Three CASED Cards from the Catalog with Lights Aglow Suite

The Lights Aglow Suite has just about everything you need to make beautiful Chirstmas cards - two gorgeous bundles, ribbon, special papers and gems - yum!

Tonight I shared three cards with this suite that I CASED (Copy and share everywhere or something like that ha ha) from the catalog. These cards are on page 30 of the Mini Catalog (July-December). The third card has a bit of a twist at the end that might surprise you!

Lights aglow cards2

Aren't they pretty?

I really like the effect of using the Diorama Layering Dies to frame the tree on this card:

Lights aglow tree card2

Also, did you notice the gems on the tree? I used the Elegant Faceted Gems to finish decorating the tree.

The second card has a layer of embossed snowflakes behind the sentiment:

Lights aglow mint card2

The Real Red Mini Ruffled Ribbon adds just the right color accent. 

The third card is really a pocket card/gift card holder. Using kraft paper as the base with an attached belly band, you can slide the pocket in and out of it.  DSP is from the Celebrate Everything DSP pack, which is only available as a hostess item.

Snowflakes are die cut from the gold Glimmer Specialty Paper. The layers on the belly band add dimension and interest to the pocket card.

Fond of Autumn Cards and Tea Light Card

Send some cheer with these lovely cards featuring the Fond of Autumn Bundle. Fall flowers and foliage with sweet sentiments make this bundle a go-to for Fall cards.

I love the die that makes this detailed die cut featured on this card front:

Fond of autumn cajun card2

Then there's the die that cuts the large stamp into four small stamps.  I used one on the card above and two on the card below. These die cuts are from the same large image:

Fond of autumn garden green card 2

The large floral image is shown on the card below (yep, this is the image you can die cut into four pieces).

One Basic Fun Fold, Three Different Layouts with the Season of Chic Bundle

I want to share three different cards with you that are based on one fundamental fun fold. There are pictures for each of the cards and a PDF to download with all of the measurements. You can also watch my YouTube video for more details (link below).

One thing I love about the Season of Chic Bundle is that you can use it for all of the seasons.  The Texture Chic Specialty DSP also includes paper for all of the seasons. I'm showing a Fall, Christmas, and Summer card.

The basic fold is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" piece of card stock scored on the 8 1/2" side at 4 1/4" and 7"(pictured below).

Basic fun fold 2

For the first card, I am layering the front panels with Texture Chic Specialty DSP and also using one large piece to become the left side of the inside of the card. 

One fun fold pumpkin card 2

The inside looks like this:

One fun fold pumpkin card inside

The second card is a gift card or cocoa pouch holder. It is created similar to the first card, but horizontally and without the large piece of DSP. Again, find the links to the PDF and video tutorial below.

The third card uses the same base for a z-fold card:

Three Fall Flower Garden Cards

When we think of Fall, we think of pumpkins, gourds and squash, but there are beautiful Fall flowers too!

I created three lovely cards with that in mind that feature Echinacea, Ranunculus and Mums (or daisies) - all beautiful flowers that are glorious in Fall array.

Fall Flower Garden Cards2

Each card features something unique and different.

On the Ranunculas card I used the Water Color Pencils and then blended the colors together with the Blending Pen.

Measurements for this card:

Early Espresso Card Base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" and die cut with long Contour Scallop die on end (about 3/4" in).

Gingham Cottage DSP – 3 x 5 ½”; 1 ¾ x 5 ½”(inside)

Crumb Cake for Die Cut Scalloped Rectangle

Very Vanilla – 2 5/8 x 3 7/8 for front stamped piece; 2 ¼ x 5 ½” for inside sentiment piece.

Fall flower garden cards ranunculus2

The card below features a flower bouquet and foliage from the Harvest Dies with the Vintage Bottle Shaker Dome. I also die water colored the flowers with our Water Color Pencils and the Blending Pen.

