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.

Forever Blossoms

I have a sneak peak of a gorgeous stamp set from the upcoming Mini Catalog.  (The Mini Catalog is the new name for the Occasions Catalog – – Actually it is a new / old name as that is what they used to be called.)

I love how soft this looks.  Also it is a great pairing of the old / new and mix & match that I love with Stampin’ Up! products.  I needed a birthday card and did not want it to have a Christmas look.  And I had all of the new products laying on my desk to organize.  Of course that is where my eye went to begin creating.

 

 

The pretty flower is from the Forever Blossoms stamp set you can order in January.  It is stamped on Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper in Smoky Slate Ink.  I wanted a soft look to go with the soft colors of the papers.

I paired the Petal Pink card stock and DSP with Soft Sea Foam card stock.  I added touches of color to the stamped flower just to show a little definition.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and is stamped in Smoky Slate as well.

Rosy Birthday

Tomorrow is the last day to order the Christmastime Is Here Suite of products.  I love every piece of the suite, to include the bracelet.  If you click on the photo at the bottom of the post that shows all of the products in the suite, it will take you to store.

Since the Christmas Rose is going away, I thought I would share one more card with the products in the suite.  I managed to use most of them without even trying.

 

 

The beautiful designer series paper, Christmastime Is Here, is the star of this card.  The piece on the bottom is probably my all time favorite.  It reminds me of Santa and the quilted suits you see sometimes.  The top piece is just as pretty though and lends itself to a special card.

The Gold Foil die cut is a die from the Rose Dies as is the two layers of the sentiments.  The Gold Shimmer Ribbon and the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots are perfect additions to any card or project.

The only thing I did not use from the suite is the Christmas Rose stamp set.  I needed a birthday so went looking for a pretty font to fit in the die cut.  I found the perfect one in a brand new stamp set that is going to debut in the 2020 Mini Catalog.  It is the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  I was able to preorder it due to attending OnStage.  Hint:  This is one of the many things I love about being a demonstrator.  We get to see and play with product first!

Thank you for stopping in.  I am off to the crazy Black Friday shopping.  Wish me luck!!

Make A Wish

I have backed off of holiday cards for the day and gone with the always needed Happy Birthday.  I supposed food is still on my mind however.  In choosing a stamp set, I went with the Birthday Goodness set.  Yes, that is the donuts and macarons!!

 

 

I paired Rococo Rose and Pretty Peacock for this project.  I love how they look together.  The designer series paper is from the Woven Threads DSP.  I colored the donuts to match the Rococo Rose color and the cake plate matches the Pretty Peacock paper.

I like to move my layers around a bit for a different look.  Instead of placing this card in regular 5 1/2″ tall with a fairly centered focal point, I turned it sideways and placed the focal off to one side.  It doesn’t take much of a change to get a totally different look.

Thank you for visiting today.  Please come back tomorrow for another new project!

Pressed Petals

Happy Veteran’s Day to all of our Veterans.  I am so thankful for each and every one of you!

A friend’s birthday was yesterday and she loves the more rustic look.  I don’t do that very well.  I lean more towards brights.  But in looking through the designer series paper, which is where I get a lot of color ideas, I found what I thought would work.  It is the Pressed Petals DSP.  I have used the solid “burlap or linen” sheet of paper previously.  I hope she and you like this one.

 

Stampin' Up!, Pressed Petals, Beautiful Bouquet, Jckie Beers

 

I paired the flowers with the burlap / linen background with Crumb Cake and Merry Merlot.  I added Rococo Rose as a lighter pop of color.   I also added the solid piece of the burlap / linen sheet behind the sentiment.  The flower and sentiment are from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  I had not utilized that set in some time and am thrilled with how well it worked here.

Do you recognize this layout?  It is a landscape version of the deer card I did last week for the sketch challenge.

Here is the layout card I mentioned:

 

And here is the card I did previously using the linen look DSP:

 

 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will have another new project for you tomorrow.

Tea Together

The Tea Together and Tea Time Dies were never a bundle but are a super pairing of products.   It gives a very classic scene for a card.

 

 

I paired the sweet products with the softest of the Stampin’ Up! colors.  It is the Purple Posy.  Sadly, there are still failed results for the Purple Posy Ink.  So Stampin’ Up!, with their great care for quality, has decided to give up on the Purple Posy Ink.  All of the other Purple Posy products will still be available.  The Stampin’ Blends works beautifully as you can see in the tea cup.

I stamped the tea cup in Highland Heather and then colored parts with the Purple Posy Stampin’ Blend Light.  The flower is stamped in Smoky Slate and colored with the Purple Posy, Light Highland Heather, and Light Old Olive Blends.

The tag is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays and is puched using the Classic Label Punch.  After punching, I put the one end back into the edge of the punch to make the flagged end.

The background designer paper is from the In Color Designer Series Paper for 2019-2021.  I used two different patterns of the Purple Posy DSP.

Thank you very much for checking in today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another new project.
