Knot Good

Sorry that I came back for a few days and then disappeared again.  We are getting new windows in our house.  Out with those wooden windows that are impossible to get open!!  New windows are awesome, and we are almost finished.  So now I can get back to stamping!

During my stamping absence, a friend hurt her back simply by bending over.  When I was preparing for my Stamp Club, which met yesterday, I came across the Back On Your Feet stamp set.  I knew I had to make a card that I could send to her.

 

 

I kept the card very clean and simple.  Other than the coloring, which does not take long at all, this is a super quick card to make.  My favorite kind of card!

The thought / word bubble was made using the Ballon Bouquet Punch.  I simply cut off the little “knot” area at the bottom of the balloon.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will return the rest of the week.  Also I will be participating in the InKing Royalty Blog Hop on Wednesday.  You would not want to miss all of the great ideas you will see on the hop.

A Little Rain

I was so happy when Fable Friends carried over to the new Annual Catalog.  It reminds me of the childrens fairy tales of my youth.  Another of our Facebook challenges last week was simple an Animal.  I debated for just a minute and then went with the Goose from Fable Friends.

 

 

I paired a couple of stamp sets to make this card.  I love that the Goose is wearing a raincoat, so that was my starting point.  I wanted to give her a bright and cheery coat to wear in the rain.

I paired High Tide to get the puddled water and the grass.  The rain came from Birthday Backgrounds, and the sentiment from Love What You Do.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Framelits for the sign.  This is the trick again of cutting it out with the die leaving the excess length towards one end.   Then re-inserting it to the point you need for the proper length.  The stitching makes this so easy to do, as you simply press the stitches back onto the die.  That way you know it is lined up properly.

Magnolia Enjoy Today

I know there are a lot of Magnolia cards being shared.  I believe it is because the suite of products is just so darn beautiful!!  So I am sharing another one.  This is a pretty simple card in that there is not a lot to it.  I love the “clean” look of this one.

 

The gorgeous DSP is the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  It is the reverse (you know how much I love to use the reverse sides!) of the black background with the small flower above on it.  I layered it on a Whisper White piece to hopefully not have it blend into the base card.

The flower is stamped with Early Espresso Ink.  If you give it just a minute, then it does not bleed when you color it with the Stampin’ Blends.   I love using other than black for my outline a lot of times.  I have yet to have one bleed when the blends are used with it.  I colored the edges of the petals with the Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.  The leaves and stem are done using Light Mossy Meadow and Light Crumb Cake.

The sentiment is from the Good Morning Magnolia set as well.  Another plus in the column for this set is the sentiments. It is stamped in Mossy Meadow on Petal Pink card stock.  I punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch for a bit of a different shape.

Both the flower and sentiment are raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For just a touch of extra, I added a couple of the Gingham Gala Adhesive Back Sequins.  These are great for just a bit of extra texture but they don’t jump out at you!

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.  I have all of the supplies used at the bottom of the post.

Reminder:  It is middle of the month and the BONUS DAYS are half over!  During July, for every $50.00 of merchandise, you receive a $5.00 coupon to use in August.  There is no limit to the number of coupons you can receive!!

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.

Daisy Smiles

I have a very Happy card to share today.  At least I believe it is one that will make you SMILE!  I also added a technique that is not as often used as most.

 

I believe daisies are just Happy Flowers.  They seem to jump off of the card here.  I used both the old Daisy Punch and NEW Medium daisy punch today.  Each is two punched out flowers layered on top of each other.  I also added the Perennial Essence Floral Center to each flower.

The background is Direct Ink To Paper.  I simply opened the ink pad and drug it across the face of the Whisper White card stock.  When I have shared this technique before, it was done on Glossy card stock. This time I used just regular Whisper White, not even the Thick version.

The two colors I used are Pretty Peacock on the bottom and Seaside Spray on the upper section.  I went over it a second time in spots where I had lifted a tad early.  I like the light and dark that you get in doing this technique.  You do not want to press too hard.

The leaves are from the Daisy Lane Stamp set and are stamped in Granny Apple Green.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I love one stamp set cards!!  I stamped the Smile on a scrap of card stock and then only punched one end with the Pretty Label Punch.  I accomplished this by placing the piece of card stock inside the cutting area from the back.  It was smaller than the punch area, so it was easy to line up top and bottom and then just punch the one end.  I love playing with our punches to get different looks!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card base is 11 X 4 1/4
  • Layer is 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • Center layer is 3 7/8 X 3 3/8
  • White Center is 3 3/4 X 3 1/4

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.
