Christmas Rose

The Christmas Rose products will be available for customer orders beginning on November 1st.  As will the new Paper Trimmer.  I thought I would share a project with the Christmas Rose stamp set.  This is so pretty and would work for other than Christmas.  The stamp set has two cases.  There is the single stamp, which is what I used today, in Red Rubber.  The second case holds several stamps and they are in photopolymer.  They can be used to add color to the large stamp I have used.  I chose to color mine with Stampin’ Blends instead.

 

 

I stamped the large image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it using a variety of the Stampin’ Blends.  I colored the roses with Poppy Parade and used that card stock as the base and layer of the card.  The Designer Series Paper you see is from the Christmastime Is Here DSP.  I wanted a sort of subtle background for the rose.  This paper reminds me of old fashioned wallpaper.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • base is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2
  • White is 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • DSP is 5 1/4 X 4
  • Poppy Parade is 4 3/4 X 3 3/4
  • White is 4 5/8 X 3 5/8

 

Thank you for stopping by today!  Please return again tomorrow for another new project.

Sympathy in Nature

As much as we hate the need for Sympathy Cards, we still try to make them personal and pretty.  My friend who received this one loves the mountains and scenery that goes along with it.

 

 

The stamped leaves and the wood slice are from Rooted In Nature, as is the Thinking Of You.  I love the font of the sentiment!  I paired these with the embossed and die cut leaves from Gathered Leaves Dies.

The colors are Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede.  What a great and rich set of colors.  I shared the color and the beautiful leaf onto the front of the envelope as well.  I love to add a stamp to the front of the envelope.  I hope it tells the recipient there is something special inside.

The final touch for this card is the bow.  I used several strands of the Linen Thread and tied a bow.  It is adhered with another glue dot.  They are my favorite for adhering small pieces.

Measurements:

  • 4 1/4 X 11
  • 4 X 5 1/4
  • 3 3/4 X 3 1/2

Wonderful Memories for GDP174

I created this card for a friend who recently lost a loved one.  As hard as these type cards are to make, I thought this sketch is perfect for a Mother/Daughter, or two friends, for a variety of occasions.  It just so happens that it fit perfectly with the Global Design Project 174 sketch challenge.  That never happens for me!

 

Artfully Aware, 149447

Here is the sketch that my card just happened to fit.  We are given a bit of leniency on it matching the sketch exactly.

 

 

The technique I used is a fairly old one that is super fun.  I took the negative from a die cut oval and taped it to my card with removable tape.  You can also use sticky notes to hold it in place.  Then all you do is sponge inside of the cut out.  I added a little bit more in some places.  If you want a very smooth layer, try using the sponge brayer with repeated passes.  I just used one of the stampin’ sponges that is cut into pieces.  I hope you will try this technique.  Any die cut or punched shape is free game for this technique.

Thank you for visiting today!  Please come back tomorrow for another InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  There will be a lot of great projects for you to hop through.

You Are Loved!

Have you thoroughly flipped page by page of the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Catalogs?  Mine are already dog eared from being flipped through so many times.  But then I have had a head start on you. Please remember that you have access to the online catalogs by clicking on the catalog on the right side of my page.  It takes you to all three current catalogs and you can open the pdf of each.  So they are always at your fingertips!!

Now to share a new project with you.  This is a great new stamp set that pairs with an existing punch and stamp set.  Can you guess which one?  Yes, it is a match to Mary Fish’s Million Dollar stamp set and punch named Varied Vases.  This set coordinates with the punch and has great sentiments and fonts.  For me anyway, pretty fonts are a must have.  So here is my card

Stampin' Up!, Vibrant Vases, Happiness Blooms, Vases Builder Punch, Jackie Beers

Vibrant Vases, 148656

 

I love how vibrant this Night of Navy card and envelope are.  And yes, it is a new item as well!!  It is on the bottom of page 26.  The cards and envelopes come in two sizes in the package of 20.  So you get ten of each size with matching envelopes.  I especially love the striping on the inside of the flap.

This card, and the layout, are super quick and easy.  It would be great for any smaller stamp.  I chose to go with the one single vase of flowers and a beautiful sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this first day of the new catalogs!  I will have more new ideas fo you next week.  All of the supplies I used are at the bottom of the page.  But please do not stop here.  I have outlined all the great reasons for becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator right now.  Of course, this offer is good during Sale-A-Bration, so you have from now through March to consider it.  I hope you will jump on the opportunity now and begin experiencing all the great products you can choose from.

Wishing

I am sharing with you in the next couple of days cards that I made for my Stamp Club’s Fall Swap.  Then it is off to Orlando for the Stampin’ Up! 30th Anniversary!  I am so excited.  If I read the information correctly, we can share new products this time.  Usually we cannot.  So be sure and follow me on Facebook for the updates.  I may not be able to do new posts but I know I will be able to add to the Blueline Facebook page.

Now, back to the cards.  The first is from my favorite set, Wishing You Well.  I have shared a similar card before I believe.  But this is definitely a keeper in the layout department.  When making multiples this card is awesome.

 

Wishing You Well, 147864

I purposely did not put a sentiment on the front.  That is the great thing about this stamp set.  You do not need a sentiment to ground it.  The additional bonus is that you can make multiples and put the appropriate sentiment on the inside as you need a card to send.  A Win / Win situation!!

I have listed all of the information on today’s card below, as well as the supply list.  Thank you for stopping in today.  And be sure to like my Facebook page for updates from Orlando beginning on Thursday.

NOTE:   There is a new feature being tested in the Online Store.  It is “Shop the Project”.  There are pictures of a card, etc, and you can click on it and see all of the supplies used.  If you need any of them, you simply click on that item and it goes into your shopping cart.  How cool is that???  Hopefully it will be utilized and become an added bonus to the website.

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base layer of Tranquil Tide is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored and folded in half

I Am Back!!

I am back from my awesome sightseeing tour down the west coast.  We went from Seattle to San Francisco. I must say the Oregon Coast is simply breathtaking!  All of the scenery and sights were wonderful.

Today I have a pretty quick card for you.  I am trying to get back in the groove and have a lot of cards to make.  So we will get right to it this morning.

 

Dandelion Wishes, 146747

 

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I used the beautiful Tropical Escape 6X6 Designer Series Paper Stack as the main color scheme for this card.  I am really in love with this paper.  The colors are so bright and are some surprising combinations.  The colors I have used today are not something I would normally have put together.  So keep this combination to try yourself.

The three triangles, or squares if turned another way, are a great way to have a different look with stamp sets.  I chose the Dandelion Wishes set and stamped them very subtly with the Gray Granite. I used the Layering Squares to cut them and the Blushing Bride scalloped background.

Thank you for coming back to see me today!  I really appreciate it.

There are two fabulous promotions going on right now.

By joining as a demonstrator in July, you will receive as a FREE bonus to your Starter Kit (The Best Shopping Deal!!) a complete set of a color family of Ink Pads.  Yes, that is 10 ink pads at no charge!!  WOW!  And I would love to have you join my team.  So please contact me and let’s discuss it.  Ot simply click on the Join My Team button at the top of the page!

The second promotion is the Buy 3, Get 1 Free DSP Sale.  Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper is the best DSP around, and the prettiest.  So how could you go wrong when you get 1 free???  You could keep them all to yourself or share with a friend.
