A Good Day

I am mixing two of my most favorite stamp sets today.  One is A Good Day stamp set.  It is so versatile, especially when you need a small sentiment or circle.  I really am sad to see it on the retiring list.  The second is Wishing You Well.  It is a great distinctive stamp set.  The bow is probably my favorite.  So to combine the two I made an Easter wreath.

 

Stampin' Up!, A Good Day, Wishing You Well, Touches of Texture, Jackie Beers

A Good Day, 145873

This little bunny has been a favorite from day one.  I think he is just adorable, and the perfect size for so many things.  I was surprised when I had the wreath idea that he fits perfectly!

The background splatter is from Touches Of Texture stamp set.  I stamped under the wreath with Mint Macaron and then above and below is Mint Macaron stamped off once.  This is another set that will be missed.  I will be looking for a new favorite background splatter!

To finish off the card I went around the outside of the wreath circle with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker.  It is a great way to differentiate the white when layering a white piece onto white.  I thought it needed a bit more though.  So I added the Copper Thread under the wreath.

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.

Tea Together

I have a cute cup of tea to share with you today!  All I need to go with it is a lovely scone.  I have traveled across England and Scotland eating my way in scones!  So anytime I see the lovely Tea Together stamp set I want a scone to go with the tea.  Alas, no scones for today’s card but there is a sweet rose instead.

 

Tea Together, 148779

 

I love the unexpected of the rose inside the tea cup.  I die cut it with the Tea Time Framelits.  They were part of Sale-A-Bration and is supposed to carry over to the next annual catalog.  The rose is the only part of the card that is die cut.  I wanted a simpler look for today.  When I adhered the rose, I straight cut across the bottom of the rose to match the cup edge.  Also, I did not put adhesive on the leaves, only the rose.  I sort of lifted up on the leaves to give them the 3D look.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched it out with the 1 1/8″ scallop circle punch.  The heart is the Heart Epoxy Droplets that I colored with the Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend.  I love these hearts, and the ability to make them any color you want.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I very much appreciate you looking at my projects.  I also, love to read your comments.

As always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

Country Home

I am sharing a card today that includes one of my most favorite stamp sets.  It is the Country Home stamp set.  I just love the flowers, pitcher, and especially the milk can!  I have paired it with one of my new favorite embossing folders.  The Country Floral one.  Do you see a theme here?

 

Country Home, 147678

Other than the fussy cutting of the flowers, this is a quick card.  If you follow my blog posts, you know that I love the Stampin’ Blends.  I stamped a sheet of the flower and pitcher and then colored while watching television.  I love to do that.  I am great at multi-tasking!

The addition of the linen thread and bow was the final country touch that I felt this card needed.  That said, with a different focal point, this embossing folder would make a very elegant card.  Can you see that?  I think it is going to continue to grow in popularity and more people create with it.  I for one cannot wait to see them!

Thank you for visiting today!  I have all of the supplies listed at the bottom of the post.

Sunflower for Case This Sketch

I have made a card today that follows the sketch from Case This Sketch Challenge #316.  The sketch is one that Brian King created.  So of course I had to play along.

 

Painted Harvest, 144783

 

And here is the sketch I CASED.

 

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I am going back through annual catalog stamp sets.  This has always been one of my favorites.  The Panted Harvest stamp set is so versatile with the sunflower.  It makes gorgeous wreaths as well.  But today I went with a sunflower.  That is something that can easily stand alone.

I used the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper for a part of the background. For the top section I made my own background by stamping a leaf from the same stamp set.  It is Pear Pizzaz stamped onto Pear Pizzaz card stock.  I love the look that gives.  I also used the Layering Circles for the center scallop and plain circle.  The sentiment is punched with a 3/4″Circle Punch.  Just to add a bit more texture, I added the linen thread beneath the flower layer.  I hope that thread never goes away.  It is perfect when just a touch of texture or ribbon is needed.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back on Monday for some new projects.  I have a card swap with my Stamp Club on Sunday.  So I will share the cards I have made for that next week.

Hey Friend for GDP183

I am making a “Day At The Park” card for the Global Design Project 183 challenge.  It is a very soft card, which I do not do very often.  I tend to lean towards bright colors.  I was pleasantly surprised that I really like it!

 

Flowing Fountain, 148738

 

And here is the challenge icon:

This is a really simple card that would work for a variety of occasions.  It took me some time to originally give this stamp set even a second look.  But then I thought of it as a “sketch” or “Pin and Ink” type drawing.  Then it seemed to have more appeal.  Now that I have colored it, although softly colored, I like it even more.  I never would have dreamed I would like the results this much when I first opened the catalog.

Thank you for visiting today!  Please return tomorrow for another project.  And as always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the page.
