Flourishes

SwirlCards_small

Good morning! Today I have a quick card using the Flowering Flourishes stamp set. I’ll be making a gift set with this design for the upcoming Gifts Class I am hosting on December 4. These cards are quick and pretty. Add a little bling to the flower centers and there you go! The color combos are Cucumber Crush/Mint Macaron and Cherry Cobbler/Blushing Bride. I really like the Cherry Cobbler/Blushing Bride color combination. Which one do your prefer?

Pine Bough Wreath

Good morning!  Today I am sharing a card that we made at the second Christmas Stamp-A-Stack class on Friday night.  Making wreaths with stamps is fun and easy!  This wreath is made using the pine branches and pine cones in the Berry Merry stamp set from the Holiday catalog and was inspired by Dena Rekow and Oksana Semenski.

BerryWreath_small  I  created a template from the card board found in the Designer Series Paper packaging the same size as my front panel.  Then I punched a 2 1/2″ circle in the template.  When you line up your card stock underneath the template, simply take a pencil and lightly trace the circle.  Now you have the base for your wreath!  Just stamp the pine branches using the circle as your guide.  Pretty easy!  The large pine branch is stamped with Pear Pizzazz while the smaller branch is stamped with Garden Green ink.  The pine cones are added last and they are stamped in Soft Suede.  The flower is punched from Cherry Cobbler scraps with the Petite Petal punch.  Layer one on top of the over, offsetting the petals just a bit.  Finally, add an Iced  Rhinestone to the center and your wreath is complete.  The sentiment is from Six Sayings hostess set found in the Holiday catalog.  Hope you like it!

Pretty Poinsettia

Good morning!  Today I am sharing a card I made for Friday’s last Christmas Stamp-A-Stack.  This card uses the Reason for the Season stamp set.  I love poinsettias – and creating them with this set is so easy to do.  Have you started on your Christmas cards yet?
