Welcome Baby for FMS409

Today’s card is for a Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I am using a stamp set that you may not have noticed before.  It is a stamp set named Hoot Hoot Hooray and is from the Beginner Brochure.  This is a brochure aimed at the beginner stamper. But I love all of the stamp sets in the brochure.  I will try to begin sharing more of them with you.  You can see the Beginner  Brochure HERE.   The stamp set is in the rear of the pamplet and is so cute.

 

 

Here is the Sketch from Freshly Made Sketches 409 challenge:

 

 

For the focus, I chose the Welcome baby rocky horse.  I took the “baby” theme to the basics.  I chose to use the old fashioned primary colors.

The background designer series paper is a new one for me.  It is the See A Silhouette DSP.  Oh my, I love it!  The colors are all so vibrant!  It worked perfectly with my primary color theme as that is what the entire pack of DSP is.  A super find for me.

I masked off the sentiment which is attached to the rocky horse.  I wanted them to be separate.  I made a little flag to show the sentiment.  I colored the rocky horse and precious teddy bear with Stampin’ Blends.  Then cut everything using the Layering Circles Dies.

I have not made a square card in a little while.  The sketch appeared to be square, so I liked that idea.  This would be so cute tucked into a baby gift.

AND…..I got to use the new Paper Trimmer for the project.  I promise you, the more I use it, the more I LOVE it!!  I am so happy now that there were problems with the old one.  I liked it, but this one is so much better!

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

Birthday Daisy

WooHoo!!  It is November 1st.  Do you know what that means?  You can order the new Paper Trimmer today!  The Christmastime Is Here Suite is also available.

I have a quick Birthday card to share today.  I am back to the annual catalog and the Daisy Lane stamp set.

 

 

I am so happy the way these daisies turned out.  I stamped them with Merry Merlot Ink, and then sponged them with the same ink again to give a variegated look.  I used both of the sizes of Daisy punches for this project.  The center daisy is fussy cut.  For a touch of glitter, I added the Glitter Enamel Dots to the center of each flower.  I also added a couple to the background as well.

The background is the fern / leaf from the stamp set.  I stamped it full strength and some stamped off to show the depth.  The Whisper White panel is cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies.  For the background I used a back side of one of the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper.  I love this music sheet look.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will return on Monday for another new project.

Halloween Hello

I had to make a Halloween card for my Trick or Treat friends.  I also tried a different layout that I really love and will definitely be giving it a go with other seasonal designs soon.

 

Stampin' Up!, tags tags tags, Jackie Beers, Spooktacular Bash

 

I used three different pieces of the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper for this layout.  The star of the card though is the adorable tags.  They are from the Tags, Tags, Tags stamp set.  There are three tags for Halloween, three tags for Christmas, and three tags for Valentine.  The stamp is connected so it stamps all three at one time.  Then the matching dies cut all three tags at once.  What a deal!!

Here is a view of the inside of the card:

 

 

On the left side is the third of the tags.  The Whisper White sentiment layer is hidden from view by the front square.  I made it a smidgen smaller so it is easier to hide.  The sentiment is from the Spooktacular Bash Stamp set.  It has such cute sentiments.

 

Measurements:

  • 5 3/4 X 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • inside layer is 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • inside DSP is 5 1/4 X 4
  • front left layer is 5 3/8 X 1 3/8
  • front DSP is 5 1/4 X 1 1/4
  • front center layer is 3 1/4 X 3 1/4
  • front DSP is 3 1/8 X 3 1/8
  • inside center is 3 X 3

Merry Moose

Today’s card is a winter card as much as for Christmas.  I love mixing the stamps and designer series paper to make cards that are for more than a season.   This one works as a masculine card as well.

 

 

Who doesn’t love a Moose with a scarf?  LOL!!  I wanted to give him a softer look and decided I did not want to fussy cut the scarf in the stamp set.  I adore the Braided Linen Thread and thought the extra piece as a scarf worked.

The trees are from the Merry Moose Bundle as well.  I stamped them once full strength and then again before re-inking to get the different shades of green.  The one on the far left is stamped a third time without re-inking.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I have a cute Halloween card to share tomorrow for Trick or Treat day!

Christmas Rose

The Christmas Rose products will be available for customer orders beginning on November 1st.  As will the new Paper Trimmer.  I thought I would share a project with the Christmas Rose stamp set.  This is so pretty and would work for other than Christmas.  The stamp set has two cases.  There is the single stamp, which is what I used today, in Red Rubber.  The second case holds several stamps and they are in photopolymer.  They can be used to add color to the large stamp I have used.  I chose to color mine with Stampin’ Blends instead.

 

 

I stamped the large image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it using a variety of the Stampin’ Blends.  I colored the roses with Poppy Parade and used that card stock as the base and layer of the card.  The Designer Series Paper you see is from the Christmastime Is Here DSP.  I wanted a sort of subtle background for the rose.  This paper reminds me of old fashioned wallpaper.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • base is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2
  • White is 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • DSP is 5 1/4 X 4
  • Poppy Parade is 4 3/4 X 3 3/4
  • White is 4 5/8 X 3 5/8

 

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