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.

Poppies

This is the second card from last Sunday’s Stamp Club.  I really adore these poppies and especially the dies.  I have made a similar card previously.

 

I paired the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper with the Poppy Moments Dies.  The flower  base is the DSP and the outline is the Poppy Parade card stock.  I layered this with leaves cut out in Old Olive.  The background stripes are a reverse side of the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper.  It is layered onto a piece of Basic Black card stock.

For a touch of brightness, I added Granny Apple Green ribbon.  I think it is just the right amount of bright to compliment the Poppy Parade card stock.

Thank you for checking in today.  I will have another card ready to post on Friday.  I will try to pop in and let you know when I will be back after that.

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!!

Little One

I have a mixture of colors and textures for you today.  I have been seeing quite a few cards with small squares layered on top of each other.  That gave me the idea for this card.  Although it is not squares at all.

Stampin' Up!, Wittycisms, Stitched So Sweetly, Jackie Beers

 

My card and the square idea resulted in rectangle shapes.  I paired the Stitched So Sweetly scalloped rectangle dies (the largest and next size down) with the second larger of the sentiment dies.  This set of dies is so versatile because of those varied size sentiment dies!  I am in love with them.  They are actually a Bundle with the So Sentimental stamp set.

I paired the Witty-cisms stamp set with the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper to get some bright colors.  The baby carriage is colored in softer colors though.  I also paired all of this with the Metallic Bakers Twine Sequin Combo from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  The two baker’s twines and the sequins are FREE with a $50.00 purchase.

Thank you so much for checking in this week.  I hope you enjoyed the projects.

So Proud

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  There were some great ideas for birthday cards.  You can see my post by clicking HERE.   And you can go thru the full hop from my page.

Today I am sharing the Morning Star stamp set.  It is a sweet stamp set that pairs with the Stitched Stars  Dies that were part of the Holiday Catalog.  The stamp set they were paired with in that catalog retired, but the dies carried on.  I love that Stampin’ Up! is extending the life of dies and punches.  That is so nice on our pocket books!  Here is today’s card.

 

 

The flowers on the card are the morning glory flowers and vines.  Some may consider them weeds actually.  I always thought they were pretty first thing in the morning.  I used the Rococo Rose for the flowers and Pear Pizzaz for the vines.  They are my flowers and don’t have to be the correct color.  I love the Rococo Rose.

I used the flowers as background for one of the larger of the Stitched Stars dies.  The center star is two sizes smaller.  I stamped the star stamp with the Rococo Rose as well.  The stars are raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals for depth.

I have loved the Scalloped Linen Ribbon since it debuted.  I just never seem to have the proper place for it.  Today’s project is Perfect!!!  I paired the ribbon with the new Label Me Fancy Punch.  I punched out the sentiment, which is from the stamp set.  I also used the ribbon slot that is part of the punch.  There are guides on the bottom of the punch on each end of the slot to assist you in lining it up.  I was very pleased at how easy it worked.  I usually have a backing for my sentiment layers.  With the ribbon slides and the sentiment like a buckle, I did not feel it needed a backing.  You will see me using that punch a lot more now that I have played with it!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you liked today’s card and will return tomorrow for another one.

February InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate birthdays, so prepare yourself for a wonderful mix of celebratory cards. 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.

My card is for celebrating.  I have made it as a birthday card, but it would work for a variety of events.  I cased it from page 50 of the Mini Catalog.  The thing that first caught my eye, was the Circle Tab Punch for the pull out tab.   I have not used it lately except for tabs for my catalogs.  The thought of using it on a card again was exciting.  I do love my punches.

 

 

And here is a picture of the inside of the card.

 

 

In the catalog, this card is an invitation.  I rarely need invitations, but loved the pull out element.  I  liked the card and layout so much I actually made two of these cards .  Both are using the Under The Umbrella Bundle of products.  The only change in the two are the colors I used.  Here is the second version.

 

 

For both cards, I used the Under The Umbrella Bundle.  This bundle is a stamp set and punch.  I also used the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper for the umbrella on the pull out piece. The flower is punched from the Pleased As Punch DSP also using the Small Bloom Punch from Sale-A-Bration.

After I adhered the pocket together, I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners of the pocket.  For the purple card, I also rounded the corners of the insert.  I did not do that on the Pool Party version.  I think I like the insert rounded best.

The umbrella on the inside of the Pool Party card is the multi colored flower one.  The “Love” tag on both is from the Cup Of Cheer Dies ( which happily carried over!) I love that tag.  And the next SAB release for March has a new matching stamp set for those dies!  Woohoo!

This card is actually very quick to do.  I have two pictures and directions for cutting the angle.  I will place that beneath the Blog Hop List. Some people may not be interested in the how to make it.  Shocking I know!!LOL!!  The supplies I have listed are for the purple version.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Robin Myren at Songbird Designs by Robin. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Card Directions:  The card stock is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4, like a normal card.  After scoring, but before folding, place on the trimmer with the scored line on the cutting track.  Use the ruler on the blade holder and score down 1″.  Turn the card the opposite direction and cut from the end of the first cut across the card.  You are removing a 1″ section from the top of the front piece of your card.  Next, angle the cut edge up above the cutting track to that 1″ mark on the cutter.  See picture:

 

You can see from the picture what I meant about cutting the 1″ section away from the top of that right side.  After getting the top edge lined up at 1″ mark, make sure the score line cut intersection is on the cutting track.  Now cut that piece off.  See picture.

 

Now you have your angled card.  I used Tear & Tape around the bottom and outside edge (place it on the top layer).  The inside white layer measures 3 3/4 X 4.  4 is the height.  Place that piece inside the pocket, well away from the tape, when securing the card.  This insures you have a little extra room for ease of inserting and removing the tabbed card.  If I have confused you…..please contact me and I will be happy to explain further.
