Cool Background: Handmade paper look!

There’s only 2 days left to register to my Stamping club night on Monday, September 22, at 7:00pm.  If you want to learn cool new techniques, this class is for you!

For this month, as one of the technique, we will learn how to create a fabulous “handmade paper look”! This technique is so easy and does not required any expensive paper!  If you’re interested, please register by September 19 at julie_Olivier@hotmail.com.

The leaves were cut with the Autumn Accents Bigz dies and sponges with Cherry Cobbler ink. The greeting is from “Good Greetings” stamp set, a set that you can earn for FREE if you host your own workshop during the month of September or October. Contact me if you are interested in booking your card workshop!

How about a Christmas card?

I know Christmas is not for another 3 and a half months, but it’s never too early to start your Christmas cards! If you’re like me, you have a long list of people to send cards to, so better start early!  For today’s card, I used the Photopolymer set called “Endless Wishes“. If you think you saw it before, you’re right! It was offered for a limited time last year but sold out within a week! They brought this set back in the new Holiday mini-catalogue, so you get a second chance to order it!

To create this card, I used the Square Framelits die to create a mask (on a piece of scrap paper). I sponged in the square with Crumb Cake ink. Then I stamped the snowflakes in Cherry Cobbler ink. I used the new Confetti Start punch to make tiny little stars out of Gold glimmer paper and glued them in the center of the snowflakes. I completed the card with a 1/8″ Gold ribbon (on sale this week for only $5.21, Reg. $6.95!!!)

Here’s 2 boxes that I created with the Gift Box punch board:

Gift Boxes

The biggest box is an 4″ square and the other is 3.25″ x 1.75″. I used the new “Under the Tree” Specialty Designer Series paper to make the box. This paper is cardstock-weight kraft sheets with color print on one side and white printed pattern on the other. It’s acid free and lignin free.  It’s perfect to make these cute boxes in no time!

I also used the new “Merry Everything” stamp set that coordinates with the Note Tag punch.  Get it as a bundle and save 15% on the stamp set and the punch!

Flower Shop and Washi Tape Card

Today’s color combo is one that I truly like: Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight. It’s fresh and classy! I used the Flower Shop stamp set and the coordinated Pansy punch to make this cute card. Some Designer Washi Tape helps to complete the card.

Papillon Potpourri Squares

Today’s card is one of my favorite new color combination: Blackberry Bliss, Crush Curry and Sahara Sand! I used the Moonlight Designer Series paper (DSP) stack that have many papers with this color combo. Therefore, it’s so easy to put together! The background is made with Sahara Sand card stock, embossed with the Woodgrain folder. I cut an opening with the Square Framelits collection to create the window. Then, I cut 4 squares with the 1″ Square punch in the Moonlight DSP and glued them in place. The butterfly from Papillon Potpourri set is stamped with Crush Curry ink on Crush Curry card stock and cut with the Elegant Butterfly punch.

The greeting is from “A Dozen Thoughts” and I used the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits dies to cut the banner.
