Elegant CASEd Card with Winter Woods & the Stamparatus

Today we are using some “Pinspiration” for this gorgeous and elegant CASE’d card using the Winter Woods Bundle. I know, I know… maybe you are getting a little tired of seeing the Winter Woods Bundle in action, but I can’t help it! It’s such a fun set to play with! And this elegant card was CASE’d from a card by Mary Fish of Stampin’ Pretty. Her card was so gorgeous I had to recreate one of my own!

I used Smoky Slate for the card mat, and Gray Granite for the stamped images. Silver Foil accented the sprigs behind the Stitched Shapes Framelit and a bit of Linen Thread tied it together well. The vellum makes a beautiful, soft accent to really enhance the elegant qualities of the card.

You know how much I like my bling, so I decided to add a few Rhinestones to the sentiment. All in all, this card turned out well and was so much fun to put together! I used this card in my Winter Woods Bundle class that I held a few weekends ago. It was a huge success, and everyone loved the background featuring the amazing Stamparatus! See it in action in my video below!

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Scored @ 4-1/4″

Birthday Card with Rooted in Nature

Welcome back Kre8tors! I recently found myself needing a birthday card for my grandmother and knew right away I was going to choose Rooted in Nature. This set definitely embodies her spirit with the trees and leaves. Green is a color she’s always been drawn to, so I knew I had to use Shaded Spruce.

I had so much fun CASE’ing this card from Angelique over at Stempelkeuken. She did a lovely job, and when I saw this card I knew it had to be a birthday card for my grandmother! Check out the video tutorial I posted below to see how it all came together!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Scored @ 4-1/4″
Shaded Spruce Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Vellum: 1″ x 5-1/4″ + Scrap for Leaf Punch
Whisper White Scraps: Approximately 4″ x 5″

Passion for Punches ICS Blog Hop

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back to another fun project! Today we are hopping with the ICS Blog Hop, a group of Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the globe. This month’s theme is Passion for Punches, so I decided to make a beautiful Fall Wreath card using the Leaf Punch that coordinates with the stamp set, Painted Harvest.

I have been ready for fall since Spring started! I am definitely a Fall baby, and love everything about the season. I’m so excited for the smell of the Bath & Body Works candle, Leaves. I’m excited for Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING! I’m excited about the cool days when the sun is still shining, otherwise known as sweater weather. So, to reflect my amazing mood right now, I wanted to share some bright, vibrant Fall colors on this gorgeous Fall Wreath card.

The sentiment I used was from Rooted in Nature and I love every, little, thing about this set! First of all, it comes in a BUNDLE with the stamp set AND the framelits, so you can save 10%!!! Second, this stamp set has not one, but TWO cases full of beautiful, nature inspired stamps. I really love it when a stamp set has both beautiful images as well as coordinating sentiments and sayings.

I also am so in love with a stamp set that coordinates beautifully with OTHER sets! Rooted in Nature pairs really well with Painted Harvest, the set I used when creating the focal point of my card. Combining old classics with new favorites is a huge benefit! If you want to see how I put this beautiful wreath together using the “paper gasket” method, click on the video link below!
