Last minute cards in time for Christmas


Do you still need to do a set of Christmas cards….this simple, yet elegant Christmas card can probably be done in a day!

It is one of our 2015 Christmas Card kits….Peace Angel.

Besides assembly, you will need to die cut the Angels (2 different Angels per set, so you can die cut all 25 with 13 passes thru your die cut machine) and the word Peace.   There is enough Antique Gold Metallic cardstock in the kit to do all of your die cutting.

In the kit, you receive the pre-scored A-2 card, pre-die cut Scallop Ovals and pre-embossed strips of Poison Ivory…it can’t get any easier than this!

Paper Used:     Peace Angel Complete Card Kit (or the pieces below)

Other items needed:   Die Cutting Machine and adhesive

Dies Used:  Impression Obsession

Don’t be blinded by the BLING!!!

Yesterday was my triplet nieces birthdays.
And not just any birthday…
it was their GOLDEN Birthday!!
Happy Birthday 10th Birthday Tori, Kate and Erin!!!




I couldn’t do a Golden Birthday any other way…than bright and blingy!!!
On all 2 cards, I used Gold Mirricard and Antique Stardream Metallic Cardstock.

The card bases are our pre-cut Swinging Z Fold Cards:
Cream Triple FLAG Swinging Z Fold Card
Cream CUPCAKE Swinging Z Fold Card
Cream Triple SCALLOP SQUARE Swinging Z Fold Card

The Gold Mirricard embossing GREAT!!!! I love it!
Similar to when I embossed the Silver with snowflakes back in early November- it looks amazing!
And the Stardream Metallic emboss great too!

I didn’t do alot of stamping on these cards – mostly words.
All of the cards have embossing – I think they were Sizzix Embossing folders (or Cuttlebug)
and ALL of the dies used were from Impression Obseesion – I will list below, along with the stamps.

Stamps & Dies Used:
Cupcake – Impression Obsession Clear Set
Words on the Triple Scallop Squares – Endless Creations & Everyday Cards
Words on Triple Flag – Endless Creations & Everyday Cards

Impression Obsession Dies:
Flag Die Set
Mini Square Tag Die Set
Cupcake Die Set
Cake Die Set

Elegant Tree

I love the tone on tone and then with the Gold Mirricard die cut tree…it is just a touch of elegance.

And NO STAMPING involved!

We had this card at some of our year end retail shows and many people asked if the Gold Mirricard “Merry Tree” was a sticker.
Actually its not – it is a die from Impression Obsession and then die cut using our Gold Mirricard.
I used a 3M Dot roller to attach the die cut to the front of the card.
Its hard to tell from the picture, but the card is a cream metallic (Hera Stardream) and then the top layer is a slight off white metallic (Pegasus Stardream).

Papers Used:
Hera Stardream Metallic A-2 Scored Card
Gold Mirricard (layer and die cut “Merry Tree”
Pegasus Stardream Metallic Layer

Die Used:
Impression Obsession Merry Tree Die

So Simple…yet pretty!

I’m trying to think “Spring”….with the flowers and the “Spring” cardstock!
The layer on the front of this card is one of the Embossed Metallic Constellation Jade cardstocks – Spring. It is a one-sided cardstock, so the pattern is only on one side. In this sheet the pattern is a smaller swirly pattern, slightly embossed into the shimmery sheet.
I embossed this using an embossing folder from Sizzix, then used a q-tip and chalks to add just a slight amount of color to the flowers. The Nestabilities shape with the words, was also die cut using a swatch of Spring and then stamped with a Timber Brown Staz-On Ink Pad. Before stamping, I applied chalk to it, so it wasn’t stark white.
This is layered on Echo Stardream Metallic and then on a Cognac Curious Metallic Scored A-2 Card.

I’ve had enough of this CRAZY winter, so everyone….please…think “SPRING”!

Love This Technique!

Embossed - Raster & Wedding
This elegant wedding card was made using Raster AstroSilver Cardstock. It is pearly white in color, but then I used a brayer and embossing folder to color it. I brayered Brillance Beige Ink on the side of the embossing folder that EMBOSSES down into the background. Then laid my paper, the “pretty side” down, on the ink and embossed it with my Big Shot. Wah lah…even prettier paper!!!
Then I stamped the dress and words (both from Impression Obsession) on swatches of Raster using a Momentos Ink Pad. Cognac Curious Metallic Cardstock is used to layer. Final touch is to add glitter on the dress to add a touch of sparkle!

The perfect present!

This cardstock, LASER, with the lines in it, is elegant looking without doing anything to it, but then die cut and emboss it and it looks amazing!! The base card is laser and then the present is also Laser Cardstock, which was die cut and embossed using an Impression Obsession Die. The outline to the present was cut out of our Holographic Cardstock, using the same die and a Large Bow die
The present is set off of the card with a strip of Noir Cardstock.
The words – Happy Birthday are from an Impression Obsession Clear Set – are stamped with Black Staz On Ink on the LASER A-2 Scored Card.

Awesome AstroSilver Stocks!!

This week is going to be all about AstroSilver Cardstocks. They are a line of pearly white metallic “embossed” or patterned cardstocks.
In this sample, we used the “Butterflies Cardstock” and colored it with direct to paper technique using dye based Ink Pads. The die cut Butterfly from Impression Obsession was cut out of “Spring Cardstock“, along with the Scallop Circle that was punched out.
The base card is Ice Silver Curious Metallic Cardstock and the Orange layer is Mandarin Curious Metallic Cardstock.

The Butterfly Die and word stamp (Clear Set-You Are Beautiful) are from Impression Obsession.
