The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Let It Snow Card

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a beautiful and elegant card that could be used as a Christmas card or just a winter wishes card.


This card came together pretty quick and easy.  The base is white cardstock with a Bazzill Gold Mirror Cardstock for a mat.  Then I used another piece of white cardstock to stamp the snowflakes from the JustRite® Papercraft CL-02053 Snowflakes Cling Stamps with VersaMark Ink and then I used Ranger Detailed Gold Embossing Powder and heat embossed the snowflakes.  I added some  Venise Lace 1.75" - Gabriella White and create a bow with Fig Beige Seam Binding.


I used more Bazzill Gold Mirror Cardstock and white cardstock along with Spellbinders Paper Arts S4-465 Labels Forty to create the two label shapes.  I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed using the same ink and embossing powder as mentioned above.  I used 3D Foam Squares to layer the label die cut shapes.  To finish off the card I added a few Crystal Iridescent Sequins- 10 mm and Melissa Frances White Pearls.


I hope you are enjoying the last few days before Christmas and things aren't getting too rushed and crazy in your life.  Remember to step back and really enjoy the moment and the true spirit of Christmas.

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Have a Merry Christmas Watercolor and Texture Paste Card

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have another Christmas card to share with you.  Last week I did a Christmas card with detailed watercolor, you can click HERE if you missed it.  This week I did another watercolor but this is a very quick and easy watercolor wash.


Here is the card that I designed.  To start I used a piece of Ranger Watercolor Paper and stamped a sentiment from the  JustRite Papercraft CR-02133 Extra Grand Holiday Sentiments Clear Stamps.  I used VersaMark Ink and Stampendous Super Fine Embossing Powder - Detail White and a heat tool to heat set the sentiment.  Then to do the watercolor wash I used a larger flat brush to wet the entire sheet of paper.  I used an acrylic block and added ink from the Tim Holtz Distress Inks pads on to the acrylic block.  If you don't have a larger acrylic block you can use a craft mat or a sheet of wax paper or freezer wrap paper will work too.  Take the paint brush and add water to the inks to create the watercolor.  Go back and forth over the paper with long wide strokes adding in the color until you get the look you like.  You don't have to cover the entire piece of paper, actually leaving a little white space with this technique looks the best.  


Once the watercolor was dry then I used a Prima Elementals Stencil 6.5 x 10.25 - Bubbles and some Studio 490 Embossing Paste - Crackled Texture to create the crackles circles.  This kind of reminds me of snow crystals with the crackles.  Once the texture paste was dry then I went over each circle with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to add a little bit of sparkle.  It's hard to pick up the shimmer with the camera but I think you can see it on a few of the circles in this picture.  


To embellish the card I used some May Arts 3/8" Metallic Velvet across the top of the card and then I cut two of the May Arts Satin Jumbo Silver Snowflakes and layered them using  3D Foam Squares.  To finish off the card I used a few KaiserCraft Silver Rhinestones.

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Beautiful Christmas Ornaments with Watercolor Card

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a beautiful and elegant watercolor Christmas card to share with you.


Here is the card I designed.  I use two stamps from the Penny Black Most Wonderful stamp set.  I used VersaMark Ink with Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder to heat emboss the image.  I inked just the top half of the Christmas stamp with the snowflake so I could used the word Christmas.


I used Distress Markers and a Faber-Castell Mix & Match Water Brush to watercolor the ornaments and the background.  All of the marker colors are listed below.  Then for a little sparkle I used the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen in all of the white spaces on the ornaments.


I used A2 Matting Basics A and A2 Matting Basics B die templates from  Spellbinders Paper Arts to cut/emboss the mats.  Then I layered the pieces and added them to a green card base.  The beautiful gold cardstock is Bazzill Gold Mirror Cardstock and it is perfect to use with all of your holiday cards.


To finish off the card I added a few Sequins Crystal Iridescent 5mm.

ButterBeeScraps Holly Leaf and Berries Necklace and Earring Set

Hello everyone!  Today, I have a ButterBeeScraps project to share with you.  I designed a necklace and earring set that is perfect for the holidays.


Here is the necklace and earrings.  I just love how this turned out!  I have to tell you I was at a show this weekend and in between customers I made this necklace and earring set.  Before I even had a chance to take any pictures of it, it was sold LOL!  So I made another set.  I love to deep red from the crystal beads with the bronze.


Here is a picture of the Bronze Tibetan Style Leaf Pendants (Item #J027-B) with the beads moved to the back so you can see the detail.  I soon as I saw this leaf pendant it reminded me of the holly leaf and I knew exactly what I wanted to design with it.


