First Frost by Stampin' Up!

20180820_151525

Here is something different using First Frost Stamp Set #148420. The asymmetric design pops with a bit of Granny Apple Green punched with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch #143721.

This one substitutes an edge of ribbon for the punched strip. The images are shimmered with Clear Wink of Stella #141897.

Gable Box goes Elegant

20180723_103437

Elegant Silver & Shimmer!! Mini Gable Boxes are SO HANDY: #146961 Lustrous White and #145568 Silver. I carefully opened the side seam of this box using an Exacto Knife. That enabled me to emboss each half of the box with the lovely NEW Tufted DYNAMIC Embossing Folder #146335!! It's a "WOW" with texture!!

20180723_103427

I finished off this tufted box with Silver Embossing Powder, Sparkle Glimmer Paper, Silver Foil Paper and 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edged Ribbon. Ready for GIVING! Try it!

Fancy Foil Designer Vellum

2012-11-27 001 004This is NOT a black and white photo. These wedding cards are white Vellum and Silver - so lovely! Unfortunately, my photography skills are very limited.

Tip: to attach the vellum, apply Glue Dots on the backside under the hearts so they don't show from the front!

Weddings

Wedding season is coming soon so here is a sweet idea! FIRST cut a heart shape using the Hearts Collection Framelits #125599. SECOND, add a texture to the same layer using an embossing folder. THIRD, apply Sticky Strip on the backside around the heart cut out. Fourth, attach Strawberry Slush 3/8" Ruffle Trim #130023 on the backside. Do NOT stretch the trim when applying. Lastly, apply the Whisper White cardstock and stamp "through" the heart shape. Attach flowers and finish.

2012-11-27 001 002

The Ruffled Stretch Trim is my favorite item and it's sadly retiring. It's only available while quantities last.

I used the Petite Petals BUNDLE #133152 Wood OR #133155 clear.

Stained Glass Designer Cuts Tutorial

100_1564
Isn't this a lovely effect? It's easy...

100_1561
On the INSIDE of a Designer Cuts card, permanently attach a piece of cardstock vellum over the design. Grab your markers - I chose alots of blues and one green from my Stampin' Up! Many Marvelous Markers. On the inside (which is the BACK of the card front) quickly scribble colors onto the vellum over the cut openings.

100_1562
NO need to be neat - be quick. Then permanently cover the vellum with Very Vanilla cardstock for a tidy appearance.

100_1563
The card front will now have a STAINED GLASS look! It's fun to experiment with different color combos!

A Special Couple

100_0331 
This special Very Vanilla on Vanilla creation was my wedding card for our daughter, Kelly and her groom, Chris! I used the lovely Fun Flowers Bigz Die with the Big Shot. A light sponging of Sahara Sand ink highlights all the great details.

100_0332 
Using a Bone Folder, I curled the petals slightly upward and used a Vintage Brad in the flower center. Very elegant with Basic Pearls that just press on!


Happy I Do Day!
