You Are Amazing

Happy November everyone!  Time has flown by this year, especially the Fall.  We are close approaching the Holiday Season.  So before we get too crazy with engagements, shopping, etc., I thought it would be a good time to reinforce the Thank You and Appreciate You type of cards. And my sentiment is definitely one that would show our appreciation for a friend, co-worker, or random at of kindness.

The new Stampin’ Blends are available for you to order beginning today.  So I have CASED a card from the Stampin’ Blends Kit that Stampin’ Up! has created.  It is a wonderful way to get the feel of the blends.

These colors just POP !  I am not very good with the blends yet, but they are beautiful and I know I will have a blast playing with them.

Other than the Night of Navy, I did not really have a color combination I was working with.  I just randomly picked a few pairs of blends (They come with a light and a dark of each color) and started playing.

Tip:  I stamped flowers randomly on a full sheet of Whisper White card stock , colored the flowers, and then cut it into angles and other shapes.  A great way to try the blends and then have a variety of focal points for future cards.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I very much appreciate it.  If you have any questions about the Stampin’ Blends, or anything else stamping related, please contact me.  I hope you have an AWESOME day !!

A Simple Thanks

I usually aim for quick and easy cards.  Well today I have the ultimate of that!  The new Color Me Happy stamp set that has arrived to go with the new Stampin’ Blends is really a perfect set.  The designs are intended to be colored.  I chose the only word stamp.

The Designer Series Paper is the Whole Lot of Lovely, and it gave me the colors to use.  As you can see from these beautiful stripes, I could have chosen several that would have been wonderful.  But I went with Tranquil Tide for the base.  Because the Thank You is stamped in black, I did a narrow border of black behind the DSP and the focal layer.

I colored the shadow part of the word with the Pool Party blend and left it there.  I could have colored the entire word with the light and then the dark for the shadow.  But after doing the shadow, I decided that was sufficient.  As I said to begin with this is the ultimate Simple Thanks.

There are black dots on each side of the “YOU” of the sentiment.  To give that a little attention, I added the Black Rhinestones on each of those.  I love those little cuties!  And I must say that when I first saw them I thought there is no way those will fit on any card that I make.  HaHa!!  I was so wrong!  They are another item from the Holiday Catalog that I hope carries over.

The Stampin’ Blends will be available to customers on November 1, as will the stamp set.  I hope you will give them a try.

Fall Blessings

I began today’s card thinking really simple and quick.  Then I kept adding this and that.  And you know how it goes when that happens.  But I hope you can see the simplicity underneath my add ons.

Fall colors was the first thought I had for this card.  I wanted it to be a little on the soft side though.  So I started with Old Olive , added Peekaboo Peach, and decided to stop there.  The peekaboo peach is from the Painted Autumn DSP.

I stamped with old olive and colored the leaves with the old olive Blends.  But then I thought it had too much green.  So I went back and added the falling leaves and colored them with the pumpkin pie light blends.  Except it still did not feel just right.  So I added Julie DiMatteo’s patented marker flicking technique to get the little flecks of color to break up the stark white.  That seemed to tie in with the DSP a little better.  Finally I decided it was finished!  Yay!!

I cannot believe that I did not add any kind of accessory.  That is a first for me!!

Thank you for visiting today!  I very much appreciate your taking time to check my blog and especially for the nice comments.

Remember that the DSP special expires at the end of October, so only a few days left.  Also the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.  By clicking on any item you will be taken directly to my online store.

Thankful for Everything for GDP108

Today I have accepted the challenge to CASE the designer on the Global Design Project site.  The designer happens to be my wonderful Stampin’ Up! upline Brian King.

I made my card fairly monochromatic.  But I really like the look.  It is a very different one for me.  Sometimes different is good!  I chose my colors based on this beautiful piece of Designer Series Paper.  It is from the Delightful Daisy DSP.  I just adore it.

Because of the darkness of the Tranquil tide base and the variations of that color in the DSP, I decided it needed a border of white to make it pop a little.  The heart is from the Ribbon Of Courage stamp set and matching die cut.  I layered the heart with a die cut heart from Sweet and Sassy Framelits, which are layering hearts.

This was a super easy card to put together.  I hope you will give a try at casing either my card or Brian’s.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you like my card.  The products I used are listed below.  You can click on any item and be taken directly to my online store.  Have a great day!!

Hug In a Mug

The card I designed for today is my first one with this super cute set from the Holiday Catalog called Hug In A Mug!  Who would not love a Hug In A Mug?  I adore that name.  The set seems to be a little bit of a sleeper set possibly due to the Coffee Cafe in the Annual and then the seasonal coffee in the Holiday Catalogs.  But this one is just really cute.  I hope you will give it a look.

This card is a CASE from one of the Make ‘n Takes we did at World Card Making Day.  I loved the mug of steaming cocoa with the sentiment.  I added the hearts to the Pool Party layer to go along with the sentiment also.  Because of the quilt and the sentiment, I believe this card could be used for so many occasions.  A hug and a quilt are just year round love!

I have paired the stamp set with the Quilted Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  This quilt pattern just emphasizes the Hug!  At least that is what I think of when I see a hand quilted quilt.  Also it brings back wonderful memories of my childhood!

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

These are the unlikely trio of colors I used for this card.  I would have never added the Lemon Lime Twist to these other two.  I did pull all three colors from the DSP.  And since it works in the DSP, it must work here.   I thought it would make the sentiment POP.  I hope you agree…..otherwise you are probably thinking I have lost my mind !  LOL…

Remember that today is the last day for the World Card Making Day Sale!!  It is also the last day to sign up for the October Paper Pumpkin….remember that October and November are coordinating this year.  I cannot wait to see what they are!

One Big Meaning

For those of you who follow me each day, I apologize for missing yesterday’s post.  I did not have internet!!  Isn’t it crazy how we are so used to having this cyberspace wonder?  So funny !!  Anyway, all is well in my world again.  So here is a big Thank You card.

This Designer Series Paper, Naturally Eclectic DSP, is so bold that it wanted to be the star of the show.  So I said okeedokee and let it have it’s way.  This made for a super quick and easy card.

I pulled the colors from the DSP,  Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist, and a touch of Whisper White.  I used the, new to the 2017 annual catalog, Starburst punch as the surround for the sentiment.  And that is all there was to it.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I have listed the upcoming specials that Stampin’ Up! has ready for October 1st. Please take a look and let me know if I  can answer any questions or be of assistance.
