Dress Up Framelits

It’s been a busy week, but I’ve had a whole bunch of fun making cards. This card was perfect for my mother’s birthday and an upcoming bridal shower. I found my inspiration on Pinterest and made a few changes to work with my cardstock.
Black Dress Doily

I started with the Basic Black card stock base. I then took one of my Oval Framelits, placed it on a piece of Basic Gray card stock and ran it through the Big Shot to create my oval window. I then embossed it with one of Stampin’ Up!’s retired embossing folders. Next I layered a piece of Modern Medley Designer Series Paper under my window and attached this to my card base.

Now came the fun part. I took my Dress Up Framelit and ran it through the Big Shot on Basic Black card stock. I took the Paper Doilies, cut and creased them, to attach to the back of my dress. This entire piece was attached to my card using Dimensionals. Out came the Rhinestones and I trimmed the bottom of the dress, along with placing one on the Whisper White heart that was punched with the Small Heart Punch and attached the heart with a Mini Glue Dot. I next stamped the image from the Ciao, Baby stamp set and punched it out with the Petite Curly Label Punch and attached it to the card with a Dimensional.

Finally I tied my bow from the 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and attached it to the waistline of my dress with a couple of Mini Glue Dots.

Mosaic Madness Strawberry Slush

Mosaic Madness is one of the new sets in our 2013-2014 Annual Catalog. There is so much you can do with this set and the coordinating Mosaic Punch. This is the quick card we made at my Open House. We also used the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder, the Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper, and one of the new In Colors — Strawberry Slush.

I’m loving the embossing folder, since both sides of the design can be used once you have embossed your card stock. Not only did I stamp the two larger mosaic pieces and punched them out, but also used the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack to add the small piece on the one mosaic. Of course, two Rhinestone Jewels needed to be added for just a little bling.

You’re My Type

Once again, this is a stamp set that I couldn’t resist keeping even after it retired, but it’s time for it to find a new home.

Youre my Type

The following is just one of the many cards I created with this set.

Youre my type Embossed

I used the Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler card stock, along with the First Edition Designer Series Paper. The typewriter was stamped in Versamark and embossed with Basic Black embossing powder. I made the flowers from the First Edition paper using the Boho Blossoms punch.
