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.

Bee Thankful

I hope you have seen the new Honey Bee Bundle in the Mini Catalog.  It is so cute.  And it pairs with a Sale-A-Bration FREE Designer Series Paper named Golden Honey.  They are perfect together and make beautiful projects.  I am sharing a card I made with my Stamp Club this past Sunday.  I shared the Valentine card we made Tuesday.  You can see that post HERE, or go to the Gallery at the top of the page for all of my posts.

Now on to the Bee Thankful card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Bee Thankful, Golden Honey, Jackie Beers

 

When we made the card in class, I had made one ladies cards that was sick, and I changed the bee on the beehive to another die cut bee.  I failed to take a photo of that one.  It helps that bee to stand out a bit more.

I used Crushed Curry Ink for the beehive and the background of the sentiment.  I used the Dark Daffodil Delight Blends to color the stripes on the bee.  I have found that these do not bleed up next to the Memento Tuxedo Black where the Stampin’ Write Markers sometimes do bleed a bit of the black.

I used punches for the beehive background and the sentiment layers.  The gold dots are leftover from the Christmastime Suite that was a special release in November.  I love the Gold Dots!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you see the cuteness, and the value, of combining these great products.  The Honey Bee Bundle is 41.25.  If you add Crushed Curry Card Stock  for 8.75, you are at exactly 50.00.  You then can choose the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration FREE!  All of the supplies I used are at the bottom of the page and can be added to your cart with a simple click.  And if your order is below $150.00 , please use the host code I have just below.

If you have any questions, please reach out to me.  I would love to speak with you and help in any way. I hope you will return tomorrow to see the third card from my January Stamp Club.

Kindness for GDP222

I have been trying to figure out a project using the Best Dressed Suite of products.  When I saw the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #222 the other day, I looked at the the Designer Series Paper, Best Dressed, and had the card in my head.  Sometimes those ideas do not end up as I see them in my head, but this one did!

 

 

Here is the sketch my card is based on.

 

If you have not looked through this gorgeous DSP, I hope you will check it out in the catalog.  It is on page 55 of the Mini Catalog.  The colors are so vibrant.  I have used both sides of one of the sheets of paper on this card.

The die cut I have the sentiment in is the perfume bottle label.  Stampin’ Up! planned wonderfully and had a couple of the sentiments fit inside it.  I added the single flower, which also has a matching die, for some dimension.

Measurements:

  • card base is 4 1/4 X 11
  • Whisper White layer is 4 1/8 X 5 3/8
  • Bottom DSP layer is 2 1/4 X 4 1/8
  • Top DSP layer is 3 3/4 X 4

 

The price for the Dressed To Impress Bundle is 47.50.  With a package of Stampin’ Dimensionals, you are a little over the 50.00 needed for a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  Enjoy these great products and get another one FREE!

I love all of the coordinating stamps and dies.  Have you seen the flyers regarding some new dies that will be available in February?  I have them showing just below my host code.  They match some of the new stamp sets.  WOOHOO!!  And if you do not have the new catalogs and do not currently have a Demonstrator, please reach out to me.  I will be happy to get the catalogs to you.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I have all of the supplies I used at the bottom of the page.

Pals January 2020 Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! We’re showcasing our favorite new products from 2020 Sale-A-Bration brochure. 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.

Happy New Year stampers!  I am starting the new year with a Celebration cake.  Who doesn’t love cake?  I tried to keep the card fairly simple and something you would all want to use again and again when a cake is needed.

 

 

My celebration cake is created with the Happy Birthday To You Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  When I first saw this cake, I thought it would be beautiful for showers and weddings.  I never seem to have that kind of set on hand.  But after playing it with and going for the more simple approach, I believe it can be used as any celebration that requires cake.  Who wouldn’t want all of those roses to eat?? 🙂

It does not show well in the photo but the flowers have Wink Of Stella on the petals.  I stamped the cake and sentiment in Smoky Slate Ink.  I did not want a dark cake.  I was planning on a soft look with all the colors.

I used a variety of the Stampin’ Blends to color the cake and flowers.  I outlined the cake definition lines and shaded the cake stand.  I debated on fussy cutting a flower and layering it on the cake.  But my plan all along was a pretty card that would not be too time consuming to make.  I look at a lot of the stamps and make my choices based on that.  All of the colors are listed in the supply list at the bottom of the page.

The ribbon is a member of the Parisian Blossoms Suite. The suite is one of the “I want it all” suites of products.  It is the Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon.  I chose to just frame with the ribbon instead of overpowering the cake with a bow.

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, February 12th, for our Art From The Heart blog hop when our Design Team showcase projects made from the heart for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun!

Thank you for stopping in while on the hop.  I would love to hear from you.
