You Make Me Smile

I want to share some sunshine here and make you all relax and hopefully Smile!  So the next couple of posts are going to be along those lines.  Today I have a daisy, which is simple flower that always makes me smile.

 

 

I have a mix of bundles for this card.  The Daisy Lane stamp set debuted in a previous catalog as a bundle with the Medium Daisy Punch.  Although they are no longer a bundle, they are both in the current catalog.  The other is the Many Mates Bundle.  It is the sentiment and the background for the daisies.  The sentiments for this set are varied and a mix of fonts.  The mixed fonts are always a favorite of mine.

I also used the Lovely Label Punch for the sentiment.  I adore the two different shapes for the ends of the punch.  In case you missed it.  I did a tip in one of last weeks posts that shares how to get the equal distance on each end of your sentiment.  Click HERE to go to that post.  The tip is in the middle of the post.

For the daisies, I punched four daisies to make the two flowers.  I fussy cut the small daisy and the fern.  The fern was an experiment.  I stamped it on Whisper White card stock, and to say it didn’t look good was mild.  The white actually shined, in a bad way!!  So I used my Light Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blend and went over the entire leaf.  I was happy with that.  I was trying not to use another set of dies to get some greenery.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another Smile project.

Just Because

When I mentioned yesterday that I would be up early to make my new catalog order, I  obviously did not read the “Go Live” time.  🙁  It is not until 12PM Mountain Time.  So for those near me in the Eastern Time Zone, we do not go live until 2PM.  That is so sad.  I was all excited to get up early and get my order in.  It just means longer anticipation.

For today’s card, I am doing a little bit of #simplestamping.  The card I made could not get any simpler.  That does not mean it is not a cute card.  I personally love it.

 

Stampin' Up!, Lovely You, Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack, Just Jade, Jackie Beers

 

I have showcased two New items.  The main sentiment layer is one of the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack pieces.  That is a mouth full!!  But these cards are so pretty.  If you are not familiar with the Memories & More line of products,   They are on pages 154-155 in the New Annual Catalog.  They can be used for journaling, photo backgrounds, and cards, as well as scrapbooking.  The sentiment is from the Lovely You stamp set and is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

The base of the card is one of the Whisper White Note cards and Envelopes.  I cut a piece of the new Just Jade card stock to fit the dimensions of the card.  But that left extra space on each side of the M&M card.  So I placed it over to the left, with equal edging.  I then added a piece of the Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon on the extra space on the right hand side.  Easy Peasy!!

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you have your wish list ready to go.  If you do not currently have a demonstrator, I would love to take care of your crafting needs.  Feel free to contact me with any questions.  I have a host code listed on the right hand column, if you are on a computer, or below if on phone or tablet.

Paper Pumpkin Love

The title for today is what I am doing.  I am giving some Love to Paper Pumpkin kits.  I do not normally share the Paper Pumpkin cards here because once I have received mine it is too late for you to sign up to get this one.  Although you can sometimes get some of the past kits.

I thought I would show you how great the stamp sets are and that you can mix them with other Stampin’ Up! products to make a totally different card.  Here is what I made.

 

 

I paired the March Paper Pumpkin Kit with some of the Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes from the Annual Catalog.  I stamped the images on a piece of smaller card stock then layered it to the notecard with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I truly adore these rain boots!!  They are what made me decide to share with you.  They are a two step stamp. The outline of the boot is one stamp and then the overall flowers are a separate stamp.  So the flowers could be any color making your boot colors whatever you feel like for the day.  I wish I could do that in real life!!  With all the rain over the last three months, and its raining again!, I would love to have a variety of rain boots!

I wanted the flowers to be a little bit behind the rain boots to show some depth.  When I stamped the outline of the rain boots, I also stamped it on a scrap piece of paper.  I used the Paper Snips to cut out the left one.  After I had stamped the color for the boot, I placed the mask over the outline and stamped the flowers.  I use just a tiniest bit of snail adhesive in one spot to hold my mask in place.

Paper Pumpkin is a once a month box of fun stamping that arrives in your mail box.  You can purchase one month as a test to see if you like it.  Or, you can purchase multiple months.  You an even give it as a gift to someone you know would love a crafting gift that arrives each month.  The cost is 22.00 a month plus tax.

Here is a link to a video about the next Paper Pumpkin.  Click HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I have included in the Supply List the items I used that are not part of the PP box.

Just A Note

I have a quick “note” card for you today.  I adore the Music From The Heart stamp set and this is one of the reasons why.  You can make really cute quick cards.

