Flower Fancy with Vellum Butterflies

Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Vellum; Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Real Red Marker, Riding Hood Red Marker, Old Olive Marker, Certainly Celery Marker; Stamps: Flower Fancy, Messages for Mom; Tools & Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Crystal Effects, Rhinestones, 3/8″ Twill Tape.

I stamped the flowers from Flower Fancy with Chocolate Chip ink and colored them in with Real Red and Certainly Celery Marker. Then, taking a slightly darker color (Riding Hood Red and Old Olive), outlined the images and accented them with Crystal Effects.

The butterflies were made using Vellum card stock and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit in the Big Shot. I colored the rhinestones with red permanent marker (any kind will do). They are adhered to the card with mini glue dots.

Across the bottom, I added a strip of Chocolate Chip card stock punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. Then, I stamped onto the Twill Tape with Real Red ink and a sentiment from Messages for Mom.

Elements of Style Card Samples

Here are several cards made with Elements of Style. It’s a popular stamp but it’s not the style I normally gravitate toward. My upline (hi Cindy!) asked me to help her come up with some ideas for swaps using this set and these are the results:

Version 1

Stamps: Elements of Style; Card stock: Regal Rose, Shades of Spring DSP, Old Olive, Whisper White, Apricot Appeal; Ink: Old Olive Marker, Regal Rose Marker, Old Olive Classic Ink, Pretty in Pink Classic Ink; Accessories: Modern Label Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Big Shot, Sponge Dauber, Circle Rhinestone Brad, Dimensionals, Cropadile, Glue Dots.

Version 5: I think I hate the green butterfly. I may try a different color, maybe white with sponging, or black, or razzleberry?

Christmas Card Idea: Making a Wreath with a Snowflake Stamp

11_18 003 copy

I’m sure you’ve seen the cards with wreaths made using snowflake stamps. I decided to try it using the snowflake from Season of Friendship.

On Whisper White card stock, I stamped the snowflake in Old Olive ink repeatedly around in a circle until I was happy with the fullness and shape of my wreath. Then, I stamped the berries from Berry Christmas in Real Red ink randomly around the wreath. With my glue pen, I dotted some glue on the berries and sprinkled on Romantic Red Glitter.

The wreath is hanging by the bow stamp from Berry Christmas in Real Red ink. Below it, I stamped “Merry Christmas” from Christmas Greetings in Real Red ink.

Using the corner rounder punch, I rounded the corners of the whisper white and layered it onto a piece of Real Red textured card stock.  As for the base, I layered Old Olive with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of vellum, which I stamped using the snowflake stamp from Season of Friendship in Old Olive ink.
