Want an easy-to-make trestle? Here's a narrow one using the Chevron Punch. Trust God stamp set; Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and So Saffron; Chevron & Boho Blossoms punches, Fancy Fan EF, Deco Labels Collection Framelits, Little Leaves Sizzlets (retired), Dimensionals, and Basic Pearls. Notes: I took a white piece of 5-1/2 x 3, went up each long side with my Chevron punch, then cut each strip at 1-1/4 wide... bring together with opposite points... Wha-la!!!
Another manly card -- for the inside, I stamped off before stamping my image. Lovely As A Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes, and Hardwood stamp sets; Soft Sky, Very Vanilla, and Crumb Cake; Decorative Label Punch, Sponge, and Dimensionals. Notes: Crumb Cake piece is 4-1/4 x 2-3/4 and Very Vanilla is 4-1/4 x 2-1/2.
Don't forget about the Emboss Resist Technique. This card truly is quick and simple and very eloquent -- don't you think? A greeting of any sort can easily be added, but I chose to leave this blank for a simple note card. The front is embossed using a VersaMark pad with white embossing powder -- once your embossing is dry, sponge around and over your embossing, then take a Kleenix and wipe gently over the embossed area. But, I just used the VersaMark pad for the inside -- once it dries, it is like a watermark image, pulling from the color of the card stock. Inspiration was from a Card Buffet I attended this summer. Swallowtail stamp set; Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, and Basic Black; White Embossing Powder, VersaMark ink pad, corner rounder, and sponge. Notes: Black CS is 5-3/16 x 3-15/16 and White CS is 5 x 3-3/4.
June was my last event with Cottage Senior Circle members. But, have no fear... I am starting my own monthly Card Buffet in my own home starting this month... YAY!!! Check out my post on August 4th for more information and dates!
This is another card I did awhile back at a Card Buffet. So quick, easy, and eloquent! Love It! Don't forget the inside -- I stamped off my image of the Dahlias. Regarding Dahlias stamp set; Smokey Slate, Whisper White, and Strawberry Slush (I think... can't remember which color I used); Rhinestones. Notes: on front the Smokey Slate piece is 4-1/2 x 3-1/4 and White is 4-1/4 x 3.
Work of Art stamp set

When I first received my FREE! Work of Art stamp set at the St. Louis Catalog Premiere, my first thought was, "What in the world can I do with this." I usually have a hard time with the artsy stamp sets. But it wasn't long before other stampin' buddies had created AWESOME designs using this set! Work of Art stamp set; Real Red, Whisper White, and Night of Navy; and I used a retired heart punch, but now have the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack which is new to our 2014-2015 big catalog. Here are some more ideas using the Work of Art set from my stampin' friends. Click on picture to enlarge.
This card was CASED from a friend's card to me. Isn't it lovely? Too Kind stamp set; Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Pear Pizzazz, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette; 1/4 Cotton Pear Pizzazz Ribbon, Basic Pearls. Quick and easy and eloquent! Notes: Very Vanilla piece is 3-1/2 x 2-1/2 and Rose Red piece is 4-1/4 x 2-3/4.
It seems that a lot of my stampers are always requesting manly cards. How 'bout this one!?! I CASED this one from a Card Buffet I attended awhile back. LOVE It! Handcarved and Wetlands stamp sets; Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, and Crumb Cake; Designer Very Vintage Buttons, Linen Thread, and Banners Framelits. Notes: I stamped my background on a 5-1/4 x 3-3/4 piece of Soft Suede CS with Soft Suede ink, then cut in half at 1-7/8, then used each piece on my gate card base front -- 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, scored at 2-1/8 at each end; I used the smallest two banners from the framelits; an easy way to thread a button... use a dental floss threader (from your local drug store) -- works so smoothly, without that thready taste in your mouth!
