Special Balloon

I have a lot of Designer Series Paper as I am sure you know.  I use it on almost all of my cards.  This time of year I begin to panic that I have too much with the Annual Catalog winding down.  I had the idea of going through the papers and doing a card using each of the packages.  Silly me, that really isn’t going to put a dent in it!!! 🙂

 

 

I love the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper.  So it was one of the first packages I picked up.  At first you may think it is only for romance or valentine.  I do not really think so.  It is for any card that comes from the heart.

I saw the sentiment in the Special Someone stamp set and just knew it was a perfect one for our current situation.  I think we all need some healing, even if we have not been sick.  The Special Someone stamp set has a matching set of dies that came out after the stamp set.  I really hope they carry over to the next Annual Catalog.  These critters are so adorable.

I stamped the squirrel and then masked the bottom section of the balloon.  It was too long for the layer I was planning.  I then used the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker to make the little loop through his hand.  The balloon is stamped and then cut out for a bit of depth.

The sentiment is in two pieces as I have them.  I just cut them out with the Classic Label Punch and staggered them in the corner.  You can see the left end is the normal Classic Label punched end. The right side I put back into the end of the punch to get the flag look.

The two different DSP are both from the From My Heart DSP.  I love using companion pieces to compliment each other.

It may not seem so, but the Mini Catalog and the Annual Catalog are both coming to an end.  June is not too far away.  The Retiring List should be out around the first of the month.  If there are any products from either catalog still on your wish list, now is the time to order.  Especially the outgoing In Colors, they tend to go quickly.

I know there are products that are on the Not Orderable List due to the shipping slow down from China.  I will let you know as soon as I do when items are available again.

Tower Adventure

I love to travel and my trip for this year was canceled even before the virus hit.  Today’s card is a nod to hoping we can get back to our normal routines soon.  I cannot wait to plan my next trip.

 

 

This card is a quick and easy one.  It would qualify as a #simplestamping card since it is simply paper and ink.  I wanted a quick and not a lot of layers card.  This one is somewhat of a collage, or my version of that, since I do not normally do that.

I used the Love What You Do background stamp behind the tower.  The tower is from the Parisian Beauty stamp set, as are all of the other stamps.  Everything except the background is stamped in Gray Granite Ink.  The background is Pool Party Ink.

I love quick and easy cards and this is definitely one of those.  Thank you for stopping in today.  Hopefully the weather and the virus doesn’t touch you this weekend.

Paper Pumpkin Love

The title for today is what I am doing.  I am giving some Love to Paper Pumpkin kits.  I do not normally share the Paper Pumpkin cards here because once I have received mine it is too late for you to sign up to get this one.  Although you can sometimes get some of the past kits.

I thought I would show you how great the stamp sets are and that you can mix them with other Stampin’ Up! products to make a totally different card.  Here is what I made.

 

 

I paired the March Paper Pumpkin Kit with some of the Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes from the Annual Catalog.  I stamped the images on a piece of smaller card stock then layered it to the notecard with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I truly adore these rain boots!!  They are what made me decide to share with you.  They are a two step stamp. The outline of the boot is one stamp and then the overall flowers are a separate stamp.  So the flowers could be any color making your boot colors whatever you feel like for the day.  I wish I could do that in real life!!  With all the rain over the last three months, and its raining again!, I would love to have a variety of rain boots!

I wanted the flowers to be a little bit behind the rain boots to show some depth.  When I stamped the outline of the rain boots, I also stamped it on a scrap piece of paper.  I used the Paper Snips to cut out the left one.  After I had stamped the color for the boot, I placed the mask over the outline and stamped the flowers.  I use just a tiniest bit of snail adhesive in one spot to hold my mask in place.

Paper Pumpkin is a once a month box of fun stamping that arrives in your mail box.  You can purchase one month as a test to see if you like it.  Or, you can purchase multiple months.  You an even give it as a gift to someone you know would love a crafting gift that arrives each month.  The cost is 22.00 a month plus tax.

Here is a link to a video about the next Paper Pumpkin.  Click HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I have included in the Supply List the items I used that are not part of the PP box.

Amazing Day for FMS427

I am late to the challenge for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge of this past week.  But when I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to play along.  I love using sketches as ideas.

 

Stampin' Up!, Rise and Shine, Cup of Cheer, Scripty, Label Me Fancy, Jackie Beers

 

Here is the sketch I used for this card.  I turned it to a landscape version.

 

From my usual cards, this is a very soft and less ornate type card.  But I love it.  The cup is from the Sale-A-Bration late release named Rise & Shine.  It pairs with the Cup of Cheer Dies that carried over from the Holiday Catalog.   The cup and tag are from the stamp set and dies.

The sentiment is from the stamp set as well.  I paired it with the Label Me Fancy Punch.  This is quickly becoming a favorite punch for me.  The background I used is the beautiful Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  It is really pretty nicely embossed hand writing and adds a subtle background with a bit of texture.

Thank you for stopping in today!  Remember that we are nearing the end of Sale-A-Bration.  A few items have already sold out.  I would love to assist you with placing an order or in joining my team and getting all of the great benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I have listed several of the current promotions for joining below.

Beautiful Difference

 

This is my first time playing with the Timeless Tulips Bundle.  I adore the shading that is built into the stamps.  It makes any stamping look very professional.

 

 

The stamps I have used are all included in the stamp set.  I used all of the flowers and only one of the stems and leaves.  I was trying to keep it simple.

The flowers are stamped using Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape. The leaves and stems are stamped in Old Olive.  The large flower is stamped onto the white layer, and additionally on a scrap that is punched out using the Tulip Builder Punch.  I like to stamp it so that you can see it underneath if it is not exactly lined up.

I stamped the sentiment onto Highland Heather card stock using Gorgeous Grape Ink.  The flower with the sentiment is Highland Heather so it is a tad lighter.  And I got to use the Label Me Lovely Punch!  I love the taller size.  This one is different from any of the other punches in that it is taller.  I didn’t necessarily need the height here, but it fits what I intended.

To finish off the card I wrapped the Tri Color Ribbon (shades of our gorgeous purples) around the layer.  I added the sentiment a bit to the left with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I also added a few pearls around just for some bling!

Thank you for stopping in.  I will be back before too long.  Please continue prayers for a speedy recovery.

Be Bold

Before I share my card, I want to give you a heads up.  I will have three cards to share this week.  They are the cards I made with my Stamp Club on Sunday.  But after these I will absent for a couple of weeks.  I am having a minor surgery this week. So Prayers are appreciated!!!  The downside is that my stamping room is in the basement and I will not be able to handle the steps immediately.  Please don’t give up on me, I will return before you really miss me!

Now for a Bold card today.

 

 

I really love the Dressed To Impress Suite of products!  I am not a Bold Lipstick sort of person, but I do really Love the Idea of the sentiment!.  Does that make sense?

I paired these stamps with the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper which is part of the suite.  I intended to use the opposite side that is Lovely Lipstick with white outlines of lipstick cases.  That was the plan right up until I flipped it over to add adhesive and saw the flowers.  I had layed it on top of the other layers and it just seemed a much better fit.  I really like the Scripty Embossing Folder showing behind the strip of DSP.

I cut the image layers using the fabulous Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  They are awesome!  You get six shapes like I used and four sentiment shapes.  I really hope these carry over to the next catalog.  They are so versatile.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I will go ahead and schedule the other posts for Wednesday and Friday.  Then I will be absent for a bit.  I am sure I will get restless and have to get down to my craft room sooner rather than later!!
