January Stamp Club Cards

I've been wanting to try this dryer sheet technique for awhile, and I've seen a few done with the Lovely as a Tree (I think I may cry if they discontinue it!) set that look stunning, so here is my take on it. I am in love with the candy cane striped ribbon! I'm so sad that it won't be available after next week! I stamped the tree in Always Artichoke and Mellow Moss for the shadows, then covered the image with a dryer sheet, using glue stick, then sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds glitter over it. I love the shimmery look! I used Riding Hood Red to complement the ribbon and greens.

I also want to highlight the Valentine bundle this month, so I made the next two cards using the Love You Much stamp set. I saw this heart wreath on Jen's card, and I fell in love (and subsequently CASEd her card)! This is made using the new Heart to Heart punch and layering the hearts (Rose Red and Pretty in Pink). I added a little Pretties flower with a pink brad to the middle of the wreath. I layered that onto some Candy Lane designer series paper that I had wrapped with Rose Red ribbon. Then I made the little heart badge with markers and my 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches.

I CASEd the second Love You Much card from this card by Jaydee. I used the Big Shot Scallop Envelope with Real Red cardstock. It's pretty simple - tied with Whisper White taffeta ribbon and adhered to some Whisper White cardstock the I embellished with red eyelets. The sentiment is from Holidays & Wishes.

Thanks for reading!

Blessings to you,

Hi Shannon! I love your style of stamping, clean and simple! I've been trying to do more of that myself. So tired of the inked edges look.

Happy Stamping!
