Gather Together

Today’s card is my first card from the Holiday Catalog!  WooHoo!!  It is an awesome catalog.  They always are, and each time I say this one is the best.  It is true once again!

I am sharing a Fall or Thanksgiving card today.  As always, the Designer Series Paper is fabulous!  I love the colors they have paired in this pack.  It is called Come To Gather Designer Series Paper.  I have also used the Gather Together stamp set.  The set has matching dies, but I did not use those on this one.

 

Do you agree on the beautiful DSP?  The Pretty Peacock really pops, and it pairs well with the Early Espresso and Sahara Sand.  Once again, the DSP takes the focal point.

The sentiment and background are cut with the Layering Squares Dies.  The pieces are raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the Braided Linen Trim runs beneath the square.  I taped the ribbon to the back and then made a bow to glue dot to the front.  That is the simple way of getting a perfectly snug ribbon and bow!

Thank you for stopping in today.  I have all of the supplies listed at the bottom of the post.

Enjoy Life

I have really enjoyed playing with the stamp set Enjoy Life.  The sentiments are spot on and the images are great for encouragement and sports.  We can all use those, or at least I can.  I must have subconsciously been thinking of The Tour De France when I made this card. LOL!!

 

Actually, this was for one of the challenges while Brian King was away on our Facebook group.  It was titled Transportation.  But it does totally fit the Tour De France.

The Swirl & Curls Embossing Folder seems to be a perfect match for the bicycle.  Like the wind and he is speeding along!  The color pairing is a bit different.  I just played around and came up with Merry Merlot and Pool Party.  I never would have thought to pair these two.  I like to peruse my ink pads and look across them for different combinations.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please return tomorrow for another new project.

Magnolia Enjoy Today

I know there are a lot of Magnolia cards being shared.  I believe it is because the suite of products is just so darn beautiful!!  So I am sharing another one.  This is a pretty simple card in that there is not a lot to it.  I love the “clean” look of this one.

 

The gorgeous DSP is the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  It is the reverse (you know how much I love to use the reverse sides!) of the black background with the small flower above on it.  I layered it on a Whisper White piece to hopefully not have it blend into the base card.

The flower is stamped with Early Espresso Ink.  If you give it just a minute, then it does not bleed when you color it with the Stampin’ Blends.   I love using other than black for my outline a lot of times.  I have yet to have one bleed when the blends are used with it.  I colored the edges of the petals with the Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.  The leaves and stem are done using Light Mossy Meadow and Light Crumb Cake.

The sentiment is from the Good Morning Magnolia set as well.  Another plus in the column for this set is the sentiments. It is stamped in Mossy Meadow on Petal Pink card stock.  I punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch for a bit of a different shape.

Both the flower and sentiment are raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For just a touch of extra, I added a couple of the Gingham Gala Adhesive Back Sequins.  These are great for just a bit of extra texture but they don’t jump out at you!

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.  I have all of the supplies used at the bottom of the post.

Reminder:  It is middle of the month and the BONUS DAYS are half over!  During July, for every $50.00 of merchandise, you receive a $5.00 coupon to use in August.  There is no limit to the number of coupons you can receive!!

Cow Love

I will say up front that I made this card a few days ago.  I was so surprised when I checked my Stampin’ Up! Up-Line Brian King’s blog yesterday and saw a very similar card.  I dd not want you , or him, to think I copied his card.  Although it is an acceptable practice and is called CASEing.

Anyway, I made today’s card in response to the Royal Challenge we are doing on our Team Facebook page while Brian is off on the SU Incentive Trip.  I also sent it the next day to a couple I met in my travels that own a cattle ranch.  I thought of them as soon as I saw this awesome Over The Moon stamp set.

 

 

I believe I have said it before, but I think these cows are adorable.  I paired the High Tide set with the cow to get the dirt and grass for the field.

The beautiful color I chose is the new In Color Rococo Rose.  I think the name is sweet as is the color.  The plaid is from the 2019-2021 In Color Paper Stack of 6X6 DSP.  I gave it a small border of white to mimic the white showing with the cow.

The cow is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  It was die cut with the Layering Ovals Dies and backed with a scallop die from the Layering Ovals.

Here is a view of the inside and the envelope.  I was going cow crazy on this card!

 

 

Thank you for visiting today!  I really do appreciate it and hope you will return on Monday for more new projects.

Daisy Smiles

I have a very Happy card to share today.  At least I believe it is one that will make you SMILE!  I also added a technique that is not as often used as most.

 

I believe daisies are just Happy Flowers.  They seem to jump off of the card here.  I used both the old Daisy Punch and NEW Medium daisy punch today.  Each is two punched out flowers layered on top of each other.  I also added the Perennial Essence Floral Center to each flower.

The background is Direct Ink To Paper.  I simply opened the ink pad and drug it across the face of the Whisper White card stock.  When I have shared this technique before, it was done on Glossy card stock. This time I used just regular Whisper White, not even the Thick version.

The two colors I used are Pretty Peacock on the bottom and Seaside Spray on the upper section.  I went over it a second time in spots where I had lifted a tad early.  I like the light and dark that you get in doing this technique.  You do not want to press too hard.

The leaves are from the Daisy Lane Stamp set and are stamped in Granny Apple Green.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I love one stamp set cards!!  I stamped the Smile on a scrap of card stock and then only punched one end with the Pretty Label Punch.  I accomplished this by placing the piece of card stock inside the cutting area from the back.  It was smaller than the punch area, so it was easy to line up top and bottom and then just punch the one end.  I love playing with our punches to get different looks!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card base is 11 X 4 1/4
  • Layer is 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • Center layer is 3 7/8 X 3 3/8
  • White Center is 3 3/4 X 3 1/4

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!!
