Today I’m sharing a project made using the Power of Hope bundle from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. This bundle is only available free with a purchase of £90 or more but I think its worth it as the images in the stamp set are lovely and I love the Stone 3D Embossing folder, this is one product I’m hoping carries over to the new catalogue as I have plenty of ideas for it.
The background is quite simple with just a layer of Petal Pink cardstock run througth the 3D Stone Embossing folder, but this adds so much detail I don’t think the card needed anything else.
I stamped the chinese lady in Tuxedo Black ink onto a Very Vanilla cardstock circle from the Layering Circles dies. I then coloured her in with Petal Pink and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and mounted her onto a Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Circle before adding to my card.
I added a length of the Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon to the card to bring out the Vanilla colour of the card base. A simple card but perfect for any occassion.
Have you managed to pick up the Merry Moose bundle yet? Its low stock so many of you must love him as much as I do. I thought I’d give him another outing before he sells out and add in the cute little raccon for company.
I’ve used the Buffalo Check stamp as my background, stamping Cherry Cobbler ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock to give the card a Nordic vibe.
I used some of the Satin Edge Ribbon in Crumb Cake from the Come to Gather suite across the middle of the card. Of course no card would be complete without a greeting and what better one than Merry Christmoose!!
Today I’m sharing another card made with the Christmastime Is Here Suite of products, this time focusing on the paper with the smaller roses. This is a lovely sheet of paper and I wasn’t sure cutting up was the best decision butI wanted those small and roses seperate and I do have three more sheets to use up.
The gold edging on the background comes from one of the dies in the Roses collection, I just added along each edge of my backing paper so there was a little detail which sepreated in from the card base.
For the main part of the card I stamped the Merry Christmas greeting from the Christmas Rose stamp set in Golden Glitz Delicata Ink onto a Stiched Nested Label. Before I adhered this to my card I added a length of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon underneath the label to add some more interest and lift it from the background paper.
I finished the card off by adding my fussy cut roses to two corners of the label and then added a few of the smallest Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.
As its Friday I thought I’d share one of my Floral Friday projects with you this week and today’s card was made using the Climbing Roses Bundle. Roses are one of my favourite flowers so I’ve loved having this lovely big image to sit and colour.
After adding the greeting’s panel it looked a little lost so I added a few of the smaller roses to help it blend in with my rose background more.
I really love how this card turned out and it was nice to break away from my normal card size and make a 5″ square tent fold card for a change.
Today I’ve got two cards for the price of one with the duo made from the Merry Mistletoe stamp set and the Be Merry DSP. These products can both be found in the annual catalogue on page 113. Initially I overlooked Merry mistletoe but when it was in the sale last week I ordered myself a set and its growing on me. I love the Be Merry DSP mainly because I’m a real sucker for Cherry Cobbler, for me its the perfect Christmas red, but I also love how half of these papers contain generic patterns which can be used all year round. My favourite sheet though is still the cute little reindeer paper which I’ve used both sides of in todays projects.
What more do you need than some gold embossing powder and gold foil to make a beautiful card. I love the simplicity of this card and think it perfectly highlights the lovely reindeer stamp.
The other side of the reindeer paper is this garden green hounds tooth pattern, which is a little full on when you look at a whole sheet but works well with small amounts here. I’ve added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the mistletoe berries to add a little sparkle, just wish my photography skills were better so you could see how lovely it looks.
Here are both cards together, which is your favourite. Despite loving the reindeer paper I think the mistletoe one is my favourite, I just love the glitter.
Today I’ve gone for another traditional colour scheme of Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler, which the perfect combination for Christmas. I’ve used the candle stamps from Merry Patterns today and was surprised how much I loved stamping them. The candle image is built up from three steps, an outline and then two filler stamps for the candles so you can have alternating colours. They were so easy to line up too!
I added a patterned background paper from the Merry Little Christmas DSP paper and finished the card off with the Cherry Cobbler Double Stitched Ribbon which had just arrived with some new goodies.
Hope you enjoyed today’s project and join me for more inspiration tomorrow.
Happy World Card Making Day! Hope you’re all enjoying a little crafting today. For today’s card I chose to feature Graceful Garden, which has 15% off until Monday. As you know I love my floral sets and I particularly adore the rose images in this set, as soon as I get more watercolour paper I’m going to be colouring that gorgeous big rose. Today I chose to focus on the small rose image and use it more of an accent for the card.
The combination of Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Gold give this card a very luxurious feel and make it perfect to give as an anniversary card or birthday card for that special someone.
I’ve added the Gold Metallic edged ribbon behind my circle to soften the card and add a little bit of texture.
Inside I’ve repeated the same rose image on the bottom right corner. I really love how this card turned out and think its my favourite so far from this week.
Join me tomorrow for another project using the 15% stamp sets.
