One Of A Kind

I have somewhat of a Funky Fold in my card today.  I received a similar card at the swap a couple of weeks ago and loved that it was different.  I recreated it, but instead of folding, I cut away to make the same front result.  And I changed the front decorations as well.  I had in my mind a gentleman card with a tie.  However, it ended up more like a female card with a scarf!  I just never know what my end result will be! 🙂

 

Lovely Wishes, 145924

 

I will begin with the “V”.  The card I received was 4 1/4 X 11, scored equally and then each end was cut so that when they overlapped the front it formed this V.  I decided it would be easier to do a regular fold from that beginning cut, but cut out the V section.  My method saves some cutaway card stock but requires a little measuring.  So the other may be simpler???

I used the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder and ran it through the Big Shot once in each direction to make the plaid design on the front section.  I then used Tear & Tape to secure the bottom and the side.  I also used the Tear & Tape to adhere the ribbon around the neck of my “sweater”.

I hope you like my funky fold card.  It is a good design for pull out invitations or even adding a gift card on the bottom portion of the pull out card.

Thank you for visiting today.  The supplies I used are all listed at the bottom of the page.  Please don’t forget about the Retiring Items and the Clearance Rack was updated on Tuesday.  My much loved Island Indigo is on the Retiring List as well.  So if it a favorite of yours you should grab some now!

From The Heart

You should have seen today’s card on Friday.  I had some technical difficulties…….called “scheduling for the wrong day”!  Duh.  By the time I realized it had not posted, it was Friday afternoon.  When I discovered it was set for Saturday instead of Friday, I just changed it to Monday.  Sorry about that.  I’ll blame it on being retired and not knowing what the actual date is!!  So here is the delayed card.  A quick and easy one that is great for leftover DSP.

 

Petal Palette Bundle, 145974

 

 

I love simple and this is definitely a simple card.  Although you could step it up with some texture on the heart or the white background.  Probably my favorite part of the card is the banner from the DSP.  It is from the Bubbles and Fizz DSP from Sale-A-Bration.  I hate that I did not notice it before SAB was over.  But I found a strip laying on my cutting table and decided it was perfect for the card.

A simple background color change to anything with matching DSP and you have an entirely new card.  That is why I love posting here for you to check out my ideas.  Just use what you have laying around and it will be wonderful!

Thank you for visiting today!  I very much appreciate you checking my posts and your sweet comments.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Crazy quilt Hugs

Do any of you remember Crazy Quilts?  It was a frequently made quilt made by using leftover scraps of other quilting pieces.  That is what today’s card reminds me of.  Although I did it on purpose.  The idea came to me when I saw the card I made in the last week or two that was a CASE of Brian King’s patented leftover strips of card stock card.  You can see my card HERE.   Then I saw the Tailored Tag Punch, and this is the result of that combination.

 

Lovely Inside & Out, 144011

 

It is Crazy!!  I punched several pieces of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack with the Tailored Tag Punch.  The two different papers you see are actually both sides of one sheet.  I then just taped them to a piece of Whisper White card stock.  When I got to the edges, I merely turned it over and trimmed the pieces off with my Paper Snips.  Some of those pieces were then reused to fill in gaps.  It was actually fun, and quite quick to make.

For the sentiment, I decided to make it like a crooked sign to go along with the Crazy theme.  It is taped down and has an Enamel Shape to replace the nail or tack.  How fun is this??  Now I want to make a bunch more in different colors and different designer series papers.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed this card and will let me know what you think.  I love reading your comments.

The supplies I used are listed the bottom of the page.  Today there are not that many!  That is a good thing in my opinion!!

Amazing Hearts

Today’s card is a bright and happy card.   The designer series paper and the little stamp are the stars.  I also made it a 4 X 4 card.  It would be perfect to give as a Random Act of Kindness.  You could also use the same items and make it a 3 X 3.

 

Yay You, 145946

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I have recently used quite a bit of Night of Navy as a grounding color.  Today though I have changed it up a bit and gone with Pacific Point.  It is definitely another of my favorites.  And of course, who doesn’t love Calypso Coral.  This beautiful DSP is one of the Sale-A-Bration FREE items.  It is on the reverse side of a piece from the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper.  I fell in love with it immediately.

The stamp set is one of the Host sets from the Occasions Catalog , called Yay You!  It has Amazing sentiments.  I have used one of the others and this one a couple of times.  I believe this is the first time I have used other stamps though.  It will be a keeper for me, even after it retires.  I love good sentiments.  And to finish it off, I added a matching heart from the Metallic Shapes Embellishments.

Remember that there are only two days left on Sale-A-Bration!  If thee are still items on your Wish List, now is the time to order.  And think of the retiring In-Colors as well.  They usually go out of stock before the new catalog arrives.  That means stock up on them now and reward yourself with FREE product at the same time.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you have a great rest of the day and weekend.  Please stop back on Monday to see what I have for you.

Hello Friend

I am CASEing my Stampin’ Up! Team Leader, Brian King, on today’s patchwork card.  Brian has created several different cards using leftover strips of card stock.  Since I have been cleaning lately, I found I had quite a lot of little strips of card stock and DSP to either throw away or use.  I chose to use them of course.

 

A Good Day, 145873

 

 

And yes, that is the much used by me stamp set “A Good Day”.  I cannot apologize though.  It is a favorite and I keep going back to it when I am looking for something small.  I did not want to overwhelm the quilted look layer, so I went with a cute little design and a simple sentiment.

To adhere the strips, I covered a piece of whisper white with the Multi-purpose Adhesive sheet.  Then I just layed the strips down. Once I had the paper covered, I simply trimmed off the excess strips with my paper snips.  The hardest part of this is deciding which strips to use and then the color to use as the background layer.  I like those kind of difficulties. 🙂

The card base is the Tutti-Frutti Cards and Envelopes that are a Sale-A-Bration item.  These are wonderful.  I wish there would be something similar in the annual catalog.  It makes putting together a great card with matching envelope a piece of cake.

Speaking of SAB……there are only a few days left for you to take advantage of this annual offer.  It is also the absolute best time to join Stampin’ Up!  You can get quite a lot more in your Starter Kit for the same price.  I would love to have you join my team.  Hobby Demonstrators are the core of Stampin’ Up!  . That is how most of us begin.  I just wanted the discount to support my stamping habit.  Who doesn’t love a discount.  Plus you would have access to exclusive projects and ideas created by other demonstrators.  If you are thinking about it, please contact me and let’s talk.

You Warm My Heart – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! Today’s hop is filled to the brim with projects that celebrate Spring and Summer. With inspiration from Katrina & the Waves’ song “Walking on Sunshine,” we’ve created projects that share the joy and excitement that accompany warmer weather. We are excited to share our projects with you. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Nothing says warmth like being out in the sun.  So when I considered the theme of today’s hop, I immediately thought of the Sheltering Tree stamp set.  A beautiful sunny day and relaxing beneath a big tree is what I was looking for.

 

Stampin' Up!, Sheltering Tree, Jackie Beers

Sheltering Tree, 137163

 

Taking a break under the tree is such a Summer thing, and I cannot wait for it to get here.  So I was excited to make this card following today’s theme.  I picked the colors to be bright and summery as well.  The Crushed Curry from the Color Theory Designer Seres Paper Stack was perfect.  I love the added texture the crackled look of the paper gives.

My sunshine is from the SAB set Amazing You.  It makes the perfect sunbeams. The finishing touch was the Brights Enamel Shapes element of the heart to match the sentiment.  This truly was a quick card.  Since the stamp set is photopolymer it is so easy to line everything up.
