Blossoms

Today I am sharing one of the New Release Sale-A-Bration Items.  It is subtle on the card, and that is a great definition of the item.  Have you guessed what it is?  Yes, It is the So Very Vellum.  And it is more beautiful in person.  I love the soft colors.

 

 

The vellum comes with this embossing already done for you.   All of the sheets have the same embossing.  The vellum I chose for the background is the Soft Sea Foam one.  I used the Highland Heather Vellum for the flowers.  They are die cut using the Dies from Forever Blossoms Bundle.  The embossed vellum gives an added definition to the petals.

The stamp is from the Forever Blossoms stamp set.  It also is die cut using the bundled dies.  That is such a great focal point for any design you could come up with.

I stamped in Smoky Slate Ink and then colored with Soft Sea Foam and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends.  For the bow, I used the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  It is simply wonderful to work with.  I don’t usually do multiple loops with ribbon, but this is so silky and thin I went for it.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I have new projects each day to share with you.  And this coming Wednesday is the InKing Royalty Blog Hop, you will not want to miss that.

Music

Happy Valentine’s Day to all!  When I made this card, I did not realize, or I didn’t think of it being Valentine’s Day.  I just adore this stamp set.  It is the Music From My Heart.  I saw a sampler someone had made the other day and it was so pretty.  I decided to make a card from that idea.  But for a music lover, or music teacher, the sampler would be an awesome gift!

 

 

I am not a Red and Black person at all.  But I love it for this card.  They seem to just fit this perfectly.  I have a couple of layers going on with this card.  I usually layer, but this is a bit more even for me.  I just didn’t like the black on the red then red on the black.  I felt like it needed to be broken up a little.   The thin Whisper White layer fixed it for me.

I stamped all of the images in either Memento Tuxedo Black, my GoTo black, or in Real Red.  The squares are from the Layering Squares Dies.  I used the smallest ones that would fit my idea.  The Real Red Ribbon down the side is the Real Red Double Stitched Ribbon from the Mini Catalog.  I was so happy that I had that.  I was trying to make it work with a White ribbon and it just wasn’t the perfect thing.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you have an Awesome Day and Wonderful Weekend!!

February Pals Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because this month’s theme is “Art from the Heart” and we think you’re going to love it! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My card is definitely from the heart.  It is covered in hearts and is perfect for anyone you love.  But it does not have to be for Valentine’s Day.  This one would be appreciated at any time.  Besides the hearts, I have an unexpected choice to pair with them.

 

Stampin' Up!, Waterfall Card, Over The Moon, Jackie Beers

 

I have made a Waterfall Card to share my From the Heart theme.  I had not made one of these in years.  The ones I have made previously were single layer with the waterfall on the front and you added your wording to the bottom of the waterfall.  This one is a bit different in that I placed the waterfall on a full size card.  So you have the inside to add extra sentiment and your love.

Here are some of the pulls to show the different images.

I hope this gives you a different perspective of the Over The Moon set !  I think these guys and gals are just adorable and a fit for many occasions..

I am going to do a quick video on how I made this, but I am sure there are several on YouTube already.  I will say that the most important aspect of the building of your layers, is to not glue down the cross bar.  That has to be secured with brads or in a way that only the edges of the strip are attached.  Otherwise your waterfall cannot pull through.

I have listed all of the supplies i used  at the bottom of the post. Don’t forget to take a look.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 11th, for our “Critter Card” blog hop when our Design Team showcase projects with animals, birds, butterflies or insects. Don’t miss the fun!

Someone Special

I am not quite over Valentine’s Day cards, even though I have shared quite a few.  I have another one for you today.  This one with a change of colors would work for many other occasions.

 

 

I think this little racoon is adorable.  And that is saying a lot since we had a family decide to check out our garage and the cat food!!

I have mixed several products for this card, but only one stamp set.  It is the Special Someone and it so darn cute.  I stamped the racoon base in Gray Granite (probably would have looked better in Smoky Slate) then the second layer stamped in Soft Suede.  The balloon is stamped with Flirty Flamingo for the first stamp and Real Red for the top stamp.

The layers are all from the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I felt it needed something else, so added the one red heart.  It is the heart out of the Dog Builder Punch.  I angled the sentiment more for a space reason than layout.  Although I like it raised above the other plus it shows off the DSP.  The paper is the From My Heart Designer Series Paper.

Thank you for checking in today.  All of the supplies I used are at the bottom of the page.  Please return next week for more new projects.  And don’t forget about Sale-A-Bration deals as well as the AWESOME JOIN PROMOTION.  You can read about the join promotion in the next paragraph.

Heart of Music

Reminder that today begins your opportunity to purchase the New Release Dies and gorgeous Designer Series Paper that pairs with sets from Sale-A-Bration and Mini Catalogs.

I have a #simplestamping card for you today.  This is quick, simple, and adorable!  The #simplestamping is usually Ink/Paper/Stamps.  They are perfect for those new to stamping with limited supplies.  But they are also great for multiples of cards, a quick card, or just a fun cute card.  The Fun and Cute is what I was aiming for today.

 

 

This stamp set was the one I wanted first from the Mini Catalog.  It is Dawn Olchefske’s Million Dollar stamp set. I do not have a musical bone in my body, but I do appreciate music and those who can create it.  And I especially love the pieces of this stamp set.  They are especially great for this style of card.

I kept this card to only two layers, which is very unusual for me!!  I sponged Coastal Cabana Ink in the bottom left of the Whisper White card stock.  I then stamped the sentiment and the piano in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  It is my “go to” black ink.  The speckles you see are from “Flicking” the Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker against it’s cap to splatter the ink onto the paper.  If you do not do it very hard, and you do not need to, it does not hurt the marker tip at all.

As a finishing touch, I did add a heart at the top of the sentiment.  It is one of the Heart Epoxy Drops.  I left it clear instead of coloring it for a softer look.  It may be so soft that you cannot see it in the photo!! 🙂

Thank you for stopping by today!  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.

Someone Special

You could say I am carrying over yesterday’s Valentine Blog Hop with InKing Royalty.  I have made a sweet and loving card using the new stamp set Special Someone.  It is an accurate name for an adorable set.  It reminds me of the Nature’s Beauty stamp set that was in the Holiday Catalog and carried over.

 

Stampin' Up!, Someone Special, Stitched So Sweetly, Bird Ballad, Jackie Beers

 

This card was made with the First Sketch from Mary Fish’s Stampin’ Pretty Sketchbook.  #sps001.  She shared the sketch on 01/13/2020.  Here is the sketch.

I noticed in the Mini Catalog samples for Special Someone that the Squirrel and the Rat are facing each other.  And even though I really, really, really dislike rats or mice, I do love the set. So they were my little love couple.  The lovebirds are cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I love the scalloped edge.  And with the stitching they are very easy to adjust the size, which is what I had to do to shorten the piece for fit the couple.

I used a solid piece of Calypso Coral card stock behind the loverbirds and layered it on top of a great piece of DSP from the Bird Ballads Designer Series Paper.  The Burlap Ribbon and Linen Thread are perfect partners.  I needed something for the dots on the DSP so pulled out the faithful pearls.  I colored them with the Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  If you have not tried this, you really should.  They dry almost immediately and you can then have dots in any color you need.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.
