Still Scenes - Sneak Peek!

There's always one stamp set that catches your eye in every catalogue.  The Still Scenes stampset and coordinating dies definitely caught my eye.  I love to make shaker cards and this is perfect for that - Stampin' Up! has added the Snow Globe Shaker Dome to make shaker cards even easier!

Check out this card I made.


I added the Snowflake Sequins and Ice Stampin' Glitter.   Can you see the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint on the tree?

Perfectly Plaid - Sneak Peek!

Today I'm sharing another sneak peek from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue - Perfectly Plaid.  I love how quick and easy this punch, Designer Series Paper and ribbon made this card.  Look Mom, no stamping!

I punched out 3 trees from the Perfectly Plaid Designer Series Paper and adhered them using Dimensionals to a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I added a piece of the 1/2" Classic Weave Ribbon that has sentiments embossed in Copper and adhered the piece to a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Copper Foil Sheet. Finally adhered to a card based made from Shaded Spruce cardstock!  How easy is that!



I love this ribbon!

Good Morning Magnolia

Today I'm sharing a quick and easy card featuring the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper and a sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.  I love using Designer Series Paper as the star of a card.  Not only is this a quick and easy way to make a card, but it makes the paper front and centre!  

Sometimes it is hard to cut into the beautiful Designer Series Paper - it's all so beautiful, but it belongs on cards and other projects and not on a shelf in your craft room!  Take some time today to make a card with Designer Series Paper in the starring roll!




Instructions

  1. Cut Mossy Meadow cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Designer Series Paper 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to card base using Snail.
  3. Stamp sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink and punch out using 2" Circle Punch.
  4. Punch out Star Burst from Mossy Meadow cardstock using Starburst Punch.
  5. Adhere stamped sentiment circle to starburst using Snail.
  6. Cut a 4" piece of ribbon and fold in half.
  7. Adhere to card base using Snail.
  8. Adhere Starburst circle to cardbase overlapping the ribbon using Snail.
