Kindness

I hope everyone is safe and well after the nasty weather of the weekend.  We were very lucky and did not get the ice that was expected.

Today’s card is a quick and easy one that could be done with almost any stamp set and designer paper.  I used the awesome Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  I really do love that paper!!

I did a different pairing of colors than I have done previously.  I paired Coastal Cabana with Tranquil Tide. I was attempting to bring out the lighter / brighter blue in the DSP.  The positioning of the sentiment is totally to show off the beautiful DSP.  And I really like it in the corner, as opposed to centered.  Not your normal positioning and I like that as well.

I hope you liked my quick and easy card.  Please return tomorrow for a new project.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Grateful for scraps

Once again I have been playing with the pieces of scrap paper on my desk.  We all have those little strips or scraps that we have punched something from.  I really do try to keep it neat, but I do not always succeed (well, rarely succeed!).  Today’s card is more of the leftovers.

 

Country Home, 147678

 

Today’s layout is one of the easy to use classics.  Even if you do not like the card, please make note of the layout.

My background banner piece is actually a sneak peek of a DSP in the upcoming 2019 Occasions Catalog.  it is from a make ‘n take we had at OnStage that I did not make.  I believe the card called for the opposite side of this piece, but I loved the vibrancy of this side better.  I may have stamped my piece too similar to the print of the DSP.  The strip of white is stamped on with First Frost stamp set for the flower.  A definite “Keeper” set.  The little leaf is from Peaceful Noel.  It added just enough of a soft touch.

The sentiment is one of my all time favorites from the Country Home set.  That set will for sure be staying with me, and I really hope it carries over to the 2019 Annual Catalog.  It is a very versatile set with awesome sentiments.

Thank you for stopping by today!  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.  I hope your day is amazing!

Thankful

I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving today!  Spending time with those we love are , at least for me, the best part of the day.  So wishes for a day of happiness, as well as Thanksgiving, to you all.

My card today is a quick and simple stamping card, #simplestamping.  This was a challenge from Sara Douglass at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event.  She challenged us to do more Simple Stamping.  I think I do that pretty much all the time.

Falling For Leaves, 147680

 

The beauty of this card is from the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper. I hate that it is out of stock.  But I paired it with an unexpected soft color of Mint Macaron.

The only thing I did a little bit different here is the Cajun Craze curved branch.  This is from the Falling For Leaves stamp set and is a straight piece.  Since it is in photopolymer though, I can slightly curve it.  I wanted to add it to the wreath and curving it as I placed it on the clear block worked perfectly.

Thank you very much for stopping by today.  I very much appreciate it and hope to see you tomorrow.  I hope you have a great day doing whatever you love!

You’re The Best

I apologize for not posting yesterday!  I had way too much fun at the Stampin’ Up! Convention and was really dragging.  I intended to post during the day , but ended up trying to clean the mess I had left getting ready for convention.  Can you relate????

So, here is a cute and easy card I have made to thank a sweet friend.

I did use the stamparatus for the wreath background.  I began that section of the card with a totally different idea in mind.  As I made the “wreath” I changed direction.  Sometimes how my mind works is very strange!  But I do like how the card turned out, so I guess it was an ok detour.

I have posted previously how to use the stamparatus to make a perfect wreath.  You can see that post by clicking HERE.  It is a great template to have on hand.

Thee are a variety of products on this card.  I also went with a off-center layering.  I like to do that occasionally, and especially with bright designer series papers.  This is from the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  I love the vibrant colors used in all of the sheets.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I will try to share some of the great items and swaps I received in the next week.  Please return tomorrow as I will be participating in the Pals Blog Hop with Mary Fish.

Thankful Heart for #GDP163

 

Today is another of my Stamp Club Fall Swap cards.  It also fits perfectly with the challenge from Global Design Project #163.  That is to celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Anniversary/Birthday.  And to share what we all love about Stampin’ Up!.  For me, Stampin’ Up! is the definition of Friends and Sharing.  I have made some fabulous and longtime friends through Stampin’ Up!.  I cherish them all and am so thankful for what brought us together.  So my card today fits perfectly on that idea of a Grateful Heart.

I shared this type card once before on a Blog Hop.  It is the Double Z Fold Step card.  It sounds complicated but is super easy to make.  I love easy that packs a WOW.

This card layout does require designer series paper.  On this one, I mixed some DSP.  My favorite part is the sentiment though.  I LOVE that saying, as well as the mixture of fonts.  I am crazy for a mix of fonts.

Here is a side view of the Double Z.

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.
