A Bright Celebration for FABFRI174

I am playing along with the FabFri174 challenge for today’s card.  It is a color combination that is right up my alley.

 

 

I used the Cup of Christmas Bundle for a non-Christmas card.  I hope you look at stamp sets the same way.  What else can I do that extends the life / usefulness of a stamp set.

Here is the Challenge icon:

Orange is one of my most favorite colors!  So when I saw the color combination I knew I had to play along.  It reminds me of the 60’s and 70’s and the large flowers that were on EVERYTHING!  I think I had jeans, tops, even a trash can in my room with the bright flowers.

For the background I decided to give detail to the Melon Mambo and added the Beads & Baubles Embossing Folder.  I believe it fit perfectly.  The tag is from the Christmas dies .  The sentiment fit perfectly and it is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.

I added a few of the epoxy drops to the background to give a little extra sparkle.  The ribbon holding the tag is actually Grapefruit Grove, but it works well with the Orange, or in my case, Pumpkin Pie.  The “steam” from the cups is from the Birthday Backgrounds stamp set.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • 5 1/2 X 8 1/2
  • 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • 5 1/4 X 4
  • 2 5/8 X 4
  • 2 1/2 X 4
  • 2 3/8 X 4

 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.  I will be sharing a card using the Christmas Rose Bundle.  I love the entire bundle, but it is great that you can purchase the pieces that you like and not the entire bundle if you do not want it all.  I did……and I LOVE the bracelet!!

Floral Birthday

The beautiful Purple Posy Ink is available to order now and I am celebrating that a card to showcase it..  I am pairing it with a few random pieces, that being from Stampin’ Up!, all work perfectly together.

 

Stampin' Up!, Floral Essence, Botanical Bliss, Perennial Punch, Perennial Essence, Jackie Beers

 

The star of the show is the beautiful Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  But it is closing followed by the Purple Posy Card Stock and Ink.  I love the softness of the color.  The background of the Purple Posy card stock really pulls the color from the DSP as well.

I stamped the Floral Essence flower stamp twice using the Purple Posy Ink and punch it out with the Perennial Punch.  They are layered together using a glue dot.  The leaves are punched from Mossy Meadow card stock using the Leaf Punch.

The sentiment is from the Botanical Bliss stamp set.   I added the small flower from the Floral Essence set to tie everything together.  The punch I used is the Story Label Punch.

This would be a great card to make multiples of.  With a bit of stamping and the great punches, it would be easy to have an assembly line going on this card.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I hope you will return on Monday for another new project.

Masculine Birthday

It can be quite difficult sometimes to make masculine cards.  I have a hard time with trying to personalize a masculine card when I know the person well.  I believe I have solved my problem for the time being.  The Rustic Retreat seems to be the answer.

 

 

I have found that most men like the outdoors to some degree or other.  And what is not to love when it comes to the mountains?  So I believe the Rustic Retreat has endless possibilities.  I tried to give the illusion of a cabin in the woods.  Of course I had to add an animal.  I chose the Black Bear as they are prominent in the Smoky Mountains.

The sentiment is from the Rustic Retreat set as well.  I added the sprig of pine in a stamped off Mossy Meadow and added the sentiment over top.  The two layers of the sentiment are the Timeless Label Punch and the Everyday Label Punch.  To ground the tag, I wrapped Linen Thread around several times and secured it on the back of the base layer.  I then wrapped several strands together and tied a bow.

I hope you will look to this stamp set and see if it meets any of your masculine, or anyone who likes the mountains, card needs.

Country Birthday

I have returned to the Annual Catalog for a birthday card for a dear friend.  I used the Daisy punches to make a Fall birthday card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Country Road, Daisy Lane, Daisy punch, Jackie Beers

 

I made the daisies a tad darker by stamping originally on So Saffron card stock in Merry Merlot Ink.  Before I punched them out, I sponged with Merry Merlot ink beginning in the center and working outward.

My photography with the new Iphone update has been very trying!!  The green is Pear Pizzaz and should look a bit darker than it appears in the picture.  This is my first card with the  Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  It is really pretty and shows up much better than it does here.

The background golden “weeds” are from the Country Road stamp set.  I cut the Very Vanilla layer using the  Stitched Rectangle Dies.  The flowers are layered using glue dots and then are adhered only in the center using glue dots as well.  The bushy centers are the Perennial Essence Floral Centers.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please remember that this is the LAST DAY to take advantage of the Designer Series Paper sale.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another new project as well as a preview of some other new products coming soon!!

ALSO……..Take a look at the new Stampin’ Trimmer!!  I have a photo below.  It is available to demonstrators beginning tomorrow as well.

Tropical Birthday

I have pulled out an Annual Catalog stamp set for today’s project.  I love the stamp set and matching dies, but have not used it in quite a while.

 

 

I actually did not use the Tropical Chic stamp set, but only the Tropical Thinlits.  I adore the look you get from the window of leaves.  I paired the window with a piece from the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.  I wanted soft colors for a relaxing look.  I pulled the Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam from the piece of DSP.

The sentiment is from the Parcels and Petals stamp set.  I used the flower from the set as well to create the background behind the sentiment.  The sentiment layer is from the matching Perfect Parcels Dies.  It fits perfectly onto the Timeless Label Punch!  How cool is that???  I love how SU products coordinate in unexpected ways sometimes.

The shimmery ribbon is the Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon.  It is a sleeper ribbon in my opinion.  It is very shimmery like the Seaside Spray ribbon in the Holiday Catalog.  And for the finishing touch, I added some Glitter Enamel Dots here and there.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I have been sharing both Fall and Year round stamp sets lately.  I am not sure what tomorrow’s project will be.  So come back to check it out.

A reminder that the Clearance Rack has been restocked and the DSP Sale is winding down!!

Perennial Birthday

I am showcasing the beautiful Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper today.  It contains such rich colors, but then pairs those with softer colors.  I focused on the softer ones for this card.

 

 

I paired the Petal Pink with the Night of Navy and I believe it worked.  The side splatter look is from Petal Pink ink stamped off using the Beauty Abounds stamp set.  I then used the Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker to flick ink on top of the stamped splatter.  So some flicking and splattering on the background!

To match the daisies in the DSP, I punched a flower using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I then cut it in half and used a glue dot to lay the pieces on top of each other.  I added a Glitter Enamel Dot as the center and attached the flower to the DSP panel with a glue dot.  The ribbon is just zigzagged and adhered with glue dots as well.

The sentiment is from the Botanical Bliss stamp set.  It is stamped using Night of Navy ink and punched out with the Darling Label Punch.  I punched it at an angle so that there are the ticket type corners at each end of the sentiment.  I then trimmed above and below for the different look of the tag.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I really do appreciate you visiting my blog.  I also love to read comments on what you think of my projects.  So if you have a minute, please leave a comment.

It is almost the end of the month, please remember the Designer Series Paper sale that is listed just below.  I know you will love this beautiful paper.
