Twinkle Twinkle Birthday

I love this Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, but I didn't need a new baby themed stamp set, so I set out to make a card that doesn't require the baby theme. The colors Night of Navy (striped pattern) and Gray Granite (star pattern) are emphasized on this fun card that brings birthday greetings to a special person.

I loved the way the three ribbons looked together: Gray Granite 1/2" Textured Weave, Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham and 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle. And that little heart--Oh My!

My clouds and the heart were cut out using the Up and Away Thinlits and my Big Shot.

I hope you liked looking today! Please leave a comment so I know you were here! Have a great day!

Fall Colors Collage with Timeless Textures

Even though it's very sunny and warm all day, the night temperatures have dipped about 10 degrees in the past week! Yay! No leaves falling yet, either. To celebrate that it may just be getting cooler, I used fall colors on my card. 

I received a swap that used a black mat and gray and black stamping for the background. I don't know whose card it is, though, sorry! I changed the color scheme and the sentiment/banner shape. I hope you enjoyed looking! Please leave me a comment so I know you were here.

At Home with You Tag and Video

I made this tag for a house warming gift. It is based on the tag from page 56 in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, using the stamp set At Home With You. They attached their door with a wreath to a package of cookies! Here I used the same colors as the house I was "warming" with my gift of an American flag.

There are so many ways to use the door and all of the stamps in this set. See below for some more examples and product information.

Sweet Christmas Gift Tags In a Cute Box

I know it's early to be making Christmas Projects, but I received my Holiday Catalog pre-order weeks ago and I just couldn't help but play with the Festive Farmhouse Suite along with the Peaceful Noel and Feather & Frost stamp sets! I had an inaugural gathering in my new Craft Studio and I wanted to have a fun project for the ladies to take home.

The new Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder was used on top of this box. See those wonderful stitches on the banner with the star print from the Festive Farmhouse DSP? That is from the Farmhouse Framelits Dies!

We made three gift cards and a sweet mini pizza box to keep them in. It could also be a gift that you bring to your host at a dinner party during the holidays, OR you could use the box to put a little something sweet at a table place setting. The possibilities are endless!

This sweet checked card shows off the color scheme I chose from Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, the 5/8" Striped Burlap Trim and the Merry Little Christmas sentiment from the Peaceful Noel stamp set.  The Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine will help tie this card onto a package.

Next I used the leaves and berries stamp from the Feathers & Frost stamp set, stamping them onto Whisper White card stock using VersaMark and Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder. I colored in the leaves using So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker and the berries with a Cherry Cobbler SW Marker. JOY is from the same stamp set and it's embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. The ribbon being the sentiment is Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon. The chord is retired stretch silver.

Lastly, this sweet bird from Feather & Frost finds a home in the center of a Boxwood Wreath Embellishment. I bought the wreaths over a year ago, but hadn't used on yet! The bird is colored using Dark and Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends and a So Saffron marker. Behind the bird and wreath is a flag that I stamped using the new Buffalo Check background stamp. The chord is retired gold chord.

Thank you for looking today! Let me know if you have any questions on how I made these cards or the box. I'd love to answer them.
