#stampinup #creationstation It's the first Sunday of the month and you know what that means, right?! It's time for another Creation Station blog hop. This time we're featuring products from the NEW Stampin' Up catalog!! Woot! I'm so excited to share some great stamp sets and colors with you. I can't wait to see what the others on our design team have come up with. Let's get started!!
My first card uses the "Moroccan Nights" stamp set. I love the textures in this set and I know I'm going to use the large medallion stamp a lot! I started by stamping the medallion in Dapper Denim on the corner of a Very Vanilla panel. Then I stamped the row of rosettes across the top, also in Dapper Denim.
Next, I stamped the lantern in Versamark and heat embossed it with the awesome new Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder. That stuff is spectacular! I stamped a sentiment from the "Thoughtful Banners" set in Versamark and heat embossed that in copper as well.
I tied a length of Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon across the top, making the knot right above the lantern so that it looks like it's hanging from the ribbon. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Dapper Denim mat and then onto a Cajun Craze card base to complete the card.
Here's a closer look at the lantern so you can see just how spectacular that Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder is!!
For my next card, I used the totes adorable host set, "Pun Intended." I'm in LOVE with this set (maybe because I'm just a little bit snarky)! I stamped the camera image in Memento Tuxedo Black at the corner of a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the "snappy birthday" sentiment and dotted line in the yummy new Sweet Sugarplum ink.
I cut a 1.5" wide strip of a sheet from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack and adhered it to a slightly wider strip of Basic Black Card Stock. I tied a length of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon around this piece before adhering it to the Very Vanilla Panel. I adhered this panel onto a Basic Black mat and then onto a Sweet Sugarplum card base.
I wasn't completely happy with the card and then I struck on an idea: I stamped the camera again onto a scrap of Very Vanilla and fussy cut it. I added a little piece of the Playful Palette DSP to the flash bar. I adhered this to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Sometimes just a little bit of texture or dimension takes a card from nice....to WOW!
I hope you enjoyed my projects. Keep hopping around the Creation Station blogs for more inspiration from our fabulous design team. Use the "back" and "next" buttons to navigate all the way around. See you next time!!

Nice cards. Love the card design sketch for the "snappy" card. I love those Pun Fun sayings, too. I like the ribbon anchoring the lantern. And, I am crazy about copper embossing powder! Great cards.ReplyDelete
Great cards Kathy! Your lantern hanging from the ribbon is super smart :0)ReplyDelete
