Flurry of Wishes

 Flurry of Wishes Clean and Simple Card

 

I love snowflake stamp sets like this one, Flurry of Wishes.  This is a stamp set that can be used for Christmas cards but also for winter themed birthday, thank you and other occasion cards. 

If you purchase the stamp set as part of a bundle, the Snow Flurry punch is included and you save 15% off purchasing the items separately.

The colours on this card are Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo and Smoky Slate inks and card stocks. I added Iced Rhinestone Embellishments to the center of the snowflakes as well as the smaller Rhinestone Basic Jewel Embellishments.

The "Merry Christmas" greeting was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder to finish the card.

Want a Bargain? Check out the Decorative Masks

 Stampin Up Happy Patterns Decorative Masks Cards

 

No matter how many times I look through the catalogue, I still find products that I hadn’t noticed before.

I want to draw your attention to some newish products that you may not have noticed – the Decorative Masks on page 157. And starting at just $3.75 a set, they are a bargain. There are three to choose from – Happy Patterns, Hearts & Stars and Dots & Stripes.

For my cards, I used the Happy Patterns decorative mask set to make these great backgrounds. I found it helpful to use pieces of painters tape to hold the masks in place over the card stock.

 Happy Patterns Rainbow Endless Wishes Card

 

I made this simple rainbow background with the Brights Collection of inks and sponge daubers. From left to right, I used Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo.

To add the greeting, I adhered"happy" from the Hello You Thinlits to a Window Sheet and then stamped "birthday" from the Endless Wishes Photopolymer stamp set onto the Window Sheet with black StazOn ink. I usually prefer to use an ink other than Stazon with photopolymer stamps but for the Window Sheet I needed the Stazon. When using StazOn and Photopolymer stamp sets, it is important to clean you stamps soon after using and to not use the Stazon cleaner.

The black sequin stars and heart are from the Metallic Sequin Assortment and just a little bling to the card.

 Stampin Up Happy Pattenrs On Big Meaning Embossed Card

 

For this card, I applied VersaMark ink to the Whisper White Thick card stock using direct to paper. It helps to have a well inked stamp pad to get the ink evenly over the paper.

After removing the mask, I added silver embossing powder to the top third, gold embossing powder to the middle and black embossing powder to the bottom. You want to apply all three powders before heat embossing. Apply one colour of powder and tap off any excess before applying next colour.

I added a greeting from the One Big Meaning stamp set on a  banner punched with the Triple Banner Punch

To finish, I added a Pansy Punch flower made with the White Filter Paper. It’s easiest to punch if you do several layers of filter paper at once. I punched four at once and used 16 punched flowers total.

Super Easy Remarkable You

Clean and Simple Remarkable You Card from Stampin Up

 

Need a quick card? Or maybe you need to make a lot of cards?

A super easy card like this one can save you time and money for supplies.

I stamped the flower image from the Remarkable You stamp set in black ink and added the greeting. With a ruler and a basic black marker, I drew the lines around the outside of the card. Finally, I coloured the flower with an Aqua Painter and Bermuda Bay ink. A cluster of Rhinestone Basic Jewels in the center of the flower completes the card. 

Super easy, right?

One Layout, Two Cards – To Christmas or Not to Christmas

Stampin' Up! Canada Lots of Joy and Butterfly Basics Circle Cards

 

The last few days I have been showcasing some of the new stamp sets and products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue for 2015-2016 by Stampin’ Up! Canada. Don’t forget to request your free copy today.

 

But if you want to start your Christmas Cards now, there are holiday themed stamp sets on pages 67-72 of the current catalogue as well. Stamps set like Lots of Joy which I used for one of my cards today. This stamp set has 10 images including four greetings, to/from, an ornament, tree, postage stamp and more. A fun plaid design is featured throughout the set.

For both of these cards, I used the same layout just changing the stamp set and embellishments on each. Each card uses the 2-1/2" Circle Punch with a frame of paper-pierced dots made with the Updated Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, Stampin’ Pierce Mat and Paper-Piercing Tool as a starting point.

Even though the same layout was used for both cards, you can see that it is possible to get two entirely different looks by changing up the colours, theme and accessories.

Lots of Joy Circle Card

 

 For this Christmas Card, I used the Lots of Joy stamp set with the Merry Moments designer series paper. The colours are Real Red and Crumb Cake with Whisper White.

