Well Wishes

I have shifted to the Subtle Family for today’s card.  I love the look of the subtle colors, I just tend to pair them with brighter colors.  Today though is all Subtle.

 

I am showcasing the Floral Essence Bundle.  I love punches and am so thrilled that a couple of the new bundles include punches in our new catalog.  This one is a flower builder punch.  It is just a single punch, so you don’t feel like you are wasting paper with the little pieces.  Although there are some great extras in those multi punches!

I stamped three of the tri-petal stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I colored them with the Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends combo, and punched them out.  You can easily do just two , but I wanted a bit fuller flower.  I added the new Perennial Essence Floral Centers instead of trying to stamp a center.  These fuzzy little guys are just so cute!!

The background is a leaf from the Floral Essence set as well.  It matches the Leaf Punch too, great deal! The Stitched Nested Labels are the focal point of this card almost.  I used the Subtle Emossing Folder before cutting out with the die.  I love all the stitching!  And it leaves the stitching on the negative also.  So you will be seeing a card with that negative soon as well.

The sentiment is from Dandelion Wishes and one of my favorites.  I am also thrilled that the White Flax Ribbon carried over.  It is “just enough” to finish the card.

Thank you for stopping in today.  Sorry for the later post.

Smile

I have a cute little card to share today.  But first I need to make a correction to a statement I made on yesterday’s notecard.  The Vanilla and Whisper White Note Cards ARE still available in the new catalog.  I mistakenly said they had retired.  YIKES!!!  I am so sorry, and thrilled that I was wrong.

Okay, on to today’s project.  I am sharing the Daisy Lane stamp set.  This is the new set that matches the original daisy punch, with the bonus of fitting the smaller daisy punch.  The small one is new and is a bundle to this stamp set.

 

 

After saying that the Daisy Lane has a new matching punch, I did not use it.  The flower I chose to use does not fit the punches.  It was not hard at all to fussy cut.

I stamped the ferns in Garden Green and the base of the flowers in Old Olive Ink.  The flowers are stamped in Mango Melody and then colored with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.  A super easy card to do.

One of my go to ribbons is the Linen Thread.  I wrapped it around the top two layers three times and then used three strands to make the bow.  Quick and easy and I love the texture that it adds.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you will return on Monday and hopefully I will have all of my new products put away and organized to work with.  I have been in a mess this week!!  Hopefully you have a wonderfully weekend.

Amazing Life

Today is one of those days that you can be happy and sad.  It is the last day of the current Annual Catalog.  Some items are still available in the Retiring List, and have even been discounted.  Tomorrow is the NEW Annual Catalog.  It has awesome new products and carry overs of others.  Personally, I cannot wait to start exploring the NEW stuff!!

Today I am saying a fond farewell to one of the stamp sets I really love.  It is Amazing Life.  I like the sentiments and the little “accessory” stamps.  The one I am sharing is a super easy card, my favorite type of card.

 

 

See how easy this card is?  It is the perfect card layout for large sentiments or designs that you want to be the focal point.  And it doesn’t hurt that the designer series paper is gorgeous!

I chose all the colors from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper Stack.  The base layer is Soft Sea Foam.  The frame for the DSP is Shaded Spruce.  I decided to go with a third color to frame the sentient layer instead of sticking with the Shaded Spruce.  So I added Pacific Point for that layer.  The sentiment is stamped in Shaded Spruce as well.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I really appreciate it.  As always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

The Anchor

I hope you all have received the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  I think it is awesome!!  I was thrilled with the carryover stamps and the new ones are wonderful.  If you do not have a catalog, and do not have a demonstrator, please let me know.  I would love to get one of these new catalogs to you.

Today I am sharing another of the new stamp sets.  It is the Sailing Home suite of products.  You do not need to be a sailing fan to love this set.  I have seen some gorgeous samples with it.  My card today is very simple layout.

 

Stampin' Up!, Sailing Home, Come Sail Away, Jackie Beers

I used the Sailing Home Bundle and the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  I love this sentiment.  It would work for many occasions, or just a Thinking of You!  The stitched look around the sentiment shape was a surprise to me. LOL!  I guess I had not looked very closely at the photos in the catalog.

The rope and anchor are part of the dies.  I love the embossing on the rope.  The anchor has the required loop at the top so you could tie rope through it.  I simply pushed the end of the knot through the hole to give that appearance.  Easy Peasy!!

The CLEARANCE RACK is getting an update today with some Price Reductions included.  Be sure to check it out.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I appreciate you visiting to see my projects.  I will NOT have a project for tomorrow, but will be back on Monday. I hope you have a great weekend.

Enjoy Life

I have a quick card to share that got a laugh from my Stamp Club last weekend.  I had given it another name though.  I named it “Kick Butt”.  They saw the humor.  This card is for those days that you really have to get up and get going.

 

 

I believe most of us can relate to this card in some way.  For me, I am trying to get into better shape and spend several mornings a week at the park walking the trails.  I feel like raising my arms and cheering when I am finished each day.  Can you relate in some way?

The hardest part of  this card is stamping the image to show behind the window.  I punched the circle with the 2 1/4 Circle Punch.  I then adhered the white piece on the inside of the card and made a small tick with a pencil to the top of the circle.  Since this set is photopolymer, it was easy to insure my background went a bit above that mark.  Then I knew where the silhouette needed to be.  Easy Peasy.

For a bit of depth to the front, I chose to stamp and then punch the Tailored Tag Punch and I turned it longways instead of side to side.  The sentiment may not be appropriate for everyone, but I love it.  It is the only thing raised with dimensional.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have an awesome Memorial Day Weekend.  Please remember those who gave their life for us.

Be Happy

I have a very simple and quick card to share today.  I have fallen back to the annual catalog for the Rooted In Nature stamp set.  I wanted to showcase some of the retiring colors and thought the nature set would be perfect.

 

Rooted In Nature, 146482

 

I used the Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist retiring ink colors as well as Granny Apple Green.  The leaf that looks sort of Blue is the Tranquil Tide.  It is really amazing how colors sort of change when next to other colors.

The sentiment is a favorite of mine.  I love the look it gives.  I flanked it with the Lemon Lime Twist smaller leaves and then made a tag from the Banner Triple Punch.  Of course I had to add something else.  So I decided on the Linen Thread.  You can never go wrong with that thread!!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I appreciate it and as always have listed all of the products used at the bottom of the post.
