Amazing

I have a card to share today that is pretty much  an “any occasion” type card.   It was really quick and easy to make.  And it is almost a one stamp set card.  At the last minute I decided to use a background stamp instead fo leaving the card base plain.  Either would work wonderfully.

 

Stampin' Up!, Incredible Like You, Amazing Life, Jackie Beers, Crackle Paint

Incredible Like You, 148708

 

I love the sentiment, “You Are amazing”.  Anyone would love to receive a card with that as the sentiment. I know I would.  It may not show well in the photo, but the ends of the sentiment are torn instead of cut.  It looks very nice in person but may not show well in the photo.  I have been into “tearing” this week.  Remember my card from Tuesday?  LOL!

Other than the sentiment, the stamps are all from the Incredible Like You stamp set.  I have a tip for you in stamping the flower.  Normally I stamp the solid image first and then the definition image second.  With the photopolymer stamps lining these two step images up is a piece of cake.  Until I tried this very light color of Blushing Bride!!  I could not really see the solid stamped image.  So I tried it in reverse and stamped the dark definition stamp first.  That worked amazingly!  All I had to do was line up the bottom of the stamp and it was perfect.  Please keep that little tip in your tool bag when using a very light color.

I found another unexpected result with the Granny Apple Green stamping.  I stamped the stripes in Granny Apple Green and looked for a different green for the leaves I wanted to add to the flowers.  None seemed to work without really standing out.  So I tried the Granny Apple again and stamped off once .  It was perfect.  Well, actually it would have been perfect had I stamped the leaves full strength and the stripes lighter I think.  Regardless, I was pleased with the result.  It is the exact tone of color and shows up surprisingly well without contrasting with the stripes.  Who Knew???

The background is made using the Crackle Paint background stamp.  I love the look this gives.  Background Stamps are so unique and give such different looks depending on the ink you use.  I love using the same Ink as Card stock, like I did today.  But I also like just using Versamark to do a light image.  Although Versamark leaves a darker image on very light card stock.  Another of those anomolies!

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back on Monday for another project.

Easter Greetings

This adorable bunny brings a smile to my face every time I look at it.  The artists at Stampin’ Up! were perfect on drawing this little guy.  I thought of him on an Easter card from the beginning.  I have that card to share with you today.  However by changing the sentiment, this would be a really cute baby card or just a Spring card.

 

Fable Friends, 148670

 

I think the Basket Weave Embossing Folder is a perfect pairing with the cute rabbit for Easter.  I was sort of surprised as  I was putting the card together that I had chosen all the pieces with texture to them.  My subconscious is better than I am!

I used a variety of products on this card and they are all listed at the bottom of the page.  The only thing to make note of is that I added the pearl on top of the little Frosted Flower Embellishment.  I believe I copied Julie DiMatteo on that.  I love it.  Then I noticed in my photo that it seems to have moved over just a tad.  I did not have time to retake the picture.  Oops!

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another project before the weekend begins.

A Little Note for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around GREEN. We are excited to share our creations with you today.  There’s a wonderful variety of styles and occasions celebrated in this hop! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

For my take on our Hop Theme, I took the name seriously!!!  I went with GREEN, GREEN, and more GREEN.  It is nice to get outside of your normal comfort zone.  I hope you like it.

 

Butterfly Bounty Thinlits, 148536

 

I used three shades of green for this project.  The base is Mossy Meadow, the background layer is Pear Pizzaz and the top layer of the butterflies is Soft Sea Foam.  The designer series paper is the Floral Romance DSP.  It contains both the Mossy Meadow and the Pear Pizzaz.  So instead of trying to decide which piece to use, I opted for both of them.

Of course the star of the show is the Butterfly Bounty Thinlits.  They are fabulous.  There are 20 dies in the set!  The large one I used is actually two.  They could be used individually or layered on top of one another like I did here.  An almost “must have” is the Multi-purpose adhesive sheets to easily adhere these two pieces together, and add it to the card as well.  It makes life much less frustrating!!

The die is actually two butterflies larger than the three that are attached together.  The one on the bottom and one extra were attached also.  I decided it was too large and cut the two off.  Then I decided I needed the smaller of the two to hold my little sentiment banner.

The sentiment is from the second butterfly bundle in the Occasions catalog, Butterfly Gala.  It is punched out with the Classic Label Punch.  Of course I needed to add just a touch of bling to my card.  Butterflies are so elegant that I knew pearls were the proper accessory for these beauties !

I have included all of the products I used at the bottom of the post.

