Hello There

This card is one I made to finish off the Royal Challenge I have mentioned previously.  It was a Welcome Home for Brian King, my SU Upline,  from the SU Incentive trip.  I did not find a Welcome that I loved , so I went with Hello There!

 

What better stamp set to use for someone as “crafty” as Brian, than the It Starts With Art set.  I used the gorgeous Designer Series Paper from the suite of products as my bright background.  My sign is from the stamp set I Say Hello.  It is a really cute set that I believe is somewhat of a sleeper set.

I hung the sign using one of the Mini Library Clips.  the sequins scattered around were just enough bling to give some extra to the card.  I love not always laying everything out evenly, so this haphazard layout is a nice change.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop!

Donut Birthday

One of my most favorite foods is Donuts.  Krispy Kreme Glazed Donuts especially! So of course when I saw the stamp set Birthday Goodness I knew I had to have it.  Who would not like a donut birthday card?

 

I did not do my normal “bling” for added on the card.  I liked the donuts and the bit of DSP to do the shine.

I stamped the donuts in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  I added the strip of Designer Series Paper from the 2019-2021 In Color DSP.  The top layer is raised just for a bit of definition.

I hope you liked the donuts and will give this stamp set a look.  It is becoming one of my favorites.

A Little Rain

I was so happy when Fable Friends carried over to the new Annual Catalog.  It reminds me of the childrens fairy tales of my youth.  Another of our Facebook challenges last week was simple an Animal.  I debated for just a minute and then went with the Goose from Fable Friends.

 

 

I paired a couple of stamp sets to make this card.  I love that the Goose is wearing a raincoat, so that was my starting point.  I wanted to give her a bright and cheery coat to wear in the rain.

I paired High Tide to get the puddled water and the grass.  The rain came from Birthday Backgrounds, and the sentiment from Love What You Do.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Framelits for the sign.  This is the trick again of cutting it out with the die leaving the excess length towards one end.   Then re-inserting it to the point you need for the proper length.  The stitching makes this so easy to do, as you simply press the stitches back onto the die.  That way you know it is lined up properly.

Enjoy Life

I have really enjoyed playing with the stamp set Enjoy Life.  The sentiments are spot on and the images are great for encouragement and sports.  We can all use those, or at least I can.  I must have subconsciously been thinking of The Tour De France when I made this card. LOL!!

 

Actually, this was for one of the challenges while Brian King was away on our Facebook group.  It was titled Transportation.  But it does totally fit the Tour De France.

The Swirl & Curls Embossing Folder seems to be a perfect match for the bicycle.  Like the wind and he is speeding along!  The color pairing is a bit different.  I just played around and came up with Merry Merlot and Pool Party.  I never would have thought to pair these two.  I like to peruse my ink pads and look across them for different combinations.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please return tomorrow for another new project.

Go For It

I am not sure why masculine cards are , or at least seem to be, hard to make.   What if masculine cards are our everyday cards just in a different color?  I believe the project I have for you today is one of those cards. It does not scream masculine, but the colors I chose lean that direction.

 

 

This is a really quick card to make.  The longest time part is the embossed basket weave.  And now after my opening paragraph, I can see this done in lighter colors and perfect for anyone.

I am not sure why I got on the masculine talking point.  Maybe because this card was intended for a male???  Who knows with me.  But I hope I have given you food for thought.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I really appreciate it and hope you will return tomorrow for another new project.

Magnolia Enjoy Today

I know there are a lot of Magnolia cards being shared.  I believe it is because the suite of products is just so darn beautiful!!  So I am sharing another one.  This is a pretty simple card in that there is not a lot to it.  I love the “clean” look of this one.

 

The gorgeous DSP is the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  It is the reverse (you know how much I love to use the reverse sides!) of the black background with the small flower above on it.  I layered it on a Whisper White piece to hopefully not have it blend into the base card.

The flower is stamped with Early Espresso Ink.  If you give it just a minute, then it does not bleed when you color it with the Stampin’ Blends.   I love using other than black for my outline a lot of times.  I have yet to have one bleed when the blends are used with it.  I colored the edges of the petals with the Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.  The leaves and stem are done using Light Mossy Meadow and Light Crumb Cake.

The sentiment is from the Good Morning Magnolia set as well.  Another plus in the column for this set is the sentiments. It is stamped in Mossy Meadow on Petal Pink card stock.  I punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch for a bit of a different shape.

Both the flower and sentiment are raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For just a touch of extra, I added a couple of the Gingham Gala Adhesive Back Sequins.  These are great for just a bit of extra texture but they don’t jump out at you!

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.  I have all of the supplies used at the bottom of the post.

Botanical CASE Catalog

Today is another of the Royal Challenge cards I made last week.  This one is a CASE of the catalog.  I chose to use the catalog card as the idea, but used everything different than they used.  A CASE can be just the idea, layout, or a pretty much copy.  I love that we SHARE EVERYTHING!

