Kitty Halloween

I am not a huge Halloween person.  But I love the Fall colors associated with it as well as Black Cats!  I have had four solid black cats in my life and they have all been the sweetest and easy going.  So when I saw the Ghoulish Goodies and the Black Cat, I knew I had to have it.

 

This is another one stamp set card, which I love.    I paired the stamps with the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper stack.  This paper has color patterns to fit all occasions / seasons.  But plaid is a year round pattern for me!

The ribbon is the Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the Annual Catalog.  It is actually a carryover from last year’s holiday catalog.  The bling is from the Holiday rhinestones.

Awesome for September Pals Blog Hop

 

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects where “It’s the Sentiment that Counts.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

The theme of this month’s blog hop is perfect for me.  I love sentiments.  My favorites are mixed fonts,  different sizes, sayings that are for occasions, as well as some that are just for fun.  Today’s card is in the Just For Fun category with a side of encouragement.

 

And if you cannot tell from my usual cards, I LOVE Bright Colors!!  The mix of this AWESOME sentiment from the Ridiculously Awesome stamp set with the brightness of Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper is a perfect match in my opinion!

The sentiment is heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  It is stamped using Versamark Ink on Granny Apple Green card stock.  The sentiment is die cut using the border from Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  I love the detail around the edges.

The added addition of the butterflies shows my love of the DSP.  I had a strip left from cutting the paper and wanted a way to use it.  I chose the little butterfly from the same die set and cut it so each one showed different colors from the DSP.  And of course, you have to have some Bling!!  So each butterfly received a little rhinestone so they could shine a little more.

My card is not at all technically difficult.  This is a bright and fun card that I hope makes everyone simply SMILE!!

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on October 14th when our theme is “Tag, You’re It!” Participants will showcase tags or 3D items that will be great for gifts for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.

Light Me Home

The Light Me Home set is such a classic winter scene that I knew I had to have it.  Then trying to design the card was a bit more troublesome.  When I saw the current Global Design Project Color Challenge, it made me immediately think of this set. And I had been asked about a Skinny card for a class I have coming up.  My idea for using the color challenge on the sky fit perfectly for a tall and skinny card.  This way I have a lot more sky to play with.

 

 

The Global Design Project Challenge is a Color Challenge.   #GDP267

I really love these colors and they fit perfectly for the sky with my Light Me Home stamp.  I sponged all three colors beginning with the Balmy Blue at the top.  I overlapped each one just a bit.  I also stamped the image in Misty Moonlight.

I could have added more color to the stamped area, but decided I liked the “snowy” look with the beautiful sky above. It did need a bit of Something else.  So I added a few snowflakes in Balmy Blue to the night sky.  The snowflakes are from the Flight of Fancy stamp set.

The sentiment is from the stamp Light Me Home set also.  I stamped it with Highland Heather on the Balmy Blue card stock.  The layers are die cut using the Layering Circles.  I added a single Pearl for a touch of glimmer and as an acknowledgement of the snow.

Thank you for stopping in today.  Please return tomorrow for  Pals September Blog Hop.

Holly Christmas

I have a #simplestamping card to share with you today.  There is no fancy designer paper, just stamps, ink, paper and a punch.  Although I did add Stampin’ Blends for coloring.

 

Something I did not mention is that in addition to being a #simplestamping card, this is also a one stamp set card.  I cannot say it is a bundle however.  The stamp set is the Christmas Gleaming set that was a bundle last year with the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.  It all came back this year as one of Stampin’ Up!’s Returning Favorites sets.  Sadly it is not still a bundle so no 10% discount.   But I will say it is still definitely worth the price.

I used a bit of a different color combination for today’s card.  I used Old Olive, a forever favorite green, but paired it with Poppy Parade.  It is still a red, just a sort of orangy red!  I do love how the two look together though.

