Rainy Weather Friends

We are having too much rain and some flooding, but there is beauty even in the bad.  That is my thought for this card.  I hope you agree.  I went with several different looks on this one card.

 

 

I layered several different colors along with some pieces that are die cut and others that are cut out with Paper Snips.  The frame for the rain is die cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I chose Blackberry Bliss from the Lilly Impressions Designer Series Paper, a FREE Sale-A-Bration item.

I stamped directly on the Lilly Impressions DSP with Memento Tuxedo Black and punched it out with the Umbrella Builder Punch.  The handle is stamped on Pretty Peacock and punched with the same punch. The rain boots are stamped and fussy cut.  They are then colored with Stampin’ Blends.

The background DSP is the opposite side of the DSP the umbrella is punched from.  It has dark to light streaks in it.  The card base is Pretty Peacock, another color from the Umbrella DSP.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Tomorrow’s post will be part of the InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  I hope you will check it out and hop along with us for some great projects and ideas.

A Friend Like You

The way time flies it seems, I decided I should get with Valentine Cards.  It will be here before we know it.  And I am enjoying the two heart stamp sets in the new Mini Catalog that just debuted.  The matching heart punch pack with scalloped and straight cut hearts are fabulous.  Here is a look at a quick and easy Valentine card.

 

 

The colors in the gorgeous DSP are Flirty Flamingo and Real Red.  I went with the Flirty Flamingo as a backdrop and focal point on the heart.  I also used the new Heart Doilies behind the Flamingo heart.  The doilies are adorable and come in both colors also.  They will fit perfectly in the heart shaped tins in the suite of products.  I will share a project with those soon.

I stamped the sentiment inside the heart and then punched it from the DSP using the scalloped heart punch.  I layered it onto the doily heart and raised them with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  The strip of card stock was just in place of a ribbon as something to ground the heart.  This is a quick and easy trick when you may not have a matching ribbon or just want to use a scrap of DSP or card stock.

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you will stop back tomorrow for another new project.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

Poppy Love

I am sharing the Painted Poppy Bundle today.  I saw it at Stampin’ Up! OnStage in Atlanta last month, and I have seen other demonstrators’ cards.  Playing with it myself was still amazing!  The stamps and dies, as always, are awesome.

 

 

Poppies are very popular this year.  I have been seeing them everywhere.  I was looking at the little pocket calendars at Dollar Tree the other day and there were a couple with different poppy designs.

The border across the bottom is only half that size.  I stamped it twice.  For the large poppies, I die cut the solid flowers usig the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series paper.  The coordinating color is Poppy Parade (wonder if that was planned a while back/) so of course my outlines are in that color.

The leaf is cut from Mossy Meadow, another coordinating color for the DSP.  I secured it under the large flower and left the top part free to move around.  The sentiment is from another new stamp set, Positive Thoughts.  All of the sentiments are wonderful.  I used Old Olive card stock as the dividing layer as well as the Old Olive Stampin’ Blend for the border flower stems.  I liked the lighter color to pair with the Poppy Parade.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I have a candy treat to share tomorrow.

Country Love

I am going to attempt to share only Fall and Thanksgiving cards this week.  Christmas is almost upon us and I don’t want to skip over Thanksgiving.  Although, I believe most of us have done that already.

 

 

I am thrilled with how this card came together.  My “Go To” Fall designer series paper has been the Come To Gather DSP.  I love every single piece in the package.  And both sides of each piece!  This is a print that I do not believe I have used previously.

The stamp set is the Country Home from the Annual Catalog.  I was thrilled that it carried over and it pairs so well with the Gathering Leaves in the Holiday catalog.  Everything except the “LOVE” is from the Country Home stamp set.  I stamped and then used a variety of Stampin’ Blends to color the arrangement.

The beautiful LOVE is from the So Many Stars stamp set.  There is a LOVE in the Country Home set, but this one had previously caught my eye.  I really adore the font of this one.

Thank you for dropping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another new project.

Tea Together

The Tea Together and Tea Time Dies were never a bundle but are a super pairing of products.   It gives a very classic scene for a card.

 

 

I paired the sweet products with the softest of the Stampin’ Up! colors.  It is the Purple Posy.  Sadly, there are still failed results for the Purple Posy Ink.  So Stampin’ Up!, with their great care for quality, has decided to give up on the Purple Posy Ink.  All of the other Purple Posy products will still be available.  The Stampin’ Blends works beautifully as you can see in the tea cup.

I stamped the tea cup in Highland Heather and then colored parts with the Purple Posy Stampin’ Blend Light.  The flower is stamped in Smoky Slate and colored with the Purple Posy, Light Highland Heather, and Light Old Olive Blends.

The tag is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays and is puched using the Classic Label Punch.  After punching, I put the one end back into the edge of the punch to make the flagged end.

The background designer paper is from the In Color Designer Series Paper for 2019-2021.  I used two different patterns of the Purple Posy DSP.

Thank you very much for checking in today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another new project.

Mosaic Single Layer Card

 

A challenge I recently participated in was to do a Single Layer Card.  That means to stamp directly on the folded base of the card.  You can add an embellishment, but no other layers.  These can be hard to do when you are accustomed to multiples layers plus a sentiment layer.  I found a great stamp set to use though.

 

 

I chose the Memorable Mosaic stamp set and used the Weeping Willow looking tree.   I love the definition these stamps give.  I stamped the top with Mint Macaron Ink and it looks like it is two different shades of color.  It is not, it is the stamp itself.  LOVE!!!!  The tree trunk is the same way.  It is stamped in Soft Suede Ink.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Here’s A Card.  I love that wording.  I believe I will turn this card into a 3 X 3 with the same sentiment and use them as Random Acts of Kindness cards to hand out.

The only embellishments are the Noble Peacock Embellishments.  The color compliments the Mint Macaron of the leaves.
