Timeless Tags Card & Class Annoucement

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How are you on this fine Monday?  Me? I’m great … starting a much needed vacation! So while I got my computer running better, I’m power blogging so I don’t miss a beat while I’m gone.  I’ve got some great cards to show you this week!

Today we’re going to step it up a notch.  Yesterday I share two cards with you that used the “Falling in Love” Designer paper and the “That’s the Tag” Bundle, so today I took the pink card and I’m going to show you how you can “step it up” ….

We are taking the pretty flower cut from the Timeless Tags Framelits Die and we’re going to mount it to a piece of coordinating cardstock – Sahara Sand and then cutting out the same image in two different colors so we can “piece” those pieces into our original frame. Here are the results ….

000_3965

Isn’t that pretty! The colors coordinate so nicely especially against that Bokeh background on our designer paper.

I have some great stampin’ tips for you when using this technique.  Mount the frame of your image onto your mat before you begin … I use the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Set it aside for now.

When die cutting your colors: Only use a small piece of Pear Pizzazz to cut out your leaves, you do not need the entire flower, pop out the pieces you need and mount them directly into your frame. Again, I use the Fine Tip Glue Pen and put the glue into the recessed area of your frame.

Next, I used Blush Blossom for my petals – I die cut the entire image.  DO NOT POP OUT YOUR PIECES (Petals) Take them out as you assemble them, that way you will know exactly where that piece belongs.  When you are all done with your petals, you can pop out the other pieces and save your frame for the next card!

Lastly, I cut the center of the flower with a scrap piece of Pear Pizzazz. I also did a bit of paper piercing around the edge of my flowers center.

You could use a yellow if you wish, however I thought using just these two colors worked best and really brought out the sparkly color from out Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper Frame.

Hope you enjoyed my “Stepped Up” Timeless Tag card.  If you would like to learn how to do this “Hands On”- I’m hosting a TIMELESS TAG class on Wednesday, February 15th. / Cost $60

Simply Sunday: Christmas Stocking

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It appears as if I have been distracted by this beautiful Wisconsin weather today! A perfect day with all the windows in the house open, plus a planning session for my upcoming Holiday Catalog Launch Party and Holiday Retreat! But I’m here now and sharing a simply cute card using one of the bundles that will be featured at these upcoming events!

Our color pallet was based off the “Presents & Pinecones” Designer Series Paper which mats the “focal point” … the stocking and our greeting: Cherry Cobbler, Mint Macaron and Whisper White.

Who doesn’t love stockings by the fire at Christmas? This is the perfect bundle … with so many options to create your stockings, you wont’ have to make any two the same! You can stamp any of the 5 designs, you can use the different textures included in the framelits, or you can simply use the basic stocking die to cut out a stocking from any of your favorite designer papers! SO MUCH FUN to play with 🙂
