Happy New Year

This card is for the Retro Sketches challenge (RS44).

I wanted a dramatic look so went with black and white.  I used the SU stamp New Year's stamped in black and then embossed with clear embossing powder to make it pop.  Below that is some retired DSP by SU called Night and Day. To the left is a little piece of silver wrapping paper left over from who knows what :-).  The sentiment and DSP are popped up on dimensionals. I added a black button with black & white Baker's twine.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!

Stamps: New Year's
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, silver wrapping paper, Night and Day DSP (ret)
Ink: Black
Accessories: Clear embossing powder, earth elements black button, corner rounder, Baker's twine, dimensionals, glue dot, Fishtail Flag Stax (MFT)

Comfort Food

Here are a couple more cards that I made while my daughter was in town for Christmas.  Both of these cards use Comfort Foods by PTI.  The spoons were stamped first in black to get the outlines. Then they were were stamped with the back of the stamp to fill in the color.  I got the idea from this card by Cristina at My Paper Secret. This was not so easy to do since the stamp didn't stick to the acrylic block when using it backwards and I had to just use my fingers. On my first try I thought it came out too dark so I stamped off once before stamping on the card.

The 2nd card is a total case of the card mentioned above. I used a craft knife to make a slit in the bowl for the spoon.

Supplies listed for both cards:
Stamps: Comfort Food (PTI)
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Calypso Coral, Pool Party DSP
Ink: Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Black
Accessories: Comfort Food die (PTI) , the heart is from the Owl punch (SU), dimensionals, Baker's twine, SU border punch

I'm Back - I Hope

It's been a while since my last post. December was a busy month with a baby shower for my daughter and then Christmas. Now I'm trying to catch up.  Here is a card that I made when my daughter and I had some stamping time together.

I started with the new Papertrey Cover Plate: Circles in white. I stamped the individual circles with SU Make a Mitten. The reindeer are Midnight Muse, The poinsettia shapes are Pacific Point and the snowflakes are Cool Caribbean.  I thought it was too white so I changed the diamonds to Tempting Turquoise.  The circles on the left and right are stamped with Country Charm by WPlus9. The sentiment is Think Big Favorites #22 by Papertrey Ink.  I added some Baker's Twine & grosgrain ribbon to finish it off.  I'll try to have more cards tomorrow :-)

Stamps: Make a Mitten (SU), Country Charm (WPlus9), Think Big Favorites #22 (PTI)
Paper: Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise (SU)
Ink: Midnight Muse, Pacific Point, & Cool Caribbean (SU)
Accessories: Tempting Turquoise 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Baker's twine
Tools: Cover Plate: Circles (PTI)
