Hug In a Mug

The card I designed for today is my first one with this super cute set from the Holiday Catalog called Hug In A Mug!  Who would not love a Hug In A Mug?  I adore that name.  The set seems to be a little bit of a sleeper set possibly due to the Coffee Cafe in the Annual and then the seasonal coffee in the Holiday Catalogs.  But this one is just really cute.  I hope you will give it a look.

This card is a CASE from one of the Make ‘n Takes we did at World Card Making Day.  I loved the mug of steaming cocoa with the sentiment.  I added the hearts to the Pool Party layer to go along with the sentiment also.  Because of the quilt and the sentiment, I believe this card could be used for so many occasions.  A hug and a quilt are just year round love!

I have paired the stamp set with the Quilted Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  This quilt pattern just emphasizes the Hug!  At least that is what I think of when I see a hand quilted quilt.  Also it brings back wonderful memories of my childhood!

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

These are the unlikely trio of colors I used for this card.  I would have never added the Lemon Lime Twist to these other two.  I did pull all three colors from the DSP.  And since it works in the DSP, it must work here.   I thought it would make the sentiment POP.  I hope you agree…..otherwise you are probably thinking I have lost my mind !  LOL…

Remember that today is the last day for the World Card Making Day Sale!!  It is also the last day to sign up for the October Paper Pumpkin….remember that October and November are coordinating this year.  I cannot wait to see what they are!

Give Thanks

I have another Fall card for today.  Although to Give Thanks is something that could be used year round.  I have used the “direct to paper” technique again to showcase this simple punched sentiment.

 

Stampin' Up! Labels To Love, Jackie Beers

Labels To Love, 144967

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I really like this color combination.  It is soft on the “direct to paper” technique but stands out on the card stock surrounding it.  And the Calypso Coral Ombre Ribbon is just a must have!!  It is gorgeous and so easy to work with.

If you missed my previous “Direct To Paper Technique” card, you can see it HERE.

The sentiment is from the Label To Love set.  This set has sentiments for a variety of holidays and they all fit the Everyday Punch.  The punch is a bundle with the Merry Labels set, but it works with both sets.  A double winner!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card base is Crushed Curry cut 8 X 4 and folded in half
  • Pear Pizzaz layer is 3 3/4 X 3 3/4
  • Glossy card stock layer is 3 1/2 X 3 1/2

You Make Me Smile

I seem to be on a Fall card making theme.  Today’s card is from one of the most versatile stamp sets, or the entire suite, that Stampin’ Up! has.  It is the Color Theory Suite and the Colorful Seasons Bundle.  I love everything in this suite, but especially the bundle.

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I just adore these delicate leaves from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits part of the bundle.  And with the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets they are a piece of cake to adhere.  After I placed the leaves it seemed like I really didn’t need anything else!

I sponged the background of the leaves and then splattered the open space.  I know technically you are supposed to do things in 3’s, but I only added 2 of the Enamel Shapes.  I just wanted to highlight the sentiment.  I say “rules are meant to be broken” …..in some cases!!

Thank you for visiting today!  I appreciate your comments very much.

Enjoy The Little Things

Today I have CASED Julie DiMatteo from her Wednesday Night Facebook Live.  If you have not viewed any of Julie’s videos, please go to YouTube or her Facebook page and check them out!  She is awesome and has quite a few 3-D items. Look for ThePaperPixie.com.  But Wednesday was the Watercolor Smooshing technique.  And I have to say that it is addicting!!

Life Is Short So Squeeze It

I had the Lemon Zest Bundle on my first order from the new Annual Catalog.  I fell in love with the sentiments immediately.  Then I didn’t get around to using it until recently.  Previously I did a quick card using our Note cards and Envelopes.  However, this card is pretty quick to make as well.

For today’s card, I stamped the lemon slice on Whisper White with So Saffron.  I debated on just stamping off, but thought the lighter tone would do better.  I then stamped the two sentiments on each end of the Whisper White strip, and then layered the three strips together.

I used the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers to splatter old olive onto the sliced lemon sheet and daffodil delight onto the sentiment strip.  Other than stamping and punching out the lemon and leaves….that is it!  See I said it was quick and easy!!

COLOR COMBINATION:

MEASUREMENTS:

The strips are 2 X 5 1/4, 2 1/4 X 5 1/4, 2 1/2 X 5 1/4

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.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I very much appreciate your comments.  Please let me know if I can assist you with anything.  The supplies I used are listed below and clicking on a picture will take you directly to my Online Store.
