For this project (that was brought for a shoe box project) I used the Stampin Up (SU) set Flower Shop.
I filled the flower centers with some SU eyelets that I picked up at a rummage sale. The ink colors I used are all SU as well: more mustard; going gray; tempting turquoise.
The larger sized sentiment is also ny SU from the set All Year Cheer I; I picked this stamp up as an individual stamp from a rummage sale. The crystal gems make you want to look inside, right?
As promised, here is the 2nd card front that I made while visiting my stamping buddy. I again brought this home, matted and mounted it. This time however; I played by added different mediums and textures.
On the border I used Scor-Tape and multi colored gold leaf flakes. On the center strip I added some Martha Stewart mini marbles.
To add texture to the zig zag I ran a line of perfect paper adhesive, zigging and zagging following the stamped image then sprinkled with extra fine glitter.
I like both of the swoosh cards and can see using this image a lot in the future!
Thanks Maggi for the fun mini challenge.
when I visited home a couple of weeks ago I was given a rubber stamp of a swoosh image. While I was visiting I played with the sat amp and made a few quick card fronts. I then brought them home and mounted them. This is the first one. Just matted and mounted.
The only thing I did add extra was the Flower Soft. I love the bit of added texture it adds to this otherwise flat design.
I made this card kit in early July and then put it away so it would be ready for when I had a shoebox meeting. I finally put it to use when I met up with my friend Maggi.
I still had one kit left when I headed home so I changed it up just by using a different image and verse from the same Stampin Up set, Words by Wanda.
The original version is on the right; the extra kit that was made up when I returned home is shown on the left.
I have a few more projects to share from my craft day, so be sure to stop back!
This is the 2nd offering from my visit to my old house. I met up with my friend Maggi and she shared this design with me. I seldom do black and white…I will have to bring out this color combo more often as I really like it. The flowers are from the Stampin Up set called Flower Shop, and has a matching punch.
Look closely at the metallic sticker. See me holding the camera in the reflection? It is a small sticker and perfect for mailing in an envelope and not need additional postage.
The sentiment is mounted on scallop punches by Stampin Up. I don’t recall who the sentiment was by. Maybe you recognize it and can clue me in?
One last look before you go on about your day…I still use the first Cuttlebug Folder that I ever bought, see that swirl embossed in the background? I’ll bet you use the first one you purchased a lot too.
Maggi sent me home with extra black and white papers and a few embossed backgrounds. You should see me using them up in the next few posts. See you then~!
This past week I made a visit to the old house and met up with my Stampin’ Buddy, Maggi. I of course brought projects with me to craft while we chatted and Maggi got out her supplies too!
Today I’ll share with you the first card I put together. It was a card kit I believe set to me through Maggi from my old SU demo, Sally. I brought home the pieces and added my own stamps to the sentiment piece.
Here is a close up of the sentiment piece. The list of supplies is as follows:
Music – Great Impressions #F156
Musical Note: All Night Media 375F
Mini Note: Single Note AA024 by Stampendous!
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Distress ink – Old Paper
I love the metallic striped vellum and the shimmery card stock.
Be sure to stop back to see more of the creations from my play date!
For today’s sample for the Orange-Yellow-Green color challenge I went looking for cardstock in those colors. I also used those colors in the stamped background. In this case I used Memento’s Dandelion and Tangelo Inks; and Stampin’ Up’s Kiwi Kiss.
The sentiment is actually a left over sample of spiralli that I had tried back in June. It’s been laying on my desk and since it is the right color, all I needed to do was add it to my design to finish off. The 2 punches and stamped sentiment are all by Stampin’ Up.
Were you interested in seeing the original spiralli design?…June’s Post on spiralli
The background is embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder; the lovely border is a die cut by Spellbinder by the name of Scallop Borders Two.
And one last look before you head out about your day…
I made the stamped background using the inks as previously mentioned using the long retired Stampin’ Up set; Petal Prints. After the stamping was completed on the white card stock I sponged using small daubers in Yellow and Orange. Then I edged more heavily in orange. Finally, using a Jelly Roll Stardust pen I added some glimmer to the flower petals.
