Ornamental Pine

I love Stampin’ Up!’s Ornamental Pine stamp set…really, really easy to make nice cards with it!  This card was made up from scraps on my desk (do they ever go completely away?), I never seem to make a dent in them.

 

Ornamental Pine 2

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Cherry Cobbler, folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Crumb Cake, a 1 x 4 piece of Under the Tree Specialty Designer Paper was added at the bottom.
  • I cut a Party Pennant die from Whisper White with a 1/2″ strip of the same DSP across the top.
  • On the pennant, the pine needles and branch were inked with Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso Markers and the pine cone with Chocolate Chip in the background.  Another pine cone was stamped with Early Espresso on Chocolate Chip and White Gel Pen accents added on top, cut out, then adhered next to the background pine cone.  The pennant was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Merry Christmas was stamped with Cherry Cobbler along the side.
  • Finally, some 1″ Cherry Cobbler Linen Ribbon was tied with Linen Thread and added to the front with Mini Glue Dots.

Amazing what putting together some scraps can do, right?  I just added the base Cherry Cobbler and the greeting…the rest was already on my desk!

Holiday Home

Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Home is just one of those stamp sets that I had to have the minute I saw it.  I loved how it had different elements for decorating them…kind of like the Cat’s Meow buildings I used to collect (and still have in my basement somewhere!)  I also loved the little Santa’s Sleigh and Reindeer and thought it could be used in so many different ways!  When I was working on my Flat, Fast and Fabulous Class last week, this idea came to me.  I discarded it for the class because it took longer than the requirement for mass producing, but it still was pretty quick to come together!

 

Holiday Home

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Pool Party, folded in half.
  • A 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Bermuda Bay was added on top.
  • Another 3 3/4 x 5 layer of Whisper White was added.
  • I cut a 2 x 3 1/2 piece of All Is Calm Designer Paper in the snowflake print, and stamped Santa’s sleigh and reindeer with Tuxedo Black Ink on it in the upper left corner.  (It does lighten quite a bit stamping it on the DSP.)
  • I added it to a 2 1/4 x 3 3/4 piece of Silver Glimmer Paper and placed it on the Whisper White layer.
  • I stamped the Holiday Home house with Tuxedo Black on scrap Whisper White and colored it with Crumb Cake, So Saffron and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Markers.  The wreath was stamped with Garden Green above the door.
  • I stamped the greeting with Tuxedo Black towards the bottom of the Whisper White, then added the House above it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Isn’t that a fun way to use that set?  I really liked how it turned out.

Making Spirits Bright

Does this card look familiar?  Remember this card HERE?  I told you at that time that I had a second version to share and I’m just getting around to it now!  lol!  Both have similar layouts, but the Gold Glimmer Paper is placed in different spots.  Which do you like better?  I do like the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder on this one!

 

Making Spirits Bright 2

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Whisper White, folded in half
  • The Garden Green layer is 4 x 5 1/4.
  • The Real Red layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 and embossed with the Lucky Stars Folder and the two left corners are rounded with the Corner Rounder Punch.
  • Nordic Noel Designer Paper is 1 x 4 and placed across the front.
  • The Making Spirits Bright cocktail is stamped with Black Stazon on Whisper White and colored with So Saffron, Real Red, Soft Sky and Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers.  It is cut with the Window Frame Framelit.
  • The Gold Glimmer Paper square is cut 1/4″ larger than the Framelit and layered behind, then popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

So two versions of this card…similar with colors and details, but different with the embossed stars versus the Confetti Star punch!  I like them both!

Look Up to Father

I didn’t get a chance to show this card earlier, made with Stampin’ Up!’s Look Up To Father stamp from the Spring Catalog, because it was my dad’s Father’s Day card and I didn’t want him to see it before he got it!  I really LOVE the greeting in it.  I’m sure this stamp will remain in my special stamps to keep!  And, combining it with Work of Art for this beautiful sunrise/sunset is perfect for him!  I’m not the originator of the sunset idea with Work of Art…I just adapted it for my card.

 

www.inkspiredtreasures.com

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Mossy Meadow, folded in half.
  • I added a 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Calypso Coral cardstock.
  • On the 3 3/4 x 5 layer of Whisper White, I stamped the tree from Look Up to Father with Black Stazon.  I darkened it even more by dotting on my Basic Black Marker to fill in some of the lighter areas of the tree…but was careful not to lose the airiness of the leaves.
  • I used the Work of Art stamps for the ground with Mossy Meadow Ink, the sun with Daffodil Delight and the sky with Calpyso Coral.
  • Next I used Soft Sky Ink and a sponge to give the appearance of sky in the background.
  • The greeting was stamped with Black Stazon in the lower right area and I added some bling with the trio of Calpyso Coral Candy Dots.

Looks surprisingly simple, right?  Well, I ruined about 2 full sheets of Whisper White trying to get everything lined up correctly!  lol!  But…I do love the outcome!
