Kindness

I hope everyone is safe and well after the nasty weather of the weekend.  We were very lucky and did not get the ice that was expected.

Today’s card is a quick and easy one that could be done with almost any stamp set and designer paper.  I used the awesome Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  I really do love that paper!!

I did a different pairing of colors than I have done previously.  I paired Coastal Cabana with Tranquil Tide. I was attempting to bring out the lighter / brighter blue in the DSP.  The positioning of the sentiment is totally to show off the beautiful DSP.  And I really like it in the corner, as opposed to centered.  Not your normal positioning and I like that as well.

I hope you liked my quick and easy card.  Please return tomorrow for a new project.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Happiness

Happiness is anytime spent with friends, at least to me anyway.  So today’s card is a simple stamping ,#SimpleStamping, as Sara mentioned several times at OnStage.  What makes this one seem so easy is the photopolymer stamp set Coffee Cafe.  It is a favorite of mine that I hope stays around for quite some time.

As I mentioned above, the photopolymer stamp set is so easy to line up the sentiment inside the cup outline.  And it is just as easy to add the dollop of whipped topping on top.  Yes, I realize this is more a dessert than a cup of coffee!!  Isn’t that the best kind?

I tied together the Coffee Cafe stamp set from the annual catalog with a designer series paper from the Holiday catalog.  I love mixing products.  Also, all of the stamping is from the single stamp set.  Sometimes I wonder if I confuse customers with multiple stamp sets.  I like to occasionally show a “one stamp set” type card.

The picture doesn’t really do the heart in the center of coffee very clearly.  I punched a Cherry Cobbler heart using the Cookie Cutter punch.  I believe it is very fitting to match the hearts I added in the whipped topping.

Thank you very much for visiting today.  I hope you enjoyed this quick #SimpleStamping card.  Please come back tomorrow for a new project.  As always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

One more thing……If you are interested in the Stamparatus carry bag, it is listed further down, you can begin ordering soon.  I recommend ordering as soon as it is available as it is while supplies last.

Tin Tiles

I am back with another of the Country Home cards.  I cannot get enough of these stamps.  It reminds me that Fall is not far away.  Although, the stamps in the set could be year round comfort type stamping.  I like that better than “country” !

Tin Tiles Embossing Folder, 147906

 

I know you can not miss how AWESOME the Tin Tiles Dynamic Embossing Folder is!!  Just WOW!!!  I embossed the Galvanized Metal Paper with the Tin Tiles folder and it truly looks like the old, now back in style, tin tiles.  This definitely takes center stage.

The gorgeous DSP is a reverse side of the Country Lane Designer Series Paper.  I am growing more fond of the Blackberry Bliss every day.  It is paired with the Gray Granite card stock to match the Tin.  I stamped the milk can and flowers in the Gray Granite as well and colored them with the Stampin’ Blends.

Country Home

I have another Country Home stamp set card today.  I really am loving this set.  For today I combined Country Home with Love What You Do stamp set.  I almost named the post Country Pitcher, LOL!  The pitcher reminds me of the old blue metal dishes that were speckled and usually had a tad of rust on them.  Am I dating myself? HaHa.  Anyway, I turned it into a vase.

Country Home, 147678

 

Isn’t that Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper just beautiful?  Stampin’ Up! continues to top themselves on the beauty of the DSP.  This pack has each sheet with one side that is either pearly or copper.  It is just “WOW!!

Because I wanted a blue pitcher, I chose to focus on the blue of the DSP.  My base card is Blueberry Bushel.  I have used it before, but when I put it with this DSP it just seemed to brighten.  My coloring is with the Stampin’ Blends.  I love how they seem to blend themselves and do not leave lines.  I am definitely not a great blender!

To finish off the card I knew it needed something but I did not want to cover up the DSP.  So I added the Pearlized Doily.  It sort of blended into the paper, so I backed it with a Blueberry circle.  The sentiment is stamped and backed with Blackberry Bliss.  I added just a single pearl to go with the pearlized paper and doily.

Thank you for visiting today!  I very much appreciate it.  I have a complete supply list at the bottom of the page.  Also I have included the measurements just below.  Thanks again and please stop back tomorrow.

MEASUREMENTS: (Sorry for the funky 16th of an inch measurements.  I stamped and decided to cut it down and that’s where I ended up!  Oops)

  • Gray layer is 4 1/8 X 5 3/8
  • DSP layer is 4 X 5 1/4

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!
