Picture Perfect in Purple

Stampin' Royalty has a Picture Inspiration this week!
My sample card is above, the inspiration below :o)

I was really drawn to the tablecloth in the image. the whole table setting is really striking and i wanted to re-create the feel of it on a card. I was originally trying to come up with a unique Wisteria Wonder Christmas card, but ended up going for Birthday instead...

The flowers in the background are stamped in White Craft Ink, and the Dots along the bottom are stamped in Basic Gray. The rest speaks for itself!

Whimsical Winter

Things are getting colorful at Stampin' Royalty this week! 

It's a Color Challenge!
It took me a while to finally come up with a final design for this card, but i love the way it turned out and it's basic simplicity. I think i am going to make many more of these!

Besides the handmade holly leaves and the striped tree, the rest explains itself, i believe..
For the tree, i just glued on very thin strips of Real Red to the White punched tree and trimmed the edges.  I used a circle punch to make the holly leaves.  you just punch around, kind of overlapping, until you get the holly leaf shape.

We are being Thankful at Stampin' Royalty this week!

I used the Seasonally Scattered stamp and my markers to make the main image. The nice thing about the large image stamps, is that it basically fills the card for you! just add a little element here and there and your design basically makes itself! 

I used my Silhouette e-cutter to make the leaves, and i used Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, and the retired More Mustard.  The background paper is (retired) Really Rust. I have been seeing how i can incorporate my old supplies in with my new so that i can put them to good use, and so it will give me an excuse to get some more NEW goodies!


cardstock - Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Always Artichoke
Stamps - Seasonally Scattered
Accessories - misc. Stampin' Write markers, Gold Ribbon, (retired) Really Rust patterned paper

Silver Linings

This weeks theme at Stampin' Royalty is to use SILVER in your project! 
So i did just that!  I made a whole Christmas Card box all by my little self! 

Here is another view:

For this one, i started with a Whisper White 8 1/2 x 11 and stamped the whole thing with my snowflakes in Pear Pizzazz and Lost Lagoon. I then created the box with that sheet of cardstock and a plain white for the bottom.
I created the main panel separately so that i could wrap the ribbon around it. After cutting, embossing and paper piercing the different elements, i stuck them all on there, and finished if off with a 3-D tree made with 6 of the tree punches, then folded in half, then glued together to create a fan style tree. I wrapped silver ribbon around it to represent garland (so cute!) and stuck in on the main panel. Every tree has to have a topper, so i added a Silver Glimmer star and my favorite little button!   A few Silver Dazzling Details dots (say that 10 times fast!) and my Christmas Card Box is ready to be filled with coordinating cards! and there's plenty of room for envelopes, a pen, maybe some stamps? :)
I must say i am pleased with the outcome!
