Merriest Wishes Shaker Card

Isn't the Pine Bough Embossing Folder beautiful? It is such a nice embossed image.
I couldn't wait to get the Large Letters Framelits because I knew I wanted to make this card. Its funny, I didn't realize it until just now, the shaker is in Whisper White, while the card is in Very Vanilla.......I think when you make yours, you would want them in the same color......We made this card in my Holiday Card Class this month. As I went to cut all the paper for this card, I realized I didn't have enough of the Gold Foil Paper so I used Gold Glimmer Paper, but I didn't want to waste all the Glimmer Paper that is behind the first layer, so I die cut the letter first.


You can see my ornament from the Merriest Wishes stamp set is embossed with Gold Embossing Powder, then die cut with the matching Merry Tags Framelits, (get the bundle and save 10%). You have all the dies you need to make a shaker card in this set.

As I went to cut all the paper for this card, I realized I didn't have enough of the Gold Foil Paper (for class) so I used Gold Glimmer Paper, but I didn't want to waste all the Glimmer Paper that is behind the first layer, so I die cut the letters first. And then you can use that as the middle layer. You could also die cut or punch other things too. Still plenty of space, since only a little bit will be showing on the edges.


Cutting Guide:

5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Very Vanilla cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
4 1/2" x 5 3/8" Gold Foil or Glimmer Paper
4" x 5 1/4" Very Vanilla Embossed with the Pine Bough Embossing Folder

For the Shaker Ornament:
2- 2 1/4" x 2 1/2" Very Vanilla and 1-Window Sheet

Suite Seasons, In Everything Give Thanks

Isn't this sentiment awesome? I love it. I think we sometimes forgot to be thankful.....this was the second card we did at Carol's Tea Party on Saturday. I had some extras and used some other ribbon to change it up a bit.

We used the Leaflets Framelits for the leaves. I die cut a whole bunch of leaves in Early Espresso, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Delightful Dijon and let everyone pick which color leaves they wanted. They also could choose which ribbon they wanted, either the 5/8" Mini Stripped Ribbon or the Delightful Dijon 3/8" Ribbon Trio Pack.
 You can see we also used the Woodland Embossing Folder.
I have a tip for you.....when adhering the top of the Acorn to the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper, use Tombow Multi Liquid Glue. You need to hold it for a few seconds till its dry. That is the only glue that I've found to hold on the Glimmer Paper.
I decided when I was making up the extras that I had to add the Metallic Enamel Shapes to the leaves.
 This one is retired. I so loved this ribbon......Stampin' Up! please bring this back!
I also added some flecks of Gold Wink of Stella.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4" x 11" Delightful Dijon cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
4" x 5 1/4" Very Vanilla embossed with the Woodland Embossing Folder
1 1/4" x 3 1/2" Very Vanilla (for the sentiment)
Scraps of Delightful Dijon, Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive

Vampires, Witches, and Ghosts, OH MY!

This is one of the cards we did in my Holiday Card Class this month. I used two stamp sets, Jar of Haunts and Suite Sayings. The Everyday Jars Framelits also work perfect with this stamp set.

I'm really loving the Halloween Night Specialty Paper. And I love my little "mummy" with the googlie eyes. If your "mummy" feels a little too sterile.....use your Aqua Painter and the Basic Grey ink in the lid and add some shadows and dirty him up a bit. Instead of using Black, I used Basic Grey to stamp the mummy and greeting.
The greeting comes from Suite Seasons, isn't it fun? Adding just a little Black cardstock and Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper makes the whole card come together. The Halloween Night Baker's Twine finished the card. Seriously, I am loving all the new Baker's Twine in the Holiday Catalog. So much to choose from.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2" Thick Whisper White cardstock
3 3/4" x 5 1/2" Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper
1" X 5 1/2" Basic Black cardstock
1/2" x 5 1/2" Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper
Scrap of Whisper White for the mummy

Thoughtful Branches, Birthday Card/September's Paper Pumpkin Video


I gave this card to one of my BEST friends for her birthday this week. We have been friends for over 25 years. Hope you have a GREAT Birthday Lynne B.

The Thoughtful Branches Bundle (stamp set and matching Thinlits Dies) are still available. This time I thought I would try Vellum.

For the top layer, I inked up my Hardwood Background stamp in Watermelon Wonder and stamped onto Watermelon Wonder cardstock. Then I took the lacy stamp in Touches of Texture and stamped just the edges. Next I roughed up the edges (I used an old tool that Stampin' Up! used to sell), but you can use the blades of your scissors too. Using Pear Pizzazz cardstock I die cut the flourish from Flourish Thinlits Dies, adhered with Tombow Multi Glue.

Next I added snail to one of the Hydrangeas and added my Silver Metallic Thread, then attached just above the flourish. For the second flower I scrunched it up in my hand (very gently), added some pieces of Dimensionals and slightly offset from the bottom flower. I can here you all shrieking, scrunch up the vellum.....What? It really makes the flower more 3 dimensional, don't you think?

And finally, I added some of the lace Watermelon Wonder ribbon (sorry, its retired). Glued that piece onto a Watermelon Wonder card base. I did sneak in some Silver Sequin Trim into the ribbon.

I decided that the sentiment would have to go on the inside, so I first added a piece of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate with a piece of a Doily, then the Whisper White banner on top with the sentiment from the Tin of Cards stamp set.


I was inspired by a card that Billie Moan made. I have a hard time when it comes to layering stamped images like I did with the Hardwood Background and Lacey stamp, but I love how this turned out and will be doing it again. Thank you Billie!

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2" Watermelon Wonder cardstock
4" x 5 1/4" Watermelon Wonder cardstock
Scraps of Vellum, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White cardstock
