This is a bit of a different way to use Forever Young. I’ve also used the stamp sets Curly Cute and Pocket Silhouettes. And you can see Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and the 2010-2012 In Color Patterns DSP Stack plus a touch of Chantilly lace ribbon.
I’ve used two different techniques for this card: embossing and marker to rubber.
This is a close up of the embossing. This time I stamped the clock in Early Espresso ink, then versamark ink and then onto the Subtles Collection Patterns DSP Pack when I heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
This is a close up of the marker to rubber, using the Pear Pizzazz marker and Blushing Bride marker pens.
The colour combo is Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride.
Here is another Forever Young card. I borrowed the stamp set from a friend, Christie Wallace (you can check out Christie’s amazing creations here), and had a play with it – lucky me!
This card also uses the embossing technique. I stamped in versamark and then heated black embossing powder over the image. The colours I’ve used are Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Gray and the Neutrals Collection of the Patterns DSP Stack.
The sentiment is stamped from the stamp set Curly Cute which fits perfectly in the Extra-Large Oval Punch and is layered with the Decorative Label punch. There is a touch of SU Basic Black satin ribbon and, of course, a gorgeous Vintage brad to finish the card off.
This is a card I made for a friend’s daughter’s 2nd birthday, earlier this year.
I’m a tad attached to this colour combo this year – Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla. A definite favourite for me! Although for this card, I also added a touch of Pear Pizzazz – not sure that really works 😦
I used the stamp sets Easter Blossoms and Curly Cute, which are so sweet together. There was a lot of sponging edges, as you can see, and I also sponged quite a bit with Champagne Shimmer, although you can’t see the shimmer too well in my photos.
Here is another Box in a Bag (did I say how inspired I was by Rachel’s pressie, lol?!). This one I made for one of my hostesses as her thank you gift. If you would like to make your own Box in a Bag, then click here to see the tutorial.
For this box, I used Love Letter Designer Series Paper and Very Vanilla and Basic Black textured cardstock. For the tag, I first rolled in Crumb Cake the Music Notes wheel. Then I stamped the thank you sentiment from Curly Cute in Riding Hood Red. I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake and popped a Vintage Brad at the top of the tag.
I tied the box together with two punched Round Tab pieces of Basic Black, a hole punched in both with my Crop-a-dile, and then threaded with Basic Black satin ribbon and Chantilly Crochet Trim lace. And that was it! So easy.
I really love the Curly Cute “Season’s Greetting” stamp, so I’ve made quite a few cards with it this year. For the card above, I punched out some Cocoa Specialty DSP (not available anymore) using the Ornament Punch. I wrapped some gold cord (retired) around the top and then stuck it to some Whisper White paper that I had embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and my Big Shot. The sentiment was stamped in Real Red.
This card is slightly different. It has three ornaments and the sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede ink.
This card is the same as the first card, except the sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede ink.
