Foiled Card - Shades of Black

Hello again. For my last card this week I have used the beautiful Butterfly Gala stamp set and punch.
I stamped 3 of the butterflies onto Silver Foiled card using Versamark ink.
Then poured Black embossing powder over and Heat set them. 
For information on the Butterfly Gala stamp set please click HERE
For more information on the Bundle, please click HERE


In addition to the Silver foiled card, I used Whisper White mat and a Smoky Slate card base.


Then, using Cardstock Vellum, I stamped 3 more in Stazon  ink and punched them out. Once curled, I fixed them using Sticky Dots to add dimension.

I stamped a message from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and punched it out using the Everyday Label Punch. Each layer was punched and punched down again on the sides to make it smaller until the last layer which was the proper size.

Another very easy and straightforward card to finish off the week.
Thank you for joining me these last 2 weeks. I hope you've found some inspiration.
 Please pop in next week as Cary will have some amazing projects to inspire you.

Foiled Card

Today's card was made using the other colour in the Saleabration FREE product.
This time, just a Happy Birthday message die-cut from the Lovely Lipstick foil
 using the Happy Birthday Thinlit.


I have used Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White card for this one as well as a piece
of DSP from the In Colour range of papers.
The pattern on one side is a random stripe and the other White spots.


I added a strip of Whisper White, Metallic edged ribbon just under 
the decorated Whisper White mat. I used Botanical Bliss stamp set for the floral decoration.


I stood all 4 edges of the white mat on the ink pad.

I finished by stamping the message and punched it out using a 1 1/4" circle punch
and a piece of the DSP which shows the reverse of the stripe
 punched out using the 1 1/2" circle punch.

Stampin' Up! Foiled card 

 For today's card I've used a piece of the FREE Foiled card in Grapefruit Grove.
It comes in 2 different colours, the other is Lovely Lipstick.
I love them both but the Grapefruit Grove has an iridescent look to it as you can see by my pictures.

I used Whisper White for the card base, then a piece of the Grapefruit Grove Foil and topped it off with a panel from the Beautifully Detailed Laser-cut Speciality Paper.
For more information about Saleabration Please click HERE

I added a small strip and a bow with the Silver Edged Whisper White Ribbon. 
To get any of the FREE products you need to spend £45 in the seasonal or annual catalogue.

The oval was die-cut using the Stitched Label Framelits. If you only have a punch, that would look
just as good too. Although I really do like the effect you get with the dies.

I completed the card with messages from Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

Hello and welcome back. 
My card today is a little more for the adventurous crafter. I have embossed and die cut.
The idea was cased from a swap that I received by Lesley Lendon. 
Thank you Lesley.

I have used Very Vanilla and Early Espresso cardstock and Early Espresso Ink Pad as well as the Copper Foil for the gears.
The Geared Up Garage stamp set and coordinating Thinlits is the collection that I used.
For more information on the bundle, please click HERE
For more information on just the stamp set, please click HERE   

The Early Espresso card was Embossed using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder TIEF
I think it gives it a lovely masculine feel to it.

I finished up by adding this lovely messsage.

#Simplestamping Day 3

 Hello. Today's card is of course a very simple stamping card.

I used the gorgeous Dandelion Wishes stamp set for this one.
I love the delicate wispiness of the seed heads. 
For more information, please follow the link HERE


Using So Saffron ink pad, I stamped the images and added a few more little extras
from the stamp set.

I used some Basic Rhinestones covered with Daffodil Delight Blends pen to highlight
them. I think it adds a little pop to the card.

A simple message on the front and inside finishes this one off.

#simplestamping this month from Stampin' Up! is all about LOVE!
 So here is another simply stamped card today as it will be all this week. 

I used the lovely stamp set, Love You To Pieces for this one.
A few simple pieces of puzzle.  
For more information please click HERE


I used Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White cardstock. The ink was 
Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick.

To coordinate this all together, I punched out half of the 1/2" Circle shapes to 
match the jigsaw.

The jigsaw pices were cut out by hand of course as most people who know me, 
know that I like to fussy cut anything.

A simple message and the little cutouts on the inside to finish this one off.
