When I created my card for the Global Design Project Design Team Color Challenge, I started with this card…but wasn’t entirely happy with it so I decided to create a second card that became my Design Team Submission. Since this card was created, photographed and ready to go, I thought I would share it with you today!
Card Base: Crumb Cake Cardstock cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch. Scored/Folded at 4 1/4 inches for a standard sized card that fits perfectly in our Medium Sized Envelopes.
2nd Layer: Crumb Cake Cardstock, run through the Big Shot with the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I then colored the berries with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker and outlined a few of the leaves with my Lemon-Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker. I wrapped the ribbon around the bottom portion of the layer before adhering it to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Embellishments: Coming Soon: Tutti-Frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins in Lemon-Lime Twist, Lemon-Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon, Available Now: Lemon-Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon
Stamps: Good Tidings from the 2017 Holiday Catalog
Ink: Crumb Cake, Real Red, and Lemon-Lime Twist (Ink Pads & Stampin’ Write Markers)
Tools: Stampin’ Trimmer, Paper Snips, Clear Stamp Block E, Snail Adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals
After looking at this card, I probably could have added an additional cardstock color behind the 2nd layer to help make it pop a bit more. It was a quick and easy card, definitely duplicatable. I adhered the ribbon with Snail Adhesive to help hold it snugly in place and also pull it tight. That New Tutti-Frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins is so easy to work with and can be added to a card in a flash. Be ready to order yours January 3rd, 2018 when the 2018 Occasions Catalog goes live.

Welcome to the December Birthday’s Blog Hop! A bundle of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators have decided to collaborate and wish all the peeps with a December Birthday a Happy One! My son is one of them, celebrating on December 28th! He will be SIX! What? How can he possibly be 6-years old already? Time flies by way too fast!
I was having a hard time deciding what I was going to use for my birthday post. I have a few items in-hand from the 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs and wanted to use one of them so that I could share the awesome products to be released on January 3, 2018.
I was going to use Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set but then decided that I wanted to share a Bundle of Products instead. So I went with the super cute Bubble Over Bundle. The Bundle contains 17 Photopolymer Images with 19 Coordinating Framelits Dies, at $40.50, definitely a bang for your buck! It also has Coordinating DSP called Bubble & Fizz that can be earned for FREE with a $50 purchase. The framelits are even sized to cut out the DSP images. The benefits of Sale-A-Bration are coming! YAY!
I Love, Love, Love the all-new Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes. 176 adhesive-backed epoxy accents in teardrop and circle shapes, in a variety of sizes. I added three of the glitter circles in two different sizes to my card flagged sentiment.
I have been on a rosette kick lately so I decided to use a piece of the Bubbles & Fizz DSP to create a rosette. I cut it to 1 inch wide by 12 inches in length and scored it at every 1/4 inch. I adhered the two end pieces together and formed the rosette, using hot glue to keep it together. I also added some of the new Bermuda Bay Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon to the back side of the rosette so showcase more new products. Do you like it?

I wasn’t excited about the Green Sprigs from the Merry Little Christmas Suite, but I will say that I have fallen head-over-heels for them and have used up my entire stash (I even had to re-purpose to finish this project). Pair them up with the Mini Ornaments and the Jute Twine and you have the perfect combination for a rustic-feel creation. If you follow me, you know I am crazy about rustically themed crafts!
