Christmas in July Blog Hop

It's been pretty hot outside these days, and you may not be thinking of Christmas quite yet, but you will be once you take a look at the cards we have for you in this Blog Hop!

At our last Tri-City team meeting we did a swap of Christmas cards.  Such gorgeous cards!

I almost forgot how much I love Cherry Cobbler cardstock, and when it's with Whisper White cardstock and glimmer paper die cut snowflakes - it's simply stunning!
To get that curve in the Whisper White layer, I used my Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and then glued the die cut piece for the 'snow'.

Merry Christmas is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink, punched using my Classic Label punch and popped up with dimensionals.  Using my Seasonal Layers Thinllits, I die cut the snowflakes.  They are so pretty done with Silver Glimmer Paper!

I just love the fonts & sentiments in the Christmas Pines set.  Once again, I used Cherry Cobbler ink, and my Pretty Label punch for a lovely shape around the sentiment.  Popped up again with dimensionals.

Happiest of Days

A week or so ago I decided to do something that I've wanted done since I was a teen.  Here's the story: I have two baby teeth which is apparently not all that uncommon. Well, these baby teeth are large, thus crowding the teeth in my lower jaw.  So, I had those two teeth removed yesterday, and as it turns out, I am a BIG BABY!  I wanted attention, someone to take care of me, bring me homemade applesauce I made the day before and blankets and, and and..  See - big baby.  But, that was yesterday.  Today I'm almost back to being my usual self.  By the way, the story doesn't end here.  In a few weeks I'll be sporting braces.  Not the train-track kind, they'll be invisible.

Enough about my teeth, and on to today's card!  I've been having so much fun playing with the new Embossing Paste from Stampin' Up! Creating cool textured backgrounds is a snap!  You'll soon be seeing more cards I've made using the Embossing Paste. 

This 'diamond' pattern was achieved using one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  I used Washi Tape to hold down the cardstock and mask, then applied the Embossing Paste using SU's Palette Knives.  How easy is that!!

Isn't this font lovely!  The stamp is from the Happiest of Days set <--gorgeous stamp set!!
 Once I stamped the sentiment, I die cut it using my Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I had previously die cut flowers from the Support Ribbon Framelits Dies, and on a whim, placed them behind the die cut sentiment.  Pretty darn tootin' cute! 

A close up of the texture.   What's also great about this is if you don't yet have a Big Shot, adding Embossing Paste to the card will give your cards pizzazz!

Colour Theory & Colourful Seasons

I have a treat for you today!  As mentioned in a previous post, I did a workshop where the ladies all made four cards, and I'll be showing you one of those cards today, plus a similar card I made for an anniversary.  Two cards today!

I kind of had my doubts about the Colour Theory DSP, but I'm sooooo over it! The ombre paper I used for the layer is fabulous, and in that same DSP pack was the paper I die cut for the flowers. It has a crackle look it it, adding another dimension to the flowers - love!!

 I used the dies from the Colourful Seasons bundle for the flowers.  The sentiment & branch, also from the Colourful Seasons bundle are both stamped in Crumb Cake ink. I used my Pretty Label punch for the sentiment, then added a few Glitter Enamel Dots for a wee sparkle.

Some of the flowers were adhered with my Fine Tip Glue Pen, and the balance of the flowers, plus the sentiment are popped up with dimensionals.  I finally got to use my mini dimensionals - they are the perfect size for small cutouts!  

Here are a couple of pic from the workshop

Now for my second card - a lovely 60th Anniversary card.  Once again I used paper from the Colour Theory DSP., for the layer and flowers.  I'm always happy to bring out the Glimmer Paper, and especially for such a momentous occasion! Sixty years is extraordinary!!
 I used my Happy Birthday Thinlit, and easily cut 'Birthday' from it, then die cut the 6 & 0 from my Large Numbers Framelits.  The 'th' and word Anniversary stamped on the inside of the card are both from the Number of Years stamp set.

The picture doesn't do this card justice - the glimmer is spectacular!

Here's the inside of the card.  I used Smoky Slate ink for the sentiment.  I hope you can see the Whisper White die cut flowers.  They add a simple, yet elegant touch.
