When Gorgeous Grunge first came out, it looked like road kill to me. I saw a card using it with Real Red and it was not pretty. Then I decided to get out of comfort level and purchased it. Now I love it (although I still will not use it with Red). It is great set just to add some color to the background of your card. Washi Tape is another way to add color and the two of them just go well together. This set of Washi Tape uses the 2015/2016 In Colors. I am really going to miss these colors when they retire next spring. Of course, I think I say that with every set of In Colors!
Once again I made this card using a card sketch I found online. A card sketch is where someone designs a layout of a card and you make it using your supplies. I really need to start keeping track of what the layout looks like so I can show it to you, but once again I forgot to bookmark it so I could find it again.
This card using the stamp set from the Holiday Catalog called Merry Everything. It has a matching punch called Note Tag and you can save 15% by buying the bundle. The Designer Series Paper is also from the Holiday Catalog and is called All Is Calm. It uses beautiful soft colors like Smoky Slate, Lost Lagoon and Pear Pizzazz.
This is one of the cards we made at our monthly club meeting. It uses a Photopolymer Stamp Set from the Holiday Catalog. It is called Festival Of Trees. This set has a matching punch called Tree Punch and you can save 15% by purchasing both in a bundle. The other stamp set we used is also from the Holiday Catalog and is called Merry Everything. This set also has a matching punch called Note Tag and once again, you can save 15% by purchasing both! The stars down the center of the card uses a new border punch called Confetti Star. I used one of the stars that were cut out by this punch for the star on top of the tree.
We made this cute little box at our Monthly Club meeting. It uses the new Gift Box Punch Board which makes a ton of different sized boxes. I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for little boxes to wrap gifts in, especially around Christmas time. This new Punch Board is perfect for that. It makes all different sized boxes and is really easy to do. We also used a new stamp set from the Holiday Catalog called Merry everything. It has a matching punch (Note Tag Punch) which always makes things easier! You can buy both in a bundle and save 15%!!
Here is a video showing how to use the Gift Box Punch Board.
Last month was my birthday and Rob gave me a Silhouette Electronic Cutter as a present. Of course, I picked it out. Oh, and I ordered it too but still, it was my gift from him and it was a perfect choice! I am sure all you ladies know what I am talking about.
In any case, Stampin’ Up! has some great Digital Downloads that can be used in a an e-cutter. This one is called Cool Like That and is on page 10 of the Annual Catalog. You just download the file and import them into your Silhouette library and the machine does the rest! They are awesome little boxes and bags and only took a couple of minutes to do. The longest part was the Cameo actually cutting them out.
