Thank You Big Time

I am in love with the new Scalloped Notecards and Envelopes.  I shared one with you a bit earlier.  You can see that one HERE.  But today I have really had some fun with them.  I paired it with a stamp set I was so happy carried over to the new catalog.  It is the Animal Outing set.  The animals are so cute and perfect for so many fun cards.

 

Stampin' Up!, Animal Outing, Scalloped Notecards, Jackie Beers

I think this turned out really cute.  I actually left more room between the giraffe and the tree frog than I had intended.  So I was wondering how I was going to make it work.  I thought of a “thought bubble” like you see in cartoons.  In looking at the punches I have, I spotted the Balloon Bouquet Punch and new it could easily become my talking bubble.  I am happy with how it turned out.  A lesson about being able to make a cute card when you think you have messed up!!

I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Stampin’ Blends.  I added the Glitter Enamel Dots in various shades of green and one Crushed Curry on the talking bubble.  I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners of the Whisper White layer for a bit different look.

It seemed that the white of the inside of the envelope, which shows at the bottom below the scallop, didn’t look finished.  I went searching for a DSP scrap that had the card colors and found the Mosaic Mood DSP has Crushed Curry.  I added a 1/2″ strip to the inside bottom of the card and along the bottom of the front of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will have another new project to share tomorrow morning.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

Free As A Bird Pals June Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ June  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects using “Anything with Wings”. 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 am sharing birds for my “anything with wings” challenge.  This is actually my second card.  I switched from butterflies to birds.

 

Stampin' Up!, Free As A Bird, Stitched Nested Labels, Subtle Embossing, Bird Ballad, Jackie Beers

 

This is the negative of the Stitched Nested Labels that I shared on Monday’s card.  I love getting two cards from one piece.  I embossed the So Saffron with the Subtle Embossing Folder prior to cutting with the Stitched Nested Labels.  (They are bundled with the Free As A Bird stamp set!)  The gorgeous DSP is the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

The birds are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends.  I decided to fussy cut the birds to give more dimension to the card.  The trick is to turn the paper and not your scissors!  I also stamped and cut out the small flower from the stamp set to anchor the banner at the top.

Wild About You

I mentioned yesterday I was saying goodbye to some of my favorite DSP today.  Yes, It is the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  It such fun animal prints, but also really bright sides as well.  I love both sides.  Thankfully the Animal Outing Bundle will be carrying over……..BUT it will no longer be a bundle in the new catalog.  So if you do not have it, get it before June 3 and save yourself 10%.

 

If you follow my blog, you know that I love bright colors most of all.  This Designer Series Paper is right up my alley!!    I love to color, but the beautiful giraffe is not my coloring (I wish I was that good!).  It is cut directly from a piece of the DSP.  The dies and paper pair up exactly for ease of card making.  Or I can imagine in a scrap book for the “wild child”!!

I layered the same piece of  DSP .  The Berry Burst that is attached to the Lemon Lime Twist base is the back side of the top layer of DSP with the cute birds.

I was afraid my little giraffe would not show up enough.  I raised him with dimensional, and then grounded him with the strip of Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon.  The sentiment is stamped on white and punched with the Tailored Tag Punch.  I love using that layer in the up and down direction.  The added bling is from the Glitter Enamel Dots.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for a project with new products!!

Free As A Bird

The next two days I am breaking out some new stamp sets.  I know other demonstrators have been using them for a few weeks.  I wanted to give some last minute LOVE to the retiring products first.  And I will continue to do that.  But I thought you would like to see some new items, and I was getting antsy wanting to play with them!!

 

Stampin' Up!, Free As A Bird, Bird Ballad, Jackie Beers

I assume that you guessed the stamp set from the title of the page today!  Aren’t these birds adorable?  And the designer series paper is a WOW!!!  Stampin’ Up! colored several of the pages with the Stampin’ Blends and then photographed it for the paper.  Extreme Talent!!

I chose the branch full of birds and decided to make them Robins.  I know the colors are not perfect, but I love coloring.  You will probably see many variations of colors as I play with this set more.  The Designer Series Paper, Bird Ballad, is great with birds, feathers, flowers, etc.  I chose the feathers today because of the colors and it leaves white space to match the birds.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great day and will return tomorrow.  I have another new stamp set to share!

Piggy Confidence

I returned from a FABULOUS trip to Charlotte for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Event.  I was surrounded but a large group of Demonstrators who were all so thrilled to be there.  The weather was not too hard on us and fun was had!

We did a card swap in my group and I forgot to take a picture of the card I made.  However, I used the same basic card with my Stamp Club last week.  So I am sharing that version.  It is really the same, just different Designer Series Paper.  I will say that using different paper gives it a very different look.  I don’t know why that is.  Today’s version is very bright!

 

This Little Piggy, 143922

 

I adore This Little Piggy!  And am THRILLED to share with you that it is carrying over into the new Annual Catalog.  WooHoo!!!  Seeing the catalog early, and let me tell you that it is AWESOME, is one of the best reasons to be a SU Demonstrator!

Back to the card!!  I stamped the piggy and colored her with the Stampin’ Blends.  You may not be able to see from the photograph, but I added Wink Of Stella to her wings.  Wings should sparkle!!  And that is pretty much it.  I have the measurements for the DSP listed below.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you like this card.  It is a great way to use up scrap DSP, and the small pieces we cut off when trimming layers.  I have listed all of the supplies at the bottom of the post.  I have also added a HOST CODE if you would like to place an order with me.  If you do not currently have a SU Demonstrator I would love to help you and if you will let me know, I will send you a new catalog next month when they become available.

Measurements:

  • Base layer is 8 1/2 X 5 1/2
  • Layer is 4 1/4 X 5 3/8
  • Dsp is 4 X 5 1/4, cut into 2 pieces of roughly 1/3 and 2/3 . I simply flipped over one piece for the two DSP you see.  You can always mix and match if you are doing multiples.
  • The strip is 1/2 X 4 of coordinating card stock, or you could use a strip of ribbon if you prefer.
  • Pig layers are 2 3/4 X 3 and 2 5/8 X 2 7/8

 

 

If you place an order with me, please use the April Host Code of 3KNKXJFH.  If your order is $75.00 (of product) or more, I will send you a small gift.  If it is over $150.00 (of product) I will send you a small gift, but DO NOT use the code. 150.00 is the minimum host rewards so you get the host rewards.

Animal Expedition

I have been finishing my swap cards and 3D swaps for OnStage in Charlotte this weekend.  Whooo!! I have been really far behind on all of that.  But I am down to just putting the boxes together.  They will get worked on during the ride up there tomorrow.  I will share that project with you next week.

Before I get to  my card, I snapped a picture of my gorgeous azalea bush that has decided to pop out in the last couple of days.  Here it is.

 

For todays card I have a really quick and sweet card.  I have been using some Annual Catalog stamps this week and today continues that theme.  I went with the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  It is so adorable!  And the Label Me Pretty stamp set for the little sentiment.

 

The only stamping on this card is the sentiment.  The sweet animals were punched from the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  How easy is that!!!  I paired it with another piece of DSP from the same package.  The base colors are Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.  They are both on the soon to be retiring list.  They are in the 2017-2019 In Colors.  So we have known they would be leaving us.  I really do wish the Lemon Lime Twist could stay.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I will share my swaps next week.  Please Like my FaceBook page, Blue Line Stamping, and you may get to see some sneak peeks at new products coming soon.