Measurements for this card:

Basic Black Card Stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

Gingham Cottage DSP - 5 1/4 x 4"

Scrap piece of Very Vanilla for flowers

Scrap piece of Crumb Cake for grasses

Basic White 5 1/4 x 4" for inside sentiment

The third card is my favorite. I used the Daisy Garden stamp and Gold Embossing Powder to create this card along with the Distressed Gold Paper to make the pumpkin.

Measurements:

Thick Very Vanilla - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

Blackberry Bliss - 5 1/4 x 4"

September 2022 Sweet Notes Card Club

September is in the air! - Lingering summer warmth is fading with the cooler September mornings. A touch of color is starting to show in the canvas of the leaves in the trees along our hedgerow.

Cards with Apple Harvest Stamp Set and Layered Strips Card Base

This card recipe is a great way to use up left over strips of paper in a beautiful way! The strips are layered diagonally on the front of the card base which creates a back drop of color and interest. Other layers include vellum, a Basic White circle and the beautiful stamped image from Apple Harvest Stamp Set. I love a card with lots of layers!

As you can see, there are two cards.  One is a little more stepped up (the one on the left). I'm not sure which one I like better. How about you?

Here is the simpler card:

Isn't it pretty? I love how the black embossed sentiment compliments the other colors.

Here is the other card. Extras include white embossed flowers and the Mini Ruffled Ribbon.

Let's celebrate early Fall with this cute Dutch Door Card featuring the Nuts about Squirrels Stamp Set.  It's so darn cute and so are they - unless they are in your attic of course.

I like this particular Dutch Door fold which I got in a swap years ago from Beth Erbelding. Her card featured a different stamp set and DSP.

Here's what it looks like with one side open:

Shaker Card with Hello Harvest Bundle and Splendid Day DSP

Make these shaker cards for something a little extra special to have on hand to give to friends and family.  The Splendid Day Specialty DSP is so bright and pretty with it's brilliant foils which adds an extra touch. These cards are not in traditional Fall colors which makes them even more eye-catching.

Shaker cards with rustic pumpkin dies2

The pumpkin image in each of these cards is stamped on vellum card stock. I used the For Everything Sequins in each of these shaker cards.

The Sea Foam card is my favorite:

Shaker card sea foam rustic pumpkin dies

The pumpkin is stamped in Pear Pizzaz and then colored in on the back of the vellum with Mint Macaron.

How about a totally non-tradition color - a pink pumpkin! The pumpkin below was stamped in Polished Pink on Vellum and colored in with Polished Pink Blends on the bakc of the vellum.

Shaker card polished pink rustic pumpkin dies2

And the last card is done in gold.  I stamped the pumpkin image in Versamark ink and then added gold embossing powder, heating until the powder is melted and a shiny gold color. The flower spray was also embossed with gold embossing powder.

How to Create an Ombre Look with Silver & Gold Designer Series Paper

The Silver & Gold DSP pack is one of the free items in the Salabration catalog (page 10). It is a hidden gem because you can do so much with it! In today's episode of Farm Fresh cards I showed how to use blending  brushes on it to create your own "ombre" effect.  It's sooo pretty!

Here's the card I made today:

Sending Butterflies pink2

Isn't that pretty?  The Silver & Gold DSP is on the envelope flat and also the top layer behind the butterflies.  The colors on the piece on this card are Polished Pink, Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana.  The gems on the butterflies are from the Fine Sparkle Adhesive Backed Gems in the July-Dec. Mini Catalog and they go so nicely with this card. I also used the Sending Smiles Bundle and the Brilliant Wings Dies from the Annual Catalog.

Below this card is pictured with a card I did using the gold DSP:

Sending butterflies both2

Measurments for this card:

4 1/4 x 11" Card stock for base scored at 5 1/2"

Basic Black Layer - 3 1/4 x 5 1/2"

Gold and Silver DSP - 3 x 5 1/2"

Basic White for inside sentiment piece: 5 1/4 x 4"
