Tropical Wreath

I am showcasing two great Stampin’ Up! products today.  The beautiful Designer Series Paper, and the Amazing Stamparatus.  I love, love, love both of these products.  This is a card I shared with my Stamp Club yesterday to show them some special abilities of the Stamparatus.

 

Stampin' Up!, Stamparatus, Tropical Chic, Colorful Seasons, Jackie Beers

Stamparatus Wreath, 146276

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I added the fourth color to my combination to make the flower pop.  I love Blushing Bride, but it is a bit too shy to POP!

This Tropical Chic DSP is one of my favorites.  I love bright colors and this is right up my alley.  The flower from Colorful Seasons seem to be the perfect flower for this card.  It fit perfectly with the size template I had made for the Stamparatus Wreath technique.

Here is a picture of my template. I think it pretty much explains the process to make your own very easily.  Just find the center, line up the die, cut and turn it from square to diamond and cut again.

I hope you will give this technique a try.  There are several videos already out there with directions so I did not create one. I would love to see your version if you decide to try it.   I appreciate you stopping by today and hope you will return tomorrow.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

The Greatest

I have found myself using quite a bit more Designer Series Paper in the last few months than I ever have.  I am not sure why, but I am loving all of the DSP in the new Annual Catalog from Stampin’ Up!.  They do know how to pick beautiful paper.  Today’s card is carrying on that trend.  I have used the Tropical Escape DSP.

 

Tropical Chic Bundle, 148339

 

Since this DSP debuted I have  used more Blushing Bride card stock than in the last several years.  Suddenly it is perfect to pair with several different colors.  Here is my color combination for today.  It came from the DSP of course.

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

 

The Granny Apple Green layer is the Bokah Dots stamp set.  I love the look of texture it gives!  For the flower, I used the Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker to color the entire flower.  I then took the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker and lightly went around the edges and the inner lines.  Mango Melody is the perfect bright color to compliment the others.  The sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade as well and punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch.  The edge is also from the Poppy Parade marker.  I simple ran the side of the brush tip around the edge of the cut out.  Easy Peasy!  Having the matching Framelits for this stamp set makes this a very quick card.  I love that….

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base Card of Blushing Bride is 4 1/4 X 11
  • Shaded Spruce layer is 5 1/4 X 4
  • DSP layer is 5 3/8 X 3 7/8
  • Blushing Bride small layer is 3 5/8 X 2 1/2
  • Bokah Dots layer is 3 1/2 X 2 3/8

Blue Harvest

You will laugh over the inspiration for today’s card!  We have several bird feeders on the edge of our backyard.  When I was refilling them yesterday I noticed some tiny corn and sunflowers trying to grow.  Who would have thought you could grow plants from birdseed.  Anyway…..that was the inspiration for today’s card.

 

Painted Harvest, 144783

 

Color Combination:

 

 

Of course I took creative license in making the sunflowers blue!  LOL!!  The area where our bird feeders are located back up to the neighbor’s privacy fence resulting the use of the Wood Textures DSP for the stamping surface.  You never know where inspiration will come from!

 

I don’t normally show other photos, but I have to share this one with you.  I live north of Atlanta and we get strange weather.  Well yesterday afternoon was the strangest yet, and a little scary.  We had the largest hail storm I have ever seen.  What do you think?

These are in my husband’s hands so they really are quite large, and oddly shaped.  It sounded like golfballs being hit against our garage door and gutters.  We had just been in the yard when it happened and ran into the garage.  So I am not sure how bad it was inside the house.  Yikes!  I hope not to repeat that again.

 

Okay!  Thank you for visiting today.  The supplies I used are at the bottom of the page.  And you will be surprised at how little supplies were used.  Although I do have to say that I am growing more and more in love with the Mango Melody color!!

Love Copper

Copper has always been a favorite of mine.  So I cannot explain why I have waited this length of time to try embossing on the Copper Foil Sheet!  I hope you will be as happy with today’s outcome as I am.

 

Lovely Floral Dynamic , 148048

 

Isn’t that gorgeous???  (Please excuse the glare, it is difficult to photograph shiny items.)  I cannot believe I have waited this long to emboss the foil.

I am sure you recognize the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  The cut out flowers are from that pack as well.  The wonderful sentiment is from that Suite of products and is aptly named Love What You Do!

For the corner rounder I used the new Detailed Trio Punch.  I know I have used it several times recently, but I really like how it punches.  However, today is the first time I have tried the ribbon hole punch that is one of the three different punches.  I will definitely be utilizing it more often.

Thank you very much for stopping by today!  I hope you liked today’s card.  I have listed all of the products at the bottom of the post.

REMINDER :  You only have until the end of the month to take advantage of the fabulous Join promotion to receive a FREE color family of ink pads.  Also, the buy 3 get 1 FREE of the DSP will be ending on the 31st as well.

Your Special Hug

I am back to regular card making for today.  The series of items from my Tea Tin gift was different for me.  It was nice to venture out of the norm.  But now I feel like I need a Hug.  And that is what today’s card is all about.  I have used the Hedgehugs Stamp Set to create a quick and easy little card.

 

Hedgehugs, 145879

 

This card is so bright and cheery that I think it would work for just about anyone, and for a lot of occasions.  I adore that sentiment telling you that you are special.

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

There are quite a few of the new Stampin’ Up! Colors that I am particularly fond of.  These two are at the top of the list.  They are both very vibrant.  Maybe not the typical woodsy colors, but who cares!

I have listed all of the supplies at the bottom of the post.  Even though my card has a lot of pieces, it is really quite simple and quick.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I very much appreciate it.  I hope you have a great weekend and will come back on Monday to see another project.

 


 

It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.

Celebrate

Today I have once again used the Cake Soiree stamp set.  I have paired it with the fabulous Gorgeous Grape from the Color Revamp.  This is a beautiful color and if you are a fan of purples, then this one is definitely for you.

 

Stampin' Up!, Cake Soiree, Gorgeous Grape, Detailed Trio Punch, Jackie Beers

Cake Soiree, 145745

 

 

Please forgive the smudge under the cake!  Somehow by simply laying on my craft table waiting for me to take the photograph it got a smudge!  I cannot even blame it on one of the cats!!

I colored the cake with the Stampin’ Blends. And WOOHOO they are back in stock to catch up on the backorders and I am anxiously awaiting the availability of the additional colors.  I do LOVE the Stampin’ Blends.  The background layer of Pear Pizzaz is embossed with the Ruffled Impressions Embossing Folder.  This gives almost a 3D effect in person.

There are three new items on this card as well.  The 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, which comes in Whisper White and Very Vanilla, and the Detailed Trio Punch.  Both are awesome!  The ribbon is very easy to work with and added just enough of an additional element.  The Detailed Trio Punch is super!  It punches the little flower you see here.  It also punches a ribbon hole as well as is a corner rounder.  And it is super easy to use.  If you had the trio punch from a few years ago, it might have been a little difficult to actually punch.  At least mine was.  This one is super easy and I love the little flower!  As well as the corner rounder since the old one retired. Oh…..I forgot the 3rd item.  It is the Share What You Love Pearls.  And they are gorgeous.  I added several of them to my cake and the flowers.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you like this card.  I see it as a birthday or a bridal shower.  All of the supplies I have listed at the bottom of the page.  I hope you have a great rest of your day!
