Sale -a-bration. ~ You’re Lovely stamp set

A card made for an acquaintance who was recently diagnosed.

imageThe base card is Stampin’ Up’s Blushing Bride card, dry embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder then topped with a Tea Time paper doily.

The ‘You’re Lovely stamp set was used for the center embellishment layered on to Sahara Sand card both of which were cut with the Deco Labels Framelits.  Basic Gray ink was used then Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz ink and a blender pen used to water color the flowers.

This was adhered using stampin dimensionals with a twist of 1\4 stitched Blushing Bride grosgrain ribbon and a gentle sprinkling of pearls to finish off. Hopefully it conveys encouragement for her upcoming treatment.

Blueberry Pie ~ party favors

I always think blue, silver and white as New Year colors ~ not exclusively though, as I also have a Christmas tree decorated with ornaments in those colors.

I wanted to make some party favours for New Year and decided to use an idea of Connie Stewart’s from Simply Simple Stamping to make them in the shape of a slice of pie,and since I was using different shades of blue I have dubbed it ‘blueberry pie’  Continue reading

Punch Art 3 ~ Graduation Owl

The third in my series of punch art embellishments is the graduation owl.

We start with the Owl Punch and some Crumb Cake card stock to make the body then Whisper White and Basic Black to make his eyes.  The large flower in the Boho Blossom punch was used to cut Crumb Cake ‘wings’ which was then cut in half.  Soft Suede ink was sponged onto the body and wings.

The medium flower from the Boho Blossom blossom punch was used to cut the ‘beak’ in Tangarine Tango card stock then trimmed to a single petal which was attached behind the eyes with a glue dot.

graduation owl

The cap was made by using the oval punch to cut Basic Black then cut in half.  Then shaped with 1/2 inch circle punch from the Itty Bitty punch pack.  The top of the cap started as a 1″ square then trimmed to make the diamond shape before attaching to the base with a stampin dimensional. The tassle was made with Cherry Cobbler bakers twine, then a white gel pen to make the little ‘twinkle’ in his eye.

He was then was used as an embellishment on the scrapbook page.