 

This is a CASE from page 41 of the Annual Catalog.  When I saw the DSP behind the cut out, I realized I had done a similar one recently.  But I love the look and I just happened to be playing with the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  I knew I had to use it.  This gorgeous paper is simply above and beyond all the other beautiful paper Stampin’ Up! carries.

For my card, I used the Stitched Rectangle Framelit Dies and cut out Daffodil Delight.  I then stamped on the “frame” with Daffodil Delight Ink and a stamp from Botanical Bliss stamp set.  I also die cut the Garden Green stems using the Botanical Tags Dies.  The sentiment and flower is from Botanical Bliss as well.  It is stamped and then punched with the Darling Label punch.  I love this almost square punch.  It is the only one that is not more oval shaped!

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I will have another new project to share with you tomorrow.

Cow Love

I will say up front that I made this card a few days ago.  I was so surprised when I checked my Stampin’ Up! Up-Line Brian King’s blog yesterday and saw a very similar card.  I dd not want you , or him, to think I copied his card.  Although it is an acceptable practice and is called CASEing.

Anyway, I made today’s card in response to the Royal Challenge we are doing on our Team Facebook page while Brian is off on the SU Incentive Trip.  I also sent it the next day to a couple I met in my travels that own a cattle ranch.  I thought of them as soon as I saw this awesome Over The Moon stamp set.

 

 

I believe I have said it before, but I think these cows are adorable.  I paired the High Tide set with the cow to get the dirt and grass for the field.

The beautiful color I chose is the new In Color Rococo Rose.  I think the name is sweet as is the color.  The plaid is from the 2019-2021 In Color Paper Stack of 6X6 DSP.  I gave it a small border of white to mimic the white showing with the cow.

The cow is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  It was die cut with the Layering Ovals Dies and backed with a scallop die from the Layering Ovals.

Here is a view of the inside and the envelope.  I was going cow crazy on this card!

 

 

Thank you for visiting today!  I really do appreciate it and hope you will return on Monday for more new projects.

Stampin’ Up! Mini Shipping Box

I skipped the Royal Challenge yesterday due to the Pals Blog Hop.  If you did not go through the Hop, I hope you will do so.  There are some great projects.  Today the Royal Challenge is “Not A Card”.  I love 3D projects, but am not good and creating my own.  For the one today I cheated a bit.  Not Really!!  I created a table centerpiece using the new, and super cute, Mini Shipping Boxes that are in the catalog.  I hope you will like it.

 

 

I got the idea from the Pop Up Box cards.  I created this using the same idea of the cross pieces as used on the pop up box card,  and then adhering my flowers to those.  It isn’t super good from top view, but you can see the method I used.

 

 

I did not add filler to the bottom of the box so that you could see my construction.  If this were my table decoration, I would put some green tissue paper in the bottom to help blend the cross pieces that hold the flowers.

I used both of the Daisy punches and punched in Daffodil Delight and the Perennial Essence Vellum.  The stems and leaves are punched using dies from the Bouquet Bunch Dies.  The tag is from that die set as well.  The sentiment on the tag is from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  All of my adhering besides the green strips in the box are done with glue dots.  Glue Dots are my heroes!!

MEASUREMENTS:

For the cross pieces inside the box, the box is 4″ wide.  I cut three strips 5 X 3/4 and scored each end at 1/2″.  I then folded on the score lines and used Tear & Tape to adhere those to the box inside.  Then all of the flowers stems are adhered to those pieces with glue dots.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you liked seeing something a bit different today.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.

Pals July Blog Hop – Mixing It Up

 

Welcome to the Pals’ July  Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects that are “Mixing It Up” –  adding texture that will really take your projects up a notch – or two! 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.

I Have gone with the more normal methods of adding texture, with only a small twist to it.  The project did not turn out just as I anticipated but sometimes that is ok.

My aim was to give this card a vintage look.  I totally adore the Tin Tile Embossing Folder and have since it debuted.  I gave it just a bit of a twist by embossing a piece of newsprint designer series paper from the Come Sail Way Designer Series Paper pack.  I then used a sponge to add Soft Suede Ink onto the embossed paper for more of the “vintage” look.

I combined a couple of stamp sets for my focal stamped image.  The pitcher is from Country Home stamp set and the flowers are from Vibrant Vases.  I wanted a simpler flower than what is included in the Country Home set, even though I totally adore those flowers.

I wanted a bright color to pair with the darkness of the background.  I found what I wanted in the Terracotta Tile card stock and Ink.  Normally it is not really very bright.  But pairing it with the brown made it Pop!!  Yay!!

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, August 14, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Special Occasions” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Thank you for stopping by.  All of the supplies I used are at the bottom of the page.
