Piccolo Snowflake Ornament and Stitched Piccolo Snowflakes create a soft, pastel winter scene in pale blush pinks.  A shimmery Ric Rac Ribbon and some help from Classic Ornament and Ornament Caps and Hooks make it easy to combine textures, shimmer and shine.  Sequins from Birch Press Designs add the finishing touch!

Hi, Jean Okimoto here, with a pretty-in-almost-pink design for you today.  Mixing, matching and layering diecut design elements can be challenging - but a coordinated color scheme makes it easy.  Begin with a basic layout, select your favorite colors, add sequins or glitter...and there's your card!

Cut Classic Ornament from pale blush cardstock.  Cut Piccolo Snowflake Ornament from light pink mirror cardstock.  Cut the ornament hook and cap from light pink mirror cardstock.

Cut the narrowest Ric Rac Ribbon and two of the Stitched Piccolo Snowflakes from iridescent blush cardstock.  

Cut a 3/4" x 4-1/2" strip of rose gold glittered cardstock.

Attach everything to a A-6 (4-5/8" x 6-1/4") card of natural cardstock.

Add beautiful Fairy Tale Sequins for a sparkly finishing touch.  View the Birch Press Design Sequins Collection - they're so pretty you'll want them all.

Happy 2015

  

Good Morning Marnie here and I wan to with you The Happiest New Year!  Did everyone PARTY all Night Long?  We had a lovely time with Family and I ate way too much junk food which is our tradition.  But oh my it was yummy.  I have a bit of salt overload today though need to drink lots of water.    I'm here with a Memory Box Celebration Card today.

Here is a little bit of FUN for you all.  First on Kraft cardstock, with the Snowfall Stamp I stamped VersaMark all around the edges with the little dots and embossed with the Imagine Crafts Black Embossing Powder.  This did leave a bit of a blank in the middle but I just punched it out with a circle.  Then I foam taped the piece onto a Black cardstock mat.  In the center I cut out the Urban Numbers from Gold Mirror Card and added a bit of Diamond Stickles around them.  They are so much more glittery in person it's hard to capture.  The corner bow was also cut out of the Gold Mirror Card and added on top.  And lastly it was all layered onto Gold and then onto a Kraft Card.  Pretty and Simple for the New Year.   So Modern!

Merry Christmas

It is hard to believe that Christmas is in 3 days! If you haven't started your holiday crafting, you better get moving! Here is a CAS card to get you inspired and motivated. I used the triangle tree that I white embossed. I tried a few different watercolors, but went with coloring the triangles with distress markers and blended them out with a water brush.

I was going to add gold bling, but it looked to monochromatic. The red bling added just the right pop to this elegant card.

Wishing all of you a peaceful and blessed holiday season.

Festive Holiday Tableware!

Hello all,

I hope this Christmas season is finding you all well and happy! I have really been enjoying getting ready for our son's 2nd Christmas but the first one where he will be able to open presents and really be an active participant of the festivities!

I have a few things to show you today, done by one of our fantastic instructors, Therese P. at our store The Stamp Addict in San Diego. She did these for her holiday tables and brought them into the store to show off and I just had to share them with you!

  DSC_1659-2-2

She made a little Candle light holder for part of her centerpiece using star dies for the cut outs and the Snowflake Favor Box die as a base....isn't she clever!

DSC_1661-2

She also made a cute angel out of one of those boxes to put in her centerpiece as well and decorated the angels dress (box) with the Starfall stamp!

DSC_1662-2

Then she made these name placeholders....just add a foldover name topper and some ribbon...and voila!

DSC_1658-2

And these napkin holders...all using the box die as a base and poinsettia die for the topper with some ribbon to add some bling! Hint, to get the napkin through the box, she used an all over/repositionable circle punch on two of the sides of the box.

DSC_1657-2

I love what she did with all of them...I know her Christmas table setting will look fabulous this year and I hope what I showed you inspires you to try a few ideas out for your next celebration too!

Merry Christmas!

Poinsettia Bloom Trio - Holiday Card

 

 

Good Morning Marnie here!  We're counting down exactly 7 days until Christmas if you count today.  Only 7 Days to make cards, craft, shop, bake, wrap, ship, decorate, and so on.  I'm almost done this year only a couple more little things then all the wrapping and baking to come.  Our house has come down with a cold unfortunately but they will be healthy by the Holiday's so that's AWESOME.  But I adore all of the preparations.  It is my favorite time and I always seem to be stuck for another idea for a few more cards, last minute?  Here's one for you.   

 

It's a pretty simple card so you can create quickly just cut the Big Word Pop Curve out of the the Cranberry Moroccan paper and snip off the talky bubble piece to make one giant hill.  Now add the Poinsettia Bloom Trio, I cut it out of 2 shades of red to add a bit of interest.  For the centers this time  I added Mercury Glass Stickles.  Tuck some of the Forest Pine Branch into the Poinsettias.  This entire piece gets built onto the Blueberry Gingham mat and layered onto a Kraft Card.  I did stamp Merry Christmas as my greeting.
