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.

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!!

You Make Me Happy

My first card club of the year was yesterday.  It is so nice to get back in the groove and share what I love with friends!  I could not wait to share with them products from the new catalog.   You will be seeing these cards in the next couple of days.

For the first card I used the Meant To Be Bundle.  Oh My!!  Those dies are fabulous.  You really do need the Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheets for some of the hearts.  It makes adhering them super easy.  And the little step of adding the adhesive sheet before cutting is really no big deal.  For me, it is remembering to do it!  LOL!!

This card is not just for Valentine’s Day.  With the sentiment I used it could be for a variety of reasons, or the sentiment could easily be swapped for another.

 

Meant To Be Bundle, 150587

 

I LOVE everything about these lovely dies.  The stitching, the curly lace look, and the solid hearts (although I did not use one of those on this project), are all perfect for a variety of ideas.

I pulled my colors from this gorgeous DSP. It is the All My Love Designer Series Paper.  And for a change I used the main side instead of the reverse side 🙂  I did stamp the sentiment is Lovely Lipstick, which is also in this DSP.  I needed the darker color to show up on the blue.  I just could not bring myself to use Black on this card.

Color Combination:

 

 

This gorgeous ribbon is one of the Sale-A-Bration items.  This means it is FREE!  And you get five rolls of this beautiful ribbon simply by spending 50.00 on products.  Hint:  the Meant to Be Bundle is 53.00, so there you are!  This Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack contains 5 Yards each of Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, and Lemon Lime Twist !  WOW!!  That is 25 Yards of ribbon at No additional cost to you!!

Love You To Pieces

I want to apologize if you were looking for a post yesterday.  I have been on vacation and though (Haha) that I was scheduled through yesterday.  Well , you know how that goes…..I was wrong.  But I am back now and with a special card.

Today is our 38th Wedding Anniversary!  It really does not seem possible.  But here we are.  So I made a cute card for my hubby.  We are not into gifts anymore and usually go for humor.

 

Love You To Pieces, 147392

 

It is more “cute” than anything, but fits us perfectly.  On a side note:  How do you lose a complete set of dies?  I know I purchased this as the bundle, but the dies are not to be found!!  A nice tip though is that it is really easy to fussy cut these puzzle pieces.  Although it helps if you do not wait until the very last minute and then realize you cannot find the dies!

I kept the card very plain, only two base colors and then the bit of coloring on the heart shape.  I love Night Of Navy with almost anything.  This time I have paired it with Gray Granite.  A great new gray.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I appreciate it more than you know.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

A Wish for InKing Royalty June Blog Hop

 

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Here Comes the Sun.” As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by the joy of the summer sun. 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.

To me Sun = Summer, at least it did when I was a child.  Another childhood summer memory is blowing on the little dandelion flowers and watching the fluff float around.  Now I think of allergies and where I was spreading those little seeds!!  But let’s stick with childhood summer good times!  This is the first thing I thought of when I saw the stamp set Dandelion Wishes in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.  And when I saw the theme for this  month’s blog hop, again I immediately thought of the dandelions!  So here is the card made from my summer memories.

 

 

Dandelion Wishes, 146747

 

 

I totally love that sentiment!  I love the font as well as the statement.  And I am pleased that the card did come together as I envisioned it.  That is a super win for me.  Almost all of these products are new, which is another thing I love.

The colors I chose obviously were to match the Sun theme.  I believe they totally worked to create the summer feeling.  The new Pineapple Punch is a serious WOW and packs a punch (of color)!!

 

Color Combination:

 

 

In case you haven’t figured it out, the sun is from the Painted Harvest sunflower.  I stamped the center and then the least defined of the flower section.

All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the post.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Brian King. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Beautiful Day for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! We are grinning from ear-to-ear with excitement over all the amazing, new products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog – and you’re going to love what we are sharing today. Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer sneak peeks at new products from the upcoming catalog. What fun! 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 Top of the List Favorite from the new Catalog is the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  Actually, it and all that is in that Suite of products!  From the banner above, it would appear that Brian King loves this paper as well!!  My card for today focuses on quite a few of the products, but especially the DSP.

 

Love What You Do, 148042

 

As I said above, I have used quite a few products from this AWESOME Suite.  In doing so, I have a lot more texture than I normally do.  Of course the star is the Designer Series Paper.  As an unexpected touch, I let it be the main focal point and added a little extra with different ribbons. (All of the supplies are listed at the very bottom of the post.)

The sentiment is part of a “Must Have” stamp set as well.  It is Love What You Do and has beautiful flowers, backgrounds, and sentiments.  I know I say it is all a Must Have, but this catalog is really over the top as far as I am concerned and I do want it all!

One other unexpected item on my card is the lighter base color, which is Petal Pink.  It is an Oh My! color.  I think it has a touch of light peach to the pink.  Whatever it may have, it is gorgeous.  And it pairs well with other colors both bold and bright.

Thank you for stopping by my page on the Blog Hop.  I very much appreciate it and love to read your comments.

I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Deb Cozzone . There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!
