A Little Rain

I was so happy when Fable Friends carried over to the new Annual Catalog.  It reminds me of the childrens fairy tales of my youth.  Another of our Facebook challenges last week was simple an Animal.  I debated for just a minute and then went with the Goose from Fable Friends.

 

 

I paired a couple of stamp sets to make this card.  I love that the Goose is wearing a raincoat, so that was my starting point.  I wanted to give her a bright and cheery coat to wear in the rain.

I paired High Tide to get the puddled water and the grass.  The rain came from Birthday Backgrounds, and the sentiment from Love What You Do.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Framelits for the sign.  This is the trick again of cutting it out with the die leaving the excess length towards one end.   Then re-inserting it to the point you need for the proper length.  The stitching makes this so easy to do, as you simply press the stitches back onto the die.  That way you know it is lined up properly.

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.

Beautiful

Today’s card is showcasing the gorgeous Painted Season stamp set.  If you do not have this set, I strongly suggest you think about it quickly.  It goes away at the end of the month.  I apologize that the photos do not do the definition on the stamps justice.  It is one of the prettiest flowers that is in the Stampin’ Up! products right now.

 

Painted Season 149722

 

As I said above, the photo is not quite clear enough to see the great detail on the flower.  So you will have to trust me.  The other stamps are just as defined.  The leaves I stamped here are in Soft Sea Foam, so they really do not show up well in the photo.  Sorry about that.

This card is done with a technique I have not used in many years.  It goes back to my beginning in stamping and is tearing the paper.  Did you ever make cards with that touch added to them?  For this one I tore a piece of copy paper to lay across the Whisper White piece.  I then stamped the images over the paper.  After I removed the torn piece, I came back and stamped the sentiment and little leaves on each end of it.

The sentiment is from Flowering Desert and just seemed to strike me as perfect.  I thought of these flowers as beautiful from the first one I stamped.  So of course when I saw the sentiment, I knew it was the one to use.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back tomorrow as it is an InKing Royalty Blog Hop!  I know you will not want to miss the great projects that will be showcased by all my fellow team members.  And as always, the complete product list is at the bottom of the page.

Happy Spring

As I am typing this post, It is pounding rain outside with some thunder in the background.  I know these last couple of months have been difficult for most people weather wise.  I just would like to have a week of no rain!  I think this weather is what inspired today’s card!  😕

 

Fable Friends, 148670

 

LOL!!  This is how I feel.  I was looking through my stamps for inspiration and when I saw this one I knew it was perfect for this post.  I may have gone a tad overboard with my rain drops, LOL!!!, but it is how I feel right now.

I do truly love this Fable Friends stamp set.  It reminds me of my childhood reading, but the figures are just so adorable.  And the “sunshine sentiment” is a wishful thinking sentiment!.

The Stampin’ Blends have really brought back my love of coloring.  I find myself reaching for them quite often.  I hope not too often for you folks!  They were perfect for coloring these cuties though.  The rain is from Touches of Texture.  I inked the stamp with Balmy Blue and stamped off before stamping on the whisper white card stock.  And the finishing touch was the “sun” sentiment with a couple of Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.

Thank you for checking out my rainy day card.  It is supposed to be cool but no rain for a couple of days now so I will try to refrain from weather related cards 🙂

Sunshine

The title of today’s post may be a bit misleading.  I was hoping for sunshine as I made the card I am sharing with you.  I am ready to see some blue skies and sunshine!  We have had rain for several days.  I know there are people up north who have a lot of snow and freezing conditions.  I am certain they would like some sunshine as well.

My little touch of Spring and sunshine is in a fairly simple card.  I used the Incredible Like You stamp set. The card is made with only stamps from that set.  I love to do this sometimes.  It shows how well the sets can work alone.   Plus this set has some really sweet sentiments.

 

Incredible Like You, 148708

 

For this card I used shades of green and shades of yellow.  The flower is a Two Step flower.  The base color is Daffodil Delight and the definition layer is Mango Melody.  The greens are Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzaz.  The Old Olive Linen Thread (which is super nice!!!) was a last minute addition and sort of covers the bit of whimsical stripes I had placed on that end.

I did add a butterfly from the Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper Botanical Butterfly for a little added texture and pop.  The DSP is still available even though the Butterfly punch is out of stock at the minute.  Truthfully the butterflies are very easy to fussy cut, but the Butterfly punch is going to carry over to the next Annual Catalog.  That is only a couple of months away!  Wow, time is flying!!  Get the Designer Paper now and FREE during SAB, then you will have it when the punch is available again.  You cannot beat FREE products.

Thank you very much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great weekend and will return on Monday.  And as always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

Jar of Love

I hope you had a good weekend and are ready to get some more card making ideas.  I have returned to the Annual Catalog today with a little bit of the Occasions Catalog thrown in.

I loved the Jar of Love stamp set from the first time I saw it.  I grew up with Ball Jars used for just about everything, including drinking glasses!  So this was right out of my childhood.  I added some LOVE to today’s card with just a small touch.  Here is the card.

 

Jar of Love, 141587

 

Did you pick up on my LOVE?  I do adore the different words that just happen to fit on the jar!  I think this card could be used for a variety of reasons, and obviously could be done in almost any color you wanted.  That is always a win and one of the things I look for when searching for card ideas and layouts.

Everything on the jar and the stamped flowers are included in the Jar of Love stamp set.  The punched flowers are from the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack in the Occasions Catalog.  The Heart Epoxy Droplets are in that catalog as well.  Remember, they are the clear ones that can be colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

I have a tip that I used for the punched flowers.  I used the Paper Pierce Mat and the Paper Piercing Tool to give some dimension to the punched flowers.  Place the flower on the mat and use the handle end of the tool to press down into the mat.  It bends the flower pretty evenly.  And of course adding the pearl to the center is just the finishing touch!

Thank you for visiting today.  Please return tomorrow for another card idea.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.  And a gentle reminder about the Join Promotion and the awesome Shopping Spree you get with it.  I do promise that there are NO pressure sales to do more than join and place that original order.  I would love to talk with you about it.
