MASKED BRIGHTLY LIT!

I finally had a chance to quickly play with this new stamp set Brightly Lit. I like it as it is something a little different for Christmas.  Not that we have lamp posts like these ones but that’s OK.
Usually when I first play with a set I head to Pinterest and CASE a card.  For this card I CASED one of Amanda’s cards at the Craftspa.com.  You can see her card HERE.

I liked it as it had a masked sponged background. This was my version.

To create your sponged area: first cut a rectangle in your piece of copy paper.  I used the Stampin’ Trimmer to do this.  You could cut any shape you like with the Framelits too.  Below is the rectangle I had.  It is 2cm border each side (or 3/4″). Have the piece of Copy paper the same size as your card mat (whisper white) to be sure you cover the whole piece.  You can adhere the piece on your card with some non-permanent adhesive in a couple of spots or hold the frame in place where you are sponging at the time so it doesn’t move.

I will try to do a video soon but just a note with the sponging: Start with your lighter colour and start off the inside framed area each time you pick up ink.  Move in a circular motion from the outside moving in and along.  I used Marina Mist.  Then pick up a darker colour and just sponge near the edge in a circular motion once again.  This time I used Dapper Denim.  You can lift off an edge carefully and see how it is looking if you like to.  You want to leave a lighter area in the middle.

To finish the card I adhered this to a Dapper Denim card base.  Then add the light post and lamps cut from Smoky Slate.  The centre lights were cut from Daffodil Delight.  The sentiment stamped in Real Red and then cut with the matching Framelits. I added a Silver Taffeta bow to finish.

I have another card with this set to share next time.

DAPPER HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I know I have been sharing lots of Christmas cards recently but there is still so much gorgeous-ness in the Annual Catalogue.  This card I made a few months ago and  I realised I hadn’t shared it with you yet.  I get lots of comments at my classes about this card.

This card uses the Happy Birthday Thinlits with the Color Theory Paper Stack.  You really don’t need much more.

I cut the Happy Birthday out from Black card and also Whisper White.  Then adhered them together and slightly off-set them so you see the white from behind.  I think the white gives it a little extra POP!.

I adhered the piece from the Color Theory Paper stack to a black mat and then adhered it to the Dapper Denim card base.  I stamped the balloon from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set straight on to the DSP in Dapper Denim. That’s always nerve wracking! Stamp it before you assemble the card in case you make a little mistake. 🙂  Then stamp the balloon again on to scrap White card.  The centre “dots” on the balloon were stamped in Soft Sky.  The balloon was punched out with the Balloon Bouquet Punch and raised up with Dimensionals.   I added a Rhinestone too.  Couldn’t resist. 🙂

This would make a good masculine card I think.  It is not too tizzy even with the bling.

Thanks for visiting.  “See” you again soon,

Jenny

 

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS – DAY 4!

DAY 4

Nearly at the end of the week.  Can you believe that?? How have you liked this week showcasing the Carols of Christmas bundle??  So many different looks you can achieve just with the one stamp set and Thinlits.

I have to say this card today is probably my favourite.  It is so funky and fresh.  Totally not your traditional Christmas colours.

It is in Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim.  What do you reckon?? Perhaps I should have had a warning to wear your sunglasses. 🙂

For the sentiment on this one I inked up the top half of the sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist ink by dabbing the inkpad on to the top half of the stamp.  Then I used the Dapper Denim inkpad and dabbed on the ink to the bottom half of the stamp.  Then I stamped it on to a piece of Whisper White card. I love the two-tone effect.  I thought for a little more retro fun I would add an Incolor Bitty Bow.

Tomorrow’s project actually co-ordinates with this one.  Make sure you stop by.

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS – DAY 3!

 

DAY 3

This card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest using a different Christmas set.  I like the idea of the “negative” cut trees.  Check this out!!! The Designer Series Paper is from the Delightful Daisy DSP.  It’s not even a Christmas paper!  It looks like falling snow though doesn’t it.  🙂  The other trees are cut from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

The sentiment on this card is from the Holly, Berry Happiness set.  Such a nice sentiment.  It is stamped in Smoky Slate.  Sometimes I like stamping in the grey.  It is just a little softer.

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS WEEK – DAY 1!

 

DAY 1

My first card for you uses the new Incolor Fresh Fig.  When I first started creating this card I felt the Fresh Fig was a big heavy but adding it to a Thick Whisper White base it lightened it slightly.

The sentiment is layered on to a Copper Foil Sheet mat cut with one of the large Scallop Square Dies from the Layering Square Framelits.  Before I adhered it to the Fresh Fig mat I wrapped around some Copper Thread around the card.  It is just a soft touch. 🙂  I also added some Copper Foil behind the Fresh Fig card at the top to see the Copper through the little cut outs of the moon and stars. 

A tree was cut from the Copper Foil too and raised up with Dimensionals.
