Breaking Out the Red Glimmer Paper!


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.

Happy Birthday to a Classic {Masculine Card}

Time for another masculine card. The guys I know like cars, so I knew I would get a lot of mileage out of this stamp set, To a Classic.

I stamped the Baja Breeze card base with the little speedometer from To a Classic in Baja Breeze and Basic Gray ink. The main image was stamped in Memento Gray ink, on Whisper White card stock. Then, I stamped the image again on scrap White card stock and colored the car with Copic Markers. I cut out the car and attached it to the main image with stampin dimensionals.

The white was matted on a piece of Basic Gray card stock. The gray patterned paper is from Urban Oasis DSP (retired). I attached the stamped layer to the base with stampin dimensionals. The white brads are 5/8″ Basic Brads.

Father’s Day Motorcycle Cards

I FINALLY made a “manly” card! This is really hard for me because by definition, cards are not very manly. Men just don’t care about receiving cards; they probably throw them out 5 minutes after reading them. Not that my husband does that. Nevermind that he can’t because I take them back 5 minutes after he reads them and I save them!

With Father’s Day coming up, masculine cards are the project of the day. This motorcycle stamp, aptly called Motorcycle, from the Stampin Up Summer Mini catalog is perfect for Father’s Day. Most dads love motorcycles, whether they have one or wish they had one.

The card above uses Crumb Cake base, layered with new Cherry Cobbler. The Gray DSP is from Urban Oasis (one of the best collections EVER in my opinion). I stamped the motorcycle in Memento Black ink and colored it in with Copic Markers. The sentiment is from Well Scripted, stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White. I punched it out with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and layered it onto a Metal Edge Tag. Then, I added 3 small Silver Brads and using Stampin Dimensionals, layered the tag onto a 1 3/4″ Circle Punch of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.

This version uses a different color scheme and different sentiment stamp. The base here is Marina Mist, layered with Crumb Cake and the Urban Oasis DSP. Again, I stamped the image in Memento Black and colored in with Copic Markers. The image was layered onto Marina Mist and attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals. For the sentiment, I used And Many Mower, stamped in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White. I punched it out with the Large Oval Punch and layered it onto a Scallop Oval punched from Marina Mist.
