Global Stamping Friends Hop 14

Hello and welcome to another great Global Stamping Friends blog hop. I truly look forward to this blog post every month because there are so many talented demos around the world participating. This month is all about Halloween and can you believe it, it will be here at the end of the month.

This is the fun 3×3 card that I created using the amazing Spooky Night Designer Series Paper that coordinates with the great cat stamp set. I finally got some ink on my owl stamp set and I am so loving how this turned out.

I also had so much fun creating the inside and using a few other types of stamps in the set too! I used Lemon Lime Twist (a new in color) and Pacific Point for the potion colors. I may have to do some more cards with just these potions. Also I absolutely love the witches hat too in this set.. Clearly I just love this set and I highly recommend you getting it before Halloween (which is coming up quick).

So if you love this card and project I have a super special for you. I am starting a Freebie Friday at least until Christmas (we will see how this goes) and you can get the following items as long as you place an order through my online store above.

Celebrate Tree

Wow can you believe how close Christmas actually is?? I created this fun and easy card for a card swap that I am doing at Onstage. Onstage is the conference that all the Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are able to attend. This is my very first one and I am really excited!!! If you would like to join me next time all you have to do is join my team. The link to do that can be found at the top of any of my pages. Also at the bottom of this post is a fun graphic about why you should join.

I wanted to use one of our great mask for this card and at $6 for 4 of them they really are a wonderful deal and something that you should add to your collection. I wanted to keep this card really simple, and minimal stamping. I was also really excited about the sentiment (once I finally figured it out) because it can be given to anyone. I did end up using a variety of supplies for this card but I really wanted to show how you can create beautiful cards in unique ways. I was excited with how my gold stars came out on top of the tree. Just add a little bit of sparkle to the entire card.

Make sure to add these items to your Christmas wish list.

A little Sympathy

Hello,

It is always so difficult to find the right words to say or worse find a card that says what you want to say to a friend that has lost a loved ones. This happened to me a few days ago when a friend of mine shared that her aunt had passed. I was trying to think of what I could use to create a card and it hit me! So I used our limited edition Thoughtful branches and I think it came out perfect. This was a really simple card but that was what I was going for.

Make sure if you like this stamp set to get it before the end of August because after that it will be gone!

Tips and Tricks: 

Tree Top: I used the new Emerald Envy (available for purchase Sept 1) glittery emboss powder. Now if you know me I love emboss powder and glitter so this truly brings my loves together. It gave this card a beautiful added dimension that is not truly captured on the picture.

Keep it Simple: This card is really simple. I used 2 colors of card stocks to add my layers, 1 stamp set, and 3 ink colors.

Paper Choices: Mint Macaroon is my base card color and then I used Very Vanilla to put my tree and stamped images on. I like that Very Vanilla doesn’t have the brightness to it like Whisper white which was what I was looking for.
