Card Design Just Right vs Too Much

You may have seen the first card before.  Let me tell you about it.  I love our Be Merry Designer Series Paper.  There are so many cute designs and great background patterns.  

The Merry Cafe stamps make such fun cups - everyone loves a hot beverage on a cold day!  The Holly embossing folder adds rich texture and detail to emphasize the cup.


I wanted to share how the card above displays the "less is more" philosophy.  Which is why I am posting about it again for this lesson.  One row of Designer Series Paper and ribbon was perfect but two of each was utter busy-ness.  Can you tell the difference?  Oh my, go ahead and laugh!

I also want to tell you that our Online Extravaganza is coming on Monday!!!  I can't wait to share all the details.

Christmas at Stamp Club #1

My stamp club had so much fun making Christmas cards in October. Stampin' Up! shared this design for demonstrator classes.   I loved it!

This is our "Christmas Pines" stamp set in the Annual Catalog.  It also has the coordinating Pretty Pines Thinlit Dies.  You would love to make this card, it is quick and easy, and has a rich WOW effect with that sparkly red glimmer paper.  The supplies for this card are at the end of this post.

OnStage - Petal Passion Sneak Peek

The Occasions catalog has several beautiful suites but my heart was captured by the Petal Passion suite.  This display board is so inspiring! 

The top half of the display board was designed by Bonnie O'Neill.  The lower half was designed by Sherry Roth.

The suite has Petal Pair, two embossing folders, with intricate details.
The ribbon is my favorite it is a narrow 1/4 inch organza with satin edges.  It can be colored to complement any project and is super easy to use and tie!
The embellishments have two shapes: a leaf, and a flower with a pearl center.
The Petal Passion Memories & More card pack is black and white with some petal pink accents on some cards.
The Petal Palette stamp set includes sentiments and images.  The coordinating Petals and More thinlits dies is available on its' own or bundled for a 10% discount.
The show stopper of this suite is the black and white Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.  See below for several coloring ideas.

Sherry Roth made samples to show the ombre effect and how to create a color wash.

Stamping in a color on the DSP creates a fresh, unique look.
Here are project samples with those techniques.
More design samples by Sherry.
These samples are by Bonnie O'Neill.
I love the eclipse card with the stamp set.
More samples from Bonnie.
This is such a pretty framed art project using all of the Petal Passion suite products!

I hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek from OnStage.  It is so wonderful to see products in person and grasp how much more can be done with them!
