A Little Rain

I was so happy when Fable Friends carried over to the new Annual Catalog.  It reminds me of the childrens fairy tales of my youth.  Another of our Facebook challenges last week was simple an Animal.  I debated for just a minute and then went with the Goose from Fable Friends.

 

 

I paired a couple of stamp sets to make this card.  I love that the Goose is wearing a raincoat, so that was my starting point.  I wanted to give her a bright and cheery coat to wear in the rain.

I paired High Tide to get the puddled water and the grass.  The rain came from Birthday Backgrounds, and the sentiment from Love What You Do.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Framelits for the sign.  This is the trick again of cutting it out with the die leaving the excess length towards one end.   Then re-inserting it to the point you need for the proper length.  The stitching makes this so easy to do, as you simply press the stitches back onto the die.  That way you know it is lined up properly.

Enjoy Life

I have really enjoyed playing with the stamp set Enjoy Life.  The sentiments are spot on and the images are great for encouragement and sports.  We can all use those, or at least I can.  I must have subconsciously been thinking of The Tour De France when I made this card. LOL!!

 

Actually, this was for one of the challenges while Brian King was away on our Facebook group.  It was titled Transportation.  But it does totally fit the Tour De France.

The Swirl & Curls Embossing Folder seems to be a perfect match for the bicycle.  Like the wind and he is speeding along!  The color pairing is a bit different.  I just played around and came up with Merry Merlot and Pool Party.  I never would have thought to pair these two.  I like to peruse my ink pads and look across them for different combinations.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please return tomorrow for another new project.

Go For It

I am not sure why masculine cards are , or at least seem to be, hard to make.   What if masculine cards are our everyday cards just in a different color?  I believe the project I have for you today is one of those cards. It does not scream masculine, but the colors I chose lean that direction.

 

 

This is a really quick card to make.  The longest time part is the embossed basket weave.  And now after my opening paragraph, I can see this done in lighter colors and perfect for anyone.

I am not sure why I got on the masculine talking point.  Maybe because this card was intended for a male???  Who knows with me.  But I hope I have given you food for thought.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I really appreciate it and hope you will return tomorrow for another new project.

Magnolia Enjoy Today

I know there are a lot of Magnolia cards being shared.  I believe it is because the suite of products is just so darn beautiful!!  So I am sharing another one.  This is a pretty simple card in that there is not a lot to it.  I love the “clean” look of this one.

 

The gorgeous DSP is the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  It is the reverse (you know how much I love to use the reverse sides!) of the black background with the small flower above on it.  I layered it on a Whisper White piece to hopefully not have it blend into the base card.

The flower is stamped with Early Espresso Ink.  If you give it just a minute, then it does not bleed when you color it with the Stampin’ Blends.   I love using other than black for my outline a lot of times.  I have yet to have one bleed when the blends are used with it.  I colored the edges of the petals with the Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.  The leaves and stem are done using Light Mossy Meadow and Light Crumb Cake.

The sentiment is from the Good Morning Magnolia set as well.  Another plus in the column for this set is the sentiments. It is stamped in Mossy Meadow on Petal Pink card stock.  I punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch for a bit of a different shape.

Both the flower and sentiment are raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For just a touch of extra, I added a couple of the Gingham Gala Adhesive Back Sequins.  These are great for just a bit of extra texture but they don’t jump out at you!

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.  I have all of the supplies used at the bottom of the post.

Daisy Smiles

I have a very Happy card to share today.  At least I believe it is one that will make you SMILE!  I also added a technique that is not as often used as most.

 

I believe daisies are just Happy Flowers.  They seem to jump off of the card here.  I used both the old Daisy Punch and NEW Medium daisy punch today.  Each is two punched out flowers layered on top of each other.  I also added the Perennial Essence Floral Center to each flower.

The background is Direct Ink To Paper.  I simply opened the ink pad and drug it across the face of the Whisper White card stock.  When I have shared this technique before, it was done on Glossy card stock. This time I used just regular Whisper White, not even the Thick version.

The two colors I used are Pretty Peacock on the bottom and Seaside Spray on the upper section.  I went over it a second time in spots where I had lifted a tad early.  I like the light and dark that you get in doing this technique.  You do not want to press too hard.

The leaves are from the Daisy Lane Stamp set and are stamped in Granny Apple Green.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I love one stamp set cards!!  I stamped the Smile on a scrap of card stock and then only punched one end with the Pretty Label Punch.  I accomplished this by placing the piece of card stock inside the cutting area from the back.  It was smaller than the punch area, so it was easy to line up top and bottom and then just punch the one end.  I love playing with our punches to get different looks!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card base is 11 X 4 1/4
  • Layer is 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • Center layer is 3 7/8 X 3 3/8
  • White Center is 3 3/4 X 3 1/4

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.
