Christmas Bells

As you can see I love this stamp set. It is called Bells and Boughs in the Holiday Mini.  The Designer paper Deck the Halls is also amazing.  I used the ScallopTrim Border Punch (118402) and then added the 2 way glue pen to the scallops then sprinkled it with gold glitter from the Fine Galaxy Glitter Pack (114286).  The cardstock used is Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, and Always Artichoke.  Attahced a small bow from the 1/8" Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbn (119959).
I hope you enjoy this little card.  If you would like more information on making this project or need to order supplies, please contact me.
Happy Stampin' until we stamp together again, Lynette   

French Foliage

To be honest I did not like this stamp set in the 2010/2011 Idea Book; but after seeing so many cards made with it, it grew on me.  Actually I cased this from my upline. Here I used the stamp set French Foliage and paired it with the Day of Gratitude set for the sentiment and the Finial Press Embossing folder.  The colors used for cardstock and ink are: Peach Parfait, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Vary Vanilla, and Early Espresso.

Christmas Collage

Here is another Christmas inspirational boost.  Much of this year's style is vintage: warm, cozy, gentle, and inviting.  This charming card is just waiting to be sent to a lucky someone on your Christmas card list.
Stampin' Up! Supplies used:
STAMPS: Christmas Collage (121279), Bells and Boughs (W 120831)(C 121142) 
CARDSTOCK: Always Artichoke (105119), Cherry Cobbler (119685), Natural Ivory (101849)-TIP: this is better than Very Vanilla when using a Blender Pen; the fibers don't break down as quickly which results in rough, raggy cardstock
INK: Always Artichoke (105219), Cherry Cobbler (119669), VersaMark (102283)
Accessories: Embossing Buddy (103083), Gold Stampin' Emboss Poweder (109129), Heat Tool (100005), Blender Pen (102845), Scallop Oval Punch (119856), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430), Always Artichoke 1/2" Seam Binding (121000)

Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner?  That means time to make the cards!!  I love Christmas Cards-just ask my husband.
Dasher was a huge success last Christmas so what would this year be without him to wish your family and friends a very Merry Christmas. Dasher sells for $8 and is a simple; but, pretty stamp.  Use him once (like here) for a simple card or multiple times for that perfect background.
Stampin' Up! supplies:
Stamp Sets:  Dasher (116816), Bells and Boughs-I love this set it is so vintage (for sentiment) (W 120831)(C 121142)
Cardstock: Whisper White (100730), Real Red (102482), Brushed Gold (102935)
Ink: Real Red Classic (103133) VersaMark (102283)
Accessories: Gold Stampin' Embossing Powder (109129), Embossing Buddy (103083), Heat Tool (100005), Real Red 5/8" Satin Ribbon (117286), Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402), Petals-a-Plenty Texture Embossing Folder-I used the Finial Press Folder (115963), Big Shot Die Cut Machine (113439)

Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, and Autumn Spice DSP
Classic Ink:  Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Peach Parfait, Marina Mist, & Bashful Blue
Misc Accessories: Aqua Painter, Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals.

Patch Work Pumpkin

I found this cute card in one of my magazines it was a little harder than I thought what with cutting out the pumpkin patches and then pieces together.  All of the products used are Stampin' Up!.  The cardstock used was Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Autumn Spice DSP from the Holiday Mini.  The pumpkin and ribbon (Rich Razzleberry Grosgrain) are scraps and the leaf is from the French Foliage set stamped with Old Olive Classic ink, cut out, adhered with a brad.  Actually it looks better than I thought!!

Vintage Cards

 These are 2 cards using the same design and colors but for 2 different occasions.

This first I made for my sister-in-law's b'day party tomorrow.  Running the Blushing Bride layer through the Big Shot using the Manhattan embossing folder punched the left edge with the Scallop Edge punch.  I then dragged the Whisper White Craft ink pad so the flower would be accentuated--make sure this is dry before going onto the next step.  The sentiment (Decorative Labels) is stamped onto Sahara Sand cardstock using Perfect Plum ink. Punched with the Oval Scallop punch, sponged the edges with Perfect Plum ink and added a little paper knot of the Perfect Plum cardstock using a Mini Glue Dot-a mini Basic Pearl sits a top the knot.  The finishing touches include some Victorian trim.  The inside stamp is Sweet Birthday stamped in Perfect Plum ink on Sahara Sand.  I tore the right edge and again sponged the edges.  I spritzed the entire card with some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz to give it a glimmery look. 

 This card I have decided to make for my Christmas cards (I better get started now!).  I ran the Blushing Bride layer through the Big Shot using the new Northern Flurry embossing folder, the sentiment is Bells and Boughs set punched with the new Decrorative Label punch.  Add a few random Basic Pearls in the center of the snowflakes.  All of these items are in the New Holiday Mini.   I hope you like and Happy Stampin' until we stamp again, Lynette

Cottage Wall Desk Set

 Ok I made this little set for myself.  I just love the retired Cottage Wall DSP.  I wanted something to hold a pad and business cards.  I also used Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Front of pad holder is using both sides of a piece of the Cottage Wall.  The business cardholder is a cassette tape holder (remember them?) picked it up at Goodwill for 50 cents-threw the tape away-turned backwards. The ribbon is Whisper White satin.  Buttons had on hand.  Again no stamping was used.  Hope you enjoy.  Happy Stampin' until we stamp again, Lynette

Tall Tales Baby Card

My nephew and his wife just had a baby boy so of course I had to make the card!!!  And it had to say little boy!! I had this piece of Tall Tales DSP that was cut just about perfect and the ribbon is also scraps (as you see save your scraps).  Using the new colors to coordinate I think it turned out pretty good.  The card recipe is: Cardstock- Early Expresson, Cajun Craze, Whisper White, and Tall Tales DSP, Classic Ink-Cajun Craze and Brilliant Blue (retired), Stamp Sets-Warm Words (retired), Whimiscal Words, and Picture This, Neutral Brads, Pumpkin Pie Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon and Brilliant Blue 1/4" Grograin Ribbon (both retired), and last the Scallop Oval Extra Large Punch.  I hope you enjoy and Happy Stampin' until we stamp again.  All products used are Stampin' UP!
