You’re Priceless

My studio is finally finished at the new house and the cabinets are completely installed.  Well, to be honest, I still have a couple boxes sitting here to unload, but I have been working in it a few weeks now and am getting used to the layout and where I’ve put everything.  One thing I did was put my stamp set cases in drawers next to me.  One drawer holds all the current Annual Catalog stamp sets…and the one below holds the Holiday Catalog…along with the current embellishments.  Since the Holiday Catalog came out, I’ve been pretty much ignoring the Annual catalog.  My goal was to start using them again…along with the Designer Paper I’ve been hoarding.  I LOVE the gemstone paper in Naturally Eclectic…and finally cut into it for this card!  Of course, I had to get the You’re Priceless stamp set that went along with it!

 

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Tranquil Tide cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, the gemstone image was stamped randomly with Soft Sky Ink across the top half.  Then a 2-1/2 x 4 piece of Naturally Eclectic DSP was added to the bottom.
  • A piece of Island Indigo Ombre Ribbon hides the seam (and looks more like Tranquil Tide, don’t you think?)
  • The greeting from You’re Priceless was stamped with Night of Navy Ink on Soft Sky cardstock, then punched with the Everyday Label Punch.  It was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Two gem backgrounds were stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide Inks, then on top with Night of Navy Ink for the outline image.  They were cut out by hand and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The gemstones were colored with a little Wink of Stella to make them shimmer!

 

This would be a fun and easy Make & Take to do!  I know exactly who I’m sending this to!  Know what else is FUN…the Create with Connie and Mary Mini Session!  It is full of card ideas, a home decor project and craft fair idea!  You’ll LOVE it.  We open on the 11th!  So don’t forget to sign up!

CCMC469 You’re Priceless

It’s Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge.  We’re doing a color challenge this week with TWO of the new In Colors!

 

 

Here’s what I came up with using a new stamp set, You’re Priceless!  I love the gemstones in it and the fun greetings!  Watercolor wash backgrounds are SO popular right now, so I decided to use the Fresh Fig and Powder Pink inks in my background for a soft look under my gems.

 

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Fresh Fig cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, I used an AquaPainter and the Fresh Fig and Powder Pink Ink Pads with lots of water to scribble the “washed” colors.  Let dry.
  • Stamp over the wash with the gemstones in Powder Pink and Fresh Fig inks at the top and bottom diagonally.
  • A 1/2 x 4 piece of Night of Navy cardstock was cut with flag ends and placed across the front, then a 1/4 x 4 piece of Powder Pink cardstock across the center to soften it.
  • You’re Brilliant was stamped with Night of Navy ink.
  • The diamond outline was cut from Dazzing Diamonds Glimmer Paper and the detail cut from Silver Glimmer Paper with the Eclectic Layers Thinits.  It is popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • A few Glimmer Dots are randomly placed on the background.

That’s it!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week with the color challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary.  AND…check out our August 2017 Mini Session that is coming soon!  We have a BONUS project with purchase using the Carols of Christmas stamp set, available now to customers…that you will LOVE!
