A Simple Congratulations

Today’s card is done in Wisteria Wonder.  I really adore this color, but then find that I rarely use it.  Do you ever find yourself in this situation?  Hopefully this card will inspire you to use your favorite color.  I do love how this card came together.  Another quick and easy one.

Daisy Delight, 143669

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

As I said before, I love Wisteria Wonder , and I believe it pairs beautifully with any of the greens.  I am partial to matching it with Wild Wasabi though. And instead of using any of Stampin’ Up!’s beautiful DSP, I went back to my old faithful the embossing folder.  This is Petal Burst Embossing Folder and it is wonderful to use with a stamped flower image.

And speaking of the stamped flower image……do you know what set this cute little flower is from?  It is from the Daisy Delight stamp set.  It is almost hidden due to the size and you are drawn to the large daisy stamp.  Another reason to grab this stamp set!!!

I did use the Layering Square Framelit and Stitch Shapes Framelit dies to add some extra detail to the simple stamped flower.  All of the layering framelits and the stitched shapes framelits are perfect for most cards.  They may seem like you are splurging, but I think they are wonderful investments!

I apologize that the ribbon is a retired item.  Although I have not checked to see if it is still on the clearance rack.  It is the Wisteria Wonder Seam Binding Ribbon.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.  The supplies I used are listed below.  If you click on any of the photos it will take you directly to my online store.

You’re The Best

I am playing with a few of the Stampin’ Up! Host Rewards Stamp sets in the coming week.  Today is the first of them.  This card is made with the Tranquil Tulips set.  It is a beautiful set, and it just inspires you to try all colors of tulips!

 

Tranquil Tulips,143767

 

My color choices for today were just from me asking myself what would be a pretty tulip color!  This set makes any color beautiful.  So I came up with these.

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

The tulips are stamped in Rich Razzleberry without stamping off!  I intended to stamp off for the first one and forgot, so when I stamped the top layer I really liked it.  These are definitely easy to use stamps and very forgiving as well.  The texture covers up our mistakes.  So I did all of the stamping full strength and it still resulted in a variegated look.  Win/Win.

The sentiment is from Label Me Pretty and punched with the matching punch.  (You can get these as a great bundle).  I added the ribbon and even though it is Fresh Fig, it works wonderfully with the Rich Razzleberry.

Fabulous

This is my second card using the super cute stamp set “You’ve Got Style”.  This lady is just adorable and a super “smile” card maker.

 

You’ve Got Style, 143898

 

I did not use any designer series paper today.  That alone is unusual.  I also did not start with a color combination or even a plan.  I know, crazy!  I stamped the lady and her kitty and then started coloring.  I used markers this time instead of watercolor pencils.  I wanted a bolder look.

After I got everything colored, I then decided on a color scheme and knew that it had to be bright.  Therefore Real Red and Daffodil Delight seemed to fit perfectly.  Since I did not use any designer paper, I felt like it still needed some background design.  I looked around and came up with this stamp from Oh So Eclectic for a random background pattern.  I think it worked perfectly.  Also, I could not leave off some “Bling”.  So the necklace and the kitty each received a small rhinestone for some sparkle.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I very much appreciate hearing from you and reading your thoughts on the card.

You Are Amazing

I have another quick and easy card for you today.  The sets I have used are older, but wonderful, stamps that I have not utilized in a while.  So I dusted them off and came up with this card

 

All Things Thanks, 143097

 

This is such a sweet card and takes only a couple of minutes and minimum product to complete.  The color choice came from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack.  It has such unique patterns and is a group of the new InColors for 2017-2019.

The base and Ink are Dapper Denim with the variegated piece of DSP.  I bordered the DSP with a layer of Whisper White card stock and then bordered the Whisper White stamped piece with Dapper Denim card stock.  The flowers are from Flower Shop stamp set and have a matching punch.  I just stamped the center one with full strength Dapper Denim ink and then the other two are stamped after stamping off once.  If you haven’t tried that technique it is a great way to give some depth to your stamped collage type areas.

The sentiment is from All Things Thanks set.  Most of the sentiments in the set are a variation of Thank You, except for this one.  I use it frequently!  And to finish off the card, I added Clear Faceted Gems to the center of the flowers.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  The supplies are listed again at the bottom and clicking on a photo will take you directly to my Online Store.

An Eclectic Lovel

Today’s post is all about the beautiful stamp set Oh So Eclectic.  It is so nice, and has matching framelits.  Although I did not use them on this card.  At our OnStage for demonstrators earlier this year was where we got the first look at the new catalog.  This set is showcased on the front of the catalog.  I immediately loved it, and then I won it on one of the Prize Patrols.  I was , and am, a happy camper !!  Here is today’s card.

 

Oh So Eclectic, 143940

 

My color combination for today is a favorite of mine.  I just love Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.  But Old Olive is a great pair to any bright in my  opinion.

My card could probably be considered a little eclectic as well. I layered quite a bit of stamping.

  • The base card is Rich Razzleberry
  • The Sahara Sand layer is embossed with the Oh My Stars embossing folder
  • The Old Olive layer is stamped with one of the leaves from the set in Old Olive ink
  • I wrapped a strip of Fresh Fig ribbon around the Old Olive layer.  It really matches the Rich Razzleberry
  • For the top layer I inked a clear stamping block in the Sahara Sand ink and stamped it first
  • I then added the variegated leaves randomly
  • I stamped the solid / variegated full flower in Rich Razzleberry and then the outline flower in Memento Tuxedo Black ink over top
  • I add the Glitter Enamel Dots in the yellow to the center
  • I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White and punched it with the 1 1/4 circle punch
  • The Rich Razzleberry layer is punched with the 1 3/8 circle punch
  • I added an Enamel Shape in Old Olive to finish it.

 

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and will give this beautiful set a try.  There are so many ways to utilize it on cards and gifts.

I must continue to mention the awesome Christmas in July special for new demonstrators.  If you have ever considered becoming a demonstrator or just want an AWESOME deal, now is the time.  There are no penalties or pushes for you to remain a demonstrator.  You can purchase this wonderful starter kit with some super bonuses for 99.00 and receive almost 200.00 in products.  And like I said, there is no penalty to drop.  You can continue for a while and get our 20% discount or drop the next day.  You would become part of my group and I would give you all the support I can.  And you would become an InKing Royalty which is the best group out there.  Everyone is supportive and very creative.  You would love our group.  So if you are interested at all, please give me a call and let’s talk.

Yay for You!

My card for today is for a special occasion.  A good friend’s son just bought his first house.  Of course I have been intending to order the new Host Rewards set “In The City” which would have been perfect.  But since I have not ordered it yet I made do with what I had on hand.

Super Duper, 142874

 

These are my color choices for the card:

 

I wanted it to be more masculine, but have some brightness as well.  I believe it came out pretty well.  To add some texture to the card I used the Hexagon Embossing folder on the Sahara Sand card stock. The “YAY” is stamped in Always Artichoke on Very Vanilla and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies.  The Always Artichoke layer behind it is cut out using the next larger die from that set.

The Balloons are stamped on Very Vanilla in Always Artichoke and Crushed Curry and fussy cut out.  The are layered on top of each other and then raised with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  The “string” is Linen Thread.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set, “Super Duper”!  and is punched out with the Classic Label punch.  The layer behind it I hand cut.

And that is that for this card.  It came together very quickly, and is a card, and a layout that could be used for most any occasion.  That is a Win/Win to me !
