Mosaic Single Layer Card

 

A challenge I recently participated in was to do a Single Layer Card.  That means to stamp directly on the folded base of the card.  You can add an embellishment, but no other layers.  These can be hard to do when you are accustomed to multiples layers plus a sentiment layer.  I found a great stamp set to use though.

 

 

I chose the Memorable Mosaic stamp set and used the Weeping Willow looking tree.   I love the definition these stamps give.  I stamped the top with Mint Macaron Ink and it looks like it is two different shades of color.  It is not, it is the stamp itself.  LOVE!!!!  The tree trunk is the same way.  It is stamped in Soft Suede Ink.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Here’s A Card.  I love that wording.  I believe I will turn this card into a 3 X 3 with the same sentiment and use them as Random Acts of Kindness cards to hand out.

The only embellishments are the Noble Peacock Embellishments.  The color compliments the Mint Macaron of the leaves.

Sailing Home

I have taken a break from the different holiday cards and gone back to the Annual Catalog again.  I am playing with the Sailing Home and the High Tide stamp sets.  They both work wonderfully together.

 

Stampin' Up!, Sailing Home, High Tide, Waterfront, Jackie Beers

 

I paired the Sailing Home stamp set lighthouse and  birds with the light from the High Tide stamp set.  They are stamped in Gray Granite and Smoky Slate with Daffodil Delight as the Light.  To enhance the simple stamps, I layered the image on the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

The sentiment is from the Waterfront stamp set.  I wanted something simple and the “friend” fit the bill perfectly.  It is layered using the Layering Circles Dies and tied on with the Night of Navy and Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will give this layout a try.  It is a quick and easy one that would be very easy to make multiples of, or to dress up with a few more embellishments.

Hey There Fall

Fall is on my mind!  Not that the weather here in Georgia feels like fall, Oh My!!!  But, I have another Fall card to share with you today.  This one uses , as I am prone to do, the back side of a Designer Series Paper that you would not say is Fall.

 

I think this Linen Look DSP is gorgeous.  Even with the photo, it seems you could reach out and touch it. Surprisingly it is from the Pressed Petals DSP.  Several of the pages have a linen look in the background.  This sheet is all linen look.

I paired the gorgeous DSP with the Harvest Hellos Bundle.  It has the Apple Builder Punch and the apple and/ or pumpkin in the  stamp set.   The pumpkins behind are stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink and colored with Pumpkin Pie stampin’ Blends.  The front pumpkin is stamped in Cajun Craze ink on Pumpkin Pie card stock.

The cute little “Hey There” tag is from the stamp set as well.  It says “Hey There, Pumpkin”.  I did not want to use all of that.  To omit what I did not want, I inked the Hey There with a Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  (It is the only marker you can buy individually).  I stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White and punched it out using the Classic Label Punch.  I fed the end back into the punch to make the banner end.

Thank you for stopping in today!  I hope you will come again tomorrow before the long Holiday weekend. Remember that Saturday is the last day to take advantage of this Join Promotion for Stampin’ Up!  I really would love to have you on my team.  Becoming a Demonstrator was one of the best choices I ever made!!

Floating By

Hello Everyone, I am back!!!  I enjoyed a fabulous riverboat cruise down the Rhine River and saw some gorgeous scenery.  Not to mention all of the wonderful food I stuffed myself with.  As much fun as I had, I missed my hubby and my stamping.  So it is great to be back.

When trying to decide on a new project to get restarted with, I found the cutest set to play with.  It is the We’ll Walrus Be Friends.  I love the name alone, but the images are adorable.  And one had the perfect sentiment to end my cruising with.

 

Stampin' Up!, We'll Walrus Be Friends, Jackie Beers , well walrus be friends

I thought this image and sentiment were perfect for my end of cruise post.  Of course, I did not see any walruses along the Rhine River.

This was a really quick card to put together.  I used the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper and paired it with two colors from the paper.  They are Balmy Blue and Night of Navy. I stamped the walrus in Gray Granite and then colored it and the water with Stampin’ Blends.  The sentiment is a two line sentiment.  However……..the Classic Label Punch fits perfectly between the two lines.  So it was super easy to just punch each line out separately and then make the banner tips using the punch as well.

I am so happy that you stopped in today.  It is great to be back and stamping.  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.

Hello There

This card is one I made to finish off the Royal Challenge I have mentioned previously.  It was a Welcome Home for Brian King, my SU Upline,  from the SU Incentive trip.  I did not find a Welcome that I loved , so I went with Hello There!

 

What better stamp set to use for someone as “crafty” as Brian, than the It Starts With Art set.  I used the gorgeous Designer Series Paper from the suite of products as my bright background.  My sign is from the stamp set I Say Hello.  It is a really cute set that I believe is somewhat of a sleeper set.

I hung the sign using one of the Mini Library Clips.  the sequins scattered around were just enough bling to give some extra to the card.  I love not always laying everything out evenly, so this haphazard layout is a nice change.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop!

Cow Love

I will say up front that I made this card a few days ago.  I was so surprised when I checked my Stampin’ Up! Up-Line Brian King’s blog yesterday and saw a very similar card.  I dd not want you , or him, to think I copied his card.  Although it is an acceptable practice and is called CASEing.

Anyway, I made today’s card in response to the Royal Challenge we are doing on our Team Facebook page while Brian is off on the SU Incentive Trip.  I also sent it the next day to a couple I met in my travels that own a cattle ranch.  I thought of them as soon as I saw this awesome Over The Moon stamp set.

 

 

I believe I have said it before, but I think these cows are adorable.  I paired the High Tide set with the cow to get the dirt and grass for the field.

The beautiful color I chose is the new In Color Rococo Rose.  I think the name is sweet as is the color.  The plaid is from the 2019-2021 In Color Paper Stack of 6X6 DSP.  I gave it a small border of white to mimic the white showing with the cow.

The cow is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  It was die cut with the Layering Ovals Dies and backed with a scallop die from the Layering Ovals.

Here is a view of the inside and the envelope.  I was going cow crazy on this card!

 

 

Thank you for visiting today!  I really do appreciate it and hope you will return on Monday for more new projects.
