White Vellum Wedding Roses

I love white craft ink stamped or embossed on this great SU Cardstock Vellum! The Cardstock Vellum is so rich and transparent, it's the best I've ever found! For this card I stamped the roses on vellum and embossed them with white embossing powder to use as the background. I embossed the heart the same as the background on Vellum and cut it out and attached it to Brushed Silver CS and cut out around the heart to mount on Whisper White CS with a Silver Waffle Paper Ruffle attached around it. The Vellum was attached to the silver CS heart with Mini Silver brads, while the background embossed vellum was attached to the card base with small strategically placed pieces of sticky strip so as not to show through the velllum!
All items found in the Stampin' Up! Catalog, main stamp set found in the Holiday mini!
~Stamps: You are Loved, Teeny Tiny Wishes.
~Paper: Brushed Silver CS, Whisper White CS, Silver Waffle Paper, Vellum Cardstock.
~Ink: White Craft Pad.

Floral Heart Valentine

Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving! I got all my Christmas stuff put up which makes me super happy!
However I'm done making Christmas cards so I'm on to Valentines now! This card uses You are Loved set again from the Holiday Mini! This time I used Real Red and Garden Green along with the Stripes Embossing Folder, Real Red Satin Ribbon and the small Heart Punch and Tiny Flower Punch. This is a simple card also using Shimmery White CS, Basic Rhinestones, Teeny Tiny Wishes and some Dazzling Details Glitter! The Heart I backed up to Real Red CS and free hand cut around to frame the stamped heart!

Pastel Valentine

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I decided to post this today!
Happy Thanksgiving!
Another card made with this lovely You are Loved set available in the Holiday Mini Catalog!
I embossed half of the Pink Pirouette cardfront with the Stripes Embossing Folder then added Dazzling Details glitter to the stripes. After stamping the center flower group I punched it out with the oval punch and used a marker to add a little shading to the flowers and then sponged around the edge of the oval and added it to the frame. I love this soft look!

~Paper: Pink Pirouette CS, Shimmery White CS.

Snowflake Bulb

I never do just one Christmas Card set, I make a few different cards in sets of 6 or 8! So this is another easy to mail card that uses a sticker in the center of the Snowflake instead of a rhinestone. The background was stamped using the Christmas Collage Background and even though I cleaned the stamp, there seemed to be some left over red ink on the stamp so instead of River Rock I got more like Blushing Bride color! Whoops! I added some snowflakes with Baja Breeze and embossed a few with Silver E.P. over the top then sponged Baja and River Rock inks around the snowflakes. I added a punched Ornament top to the circle which seemed to add the finishing touch.The inside of the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder was sponged with Baja ink before imbossing the frame. The circle was traced and cut out to fit in the circle that was part of the stamp.
~Stamps: Pines and Poinsettias, Christmas Lodge, Snow Swirled, Serene Snowflakes, Northern Hearts, Christmas Collage. (way to use those stamps!)
~Paper: Shimmery White CS, Baja Breeze CS, Silver Glimmer Paper.
~Ink: Baja Breeze, River Rock, Versa Mark.
~Accessories: Big Shot, Framed Tulips Folder, Snowflake Punch, Ornament Punch, Silver Embossing Powder, Sponge, Dimensionals, Crystal Effects.

Sendable Christmas Card

It's really hard to layer up a card with brads, rhinestones and pearls, ect. and still send them through the mail without extra postage.So I'm always looking for ways to improvise and still get the detail effect! Instead of brads on each side I punched out 1/4" circles from the Red Glimmer Paper and glued them on to each side. I added the main focal point flowers to the scallop circle with Dimensionals which were embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and Riding Hood Red Craft Ink. The Glimmer Papers add alot too! I also sprayed the Riding Hood Red base card with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz!
~Stamps: Pines and Poinsettias, Christmas Lodge.
~Paper: Riding Hood Red CS, Garden Green CS, Shimmery White CS, Red and Silver Glimmer Paper, Holly Berry Bouquet DSP.
~Ink: Riding Hood Red Classic and Craft pads and Marker, Garden Green Marker, Versa mark Pad, River Rock Pad.

Sparkling Snowflakes

It's been a few weeks since I have posted, my computer has been acting up so hopfully I can get back on track! This card was simple to make and the picture although darker then I'd like, shows off the shimmery really well! I cut out some flowers with Silver Glimmer paper using the retired Baskets and Blooms XL die and these tear drop pieces were left over from the centers of the flowers so I utilized them on this card around the snowflakes along with punched circles!
I coated the top of the snowflake embossing folder with Baja ink and then embossed the snowflakes, I then added some Moonlight Accent ink on the centers of the snowflakes.
~Stamps: A Wish For Peace
~Paper: Base Card; Whisper White CS, Silver Glimmer Paper, Shimmery White CS.
~Ink: Baja Breeze.
~Accessories: Big Shot, Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, 1/4" Circle Punch, 1/8" Circle Punch, Moonlight Smooch Accent Ink, Crystal Effects.
