Love You Still for Freshly Made Sketches #324

Freshly Made Sketches #324

Participating in a challenge is a good way to get your creative juices flowing. This sketch by Narelle Farrugia at Freshly Made Sketches is so clean and simple. I struggle with simple cards because I love embellishments.

Love You Still

Love You Still has some lovely images and the sentiments are spot on for a wedding or anniversary card. I can even see these sentiments working well for a baby card. So sweet! 

My Card:

Created by Ginny Harrell using Love You Still by Stampin' Up! Ginny Harrell @ Celebrate-the-journey.com #stampn' up! #2018 Occasions Catalog

Spring Foil Designer Series Paper – Sale-a-bration

The Spring Foil Designer Series Paper is one of the new offerings during Sale-a-bration. This paper can be yours for free with a $50.00 purchase. It gave me the perfect inspiration for this card. Mixing gold, silver and copper is very trendy. You can mix and match the papers and ribbons for a special on-trend card.

Tips and Tricks:

Start with a Smoky Slate card base. Heat emboss the sentiment using Gold Embossing Powder on Very Vanilla cardstock. The flourishes are die cut using the Flourish Thinlits. Use wax paper when cutting detailed elements. The wax paper helps the cardstock pop right out of the thinlit. One quick swipe with the Big Shot Die Brush will get all the tiny chads out of the thinlit. Layer the Gold Foil, DSP, ribbon and focal elements to add dimension and texture. Your beautiful card is complete.

It is so good to be back creating and stamping! I sure did miss my crafty time. Holidays are always fun, but coming home is special also. Now, if the laundry fairy would visit it would be even better!

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy stamping!

Magical Day for FMS#318

I hope everyone had a glorious Christmas Day. Now we get to continue the celebration with the 12 Days of Christmas. Not the song but the real 12 Days! If you have ever wondered about the 12 Days of Christmas you can read more here. The short version is this: The 12 days of Christmas is the period that in Christian theology marks the span between the birth of Christ and the coming of the Magi — the three wise men. It begins on December 25 (Christmas) and runs through January 6 (the Epiphany, sometimes also called Three Kings’ Day).

We are visiting family in Denver. It is always fun to see our Grands and enjoy family fun. Last night we played a new game called Werewolf. We weren’t very good at it!

 Today I have a card to share that uses a bundle from the new Occasions Catalog. It will be available starting January 3, 2018.

This stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorites sets! It is a set I would not really have considered purchasing, but I won it at OnStage. It just goes to show you how most stamp sets can win you over once you start playing with them.

I used the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches #318. I turned my card horizontal though. I love the large area of “white space” at the bottom of the card. It’s different from my usual style.

Thanks for stopping by today. If you are with family take time to slow down and enjoy!

Party Pandas for FMS#316

Happy Friday!

They are predicting snow in Georgia today. I hope it snows just a little bit because I love snow, but not enough to cause issues. But….Snow always causes issues in the south!

I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches today. FMS #316 is clean and simple.

Here is my card:

Do you notice some new products on the card? Party Pandas is a set you can get for free during the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration. I know you are going to want this one! These pandas are adorable.

I also borrowed a sentiment from a new set – Picture Perfect Birthday. I wanted the pandas to be tossing around confetti. Both of these sets will be available January 4, 2018. Start your wish list today.

Thanks for stopping by today. If you need me I’ll be playing in the snow!
