I Am Back!!

I am back from my awesome sightseeing tour down the west coast.  We went from Seattle to San Francisco. I must say the Oregon Coast is simply breathtaking!  All of the scenery and sights were wonderful.

Today I have a pretty quick card for you.  I am trying to get back in the groove and have a lot of cards to make.  So we will get right to it this morning.

 

Dandelion Wishes, 146747

 

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I used the beautiful Tropical Escape 6X6 Designer Series Paper Stack as the main color scheme for this card.  I am really in love with this paper.  The colors are so bright and are some surprising combinations.  The colors I have used today are not something I would normally have put together.  So keep this combination to try yourself.

The three triangles, or squares if turned another way, are a great way to have a different look with stamp sets.  I chose the Dandelion Wishes set and stamped them very subtly with the Gray Granite. I used the Layering Squares to cut them and the Blushing Bride scalloped background.

Thank you for coming back to see me today!  I really appreciate it.

There are two fabulous promotions going on right now.

By joining as a demonstrator in July, you will receive as a FREE bonus to your Starter Kit (The Best Shopping Deal!!) a complete set of a color family of Ink Pads.  Yes, that is 10 ink pads at no charge!!  WOW!  And I would love to have you join my team.  So please contact me and let’s discuss it.  Ot simply click on the Join My Team button at the top of the page!

InKing Royalty February Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! Today’s Blog Hop is filled to the brim with projects that celebrate birthdays. The opening line from The Beatles’ “Birthday” song ran through our heads as we joyfully created the birthday-themed creations we share 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.

I made a Happy Birthday party card!  I believe this is the “happiest” birthday card I have ever made.  So it is very appropriate for a themed blog hop.  The We Must Celebrate stamp set was the perfect set for what I envisioned.

If you noticed that my animals are not in the line like their stamp is, you are very observatve.  I cut them apart!!  I know it is a shock to a lot of you, and it is the first time I have ever had the nerve to do this.  I have to say that it will not be the last time I do it.  I love the versatility it gives.  And I cut them so that they nestle back together on a large clear block just like they originally were.  A win/ win for me.

I colored the guys with the Stampin’ Blends, my favorite product right now.  The DSP is the FREE Bubbles & Fizz DSP from Sale-A-Bration.  The layers are Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral.  I made a banner and gave it a jaunty angle to go with my happy guys on the card.

The measurements are below the list of blog hop names.  I have some funky measurements because I started with a piece of Whisper White that was on my desk and loved how it turned out.  So I had to work with those measurements.

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

Sweet Little Someone

I am playing along with the Global Design Project challenge again ,GDP123, and this time I will submit it within the time period.  This challenge is New Beginnings.  The set I immediately thought of is one that I have not used but a few times.  It is the super cute “A Little Wild” set.  The adorable animals make tags or can be used as front/back on a card.  I just used the front of the precious elephant for my card.

I used the blends to color again.  I told you I am hooked on those pens.  That aside, I love the elephant holding the balloon.  I think it is a cute Welcome Baby type card.  The other animals in the set would be just as adorable.

To get just the front of the elephant, I used my Momento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and just tapped it on the one side of the stamp.  I have found that from using the Absorber cloth to clean my stamps that I do not have the light color left.  Before I would have a pale pinkish residue that would stamp when I didn’t want it to!

The balloon is from the Balloon Bouquet Punch and is the larger of the two.  I then took the Sweet Sugarplum marker and went around the edge of the white balloon to give it some depth.  This is a great trick to use when you do not have the layering of card stock.

A Treat For You

Here is another of my cards that are inspired by my cleaning out my craft room.  I have a Love/Hate relationship going on with it right now!!  I am enjoying looking through the old cards.  Today’s idea came from a gift tag and I scaled it down to fit the Everyday Label Punch.

 

Stampin' Up!, A Good Day, Jackie Beers

A Good Day, 145873

 

And here is the little insert :

 

Stampin' Up!, A Good Day, Jackie Beers

A Good Day, 145873

 

When I was trying to resize the little envelope to fit the Everyday Label Punch, I realized I need to challenge myself in math more often.  Oh My!!!  It took quite a bit longer than was necessary.  In the long run, I believe the time was well spent.  I am happy with how this card came out.

The color inspiration was the Tutti-Fruitti 6 X 6 DSP.  Although I used Pacific Point instead of Night of Navy, the strawberry DSP was my inspiration.  The little ice cream cone on the note is (at least in my mind) strawberry ice cream. HaHa!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base card is 11 X 4 1/4 scored and folded in half
  • The strips of Pacific Point are 1/4 X 5 1/2 each
  • The DSP is 3 X 5 1/2

 

  • The envelope is 5 X 2 3/4, score at 1/2″ down each long side, and at 2 3/8 across the center.
  • Fold and burnish all the lines.
  • When folded in half, one side is longer than the other.  Cut each 1/2 side scores off of the longer end.
  • Miter the corners on the 1/2 sides that are left
  • Use the 1/2″ circle punch to make the little half notch for easier tag removal
  • Add Fast Fuze on the sides.  Place the punched piece inside as you close so that you have easy sliding room.
  • Use the hand held 1/8″ punch to punch a hole in the end of the tag and add the desired ribbon.

 

Thank you very much for visiting today!  I hope you enjoyed this little card.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Hope Your Day Is Wonderful

The blog title says it perfectly!!  Why else would we send someone a card than to “Hope your day is wonderful”.  This is another great sentiment from the A Mother’s Flair stamp set.

I hope you didn’t do a double take and think this is the same card I posted last Thursday.  It is very similar and actually has the leftover parts I played with on that card.  I love utilizing pieces that did not fit exactly on one card into another card where they work perfectly.

 

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

 

When you look at these colors together, they do not seem to work all that well.  But when the Designer Series Paper has all of those colors in it, then it does.  They go from “No Way!” to “Oh , that is cute”.

I have been boxing up part of my craft space to put in a new desk.  In doing so, I failed to make a few cards ahead of time.  Oops!!!  That is why today’s post is a little late.  Now I have to get back to it and clean up the rest so I can make cards for the rest of the week.  There is also an InKing Royalty Blog Hop on Wednesday.  Stay tuned for that because they are always fun and full of awesome ideas!

I realized during my boxing up that I have WAY TOO MUCH stuff!!!  But I did get my new desk up and now have to put that section back together and then try to clean out the rest.  I have a ton of craft supplies to donate to a Special Needs business near me.

Thank you so much for visiting with me tomorrow.  I hope you enjoyed this sort of “Take Two” card using the same products.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Sprinkles of Life card

I have another card with an older stamp set.  The Sprinkles of Life set has been around for a year or so and I realized I had not used it very much lately.  All those new sets are so exciting that we forget to look at the other ones.  Be warned, this card is a bright one!

Sprinkles of Life, 139971

 

I thought a bright 4 X 4 card fit the image of the Sprinkles of Life sentiment.  It is designed to make you smile.  And it made me smile because it was really quick and easy to put together!

The cupcake is stamped and the bottom is hand cut while the frosting top is punched with the Tree Builder Punch.  Who knew that you could get a cupcake out of a tree????  (LOL)  I layered both with dimensionals and then the banner tips are cut using the Banner Triple Punch.  I just placed the ends into the tip of the punch.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!


Remember there is a limited time for the 1/2 Price Paper Pumpkin Kit!!!
