Basket of Wishes

We had such a great turn out for our “Boys to Men” challenge! Thank you so much to everyone who played along and hope you will enjoy the next challenge just as much – a “Harvest Hoe-Down” just in time for Fall. We have gotten just a little taste of Fall this week in Michigan and it was the perfect time to make this card. I chose the pretty stamp set, Basket of Wishes, and had a nice, relaxing time coloring the image with my Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils.

 

It’s All in the Details
  • The card base is 4 1/4″x 11″ in Early Espresso. Copper Foil sheet was cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and the patterned DSP from Wood Textures DSP stack was cut with a thinlit and trimmed to 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″.
  • The basket image was stamped in Basic Gray Archival Ink and colored with SU’s Watercolor Pencils till I was satisfied with the results. Don’t be afraid to mix your colors! Then, it was cut with a Layering Square Framelit and layered onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock that was cut with the scallop square framelit.
  • A leaf from Seasonal Layers Thinlits was cut from another patterned DSP from Wood Textures (gotta use those scraps, right?). Copper Metallic Thread was placed onto the cardbase, then the leaf was adhered as well, then the stamped image was popped up on dimensionals.
  • The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder. Then, it was cut with the Layering Oval Framelits. A piece of Copper Trim was cut, then carefully pulled it apart, then adhered to the card base and the sentiment was popped up over it.

Our Wedding Season Wraps Up with a Beautiful Bouquet

By Debbie Mageed, Beautiful Bouquet, Detailed Floral Thinlits, Wedding, Stampin Up

 

This past weekend was Round Three in our wedding season and I was fresh out of cards (can you tell that we don’t go to many weddings?). I needed something elegant and quick! I found the perfect sentiments for both the front and the inside in the new stamp set, Beautiful Bouquet.

 

It’s All in the Details
  • I went to my retired Brushed Gold Cardstock and cut up a scrap I had (yes, I am hoarding this divine cardstock) with the Detailed Floral Thinlits, using the Precision Base Plate and the Big Shot Die Brush to remove the little pieces. These two items are essentials for crafters like me – I want pretty but no hassle cards!
  • These two pieces were then layered onto Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock, adhered with Tombow glue.
  • The sentiment was stamped on Very Vanilla with the retired Encore Gold Ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment was cut with the oval framelit and brushed gold paper was cut with the scallop oval framelit. These were adhered together and popped up with dimensionals.
  • The ribbon was wrapped around the front of the card, tied into a knot then a bow was made, and glue dots were used to hold it all down.
  • The Finishing Touch was just a couple of basic pearls on the centers of the flowers.
