Medallion Birthday

Hello my dear Stampers!  Once again I must ask you to forgive me for missing a couple posts. I am having the WORST luck with my computer.  The keyboard had quit functioning once again. My husband was in the process of following the Costco Concierge on how to fix it and while it was doing it’s thing the manager he was speaking to had to leave since they were being evacuated in Ft. Meyers, FL. Until they return my computer is now totally dead. I decided I’d best try using my notebook so here goes.

Today’s card is simple and elegant and can be used for either male or female. I’m really loving Washi Tape and this card makes it happen.

See what I mean! I’m still using the retired Gold Glitter Washi Tape from last year (I bought a ton of it since I loved it so much!) I used the Eastern Medallions Thinlits – two together to get this design and the Washi Tape! That’s all! How easy is that! I decorated the envelope with one of the designs in the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set.

 

 

Just a simple Happy Birthday from the stamp set Rose Wonder and a bit more Washi and there you have it!

 

We did this card in my August class and the participants liked this design because it is so versatile. 

If this works then I’ll be ready for my Friday post! Until then…Happy Stamping!    Donna

Eastern Beauty Tri-fold

Hello Stampers!

Today I have a very cool tri-fold card in Berry Burst using one of my favorite sets…Eastern Beauty.

I have really liked this bundle since it’s early release. Berry Burst is such an elegant color for me. The Garden Trellis Embossing Folder is so versatile! I think you’ll be seeing it a lot on my cards.  Those little sparkles of gold are Metallic Enamel Shapes.

Here’s the card closed…you can see that the medallion is keeping the left flap closed.

Here I’ve pulled the front panel out from the medallion and it is starting to open the card.

This photo shows the card fully opened. Of course I had to use the Happy Birthday Thinlit (another winner in my book!).

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

The photos just don’t do justice to this card. I’m so pleased with the way it turned out. Hope you like it too!

Congrats in Gold

Hello Stampers! Sometimes we see a card someone has made and you just want to make it too. We call this CASE (Copy And Share Everything).  My upline, Mary Fish, made this and I just love the simplicity so I had to copy it. We actually made this in one of my classes because it is just so elegant and subtle.

This card was made with Very Vanilla, Gold Foil, doily, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and Layering Circles Framelits.  I’m thinking I might use the Vanilla side of the doily and maybe do some sponging with Crumb Cake to make it stand out more. Mary used sequins but since I no more gold sequins left I just used a hole punch to make my little gold dots. Notice the second layer of Very Vanilla is popped up.

I’m also thinking a gold doily or one from our new die set Eastern Medallions. Check it out.

This time I changed the orientation of the card, put the circle punch out in the middle and used the Eastern Medallions Thinlits for the center. I actually used three dies together. 

I really like this simple and clean card.  It’s so great to start with one idea and then let the creative juices go.

Until my next post…try this one out and Happy Stamping!