Beautiful

Today’s card is showcasing the gorgeous Painted Season stamp set.  If you do not have this set, I strongly suggest you think about it quickly.  It goes away at the end of the month.  I apologize that the photos do not do the definition on the stamps justice.  It is one of the prettiest flowers that is in the Stampin’ Up! products right now.

 

Painted Season 149722

 

As I said above, the photo is not quite clear enough to see the great detail on the flower.  So you will have to trust me.  The other stamps are just as defined.  The leaves I stamped here are in Soft Sea Foam, so they really do not show up well in the photo.  Sorry about that.

This card is done with a technique I have not used in many years.  It goes back to my beginning in stamping and is tearing the paper.  Did you ever make cards with that touch added to them?  For this one I tore a piece of copy paper to lay across the Whisper White piece.  I then stamped the images over the paper.  After I removed the torn piece, I came back and stamped the sentiment and little leaves on each end of it.

The sentiment is from Flowering Desert and just seemed to strike me as perfect.  I thought of these flowers as beautiful from the first one I stamped.  So of course when I saw the sentiment, I knew it was the one to use.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back tomorrow as it is an InKing Royalty Blog Hop!  I know you will not want to miss the great projects that will be showcased by all my fellow team members.  And as always, the complete product list is at the bottom of the page.

Saint Patrick’s Day Treat

I know Saint Patrick’s Day was yesterday!   I could not show this little treat ahead of time because it was a treat for my Stamp Club ladies and we meet on Sunday.   Even though it isn’t much , I wanted them to see it in person first.

This is a super quick and easy treat holder and could easily be made to match any occasion.

Itty Bitty Greetings, 146667

 

It really needed green wrapped candy, but I like using the DSP to cover regular candy that you may already have on hand.  I swiped these from my husband’s candy stash!  Ssshhhh!!!

The designer series paper is the Happiness Blooms and the green enamel dot is also from the Happiness Blooms Suite of products.  The Scallop Tag Topper Punch, the Scallop Circle punch, and the circle punches are all my “Go To” punches for adding just a bit of extra to a card.  I would not know what to do without these workhorse punches.  I highly recommend having them in your supplies.

The holder itself is 1 1/2 X 6.  I punched each end with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  I then scored at   3 5/8,  4, , 5 1/8.  Using the Bone Folder, I burnished each fold.  Then I folded the 5 1/8 score in the opposite direction and burnished again.  I placed the DSP piece on the front of the short section, and wrapped the candy bar with the same DSP.  The front piece measures 1 3/8 X 1, and the candy wrap is 3 X 2 1/2.  I used two glue dots to hold the candy in place, then folded the bottom section up over it.  I threaded the Whisper White 1/8″ ribbon behind the holder and up through the front hole.  Then I just tied a regular bow.  Other than adding the sentiment, that is it.  Easy as can be.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will have a regular card project for you tomorrow.  All of the supplies I used today are listed at the bottom of the page.

Nine Lives

On Tuesday I shared a card using the Happy Tails stamp set.  So to give equal time to my kitties, I have one today using the Nine Lives stamp set.  As with the Happy Tails, the sentiments are so perfect that I hope these two sets are around for quite some time.

 

Nine Lives, 148703

 

I would not normally pair the cat with this designer series paper.  As I was looking for a background or a DSP to go with the cat, I saw this piece with the Balmy Blue and Sahara Sand.  I have used this piece previously and it is so soft, elegant, romantic…just pick one.  So I thought I would give it a try.

The heart is from the Be Mine Framelits, and is the reverse side of the large DSP piece.  There are so many items from the Occasions catalog that I hope will carry over to the next Annual Catalog.  We will know before too long!!!  I get so excited about the thought of new products, and then sad at the thought of losing some I love.

Thank you for visiting today.  I have listed all of the products I used at the bottom of the post.  I hope you have an enjoyable weekend.  Please come back on Monday.

All Adorned

I have a quick little 4 X 4 card today to share with you.  I cannot believe Sale-A-Bration is almost over.  It has exceeded sales goals for Stampin’ Up!, and unfortunately resulted in quiet a few sets selling out.  I hate that, but then I thought of a lot of new companies, even QVC, where items are a limited number.  With these , if you want it get it, because it may/will be gone soon.  That has definitely been the case this year with SAB.

Stampin’ Up! has come out with additional sets to cover the empty slots and the one I am sharing today is one of those sets.  At first glance the All Adorned sets looks very plain.  The magic appears once you ink it up and find all of the possibilities.  Today’s card was quick and easy to line up.

