The rectangular shapes from the Layered Letters Alphabet were stamped with Crumb Cake ink (#126975) onto Very Vanilla card (#106550) and the letters were stamped with Rose Red ink (#126954). Birthday is from the Endless Birthday Wishes (#p140273). The butterflies were punched with the Elegant Butterfly (#127526) and Bitty Butterfly (#129406). The Glimmer Paper used for these butterflies are Dazzling Diamonds (#135315) and Silver (#135314). On the larger butterfly I stamped onto the glimmer Paper using the butterfly from Papillion Potpourri stamp set (#c123759, #w132058). The ribbon is Silver 1/8" ribbon (#132137). The bow was attached with Mini Glue Dots (#103683) and the butterfly with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Have a great weekend,
Happy Stamping!

Peaceful Pines

Hi,

When you are making lots of Christmas cards it's probably best to keep them quick and easy as this one is. You could also reduce the number of layers for an even quicker card.



I used Cherry Cobbler (#121681) and Whisper white card (#106549). The Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing folder (#139672) was used on the Whisper White card. The presents were stamped with  Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966) and the Christmas Tree was stamped with Garden Green ink (#126973). Both these images are from the Peaceful Pines stamp set (#p139728). Of course I wouldn't be able to line up the presents as well as I did without the help of the Stamp-a-ma-jig (#101049).

As I said, a quick and easy card.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.
