Matching card - In the Stars

Pin It

Would you believe it if I said that my nearly 4 year old helped out with this one!  Usually I stamp when he isn't about as he likes to try everything.  This card was needed that day for a birthday and we had time so why not. I used the paper that we wrapped the gift in as inspiration, colour and all.  The embossing folder is a recent purchase and added a bit of depth.  We had fun racing the stitching around the edge with a heavy foot to start.  The little details came together bit by bit.  I cut and he said where to put things.  A great joint effort.

Colours:  white, pacific point, wild wasabi
Stamps: in the stars (SU)
Finishing touches:  solid stars embossing folder (craft concepts), stitching, white embossing powder, star punches (unknown), rhinestones, denim bakers twine (the twinery)

Stamp Club November - Christmas ribbon wreath

Pin It
The challenge for this month was to create a 3D project that you could put a gift into.  After a busy week I almost wasn't going to complete the challenge but was inspired by a card by Lyn at The Mango Boys and Me, with the link to create your own christmas wreath from a ribbon.  The new in colour ribbons from Stampin Up looked great.  As the main focus was on the wreath I found a simple fold it box to put it together with.  Without much in the way of Christmas papers I decided to go vintage and used a piece from the Salebration set - Everyday Enchantment.  Pleased with how it turned out.

Colours: cherry cobbler, gumball green, very vanilla, early espresso
Stamps: snow swirled (SU)
Finishing touches:  gumball green stitched ribbon, maraschino bakers twine (the twinery), everyday enchantment DSP (SU)

Determined to Finish my Album

Finally a chance to get back to the album that I have been working on.  While I love the photos and telling the stories the album has been giving me challenges because the pages are stuck in and not easy to scrap on (or photograph).  So I am keeping it simple. I added the torn paper and the newspaper look to reflect the story. This page is the start of 4 or 5 more that I have also started.  I decided to go for starting the basic layout and then I will go back and add the detail and the journalling.  I have had a good clean out of my stash and using the kits I put together it is working well.  I press on.  When I am done I will be sorting through photos and printing them ready for a new way to scrap.