To create the beaded dangles I used red crystals beads,  Bronze Ball End Head Pins, and Bronze Filigree Bead Caps (Item #CAP052-B).  These are my favorite bead caps!  Then I used the smallest of the Bronze Jump Rings and added links to each of the bead dangles.  Then I put all of the bead dangles on a larger jump ring and added them to the Bronze Tibetan Style Leaf Pendants (Item #J027-B).  Then I added the pendant to a piece of 24 in Bronze Chain (Item #CH779-B) and added a clasp.



I think this looks just like a holly leaf with some berries.


Here is a close up of the earrings.


This will be such a festive set for the holidays!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - CAS Elegant White and Gold Christmas Card

Hello everyone!  Well, it's the day after Thanksgiving and the official kick off to Christmas.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you were all able to spend some time with family and friends and have some yummy food too.  Black Friday--are you brave and face all the crazy shopping crowds or do you stay home?  We are just staying home--where it's nice and warm.  :)  Today is also my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a very elegant but CAS (Clean And Simple) Christmas card to share with you.


Crisp and clean--white and gold.  I think this is probably the simplest Christmas card I have ever made but I have to tell you I absolutely love it!  CAS is usually not my style but I do try to step out of the box every now and then and sometimes I surprise myself LOL!  I have been looking at this beautiful Penny Black Adornment stamp for a little while so when I received it in my DT package I was over the moon.  I love the wispy look of the wreath and it can be used for so many occasions.  I stamped the image using VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad and then heat embossed using Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and a heat tool.  Then I used S4-420 Majestic Circles die template to cut/emboss the die cut.  I added 3D Foam Squares to the die cut for some dimension.


Here is a close up of the wreath.  I also added a few Melissa Frances White Pearls.


To finish off the card I stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner using one of the stamps from the JustRite Papercraft CR-02047 Snowflake Vintage Labels Seven Clear Stamps.  I also embossed the sentiment.  Then I added some  May Arts Metallic Gold String to the side of the card and tied a bow.  If you are still needing to make some Christmas cards this would be a good one that you could make several of in very little time.

Happy Thanksgiving - ButterBeeScraps Vintage Key Necklaces - Small Business Saturday Shopaholic SALE-bration

Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.  We just had a small group this year but that's ok it was very nice and relaxing.  It's always nice to have a day spent with the ones you love and give thanks for all the many blessings in life.


Today, I have some vintage key necklaces to share with you.  This past summer when I was at a local antique shop I found a two sandwich sized ziplock bags filled with all kinds of vintage keys.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do with then--turn them into necklaces.  I used several small bits and pieces from metal filigrees to charms and crystals from ButterBeeScraps to embellish the keys.


Here is the first necklace.  For this one I added some  SS8 Crystal Rhinestone Chain TrimSilver FiligreeSilver Jump Rings, and  Silver Chain from ButterBeeScraps.  I also painted and distressed the key and added a tiny white pearl flower.


All of the necklaces are pretty much the same style--all painted and distressed and then embellished.  For this necklace I added a Bronze Filigree FlowerSilver Miniature Butterfly Charms, and a SS16 Clear Flat Back Glass Rhinestones.  Then I added a Bronze Jump Rings and attached it to some Bronze Chain (Item #CH779-B),


for the third necklace I added Bronze FiligreeSS8 Crystal Rhinestone Chain Trim and a Clear AB SS8 Pointy Back Crystal Rhinestones.  I added a Silver Jump Ring and Silver Chain.  I also added a tiny white pearl flower.


This is one of my favorite ones. The key is so tiny and the design is very simple.  To embellish this key I added a Bronze Tibetan Style Connectors (Item #J375-B)Copper Lock and Key Toggle Clasps (Item #CL543-C)SS16 Clear Flat Back Glass Rhinestones, and a Crystal Charm.  The key was added to a Bronze Jump Ring and Bronze Chain (Item #CH779-B).


This necklace is another favorite.  I added a Cabochon that I added a small bird image to and then I added a Bird Charm.  I attached the key to a Bronze Jump Ring and Bronze Chain (Item #CH779-B).

I had a lot of fun creating necklaces with these vintage keys.

Heart and Rose Bezel Necklace

Hello everyone!  Today, I have a quick post and a jewelry piece to share with you.  I have been busy creating and getting ready for a show this weekend.  I will be posting all the details tomorrow for the Small Business Saturday show that I will be attending.


This is one of the bezel pieces that I recently created.  The bezel is GLLB-001G Large Heart Bezel-Bronze that is part of the Gilded Life Collection with Spellbinders Paper Arts®.  I added a die cut piece with an image of a rose.  To create the die cut I used the matching die, GLD-001 Heart Dies.  I used Mod Podge to seal the image and adhere it to the bezel. 


