Delightful Decorations

September 29th, 2009

I was in the stampin’ zone yesterday for the first time in a long time.  Of course it was driving me crazy that I couldn’t yet share what I had created, so last night I got back in my stamp room and made 2 more quick cards, this time featuring Delightful Decorations from the SU Holiday Mini along with the coordinating punch. Both of these cards turned out to be SUO.

This first card was inspired by one I saw in blogland using Baroque Motifs – I’m so sorry that I now have no idea where I saw it.  That’s why I love the gallery at SCS – I can put a card in my faves and go back and reference it and always give credit for inspiration.  When I’m blog surfing I always forget where I’ve been!


I wanted to use some non-traditional colors on this one.  The motif is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink and then stamped again slightly off in Basic Gray ink to give a shadow effect.  The little flower/snowfalkes are Crushed Curry and the ornament is Melon Mambo edged with a little Basic Gray sponging.  The ornament was punched out and popped up on dimensionals and finished off with a pink rhinestone brad.  The sentiment from Many Merry Messages is stamped in Basic Gray.

I love this next card and I wish you could really see the awesome shimmer here. I just couldn’t get a good photo, but you MUST try this new shimmer paint on a stamp – a real WOW!


The medallion stamp was inked up with Handsome Hunter ink and the Frost White shimmer paint (from the Holiday Mini) was dabbed onto the stamp with a sponge.  It was then stamped onto Very Vanilla cs.  The ornament was given the same treatment with real red ink and the shimmer paint and then it was punched and popped up on a dimensional.  It was finished off with a square red rhinestone brad and silver cording.  Cardstock colors are Handsome Hunter and Real Red.  This has a rich vintage look in person.

I’m running late for work so I need to dash.  Thanks for stopping by.
