Gorgeous Grunge Fall Thanks with Glitter!!

Had fun using the NEW Silver & Gold Stampin' Glitter on this one.  I started with the Label Card Thinlits Die and some Baked Brown Sugar card stock.  Added some fun accents with the versatile stamp set called Gorgeous Grunge.  The leaf is from the Wonderfall stamp set and I stamped the image on a die cut from the coordinating Autumn Accents Bigz Die which just happens to be on sale for 25% off through today!!

Thinlitsgrungeglitter

ThinlitsgrungeglittercloseI used my 2-Way Glue Pen to add lines of glue to the leaf and then added the gold glitter.  Super sparkly in real life.  The little banner is an element included with the Label Card Thinlit Die set and makes a fun 3-D accent on the filp panel.  Here are the other elements.

Christmas Collectibles Folded Paper Frame

How fun is this card. It uses a technique called Folded Paper Frame and we learned it at my September Technique Geeks Class. My next class is Saturday, October 26th at 2:00, let me now if you would like to join us.

Christmascollectibleswindow

The card uses the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack, Silver 1/8" Ribbon, Silver Foil Sheets and the Christmas Collectibles Bundle.  All these items can be found in the Holiday Catalog.

We have a number of bundled products in our catalogs and you save 15% when you order them.

BundlespicTo create the paper frame, you cut a square,in this case, I used a 4x4.  Fold the corners to the middle creating a smaller square and then fold the corners out again to make a frame.  I stamped my ornament in Island Indigo, punched it out and mounted it to a 1 3/4 Circle cut from Pool Party.  These were both mounted to a 2-3/4 x 2-3/4 piece of our Silver Foil Sheets, looks so cool in real life.

Season of Style Washi Tape and Designer Journaling Tags #3

Wednesday & Thursday, I showed you eight of the twelve cards I made while riding on the field trip bus with my son's class.  Today I have the third set.  I used the Season of Style Washi Tape, Season of Style Designer Journaling Tags along with twelve 5"x3-1/2" folded Crumb Cake cards and the NEW Crumb Cake Note Card Envelopes.

Seasonofstyletagcardsgroup2

You probably noticed that there are only three cards in this set and I said I made twelve.  I did make twelve, only the twelfth card somehow didn't make it home with me and must still be on the bus!! 

I layered the tags on these cards.  I measured them and added 1/4" to that measurement to create the mat.  I also added some Crumb Cake Seam Binding to the card on the bottom.

Season of Style Washi Tape and Designer Journaling Tags

I went on a field trip with my son's class and needed something to do for the long bus ride to and from our destination. I quickly grabbed my Season of Style Washi Tape, Season of Style Designer Journaling Tags along with twelve 5"x3-1/2" folded Crumb Cake cards and the NEW Crumb Cake Note Card Envelopes.

Seasonofstyletagcardsgroup3

It was easy to add the Washi Tape to the front of the cards while in the bus and then I added one of the Journaling Tags to the front with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I stamped any greetings I needed and added the stars punched from some Champagne Glimmer Paper when I got home.

Hello! Timeless Talk Flip Card

SeasonofstyledspstackHow fun is this card!  I paired the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack with the Timeless Talk stamp set to come up with this retro filp card.  This stack of papers has 48 sheets, 24 of each double sided design and they are certainly not just for Christmas.

 

 

Timelesstalkthinlit

Of course. the Circle Card Thinlits Die set does all the cutting and folding for me.

I used our new Rotary Attachment and Small Scallop Blade for the Stampin' Trimmer to create this fun border on the Bermuda Bay strip.

Timelesstalkthinlit1closeI stamped the phone image in Bermuda Bay,  punched it out with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch, stamped the image again in Crumb Cake ink, punched out the dial with the 3/4" Circle Punch and popped it up on the main phone image with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I lined my Medium Crumb Cake Envelope with one of the patterns in the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.  I creatd the liners with our new Envelope Liners Framelits Die set from the Holiday Catalog.

This was one of the cards that my club members made in September.

More Color Blocking with the Expressions Thinlits

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a card from one of my Technique Geek Classes (click HERE to learn more). You can view that card HERE.

Today's card was created in the process of making samples for that class. I think it is just so cool!  There is no stamping on this card, I used the Big Shot, Big Shot Dies and my Stampin' Trimmer with the Rotary Attachment.

Expressionsthinlitsmultilove

I started by taping various widths of card stock together and trimming the set to my desired size.  I used the "love" expression thinlit, from the Expressions Thilints set shown on page 36 of the Holiday Catalog, and ran it through the Big Shot with a strip of waxed paper so the die would release the greeting easily.  I ran the same greeting through again with Whisper White.  I placed the Whisper White "love" in the negative space so it would really pop.

I also cut a heart out of my strip piece and then cut another heart out of Strawberry Slush card stock.  The Strawberry heart was popped up in the negative space with a Stampin' Dimensional and I added a So Saffron Candy Dot for more interest.

The bottom edge of the card was trimmed with the Rotary Attachment for the Stampin' Trimmer using the Small Scallop Blade.  I added a skinny strip of Coatsal Cabana to the inside of the card so the color would show when the card is closed.

Supplies:
Paper: Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron, Whisper White, Naturals White
Accessories: Big Shot Machine #113439, Expressions Thinlits Dies #132171, Hearts a Flutter Framelits #130159, Stampin' Timmer #126889, Rotary Addition #129407, Small Scallop Rotary Cutting Blade #129410, Subtles Candy Dots #130933

Expressions Thinlits Dies and Color Blocking

Have you seen the Expressions Thinlits Dies in the Holiday Catalog?  They are soooo cool.  I posted THIS CARD from my Be a Big Shot at Home Class last week showing you the "thankful" greeting included with the set and now I am showing you the "love" greeting.

Expressionsthinlitsgreenlove

Last week I held my monthly Technique Geek Class and we learned how to Color Block with Card Stock.  I created this scrap strip piece (Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Pool party and Pistachio Pudding) and then ran it through the Big Shot with the "love" Thinlit. I removed the word and attached the rest to my card, easy peasy!!

Expressionsthinlits

Two more fun details on this card are the Pretty Print Textured background and the fun tiny scallop edge.  I used the Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing folder on the Naturals White background to add some texture and interest and I used the Small Scallop Stampin Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade on the edge of the card.
