Flying Home

This Flying Home stamp set is just adorable.  At first glance I thought it was too similar to some other ones.  But then I thought of each of the stamps in a small frame.  A perfect Springtime sampler.  I did not go that route today though.  This is  just a sweet little 4 X 4 card that would be great for almost any occasion.

Of course, the perfect companion to this cute stamp set are the Stampin’ Blends.  I know I have been utilizing them quite a lot.  They are just so darn easy to use so I find myself reaching for them over and over.

I kept this card super simple.  It is a 4 X 4 with Night of Navy as the base, and navy layered with Whisper White is all I used.  Of course I played with a variety of colors in my flowers and birdhouse. 🙂

This card would be perfect for a Stampin’ Up! Party.  It would be easy for any level of stamper.  If you do not have a demonstrator I would love to talk with you and help you with your stamping needs.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I hope you have an awesome weekend and will stop back next week.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Simple Treat Holder

Before I get to the treat holder I have for you, I want to let you know about a special that begins today.  The Fast Fuse Adhesive Mega Special is back!!  Last year Stampin’ Up! had a promotion and it was so popular that supply depleted much quicker than expected.  Therefore the special was shortened by quite a lot.  It Is Back!!!  From Today through February 12, when you purchase 1 Fast Fuse Adhesive, you will get 2 Fast Fuse Refills FREE !!!  That is an awesome deal!  I hope you will take advantage of it.

Now for the cute little treat holder I have made.  It is super quick, simple, and easy to make multiples of.  I used the Diaper Fold and 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to create it.

Tutti Fruiti 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, 145606

 

I just adore this Tutti-Fruitti DSP.  The colors are very vibrant and there are so many different designs.  The sentiment is from the Yay You Host set from the Occasions Catalog.  That set is wonderful and unfortunately gets overlooked being in the back of the little catalog.

I fit a Ghirardelli Chocolate into my little holder.  But I know there are a lot of other candy, tea, etc that would fit in one of these.  You can also make them larger.  Just continue using a square sheet of card stock or DSP.  The hardest decision to make is which direction you want the DSP to go!!

For a more finished product, I wrapped this treat holder up.  I did not have any of the 3 X 6 Gussetted Bags, so I used the 6 X 6 bag and folded it.  My tag is from the carried over from Holiday Catalog set, Labels To Love, and the Everyday Label Punch.  I think this is a sweet little treat to give to someone.

A Good Day!

It is a rainy day here in the Atlanta area.  But that can still be considered a Good Day!  Today’s card is what I think of as a “pick me up” type card.  It would be great to drop in someone’s lunch or as a random act of kindness.

A Good Day, 145873

 

If you have not given this A Good Day set a second look, I hope you will.  All of the pieces are just so cute and versatile.  Today I paired it with the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper.  This is to me a SMILE card.

I made this a 4 X 4 card instead of 3 X 3 because I wanted to see more of the DSP.  I think it adds so much to the card.  The background is stamped in So Saffron ink as a soft watermark type layer.  That stamp is from Lovely Wishes.

The measurements and supplies are listed below.  I hope you have an awesome and Great Day!!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base card is 4 X 8 and folded in half
  • The DSP is 3 7/8 X 3 7/8
  • The black layer is 3 X 3
  • The white top layer is 2 7/8 X 2 7/8

Friends Fur-Ever

I did something scary yesterday!  I cut apart a stamp !!! That is the first time I have ever done that.  I have seen a few cards with the We Must Celebrate stamp set and the lovable little animals.  And then I saw other demonstrators posting cards with only one of the animals, and another with several stacked on top of each other..  That was my deciding moment.  What do you think of this?

Looking at these cute faces makes me smile.  Since I have been on a coloring kick with the Stampin’ Blends for a while, these cute animals just fit right in.  In a way I think it looks like a kid colored it.  Then I look again and really liked it.  But I hope it gives you ideas for this wonderful stamp set.

The background was totally created with the Stampin’ Blends.  I like the unevenness of the grass and sky.  It gives it some depth without looking too solid.  But more that anything, I just enjoyed coloring and letting my imagination go.  I really hope you will give it a try as well.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.

Life Is Beautiful

Life is indeed beautiful.  It snowed here in the Atlanta area yesterday for the third time this winter.  That is extremely unusual for us.  And when I woke up and looked out the window it was just beautiful.  Of course I did not have to get out in it since I am retired!  I am sure some of my friends had a different viewpoint.  So when I made this card the sentiment reminded me of my feelings earlier in the day.

A Mother’s Flair, 145905

I hope you love that sentiment as much as I do!  It is perfect for so many occasions.  I had to consider this stamp set for a bit, but I am so happy that I purchased it.  On first glance it is a Mother’s Day set,  and my Mom passed away many years ago.  But I kept being drawn to the individual stamps.  I finally gave in and I am so now in love with it.  I already have a couple more cards planned using  individual stamps.

I may have gone a little overboard with the different shapes.  I tried just using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  But it made the pieces too large.  So I had to rethink it and ended up using a variety of the layering pieces.  I hope it gives you ideas for different cards though.

Bluebird of Happiness

LOL !!!  If you are my age, you probably grew up with the “Bluebird of Happiness” not being a good thing.  But that was exactly what I thought of when I saw the bird with the heart on top of the cart.  And that led to part of my color scheme for this card.  I am really happy with my bluebird here.

Friendships Sweetest Thoughts, 145826

 

My spring type flowers are my happy thoughts for warmer weather. I am tired of being cold!  I definitely would not make it living in the north.   So I went with spring flowers and soft colors.

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

The Night of Navy is a far cry from a “soft” color,  that  I was going for with this card.  I think it works though.  I believe it helps to draw out the color in the softer shades.  I hope you like it as well.  This was a super quick card to make and I hope you will give it a try.
