JustRite Mums

I have a very quick post to present today...using JustRite small Cling "Mums."  I colored the mums with Copic Sketch markers then mounted them upon a decorator paper background from Kaisercraft's "Tea Break" pad.

A Spellbinder A2 Scalloped Borders 2 die, cutting both layers, adds interest. 

A Kaisercraft Sparklet in Coral adds bling.

This card would be great for a birthday or thank you...just add your sentiment to the interior of the design.

Peace Love Joy Christmas Tag

I had some scraps lying on my stamping table, so decided to put together a quick Christmas package tag.

I began with some craft cardstock, then layered it up with some of Simple  Stories "Cozy Christmas" decorator that pad...have been enjoying many of the prints!

A border of May Art's 1.5" Wired Burlap with Lace adds some texture, perfect to layer a Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia bloom upon. The bloom has a glitter center "Simple Stories Cozy Christmas Enamel Dot."

The ribbon is May Art's 3/4" Ivory Canvas Print -Peace Love Joy- a fun way to add your sentiment!

Beautiful May Art's 1.5" Ivory Silk Ribbon tops the gift tag.

Holly Berry Sparkle

Loving this 12" X 12" My Minds Eye "Joyous Paper and Accessory Kit." It has a lot of glimmer and gleam, as well as a mix of vintage and up to date prints. Don't be surprised if you see this coming up again soon! All MME Joyous products are HERE.

I used Spellbinders Shapeabilites Die D-Lites in "Holly Twigs and Leaves" with Kaisercraft Rhinestones as berries to nestle in between the leaves. 

A bit more sparkle: May Art's Metallic String Ribbon in green and red.

Have a great week! Hope that your Christmas and holiday cards are coming along.

Flat and Shiny...

Flat, so it's a cinch to mail...shiny, so it has a bit of "extra!"

My wreath image is from JustRite's small cling "Christmas Wreath" also has a Christmas sentiment with the set which can be used for the inside of the card.

I stamped the wreath with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with Copic Sketch markers. I then used a Spellbinder Standard Circle (large) die to cut it to shape. I obtained the sheen with a Versamark Watermark Pad and Melt Art Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel UTEE, three layers melted with a heat gun. It adds an extra special touch to a fairly simple design.

The base is made up of layers from "A Cozy Christmas" by Simply Stories designer paper.

Breast Cancer Awareness Week at Stamp Simply Ribbon Store

Hello. The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is devoting this week to Breast Cancer Awareness. We've been inspired to create these cards in coordination with the Hope You Can Cling To event over at Splitcoaststampers. It's an annual event that SCS sponsors to raise awareness and to provide a variety of cards to the hospital of their choice, MD Anderson Cancer Center, to be used by the patients and their families. The SCS event involves challenges galore posted during the month of October with lots of prizes being offered. Be sure to check it out!

Here is my design for today:

My design uses product from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

I began with JustRite's Small Cling "Sweet Posies" set, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers. A Spellbinders Circle die is used to cut the sketch out and is popped up with Thermoweb 3D Foam Tape strips.

The background paper is MME "Chalk Studio." A border of Valentina Venise Lace and Rose Petal Seam Binding create a border. 

A Seam Binding bow, created with a Bow Easy, along with a "Stick Pin by Darsie in Shabby Chic Pink" and Prima's "Say it in Crystals Mini Swirl in Hello Pastel" adds the final touch.

Cocoa Snow

I had fun playing with JustRite's small cling "Snowflakes" set...both the snowflake image and sentiment are from the set and stamped onto basic cardstock using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink.

The image panel is die cut with Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Squares, and the sentiment with Spellbinders Shapeabilities 

The designer paper is Simple Stories Cozy Christmas. Fabulous colors and patterns!

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Twelve Days of a CAS Christmas...Simple, maybe not clean

Back with another design for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's Twelve Days of a Clean and Simply Christmas.

Strange title for this blog post, yes? Well, as it says, we have simple here but maybe not so clean! This is a fun stamp to use if you love to color...

My simple design uses just one beautiful stamp-- JustRite's Christmas Postcard Background; one short piece of lovely lace-- May Art's 5/8" Crochet Lace; and one Christmas-y colored blossom-- Maya Road's Red and Cream Ruffle Blossom; plus glitter, both fine and chunky (my glitter is old, the links are to similar glitters that can be used)--Stampendous Ultra Fine Clear Translucent Crystal Glitter and Tim Holtz Distress Glitter in Clear Rock Candy.

Simple, with an old fashioned, vintage feel. All linked product is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Be sure to check The Stamp Simply blog for the remaining 2 days of a CAS Christmas--posts going live at both 8 AM and 8 PM.
