Wonderful

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s InKing Royalty Blog Hop!  There was some fabulous birthday cards there to inspire you.  Today I have a much softer card.  It is my first time using the Wonderful Romance Suite of products from the Occasions Catalog.  They are gorgeous.  I made a simple card for the first one but have plans for a more elaborate card to try soon.

 

Wonderful Romance Bundle, 150592

 

The designer series paper I used in the center is a vellum and the photo definitely does not do it justice.  Oh My!!  It is really gorgeous.  I paired Fresh Fig and Petal Pink , which I never would have done without the DSP having it.

I know you may not be able to see it but the pink is embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  I really adore that folder in that it gives the “linen look” to paper.  Usually that is just enough texture without overwhelming.

The sentiment die cut is included in the bundle and is a bit different from the norm.  I like the frame it makes.  The little flowers above the sentiment are from a scrap of the vellum DSP.  Tiny flower dies are also included in the framelits that perfectly cut out the little flowers.  So of course I had to give it a shot.  They are so delicate looking!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I greatly appreciate it and love to read your comments.  As always the complete supply list is at the bottom of the page.

Birthday Cheer for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around BIRTHDAY. It’s always special to celebrate the birthday of someone you love, so handmade birthday cards are always fun to share. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I new I had the right idea for my card when Brian sent the banner for today’s Blog Hop.  The design in the banner is what I used on my card.  I had to laugh.  So, seeing that DSP you can imagine that my card is very bright and colorful.  Here it is.

 

Birthday Cheer Bundle, 150576

 

I love purple.  It was my Mother’s favorite color, so of course I did not like it in my young years.  But as those things go, it is one of my favorite colors now.  I definitely thought of her in making this card.  I used the Gorgeous Grape as the base, and I added the Dot To Dot Embossing Folder in Whisper White to separate the color a bit.  I then went crazy with color and layered two pieces of the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!

The sentiment is a combination of two different ones.  The main sentiment is from the Stitched All Around stamp set.  The added “It’s All About You”, which I thought was just perfect, is from Birthday Cheer. My original plan was to have that as the inside sentiment.  I thought about it a minute, and decided I liked it as an added bit of humor for the front panel.

The hat and cupcake are stamped in Gorgeous Grape and colored with Stampin’ Blends, using the DSP as a color source.  My post yesterday commented on the use of regular ink for coloring with the Stampin’ Blends.  Today’s pieces are another example of how well that can work!

I die cut the cupcake but had to fussy cut the hat.  They are both raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the card a bit more depth.  The Glitter Enamel Dots were the finishing touch.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Mary Fish at https://stampinpretty.com. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!  My complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

Lovely Lattice

Sunday afternoon I spent a bit of time making several cards.  I realized once I finished that I had done quite a bit of coloring with the Stampin’ Blends.  I do love to color.  Especially when I have enough time to really enjoy it.  In that situation it is rather relaxing and I like to see the completed project.

For this card I broke out the Sale-A-Bration set Lovely Lattice.  I went with soft colors, sort of.  The coloring is done in soft colors, but the card base is BRIGHT!  You know me, I love Bright.  See what you think.

 

Lovely Lattice, 149730

 

I layered the DSP so that there is not a lot of the base card, but just enough to blend with the center of the flowers.  The base is Pineapple Punch card stock.  I was afraid to go with Daffodil Delight in that it might just fade away.

I really enjoyed coloring the flowers here.  More so than I thought I would.  I got to practice my blending of the two shades of Stampin’ Blends.  It seems odd to me though.  The two shades show less blended in the photo than in real life.  Hhmmmm…….

I almost forgot to mention the stamped image.  I know it has been stressed that we should use the Memento Ink to stamp the image that we are going to use the Stampin’ Blends on so that it does not bleed through.  But….Stampin’ Up! did a video when the Blends were first debuting, that you can do a “No Line Coloring”.  Or a similar look as that.  It was done by stamping in the color you were going to color with.  Well, for today’s card, I stamped in Smokey Slate.  I wanted it to have a softer look than the Black of Memento Ink. I was thinking soft, Victorian, romantic, etc.  So I tried it and it worked wonderfully!  I hope you will give it a try as well.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will let me know your method for blending the shades.  And please return tomorrow for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop!  I cannot wait to see all the beautiful projects.

