VC Rocks Blog Hop #4

Welcome to Stamping Fun with Kim...your next stop in the VC Rocks blog hop. You most likely must have joined me from Mary's blog. If you are joining part-way thru the hop or get lost, just go to the starting point which is the VCRocks home page.

This month is our last bloghop!! :-( VC Rocks will shutting down for the year at the end of the month. It's been a great summer!!!

This month's I have been busy with swaps and classes that I'm keeping this month's project simple. I'm getting ready for a Christmas card class at the end of the month. Here are two of the cards we will be doing.

Supplies Needed:
Stamp Set: All Holidays, Baroque Motifs
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, River Rock, Whisper White
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, River Rock

This is a really simple card but I love the look of it!

1. Randomly stamp the motif with River Rock onto the Whisper White. Do the same with the flower using Cherry Cobbler.
2. Attach the Whisper White piece onto the Cherry Cobbler (5 1/2 x 4 1/4).
3. I stamped the square piece with Cherry Cobbler and attached it to the River Rock piece.
4. I attached the Cherry Cobbler square offset then attached the River Rock piece.

Very simple!!!

My second card is just as easy but requires a little punching and cutting.

Supplies Needed:
Stamp Set: Seasons of Joy
Cardstock: Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: 1" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Silver Brads, Dimensionals, 5/8" Wide Rich Razzleberry Grosgrain Ribbon

1. Stamp the motif with Razzleberry on to the Razzleberry card base (5 1/2 x 4 1/4).
2. Stamp the greeting using Old Olive on to a scrap piece of Whisper White. I cut out the "&" symbol and the christmas tree.
3. I then punch out the snowflake using the 1" circle punch and one of the flowers with the 1/2" circle punch. I added a brad to the center of the snowflake.
4. Stamp the greeting again with Razzleberry on to Whisper White piece. I then added all the Olive pieces to this with dimensionals.
5. Using the ticket corner punch, punch the corners and then attach piece to the old olive piece.
5. Attach ribbon and then attach stamped image with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed the projects! I apologize for the fuzzy pictures. This is what you get when you take pictures using your phone camera.

For more fun stuff, continue to the next stop of the blog hop by visiting Diana's blog.

Happy stamping!!!

I like how you used Baroque Motifs on the first card. I finally broke down and bought that set. Will have to CASE now. TFS!


Deborah said...

Love the Razzleberry for Christmas cards. I really like the second card because it looks great and it is a set I have and I need the help with ideas for it.

Veronica said...

I would never have thought to use Baroque Motifs for a Christmas card. Love your creativity and the colors you chose.

Lori said...

Both make nice Christmas cards. Love the color combos on both. :)

Tory said...

I love that both of your cards have something non-traditional about them. One is the color and the other is the stamp set. Great "outside the box" thinking!

Carolyn Sharkas said...

Love the colors - I need to order more Rich Razzleberry c/s soon - I keep going for it. I love simple cards - they are quick to make and are easy to embellish!! Thanx for sharing - and another push toward getting my Christmas cards done.

Terri said...

Very nice Christmas set Kim!

ooooo, nice cards, Kim! I especially like the Baroque Motifs card--you could do that one in all sorts of Christmas color combinations!

Both are very cute. It is a shame to think about Christmas already but if we are going to get our projects done in time, we need to start now!
Thanks for sharing
