Merry & Bright in Polished Pink!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m doing a twist on my Simply Sunday today … a simple card to start and then I will gradually add some elements to lift the card to another level. Let’s begin with a little “fun” …. What do you get when you cross the Tidings of Christmas with the Expressions in Ink? A totally non-traditional Christmas card … in “PINK”!!

I began with the stunning Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper in the new Polished Pink that is beautifully entwined with gold foils, so naturally I would use a Gold Foil mat and a Polished Pink card base.

I stamped the greeting in VersaMark and heat embossed it with the Gold Embossing Powder. My greeting comes from the Tidings & Trimmings Stamp Set. We could leave this card simply as is but, check this out ….

Before I attached the Gold Foil card base, I die cut some of those pretty little starts from the Tidings & Trimmings bundle!! This ads such and elegant touch to our beautiful Expressions in Ink Designer paper.

We went from a simply beautiful non-traditional “PINK” Christmas card to one that is simply stunning! Don’t forget to use the leftover pieces of designer paper to deck out the inside of your card.

Thanks for hanging out with me today!! See, you never know when I’m able to post a “requested” card.

Enjoy and have a beautiful Sunday ~

Tidings of Christmas in Misty Moonlight

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Let the weekend officially begin … How did you enjoy the Tidings of Christmas card that I shared yesterday? Yes? Well … I have another for card for you using this suite and where I’m going to showcase the dies from the suite; the stockings and some greenery …

I love the way this card turned out!! I chose this pattern designer paper from the suite and worked my color pallet from that … Sahara Sand, Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent. The base is Misty Moonlight, then the background designer paper, the center piece is Sahara Sand.

I stamped the greeting in Misty Moonlight on the Sahara Sand. Then I stamped the stockings in the Misty Moonlight on Misty Moonlight then die cut them The white tops were cut using the top of the stocking die as there is “no” separate die for that.

The greenery was die cut from Soft Succulent cardstock and adds such a beautiful touch to the card. The stamp set and dies can be purchased as a bundle, as well as the entire suite ….

The stamped stockings have the same patterns in their design as in the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series paper…. and so do the dies, and that is why they call it a suite. All the products were created to coordinate perfectly!

I couldn’t resist added the new 2020-2022 In Color Square Gems … they are Misty Moonlight!! Plus they add a nice finishing touch to the card. You can find these cute gems on page 142.

I thank you for stopping by today. Do you prefer the traditional colors I used yesterday, or do you like to change up your card colors a bit?

Have a wonderful weekend & stay safe ~

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year?

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today … with a chill in the air, I thought it was the perfect time to share a card that I created using the wonderful Tidings of Christmas. I know many of you start your Christmas cardmaking early, so I thought I’d give you a peek into what I’ve been creating with this suite …. the suite includes …

I start out on the “simple” side and will have so much more to share with you! Here is one of the cards I created ….

I used the pretty Tidings of Christmas Designer Series paper as my backdrop … the pretty papers remind me of Christmas’ past but have an elegant modern touch to them.

I teamed up my Tidings of Christmas with the “Elegant Tag” Punch. This amazing punch is fun and easy to work with, and you can create an multitude of options!! Here is just one …

I lengthened the punched paper to fit my greeting … you simple punch from the backside. Maybe I’ll create a short video to show you how, along with a tip to make it effortlessly!

Behind the punched greeting which of course is from our Tidings & Trimmings Bundle I added a touch of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the beautiful Evening Evergreen Chevron Weave Ribbon.

I used the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels just to add a little around the greeting You can find these cute gems on page 142. It also seems to anchor the tag and highlight the beautiful ribbon.

I thank you for stopping by today. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this new suite!!

Have a great day ~
