Happy For You!

For this month's thank you cards I used the Happy Celebrations stamp set and the "HAPPY" from the Celebrations Duo embossing folder set.  The colour combination of Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Sweet Sugarplum was inspired by the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper...

Happy Celebrations Thank You Card

Stamps: Happy Celebrations (photopolymer: 143012).  Ink: Mint Macaron (138326), Tip Top Taupe (138325).  Card/Paper: Tip Top Taupe (138343), Sweet Sugarplum (141423), Whisper White (106549), Whisper White Thick (140490), Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (142778).  Accessories: Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (141897), Lace Doilies (142793), Sending Love Embellishments (142735).  Tools: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (142760), Stampin' Pierce Mat (126199), Stamping Sponges (141337), Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

Like THESE "celebrate" cards, the "HAPPY" on this card is debossed or impressed into the card (rather than raised).  When stamping over the top of the debossed impressions, remember to use a Stampin' Pierce Mat under the card stock for even, consistent stamping.

Happy Celebrations Thank You Card

The piece of doily under the sentiment is a section of a Lace Doily that I've sponged in Sweet Sugarplum.  These gorgeous doilies are white on one side, Very Vanilla on the other side and are on the Retiring List. 

To lift my card and to give it some subtle bling, I used the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add a shimmer to the wooden element from the Sending Love Embellishments and the piece of doily.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but to save the world through him.
John 3:16-17 NIV

 

A Mini Egg Carton for Mother's Day!

I hope you're having a fabulous Easter!  At my monthly workshops, I shared an idea for creating a gift box for Mother's Day, which is a Mini Egg Carton filled with pamper products.  The one I showed my guests was just a prototype and wasn't decorated, but now it is!  I spritzed the Mini Egg Carton with Pear Pizzazz ink and finished it with the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper...

Tasty Treats Mini Egg Carton

Stamps: Suite Sentiments (wood: 142968, clear: 140712).  Ink: Watermelon Wonder (138323).  Card/Paper: Whisper White (106549), Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper (142770), Gold Foil Sheets (132622).  Accessories: Mini Egg Carton (142776), Gold Metallic Thread (138401), Whisper White Mini Pompom Trim (141486), Delicate White Doilies (141701).  Tools:  1-3/4" Circle Punch (119850), Project Life Corner Punch (135346), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

You may not be able to see, but the pattern I've used from the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper has a gorgeous glossy finish to all the fruit.  There's two of these sheets (with different patterns) in each pack of paper...

The Cool Treats stamp set (which coordinates with the designer paper) didn't have the words I wanted, so out came my well-used and very versatile Suite Sentiments Wood stamp set for "The best things in life are sweet" on the front and inside is...

Tasty Treats Mini Egg Carton

... "Just like you" - love it!  Also inside is handmade soap, a small facial scrub brush, lip balm and a cute tealight candle.

This will make a wonderful Mother's Day gift.

Another Mini Egg Carton!

Have you finished your Easter creations?  Not surprisingly, some of mine were made using the Mini Egg Cartons from the Occasions Catalogue.  Now I have a few left over, but that's okay as these cute gift boxes are for more than just Easter eggs.  I wanted to make something to celebrate a friend's recent accomplishment... enter the Mini Egg Carton decorated in black and gold with the Happy Celebrations stamp set and Celebrations Duo embossing folder...

Urban Underground Masculine Birthday

Some people find masculine birthday cards difficult to create, which can sometimes come down to the product we own as we're often drawn to pretty things.  Enter the Urban Underground Suite!  These coordinating products make cards for the boys and men in our lives a cinch with bold, geometric patterns and strong, contrasting colours of Basic Black, Basic Gray, Delightful Dijon Very Vanilla and silver.  Inspired by this fabulous product suite I created a corner-fold or corner-flip birthday card for my hubby...

Urban Underground Corner Fold Masculine Birthday Card

Bundle: Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set + Duet Banner Punch (photopolymer: 141614).  Stamps: Urban District (wood: 143068, clear: 143071).  Ink: Delightful Dijon (138327), Basic Gray Archival (140932), VersaMark (102283).  Card/Paper: Delightful Dijon (138345), Basic Gray (121689), Basic Black (121688), Very Vanilla (106550), Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper (142783).  Accessories: Urban Underground Embellishments (142786), Urban Underground Designer Washi Tape (142787), Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder (109130).  Tools: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (145372), Build It Framelits Dies (143230), Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (143231), Stampin' Trimmer (129722), Heat Tool (129056), Embossing Buddy (103083), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

The wow-factor of this card is the combination of the fancy fold, the product suite coordination and all those textures.  I clear heat-embossed the hexagons from the Urban District stamp set onto a Basic Black card base, more stamped hexagons in Basic Gray on Very Vanilla and then followed through with a large die-cut hexagon focal point, embossed using the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder...

Urban Underground Corner Fold Masculine Birthday Card

... then there's the layers of washi tape from the Urban Underground Designer Washi Tape (check out those the shiny, silver crosses) and finished the front with a brushed silver, hexagon embellishment (those things are so weighty and robust!).

Urban Underground Corner Fold Masculine Birthday Card