Next I added some diamond stickles to the image.  You can see a little bit of the sparkle in this photo.  For embellishments I added a pink resin rose, a couple of pearls and some rhinestone chain.


To finish off the necklace I added a jump ring and then added the bezel to a piece of silk.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Don't forget to stop back tomorrow to find out all of the details about the upcoming Small Business Saturday event!

Heidi

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Christmas Candle and Matching Card Set

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have an altered candle and matching card set that is perfect for gift giving.


I know we all need quick and inexpensive gifts during the holiday season and these candles with a matching card are easy to make and very inexpensive.  I used some gold foil pattern paper from the Kaisercraft Yuletide 6 1/2'' Paper Pad to make a belly band around the candle and then I added some gorgeous Venise Lace.  I used a lot of the same products on both the candle and card.


I used some of the May Arts Satin Holly Leaves and I brushed Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue on the leaves and sprinkled with Tim Holtz Distress Glitter-Antique Linen.  I also added some glitter to the Glitter Jingle Bells - Gold Assorted.  Now these bells already come with gold glitter on them but I wanted to glitter to match the holly leaves so that is why I added more glitter.


After I added the holly leaves and bells then I added a pretty gold bow made with May Arts Metallic Gold String and the finish it off I added a few Kaisercraft Sparklets-Rouge to look like holly berries.


Here is a look at the matching card.  I used more pattern papers from the Kaisercraft Yuletide 6 1/2'' Paper Pad.  I created two die cuts using S2-120 Spellbinders Die D-Lites - Peace SentimentS4-418 Labels Thirty-Six.  I also used Bazzill Gold Mirror Cardstock on one of the die cuts.


Here is a close up of the card.  I fussy cut the center image with the sentiment from one of the sheets of paper in the same paper pad.  I love using little images like this.

ButterBeeScraps Enjoy the Journey Vintage/Shabby 8 x 10 Altered Canvas

Hello everyone!  Today, I have an altered 8 x 10 canvas to share with you.  


I used several metal filigree pieces from ButterBeeScraps to embellish the canvas.  I started by painting the edges of the canvas with ivory acrylic paint and then I added some Faded Jeans Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain.  The Faded Jeans color was the perfect match for the flowers in the DCWV The Primrose pattern paper.  Next, I added a piece of the pattern paper to the background on the canvas.  I used a tiny dot stencil and a doily stencil with some homemade texture paste to add some interest and dimension to the background paper.  After the texture paste was dry I added some ivory acrylic paint and Antique Linen Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain on top of the stencils.  Next, I fussy cut the postcards, ticket and banner pieces.  I distressed the edges on the postcards and ticket and added them to the center of the canvas.


I added Bronze Chain (Item #CH779-B) across the top of the canvas and then I added the banner pieces.  To decorate the banner pieces I added lace, Bronze Filigree 409-B, flat back pearls, and Pink Resin Roses.


Here is a close up of the banner.


On each side of the banner I left the chain longer to add some pearl dangles.  I used Bronze Ball End Head PinsBronze Filigree Bead Caps (Item #CAP052-B) and pearls to create the dangles.


In the lower left corner I added a doily and then I used one of the  Large Bronze Cameo Frames (Item #F623-B) with a  Large Oval Glass Cabochons (Item #CAB017) to create the sentiment.  The paper is from the same collection and I dry brushed some of the ivory paint on to the frame.  Then I added some WOC Flowers.


I create a couple more small flowers clusters on the other side of the canvas.  Then I added a Bronze Decorative Key and a Bronze Filigree Flower 124-B with a 6 mm flat back pearl on top.


I love how vintage and shabby this canvas turned out!  Don't forget you can click on all of the picture to enlarge them and see all the details.

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Picture Perfect Christmas Card with Tutorial

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a sparkling Christmas card and a short tutorial to share with you.


Here is the card that I designed.  I love all of the layers, texture and sparkle with this card.


To start I taped down a piece of green snowflake pattern paper from the Graphic 45 Twas the Night before Christmas 6 x 6 paper pad and then I taped the Prima Bubbles Stencil on top and added Studio 490 Embossing Paste - White.  


Carefully remove the stencil and then I added Stampendous Crystal Glitter - Ultra-Fine Translucent on top of the embossing paste while it was still wet.


Next I used S4-435 Picture Perfect die template to create the die cut.  To add the color I used   Tim Holtz Distress Markers and Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen.


I used an acrylic block to scribble some of the color from the markers and then I picked up the color with the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and used it the same way you would a watercolor brush and added the color to the image.


Here is a close up of the image.  Look at all the shimmer!


Here is a close up of the embossing paste with the glitter.  Even more sparkle lol!
