Simple Get Well

I have a quick and simple  Get Well card or Thinking of You type card to share today.  Sometimes it seems we need these type cards on short notice.  I like to have some of these on hand so I can send them right away.  My memory isn’t what it used to be!! LOL!!

 

Stampin' Up!, Healing Hugs, Inspiring Iris, Jackie Beers

 

Fussy cutting may not be your idea of fun.  But this rose and leaves actually are easy to cut out.  I stamped them originally on a layer and just didn’t like the look, so out came the paper snips.

The sentiment is from one of my new favorite stamp sets, Inspiring Iris.  It is layered using the Story Label Punch and the Timeless Label punch.

The gorgeous background paper is from the Christmastime Is Here Designer Series Paper.  I have used it with the Christmas Rose set.  But isn’t it great to see that it works on a non Christmas card?  Another reason to purchase the bundle of products.

Thanks for visiting today.  Please return tomorrow.  I am participating tin the Pals Blog Hop by Mary Fish.

Love Roses

I hope you are looking at the Christmas  Rose Suite of products that Stampin’ Up! has recently introduced.   Oh My!!  It is all beautifu!  I splurged and got it all, which I usually do not do on the limited releases.  I will say, I was very pleased when it all arrived.  I cannot say enough about the colors.  The gold glitter dots and gold ribbon are the icing on the cake for me.  I even ordered the bracelet as well.  It is gorgeous.  It has a little Stampin’ Up! tag along with the rose tag.  It is adorable.

Today’s card is sharing a bit of the Christmas Rose paired with some other SU products.  As I have said before, that is one of the reasons I love SU.  The ability to mix and match is wonderful.

 

Stampin' Up!, Christmas Time is Here, Inspiring Iris, Frosted Bouquet, Timeless Label, Magnolia Lane Ribbons Combo, Roses Dies, Jackie Beers

 

The Christmas Time Is Here Designer Series Paper is gorgeous!  It has gold touches throughout.  I chose the Poppy Parade to pull from it, as well as the Mossy Meadow.  The twine is the Mossy Meadow Baker’s Twine from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo pack.

The die cut behind the sentiment is from the Roses Dies, part of this suite of products.  It is so pretty.  The sentiment is from the Inspiring Iris stamp set.  I loved this sentiment from the first time I read it in the catalog.  It is so sweet and I am blessed to have a couple of people in my life this sentiment is perfect for.  I gave this card to one of those ladies.  The sentiment is punched with the Timeless Label Punch and then layered on the tags from the Frosted Bouquet Dies.  The tag is a layer of Gold Foil and Poppy Parade.  The sentiment is stamped in the Gold Metallic Ink.

I have a link to the Christmas Rose Suite of products under the UPDATES at the end of this post.  Please take a look at the array of products.  You can order the entire suite, the stamp and dies, or any mix of the items.

Enjoy Life

I have really enjoyed playing with the stamp set Enjoy Life.  The sentiments are spot on and the images are great for encouragement and sports.  We can all use those, or at least I can.  I must have subconsciously been thinking of The Tour De France when I made this card. LOL!!

 

Actually, this was for one of the challenges while Brian King was away on our Facebook group.  It was titled Transportation.  But it does totally fit the Tour De France.

The Swirl & Curls Embossing Folder seems to be a perfect match for the bicycle.  Like the wind and he is speeding along!  The color pairing is a bit different.  I just played around and came up with Merry Merlot and Pool Party.  I never would have thought to pair these two.  I like to peruse my ink pads and look across them for different combinations.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please return tomorrow for another new project.

Winds of Change for June InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around NEW. With the launch of Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog, NEW gives us the opportunity to showcase new products and play with new colors. There are also new occasions (babies, weddings, graduations) to celebrate, so you are going to see a variety of projects in this hop. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My card reflects two of the NEW theme ideas.  I am showcasing a NEW stamp set, Winds of Change.  I looked at this set when I received my catalog and it was a must have.  As you know, I love to color with the Stampin’ Blends, and this set is perfect for coloring.  I also LOVE to travel.  Next month I am going on another Viking River Boat Cruise.  And we begin in Amsterdam!  I have never been to Amsterdam before, so this is my second NEW for the theme.  I am so excited about the trip, and am equally excited to share my card idea with you.

 

 

Even the sentiment on the card goes along with the theme!  I googled Amsterdam and looked at all of the windmills for some color inspiration.  They are typically brownish, but the blades can be different colors. I added just a touch of the Granny Apple Green to my blades to match the bottom section of the windmill building.

All of the pictures I saw were in vibrant colors, so that is what I went with.  I always prefer a mix of colors in flowers,  so I mixed my tulips and then added a whimsical touch with the butterfly.  The butterfly is from the Hold On To Hope stamp set and the Cross of Hope Framelits.  I colored it with Granny Apple and Daffodil Delight markers then die cut it.

The sentiment is done with my favorite new technique.  I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and cut to fit the size I needed.  (As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, there are several videos out there on how to do this little trick).

Amazing Life

Today is one of those days that you can be happy and sad.  It is the last day of the current Annual Catalog.  Some items are still available in the Retiring List, and have even been discounted.  Tomorrow is the NEW Annual Catalog.  It has awesome new products and carry overs of others.  Personally, I cannot wait to start exploring the NEW stuff!!

Today I am saying a fond farewell to one of the stamp sets I really love.  It is Amazing Life.  I like the sentiments and the little “accessory” stamps.  The one I am sharing is a super easy card, my favorite type of card.

 

 

See how easy this card is?  It is the perfect card layout for large sentiments or designs that you want to be the focal point.  And it doesn’t hurt that the designer series paper is gorgeous!

I chose all the colors from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper Stack.  The base layer is Soft Sea Foam.  The frame for the DSP is Shaded Spruce.  I decided to go with a third color to frame the sentient layer instead of sticking with the Shaded Spruce.  So I added Pacific Point for that layer.  The sentiment is stamped in Shaded Spruce as well.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I really appreciate it.  As always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

The Anchor

I hope you all have received the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  I think it is awesome!!  I was thrilled with the carryover stamps and the new ones are wonderful.  If you do not have a catalog, and do not have a demonstrator, please let me know.  I would love to get one of these new catalogs to you.

Today I am sharing another of the new stamp sets.  It is the Sailing Home suite of products.  You do not need to be a sailing fan to love this set.  I have seen some gorgeous samples with it.  My card today is very simple layout.

 

Stampin' Up!, Sailing Home, Come Sail Away, Jackie Beers

I used the Sailing Home Bundle and the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  I love this sentiment.  It would work for many occasions, or just a Thinking of You!  The stitched look around the sentiment shape was a surprise to me. LOL!  I guess I had not looked very closely at the photos in the catalog.

The rope and anchor are part of the dies.  I love the embossing on the rope.  The anchor has the required loop at the top so you could tie rope through it.  I simply pushed the end of the knot through the hole to give that appearance.  Easy Peasy!!

The CLEARANCE RACK is getting an update today with some Price Reductions included.  Be sure to check it out.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I appreciate you visiting to see my projects.  I will NOT have a project for tomorrow, but will be back on Monday. I hope you have a great weekend.
