Don’t forget to look to your catalogues for inspiration. There are some beautiful cards, showcasing all of the stamp sets, and this is one of them (page 93, Annual Catalogue 2019-20)
Card Base – Basic grey 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, score at 4 1/4
Whisper white 4 x 5 1/4 (2) plus some scrap pieces
Coastal Cabana – 1 3/4 x 3 (2)
Gold Foil 2 1/2 x 1 1/2
I did use the Coastal Cabana/Granny apple green reversible ribbon, as an accent, as my order with the Scalloped Linen Ribbon hasn’t arrived yet
It’s never too early to start preparing your Christmas cards. I recently got the new Scripty 3D embossing folder, and while it’s not “Christmassy”, it fit the bill perfectly.
I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla using the new embossing folder, then scraped the Versamark ink pad roughly here and there, over the raised words – sprinkled the Copper embossing powder lightly over the card stock and heat embossed, to create this unique matte for my card.
I also heat embossed, in copper, the larger of the deer in the Dashing Deer stamp set, and layered over the copper foil sheets. I used the 1/4″ copper trim, instead of ribbon, to complete the metallic look.
I used Crumb Cake ink for the sentiment on the inside of the card.
Very Vanilla – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, score at 4 1/4, 5 1/4 x 4 (2), 2 1/4 x 3 1/2
Copper Foil – 2 1/2 x 3 3/4
Pretty Kitty has to be one of my all time favourite stamp sets. I saw this card on Pinterest, posted by Wanda of Starlight Stamper.com. It was so stinkin’ cute, I had to do it as well. I realize that the stamp set is retired but I couldn’t help myself.
The card base is Basic Black – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2. You will also need 2 each of 3 3/8 x 1 1/4 and 2 1/8 x 3 1/8
Pool Party Matte 4 x 5 1/4
Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 (inside), and two pieces 2 x 3″ each.
DSP – 2 pcs 3 1/4 x 1 1/8″
I used the Layering ovals to cut the sentiment layers

I used Balmy blue ink in the High Seas Embossing folder, then ran the Whisper white card stock through the Big Shot, to get the background. Stamped the Light house in Night of Navy and used the dies from the Sailing Home Bundle to cut out the lighthouse. Night of Navy ink on Crumb Cake completed the Sentiment and a little Night of Navy and Sahara Sand twine, knotted at the bottom .
I love the simplicity of this card. Just a couple of layers and some clear embossing, absolutely make it shine (no pun intended) lol.
I ran a matte of Crumb Cake through the “Subtle” embossing folder, for some texture, and created a soft background of Soft Seafoam ink on Soft Seafoam paper. A backdrop of a pearlized doily and a stitched circle of Pear Pizzaz complete the background. I stamped the vase, tone on tone with Balmy Blue ink on Balmy Blue paper, then gave it a shine with clear embossing powder, as well as the orchid and leaves. I did all the other stamping with Crumb Cake ink. The vase and leaves are punched with the vase builder punch and the orchid and shelf are fussy cut.
