August Stamp of the Month Blog Tour - TAG IT
Welcome to your next stop on the RemARKables Blog Tour. If you're taking the tour in order, you've arrived via Pam Staples' blog, http://www.sunnygirlscraps.com.
My first contribution is an early Christmas card. It was so much fun trying out many new products from the Holiday catalog. I started with a Cherry Cobbler card base and added a layer of Whisper White stamped with Cherry Cobbler using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. I then embossed it with the Big Shot and the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The two red circles were created using the 1-3/4" Circle Punch and topped with a Frosted Finishes Embellishment.
I added a couple of strips from the Season of Style Designer Washi Tape. I'm working on putting more layered effects into my cards. This was accomplished by using the Santa Tag It Stamp, hand- colored with Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green Stampin' Write Markers. The tag is hanging from a triple layer of Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine and was cut out using the Chalk Talk framelits. I added a small "ribbon" of Whisper White Card Stock with the "Ho Ho Ho" stamped in Gumball Green from the Oh, Goodie! Stamp Set.
Finally - to create a "finished look" to the card, I added a layer of Whisper White Card Stock topped with two more strips of the Season of Style Designer Washi Tape.
My second card was made using the new Label Card Thinlits Dies. I started with Whisper White Card Stock, ran it through the Big Shot first with the Thinlits and then using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.
The labels were created with Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper and with Whisper White (inside.) I cut two additional strips of Gingham Garden DSP to outline the edges of the card - then punched the butterfly out of DSP using the Elegant Butterfly Punch.
The two circles on the front of the label were made using Island Indigo Card Stock and Strawberry Slush Card Stock as well as the 1-1/4" Circle Punch and 1-3/8" Circle Punch. They are completed using the Vintage Faceted Designer Button and Island Indigo Baker's Twine. The Butterfly is adorned with the Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
The back of the label cut out on the inside of the card uses Whisper White sponged with Island Indigo Ink and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. A Get Well Card - with the sentiment coming from our TAG IT Stamp Set.
