Glitter Queens Blog Hop – Layer Up!

 

It’s time for the Glitter Queens Blog Hop! Our theme this month is Layer Up! I hope you’ll visit all the Glitter Queens participating in the hop! 

 

First Frost

I actually have two cards to share with you today! They both use the stamp set First Frost and the coordinating dies, Frosted Bouquet.  The sentiment, roses and greenery were stamped with images from the stamp set and then cut out with the dies.  The silver foil sprigs were also cut out using the dies as well as the Shaded Spruce piece behind the sentiment.

I ran my Whisper White layer through my die-cutting machine using the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder to add some extra dimension to my card.  Three rhinestones were added for some extra added bling! 

First Frost Stamp Set

My next card uses some non-traditional colors of Purple Posy and Highland Heather. I made a few subtle changes such as only adding two roses to this one, I omitted the greenery and used larger rhinestones. In real life, both cards have so much sparkle!!

Frosted Bouquet

You can find both the stamp set, First Frost, and the Frosted Bouquet Dies in the Annual Catalog.  For more information about any of the products I used, click the images in the supply list below!

Glitter Queens Blog Hop – Treat Holders!

It’s time for the Glitter Queens Blog Hop and this month we’re sharing treat holders!

Gum Holder

My treat holder fits a pack of gum, perfectly! This is a project I’ve shared before but when you use brand new paper (I used Monster Bash Designer Series Paper), it becomes new again! Three months ago I joined Weight Watchers so I knew my treat holder couldn’t have chocolate in it (I LOVE chocolate) so I opted for a delicious pack of gum!

Monster Bash Designer Series Paper

This little treat holder couldn’t be easier to make! You’ll need to do a little scoring and a little cutting and that’s it.  It comes together really quickly! I don’t have a new video today creating my project using Monster Bash Designer Series Paper but I do have a video I made last year that will demonstrate how to make the holder and all the measurements (please note:  the Designer Series Paper and stamp set used in the video are no longer available).  You can find the video farther down in this post. 

Monster Bash Treat Holder

Gum Holders Monster Bash Designer Series Paper

I used Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie cardstock to create the holder. A strong adhesive is needed to assemble the box so I used Tear & Tape. There’s a little flap on the front of the box that is held closed with Glittered Organdy Ribbon. The sentiment sits on  Silver Glimmer Paper and both were cut out using our Layering Circle Dies.  Sometimes it can be tricky getting things to stick to glimmer paper so I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  To attach the glimmer paper and sentiment to the box, I added more liquid glue to the upper half of the circle. Our Every Season Punch Pack has a cute little bat that I cut out using Basic Black cardstock and adhered with a glue dot (you could use the glue again but the dot fits perfectly).  I used Snail adhesive to attach the Monster Mash Designer Series Paper to the holder but again, you could use liquid glue. 

This is the gum I used!

Glitter Queens Blog Hop – Shaker Cards

It’s the beginning of a brand new month which means it’s time for the Glitter Queens Blog Hop! This month it’s all about Shaker Cards!

Tea Together Shaker Card

I started with a card base of Thick Whisper White cardstock. I like to use this thick paper any time my base is white because it’s sturdier and with the extra weight of a shaker card, it’s a good choice. The next layer is a piece of Calypso Coral that was placed inside the Mosaic 3D embossing folder and run through a die-cutting machine.

To create the window, I used the Layering Squares Dies, one inside the other as indicated in the image below.  You’ll need a clear Window Sheet to keep all the sequins inside so I used a piece that measured 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″. To attach the Window Sheet, I added Multipurpose Liquid Glue all around the edges of the rectangle.  Then I added our Foam Adhesive Strips on each side of the rectangle. 

Layering Squares Dies

Once I figured out where I wanted my Iridescent Sequins to go, I shook them out onto the card base – I wish I had added a little more than I did. Next, I peeled off the backing on the rectangle and attached the window to the card. 

 

The sentiment was stamped in Calypso Coral ink using the stamp set Parcels & Petals and cut out with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  The flowers were stamped in Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock using the stamp set, Tea Together. They were colored in using Stampin’ Blends:  Calypso Coral Dark and Light, Granny Apple Green Dark and Light and Pineapple Punch Light. The flowers were cut out using the Tea Time Dies.  I got these dies when they were a Sale-a-bration free gift.  I’m so glad they can now be purchased in the Annual Catalog!

The smaller flower was attached to the frame of the window using Snail and the larger one has Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back. A shaker card may look like it’s really hard to make but it isn’t! I hope you’ll give it a try!

Glitter Queens Blog Hop – All About Men

It’s time for the Glitter Queens Blog Hop and this month it’s all about men! I have to admit, it was REALLY hard for me to come up with a card suitable for a man.  Ever since I lost my dad almost ten years ago, I just haven’t been able to make a Father’s Day card. I’ve made cards for my husband but I usually sneak in some feminine touches.  It’s so hard not to add a rhinestone or two!!!  

I tend to give my brother in law gift cards so I made my cards today with him in mind! I made a video last year showing how to create this type of gift card holder which you can view here! (Please note:  many of the products in the video have retired).  (more…)

Holiday Bag Tags

Yesterday was the Glitter Queens Blog Hop where we each made bags and tags! If you didn’t get a chance to check out all the great projects, click here!

I don’t normally post on Saturday but I promised to share how I made my tags so I have a video for you today! Making your own tags makes your gift even more special. You’ll find the video below and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me!  (more…)
