Blossoms

Today I am sharing one of the New Release Sale-A-Bration Items.  It is subtle on the card, and that is a great definition of the item.  Have you guessed what it is?  Yes, It is the So Very Vellum.  And it is more beautiful in person.  I love the soft colors.

 

 

The vellum comes with this embossing already done for you.   All of the sheets have the same embossing.  The vellum I chose for the background is the Soft Sea Foam one.  I used the Highland Heather Vellum for the flowers.  They are die cut using the Dies from Forever Blossoms Bundle.  The embossed vellum gives an added definition to the petals.

The stamp is from the Forever Blossoms stamp set.  It also is die cut using the bundled dies.  That is such a great focal point for any design you could come up with.

I stamped in Smoky Slate Ink and then colored with Soft Sea Foam and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends.  For the bow, I used the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  It is simply wonderful to work with.  I don’t usually do multiple loops with ribbon, but this is so silky and thin I went for it.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I have new projects each day to share with you.  And this coming Wednesday is the InKing Royalty Blog Hop, you will not want to miss that.

Someone Special

I am not quite over Valentine’s Day cards, even though I have shared quite a few.  I have another one for you today.  This one with a change of colors would work for many other occasions.

 

 

I think this little racoon is adorable.  And that is saying a lot since we had a family decide to check out our garage and the cat food!!

I have mixed several products for this card, but only one stamp set.  It is the Special Someone and it so darn cute.  I stamped the racoon base in Gray Granite (probably would have looked better in Smoky Slate) then the second layer stamped in Soft Suede.  The balloon is stamped with Flirty Flamingo for the first stamp and Real Red for the top stamp.

The layers are all from the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I felt it needed something else, so added the one red heart.  It is the heart out of the Dog Builder Punch.  I angled the sentiment more for a space reason than layout.  Although I like it raised above the other plus it shows off the DSP.  The paper is the From My Heart Designer Series Paper.

Thank you for checking in today.  All of the supplies I used are at the bottom of the page.  Please return next week for more new projects.  And don’t forget about Sale-A-Bration deals as well as the AWESOME JOIN PROMOTION.  You can read about the join promotion in the next paragraph.

By The Dock

I created today’s card to play along with the Global Design Project sketch chalenge.  It is GDP226.  I am being a bit different and going to show you the sketch first.  The sketches do not have to be followed exactly.  What I did is another older technique that as usual I had not used in many years.

And here is my version of the sketch challenge.

 

 

To say my card is different is that I took a solid stamped layer and cut it into equal parts.  The design team for this challenge mostly used individual stampings on each of the layers.  The method I chose is one that was used quite often back when I first started stamping.

This stamp set is perfect for masculine cards, or anyone who loves to fish.  There are more women than you probably think that are avid fishermen (fisherperson!)  It is the new By The Dock stamp set. I stamped the pieces in different colors that matched that item.  I then used Stampin’ Blends to color them appropriately.

The ribbon and sentiment are ones I was thrilled with the results.  The ribbon is the Braided Linen Trim.  I did not tie a bow or a regular little knot.  I looped it around, except upside down, like you would for a tag or bookmark.  I wanted the tails down and it took me a minute to figure out how to do it upside down! LOL!!

The sentiment is from the By the Dock stamp set.  I stamped it onto Sahara Sand card stock and then die cut it using a die from the Painted Labels Dies.  I truly hope this die set carries over after the Mini Catalog.  They are perfect for sentiments.

Thank you for stopping in today!  I hope you will return tomorrow for another idea before the weekend.

Bonanza Birthday

I adore the cute little critters in the Bonanza Buddies Suite of products.  I wholeheartedly agree they are for ANY age!!  Hopefully you agree and will give this cute card a try.

 

 

I love the Toucan.  He is so cute and struts around saying “look at me”!  I debated between the balloons or gifts as the background from the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper.  I liked the brighter colors of the gifts to match the proud fellow’s coloring.

The folded tag on the front is a new favorite technique.  I hope you love it as much as I do once I explain it.  I used the tag from the Bonanza Dies but just a little bit differently. I took a piece of Whisper White card stock cut 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 (more because it was what was laying there!) and it happened to fit perfectly.  I folded it in half and layed it on the die.  Where I did not want it to cut on the left side, I used removable tape to hold it in place.  I placed the folded edge of card stock as close against the cutting edge as I could . I wanted the stitched detail to still be there.  It worked perfectly!  Woohoo!  I love when ideas turn out well.

Here is a picture of the inside of the tag.

Because I wanted to be able to open the tag, I could not do a normal loop of ribbon through the hole at the top.  A quick fix was a tiny bow that I secured with a glue dot just above the hole.  This is layered on a full card so you still have the inside for normal sentiment and your love.

Thanks for stopping by today!  All of the supplies I used are at the bottom of the post.  I appreciate any comments and I do respond.  I usually respond to the email and not from my blog.  I am usually on my phone and not the computer after I do my posts.

Lovely Birthday

Today I have a quick Birthday card to share using the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper and a wonderful new punch.

 

Stampin' Up!, Pressed Petals, Layered Leaves, Stitched Rectangles, Label Me Lovely, Jackie Beers

 

I had this Blackberry Bliss Stitched Rectangle frame laying on my desk from a previous card and decided to put it to use.  I cut the Pressed Petals DSP to fit the frame and my card was started.  As a play on the petals, I used the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder to emboss a Pear Pizzaz layer.

The focal point, I believe, is the new Label Me Lovely Punch.  I love that it is more square and will fit a taller sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Layered With Kindness stamp set from the Mini Catalog.  It is stamped in Mossy Meadow but the decorative part is outlined with Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blend.  I anchored the sentiment with the Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I love using leftover pieces for a card. I hope you do as well.  Before you go, please check out the Ultimate Shopping Spree I have outlined below.  I would love to talk with you about it.

Life Is Short

Anyone that knows me well at all is familiar with my love of purses and shoes.  My shoes are more on the comfortable side (Birkenstocks and Hoka tennis shoes).  When I saw the sentiment in the Dress To Impress stamp set regarding buy the shoes, I was sold!  The humor along with a favorite thing was just perfect.

 

Stampin' Up!, dress To Impress, Jackie Beers, Best Dressed, Stitched All Around, Purple Posy

 

Does this sentiment speak to you like it did me?  I am a firm believer in life is short and to enjoy the things you love.  Those high heels would not be going home with me, but I can still admire the look of them.   One thing I do love is the Best Dressed Suite of products.

The Best Dressed 6X6 Designer Series Paper is as beautiful as all of Stampin’ Up!’s DSP.  One side is purses, shoes, perfume, and the other side is like this striped pattern.  I tend to go with the “opposite” sides of the DSP.  I pulled my color combination directly from the DSP.  It is one of my favorite ways to plan a card.

The thought of “Buy the shoes” made me think of a gift card for someone to purchase their choice of shoes.  So I went with my go to gift card holder.  Here is a view of the inside.

 

 

Oops on me for the Book gift card.  A tip I always give when making a gift card holder is to place the card as you are securing that layer.  It allows the extra space you need for a card so it is not a tight fit when you do add one.  I forgot to take this one out.  I promise that when the card is delivered it will have the appropriate card inside!  🙂

There are several gift card holders in my Gallery at the top of the page.  You can search for them and see different versions of this style.  It is very easy to do and holds a gift card perfectly.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I love to read your comments and answer any questions you may have.
