A Happy Birthday to My Mother!

Papillon Potpourri soft birthday card angle

One of my all-time favorite color schemes is Pink Pirouette with crisp white and dramatic black.  It’s such an elegant look and feel.  So I used the combo for my mother’s birthday card.  (I think I used the same colors in her Mother’s Day card too.  Oops!)  I had to make sure she received her card in the mail first before I posted it here – so now that I’m sure she has it, I can share it with all of you!  I love making something special for her, because I love her, she deserves it, and because she loves my cards and appreciates them!

First, I stamped one of the smaller doilies from Delicate Doilies stamp set down the left side.  Then, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement, I stamped the sentiment from Blooming with Kindness in Black StazOn ink.  While I had my doily inked up with Pink Pirouette I stamped it on a scrap then stamped the butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set over that before punching it out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.

I used the same punch to layer a black butterfly silhouette and punched out the small 4-petal flower in pink from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  An itty bitty black circle  topped with a bitty pearl was added to the tiny flower.  My bone folder aided me to curve the wings of the butterfly and the petals of the tiny flower.

The black delicate scallop edge was punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and tucked under the stamped panel before the panel was adhered to the Pink Pirouette card base.

Tricky Treats Halloween 2-4-6-8 box

2-4-6-8 Halloween Treat Box

Tricky Treats Halloween 2-4-6-8 box

This 2-4-6-8 Halloween treat box is so super easy to make and I recorded a video to show you how to make the box and the tag.

If you are reading in email you can view the video tutorial here or here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqzBaSikDNg

This simple box is made with a half a sheet of paper measuring 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  This box was embossed with the Spider Web Embossing Folder.  To emboss the box you’ll need to emboss it twice, running it through the Big Shot once on each side before assembling the box.

Tricky Treats 2-4-6-8 Halloween box top

There are several options for closing up the top; you can use ribbon or a topper.  In this sample the top was folded in and secured with a Glimmer Brad, then the tag was hung from the brad.

Punches make quick work for tag creation!

This cute spider would look adorable with googlie eyes!  And the adhesive backed googlie eyes available in the Holiday Catalog would make that quick to do, but in this case I colored his eyes with a So Saffron marker to add just a tinge of color.

RIBBON SPECIAL!  Don’t forget to order during the month of September and receive FREE ribbon (value $8.95) for every $40 in product ordered.  What does that mean?  For example, if you purchase the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Diagonal Plate you would earn a Free spool of ribbon.  If you purchase the Big Shot, you’ll receive 2 spools of ribbon.  If your total order is over $150 you would earn 3 spools of ribbon PLUS $25 in Stampin’ Rewards FREE product.  Questions?  Let me know.

Have Yourself a Merry Pink Christmas!

joyous celebrations pink christmas card angle I’m usually super traditional when it comes to Christmas – which means lots of bright Christmas reds and greens – so I wasn’t sure about making a pink Christmas card.  What a great challenge though!  This is my 3rd installment for the SCS color challenge: Lucky Primrose Pirouettes with the add-on challenge of making a pink Christmas card.  So the official colors this week were Lucky Limeade, Pink Pirouette, and Primrose Petals.  I love these colors!

Here’s a video tutorial.  (From email, view it here or here http://youtu.be/mo5XVWKFc-Y)

 . joyous celebrations pink christmas card close up

I used a LOT of Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder on this card, which is soooo impossible to photograph.  Ugh!  Anyway, I embossed Whisper White card stock with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the Holiday Frame Embossing Folder.  Then, using a brayer, I lightly rolled VersaMark ink and Pink Pirouette ink over the raised panel, after which I dusted it with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and heat embossed.

I trimmed around the embossed panel with my Paper Snips and layered it on Pink Pirouette card stock.  The card base measures 4″ x 5-1/2″ for an even border on all edges.

The ornament was stamped with Primrose Petals and embossed with……that’s right!…Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder!!  Love that stuff!  The holly was inked with Lucky Limeade and then I tapped the brush tip of the Primrose Petals marker on the berries before stamping.  These pieces were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I tied a Pirouette Pink Satin Ribbon bow and attached it with Glue Dots including adding a couple under the tails to give it shape.

And finally, I added a few rhinestones.  You can never go wrong with glitter and rhinestones!

So it turns out, I like a pink Christmas card!
