WDW #3 – Whole Lot of Lovely Card Using 2014-2016 In-Colour Markers

I had so much fun making today’s Weekly Deals Wednesday card.  It uses all the 2014-2016 In-Colour Stampin’ Write Markers as well as the Silver 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, two of the items on offer this week at a discount.  You can see them all here.


I took the markers and basically doodled down the side of a panel of Shimmery White Cardstock, added the silver ribbon and accented it with strips of Basic Black and Tangelo Twist Cardstock.


For the focal image, I chose the beautiful sentiment from the Hostess set A Whole Lot of Lovely.  I love this set with its tiny little flowers.  Heat embossed in silver and layered with some silver metallic thread loops sandwiched in between, I finished it off with some more colouring with the markers.  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by today.

WDW #1 – Circle Flip Card & Banner Punch

Oooh!!! I’m so excited about today’s circle flip card project.  As you know, Stampin’ Up! offers a selection of products from the current catalogues at 25% off the normal retail price, and these change each Wednesday.  This in itself is fabulous – but it just got better – because each Wednesday I’ll be bringing you a project using some or all of those products!  Woohoo!!  Today’s project is the first of what I’m calling the “Weekly Deals Wednesday” (WDW) series. I’ve combined four of the five products included in this week’s weekly deals – the Circle Card Thinlits Dies, the Banner Punch, and Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin’ Pads to stamp the tiny hanging stars on the banner belly band.

There’s a space inside to add a personal message (which I’ve noticed isn’t available on some designs), and also, http://www.besttramadolonlinestore.com because I’ve modified and extended the card itself from the original die design, there’s also room to include a gift card or cash!

The DSP from the Merry Moments stack goes well with the accent colours and the gold embossed sentiments from the Cup of Cheer stamp set (front) and Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set (inside) add a bit of luxury, as do the gold Glimmer Paper accents.

WDW 20151111-3 The gold glimmer circles were punched with the 2½” circle punch and the Mossy Meadow circles (which I lifted up with dimensionals) were cut using the fifth smallest die from the Circles Collection Framelits dies.
