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!!

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.

I hope you have a great day and I appreciate you stopping to see my card for today.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Here’s To A Good Day!

I am doing a different look to one of the cutest sets in the Occasions Catalog.  And Yes, I am referring to the A Good Day stamp set.  I have used it quite a lot, but isn’t that why we purchase sets?  I have definitely enjoyed this one!!

A Good Day, 145873

 

 

I CASED this card from a card I found when going through some old swap cards.  I love finding inspiration in older cards.  (And it justifies me having a bunch of stuff hanging around!)  In truth though, it is another quick and easy card to make.  So I hope you will CASE this one as well.

I stamped and colored with the Stampin’ Blends the cute little animals from the stamp set.   I had already decided my second color was going to be Calypso Coral.  So I gave each animal a touch of it and then used it as the scalloped circle color.

To give some definition to the Island Indigo base, I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool ( A Must Have tool !!) and scored around all four sides.  Of course that didn’t seem to be enough.  I then added the scores across the center.  That made me happy and I was finished.  Sometimes it is just the little things that finish a card.

Thank you for visiting today.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page. I hope you like this card and will come back tomorrow for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop.

As Sale-A-Bration is winding down, (only 2 weeks left.) I hope you will consider joining my BlueLine Team of Stampers. You would also be joining the InKing Royalty Team as well.  We have an awesome group of very talented demonstrators and we love sharing ideas with each other.  Contact me and lets chat about it!

Happy Life !

I have done a little soft layering today.  A bit of a different approach for me.  I wanted this to be a softer card and it is that along with being just “less”.  So very different than my normal.

 

Stampin' Up!, Basket of Wishes, Jackie Beers, stampinup, jackiebeers

Basket of Wishes, 142200

 

I really love this stamp set, Basket of Wishes.  So many good things come in baskets.  Especially back when I was a child.  And as I said earlier, I wanted this to be a little softer look.  So I went with the background stamp from Hello Friend, and then added the basket in front of it.  The succulents fit perfectly in the basket.  The fact that it is a photopolymer set is AWESOME !  I love how easy it is to layer with the see through photopolymer.

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

The soft suede makes the perfect color for the basket.  I then used the Stamp ‘n Write Markers in Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzaz and Wild Wasabi to color the basket and the  succulent plants.  Super Easy!!

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you enjoyed this quick and simple card.

Time is running out to try the Paper Pumpkin for March!!  And since it is the 5th Anniversary of Paper Pumpkin, there will be a little gift in the box as well.  But you must be signed up by 11:59pm on the 10th to receive the March box.  I hope you will give it a shot.

Sweet Strawberries

Between the Tutti Frutti Designer Series Paper Stack and the matching Tutti Frutti Cards & Envelopes, there was nothing to do but add a sentiment. Of course the sentiment is from the stamp set Fruit Basket!  I have made up a couple of gifts from these products.  They are just perfect.  And to top it off, they are full size cards and envelopes.  So no problem in mailing them.  Easy Peasy!!!

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will give these products a second look.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.
