Breaking Out the Red Glimmer Paper!

valentines2013

I am in LOVE with the Red Glimmer Paper, so I hoard it. I use it sparingly because I have 1 sheet left and if for some reason it’s ever discontinued, I will be sure to have ONE SHEET LEFT! I suppose Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to use something I love to make a special card for someone I love.

This is a clean and simple card that I made using the Ciao Baby stamp set from the Spring 2013 catalog. It coordinates with the Petite Curly Label Punch, which was FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. I also got the Pretty Petites stamp free from SAB to coordinate with the punch.

The base is Crumb Cake card stock, layered with Early Espresso and Urban Oasis Designer Series Paper (retired). That pack of paper is one of my all time top 10 favorites–it’s beautiful. Good thing it’s a Digital Download available for My Digital Studio now!

For the focal point, I used Early Espresso Baker’s Twine and knotted both ends in a double knot, attaching it to the card with mini glue dots. Then, I colored direct to stamp with Early Espresso and Real Red Markers, and stamped on Whisper White card stock. I punched them out with the Petite Curly Punch.

The hearts are punched from the Red Glimmer Paper using the Heart to Heart Punch. I attached everything to the card on top of the Baker’s Twine with stampin dimensionals.

A Little Birdie Birthday Card

This is an oldie but goodie. I love the A Little Birdie Told Me stamp set. I made this using some scraps I had on my desk and it came together nicely.  The card base is Crumb Cake, layered with Chocolate Chip card stock that I embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.

The stamp was colored in with Copic markers and I attached the party hat with a glue dot. The background card stock is Gumball Green.

For the sentiment, I stamped it on Whisper White and then punched it out with the 1″ Circle Punch matted with Gumball Green. The strip of paper at the bottom is from Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper, notched into a V at the end.

Modern Mix Mother’s Day Card

By mixing the cute silhouette of a little girl and a bold graphic print, this Mother’s Day card has the right blend of modern and traditional. Using the Stampin UP window panes (soon to be retired so get them while they last) makes the silhouette image look like a picture hanging on a wallpapered wall.

I stamped the silhouette, an upcoming hostess set called Priority Mail from the new catalog (to be released June 1), in chocolate chip ink on whisper white card stock, then matted it with early espresso card stock and placed it behind one of the window panes to create a picture frame look. The ribbon slides through slits on either side of the window pane to hold the frame in place. The ribbon I used here is Crumb Cake Seam Binding topped with Early Espresso Quilted Satin Ribbon.

For the base, I used Crumb Cake card stock, layered with Early Espresso and the green chevron patterned paper from Summer Smooches DSP.

The sentiment is from Messages for Mom, stamped in Lucky Limeade ink on Whisper White. I matted the strip with Early Espresso card stock, with a Crumb Cake Small Oval Punch and Early Espresso Designer Label Punch in the back. And because it’s for Mother’s day, what mom doesn’t like pearls? I added two Basic Pearls to the label just for Mom.
