Stitched Be Mine dies

Color Fusers Blog Hop November 2019

Color Fusers Blog Hop with Everything Festive and the Brightly Gleaming product suite.



Welcome!  It's Color Fusers time!



Color Fusers November 2019 color challenge:  Cherry Cobbler, Pretty Peacock, and Copper



If you have been not here before, I'm glad you have joined us!  And if you are a seasoned Color Fusers veteran, welcome back!  



It's hard to believe Christmas is right around the corner.  In fact, only 49 days to go!  Time to start getting those holiday projects done! This month is a traditional holiday color combination with a little somethin' extra - copper!  The copper adds some elegance, and really helps pull today's project together.



There are many copper accents on this project!



I chose to use the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming designer paper with all things copper - copper metallic elements, copper stars, and copper trim.  And my favorite, a layer of copper foil paper to pull it all together!







To create this project:

  • cut a Cherry Cobbler card base 8 1/2" x 5 1/5", scored at 4 1/4"  
  • cut a copper foil layer 4" x 5" and die cut a decorative side edge
  • cut a piece of designer paper 4 7/8" x 3 5/8"
  • cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 3 7/8" x 1 3/4" for sentiment


I chose the Stitched Be Mine edge die to create a beautiful decorative edge on the copper foil layer, which is layered behind the designer paper and adhered to the card front.  Stamp sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Add copper elements and a copper trim bow, than layer onto card front with dimensionals.  Embellish with copper stars.

Color Fusers Blog Hop October 2019

The Stargazing stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual catalog paired with Black Foil sheets and Grapefruit Grove, Terracotta Tile, and Cajun Craze ink.


Welcome to another Color Fusers blog hop, I am glad you are joining us!


CF October 2019


This month's color challenge felt like fall to me, and includes Grapefruit Grove, Terracotta Tile, Cajun Craze, and Black.


I was very tempted to dive into a fall project.  But I resisted, and instead, I reached for a stamp set from the Annual catalog I had not yet used, called Stargazing.  The sentiments in it are just lovely! 



And as we move into the Thanksgiving season, I have so much to be thankful for!  This card will be perfect to share a note with my family, or a friend, to tell them how grateful I am to have them in my life! 



The Black foil sheets are so beautiful #147898.



I chose to bring the black in by using the beautiful Black foil sheets as a background layer.  And Shimmer Black embossing powder?  Yes, please!!  It is so hard to appreciate in the photo, but it is simply gorgeous in person.




The Shimmery Black embossing powder is a must have! #149512



To create this card:

  • cut a Terracotta Tile card base 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2"
  • cut a front layer of black foil 4" x 5" and die cut the scalloped side edge
  • cut a Whisper White top layer with the 3 3/8" x 4 7/8" stitched rectangle die



Stamp the swirl in Grapefruit Grove on the Whisper White layer.  Stamp off once before stamping to soften the color.  Add stars in Terracotta Tile and Cajun Craze ink.  Heat emboss the sentiment and some random stars in the background in Shimmer Black embossing powder.  Die cut the sentiment with the stitched square die before adding to the card front with dimensionals.  Finish it all off with a few punched black foil stars.


Stampin' Tip:  To create interest to your background, vary the intensity of your color.  This is especially effective on a background when repeatedly stamping the same, or multiple images.  An easy way to get this effect is to stamp your image on a piece of scrap paper before stamping your project.  


Thanks for stopping by today!
