Wedding Bliss | Gift Slider Die

The other day I posted a card using Cranberry Bliss (CS-0090) card stock and Turbo Teal ink (IP-0116) I had a piece left over and thought I would make a wedding card. Here is the link to the card from the other day that shows how I did the background.     To that base using Foam Squares (AD-0085) I popped up a heart using our Heart Felt Dies (DI-0033) and Heart Piercing Elements (DI-0096) from Mirror Silver (CS-0137).  On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040), I stamped Wedding Bliss (AT-0170) in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) and cut it out.

Using Sparkle Silk (IP) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097), I colored in the layers on the cake to give it some sparkle.  The Wedding Bliss image was popped up using Foam Squares and a piece of Black Licorice Twine (AC-0004) was added to the back.  I added some Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115) using Glue Dots (AD-0083).  I still thought it needed something so I added a Heart from the Fire and Ice (AC-0346) [these are part of our Bloom Benefits] [The Love Filled embellishments (AC-0345) would also look nice on this card – I will list them in the supply list below].

For the inside I used the Gift Slider Die Set (DI-0384) and cut that out of Mirror Silver (CS-0137) to keep with the wedding theme.

What?!?!? – Turbo Teal Ink and Cranberry Bliss Card Stock

Sometimes the creative mind takes over and you just have to go with it!!!

I wanted to make some birthday cards to have on hand and I know I wanted to use the Ink Splat (AT-0108) ATS.  I pulled out a piece of Cranberry Bliss (CS-0090) card stock and for whatever reason reached for my Turbo Teal Ink Pad (IP-0116).  Well I have to say I love how it turned out!

I adhered the Cranberry Bliss piece to a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) and then adhered it to a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.

Make a Wish

Using Silver Embossing Powder (IP-0100) I heat embossed the Make-A-Wish ATS (AT-0246) onto Black Licorice (CS-0003) and cut it out with the coordinating die (DI-0355) or you can buy it as a bundle (BD-0270).  I then popped it up using Foam Squares (AD-0085).  I added some Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115) using Glue Dots (AC-0083)Journey Glaze (AD-0003) was applied to the cup of the sequin.  I wanted to try it.  It doesn’t change the look but it changed the texture when you touch them.  Makes them rounded.

For the inside I stamped it the same way as the card front but used the Gift Slider Die Set (DI-0384) so that you can add a gift card.  I will be posting a couple other cards that I made using this die set throughout the week.  I wasn’t sure if I really needed this die in my stash or not but I have to say that I am so glad that I purchased it.  It comes in handy for gift card giving and I love the uniqueness of it.

Happy gift card giving!



Double Pocket Card|Gift Card Holder|Rainbow Drops

I needed to make several gift card holders and pulled out the Double Pocket Card Die (DI-0298).  I love how easy it is to but this together and that you have 2 pockets, one for the gift card and the other for a note.  There is also a Pocket Trim Die set (DI-0297) available that compliments this die set.

Double Pocket Die

I used a 12 x 12 piece of Beach Breeze (CS-0051) card stock and my Journey Platinum Machine (TO-0090) to cut out the die.  I used White Liner (AD-0001) to adhere the tab pieces together to make the pocket.  The die does make score lines so it is easy to figure out where to make your folds.  I used the snowflake from the Ski Sled Skate (SS-0360) stamp set and inked it up in Beach Breeze (IP-0044) ink for the front of the pocket.

I had a piece that I created previously when I was playing with the Gel Press (JM-0107), Lovely Blue Liquid Color (IP-0134) and the Winter Wonderland Stencil (JM-0086).  It was perfect to use on this card as a background for the note card and the accent trim piece on one of the pockets.

Double Pocket Die 4

Using the Snow Blooms Die Set (DI-0253) I cut out the pieces using Mirror Silver (CS-0137) and Brush Silver (CS-0135).   

Double Pocket Die 3

For the note I stamped the Merry Christmas in Catalina Splash (IP-0073) ink from the Merry Words (SS-0451) stamp set.  I added one of the Brush Silver snowflakes to the bottom and added one of our Rainbow Drops (AC-0178).  I added a Brush Silver snowflake to the trim part of the pocket and added a Cut Rhinestone (AC-0023) to the center.  The big snowflake was adhered to the front pocket using a Foam Square (AD-0085) and then a Rainbow Drop was added to the middle using Glue Dots (AD-0083).

Double Pocket Die 2

I love our Rainbow Drops.  I am so glad they are part of the 12 Days of Deals. I am buying 2 sets as I do use them a lot.