 

 

I do not have any musical ability, but I love music and those who can make music.  This is the only kind of music that I can play with.  I am thrilled with the quick and easy cards this stamp set helps me to create.  For this card I added the Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper.  It is absolutely gorgeous!  And the fact that you can color it is just an added bonus!

I colored the flowers in the DSP with the Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends.  I colored the heart on the inside curl of the note as well.  To keep the card simple, I stamped in Smoky Slate Ink and used Smoky Slate as the backing for the two layers.  I think Smoky Slate is a great partner to most colors.  It works absolutely perfect with the Rococo Rose for this card.

I kept it simple with just the two colors and the gorgeous Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper.  I hope you will give this stamp set and this gorgeous paper another look.  Since the Flowering Foils DSP is a Sale-A-Bration item; if you order the stamp set, Rococo Rose and Smoky Slate card stock, Smoky Slate Ink, and Rococo Rose Blends Combo pack you have 52.00 and that is 2.00 over what you need to get the DSP FREE!  Great Deal!  And the ability to make a lot of beautiful cards.

Measurements:

  • Card base is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2
  • DSP Base of Smoky Slate is 3 1/4 X 4 1/4
  • DSP is 3 X 4
  • Note Base of Smoky Slate is 2 1/2 X 3 1/4
  • Whisper White is 2 1/4 X 3

 

Thank you for looking in today.  Please come back tomorrow as we are doing the monthly InKing Royalty Blog Hop with the theme of Easter.

Kindness Rules

Hello Everyone!  It is so good to be back to stamping!  If you are new to me, I had hip replacement surgery two weeks ago.  Actually two weeks ago today.  I am recovering wonderfully!  I have been pleasantly surprised how easy it has been so far.  So woohoo!!

It was so hard to know that my stamps were only a floor below me and I had to wait a while to get to them.  I made it on Sunday, but didn’t get everything finished.  My first card was a Thank You card for a friend who was sweet to include me in an event that I thought I would have to miss.

 

 

For a quick card there is nothing better than Designer Series Paper scraps and the Stampin’ Up! Notecards and Envelopes.  My desk was left in a bit of a mess.  But for once it worked in my favor.   The DSP is the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  It is two sides of different sheets.  The scalloped tag is from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  It was also an extra that was leftover from my Stamp Club.

I had stamp club the Sunday before my surgery and didn’t really get everything put away.  The DSP, and the extra pieces that I had cut were still on my desk.  Easy Peasy for a card!  I stamped the sentiment, which is from Dressed To Impress, as is the flowers.  The flowers are colored with Stampin’ Blends.

I layered the DSP a variety of ways and then thought of this layout with a scrap square.  Perfect fit.  A quick and cute card.

Thank you for waiting on me to return!  Tomorrow is the Pals Blog Hop, and I was able to get a card made so I will be playing along.  As a Bonus for the Hop, some of us are doing Blog Candy giveaways!  Please leave a comment on my post tomorrow.  (I do love when you let me know what you think of my cards!)  But tomorrow leave a comment and on Friday I will choose one person randomly to receive some Blog Candy.  I will announce on my blog and then send a seperate email to get your mailing address.  So please play along!

Hey Lady !

I have decided to carry on with the Ladybug cards.  I just adore this cute stamp set.  Yesterday’s card was all from the stamp set and matching Ladybug Dies.  You can see that card HERE if you missed yesterday, or go to the gallery at the top of the page. Today I added a few other Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Mini Catalog items.

 

 

The basics of the card are the same as yesterday just minus the large flower.  This little ladybug brought her own flower and I added one as well.  This flower is from the Small Bloom Punch that is Free with a $100.00 order in SAB.  (This punch is going to carry over to the next catalog, so it is extra special to get it free!) I punched the flower with Mango Melody card stock. I also colored a Basic Pearl with Real Red Dark Stampin’ Blend Marker for the center of the flower.

I colored a second item with the Stampin’ Blend Marker on this card as well.  Have you noticed what it is?  Besides the ladybug!  If you guessed the ribbon, then you are correct.  The ribbon is the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon in Whisper White.  I barely touched the Light Call Me Clover Stampin’ Blend to the ribbon and it colored in a snap!  It was pretty amazing.  Realizing I can have any color ribbon I want and in a light or darker shade is super amazing!!  I believe I need to stock up on this ribbon.  It is in the Occasions Mini Catalog.

The last new item I used is the Label Me Fancy Punch.  The sentiment is cut out using it.  I love the shape it gives.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I will have another new project for you tomorrow.
