Christmas Snowflake

 

Welcome to this week's LIMES inspiration post!

I chose this card as my inspiration from the gallery of this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper!

LIST: Colours (teal, red, white), Techniques (stamping, die cutting), Elements (envelope with flap, red scalloped circle, layered snowflakes, sentiment on label die cut, pearl embellishment))

INCLUDE: teal, red, white, layered snowflake

MODIFY: stenciled, embossed background, no scallops on red circle, created flap-look with extra inkblending on my background

EXCLUDE: sentiment

SPIN: square card, gem, spritz and splattered


This colour combination is one of my favourites for Christmas, and I also have a weakness for snowflake dies. 

I stenciled a square of cardstock, then blended over the whole thing for a tone on tone look. Then I masked off a triangle and added another layer of ink to create my faux flap.

I blended red ink onto a white cardstock circle, and then put the two layers through my die cutting machine with a 3D embossing folder to add some texture. I spritzed the panels with shimmer spray and splattered with some silver watercolour. 

I added dimension to my layered snowflake by die cutting small circles and layering them up between the two snowflakes.

Flower Thanks



Welcome to this week's LIMES inspiration post!

I chose this card as my inspiration from the gallery of this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper!


LIST: Colours (rainbow, white, pink, purple), Techniques (stamping), Elements (patterned paper, big floral, horizontal 'ribbon', rectangle sentiment with mats and brads, horizontal layout)

INCLUDE: pink, puple, yellow, white, big floral, horizontal ‘ribbon’

MODIFY: stenciled dotted background and stencilled flower, die cut sentiment

EXCLUDE: stamping, brads

SPIN: square card

Last weekend, I met Effie (owner of The Ton Stamps) in Virginia - so fun! I bought this pretty Calming Cosmos 1 layering stencil and played with it this week. I also pulled out an unused stencil from Simon Hurley to create my polka-dot background. I finished with a gold die cut sentiment.

Stamp and Spin Tool

 


There's a new tool in town! You know I love to spin, and this addition to the Sizzix Stencil and Stamp tool  is so fun! I'll have a full video next week showing more details but right now, here's what you need to know:

  • stamp positioner (think MISTI) and spinner (think Stamp Wheel) in ONE!
  • you need the Stencil and Stamp tool for the Stamp and Spin accessory to work.
  • similar 'door' design for stamp positioning to MISTI (not flip over like Stamp Wheel)
  • if you have a Stamp Wheel already, you don't need this tool to spin
  • 8 'clickable' positions vs Stamp Wheel's 16
  • tool is larger than an original-sized MISTI - takes up more space, but allows for larger designs


I made this card with 2 stamps (well, 3 if you count the sentiment).

Love Drama


 Welcome to this week's LIMES inspiration post!

I chose this card as my inspiration from the gallery of this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper!

LIST: Colours (black & white), Techniques (die cutting, stamping) Elements negative heart with diagonal strips of patterned paper, embossed dots, black ribbon and bow, stamped sentiment

INCLUDE: black, white, die cutting, stamping, 

MODIFY: die cut 'scribble heart' - scribbles are like diagonal strips, gold splatter instead of embossed dots, die cut sentiment on the heart

EXCLUDE: ribbon, bow

SPIN: square card


I don't often make cards in just black and white, but this inspiration really caught my eye. I pulled out an unused heart die and embraced the graphic look of it. I stacked up 3 instead of having a negative die cut, and I splattered gold watercolour on the top layer. I added a simple love die cut sentiment, along with a tiny stamped 'you'.
