You’re The Best

I was so excited when I saw this typewriter set in the new Annual Catalog.  It reminded me of a favorite from a few years ago.  I have made several Thank You 3X3 cards with it that I have not shown here.  So today I have a full size card to share.

 

P.S. You’re The Best, 146516

 

I used only the stamps included in the stamp set.  I love being able to complete a card with only one stamp set.  The background blue layer is Balmy Blue stamped with Balmy Blue Ink.  The blue of the center is Balmy Blue Ink applied with an Aqua Painter.

I stamped the typewriter and then used a mask to place over it to stamp the flowers.  One flower is stamped and fussy cut out to give some depth.  They were all colored using Stampin’ Write Markers.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Blog Hop card as well.  Please be sure and check back on Monday, but also next Wednesday is the InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  There will be lots more great ideas for you.

A Fall Blended Season

I debuted the Blended Seasons Bundle during the July InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  You can see that card HERE.   This stamp set is only available during August and While Supplies Last!  The stamps are perfect for Spring/Summer, Fall, and Christmas.  But the Framelits are spectacular.  They match a few of the stamps but the best part are the three layers that are stitched!  They are stitched inside the cutting line and leave stitching around the outside of the cut out.  It’s a super look!  Take a look at today’s Fall inspired card.

 

Blended Seasons Bundle, 149894

 

 

I used one of the layering dies from the matching framelits so you can see the stitching.  The background is the Subtle Embossing Folder.  The leaves are part of the Blended Seasons set as well as the Die Cut leaf.

I stamped the leaves in Cherry Cobbler Ink and then used the Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen to color the leaves.  The sentiment is from the precious Host Stamp Set – Very Vintage.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great weekend and will return to see my Monday project.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

Don’t forget about Bonus Days!!!  For every $50.00 you spend (at one time) during August, you will receive a coupon code worth $5.00 to use in September.  It’s like getting paid to shop!

Darling Label Thanks

I adore Stampin’ Up!’s punches.  So I was very excited to see the Darling Label Punch in the new catalog.  Yes, it is a bit pricy.  But you are receiving a Bundle.  You get a precious stamp set that coordinates with the punch.  You also get a beautiful blue and copper tin the bundle is packaged in.  The gorgeous tin is a gift in itself and would be great packaging for a gift to someone special, or yourself!  So here is today’s project showcasing this set.

 

Darling Label Punch, 146855

 

 

The Darling Label punch is the small center one.  I paired it with the Everyday Label Punch.  The stamp is one of the coordinating stamps in the bundle.  I did my first paper piecing in a while.  But I think the dimension it gives was well worth it.

If you are wondering about my background, it is the Clear Block G.  Yes, I used the clear block as a stamp and used my Stampin’ Up! Grid paper to line it up (fairly) straight.   I wanted something a bit different.  The flower is from the Love What You Do stamp set.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I very much appreciate it and would love for you to leave a comment.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

3X3 Notecards

Today’s projects are a continuous of the notecard and post it note holder of yesterday.  I am simply showing you the cards I made to go in it.  I used the same Share What You Love DSP and even some scraps of it for these quick and easy cards.  I made several more than the packet will hold so I have them on hand to refill.  Actually this entire project is going to a friend. 🙂

 

Share What You Love DSP, 146926

 

 

The stamp set the Thank You is from is Tropical Chic.  When I used it earlier in the week, I fell in love with the script of the sentiments.  This is a perfect example of why not to throw away your DSP scraps!

Thank you for visiting again today.  I hope you will be back on Monday for some new projects.

The Greatest

I have found myself using quite a bit more Designer Series Paper in the last few months than I ever have.  I am not sure why, but I am loving all of the DSP in the new Annual Catalog from Stampin’ Up!.  They do know how to pick beautiful paper.  Today’s card is carrying on that trend.  I have used the Tropical Escape DSP.

 

Tropical Chic Bundle, 148339

 

Since this DSP debuted I have  used more Blushing Bride card stock than in the last several years.  Suddenly it is perfect to pair with several different colors.  Here is my color combination for today.  It came from the DSP of course.

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

 

The Granny Apple Green layer is the Bokah Dots stamp set.  I love the look of texture it gives!  For the flower, I used the Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker to color the entire flower.  I then took the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker and lightly went around the edges and the inner lines.  Mango Melody is the perfect bright color to compliment the others.  The sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade as well and punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch.  The edge is also from the Poppy Parade marker.  I simple ran the side of the brush tip around the edge of the cut out.  Easy Peasy!  Having the matching Framelits for this stamp set makes this a very quick card.  I love that….

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base Card of Blushing Bride is 4 1/4 X 11
  • Shaded Spruce layer is 5 1/4 X 4
  • DSP layer is 5 3/8 X 3 7/8
  • Blushing Bride small layer is 3 5/8 X 2 1/2
  • Bokah Dots layer is 3 1/2 X 2 3/8

A Big Thank You

I know I tend to say I LOVE a stamp set or product.  And I suppose that is why I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I like their products more than any other stamping company.  And I do like most all of the stamp sets.  But here I go again……I love the Animal Outing stamp set.  At first glance you may think it is for children and I don’t do many children’s cards.  Please look at it again!!  I rarely do a child card, but I am in love with these images.  So here is another Animal Outing Card.

 

Animal Outing, 146600

 

 

I think the expression on the Rhinoceros is like a very humble “you are welcome”!  Or maybe I am losing it ! LOL…

I very much like (love) the Stampin’ Blends, and am so happy they are back in stock plus the addition of quite a few new colors.  Although this stamp does not require blending, I still used the light and the dark of the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.  I simply went over the darker areas with the darker shade and it magically blended itself.  Yay Me !

I also have a little paper tip for you.  Never throw away your paper scraps, especially the ones where you trim 1/8 or 1/4.  That is what I used for my gray stripe to break up all of the yellow.  How handy is that???

Thank you very much for visiting today!  I greatly appreciate it.  I have listed the measurements a little further down.  Also, be sure and check back tomorrow for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop!  You will get some great holiday ideas!

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • DSP strip = 1 7/8 X 5 3/8
  • Gray strip = 1/2 X 5 3/8
  • Yellow layer = 3 1/4 X 3 1/2
  • White layer = 3 X 3 1/4

 

Don’t forget the JOIN Special and get 10 new InkPads FREE, or the Buy 3 get 1 FREE of DSP during July !!
