For My Friend

I love cards with different folds!  Today’s card sort of qualifies in that catagory.  It is a scalloped circle card.  You can make these with any die cut shape.  This one is a cute little gift card.

This little gift card, or it could be a little Random Act of Kindness card, is made using the Layering Circles Framelits.  You fold your card stock, lay the die off the fold end (so that it isn’t cutting there), and VOILA!  You have a circle card. How easy is that??  I then simple used the next two smaller scalloped circles to finish the card.

I hope you will give this technique a try!  Let me know if you do please.  I used Stampin’ Write Markers in Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Crushed Curry, and Soft Suede to color the pineapple and give it some depth.

Thank you for visiting today.  I appreciate your visits and comments very much.  I hope you have an awesome weekend! The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Flying Home

This Flying Home stamp set is just adorable.  At first glance I thought it was too similar to some other ones.  But then I thought of each of the stamps in a small frame.  A perfect Springtime sampler.  I did not go that route today though.  This is  just a sweet little 4 X 4 card that would be great for almost any occasion.

Of course, the perfect companion to this cute stamp set are the Stampin’ Blends.  I know I have been utilizing them quite a lot.  They are just so darn easy to use so I find myself reaching for them over and over.

I kept this card super simple.  It is a 4 X 4 with Night of Navy as the base, and navy layered with Whisper White is all I used.  Of course I played with a variety of colors in my flowers and birdhouse. 🙂

This card would be perfect for a Stampin’ Up! Party.  It would be easy for any level of stamper.  If you do not have a demonstrator I would love to talk with you and help you with your stamping needs.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I hope you have an awesome weekend and will stop back next week.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

A Good Day!

It is a rainy day here in the Atlanta area.  But that can still be considered a Good Day!  Today’s card is what I think of as a “pick me up” type card.  It would be great to drop in someone’s lunch or as a random act of kindness.

If you have not given this A Good Day set a second look, I hope you will.  All of the pieces are just so cute and versatile.  Today I paired it with the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper.  This is to me a SMILE card.

I made this a 4 X 4 card instead of 3 X 3 because I wanted to see more of the DSP.  I think it adds so much to the card.  The background is stamped in So Saffron ink as a soft watermark type layer.  That stamp is from Lovely Wishes.

The measurements and supplies are listed below.  I hope you have an awesome and Great Day!!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base card is 4 X 8 and folded in half
  • The DSP is 3 7/8 X 3 7/8
  • The black layer is 3 X 3
  • The white top layer is 2 7/8 X 2 7/8

Hogs & Kisses

When I was looking through my stamp sets for an idea, I happened upon the “This Little Piggy” set.  I was so happy when this set carried over into the current annual catalog.  But I have not used it very  much lately.  So I dusted it off and have a sweet little card for you.

This Little Piggy, 143922

 

I used one pig with his sentiment masked off, and then stamped the sentiment from a different pig.  The sitting up piggy is what fit the layout I had in mind.  My photography has not been great of late.  For some reason the colors are not looking true.  The rust color is actually Calypso Coral with Lemon Lime Twist.  I will have to correct that.

In case you are not familiar with the stamp set, the little image on the cross piece is little kisses 🙂  It is part of the stamp set and oh so appropriate for the sentiment.  This card could be a sweet note for someone special or a Valentine’s Day Card as well.  The bonus is that it is super quick and simple to make.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I hope you have an awesome weekend.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Friends Fur-Ever

I did something scary yesterday!  I cut apart a stamp !!! That is the first time I have ever done that.  I have seen a few cards with the We Must Celebrate stamp set and the lovable little animals.  And then I saw other demonstrators posting cards with only one of the animals, and another with several stacked on top of each other..  That was my deciding moment.  What do you think of this?

Looking at these cute faces makes me smile.  Since I have been on a coloring kick with the Stampin’ Blends for a while, these cute animals just fit right in.  In a way I think it looks like a kid colored it.  Then I look again and really liked it.  But I hope it gives you ideas for this wonderful stamp set.

The background was totally created with the Stampin’ Blends.  I like the unevenness of the grass and sky.  It gives it some depth without looking too solid.  But more that anything, I just enjoyed coloring and letting my imagination go.  I really hope you will give it a try as well.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.

So Sweet ! #GDP122

 

I saw the layout from the current Global Design Project Challenge yesterday and decided I really liked the layout.  So of course I will be submitting a card at the last minute.  The story of my life lately!  This card is super cute and SWEET though!

Fruit Basket, 145833

Who doesn’t love strawberries???  I even have a strawberry birthmark (thankfully very faded now).  So when I saw this set, I knew I had to have it.  These berries are extremely easy to line up the berry and the cap.  The set is photopolymer which makes it match perfectly.  I added some Wink of Stella to the single berry on the left, but it doesn’t show in the photograph.

I did stamp what I think would be called a “reverse mask” to do the berries outside the basket.  I stamped the basket on scrap card stock and then cut it out.  That way I could have some berries on the table in front of it.

I hope you will give this set a try.  The little fruit pieces have a matching punch set!  Woohoo! I will definitely be using that in my next card.  The supplies I used are listed  the bottom of the page.  If you have any questions, please contact me.  I love hearing from you.
