Rockin’ the Celebration!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s Wednesday … Wow! And I’m hoping to WOW you with this next card. With just a little fussy cutting and our Bigshot we’ve got some real dimension and texture going on, on this card.

I am using the Epic Celebrations stamp set again and I’ve teamed it up with the Layer Squares and Shaped Stitched Framelits Dies along with the Picture Perfect Designer Paper again.  I’d like you to see the different looks you can create with the same items …

I found yet another pattern from the Picture Perfect designer paper that just shouts “celebration” so I thought what better to highlight that paper than to rock it out with the guitar.

Again, I used the Watercolor Pencils on both the guitar and the head set, earphones, what ever they are called now! LOL  Both were also popped up using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Speaking of dimensionals, I also used them to pop up the square window so it framed the greeting!  It’s so cool to see the layer on layer but it fits into a regular A2 size envelope.

The stars are from one of our framelit dies … it gave it a more “Rock Star” look.  I often use bits -n- pieces from other stamp sets or dies, it gives you more versatility and a greater value for your purchases.

Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me, and I hope you have enjoyed this card. I found this one a bit more gender neutral than yesterday’s card.

Have yourself a Happy Wednesday!

Epic -n- Awesome!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend. Mine was filled mainly with stamping … a Stamp Club on Saturday morning and a Stampin’ Party on Saturday afternoon, and some card designing on Sunday!

One of the cards I designed yesterday is the one I’ll be sharing with you today. I was having some fun with the Epic Celebrations stamp set … it is one of the Sale-A-Bration items you can get FREE with a qualifying purchase.

I began by stamping my guitars onto the Wood Textures Designer Series paper, cut them out and then sponged a little Crumb Cake ink onto my guitars … gives them a little dimension ….

Then I stamped the Sheet Music Background stamp onto some Very Vanilla cardstock … I sponged the musical paper as well because it ages it some and really highlighted the guitars.

I created my background by starting with a 4″x5-1/4″ piece of Bermuda Bay. Then I sprinkled some of the Brusho directly onto my cardstock and then spritzed it with water … I did not over saturate, I just wanted speckles!

Begin lightly “Less is more” … you can always add,  but sometimes it’s hard to take it back off. I did the same with my greeting on a piece of Very Vanilla.

I then cut my greeting out with the “Layering Ovals Framelits” and sponged the edge with the Crumb Cake as well.  The greeting, the music notes, and the entire card front are matted with the Basic Black Cardstock. The entire cardfront is adhered to a Very Vanilla back.

Check this out …

I really liked the way this turned out, I glazed (covered) the guitars with the glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen. Not only does the glue stiffen the paper but it highlights the grain of the “wood” grain paper. Love it!!

Sometimes you just gotta play and discover all the different things you can do with the products you have in your craft room!

Thank you for joining me today, it is appreciated!

Have a marvelous Monday ~

Simply Sunday: Epic Celebrations

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How is your weekend going? Hope you have some time to enjoy this mild weather (in the mid-west anyway)! Our East Coast stampers have been going through some wicked storms … we can all be happy that Spring is on it’s way.

I’m behind in my posts … so I’m busy working at catching up! I have my “Epic Celebrations” card for you today! It’s a simple card that highlights not only the Epic Celebrations stamp set but Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper ….

I started with the Berry Burst cardstock on which I stamped the guitar and the dots.

Then I took the Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist ink pads and sponged the colors onto the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper. It not only has the foil dots but is a glossy cardstock so sponging works beautifully!

The greeting was stamped onto Whisper White and is matted with the Copper Foil sheets found in the Annual Catalog before popping it up onto the card.

I just couldn’t resist a little more color pop so I added the Glitter Enamel dots … it adds some dimension and a whole lot of fun!!

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing another “Epic Celebrations” card  which will highlight the New Brusho!!

I thank you for stopping back today…

Hoping you have a wonderful Sunday.
