Twinkle (S1510) October Stamp of the Month

Is it ever too early to start on Christmas cards? No way, and that is why I am so excited about this month's Stamp of the Month!

Several great sentiments you can use on cards, layouts, or even a Picture My Life card. The images include an ornament, lights with twinkly stars, and a frame of stars. Three images (see the red outline) coordinate with the Artiste Cricut cartridge.

I will be sharing more artwork featuring the Twinkle Stamp of the Month.

The first piece of artwork uses the new Eggplant (Enchanted color group) color. The three levels of matting include:

Eggplant - 4" x 5 1/4"
Cocoa - 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
Purple Glitter paper - 3 7/5" x 5"
Colonial White - 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"

Placed on a Colonial White card base.

I stamped one end of the squiggle line three times at three levels along the top left side leaving room for the three ornaments to overlap but still show through.

I stamped the sentiement 'Joy' in the bottom right corner of the Colonial White piece.

Using 3D Foam Tape, two of the ornaments, the ones on each side are popped up with the middle ornament attached directly to the sentiment piece.

Put the pieces together and I added some retired cocoa ribbon (this month the Use Your Stash theme is ribbon, so I will be sharing ways to use ribbon) to the tops of the ornaments.

And, of course, you have to remember the inside of the card.

I used the twinkly stars to randomly stamp around the sentiment.

And you may want to remember to stamp on the envelope that is where I am off to.

Please enjoy this card and share your thoughts in a comment.

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 



The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
