Two for Tuesday: Layouts & Designer Papers!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have two different layouts for you that will showcase the designer paper! We’re going to start with the ever so popular “Banner” card layout …

 

I decided to use the “Whole Lot of Lovely” Designer Series paper … it is soooo pretty, and I can’t believe I have not used this one yet!! The patterns in this package work so nicely together for our banner layout.

I added the “Tranquil Tide” ribbon for my bow. I also used the Tranquil Tide cardstock to cut out my “amazing” from the exclusive 2018 Sale-A-Bration “Celebrate You Thinlits Dies” and “Amazing You” Stamp Set!

Our next template is fun and simple, and can be more fun or have a touch of elegance depending on the designer paper and accessories you choose…

For my second card, I’ve decided to have go with a more elegant card and use the same “Whole Lot of Lovely” Designer Series paper!

Simplicity at it’s finest … the core of your card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ sheet of designer paper. My greeting comes for the beautiful “Charming Café” stamp set found in our Occasions catalog and punched out using the 2″ Circle Punch.

Again … our bow was created by using the Tranquil Tide Ribbon.  Your card making can be so easy if you use simple layouts and use our designer papers to create with.

Hope you enjoyed today’s “”Whole Lot of Lovely” Designer Series paper used on two simple layouts.

 

Thanks so much for joining me today. Enjoy!

A Christmas Bridge Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

As promised … I’m back to share the “Bridge Card” that my Stamp Club members made this month!

I picked 2 of my favorite bundles to create this amazing card, the Brightly Lit Christmas, Carols of Christmas and added the Detailed Gate as my bridge!

My color pallet consists of Whisper White, Soft Sky, Basis Black, Garden Green and a pop of Real Red.

We used the little spots stamp from Brightly Lit Christmas to create snow on our Soft Sky background. The trees are from the Cardfront Builder Thinlets Dies from the Carols of Christmas Bundle (same with the deer).

Since the gate is not wide enough to reach the ends of the card … We used the lamp posts to anchor the card and hid the seam of the gate.

I’m pretty proud of this card … and I love the look of the gate as my bridge. Simple to create and it folds down to slide right into your envelope!

Thanks for stopping back today, enjoy your Friday …

Have a great weekend!

Today’s Stampin’ Supply List …

Could this be any cuter? The Be Merry Kit produces beautiful rosettes with all materials included in the kit to create 12 designs. You will adore this kit and the ease with which you can make ornaments, gift tags, décor, and more.

Make the season merry with festive rosette ornaments that you can hang on your tree or wreath or use as gift tags or on packages. This all inclusive kit makes 12 rosettes, 6 each of 2 designs. Rosettes are prescored and folded for quick assembly.

I’m using mine as tags on packages! Just write in their name instead of stamping the greeting! Then they will have a keepsake ornament for the tree next year!

Season Like Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

The Season Like Christmas Stamp Set is perfect for stampers who want the flexibility to create something simple and cute, while also having elements that lend well to a more intricate or advanced design when they are really in the elaborate crafting zone.

This is a layered set that can be used to create dimensions within your card. By stamping the trees in darker and lighter shades, you can create a forest wonderland, as in the sample above.

 

Whether you use all the items and make a detailed and extravagant card, or simply choose your favorite to make an understated gift tag, you are sure to end up with a beautiful and festive creation.

Thank you for allowing me to share a part of your day with you!
