Someone Special

You could say I am carrying over yesterday’s Valentine Blog Hop with InKing Royalty.  I have made a sweet and loving card using the new stamp set Special Someone.  It is an accurate name for an adorable set.  It reminds me of the Nature’s Beauty stamp set that was in the Holiday Catalog and carried over.

 

Stampin' Up!, Someone Special, Stitched So Sweetly, Bird Ballad, Jackie Beers

 

This card was made with the First Sketch from Mary Fish’s Stampin’ Pretty Sketchbook.  #sps001.  She shared the sketch on 01/13/2020.  Here is the sketch.

I noticed in the Mini Catalog samples for Special Someone that the Squirrel and the Rat are facing each other.  And even though I really, really, really dislike rats or mice, I do love the set. So they were my little love couple.  The lovebirds are cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I love the scalloped edge.  And with the stitching they are very easy to adjust the size, which is what I had to do to shorten the piece for fit the couple.

I used a solid piece of Calypso Coral card stock behind the loverbirds and layered it on top of a great piece of DSP from the Bird Ballads Designer Series Paper.  The Burlap Ribbon and Linen Thread are perfect partners.  I needed something for the dots on the DSP so pulled out the faithful pearls.  I colored them with the Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  If you have not tried this, you really should.  They dry almost immediately and you can then have dots in any color you need.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.

A Poppy Birthday

The new Painted Poppies Bundle Suite of products is Amazing!!!  There are actually two bundles of products that coordinate perfectly together.  The Painted Poppies and the Peaceful Moments Bundles.  They are both on page 25 of the Mini Catalog.

Today I have a simple card that uses the Painted Poppy stamp with a sweet layout to put the focal point on the one single poppy with a stem.

 

Stampin' Up!, Painted Poppy, Bonanza Buddies, Jackie Beers

 

The background for this card is a sheet of the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP.  The sentiment is from the adorable stamp set Bonanza Buddies.

The flower image is stamped in Smoky Slate ink  for a softer flower base and colored with Stampin’ Blends. It is then layered on Rich Razzleberry Card Stock.  The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive Ink and layered on Pool Party Card Stock.  I placed Stampin’ Dimensionals on each end of the sentiment so that it layers over the flower layer.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will return on Monday to see more new projects.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Bonanza Birthday

 

 

I have another sneak peek to share with you.  This is one of the cutest sets from the upcoming Mini Catalog.  I needed a birthday card and wanted it to be humorous.  I had the new products near and when I looked through them I was immediately drawn to the Bonanza Buddies and Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper.

 

 

This card was for my upline Brian King on his birthday.  After looking at the DSP, I knew it had to be the lion.  Do you get it?  The King of animals and Brian King, InKing Royalty.  It made me laugh!

I paired the sentiment with a new punch.  The back layer is the Timeless Label Punch and the front is the new Label Me Fancy Punch.  They were a perfect fit.

I don’t usually show the inside of the cards.  This one needed to be shared as I love this sentiment which is part of the Bonanza Buddies set.  It is a perfect sentiment and I see using it by masking off the birthday part for other occasions.

 

 

Thank you for visiting today.  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.  I know you are all busy with Christmas almost here.  I appreciate you sharing your time with me.

The Gang for GDP220

You may have seen the Gangs All Meer stamp set in the upcoming Sale-A-bration catalog.  I have seen several sneak Peeks of them.  So I am sharing one today.  It fit perfectly with my Global Design Project Case The Designer Challenge.

 

 

The Gangs All Meer makes an adorable card that any age recipient would love.  I know I would.  It makes me Smile!!  The Case The Designer Challenge (GDP220) is such a fun challenge.  Casing is Using the card for inspiration, colors, layout, and everything down to almost copying it.  Of course if you copy exactly please give credit to the person you copied.

In this instance, here is the card I Cased.

These challenges are a great way to get ideas when you cannot get anything to work from your brain to your hands.  I have that problem quite often and look back at challenges to get an idea.

I paired the stamped image with the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  I love the colors it contains.  Of Course my card base and layers are from that striped piece of DSP.  The ribbon is Calypso Coral Satin ribbon and is a great way to “ground” the framed focal point.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another new project.  And if you need a hint to someone for a gift for yourself, or if you have a stamping friend who is hard to by for, I Have Gift Certificates.  All you have to do is contact me and I will do it right away.

Ladybug Sneak Peek

The new Sale-A-Bration Host set is Little Ladybug. You may have seen some samples with it.  I have made a cute birthday card that I hope you will enjoy.

 

 

I used a variety of the stamps from the set.  In fact, all of the stamps I used are from the set.  I stamped everything using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

The designer paper is another of the “back” sides of paper I love to use.  This is from Perennial Essence DSP.  I paired it with Daffodil Delight and the Burlap Ribbon.

I hope this set will add to your excitement for the Sale-A-Bration event coming up!  Thanks for stopping by and please return again tomorrow for another new project.

Frosted Birthday

The Feels Like Frost 6 X 6 Designer Paper is just beautiful.  It is so realistic looking that you just say “Wow”.  So it does not take much to add to that paper for a super nice card to appear.  That is what I did today.  I turned the Frost paper into a birthday card.  I was thinking outside of the box and away from the expected Christmas or Winter card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Itty Bitty Birthdays

 

For a color to pair with the DSP,  I took the piece I had cut and went down my paper files.  I found a few that were okay matches, but when I came to Purple Posy I knew it was the one.  Yes, I hate that the ink for Purple Posy never worked out, but the other products are still wonderful.

The ribbon is Purple Posy Scalloped Linen Ribbon.  That ribbon is available in all of the 2019-2021 In Colors.  The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays, another of my “go to” stamp sets.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back on Monday for more projects.