 

All Adorned, 149728

 

I began stamping with the corners and did not even use the Stamparatus!  It was so easy to do that I did not think about it until I was almost finished.  I love photopolymer stamps for this reason.  You can see pretty much exactly where you need to stamp.  I began with the 3 7/8 width and stamped the pieces to touch each other and then went back to trim the bottom.  I did not have a plan when I started.  That happens quite often lately!

The sentiment is part of the stamp set and it what originally drew me to the set.  I think that is a great statement for so many purposes.   I punched it with the Everyday Label Punch and then used my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker to go around the edge to give it some color.  I think this is a great way to differentiate when you have white on white.

Thank you very much for Hopping with me yesterday!  I hope you liked the Easter card.  And I really appreciate you coming back today.  I know my posts are not going to my Facebook Blue Line page for some reason.  I am working on that.

As I mentioned that Sale-A-Bration is ending, so is the opportunity to get the awesome carry tote in the Join Promotion.  Please consider joining my team.  I would love to have you and I think you would like the sharing of ideas.  The Starter Kit is the Ultimate Shopping Bundle!  There is no pressure to ever place another order.  It is a great way to test the waters and see if you like it.  And get a lot of great products at the same time!

His Grace for Pals March Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ March Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because ”Spring has Sprung” – at least on our blog hop if not outside! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

In looking for a stamp set to meet the Spring theme, I kept coming back to the set His Grace.  I love the flowers, that was what drew me to the set when I first saw it.  So I went with my instinct and made a very soft Easter card.  You can’t get more Spring than this.

 

His Grace, 148676

 

This is a really easy card to replicate as there is not a lot of stamping.  The floral is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  The Tufted layer is just a soft touch I chose instead of using DSP which my detract from the floral.

The die cut circle is from Wonderful Floral Framelits.  It is a simple WOW that I love!  The different look it gives to a simple circle (or it has a touch of an oval maybe?) is a nice change.  I popped it up with some dimensional and added a single pearl for some bling.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 10, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Families First” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Thank you for visiting my page today!  I hope you will come back soon.  I have listed all of the products I used at the bottom of the post.  Now, on to the next blog in the list….Enjoy!!

Happy Tails

I hope that you will see the humor in today’s card.  If you have followed me for very long, you will know that I love animals.  When I first saw the new dog and cat stamp sets (Happy Tails and Nine Lives) in the Occasions Catalog, there was never a question of would I purchase them.  I got them as quickly as I could.  I love the stamps, but the sentiments are fabulous as well.

My favorite sentiment is the paw print, and next is “Keep Calm and Wag On” .  We have had several dogs over the years and the last two were Labs.  And they wag ALL The Time!!!  So that was my beginning to this card.

 

Happy Tails Bundle, 150631

 

I really hope the tails look like they are wagging!!!  At least that is my intention.  Sometimes my vision doesn’t always work for others.

To make my wagging tail, I stamped and punched out the puppy.  I then stamped two more tails on scrap paper and fussy cut them.  I used glue dots to place them and then layered the puppy over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This one made me smile and I hope it did you as well.  I have listed all of the supplies at the bottom of the post.  Please consider the join promotion going on now.  The “JOIN” is really just a giant bundle you purchase.  There is NO requirements or pushing for you to ever place another order.  If you love Stampin’ Up! products as I do, I hope you will give me a call and let’s talk about the options.

Birthday Cheer

Today’s card is a little variation of a simple card I have done several times.  For this one I added some more layers to better match the beautiful designer series paper.

 

Birthday Cheer, 148604

 

Do you recognize the folded back corner from previous cards?  It is a super easy, but cute card to make.  Because of the blues and tan in the DSP, I decided to do more layers.  It is not exactly as I envisioned, but I am happy with the results.

I used the Butterfly Duet Punch to punch the cupcake butterfly from another piece of this gorgeous DSP.  Unfortunately it sold out almost immediately, but the wonderful news is that it is going to carry over to the Annual Catalog.  So it will be back available in June.  WooHoo!!!  I adore punches.

Thank you for visiting today.  I have been slacking lately on my posts but will be back to normal this week.  Sometimes life just gets a bit hectic!  I have included all of the products at the bottom of the post.

Remember that Sale-A-Bration is winding down.  It ends on March 31.  And the join promotion where you can get the Fabulous Carry Tote Bag will end then as well.  I truly do love that tote.  If you have been considering joining Stampin’ Up!, I would love to talk with you about it.  It was one of the best decisions I ever made.
