Beautiful

Today’s card is showcasing the gorgeous Painted Season stamp set.  If you do not have this set, I strongly suggest you think about it quickly.  It goes away at the end of the month.  I apologize that the photos do not do the definition on the stamps justice.  It is one of the prettiest flowers that is in the Stampin’ Up! products right now.

 

Painted Season 149722

 

As I said above, the photo is not quite clear enough to see the great detail on the flower.  So you will have to trust me.  The other stamps are just as defined.  The leaves I stamped here are in Soft Sea Foam, so they really do not show up well in the photo.  Sorry about that.

This card is done with a technique I have not used in many years.  It goes back to my beginning in stamping and is tearing the paper.  Did you ever make cards with that touch added to them?  For this one I tore a piece of copy paper to lay across the Whisper White piece.  I then stamped the images over the paper.  After I removed the torn piece, I came back and stamped the sentiment and little leaves on each end of it.

The sentiment is from Flowering Desert and just seemed to strike me as perfect.  I thought of these flowers as beautiful from the first one I stamped.  So of course when I saw the sentiment, I knew it was the one to use.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back tomorrow as it is an InKing Royalty Blog Hop!  I know you will not want to miss the great projects that will be showcased by all my fellow team members.  And as always, the complete product list is at the bottom of the page.

Part of My Story

I hope you have looked at the new releases from Sale-A-Bration.  Plus, the Organdy Ribbon was restocked and is available, while supplies last!  But one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration sets is the Part of My Story stamp set.  I really love the sentiments.  For today’s card I have mixed some Annual Catalog products with that stamp set.

 

Stampin' Up!, Part of My Story, Love What You Do, Gingham, Story punch, Jackie Beers

Part of My Story, 149719

 

I LOVE this sentiment!  I feel this way about so many people and I believe it would make for an “anytime” type card.  Or as a pick me up type card.  Did you notice the new punch with the sentiment?  It is the new release companion products to SAB.  It is the Story Label Punch.  Another great Punch, YAY!!

The stamp set I used is the Love What You Do stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  It is a favorite just because of the simplicity.  And I don’t think you can go wrong with a flower over a soft background.  The splatter is a technique of flicking the tip of a Stampin’ Write Marker with the inside of it’s lid.  It takes just a bit of careful practice and you will love it.

For this card I paired Powder Pink and Poppy Parade.  I wasn’t sure at first but I am happy with the finished product.  I do love playing around with all of the Stampin’ Up! colors.  I am often surprised at what looks good together.  To add to the colors, the Ombre Ribbon is actually Calypso Coral!  Surprise 🙂

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for a new project.

Inspire

The Artfully Aware stamp set is a wonderful stamp set and has the flexibility to show Support and Love for a number of reasons / causes.  I have used it a couple of times but have never posted one of the cards.  When I looked at it yesterday, I just thought how Inspiring people going through difficult situations can be to others.  I know I admire them for their courage and determination.  I also know that I have absolutely nothing to complain about!  Sorry for the narrative, but this is where I got the inspiration for this card.

 

Artfully Aware, 149447

 

This sentiment is from the stamp set Part of My Story.  I LOVE it!!  That is an awesome set with several perfect sentiments.  I saw this one as perfectly matching the Artfully Aware set.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I hope you have an awesome weekend and will return next week for new projects.
