Over The Moon

This is my second post for today.  The first one was about the great specials that Stampin’ Up! has to offer.  You can see that post HERE.

Today’s card is a cutie that I envisioned as soon as I saw this stamp set!  And it fits with all the great updates I mentioned in the earlier post.  I am OVER THE MOON for Stampin’ Up!.

 

 

With the color pallet I used, this could very easily be a baby card.  That was not my intention, but all you would need is a sweet “welcome” on the inside and you are finished.

I stamped everything in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with my favorite things, the Stampin’ Blends.  I colored the Moon with Dark Daffodil Delight and then added the little ring around it with the new Light So Saffron.

I am not a cow expert, but think the black and white ones are usually more black than white.  I took creative license and made it white, with a touch of black.  I wanted you to see all the details in the stamp. I gave her a bit of a feminine touch by adding Light Flirty Flamingo to the ears, nose, and mouth.

When I was trying to decide what else was needed, I thought of the moon and had a lightbulb moment that it needed stars.  The perfect stars came from the Twinkle Builder Punch.  It even has a moon that you could punch and use in place of the stamped one.  I thought the stars were the perfect size.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I was absent yesterday due to storm damage.  Luckily it was not to the house.  Sunday we had a lightning strike into the ground about ten feet from the corner of the house.  It fried the air conditioner unit, cable, internet, and an electrical breaker.  Thankfully we have friends who do those things and along with the cable company got up and running by the end of the day on Monday.  For once I was ahead and already had scheduled Monday’s post.

Bee Thankful

 

The stamp set Bee Thankful is not a new one.  It is a carryover and I realized that I have never used it in a project to share with you.  I love this cute stamp and had to go back to check that I really had not posted a project.  Oh My!!  So here is a quick and easy share of this sweet Bee.

 

 

I think the little Bee is just adorable.  And the way his, or her, eyes are looking is super cute.  I shared this card with my Stamp Club the other day.  One of the ladies said she would cut off the Bee so she could use him all the time.  I love that idea.  I have cut away sections of stamps myself.  The first time is always the hardest!!

I wanted a bit of texture to go along with the large stamp.  To do this I simply added the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder to the Crumb Cake layer.  To bring in a bit of a brighter color, I added the Purple Posy card stock layer and colored the little flower with the Purple Posy Dark Stampin’ Blend.

You know how much I love to color, so I know it wasn’t a shock to see I had colored the stamped image with Stampin’ Blends.  I will go back to other methods soon, I promise.  For this stamp, I colored the letters with Light Crumb Cake, the leaves with Light Mossy Meadow, and used both of the Mango Melody on the Bee.  I like the look that using the lighter color on his face gives.  I think it’s a bit more of the 3D look.

Thank You Big Time

I am in love with the new Scalloped Notecards and Envelopes.  I shared one with you a bit earlier.  You can see that one HERE.  But today I have really had some fun with them.  I paired it with a stamp set I was so happy carried over to the new catalog.  It is the Animal Outing set.  The animals are so cute and perfect for so many fun cards.

 

Stampin' Up!, Animal Outing, Scalloped Notecards, Jackie Beers

I think this turned out really cute.  I actually left more room between the giraffe and the tree frog than I had intended.  So I was wondering how I was going to make it work.  I thought of a “thought bubble” like you see in cartoons.  In looking at the punches I have, I spotted the Balloon Bouquet Punch and new it could easily become my talking bubble.  I am happy with how it turned out.  A lesson about being able to make a cute card when you think you have messed up!!

I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Stampin’ Blends.  I added the Glitter Enamel Dots in various shades of green and one Crushed Curry on the talking bubble.  I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners of the Whisper White layer for a bit different look.

It seemed that the white of the inside of the envelope, which shows at the bottom below the scallop, didn’t look finished.  I went searching for a DSP scrap that had the card colors and found the Mosaic Mood DSP has Crushed Curry.  I added a 1/2″ strip to the inside bottom of the card and along the bottom of the front of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will have another new project to share tomorrow morning.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

Free As A Bird Pals June Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ June  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects using “Anything with Wings”. 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 move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I am sharing birds for my “anything with wings” challenge.  This is actually my second card.  I switched from butterflies to birds.

 

Stampin' Up!, Free As A Bird, Stitched Nested Labels, Subtle Embossing, Bird Ballad, Jackie Beers

 

This is the negative of the Stitched Nested Labels that I shared on Monday’s card.  I love getting two cards from one piece.  I embossed the So Saffron with the Subtle Embossing Folder prior to cutting with the Stitched Nested Labels.  (They are bundled with the Free As A Bird stamp set!)  The gorgeous DSP is the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

The birds are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends.  I decided to fussy cut the birds to give more dimension to the card.  The trick is to turn the paper and not your scissors!  I also stamped and cut out the small flower from the stamp set to anchor the banner at the top.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you enjoyed my card and the projects of the other Blogs in the Hop.

Botanical Bliss

I have trying some new products for today, but am mixing them with carry overs.  The main new product is the Magnolia Lane Cards and Envelopes.  They are in a great Craft or Crumb Cake card stock with some silver embossing.  I love that look of elegant mixed with a more grounded color.

 

 

I paired the Botanical Bliss stamp set and dies for a different look to this base.  I stamped inside the framed area with Crumb Cake Ink, using the flower from First Frost, to add a bit of background.  I die cut the tag and then watercolored it.

I used Shimmery White Card Stock as I think it is perfect for watercoloring.  I was a bit different on my watercolor.  I scribbled with markers on a clear block and then used the Aqua Painter to pick up the ink.  It gives a softer look I believe.  However, since you cannot purchase individual markers, it would work perfectly fine to get ink in the lid of your ink pad and pick it up that way.

The Crumb Cake tag is the new Timeless Label Punch.  I shortened it to fit on the tag without hanging over the sides.  The Metallic Pearls were an add on that I believe worked well.  The red ribbon is a retired one that I found a piece in the bottom of my ribbon drawer as I was pulling out retired ones.  Couldn’t let that go!!

I also used markers and stamped the flower image onto the front of the matching envelope.  I try to remember to add that little touch.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you will reconsider, or look at for the first time, these cards and envelopes.  It is a great deal.

Amazing Life

Today is one of those days that you can be happy and sad.  It is the last day of the current Annual Catalog.  Some items are still available in the Retiring List, and have even been discounted.  Tomorrow is the NEW Annual Catalog.  It has awesome new products and carry overs of others.  Personally, I cannot wait to start exploring the NEW stuff!!

Today I am saying a fond farewell to one of the stamp sets I really love.  It is Amazing Life.  I like the sentiments and the little “accessory” stamps.  The one I am sharing is a super easy card, my favorite type of card.

 

 

See how easy this card is?  It is the perfect card layout for large sentiments or designs that you want to be the focal point.  And it doesn’t hurt that the designer series paper is gorgeous!

I chose all the colors from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper Stack.  The base layer is Soft Sea Foam.  The frame for the DSP is Shaded Spruce.  I decided to go with a third color to frame the sentient layer instead of sticking with the Shaded Spruce.  So I added Pacific Point for that layer.  The sentiment is stamped in Shaded Spruce as well.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I really appreciate it.  As always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.
