Cow Love

I will say up front that I made this card a few days ago.  I was so surprised when I checked my Stampin’ Up! Up-Line Brian King’s blog yesterday and saw a very similar card.  I dd not want you , or him, to think I copied his card.  Although it is an acceptable practice and is called CASEing.

Anyway, I made today’s card in response to the Royal Challenge we are doing on our Team Facebook page while Brian is off on the SU Incentive Trip.  I also sent it the next day to a couple I met in my travels that own a cattle ranch.  I thought of them as soon as I saw this awesome Over The Moon stamp set.

 

 

I believe I have said it before, but I think these cows are adorable.  I paired the High Tide set with the cow to get the dirt and grass for the field.

The beautiful color I chose is the new In Color Rococo Rose.  I think the name is sweet as is the color.  The plaid is from the 2019-2021 In Color Paper Stack of 6X6 DSP.  I gave it a small border of white to mimic the white showing with the cow.

The cow is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  It was die cut with the Layering Ovals Dies and backed with a scallop die from the Layering Ovals.

Here is a view of the inside and the envelope.  I was going cow crazy on this card!

 

 

Thank you for visiting today!  I really do appreciate it and hope you will return on Monday for more new projects.

Smile

I have a cute little card to share today.  But first I need to make a correction to a statement I made on yesterday’s notecard.  The Vanilla and Whisper White Note Cards ARE still available in the new catalog.  I mistakenly said they had retired.  YIKES!!!  I am so sorry, and thrilled that I was wrong.

Okay, on to today’s project.  I am sharing the Daisy Lane stamp set.  This is the new set that matches the original daisy punch, with the bonus of fitting the smaller daisy punch.  The small one is new and is a bundle to this stamp set.

 

 

After saying that the Daisy Lane has a new matching punch, I did not use it.  The flower I chose to use does not fit the punches.  It was not hard at all to fussy cut.

I stamped the ferns in Garden Green and the base of the flowers in Old Olive Ink.  The flowers are stamped in Mango Melody and then colored with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.  A super easy card to do.

One of my go to ribbons is the Linen Thread.  I wrapped it around the top two layers three times and then used three strands to make the bow.  Quick and easy and I love the texture that it adds.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you will return on Monday and hopefully I will have all of my new products put away and organized to work with.  I have been in a mess this week!!  Hopefully you have a wonderfully weekend.

Abstract Scallops

I am sharing another of the Hidden Gems in the new Annual Catalog.  Today I am excited to show you the Scallop Notecards and Envelopes.  They are replacing the White and Vanilla Notecards that retired, although they may still be available on the clearance rack.

These new envelopes are in four colors that you can match with so many of the Stampin’ Up! colors.  Here is my quick little card.

 

 

I chose to try the Balmy Blue scallop card to begin with.  They also are in pink, old olive and terra-cotta tile.  I paired mine with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I stamped the Abstract Impressions flowers on.

I used the new Purple Posy Scallop Linen Ribbon to add some texture to the bottom.  This comes in a few of the new colors and is awesome!

OOPS:  I made a mistake.  I used the Purple Posy Ink on this project.  It is the one that there were issues with the formula.  So I apologize, but it is not orderable at this time.  I am so sorry!!!

My unconventional flowers are stamped in Purple Posy ink and Rococo Rose ink.  The Purple Posy is full strength and the Rose is stamped off once.  The Old Olive for the stems are some full strength and some stamped off as well.

The scallop notecard is 3 1/2 X 5.  I cut my Whisper White layer down to 3 X 4 1/2.  It is raised with dimensional also.

Thanks for stopping in today.  I will have a more regular card to share with you tomorrow….I hope!!  But please do not dismiss these Hidden Gems when looking through the catalog.  And if you do not have a new catalog, or a demonstrator, please let me know.  I would love to get a catalog to you and help you with your stamping needs.

Sail Away Anywhere

I am running around like crazy these last couple of days.  So I have the Ultimate Quick and Easy card to share with you.  It really cannot get any easier than this.

 

 

This really sweet card is just perfect for a fellow traveling friend.  The best part, there is NO Stamping on it.  Well, there is on the inside.  I know…..It’s shocking that I would share a No Stamping card.  Well, sometimes they are just called for.  This is made with the Fabulous Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack.  These are double sided cards in two sizes.  You get a lot of them.  There are also stickers, some with place for writing if you are using it for scrapbooking.  But they are all gorgeous.

This one is 4 X 6 and I cut it down to 4 X 5 1/4.  The only thing I did to the front is to add the gold Metallic Pearl to the center of the compass.  I debated on using the silver one, but decided the old time compass would have been brass, so gold fit better.

Please don’t overlook products like this in the new catalog!  They are those hidden gems that you come to love.  Tomorrow I will have another of the Hidden Gems to share, so I hope you will return.

Hello Magnolia

Happy New Catalog Day!!  I made that up of course, but I am so thrilled to be able to order more new products.  And I am sure you are as well.

There have been quite a lot of samples of this Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.  Last night I only had a few minutes to get today’s project ready.  So I tried to do a quick and versatile card.  I am very happy with what I came up with.

 

I see this layout as a group of Thank You , and just Hello type cards for a nice gift.  I already have that picture in my mind with a cute decorative box to match.

I went with subtle colors for the magnolia to pair with.  The speckle around the magnolia is, surprisingly, from the Birthday Backgrounds stamp set.  I stamped off in Petal Pink to get the really soft splatter look.  I felt that it needed just a bit of “something else”.  So I added the two falling leaves.  I like the way it turned out.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow.  The complete list of products is at the bottom of the post.  There are not very many items used on this one though!

Cactus Bling

Today’s card is a CASE of a card I received in a swap with other PALs at OnStage in  Charlotte.  Unfortunately the maker’s card was not in the envelope, so I do not know who to give credit to for this cute card.

Flowering Desert, 148700

I gave the cactus a little flower on it’s head and added a touch of bling.  Looking at it now though, it almost looks like a much too small little hat!!  LOL!!  I am going to stick with it being a flower.

The background is the Subtle Embossing Folder which gives just enough texture without overdoing it.  I love the embossing folder for a variety of reasons.  The cactus , flowers, grass are a variety of greens and Mango Melody.

I added the ribbon in Calypso Coral with the layered sentiment for some depth.  The sentiment received a flower and bling to match the cactus.  This was a fun card to make!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I really like this stamp set and think it was under showcased.  It has the potential for some really sweet cards.  Unfortunately it is on the retiring list.
