Wonderfully Wicked for GDP202

This Wicked die and coordinating stamp set is a sneak peek from the Stampin’ Up! holiday catty. It was on my wish list from the start.

Using the Global Design Project sketch #202 as my inspiration I created this fun halloween card.

I used (retired) halloween DSP and (retired) spider web dollies for my card. The spider and sentiments are from the coordinating stamp set Wonderfully Wicked. You can save 10% when you purchase the Wonderfully Wicked Bunde.

The word die was cut from Rich Razzleberry card stock backed with Stick-it adhesive sheets. I cut the word twice; first with the card stock facing up on the die and the second time with the adhesive sheet side facing up. After taking the adhesive off the word die that was sticky side up I covered it with (retired) Black Stampin’ Glitter. It looks so cool with the subtle purple coming through the black shimmer.  The photo does not do it justice. Then I layered the glittery word to the first cut of Rich Razzleberry card stock. Stacking the word dies gives the word more dimension on your card. 

The sentiments were stamped after the word was added to the card front. The Stamparatus made placement perfect and allowed me to stamp it twice for crisp lettering on the DSP.

All on Black TGIFC225

I was intrigued by the TGIF Challenge this week – All on Black. I love the use of black in fashion, interior design and of course crafting projects. So I took on the challenge.

I used SU Petal Pink card stock and retired Petals & More Thinlits to create a trellis on SU Basic Black card stock.  This was layered on a brushed rose gold foil from Tonic Studios. 

Then using the Spellbinders Glimmer Foil System and Elegant Occasion Sentiments with Rose Gold Foil I added the sentiment. 

A few Pink Rhinestones from my stash and the card is complete.

Country Home Hello

We are in the dog days of summer here in SWFL. The humidity is stifling and we are counting down the weeks until we begin to feel some hints of cool air. So it seemed fitting to pull out a fall inspired stamp set.

I love the Woven Threads Trim. It adds fun soft texture to the project without getting too frilly.

Here is a close up of the focal point. I had colored the berries in yellow then added the Gold Metallic Pearls over them. I really like the result. The Linen Thread ties in the Woven Threads Trim nicely.

I hope you are having a great week!


Magnolia Wreath for GDP #201 Color Challenge

This week’s Global Design Project is hosting a Color Challenge with the rich jewel tone colors of Mossy Meadow, Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock. 

I am eagerly awaiting my Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog pre-order due to arrive tomorrow. So I dug into this Concord & 9th Magnolia Wreath Bundle for the challenge.

I used retired Wood Textures DSP for the backdrop; I would love to see this DSP return. The wreath is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink. This unique set includes dies for extra magnolia leaves to add layers and depth. You can see that in the photo below.

There are “evergreen” sprigs of Pretty Peacock card stock and berries in Merry Merlot. The ribbon is retired SU ribbon from last year’s holiday catty.

I don’t usually create holiday cards this early however the GDP #201 color challenge seemed to call for something Fall or Holiday centric.

I hope you are having a great weekend and enjoying some creative time.
