Last Chance for Lovely Lily Pad

Today is the last chance for ordering the Coordination products and for earning FREE Sale-a-Bration items!

I finally pulled out the Shimmery White Embossing Paste and my Basic Pattern Decorative Masks and made the background I used on this card. It’s much more sparkly in person than I can photograph.

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the images with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. The lily is watercolored using Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick. The lily pad is watercolored using Call Me Clover. After watercoloring, I again used my Stamparatus to stamp the images using Versamark and embossed with white.

From My Heart Suite, Day 6

Welcome back to my From the Heart Suite series.  Today I have two containers, the first is based on a projectby Sam from MixedUpCraft and the second is the Mini Curvy keepsake box.  The bag is made from two 6″ x 6″ pieces of paper so the pattern direction can remain upright, you can’t really tell in these photos unless you look very closely at the inside.   You can also squeeze the sides of the bag together and fold it up.  So cute!

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Breathtaking Bouquet

Breathtaking Bouquet on Vellum

Can you tell that I love this stamp?  🙂  This time I white heat embossed on vellum and backed it with a piece from the See a Silhouette paper pack.  I wanted to use the Perennial Essence paper pack but apparently I don’t have it.  That is shocking to anyone that knows me well because I love Monet and it looks like Monet paintings.

I die cut the happy birthday three times, stacked them, and covered it with shimmery crystal effects to give it that shine.  I also used the Perennial Essence vellum embossed with the Scripty 3D folder and more polka dot tulle ribbon to back the sentiment so it didn’t get so lost in the background.

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Feels Like Frost , Wrapped in Plaid

Freshly Made Sketches #414

Since it’s December, I’m unlikely to post as consistently as I do the rest of the year but I’m planning to post a least once a week.  We will see how that goes since this post was supposed to go up yesterday and that didn’t happen.  🙂

I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches blog and on my first card I used the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper and then I noticed last night that it’s sold out.  😦  Fortunately, this paper is coming back in the 2020 Holiday Catalog.  🙂  But since it’s gone and you can’t get it, I also made a version using the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.

The Feels Like Frost paper is absolutely gorgeous on it’s own, and while I love the Wrapped in Plaid paper it did need something extra so I added gold glimmer sprigs using the Detailed Peacock dies.

Rustic Retreat Faux Metal Etching

I learned the faux metal etching technique from one of my favorites, Jennifer McGuire.  I thought this would be a great way to use the cabin on a card in a class that doesn’t require everyone to share the watercolor pencils or Stampin’ Blends.  I really like the look.

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Paper Pumpkin November 2019

Winter Gifts Paper Pumpkin

I love getting my Paper Pumpkin box every month, the latest was for tags.  I save most of my Christmas tags and reuse them each year so I don’t always have a use for them.  I decided to take these gorgeous tags and make some cards out of them.

To see the Paper Pumpkin kit, check out this YouTube video:

Here are the tags I made according to the directions:

Let It Snow…

…well, not really but I love this paper.

The Let it Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper is just so cute.  I love the little snowmen covered in glitter.  I had a really hard time trying to get that glitter and the glitter in the shimmery crystal effects to show up on camera.  The sentiment is double heat-embossed using white embossing powder and the Stamparatus.

Rustic Retreat Simple Masculine Card

I saw a card with this layout on The Joy of Sets Facebook Group and I thought I would make a card using it.  I can’t link to it but it was made by Mindy Karcher and sent to Sammi Little Offield and had an adorable little fox on it.

I thought I would use some of the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper and the Rustic Retreat stamp set.  I think both of them are great for making masculine cards.

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Free Skate, Feels Like Frost DSP

Feels Like Frost Corner Pop-up Card

If you remember, I did a corner pop-up gift card holder for my Still Scenes cards.  Well, I made another with the supplies I received from Susan Campfield because I demonstrated at Demos Galore.  Everything I needed to make another corner pop-up card was included and I even used the pieces that decorated the bag.  I need to start photographing items before I take them apart to make new items.

This time I made it so the front panel is still upright when the card is open.  I also put the gift card pocket on the side instead of the bottom so there is a place to write and I think it helps the card to fold easier.  (Thanks to Rachel Tessman for that inspiration.)
