You’re The Best

I was so excited when I saw this typewriter set in the new Annual Catalog.  It reminded me of a favorite from a few years ago.  I have made several Thank You 3X3 cards with it that I have not shown here.  So today I have a full size card to share.

 

P.S. You’re The Best, 146516

 

I used only the stamps included in the stamp set.  I love being able to complete a card with only one stamp set.  The background blue layer is Balmy Blue stamped with Balmy Blue Ink.  The blue of the center is Balmy Blue Ink applied with an Aqua Painter.

I stamped the typewriter and then used a mask to place over it to stamp the flowers.  One flower is stamped and fussy cut out to give some depth.  They were all colored using Stampin’ Write Markers.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Blog Hop card as well.  Please be sure and check back on Monday, but also next Wednesday is the InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  There will be lots more great ideas for you.

Accented Blooms

I immediately knew I liked the Accented Blooms Stamp set as soon as I saw it.  I really liked that it coordinated with a punch!  I do love punches, especially for making multiple cards.  That is even more so with this stamp set because the sentiments are varied.  You can make the same  card and easily add the appropriate sentiment as needed.  Here is the one I chose for today.

 

 

Accented Blooms, 146681

 

I just love the variety of the colors.  The two main colors are Grapefruit Grove and Granny Apple Green.  With the flowers I used several of the Stampin’ Blends.  I like the mixture even though I was a little nervous as I was coloring!

Watercolor Notecards

It helps if you put the correct date on the scheduled post.  Sorry about that!!

Today I have a one layer card.  That is super unusual for me.  I do love my layers!  But I hope when you see this one, you will consider these great notecards as quick and easy cards to have on hand.  Half of the work is already done for you.  Take a look and then I will explain what is already on the card.

 

Delightfully Detailed Notecards, 146911

 

 

I love how this card turned out!  These notecards are delivered with the watercolor wash look already on them.  They are half in Mint Macaron and half in Blackberry Bliss.  I love the subtle watercolor look which screams for you to just stamp on top of it.  The Blackberry Bliss has a darker background and is maybe even more beautiful.

These notecards would be the perfect way to make and have on hand some quick Thank You type cards, or for a beginner crafter to not have to worry about doing layers.  You get 20 notecards and envelopes for $9.50.

I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede and the tree by coloring with my Stampin’ Write Markers in Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede.  And that is the completed card!  It cannot get much simpler than that.  The stamp set is Rooted In Nature, a wonderful set, especially for more masculine cards.

I also stamped on the envelope to give a little “something special is in here” look to it.  I try to always remember to do that.  It is a leaf from the same set stamped in Mint Macaroon.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return on Monday.  Please remember to review all of the current specials.  The JOIN NOW is the best ever!!!

Detailed Smiles

I have another quick and easy card today.  I am also showcasing the beautiful Highland Heather from the Stampin’ Up! Color Revamp.  It is gorgeous!  And I am once again using the Detailed With Love stamp set.  It is a very versatile set for sure.

 

Detailed with Love, 146606

 

I have also, for the first time, used the new Stampin’ Up! Embossing Mats.  I used it for the detailed cutting in the center of the card.  I may not have needed to do that, but I did not have a lot of time and didn’t want to mess up the card.  So I played it safe and I love the outcome. I will definitely be playing with these mats more in the near future.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  This is a very simple layout that could be utilized in a variety of ways.  I hope you will give it a try.

I Am Back!!

I am back from my awesome sightseeing tour down the west coast.  We went from Seattle to San Francisco. I must say the Oregon Coast is simply breathtaking!  All of the scenery and sights were wonderful.

Today I have a pretty quick card for you.  I am trying to get back in the groove and have a lot of cards to make.  So we will get right to it this morning.

 

Dandelion Wishes, 146747

 

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I used the beautiful Tropical Escape 6X6 Designer Series Paper Stack as the main color scheme for this card.  I am really in love with this paper.  The colors are so bright and are some surprising combinations.  The colors I have used today are not something I would normally have put together.  So keep this combination to try yourself.

The three triangles, or squares if turned another way, are a great way to have a different look with stamp sets.  I chose the Dandelion Wishes set and stamped them very subtly with the Gray Granite. I used the Layering Squares to cut them and the Blushing Bride scalloped background.

Thank you for coming back to see me today!  I really appreciate it.

Granny Apple Coffee for GDP 144

I am submitting today’s card for the Global Design Project #144 Challenge.  It is a CASE the designer.  I used her layout for my design .  To CASE can mean using a little, a lot, or just the layout.  I was a little in the middle of that on my card.

 

Stampin' Up!, stampinup, Jackie Beers, jackiebeers, coffee Cafe, Coffee Cups framelits

Coffee Cafe, 143677

 

And here is the challenge card I cased.

 

 

I was so thrilled when the Coffee Cafe set and matching framelits carried over to the new catalog.  Then I realized I had not used them in quite some time.  So here they are paired with the gorgeous Tropical Escape 6X6 Designer Series Paper.

All of the supplies I used are listed the bottom of the page.  Thank you so much for visiting today!  I very much appreciate it and love to hear from you.

COLOR COMBINATION:  Of course these are in the Gorgeous DSP.

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • The wide strip of DSP is 5 1/2 X 2 1/2
  • The banner strip of DSP is 5 X 2

 

 


 

It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
