The Best for #GDP202

I am playing along with a sketch challenge from the Global Design Project today.  I love sketch and theme challenges.  It helps my brain get moving.

 

And here is the sketch my card is based on. I stayed pretty true to the sketch I believe.

 

 

My husband asked me to make a Thank You card for him last night.  And when I saw the challenge today, I thought it would be a great basis for the card.  The sentiment is from A Big Thank You, and fits perfectly on a banner.  I stamped a pretty scripted Thank You on the inside of the card.

I totally LOVE the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper, so I placed it as the main focal point.  The background for the tag is from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set.  It is stamped off first in Sahara Sand.  I tried to make it a bit similar to the DSP instead of a simple white banner.

The scalloped ribbon at the bottom is new in the Annual Catalog.  It is the Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Thread.  The ribbon comes in all of the new In Colors.  I thought it worked perfectly with the colors and DSP I chose.  I ran a piece of Tear & Tape along the bottom edge of the DSP to adhere the ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I really appreciate it.

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.

Something For You

I am sharing something a bit different today.  I am showing you the June Paper Pumpkin Kit, or at least part of it.  In case you do not subscribe to Paper Pumpkin, it is a box of wonderful products that arrives in your mailbox once a month.  We do not know ahead of time what is in the box.  Generally it is cards with all of the embellishments, glue dots, ink, and a stamp set.  The June PP was one I really LOVE!!!  It included mini cards to keep in a little folder in your purse.  I love having the 3 X 3 cards in my purse to hand out to folks that I appreciate when I am running errands.  This little pocket will be wonderful to hold those.

 

 

The little blue folder is the holder and these are two of the cards in the kit that I put together.  I never make them exactly as the pictures show!

I also made one of my 3 X 3 cards to go in the pouch as well.  Here it is.

 

I made several of this little card for my purse stash.  I used the wonderful new Host Rewards Stamp Set named Time For Tags.  The stamps match the Timeless Label Punch that is also new.

For this card I used Whisper White as the card base and layered the new 2019-2021 In Color 6 X 6 Designer Paper stack.  I stamped the image with Terracotta Tile Ink and then colored it with Stampin’ Blend Markers.  To give a little bit of different color behind the tag, I added a Mossy Meadow punch with the Story Label Punch.  It partners very well with the Timeless Label Punch.

I hope you will consider making the 3 X 3 cards to have on hand “Just Because”.  It is a nice way to hopefully brighten someone’s day.  They also are perfect as Gift Tags.  And it is easy to match your gift decoration.

Healing Hugs

I am trying to go back and use stamp sets that have carried over to the new annual catalog and show them some love.  Sometimes we get so excited with the New that we forget the really awesome sets.  Today I am showcasing Healing Hugs.  It is a beautiful flower with some sweet sentiments.

 

I love these bold colors.  I paired Mango Melody with Mossy Meadow.  The Layered Leaves Embossing folder really shows off on the darker card stock.

I stamped three of the flowers in Mango Melody.  Two are on the white layer and one was on a scrap piece.  I fussy cut the third one and them layered it with dimensional to give some definition to the flowers.  I know it is a bit difficult to see in the photo.

The sentiment is from another carryover stamp set, Stitched All Around.  The lovely Mossy Meadow linen thread is part of a combo ribbon  pack.  It is named Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo and is part of the Magnolia Suite of products.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I would love to hear from you.  There are some specials listed further down in the post, as are the complete list of supplies.

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.
