Summertime

Sorry for the BLANK post earlier, lets change that!  Today's card uses the "Oh So Eclectic Bundle" I love the colors in this Designer paper and the Fresh Fig In Color!


This is really a simple card, a 4X4 Piece of Designer paper on a Fresh Fig card base.  I tied the Fresh Fig ribbon around the paper before I adhered to the card base.  The Sentiment was stamped by the Misti to get a nice dark image.



And these flowers....WOW they layer!  Love that feature and then 2 step stamping for even more texture.  I pulled colors from the paper for the Flowers.  Soft Sky stamped with Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist stamped on Lemon Lime twist.

Peaceful Emerald Envy

I also wanted to show you the Christmas paper from the New Catalog, BUT I am out of Garden Green card stock!!  I hate that feeling when I go to my paper stash and the folder is EMPTY!!  And the card floating around is my head is Green, with TREES!!

So I grabbed some Emerald Envy and then went on the hunt for some DSP for Trees.......and of course all I could come up with was RETIRED!  But this paper makes awesome TREES, so expect to see it if you come to Stamp a Stack!!


I used the sparkle stamp in this set and made a background.  Emerald Envy ink on Emerald Envy card stock.  The Trees were cut and adhered or popped up.  Love the tone on tone!!  And the adorable deer, too cute!!!


The Sentiment was embossed in Silver on Vellum and cut out with a Circle Framelit.  Tombow glue behind the letters to adhere the Vellum to the card base.  And a few scattered Rhinestones.

Glimmer Paper Christmas

The Moon and Stars cut out really caught my eye.......and with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper behind, this card will catch the light and eyes of everyone you send one to!!


I cut a Dapper Denim Panel 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  Cut out the Moon and Stars and then embossed the sentiment in Silver.  Then placed the Trees below the sentiment and cut out.  Save the trees for another card!!!



I then added the Glimmer paper to the Dapper Denim card base and the used dimensionals to pop the panel up over the Glimmer paper.

Deck the Halls

I was so impressed with my first attempt with the outline Framelit, I tried again and you can see I did not match up the holes!!   I guess my Beginners LUCK is over!!  I could easily add some Holly sprigs to hide this little oops, but wanted to show you......


Love the Fonts on the sentiments in this set!!  And the Little Ornaments, Holly, so many options!!!

Christmas In July Vellum

Yes I am making Christmas cards in JULY!!  This sneak peak of "Carols of Christmas" is amazing and I hope you think so too!  I first wanted to try some Vellum with Cherry Cobbler.  I cut the Vellum with the Framelits and managed to line up the 2 circles the first time!!  I embossed the sentiment in Silver and used glues dots under the letters and on each corner to adhere to the Cherry Cobbler card base.


Rhinestones were added to each corner to camouflage the glue dots.  Trees were cut from Silver Foil and a few twists of Silver Thread was added.


The possibilities are endless with this bundle!!  Put it on your wish list for August 1st!

Hummingbird Flutter

Take 2 on the Flutter card and the precision plate is the way to go!!!  Look how pretty these cuts are:
And they peel right out of the card stock!

I decided to adhere this card together to form a pocket for the Flutter insert and used heavy duty tape adhesive.  The Flutter panel is cut 3/3/4 X 4 1/2.  I stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Lemon Lime Twist.  And added a Lemon Lime Twist ribbon pull.

Adhere the layers together and then decorate the front.


All the Framelits make the decorating easy.  Stamp and cut with the Big Shot as usual.

Here is the finished card with the Flutter Panel inside.   I added another Hummingbird Smoky Slate and Cherry Cobbler on the card front sipping from the Flower.  "Thanks" was punched with a new punch "Pretty Label".