A NOTE about yesterday’s post:  I used a Paper Pumpkin stamp set on yesterday’s card.  You can see it HERE if you missed it.  But I failed to mention that in the March Paper Pumpkin box, subscribers will receive Not One, But TWO Stamp Sets!  A Bonus kit!  Yay!!!  The link to Paper Pumpkin is included in yesterday’s post or can be reached by going to my SHOP button at the top and scrolling to the bottom of the page.  As long as you subscribe by the tenth day of the month, you will receive that Month’s box.  Also, you can stop after one if you wish.  No problem at all.

You’re The Reason

Today I am sharing with you a Paper Pumpkin Kit card.  At least the stamps are from the February Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I did not use the cards provided.  I do not normally share these because if I have received mine, then it is too late for you to sign up to receive it as well.

If you are not familiar with Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up!, it is a monthly subscription and you receive a box that you open to discover the month’s surprise project.  Usually they are cards.  Occasionally they are some type of treat holder.  The January PP was a kit with quite a few pillow box treat holders that you decorate ( all decorations included).  Also, you receive one or more Stampin’ Spots of ink.  These are mini stamp pads.  Hint:  if you collect a number of these, they are perfect for use with the Stamparatus!  Or you can purchase the “Uninked spots” available in the Annual Catalog.

Anyway, I totally fell in love with this month’s kit and especially a few of the sentiments.  The one I used is probably an all time favorite sentiment.  Here is my card.

 

Gingham Gala 6X6 DSP, 148554

 

Is that not just about the best sentiment ever?  “You’re The Reason I Smiled Today”.  That just makes me smile to say it.  Maybe I am just being crazy with the rain and needed to smile!

The February Kit is about succulents.  This Succulent in a cup was just screaming to be colored.  And I had to use that sentiment, so here we are.  If you have any questions about Paper Pumpkin, please contact me.  It is a great way to get started as a new stamper.  I also know several people who bought the kit for themselves and a friend who lives away.  They Skype or FaceTime and put the kits together at the same time.  I love that idea!

The Paper Pumpkin link is on my Shopping page at the bottom, or my Demonstrator Page under events.  Or, you can get to my Paper Pumpkin link by clicking (This takes you to the protons and SAB is first, Paper Pumpkin is a just a bit further down the page)     Click Here For Paper Pumpkin

Thank you for visiting today!  I know this was a bit different in that you cannot purchase the stamped image or the sentiment.  But you can purchase the other pieces I used.  That list is at the bottom of the page.

I also wanted to remind you about the ULTIMATE BUNDLE!  Yes, it is the Join Promotion.  There is NO Obligation for you to do any more that order your Starter Kit.  And you have the option to get the Tote Bag, which this is the only way to currently purchase it is with a Starter Kit.  I promise it is a very nice bag.  I will use mine other than just to carry my supplies to workshops.  The next paragraphs explain the two Join Options.  I hope you will think about it and contact me so we can chat about it.

Amazing Day

I am back to my Bright colors today.  I love getting my inspiration from the Designer Series Paper.  I hope you do that, or will now give it a look next time you sit down to create.  If you have been following me for any amount of time you know that I lean towards the bright colors.  The DSP from Happiness Blooms is definitely right up my alley.

 

Incredible Like You, 148708

 

The stamp set, Incredible Like You, is not the set that is part of the Happiness Blooms suite.  I think it matches perfectly anyway!  The flower looks very similar.  I used the colors from the DSP to stamp the flower in my center panel.

The beautiful DSP is actually both sides of the same piece of paper.  I love when it works that way.  I feel like I am getting more bang for my buck.

This stamp set also has a matching Kit you can purchase to make some gorgeous cards.  I occasionally love those kits, but almost always really find the stamp sets to be perfect ones.  So please do not overlook a kit if you prefer making your own cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I do really appreciate your visits.  And if you ever have any questions about a project, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Measurements:

  • Base is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, folded in  half
  • 5 1/4 X 4
  • DSP is 2 X 5 1/4, and 1 X 4

Happy Valentine Day

I am sharing a sweet Valentine card for you today.  This one is actually for my sweet husband, but since he doesn’t look at these posts, I don’t have to worry about him seeing it. LOL!

 

Meant to Be Bundle, 150587

 

I used my favorite Valentine Bundle.  Although it would work wonderfully for anything that requires hearts.  I love the various dies and the ways they can be used.   I chose the All My Love Designer Series Paper to pair with the gorgeous hearts.  This pattern is my very favorite of the cute paper in that pack.  I love pairing it with the Balmy Blue.  A nice twist for a romantic look.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow after enjoying this sweet day.  As always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.
