Ornament Keepsakes Card

This is a card that I made for a Christmas card swap.
I have lots of beautiful cards to share with you so be watching over the next few days for those.

For this card I used the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and matching Holiday Ornaments framelits dies.  I stamped the ornament with Versa Mark on Whisper White card stock and embossed with Silver embossing powder, then cut out with the framelit.  The ornament is on embossed (Lacy Brocade folder) and sanded Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations card stock then layered with Silver Glimmer paper.
Other supplies used:
Petite Pairs stamp set
Bitty Banners framelits
Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon
Rhinestone Basic Jewels
Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White card stock
Stampin' Dimensionals and Glue Dots

Fall Class Projects

I just wanted to share the projects that we made in class last night.
This card featured the emboss resist technique using the Tweet Leaves stamp and the coordinating leaf from the Autumn Accents die.
For the stampin on this card we used ink refills and baby wipes to create a custom "stamp pad".
Ink refills used: Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade, and Pumpkin Pie.
Stamp set: Gently Falling

 This is a simple party favor treat holder using a piece of card stock 9" x 4-1/4", score at 3/4" and 4-1/2".  Using the Word Window punch create an opening for the treat. Apply adhesive to the 3/4" flap, fold in half at the 4-1/2" score.  Decorate the front and insert candy.
Supplies used:  Comfort Cafe dsp, Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke card stock, Autumn Accents die, Itty Bitty Banners and Bitty Banners framelits.
Isn't this box cute?
I love the canning jar window.
This box features the Orchard Harvest dsp, Cannery Set framelits, Perfectly Preserved stamp set, Window Sheets, Stazon ink, Scallop Square bigz die, Square Lattice embossing folder.

Autumn Accents Fall Leaves

I have been having fun making leaves using the Autumn Accents Bigz die to cut out the maple leaf shape.  I found a great tutorial on how to make these HERE .
I used More Mustard card stock for the leaves and sponged on classic ink in More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red, and Early Espresso.
Spritzed the leaves with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.

 I used a couple of my leaves on this simple card.
The card base is Naturals Ivory card stock and the sentiment is from the stamp set Perfectly Penned.