The Tree Punch was punched twice, once in the designer series paper and once in Crumb Cake. By placing the Crumb Cake tree behind the patterned paper tree it really makes the trees stand out. The greeting was stamped in Real Red but I cheated and used a Cherry Cobbler button from the Regals Designer Buttons pack. That’ll be our secret, okay? Topping the button is a small bow of linen thread to cover the button holes and finish the card.


Butterfly Basics Circle Card

 

 For this Happy Birthday Card, I choose the greeting from the Butterfly Basics stamp set with the English Garden designer series paper. The colours are Mint Macaron, Lost Lagoon and Blushing Bride. 

The butterfly was cut out with the Bold Butterfly Framelits for the Big Shot and the Blushing Bride card stock. The greeting was stamped in Lost Lagoon ink and punched out with the Triple Banner Punch

I had decided to add a few – may 3 or 5 – Pearl Basic Jewels around the circle to highlight the outside frame. But it didn’t look quite right so I kept on going until the circle was almost complete. I wouldn’t recommend this for every card but I think it works here. Do you think it’s too much?

Watercolor Words Trio – Let’s Scribble!

Watercolor Words Stamp Set Scribble Flowers

 

These cards highlight one of my stamping weaknesses – Scribble Flowers. I must have scribble flowers. 

I think it’s because I’m reminded of a favourite stamp set that I had long ago but I just can’t say no to scribble flowers. And so I had to order the Watercolor Words stamp set so I could make cards like these.

 

Using just three colours of ink and card stock, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder, I created a variety of cards even though the stamped image repeats itself.

I partnered the three main colours with black including candy dots, designer series paper, ink and card stock. I also use heat embossing for two of the cards to make the addition of ink with daubers easier.

The Watercolor Words stamp set also includes a great range of greetings including just for you, happy birthday and love plus you’re the best, hope and hooray to cover almost every occasion. Other images include a heart, star, leaf and smaller flower.

This is a fabulous stamp set for a beginner or someone who has been stamping for a long time.

 

So. what type of images are your must haves? Leave a comment and let me know.

Watercolor Words Love Card

 

I created this card with Thick Whisper White card stock embossed with the Large Polka Dot Textured Embossing Folder. The black and white striped piece is from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack. Each flower was heat embossed with white embossing powder and coloured with Bermuda Bay, Pool Party or Wisteria Wonder ink. The leaves are Wild Wasabi.

 

 

Watercolor Words Scribble Flowers

 

Each flower was stamped several times in Bermuda Bay, Wisteria Wonder and Pool Party inks to make the colorful background. The card stock layers are the same colours. I choose Basic Black as an accent including the black Neutrals Candy Dots in the center of the single flower. 

 

 

Watercolor Words Scribble Flowers Embossed

 

 I stamped the scribble flowers from Watercolor Words with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Using sponge daubers, I added Bermuda Bay, Wisteria Wonder and Pool Party inks. After using the Triple Banner punch to make the greeting piece, I added three white Neutrals Candy Dots.

Blackberry Bliss Watercolor Wings

Watercolor Wings Bundle in Blackberry Bliss

 

Another clean and simple card monochromatic card – this time using the Watercolor Wings stamp set and Bold Butterfly Framelit Dies. These two items are available as a bundle so you save 15% over buying them separately.

The papers are a base of Thick Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss card stock, Corrugated White and Whisper White card stocks. I really like the texture that the corrugated papers add to my cards and projects.

I used the Triple Banner punch to add a fishtail to the Fluttering embossing folder to match the greeting. The butterfly background piece was made with the 1-3/8" and 1-3/4" circle punches.

Rhinestones add the finishing touch to the card.

Simple Saturday with Perpetual Birthday

Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set Cards

 

Simple Saturday is all about clean and simple cards that can be made in ten minutes or less. And as a bonus today, all three of these cards were ready in no time.

I love my Perpetual Birthday Calendar Project Kit and coordinating Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set. To get even more value from the stamp set, I wanted to use it to create some cards. 

I stamped a single image in one colour of ink to make monochromatic cards. With the Triple Banner Punch, I added card stock banners in the same colour with a greeting from the One Big Meaning stamp set.

Need a bunch of quick cards? Give these a try.
