Wonderfall Leaves Easel Card

I created this easel card with the fabulous Wonderfall stamp set and Autumn Accents die.  The card base was die cut with the Floral Framelits.  The technique I used to color the leaves I learned at convention.  The large leaf was stamped in More Mustard.  I then sponged the edges with Cajun Craze and distressed the leaf by folding it in my hand.  I opened up the leaf then took my Raspberry Ripple ink pad and stamped the leaf with the ink pad.  The folds picked up the ink fabulously!  I used the same technique for the smaller leaf.

I embossed the Very Vanilla background layer for the card with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  For the Very Vanilla bottom layer I stamped the image with the Daydream Medallions then die cut it with the Floral Framelits.  I used the rock’n roll technique for the sentiment.  I always forget about this technique and need to use it more.

Dreamy Owl Easel card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy and Neutral (Crumb Cake, Whisper White or Very Vanilla).  When I saw these colors together a cute dreamy owl came to mind.  As mentioned in my earlier post, my latest addiction are easel cards.  For this card I used the large Circle Scallop die to die cut the base in Marina Mist.  I also used the Mixed Bunch stamp set and punch.  I stamped the Very Vanilla with Marina Mist and Not Quite Navy to create the backgrounds.  I used the Owl Builder, Two Step Bird, Blossom, Punch Pack and Modern Label punches.  For some dreamy shimmer I smooched my card with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch.  I went overboard with the pearls but I think it made my card.  The sentiment is stamped with Not Quite Navy and heat embossed with Iridescent embossing powder.

Enchanted Butterfly Easel Cards

Okay, I admit it.  I’m totally in love with the Everyday Enchantment DSP in the Sale-a-bration catalog.  The colors of Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Lucky Limeade are…do I dare say,  so enchanting!  I can’t stop creating with these colors and paper.  Today my man in brown delivered my latest stash from Stampin’ Up!  With this order I received the Beautiful Butterflies Stampin’ Up! Bigz Die.  This is not a new die but it’s one that’s been on my wish list and I finally purchased it.  My latest card addiction is making easel cards so I created a small butterfly and large butterfly easel card.  I’m making the smaller one for my customers and the larger one is for me.  I’m putting it on my desk.  I think it would add a bit whimsy and color to my office.  What do you think?

Valentine Easel Shaker Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a technique challenge – Shaker Cards!  I’ve never made this type of card but since I have the Stampin’ Up! Heart Framelits it was easy to make using two different sizes of heart dies to make the red heart frame for the window.  For the easel base I used the large scallop heart framelit.  The cute stamped image is from the Take it to Heart stamp set featured in the new occasions mini.  Can you guess how I created the background?  I used the Lots of Love Letterpress plate.  The letter press embosses and can also ink at the same time.  For a more subtle background you don’t have to ink it up.  The shaker heart is filled with the scrap small hearts after using the Pinking Hearts border punch.  A bit of mica flakes is also mixed with the small hearts to add  some additional sparkle.
