The Open Sea birthday card

This is the other card from my January workshop.  I really wanted to highlight the Adventure Bound paper stack because it is hard to see the patterns in the catalog.
The cardbase is Smoky Slate.  We stamped the splatter from Gorgeous Grunge in Smoky Slate ink then added the DSP.  The sentiment is from the December Paper Pumpkin.  The anchor from the Open Sea was stamped onto white cardstock, and then we stamped the small swoosh from Work of Art over it.  The colors we used are Smoky Slate and Island Indigo (stamped off once).
Happy stamping!

Resist paper and Blendabilities!

This card was from my January workshop, and it features some new products.  The cardbase is Crumb Cake, and we stamped the flower from Petal Potpourri all over the card with Crumb Cake ink.  Then we stamped the flower onto white cardstock using Memento ink and colored it with Blendabilities.  We punched out the flower using the coordinating flower medallion punch.
The paper strip with the leaves is from the Irresistably Yours DSP pack, which is  a Saleabration free item.  I love it because you can make your own DSP in any color!  The paper looks all white, and the pattern is clear embossed.  You just sponge on any color you like!  Here we used Wild Wasabi.
Happy stamping!

January Paper Pumpkin valentine


The January Paper Pumpkin kit makes adorable little treat bags for Valentine's Day, but I wanted to make some cards with the kit.  I decided to go with a quilt kind of look by cutting the paper strips into squares.
This would be really easy to do with any DSP, not just what was in this kit.  The card base is Pink Pirouette, and I layered Real Red on top of it.  The squares are 1 1/2 inches each.
Happy stamping!

Big News wedding card

I needed a tailored wedding card, not something I've had to create before!  Thankfully, I have the Big News set, which has a great variety of sentiments.  I chose Night of Navy for the card base and sentiment layer.  I used Gold Soiree DSP; it has gold on one side of every sheet!  I stamped the sentiment with gold ink and embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I used the Labels framelits for the sentiment and layer.
Happy stamping!

Many Merry Stars ornament

This ornament was made with the Many Merry Stars kit.  The kit includes everything you need to make and decorate 26 boxes in 6 sizes!  I love the paper on the front of this box and the dimension it adds!

Serene Silhouettes flower card

I can't believe I forgot to post this card that we made at my October workshop!  The cardbase and ribbon are Lost Lagoon.  We stamped the circle image from Serene Silhouettes in Lost Lagoon onto Soft Sky and punched it out.  The scallop circle is from All is Calm DSP.  We punched Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper with the confetti stars border punch and adhered it to Soft Sky cardstock.  The stars were glued onto the card as well.  We each added a custom sentiment using the alphabet rotary stamp.
Happy stamping!
