Kerchief Cards

I am sharing one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration products today.  It is the Kerchief Card Kit.  Usually when I use these Kits from the catalogs, I add extra items in addition to the kit supplies.  For these samples, I stuck strictly to the supplies given.

 

 

I did used products included in the kit, but I did not copy the cards in the brochure.  They are similar, but I added and moved pieces around.  Overall I give this kit a grade A!  They were quick, easy, and fun to play with.

When I finish the other four, I will do my usual and add other items.  I will share those with you as well and refer back to this post so you can compare.

I have taken the Paper Pumpkin kits on trips with me so I do not go into stamping withdrawal.  This kit would be a great one to take as all you need are a pair of paper snips for the ribbon as an addition.

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you will come back for a new project on Monday!  I am hoping for no rain this weekend.  I hope your weekend goes as you want.

Someone Special

You could say I am carrying over yesterday’s Valentine Blog Hop with InKing Royalty.  I have made a sweet and loving card using the new stamp set Special Someone.  It is an accurate name for an adorable set.  It reminds me of the Nature’s Beauty stamp set that was in the Holiday Catalog and carried over.

 

Stampin' Up!, Someone Special, Stitched So Sweetly, Bird Ballad, Jackie Beers

 

This card was made with the First Sketch from Mary Fish’s Stampin’ Pretty Sketchbook.  #sps001.  She shared the sketch on 01/13/2020.  Here is the sketch.

I noticed in the Mini Catalog samples for Special Someone that the Squirrel and the Rat are facing each other.  And even though I really, really, really dislike rats or mice, I do love the set. So they were my little love couple.  The lovebirds are cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I love the scalloped edge.  And with the stitching they are very easy to adjust the size, which is what I had to do to shorten the piece for fit the couple.

I used a solid piece of Calypso Coral card stock behind the loverbirds and layered it on top of a great piece of DSP from the Bird Ballads Designer Series Paper.  The Burlap Ribbon and Linen Thread are perfect partners.  I needed something for the dots on the DSP so pulled out the faithful pearls.  I colored them with the Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  If you have not tried this, you really should.  They dry almost immediately and you can then have dots in any color you need.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.

InKing Royalty January Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Valentine’s Day, so prepare yourself for lots of hearts and beautiful showcases of love. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My choice for a Valentine’s Day card is a bit different.  I am not a big fan of Red.  As I was looking for options, I came across the Parisian Suite of products.  I new I had found my substitution.  It is a tad unusual, but I hope you will like it.

 

Stampin' Up!, Forever Blossoms, Parisian Dies, Parisian Blossoms, Jackie Beers

 

I definitely went in a different direction from Red!  I chose Petal Pink, Smoky Slate and Soft Sea Foam.  I hope you will agree with me that the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper does have a hint of romance in it.  Of course, the “Amour ” pretty much defines the intention.

The flowers and die cuts are from the Forever Blossoms Bundle.  This is a bundle for any occasion.  The sentiment is from the Parisian Dies. It is the finishing touch.

I am hooked on the soft look to the flowers.  I made a similar “soft” card last week.  You can see it HERE.  My go to for beginning the softness of the flowers is to stamp them in Smoky Slate instead of Black.  I then colored only the highlighted areas and left the rest plain white.

I stamped and cut the branch with flowers as well as two extra blossoms.  The “Amour” is die cut from Smoky Slate.  Everything is placed with Multi purpose Glue except for the blossoms. One is added on top of another blossom for definition.  The second is anchoring the sentiment.

I also stamped the large image on the inside of the card and added a sweet sentiment there.

Rainy Weather Friends

We are having too much rain and some flooding, but there is beauty even in the bad.  That is my thought for this card.  I hope you agree.  I went with several different looks on this one card.

 

 

I layered several different colors along with some pieces that are die cut and others that are cut out with Paper Snips.  The frame for the rain is die cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I chose Blackberry Bliss from the Lilly Impressions Designer Series Paper, a FREE Sale-A-Bration item.

I stamped directly on the Lilly Impressions DSP with Memento Tuxedo Black and punched it out with the Umbrella Builder Punch.  The handle is stamped on Pretty Peacock and punched with the same punch. The rain boots are stamped and fussy cut.  They are then colored with Stampin’ Blends.

The background DSP is the opposite side of the DSP the umbrella is punched from.  It has dark to light streaks in it.  The card base is Pretty Peacock, another color from the Umbrella DSP.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Tomorrow’s post will be part of the InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  I hope you will check it out and hop along with us for some great projects and ideas.

A Poppy Birthday

The new Painted Poppies Bundle Suite of products is Amazing!!!  There are actually two bundles of products that coordinate perfectly together.  The Painted Poppies and the Peaceful Moments Bundles.  They are both on page 25 of the Mini Catalog.

Today I have a simple card that uses the Painted Poppy stamp with a sweet layout to put the focal point on the one single poppy with a stem.

 

Stampin' Up!, Painted Poppy, Bonanza Buddies, Jackie Beers

 

The background for this card is a sheet of the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP.  The sentiment is from the adorable stamp set Bonanza Buddies.

The flower image is stamped in Smoky Slate ink  for a softer flower base and colored with Stampin’ Blends. It is then layered on Rich Razzleberry Card Stock.  The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive Ink and layered on Pool Party Card Stock.  I placed Stampin’ Dimensionals on each end of the sentiment so that it layers over the flower layer.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will return on Monday to see more new projects.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.
