Frosted Bouquet

 

I used the largest, plain, Layering Circles Die to cut the circle from Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I used  the largest, scalloped, Layering Circles Die to cut the border from Smoky Slate Cardstock.

Next, I embossed the Whisper White circle with the Subtle Textured Embossing folder, and glued the two together.

“Merry Christmas” is from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set. I stamped it in Smoky Slate Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting.

 

 

The flowers, leaves and sprigs were made with the First Frost Stamp Set, and Frosted Bouquet Die Set. I stamped the flowers in Lovely Lipstick Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and used the two dies for cutting.  The leaves were cut from Old Olive Cardstock, and the sprigs from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

For the background, I embossed Whisper White Cardstock with the Scripty Embossing Folder, and layered this on a Thick Whisper White card base.

 

Before gluing the bouquet together, I gave the leaves extra sparkle, using two, new products from the Holiday Catalog. First, I spread Shimmery Crystal Effects over the leaves, followed by a sprinkling of Ice Stampin’ Glitter.

Today’s card was inspired by two challenges. The colors are from Global Design Project. 

And, my layout is from Fab Friday.

Daisy Lane Birthday Wishes

Today’s birthday card was inspired by colors: Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black.

Daisy Wishes

 

The color challenge is from Fab Friday.

The first thing I imagined was a trio of Daisy Lane daisies, stamped in Melon Mambo Ink. I used my Bone Folder to give them shape. 

 

I made a YouTube video, a while ago, to show you how I shaped the daisies, which you can see by clicking on this rainbow daisy card.

 

The daisy centers are scraps of 6X6″ Regals Designer Paper in Pumpkin Pie. This dot print is retired, but the four new patterns are in my Product List. The centers were easy to cut with the 1/2″ Circle Punch.

Keeping the color simple, I layered Basic Black Cardstock on a Thick Whisper White card base. The top Whisper White layer is embossed by the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.

 

Beneath the daisies is Whisper White Cardstock, cut with an Ornate Frames Die, and raised on Dimensionals.

“Wishes” is from Well Written Dies, and the swoosh is from Cheers Dies.

 

Thank you for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my YouTube video!

Feels Like Frost Holiday Leaves

Feels Like Frost is such beautiful Designer Paper, it’s fun to add some dimension to it.

By Su Mohr for Fab Friday; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Feels Like Frost DSP, Layering Circles Dies, Nature's Roots Dies, Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, Silver Metallic Thread, Woven Threads Sequins; #christmascards #holidaycards #feelslikefrost #naturesroots #leaves #leavesoncards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #cardtechniques #cardinstructions #dimensiononcards

Feels Like Frost Leaves

 

I began with this Feels Like Frost DSP, which happened to have a leaf the exact size of a Nature’s Roots leaf die. After cutting the DSP to 4″ X 5/14″, I cut the large leaf from the DSP.

 

Then, I cut two smaller leaves from the “left-over” piece of DSP, layered all three leaves for thickness, and embossed them with their Nature’s Roots embossing dies.

Next, I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut circles; one from the DSP, and one from the reverse side of a different pattern from the pack, which is a silver foil.

After gluing the two smaller leaves to the back of the circle, I placed it on Dimensionals in the hole, matching the pattern, eclipse style.

 

The scene looked peaceful to me, so I chose “Peace & Happiness” for the sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas. I used the Classic label Punch for cutting. Before placing it, I attached some Silver Metallic Thread on the back, which is secured with a Dimensional.

The sequins were a last minute idea, so they aren’t in my Product List. They are the Woven Threads Sequins, #149498.

 

My inspiration for the layout was from Fab Friday.

 

Thank you for visiting my blog. I really like these embossed leaves, so an idea is brewing for a Fall card. See you next time!

Perfectly Plaid Pine Tree

I was still thinking of the colors from Sunday’s Paper Players card, so used them for a second Christmas card: Merry Merlot, Pretty Peacock, and Cajun Craze.

Featuring: Perfectly Plaid stamp set, Pine Tree Punch, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Eyelet Lace embossing, Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon; #christmascards #holidaycards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #eyeletlace #perfectlyplaid #trees #christmastrees #cardchallenges #cardsketches

Plaid Tree

 

I began by stamping the tree from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock on Whisper White Cardstock. The coordinating Pine Tree Punch made cutting a breeze.  

 

Merry Merlot is a nice Christmas color for the card base, which I layered with Cajun Craze, and topped with Whisper White.

The two layers were cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies, and the white layer was embossed with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.

 

Using the Fab Fri sketch for inspiration, I cut a strip of In-Color 6X6 DSP in checked, Pretty Peacock. Here’s the sketch.

 

Next, I stamped the sentiment (Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set) in Merry Merlot ink, and used a Merry Christmas label die for cutting.

A star sequin found its way to the top, and a bow of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, completed the sketch.

 

Thank you for visiting today.  The 2019 Holiday Catalog items are available, and I appreciate you shopping at my store.

If you missed the card I posted on Sunday, it’s “Beautiful Boughs,” pictured in my “related” cards below the Products List.

YouTube 3D Daisy Technique

It’s easy and fun making these three-tiered, 3D daisies, with a Bone Folder. My colors are from the Fab Friday challenge.

Swirling Daisies

 

Here is the Fab Friday challenge:

 

I began with the swirly, See A Silhouette Designer Paper, on a Blueberry Bushel card base.

Why not toss some daisies on there? So, I stamped petals from the Daisy Delight and Daisy Lane stamp sets in Petal Pink and Grapefruit Grove inks. Then, I cut the six rounds of petals with their punches. The two sizes of punches are in my Product List, along with their coordinating stamp sets.

 

Next, I curled the petals with a Bone Folder in a downward motion, and glued them together; two large, and the medium on top.

Click on this card, if you’d like to see a YouTube video of how I used the Bone Folder to form the daisies.

 

The leaves were made with a Frosted Bouquet die, and Call me Clover Cardstock, that I embossed with the Subtle Textured embossing folder.

 

“Happy Birthday” is from the Itty Bitty stamp set, stamped in Blueberry Bushel Ink, and cut with a Merry Christmas label die.

I feel “happy” looking at the end result, so I think it makes a good “happy birthday” card.

 

Thank you for stopping by. It’s fun trying new color combinations. It might end up being one of your favorites!

Today’s design is a Laser-Cut wreath, suitable for a guy’s birthday card.

Birthday Wreath

 

The sketch from Fab Friday was my inspiration for today’s card.

 

This pretty wreath of leaves is from the Shimmer Laser-Cut Designer Paper. I used a Layering Circles Die for cutting, and colored it with Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green inks. The “shimmer” is faint, but you can still see it after coloring.

 

The other foliage is from the Bouquet Bunch Die Set. I cut two branches from Thick Whisper White Cardstock, one from Noble Peacock Foil, and one from Soft Suede Cardstock.

 

The rectangle in the sketch is burlap (paper) from Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper.  

 

This “Happy Birthday” from the Piece of Cake Stamp Set is one of my most used sentiments. The font is great, and it fits perfectly in the Classic Label Punch.

For some extra sparkle, I added a bow of Copper Trim, and Iridescent Sequins.
