NaBloPoMo Day 20: Quick and simple Festive Flurry card

Saying Good-Bye to “Bordering on Romance”

“Bordering on Romance “stamp set is on the retiring list… That means if you want to order it, you have until the end of May, that’s it! The 2 following cards were made with that stamp set.

For the first one, I stamped 3 flowers and used the 1” Square punch to capture part of the image. I then superposed on top of the Postage Stamp punch. I stamped a row of flowers on the side and I added a Midnight Muse Stitched Satin ribbon to finish the card.

On the second card, I used Bordering on Romance stamps in Basic Black on the background. The flower (from Mixed Bunch stamp set) is stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Real Red card stock and cut using the Blossom punch. I used the button stamp from the Button Buttons stamp set (also retiring at the end of the month) for the center of the flower. The greeting is from Wishes your Way set, found in the Occasions mini-catalogue.

“Dress up” Birthday Card for a Dressmaker

Today’s my godmother’s birthday.  She’s the best sewer I know!  I found the ideal designer paper and Framelits dies to make her a card, I’m pretty sure she will like!

I used the “Dress up” Framelits dies (p.32 in the Occasions Mini-Catalogue) to cut the dress form and dress.  Also from the mini-catalogue, the paper used for the dress and the background paper (big oval shape) is from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack and shows sewing patterns (perfect for my theme!). I added a pearl necklace, a “belt” and flower to dress it up! I stamped some flowers in the Background (from Secret Garden stamp set).

Pink Butterfly and Stitched Satin ribbon

Are you ready for another 2-layer card?  I think I’m starting to be addicted to this challenge!!!  I used the “Papillon Potpourri” stamp set to make this card.  I wanted to make one butterfly really “pop” so I stamped it with StazOn black ink and colored it with markers and with the blender pen. I then added Crystal Effect over.  It is really coming out of the page now!  Too bad the picture really can’t capture the effect!!!  I also used the FREE Stitched Satin ribbon in Primerose Petals.  Have you got your free ribbon yet?  There’s only 3 days left! Don’t miss it! Email me your order today!!!

For the background, I stamped as many butterflies I could in Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose.  I also added some ink spatters (in Pretty in Pink) with the Color Spritzer Tool.  (I’m starteing to be addicted to this new cool gadget too!!!)  I used the Paper Piercer tool to make a dotted line to show that the butterfly was flying.  Maybe not the best I’ve ever done but it still looks OK…

My husband said that the butterfly looks like a “real 3D sticker” from the store.  I said “No, I did it myself!!!” and he replied “this is a good thing, you know…”

What else to do with the FREE Stitched Satin ribbon

If you don’t know it by now, Stampin’up is giving a FREE spool of Stitched Satin ribbon with every $50 order for the month of September only!!!

So here’s another idea how to use this awesome ribbon!  I used it to make the stem and leaves of this cute flower!  To make the flower I took the 1-3/4″ Scallop  Circle punch and the Boho Blossom punch combined with a super cute New Dahlia! I used the bright and colorful “Floral District” designer series paper.

The greeting is from Occasions Alphabet.

What to do with your FREE Stitched Satin ribbon???

Have you seen that Stampin’up is offering a FREE spool of Stitched Satin ribbon with every $50 order? I want to give you some ideas of how to use this free ribbon!!! I made two cards that are a bit similar and both use the Gumball Green Stitched Ribbon in 2 different ways… I used the Holiday Collection Framelits dies for both cards.

For the first one, I used the ribbon to create a border on my card.  The best way to adhere your ribbon on the card is the Snail adhesive.  It sticks very well and it doesn’t show through.  For that card, I stamped the tree with the stamp from the Scentsational Season set. I embossed it with the Fancy Fan folder to give some texture and added some Dazzling Diamond glitters on the star and the tree.  The greeting is from Word Play. I used the Stampin’ Markers to color it so I would have more than one color on it.

Material used:

Stamp set: Word Play

CS and paper: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight.

Ink: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green Stampin’ Markers

Tools and punches: 2-1/2 in Circle punch, 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle, Big Shot, Holiday Collection Framelits dies, Fancy Fan embossing folder.

Accessories: Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin, sponge, Dazzling Diamond Glitters

For the second one, I used the Tree Framelit (from the Holiday Collection) to cut out the tree and then I used the ribbon to fill the “space” and create the branches.  To adhere my ribbon, I used the snail adhesive all around the outside edges of the tree, on the back of my paper. The ribbon adds a really nice finish to this card! I cut the star in Champagne Glimmer paper (love that paper!) with the star framelit (also in the Holiday Collection Framelits). I used the Label Collection framelits dies to cut the shape around the tree.  I added a little border made with the Polka Dot Parade DSP and the greeting is from a set in the Holiday mini-catalogue called Voeux Indémodables.

Material used:

Stamp set: Voeux Indemodable

CS and paper: Gumball Green, Real Red, Perfect Polka Parade DSP, Whisper White, Early Espresso, Champagne Glimmer paper.

Ink: Real Red
