Be Merry!

This card is quite simple thanks to the Most Wonderful Time kit. I started with a Whisper White card base. I cut a piece of DSP (designer series paper) from the Most Wonderful Time refill kit (151270) 5 ¼ x 4. I cut a piece of the striped DSP 2 x 4 & glued them together with glue of your choice. I die cut a piece of Whisper White CS using the Stitched Shapes die (152323) & adhered it to the card using dimensionals to get it a little pop. The candy canes are stickers in the kit. I used a glue dot to adhere the bow; retired red glitter twine. The sentiment is from the Banner Year (153464) stamp set using Old Olive ink stamped onto another sticker from the kit & stuck it on the card. Easy peasy!

Moose Peace on Earth

Hi, I’m Jill & have a Pinterest problem 🙂 CASEd this one from Pinterest, shock I know.
I started with Crumb Cake as the card base. I layered with Cheery Cobbler cut 5 ¼ x 4. For the Whisper White layer, I stamped a background using Crumb Cake ink. The Sentiments are from the Peace & Joy stamp set (153430).

For the highlight center of the card, I die cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler using the Stitched Shapes dies (152323) as the base layer. I ran a piece of Whisper White through the embossing machine using the Woodland EF (152881) then die cut using Layering Circles dies (151770), then adhered using glue of choice. For the moose, I stamped it Crumb Cake ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Then I did stamped the outline detailed stamp using Soft Suede ink. Once the stamping was done, I punched the moose out using the Moose Punch (150652). The scarf was ink in Cherry Cobbler & stamped onto Whisper White, then fussy cut out & adhered using glue of choice. The moose was adhered to the circles using dimensionals.

Note- Merry Moose stamp set, Moose punch & Peace & Joy stamp set are all on the retiring list 😦

Teacher Gifts

For teacher gifts this year, I decided to make a stack of cards along with some other goodies. This card was CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) from Rhonda Wade. The stamp set Ridiculously Awesome (152512) is the stamp set Rhonda designed for her $1,000,000 sales.

I started with a Basic Grey cardstock. I layered it with Whisper White that was die cut using the Stitched Rectangles dies (151820). The next layer is from the Peony Garden DSP (152483) cut 4 ¾ x 3 ½. I stamped the sentiment in Smokey Slate onto Whisper White cardstock then die cut it using the Stitched Shapes (152323). I wrapped a piece of Shimmer Ribbon (152463) around the layered white & Peony DSP & tied it with a simple knot. Then I popped it up with dimensionals. I popped the circle sentiment up with dimensionals as well. The coloured vellum is retired but is currently on the clearance rack (149101 for $4.40) that I punched with the retired Leaf punch. I added a subtle bling by using the Wink of Stella on the FAITH letters. For a little extra something, I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems (152464).

Gnome For The Holidays

I started with Basic Grey cardstock. I layered it with Whisper White cut 2 x 4, Whisper White cut 3 ¼ x 4 embossed using a retired Decorative Dots EF (133520) & Basic Grey cut ½ x 4 to hide the seam of the 2 Whisper White layers. I layered a 3 x 3 Plaid Tidings DSP popping it up with dimensionals. The circles were die cut using Merry Merlot roughly 2 ⅝ circle & Basic Grey die cut using Stitched Shapes (145372). The circles were adhered using Tombow liquid glue. The gnome was inked in Memento black ink & coloured using Stampin’ Blends. I “fussy cut” the gnome & popped him up on dimensionals. On his beard, I used Wink of Stella (141897) to give it a subtle bling. For the final touches, I added a few Basic Pearls (144219). The sentiment is from the Banner Year stamp set (153464 stamped in Basic Grey.

Gnome For The Holidays

I started with Basic Grey cardstock. Layered it with Whisper White cardstock 5 ¼ x 4 embossed in a retired Decorative Dots EF (133520). I layered on top of the white with a piece of Plaid Tidings DSP (153527) cut 2 ½ x 4. To the bottom of the plaid, I layered Basic Grey ½ x 4 stamped with the sentiment from Banner Year (153464) in Basic Grey. The circles were die cut using Merry Merlot roughly 2 ⅝ circle die & Basic Grey die cut using Stitched Shapes (145372). The gnome is from Gnome for the Holidays (153322) was inked in Memento black & stamped onto Whisper White cardstock & coloured with Stampin’ Blends.
