Hi friends, it’s Sandy here today with a fun invitation. I made this tag to invite a friend that I haven’t seen in a while to come over for coffee. The cute coffee cup and cake are on the front, all the information is written on the back. I plan to mail it – it fits perfectly in an A6 envelope.
Shimmer Sheetz Sunday: Scalloped Circle Cards and GIVEAWAY Winners!January 7, 2018
By Judi Kauffman
I’m kicking off 2018 with some super simple cards. Care to join me? Each of them uses only two dies.
Though I chose the Scalloped Circles die set for the main element on all three – an embossed and lightly-sanded Shimmer Sheetz circle, you could easily substitute other circles from the collection, Stitched or Fitted, if you prefer smoother edges.
I chose an ornate embossing folder with ribbons and flowers and combined Fire Opal Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz with its coppery look and silver core (revealed when sanded) with solid color cardstock in shades of peachy pink and orange, a palette that skews toward the feminine without being overly sweet.
Switch the embossing folder and color combination as you choose! For example: With smooth-edged circles and an embossing folder that looks like metal plates (Gold, Silver or Basic Black Shimmer Sheetz) the cards will be decidedly masculine. With a folder like Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Heart Strings (Red or White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz), you’re ready for Valentine’s Day!
Dreams of HydrangeasJuly 31, 2017
Hi everyone! Angela here. For today’s project I have opted to go with a tag using Tags and More 7 – Vine, Susan’s Garden Notes Hydrangea 2, as well as the CountryScapes – Country Fence 1 and Elizabeth Craft’s Leafy Branch. The grass and sky background were created using CountryScapes – Clouds and Grass.
