Simple Scrapbooking

 Hello everyone,

I have made a simple scrapbook double page layout today. I prefer that my scrapbook pages are all about the photos and the story, not the embellishments.







The background and the strips of blue are from the Winter Meadow 12”x12” Designer Series Paper (#162133). I stamped some clouds from the Adventurous Sky Stamp set (#163439) onto the background with Smoky Slate ink (#147113). The planes from the same set were stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and I added Silver from the Metallic Wow! Embossing Powder (#165678), then this was set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The planes were cut with the Adventurous Sky Dies (#163446) and taped to the page.

On yesterday’s card I did what I call the shadow effect, so decided to do the same on the photos on these pages. I cut the Real Red card (#106578) the same size as the photos then offset them on 2 sides. These were taped to the pages.

I adhered Adhesive Sheets (#152334) to the back of Real Red card, before cutting with the Mini Alphabet dies (#162934) for the titles. This makes it easy to adhere the letters to the page.

Iconic Celebrations Designer Series Paper

 Hi & welcome again,

I have used the Iconic Celebrations 6”x6” Designer Series Paper (#164193) on today’s card. It would also be a great way to use any scraps, and we all have plenty of those.



I cut each of the squares from the DSP, the sentiment and the Cherry Cobbler card (#121681) with a die from the Stylish Shapes dies (#159183). I attached the DSP to the Cherry Cobbler card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108), offsetting them to give a shadow effect.

The sentiment is from the Loveliest Tree stamp set (#163714) and stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink (#147083).

The Basic White card front (#159228) was dry embossed with one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders (#161598). The edges were daubered with Cherry Cobbler ink, then attached to the Basic White base card.

All the squares were taped to the card. An easy card, but the hardest was probably getting all the squares straight.

Greetings Of The Season Dies

 Hello friends,

The Greetings Of The Season Dies (#164112) has a variety of shapes & sizes so will be very versatile. I have used 3 of the dies for this card.




I used the dies to cut the sentiment, the strip under the sentiment and the large “label” cut out.

I dry embossed the Basic White card front (#159228) with the Cute Crochet 3D Embossing Folder (#163792). I added the strip of Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Paper (#163372) to the card front. The edges were daubered with Petunia Pop ink (#163811), then attached to the Basic White base card.

The large die cut “label” was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). I threaded the Gold trim from the Gold & Silver 1/8” Trim Combo Pack (#161633) through the hole of the label. The sentiment from So Sincere stamp set (#162283) was stamped with Petunia Pop ink. The Petunia Pop card (#163802) and the sentiment were cut with the dies and attached to the card.

The floral image from Thoughtful Wishes stamp set (#162815) was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). I used Stampin’ Blends to colour this - Petunia Pop (#163828), Summer Splash (#163826), Shy Shamrock (#163825) and Peach Pie (#163827). I cut this with the now retired Thoughtful Expressions dies.

The Iridescent Faceted Gems (#163368) were added to finish the card.

Nature’s Sweetness Specialty Designer Series Paper

 Hi friends,

I love when the dies co-ordinate with Designer Series Paper as well as the stamped images.




The DSP here is the Nature’s Sweetness Specialty Designer Series Paper (#162616) and the dies are Lovely & Sweet (#162626). I cut 2 images from the DSP.

The DSP for the card front is from the same pack and this was matted with Basic Black card (#12688) and attached to the Basic White base card (#159228).

I dry embossed a piece of Basic White card with the So Swirly Embossing Powder (#163791) and also matted this with Basic Black card.

The die cut pieces were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). “Congratulations” from the Everyday Greetings stamp set (#165084) was Gold embossed using VersaMark (#102283) and Gold from the Metallic Wow! Embossing Powder (#165678). The Heat Tool (#129056) was used to set this. A Greetings Of The Season die (#164112) was used to cut the sentiment.

The Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gems (#161288) were added to the card.

Stylish Shapes dies

 Hi crafty friends,

I was needing a masculine card so here is what I made, using a variety of dies.




The Basic White card front (#159228) was dry embossed with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder (#156406). This was matted with Garden Green card (#108605) and attached to the Basic White base card.

The 2 pieces of DSP are from the Country Woods 12”x12” Designer Series Paper (#163393). The vertical piece on the left side of the card was punched each end with the retired Banners Pick A Punch. The other piece was cut with a die from the Stylish Shapes dies (#158183). These were taped to the card front.

I cut the leaves from various die sets - Layers Of Beauty (#163518), Delicate Forest (#162679 and Encircled In Nature (#162628). The card used for these are Old Olive (#106576), Garden Green & Pecan Pie (#161726).

I cut the Basic Black (#121688) and Basic Gray (#121689) squares with the Stylish Shapes dies. The black square was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). 

“Happy Birthday” from the Translucent Florals stamp set (#162243) was stamped with Basic Gray ink (#149165) and also cut with the Stylish Shapes dies.

The leaves were attached with Mini Glue Dots (#103683), Adhesive Sheets (#152334) and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108).

Labelled With Love Dies

 Hi Stamping friends,

I have used the Labelled with Love dies (#163570) for the cutouts on the card front.




After cutting the Soft Sea Foam card front (#147012) with the dies, I dry embossed it with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder (#156406). This was attached with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108) to a piece of the Season Of Green & Gold 12”x12” Specialty Designer Series Paper (#164324). I matted this with Gold Foil Sheets (#132622) and attached it to the Very Vanilla card base (#106550).

The flower is from the Spotlight On Nature stamp set (#163579). I stamped this with VersaMark (#102283) and added the Gold from the Metallics Wow! Embossing Powder (#165678), then set it with the Heat Tool (#129056). I fussy cut the floral image.

The sentiment was also Gold heat embossed. I used a die from the Greetings Of The Season die (#164112). The floral image and sentiment were attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I threaded the Gold from the Gold & Silver 1/8” Trim Combo Pack (#161633) through the label for the sentiment. The Brushed Brass Butterflies (#158136) were added to the card.

Thoughtful Journey Designer Series Paper

 Hi & welcome,

A quick & easy card today and there is no stamping. Just some Designer Paper & embossing folders.




I dry embossed the Basic White card front (#159228) with the Cute Crochet 3D Embossing Folder (#163792) and attached it to the Fresh Freesia base card (#155614).

The DSP from the Thoughtful Journey 6”x6” Designer Series Paper (#163303) was matted with Fresh Freesia card, and attached to the card front.

“Celebrate” is cut and embossed with the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid Embossing Folder (#162927). This cuts and embosses at the same time with a die which fits into the embossing folder. I used Gold Foil Sheet (#132622) for this and attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108).

The card was finished by adding the Brushed Brass Butterflies (#158136).

As I said, quick & easy.
