Crafting Forever Fun

QEVA5281

Crafting Forever is such a fun set!  All of the attendees of Center Stage were presented this set in April at our dinner.  There are great pictures of scissors, brushes, a stamp, and the cute pens above!  There is even a Stampin’ Up! Copyright stamp in there so you can sell your creations while complying with the Angel Policy.

I cut the card stock just a hair taller than the pens.  The stamp has 3 pens lined up-so I just stamped them side by side.  I did make the paper longer so I could cut off the ends that weren’t straight.

I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class this month!  I love how it turned out!

I just got my box of goodies and the paste was in the box!  I can’t wait to try it out!

Ribbon of Courage is a beautiful set that Patty Bennett (awesome demo!) helped design after reaching her 1 million in career sales!  After going through breast cancer myself last year, I was so happy when I got this set at On Stage!  There is even a matching Framelit set!

IT’s so versatile that you can use any color for the ribbons to help support your cause!  You can use the hearts by themselves for Valentine’s day cards too!  I chose to use the new In Color Powder Pink for my base.  I accented it with Blushing Bride and Whisper White card stock.  The sentiments are beautiful and the images are elegant!

I added the word hope, from the Sunshine Sayings framelits, using Silver Glimmer paper.

High Tide So Serene

By the Tide II

High Tide is a wonderful set to use when making thinking of you cards, sympathy cards, masculine cards, and framed art pieces! I really enjoyed the 2 step stamping that this set showcases!

I am usually a card maker that loves a lot of layers!  This has the texture and movement of the Cherry Cobbler embossed piece underneath the main image.  I used the Seaside Embossing Folder for that and used the NEW Wood Textures 6×6 paper pack!  Can I tell you this pack if FULL of great wood images!  The possibilities are endless with this paper pack! With the rustic farm designs taking storm lately, this is a must for your paper stash!

By The Tide

I first used the Cherry Cobbler and stamped the 1st part of the lighthouse.  Then I used Dapper Denim to add the dimension.  The photopolymer stamps really make this a seamless image! I used Crumb Cake for the sand stamp and Old Olive for the beach grass.  Next I used Dapper Denim for the water waves and followed that with a blender pen to create the softer water color. The sentiment is stamped with Basic Gray so it wouldn’t take over the focal point.  The linen thread was added for a little more texture.
