Modern Heart

I have a project today using the Modern Heart Stamp Set.  I have not used it previously.  And that was a mistake.  I really love all of the stamps in the set.  I especially like it when one stamp set is all I need to make a really cute card.  And this one has a variety of sentiments to choose from.

 

 

This card began with the stamp set and my wanting to use the Shimmer White Embossing Powder.  The outline of the heart with all the criss-crossing lines seemed to be perfect for embossing.  I added the Night of Navy background that was stamped off a bit first.

The designer series paper is a piece of the Perennial Essence DSP that was left from another project.  The Navy in it seemed perfect for the look I had going.

The Shimmer White Embossing Powder has some sparkle to it, but because the lines of the heart are fairly thin, it didn’t show as much as I would have liked.  To help this a a bit, I backed the piece with some of the Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  It may be a little difficult to see in the photo.

Thank you for visiting again today.  Please return on Monday for another new project.

Mosaic Thank You

I realized as I was typing this post that I am using the Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper two posts in a row.  Sorry about that.  But it may give you ideas of your own for this gorgeous paper.

 

Stampin" Up!, Memorable Mosaic, A Big Thank You, Cup of Cheer Dies,Jackie Beers

 

The shades of green in this sheet of the DSP is just WOW!  And I love the specks of Soft Suede thrown in.  I had to layer the Soft Suede to help those specks pop a bit more.  The shading on the tree is from the stamp itself.  I love that Stampin’ Up! has done this effect on several stamp sets.  It is like you used two step stamping but really didn’t need to.  A win for sure.

The tag on the tree is from the Cup Of Cheer Dies.  The perfect layering is one of my favorites.  I simply added the little bow using a couple of strands of the Linen Thread and attached it with a glue dot.  I would be lost without the glue dots.

I have listed all of the supplies at the bottom of the post.  If you shop with me and spend under $150.00, please use the Host Code below.  Any order of $50.00 and over in product will receive a small gift from me.  And don’t forget the DSP Sale!  All of the DSP choices that are included in the sale are listed on the flyer below.  You can click on it to enlarge it.

Simple Thank You

I have a #simplestamping type card today.  It is just paper and ink with a little bow added.  You know how I love designer series paper.  This card uses those leftover pieces that you may think are too small to use.

 

#simplestamping, Stampn' Up!, Jackie Beers, A Big Thank You

 

I have said several times how much I love the 2019-2021 InColor DSP.  My love of the paper resulted in quite a few of these little strips.  So I decided to make them the focal point of a Thank You card for a sweet friend.

I chose the A Big Thank You stamp set.  The fonts and sentiments are wonderful.  I used the small heart to give a border down the side.  It is stamped in Rococo Rose Ink on the card stock.  The sentiment is from the same set and is backed by a different scrap of the DSP.

The only additional thing I added was the little bow.  It is the Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine that I attached using a glue dot.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I have had some issues with the email version of my post the last two days.  That should be fixed now thanks to the wonderful Brian Watt at Integrant Services!!

 

Measurements:

  • Base is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2
  • sentiment layer is 1 7/8 X 1 3/8 for DSP and 1 3/4 X 1 1/4 for Whisper White
  • The strips are 2 @ 1/2 X 4 1/2, and 1 @ 1/2 X 4

Textures

I have what I consider a very Clean card to share today.  To me, Clean means it doesn’t have much going on.  I kept looking at the card wondering what it needed or what I should add.  I didn’t want to leave it like this.  But then I decided anything I added would not work.  So here is a bit of a different look for me.

 

Can you believe there is No Designer Series Paper?  I was shocked myself!  LOL!!!  I have been intending to use this die for some time.  I saw another card with the flowers created as I have done.  I apologize that I cannot remember who created it!!  But ever since then I have wanted to do this.

Creating the added color in the flower is very simple.  I cut the design from the top layer in the Bermuda Bay Card Stock.  I pushed out and saved all of the petals.  I then did the same with a piece of So Saffron Card Stock.  I adhered the top layer to the card base. ( I do love the look of Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay!)   All I did to adhere the petals was put just a dot of Multipurpose Glue in the slot and lay the petal inside.  I had my paper piercer ready in case I needed to slide the petal around at all.

The sentiment really hit home with me.  I have been trying to grow my Stampin’ Up! Team and have friends who tell me that I can do it.  One especially is helping me come out of my “norm” and be more creative in my plans, so this sentiment was spoke to me.  I layered the Story Label and Timeless Label punches.

The only accessories that I added for this card was the pearls at the center of each flower.  I felt like it needed more but just couldn’t think of anything that would Help, as opposed to being Too Much.  So here you have it.  A Clean card from me.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I know it is a Holiday and some of you will be working anyway.  I had one of those jobs that didn’t take off for weekends and Holidays.  I hope you all have a good day though.

Together

Today’s project is a cute little card that uses unexpected stamp sets.  I adore humorous stamp sets.  Sometimes they are just the perfect way to deliver a message.

 

I think this chick is adorable.  Plus I don’t know if you have noticed all of the beautiful paper in the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.  I have used it for a couple of cards recently.  It just seems to match the theme of my card.

The chick is from the Birds of A Feather stamp set in the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  It has birds that fit a variety of holiday occasions.  For today’s card I paired it with a sentiment from a different Holiday Catalog set titled Gather Together.  You may remember I used that set last week for the Fall/Pumpkin card.  You are getting sneak peeks at the great products coming up in a little over a week.

I used the Stitched Nested Labels die to showcase the chick.  I cut off the top of it straight and it makes the perfect banner.  I used some creative license on the coloring of the bird.  To tie that to the DSP, I used the Nature’s Twine wrapped around the banner.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you will return on Monday for another week of new products!

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.
