All Adorned

I have a quick little 4 X 4 card today to share with you.  I cannot believe Sale-A-Bration is almost over.  It has exceeded sales goals for Stampin’ Up!, and unfortunately resulted in quiet a few sets selling out.  I hate that, but then I thought of a lot of new companies, even QVC, where items are a limited number.  With these , if you want it get it, because it may/will be gone soon.  That has definitely been the case this year with SAB.

Stampin’ Up! has come out with additional sets to cover the empty slots and the one I am sharing today is one of those sets.  At first glance the All Adorned sets looks very plain.  The magic appears once you ink it up and find all of the possibilities.  Today’s card was quick and easy to line up.

 

All Adorned, 149728

 

I began stamping with the corners and did not even use the Stamparatus!  It was so easy to do that I did not think about it until I was almost finished.  I love photopolymer stamps for this reason.  You can see pretty much exactly where you need to stamp.  I began with the 3 7/8 width and stamped the pieces to touch each other and then went back to trim the bottom.  I did not have a plan when I started.  That happens quite often lately!

The sentiment is part of the stamp set and it what originally drew me to the set.  I think that is a great statement for so many purposes.   I punched it with the Everyday Label Punch and then used my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker to go around the edge to give it some color.  I think this is a great way to differentiate when you have white on white.

Thank you very much for Hopping with me yesterday!  I hope you liked the Easter card.  And I really appreciate you coming back today.  I know my posts are not going to my Facebook Blue Line page for some reason.  I am working on that.

His Grace for Pals March Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ March Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because ”Spring has Sprung” – at least on our blog hop if not outside! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

In looking for a stamp set to meet the Spring theme, I kept coming back to the set His Grace.  I love the flowers, that was what drew me to the set when I first saw it.  So I went with my instinct and made a very soft Easter card.  You can’t get more Spring than this.

 

His Grace, 148676

 

This is a really easy card to replicate as there is not a lot of stamping.  The floral is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  The Tufted layer is just a soft touch I chose instead of using DSP which my detract from the floral.

The die cut circle is from Wonderful Floral Framelits.  It is a simple WOW that I love!  The different look it gives to a simple circle (or it has a touch of an oval maybe?) is a nice change.  I popped it up with some dimensional and added a single pearl for some bling.

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! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 10, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Families First” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Thank you for visiting my page today!  I hope you will come back soon.  I have listed all of the products I used at the bottom of the post.  Now, on to the next blog in the list….Enjoy!!

Happy Tails

I hope that you will see the humor in today’s card.  If you have followed me for very long, you will know that I love animals.  When I first saw the new dog and cat stamp sets (Happy Tails and Nine Lives) in the Occasions Catalog, there was never a question of would I purchase them.  I got them as quickly as I could.  I love the stamps, but the sentiments are fabulous as well.

My favorite sentiment is the paw print, and next is “Keep Calm and Wag On” .  We have had several dogs over the years and the last two were Labs.  And they wag ALL The Time!!!  So that was my beginning to this card.

 

Happy Tails Bundle, 150631

 

I really hope the tails look like they are wagging!!!  At least that is my intention.  Sometimes my vision doesn’t always work for others.

To make my wagging tail, I stamped and punched out the puppy.  I then stamped two more tails on scrap paper and fussy cut them.  I used glue dots to place them and then layered the puppy over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This one made me smile and I hope it did you as well.  I have listed all of the supplies at the bottom of the post.  Please consider the join promotion going on now.  The “JOIN” is really just a giant bundle you purchase.  There is NO requirements or pushing for you to ever place another order.  If you love Stampin’ Up! products as I do, I hope you will give me a call and let’s talk about the options.

Birthday Cheer

Today’s card is a little variation of a simple card I have done several times.  For this one I added some more layers to better match the beautiful designer series paper.

 

Birthday Cheer, 148604

 

Do you recognize the folded back corner from previous cards?  It is a super easy, but cute card to make.  Because of the blues and tan in the DSP, I decided to do more layers.  It is not exactly as I envisioned, but I am happy with the results.

I used the Butterfly Duet Punch to punch the cupcake butterfly from another piece of this gorgeous DSP.  Unfortunately it sold out almost immediately, but the wonderful news is that it is going to carry over to the Annual Catalog.  So it will be back available in June.  WooHoo!!!  I adore punches.

Thank you for visiting today.  I have been slacking lately on my posts but will be back to normal this week.  Sometimes life just gets a bit hectic!  I have included all of the products at the bottom of the post.

Remember that Sale-A-Bration is winding down.  It ends on March 31.  And the join promotion where you can get the Fabulous Carry Tote Bag will end then as well.  I truly do love that tote.  If you have been considering joining Stampin’ Up!, I would love to talk with you about it.  It was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Notecard Birthday

Today I have the ultimate in simple cards for you.  Something I have mentioned before are the packs of notecards in the Occasions Catalog.  They are easy to overlook but are on the bottom of page 26 with the Happiness Blooms Memories and More Card Pack.  They are the Happiness Blooms Memories and More Cards and Envelopes.  There are small note cards that measure 3 X 4 and large ones measuring 4 X 6.  You get 10 of each size plus 10 envelopes of each size!  That is a WOW for $8.50.

I took the small notecards and made a quick and easy birthday card.  All I needed was one stamp set and a punch.  Here you are!

 

Stampin' Up!, Happiness Blooms, Amazing Life, Jackie Beers

Happiness Blooms Notecards , 148806

 

The front of the notecard is Night of Navy with a white inside.  I coordinated the yellow layer to match the birthday candles and the Happy Birthday on the inside.  Here is the inside view:

 

It was very simple to punch the circle from the front.  I layed the stamp down to see which punch fit it and determined the 2″ Circle Punch was the perfect fit.  I then centered it on the front and punched.  I stamped through the hole to insure the perfect fit.  That is so easy to do with the photopolymer stamps!  I then stamped the sentiment on the inside with the Daffodil Delight but low enough to not be seen from the outside.

The front sentiment is from the Amazing Life stamp set as well as the cake and Happy Birthday.  So a two product card!  A Win/Win to me.  I hope you think so too.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I have all of the products at the bottom of the page.

Part of My Story

I hope you have looked at the new releases from Sale-A-Bration.  Plus, the Organdy Ribbon was restocked and is available, while supplies last!  But one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration sets is the Part of My Story stamp set.  I really love the sentiments.  For today’s card I have mixed some Annual Catalog products with that stamp set.

 

Stampin' Up!, Part of My Story, Love What You Do, Gingham, Story punch, Jackie Beers

Part of My Story, 149719

 

I LOVE this sentiment!  I feel this way about so many people and I believe it would make for an “anytime” type card.  Or as a pick me up type card.  Did you notice the new punch with the sentiment?  It is the new release companion products to SAB.  It is the Story Label Punch.  Another great Punch, YAY!!

The stamp set I used is the Love What You Do stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  It is a favorite just because of the simplicity.  And I don’t think you can go wrong with a flower over a soft background.  The splatter is a technique of flicking the tip of a Stampin’ Write Marker with the inside of it’s lid.  It takes just a bit of careful practice and you will love it.

For this card I paired Powder Pink and Poppy Parade.  I wasn’t sure at first but I am happy with the finished product.  I do love playing around with all of the Stampin’ Up! colors.  I am often surprised at what looks good together.  To add to the colors, the Ombre Ribbon is actually Calypso Coral!  Surprise 🙂

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for a new project.
