Nature Silhouettes

Morning and welcome to my blog! I created this card the other day when I was able to steal some time away from working on our house. lol The stamp set I used was Nature Silhouettes item #111542 and On Your Birthday item #111664 I made this card to be 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" I don't normally make cards this size but I had this idea and wanted to try it. I really am happy with how it turned out! My base is Really Rust, then More Mustard, next is the Chocolate Chip piece I used the mat pack and the paper piercer and pierced all four corners. I added a strip of the Autumn Meadows DSP from the Holiday Mini Catalog and placed 2 vintage brads off to the left. On the Nature Silhouettes image I sponged in the following colors Chocolate Chip, Really Rust and More Mustard and then stamped it on the WW card stock. I sponged the dear in Chocolate Chip next and stamp it using the stamp ma-jig. Then matted that onto a piece of More Mustard card stock and placed in the center of my card. Using the saying from On Your Birthday stamp set, I stamped that in Chocolate Chip punched it out using the Large Oval Punch, sponged the edges with More Mustard classic ink. I used the Curly Label Punch and punched it out in Really Rust and then paper pierced the top and bottom to add a little more to it. Then snailed the two pieces together, placed a dimensionals on the back and placed it in the bottom left hand corner.

2nd Part of Mini Album/Razzle Dazzle

Happy Saturday everyone!!! Morning and welcome to my blog! Grab your coffee and visit awhile :) Here is the second half of my mini album! If you missed the first half don't worry it was the post right before this one.
To create this album I used Razzle Dazzle item # 116714 and I used En Francis Stamp Set item #109521. This is the last 2 pages to the album. I cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry long enough to make two pages out of it. I scored it in half so it opens up to another 2 pages. The photo mat is Crushed Curry, to get the shaped corner up at the right I used the Round Tab Punch, I used the little dip part to create a fancy corner, I then sponged some pumpkin pie around the edge. Of to the left I added a strip of Designer Series Razzleberry Lemonade Paper which I used the eyelet border punch on. For the ribbon I took some White Organza ribbon I sponged Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie ink on it. For the little tab on the left hand side I stamped the En Francis stamp in Rich Razzleberry on Melon Mambo and then punched it out using the word window punch, then sponged Rich Razzleberry ink around it. I folded it in half to create the tab and placed a silver brad to hold it together.

Here is what it opens up too. It creates another 2 pages!
The page on the left has a photo mat of Whisper White, again I punched out the fancy corner using my Round Tab Punch. I used the flower scroll from the Razzle Dazzle set and stamped in Pumpkin Pie. I sponged Crushed Curry around the edges.
The page on the right I used Pumpkin Pie as the Photo Mat, I cut a strip of Crushed Curry and used the eyelet border punch on it and then sponged some Pumpkin Pie on the edge of it. I took some Whisper White Taffeta ribbon and stamped the En Francis stamp in Rich Razzleberry and then sponged it in Pumpkin Pie.

Mini Album/Razzle Dazzle Stamp/Rock n Roll Technique

Happy Friday and welcome to my blog!!!

Today's share is a mini album I made for a convention swap! There is quite a bit to this little album to share so I will be doing it in 2 posts and afterwards I will be posting a tutorial for it :) I used one of my new favorite sets which is Razzle Dazzle item # 116714 and I used En Francis Stamp Set item #109521. I also used the new incolors, I just love these new incolors so much!!! The hole album base is made out of Crushed Curry card stock. You'll need to select some ribbon to tie it closed I picked 1/2 polka-dot Melon Mambo Grosgrain Ribbon and 1/4 Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon. You'll need to make sure to cut your ribbon long enough to wrap around the hole album to tie is shut. Next I took the En Francis Stamp Set and stamped in Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink on a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock. I took the Cutter Kit and roughed up the edges. I then added a strip of Pumpkin Pie Card Stock with a strip of Designer Series Razzleberry Lemonade Paper. Which I sponged all the edges with Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink. I added two vintage brads to the side. I stamped the image from Razzle Dazzle in Crushed Curry and then rolled the edges in Rich Razzleberry. This is called the Rock n Roll Technique I really love this technique! I stamped it on Whisper White Card Stock and sponged the edges with Crushed Curry Classic Ink. I cut a piece of Melon Mambo, roughed the edges with the Cutter Kit and then placed my stamped piece on it. I added dimensionals on the back and placed it in the center of the mini album cover.

Then I added the strip of DSP Autumn Meadows and wrapped 1/4 Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon around it. I stamped the Turkey from Gifts of the Earth in Chocolate Chip classic ink on Very Vanilla card stock and then layered that on Chocolate Chip card stock. I placed dimensionals on the back and then set it off to the left over the ribbon. You'll notice in the bottom right hand corner I stamped the saying from Gifts of the Earth in Chocolate Chip classic ink. Very simple and easy card to remake if you need a bunch!

Monday's 3D Challenge with Season of Joy

Hello and Good morning!!! I hope you all enjoyed the blog hop over the past few days! Thank you all for your sweet comments!! It was a lot of fun to create those projects using the Serene Snowflake set! I love that set!!!! Today's share is the challenge I posted over on over on the Stampin' Addicts site! Click on the link if you would like to visit this awesome site! http://www.stampinaddicts.com/ Head on over there is a lot of different challenges posted each week!!! If your a demo be sure to sign up for the demo forums too! The challenge was to make this Top Note Handbag!! I love how this one turned out! I made one for the blog hop only I made that one as a scrapbook purse, this one has a clear cello bag inside so you can use it to put goodies in!

For the stamp set I used Season of Joy item #110384 along with my Big Shot item #113439 and the Top Note Die item #113463. I took a piece of Designer Series Paper Nouveau Chic and cut it out with the Top Note Die and folded it in half, then punched holes through the top and ran some 5/8 Basic Black Grosgrain ribbon through for the handle. This is for the top. Next I cut a piece of Basic Gray 4 1/4" x 7" and then scored it in half at 3 1/2". I took our Season of Joy Stamp Set and using the pointsetta I stamped them on Whisper White card stock in Basic Gray and Apricot Appeal. I cut them out added some dazzling diamonds and put dimensionals on the back to pop them up. In the background you'll notice I stamped the swirls in Basic Black. Super easy to make!! Great gift idea for anyone!!!