The holly is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored using both of the Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends.  I then stamped the ornament on the card, as well as on scrap paper.  I went ahead and colored both.  I always do that.  The ornament is stamped in Poppy Parade Ink and colored using the Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  The crown of the ornament is colored with Poppy Parade blends.  The ornament is attched using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The finishing touches are the bow and the Merry Christmas.  I stamped the Merry Christmas and then used my Paper Snips to cut it down.  Since they are straight lines, it is not a difficult cut.  The bow is from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Pack.  It is attached using a glue dot.

Thank you for stopping in on your Monday.  I hope you have a great week ahead and will come back tomorrow for another new project.

Angles Hello

I am sure you looked at the title a couple of times wondering what I was saying.  Even I looked at it and thought it was Angels instead of Angles.  LOL!!  I just purchased the Stitched Triangles dies and was just playing with them to see what I came up with.  This is the card I completed.

 

Stampin' Up!, Forever Fern, Stitched Triangles, Forever Greenery, Jackie Beers

I mixed several products together for this card.  The background is the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  It of course is what determined most of my color choices.

To pair with the DSP, I used the Forever Fern Bundle.  These stamps are so gorgeous that I cannot stop using them.  The images are so crisp and clear.  I stamped and die cut the one piece using Pretty Peacock Ink.  I then just die cut the other pieces from both Pretty Peacock and Pear Pizzaz.  These dies have a bit of definition to them as well.

The triangles are all cut from Whisper White.  As I said, I was just playing around in the beginning.  After laying them down into this final pattern, I decided I liked the contrast of the White.  Especially since it shows on the stamped and die cut greenery.  To me,  the triangles pair well with the pattern in the DSP.

As the finishing touch, I colored the Whisper White Crinkle Seam Binding ribbon with the Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend.  It colors easily and very quickly.  The ribbon soaks it up fast.  And best of all, it dries almost immediately!  The last touch is one of the 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots in Pretty Peacock.  I will confess tht I thought they carried over.  Sadly, they did not.  Even more sadly, they were on the Clearance Rack refresh.  But I just checked and they are already gone.  There are quite a lot of great deals there still.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Be sure and read the new Starter Kit Special below.  It is another awesome deal for you to get a taste of Stampin’ Up! a bit closer and get a discount for your Wish List!!!  And before I go….a final note that You Can Add the New Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to your Starter Kit!  So you would be getting it , for under $99.00 !!

Ornate Daisy

I have a pretty and quick card to share today.  You know how much I love Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series paper.  Today’s card is all about one of those DSP packs.  I chose to highlight the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper and the Ornate Style stamp set, as well as the Gold Foil which coordinates.

 

 

I love the simple, yet elegant, look of this card.  This piece of the DSP is my favorite from the pack.  I paired it with Mint Macaron card stock and a piece of the Gold Foil to coordinate with the foil in the paper.

The daisy is from the Ornate Style stamp set.  That single daisy is simply perfect all alone.  I chose not to add a sentiment on the front of this card.  I believe the simplicity of this card would work well for a number of occasions.  So this way, I just add the sentiment needed to the inside and I’m ready to go.

Here are the measurements for this card:

  • base card is 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, scored and folded in half
  • white layer is 5 1/4 X 4
  • DSP layer is 5 X 3 3/4
  • Foil layer is 2 1/4 X 3 1/4
  • Daisy layer is 2 X 3

 

I don’t know how you are, but I love having ready to go cards on hand.  I appreciate you stopping in today.  I have all of the supplies used listed at the bottom of the page.

Below is the information on Starter Kit Special for September.  I actually began my time with Stampin’ Up! as simply a Stampin’ Up! Enthusiast.  I joined for the discount to support my wish list!!  I stayed in that position for about ten years, then decided to try to make a business from it.  Either of these choices are fine with me and with Stampin’ Up!.  The choice is all yours to make with no pressure to even continue after purchasing the Starter Kit.  The Kit is actually just the Best Bundle available!  So I would love to talk with you about joining my Team.  In the meantime, read through the add ons for the September Special below.
