Wondrous Wreath Joy Christmas Card

Here is one of the cards we made at my Card Club workshops this month featuring the Wondrous Wreath Stamps and Framelits.  Isn't it gorgeous?

The word "Joy" is included in the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Set.  We die cut it using a piece of Gold Foil Paper.  It's really pretty!

Striped Scallop Die Cards

Here are the projects we made at my recent Big Shot class.  Can you believe we made all these three cards using only one die-cut of Striped Scallop Die

It all started with this piece. 

We cut it off at the third row from the bottom as shown above.

We made this card first using the following technique. 

A small amount of Snail Adhesive (you can use "removable adhesive) was used at each corner of the die-cut to secure onto a Whisper White card stock and then we colored the entire piece with a mixture of Lost Lagoon ink and alcohol in a Stampin' Spritzer.  Sorry my picture doesn't look like Lost Lagoon color but it's a lot darker than this:)

Here is a better picture for you.  We let it dry for about 5-10 minutes and then carefully separated the pieces.  We used the top piece for the first card shown above and the bottom piece for the card shown next. 

I love this card!!!  The scallop die-cut piece is adhered to a piece of Window Sheet as a card front.  The small pearls at the top row of the scallop die really add an additional beauty to the card. 

I love this color combo - Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Whisper White!!! 

Here is the third card we made adding a small piece of the Striped Scallop at the bottom of card front.  Isn't it pretty? 

I hope you can see the shimmery accent on the flowers.  I filled a Stampin' Spritzer with some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and alcohol to apply the shimmery accent.  These flower die-cuts are from the new Flower Frenzy Bigz L Die in the annual catalog. 


Thank you for stopping by today.  Have a great day!  GO HAWKS!!!!

Kinda Eclectic Butterfly Card & NEW Weekly Deals

Here is another project we did at my Card Club workshops last month featuring the lovely Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set.  So pretty!!!

This card was one of the make and take projects at Convention this year and I learned a very cool technique using the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  I hope you can see the lightly colored honeycomb image in the background.  Follow these simple steps:
  1. Open your Honeycomb Embossing Folder and apply Sahara Sand ink gently to the side with fine lines of the honeycomb image by holding your ink pad. 
  2. Place your card (folded in half) on the opposite side of your embossing folder and carefully close your embossing folder.  
  3. Gently tap your embossing folder to get some light impression on your card.
Isn't it simple???  I even used the same technique for my envelope:)  I love the stamp set!!!



Supply List
Stamps - Kinda Eclectic 
Paper - Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Hello Honey, Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack, Vellum Card Stock
Ink - Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey
Tools and Accessories - Elegant Butterfly Punch, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Linen Thread, Basic Pearls
