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.

Square Scallop Lattice Card

Another card I made using the new colors–this time with Marina Mist. The base is Crumb Cake that I die cut with the Big Shot and Bigz Square Scallop Die. Then, I took a 3.5″ x 7″ piece of Whisper White card stock, folded in half, and adhered it to the square scallop. This is the “card” part that opens up.

With the Bigz Lattice Die, I cut Early Espresso card stock, adhered it to a 3″ square of Marina Mist with Mini Glue Dots and layered both onto a 3 1/4″ square of Early Espresso. That was then attached to the Whisper White.

In the center of the lattice, I added 4 pieces of Crumb Cake “scrap” or the negative pieces from running the Lattice Die through the Big Shot with Crumb Cake card stock. Those were adhered with SNAIL adhesive.
