Wood Textures Thank You

 Beginning with the new Thank You die, I make it into wood by using the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  It’s made to look, and feel, like real wood by layering it three times with cardstock.

TIP: I make use of the retired Chocolate Chip color cardstock for layering.


Sticking with the woodsy theme, I select the log print from the same Wood Textures DSP pack. Using my Paper Snips, I cut a section of logs to slant like the sketch at Global Design Project. And, the largest, round log is my circle in the sketch.

I decide on a Crumb Cake card base, layered with Basic Black cardstock, and layered with patterned, Crumb Cake, Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper. See how I’m letting the DSP do the work? I glue it all together, and my masculine, thank you card is complete.

Scroll down to see the short supply list. I was impressed by the small mess I made!

Thank you Global Design Project Team for the inspiration.

Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces Love You to Pieces

May I begin by saying, I LOVE jigsaw puzzles! My grandmother always had a card table set up with an ongoing jigsaw puzzle. We would sit for hours putting these puzzles together. It was so exciting to see this bundle in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog. Imagine all of the pretty pictures you could die cut apart, and assemble on a card.

This is my first one:

Love You to Pieces

The colors were inspired by this week’s Paper Players challenge.

The layout is from CAS(E) this sketch.

My first decision was the leaf print from Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper. The pretty print would blend nicely with a Crumb Cake card base, and a 1/16″ border of Lemon Lime Twist would add just enough brightness. Can you see there is some texture on the Crumb Cake card base? That’s from the new Subtle Dynamic embossing folder, which I couldn’t wait to use!

To mimic the sketch, I found the right size Layering Circle die to cut into the panel. Then, I placed the square Puzzle Pieces die over my circle to cut the puzzle pieces.

To introduce the Grapefruit Grove (Calypso Coral) color, I die cut a second circle to fill in the hole. I glued four of the puzzle pieces in place, and raised two pieces on dimensionals. There is also a larger puzzle piece die in the set which I used to cut the Crumb Cake piece holding the sentiment, “One piece at a time.” How clever the sentiments are!

I added a touch more Grapefruit Grove with a bit of Nature’s Twine tucked under the puzzle piece, attached with a Glue Dot.
TIP: I rolled the Glue Dot between my fingers to make it narrow like the twine.

The envelope flap is embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder.

Be on the lookout for more of my cards using this Love You to Pieces bundle, because I know it will be a favorite of mine. If you’d like to start making your own jigsaw puzzles, scroll on down to shop in my store.

Serene Garden Wedding Card

The Serene Garden Bundle was at the top of my list when I saw it in the new catalog for the first time in April. I was thrilled when it was on the pre-order list in May. Now, in June, it’s available to everyone. The graceful lines, and the bird are sensational. I couldn’t wait to see how the images would look stamped with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This picture shows how it shines.

I started by stamping the large corner floral, and the top corner leaf in Versamark. The bird, butterfly and flowers were stamped in Versamark on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock. After sprinkling all the images with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and tapping the excess free, I used the Heat Tool to melt the powder.

The gold embossed lines made coloring with Stampin’ Blends easy. The leaves are Light Old Olive, the stems are Bronze, the flowers are Light and Dark Pink Pirouette, the butterfly is Light Daffodil Delight & Light Pumpkin Pie, and the bird is Light Pool Party.


The bird, flowers and butterfly have dies for cutting, making it easy to add dimension to the garden scene.

The sentiment, “Wedding Wishes,” is from the Floral Phrases Stamp Set. I used the smallest Stitched Shape Ovals die for cutting.

For the inside, I completed the sentiment from the Floral Phrases Stamp Set. The words received the Gold Embossing treatment as well, and I duplicated the hand-cut corner leaf. The decorative, horizontal line from the Serene Garden stamp set is stamped in Powder Pink ink.

Back to the card front, and the finishing touch, the Iridescent Sequins! Aren’t they gorgeous? This card wouldn’t be the same without them.

I decorated the envelope flap with a piece of Pool Party cardstock, matching the color of the bird, and embossed it with a Petal Pair Embossing Folder for texture.


Now it’s time to use the Blog Hop Line-up below to see which “B” the rest of my Pals are using. Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.
